Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 MBTs are of course completely different vehicles in concept- and they come from different stages of the Bundeswehr’s Cold War armaments program. They nonetheless have a number of similarities and are together the most commercially successful and widely sold European tank designs from the 1960s to the present day.

This is a brief discussion of the iconic Leopard 1 and Leopard 2 tank families, touching on some of its best-known members.

"With the service and development background, added to two fine model builds, there is plenty here to help anyone wishing to model the Leopard, a fine addition to the range of books from Kagero"

- Military Model Scene

"[A] useful reference source for AFV modellers"


"This is a nice offering from Kagero due to a nice mix of the factual offering and the two very nice builds. The aspects that grabbed my attention most was the painting and weathering of the models that I found the most interesting to me visually"
