"Help from NATO": Latvia handed over to the Ukrainian Armed Forces British off-road vehicles developed in the late 1940s

111

In the Latvian city of Lielvarde, Latvia donated British off-road vehicles developed in the late 1940s to representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We are talking about Land Rover Defender cars, which have been produced since 1948.


The fact that Ukraine received this kind of assistance from NATO was announced by the Latvian Defense Ministry.

The ceremony of handing over the cars was attended by the head of the defense department of this Baltic country Artis Pabriks, the Ambassador of Ukraine in Riga Alexander Mishchenko and other officials.


7 lightly armored SUVs will enter service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where they will be used as medical vehicles.

The message from the Latvian Ministry of Defense says that the transfer of vehicles confirms "Riga's support for Ukraine's movement towards integration into European society."

The model, handed over to the Ukrainian military, was developed for the British military, which was involved in the suppression of unrest in Northern Ireland.

Latvia has been actively providing assistance to the Ukrainian armed forces almost from the very beginning of the conflict in Donbass. At the same time, in Ukraine itself, citizens are wondering, where does more than 5% of GDP allocated to the army and navy go, if the Ministry of Defense constantly hopes for outside help, including help with not new cars? ..

        Not true. Queen Elizabeth II drove Austin and Leyland cars in the army


        The Land Rover Defender was produced in 1983-2016 - in the photo, as I see it, this generation between 1990 and 2007 is a simple but good SUV for the army.

          I agree, Constantine. Def is a great utility machine. As well as 'Gelendvagen' in its military incarnation, and not glamorous crap for smelly majors and Armenian-Chechen 'daddies' with glossy faces. Well, you, in Poland, I think you have a similar category too)

            I went to the Defender a lot - so raw, just like on the UAZ, Niva. Gelenda had no chance.

            These are real SUVs (even Niva), not toys posing as SUVs.

            Yes - we also have "beets" wink kind of in G-cars, but smoothed, Porsche Chayene and the like - but this shit is not worth attention - both to the owners and their cars

              These are real SUVs

              As a person who has often been really off the road in his time, I can say the following.

              A real SUV is a helicopter.
              More or less SUVs are Vityaz, MTLB, and so be it, GAZ-71.
              Almost SUVs are Trekol-like or ARGO-like (crazy tub on wheels / tracks) vehicles.
              For a narrow range of conditions, an SUV can be considered - snowmobiles, deer, horses and own legs.

              Everything else - toys for those who want to feel like "off-road conqueror". Even an all-terrain prepared KAMAZ in the same tundra drives only along a dump or a knurled winter road. A step to the left, a step to the right (outside the dumped road) - and we arrived.

              Therefore, for me personally, the disputes about what is more off-road - BMW X6 or Defender - look pretty funny. Both on the one and on the other, you can drive nga fishing, both of them can park on the roadside not cleared of snow or drive onto the curb. And that's all of their really useful properties. And if the Defender is also "lightly armored", then you can forget about everything listed except for driving on the curbs.

          Yeah, she drove. She drove the photographer by the wardrobe trunk, not Austin and Leyland. They don't get out of the trenches with the whole royal family. In the second photo, she is sitting in the car, which in the first photo is in the background, and the wheels of both cars are almost sterile clean and show no wear of the rubber. both garage storage. Even the tarpaulin door curtain has the same folds and numbers start with A1 ...
          And the tarantass may not be bad, especially in terms of an exhibit for replenishing a private collection. In 50 years it will be present in units and valued in hundreds of thousands of pounds.

Secondly, the author of the article is trying to rise up on populist slogans. Yes, I honestly do not care on the whole outskirts and non-brothers.

On June 22, a freight train with 600 tons of radioactive waste left for Russia from a uranium enrichment plant.

      These machines are cool and reliable. In skillful hands of the master. But in this wretched APU they do not run for a long time. Spare parts are missing, expensive and only by mail. There are almost no roads in Ukraine, and even more so in the environmental protection zone. If you run after moonshine and chemerges, they will constantly and quickly crumble. And the class of armor protection is zero.

    Well, now they will give heat, the updated APU with cars of 50-60 years is still that power. These cars certainly deserve a different story and not like Benny Hill. At best, they will be resold in Chihara, at worst they will be killed or torn apart. As it was before with other younger legacy of the USSR. At the moment, they do not know anything else there.

        So I'm talking about too, but the farmers are different. Knowing what avid lovers of such cars we have, they would have sold more and more expensively, but APUs are a separate breed. Of course, somewhere, someone will have something under a haystack, but not a fact.

      “Several years ago, within the framework of the aid package, Ukraine received about 40 Hummer vehicles. They showed themselves well, but there was a question with service. Taras Chmut said that the United States has a peculiar approach - Americans offer a package of services on a commercial basis to free vehicles.

      “We are a free Hummer for you, but service and technical support will cost so much. We always follow the path that we will figure it out ourselves, but this led to the fact that most of the Hummer stood up, "- said the expert ...."

    Armored vehicles based on Defender with a bulletproof body and glass. Great cars.
    Most likely they were stored in some kind of NZ, were not used on a daily basis
    It is difficult to determine the age, the Defender was produced from 1990 to 2016, and this is an armored special version, it could differ in finish from its peers.
    In general, in the former USSR, the Defender was little used, but in the world a very common and demanded simple Machine, although, of course, there have been changes from the first series.
    There is an even older iconic jeep Wrangler, generally from a wartime jeep, is still produced in my civil version.
    Gelendvagen - the idea of ​​the Iranian Shah and his contribution to the world auto industry - is already younger, from the early 70s, but also still holds on to a cult car, but has become a car for the rich, unlike the hard worker Defender

    Indonesia bought from Russia Su-35 aircraft - aircraft developed in the late 1970s


    that the Su-35 is the same as the 10 Suchoj T-1977 (and based on the 1969 competition !!!),

    .... just like the vehicles transferred to Latvia from Land Rovers since 1948, or the Polish F-16 C / D Block 52+ with YF-16 as of February 1974.

    In the USA there is a saying "Beggars can't be choosers" - beggars have no right to be picky. If your country is a dwarf lymphotropic. There is no money (since a small country, then the budget is small). Then be glad to what they give you. Is the armored car holding a bullet from the M240? Thanks already. It is better to have M48A5 or T62 tanks than not to have tanks at all. It is better to drive an BTR-152 than a truck. It is better to equip the army with BM59 rifles (by the way, not bad ones) than to run around with the MP40 or SKS there. Better that there were BRENs or there DP27 than that there were no machine guns at all. It is better to give the police SKS or M1 carbines there than to leave the police without rifles at all. And these armored vehicles for the equivalent of riot police or SWAT, or transporting the wounded, just right. As for the old weapons.

    No one who was shot from the OLD M1911 or from the less old Garand did not boast that they say he had a bullet from an old pistol for nothing. Recently, a couple of blacks climbed into the house nearby. But a boy of 14 years old was sitting at home, who knew where daddy's old Garand was. Result? 5 shots, 5 hits, two niggas dead And no one complained that the 1946 Garand was "old and ineffective." By the way, the famous FALs are still fighting. And NOBODY complains that they say "bad".

    And defender, by the way, is a very good car. As they say in the USA Oldie but Goodie. A what is used. I have Lee Enfield, 49 year old. from a distance of 100 meters, 5 bullets (and not match bullets) are placed without optics in a circle with a diameter of 5 cm., if I don’t idle. It couldn't be better than a rifle. Especially for 200 bucks that I gave for it :-).

    If your entire military budget of the country is dwarf, as a country, then you will not be able to buy RAPHALS, F-35s and the Newest Leopards 2. Somewhere you need to save. Super duper armored personnel carriers are not needed for cops and riot police, old armored cars will do. If only they held 7.62x51 at close range. You don't need the latest Bradley to transport the wounded either. Old Saracen or Defender will do. What a Saracen. For transporting injured BTR152 or even BTR M3 better than some unarmored shit. And the fact that Latvia is helping Ukraine, what surprises you? Some descendants of the degraded Hitler's lackeys help other descendants of others, but not less than the degraded Hitler's lackeys. And it was KHOLUEV, not the Allies. The divisions Charlamein and Norland, although they fought on the battlefield, while the Bandera and Lithuanians tortured and brutally killed the defenseless civilian population.
