The first six German infantry fighting vehicles Marder 1A3 Armored combat Vehicles (TOMA) arrived on Monday in Greece, according to a Hellenic National Defense General Staff announcement.

According to military issues website, the remaining Marder  will come to Greece in installments after the 40 BMP1s are gone to Ukraine.
