This looks to be an excellent reference book. How do the WWP books compare to the Tankograd series?

It makes me smile seeing this reference book as I have been to Munster and examined as well as photographed that particular Leopard from all conceivable angles back in 2010. I also found it interesting that the museum's placards claim that, after the Leo Is the M48 served as the interim tank before the Leo II was in general use. Hard to believe...

Trackpad delves more deeply than WWP or Tankograd into the welded-turret Leopard 1 with it's Danish Leopard 1A5DK book. Reviewed here: http://www.armorama.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=Reviews&file=index&req=showcontent&id=12536. Trackpad also delve into the cast turret 1A5 http://www.trackpadpublishing.com/1a5---the-ultimate-leopard-1
