Russian Armor

September 2, 2021 – Why the T-90 is cheap useless junk!

May 11, 2022 – Commonly considered to be one of the world’s deadliest tanks, the T90 battle tank is the crown jewel of Russia’s military vehicles. Capable of firing different types of ammunition, it is able to take out armored vehicles from over 5km’s away and can travel up to 60km/h. But with more than 19 of these tanks already having been lost during Russia’s war with Ukraine, the fault in its design might be that it simply wasn’t meant for urban warfare.

December 7, 2022 – Russian tanks have taken heavy losses in Ukraine. Countless images of decapitated turrets and burnt-out wrecks have made headlines around the world with some proclaiming the death of the tank altogether. They argue that the threat of artillery, drones, and man portable anti-tank missiles makes them extra vulnerable on the modern battlefield and an unsustainable risk to their crews. But is that really true? It turns out that, rather than the tank itself, Russia’s tactics may be to blame for these losses.

December 14, 2022 – Anti-Tank Guided Missiles or ATGMs have become a defining symbol of the Ukrainian fight against Russian invasion. They have destroyed countless armored vehicles and provided endless material for viral social media clips. But why have ATGMs been so effective in the war so far, and could that be about the change?

January 9, 2023 – “Our Warrior IFV fleet is going to be retired. Well, frankly, before we scrap it, let’s make a number of these really useful infantry fighting vehicles available to the Ukrainians.” The modern tanks and armored vehicles NATO countries are considering sending to Ukraine could cripple Putin’s ageing tank fleet, says Lord Dannatt.

January 15, 2023 – While tanks and fighters tend to win public attention, the fighting in Ukraine has done a lot to remind us of the critical role played by the infantry. And to survive and thrive on the battlefield, the infantry in Ukraine relies on their armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles to enable to enable movement and provide fire support. Those vehicles, so critical to both sides have, however, been lost in extreme numbers – with no vehicle on the Russian side having suffered more visually confirmed losses than the BMP-2. Now, it seems, the floodgates are opening on the supply of Western IFVs to Ukraine. In this video I look at these vehicles, their employment in Ukraine, and suggest that despite being lost in large numbers – that they will remain critical in the fighting to come.

February 5, 2023 – The Russians don’t have many tanks left. Most of the tanks in Russia’s storage facilities are not suitable for recovery. And their industry is not capable of producing more than 60 tanks a year. By continuing to lose a lot of tanks on the battlefield, the Russians risk being completely without tanks this year. A great tank power can fall behind without tanks.

February 13, 2023 – It is now estimated that Russia has lost half of all their capable tank fleet in less than a year in Ukraine. As we approach the one year anniversary, everyone is waiting for a possible major offensive push from either the Russians or the Ukrainians. Meanwhile Ukraine continues to hold on to Bakhmut.

March 22, 2023 – In the beginning, there was nothing. And that’s when the arguments started. The T-14 Armata, the first Russian tank to be produced since the fall of the Soviet Union (yes I am aware ‘Soviet’ means Union so technically I just said Union Union, this is a common thing in language and no one is impressed when you point one out shut up) has been revered by many as a God among tanks, a new age in armored warfare that will re-define what it means to be in a tank while shooting other tanks and the people who have to think about how those people in those tanks should shoot the other tanks would have to throw out everything they know and re-think, from scratch, the art of shooting people in tanks while also being inside of a tank. But it is all hyped up to be, or has a country with a propaganda budget larger than some countries GDP’s fooled us all? Watch the video and find out.

April 5, 2023 – Ukraine javelin missiles destroyed 50 Russian tanks in Bakhmut with ingenious tactic!

April 7, 2023 – This is why Russian tanks have been annihilated by Ukraine | Russia Ukraine update. Bristling with guns, encased in armor and designed to smash through enemy defenses, the tank is surely one of the most terrifying weapons on the modern battlefield. And no country in the world had more of them than Russia. But after a year of all-out war in Ukraine, analysts believe Putin may have lost up to two thirds of his tanks in the largest obliteration of Russian armor since World War Two. The situation is now so dire that Russia’s generals are pulling 70-year-old Cold War relics out of storage to plug the gaps. Meanwhile state-of-the-art British Challenger 2 tanks and German Leopards have started arriving in Ukraine, and could be hurtling towards Russian lines within weeks. This is the story of how the world’s largest tank army was decimated on the killing fields of Ukraine, and what it means for the future of the war.

May 24, 2023 – Since the beginning of the 2022 Russo-Ukrainian War, Russia lost a lot of equipment. In this video, we listed the Top 5 Rubbish Russian Tanks Lost in Ukraine so far.

August 30, 2023 – In the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Russian tank crews have been repeatedly displaying their lack of training and experience, resulting in significant losses for the Russians. Videos of their operations reveal a complete disregard for basic tactics and a stunning lack of awareness of enemy drones. As a tank commander with 24 years of experience, Former Royal Tank Regiment Commander Hamish de Bretton-Gordon says that the Russian tank crews are making every mistake in the book.

One of the major issues observed is the close proximity of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles. This not only makes them an easy target for enemy drones but also limits their ability to engage multiple targets effectively. In a tank, once you’ve fired at one target, you need to completely move the turret to engage the next one. However, when tanks are bunched together, as we see in the videos, they can all be targeted at once. Proper spacing between tanks is crucial for their survival, yet the Russian crews seem unaware of this basic principle.
