Pentagon: US will need over a year to deliver Abrams tanks to Ukraine – Reuters


According to her, the United States is now trying to find the fastest way to deliver tanks. “None of the options we are looking at are designed for weeks or two months, longer periods are involved,” he said. RIA News Wormouth.

There are shipping options that take less than a year and a half to two years, but the United States still needs to consider the pros and cons of each, she added.

For example, one of the options proposed by the head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, envisages the creation of tanks for Ukraine from scratch. However, the United States generally retrofits vehicles in service in the country and does not produce them from scratch.

Another option involves transferring tanks to Ukraine from countries to which Washington has already delivered them, which would help reduce delivery times. But the negative consequence of this decision could be the “destruction of relations with important allies” of the United States, concluded Wormouth.

Recall that the United States will transfer 31 M1 Abrams tanks to Ukraine in January, President Joe Biden announced in a special address devoted to military support for Kiev. The American leader acknowledged that their delivery to Ukraine would take time, but assured that the Americans would soon begin to train and train the crews of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
