The Leopard 1 A3/A4 MBT had a crew of four. It was equipped with a L7A3 105mm rifled gun. Length - 9.54 m (gun forward); width - 3.37 m; combat weight - 42.4 tonnes; maxi. road speed - 65 km/h. It was fitted with a MB 838 CaM 500 water-cooled multi-fuel engine. The Leopard 1 A3 incorporated all the improvements of the Leopard 1 A2 but with a new welded turret of spaced armor with a wedge-shaped gun mantlet; the turret rear stowage bin was incorporated into the contour of the turret; the loader's periscope was movable in both elevation and azimuth. Leopard 1 A4 was fitted with the same turret as Leopard 1 A3, but had an integrated fire-control system, which improved the tank's combat effectiveness and also provided a far higher hit probability. The Leopard 1 MBT became a standard equipment of European forces for its extraordinary reliability and outstanding tactical mobility, and served in over a dozen countries worldwide.
