美国还向乌克兰提供 100 多辆 Bradley 和 Stryker 装甲车，向德国提供 40 辆 Marder 步兵战车以及坦克。
The more lightly armored Stryker, because it is wheeled, can move much faster on paved roads, meaning it can get infantry squadrons into the fight faster.

an army unit consisting of soldiers who fight on foot
Armies usually contain different divisions for different purposes. For example, soldiers on horseback belong to the Cavalry, those who work in communications are in the Signal Corps, and soldiers specially trained to fight on foot are members of the Infantry.
It seems somewhat strange to have the word “infant” in a word that refers to a fighting military unit, but the word infantry once referred to the foot soldiers who were too young or too inexperienced to qualify for the cavalry. The word was taken from the Latin word for a youth, infantem, and so evolved into infantry after working its way through the Spanish, Italian, and French, appearing in English in the late 16th Century.
用“婴儿”这个词来指代战斗的军事单位似乎有些奇怪，但步兵一词曾经指的是太年轻或太缺乏经验的步兵，不适合骑兵。这个词取自拉丁语中青年的意思，infantem，在经过西班牙语、意大利语和法语的演化后演变为步兵，并于 16 世纪末以英语出现。
Their method was, first, to increase the prestige of their own soldiers by taking away the prestige of the infantry.
