What impact will Western deliveries of Armored Vehicles have on the war in Ukraine?

Ukraine War

Germany and the United States will send armored vehicles to Ukraine, the leaders of the two countries said in a joint statement. The announcement came after a phone call between German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and President Joe Biden on Thursday. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has asked for the vehicles to significantly increase his military’s firepower in the ongoing war with Russia. The US would provide Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles, while Germany would supply Marder Infantry Fighting Vehicles, the two nations said. Germany would also send a Patriot missile system, following Washington’s donation last month, to help repel Russian missile and drone attacks. Scholz and Biden added they would welcome allies’ “additional donations of air defense systems and combat vehicles.” Germany didn’t specify how many Marder vehicles would be supplied, but Der Spiegel reported it could be as many as 40.
