Krauss-Maffei Group is a German manufacturer of injection molding machines, machines for plastics extrusion technology, and reaction process machinery. It was acquired by ChemChina in 2016. History: Krauss-Maffei was formed in 1931 from a merger of the two Munich firms of Maffei (founded 1838) and Krauss & Co. (founded 1860). Both belonged to the leading German makers of locomotives of various types. Maffei also built other steam-operated vehicles and, later, manufactured vehicles with combustion engines, including locomotives, trolleybuses and buses until the 1950s.
In the 1960s, Krauss-Maffei built several examples of the ML 4000 C′C′ diesel-hydraulic locomotive for demonstration and testing on American railroads. Southern Pacific Railroad and Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad participated in the tests, but both found the locomotives unsuitable for service in the rugged Rocky Mountains through which the two railroads ran. 1963 the company started production of the Leopard tank, 1973 production of Leopard 2. In the seventies they were involved in the development of the Transrapid magnetic levitation train. In 1999 the company merged with Mannesmann DEMAG.
Krauss-Maffei's defense and locomotive component was later spun off and merged with Wegmann and became the present-day company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW), which is independent of KraussMaffei Group.
In November 2018 Krauss-Maffei was the victim of a ransomware attack, leading to severe drawdown in the production.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krauss-Maffei

MH 25. Klapka György Lövészdandár - Tata
Hu. text: TÖRTÉNETE:
A dandár több mint öt évtizeddel ezelőtti megalakulása óta számos változáson ment keresztül. Jogelődje a 17. Önálló Nehézharckocsi és Rohamlöveg Ezred volt. Az alakulat felállítását 1950 októberében, a kiképzést pedig novemberben kezdték meg Székesfehérváron. 1953-ban diszlokált Bajra, megnevezése ekkor lett 31. Nehézharckocsi és Rohamlöveg Ezred. 1957-ben az ezred áttelepült jelenlegi laktanyájába, Tatára.
1961-ben a T-34-es harckocsikat lecserélték T-34 M típusúakra, majd 1962-ben – elsőként a Magyar Néphadseregben, – T–55-ös típusú harckocsikkal szerelték fel az alakulatot. 1978-ban ismét technikai változás következett, ekkor kapták meg a T–72-eseket. A katonai szervezet 1987-ben alakult át 25. Harckocsidandárrá, majd a rendszerváltás után felvette a Klapka György nevet. 1997-ben a megnevezés 25. Klapka György Gépesített Lövészdandárrá változott; az alakulatot egészen 2004 májusáig hívták így, ekkor vette fel a 25. Klapka György Könnyű Lövészdandár nevet, s ekkor került az alakulat alárendeltségébe a szolnoki Könnyű Vegyes Ezredből megalakult 25/88. Könnyű Vegyes Zászlóalj.
A haderő-átszervezés következtében az alakulat 2007. március 1-jétől az MH 25. Klapka György Lövészdandár nevet viseli.
2015.03.30-tól a 25/88. Könnyű Vegyes Zászlóalj kikerült a dandár alárendeltségéből.

A legszebb ajándékot vehették át az MH 25. Klapka György Lövészdandár harckocsizászlóaljának katonái egy nappal fegyvernemi ünnepük, azaz Szent Kristóf napja előtt. Július 24-én ünnepélyes keretek között adták át számukra a Honvédelmi és Haderőfejlesztési Program részeként beszerzett első négy darab, Leopard 2A4HU típusú harckocsit a tatai laktanyában.

Hu. text: A leopárd vagy más néven a párduc (Panthera pardus), a Panthera nembe tartozó négy nagymacskafaj egyike, ide tartozik még az oroszlán, a tigris és a jaguár. A párducok a nagymacskáknak a legősibb fejlettségi fokú csoportját alkotják. A jégkorszak idején és a harmadidőszak végén szinte egész Európában honosak voltak, egyedüli kivételt képeznek az északkeleti vidékek. A pliocénkori pusztai őspárducot (Panthera leiodon Weithofe) tekintjük legrégebbi képviselőjüknek, amelyet a görögországi Pikermi vidékéről és a fejér megyei Polgárdi klasszikus lelőhelyeiről ismerünk.
A leopárdot már Kis-Ázsiában és Egyiptomban is ismerték, majd a görög kultúra is megemlíti, ami természetes is, hiszen ez volt az élettere. A mükénéi kultúrában is ismerték, az Iliasz pedig leír egy párducvadászatot olyan élethűen, ami bizonysága annak, hogy Kis-Ázsiában megfigyelhették az állat viselkedését. A görögök közvetítésével került azután Bacchus szent állatának ismerete a rómaiakhoz, akik gyakran szerepeltették az állatviadalokon, egyes források szerint már Kr. e 186-ban is látható volt a párduc.
Nevének eredete:
Eredetileg úgy gondolták, hogy a leopárd hibrid faj, mely az oroszlán és a párduc kereszteződéséből jött létre, és így a leopárd általános elnevezése is ebből a hiedelemből fakad: leo, latin szó, melynek jelentése oroszlán, és a pard régies szó, melynek jelentése párduc. Korábban épp emiatt az etimológia miatt széles körben oroszlánpárd, illetve indusi macska névvel is illették. A nyelvújítás korában, mint megannyi állatot, a leopárdot is átkeresztelték, azonban elnevezése rövidesen kikopott a köznyelvből.
Megjelenése:
Testhossza 90–165 cm, nem számítva a farokhosszt, mely 60–110 cm. Tömege 23–91 kg. A legnagyobb talált példány 96,5 kg tömegű volt. Jellemző rá a nemi dimorfizmus, a nőstények mérete a hímekének mintegy kétharmada.
A legtöbb leopárd világos sárgásbarna vagy őz-barna, fekete pettyekkel, ám bundájuk színe nagyon eltérő lehet. A pettyek a fej felé haladva kisebbednek, a halovány hastájékon nagyobbak.  ...  https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leop%C3%A1rd

The leopard (Panthera pardus) is one of the five extant species in the genus Panthera, a member of the Felidae. It occurs in a wide range in sub-Saharan Africa, in small parts of Western and Central Asia, on the Indian subcontinent to Southeast and East Asia. It is listed as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List because leopard populations are threatened by habitat loss and fragmentation, and are declining in large parts of the global range. In Hong Kong, Singapore, Kuwait, Syria, Libya, Tunisia and most likely in Morocco, leopard populations have already been extirpated.  Contemporary records suggest that the leopard occurs in only 25% of its historical global range.
Leopards are hunted illegally, and their body parts are smuggled in the wildlife trade for medicinal practices and decoration.
Compared to other wild cats, the leopard has relatively short legs and a long body with a large skull. Its fur is marked with rosettes. It is similar in appearance to the jaguar, but has a smaller, lighter physique, and its rosettes are generally smaller, more densely packed and without central spots. Both leopards and jaguars that are melanistic are known as black panthers. The leopard is distinguished by its well-camouflaged fur, opportunistic hunting behaviour, broad diet, strength, and its ability to adapt to a variety of habitats ranging from rainforest to steppe, including arid and montane areas. It can run at speeds of up to 58 kilometres per hour (36 mph). The earliest known leopard fossils excavated in Europe are estimated 600,000 years old, dating to the late Early Pleistocene. Leopard fossils were also found in Japan.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard

Mark Sinclair (born July 18, 1967. -age 53- Alameda County, California, U.S.), known professionally as Vin Diesel, is an American actor, producer, director and screenwriter. He is best known for playing Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise, and is one of the highest-grossing actors of all time. Diesel began his career in 1990 but struggled to gain roles until he wrote, directed, produced, scored, and starred in the short film Multi-Facial (1995). This attracted the attention of Steven Spielberg, who was developing Saving Private Ryan (1998); Spielberg re-wrote elements of the film to allow Diesel to appear. Diesel subsequently voiced the titular character in The Iron Giant (1999) while gaining a reputation as an action star after headlining the Fast & Furious, XXX, and The Chronicles of Riddick film franchises.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vin_Diesel

Kicking up dust and sending grass flying. This is the last post in a series on this couple, spanning a couple days. The beginning is here. She was in estrus, and he was too young to mate. Both are three years old, and his prime will be around 5-6 years old. He needs to be able to mate several times with her and defend against other males, so he is focusing more on protecting his buffalo kill than mating this year. This all led to some prolonged encounters and fireworks. On this second encounter, we first spotted her in the tree and watched the romance unfold for about a half hour before our friend’s vehicle arrived. They were at a slightly different angle, and I like these shots by Kim more than my own, and she gave them to me to share. Both of the guides say they have never seen anything like that before. The leopard is a solitary creature, rarely seen in pairs except to mate.  source: wikipedia

The Leopard 2 is a main battle tank developed by Krauss-Maffei in the 1970s for the West German Army. The tank first entered service in 1979 and succeeded the earlier Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the German Army. It is armed with a 120 mm smoothbore cannon, and is powered by a V-12 twin-turbo diesel engine. Various versions have served in the armed forces of Germany and 12 other European countries, as well as several non-European nations, including Canada, Chile, Indonesia, Singapore, and Turkey. The Leopard 2 was used in Kosovo with the German Army, and has seen action in Afghanistan with the Dutch, Danish and Canadian contributions to the International Security Assistance Force, as well as seeing action in Syria with the Turkish Armed Forces against ISIS and the YPG.
There are two main development batches of the tank: the original models up to Leopard 2A4, which have vertically faced turret armour, and the improved batch, namely the Leopard 2A5 and newer versions, which have angled arrow-shaped turret appliqué armour together with other improvements. All models feature digital fire control systems with laser rangefinders, a fully stabilised main gun and coaxial machine gun, and advanced night vision and sighting equipment (first vehicles used a low-light level TV system or LLLTV; thermal imaging was introduced later on). The tank has the ability to engage moving targets while moving over rough terrain.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_2

Germany experimented with a number of casement tank studies in the early 1980's, key designations for the proposals were Kpz-3, VT-1-1, VT-1-2, VT-1-6 (which sugests other intervinung models) VT-2. Since the early 1970’s a number of West German companies have been working on conceptual designs for a successor to the Leopard 1 MBT.
This project has the name Kampfpanzer 3. (various projects then described – see later) Krupp MaK has also put forward a turretless design with two guns.The development of thsis can be traced back to the early 1970s when the company... designed a turretless tank with two guns (either 105mm rifled or 120mm smoothbore) The tank wass called the VT 1 (Versuchstrager). Both were only test rigs to prove the basic concept.
The VT 1-1 is based on the shortened chassis of the cancelled MBT-70 but with 5 road wheels. The tank is powered by the MTU 873 Ka-500 diesel installed in Leopard 2 uprated for VT from 1500 to 2000 hp giving the 38 ton vehicle a power-to weight ratio of 52.5 hp/ton. The VT 1-2 has a Rheinmetal automatic loader and the engine uprated to 2200 hp. The 3 man crew is at the front, with driver between commander and gunner.  ...  https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/german-casemate-tanks.820/

Lego (/ˈlɛɡoʊ/ LEG-oh, Danish: [ˈle̝ːko]; stylised as LEGO) is a line of plastic construction toys that are manufactured by The Lego Group, a privately held company based in Billund, Denmark. The company's flagship product, Lego, consists of variously coloured interlocking plastic bricks accompanying an array of gears, figurines called minifigures, and various other parts. Lego pieces can be assembled and connected in many ways to construct objects, including vehicles, buildings, and working robots. Anything constructed can be taken apart again, and the pieces reused to make new things. The Lego Group began manufacturing the interlocking toy bricks in 1949. Movies, games, competitions, and six Legoland amusement parks have been developed under the brand. As of July 2015, 600 billion Lego parts had been produced. In February 2015, Lego replaced Ferrari as Brand Finance's "world's most powerful brand". At certain points, investing in Lego sets was more valuable than investing in gold. ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lego
Leopard 2A4:
The most widespread version of the Leopard 2 family, the 2A4 models included more substantial changes, including an automated fire and explosion suppression system, an all-digital fire control system able to handle new ammunition types, and an improved turret with flat titanium/tungsten armour. The Leopard 2s were manufactured in eight batches between 1985 and 1992. All the older models were upgraded to 2A4 standard. Until 1994, Germany operated a total of 2,125 2A4s (695 newly built and the rest modified older versions), while the Netherlands had an additional 445 tanks. The 2A4 was also license manufactured in Switzerland as the Panzer 87 "Leopard" or Pz 87. This version included Swiss-built 7.5 mm MG 87 machine guns and communications equipment, and featured improved NBC protection system. Switzerland operated 380 Pz 87 tanks.[citation needed]
After 2000, Germany and the Netherlands found themselves with large stocks of tanks that they had no need for after the Cold War. These tanks were sold to NATO or friendly armies around the world. Among these buyers of the surplus tanks were Turkey (purchasing 354 vehicles), Greece (183), Sweden (160), Chile (140), Finland (139), Poland (128), Austria (114), Spain (108), Canada (107), Singapore (96), Norway (52), Denmark (51), and Portugal (37).  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_2

Hu. text: Páncélzat, védelmi képességek:
A Leopard 2 harmadik generációs, "Dorchester"-típusú nemrobbanó-reaktív (NERA) páncélt tartalmaz a vékony, de keményített acélból készült üreges páncélzatban. A torony mellső és oldalsó részei külső, a tornyon ék alakú kiegészítő önkorlátozó-robbanóreaktív (SLERA) páncéllemezeket kaptak a későbbi (A5, A6, A7). Ez a páncél több lövést is kibír, mivel az ERA és kerámia páncélokkal ellentétben nem semmisül meg működése közben. Védelmi képessége kinetikus energiával romboló (KE) lövedékkel szemben a toronyrészen 50–60 cm, a test homlokpáncélján részen 40–60 cm vastag hengerelt acéllemezzel egyenértékű, azonban a rendszer dinamikus működési elve miatt pontos érték nem határozható meg. A tesztek alapján a 120 mm-es urán APFSDS lőszerek 1,3 km távolságból, a 152 mm-es kumulatív és 105 mm-es wolfram APDS lőszerek közvetlen közelről sem képesek áttörni a páncélt akkor sem ha több egymást követő találat ér egy pontot. Az üreges formázott robbanótöltettel szembeni a védelem másfélszer nagyobb, mint az adott páncélrész kinetikus védelme.
Tűz elleni védekezésül 4 db 9 kg-os halonnal oltó oltókészülék található a vezető mögötti részben. Ezek 70 °C-os hőmérséklet felett automatikusan üzembe lépnek, de kézzel is elindíthatóak. Egy 2,5 kg-os, szintén halonnal oltó kézi készülék is van a löveg alatt. Teljes ABV védelemmel is ellátták, a Dräger NBC rendszer állandóan 4 mbar túlnyomást állít elő, a szűrők kívülről cserélhetők. Aknák elleni védelemül kiegészítő páncélzat található a fenéklemezekre szerelve.  source: Wikipedia

Die Another Day is a 2002 spy film and the twentieth film in the James Bond series produced by Eon Productions. It was produced by Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, and directed by Lee Tamahori. It is the fourth and final film to star Pierce Brosnan as MI6 agent James Bond; Halle Berry co-stars as NSA agent Jinx Johnson, the Bond girl. The plot follows Bond as he attempts to locate a mole in British intelligence who betrayed him and a British billionaire who is later revealed to be seemingly connected to a North Korean operative that he seemingly killed. Die Another Day marked the James Bond franchise's 40th anniversary; consequently, the film includes references to each of the preceding films. The film received mixed reviews; some critics praised Tamahori's direction, but many disliked its over-reliance on CGI, product placement and its unoriginal plot, as well as the villain. Many consider it one of the weakest entries in the franchise. Nevertheless, Die Another Day was the highest-grossing James Bond film up to that time unadjusted for inflation.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Die_Another_Day

Armour Protection:
The Leopard 2 uses spaced multilayer armour throughout the design. The armour consists of a combination of steel plates of different hardness, elastic materials and other non-metallic materials. Steel plates with high hardness and high ductility are used. The armour is a result of extensive research about the formation and penetration mechanism of shaped charge jets. The Leopard 2's armour might be based on the British Burlington armour, which had already been demonstrated to the Federal Republic of Germany in 1970. Later, in the mid-1970s, full details about Burlington were handed over to the West German government. The frontal arc of the Leopard 2's armour is designed to withstand large caliber kinetic energy penetrators and shaped charge projectiles. During the 1980s, it was estimated that the Leopard 2's front would resist 125 mm APFSDS rounds fired from a distance of 1,500 m.
The Leopard 2A4's armour has a maximum physical thickness of 800 millimetres (31 in) based on unofficial measurements and estimates made by former conscripts and professional soldiers of the German army. On the Leopard 2A5 and subsequent models, the thickness is increased by the wedge-shaped armour module to 1,500 millimetres (59 in) of KE protection.
The side and the rear of the tank protect against heavy machine guns, medium caliber rounds and older types of tank ammunition. The side of the hull is covered by armour skirts to increase protection against projectiles and RPGs. The frontal third of the hull sides is covered by heavy ballistic skirts, while the rest of the hull sides is covered by steel-reinforced rubber skirts. For increased protection against mines, the sides of the hull floor are sloped by 45° and the floor is reinforced with corrugations.   

Armour upgrades:
Following the Leopard 2's introduction into service in 1979, the armour has been gradually improved over the years. A modified version of spaced multilayer armour was introduced beginning with the 97th vehicle of the 6th production batch. The same batch also introduced an improved type of heavy ballistic skirts.
The Leopard 2A5 upgrade focused on increased armour protection. While upgrading a Leopard 2 tank to the Leopard 2A5 configuration, the roof covering the armour modules is cut open and new armour modules are inserted. New additional armour modules made of laminated armour are covering the frontal arc of the turret. They have a distinctive arrowhead shape and improve the protection against both kinetic penetrators and shaped charges. The side skirts also incorporate improved armour protection. Furthermore, a 25 mm-thick spall liner reduces the danger of crew injuries in case of armour penetration.
The Leopard 2A7 features the latest generation of passive armour and belly armour providing protection against mines and IEDs. The Leopard 2A7 is fitted with adapters for mounting additional armour modules or protection systems against RPGs.
For urban combat, the Leopard 2 can be fitted with different packages of modular armour. The Leopard 2A4M CAN, Leopard 2 PSO (Peace Support Operations) and the Leopard 2A7 can mount thick modules of composite armour along the flanks of turret and hull, while slat armour can be adapted at the vehicle rear. The armour modules provide protection against the RPG-7, which depending on the warhead can penetrate between 280 millimetres (11 in) and 600 millimetres (24 in) of steel armour. The Leopard 2A6M CAN increases protection against rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) by including additional slat armour.
Additional armour packages have been developed by a number of different companies. IBD Deisenroth has developed upgrades with MEXAS and AMAP composite armour, the latter is being used on Singaporean and Indonesian Leopard 2 tanks. RUAG has developed an armour upgrade utilizing their SidePRO-ATR composite armour. This upgrade was first presented on the IAV 2013.
The Leopard 2A4M and 2A6M add an additional mine protection plate for the belly, which increases protection against mines and IEDs.

Armour protection estimates:
Estimated levels of protection for the Leopard 2 range from 590–690 mm RHAe on the turret, 600 mm RHAe on the glacis and lower front hull on the Leopard 2A4, to 920–940 mm RHAe on the turret without the wedge armour, 620 mm RHAe on the glacis and lower front hull on the Leopard 2A6 against kinetic projectiles.
According to a description page hosted by the Federation of American Scientists, the armour of the Leopard 2A4 is believed to provide protection equivalent to 700 mm armour steel (RHA) against kinetic energy penetrators and 1000 mm RHA against shaped charge warheads.  ...  source: wikipedia

Chanel (/ʃəˈnɛl/, French pronunciation: [ʃanɛl]) is a French fashion house that focuses on women's high fashion and ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods and accessories. The company is owned by Alain Wertheimer and Gérard Wertheimer, grandsons of Pierre Wertheimer, who was an early business partner of the couturière Coco Chanel. In her youth, Gabrielle Chanel gained the nickname "Coco" from her time as a chanteuse. As a fashion designer, Coco Chanel catered to women's taste for elegance in dress, with blouses and suits, trousers and dresses, and jewellery (gemstone and bijouterie) of simple design, that replaced the opulent, over-designed, and constrictive clothes and accessories of 19th-century fashion. The Chanel product brands have been personified by male and female fashion models, idols and actresses, including Inès de La Fressange, Catherine Deneuve, Carole Bouquet, Vanessa Paradis, Nicole Kidman, Jackie Kennedy, Anna Mouglalis, Audrey Tautou, Keira Knightley, Kristen Stewart, Pharrell Williams, Jennie Kim, Cara Delevingne, and Marilyn Monroe.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chanel

The Rheinmetall Rh-120 is a 120 mm smoothbore tank gun designed and produced by the West German Rheinmetall-DeTec AG company, developed in response to Soviet advances in armor technology and development of new armored threats. Production began in 1974, with the first version of the gun, known as the L/44 as it was 44 calibers long, used on the German Leopard 2 tank and soon produced under license for the American M1A1 Abrams and other tanks. The 120-millimeter (4.7 in) gun has a length of 5.28 meters (17.3 ft), and the gun system weighs approximately 3,317 kilograms (7,313 lb).
By 1990, the L/44 was not considered powerful enough to deal with future Soviet armour, which stimulated an effort by Rheinmetall to develop a better main armament. This first involved a 140-millimeter (5.5 in) tank gun named Neue Panzerkanone 140 ("new tank gun 140"), but later turned into a compromise which led to the development of an advanced 120 mm gun, the L/55, based on the same internal geometry as the L/44 and installed in the same breech and mount. The L/55 is 1.32 meters (4.3 ft) longer, giving increased muzzle velocity to ammunition fired through it. As the L/55 retains the same barrel geometry, it can fire the same ammunition as the L/44.
This gun was retrofitted into German and Dutch Leopard 2s, and chosen as the main gun of the Spanish Leopard 2E and the Greek Leopard 2HEL. It was tested on the British Challenger 2 as a potential replacement for its current weapon, the rifled L30 120 mm cannon.
A variety of ammunition has been developed for use by tanks with guns based on Rheinmetall's original L/44 design. This includes a series of kinetic energy penetrators, such as the American M829 series, and high explosive anti-tank warheads. Recent ammunition includes a range of anti-personnel rounds and demolition munitions. The LAHAT, developed in Israel, is a gun-launched missile which has received interest from Germany and other Leopard 2 users, and is designed to defeat both land armour and combat helicopters. The Israelis also introduced a new anti-personnel munition which limits collateral damage by controlling the fragmentation of the projectile.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rheinmetall_Rh-120

Zielgeräte:
Als Hauptzielgerät dient das EMES 15 mit einem CE628-Laser von Zeiss-Eltro Optronic als elektro-optischer Entfernungsmesser. Der Nd:YAG-Laser misst Entfernungen bis 9990 Meter auf 10 Meter genau, wobei lediglich Schussentfernungen zwischen 200 und 4000 Metern berücksichtigt werden. Bei Messungen unter 200 Metern wird vom Feuerleitrechner mit dem Aufsatzwert für 1000 Meter gerechnet, Werte über 4000 Meter müssen manuell eingegeben werden. Bei Mehrfachechos des Lasers kann ab dem Leopard 2A5 zusätzlich zum Letztecho das Erstecho gewählt werden. Mit dem zwölffach vergrößernden Hauptzielfernrohr (HZF) gekoppelt ist es die primäre Zieloptik für den Richtschützen. In der Betriebsart STAB EIN ist das EMES 15 die führende Optik für Turm und Bordkanone. Als zweites Zielgerät steht dem Richtschütze das Turmzielfernrohr (TZF) FERO Z18 zur Verfügung. Beim Ausfall der Feuerleitanlage dient es als Notoptik. Eine Skala im Strichbild unterstützt beim Einstellen der geschätzten Schussentfernung.
Ebenfalls integriert in das EMES 15 ist ab 1983 das Wärmebildgerät WBG-X von Zeiss; es ersetzt das PZB 200 als Nachtzielgerät. Eine vier- und zwölffache Vergrößerung erlaubt das Beobachten und Bekämpfen sowohl am Tag wie auch in der Nacht. Mit einem Detektor aus Quecksilber-Kadmium-Tellurid, der auf etwa −190 °C gekühlt werden muss, verlangt das WBG eine Vorkühlzeit von ungefähr 15 Minuten. Die Anzeige ist grün-monochrom mit einer wählbaren Polarität von schwarz oder weiß, so dass Wärmequellen besonders hell oder dunkel erscheinen. Bei ausreichendem Temperaturunterschied einzelner Objekte sind diese in einem beobachteten Geländeabschnitt sehr gut zu erkennen. Starker Regen, Schnee sowie dichter Nebel mit hohem Wasseranteil reduzieren die Reichweite des Wärmebildgerätes.
Der Kommandant verfügt mit dem Periskop R17 (PERI R17) über ein eigenes Beobachtungs- und Zielgerät, jedoch ohne Entfernungsmessfunktion. Die stabilisierte Optik mit zwei- und achtfacher Vergrößerung erlaubt ein unabhängiges Arbeiten vom Richtschützen. So kann der Kommandant selbständig Ziele beobachten, dem Richtschützen Ziele zuweisen und ihn überwachen. Dazu verfügt das PERI über folgende Einstellmöglichkeiten: Mit dem Drücken der KH-Taste (Kommandant führt Hauptwaffe) schwenkt der Turm auf die Visierline des PERI ein, das Ziel kann vom Richtschützen oder vom Kommandanten bekämpft werden. Mit der Auswahl ZÜ (Zielüberwachung) schwenkt dagegen das PERI auf die Visierline des EMES ein, der Kommandant sieht das Ziel des Richtschützen. Durch Umschalten auf den Direktsichtadapter – eine optische Verbindung zwischen EMES und PERI – ist das vom Richtschützen genutzte Bild des EMES übertragbar.
Mit dem PERI R17A2 und dem integrierten Wärmebildgerät TIM (Thermal Imaging Modul) wird ab dem Leopard 2A5 die Führbarkeit bei Nacht erleichtert. Zur besseren Rundumsicht wurde es an die linke Lukenseite des Kommandanten verlegt. Der Ausblickkopf des PERI ist erhöht aufgesetzt. Als Wärmebildmodul wurde das OPHELIOS-P verbaut, dessen Bild über einen Monitor direkt unterhalb der Winkelspiegel ausgegeben wird. Es ist zusätzlich möglich, das Bild des EMES darzustellen. Das WBG hat eine vierfache, zwölffache und 24-fache Vergrößerung. Zwei feste Indexpositionen für 6 Uhr und 12 Uhr ermöglichen es, die Visierlinie des PERI unabhängig von der Turmstellung zur Längsachse der Panzerwanne auszurichten.
Mit der Nachrüstung des Attica-Wärmebildmoduls, das sich in den kanadischen, dänischen sowie in einigen deutschen Panzern wiederfindet, wird dem Kommandanten und Richtschützen eine wesentlich bessere Zielerfassung ermöglicht, da durch die höhere thermische Auflösung geringere Temperaturunterschiede zwischen Objekt und Umgebung klarer erkennbar sind. Das Wärmebildgerät der dritten Generation wird von KMW auch im A7+ eingesetzt und findet sich ebenfalls im Puma (Schützenpanzer) sowie in der Aufklärungsdrohne Luna wieder.
Ein Feldjustierspiegel nahe der Mündung der Kanone ermöglicht dem Richtschützen beim Einschalten der Feldjustieranlage Korrekturen der Justage der Zielausrüstung auf die Hauptwaffe, um Abweichungen der Seelenachse des Rohres auszugleichen, die durch thermische sowie mechanische Belastungen auftreten. Hauptzielfernrohr und Kanone befinden sich bei eingeschalteter Justieranlage in einem konstruktiv festen Winkel, worauf vom Spiegel ein Referenzstrahl reflektiert wird, mit der sich Abweichungen zur Justiermarke erkennen lassen.  ...  source: Wikipedia  https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_2

Fire control:
The standard fire control system found on the Leopard 2 is the German EMES 15 fire control system with a dual magnification stabilised primary sight. The primary sight has an integrated neodymium yttrium aluminium garnet Nd:YAG laser rangefinder and a 120 element Mercury cadmium telluride, HgCdTe (also known as CMT) Zeiss thermographic camera, both of which are linked to the tank's fire control computer. A backup 8x auxiliary telescope FERO-Z18 is mounted coaxially for the gunner. The commander has an independent periscope, the Rheinmetall/Zeiss PERI-R 17 A2. The PERI-R 17 A2 is a stabilised panoramic periscope sight designed for day/night observation and target identification; it provides an all round view with a traverse of 360°. The thermal image from the commander's periscope is displayed on a monitor inside the tank. Initial production tanks were not equipped with a thermal sight, due to the sight not being ready, and instead temporarily substituted the PZB 200 low light TV system (LLLTV).
The fire control suite is capable of providing up to three range values in four seconds. The range data is transmitted to the fire control computer and is used to calculate the firing solution. Also, because the laser rangefinder is integrated into the gunner's primary sight, the gunner is able to read the digital range measurement directly. The maximum range of the laser rangefinder is up to 10,000 m with a measuring accuracy within 10 m at this range. The combined system allows the Leopard 2 to engage moving targets at ranges of up to 5,000 meters whilst itself being on the move over rough terrain. ...  wikipedia/Leopard-2

A vezető a harckocsi orrában, a középvonaltól kissé jobbra ül. Munkáját három periszkóp segíti, melyből a középső lecserélhető infravörös éjjellátóval ellátott periszkópra, a vezető ülése alatt található egy vészkijárat is. A toronyban jobb elülső oldalán foglal helyet az irányzó, mögötte és kicsivel felette a parancsnok. A töltőkezelő pedig a lövegtől balra foglal helyet. A küzdőtér mögött található a motortér, ahol az MTU MB 873 Ka-501 típusú 47,6 literes, V-12-es turbófeltöltős Diesel-motor található. Az egész rendszert elektromos felügyeleti és hibaérzékelő rendszerrel is ellátták, amely bármilyen meghibásodás esetén a sofőr előtti panelen jelez. A korai változatok még AEG-Telefunken FLT2 analóg tűzvezető rendszert használtak, amiket a később Krupp-Atlas EMES-15 digitális rendszerrel váltottak fel (az első kétszáz Leopard 2 esetében ideiglenesen PZB200 – nem infravörös, hanem fényerősítő elven működő éjjellátó – került beépítésre, mivel akkor még nem készült el az EMES-15.). E módosítás következtében mozgás közben, egyenetlen terepen mozgó célpontokat is nagyobb eredményességgel támadhatnak. A pontos célzáshoz öt adat szükségeltetik: a cél távolsága és sebessége, a saját harckocsi sebessége, dőlésszöge és a lőszer típusa. A találat esélye egyforma mind menetben, mind álló helyzetben. Az EMES 15 mellett van egy tartalék célzóberendezést beszeretek. A FERO-Z18, amely 8x nagyítással rendelkezik, a löveg mellett, jobbra  található. A parancsnok egy független PERI-R 17 A2 panoráma periszkópot kapott, amely 360°-os látószöggel és 2x vagy 8x nagyítással, éjjellátó üzemmóddal és célpont azonosító funkcióval is rendelkezik. E periszkóp, melyet a Rheinmetall Defence Electronics és Zeiss Optronik GmbH szállít, segítségével, szűkség esetén, a parancsnok átveheti az irányzó feladatkörét is. A parancsnok mögött, a torony baloldali, hátsó részén helyezték el a SEM25 / 35 rádiót.

Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft AG (AEG) (German: "General electricity company") was a German producer of electrical equipment founded as the Deutsche Edison-Gesellschaft für angewandte Elektricität in 1883 in Berlin by Emil Rathenau. After World War II its headquarters moved to Frankfurt am Main.
In 1967 AEG joined with its subsidiary Telefunken AG creating Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft AEG-Telefunken. In 1985 Daimler-Benz purchased the AEG-Telefunken Aktiengesellschaft, which was renamed to AEG Aktiengesellschaft and wholly integrated the company in 1996 into Daimler-Benz AG (1998:DaimlerChrysler). The remains of AEG became part of Adtranz and Deutsche Aerospace (1998: DASA, today EADS).
After acquiring the AEG household subsidiary AEG Hausgeräte GmbH in 1994, in 2005 Electrolux obtained the rights to the brand name AEG, which it now uses on some of its products. The AEG name is also licensed to various brand partners under the Electrolux Global Brand Licensing program.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AEG

A Bundeswehr két fő lőszertípust alkalmaz hozzá, a DM-33 KE APFSDS-T leválóköpenyes, űrméret alatti szárnystabilizált páncéltörő lőszert és a DM-12 MZ HEAT-MP-T többcélú, szárnystabilizált kumulatív lőszert. Ezekkel 6000 m-es távolságra lévő célokat is meg tud semmisíteni. A lőszerből összesen 42 db-ot vihet magával. A torony bal oldalán egy ajtót alakítottak ki a lőszer rakodásához.
A korai változatok még AEG-Telefunken FLT2 analóg tűzvezető rendszert használtak, amiket a később Krupp-Atlas EMES-15 digitális rendszerrel váltottak fel. Képes arra, hogy mozgás közben, egyenetlen terepen mozgó célpontokat támadjon. A pontos célzáshoz öt adatra van szükség: a cél távolsága és sebessége, a saját harckocsi sebessége, dőlésszöge és a lőszer típusa. A találat esélye egyforma mind menetben, mind álló helyzetben. A parancsnok a PERI optikai rendszerrel figyelheti meg a környezetet. Mind a PERI, mint az EMES adott változatai közel másfélszer nagyobb távolságig hatásosak, mint a velük egyidős orosz berendezések.  ...  source: Wikipedia.org   https://hu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leopard_2

Diehl Defence GmbH & Co. KG is a German arms manufacturer and a subsidiary of the Diehl Stiftung with headquarters in Überlingen. Diehl Defence mainly produces missiles and ammunition. Diehl BGT Defence was founded in 2004 as result of the merger of Bodenseewerke Gerätetechnik GmbH and Diehl Munitionssysteme GmbH & Co. KG. Diehl BGT Defence and Diehl Defence Holding are merged into Diehl Defence in February 2017.
In 1960, Bodenseewerke Gerätetechnik became the prime contractor for the European production of the American Sidewinder AIM-9B air-to-air missile. Based on the experience with the Sidewinder, Diehl recently developed a progressive new seeker for a new type of short-range air-to-air missile - the IRIS-T. IRIS-T is currently being adopted by the German Air Force and other European air forces.  ...  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diehl_Defence

The Leopard 2 is propelled by the MTU MB 873 Ka-501 engine, which provides 1,500 PS (1.1 MW) at 2600 RPM and 4,700 N⋅m (3,500 lb⋅ft) of torque at 1600-1700 RPM. The MTU MB 873 Ka-501 is a four-stroke, 47.7 litre, 90° V-block 12-cylinder, twin-turbocharged and intercooled, liquid-cooled diesel engine (with multi-fuel capability), which has an estimated fuel consumption rate of around 300 litres per 100 km on roads and 500 litres per 100 km across country, and is coupled to the Renk HSWL 354 gear and brake system. The Renk HSWL 354 transmission has four forward and two reverse gears, with a torque converter and is completely automatic, with the driver selecting the range. The Leopard 2 has four fuel tanks, which have a total capacity of approximately 1160 litres, giving a maximum road range of about 500 km. The propulsion pack is capable of driving the tank to a top road speed of 68 km/h (limited to 50 km/h during peacetime by law), and top reverse is 31 km/h. The power pack can be changed in the field in 35 minutes. The engine and transmission is separated from the crew compartment through a fireproof bulkhead. An enhanced version of the EuroPowerPack, with a 1,650 PS (1.2 MW) MTU MT883 engine has also been trialled by the Leopard 2.
The Leopard 2 has a torsion bar suspension and has advanced friction dampers. The running gear consists of seven dual rubber-tyred road wheels and four return rollers per side, with the idler wheel at the front and drive sprocket at the rear. The tracks are Diehl 570F tracks, with rubber-bushed end connectors, which have removable rubber pads and use 82 links on each track. For use in icy ground, up to 18 rubber pads can be replaced by the same number of grousers, which are stored in the vehicle's bow when not in use. The upper part of the tracks are covered with side skirts.
The German Army has prioritised mobility in its Leopard 2, which might be the fastest main battle tank in the world.  ...  source: Wikipedia/Leopard_2

Hu. text article: Újabb Leopard-korszerűsítés
Szerző: Mr. Trautmann Balázs | 2019. 04. 01. 10:17
A német parlament, a Bundestag költségvetési bizottsága rábólintott a Bundeswehr kérésére, így újabb, komoly Leopard 2-es modernizációs program indulhat el.
A 428 millió eurós keret nagy részét el is viszi majd a 101 darab Leopard 2A6 és A6M2-es harckocsi átépítése Leopard 2A7V változatra. A tervek szerint a modernizációs folyamat 2026-ig zárulhat majd le. Ez a 2017 májusában kötött, 104 darabos (68 Leopard 2A4, 16 Leopard 2A6 és 20 Leopard 2A7) A7V-átépítést követő második, komoly megrendelés, amely gyakorlatban a teljes, hadrendben tartani szánt flotta modernizálását jelenti.
Az első „csomag” lánctalpasait 2020 és 2023 között kell leszállítania a  Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW)-nek és a Rheinmetallnak.  https://honvedelem.hu/hatter/ujabb-leopard-korszerusites/

Hu. text: Európában béke van, de szükség van fegyverekre
author: Mr. Kardos Ernő | 2020. augusztus 8. 10:12
„A magyar hadsereg fegyverkezése nem okoz feszültséget, hisz a románok, és a szlovákok még nálunk is dinamikusabban újítják meg fegyverkészleteiket” – hívja fel a figyelmet a modern német tankok beszerzésével kapcsolatban Szenes Zoltán egyetemi tanár, a Magyar Hadtudományi Társaság elnöke. Az egykori vezérkari főnök szerint, egy sikeres országnak minden területen sikeresnek kell lennie, így a honvédelem területén is. Azt már mi tesszük hozzá, hogy talán költeni kellene egészségügyre vagy oktatásra is. Az Orbán kormány honvédelmi költségvetése a jövő évben 778 milliárd forintot szán a katonai védelemre, tíz év alatt pedig 3500 milliárd forintot tervez költeni a haderő fegyverzet-korszerűsítésére. Magyarországnak ugyanakkor nincs is igazán katonai fenyegetettsége, még a stratégiai dokumentumok is igen kis valószínűségűnek tartják egy esetleges katonai konfliktus kitörését. A Nemzeti Közszolgálati Egyetem tanárával, Szenes Zoltánnal az új Leopard tankokról, a fegyverekre elköltött ezermilliárdokról, illetve a háborús konfliktusok lehetőségéről beszélgettünk.   ...  https://hirklikk.hu/kozelet/europaban-beke-van-de-szukseg-van-fegyverekre/367833?fbclid=IwAR3i_L8cREys7rmKBgHeFedoyjPGQphok3sFQC_KL4ntaeU_bnrFexwZnlE

Leopard 2A7+:
The Leopard 2A7+ was first shown to the public during the Eurosatory 2010, featuring the label "Developed by KMW – tested and qualified by the German Ministry of Defence". The Leopard 2A7+ has been tested by the Bundeswehr under the name UrbOp (urban operations).
The Leopard 2A7+ is designed to operate both in low intensity and high intensity conflicts. The tank's protection has been increased by modular armour; the frontal protection has been improved with a dual-kit on the turret and hull front, while 360° protection against RPGs and mine protection increase the survivability of the tank in urban operations. The modular armour's system components were first used by Canada in Afghanistan. It can fire programmable HE munitions and the turret mounted MG3 has been replaced with a stabilised FLW 200 remotely controlled weapon station. The mobility, sustainability and situational awareness have also been improved.
In December 2018, Hungary ordered 44 2A7+s, making them the second operator of the improved version, after Qatar   source: wikipedia/Leopard_2

The new Leopard 2 PSO (Peace Support Operations) variant is designed specially for urban warfare, which had been encountered in peacekeeping operations with increasing frequency. Therefore, the Leopard 2 PSO is equipped with more effective all-around protection, a secondary weapons station, improved reconnaissance ability, a bulldozer blade, a shorter gun barrel (for manoeuvring on urban streets at the expense of fire range), non-lethal armament, close-range surveillance ability (through camera systems), a searchlight and further changes to improve its perseverance and mobility in a built-up non-wide open area. These features are similar to the Tank Urban Survival Kit for the American M1A2 Abrams
