This Leopard AS1 guards the approaches to the Moama RSL in southern NSW. Many display Leos have ex-Canadian Leo turrets but this appears to be an original AS1 turret.

The Leo is next to a Centurion Mk 5 and provides a good comparison of Australia's MBTs of the 1950s through to the 2000s.

Nice. It's always good to have a good reference.

Leo AS1 under canvas at the Australian Army Tank Museum, Puckapunyal. This Leo is a runner and is protected from the elements. A Leo bridgelayer bridge is just visible to the left of the MBT.

A close up of the running gear. Note that the painter hasn't bothered to mask the tyres :wink:
