I like this too.
Obviously it hasn't sunk yet, but still funny.

The German defense industry is offering Marder IFV and PzH-2000 ACS to Ukraine

Rheinmetall, a German manufacturer of military equipment, offers Ukraine to purchase Marder infantry fighting vehicles.

BILD informs about it.

According to the journalists, the concern intends to build 35 units of equipment for the needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces by the end of 2022.

Another German arms manufacturer, Krauss-Maffei Wegmann, is offering Ukraine an agreement to supply 100 self-propelled 155-mm PzH 2000 ACS.

Welt am Sonntag informs about this.

The offer was submitted to the German government for approval.

The first new ACS might be delivered no earlier than in 30 months. That is, the first deliveries should be expected in the second half of 2024. And the entire contract will be fulfilled in 2027.

These photos of "Pro-Russian" troops don't look defeated. This in the battles of Mariupol.

There is supposedly a good chance of Greece receiving 100s of Marders (among a proposal for other things like setting up a line for Leo2 in Greece, but that's another topic). I hope this offering doesn't negatively affect that.

The PZh-2000 sale is super weird though. Time will tell.

I kept hearing about a Marder sale since I was in high school. It starts to become a meme by now.

We were supposed to get them 15-20 years ago, but eventually it didn't go ahead as people in power dissed them as too old. Hilarious if you think about it since we still have M113. A bit later we were supposed to go ahead with the BMP-3, which (thankfully?) didn't go ahead either. (funnily enough the unit is available in the Greek OOB here, same as the SU-35 I think, they were added years ago when it looked like there was a good potential for them).
The irony is there is a better chance we get the Marders now than then. That's life (and stupidity).
Time will tell.

Me and my big mouth!


I kid, I kid, thank you. I wasn't using them for years now. Though when I used to, they were VERY helpful (the BMP-3).
