Leopard 1(BE) - Belgium's Last MBT Part 1
Written by Patrick Winnepenninckx
This book is the fourth 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. The Leopard 1(BE) therefore plays a major role in the story of this important European main battle tank. This is Part 1 of a study that concludes in a second volume looking at Belgium’s very last MBT, the Leopard 1A5(BE).
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 tank in great detail, looking at all details external and internal, with more to come in Part 2.
