Munich Package: Germany to provide more weapon systems to Ukraine

By Defence Industry Europe

On the eve of the 60th Munich Security Conference, the German government, led by Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, signed a landmark German-Ukrainian security agreement. The agreement introduces the "Munich Package," a military support package for Ukraine valued at approximately EUR 1.13 billion, focusing on air defence and artillery.

 

German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius commented on the agreement, stating, “Our security agreement with Ukraine is historic. For the first time in its history, the Federal Republic of Germany acts as a guarantor state. Today’s signing is a clear signal that Germany is meeting its increased security policy responsibilities in Europe. Our ‘Munich Package,’ worth over EUR 1 billion, reaffirms our continuous military support for Ukraine and demonstrates our commitment to stand with our Ukrainian partners in their fight against Russian aggression.”



 

Key components of the Munich Package include:

  • Panzrehaubitze 2000 artillery systems: In addition to the previously provided 14 Panzer Howitzers 2000 from Bundeswehr stocks, Germany will deliver 18 more from industry stocks to Ukraine in 2026 and 2027, including training, spare parts, and ammunition.
  • RCH 155 self-propelled howitzers: Beyond the initially planned 18 Wheeled Howitzer RCH 155, Germany will supply Ukraine with an additional 18 units, including training, spare parts, and ammunition, with deliveries spanning from late 2025 to 2027.
  • Artillery ammunition: For the first time, Germany will supply Ukraine with 122mm caliber artillery ammunition, with a shipment of 120,000 rounds expected this year.
  • Skynex Air defence system: Germany will provide Ukraine with a second Skynex system, set for delivery in 2025.
  • IRIS-T SLS missiles: In addition to previously delivered and planned IRIS-T SLS missiles, Germany will supply Ukraine with an additional 100 missiles within this year.
