Leopard 3 is at best a tactical-technical requirement draft at this point.

"Bild", what a waste of paper!

 

Seriously, everyone who takes "Bild" seriously as a news source merely displays his stupidity.

But it's not. The use of the word "prototype" implies that there's a program and a budget behind it and that the basic construction design has been finished. None of that is true. A "Leopard 3", should it ever be named like that, is still at least fifteen years away.

 

This is the Rheinmetall/IBD Deisenroth modernization of the Leopard 2 that Singapore bought. They will put in their own fire control system, and that's about it.

No, this is clearly the M113 Super Gavin fitted with a 140 mm lightweight turret.

What's this? Looks like modified Leo2, but is it real or just a concept photo?

OK, I stand corrected. Still interesting concept.
