  1. That is a lot sooner than expected. This leaves little time for training the crews and maintenance troops. Unless, training has already been taking place before the announcement of the green light for delivery?

  2. I would hope that they’re already training the Ukrainian forces, ALAS we’re dealing with krauts so who the hell knows!!!!
