The Leopard 1A5 is the last in the Leopard 1 line of MBTs.

HistoryEdit

In 1980 a research program was undertaken to study further improvements to the Leopard 1, providing it with a completely modern fire control system and fully effective night/bad-weather vision system. This was going to require even more room than the larger turret from the 1A3/1A4 models, so the decision was made to base the upgrades on the earlier models which were no longer competitive.

The resulting Leopard 1A5 was based on 1225 vehicles of the Leopard 1A1A1 model. The turrets were again modified for the 1A5, with a larger section at the back, both in order to store all of the new equipment, as well as to move more of the ammunition into the rear turret, as opposed to the left side of the driver where it had traditionally been stored. The storage locker extended the turret almost to the rear of the tank when the gun was facing forward. The new turret was also able to mount the newer 120 mm gun from the Leopard 2 if desired, although this option has not been used.

The first modified vehicle was delivered in early 1987. Since then almost all users of the Leopard 1 have also applied similar changes to their own vehicles, and in most ways the 1A5 can be considered the "standard" Leopard 1 today.

OverviewEdit

European EscalationEdit

 It is acquired after the Leopard 1A4. It has higher accuracy (+1), damage (+1) and a higher operational range (+50). This results in slightly improved fuel efficiency (1.54 liters per km instead of 1.67 liters per km). This also makes the Leopard 1A5 the most fuel efficient tank in the game.
