– This is very good news from Norway. Stoltenberg told NTB that the Norwegian tanks, along with contributions from other NATO countries, would make a difference for Ukraine on the battlefield, and enable Ukraine to liberate countries currently occupied by Russian invasion forces.

Norway currently has 36 Leopard 2A4 tanks in operational service. It is not clarified how many of these will be sent to Ukraine. The bogies are 40 years old, and the Norwegian Armed Forces have long planned to replace them.
