Hello,

this is the German main battle tank Leopard 2, which is the successor to the Leopard 1.
It is equipped with a fully stabilized 120 mm smoothbore cannon, able to fire 42 rounds, and one or two top-mounted machine guns.
The 62 ton tank is propelled by a V12 multi-fuel engine.

Enjoy!

I completely overhauled this design because I felt like the first one was too colorful and too messy and didn't really look like a Leopard 2. I tried to keep this new design simple yet recognizable.

I changed the barrel and turret's front to match the real tank more.
I shortened the turret and changed the antennas.
I removed a lot of unnecessary detail.
I rearranged the entry hatches and other things on top of the turret to make it more realistic (angles in photos sometimes make it hard to determine where something exactly sits).
The back now features the exhaust pipes.
I am a lot more happy with this design than with the prior one.

The dark prismarine makes it heavy duty

Ha xD That's a superflat tank ^^ Yeah, I can make it! But it may take a while. I'm doing something different at the moment.

do you scale your builds? 1.3:1 ? or maybe 1.5:1 ?

Usually not. I start with somethng, in this case it were the tracks I began with, and then build everything else in nearly the correct proportion to what is already there. So, proportionwise my builds should be fairly accurate. What scale it exactly is, you would have to calculate afterwards:
Wikipedia says a Leopard 2A5 is approximately 10m long, 3.70m wide and 3m tall.
Mine is 13m long, 5m wide and 4.5 m tall (with PERI).
That gives the following scales for
length: 13/10=1.3 -> 1.3:1
width: 5/3.7≈1.35 -> 1.35:1
height: 4.5/3=1.5 -> 1.5:1

So, as you can see, the scales for length and width are pretty close, the one for height is a little bit greater. Ideally, all three scales should be exactly the same. Then the proportions are perfect, meaning every part of the tank has the correct size when compared to another part of the tank. I couldn't make my tank smaller, though, because if I had made it half a block smaller, I would not have been able to place the PERI (the wither skeleton skull) on top of it.
By the way, if it was half a block smaller, the scale for the height would be 4/3≈1.33 -> 1.33:1 which is pretty close to the other two scales.
So, to get the proportions nearly perfect, I would have had to make the tank 4 blocks tall (with PERI).

height on vehicles never plays a role in MC but knowing if its 1.3:1 or higher (in width/lenght) does play a role if you are making a city or some base wich is why i asked... thanks for clarification :)

Captain_JEK strikes again! By now you're probably the best vehicle builder on Planet Minecraft!
