Contrary to popular belief, tanks are still essential for Ukraine.
The top request from Ukraine to Western governments has long been tanks.
Poland has volunteered to donate 12 Leopard 2 tanks built in Germany, and the UK has offered to donate 14 Challenger 2 main combat tanks.
Many other nations are taking Ukraine's adamant requests for heavy armor into consideration.
Many commentators have viewed the tank as being outmoded in the era of long-range precision fire, drones, missiles, and potent anti-tank weapons.
Some nations have even begun to gradually phase them out, stating that the days of massive armoured assaults are over.
Why then are they required?
It would be premature to predict the tank's demise.
It is true that modern Western anti-tank weapons like the Javelin and highly accurate firing have made tanks more susceptible. The T-72 and T-80 Russian tanks have performed badly in the majority of Ukrainian fights.
Since they were created in the latter years of World War I more than a century ago, tanks have always been prone to attack.
But if Ukraine intends to launch its counteroffensive to retake the south first and then the rest of the nation, it needs hundreds of tanks, as have the weapons meant to destroy them.
After months of industrial-level battle, its own tanks from the Russian legacy are worn out and need to be replaced.
NATO nations are excellent candidates to give some of their stock, and the tanks need to get to Ukraine as soon as possible.
The defeat of Russian tanks has been a major consideration in the construction of Western tanks. Tanks are built with reactive armor, strong main guns, and increasingly efficient countermeasures to stay in the fight and protect crews.
If Ukraine intends to breach Russian defenses and regain land that Russian forces had taken in the first few weeks of the invasion, it must have main battle tanks of the newest generation.
The southern part of Ukraine is level and perfect for tanks. In order to halt an advance by the Ukrainians, Russia has also started constructing rows of trenches and strong bunkers there.
Tanks and troops shielded by infantry combat vehicles like the American Bradley, German Mardar, and possibly the Russian-built BMP-2 would advance in a Ukrainian onslaught.
