Germany under bigly pressure to release the Leopards tomorrow.

One can never tell, but the meeting at Ramstein AFB could a key moment in this conflict and European security more generally.
Poland et al are gonna force their hands I imagine.

What is Scholz gonna do if Poland just send their Leopards to Ukraine?

But yeah, this Ramstein summit and ensuing commitments could potentially turn the tide of the war.

or are they the good guys ensuring it does not become a Russia v NATO WWIII where no one wins?

Nah. Some of them are compromised and fear some very embarrassing press. They were in bed with the MIC oligarchs for $$$ and helped finance and provide western tech to a mafia-run gangster regime that is now resorting to a genocidal invasion to preserve itself.

There were others, like Total (oil) from France, but Germany was far and away the biggest contributor to the build up of the oligarch-run Russian MIC. Rheinmetall was particularly odious, but certainly not the only ones.
