Leopard 2 Firing

A Leopard 2A6 in real life, firing its main gun.

The Leopard 2 is a German main battle tank built by Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co KG based in Munich, Germany. The tank has been in service since 1979 and has seen a number of variants and upgrades since its inception. It is also used by nearly all of the western European countries as well as Greece, Turkey, Singapore, and Canada.

The most recent variant, the Leopard 2A6, features the Rheinmetall L55 smoothbore 120mm cannon, which an  upgrade over the previous L44 used on the M1A2 Abrams. The vehicle is also armed with a coaxial MG3 on the German version, with the Dutch and Swiss versions mounting the FN MAG and the MG 87 respectively. The top-mounted machine gun is usually the same as the coaxial one, but it can also be replaced with the M2 Browning for added firepower in urban environments.

The Leopard 2A6 is a vehicle featured in Battlefield 2: Euro Force as the main battle tank of the European Union alongside the Challenger 2. It is one of the two EU counterparts (alongside the Challenger 2) to the MEC T90, the USMC M1A2 Abrams, and the PLA Type 98. The difference between the MBTs are almost purely cosmetic, and all of them possess the same armor, damage, rate of fire, and velocity stats, among other things.

The MBTs are the heaviest land vehicles available to any of the factions. Armed with a cannon as its primary weapon, the Leopard 2 is capable of dealing significant damage to all manner of vehicle and infantry, although its slow rate of fire and inability to aim at a particularly steep angle make it unsuited to combat against aerial vehicles. As a secondary weapon, the L2A6 is armed with an M2HB which is capable of killing an infantryman in just two rounds, but lacks the punch of the main cannon and has no explosive radius. The L2A6's main cannon is equipped with only forty rounds to start, but the secondary weapon has infinite ammunition. However, the main cannon is limited only by the speed of the reload, while the coaxial machinegun has an overheat threshold where it will temporarily cease to be usable once overheated.

The passenger is armed with another M2, this one cupola-mounted, identical to the stationary M2 which is found as a static emplacement on certain maps, whose damage is higher than the coaxial MG's -- at 100 damage, making it a one-hit kill under the right conditions -- but whose rate of fire is noticeably lower than the coaxial's.

As with the other MBTs, the Leopard 2 has a smoke screen grenade which can be deployed by the driver to break line of sight.

The Leopard 2 has a slight advantage over the other tanks in that its weakest point (under the turret) is almost completely protected by the tank's armor, and is only exposed when the gun aims upward. However, it is slightly larger than the other tanks (apart from the Challenger 2), making it a bigger target.

In Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, the Leopard 2A5 is the main battle tank of the European Union, alongside the T-90 for Russian forces. The Leopard performs nearly identically to the USMC M1A2 Abrams and differs only in size as its turret is a bit larger than the Abrams's. The Leopard has two positions, a driver and a gunner. The driver has 100 rounds for the main gun while the gunner has 1000 rounds for the top-mounted M2 Browning.

The tank can easily destroy light vehicles and even light tanks as long as the driver watches out for their top mounted rocket launcher. Against enemy main battle tanks, the driver should either try to ambush the other or fire and maneuver around their target. Helicopters have the advantage against the Leopard, but if they fly low enough, they can be hit by the tank's main gun and brought down easily. Engineers also pose a threat with their anti-tank mines and rocket launchers and should be avoided.

The Leopard is seen in the mission Rolling Thunder along with the T-90 as the European Union's main battle tank.These are useful when taking out the Type 98 tanks in the very end of the mission
