At night, the first batch of US-made Bradley infantry fighting vehicles destined for Ukraine arrived in Europe. The cargo ship ARC Integrity on board moored in the port of the German city of Bremerhaven on the North Sea coast.
In total, more than 60 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, an unnamed number of AN / TWQ-1 Avenger mobile air defense systems and M88A2 Hercules armored recovery vehicles (BREM) were loaded on board in the United States. HMMWV vehicles were also seen during unloading. After it was unloaded in Germany, the military equipment will be transferred by rail to Poland and then to Ukrainian front lines.
According to the US Transportation Command (USTRANSCOM), the first batch of “more than 60” M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles was loaded onto the ARC Integrity in the port of North Charleston (South Carolina) on January 25, 2023. On the night of January 26, the ARC Integrity moved from North Charleston to the US port of Dundalk in Maryland, from where it left for Europe on the evening of January 27.
The Ukrainian military should receive at least 109 M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicles from the US. Supply of the first 50 M2 Bradley vehicles to Ukraine was announced by the US Department of Defense on January 6, 2023. 59 more vehicles were included in a military assistance package on January 19. The US Department of Defense reported that Ukraine is provided with BMP M2A2 ODS.
In its turn, the Ukrainian military is already mastering the US-made vehicles. Training of Ukrainian crews on Bradleys began at the end of January in Germany. According yo the Pentagon, special accelerated courses were developed for Ukrainian servicemen in order to accelerate the training process. The courses will last for several weeks, and not months, as it was expected.
Also on February 13, German Defense Ministry spokeswoman Nadine Kluger claimed that the Bundeswehr began training Ukrainian soldiers on German Leopard 2 tanks. The training takes place at the training ground in Munster in Lower Saxony. It is planned to be completed by the end of March when the German tanks are expected to come to Ukraine.

Sink the 2nd batch over the Atlantic Ocean. One torpedo is enough. And then play dumb, like they did with NS1 and NS2, if they ask “-Russia, did you do it?” You answer: “-Of course not! How can you ask that?!!”
Russia has already destroyed 6,300 tanks/armor, what good is giving 100 – 200 more to Ukraine? This is crazy.
Bang for buck best war since gulf war 2….cost almost nothing and having nice results.
If U believe the 6300 number ur as dumb as fuck…i have a Bridge to sell and my Cousin is prince of zamuba, wanting to Share 70 Million with u, contact him at trustworthy Nigerian @ dutsch-dank.te.
Only dead shitskin is a good shitskin.
Sorry guys have been away a few months, fill me in, after bakhmut what have we Taken, kramstorks sloviansk? Did we reach the Dnipro yet? Odessa encircled maybe? Thanks in advance
1 Geranium-2 ($20,000) vs 1 Bradley ($5,000,000) Who wins?
It’s like the fag end days of World War 2 when the Germans threw into battle young inexperienced badly trained servicemen to die needlessly along with various allied troops who still had to defeat them. Tragic that we never learn. The only difference is that Germany fought to the end because the Allies insisted on unconditional surrender on a defeated foe. Meantime Ukraine even more bizarrely insists upon a rampant Russian to capitulate before negotiating. You couldn’t make it up.
Although these tanks will make absolutely no difference in the outcome of the war, this shows that NATO will continue to elongate the war and get more and more involved in the conflict. I have no doubt that NATO will soon begin to sneak in fighter jets onto the battlefield and possibly fly sorties from Poland, Romania etc. Things will escalate it seems more but the outcome will be the same. Russia has infinite options in case things get a bit out of hand. One thing is beyond a doubt, if NATO gives Ukraine missiles and Ukraine targets Crimea or Russia, then Russia will unleash fury in Ukraine, possibly blacking out the entire country, take Odessa and launch a northern invasion via Belarus. I think Russia has gone over all possible scenarios.
I look forward to seeing 60 burned out Bradleys. LOL.
180 by Igor konashenkov counting + Propaganda claims about russian pows and babies being Run over by bradleys + Nato Generals working on biolabs in bradleys and Ukrainian soldiers selling them on black Market.

Ivan flathead raptist talking…
Ruským vojskám sa treba trochu poponáhľať aby ich nezastihli pri Bachmut. Ten by sa mal stať už Ruským. S týmto tu si poradia potom na otvorenom priestranstve. Rusko sa po skončení ŠVO stane jednou z krajín, ktoré budú mať prebytok kvalitnej ocele.
Cannon fodder before reaching the front; as Russians will be gunning heavily anything coming in.
Count on it, with all those bounty rewards available to the happy hunters.
Surly the Russians know where these weapons come into Ukraine over the Polish border satellites can follow them all the way there be no defense for them when the are on railway cars in motion.
Your Kind repeating this line of urs for 12 months now….any explanation why it never happened?
Talking of the US and moving tanks, any news on the train derailment over in Ohio and what it unleashed? Western Media appears to be ignoring a very big story. They are more interested in Sam Smith’s latex outfit. I wonder if Sam Smith, was wearing same outfit he wore at the BRITS in the US, if they would have shot him down, believing he was some UFO?
This stupidity is proof that the border between Russia and the Eunuch Union is the river Elbe.
These have munnition that explodes above trenches or any obstacles the enemy might hide behind
