Hi I recently got the LeKpz M41 and it certainly seems real but I can’t find any pictures of the real tank or other info on it from other than the wargaming page... Apparently West Germany only had 50 M41s so it’s understandable why there’s so little info, but if anyone knows more about this tank, can you tell me? Thanks in advance.

I think you might find your answer from here

Although I myself am not an enthusiastic in this regards, I was curious and just looked up on the internet for few mins. Although this only tell half of the story as I was not able to find a link between this alternate gun and M41 usage in west Germany. It is also possible that there was a M41 captured by German during WW|| and modified it, I've no clue about that.

But please do share if you find any details. 

 

P.S. The WG wiki only says "Major changes were introduced to the 76 mm gun M32, which was reamed out to 90 mm and shortened by 425 mm."
