Ukraine has received 30 Gepard self-propelled anti-aircraft guns from Germany since Russia started its full-scale invasion in February, German Embassy in Ukraine said on Nov. 19.
“Gepard has become an effective weapon against Iranian Shahed-136 drones. It is used to protect Ukrainian critical infrastructure,” the embassy tweeted.
There hasn't been a separate confirmation of this by the Ukrainian armed forces.
The German government said in early November it had provided 30 Dingo armored vehicles, missiles for IRIS-T air defense systems previously provided to Ukraine, four more anti-drone sensors and jammers, five heavy-duty M1070 Oshkosh semi-trailers, and one forklift.
On Oct. 25, German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier said his country would provide Ukraine with two additional MARS II multiple-launch rocket systems and four howitzers.
At the same time, Germany has been refusing to provide Ukraine with battle tanks that Ukrainian officials have repeatedly asked for.
