Footage of Ukrainian military training on American Abrams tanks appeared

Footage appeared on the network, which depicted the training in the United States of the Ukrainian military to control the American tanks M1A2 Abrams.

In the video, the tanks move around the field and work out various maneuvers.

Earlier, a Pentagon spokesman said that the US army is implementing a plan to send M1 Abrams tanks to the Ukrainian army.

At the end of February this year, US Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth said that the US armed forces were not able to deliver tanks to Ukraine in the coming months. According to her, military equipment will arrive in Ukraine no earlier than the end of the year. However, due to the fact that it was decided to deliver tanks to Ukraine from the stocks of the American army, and not after their production, it is assumed that the delivery time will be less than the originally announced one and a half to two years.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has lamented that if American Abrams tanks arrive in Ukraine at the end of this summer, it may be "too late".

In January of this year, US President Joe Biden approved the supply of M1 Abrams main battle tanks to the Ukrainian army, and also allowed the re-export of this military equipment from other countries. In total, 31 American tanks are supposed to be transferred to Ukraine.

American Abrams tanks are in service with about fifteen countries around the world, but they are difficult to operate and require large amounts of fuel that is non-standard for most tanks in the world. The maintenance of such tanks is considered to be the most expensive option among all modern tanks.

    And what, the psheks don’t have abrashek, training grounds, instructors? Drag the N-number of "cadets" across the ocean? If training is going on, then it is with Psheks or Germans.

      How many of these future dead will take away our souls with the help of the Pendos technology before the death? Don't get carried away with optimism. The war is gaining momentum, and our powerful managers are still at ease.

    Of course, I'm not a tanker, I could be wrong, but it caught my eye that in the video of the "Abrams" they hold the gun barrel high when moving. This is probably a feature of off-road driving, which the tankers of our Soviet tank school are accustomed to. As a rule, NATO in motion keep the barrel on the stabilizer, or on the marching stop, almost parallel to the ground. Maybe I'm wrong? I will be glad to comment from an expert.

      They don’t use a stabilizer on the march, the driver, as a rule, is in the marching position (the head sticks out), the gun is on the stop, the turret is on the stopper, on tactics - the driver is in combat, the gun and the turret are in the stowed position (on the stops), the commander works through his "turret ". The stabilizer works at the firing range, everything is grown-up.

    "Epic" shots I think (censored) out of 95 will make a blockbuster cooler than "Fury", and yes, I agree with Uprun, why drag a group in striped swimsuits across the ocean when, roughly speaking, everything is 200 km away, and tanks and instructors and training grounds.

      Many. Immediately, many are sure that Negroes and Polish mercenaries are fighting against us on Western military equipment.
      People have been told for so many years what xoxls are stupid and cowardly saloed selyuks that many are still convinced that xoxls can twist the tails of bulls, and not Abrams manage.

    something this "performance" with the preparation of piglets for slaughter reminded me of the Hollywood film "The Hunger Games" - where plebeian youths were prepared for "slaughter" - for the FUN of the patricians !!!

    A large American military training ground somewhere near the Polish border. The Poles will not only train them, but they will also fill the tanks and wipe the windows.

    The main thing is to learn how to leave the tank in order to stay alive.
