I had to share this ! In Leopoldville there will be a farewell parade for the Iron Lions of Belgium (Leopard 1's) the Belgian army decided to keep 8 of these beauties for the purpose of nostalgia. They will be spread over he country in all major armoured barracks.

My uncle has arranged for me (nephew of a senior tank commander) that I can spend 2 days before the parade to prepare the beauties for their last march.

 

I'll let you guys know how it went and if possible some pictures ^^

Quick update:

today we are doing maintenance on the majority of the Leo's because sole of them stood still for 3 years.

some even get a new paintjob tomorrow the old Iron Lions get the chance to fire these beauties because they will do a demonstation for the audiance to let them see what the Leo 1 can do. I get the chance fire the gun of Leo 1 !!  

I was so happy when I heard it that  i fell of the turret of Lion 1 (nothing injured besides my pride).
