American media: The United States transferred to the Ukrainian Armed Forces at least one Assault Breacher mine clearing vehicle based on the Abrams tank to break through the Russian defense line
The US Department of Defense, without officially announcing it, has transferred at least one Assault Breacher armored mine clearance vehicle to the Ukrainian armed forces. American columnist for The Forbes David Ax reported this.
The Assault Breacher is considered the "most powerful" engineering vehicle in the US military. The M1150 Assault Breacher Vehicle is designed to clear paths for troops and military equipment through minefields. These vehicles were first used in combat on December 3, 2009, during a raid by American Marines in Helmand Province in Afghanistan.
It is noteworthy that the American authorities classified the transferred vehicles as “mine clearance equipment.” These mine clearance engineering vehicles were not included in the official lists of US military assistance published by the Pentagon.
Let us note that yesterday the United States transferred another package of military assistance to Ukraine totaling $125 million. It is interesting that just a day earlier Washington was going to transfer military aid worth $425 million to Kiev, but within a day something in the plans of the American administration changed, and as a result, the cost of the transferred package turned out to be $300 million less than expected.
The White House admitted that the United States is running out of funds that provide military assistance to Ukraine. The Republican-majority House of Representatives is already blocking further funding for Kyiv, despite attempts by President Joe Biden and his administration to push through aid to Ukraine in the same package as support for Israel.
