A column of Panthera T6 armored vehicles from the Emirates on the way to Bakhmut, one of the vehicles has already been captured. The equipment is in service with 47 and 88 mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Probably the enemy is moving strategic reserves to the city. Yesterday there was information that the first “Panther” was captured at the Stupki railway station in the northern part of Bakhmut.
In addition, the 47th Specialized Rifle Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is armed with the American Hercules ARVs. This brigade received a hodgepodge of Western equipment: the tank component was Slovenian M-55S tanks, Panthera armored vehicles from the UAE, part of the brigade was trained in America on the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, and in early February, the 47th brigade received M88A2 Hercules.
Panthera T6 light armored vehicles were put into service with the Armed Forces brigade at the end of December – a batch of 12 Arab-made vehicles transferred to Ukraine was probably purchased by a private company.
