German defense group Rheinmetall may transfer a large amount of ammunition for Leopard tanks that will be sent to Ukraine.
This was reported by RBC-Ukraine, citing the Rheinische Post.
It is noted that the concern has significantly increased its capacity, especially in the large caliber sector.
"We have invested and will continue to do so by strengthening production and hiring additional personnel. We are doing everything possible to support Ukraine, NATO and the German government," Rheinmetall said.
It should be noted thanks to the increased capacity, the company is able to meet the anticipated growth in demand from the Bundeswehr and the armed forces for other Leopard tanks.
Earlier, it was reported that Rheinmetall could deliver 139 Leopard type 1 and 2 combat tanks to Ukraine, if necessary.
