Many European countries announced that they will provide Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. Leopard 2 and M1N1 world’s top main battle tanks will arrive in Ukraine one after another, and the Russian army’s nightmare will be staged soon.
Faced with Russia’s preparations for large-scale conscription and a new offensive against Ukraine, the United States and NATO countries are generally prepared to assist Ukraine with heavy tanks. Because what Ukraine lacks is heavy equipment and heavy weapons.
But no one thought that European countries would be so united to support Ukraine’s most powerful tank in Europe, the Leopard 2 main battle tank. Even Finland, which has always been neutral, and Spain, which is more neutral, have publicly stated that they will assist Ukraine with Leopard 2 main battle tanks. This shows that Russia’s war against Ukraine is too unpopular, and most countries want to do something about Ukraine. So much so that not only NATO, but also European countries are working together to target Russia.
Even Turkey, which on the surface is better than Russia, has given Ukraine a lot of support.
This time, many European countries aid Ukraine Leopard 2 tanks. It is estimated that Ukraine will be able to get about 100 Leopard 2 tanks at once. In addition to the 50 M1 main battle tanks that the US government will give, Ukraine will be able to get about 150 in a short period of time. Left and right heavy main battle tanks.
The German Leopard 2 tank is really powerful. It can withstand the blow of a 125mm gun within a distance of 1.2 kilometers. This is the protective armor designed for the Russian 125mm tank gun. Why is the protection so strong?
The main use is steel and ceramic composite gap armor plate. This protective plate can greatly dissipate the kinetic energy of incoming shells. At the same time, its stabilizer is very good, and its shooting accuracy is relatively high while on the move. In addition, it is also equipped with thermal imagers and advanced night vision devices. This type of equipment should generally be better in quality than Russian tanks.
Therefore, although Germany only maintains about 300 Leopard 2 tanks, a small number, European countries generally have Leopard 2 tanks. The number of tank companies that each country aids Ukraine is huge.
