Kinda, I made a research in Leopard 2 topic and this topic but I couldn't find what I need. Then I thought posting in here should be fine. Sorry if I made a mistake.

 

There are two things I'd do if I were you. The first, is make some primary source contributions of your own, since that is what people like around here. The second is, be much, much more specific with your questions. You asked an extremely general question as your first post here, I'm not surprised nobody responded to you.

what kind of documents do you need? like a book about the Leo or some opsec things which you should just forget

There is a lot of Leopard books but they like a child book or a catalogue. I was looking for more technical documents. I am sure every army that using Leopard 2's have between 5 to 10 books about them(crew manual, maintenance books, etc.) but i couldn't find anything. I know a little bit german but it didn't help me either.

Technical documents about what?

I could quote you the angles the drivers hull wing rear mirrors can be at but that probably wouldn't help.

I will be honest with you, I am an engineer and former tank gunner-driver. I want to work on tank development so I am thinking to apply some defense companies but I must prove them have knowledge and new ideas. You can call me panzer fanboy but I picked Leopard 2 to work on (fairly modern, wide use and capable to install new systems) and begin to research, then found this forum (far best english forum about tanks that I could ever find) and said to myself "Wow those guys have both passion and and knowledge, this forum will definitely help to my research." and yes, it helped a lot but it's not enough. Answer to your question is every little detail of that cat.

One book I can suggest, Armour: Materials, Theory, and Design by Paul J Hazell. (Probably found on libgen)

 

Books and documents however are very sprawled out, unless its something rather minor, people don't really like to give away treasures that detail good info, I can however suggest if you are willing to buy it from amazon, Paul Werner Krapke's book on the Leo 2 or Walter Speilbergers book which mostly plays off Krapke's book (Krapke was the lead manager on the Leo 2 program). Both are in German but contain very detailed information about the development and design of the tank, but if you are looking for genuine armor design characteristics, Hazell's book works.

 

Another thing is that I doubt a company is going to put you straight into the MBT design bureau, so understanding smaller vehicles and ergonomics/design is also important.

He was my lecturer for “Firepower & Protection” & has relocated to Australia. Good dude.

That's actually very cool. Funny how so much stuff can be intertwined sometimes.
