The first batch of British FV103 Spartan armored vehicles received by the Armed Forces of Ukraine will go to the Avdiivka and Bakhmut area

The first batch of FV103 "Spartan" armored vehicles purchased in the UK by the Petro Poroshenko Foundation has arrived in Ukraine. According to reports, it included six FV105 "Sultan" command and staff armored vehicles and FV103 "Spartan" armored personnel carriers. Eight more British armored vehicles of the CVR (T) Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked) family are awaiting shipment.


Poroshenko personally commented on the delivery, saying that they would go into service with the airborne assault units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fighting in the area of ​​Avdiivka and Bakhmut. The ex-president of Ukraine is confident that British armored vehicles are exactly the reinforcement that the Ukrainian military expects. In total, Poroshenko purchased 14 armored vehicles, including FV103 Spartan armored personnel carriers, FV104 Samaritan military ambulances and FV105 Sultan control vehicles. All equipment will be sent to Poland, and from there to Ukraine.

The first Spartans are already in Ukraine. And soon they will be near Bakhmut and Avdiivka. Landing, keep reinforcements

- Poroshenko wrote in one of the social networks banned in Russia.

Meanwhile, in Ukraine, a Beobachtungspanzer artillery reconnaissance and fire control mobile station based on the M113 tracked armored personnel carrier was spotted. The armored car was filmed during its evacuation with the help of the BMP-1 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The machine itself was developed in Germany and was in service with the Bundeswehr until 2002, after which it was sent to storage.

Of interest is the fact that officially Beobachtungspanzer were not delivered to Ukraine, so it is not known which country supplied them. It has been suggested that this could be Lithuania, which recently delivered two unnamed artillery fire control vehicles to Ukraine.

      What a generous oligarch! It would be better if he bought something for the relatives of the dead VSUshnikov, otherwise they are outraged why their heroes return without prey, and even dead.
      .When you look through the tearful cries for help and come into contact with the relatives of the dead, you involuntarily catch yourself in a feeling of pity. It is easy to get rid of him - just take a closer look at the photos of the missing and the pages of their relatives, on which crying alternates with obscene patriotic chants and calls for radical reprisals against the inhabitants of Russia. No one regrets that hostilities were unleashed, and women are outraged by only one thing: why did the husband die, after all, he had to return with laurels and trophies? .. The “horrors of mobilization” in Ukraine also turn out to be, to put it mildly, greatly exaggerated . Most of the military are ideological, contract soldiers. Glossy, large, sleek and well-fed (as it should be in Western Ukraine, where there is a cult of hearty food), they pose with a satisfied grin with machine guns, machine guns against the backdrop of guns firing at peaceful cities.


      .“We beg you, help me find my beloved husband! He was in the Kherson region, the tank commander, - the potential widow cries. He has a tattoo all over his back. And on the right leg there is a tattoo of a bear with the letter "Z", whose head the Cossack pierced with his saber. And below - the flag of Ukraine "...

        What a generous oligarch!

        I don’t know how it is now, but some time ago Poroshenko was the owner of the largest funeral business in Ukraine, and when current incomes fell somewhat, he gave commands about the next “offensives”.

        At the beginning of summer, 35 of these machines were already sent to Bakhmut .... Are they over and will be donors for the next ones? Porosenko decided to throw fresh firewood? yes

        Restore them, equip them with radios / sights / machine guns, take them to the airfield / steamer, take them from the airfield / steamer to Ukraine. Expensive! And almost all Baku go to transport workers. It is better to buy on the go where closer and rivet new ones instead. It's even more expensive, but it makes economic sense.

      We have a civilized country and the oligarchs are forced to pay through taxes. Just take an interest in how the superprofits of metallurgists and oilmen were removed. And Gazprom rolled out dividends for more than a trillion rubles. And there the main shareholder is the state.
      And volunteer purchases are a manifestation of a real civil society and unity with the army. Such purchases are good in that they are operational and satisfy urgent needs, which the army bureaucracy takes longer to reach.

      There is a Russian saying ..-" From the world on a thread naked shirt "-. This is often said when they help together in something that is beyond the means or beyond the strength of one person. From millions of citizens of Russia, all possible assistance and the Russian army is more cheerful. The people support their own. All possible assistance from each significant contribution of the Russian people to their army. From millions of donations to woolen socks. And Potanin today, together with his wife, came under Anglo-Saxon reptilian Rothschild sanctions .. So Potanin is doing everything right! . Look in your pocket, my friend! In your holey pocket!!!

    Explain to me that idiots or enemies are sitting in the Ministry of Defense and the General Staff of the Russian Federation? NATO weapons are coming in bulk, but to destroy the transport infrastructure in the Western region, no, we will not touch them. But how can you fight against the entire military-industrial complex of NATO ???? During the Second World War, our partisans actively waged a rail war, and now when there is a KR, OTRK, UAVs, and nothing .... and what did the zeroed in Kyrgyzstan say, it’s going its own way .. draw conclusions, gentlemen, comrades ...

    Very hemorrhoids. Cars will have to be disassembled and assembled piece by piece. All gaskets, cuffs, tubes, braided wires from the heat have long since fallen into disrepair. There, only the metal is preserved, and everything else needs to be changed, because the storage is in the open.
