The Leopard 2 Tank Thread [Updated 2017/03/21]

Built to the Canadia Star Legion's specifications, the Leopard 2A6M CAN+ is the most advanced Main Battle Tank in the known galaxy. Designed and built by ABS Defence Systems, the Leo. 2 series is rapidly outselling units of the Jackson series. With a top speed of 14" and wielding a 6" cannon, the Leopard 2 is a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield.
The first deliveries of the Leopard 2A6M CAN+ are expected to arrive early BR 2,016. In the meantime, she'll undergo sub-zero trials and receive an appropriate camouflage scheme.

What a beaut! What's the umbrella thing?

I see that this is a siege tank because you added ladders to the tank so that your forces can scale walls.  Nice touch.

I didn't even notice that! The ladder's primary role is actually to act as cage armour, detonating missiles and HEAT rounds prematurely before they hit the tank.

What about the umbrella? Protect the inside tech from rain?

(Reality check) The umbrella was placed there to protect the commander and loader from the Afghanistan sun when they were out of the turret.
In Brikwars, it's almost exclusively there for decoration.

They're from the Lego Rebel Hoth battlepack released a few years ago.

9". The final version will have a lot more features than seen here. I'll be making and posting a statcard in the coming days.

Here's the current statcard  :D .
Quite an expensive piece of hardware, but totally worth it.

Nice tank, I see the diplomat needs to catch up in terms of umbrella technology.

Also man is that expensive.

Man, 214 CP does seem expensive. Let's do the math!

    Chassis:

    Base Cost: Size: 9" x Armor 4d10 = 36 CP
    Move: 14" x 2 (Plate Armor) = 14 CP

      Total: 50 CP

(14" is pretty fast. In standard BrikWars terms, that's faster than most combat planes. In your own battles this means you'll have to scale ranges accordingly; if you use it in other people's battles, I'd tone it down to 10" in order to keep consistency.)

    Weapons:

    Smoothbore Gun: Size 6" Launcher = 18 CP
    Remote Weapons Station: Size 3" Gun = 9 CP (correct Range to 14")
    30 cal Coaxial: Size 2" Gun = 6 CP (correct Range to 10")

      Total: 33 CP

    Equipment loadout:
    All equipment items must be represented by specific physical bricks.

    TROPHY + Cage Armor + ERA: 3d10 Energy Shield, Size 9" = 27 CP
    TOG Sight + Gunner's Sight: Gunnery Specialty x 2 = 2 CP
    AC Unit: Leadership Specialty = 2 CP
    Composite Armor: 4" Armor Plating = 5 CP

      Total: 36 CP

By my best estimate, this tank costs 50 + 33 + 36 = 119 CP, roughly equivalent to 12 armed men. It'll be a couple more points if there are multiples of any of those weapons, and cost of ammunition and crew aren't factored in yet.
