Leopard 2 replace the early leopard (leopard 1) as the main battle tank of German Army since 1979. More than 3000 leopard 2s (in all version) have been manufactured by Krauss-Maffei, and its have served German Army and other countries untill present. There are various versions of Leopard 2 MBT such as Leopard 2A4, A5, A6, A6E, etc. Leopard 2A6 Military papercraft is based on Leopard 2A6's line drawings, photos, and specifications. It is on 1:50 scale and some detail parts are not made. Leopard 2A6 is further improved version of the leopard 2 main battle tank (MBT) include addition of the Rheinmetall 120 mm L55 smoothbore gun, increasing reliability and crew safety, improved protection against mines and some other changes. There are two main types of ammunition, carried by leopard 2A6, they are : the APFSDS-T anti-tank rounds and HEAT-MP-T multi-purpose rounds.This MBT is the one of the best tank in the world at present day.

Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is my first full camouflaged model. I choose 3 color camo pattern (green, black, and brown). This is preety difficult and need so many photos as references because I want to make it just like the real camo pattern. 3 months for texturing this model, it might be faster if i'm a realy "free" man and focusing my time to do texturing. It had took so long because i have to manage my time during my study, project, familly and other hobbies :D, but i really enjoy it. In the last 2 weeks i have tested this model and make sure that this Leopard 2A6 Military Papercraft is possible to build. After couple of months, this model is ready to download freely, please enjoy and happy building!!
