With the great news that #Poland will supply a company of #Leopard2 Main Battle Tanks & the #UK set to provide #Challenger2 #MBTs, the spotlight is now trained firmly on Berlin. Will #Germany join the coalition to give #Ukraine the tanks -#Kampfpanzer!- it needs?🧵1/
Happily, that looks increasingly likely.
SPD Chancellor #Scholz' coalition partners the Greens & FDP are insisting that #Germany take part & rumours of a no-confidence vote ultimatum are swirling.
@ABaerbock's visit to Kharkiv with @DmytroKuleba & @Makeiev was no coincidence 2/
But, as we know, #Scholz & co have a history of giving reasons not to deliver only for those to evaporate into excuses. @kuleba noted this on Germany's main TV news show - 'first they say no, vigorously defend their decision, only to finally say yes'

The last #Gepards will go to 🇺🇦 #Ukraine.🧵
The Air Defence System #Gepard 1A2 has proven itself excellently against the #threats from the air in the Ukraine, as I have emphasized in a continuous loop over the last 4 years. Everything we asked the system to do was fulfilled.

The #Gepard is no longer "threat appropriate." To this day it is a mystery to me how they came to this conclusion. The integration into modern Air Defence Networks is given with version 1A2. The Siemens MPDR12 search radar could not be supressed by ECR Tornados during tests. 2/
This makes the 1A2 difficult to fight against in 🇺🇦. The EECM are sufficient against jammers. The given anti-aircraft combat tactics makes the Radar difficult to detect. Due to add. tactical measures, the enemy can't assess where a #Gepard is just clearing up ready for battle 3/ Image
