The German military will begin 2019 by accepting the first two upgraded Leopard 2 A7V MBTs to undergo an integration verification procedure before fielding.

The two vehicles will be delivered to the Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw) in Q1 2019 with the first Leopard 2 A7Vs on schedule to be fielded in 2020.

A German MoD spokesperson told Shephard that by the end of 2020 a total of five upgraded Leopard 2 MBTs will be fielded.

In the next stage 100 Leopard 2 type A6/A6M will undergo a weapon system improvement programme.
