Poland and a number of other countries have agreed to send around 100 Leopards to Ukraine.

The Biden administration also appears to be on the way to sending Abrams tanks, while Britain has promised a just over ten tanks of the Challenger 2 model.

The Leopard 2 tanks are equivalent to the most modern Russian tanks T-90 and T-72.

The accurate Swedish artillery system Archer, on the other hand, has no equivalent other than at the development stage in Russia.

The Patriot air defense system is comparable to Russia's S-400, but Ukraine will only have limited access to the Patriot, according to Elfving.

Ukraine has said it needs heavy tanks to be able to regain areas occupied by Russia.
