Netherlands and Denmark supply Leopard 2A4 tanks to Ukraine

By Defence Industry Europe

The Dutch Ministry of Defence has announced the refurbishment and readiness of the first two of fourteen Leopard 2 A4 tanks, jointly purchased by the Netherlands and Denmark, for Ukraine. These tanks have been renovated by German manufacturer Rheinmetall as part of an initiative to support the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


This initial batch is part of a larger order placed last year, showcasing a collaborative European effort to assist Ukraine amidst its ongoing conflict.

Prior to their deployment on the front lines, these tanks will be sent to Poland for Ukrainian forces to receive specialized training.



Rheinmetall is slated to prepare the remaining twelve tanks in the coming months, with a full consignment, including spare parts and ammunition, expected to be delivered to Ukraine by this summer.

The Leopard 2A4 is recognized for its high firepower, strong protection, and agility, features that are anticipated to significantly bolster Ukraine’s military capabilities.
