You can't not love this tank. While this tank isn't exactly beginner-friendly due to the lack of armor, it is still a dream to play. It has great viewrange, amazing speed/mobility and the most reliable gun of any tank.
very close to being my favourite tier 10 med. It's easily one of the best snipers in the game, the gun is a pleasure with its dpm, gun handling and laser pointer accuracy. You have almost light tank level mobility (basically like the tvp if you played it) which allows you to relocate from one flank to another in seconds.
With that said the lack of armour will make it hard to play for beginners who will also have a hard time using its full mobility potential.
The leopard 1 is a dream to play due to the combination of very good mobility and an incredible gun. The armour is poor, making this tank a challenge for newer players although it pulls off miracle bounces more than you would think. If you are relatively experienced this is one of the most enjoyable tanks to play in the game.
