Leopard Workshop Leopard 2A6M CAN conversion

This represents the latest version of 2A6M CAN - Canada's front-line tank alongside the 2A4M CAN (which gets all the publicity). Having gone through a thorough rebuild programme following their return from Afghanistan to Canada, modifications include mine protection belly armour (hence the 'M' designation), reinforcement strakes under the engine compartment, glacis armour plate, a crew cooling unit in the right rear hull, the option of ECM boxes mounted on the rear turret roof, 'T' antenna mounts, and mounting points for the addition of slat armour and engineering attachments at the front.

The modifications in this set are the latest upgrades to these vehicles at the time of this set's release. There is a final configuration of 2A6M CAN - the real vehicles look different from tank to tank as most are currently at different stages of modification. It will take some time to bring them all to the same final standard.

The set includes nearly 40 resin parts, three photo-etch sheets for engine deck grilles, optional ECM boxes and turret basket etch, amongst other things. Also included are LW014B turned brass antennae set and LW027B 6+2 smoke launchers.
