What is special about Germany’s Panther-2 tank? Why Europe is not united in sending Ukraine, why Russia is in shock – Russia Ukraine War Updates Germany Panther 2 Tank Specifications Importance tstr

Germany has made it clear that if European countries want to supply Panther-2 tanks to Ukraine, it will not be an obstacle. German Foreign Minister Anna Perbach said that if Poland gives Ukraine the Panther-2 tank, we will not stand in its way.

Ukraine wants to acquire Panther-2 tanks so that it can counter the Russian army and re-occupy its territories. The German-made Cheetah-2 tank is the most used tank.

However, if any other country wants to give Ukraine a Panther-2 tank, it will have to get Germany’s approval. Germany says it can send tanks if it wants to, but risks a direct confrontation with Russia.

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Monday that he is waiting for German approval to send tanks to Ukraine. He also said he would send another tank to Ukraine if approval was not granted. Meanwhile, EU foreign policy chief Joseph Borrell said Germany would not stop exporting tanks.

The German-made Leopard-2 tank is used by more than 20 countries worldwide, including more than a dozen NATO members. Now Germany is being pressured by Poland and other countries to send Panther-2 tanks to Ukraine.

Why is the Cheetah-2 tank so special?

The Cheetah-2 tank is manufactured by Krauss-Mafi Wegmann of Germany. According to the company, this is one of the most dangerous battle tanks in the world. It is also said that the capacity of this tank remains the same for about fifty years.

The weight of this tank is 55 tons. It can seat four players. The range of this tank is up to 450 kilometers. This tank can run at a speed of 70 kilometers per hour.

There have been four variants of it so far. Its first variant entered service in 1979. Equipped with 120 mm smoothbore gun. It has a digital fire control system.

The tank is 11 meters long and 4 meters wide. The special feature of this tank is that the soldiers sitting in it will be safe even if there is return fire from the enemy.

But why does Ukraine want it?

On February 24 last year, Russian President Vladimir Putin declared war on Ukraine. Putin called it a military operation. Russia and Ukraine have been fighting for 11 months with no resolution yet.

During these 11 months, the Russian military carried out rapid bombings and attacks against Ukraine. The Russian army has occupied many parts of Ukraine. Ukraine wants to wrest these territories from Russia. That is why he needs weapons.

Ukraine has asked the West for more than 300 tanks, 500 infantry fighting vehicles and more than 700 new artillery systems. He believes that if he receives weapons from Western countries, he will be able to free his land from the clutches of the Russian army.

Ukraine has so far received weapons and tanks from several Western countries, including the United States and Britain. However, the Ukrainian army still has Soviet-era T64, T72 and T90 tanks. Russia has the same tanks.

According to the news agency, two-thirds of the tanks used in the war against Ukraine have been destroyed or captured by the Ukrainian army. However, now Russia’s new fangled T90M tank has become a challenge.
