    Hee hee, this is not hearsay only, true one.

    I think the same old Singapore technique, buy something two versions ago, then add all kinds of super duper secret enhancement until they have to give it a new version code. probably the most solid Leopards around under the guise of a "older version".

    Leopard 1 is a mucher lighter tank than the earlier Centurion or its contemporary the Chieftian...

    looking at naming conventions past, it would prob be called the 2A4S

    Ok, u guys quit it.

    I am not allowed to say it, but those tanks are actually just training tools and toys. The real deals are actually bipedal mechas. Currently the largest one that we have is approximately 100m tall, armed with 50mm gattling cannon and a specially made 200mm main gun. Reactive armour on all sides and custom made shells for the 200mm gun from depleted uranium cores.

    One of the tests actually included the complete destruction of a AMX tank with just a step and survivng the explosion. But due to motor adjustment problems, the mecha has got a little stability problem to-date since the fragments from the metal shreds of the tank would damage the stepping foot. DSTA engineers are currently working hard to increase the armour rating on the foot.

    Subsequent versions shld come with a MRLS pack on the shoulder and missile jamming sensor arrays.

    if you are not allowed to say it, then why say?
    if this is classified information and you are spilling it all over the internet, isn't it a serious offence?

    Likely a joke...

    How can any of our bridges support that amount of weight?

    Singapore would definitely agree to build new causeway if we are really going to for such big armour monsters...
