In 2007, the Danish Army took the Leopard 2A5 to war in Afghanistan. Like the Canadian Army before it, the Danish Army needed a heavy fire-support weapon in the War on Terror against the Taliban forces. The Leopard 2A5 is the right tool for the job. The Danish version of the Leopard 2A5 is a unique variant of the Leopard 2 family that has been the mainstay of NATO tank forces since 1980. This book details the development of the variant peculiar to the Danish Army with 343 colour pictures spread over 172 pages. The author has had access to official material from the Danish Army, including official photographs from Afghanistan. The development history of the vehicle is told, while all the details peculiar to the Danish variant are illustrated in great detail, including many photographs of the vehicle in its element. This gives the modeller all the material needed for a modelling project - including scale plans and camouflage schemes from KMW, the manufacturer of the Leopard 2A5. The military vehicle enthusiast will also find the book of interest as the complete development story - from the initial idea of replacing Leopard 1 during the 1990s to the introduction of the Leopard 2A5 in 2004 - is covered. The development of the latest QRF variant is also told.
