During Ukraine’s conflict with Russia, simple technology has become a regular sight on the battlefield. Typically, these vehicles are pickup trucks modified with armor and guns. THE MOST WANTED AUTOMOBILES ARE Mitsubishi L200, Ford Ranger, and Toyota Hilux. Destroyed Russian vehicles have also yielded drones, multiple rocket launchers, and machine guns: In Ukraine, the technicals provide the country’s defense forces with rapid and mobile firepower.
