After the end of World War II, the German armaments industry was not permitted to resume tank development or production. Thus, the re-armament of the Federal Republic of Germany from the mid-1950’s and the associated creation of, and initial equipment for, the German Armed Forces proceeded with the aid of U.S. and British armoured vehicles. The German armaments industry also wouldn’t have been technically capable at that time of joining the advances in tank development since 1945. Thus only in 1959 did the development of a distinct, German standard tank begin again. After its completion, this was to gradually replace the American M-47 battle tanks. Production for the Leopard commenced in the autumn of 1965 and the first lot of 400 units was completed by June 1966. The Leopard was constantly being further developed to boost its combat effectiveness. The Leopard 1A1 model was manufactured between 1975 and 1977. Schuco is going to produce a miniature model of this Leopard 1A1 to a scale of 1:87. Military models come with a metal body and chassis. As is expected of Schuco models, a number of key features have been reproduced exactly with the greatest attention to detail.
