Germany to Hand Over “Bergepanzers” to Ukraine

3 units of German repair-recovery vehicles have already arrived in Ukraine, and 2 more units are being prepared for transfer

The website of the German Bundeswehr published a list of military support services provided to Ukraine. Separately, a modified item was highlighted — Bergepanzer recovery vehicles. Initially, it was planned to transfer 3 armoured vehicles that already serve the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Now the Bundeswehr has decided to replenish the Bergepanzer batch by 2 units.

"In order to expedite the processing of certain shipments, the federal government has also introduced procedural simplifications, for example, for protected goods. These supplies are also not included in the cost of the license. Information on the value of used materials from the warehouses of the Bundeswehr is also based on current values, which may be significantly lower than the corresponding new or replacement values," Bundeswehr.

We remind you that this month, Ukraine is expecting Germany's IRIS-T anti-aircraft missile system. By the end of the year, 1 more complex will be sent, and 2 complexes in 2023.

According to the Bundeswehr, since January 1, 2022, Germany has issued licenses for the export of weapons for €774.740.971.
