Hello Everyone, I am trying to create a CAD model of the Leopard 2 (A0-A4) to determine the approximate mass of the empty Leopard 2 turret shell. According to Spielberger the empty turret shell weighs 8,9 metric tons. At first i thought this was the weight without the special armor inserts but i was told by a Polish colleague of mine that that was the weight with the special armor inserts. So right now i am trying to create a CAD model of the empty Leopard 2 turret shell to determine its approximate weight and in turn the weight of its special armor inserts. I am using reference images, schematics, measurements of the actual vehicle, official documents to generate the model. In the end, the model will be an approximation but i am still trying to be as accurate as i can be. Now i would need constructive criticism /feed back to correct the most obvious flaws in my model. I would greatly appreciate your imput. Thank you all in advance! Empty turret shell during assembly: Turret with special armor inserts: My model so far (a work in progress):
