The Leopard 2A6, a further development of the 2A5, is an updated version of the Leopard 2 which replaced the former Leopard 1 as most important MBT used in the German Army. Supposedly the best MBT in the world, the Leopard 2A6 eclipses the other MBTs in firepower as well as protection and mobility systems. The Leopard 2A6 is shielded by composite armor of a new generation and features additional external modular armor. Since 1979, various versions of the Leopard 2 have been fielded to the German armed forces, plus those of about ten other European countries as well as those of several non-European countries. One unit of the Leopard 2A6 cost about US$5.74 million in 2007.
