What is the Leopard 2A6 Variant?

The Leopard 2A6 is a main battle tank (MBT) that was developed by the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) in the late 1990s. It is an upgraded version of the Leopard 2 tank, which has been in service with various countries since the 1970s.

Here are some key features and improvements of the Leopard 2A6:

It also has a secondary armament that includes a coaxial machine gun and an anti-aircraft machine gun.

Mobility: The Leopard 2A6 is powered by a 1,500 horsepower engine, which provides excellent mobility and speed on various terrains. It has a top speed of around 70 km/h (43 mph) on roads and can traverse difficult terrain with ease.
