Available to NATO forces, the Leopard C1 is a Canadian main battle tank.

History Edit

To replaced the Centurion, Canada acquired 127 Leopard C1 tanks (equivalent to Leopard 1A3 with laser rangefinder) in 1978–79 for its Land Forces. Most of these were stationed in Germany during the Cold War, with a few retained at Canadian Forces Base Gagetown, New Brunswick for training. In 1977 prior to delivery of these new Leopards the Canadian government leased 38 Leopard 1A1 tanks from the contractor in order to begin training crews from the 4th Canadian Mechanized Brigade Group (4CMBG) based in West Germany. These tanks equipped the Royal Canadian Dragoons (RCD) that competed against other NATO tank crews and won the Canadian Army Tank competition in 1977.

Ingame Edit

The Canadian Leopard C1 is actually a Leopard 1A3 with some local improvements which makes it fit somewhere between a West German Leopard 1A3 and a Leopard 1A4. It was bought from Germany as a replacement for the aging Centurion that were the Canadian MBTs of the day.

In ALB, Canadians have C1s both as a MBT and as a command tank.
