Wear and tear on a real Leopard II A6

December 2014, the National Military Museum opened in Soesterberg. This museum houses the collections several other museums under one roof. Of special interest is the Leopard II A6 in the museum, it is the only A6 version on permanent display for as far as I am aware. The machine looks like as if it is driven straight from the battlefield in to the museum giving a real life example of the wear and tear on a real modern tank. It is driving on the tank range outside the museum right now! (August 27 and 28 2016) On to the photo's!
Also in the museum is the first modern tank, the FT-17. Very nice to see the first and latest tank in one museum.
