The Greek Army has just received the last of 650 Leonidas full-tracked armored personnel carriers. The last 57 had a new automatic transmission in place of the earlier manual version, and Elbo hopes to convince the Greek Army to replace the older transmissions with the automatic version as the vehicles are sent in for maintenance.
