Germany is sending 20 "armoured vehicles" to the Iraqi Army:

Germany will provide around 20 armoured vehicles to the Iraqi army as part of its NATO commitments to help reconstruction in the conflict-torn country, a government spokesman said Tuesday.

The Fuchs vehicles, which are mainly for troop transport but can be outfitted for other purposes, will be provided without weaponry, spokesman Bela Anda said in a statement.

The online version of the news magazine Der Spiegel said earlier that a first batch of the vehicles would be sent to the United Arab Emirates so that Iraqi troops can train there on their use and maintenance.
