By Defence Industry Europe

Polish state-owned defence conglomerate, Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ), announced the transfer of repaired Leopard 2A4 tanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. These tanks underwent repair work at the Bumar-Łabędy plant. The work on additional tanks is already underway, PGZ said.


While the exact number of tanks transferred to the Ukrainian side hasn’t been officially disclosed, recent reports from September indicated that a total of five Ukrainian Leopard 2A4 tanks were repaired at Polish defence industry plan Bumar-Łabędy.

Bumar-Łabędy, the company responsible for these repairs, is actively involved in repairing not only Leopard 2A4 tanks but also T-72 and T-64 tanks belonging to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.



Ukraine had initially received a generous donation of 40 Leopard 2A4 tanks, and there are plans for the delivery of another 14 units scheduled for the upcoming year. These tanks were donated by Poland (14), Canada (8), Norway (8), and Spain (10).

As part of the agreements forged between the Polish and German defence ministers, the Polish defence industry has taken on the pivotal role of repairing Ukrainian Leopard 2A4 tanks, while the tanks in the A5 (Strv 122) and A6 standard will be repaired by the German industry.
