Ukraine Update: The Ukrainian Army is expanding—they need American surplus armor

The Ukrainian Army has formally acknowledged something rumored for months: they are forming five new brigades—the 150th, 151st, 152nd, 153rd, and 154th Mechanized Infantry brigades. Five additional mechanized brigades are rumored to be within months of activation.

Even five brigades represent approximately a 5% expansion of the Ukrainian Army, thus 5-10 new brigades  represent a significant increase in combat strength for Ukraine—provided sufficient trained soldiers, officers, and equipment can be provided.
