FIrst 200 produced didn't have it as standard.
It's not a prototype unit or something, I fail the see the relevance.
They were prepared to recieve thermals and did recieve them shortly after- as well as the following Leo 2 produced.
It was just a temporary, logistical issue.
The first batch were 380 tanks btw., they just couldn't produce as many thermal imaging systems that quickly.
But the Leopard 2 absolutely was designed and intended to come with thermal optics as a standard.
That temporary logistical issue should not influence the properties of the Leopard 2 in game.
I mean, that's just hair splitting now. Eugen just forgot about the basic Leopard 2 while doing those changes.
[Plus, even the T-72 A has medium optics - what really makes me wonder. Because according to wikipedia, the non-export T-72 A (introduced in 1979) had a laser rangefinder, but the non-export T-72s did not recieve thermal optics before the T-72 B2 (introduced in 2006!).
55 point T-72 A medium optics, 80 point Leopard 2 shit optics - no fucking way.]
