Military Equipment Of Greece
The heavy equipment and weaponry of the Hellenic Army is of mostly foreign manufacture, from German, French, American, British and Russian suppliers. A notable exception is the Leonidas armored fighting vehicle which is built in Greece by the Hellenic Vehicle Industry.
Equipment runs the gamut from state-of-the-art to obsolescent Cold War inventories; the latter are gradually being retired.
