a look. This is the Leopard 2 tank
According to ‘Der Spiegel’, Germany’s decision includes at least one company, which will supply ten Leopard 2 A6 tanks. In time, more tanks could be equipped for use. Leopard 2 tanks will also be supplied to Ukraine from Poland and Scandinavia, among others, the magazine reported.
Scholz is expected to give the go-ahead for German Leopard 2 tank deliveries on Wednesday. The German leader addresses the Bundestag on Wednesday afternoon.
The United States will also consider supplying M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine. This decision by US President Joe Biden would have contributed to Germany’s decision to send tanks to Ukraine after all.
Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky has been clamoring for these combat vehicles for months. He hopes he can break the nearly stalled position war with his 74-ton Leopard 2 tanks. He accused Germany of thwarting the delivery of those tanks. A number of Western countries would like to deliver it quickly. Earlier today, Poland officially asked Berlin for permission to send tanks to Ukraine.
