The Leopard 2 NL differs from its German counterpart in having a Dutch-designed smokes mortar system with six barrels on each side, a Dutch-built passive night periscope for the driver, a 762 mm FN MAG machine gun installed co-axially to the main gun and one further MAG for air defense, and Phillips radios with US-style antenna bases. In January 1993, the Royal Netherlands Army announced plans to phase out 115 of its 445 Leopard 2 NL which were sold to Austria, and to upgrade the remaining 330 vehicles to the standard of the German Leopard 2 AS, The first improved Leopard 2 NL were delivered to the Royal Netherlands Army in May 1997, These vehicles use the same German camouflage scheme,but remain the Dutch radios, antenna bases, FN MAG machine guns and smoke mortars The Royal Netherlands Army has ordered the upgrade of 180 of its Leopard 2A5 tanks to A6 configuration, the first of which entered service in February 2003
