The Leopard 2AX, formerly known as Leopard 2A7-140, is a tier 10 Main Battle Tank originating from Germany, and is sold by Sophie Wölfli. It can be unlocked with a tier 10 Unlock Token, and is the end of the Leopard Variant line.

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]

Featuring a powerful 130mm cannon and strong turret, the Leopard 2AX is a jack of all trades tank that exchanges heavy armor for mobility and speed. The 2AX is an excellent medium to long range hull down sniper and flanker, but it lacks the armor to fight head on against better armed or armored MBTs.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Pros[edit | edit source]

  • Good gun depression
  • Excellent accuracy
  • Highest AP penetration among MBTs
  • Deadly HEAT Round
  • Good top speed
  • Strong turret armor

Cons[edit | edit source]

  • Poor aim-time
  • Large weak spot under the gun mantlet
  • Less mobile, compared to 2A6

Upgrade Suggestions[edit | edit source]

As the Leopard 2AX is defined by its firepower, early research should focus on these as well. Upgrading to the Improved Gun Stabilizer and Improved Ready Racks, along with better ammunition, will improve firepower against targets, while minimizing exposure to return fire. Upgrading early to the relatively cheap Improved Tracks increases the otherwise mediocre acceleration, and thus overall mobility.

Retrofit Suggestions[edit | edit source]

  • Ballistic Computer Lvl. 2
  • 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: No-skill (Auto-Loader)

The Leopard 2AX contains many technological and modern improvements, including stock appliqué composite armor on the roof and sides, which provide increased resistance to autocannons and shaped charges. A larger turret sports a 130mm cannon, although it provides no increase to protection.

History[edit | edit source]

The Leopard 2AX is a main battle tank that boasts penetration power far superior to its Leopard 2 predecessor, thanks to its 130mm smoothbore cannon. The new cannon prompted the addition of counterweights on the rear of the vehicle, which negated the weight but resulted in more difficult handling.
