The book is a Gem with all of the photos, the only real mistake that caught my eye and as a "TANKER" from the sandbox it should have been as the official name is Leo 2A6M CDN, not CAN .

Cheers

I don't consider that a mistake at all...even the Government of Canada Letter of Interest for the Tank Replacement Project refers to them as "Leopard 2A6M CAN".

CAN. CDN. two ways to abbreviate Canada.

Looks like a good book.
