Media: Germany sent in Qatar tanks and self-propelled guns that can be used in Yemen

Germany sent 4 main transport vessels to Qatar tank Leopard 2 and 3 self-propelled howitzers. As the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung suggests, technology can be used against rebels in Yemen, reports TASS.




The newspaper notes that "Qatar is taking part in the air operation of the Arabian coalition in Yemen against the Houthis, and can use German fighting vehicles to arm one of the Yemeni warring parties."

According to the publication, this circumstance "should put the government and vice-chancellor, the Minister of Economy of Germany Sigmar Gabriel in a difficult position."

Earlier in the press repeatedly appeared information that Qatar provides military and financial assistance to the "Islamic state". In turn, the Emir of Qatar assured Merkel that he never provided support to the IG.

The publication reminds that in the spring of 2013, it became aware of the contract between the German concern Krauss-Maffei Wegman and Qatar’s leadership to supply 86 heavy equipment units, including the 62 tank Leopard-2 and 24 self-propelled Panzerhaubitze 2000. The cost of the transaction (according to the group) amounted to € 1,89 billion.

            I remember at 45 when my grandfather stormed Berlin and miraculously did not disappear on the Zielovsky heights that Adolf was poisoned with cyanide in his bunker before shooting his mistress Eva Brown. Meanwhile, Mgda Goebel poisoned all her five children. The result is known. Do not swarm a hole; another one will get into it.

        4 main tanks "Leopard-2" and 3 self-propelled howitzers.

        What a horror! belay And how much this “mighty armada” is enough in the real conditions of hostilities - a rhetorical question that does not require an answer!
        And in general the Bundesians live hard without the Fuhrer! They even felt sorry for them.
        I have the honor.

          And what about the Bundeswehr? that only to equip one tank platoon and one artillery fire battery of the customer (Qatar) with his wishes.
          The publication recalls that in the spring of 2013 it became known about a contract concluded between the German concern Krauss-Maffei Wegman and the leadership of Qatar for the supply of 86 units of heavy equipment, including 62 Leopard-2 tanks and 24 Panzerhaubitze 2000 self-propelled guns.

          As a result, tank baht. and artillery division of the small army of the emirate.

      Photos "Leopards" burning in the Yemeni prairies

      But so far there are no such photos of the Leclerc, and they have been fighting in those parts for a long time, but alas, there are photos of the broken BMP-3.
      But in general:
      Germany sent 4 main Leopard 2 tanks and 3 self-propelled howitzers to Qatar with a transport vessel. As the newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung suggests, technology can be used against rebels in Yemen, reports TASS.
      Very reminiscent of an attempt to conduct tests in combat conditions. Another model of technology to find out.

      Africans (now Arabs) used to slaughter each other with spears and sabers, there were many deaths, then white people gave them machine guns and tanks, there were even more deaths, I'm afraid to imagine what would happen if they get a nuclear bomb. Illiterate weapons must not be given.

      In turn, the emir of Qatar assured Merkel that he had never provided support to the IS.

      And he assured apparently like this: "Eh, listen, dear Angela Khanum, what kind of support-shmarodorzh? What kind of ISIS-shmigil? Mom kilyanus, did not beat this! Sell the tanks, and? I’ll pay Karosha bakshish." How could you not believe such a respected person? And money is not superfluous ..

        tank "Leopard-2"
        Kürzlich seien vier Panzer vom Typ Leopard 2 und drei Panzerhaubitzen Richtung Katar
        The very name leo-2 does not say anything.

    Quantity - for a couple of battalions. What is it all about? And also to prepare the crews. A tank - of course, it is a terrible beast, but if the infantry is armed with a VET and is not afraid of it - when used individually it is a target that cannot really solve any problems. But the Yemeni rebels were not seen in cowardice.

    just reported 55 dead UAE soldiers. I don’t know why Sudanese decided to get into this conflict. Apparently, this coalition is being beaten from the Saudi of the UAE by the Hausites of Bahrain. And now the economic aspect of this war has also appeared, rich deposits of oil have been discovered in Yemen, which immediately decided to divide the UAE and the Saudis.
