K2 Black Panther (Hangul: K2 '흑표', hanja: K2 '黒豹') is a Republic of Korea main battle tank that will replace most of the various models of M48 Patton tanks and complement the K1 series of main battle tanks currently fielded by the Republic of Korea. Full-scale mass-production is currently on hold due to concerns regarding its transmission and main engine.
The K2 Black Panther features state-of-the-art technology and is the second most expensive tank in the world behind only the AMX-56 in price cost. A single K2 unit costs over US$8.5 million per unit.
