I am going to go against the politically correct crowd and say that the Leopard 2 will win in at least 99 out of 100 cases assuming the crews are at least similar in quality.
Because Russian equipment is pathetic and obsolete at least in terms of armour.
It has nothing to really to do with the tank itself and I am almost prepared to say that the Russians still make the best tank gun on the market but that means absolutely nothing when the L2 can pretty much detect and destroy you at twice the range the T-90 can.
It Russia could develop targeting and stablisation systems that were anywhere near the quality that the west produces then they will produce a good competitive tank.
