Kiev Left With No Ammunition For German Gepards After Sweden Banned Supplies To Ukraine

Illustrative Image

Switzerland has banned Germany from supplying ammunition for the Gepard anti–aircraft tank, according to Die Zeit. Germany is eager to supply its tanks in Ukraine with ammunition, but the cartridges are made in Switzerland which refused to allow Berlin to supply the Armed Forces of Ukraine with these weapons.

The Swiss Ministry of Economy stated that the country cannot agree to a request for the transfer of military equipment of Swiss origin to the third parties involved in an international armed conflict due to the neutrality law.

As a result of the Sweden’s refusal, the batch of ammunition promised by Berlin for the Gepards will not get to Ukraine and Kiev will have to look for shells for very voracious anti-aircraft installations somewhere else. It is not an easy task as the 35x228mm ammunition for Oerlikon GDF 35mm automatic guns which are installed in the Gepard tanks is reportedly produced only by Switzerland.

The Gepard 1A2 has a firing range of up to 5 km, and an altitude of up to 4 km, the radar detects targets at a range of up to 18 km.

Most of the Gepard tanks transferred by the Germans to Ukraine were deployed on the front lines in the southern regions. According to the Kiev regime, they are allegedly used to protect the sea corridors and ships involved in the grain deal. In their turn, the General Staff of Ukraine claimed that German anti-aircraft guns are very usefull to fight Russian kamikaze UAVs Geranium-2. So far, not a single Russian UAV have targeted Ukrainian grain convoy in the Black Sea. However, dozens of military and energy infrastructure facilities in Ukraine, including in the southern Nikolaev and Odessa regions, have been successfully struck by Russian UAVs and cruise missiles. Kiev’s claims that the German tanks are used to protect civilian ships with grain are another lie aimed at pleasing the European population but which was revealed by the Ukrainian military as usually.

Perhaps the author of this article should go back to school and learn the difference between Switzerland and Sweden.

There is also a big difference between a “tank” and a “self-propelled anti-aircraft gun” which the Gepard (Cheetah) is. SouthFront needs to educate some of it’s writers or they will be as credible as those in the big propaganda/opinion/entertainment media companies that dominate the US and Europe.

Thats right. Tanks has a house, which can turn around the canon and the canon can go from horisontal to almost vertical.

Something like that.

Its not like that. It decided ny their parlament. Here Switzerland has been neutral, so it sell to delf defence only.

That by the way partly go to Sweden being semi neutral as well.

So is it Sweden or Switzerland that is refusing to supply Ukraine with ammunition?

@Inga from Sweden This here seems to be the thread were there are at least some comments left to read. In another one on this board they deleted 53 of 56 comments, so that shows how the true sentiment of the population and viewers is, if SF feels forced to delete 90+ percent of all comments. Yes very funny from 56 comments in that thread only 3 are left (4 including mine- so far). So much for independent speech and free thoughts in Russia. That is the best proof on how much Russia has turned away from being a communist dictatorship, and has become a “free nation”. Hahah. So here we have also the answer why most of the former SSR states don t want to be under russian rule again and align themselves with the west. (as even though there too is extraordinary fraud, censorship and else in the West, at least they are not doing it so obvious and stupidly like the soviets do, and of course living standard is higher in the West, but the communist agents in all the western blocks USA,Canada, EU, Australia etc. are doing their best to bring the living standard down there too.)

Btw. I have also an answer for commentor Marshall Antonescu (who says one should not speak against the jews because ” not all of them are evil ,and there are real and fake jews among them as well”):

My answer:

Then you do not understand the problem in its depth. If there are 100 human cells, and you know that one particular of these 100 cells has an extremly high propability of being a deadly cancer cell, and you are forced to implant one of the 100 mentioned cells into your body, then which of the 100 cells will you choose ? I tell you ! If you are not an idiot, you at least will not choose the one cell, which you already know is very likely a cancer cell. And that’s the same with the jew problem. For sure not all jews are satanically evil, but we already know this absolute evil on earth merely stems from them. So in all cases one will just by logic and natural survival instinct refuse to have anything to do with these creatures at all. Same as – like demonstrated in my example – one will for pure logic reasons not choose the cell which has a high propability of being a deadly cancer cell.

So you mentioning that “not all jews are evil” doesn t change a damn thing. As the result doesn t changes. If one strikes you with a hammer, but not all the hammer blows were deadly but only 10 of the 14 strikes the killer did, then again the result stays the same. You are dead. And the killer stays a killer. That not all his hammer-blows to your head were deadly, doesn t make him become a “nice guy” or should make mankind refrain from putting him on trial and into jail afterwards, or better shoot him on sight. Same goes for the jews. Even if not all of them are highgrade evil satanists, no one can for sure separate the evil ones from the none evil ones, as the evil ones always pose as harmless, peaceful and none-dangerous when in fact they are just camouflaging their real intentions. Which leaves mankind (if it wants to survive) no choice but treat all of them as enemy forces and throw all of them out.

The former german Reichfuehrer SS, Mr. Himmler, did mention this problem already in one of his speeches telling in one sentence: Quote ” ..and then they arrive, all the decent 80 mio germans, every single one of them has his decent jew beside him, and says: “I know, all the other jews are pigs, but here, the one I found, that’s a decent one”. (So this means, that everybody always thinks to have found among the jews the one or two decent ones, wherefore in fact the evil ones are always claiming to be the “single good an decent one” as that is the trick these parasites always use to sneak into ones society and then destroy everything from within, what is why one should never allow any of them to come in, but it is stricty necessarily for ones own survival and the survival of every free and souveran nation, who wants to stay that way, to radically kick ALL OF THEM out, and forbid them to come back. They are like a deadly virus, they are parasites who always morph, change their names, their appearance in order to confuse their victims, and if one does not realize this and not fights them mercilessy from the very beginning, the result will be that the parasite gets in, destroys your body ( nation ) and will win, and you will be dead.

Its not Your fault Stalin has erased Your history books and used them for smoking.

The Kievan Russian loose state was founded and driven by well known vikings in big towns such as Starja ladoga, Nogorod, Kiev, Moskva and Smolensk.

Before that it was about 3 states driven by vikings having a better logistics and supply lines then the Russian military forces of today.

None blamed them for that.

Much later Vitus Bering helped Russia by the Tzars as well as the last Tzarin actualy was Danish.

“Iranian drones are a crude copy of American and Israeli ones, are mostly for show and Ukraine successfully destroys all of them even with small arms and cans of gherkin . But Gepard is the only weapon capable of defending Ukraine against the Iranian drones, so the Mullah regime paid the Swiss $billions and gave them some islands in the Persian Gulf to motivate them enough so Swiss or Sweden don’t send ammunition and Mullahs avoid this humiliation for internal propaganda reasons.”

The Swiss see the writing on the wall. Russia has already won and is destined alongside China to be the new economic superpower. Western Europe is collapsing and winter is approaching. If the Swiss do what they historically do best which is stay out of other countries affairs, then the Swiss will survive although their power will be greatly diminished since Switzerland has always been a banking safe haven for the corrupt western ZIonazis. SInce the Zionazi empire is coming to an end the Swiss now will begin to try to appease both sides a la Turkiye. I’ve had Swiss co-workers and I must admit I have always been impressed with their demeanor and very high level of intelligence. The Swiss are very capable and unlike Poland, Germany, the UK, their government is still for the most part looking out for the interest of their people. By the way quick fact the Swiss citizens are the most armed in the world, even more than the US citizens. There are weapons caches scattered throughout the country. The Swiss citizens enjoy the most freedom in all of western Europe.
