The Leopard 2A6 is a tier 9 Main Battle Tank originating from Germany, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked with a tier 9 Unlock Token, and unlocks a tier 10 Unlock Token, which can be used on the SPHINX, Leopard 2AX, or XM1A3.

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 Leopard 2A6 is little more than an uparmored and upgunned variant of the standard 2A5, which plays very similarly. With medium armor, good mobility, and an accurate gun, the 2A6 is a mid-range sniper and flanker. While not as heavily armored as other T8 MBTs, it is still capable of close fighting if needed.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Excellent gun depression
  • Accurate
  • High penetration
  • Strong turret armor.

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Slow aim-time
  • Large weakspot under the gun mantlet.
  • Mediocre hull armor (Without the armor upgrade).
  • Mediocre hull armor (Even with the armor upgrade).
  • With the design of the ammo rack being at the front of the hull, combined with terrible frontal armor thickness, the tank is easily penetrated and lit up by ATGMs or Sabot rounds from Tier 8 and onward (the tier you're playing at).
  • Mediocre damage per minute at Tier 9 while everyone else sports Ready Racks or higher caliber (125mm) cannons.

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

Upgrading the Spall Liner and Appliqué protection pack will somewhat improve the Leopard 2A6's overall survivability. As the 2A6's upgrade tree emphasizes firepower, early research should focus on this as well. Upgrading to the Improved Gun Stabilizer and Improved Gun Breech, along with better ammunition, will improve firepower against enemies, while minimizing exposure to return fire.

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 first 2A6 was delivered in 2001, and many of the German army's 2A5 units are being upgraded to the 2A6 configuration.
