The Norwegian government confirmed its intention to purchase German tanks Leopard 2

The Norwegian government confirmed its intention to purchase 54 tank Leopard 2 made in Germany. This was reported by the Reuters news agency, citing Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stere.

According to the head of the Norwegian government, the country's authorities are striving to possess tanks similar to those that are in service with the armies of other Scandinavian countries, as well as many European allies in the NATO military bloc. In addition, the supply of German tanks is intended to strengthen relations between Norway and Germany.



Oslo intends to order the above military equipment for its army from the German company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Group. In addition to the delivery of 54 combat vehicles, it is also expected to receive an option to purchase another 18 similar tanks.

Earlier it was reported that the German authorities plan to supply the Ukrainian army not only with Leopard 2 tanks, but also with older Leopard 1 tanks. This is due to the difficulties in finding enough ammunition for their military equipment.

According to the publication Süddeutsche Zeitung, the militants of the Kyiv regime have already used up about half of the 60 ammunition supplied to them for the German Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft systems. Previously, similar ammunition was produced for deliveries to Qatar and Brazil, now the German authorities are trying to negotiate the re-export of shells from these countries. However, Brazil has already refused to supply the ammunition it has.

    In vain they are in a hurry, after they arrive in Ukraine and are destroyed, the price can be reduced significantly.

    Somehow, the European military-industrial complex turned out to be rather weak. For years, 50 tanks have been made. Yes, and the storage turned out to be trash and junk, which needs to be reanimated for six months. The Americans cannot deliver a hundred Abrams due to logistical problems. But rather because of the exorbitant price of fuel, which the Abrams just eat in buckets. And the time is stretched for six months again. Actually, it's all in our hands. Time works for us, that and look somewhere else in the world a hot spot will blaze. Either in Taiwan, or in the Persian Gulf, or maybe in the Aegean Sea. and it is already clear that NATO will not pull any war on two fronts.

    In total, 72 combat vehicles ... It’s interesting how the Germans will cope with all orders, it seems that they are clearly not able to fulfill them even within five years and someone will have to stand in the waiting line or buy tanks from the USA or Korea

    In! We sent orders for Leopards. And then they wrote here that they say the cunning Americans will force Leo out of the European market with their Abrams. Something is invisible, I think this is just the beginning and all EU countries will now be purchased in full.

    That's who, and Norway is the second after the USA that profits from our NWO, in addition to oil and gas, it pushed into the EU, a ban on export fish products from Russia from new trawlers and fish processing factories. Norgs catch the same thing, but get 25% more , only because Kaliningrad and Murmansk fishermen are being removed from the market. They can afford to buy anything and send it to Ukraine.

    I want it like my neighbor. Krauss-Maffei Wegmann Group is certainly satisfied with the incoming orders, it remains to decide how to fulfill them on time. There will also be an order from the Bundeswehr, because. it turned out (surprisingly) that they themselves are not all right with the tanks as we would like. And at the same time, we still have to share with Ukraine.
