Germany approved the sale of BMP-1s (Pvb 501) from a Czech Company to Ukraine. These are former East German BMP-1s that were converted for the Swedish Armed Forces as such the name Pvb 501. This video details the way the BMP-1s went and also why the German government has to approve the sale of a Czech company. Disclaimer: I was invited by the Panzermuseum Munster in 2019 and 2020.

It would be fair to ask the manufacturer (Russia) for permission to transfer
Greece has agreed to sendsome 150 BMP-1A1 in exchange for the same number of Marders to Germany which is to send them in Ukraine.
Known but just a reminder ..
no offense the german accent is strong. having hard time understanding hehe
It should be pointed out that while it has a better gearbox and traffic lights and no asbethos (which also reduces the fire resistance) they also removed the auto loader and the missile launcher which would be considered the primary anti tank weapon of the bmp 1. The thing also didn't shoot while in bdr hands cause nitrocellulose could enter the turret during firing which was deemed unsafe. It's combat effectiveness falls short of the russian bmp 1 if they even have them in service still.
Haven't such vehicles been death traps in Russian Army hands during its invasion of Ukraine?
Well, slightly better protection and mobility than a Toyota pickup truck. A step up from a technical.
For sale: Mint condition BMP-1s. Low kms, only driven by old lady from barracks to church on Sundays.
Call Sven for details.
Edit: I've never seen a government military sales notice before. It sounds similar to a standard used car advertisement.
And what would the Germans do if they sold the BMP1's to Ukraine without permission, sanction them? The Europeans are really showing themselves as fools in this whole debacle.
Everyone gangsta until Germany bring out its Panzer IVs.
Awesome content as always.
The beginning vide....al the final body parts aren't in the truck
Seems that NATO is determined to fight Russia until the last (Ucranian) man!
TrMdZkjVdjM&t=3m45s 3:45 You know, we Germans get a lot of laughs for our compound-nouns (Kofferwörter), but "Stridsledningspansarbandvagn" takes the cake, Swedes!
More German propaganda. Not one piece of any German military equipment has ever been received by Ukraine as per Ukraine ministry.
What are you talking about? Munster is not in Austria? Did u think no one would notice? LOL
So, let me get this straight, germany has put DRM onto their military vehicles that they sold? 🤣
Kiev: Please send us main battle tanks!
Kiev: Please send us armored personnel carriers!
Kiev: Please send us howitzers!
Kiev: What can you send us?
Kyiv: No !!!!
