Germany was reluctant to send tanks to Ukraine as it did not want to be singled out for Russian reprisals but President Biden has now agreed to send Abram tanks therefore Germany will send Leopard Tanks.


This BBC article makes the following points:
  • Abram tanks are very complicated to operate and maintain.
  • It will take time before Ukraine can use Abram tanks.
  • Leopard tanks are much easier to operate; therefore, Ukraine is likely to be able to deploy them very quickly.
  • Russia has condemned the moves as a "blatant provocation".
