  1. Leopard 2(A0-A4) Volume/Mass Study Model

    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):

  3. Version 1.1


    This is my first publich scenario. Situated in a Canadian/finish/northern Sweden like environment, in a mix of closed and canalized terrain with some farmland. Can be played as single (1 recon section, 2 Mekinf platoons and 2 Tk platoons, and morter and support) or multiple players. Tne concept is a deep Advance to contact, clean up and finally seize the objective in a industry part of city. Eny is a single forwarded force with heavy artillery support. Enemy is randomized and very responsive action to yours. I tried to make him proactive and tricky. Just to make it fun to replay. Further instructions in the briefing in the scenario. If maps are needed download Kingston maps. The Maps are build together with LEO MACDONNALD from CAN 1 armd div in the SB community. IF I GET 3 COMMENTS, PLEASE ADD YOUR IDEAS FOR A SCENARIO, I WILL MAKE A NEW SCENARIO. Pls issue any comment and enjoy the simulation. Be aware the mission is very difficult and very hard to achieve success in. The scenario has no politically or realistic intention or setup. a mix of old, new equipment, new zeeland APV, german tanks old and new russian and a bit of UK.

  7. Turret Mantlets

    After the Leclerc mantlet 'debacle' I have grown somewhat suspicious of the mantlets of the tanks such as the Leopard 2A4, Challenger 2 and Abrams series of tanks. This thread is there to discuss the situation with the mantlets , their dimensions ,geometry, thickness and potential protection that they offer.
