Footage of the battle and the first defeat of the Ukrainian Leopard 1A5 tank made in Germany have been published. The battle episode was filmed in the Kupyansk area; the tank was in service with the 44th mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Army. The tank was not directly hit; the tank was probably damaged by a nearby artillery shell explosion, after which the crew abandoned it. The German Leopard 1A5 tank is a modernization of the first Leopard-1 tank, created in 1987. The tank is very vulnerable as it has thin armor. The thickness of the frontal armor of the tank is up to 70 mm, the turret armor is up to 65 mm, the sides of the tank have armor 35-45 mm thick. Data on the first versions of Leopard 1 tanks.

No damage visible. Leo truck was torn off by an anti-tank mine. Another question: why did they end up on the front line at all? Their function is to fire support infantry from a distance of 4-5 km.

The point is moot. 100 Leopard 1 is no match for 1 million Termite anti tank helicopters. This is the drone age. Drones are built in massive numbers. Drone pilots are quick and easy to train. If it wasn't for the drone age, Ukraine would have conquered Moscow by now.

Leopard 1 has smoothmore gun. Rifled gun can be accurate up to some 10 km. Smoothbore is only accurate up to 2 or 3 km. Think about it. Football players throw the ball with a spin. Spinning object is more accurate than non spinning object.
