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: 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.
