British Challenger 2 tanks arrived in Ukraine

British Challenger 2 tanks have officially arrived in Ukraine.

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov published video footage of heavy British Challenger 2 tanks that arrived in Ukraine. The exact number of combat vehicles of this type that arrived in Ukraine is not known. However, we are talking about at least three tanks, although it was previously mentioned that we are talking about the delivery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the first batch of a company of Challenger 2 tanks (14 combat vehicles - ed.).

On video footage published by the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov, one can see tanks being tested at one of the training grounds in Western Ukraine. There are also other samples of military equipment, which, in all likelihood, will have to provide cover for British tanks during their combat use.

The day before, the first evidence of the arrival of Challenger 2 tanks in Ukraine appeared, although there was no official announcement of their transfer to Kyiv. In total, the UK intends to transfer 28 Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine, as previously reported.

To date, this is the third type of Western-style tanks that arrived in Ukraine. In particular, it was previously reported that French AMX-10RC tanks, as well as 32 Leopard 2 tanks from Germany and Poland, had arrived in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
