Leopard 2 Tanks: Armored Beasts Berlin Decides to Send to Ukraine

Germany has confirmed its intention to deliver 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. The announcement came after weeks of heated debates between Berlin and its NATO colleagues over tank supplies to Kiev.
According to German government, other European partners will also provide Kiev with Leopard 2 tanks.
Developed in the 1970s, these 62-ton armored “beasts” boast a thick composite armor and are armed with a Rheinmetal-built Rh-120 120 mm smoothbore gun and a pair of 7.62mm machine guns. However, it seems rather unlikely that these weapons, however powerful they may be, would prove to be some sort of a game changer in the Ukrainian conflict.
