Leopard 1 Tank is the first German tank produced after World War Two. It is a modern design with all the latest technical developments of the late 1950s’ It employed the British designed 105mm tank gun that was the NATO standard for many years. This tank was the first in a long line of Leopard tanks. Had the Red Army come west in the 1960’s they would have faced a few thousand of these tanks both in German service but other NATO allies too.
