Rheinmetall's MBT Technologieträger

The MBT Technologieträger is a testbed from Rheinmetall. It is based on the Leopard 2 Revolution with a few more components being tested. According to Autobild.de this upgrade might be ordered by the German army in the near future, as there are 113 Leopard 2A4 tanks that need to be upgraded.

The vehicle is fitted with a long barreled L55 tank gun
The rear of the vheicle is protected by slat armor. Also note the surveillance system.
The vehicle is fitted with an ADS version capable of intercepting APFSDS.
