I really don’t understand the fuss about Germany sending its leopard tanks to the front lines in the Donbass, as if it would change something in the area of operations.
Let’s see, first of all this is not a car that attends a fast course and you start driving, to use this tank effectively, I know it takes time to be able to use it effectively, for example the operators of this tank in Western Asia carried out courses of 5 years; If, for example, you leave the hatch poorly closed, the crew could suffer more than the objective, a bad gear change would damage the transmission, which would entail taking the tank to Poland to repair it, all this has cost and time (the transmission is not cheap).
Taking into account that each leopard tank costs US$5.74 million (2007) 2A7+: €13–15 million and that since the beginning of the special operation Russian forces have destroyed 7,614 tanks and other armored fighting vehicles, not counting tanks damaged by mismanagement, it is worth remembering that Ukraine is receiving tanks with different types of operation, German, American, etc… and they are being destroyed with lower-priced weapons systems, there are plenty of reasons to understand that leopard tanks 1979 that perhaps the update was to put the digital tachometer will not change the course of this conflict.
The armored vehicles drama; Here is an example of what will happen on the front; A projectile of thousands of € will destroy an armored of millions, difficult to replace. UAV detected Ukrainian armored. As soon as she stopped, she was hit by a 152-mm "Krasnopol" guided shell. pic.twitter.com/W0EzidGUxm
