Former Czech Army Chief of Staff General Jiří Šedivý called the German Leopard tanks supplied to Ukraine “overrated” on March 31 in an interview with Czdefence magazine.
According to him, German Leopard tanks are not a “miracle weapon” at all and are overrated.
“The Turks used Leopards in operation in Syria against the Islamic State (organization banned in Russia) and lost at least ten units in just a few operations,” the general said.
On March 29, 2023, the Portuguese Ministry of Defense announced the transfer to Ukraine of three Leopard 2 tanks of the A6 modification.
According to the German Defense Ministry, 18 Leopard 2 A6 tanks were delivered to Ukraine on March 27, 2023.
