Ukraine can get the most modern tank in the world

Ukraine is interested in obtaining modern German infantry fighting vehicles Lynx ("Lynx") of various modifications and promising tanks KF51 Panther ("Panther"). Therefore, Kyiv and Rheinmetall AG held talks on potential supplies, which was announced on February 9 by Armin Papperger, the executive director of the concern.

According to the German newspaper Handelsblatt, Ukraine can get the most modern MBTs and armored vehicles in the world. Papperger said that Ukraine will be able to protect itself from possible threats. He clarified that the concern can produce vehicles from scratch, which means that no state will need to give away its tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

Moreover, Papperger is ready to build a Panther assembly plant in Ukraine after the end of the conflict with Russia, if the German government approves the necessary export permits (licenses). According to him, Kyiv will need security, and Panther "is destined to change the rules of the game on the battlefields of the future." However, the mentioned tank is still under development, but in the end it should replace the Leopard 2 in service with many countries.

We remind you that in the summer of 2022, the concern presented a Panther tank equipped with a 130-mm gun at an exhibition in Paris. Rhainmetall AG expects sales of its products to grow from 3,8 billion euros in 2021 to 6 billion euros in 2023.

    It would be busy picking such a thing, and even a ride. The 130mm gun is more powerful than ours. So when do you say UVZ will finish the fittings? Prescribe magic pendels so that they know their work, and so that their fingers do not stick out in vain!

    This is a favorite western game of "old horse on the stage".

    - Man, put it on me! You will definitely win.
    And then...
    - Well, I couldn't, I couldn't.

    We will definitely deliver it to you!
    - When we finish.
    - Maybe.

    A naive Zelya confuses probably with for sure. How similar these words are.

    According to the German newspaper Handelsblatt, Ukraine can get the most advanced MBTs and armored vehicles in the world.

    You may or may not receive.
    By the way, I used to hear a lot about the American Javelin, and then everything calmed down, only Kadyrov asked Biden to send them more, since Russian soldiers of Chechen nationality successfully mastered them, capturing them as trophies.

    For good reason this sarcasm. Look at the history of Ukrainian hotels. Everything goes like clockwork. We got everything we wanted, and even more. And Zelya is not at all under-gifted, he knows how to use the west. He will also have the most modern tanks, and NATO will openly fight in Ukraine. The point of no return has been passed, the masks have been dropped, everything is clear to everyone, the window of opportunity is open, the United States is in such a convenient situation that they never even dreamed of. Sarcasm is out of place here.

    Ukraine will receive a pitchfork on the water and not a tank plant.

    Ukraine will receive a pitchfork for water, not a tank plant. The thought is idiotic, even more so in the current conditions. Who will allow these rogues to build a modern tank factory? Neither the West nor Russia. The newest, non-existent tanks hypothetically, that is, never, will fall with the fulfillment of impossible conditions.

    I did not understand anything about the performance characteristics of the tank, except for the 130 mm gun. But the number of barrel calibers and other data is not even available for the gun. The pouch is short...
    - Charging machine?
    - Ammunition?
    - range?
    - Ammunition types?
    - Barrel resource?
    I'm not talking about other features...
    Judging by the platform - the weight is over 60 tons, the tower is inhabited, etc ...
