Answering The Call: Heavy Weaponry Supplied To Ukraine


By Joost Oliemans and Stijn Mitzer
 
The following list attempts to keep track of heavy military equipment delivered or pledged to Ukraine during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine. The entries below are sorted by armament category (with a flag denoting the country of delivery), and due to the confidential nature of some arms deliveries they can serve only as a lower bound to the total volume of weaponry shipped to Ukraine. Private donations or purchases, ATGMs, MANPADS, mortars and commercial UAVs are not included in this list. This list will be updated as further military support is declared or uncovered.
