    Okay, found it.

    The first Leopard came into service in the mid-60s. It's max. armor was 70mm, speed 65kph and had a 105mm L7. Just about what I thought, but that armor looks like a step backwards.

    Could you really call it the Panther of the 1960s?

      Germany did build lesser AFVs -- assault guns and tank destroyers (e.g., the Hetzer). While the behemoths were unique, and thus make interesting press, they heavy tanks were never the staple of the German armored force.
