    Fun fact. The Abrams and Leopard 2 started life as a German-American joint project - MBT70 - before they scrapped it for technical, cost and requirement reasons. But the tech was used to develop the Leopard 2 and the US later used the general gun. So the two tanks are cousins.

  • TRE45ON is Bat5hit Crazy by Ulysees S. Grant*SS$!

    The Bradley has already proven itself against Soviet armor. More T-72s were destroyed by Bradleys during the Gulf War than by Abrams tanks. In the Battle of 73 Easting, the Bradley proved itself more than a match for T-72s and BMPs. The TOW missiles are highly effective against tanks, and the autocannon is highly effective against trucks and BMPs.

      No. Bradleys and Abrams were designed to fight the Soviet military. So they are now literally being prepared to do the job they were designed to do.

      @Shar FA.2 I doubt any T-72 is "lightyears" ahead of another T-72. It is still an ancient tank design, which is utter rubbish.

    • Shar FA.2

      US had air superiority, much better trained crews, huge technological advantages and the state of the Iraqi army was miserable, not to mention the T-72's Iraq had were downgraded versions of already downgraded T-72M export versions which were built in 1979 originally.
      Even the most dogwater tanks Russia uses are T-72B's which are lightyears ahead of the T-72M, neither side has air superiority and Russia has a massive artillery advantage.
      At the end of the day it all comes down to how the Ukrainians use them.

    Air power, and ground forces compliment each other in the battlefield. Would these generals deny that? It’s not a case of Ukraine needing tanks then needing even more stuff. It’s a case of functional proxy war vs. halfassed proxy war.

      It is not just about having the tanks. It is about operating them effectively and then comes services and repair. It seems like these tanks will be one-time-use equipment on the battlefield. Imagine bringing Abram tanks to Ukraine’s east front and then take them back to Poland for service and repair. Not to mention that these tanks will get stuck in Ukrainian mud, because they are quite heavy. Eventually, Ukrainians will lose more tanks than they get. There is only one solution and it is for NATO and the US to directly deploy their troops on the battlefield and fight Russia face to face, which they are too scared to do. It will be the beginning of WWIII and the end of civilization on earth. In such an eventually, NATO will lose greatly. Surely, Russia will be totally destroyed but so will every 30 NATO member state.

      @ian A trap is when you force the enemy to send all of their reserves they were building up for a counteroffensive into a city thats about to be encircled and has one small road left driving into it.
      Ukraine has done masterful operations like in the North and Kharkiv, but Bakhmut seems more like a massive blunder every day that goes by.

      @Hecubus Russia is not fighting Ukraine, its fighting Nato. If this was simply a fight between Russia and Ukraine it would have ended long ago and u know it. Nato is give Ukraine, Financial support, logistical support, military aid and weapons, Intelligence and training. That makes a huge difference in any war. Having said that l do believe Ukraine has the right to defend itself just as Russia has the right to fight for its interests. Lastly l dnt see either Ukraine or Russia winning this war, dialogue is the only solution to ending the war.

    kristinaF54 Month ago

    I think combat drones remotely-controlled by a human with manoeuvres augmented by autonomy should be what Ukraine could used better than piloted fighter jets. The time it takes to train pilots and the cost involved is nullified the instant the plane is taken out with surface-to-air or air-to-air missiles. But if they flew military-grade combat drones then the timeframe for training is less and the operators wouldn't be killed if the drone was shot and destroyed.

    The Abrams were merely to get Germany to release the Leopards. Little more. The numbers promised are relatively low in the grand scheme, transport is much more involved and maintenance / logistics is a nightmare. Abrams may simply be the Russian "undertaker" after the Leopards, Bradley's and other AFV's do the job this Spring and Summer.

      Ukrainians have shown that they can learn new weaponry fast. Also they sent tankers to be trained, so they only need to learn to use the tank. Not how to be a crew, tactics or anything else.

    • Alex C
      Alex C Month ago

      @Pikkabuu Two points - 1. The tanks could be there on Thursday and it wouldn’t make a bit of difference. It takes well over a year to train a tank crew on an Abrams and have them be an effective member of a combined arms unit. 2. The Abrams that will be sent at some indeterminate point in the future (most likely no earlier than the autumn) will be completely stripped of the advanced armor, comms, and targeting systems that makes them effective against modern MBTs. Russian T90s will wreak havoc on any armor that shows its muzzle, especially if driven by a hastily trained Uke team.

      Apparently you cannot even understand simple English. The tanks weren't supposed to come in in weeks! He literally says "Spring and Summer". As for the Ukrainian plans, they are the long term plans and not the plans of the last few weeks! In fact the only bit about the short term plans HAS happened as the Ukrainians have held their lines and the Russians have only made small advances.
      So it isn't the Team Ukraine which is coping here...

    The Abrams that are being sent aren't from US stock piles, they are different and being built right now. This is why it will take months, some say maybe a year, to get to Ukraine. If they were real US tanks from our stock piles they would be there sooner with the US superior logistics. And the Leopard 2s are the same ones that were being knocked out in Syria. Send them the Leopard 5s instead and the real American Abrams.

      @Tio Swift yeah it’s fascinating. If memory serves the bomb was armed but didn’t go off due to a malfunction. There are documentaries about it and other nuclear mishaps, there’s been more than you’d want to know lol.

      @Tio Swift 1961 Goldsboro B52 crash. The military accidentally dropped one or two nukes in North Carolina. They didn’t go off but they did drop them.

      Russia has something called integrated air defense systems and that A 10 would be flying scrap metal before it even sniffed the convoy. I know Americans get excited about what you did to Iraq, but Russia is not Iraq.

      @newuser Yes I clearly know the difference between NATO and the EU. The USA is in NATO and not the EU which was the differentiating factor if you didn't notice. Furthermore, the amount of money you have put towards any war and the amount of men you have sacrificed has been miniscule to the amount the Americans have paid

    At 2:16 he speaks of attacking Crimea. This is why Crimea wanted to get away. The Ukrainian government had been neglecting and attacking places that were ostensibly a part of Ukraine. Surely this only confirms that we are supporting the wrong side in this conflict. Anyone who continually seeks to escalate a war and destroy the lives of more and more and more people should be held to account for that?

      I actually agree with this. You can get 100 GLSDBs for 1 ATACMS missile with a similar range and accuracy. I wonder about their relative susceptibility to air defense though...
