Saudi Arabia could purchase 200 Leopard 2A7+ main batle tanks from Germany.
 
According to German weekly Der Spiegel, Germany has allowed the sale of 200 Leopard 2A7+ tanks to Saudi Arabia after decades of blocking heavy weapons sales to the kingdom.
     
     
The federal security council approved the sale last week, the weekly news magazine said without citing sources.

The Saudis want to buy 200 Leopard 2A7+ tanks in an order potentially worth billions of euros to companies Kraus-Maffei and Rheinmetall, Der Spiegel said.

The kingdom was in talks with the Spanish subsidiary of General Dynamics about buying their version of the Leopard tank, but the major portion of the order will land with the Germans, the magazine said.

Saudi Arabia already operates M1A2 Abrams, AMX-30 and M60A3 main battle tanks and are also in talks for T-90 from Russia.
