Thus, the Armed Forces of Ukraine received a batch of ammunition for the Gepard anti-aircraft tank. They have just been produced in Germany.
This was reported by the German Ministry of Defense.
"The war in Ukraine reminds us almost every day that the defense of our country depends on air defense and sufficient ammunition. With the resumption of ammunition production, we are concentrating on these two most important aspects," Defense Minister Boris Pistorius said.
He stressed that Germany will continue to support Ukraine in the areas that are our strengths: artillery, ammunition and ground-based air defence."
In February 2023, the German Defense Minister announced that Rheinmetall AG in Germany would receive appropriate ammunition from Rheinmetall AG. The contract for 168 million euros includes the supply of a total of 300 thousand shells.
