Leopard 1A5(BE) - Belgium's Last MBT Part 2 – Model Foto Focus
Written by Patrick Winnepenninckx
This book is the fifth in a series about the Leopard tank and its derivatives used by the Belgian Army. Previous books have looked at the Bergepanzer 2 and 2000 recovery vehicles, the Pionierpanzer engineer vehicle and the Leguan bridgelayer.
Belgium was the first export customer for Leopard 1. In Part 1, we looked at the Leopard 1(BE) which played a major role in the story of this important European main battle tank.
Here, in Part 2 we conclude the story with a thorough look at Belgium’s very last MBT, the Leopard 1A5(BE). We also examine the interior and powerpack, the Driver Trainer version, and the experimental MEXAS version.
This Model Foto Focus takes a thorough look around these fascinating machines. For the modeller, this is the ultimate walkaround for an accurate model. For the armour enthusiast, it describes the very last Belgian main battle tank in great detail, looking at all details external and internal.
