18 new Leopard 2 tanks are ordered by Germany to replace those that were shipped to Ukraine


The German government has recently ordered 18 new Leopard 2 tanks to replace vehicles that were sent to Ukraine. The tanks are being purchased as part of Germany’s ongoing commitment to support Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. The tanks will be used to equip a Ukrainian mechanized brigade that will serve alongside the Ukrainian military in the east of the country. Germany has committed to providing Ukraine with military aid and equipment, including modern tanks, to ensure it can defend its territory and citizens from continued aggression from Russia.
