The Leopard 2A5 is a tier 8 Main Battle Tank originating from Germany, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked from the Leopard 2, and unlocks a tier 9 Unlock Token, which can be used on the CRAB, B1 Draco, B1 Centauro 120, Leopard 2A6, or M1A2 Abrams SEP v.3. It also leads to the Leopard 2A4 Evolution, 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]

The general playstyle of the Leopard 2A5 is like that of its successors. With medium armor, good mobility, and an accurate gun, the 2A5 is a mid-range sniper and flanker. While not as heavily armored as some of the other T8 MBTs, it is still capable of fighting up close if needed.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent gun depression
  • Accurate
  • Excellent mobility for an MBT

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Weak spot under the gun mantlet

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 better ammunition, will increase damage output against targets, while minimizing exposure to return fire. Another important early upgrade would be the D570P0 Tracks, to further improve mobility.

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: Juan Carlos, to improve the aim speed and crew stats
  • Driver: Spin to Win, Off-Road Driving
  • Gunner: Sharpshooter, Do the Twist
  • Loader: Rapid Fire, Explosive Shells/Preparation

Continued improvements to the Leopard 2 culminated in the major overhaul of the 2A5 adding composites to the front and sides of the turret, the driver's side of the hull, and the glacis. The overall vehicle was improved from the ground up while retaining both firepower and mobility, making it a well-rounded battlefield threat.
