Poland may transfer another 232 tanks to Ukraine

Poland is ready to transfer to Ukraine its entire fleet of PT-91 Twardy tanks, of which there are 232 units in the country.

This is reported by the Visegrad 24 edition, citing military experts.  

Instead of delivered tanks, the United States may transfer another batch of Abrams M1A2 to Poland.

It should be noted that in April, Poland has already  transferred to Ukraine more than 240 T-72M1R tanks, which have been modernized and equipped with night vision sights and other modern means of observation, new radio stations and navigation devices.  

The PT-91 Twardy is also a Polish version of the upgraded T-72s that have been mass-produced since 1995. They were equipped with French fire control systems, panoramic sights, laser guidance systems, a modernized Slovak-made cannon and other improvements.

Recall, on July 12, Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak held talks in Kyiv with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. After them, Zelensky said that Blashchak “brought to Ukraine” a new batch of AHS Krab self-propelled 155-mm howitzers, which have been delivered to our country since the end of May (then the first 18 self-propelled guns arrived). In June,  a contract was signed for the supply of another 60 machines of this type.
