According to him, the Bradley is an armored vehicle with firepower and the ability to send troops into battle. It’s not a tank, but a tank killer, Ryder emphasized.
He also expressed confidence that Western infantry fighting vehicles would significantly strengthen the “already impressive” capabilities of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the field of armored vehicles, RIA Novosti reports.
Earlier it became known that Germany and the United States, for the first time since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine, intend to transfer infantry fighting vehicles to Kyiv. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and US President Joe Biden agreed on this during a telephone conversation the day before. The US side will supply the Bradley BMP and Germany the Marder BMP. Both countries plan to train the Armed Forces of Ukraine to work with the relevant systems.
