Putin issues threat to US: Vladimir says 'we will deploy more than tanks' and warns 'we have friends on American continent' as he claims Russia is 'again' threatened by German tanks at WW2 ceremony

That is very true about the "friends" issue.

Far more widespread than they should be.

We are again threatened by German Tanks

That would have been great!
The Russians would have had an excuse not to invade Ukraine.

But unfortunately, Germany trusted them and too often looked away out of shame of its past.
Oh, and because of the cheap gas of course.
So let's stay realistic.

Well I think Germany knew he would say something like this, which is probably a part of their nervousness about tanks.

But- Germany is second only to the USA in total support to Ukraine.

The largest aid providers are USA, EU commission, UK, Germany. If you add Germany's contribution to the EU commission aid to their contribution as a nation then they have contributed more than the UK. It's not a competition, but Germany are not lagging behind despite what some parts of the press might want one to believe.

Apparently Germany have also offered 88 Leopard 1s, old and not as much armour as Leo2s and also just the 105mm main gun.

But heh, see what Ukraine can do with them.

Andy ONeill03 Feb 2023 11:16 a.m. PST

88 huh. I feel it would be appropriate if they could supply 251 IFV,

soledad03 Feb 2023 11:18 a.m. PST


Reminds me of the 88mm AT gun. Or it could mean the 8th letter in the alphabet "H". 88 means HH which is a white power symbol for "Heil Hitler"…

The Germans truly are a devious bunch :)

No matter what Putin says about anything he is full of 🐮💩 … Once KGB always KGB.

But wait Vlad, Russian MBTs, AFVs, etc. will be "eaten up" by German "Big Cats" again.

The 105mm Leopard gun has an excellent H.E. round. Most 120mm guns do not even have an H.E. round. They use the Heat round instead, which does not work as well.

Russia currently is threatened by a lot of its own tanks… but I'm guessing they don't like to dwell on that bit!

He must think we're idiots – no Russian tank or soldier has anything to fear from anything or anyone if they are tracking around inside Russia.

When they roam around, invading other people's countries then they should expect to be targeted. That doesn't seem an unreasonable position, nor is it difficult to understand.

Mr Putin, take your people home and be safe!!

invading other people's countries

But, but, but, they're not other people's countries if a Czar or Premier once thought Russia should own them!

interested to see how leo1 would match up gun v russain tank
what is the current anti tank round available for the 105mm gun

JMcCarroll06 Feb 2023 4:27 p.m. PST

The Nato 105mm gun has never let the Israel army down vs. Russian armour.

ROUWetPatchBehindTheSofa07 Feb 2023 11:18 a.m. PST

178 Leopard Is have been approved apparently – I'm sure by tomorrows news cycle they will simultaneously be at the gates of Moscow and all smoking wrecks with pictures (probably mysterious all short one road wheel or strangely low res…)

I heard that too … somehow I'm suspect. If you want to be a Merc, there are PMCs and the FFL of course.
