Spanish “Santa Barbara” repairs Leopard 2 tanks for the Armed Forces of Ukraine – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

So far, only four cars are in good condition. Six more were sent to repair in Seville, where Santa Bárbara Sistemas is located. It is known, among other things, for the licensed production of the Leopard 2A6, as well as BMR-600 armored personnel carriers, VEC-M1 reconnaissance vehicles, SIAC 155-mm howitzers, combat vehicles of Pizarro infantry and the modernization of the M60 and AMX-30 tanks.

In total, the ground forces of this state have 108 Leopard 2A4s in storage, and it is possible that, in addition to these ten units, others will be sent over time. Curiously, previously the Spanish authorities complained about the poor condition of this equipment.

Poland, Norway and Canada also supply multi-ton armored “cats” of this modification. The APU will also receive Leopard 2A6s from Germany, Portugal and the Swedish version of the Leopard 2A5 Stridsvagn 122, some seven dozen units in all. This alone is enough to form two battalions.

In addition, about a hundred even less advanced Leopard 1s are expected, which are armed with 105mm rifled guns, which have limited use against modern tanks.
