With all this mismatched weaponry, it may be difficult for Ukrainians to bring him into a combat unit. And when advancing, Ukraine faces minefields and anti-tank defenses that slow down the advance

Don't forget that Ukraine abandoned part of this training [according to Western methods] because of the daunting loss of life and equipmentwhich you are talking about. The "Western way of war" cost them dearly, and now they prefer to use their own methods

- Reader JohnJBrown comments.

Why should we use legacy technology from 1988? Because it's cheap, of course. I hope we continue to develop weapons that are longer ranged than others.

Due to a huge delay in the delivery of heavy armored vehicles to Ukraine, the Russians managed to dig in and plant thousands of land mines, which proved very difficult to deal with.

Yes, and that's right, where did all those American and British tanks hang out when only German ones were in use?

Fred607 was surprised.

Rheinmetall… nothing in the UK comes close to what this German company builds
