Jan 13, 2023

The French Defence Ministry has outlined a deadline for the transfer of AMX-10RC light wheeled tanks to Ukraine. They hope to deliver them within two months.

This was reported by Reuters with reference to French Defense Minister Sebastien Lecornu.

"France is hoping to deliver AMX 10-RC light combat tanks to Ukraine in two months' time," the minister said.

According to the outlet, Lecornu said so following a telephone conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart Oleksiy Reznikov yesterday.

As a reminder, on January 4, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the intention of Paris to transfer light wheeled tanks AMX-10 RC to Kyiv to fight against Russian aggression.

As the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry later noted, the French president's decision on these supplies was revolutionary.
