The Israeli company Elbit Systems will supply ammunition for the Leopard tanks of the Swedish army

46

Sweden has been intensively engaged in the rearmament of its army against the backdrop of events in Ukraine. Israeli company Elbit Systems was recently awarded a $27 million contract to supply munitions for tanks Swedish army. As you know, the Swedish armed forces are armed with Leopard tanks.


According to the contract, the Israeli company will supply ammunition and data tuners to Sweden. We are talking about the M339 ammunition, which meets NATO standards. The Swedish military expects that the new ammunition will more effectively hit targets. An increase in the firepower of tanks is also expected.

Elbit believes that the choice of Sweden indicates the growing interest of Western armies in Israeli weapons. This, in turn, is very important for the development of the country's economy and its military exports. The company is confident that it will be possible to fulfill the contract in 10 months.

Interestingly, Elbit previously signed a contract with Finland for the supply of M339 ammunition for its Leopard 2 tanks. As you know, the German-made Leopard main battle tank was originally equipped with a ground navigation system and a mine protection system consisting of additional armor elements.

Currently, according to open sources, the Swedish ground forces are armed with 120 Strv 122 (Leopard 2S) main battle tanks. This modification of the German tank was developed specifically for the conditions of warfare in Sweden, that is, taking into account the wooded area.

Is the decision of the Swedish command to modernize tanks with the installation of data tuners related to fears that the NLAW and Javelin transferred to Ukraine could eventually be used against tanks in Europe? ..

      The Swedes still keep the experience of Poltava in their historical memory, so any of their actions regarding weapons have a hidden connotation of this experience.

        It's a long way to carry ammunition from Israel to Poltava for Swedish tanks. And will this ammunition reach there.

      Israel has no moral principles where it smells of extra money. If only the weapon was not used by the Jews. the rest is not their concern. there is a demand - get it.

    Is the decision of the Swedish command to modernize tanks with the installation of data tuners associated with fears that the NLAW and Javelin transferred to Ukraine could end up being used against tanks in Europe?

    Why did the authors of the news decide to call the purchase of ammunition a modernization, and how could they come to the conclusion that this was due to the anti-tank weapons transferred to Ukraine?

      Because the use of these shells requires the modernization of tanks and they are designed to defeat tank-dangerous infantry behind barriers, armor and in open areas.
      Free advice (the rest for $): read the article in full and at least on the wiki specify what they are writing about.
      According to the contract, the Israeli company will supply Sweden with ammunition and data tuning blocks. It's about ammo. M339which complies with NATO standards.

    The Israeli company Elbit Systems will supply ammunition for the Leopard tanks of the Swedish army
    Here are those times. The other day the Swedes were actively getting ready to go to war with Russia and even shook their fists, but it turns out that for modern shells you need to turn to someone else (in this case, Israel). For some reason, I immediately remembered: “Don’t you know that no one is fighting in a single-breasted one now?” But before such a need was not felt, but the American-European hysteria came and you will get it.

          And who will check that these are not shells for Ukrainian T-72s? , they are carrying various ammunition under the guise of humanitarian aid. By the way, Poland has Leopards, and it is preparing for a blitzkrieg against Ukraine.

            you think funny laughing

            That is, in your opinion:

            - Israel gives birth to 125-mm ammunition from somewhere, separate, by the way (he definitely does not produce them himself)
            - under a fictitious contract for completely different ammunition supplies them to Sweden
            - and then all this shnyaga somehow ends up in Ukraine.

            Did I understand your idea correctly? If so, then it's too complicated. It’s easier to drop it from neighboring Poland, there’s definitely a 125 mm there.

                        My personal conclusion is that you need to stay as far away from Israel as possible.
                        This country is a provocateur, worshiping the golden calf and closely associated with the enemies of Russia. Bandera and the Nazis were financed by Israeli capital. By supplying ammunition to Sweden and Finland, does Israel understand who they will be used against.
                        Morality and Israel are incompatible concepts.

                        I find it difficult to attribute the Nazis to people.
                        This is an indicator of the degree of poisoning of society with the seeds of Hitler's ideals. Sadly, but not fatally, the remaining 99% of the Russian population, fortunately, are disgusted by what you declare.

    What a gray muddy scheme. Are there gunpowder factories in Israel? It looks like they are making a gesheft on the resale of ammunition. There is also the concept of original ammunition from the manufacturer.

      Moreover - in Israel there is a production of ammunition, oddly enough.

      It was you who deceived. There are standards by which ammunition is made, who produced them according to these standards is absolutely indifferent.

        Moreover, the M339 Kalanit projectile is a purely Israeli development, and not a licensed copy of any ammunition.

    "" The decision of the Swedish command to modernize tanks with the installation of data tuning units is not connected with fears that the NLAW and Javelin transferred to Ukraine could end up being used against tanks in Europe? .." ""
    Well, it’s not clear that they’ve seen enough of the western video of how tanks are destroyed without protection.

    Israeli company Elbit Systems was recently awarded a $27 million contract to supply ammunition for tanks in the Swedish army.

    Who cares, but Israel is doing business on this conflict.

      What else is he supposed to do with it? Hysteria like the EU?
      Israel has its own gas, oil from the best weapons client - Azerbaijan, relations with the EU have always been cool and slightly sanctioned, the economic influence of the United States is almost balanced by investments from China and India. Vigorous loaf in his pants, albeit circumcised.

    NLAW and Javelin transferred to Ukraine may eventually be used against tanks in Europe
    They are likely to be used against buses and passenger trains, and this use is not necessarily limited to the territory of the former independent, or even the Russian Federation.
