General Dynamics Santa Bárbara Sistemas presents and delivers the first Leopardo 2E tanks to the Spanish Army
General Dynamics Santa Bárbara Sistemas (GD SBS) presented last June 17th 2004 in its Seville factory the first Leopardo 2E Main Battle Tank (MBT) for the Spanish Army in an official ceremony chaired by His Majesty Juan Carlos I, the King of Spain, with the presence of more than one hundred civil and military authorities as well as executives of the defense sector.
The unveiling of the first Leopardo 2E with the Spanish colors and banners took place at the semianecoic chamber, one of the biggest in Europe, manufactured on purpose at the factory of Las Canteras to undertake electromagnetic tests, in the presence of the President of General Dynamics Corporation, Nicholas D. Chabraja, the Spanish Ministry of Defense, José Bono, and the President of the Board of GD SBS, Antonio de Oyarzábal.

They choose Santa Bárbara Sistemas as the main contractor. The program, with a budget of 1,939.4 million Euros, includes also the integrated logistical support, training courses for crew instructors and maintenance engineers and driving, tower, maintenance, aiming and shooting simulators.
To face this industrial challenge, Santa Bárbara Sistemas made total investments of 35.3 million Euros, mainly in its factories of Sevilla, Trubia (Asturias), La Coruña and Oviedo. The main items were allocated to the construction of new facilities and the acquisition of production and test equipment.
The Leopardo 2E Program represents a total of 2.6 million working hours (hours of manpower in direct labor ).
The Spanish government stipulated that the percentage of participation of the national industry had to be at least of a 60 per cent, this figure will probably be exceeded. The industrial structure included tens of Spanish and German companies. The most representative Spanish companies, besides from GD SBS, are INDRA (combat system), IZAR (engine), SAPA (transmission, chains and final steps), AMPER (communications) and ELECTROOP (stabilization).
