I thought Australia might go Leo 2 when they got rid of the Leo 1's. We went Abrams instead. Something about German tanks. I like them.

That is a Finnish T-34 next to the Dutch Leopard 2A4, if visiting Finland be sure to check the Finnish Armour Museum in Parola.
https://www.panssarimuseo.fi/en/

Finland bought 120+ A4 Leopards in several batches from Germany, some are converted to engineer and AA roles but there are still 100 classed as MBTs, and 100 A6s from Netherlands.
So Finland fields 200 Leopards as MBTs, according to annual exchange of military information based on the Vienna document.

There are also Leopard 1 based engineering vehicles., even T-55s are still in use with Finnish modifications, these are mostly for the engineers equipped with minerollers.

Impressive how the Leopard was able to be adapted into multiple different varieties and sold. Apparently they weren't able to do the same with Challenger, or was it powerpack reliability that was the issue when it came to exports?

The tank that he mention, Turkish one. He was destroyed by ATGM (anti-tank guided missile), the Leopard dint get engaged in tank to tank combat situation. The size of detonation (was damn big), i think it hit ammo rack, from the LEFT SIDE - Driver view. And by tank design - frontal armor solid, side not so much, rear - what? Overall - Leo is good tank, mobile, serious gun, a server inside a tank - for tracking data and shooting on the target whit good-high chances of hitting it.

When you speak German you have to listen to the speeches of that Guy in the German Museum,he worked for the German Army Officer School and was responsible there for teaching about Russian Tanks and Tank Tactics and stuff like that.... and he can really explain how the Leopard was designed,the thoughts behind everything in the construction

due to ( economic ) politics we, the Dutch, got rid of the leopard. Dutch politics always seems to fail at that ( look @ what happend at WW2 )

Obsolete fossil fuel engines. That's not going to be durable. What research or decisions are being made about what to use as power plants for military vehicles in the future? Presumably battery-electrical engines would be safer than hydrogen-burning engines, as well as quieter, which can't hurt, operational surprise-wise.
