Description

Nearly twenty years since the release of Item 35271 (1/35 Leopard 2 A6) in 2004, Tamiya is proud to welcome the Leopard 2 A7V with totally new parts into 1/35 Military Miniature Series.

The Leopard 2 A7V is an improved version of A7 (A7 is an improved version of A6 and the “V” in the A7V designation stands for “verbessert’’ (improved) ), and features additional hull front armour and side skirts for improved defence. The suspension was also improved to help deal with the tank’s extra weight. The A7V inherits the A6’s L/55 120mm gun, but with the updated shell, the A7V can take on enemy armour up to five kilometres away.

Units began receiving the A7V in September 2021 and A7Vs saw further improvements such as turret-top stowage boxes and main sight visor. It seems with that this venerable tank’s 40-year career is set to carry on into the future thanks to its continued evolution.
