Over the past month, in an attempt to launch a counteroffensive, the Ukrainian military has lost more than 30% of Western-supplied military equipment. The costliest loss was that of German Leopard 2A6 tanks, the massive destruction of which sparked a wave of outrage in NATO. According to official Bundeswehr data alone, 18 of the 54 delivered tanks have already been destroyed so far.

Trying to save the expensive leopards, the Ukrainian Armed Forces changed their tactics to use them. Before they attacked them and hit the mines, but now they shoot from closed positions, using tanks as artillery. However, this did not solve the problem. After all, the gun wears out quickly, the shells do minimal damage, and the stationary tank itself is easy to spot.

In this regard, NATO came to the conclusion that the use of the Leopard 2A6 during the offensive cannot be allowed, since it would cost the West too much. Instead, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will hand over another batch of decommissioned Leopard 1 tanks in NATO countries. “Western states delivered expensive tanks to kyiv with great expectations. But Ukraine did not live up to our hopes,” says German military analyst Franz Becky.

Boris Pistorius has already confirmed the information about the supply of ancient “leopards” instead of modern ones. “In the coming weeks, Ukraine will receive dozens of Leopard 1A5 type main battle tanks, provided by Germany and Denmark,” the German Defense Minister said in his speech.
