Prototype history

The Leopard 2 is a third generation German main battle tank (MBT). Developed by Krauss-Maffei in the 1970s, the tank entered service in 1979 and replaced the earlier Leopard 1 as the main battle tank of the West German army. Various iterations of the Leopard 2 continue to be operated by the armed forces of Germany, as well as 13 other European countries, and several non-European countries, including Canada, Chile, Indonesia, and Singapore. Some operating countries have licensed the Leopard 2 design for local production and domestic development.

There are two main development tranches of the Leopard 2. The first encompasses tanks produced up to the Leopard 2A4 standard and are characterised by their vertically faced turret armour. 

The second tranche, from Leopard 2A5 onwards, has an angled, arrow-shaped, turret appliqué armour, together with other improvements. The main armament of all Leopard 2 tanks is a smoothbore 120 mm cannon made by Rheinmetall. This is operated with a digital fire control system, laser rangefinder, and advanced night vision and sighting equipment. The tank is powered by a V12 twin-turbo diesel engine made by MTU Friedrichshafen.


Following the end of the Gilded Leopard study in 1967, the West German government decided to focus on the Experimentalentwicklung (experimental development) in a 

feasibility study and to develop new components for upgrading the Leopard 1 and for use on a future main battle tank programme. 

At first 25 million DM were invested, but after the industry came to the conclusion that with such a low budget the development of the two projected testbeds was not possible, 

a total of 30 to 32 million DM was invested. The experimental development was contracted to the company Krauss-Maffei, but with the obligation to cooperate 

with Porsche for the development of the chassis and with Wegmann for the development of the turret.

Features, benefits

The "Leopard 2" was one of the most reliable tanks of its time. It was easy to maintain and rarely broke down. Another important advantage of the tank was its mobility. The "Leopard 2" quickly accelerated and had high combat maneuverability.

In the popular tank MMO game "World of Tanks," the "Leopard 2" is a popular tank. It has outstanding characteristics that help it win victories in virtual battles, and it is still in use today.

The "Leopard 2" self-assembly model is a collaboration between "Wargaming" and "Metal Time Workshop." The "WoT" logo is located on the model's bottom, and each kit comes with a bonus package from "Wargaming." It contains an activation code for the game, allowing players to start playing the most popular real-time tank online strategy, as well as the "T2" light tank + Slot + 7 Days of "WoT" premium account + 500 gold. An excellent start for a beginning online tanker!


The "Leopard 2" model features the recognizable design of the legendary medium tank, including a unique profile, turret, and chassis with six rollers and characteristic suspension, hatches, radiator grilles, and weapons. Textures and images are applied to the surfaces using electrochemical etching, giving the model a resemblance to the original combat vehicle. All model parts are made of stainless steel used in the food industry, consumer goods production, and toys. Assembling the "Leopard 2" model excludes any harm to the owner. Precise cutting allows models to be assembled without the use of additional tools, soldering, or gluing.

The assembled scale model of the "Leopard 2n" can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, and valuable prize for "WoT" fans, and can be used to create installations, layouts, or reconstructions of tank battles. 

It will take a worthy place on the stand with the collection of "Metal Time workshop" models and the "World of tanks" game. But its main purpose is technical creativity, joint modeling, and developing manual skills.

The "Metal Time" model kits encourage owners to study the history of technology and develop design skills. Each of our models has a unique serial number, making them objects for collection and exchange.  The "Metal Time" constructors' club is a growing community of people passionate about design.

All parts are separated and connected with light finger pressure, which eliminates possible cuts or pricks during the assembly process.

The Metal Time kits comprises small parts that, under particular conditions, may be hazardous to children under the age of 14 years. If children are to carry out the model assembly, parents' supervision should be ensured.


14 languages User's guides will lead you through assembling process. In coming up with design for creative people, there is no borderline between imagination and reality.

Models are made up of many, small parts, which may be dangerous to children under 14 years old. The assembly of the model by children under 14 should be carried out under the supervision of parents. Models research and assembly advance technical creativity skills inspire science and technology history research.

Models of Metal Time are active leisure and superb gifts, interior embellishments, installation elements, models and showcase stands.

To make them gatherable and exchangeable, each of our models is assigned a unique serial number. The Metal Time Owners' Club is a group of people who are zealous about designing.

The loyalty program of Metal Time presents owners of our construction sets with pleasant surprises. Our models do not require glue or adhesive. Each part snaps off the sheet, then firmly snaps together.
