Portugal to give Ukraine Leopard 2 in March – media

Lisbon is ready to move three of its German-made tanks to Kyiv next month, CNN notes.

Portugal is ready to send three Leopard 2A6 battle tanks to Ukraine in March this year. This was stated in the Portuguese Ministry of Defense, reports CNN.

“The decision was made within the framework of ongoing engagement with allies and partners,” the statement said.

According to the channel, many countries have offered to transfer modern tanks to Ukraine. However, not everyone has confirmed how many they plan to send.

“Most of the south and east of Ukraine, where a lot of heavy fighting is taking place, is an ideal place for combinations of modern Western tanks and armored vehicles to counter-attack,” the media said.

Journalists added that the Leopard 2, Abrams and Challenger 2 have large machine guns that destroy infantry in open locations.

Leopard 2 has another advantage – the availability of ammunition for 120 mm guns in the armies of NATO member countries.

As previously reported, the Netherlands, along with Germany and Denmark, planned to supply almost 100 Leopard tanks to Ukraine.
