The KF51 tank has taken on a familiar appellation shared with a Word War 2-era tank of the same name. The battle tank is the first such equipment revealed by Berlin in the last 40 years.

The new Panther tank is equipped with highly modern equipment making it one of the most powerful tanks in the world.

Included in the tank, which cost $1.6billion (£1.3billion) to develop, is a larger main gun than its predecessor, the Leopard 2, a digital computer framework and a full array of defensive features to protect the tank on the battlefield.

Most notable is the counter-attack measures included in the tank, with the ability to deter attacks by anti-tank projectiles aimed at it, including the American-made Javelin missile.

I Call Bull: Double Clickbait, firstly this is not being deployed against Russia (yet) and secondly it is not a £1.3bn tank, that was the development costs

Germany get a full on weapon of war for £1.3 billion and what do we get for £3.2 billion? A pathetic Ajax armoured vehicle that isn't fit for purpose, doesn't work properly and cripples those that try and use it.
That right there shows you how inept Johnson and his cronies are.

Let's hope Boris backs the UK out of it all now and let's Germany take up all the slack. Maybe then he could invest the billions he is just in the UK instead of it getting lost in the unaccountable pit under the guise of Ukrainian aid.

I mean it is one heck of a piece of kit but this bear bating needs to stop as all it is doing is escalating things
