Spain To Supply Ukraine With Leopard Tanks, Aspide Anti-Aircraft Missiles – Report

Spain will supply Ukraine with Leopard battel tanks and Aspide anti-aircraft missiles, El Pais reported on June 5, citing Spanish government sources.

The Spanish newspaper didn’t provide any details on the battle tanks Spain wants to supply to Ukraine. The tanks likely be of the older German-made Leopard 2A4. At least 108 tanks of this version are currently in severance with the Spanish military.

The tanks are less capable then the Leopard 2E, a version that was especially designed for Spain and is made in the country by General Dynamics Santa Bárbara Sistemas.

According to El Pais, Spain will also essential training to the Ukrainian military in how to use the tanks. The first phase of the training will take place in Latvia, where the Spain has deployed 500 soldiers within the framework of NATO’s Enhanced Advanced Presence operation. However, the second phase could take place in Spain.

The Spanish Ministry of Defense is also finalizing the delivery of Aspide short-range anti-aircraft missiles to Ukraine, which the Spanish military recently placed out of service.

The Italian-made Aspide anti-aircraft missile, which was developed in the 1970s by the now defunct Selenia, have a range of 20 kilometers. A newer version, the Aspide 2000, which has a range of 25 kilometer was bought by Spain in the late 1990s to arm the Spada 2000 air-defense system.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez reportedly made the offer to step up military supplies to Ukraine to President Volodymyr Zelenskiy during his visit to the country on April 21. However, the complexity of the operation led to some delays.

Spain has supplied loads of weapons, ammunition and military equipment to Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian special military operation there, including more than a thousand C90-CR and Alcotán-100 anti-tank weapons. Like the rest of Kiev’s Western allies, Madrid hopes that its military support will prolong the war and in return weaken Moscow.

It will achieve little to fuck all in all honesty though. At this point Ukraine has a far worst issue than hardware, they have absolutely zero leadership on the fields, nor in the offices.

jens holm

I see none of that. If ukras had no good local leadership, they had lost long time ago.

It is true they do have lacks of officers. It because they have taken in many from the reserves.

The Ukra defence now is organized in the Nato way. By that all small leaders areducated as opportunists. Thye dont has to ask.

By that they compensate for the Leadership, which in Russia even kill Generals.

Poles are sending ukraine pads for their periods? Very appropriate. Maybe should have packed a few tampons as well for the ukie soldiers with the heavy flow.

That’s bad news! What are poles gonna use for their soldier’s periods? They need those man pads!!!!!!

Its normal procedure for civilized behaving. We also send some bigger for male mouths. Some of them use recycled diapers for their own eyes only.

I am in the Ramses world too. We are in your world. But You are not in Ours. You are raised not to know.

jens holm

You only get biased information of the wors kind.

Wiki is talked down even its the best You can get. Facebook is forbidden in Russia. So many sources for information are gone.

When we see people here using WESTERN MEDIAS its the old days. It makes us sick.

We actually has direct contact with Ukraine every day by mobil phones and androids. hasts by Our more then 30.000 refugees and their friends and families.

This is not about CNN, Washington Post, BBC or TV2 news.

We also has many sober journalists in Ukraine. They are not biased by Ukrainians or Russian propaganda. They can add and subtract and do.

SM Sparviero

Inavoidable that Leopards would be sent in Ukraine. Damned stupid NATO slaves, anything will be done to enter in WWIII.

Spain is another NATO whore without brain.

If all of the NATO nations are out of arms and ammo, does this not leave them all vulnerable to terrorists, like those in the black dinghies, coming from the sea?

The Spanish police were unable to eliminate a gang of brainless Basques. as weapons from the Ukrainian black market arrive at the Spanish and French Islamists we are going to laugh…

Антон

Good idea, need to send some trophies taken from ukros to basques, to Catalonia (where is Puchdemon now?), to IRA and to muslim brotherhood of France of course, they await their “Stingers” and NLAWs. May be People republic of Scotland will rise soon, who knows? I’m sarcastic and joking, but every joke has a part of truth.

Isn’t Vladolf the biggest terrorist of them all, the mafia kingpin, oppression of civilians in his home country etc?

jens holm

Number one is we are not.

Number to is number one enemy seeemes to be the ones being in Ukraine. They are usingwhat they have. By that they cant come here.

Actually Russia seemes only to be able to come here on bicycle bringing fishing gearfor supply.

As a child on sundays I got money. I could choose between and icecream or a sodapop. There was not for both of them.

jens holm

Gneaus stapo is right. We handle terrorisme by policework and try to be very updated. The biggest job is to avoid people being fanatics of that kind.

We do it by finding the vulnerable ones in their inviroment. We make them go to school, educate and give them hopes for something else.

But we are armed hard against it too. Terrorists are few. We do have small special units against that.

After ISIS we also are more protected.

Kiev is one of ancient capitals of Russia when it was called Rus’. So this case is very different from Dresden. Need to bomb Fashington instead, but…

Mr Putin has just announced if any heavy long range weapons are delivered to Ukraine then quote- ” we will hit targets we have not hit previously ” meaning the gloves will be taken off and Ukraine hit hard.

It is probably time to discuss the separation of the Russian federation, it hasn’t worked in any interesting manner, so it is probably better to take over the direction of it. Split it in ten pieces and control it from various other nations. Best for everybody.

jens holm

Thats their own decission. Both the central and decentral election and administration is very ineffective. By that the production is in the old days and corrupt as well.

You can have both but almost none is impossible.

If they really do downin economy some United States of Russia becomes relevant. Romans did that in the end of their rule and had succes before it collapsed. Bu they did delay it very well.

Meaning the same target won’t be hit twice. Politicianist speech that says nothing. Empty words from a mentally paralized midget.

And the version -model of the Leopard 2 tanks are ? Various versions and updates –also when tested in the USA the American government opted for the Abrams tank.

Gneaus stapo

Leo 2 and Abrams both originated from German/ American cooperation project…at the end each country’s weapon Industrial complex made cooperation fail and USA/ Germany produced their own tanks,…not really question, which tank was/ is better.

But that Abrams uses the leo’s gun, should be hind, which is really the best

I’m seeing India reselling sanctioned oil to USA and EU for an even bigger profit and telling Europe to mind their business. I’m seeing Africa taking to the streets with Russian flags in support of the denazification operation. I’m seeing Mexico starting to tell the US what they really think about having the membership of OAS dictated upon them. I’m seeing Chinese politicians trolling US/EU policy dotards openly on Twitter. We already know what every self respecting citizen from the Middle East thinks about this affair. The fraud is coming to an end, get on board or get left behind.

Africans with flags, seriously? It’s not the same countries with a dictator bribing leadership and who handing out red wimples to the population when he hands out the rations of food to the poverty stricken looted population, we are talking about now?

Mexico, the transit country from middle America to USA, they have complains and doesn’t do their part.

The Middle East? I know more about them than you probably. The don’t care at all about Russians, they like to trick Russians since they are so easily fooled and pleased since nobody else likes Russia’s bid ideas of themselves.

Thank you for your message.

About India selling oil, I have expected that to happen. In that case Russia at least get less for their oil. That overpopulated India, who is dependent on Russia’s military equipment, go for the slum option doesn’t surprise. It’ll be more interesting to see what Pakistan and Bangladesh is doing.

Zero chance and leadership even from US and NATOSTAN; as Kissinger even to them to make peace ✌️. Lol, honestly who believes these Western secret societies aren’t behind this mess.

ISIS members are rowing our golden bathtubs.

I see no secrets in this where I live.

Its very easy: Ukraine is an own independent country for 30 years and should remain so. It wasnt until Maidan.

Here the 82,2% of the population said, that the Ukrainians capitolwas not Moskva.

Ukraine is a typical USSR mal function construction. So its invaded by them for corrections. If it wasnt for all the dead and destructions I would laugh.

O look forward to Russian cloning mammuts. They probatly will have 5 legs and batteries.

Typical propgaganda version. The article compare with the newer Leopards. Is that relevant.

It makes more sense to compare with the Russian T-series.

Some better air protection seemes very relevant.

Tanks without air-cover are basically worthless, no matter what type of tank it is. The SAM’s will be destroyed like the majority of the AFU’s already have been.

Russia appreciates more targets to better train their various troops and divisions. They thank the EVIL EMPIRE US and Pooland for their help in providing targets this past weekend. They await the Spain presents…to go the same way.
