KMW-established service base in Slovakia started operating

With a new repair centre near the Slovakian border with Ukraine, governments and the arms industry intend to ensure that heavy weapons can continue to be used to defend against Russia’s war of aggression. The base has started operations, said German Brigadier General Christian Freuding, head of the Special Task Force on Ukraine at Germany’s Ministry of Defence.

The defence industry company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) is now arranging for weapons that are worn out or have been damaged in combat to be repaired in the region.

So far, Germany has provided Ukraine with 14 type PzH2000 self-propelled howitzers, 5 MARS II multiple rocket launchers and 30 Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns, as well as 50 Dingo armoured personnel carriers. Another 7 Gepard SPAAG are to follow.
