Well i brought rulers.. piece of paper, pen and camera.. and start doing my job.
This is the Leopard in question.
What i did ?
What's being measured ?
Loader's sight turret armor
Commander and gunner part :
Oh and i'm also measure thickness of the gunsight/commander's sight cover
Turret side part :
Lower hull part :
And some other parts like side skirts, gun mantlet and rear of the turrets. The results was well... might be doubtful considering i measure using my old piece of ruler and take no account of angles (Which however can be easily found using 1/cos@*Physical thickness while @ is the angle in radians) But it give me at least some idea that "it's not as thick as what some internet guys claimed"
Another thing is that i measured parts that i could measure... can't do a thing for others like say.. roof and all of my figures are for physical thickness... can't say a thing about the cobham filler inside.. So my figures might be worthless.
Hmm result of my measurements as follows :
Turret front part (loader side) : 617 mm
Turret (Commander & Gunner side) Behind the sight :535 mm
Thickness of the sight's cover : 12 mm
Side of the Turret : 285 mm
Rear of the Turret : 25 mm
Gun Mantlet : 500 mm
Roof of the gun mantlet : 70 mm
Side skirt add on armor : 110mm
Lower frontal hull :40 mm
Hmm that's all.. What's left now is to repeat the measurement..which quite long from now since cavalry batalyon near my city has not received any leopard yet (That one i measured was the 1st batch.. 2 arrived.. 1 however is rumoured to be returned to Germany for some unknown reason)
