Dinky Toys 696, Leopard Anti-Aircraft Tank.

This is a Dinky Toys No 696, German Army Leopard Anti-Aircraft Tank, one of a range of current day armoured vehicles produced by Dinky in the seventies. This model utilised the chassis of the regular Leopard Tank with a more complex, twin barrel Anti-Aircraft turret. The turret could swivel and both barrels could elevate as one, and fired small plastic shells individually via spring release buttons at the rear. There was also a fold down ratcheted radar at the rear of the turret which could be lifted up, and a smaller free spinning radar the front between the two barrels.
This model was produced between 1975 and 1980.
