So why did the Leopard tanks become the most critical topic in the 11th month of the occupation?
– HOW EFFECTIVE?
Tank use has been questioned since the Nagorno-Karabakh War in 2020. While the superiority of unmanned aerial vehicles attracted the attention of the world public in that war, a similar situation occurred in the first weeks of the Ukrainian occupation. But the need for tanks increased as the war shifted from cities to large rural areas in the Donbas region.
– WHO WILL GIVE?
Poland announced that it will give 14 Leopard tanks to its neighbor. Finland is also willing. Kiev is demanding 300 Tanks , Military Experts Say About 100 Will Make A Significant Difference. Turkey, Spain, Greece and Germany are countries with more than 300 war-ready Leopards.
– WHY LEOPARD?
These tanks with four crews can travel at a speed of 70 km per hour and can travel 500 km. There are more than 3500 of these tanks in 20 countries, which have been tried in Kosovo, Syria and Afghanistan. This means widespread spare parts and training opportunities in the geography adjacent to the war zone.
