There are footage of sending Czech tanks to Ukraine

The Czech Republic became the first country on the planet that decided to send armored vehicles to help Ukraine. On April 5, the public was informed about this in his Twitter account (a social network banned in the Russian Federation) by the OSINTdefender resource, which collects security data from open sources. At the same time, Ondrej Benesik, a member of the Czech parliament from the Christian Democratic Union party, proudly confirmed this information on the same social network.

The images published by OSINTdefender show an echelon loaded with T-72 and BMP-1 tanks. Experts note that the movement of old Soviet armored vehicles from storage warehouses to trains was noticed. Analysts suggest that the shipment of heavy weapons from the Czech Republic to Ukraine has begun.

In turn, Benesik thanked the head of the Czech Defense Ministry, Yana Chernokhova, writing that she deserves great praise. The MP also added that the mentioned armored vehicles are exactly what the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Donbas need most of all now. After that, he expressed the hope that Prague would continue deliveries to Kiev.

Chernokhova confirmed on her Twitter account that the Czech Republic is indeed making some deliveries to Ukraine. However, she refused to specify them and satisfy someone's idle curiosity.

Sorry I can't tell you more. Believe me, we send the necessary military materials to Ukrainian friends. And we will continue to do so.

- she said.

It should be recalled that the Czech Army has 30 T-72M4 CZ units in service - this is a Czech modification of the Soviet T-72M MBT. In addition, about 100 more T-72M tanks are in storage. Prague was not going to part with them, as in 2020 refused from their replacement and decided to extend the modernization program to the level of T-72M4 CZ until 2025.

As for the BMP-1, during the 70-80s of the 1th century, Czechoslovakia produced its own modification, the BVP-2016, under license. Just over 130 units remained in storage as of 2. Moreover, the Czechs also have BMP-2 - this is BVP-120. There are 65 of them left in service and another 300 in storage, and in total more than XNUMX units were produced.

Note that in 2016, the Polish company Wtorplast signed a contract with the Ukrainian side for the supply of 200 different infantry fighting vehicles assembled in Czechoslovakia in the 80s of the last century. In 2018, the Armed Forces of Ukraine received the first batch of 30 Czech-assembled BMP-1s, after which a huge corruption scandal broke out and the history of the contract is not completely clear.

    And apparently this is just the beginning. The technique is not new, but proven and familiar. And this is another big problem. The Czechs have always been someone's "sixes", but they knew how to do the technique.

    Tanks from storage, "naked", without dynamic protection, until the first serious battle.
    BMP-1s are so clean from the inside, but this is where their "dignities" end.
    The meat will be brought to the battlefield, but it is not entirely clear what they will do there with their ancient 2A28 Thunder?
    They send what they themselves are already a burden to contain ..

      before the first big fight.

      It seems to me that they won’t even get to the battle, they will flare along the road.

      That's right, it is necessary to make room for NATO equipment, and it is expensive to dispose of it. And then they will receive a discount from the Americans, theoretically they will annoy Russia and dispose of it.

        so the equipment is not donated, but sold. and the fact that she will not reach the crests is the problem of the crests.

    Very comfortably. At the border, they will just slow down to switch from the European track to ours. Cover there...

      It's time to really destroy the transport infrastructure along the western border, preferably indicatively

        I talk about this all the time. Expand bridges across rivers, especially all across the Dnieper. And then we fight with a large cauldron. and they are constantly bringing new forces. They are going to send tanks from the Czech Republic by rail. Well, it’s hard to break all the railway bridges and immediately the supply of ammunition will stop. On the roads you don’t run into a lot with fuel strained.

          It’s still ripe today - the Kyiv railway junction has been restored and is actually ready for work ... it would be worth starting with it, although it’s better from the western borders

    Some videos from the TVD show that the RF Armed Forces use the same BMP-1 and old MTLBs, and nothing, they are fighting. If these tanks reach the theater of operations, then, despite their age, they can bring a lot of problems. In Chechnya, they fought on the T-62 and somehow coped.

    Which tells me that our intelligence is already leading them. As soon as they cross the border, they will cover it, probably in the evening.

    Add to these old machines a considerable number of modern ATGMs and MANPADS, and so on. armored cars and other help from "partners" and at the end you will get a pretty well armed army. The problem is only with delivery, but, as it turns out, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are somehow solving it.

    Then the fuel would have been sent, otherwise the hyborgs would refuel with what if only with vodka.
