    It would allow them to split development costs.

    Are you talking about MBT70? That occurred after the French/German/Italian project that produced Leopard 1 and AMX-30 had broken up...

    Why would the Germans want to try to develop a tank jointly with the French when they just came out of a failed effort with the U.S. ?

    Voted for French AMX-30/40.

    versatile Tank seen action in Desert , An ack ack gun 20 mm gun that is independent of main armament,

    Saudi and Qatari versions are modified to suit their requirement.

    some were used as launcher for Pluton tactical nuclear missile system.

    good use by French.

    Danish Leopard 1A5-DKs saw combat in Bosnia, Canadian Leopard C2s in Afghanistan.

    They are separated by more than 20 years as designs. Leopard 2 was designed from improved Leopard 1, plus some components like the engine which come from aborted MBT-70.
    Thanks.

    Going back through Leopard 2 prototypes line you will notice their similarity with Leopard 1.

    French AFV designs have never had much, if any, impact outside of France after the FT 17.
    They were widely exported however.

    Tank for tank, effectively very similar but ...

    Leopard 1 seems to have been rather more widely employed.

    Close, though.
