Leopard 1 Main Battle Tank
Price Per Unit-$1.5 million
The Leopard 1 was on the front line in West Germany in the Cold War, and now it can be on the front line of your next armored spearhead. First produced in 1963, the Leopard has been an essential part of NATO ever since it's conception. The Leopard is called the "economy tank", and she earns the name well. She is cheaply priced for even the smallest nation's budget, yet has the stopping power needed to hold it's own. Armed with a 105mm gun, the Leopard can engage in combat effectively at approximately 2,500 meters from it's target. Also, thanks to device called an electronic hydraulic gyroscopic gun stabilizer, the Leopard can fire while on the move, so you won't have to stop in the middle of a charge to defeat your is also equipped with two 7.62 machineguns and two tank-mounted smoke grenade discharges, allowing you to move in secrecy. One of the Leopard's more innovative features is that she can be "sealed-off" from nuclear contamination. If you ever find yourself in the middle of a nuclear hotspot, the Leopard will allow you to perform limited combat operations in the field where any other army would have been stopped in it's tracks.

Panzerhaubitze 2000
Unit Price-$3 million
The PzH2000 marks the latest induction in German armored warfare. The '2000 is a self-propelled howitzer artillery piece that far surpasses it's American Paladin counterpart. She is equipped with a 155mm gun and is argued to be the most capable howitzer in the world by many. The howitzer's self-loading system removes the neccessity to have a loader onboard to keep the gun stocked with shells. Also onboard is a Global Positioning Sattelite system which determines the howitzer's position on the planet as well as works with the ballistic computer system to aid in taking aim on would-be targets. The crew is placed in the weapons compartment, which allows for a heavier set of armor around the chassis. While a minimum of three men are required to run the howitzer, the chassis may be modified so that it may only require a crew of three. The gun has an operational range of just under 42 kilometers at most.

Heckler&Koch G36 Assault Rifle
Carbine version with dual sight
C36C Commando Version

Unit Price-$700
When the time came to replace the G3 and AK74 after the unification of East and West Germany, Heckler&Koch was charged to produce the small arms weapon that would guide a new, united Germany into the 21st century. The answer was the G36. The H&K G36 is one of the most diverse small arms weapons systems in the world. The barrel on the rifle can be removed and changed with shorter barrel to create a carbine weapon, a heavier barrel to create a small fire support weapon, or a standard barrel for an all around powerful rifle. The stock can be folded to the right to shorten the weapon, and above the rifle is a carrying holder. Inside the holder is a 3.5x optical sight, one of the rifle's more convenient features to improve accuracy. Also, an infrared sight can be placed to the handle to make the G36 pin-point accurate even at night. Attached to the rifle are several connection points, which allow for flashlights, grenade launchers, lasers, or a folding bipod.

I am very interested in your items for sale, but I have a few questions.
1. The Leopard 1A4 has been replaced by the Leopard II in some countries. With improvements such as gas turbine engines, better gun systems and so on, why should I purchase such a tank on my nation's behalf? Will you be making Leopard II's available?
2. Will you charge lower amounts to countries buying a lot of weaponry?

Having said that, we are interested in a demonstration of the firearms, and would like to send a delegation to try them out.
