Canadian Tanks in Action in Afghanistan

Canadian Army Leopard 2A6M main battle tanks during military operations in Afghanistan. The Leopard 2A6 is an advanced German tank. In 2007, Canada bought 20 of them from Dutch Army and borrowed another 20 2A6M. This model, which was deployed in Afghanistan, has additional armour that reinforces the chassis under the tank, protecting the crew members against mines. These German-made main battle tanks are armed with one 120mm, smooth bore, L55 gun.
