Germany to upgrade 100 Leopard 2A6 to A7 standard by 2026...

via Shepard Media.
Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) has received a contract to modernise 101 German Leopard 2 A6 main battle tanks, the company announced on 5 April.

The contract, awarded by the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, is worth more than €300 million.

Under the contract, KMW will upgrade the vehicle’s operating concept, targeting system and fire control computer as well as the chassis to the Leopard 2 A7V configuration.

All vehicles will be re-delivered by 2026.
That's an awful long time to deliver a relatively small number of vehicles...
