As noted on the Bundeswehr website, with the help of the Biber bridge-laying tank, engineering teams ensure the mobility of their own troops to overcome cross-sections of terrain, ravines or water bodies. When laying, a high-speed armored bridge with a total length of 22 meters is connected from two halves. The transport and laying machine for the bridge was created on the basis of the chassis of the Leopard 1 tank.

As Ukrinform reported, earlier Germany delivered to Ukraine three promised Mars II multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS). Also in Ukraine there are already ten PzH 200 self-propelled artillery systems and five Gepard anti-aircraft tanks.
