All European countries are impotent without the presence of US.

All European countries on one side minus US are no match to Russia any day.

Germany and UK were European powers before WW2. France was less of a power after Napolean disappeared from the scene.

The WW2 brought US in Europe permanently and brought USSR/Russia as a great power.

@J.A.
Obviously Russia has biggest tank forces of around 15000 tanks followed by China with around 9000, US with 8800 and India with 6600.
If consider Ukraine they have around 2800 tanks.
Then, Belarus has 1600, Greece has 1500, Poland has 1000, Italy has around 600, France has 400

Poland is stronger today than second war in world about 76 and 70 year ago. Easily. But they are in EU and NATO like Germany so they not attack Germany in between 2015-2020.

EU contries invest alot in IFV:
German tracked Puma cost about 7 milions euro (about 350 pz), Italy 8x8 wheeled "Freccia" about 6 milions euro (650 pz)... u can bought a 2° hand Leo2A4 or A5 for 300,000 euro now (about 300/400K euro for upgrading at A6 standard without the 120/52 gun)

Good for Finland.. the low price are if the tanks remain in Europa (NATO or not NATO).
it seems that Holland has rethought the plan to completely erase the tanks from the army and held atleast 50 2A6 (1 battalion).

Leave aside numbers which won't make any difference on the battlefield.Brits, germany and France enjoys qualitative superiority over any tank in service with Russia, OIS or china.

Can't say about Armata vs challenger/Leopard/Lecrac.

Do you want buy one of 2700 italian tanks in storage for demolition or one of 3000 M-113s or one of 2,000 apc 4x4 Puma?... maybe u need a 8x8 tank destroyer or a 155mm FH-70 gun if u have bad bad neighborhoods to be erased?.. no problem

A Lepard1 for only 40,000 euro, or maybe u need a M-113?... only 15,000 euro... take a 155 mm self-propelled howtozer M-109 for 40,000 euro.
