However, the "stronghold" in the coming years in the army did "drive away". According to the Defense Ministry, by 2020 the agency plans to equip the modern Ukrainian tanks, two battalions. Exactly how much cars will be purchased, the ministry did not specify. But as a rule, one battalion account for 30-40 tanks.

As for the modern self-propelled guns, in Ukraine are not produced. The way the situation can become a co-production. In fact, a similar project in 2015 announced "Ukroboronprom."
