Poland announced the shipment of another 60 PT-91 Twardy tanks to Ukraine

Poland is sending two additional tank battalions of PT-91 Twardy combat vehicles to Ukraine.

The delivery of 60 PT-91 Twardy tanks to the armament of Ukraine will have to cover the time required for the arrival of Western heavy tanks Leopard 2, Challenger 2, etc., since it may take about two months for Western countries to train tank crews.

It is known that the shipment of Polish PT-91 Twardy tanks should begin within the next two weeks. In Ukraine, there are already trained tank crews to work on these combat vehicles, which, by the way, are analogues of the Soviet T-72M1 tanks.

In fact, in less than a year, Poland became the largest supplier of tanks to Ukraine, providing the Armed Forces with about 350 combat vehicles. The situation is somewhat aggravated by the fact that today Poland still has about 200 Soviet-style tanks or their modernized counterparts in service, which could potentially be transferred to Ukraine. However, Poland does not want to transfer all military vehicles to Kyiv at once, risking being left without armored vehicles, and therefore, if deliveries can take place, this will happen no earlier than a year and a half after the Polish Armed Forces receive armed with South Korean, European and American tanks.
