A Ukrainian crowdfunding campaign has successfully raised more than $6,4 million to buy 101 CVR(T) tracked armored vehicles for Ukrainian Army.
According to a press release from Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation, the first batch – 24 vehicles – is already in Ukraine.
The armored vehicles were repaired in the UK and are prepared for modern communication and armament installation.
Previously, Ukraine’s former president Petro Poroshenko conducted a similar campaign to buy a batch of Spartan vehicles.
The CVR(T) is a family of British-made combat vehicles.
The Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked), abbreviated CVR(T), is a family of armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) developed in the 1960s for the British Army. They are small, highly mobile, air-transportable armored vehicles, originally designed to replace the Alvis Saladin armored car.
