This footage shows the two methods a 55-ton Leopard- 2 Tank can use to passing an anti-tank ditch 11,4 ft (3.5 meters) wide and 4,9 ft (1.5 meters) deep.


It can go very slow, sink in with the back of the tank and then use its immense engine power to push the far side of the ditch up and away. The alternative and you will not be surprised to learn that this is our favorite, is to go full speed and almost fly over it like it’s not even there. The Leopard 2 is propelled by the MTU MB 873 diesel engine, which provides 1,500 PS (1,103 kW) of engine output. The MTU MB 873 diesel engine is a four-stroke, 47.6 liter, 12-cylinder multi-fuel, exhaust turbo-charged, liquid-cooled engine, which has an estimated fuel consumption rate of around 300 liters per 100 km on roads and 500 liters per 100 km cross-country.The propulsion pack is capable of driving the tank to a top road speed of 68 km/h (limited to 50 km/h during peacetime by law), and top reverse is 31 km/h. The power pack can be changed in the field in 35 minutes.

The Leopard 2 can drive through water 13 ft deep using a snorkel or 3 ft 11 in without any preparation. It can climb vertical obstacles over 3 ft (one meter) high.

Impressive. Anti-tank ditches are one of the more ignominious adversaries of tanks. These holes seriously impeded advancing tanks in some wars. Things of the past now, due to advances in tank technology. I am lucky to find a site that helped me write an essay on the development of tanks.
