The Leopard 2A4 Evolution is a tier 8 Main Battle Tank originating from Germany, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the Leopard 2A5 as a side branch of the main Leopard variant tree.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Heavy armor : this vehicle's armor bounces more shots and takes more hits
  • High caliber: the high caliber weaponry deals an increased damage.

Player Recommendations[edit | edit source]

A more heavily armored variant on the standard Leopard chassis, the Leopard 2A4 Evolution is designed for heavy combat. Well armored against HEAT, and AP, and especially ATGM threats, the Evolution is more than capable of facing heavy fire in a way few Leopard variants can. It also retains the typical Leopard speed, maneuverability, and accuracy, making it an excellent jack of all trades capable of spearheading, flanking, and long-range fighting.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent gun depression
  • Accurate
  • Excellent mobility for an MBT
  • Strong hull armor
  • ATGM Resistance (PVE)

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Large weakspot under the gun mantlet
  • Mediocre turret armor

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the vehicle is defined by its firepower, early research should focus on this. Upgrading to the Improved Gun Stabilizer and Improved Ready Racks, along with better ammunition, will improve firepower while minimizing exposure to return fire. Another important upgrade early on would be the MTU Mt 883 Ka-500 Diesel Engine, which improves the mobility even further.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Advanced Muzzle Reference System
  • Improved Telescopic Lens
  • Improved Gun Breech
  • Improved Pioneer Tool Kit

Commander and Crew Skill Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Commander: Philipp Holzklau, to improve the aim speed and reload time.
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Quick Draw
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Secured Ammunition

The Leopard 2 Evolution AMAP modular appliqué package focuses on all-around protection against HEAT-based threats, better accounting for urban and lower threat engagements, as opposed to the standard doctrine of only frontal armor.
