The Oshkosh M1070 tractor was developed in 1990 in the USA to transport heavy equipment in the US Army. Former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, together with the volunteer movement, purchased one in England for the needs of the Ukrainian army.

The 8x8 vehicle is equipped with a 6-seater cab and can operate as part of road trains with a gross weight of up to 107 tons. The vehicle is equipped with a 12-liter turbodiesel with a capacity of 500 hp. With. In 1997, redesigned tractors under the index 1070F began to enter the army of England. The 1070F tractor was significantly different from the base model. It has a 700 hp diesel engine. For use in areas with increased danger, the cab of the tractor can be equipped with hinged armor, as well as lattice screens that protect against cumulative RPG grenades. Mounting of a remote-controlled installation with a 7.62-mm machine gun is provided on the cabin roof. The empty vehicle weighs 19.5 tons. The load capacity of the tractor semi-trailer is 70 tons. The range is set at 520 km.

List of German supplies to the Ukrainian army

The Federal Government supports the Ukrainian military in close coordination with its partners and allies. This list provides an overview of lethal and non-lethal German military support for Ukraine. It includes deliveries from the Federal Armed Forces, as well as supplies from German industry financed from the Federal Government’s funds for so-called security capacity building.

Under the 2022 budget process, the funds for the security capacity building initiative were increased to a total of 2 billion euros for the year 2022. The additional funds are to be used primarily to support Ukraine. At the same time, they will be used to finance Germany’s increased mandatory contributions to the European Peace Facility (EPF), which in turn goes towards reimbursing EU member states for costs incurred to them in providing support for Ukraine.

The total value of individual licenses issued by the Federal Government for the export of military goods in the period from January 1, 2022, to November 14, 2022 amounts to 1.540.932.933 Euro. The total license value includes the goods listed above insofar as their export is subject to licensing requirements under German foreign trade laws. This is not the case for all of the goods listed above.

In order to speed up the processing of certain deliveries, the Federal Government has also eased certain licensing processes, e.g. with regard to military protective goods. These deliveries are also not included in the total license value. The values stated for used material from the German Armed Forces are also based on current values which can be significantly lower than the corresponding values for new or replacement goods. The total license value includes the goods regardless of how their procurement and delivery were financed. For security reasons, the Federal Government does not provide further details until the goods have been delivered.

* Deliveries from industry stocks financed by German funds for security capacity building. Some of the deliveries require upgrades or productions are ongoing; also training measures are to take place.
