More than half of Ukraine’s tank fleet now reportedly consists of captured Russian armor | Task and Purpose

Must Read

In Kharkiv, Ukraine, Ukrainian troops ride atop a repaired Russian tank in a forested location outside the city. In order for the Ukrainian military to employ the captured Russian tanks against their adversary, mechanics are repairing whatever damage they sustained during combat. 

The Ukrainian military is only getting bigger despite its continuous conflict with Russia, and not simply because of the enormous inflow of funding from Western nations. Over half of Ukraine’s currently fielded tank fleet may be made up of captured vehicles, according to a report from the British Ministry of Defense on Friday. Those tank capture numbers are consistent with estimates from the open-source research group Oryx, which suggests based on visual evidence that Ukrainian forces have likely captured some 440 Russian tanks. It remains to be seen if the American and European allies can maintain their current pace of supplying Ukraine with heavy weapons to bolster its defense against the Russian invasion. But one thing is certain: tank combat is still vital today, despite the fact that the Russians are terrible at it.
