Ukraine is building mock-up models of Leopard tanks to fool Russian suicide drones

The Ukrainian company Temerland LLC built a dummy model of the Leopard 2 main battle tank to fool the Russian forces.

To produce a Leopard 2 mockup, the company used a regular minivan as the basis for the central platform, according to Ukrainian media reports.

Temerland LLC stated that this week they will start producing the first dummy model of the German Leopard 2 tank.

The vehicle will be equipped with several elements that will visually transform it into a version of the Leopard tank, which is a top priority target for Russia's suicide drones.

Judging by the available photos, the tank replica is very simple and can be disassembled and transported to another location by truck.

The armed forces of Ukraine used dummy versions of various weapons currently active in the war against Russia.

Earlier, the Ukrainian military told Western media that Russian forces had destroyed hundreds of dummy tanks.

In general, the price of one tank dummy version is less than 1000 US dollars.

Besides the Leopard 2, Ukraine also produces mock-ups of howitzer guns and radars.
