wait a minute….
>ItalyHonestly shocked they're actually doing something. They were the real cowards for the longest time while everyone was bitching about France and Germany
>>56906631Italy is poor as shit in comparison and doesn't have old soviet equipment to give.
Germany, the UK and the US have flopped their dicks out onto the table. Italy and France seem like they have something to hide not sending MBTs to Ukraine. South Korea might have to simple as a marketing sample.
>>56906593>italyOh God please don't give the Ukranians the Ariete. What the fuck did they do to deserve that?
>>56906631They have been sending stuff they just don't advertise it as much.
>>56906593sad thing is, no one really cared about the UK. Everyone was just waiting for either Germany or the US to make the move to really set things in motion.
>>56906668Also Meloni is an anomaly in the Italian populist movement as she is not pro-Russia like the rest.
>>56906593Did he make a defenestration joke?
>>56906593>UK sending 14 challengers>EU(all combined) sending 88 LeopardsWhat exactly did Western leaders mean by this
>>56906688The UK set things to motion by sending the tanks. It basically raised more awareness about the idea of sending modern MBTs.
>>56906704>>EU(all combined) sending 88 LeopardsIs this even confirmed yet? In fact has anyone other than Germany and Poland confirmed they're giving Leopards?
>>56906688Retarded take, if not for the UK pushing open the door the rest wouldn't have followed. They, with the US were the first to dump AT days prior to the Invasion too.
>>56906631Then you're a retard. Italy sent truckloads of stuff to Ukraine, along with France, Germany and the UK.
>>56906631>Honestly shocked they're actually doing somethingwutThey sent a shit ton of armament, especially PzH2000's and M109's of their own variant.>pic related is in Ukraine
>>56906631The right wing government finally started to deliver once they won and got their shit figured out
>>56906668>Poor as shitLMAO
>>56906699She's not a populist.
>>56906699Not that I'm versed in Italian politics but I thought the whole point of her campaign was that she was pro-Italy and nothing more.
>>56906725god the PzH2000 is so fucking hot
>>56906631The leader of their new government has very close ties with the Polish PiS party. If she doesn't wanna piss them off she has to send stuff
>>56906675i don't doubt France and Italy would send theirs too, but currently, setting up the logisitcal chain for Leo and M1 is just far more efficient considering the numbers that are around. Same thing for Chally 2, does the low number of units send warrant the logistical burden.
>>56906734Don't tell themThey're not supposed to know we're not poor, just terrible with moneyAnyway, do we have any more info on this? Are we actually sending Arietes, or did he just include Italy without thinking too much about it?
>>56906721Norway, Finland are confirmedSpain, Portugal, Netherlands said they're available
>>56906593It's pretty funny that the UK basically bullied Germany into sending tanks via Poland lol perfidious anglo strikes again
>>56906787How many from Norway and Finland?
>>56906686I mean, if it's that bad, KhKBM will have an opportunity to dissect it and learn how not to build a tank
>>56906791>try to go against the almighty anglos>lose in embarassing fashionSad! Many such casesSay what you will about Poland but at least they know how to play the game.
>>56906776If you want close ties with Poland within the EU you can't be pro russia like most other right wing populists in europe. What's so hard for you to understand here lil retard?
>>56906755she's got way more depth than a trump carbon copy
>>56906783The Chally 2 was sent to basically stop everyone from bitching out, no EU country had to power to peer pressure Germany into giving the export licenses, once the bongs pushed those things through it was simple, Olaf sent the Leopards and allowed others to do the same or faced political suicide.
>>569067978 from NorwayNot sure for Finland
>>56906783Ariete would basically have very little logistical footprintTransmission, tracks and gun are basically in common with Leopards>>56906784no confirmation yet, and with how secretive the italian government has been with the content of its aid packages I doubt we’ll have any in the immediate future>>56906798at least it’s better than slav tanks in terms of awareness, battlefield management and FCS
>>56906827That's still a long way off from 88 then
>>56906787Spain is quite likely to send their 2A4's, at least a bunch. They always wanted to support Ukraine but it was either Switzerland or Germany stopping their tracks.
>>56906809I'd put money on it that the UK and Poland (possibly others) planned it out perfectly and that the faggots in Germany never intended to send a single MBT until backed into a corner. Has Denmark said they are sending any? They were also one of the originals to help in Febuary.
>>56906783None of the repair or maintnence will be done in Ukraine anyway. Ukraine'll just ship broken tanks back to Poland and get freshly overhauled ones back. There's potentially a benefit to vehicles coming from so many countries in that there's so much training capacity for Ukraine to tap into. E.g. if Italy starts sending tanks then the crews can be trained in Italy which Italy is set up to do, and the tanks can be maintained in Poland (or even Italy itself) by Italian logistics and maintnence crews, all of this otherwise would contribute nothing to this war.p.s. god help the trainers and crew trying to communicate probably each in broken English, but they'll make so I'm sure
>>56906699she want to make this country a presidential system (would solve a lot of problems with the constant instability)
>>56906668>Italy is poor as shitJust a bit richer than Russia
>>56906848A4s might need to be upgraded first so as to not embarrass Rheinmetall which would be a bottleneck.
>>56906853Most of Denmarks running leos are in Estonia right now.
>>56906843>slav tanksThere arr only Ukrainian and russian tanks. russian and their derivatives are shit, yes. Ukrainian, however, weren't designed by morons
>>56906783>muh logistical chainThe US and Bongs can logisticaly support any piece of there equipment anywhere anytime, they have large stocks in Germany/Poland and are well orchestrated in putting it into practice. Germany on the other hand has never deployed any sizeable Leopard force ever and is well known for shocking maintainence and missing basic Nato standards. This can be said for alot of the Leopard users, it will be interesting to see how it comes together.
>>56906847Oh I misread the original articles. Germany has committed to sending up to 2 battalions of Leopard 2s, or 88 tanks if they're using German battalion size. 62 if they're using Ukrainian battalion size.Just a funny number really, I laughed when I read this.
>>56906706>>56906722It is great the UK was the first to state it will supply 14 real mbts, but Ukraine needs hundreds maybe thousands of units. And only Leopards and M1s exist in those numbers.
>>56906947>Up to 88 tanks>Doesn't say when I'd expect that by 2030 the earliest
>>56906704>West sending 100ish tanksI reckon they fake some of the numbers and just have Ukraine not show it all in one place. The US could have sent twice as many HIMARS and Russia would have no idea. Even if they did they'd lie about it because it would frighten the mobiks.
>>56906960Yes that was the idea all along and both those posts pointed that out, are you retarded or something?
>>56906947So Germany is talking about sending their first 14/88 tanks? Curious
>>56906993Hopefully Ukraine continues the meme and sends them to Azov
>>56906993>>56907009Its meme magic numerology to counter the Russian casting of 2/2/22
>>56906947>>56906993>>56907005No it's incorrect >In a statement, the German government said it would initially provide Ukraine with one company of Leopard 2 A6 tanks, which comprises 14 vehicles, from its own stocks. The goal is for Germany and its allies to provide Ukraine with a total of two battalions, or 88 tanks.>The goal is for Germany and its allies to provide Ukraine with a total of two battalions, or 88 tanks.>Germany and its alliesGermany will have to cannibalise half its fleet to be able to get 88 working tanks, even if it managed that it would be left without any for itself.
>>56906688The UK allowed Germany to be cuckshamed into allowing Leopard 2 transfers from other nations before going all in themselves.
>>56907068>14/88I think you're missing the point of those posts anon
>>56907068So the OP >>56906704 was mostly correct
>>56906593now double hold down for a minutewhy is Spain of all countries giving out so many tanks?
>>56906981are you retarded for not understanding 14 Challengers is not a number that is gonna make a difference on the battlefield or on global political level.
>>56907095What the fuck does Spain need tanks for, it's not like the Moors are coming back
I wonder how will shills spin that Russians are losing to Ukrainians when whole West is sending them all they have on in order to stop Russia. Russian allies didn't even entered game.
>14/88 leopards>12 challengers>31 abrams>90 t-72s at ramstein>maybe some leclercs and arieteSo apprximately 5 battalions all together, and heil Hitler.
>>56907095Must be those trash heaps they have sitting around that they already wanted to send last year.Supposedly they are in such a terrible state that nobody wanted to buy them earlier.
>>56907109didnt you niggers beg iran for some flying toasters and artillery shells from north korea
>>56907109>Russian alliesMay I see them?
>>56907095because who will invade spain till they source the replacements honestly?
>>56907109>westerners start sending offensive gear instead of defensive>this mean ukraine is losing
>>56907120I'm not with Russians or West but it's blatantly obvious that this is ww3 and West will lose it since most of their population is addicted to nigger porn and tiktok
>>56907139>most of their population is addicted to nigger porn and tiktok4chan has completely rotted your brain.
>>56907135Yea this means ukraine is pretty much done
>>56907109>all they havepfffffff
>>56907095I expect that they aren't too concerned about France or Morocco attempting to anschluss them
>>56907150Don't get me even started about literal shitskins in those countries which are literal sleeper cells, the fuck did euros accepted military aged men from war torn countries for? They won't fight for euroshitters
>>56907161Why don't they send all they have in order to defeat Russia? Seems like really bad strategy to send parts of equipments. Why not send it all and defeat Russia?
>>56906892So poor as shit
>>56907181how do you manage to live with being this retarded
>>56907181Because russia is not important enough for it
>>56906848>They always wanted to support Ukraine but it was either Switzerland or Germany stopping their tracks.Spain was stopped by spain not having any to send because their mothballed tanks weren't ready for service.They may or may not have fixed that by now.
>>56907181Nice try, Xi.
>>56907184>8th richest country in the world by GDP>poor as shit
>>56907192>>56907188Now that's what I call cope. Step up your game shills
>>56906853>Germany never intended to send a single MBT until backed into a cornerReminder that Scholz had 2 demands to send MBTs and buckbroke Biden into fulfilling one while forging a coalition to send fulfill the other.>inb4 some butthurt retard pretending 100 Leos just came out of nowhere and Germany wasn't involved in the logistical planning they're the only essential country for.
>>56906821for this year maybe, but I bet if the Spaniards would've asked the Germans to send their Leos, the Germans would've caved in. Too bad those were in deep storage and in absolutely desastrous state
>>56906821Olaf sent Leos once the conditions he demanded months ago were met, neither sooner nor later.>>56907234The chancellor doesn't make the decision on who gets to reexport german arms and has been outnumbered for months.Spain didn't ask because it had nothing to send.
>>56907181Agreed, something similar happened to me once>guy breaks into my house>think "it'd be stupid to just shoot him enough to kill him. I should use every single round i have just to be sure">use 360 shells worth of buckshot>realize he'll kill me if I don't use everything I've got>burglar's already lifeless body is pumped full of 1200 5.56 rounds, 2400 9mm rounds, 1000 10mm rounds, and 700 7.62 rounds
>>56907266Kek I bet you thought it sounded smart and funny you shill bitch.
>>56907251yes? I said Spain would've asked the Germans, not the Chancellor. Also they rescinded their intent after checking the deep storage tanks, being in shit condition
>>56907095Iberians would've stayed out of it if russian autists could help themselves and not namedrop Lisbon every time they listed their potential conquests.
>>56907439Russian intelligence was also involved in the letter bombs in Madrid apparently.
>>56906993If this was, in any way, deliberate. I fully retract half the things I've said about what pussies Germany are.
>>56906688No one really cared about Germany aside from the being able to block exports. They are giving all of 14 old tanks. US leaning on them and offering to give 31 M1s, even though the money would be better spent elsewhere, seems to have been what did it.But now the bandwagon has begun. If Italy sends tanks I think it is likely they get the Leclercs at some point too. Next meeting of the defense chiefs is on aviation and we've already seen countries breach offering the F-16 so I think that will be the next step, especially since pilots are trained. Falcons and Strike Eagles make sense, especially with the US already having been moving JDAMs in there and Patriot Missiles up to defend assets.Ukraine won't get the 300 tanks it needs, but it might get 100+. Air assets will be huge if the goal is a rapid spring offensive, although they'll probably eat a substantial number of losses that could be avoided by giving them the F-35 and long range missiles to deal with air defenses, so that F-16s and F-15s can start pounding targets in coordination with maneuver warfare offensives.Of course, the other option, which NATO lacks the production infrastructure to really do well but which would be less escalatory, would be to give them more mortars and howitzers, and not 50-60, but hundreds and tens of thousands of shells, enough that Ukraine finally outguns Russia, and just let them batter Russia into the ground.The problem with the low tech solutions is that it means way more damage to infrastructure and more Russian deaths too, which light destabilize Russia.A Russian civil war is not good for Ukraine, they will inevitably be drawn in like they were the last one and with loose cannon factions a NATO confrontation over the Baltic borders is more likely.Not to mention China annexing the Far East is no good long term, while a democratic Russia, and EU member bordering China, would be excellent.
>>56906787>NetherlandsThey don't have any, they said they'd buy some for the occasion. >>5690709553 potential, will likely be a lot less.Either that or when they found out a couple months ago that all their stored tanks couldn't be sent because none of them were anywhere near ready for service they put in a massive amount of work to get a small fleet of mothballed tanks ready again.Though we probably would have heard of that.
>>56907494lol, china is happy to soft annex sibera by forcing russia into unfavorable contracts while they are sanctioned and flooding it with ethnic han. they are ike a 4th of the population already.only way china hard annexes siberia is if a democratic reformer takes over after putinthey will likely heavily back their own horse for successor and russia will be like another north korea
>>56907494>US leaning on them and offering to give 31 M1s, even though the money would be better spent elsewhereDo you really expect anybody to keep reading your reddit spaced post when you couldn't make it 2 sentences without revealing that you're a shill?
>>56906593>melonilmao what kind of name is that? does he have massive melons?
>>56907301NtA but it sufficesSeethe more
>>56907545>heBut the answer is not really. And she basically always wears clothes that conceal them
>>56907105>or on global political level.you mean aside from the fact that this is exactly what it did, thus helping pressure everyone else into sending tanks. the 14 challys were purely a token and will probably just sit on the border of belarus to free up some other ukrainian tanks.
>>56906675Germany, the UK, and the US happen to be the only Western nations with MBT's that are worth half a shit in quantities sufficient to peel off more than a platoon worth to send.Italy and France definitely don't meet the same criteria.
>>56906593can't wait til russia finally drops the first nuke and every country in the world withdrawsfucking bunch of cuck faggots sending free shit to some non-country that has nothing to do with anything on the world stage. you can look up live feeds of all the major cities in ukraine and nothing is happening. it's money laundering at it's finest and propaganda at it's worsefuck this country (usa) and all the cuck states that are following in our footsteps, fucking faggot retards all of them
>>56908120This hands that made this post will have to jack off dudes for money within a year just to afford to eat.This post honestly made it all worthwhile.

meanwhile TURKIYE has already sent hundreds of RUSSOREMOVERS known as KIRPIhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtuseeM3iSA

>>56908120That's not how nuclear war works
>>56908120Such a well written post. You have totally brought me to your side with all the swearing and anger.

>>56907095>31 AbramsJesus fuck that is substantial. I can't wait for the combat footage. This is a cold war nerd's (me) wet dream.
>>5690878331 for now. Remember a couple of weeks ago when the US said they were send 50 Bradley's to Ukraine. They announced they're sending 59 more and it got very little coverage
What's shitaly's tonk like?
>>56909277It runs on prago
>>56906755Western media painted her as a pro-russian anti EU populist. And then promptly memoryholed her when she spoke against Putin.
>>56909277>120mm L/44>1275 HP Diesel engine>some 54t>weird composites array>add on armour against kinetic and CE if needed beit’s bad but very sexy
>>56906729Blatantly false. The center-center-center-left government started the deliveries back in March 22 and never wavered. 2/3 of the (right wing) current government had been opposing them (salvini & berlusconi, both compromised with russia- berlusconi having been literally putin buddy, salvini going around with a putin shirt in moscow to get gibs).Meloni, the new pm , who also was cozy with russia due to muh identitary sovranist right, did a 180° when the war started and is now trying a balancing act between 1) europe and usa 2) her base which is split against/pro ucraine, and 3) the bases of the other right wing parties in her coalition which are fully pro-russia. Italian public opinion, in particular extreme left wing, anti-parties center-right wing, and identitarian/sovranist right wing have been incredibly manipulated by russian propaganda, and italy as a result is one of the most anti-ukraine countries. Still meloni knows a losing horse when she sees one (russia) so weapon deliveries go on but they are not advertised to the population.God- I foresee the general italian seethe as soon as the "depleted uranium" keywords fully make their way in the public discourse.
>>56908280a good 2/3rds of /pol/ has been taken over by leftypol retards and 3rd world non-whites
>>56910956It should be noted that salvini, with the lega party (anti immigrants, pro russia) and berlusconi with the forza italia party (anti taxes, anti prosecution of financial crimes, pro enterprises, not really pro russia except for berlusconi himself who misses the literal orgies with putin) are minority in the coalition. Meloni calls the shots.
>>56910956berlusconi's electorate is not fully pro russia. they just don't care, for the most part. They'll become pro ukraine as soon as there are money to be made there. It is just old silvio that had something special going on with outin
>>56909416This. It's really sad that anything right of political centre is automatically painted as a new Hitler propped by Russians.She might not be best PM in the Italian history but she was supporitng both Italian national interests and Ukriane from the start.t. Rusnigger hating conservative Eurofag
>>56911069It was not automatic. Her party was walking a fine line. SHe opposed sanctions against russia in 2014. She complimented putin s relection in 2018 as "unmistakable expression of the russian people s will". She was still asking to stop the sanctions in 2015 and 2017. at that time the youth section of her party even organised a pro russia flash mob in front of the embassy . She promoted the russian vaccine sputnik in 2020, and on the 8th of februarry 2022 she was still opposing sanctions on national television (picrel).She wised up, because she want to consolidate power. But you can't erase her past support for russia. She needs to be kept under observation.
>>56908120delicious, the vatnik seethe has been highly exceptional the last days
>>56911139>She needs to be kept under observation.For sure. As every politicain ever.
>>56906675It’s really sad that none of you guys have figured out what is really going on.
>>56911234Cast your wisdom upon us then, o enlightened one
>>56907109>russian alliesEritrea?Belarus?North Korea?Syria?lmao
>>56906892>>56907184Italies GDP per captia is 35,657.50 USD.Russias GDP per captia is 12,194.78 USD.
>>56911069It is well known that Russia supports a lot of european nationalist parties hoping they would weaken the EU. Divide and conquer.
>>56907494>while a democratic Russia, and EU member bordering China, would be excellent.join me in a real world lolit's no such thing, that can't happen, all the shitstorm we have is because that was tried the last time. russians are not meant for democracy, not meant for human rights. They have been living under the boot for too long. Tsars, communists, putin, same deal, grab society by the balls and never let go.
>>56911001>anti prosecution of financial crimescan you please elaborate on that? like they want ponzi schemes decriminalized or what?
>>56911333All that needs to happen for the EU to border China is that Qazaqstan joins them.If Toqaev is serious with his reforms it might actually happen.
>>56911320Same with far left parties and organsiations here and even in the US but since EU has been ruled by left for decades we don't talk about that.
>>56911352>is that Qazaqstan joins them.putting european in european union lol
I wonder if this will effect European procurement process. Every country having their own unique tank will would make sending them to another country a logistical problem.
>>56907095All the Wagner and FSB harassment with animal body parts and bombs had obvious opposite effect.
>>56911361Check a map. They have parts west of the Ural and north of the Caucasus.
>>56906704Just a coincidence. Trust me, bro.
>>56911373europe ends on ukraine, anything east of them is a home of asiatic horde
>>56911320Russia pays off both far right and far left parties. Any kind of extremist party weakening its country is a win for the russians.It's really telling that the only German parties that protested against the Leopard shipments are the far right AfD and the far left Linke
>>56911382Tell that to Georgia.
>>56906871Yeah, that really worked out great in Russia.
>>56909416>Western media painted her as a pro-russian anti EU populist. And then promptly memoryholed her when she spoke against Putin.Chinless /pol/ incels had a huge meltdown when that happened, it was a good day.
>>56911391Never has been part of europe and never will.They are culturally and ethnically closer to iranians.
>>56907184Russia has almost 100mil more people living in it. Hence the per capita gdp of Italy is several times higher. Italy is le poor is merely a lie Italians have been spreading for centuries in order to detract from the fact that they're really bad at handling money.
>>56907095Some 74 year old zigger tried to blow up their prime minister.
>>56906631Draghi was a technocrat and an old EU born politician, like Scholz and MerkelMeloni, the new PM, is a new wave conservatist, right wing, liberal, religious and atlanticist, kind of like 90s American republicans
>>56911426You are not european and you never will be.
>>56906631Italy has been sending a lot of stuff on the down low: Italian politics are 99% backroom deals and deception so if you don't look carefully you get fooled all the time.t. Italian.
>>56906688>Sad thing is, no one really cared about the UK. I've definitely noticed. The UK gets zero respect.
>>56906688The UK literally accepted they're going to lose 14 tanks in order to shame Germany into doing it. As Germany was constantly making excuses why it couldn't send tanks or allow others to send tanks. UK broke that. My guess is UK will send another 40 odd in total (the 50 odd they planned to 'retire' because LOL got to give more money to brown immigrants)
>>56911517I just don't think they are as desperate as Germany or any other nation for attention. You can see this easy with 10 threads about Leo's same for the Marder and every other bit of German equipment it's really sad they feel so impotent.The UK US have been there from the start and are the only ones making a difference or are capable of making a difference, how many threads do you see up about RC135 rivet joints, satelites or the military intel provided from moles inside Russia. The anglos as always are the big dicks, everyone else is just in the ballsack.
>>56911540UK is and always has been USA's poodle That's why you get zero respect
>>56911517>>56911540shush, we're a post-empire state, we're about treading very fuckin quietly these days and trying not to draw any attention to the size of the stick we're carrying. or the grip we have on global finance. no no, forget the subs, commonwealth fusion is an international effort, five eyes is all america, cup of tea chap?
>>56906631Italy has done a lot you moron. They're just not disclosing it with the public the details of what they're sending
>>56911343Berlusconi got rich in many shady ways. Mafia connections, insider trading, corruption, evasion, possibly embezzlement. His political career has been 90% devoted to fend off legal consequences. He doesn't really have a message beyond let money make money. Given that most italian entrepreneurs have similar issues, there you have the core of its party line, plus more jobs less taxes for everyone and anti-communism (where communism is the judicial system). Also something about owning three TV channel and being cool.
>>56906853Most of the Danish ones have been upgraded to A7's, and nobody wants to risk those falling into the hands of Russians. There might be some Danish A5's in Germany undergoing modernization that'll be sent to Ukraine. But we're talking low numbers like 2-6 tanks.
>>56907756god I hope not, I'd give my left nut to see good footage of a chally and a bmp-2 working together to mow down russians
>>56907083He's probably German.
>>56911540>>56911550>>56911561Brussels has been using every chance it gets to do Britain dirty post-brexit. Even Ursula even had the nerve to bring compared with England to Russia over the northern Ireland protocol. I'm starting to wish Russia gets a big win simply so they remember they still need us.
>>56906686Ukrainians could use the Italian tanks as basic trainers for new tanker recruits.
OP here I just wanted to say that this is my most successful thread to date thanks everyone involved
>>56906631>They were the real cowards for the longest time while everyone was bitching about France and GermanyAll of Italy's aid packages' military part were secreted and not disclosed to the press or the parliament so there's no actualy count of what was sent, but here and there you see Italian produced parts pop up in photos or videos in Ukraine
>>56911540if there is one European country that does NOT want attention, it be Germany. It has been their policy for 70 years now. They just want to sell their stuff and try to not upset anyone while doing it. However, again and again every European NATO and EU country in the end always look at Berlin when big decisions have to be made.Post empire UK on the other hand has always been a try hard to stay relevant on the world stage, mostly by unconditionally supporting whatever stance or venture the US was on at the time.
>>56911234Elaborate o wise one.
>>56906704It is about the potential of sending hundreds of units. Challenger 2s simply dont exist in those numbers
>>56911607Brussels doesn't need to do anything, when you have Tories shooting themselves in the foot over and over again.
>>56911607>I'm starting to wish Russia gets a big win simply so they remember they still need usYou sound like a spiteful ex. Get over it.
>>56910998About evens out how /k/ is now dominated by Democrats and Europeans
>>56912179>Doesn't want attention >Constantly whoring itself on msm>German autismos whoring themselves on 4chin>B-but UKYour upset the UK still occupies Germany to this day aren't you lol
>>56906593Weren't the Russian complaining just a couple of weeks ago that Italy was sending Ukraine modern landmines?
>>56910998>/pol/fags got ethnically replaced on their own board
>>56912234>Brussels doesn't do anything Correct.Brussels just had to take out an 18bn loan to prop up the sorry state of the EU contributions to stop themselves being absolutely mogged by the anoglosphere. How come continentals seem to follow the UK media so much its like the are obsessed with us. Must be shit to have to be told from an early age you must learn English to be heard in this world...
>>56911497are these Spaniards or Italians?
>>56906960this is absolutely true but crossing that boundary and breaking the 'taboo' was important, leaders like having cover and hiding behind someone else, and holdouts can more easily refuse if no-one else has done so either. it was an important move that helped open the floodgates
>>56906631And now they're cowardly not standing up to the US
>>56911607Don't worry, you will be back in the EU in your lifetime and have a lot of time to cope
>>56912255Not a German here, just a long time follower of geopolitics.
>>56912281Nobody cares Br*t.
>>56911395well at least they don't have political instability (for now)
>>56912196>>56911254ww2 alliances rebuilding
>>56912264>modernthey were complaining about the land mines, which italy sold to basically everyone back in the daythose found in ukraine are probably coming from the soviet afghan war
>>56912281>has to bring out the Anglosphere to try to make a point about still being relevantthis is some extreme cope anonYou also make it sound like you have no idea how government finance works.
>>56906631Send mafiosi to whack KGB in Moscow
>>56912612>Being this desperateYikes, why don't all the EU nations leave Nato then if your so confident in it? Awww no you lose the two biggest powers right...pathetic
>>56911562Then how do you know how much they've done?
>>56906706The strategy was likely that the UK, being a nuclear power, would test the waters, because Russia had zero options to retaliate. Had to be them or France to keep US face off the entire thing. After tanks were normalized, everybody could send them. NATO is very well coordinated on the issue and the fact that a lot of people are falling for political theatrics is hilarious.>>56906631Italy is doing a lot but not very keen on parading it on Twitter.>>56906699That makes her an anomaly in all of Europe, tbqh.>>56906787Portugal is confirmed.>>56907068Interesting for you to know that because the readiness levels are classified.>>56907095Because Spain has a huge fleet and can give the 2A4 for EU money to buy new tanks. It’s a great deal to upgrade the tank fleet. Their active force uses 2E exclusively anyway.>>56911370France and Germany are now pooling acquisition and have merged KMW and Nexter.>>56911383This.>>56912234EU is literally paying for most of the aid. Especially for small partners with tight budget.
>>56912516Eritrea aren't that loyal, they abstained in the second UNGA vote.
>>56908120>can't wait tilYou sure can't, bud.
>>56912784>EU is literally paying for most of the aid. Especially for small partners with tight budget.The post you are referring to is not about EU aid, but about Tories turning their formerly highly regarded UK into a clown country over the past decade.
>>56913029Must have been a misclick then.
>>56908120>nothing is happening, there is nothing there, but also we'll nuke
>>56908120>non-country that has nothing to do with anything on the world stageit's in europe unlike you thirdie
>>56906631they are heavily dependent on EU gibs
>>56912575>WW2 alliance>Germany, US and UK
>>56913191the opposite actually
>>56906631Italy was among the first tostart sending stuff
>>56908120You must live in a very nice place for you to think that a global thermonuclear war would be an improvement, anon.
>>56911383Same thing in the US, where there is broad consensus on what to do.The hard core Trumpers - "Stop hurting based Putin!"The Chomsky loving far-leftists - "America is le bad okay!"
>>56907578damn i wanted to see them
>>56913191Italy is one of the top contributors to EU. Incompetent governments and slow inefficient bureaucracy mean they can't use the resources they get back correctly.
>>56906688There is even a high chance that the Leopard 2 will arrive sooner than the Challenger tanks. No one really cares about the Challenger because unlike Leopard 2 and Abrams the Challenger can't be delivered in high numbers.
>>56906688It was the result of some dick waving with Boris Johnson and the fact that they couldn't send any IFVs. Also the Challenger 2 aren't rated very highly outside of British forums.
>>56911281Kiribati? WTF is Kiribati?
>>56913348it’s still unconfirmed, and seeing how secretive past packages have been, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw pics of Arietes on the battlefield before any official confirmation
>>56913405>n-no one c-caresCram it faggot, more challenger 2s are combat ready on British bases inside Germany (that's right UK still cucks German land kek) than there are Leopard 2s. Proof? Any military media source will tell you the shocking combat readiness of the skeleton stock bundeswank, did you know the only have six (6!) tanks in the Nato readiness deployments that's really sad especially when there are 75 Challengers! >>56913412It's pretty funny how much cringe comes from these low effort posts caused by the brutal Challenger mogging resulting in the collapse of EU bumbling. You got played son! Seeeeeeeeeething
>>56913563what’s this pic supposed to prove?
>>56913432next russian target
>>56906699Meloni is a plant and a false front, not an anomaly. She's just like Trump, but the people she's gatekeeping for have to keep pretending long after she's been exposed.
btw to the retards going on aboutbmuh poorfags Italians, and the ones about rich Italians, you're both wrong, it's in the middle, yes itslynis 1st world and has 8th highest GDP etc but you must keep in mind that half of that is taken by the filthy socialist state that uses it in retarded ways so that you only get back a minimal portion of the value of your taxes, so in reality the wealth of actual people is greatly reduced due to the very high taxation
>>56913458why is it so secretive?I've seen the wilipeida pages about aid to ukr and Italy has some listed stuff but mainly pzh2000 or POG support equipment, but I recall a video of a Ukrainian showing a mortar and saying its Italian, ah yes and they also sent iveco lince (armored car)
>>56913191That would be the poles. Without the EU the toilet cleaners would be poorer than nigeria
>>56906631Italy sent a lot of stuff but kept it under official state secret to not anger the general population which is pro russia
>>56906631>They were the real cowards for the longest timeTell me 1 reason I should give a fuck about ukraine
>>56913645Slightly more complex than that. We are the country with the most money "under the mattress" and in real estate. Also with the most tax evasion. Wealth is reduced by a shaky economy and by the underdevelopment of southern Italy for historical and structural reasons, not by taxation.
>>56913250>West lost WW2What exactly do they teach about WW2 in Russia? I know they usually don't mention them being allies with the Nazis at the beginning, but I'm starting to think that they believe that this game trailer is actually a documentary.https://youtu.be/_lXpmhu_9OQ
>>56913725>>56913735Do not be mislead by the cowardly kraut, him and France are leading a campaign of disinformation to cover there cowardice and fumbling of the situation.At least Italy didn't sit at that dumb fucking table like Olaf and Macron lmaoooo
>>56913718>UK does Brexit>Constant yuropoor seethe to this day This image makes it clear why now kek
>>56913191>Italy>depending on EU gibsNever underestimate the power of propaganda folks
>>56913645The way bigger problem is that all the italian wealth is concentrated Rome and north of it, the rest of the country is literally Africa.
>>56913735Because it's right.Also, since you replied - means you give a fuck.
>>56913795Nope that's >Germany >FranceIn that order
>>56913718>Poland >slav just like their russian neighbors>literal nigger behavior Color me surprised>>56913735You shouldn't unless you actually have a personal connection to the conflict.Throughout all of human history, territory is gain and lost for justified and unjustified reasons.
>>56913787Show guns and national dish, Nigel.
>>56906593Yes rishi we need peace
>>56913811I smell russian scumbag.
>>56913809Sadly this is true. The two with the highest gdp in the EU are also the most scared
>>56913795>Because it's rightDon't care. I prefer for prices and imports of izhmash aks to come back than some slimy ukrainian to try to regain crimea for the next 10 years.
>>56913828You're smelling the slav on yourself, you filthy subhuman.
>>56913840>I prefer for prices and imports of izhmash aks to come back than some slimy ukrainian to try to regain crimea for the next 10 years.Can you speak English?
>>56913862>no argumentsI rest my case
>>56913745yes 50% taxes dont reduce wealthmuh tax evasion is a meme most taxes are paid by big businesses that have a hard time evading significant amounts, it's small businesses and self employed that evade
>>56913745real estate is not wealth that helps you with consumption just bc your parents own a family home, it can relieve you of some expenses tho or if you rent it your family gets more money but it's not the same as having better job opportunities
>>56913840>imports of izhmash aks to come backBased
>>56913793why is it a problem, the problem would be that the south has less money, not that the north has more, that's a good thing
>>56906675France simply doesn't have enough Leclercs to send, nor do they have the logistics to supply Ukraine with spare parts. They sent the AMX-10 which is more than enough to make vatniks seethe and cope. Much cheaper, basically scrapyard-tier for the french, but very efficient at what they do.
>>56913811Poland gets a lot of transfers for its farmers and for infrastructure inverstment. Which is good, considering how large the country and underdeveloped large parts are. Helping Poland to modernize will benefit us long term, especially with Ukraine westernizing. Most of the goods will travel through Poland. That offers huge opportunity for Poland to grow its economy and get a big piece of that pie. The Union is about cooperation, Vanya. That part you will never understand.All Europeans should care because the subhuman trash that is the Russians are still trying to pull shit we all agreed we wouldn’t do anymore. They make us spend money that we would rather like to use on improving our lives on bombs and tanks. Which is why we should use those bombs and tanks to remove the bully so we can get on with our lives. As they are uncooperative, the optimal strategy is tit-for-tat. Which in this case would mean murder those fucks until they leave Ukraine.
>>56908397... Which leftists? Russia is right wing, you nigger.
>>56913793>RomeYou know nothing. Rome is a shithole. 90% of italian wealth is made in the north in Lombardy.
>>56909277>What's shitaly's tonk like?has top shelf pasta cooker powered by the engine
>>56913654because the average joe here is “muh based centrist who just wants peace”>>56913735this isn’t about helping ukraine survivethis is about killing as many r*ssians as possible
>>56913795>Also, since you replied - means you give a fuck.Are you 12?
>>56913905>it's small businesses and self employed that evadeI'm pretty sure those make up a significant portion of the italian economy and european economies in general.
>>56913905Taxation does not reduce wealth when it is turned into services that enable people to generate more wealth instead of dying or being a retard that can't speak English or can't be competitive in the new job markets. The only wealth that is impaired by taxation is the wealth of those that are already rich (and that consequently don't give a fuck about education or healthcare). No surprise the high school dropout in northern cities are mostly the pampered prole of the rich that have their future granted no matter what so they don't give a fuck about education. While the high school dropouts in southern cities where services are shit and perspectives grim are the prole of the poor.
>>56911540Brits are such projecting retards lmaoBritain tries to pretend to this day it's a world power, Germany just wants to be left alone to grill cheap meat and drink cheap (but good) beer.>>56911607>I'm starting to wish Russia gets a big win simply so they remember they still need us.Europe doesn't need Britain, anon. Get over yourself.Or get over your break-up with Europe. Both works.
>>56913988>when it is turned into services that enable people to generate more wealth instead of dying or being a retard that can't speak English or can't be competitive in the new job markets.so not Italy since public services are shit and for the money paid in taxes only a tiny fraction goes to them and almost all goes to pensions and paying public debt you communist faggot with muh rhetoric about the evil rich people
>be first to donate tanks>get first dibs on looted Russian tech and build technology to defeat itSeems a fair exchange to me.You snooze you lose, krauts
>>56913988Go read Bastiat until you understand why you’re wrong
>>56913944>All Europeans should careI'm not a euro.I don't give a fuck, and neither should my country. It shouldn't be our job to act as a world police.>subhuman trash that is the RussiansRussian is a nationality. Slav is an ethnicity. Poles, russians, and Ukrainians have slav blood. Connect the obvious dots.Also, how old are you?>They make us spend money that we would rather like to use on improving our lives on bombs and tanks
>>56914008>>be first to donate tanks>>get first dibs on looted Russian tech and build technology to defeat it>Seems a fair exchange to me.>You snooze you lose, krautsRussians haven't innovated since the soviet union.Germany got all of Russia's best technology via eastern Germany. They literally got out of sidewinder in favor of building a wide coalition for IRIS because they realized Russians were ahead orbits in that department and used the Russian technology andeast-German professionals make to their own, better missile while tying in as many European nations as possible for the best results and a widely shared platform.Tldnr: You are 30 years late, Nigel. You snoze, you loze. You sleeped, you weeped, You nappa, you get slappa. You slumber, you cucumber.
>>56913944>All Europeans should careNah. The EU should've never allowed slavs into its ranks. Especially poles. Two thirds of violent crimes and theft are committed by subhuman poles here in my country.
>>56914113>They literally got out of sidewinder in favor of building a wide coalition for IRISAIM-9X, IRIS-T and ASRAAM literally all use the exact same seeker.The only thing different about them is their kinematics placing different emphasises on the range/speed/manoeuvrability triangle. They're all longer ranged and more manoeuvrable than R-73 and HOBS capable
>>56913608>Russia can take Poland, Paris, London in one feel swoopIt's over...
>>56913944>Helping Poland to modernize will benefit us long termIt already did, European companies made orders of magnitude more money in Poland than the sum of the gibs. The development funds are compensation for merging your country's market with a much stronger one without protectionism, not charity.
>>56914160> AIM-9X, IRIS-T and ASRAAMdo they now
>>56914007Dude the fact that you have been unable to get a succesfull education despite coming from a well-off family doesn't mean others can't. The Italian system is pretty good if you can navigate it. I am well-off as well , but I am proud that the job offers I am getting now are due to my work and the opportunities I got from high school throughout university, not daddy's gibs.>Much evil richStop projecting your insecurities.
>>56914097You have nothing of value to add to the discussion. If you don’t understand why increasing transaction costs and dumping resources into weapons rather than to accumulate capital is shit, you should take economics 101, you might learn something.>>56914144Racebaiting is so 19th century, anon. You are 130 years behind the curve.>>56914185And we all profit from it. Just look at the overall standard of living in Poland and how it has increased since 2004. Especially the infrastructure investments will pay off big time in the future.
>>56907095Because Spain don't need them. Morrocco, France, and Portugal ain't gonna invade any time soon, and Spain has had it's fill of sending its troops abroad with "Iraqi Freedom".
>>56906688No shit, Germany has exported 2000+ Leopards worldwide and those countries need German permission to be sending them to other countries. The Leopard question was always much more important due to sheer numbers making it a far more valuable tank.
>>56914333>racebaitingI couldn't give less of a fuck about race, yet all the criminals are fucking poles. Go figure.
>>56914339Bit sad Scholz had to buckbreak Biden and force all of Europe to come together before that could happen, innit?
>>56914429Are they? Mind sharing a source?
>>56914440I wouldn’t call cooperation in an alliance backbreaking, anon.
>>56914185Poland would've had to drop protectionist policies in order to attract investment either way, the only difference being that they wouldn't have any gibs if say the US or Japan invested in Poland instead.
>>56914333>why increasing transaction costsAny money used is loaned from a central bank. It was never "available for making your lives better".You should take a higher level of economics, you might learn something.
>>56914662 How exactly is an increased need to store weapons and use scarce resources on those instead of creating means of production or goods that actually provide utility other than the ability to kill vatniks a desirable state? Money is just a token, it’s about things anon. Or time.
>>56914561>>56914571>>56914598Would you now please show relative numbers?
>>56914825>moving the goalpostLmao
>>56914892Alternatively you may show the number of non foreign criminals.
>>56914914>poles in the uk manage to commit more crimes than 67 million other citizens It's not getting better for you, toilet cleaner.
>>56914259Yes, they all used a 128×128 InSb seekerASRAAM Block 6 onwards now uses a higher resolution seeker because the original one was manufactured in the US and subject to ITAR, so the Brits had to produce a new one to sell ASRAAM to Qatar (the US previously blocked it for Saudi Arabia, so they got IRIS-T where the seeker is German-made)IIRC the US Navy wanted a higher resolution seeker for AIM-9X Block III but it's been shelved
>>56915000just because they have the same resolution and materials doesn't mean they're the samenice trips tho
>>56914988That is highly unlikely. Because even if you just aggregate all the foreigners in London and look at the share of the poles it’s not the majority. Did you fail math?
>>56915079>doesn't understand procapita statistics.It's a pole all right.
>>56914543This way they at least get subsidies for their infrastructure.
>>56915137Your inability to read in what you claim to be your native language is astonishing.
>>56915000IRIS-T doesn't even use a fixed 128 x 128 FPA.
>>56914811Did you not understand that part about the money being loaned to your government from the central bank? With interest, I might add.Rewrite your question with better english, you retarded slav. You see this ","? It's called a comma. Use it.
>>56913754Well, he has a point. All of western Europe got occupied by America post WWII instead of going our own way culturally.
>>56913840Just get a WBP, Izhmash has had many QC issues
>>56915272The central banks are owned by the government, at least in Europe. They are not privately owned entities. Central bank rates are just taxes here. The government also does not loan money from a central bank. Where did you get that one from? The government loans money from entities willing to buy bonds. Which usually would be institutional investors. Do you even know how money is created?
>>56915346>and out here in this /k/ thread we can observe a wild Ivan, a not so rare sight these days>if you look closely you can see him projecting, it's a well known defensive techniques Ivans have been using for centuries
>>56915378>Just get a WBP, Izhmash has had many QC issuesHahahahahahahahahahahaha. Fuck no.
>>56915378>Izhmash has had many QC issuesLet me guess, you're the butthurt anon from /akg/ who kept pushing the "izhmash aks were QC rejects" even after being proven wrong multiple times?
>>56907208Why doesn't Russia fully mobilize?
>>56911371All that harassment bullshit is direct proof the FSB are complete shit compared to the KGB, especially today. You think the KGB pinkos did this body parts bullshit? Fuck no, they'd just kill a man, none of this mafia shit, they were killers not Godfather fans.
>>56915378>WBPThey are good as long as you don't shoot them. They're made of potmetal.
>>56911281>Venezuela didn't go>Cuba, Nicaragua and Bolivia abstainBolivarianbros.... we went too far with the Patría Grande...
>>56915391>The central banks are owned by the governmentThis is false. The only state banking system left belongs to Iran.
>>56914267No arguments about shit infrastructure? You're all the same.
>>56915866Define shit infrastructure. Anywhere north of Rome is on par of EU standards, and if you go to Emilia or Lombardy it's well above.
>>56915701>he still believes this 2006 libertarian conspiracy theoryBitch, please. I live in Brazil and even here the central bank is owned by the state. Whats next, you're gonna talk about how Bush is planning on invading half the planet for the benefits of the Rothschilds?
>>56916007>benefits of the RothschildsFor Israel, actually.
>>56916007>I live in Braziloh damnimpoverished and stupid
>>56916245>>56916264Don't fall for the bait guys...
