Leopard I Tank Miniature
On Sunday, December 3, 2006, near the village of Panjwaii, Afghanistan, Taliban forces fired two rockets at a Canadian squadron of Leopard tanks. When the tanks returned fire with their 105-millimetre guns, it was the first time since the Korean War that Canadian tanks were involved in combat.
With the sound of those big guns echoing through the surrounding mountains — an area regarded as the spiritual home of the Taliban — Canada became the first NATO country to send tanks into combat in Afghanistan.
