The M5A3G Leopard is a gauss powered main battle tank manufactured and shipped by Evans Military Tank and Vehicles Inc. USA division, it is used by the Company of Liberty as a tank utilised for the faction's tank columns when used in combat. Leopards are tanks with 10% additional armour which will allow the tank to survive in the field a bit more longer than an average Crusader Tank, the Leopard Tank comes with a special gauss cannon which was Mass Produced in America.

They are capable of firing a powered gauss shot; this was known to instantly destroy a light armoured target, can weaken down a heavily armoured threats or large tanks on the battlefield while they are against it, this allowed other tanks to finish it off.

Development

Before the First Eurasian Conflict, the United States Army made a request to develop new MBT, which can effectively fight off any tank fielded at that time. Two entries to replace the Grizzly Tank were the M6 Maverick and the M5 Leopard, both developed by Evans Military Tank and Vehicle Inc. whilst the M5A1 Leopard was mostly called the "Crusader Tank".

The tank was fast, easy to build and sported a 125mm smoothbore gun, the choice showed brilliant as the Leopard was able to easily fight off Global Liberation Army's Scorpion Tanks even when fighting one or two of them at the same time, during the time there appeared another version, M5A2, which even more increased its battle effectiveness.

Before its retirement from the United States Army, Evans Inc. created another type of the Leopard, which is currently used by Company of Liberty, several major differences between the USA's version is that the tank used by the Allied Nations has a mounted gauss cannon, which can destroy most armour with three or four shots.

Evans Military Tank & Vehicle Inc. also had reports that the Company requested a tri-barreled prototype, it is a variant of the M5A3G Leopard, Company Leaders authorised the use of the M5A3G3 Prototype to high ranking commanders.

These types of versions of the Leopard Tank were a rare type of tank in existence, All-thou it was known to be a constant pain to enemy forces in the past.

Whilst in active service within the peacekeeper factions along with several numbers by OAT Protected Nations, the United States also utilize some tri-barreled versions of the Leopard but under the callsign known as the Proto-Crusader.

"How do I operate this thing?"
- Confused GLRF Tank Operator -

There have been sightings of GLRF coloured versions of the older versions of 1st generation Leopard Tanks, known as the M5A2 versions, being utilized by the terrorist forces, but lacking several features such as a Gauss Cannon or Search Light on the Company's M5A3G model.

These versions were often using Bolt-On Rockets, similar ones used on D-34MT Scorpion Tanks. The 105mm Cannon was restored, Rifled not Smoothbore, but most of them don't have Search Lights unlike the newer variants of the Leopard used by the Company of Liberty and US-Task Forces' Crusader Tanks.
