In case anybody is wondering, the Leo 1 is not great at fighting modern tanks because it is obsolete, thinly armored, and has only a 105mm gun. But it doesn't have to fight tanks. That what the ATGM's and MBT's are for. This will likely be used like a light tank to exploit breakthroughs and scout, and for protected direct fire support in support of infantry and other armored vehicles.

Also there's no way Russia has any modern tanks left.

Maybe a couple hundred T-80s and T-90s combined; both of which are just T-72s with mods.

T-80 is a different family of tank. They are the same family as the Ukrainian T-64.
