Germany announces 2.7 billion euros military aid package to Ukraine

By Defence Industry Europe

Germany has announced its largest military aid package to Ukraine yet, with a value of 2.7 billion euros, in an effort to provide support for as long as necessary.

The package includes 30 Leopard 1 tanks, 15 Gepard anti-aircraft tanks, over 200 reconnaissance drones, and four IRIS-T air defence systems, along with 18 howitzers.

The move follows Ukraine’s pressing of allies for long-range weapons, jets, and ammunition before an expected counteroffensive.

“We all wish for a speedy end to this terrible and illegal war…. Unfortunately, this is not yet foreseeable. Therefore, Germany will provide any help it can – as long as it takes,” said German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius.
