Canadian Defense Minister announces transfer of 200 Senator armored vehicles to Ukraine

Canada will soon begin transferring 200 Senator armored vehicles to Ukraine. This was stated by Canadian Defense Minister Anita Anand during a business trip to Kyiv, where she met with the head of the Ukrainian military department Alexei Reznikov.

As noted on the website of the Canadian government, the main purpose of the visit of the Minister of Defense of the country to Ukraine was to confirm the solidarity of Ottawa with Kyiv. Anand held meetings with representatives of the top Ukrainian leadership. In particular, it was decided to transfer 200 armored vehicles to the Kyiv regime. The cost of this assistance is estimated by the Canadian side at $67 million.

Earlier, Ukraine itself turned to Canada with a request for the transfer of armored vehicles. It should be noted that even before the start of the special military operation, Canada provided comprehensive military support to Ukraine - from supplies weapons and ammunition to the training of Ukrainian servicemen by Canadian instructors.

The Roshel Senator armored car was developed by the Canadian company Roshel Defense Solutions. By the way, this company was founded in 2019 by Roman Shimonov, a Canadian citizen of Ukrainian origin. Now the armored car is supplied not only to Canadian law enforcement agencies, but also to the US Border Guard. The mass of the armored car is up to 8 tons, while it carries 12 fighters, supporting the landing force with fire.

The armored car has special loopholes for firing from the passenger compartment. There is also a hatch reinforced with armored sheets. It can be equipped with machine guns or automatic grenade launchers, according to the Ukrainian press.

      Don't care about the armor, what are we talking about ... Why do we admit the very possibility of the appearance of this trash on the front line. To drown or destroy at the place of transshipment and nothing more.
      And you .. armor, machine gun, capacity .. Sad.

      As I understand it, from 50 meters even a 7.62 machine gun will sew it.

        Well, it's still better than the UAZ, which has no armor at all. And for free and sweet vinegar.

        Well, he googled: "The lack of powerful mine protection reduced the mass and added speed to 110 km / h, and maneuverability on ordinary roads. At the same time, protection against splinters and bullets up to 50 caliber allows you to safely move between buildings in populated areas.

        The landing party inside the armored car is protected from the simultaneous explosion of two light anti-personnel mines. Armor around the perimeter of the passenger and engine compartment provides protection up to CEN B7"
        All the same, there is armor.

    Oh-oh-oh-oh ... the trash is over. Americans kick, first of all, their serfs-accomplices to give away new things.

    Yes, the sponsors are not stingy and really shove what they can, 200 carts on the eve of spring-summer are bad for us, the mobility of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will increase. Surely Zaluzhny and co will try to turn the September scenario.

      in the summer there were few people at the front, so they slipped through the gaps. And ours had to delay the personnel so as not to get into the boilers. Now the situation has changed

      A set of armored vehicles for the light infantry brigade. The British handed over a set of equipment for a reinforced motorized rifle brigade. At Ramstein, a decision is expected to transfer 80-100 Leopard 2 tanks + BMP / BTR, this is just a tank brigade from Europe. The United States can also transfer a set of equipment to 1 tank brigade. Here's a new army corps for you.

      It's time to conduct Sherman's raid on western Ukraine from Belarus. In parallel, play Foch's game, pulling forces to the Donbass, conducting a search in the direction of Slavyansk ...

    Chasing demonstrators on the street and illegal Mexicans at the border is good, but there’s no fighting, it’s better to immediately surrender, even though they will be alive.

      Still, it's better than civilian unarmored vehicles in the army, which we have a lot of that they have.

    Roman Shimonov of Ukrainian origin))) is already ridiculous and proves the absence of the existence of such a nationality. A Ukrainian is a person who betrayed his Russian roots = Judas. Therefore, what we are doing right = the return of Russian lands is a good thing, if only there were no half-measures and Minsk agreements.

    The mass of the armored car is up to 8 tons

    Oh, it weighs too much ... Otherwise, Concorde could stir up a new business project - to organize a taxi fleet and compete with Yandex Taxi
    So what? The taxi drivers won the battle on the Marne!

    200 is a lot ... as I understand it, there is a bet on fast-moving DRG groups. Like they attacked - they ran away .. something like that ..

    The West will supply Ukraine with just enough weapons to defeat Russia. The only thing that can stop the West is a good pre-emptive nuclear strike against Poland (and/or Romania) with a hint of a continuation throughout the rest of Europe and on to the US. There are no other options for ending this war, at least in a draw. Everything else leads to our defeat.

      No, he will put it (weapons) just enough so that the agony of Ukraine lasts as long as possible. And then - she died, so she died, but the States, the tasks set for themselves, will be solved in full.
