The AFU uses GAIA Amir at the front: Israeli armored vehicles with 4×4 wheel configuration and chassis based on Ford F550
The Armed Forces of Ukraine were spotted during the liberation of the Kherson region with Israeli armored vehicles GAIA Amir.
Here's What We Know
Photos of the car were shared by military analysts @UAWeapons. It is unknown how many of these vehicles were received by the AFU. What is interesting, Israel has not officially transferred weapons to Ukraine. So we can assume that the Ukrainian army received such armored vehicles from a European country, which had previously purchased the vehicles for itself.
