Part 1 - Development and Active Service
The Leopard 2 main battle tank can easily be regarded as a child of the depths of the Cold War. When the Leopard 2 was first fielded in 1979, it already was by far the best MBT in the world as it not only stood out from other tanks in all important parameters such as protection, mobility and armament, but also in secondary aspects like ergonomics, maintenance friendliness and reliability. Besides its high performance, its growth potential, adaptability and durability are the main characteristics of the design.
Based on current plans, the Leopard 2 will be used by the Bundeswehr till at least 2040, which means a usage period of 60 years.
With a total of 136 pages, 290 colour photos, 18 graphics and two 1/35 scale drawings this two-part publication grants an in-depth look at the Leopard 2A4 on exercise and shows the tank's technology in great detail. An additional chapter takes a closer look at the Fahrschulpanzer Leopard 2 driver training vehicle.
