The Third Battalion of the International Legion in Ukraine urgently needs several armored vehicles to provide greater security for the soldiers deployed in the heaviest fighting on the front. We have managed to secure the necessary vehicles from a dealer in the UK and now ask for your help in raising the funds to purchase them.

The Third Battalion of the International Legion in Ukraine is a unit composed of volunteers from the United States, Canada, Britain and Europe. Because very experienced soldiers serve here, they are often involved in the heaviest fighting and are currently most in need of increased security during actions and transportation to positions. That is what the vehicles we are building in this campaign are designed to do.
In particular, we need a heavy armoured truck with all-wheel drive to ensure the safe transport of troops and armoured jeeps. These will be supplemented by light army vehicles for operational movements. The main objective of the campaign is to protect the lives of our soldiers who are currently dying or being injured while moving to their positions.
The basis of the campaign is a Pinzgauer armoured patrol car with 6x6 all-wheel drive. The vehicle will be purchased from army reserves in perfect condition. The Pinzgauer is a proven military vehicle that has been in production since the 1960s and is part of the equipment of the American, British, and Ukrainian armies. As a result, there are plenty of spare parts and people in Ukraine who are able to service these vehicles.
We also want to buy four armoured jeeps for safe movement to the battlefield, as well as four modified light ATVs, which, although they do not provide as much protection, ensure speed and better coordination of the unit.
We managed to secure the vehicles from a military equipment dealer in the UK. We have secured the necessary documentation and export permits and are ready to transport the equipment to Ukraine. The vehicles will be handed over directly to the soldiers of the 3rd Battalion without any intermediary and will undergo a service check before deployment.
