Denmark to send armored personnel carriers, heavy mortars to Ukraine.

Denmark will send 25 Piranha III wheeled armored personnel carriers and M10 heavy mortars to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Olfi Danish media outlet reports.

Piranha is a family of wheeled APCs designed by Mowag Swiss company. It is one of the most popular armored vehicles in the world. The outlet notes that the Piranha III is an outdated APC model for Denmark. At present, the Danish army adopts Piranha V armored personnel carriers.

All Piranha vehicles can move afloat with the help of two propellers mounted in the stern under the hull. Piranha can be used as a tank destroyer and self-propelled anti-tank missile system.

Piranha vehicles can be equipped with various turrets with guns made by foreign manufacturers: Swiss Oerlikon-Bührle GAD-AOA with 20mm gun, Israeli TCM-20 with a paired 20mm anti-aircraft gun, French Hispano-Suiza with a 90 ET-90 with 90mm howitzer gun.

In addition to these armored personnel carriers, Denmark sends heavy M10 mortars and thousands of shells for them to Ukraine.

The media outlet also specified the number of M113 G3 DK tracked armored personnel carriers which were reported to be sent to Ukraine earlier. The Armed Forces will receive 50 such armored personnel carriers.
