Poland is soon to transfer 60 PT-91 Twardy tanks to Ukraine, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Feb. 24.
Speaking during a joint press conference with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy in Kyiv, Morawiecki said the tanks would be delivered to Ukraine “within a few days,” as reported by Polish news agency PAP.
PT-91 Twardy is a Polish tank designed on the basis of the T-72M1 tank. It has its own DRAWA fire control system and ERAWA dynamic protection.
Earlier on Feb. 24, Morawiecki said that Poland had transferred the first four German-made Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine, and that more would follow.
According to the Bloomberg news agency, Poland intends to transfer 14 Leopard 2 battle tanks to Ukraine.
Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Błaszczak earlier announced that the first Leopard 2 tanks had already arrived in Ukraine.
