Ammo reloading is screwed-up in Leo-2 AI tanks. I observed one Leo-2 AI tank reloading ammo while being immobilized and under enemy fire. Very quickly it was hit in turret's rear and destroyed immediately.
However I like very much...Leo-1A5 tank! Its 3D interiors look great and FCS is more advanced than this one found in Leo-2A4. Especially commander's targeting devices are very advanced - he can fire on the move inducing lead what Leo-2 commander cannot do. Fighting Soviet tanks in it is challenging because you have FCS advantage but one enemy hit and goodbye.
But I have questions about Leo-1A5 ammo loadout. This tank was introduced in 1987 but it is in service even now in several countries. So what was its default ammo loadout:
- just after introduction into German service
- today in Greece and Turkey
I am especially curious about HESH versus HEAT rounds. What type of those two was/is preferred in Leo-1A5? Maybe now HE rounds are also used quite often? Also canister rounds were developed recently. So please tell be a bit about all this because I want to make historical and realistic scenarios.
