Former commander: "Tank supplies will be crucial to the war" - Weapons expert explains why the Leopard 2 is so important right now

Mr de Bretton-Gordon, as commander of the British Army's First Royal Tank Regiment, you used to drive the Challenger 2 yourself. Now the British want to deliver 14 of these tanks to the Ukraine, but in Berlin the German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is still hesitant about releasing the Leopard 2 deliveries from Poland and Finland. What can Challenger 2 and its German equivalent, the Leopard 2, do? And why does Ukraine need them so badly right now? I've spent thousands of hours in the Challenger 2 and its predecessor, the Challenger 1. And I can tell you, the new generation of main battle tanks is very much superior to their predecessors. This also applies to the Leopard 2.
