How West Will Deliver Tanks To Ukraine & Why The War May Be Over Before They Reach The Frontline

  • Published on Jun 9, 2023 veröffentlicht
  • The US-made Abrams tanks are named after American military general Creighton Abrams who was known for his leadership during the Vietnam war. After the M1 Abrams was first commissioned in the US Army in 1980, the tanks has proven its success on several battlefields.
    The M1 Abrams is known for its superior firepower, protection and mobility has made into a weapon of choice for Ukraine.
    Last week, the US President Joe Biden agreed to send more than 30 M1 Abrams tanks into Ukraine, a decision that he had been reluctant to make for many months now. Biden’s hand was forced in a sense by Germany which decided to send over a dozen Leopard 2 tanks and by Britain which earlier announced that it’ll be sending the challenger 2 tanks.
    On Crux Decode, Zakka Jacob explains if these tanks will make any difference on the battlefield, their delivery timelines and why Russia has avoided to show any alarm over the move.

    The tank was named after Abrams because of his actions in WW2. He was a Colonel and an armored commander under General Patton. He was often referred to as Patton's spear tip.

    Well yes, in general I have a feeling that delivery decisions are made when "shit hits the fan". Same with fighter jets, categorically saying no now shows a lack of forward planning, since no one knows now what Russia might do in 6 months.
    I never thought of battle tanks as a big game changer, tank battles are largely over, air superiority is more important, air defence is more important long range artillery is more important etc.
    Russia though is hilarious like always, first they complain and threaten in case tanks are sent, and then they say tanks are not a problem anyway. Reminds me of three year old kids throwing a tantrum.

      ‘Tank battles are largely over’? Says who? Not Russia, that’s for sure. Russia has more tanks than any other country in the world (or at least it did have before it invaded Ukraine).

    The M1 A1 development started way earlier than stated. It started in 1964. GE and Chrysler got the contract in the 1970's, not the 1980's. Also they don't mention the fact Ford built tanks for the military and this is why Ford hasn't done a contract with the US military since. To give an example Ford built military tabks in WW2. Threwout history of the US military they have had several manufacturing companies they have worked with in clueding GM, Chrysler, Ford, Dodge, Jeep and many others.

      All this talk about not letting Teck into 🇷🇺 hands..eg uranium ( blocks) armour, but were a dozen or so US tanks left in Afghanistan…even if disabled..armour and some military technology still on them…is this just talk, like Abrams will only run on Aviation fuel, when they will run on any fuel,( maybe not as fast/powerful/long lasting engine..but run on them..

    Poland already said only five weeks is needed to train the Ukrainians. Also the soldiers training on these tanks are not fresh civilian teenagers being pulled up into the Ukrainian army like in European or American armies. This is more of a conversion training program to upgrade their existing skills for these tanks.

    Unfortunately, our world is lacking in military strategists. The world has military journalists that talk a lot and do little. The tanks should have been delivered to the appropriate places in the various battlefields BEFORE announcing the delivery to the world including Putin.

  • REF

    ...'nudge from the British' ? The british decision did not play any role vis a vis Germany. To make the point clear, Germany delivering Leopard tanks means unleashing, at least in the longer run, a potential 4 figure number of reasonably modern to top notch tanks (depending on leopard version) from 3rd countries. This has the potential to decide the war. Now , Germany did not want to be seen by Russia as the main cause, the maker of the decision that lead to their (a.t.m. potential) defeat. This would have had serious repercussions, regarding the Russia/Germany relationship (particularly bec. of the background of WW2) for a generation to come. Now 14 british tanks do not play the SLIGHTEST role in this context. But the US stepping up as the main antagonist, also with regard to the decision of sending in modern MBT and thus taking most of the heat, does help to alleviate this problem. Britains contributions to Ukraine are valuable, but Britains political role in continental europe is diminishing. ...and Russia does not take UK seriously, anyway.

      much of what you've stated is conjecture, and as such time will tell to what degree it is correct or false
      but one very important point. a handful of MBT's will make no difference to the eventual Russian victory over Ukraine These tanks will simply burn.
      tragically the more weapons that NATO supplies, the longer the war will last and therefore the more Ukrainians will die, and of course Russians but in lesser numbers

    Abrams was driving around France in 1944 in an obsolete, medium Sherman tank, being shot up by every German tank in use. After that he swore he would send Americans into action in the heaviest tanks possible in future.

    As a Romanian, I will say to you that the Romanian press, which is usually well-informed, has not reported the presence of Ukrainian troops or the delivery of Western weapons, heading to Ukraine. Poland has foolishly taken the role of premier entry point for weapons to Ukraine.

    I think it is too late for the tanks. This should have occured several months ago so that the Ukrainians can properly be trained. To adequately fight a Russian push, they'll now need long range weapons.

      @Dena T the logistics of operating and most importantly maintaining western tanks takes months to properly learn. I hope that Ukraine gets tanks soon, but it won't be before a Russian push, which means it will be too late.
      They need ATACMS now.

  • Geoffrey Byamukama

    When they are sending tanks or other equipments they don't say exact numbers because it breaches the operational security. When they say 30 or 14 tanks just know they are more than that.

    • Tim Smith
      Tim Smith 4 months ago

      I think the numbers are accurate, but they only represent the current wave of deliveries. It doesn’t mean there won’t be any future waves of deliveries.

  • Daniel Martin
    Daniel Martin 4 months ago +1

    I was counting on a great magnificent deception and seeing the tanks already there. Maybe not in force, but some arrivals none the less. The British are now saying that which made me opposed to western MBT's being sent at all. They're now concerned the secret armor designed by British MoD is in question of being pirated by Russia and her ally China. I can't believe this wasn't their first thought before sending those "14" Challengers.
    For the record, the AH-64 apache is the only helicopter to have an entire tank battalion surrender to combat choppers. That too, was Iraq. The Apache squadrons hit the Iraqi tank battalion so hard they eventually opened the hatches and threw their hands in the air.

    • Bitchslapper316
      Bitchslapper316 4 months ago

      I'm not sure where you are getting your news. The challengers and abrams being sent are the export variants, they don't have the classified armor.

    • Daniel Martin
      Daniel Martin 4 months ago

      @Bitchslapper316 Any sane individual would hope they don't. I've no idea why it was reported that there was a concern the Challenger could have sensitive material aboard after the decision to send them was made. The Abrams, they say, are being equipped with something other than tungsten and uranium.
      Considering the M1A2 and the Challenger use the British crafted composite armor it doesn't make sense to send them into the field with classified material.
      However, there are other things about those tanks no one would want to fall into Russian or Chinese hands.

    • Bitchslapper316
      Bitchslapper316 4 months ago

      @Daniel Martin Big arms companies make military equipment with different variants. They all have an export variant that is approved by thier government that can be sold to other nations without giving up military secrets. If they send the non export variant they usually take parts off if it. As an example the Abrams being sent is the M1A2 export variant. It's not the newest model and it doesn't have the classified armor. Similar to what the Saudis had bought. It's still a potent tank but if it's captured it won't reveal any new information other nations don't already have. The same goes with the challenger. We can see examples of this with previous equipment sent. Some of the equipment taken out of military storage had parts taken off such as armor and electronics and replaced with the commerical versions.
      Additionally there probably isn't much about the newer versions that the Chinese and Russians don't already know about. Tanks are dispensable battle field assets and although some components may secret it's not intelligence that would change things on a large scale. Rare assets are where the secrets are at. A good example was a new Russian command and control vehicle the Ukrainians captured early in the war. That thing was probably shipped to the U.S and taken apart.

    • Daniel Martin
      Daniel Martin 4 months ago

      @Bitchslapper316 I'm fully aware of the variations betwixt export amenities.
      However, there are other things to consider. Like general performance, shortcomings, mechanics, all manner of engineering that one wouldn't necessarily assume need be classified but that the enemy may not have thought of. Battlefield performance could reveal previously unconsidered details that may be exploited or copied. It's not just about the classified stuff.

  • hon liong

    A few crucial questions:
    (1). Would the tanks be able to turn the war around significantly?
    (2). Would the war end, or already decided one way or other, before the tanks hit the ground,
    (3). Is America really serious about sending the Abrams tanks.
    (4). America election.
    (1). It is my belief that less than 150 of all tanks combined will be available. BUT that is the PLEDGE, and not metal on the ground yet. Hypes and spins are the stuff wars are made of, truths and reality are the casualties. Analysts and military talked up the strengths of the tanks, yet hardly mentioned the weaknesses. Like I said earlier, it is about hypes and spins.
    (2). Russia knows that now is the critical moment to make as much impact on the war. This will afford it more leverage if a negotiation does take place. Because the tanks won't be around for 6 months, if it gets itself in a winning position, America would be forced to reconsider its optimism of a win.
    (3). The Abrams tanks are really impressive on paper. It becomes even more impressive when those analysts get hold of them. But there are problems...
    **(a). a fuel guzzler,
    **(b). highly sophisticated, too cleaver for its own good if you like,
    **(c). It is very, very heavy, and
    **(d). More critically, its armors. While it's depleted Uranium armors make it harder to pierce, it is against the US export regulations. As I understand it, they are now replacing the depleted Uranium shields with conventional Tungsten plates. This then renders it not much better than the normal tanks with Tungsten plates. Hypes, or reality?
    (4). America wants to give the ruling party something to cheer about before the next election...a win. Well, winning is the Holy Grail America has yet to successful achieved. Its runs of losses scattered along the 4 decades sine WWII. The most recent one, the Afghan war, didn't give Biden much to do a song and dance about. So a win in Ukraine will certainly win the next election for the Democratic Party, but I am not certain that Biden will be jogging to the lectern to deliver his victory speech.
    So who will snatch the Holy Grail in this war? In the Cricket terminology, no one has yet hit a six, not even a four. Mostly ones and twos. Now America is using an Aluminum bat, hoping that it will hit a 6 and over the stadium roof. Ha ha. I would to see that.

    World War III Has Begun; How It Unfolds Depends on Us
    We think of the Russia-Ukraine war as a local conflict, but it is much more than that; it is a global war on multiple fronts. The war is not only a military conflict; it is also an economic war of attrition. With skyrocketing gas prices and shortage of staples, people all over the world are feeling the consequences of the war.
    This war is transforming the entire modus operandi of humanity. Since the dawn of time, we have been accustomed to living by the motto, “survival of the fittest.” By and large, the rule was that the strong determined the rules, and the rules were often abusive toward the weak. Now, it seems like a new mindset has set in: Wanting something and being strong enough to take it does not mean that the world will accept it.
    The war, therefore, is being fought on the inside no less, and perhaps more than on the outside. Our very makeup is changing from abusive to cooperative, from narcissistic to altruistic.
    It hurts, and it will not happen without a struggle, but it is irreversible. This is the path of our evolution toward the purpose of our creation-to encompass within us all of creation. To do that, we must come to care for it, just as a mother encompasses her child through her maternal love.
    The struggle to transition from our current uncaring and mean approach to all creations but ourselves, into wise and compassionate beings is called “the war of Gog and Magog” or Armageddon.
    Since the war is about our inner makeup, we can fight it within us. If we object to struggling with ourselves over who will rule-the ego or love-the physical reality will force us to choose love nonetheless. However, it will do so by hurting us in a very physical way.
    The war in Eastern Europe is nothing compared to what we might have to endure if we resist the process. The horrific descriptions of our sages and prophets hint at it, and we would not want to live through it.
    Alternatively, we can fight this war within us without firing a single bullet. The choice is in our hands. All we need is to continue in the same direction that nature is already leading us: toward connection. If we make an effort to care for one another, even though initially we don’t, then we are moving in the right direction. If we try to resolve conflicts not with guns or even legal battles, but by strengthening the care and friendship between us, then we are saving lives and sparing torments from countless people.
    In conclusion, let us try to rise above the hatred and see the human on the other side, who suffers too. Let us think that this war was given to us so we would think about each other more than we have so far. After all, were it not for this war, we would not notice one another. Now that it is here, we are no longer indifferent. Although our feelings our currently negative, now that we are aware of them, we can work on them together and turn them around. These are the wars of the Messiah who moshech [Hebrew: pulls] us out of the ego, and into mutual love.

    My opinion... Ukraine troops had already been training on these systems well b4 the announcement of western countries sending them... Ukraine and west allies know ahead of time that they were going to be sending these tanks especially b4 they announced it on the media so it would be foolish to think that this isn't taken into consideration... The Ukraine are probably already fully trained on the leopard 2 tanks from a month ago .. that's why Ukraine keeps getting the upper hand in these situations..

    So we're so afraid of the paper Russian bear, we have to feed tanks to Ukraine in itty bitty bites? Absurd. The Pentagon champion dithering team makes Team Dithering Germany look almost decisive. I am very concerned Putin is ramping up to get the drop on Ukraine before all these battlefield enhancements come on line. The other dithering over fighter jets by all the major players is pathetic. Two steps forward, one back is expecting Ukraine to fend off a monster one handed, only partly mechanized, and a lack of fighter air cover. WE WOULD NOT SEND OUR TROOPS.INTI MAJOR ACTION WITHOUT ALL THE Stuff AN ARMORED BRIGADE NEEDS, BUT EXPECT UKRAINE TO WORK A MIRACLE? Are we secretly hoping to just put on a good show against Moscow but not go in for the kill to finish off his old school imperiaIst land grab, forcing Ukraine to negotiate before all their troops die! UK news reporting that their military advisors are shocked to find there is a very high rate of suicides in Ukraine military. I don't think they have enough people under arms to rotate them from front lines to rest and regroup. They of sheer necessity are being worked in traumatic circumstances, constant shelling until they literally kill themselves before the Russians do! It would not be anywhere near this bad for Ukrainian troops if we all put our ducks in a row timely, putting together the whole kit needed to put forward armored brigades BEFORE they are needed, not oh this is what Ukraine will need for big counter offense WHEN IT IS ALMOST HERE and many promised components won't be there till summer or late '23! Maybe Ukraine can still win hobbled like this but I doubt it. Vlad is out to flood the field with vast multiple waves of troops to squander Ukrainian ammo, and overwhelm their positions.Vlad could still win with his shambolic, drunk, disorganized threadbare military, and that keeps me up at night! USA and NATO, GET YOUR s*** together and ducks in a row. Stop shooting yourselves in the foot, for when you do, Ukraine gets shot in
    the head!!!

    Abrams won't reach Ukraine until 2024. But that's not the point - for the short term needs, western countries will simply empty their aresenals of oldr soviet tanks, and then supply Leopards and Challengers in time for the next Ukrainian offensive.
    So, what's teh point with the Abrams? The point is that this is a commitment to long-term support. The US has close to endless supplies of Abrams tanks, spares, and munitions, and this move leaves no doubt about US intentions and capacity to support Ukraine in the future, for decades, if needed. And that's very, very, significant!
    Now, it seems like the same will be the case with fighter jets. France and Sweden, for instance, will probably be the first to deliver jets to Ukraine. Gripen or Mirage. But for the long run, only F-16 will do, again, with virtually endless stocks and supplies, and a commitment to stay the distance, regardless of how long that may be.

    Sending main battle tanks and IFVs without air support will be like what the Ukrainians did to Russia at the beginning of the war with javelin type shoulder fired missiles.
    Russia's Kornet shoulder fired anti-tank missiles will decimate many many tanks in IFVs sent by NATO allies without F-16 air support.
    What NATO has been doing is dribbling weapons to Ukraine and if they don't get their act together this war will be over for all intents and purposes as Russia solidifies its grip on the regions it has taken. Otherwise it will take 10 times more effort to dig them out of those regions.
    Wake up nato.

      The reverse can be true too. Russia can flip this and do the same with the main battle tanks and IFVs if Ukrainians don't have it f-16s and air support.

      @Rxonmymind Your comment is solid but may I add something my friend ? Russia does not have the technology to manufacture modern tanks ! It's Armata that we never see in battle uses anti penetration software to protect the tank from enemy fire as it does not have the composite armor that modern tanks have . It relies on protection by shooting down projectiles NOT the western composite armor that bounces off Sabot rounds like a rock .

    Ukraine has the upper hand in attritional strategy, because their need to make gains is superceded by inflicting as many casualties on Russian forces as they possibly can - Moscow has evidently decided they will ‘take the Donbas’ but more likely it’s ‘taking losses in the Donbas.’ If enough losses are evident, the Russian military will then be obliged to cede territory as they have done in losing three major battles: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kherson. Not much has changed, except putting Patriot missile arteries gives N.A.T.O. a forward position they could not possibly manage before the conflict began.

The challengers are already in Ukraine as are some Leos. they are now in the process of getting the logistics and supplies in situ . Training on the challengers 4 weeks. with one week all ready complete. Tankers have been training on Leos in Poland for the last 2 weeks, 3 weeks remaining.

      The Russian spring offensive started. What really happened is the west gave Russia all of winter to regroup, rearm, and train new recruits without threat of significantly offensive weapons being sent to Ukraine. The war went onto 'freeze' as you might say. Russia now has its forces ready for another offensive push, while meanwhile the west is now just starting to talk tanks. To make any real difference they should of had Ukraine train on these during the winter and be ready to operate now, along with training on F 16's. If they actually thought ahead and really wanted Ukraine to win, Ukraine would be receiving fighter jets and tanks today when it matters

    Another joke. I listened to to a tank commander that was in Iraq. He said the Abrams took out all the Iraq's tanks without a problem. With further research he notes that the Iraq's when not trained using them. To make matters worse he then says we could have used all the Iraq's tanks and let the Iraq's use our Abrams and the results would have been the same. Abrams destroyed. It really just goes to show if you do not know how to use what you have you can not win. Well trained need the honors. I do not see this happening in Ukraine.

    Hmmm How do we know those tanks are not in Ukraine already waiting for the Russian Push? Which means they must mass troops and equipment like they always do. Poor leadership and training. Ukraine is receiving the longer range weapons now. When they are gathered to make that push Ukraine will know from Western Satellite coverage and target it with Artillery massed artillery. Ukraine is expecting a Suicide attempt by Russian forces to do an offensive break out. They are ready, and waiting for that suicide run. Expecting an attack from Belarus also, ready and waiting for the rats to spring the traps. Russian planes want fly, or they die in Ukraine air space. But Ukraine can fly, in it's own air space limited but can. For a Russian breakout a concertation of MANPADS are on the front for sure, and Russian tanks and armor want get far. Infantry pulsed up already for that Suicide run. Also a second line of defense full of MANPADS for any Armor that was not hit in the initial breakout. I also expect a Division to enter Kherson Oblast while Russia is doing its thing In Donetsk, and have weakened it's forces in Kherson Oblast, and that Division shoots it's way through to SEA of AZOV cutting the Russian forces in Half, and taking control of Melitopol. Being successful, they send in another division to hold that corridor open. They just closed Crimea off from resupply except by Kerch Bridge.
