As winter approaches, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will need more armored vehicles. To help meet this need, the Serhiy Prytula Charitable Foundation has announced a fundraiser to buy fifty FV103 Spartans.

The Prytula Foundation plans to collect 200 million hryvnias ($5.4 million) from November 2 to 8 to fund the purchase of armored personnel carriers.

The 50 Spartan units that are in stock in the UK are in good condition, according to Serhiy Prytula's video. There are many of them.

"Why Spartan? - Because our army needs it! Spartan is a tracked armored vehicle, without which it will be difficult to win in conditions of rain, mud and future snow! It is important - all 50 Spartans are already waiting for us and will be in Ukraine very quickly, and will go to our brigades," Serhiy Prytula said.

To transfer money, you will need to follow the instructions on the Fund's Facebook page or official website.

The FV103 Spartan is a tracked armored personnel carrier that entered service with the British Army in 1978. It can carry up to seven people, including three crew members. It is armed with one 7.62 mm machine gun, and it is equipped with a 4.2-liter Jaguar gasoline engine or a 5.9-liter Cummins turbodiesel.

In 2022, the British government sent small batches of Spartans to support the Ukrainian military.
