Top-of-the-line found not to be so top-of-the-line!!
From the War is Boring and the English Daily Mail tabloid some images with commentary, that Turkish military offensive in Syria the expected results [a quick victory] not even close to being achieved, deficiency [?] of the Leopard 2 main battle tank being made apparent?
1. "Germany’s Leopard 2 Tank Was Considered One of the Best — Until It Went to Syria"
"Cold War tanks encounter 21st century tactics"
"Germany’s Leopard 2 main battle tank has a reputation as one of the finest in the world, competing for that distinction with proven designs such as the American M-1 Abrams and the British Challenger 2. However, that reputation for nigh-invincibility has faced setbacks on Syrian battlefields, and placed Berlin in a uniquely awkward national-level dispute with Turkey, its fellow NATO member."
2. "The £4million German tank dubbed 'one of the best in the world' is shown up in Syria: Leopard 2 bought by Turkey to fight British-backed Kurds has numerous faults exposed in lethal fashion"
"A German-made tank, which Berlin once dubbed one of the best in the world, has had its shortcomings embarrassingly exposed on the battlefield in Syria."
