Hundreds of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles and thousands of missiles: What weapons the West gave to Ukraine

What weapons Ukraine received from the allies during the full-scale war

What weapons Ukraine received from the allies during the full-scale war

The supply of weapons has been the first priority for Ukrainian diplomacy since the full-scale Russian invasion. This is why obtaining heavy artillery, ATGMs, armored vehicles, tanks, and other weapons that help Ukraine protect itself and counterattack can be considered Kyiv’s major diplomatic achievement.

Ukraine received advanced French CAESAR artillery systems, U.S.-made HIMARS rocket artillery systems, German-made Gepard anti-aircraft guns, and 150 Leopard tanks from nine Western countries. Ukrainian soldiers have also begun training on U.S.-made M1 Abrams battle tanks.

Among advanced weapons, Ukraine was also given Italian Melara Mod howitzers, Finnish KRH 92 heavy 120-mm mortars, Swedish Bofors L70 anti-aircraft guns, and British Spartan armored personnel carriers. Finally, the formation of the fighter jet coalition at the G7 summit in Japan became the pinnacle, when Western allies officially agreed to supply F16 fighter jets to Kyiv. Ukrainian pilots have already begun training to fly them.
