American heavy equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is shown in impassable Ukrainian mud

Autumn in Ukraine, as in the southern regions of Russia, is mud and mud on the roads. In the current conditions of hostilities, troops have to operate in rural areas, where there are often simply no roads. Almost continuous rains wash away dirt roads in rural areas and in small towns.

So, difficult times have come for the Ukrainian army, especially considering that today a significant part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine units move on Western-made equipment. American cars get stuck in the mud, with difficulty overcoming natural obstacles.



At the same time, our troops have similar problems. Dirt is the same for everyone. True, Soviet-style equipment was designed taking into account possible hostilities on viscous, soggy soil.

Military correspondents publish photos of equipment of the Ukrainian army. They are wearing HMMWV vehicles and American-made M113 armored personnel carriers, which are currently used by units of the Ukrainian ground forces. It can be seen that the cars hardly make their way through the impassable mud of Ukrainian country roads.

In addition, an American M58 MICLIC demining system was also spotted in the area of ​​confrontation between Ukrainian and Russian troops. It is designed to make passages in minefields in an explosive way. In some ways, its principle of operation is reminiscent of the UR-77 Meteorite, a Soviet self-propelled demining machine. That is, with its help, during the clash, "moves" are made in the minefields of the enemy.


It is difficult to say how much such equipment Ukraine has already received from the United States and its allies in Europe. But there is no doubt that many HMMWVs and M113s have already died in the steppes of Ukraine, having been destroyed by Russian troops. Now, cars stuck in the mud will be added to them. Some of them have to be abandoned by the Ukrainian military in order not to waste precious time on their evacuation.

          Hundreds of pieces of equipment of our steel from trophies after getting stuck in the mud

          In order for "hundreds" of stuck equipment to become trophies, these hundreds should be stuck near the front shortly before the offensive.
          And there have been no major offensive operations recently. Both sides.

      No "dirt" was needed to blow the latest T-90 with bells and whistles. And now the "guards" generally have an iron excuse. "Why did they abandon 10 tanks" - "So the rain has passed." And now the "dirt" is not far away. For some reason, Ukrainians do not complain. I liked the photo where the excavator digs out the tank. And who’s stopping the “guardsmen from taking shovels in their hands, digging them dry, calling an ARV with a winch and pulling the front rollers onto dry ground.

        Jews don't really use M113 on the first line. They make heavy armored personnel carriers at the tank base, including the Merkava base for 70 tons.

        But, frankly, few people have such armored personnel carriers. The Russian Federation, for example, does not have such.

            I agree that ours are well studying other people's experience, but the experience of the war with the Palestinians is not very useful to us .... it is precisely the lack of understanding with whom we will have to fight, at what intensity and at what theater of operations that does not allow us to produce the necessary weapons in advance. Therefore, they plan "from the defense" of their territory.

      According to the Germans themselves, they sent the tanker forward in front of the Tiger, and if a person fell into the ground, then the Tiger would not be able to pass there either. Only it seemed that they put the second person on their shoulders - the specific pressure of the Tiger on the ground was equal to the weight of 1.5 human specific pressure. 70 years have passed - but they did not draw conclusions, they still send a person forward))))

      The Abrams will get stuck exactly where our Teshki are. Their pressure on the ground is approximately the same, the specific power of the Abrams

          It is a masterpiece. They wrote the characteristics of the T-80U, instead of the T-80 or the Ukrainian T-80UD (with 6TD-1, the gain is 21,7). They gave an example of one of the rarest tanks in our army. Can you compare with T-62, T-73A / B / B3 (mod 2011/2014), T-90A? They form the main fleet of our equipment. T-80U is an extremely rare bird. T-90M and T-72B3 (sample 2016) are still found, they are somehow close in mobility to M1A1 / M1A2 (there are 4000 of them in storage).
          The fact that you can’t guarantee it became clear from the first lines, and the fact that you decided to do something “suddenly” is also visible.
          So for reference.
          Specific power, l. s./t: T-64A = 18; T-72B = 19; T-80 = 23,5; T-80U = 27,1; T-90A = 21,5; T-90M = 23,5; M1A2 SEP = 23,8; 2A6M = 24.

        I will tell you a little secret, our equipment also does not like waterlogged soil. A lot depends on the qualifications of the driver. However, the SU-90 was kept on the border with China until the beginning of the 100s. The patency of these self-propelled guns due to the different design of the caterpillar in swampy terrain was higher than that of the T-55.

        A very simple explanation of what you saw with your own eyes.

        For cross-country ability, a more important parameter is the specific pressure on the ground, and not the specific power.
        And with the specific pressure on the ground, all Western equipment is very bad.))))

          Kilogram per centimeter +/- 20%. And not in the western, but in any, except for a specialized swamp.

        And who said that there were T-64A?
        Well, who is to blame for us, that they also abandoned the turbine ..... now there is no use for the longer range of diesel tanks. And from "suitcases" - we rape everything B-2.

        Power density,

        Are you looking forward to hydroplaning? lol . Specific power characterizes the ability of equipment to quickly accelerate, and not patency. For better cross-country ability, high ground clearance and low specific pressure are needed. Dope tanks and so enough. Although 64s, due to the low torque of "suitcases", require higher qualifications from mechanical drivers, Maybe that's why they sat down earlier.

    Well, then, while they got stuck in the mud, they had to be covered with artillery and aircraft until they had no maneuver!

      So then it was necessary to cover them in bulk when they went to the front! There were no funds for wholesale destruction, but there were heaps of funds for a single defeat? Some strange mathematics in this war. Derailing a train or bombing a bridge is expensive. And to wet at the front by the piece, that's it!

    I look at static images and see how they are driving and screaming "we're stuck! we're stuck." No, I'm not a telepath.
    Many people can not get stuck in such shit laughing

    The article is about nothing, it is clear that it works both ways. Marshal Mud vs. Everyone

    Interestingly, Russia uses temporary road complexes there, which it once boasted of or is again prohibited?

    The more often our news shows how Americans, Poles, Ukrainians, along with their equipment, get stuck and become helpless, the less faith our media has.
    From the cries that "we are the strongest in the world," the nephew of the horns will not be added.

    There is only one mud for everyone, only American equipment, more and more on the asphalt of Europe, but on the sand of the Middle East I rode, but I never had a chance to ride on our mud. Everything happens sometime for the first time. And last...

    Articles like this are both funny and sad. Reminiscent of Alekseev's children's fairy tales about the war.
    The technique of the enemy is bad, it gets stuck in the mud, breaks ...
    And ours, on the contrary, is the best. How magical.
    Only the reality is completely different. Not so fabulous.

    I remember a review of H1 Hummers in Autopilot magazine in the shaggy years. They were driven at our tank range and the cross-country ability was rated as excellent. M113 - tracked. But all sorts of MRAPs - yes, these are hard.

    It was not about the bobbin - ........ I was sitting in the cab. That's why we don't build good roads because there are Urals and Kamaz trucks. I saw the Urals in the tundra. This is a song. And Btr -80 in general with four bridges and all leading ....

    What young and healthy guys in the photo. It is a pity that Russia did not return Ukraine to the all-Russian field in a timely manner. So would these guys work or serve in the interests of our country

    What this article is about, I have no idea.
    The title suggests an analysis of the shortcomings of American technology, or at least a comparison with ours.
