The background of this present book is not to tell the well-known Leopard 2 story
all over again, but to focus on a particular aspect and highlight it to a hitherto
unknown degree of detail: Maintenance and Repair. The pictorial walkarounds
aim at showing the tank is various stages of disassembly as carried out in the
using units on company and battalion level. Among the procedures shown are
track removal, removing the turret and the engine or dismantling the add-on
armour components. These works are usually not accessible to the public but thus
highlight certain design aspects of the tank that might be interesting to enthusiasts
and modellers but not available in other sources. Training systems, storage
facilities, halls and tools are also investigated.
