German Panther II tanks have arrived in Ukraine

The German Ministry of Defense announced on Monday that 18 Panther 2 battle tanks had arrived in Ukraine. The Ukrainian vehicles were promised in January after months of speculation that the European country would be the first to provide them.

German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said on Twitter that the main battle tanks are making a “decisive contribution” on the Ukrainian front.

According to the source, 40 Marder infantry fighting vehicles and two armored recovery vehicles also arrived in Ukraine.

The Panther 2 tank is considered one of the best modern tanks in Europe. After the announcement, the Ukrainian ambassador in France announced that several European countries had committed to sending more than 300 tanks to fight in Ukraine.

“As of today, many countries have officially confirmed their agreement to release 321 large fighting farms of Ukraine,” Ambassador Vadym Omelchenko told French television at the time. Ukraine’s pool has promised to include 31 M1 Abrams from the US and 14 Challenger 2s from the UK.

On Monday, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov also confirmed that the first outpost of the British Challenger tank had been transferred to the Ukrainian army. A Facebook post showed a Ukrainian politician testing new equipment from the UK.

The post included a photograph showing tanks and military vehicles sent by various European allies and the United States.

“Today, together with the Chief of Defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Major General Maxim ‘Mike’ Myrhorodsky, and our paratroopers, I had the honor of leading a new approach to the armed units. “Challenges from Great Britain, Strykers & Cougars from the US and Marders from Germany,” Reznikov wrote, adding that he had driven out the Challenger himself.

“By the way, after personally “driving” the Challenger, as a participant in the raids of trophies, I can say that even the driver of Rolls Royce feels no less comfortable than the crew of this masterpiece of off-road strategy.” continued
