The UK will supply Ukraine with fourteen Challenger tanks, and around 30 AS90 large self-propelled guns—and will also provide Ukraine with training to operate these tanks and guns.


Jonathan Beale and Jasmine Andersson writing in BBC News make the following points:
  • The Challenger 2 has a crew of 4 and is equipped with a rifled gun that uses non NATO standard ammunition.
  • However, the rifled gun allows the Challenger 2 to hit targets at a distance.
  • The UK hopes the equipment will inspire other countries to donate more modern equipment.
  • Subject to approval, Poland plans to supply 14 German-made Leopard tanks.
