I was able to find the following information for the total weight of the vehicles in metric tons:

Arjun mk1 .................58,5 t
Arjun mk2 ..................67 t (+9 tons to the original Arjun mk1 . I am not sure if these are metric units. Seems to quite a large addition)

Challenger 1........................... 62 t
Challenger 1 mk3 .................. 62 t + kit weight (at least 5t)
Challenger 2 ......................... 62,5 t
Challenger 2 uparmored ....... 62,5 t +kit weight (at least 5t)

K1..................... 51,1 t
K1A1................. 53,1 - 54,5 t
K2..................... 55,0 t

Leopard 2A7+.......... 67,5 t

Merkava Mk 1......... 61-63 t
Merkava Mk 2......... 63 t
Merkava Mk 2D...... 63+ t
Merkava Mk 3........ 63,5 t
Merkava Mk 3D..... 65 t
Merkava 4............. 65 t (seems to a bit off. It is more likely to be around 70 t)
Merkava 4M.......... 65+ t

M1A2 SEP v2 with Tusk 1 and 2 the M1A2 SEP (v1 or v2) weighs 63,1 metric tons total. , 24,4 tons for the turret and 38,7 tons for the hull. This weight does not include TUSK. The kit most likely will weigh in excess of 4 metric tons

Type 90................ 50 t
Type 10............... 48 t (in most upgraded state)

T-80U.................. 46,0 t
T-90S.................. 46,5 t
t-90 MS ............... 48 t
BM Oplot ............. 51 t

ZTZ 98................... 51,8 t
ZTZ 99A1.............. 57 t (seems rather heavy for relatively a small turreted vehicle)
ZTZ 99A2 ................ 58 t (seems rather heavy for a relatively small turreted
vehicle)

Leclerc S1......... 54,5 t......... turret weight 18,5 t .......hull weight 36 t
Leclerc S2......... 56 t........... turret weight 18,5 t .....hull weight 37,5 t
Leclerc XXI ........ 58 t........... turret weight 20,5 t.... hull weight 37, 5 t

Sure about the mass of the M1A2? Everything i've heard has it coming in at over 72 tons full loaded.

I am absolutely certain about the weight of the M1A2. A lot of times people forget to convert the US customary units to metric units.

Here is some more from the Abrams Hunnicutt book:

XM1 (GM)....................53,2 tons
XM1(Chrysler).............52,7 tons
M1 ..............................54,5
M1E1.......................... 57,3 tons
M1A1..........................59,1 tons

from the US army site

M1A1............... 61,3 tons (most likely a HA variant)
M1A2 .............. 62 tons
M1A2 SEP.........63 tons

I dont know the weight of the TUSK kits , these might actually increase the weight of the vehicle to about 70+ metric tons.

Leopard 2A6....... 60,1 tons...... turret ~21 tons.... hull....39 tons
Leopard 2A5....... 59,7 tons...... turret ~20,7 tons... hull:... 39 tons
Leopard 2A4...... 55,15 tons.... turret :16 tons ...hull:.... 39 tons
