Leopon Team (レオポンさんチーム, Reopon-san Chīmu) is one of the teams involved in Girls und Panzer.
Leopon Team consists of members of the automotive club from Ooarai Girls High School, which up to that point had meticolously done the restoration and the maintenance of the school's tanks. The team operates a German Tiger (P), which was accidentally found by Miho while searching for Saori and the rest of the Rabbit Team who had lost their way inside their ship city; after lenghty repairs, it was fixed and painted it with an image of a lion; Miho herself suggested to them that they could become the Tiger (P)'s crew. Together with Anteater Team, they became the last minute addition to Ooarai's lineup prior to the final round of the Sensha-dou tournament.
About Tiger (P)Edit
The Tiger (P) is a German prototype heavy tank with a formidable 8.8cm KwK 36 L/56 gun; it has excellent firepower and armor protection, but it's very unreliable, often suffering from engine breakdowns.
During the final match against Kuromorimine Girls High School, Ooarai's tanks managed to survive the initial attack by Kuromorimine's panzers and they gathered on the top of a hill, later successfully executing a breakthrough. During the subsequent chase, while crossing a bridge, Leopon Team deliberately demolished it, forcing the opponent to take a different route and gaining critical time for Ooarai; after that, they were lured by a lone Panzer III Ausf.J of Kuromorimine into a trap set by a super heavy Maus tank into the city. After it was defeated, the rest of Kuromorimine's tanks arrived; the Leopon Team acted as a rear guard for the Anglerfish Team, managing to successfully lure Kuromorimine's flag tank commanded by Maho Nishizumi into a closed building complex for a one-on-one match. Leopon Team used its tank's huge size to block the only entrance, preventing the rest of Kuromorimine's tanks to provide help for their commander, even after it was taken out after a lenghty battle; thus, it was critical for Ooarai's narrow victory in the match.
Leopon Team consists of four members of the automotive club from Ooarai Girls High School, which also provide maintenance for all of Ooarai's tanks.
