Looks interesting, but I'm a bit confused because of the other book from Trackpad Publishing.

I don't know which one to choose.

Both will complement each other.

The Tankograd book will for sure show the tanks in an operational setting in Afghanistan.

Carl Schulze did an excellent job of photographing the five Leopard 2A4M CANs of the 12e Régiment blindé du Canada deployed for combat operations.

The Trackpad Publishing Leopard 2A4M CAN book and my Canadian Leopard 2 Reference Image DVD set concentrate on the tanks in Canada.

Thank you Jason. I'm looking for ISAF pics so I will choose the Tankograd one.

Competition to this book is provided by Trackpad Publishing with a book of the same title. Trackpad's book is more expensive, but in its 80 pages you get 250 photos. Where the Tankograd book concentrates on the tank in Afghan guise, the Trackpad book looks at the tank in service in Canada without the slats and without the Barracuda (though Afghanistan is also well covered). The Trackpad book also takes a brief look at the ordinary 2A4 in Canadian service.

With the upcoming model from HobbyBoss due any time now, both books should have room on the bookshelf of any Leopard fan. In my opinion, the two books do not clash with each other, but compliment each other nicely.
