So that’s 4 from Poland and 4 from Canada delivered, off to a good start! Apparently 14 from Germany and a few from Sweden will be arriving in the immediate future. Plus the massive shipment of Bradley and CV90 IFV’s- which are technically not main battle tanks, but have significant anti-armour capabilities against Russia’s ancient tank fleet.

Is there a published timeline for those? I wasn’t really including anything that’s in the horizon, but I know that Germany has committed quite a bit.

Germany plans to send the tanks until end of March. The crew training will also be completed until then.

I guess most of the Leo2s from the first batch are scheduled for that date. Hopefully at least enough to equid two full battalions. One with 2A6 (and similar versions) and one with 2A4.

Cool, plus whatever Leo 1’s they can round up!

Bradleys are meant to work in concert with the MBTs providing infantry coverage and the experts say that the Bradley “was purpose designed to counter [Russian BMPs]."

I mean I know it's almost become a meme in these these threads bus the fact that the Bradley's took out more T72's in the gulf war than the MBTs does feel especially relevant

Simple numbers game.

There are way more Bradley's than any other MBTs.
