Germany provides another military assistance package to Ukraine

As part of the new military assistance package provided by Germany, Ukraine will receive mine clearing tanks, howitzers, drones, and other military equipment units.

The relevant statement was made by the German Federal Government on August 4, 2023, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

The new military assistance package includes two Zuzana 2 self-propelled howitzers (as part of the project jointly financed with Denmark and Norway), two WISENT 1 mine clearing tanks (four were  handed over before), 11 mine ploughs for T-72, and nine border protection vehicles (168 were delivered before).

Additionally, Ukraine receives three VECTOR reconnaissance drones  (81 were sent before), five mobile antenna mast systems (42 were handed over before), and five SurveilSPIRE mobile reconnaissance systems.

Germany is also preparing to send to Ukraine forty MARDER infantry fighting vehicles (20 are already in service on the battlefield in Ukraine), six Bergepanzer 2 armoured recovery vehicles, seven mobile, remote controlled and protected mine clearing systems, and 18,000 man-portable anti-tank weapons.

A reminder that Germany is the second biggest supplier of military aid to Ukraine after the United States.
