The collection at the Tank Museum contains the tanks who has served in the Danish army since 1945. The only exception is tank Leopard 2A5/2A7, which is the army’s active tank, however, we have a Leopard 2A4 at the museum.

The collection shows the development of the Danish armour from the first American Sherman M4A3, which was received in the early 50s, over the first modern tank the English Centurion, which formed the backbone of the Danish armour from 1953 to the mid 80s.

In the mid-70s, the Centurion tanks were supplemented with 120 German Leopard 1A3 tanks. Both types were continuously product developed and extended. This development took place in close collaboration with companies in the Danish Defense Industry.

At the same time as Denmark got battle tanks, the Centurion, light reconnaissance tanks of the types M24 Chaffee, M41 Walker Bulldog and the tank destroyer M10 Achilles were also implemented into the armed forces.
