According to the rumors, the Canadian Army will have some hulky new toys before the summer. The new toys, not clearly reported though, are a bunch of Leopard 2A6M. (Cannot be Leopard 1A6 because it is no longer in production.) The problem with the existing Canadian tanks is not their old age, it's the lack of air conditioning. Being a Canadian, I absolutely understand why the Forces never think AC is necessary. Well I guess this is an interesting lesson learned in Afghanistan! Anyway, I think it is about time for me to find some Leopard 2 models. I haven't built a 1:35 tank for almost ten years!
