Germany hands over radar station to Ukraine to suppress Russian artillery


Germany transferred radar systems to Ukraine to combat Russian artillery. Deliveries, in particular, include a COBRA counter-battery radar and two dozen Gepard armored self-propelled anti-aircraft guns. This is stated in a press release from the German government.


COBRA (Counter Battery Radar) is designed to calculate the location of the opposing side's artillery in the amount of up to 40 firing positions in 2 minutes.

However, Kyiv insists on the supply of more serious weapons for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including Leopard 2 tanks. However, Olaf Scholz made it clear that Berlin does not plan to ship such weapons to help Ukraine. This was reported by the newspaper Die Welt, citing its sources in Ukrainian government circles.

The issue of tank supplies was discussed during the Sunday meeting between Olaf Scholz and Ukrainian Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal. At the same time, as specified in the German edition, the chancellor evaded a direct answer about sending Leopard 2 for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, Scholz's department noted that Berlin would continue to provide Kyiv with military, financial, political and humanitarian support.

Earlier, the German military concern Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) announced the possibility of direct deliveries of one hundred Leopard 2A7 tanks to Ukraine in the amount of 1,55 billion euros. But the final decision on such transactions is made by the German government.

    Now it’s clear why they write such a game in ukroreikh:

    Rashists are trying to evacuate the wounded from the Kherson region, - OK "Pivden"

    According to the command, those military armies of the Russian Federation that were knocked out of fortified positions do not build new fortifications, but dig indentations up to half a meter, fit into them on their backs, raise their legs and wait for a slight injury.

    Germany hands over radar station to Ukraine to suppress Russian artillery

    It is clear with the German +/-, but the question arises - how are things going with the saturation of the artillery units of the allied forces with Zoo stations or similar ones.
    And do they apply at all? After all, data from the fronts, incessant shelling of the cities of the DPR and LPR, directly on the territory of Russia indicate that the enemy’s artillery feels quite at ease.
