Leopard 2 Tank Brake Test


There was a time and age when brake tests were performed with striped orange cones. Today, those cones have become pretty expensive in the Netherlands, negating the necessity to begin using live cones in MIB suits.

This is the brake test of a Leopard 2 Tank, which began production back in 1979. Since then, these tanks have undergone some improvements, which you are about to see in this video.

These tanks found motivation through the will of its massive 47.6-liter turbocharged 12-cylinder engine, which is just as heavy as it sounds. They had a top speed of 42 mph, and your about to see how quickly that can be transformed to 0 mph.
