Belgian Gepard - Anti-Aircraft Leopard
Written by Patrick Winnepenninckx
This book is the final part 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, the Leguan bridgelayer and the two variants of the Leopard 1 main battle tank, not forgetting the Driver Trainer.
Belgium was the first export customer for Leopard 1 and also the anti-aircraft version of the family, the Gepard.
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 Belgian version of this interesting anti-aircraft vehicle in great detail, looking at all details external and internal. It also tells of the fate of some of the vehicles.
It will also be of interest to German Gepard enthusiasts as the two vehicles were 99 per cent identical.
