The battle tank Leopard 2 belongs to the standard equipment of the German armoured units. The current version of the tank is called tank A7. The main weapon is a 120mm cannon, a powerful KE ammunition (anti-armour) and the new explosive ammunition (HE - High Explosive), which can be used against other targets. A7 has also an air conditioner to cool down the electronics and a power additional unit, thus there is no need to run the main engine at higher power demand (check-point / field post). Besides Germany, there are also other nations using Leopard tank, called LEOBEN User Nations.
