I am going back and forth with some asshat who is syaing we tried to buy a Tank plant in spain so we could aquire technical details on the leopard because it is "so much better" than the M1

Anyone know of this? I cant find any referance to it in a couple searches I did. The leopard doesn't use the same armor as the ChallengerII or M1 coorect? At least that is what I have found so far.

Just found that the plant in spain making them under license is www.gdsbs.com General Dynamics Santa Barbara systems. Is this owned by our General Dynamics or is it a partnnership?

NEVER MIND...I found out that our GD does own the company that makes the Leopard II.

GD buys everything they can, heck, the parts on the Stryker used to be made by a whole bunch of different companies. GD bought almost all of them, but the divisions dont talk to each other as well as they should. Its like you're still dealing with 15 different companies, but they all have the same name.
