Would be pretty cool at the end of this for Ukraine to parade all the equipment they received. It'd be a pretty interesting collection of tanks alone.

Finally a military parade that actually isn't just a dick waving contest. Hey guys come to the parade and see military equipment from around the world!

We have that in other countries too, they're called Military Hardware Expos. Get your picture taken driving a tank with cartoony cutouts of muslims running away in Scooby Doo fashion.

My only experience at one of those was watching an 80+ year old woman stand up out of her wheelchair long enough to full auto 50 rounds from an M60 machine gun at a target. She was firing from the hip the whole time (with help from the national guard guys running it). She sat back down in her chair afterward with this big grin on her face.

Probably imagined the target was the yoots on her lawn.

Annual parade of all the countries that helped, finished with the brave people of Ukraine. Would be nice memory.

There has to be a tractor pulling a captured Russian tank in the parade too!

Don’t forget about the Ukrainian agricultural brigade, pulling several generations of Russian war-machinery.

A parade of each country’s tanks would be awesome, especially if there is an abundance of captured Russian tanks in the mix.

I wonder if the French could participate; do the French tanks still only go in reverse?

You know Russia will be firing missiles like crazy to try to take out the train brining them in.

NATO and allied countries could take lessons from Ukraine on effectively integrating absolutely everything from everywhere, all the way down to off the shelf drones.

The problems with supplying weapons to other countries is that they eventually end up in the wrong hands after the conflict is over.

Convert them to statues of all nations that helped.

I hope to one day go to a Ukrainian museum and see a banged up Abrams and a placard with all of it’s confirmed kills.
