Named Regiments:BEE 5TH Armored Cavalry Regiment

 
5TH ARMORED CAVALRY REGIMENT  

Commander Colonel T. Rush


The Fifth Armored Cavalry Regiment, is one of the
newer units in the army (my collection) and started out a
few years ago with M1s and Brandleys from various
manufactures . As this unit is stationed in the western
desert it's one of the few not painted in woodland
MERDOC camouflage.













Tanker's Tuesday: AMX30

Tanker's Tuesday: Leopard 2






The Leopard 2 is a main battle tank developed by Krauss-Maffei in the early 1970s for the West German Army. The tank first entered service in 1979 and succeeded the earlier Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the German Army. Various versions have served in the armed forces of Germany and twelve other European countries, as well as several non-European nations. More than 3,480 Leopard 2s have been manufactured. The Leopard 2 first saw combat in Kosovo with the German Army and has also seen action in Afghanistan with the Danish and Canadian contributions to the International Security Assistance Force.
