It could be interesting if this chart covered the number of tanks lost meaning as to captured to be used by opponents ,there are claims for instance that the Ukrainian army is reusing hundreds of captured tanks and other equipment , and that Russia is the largest foreign supplier (unwilling) of tanks and other equipment to Ukraine , a possible cause of some of these tanks being captured are they run out of fuel ,not all tanks have the same fuel the T-80 being the only Russian tank to be using a gas turbine ,I've only seen film of one t-90 captured and was wondering if the effects of sanctions on these more modern tanks are having an effect on their maintenance and availability or even if these tanks are being held backAn interesting chart of Russian MBT losses in Ukraine. If these losses are indicative, it shows that newer T-90s are significantly more survivable then older tank types. Of course this doesn't account for the low numbers of T-90s being used not just relative to the older tanks (that's accounted for by the numbers being relative to their own fleet size) but low numbers used relative to their own fleet size. I.e. far more of the T-72B3M and T-80BVM fleet were used then the T-90A or the T-90M. I'm also not sure the totals of 67 T-90Ms are accurate. I suspect there's closer to 100 of them by now.
Подъехала аналитика Oryx по уничтоженным танкам ВС РФ. Согласно ей, РФ потеряла около 40% танков (относительно оценки Military Balance 2022), причём больше потерь понесли старые модификации - Т-72Б и Т-80БВ. Новых Т-80БВМ и Т-90 потеряно меньше всего, Т-72Б3 где-то посередине. Собственно, тут...t.me
