Here are some prototypes and concepts for Leopard 1 medium tanks.

To start the Leopard 1A6 prototypes with 120mm Rheinmetall gun. The prototypes included the new gun, the EMES 18 fire control system (Leopard 1A5), appliqué turret front and side armour, appliqué turret roof armour, PERI commander’s sight and IR suppression for the exhaust system.

In „Typenkompass Artillerie-, Panzer- und Luftabwehrsysteme der Bundeswehr“, by K.Anweiler and
Manfred Pahlkötter, I found a photo of the Matador SPAAG. The turret front seems to have a different
shape compared to the drawing in GTX post.

It looks the same to me just a different photo angle. One big difference is the big circular hatch for the shell ejection/reload thingy is closed in this case when most of the time they are opened in the other photos.
