More than 110 models of Ukrainian and foreign-made military vehicles have been approved for use in the Armed Forces of Ukraine since March 2022, Ukraine's Defense Ministry said on June 8.

One third of the vehicles were reportedly domestically produced while the rest were made in over 20 countries, including the U.S., the U.K. Germany, Sweden, and Italy. Sixty samples of equipment were taken into service in 2024.

“Renewal and replenishment of the Armed Forces vehicle fleet ensures increased mobility and combat capability of the Ukrainian military, which is critical in the current situation,” the ministry said.

Ukrainian manufacturers supply armored cars, trucks, and electric motorcycles. Among the foreign-made equipment, Ukraine's army uses off-road vehicles, and heavy armored vehicles.

The country also plans to increase the production of missiles, arms, and other military equipment, with a particular focus on air defense, Ivan Havryliuk, first deputy defense minister, said.
