German edition: American Abrams tanks supplied to Ukraine will not affect the course of hostilities in any way
USA supplied Ukraine Tanks Abrams, but they will not affect the fighting in any way, and relying on American armored vehicles will not work. The author of an article published in the newspaper Münchner Merkur warns about this.
The Americans supplied Kyiv with 31 Abrams tanks, claiming that they were designed to break through Russian defenses, but the reality is that this tank is not suitable for operations in the Ukrainian theater of operations. First of all, because of its characteristics. According to the author of the article, it is too heavy, requires very good and competent maintenance, as well as special fuel, and a lot.
- the article says.
The tank is designed for combined attacks, but Abrams alone cannot win the war, especially since sending them into battle requires lengthy training. In addition, the Americans delivered the tanks too late and they were unable to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the counter-offensive. And no one will use American tanks in autumn mud conditions.
In general, the tanks were delivered late, and they are capricious and heavy, and they are unlikely to be able to help the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the war with Russia. In Kyiv, they also do not have much hope for the American Abrams, stating that they will not survive long on the battlefield; the Armed Forces of Ukraine have experience in the participation of Western armored vehicles. German and British tanks were already burning in the fields of Ukraine, it’s time for American ones too. Moreover, the soldiers of the Russian Armed Forces have long wanted to “get acquainted” with the overseas guest.
