Zelensky: I can’t judge the role of Abrams tanks on the battlefield, because we have few of them

The head of the Kyiv regime confirmed that Ukraine had received a shipment of American tanks Abrams. Speaking with reporters from African media, Zelensky said that the Abrams had indeed already been delivered to Ukraine. At the same time, he made several significant remarks.

Zelensky:



Fortunately or unfortunately, we have many different tanks. And Abrams is no exception. This is a good tank, but the problem is that we don't have enough of them.

According to the head of the Kiev regime, he hopes to further deepen cooperation with Western partners to increase the volume of supplies of such tanks, but for now he states the fact that “it is generally difficult to judge what role Abrams tanks play on the battlefield.”

Zelensky:

I can't judge this because there are very few of these tanks.

Let us recall that earlier the United States promised to supply several batches of its Abrams, the first of which, according to some sources, included 10, according to others, 14 units. Previously, there was evidence that American tanks were delivered to Ukraine, but there was no evidence that they were thrown into battle.

The President of Ukraine did not discuss how much the supply of Leopard and Challenger tanks helps the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The British, we recall, supplied Kyiv with 14 of their tanks. At least two of them were destroyed by Russian troops during the battle. The number of destroyed Leopards in various modifications is in the dozens.

      It sounds like a mockery of the sponsor. After all, the same thing could have been said much more diplomatically. However, I am sure that the sponsors will pretend that they did not hear anything, and if they heard, they did not understand. Although in reality they both hear and understand.

        Zelensky is a shitty politician, he’s also an actor. He knows how to play to an audience, but he often forgets to say the right words :)

          So now politics has turned into a show!
          The series "Black Mirror" season 2 2013 episode 6:
          A comedian uses computer technology to bring Waldo the Bear to life in real time as he makes fun of local politicians when his toy character suddenly finds himself embroiled in an upcoming election, running for Prime Minister of Great Britain. And wins them. Neither the comedian himself nor, especially, his entourage can stop at the right moment.
          Interestingly, according to the film, this leads to a chain reaction of the establishment of fascist dictatorships throughout the world.
          Hmm... Is this foresight or a plan?

      How they praised the German “Leopard”, and there were and continue to be more American ones, but “for some reason” they do not help turn the situation around. Therefore, no matter how much you give to Kyiv, in the end everything will turn into dust. But just in case, they are keeping them in the rear for now, probably for a “rainy day.”

        aber „aus irgendeinem Grund“ tragen sie nicht dazu bei, die Situation zu ändern.


        It's about prestige and business. Many Leopard 2 tanks were destroyed, and some were destroyed by cheap drones from a hardware store. lol And this was during his first real combat mission. The Leopard 2 tank, like the TIGER tank, is just a myth.
        And how was the German Leopard tank praised and promoted as one of the best tanks, even now?
        what a joke for Rheinmetall. embarrassment!
        Would you buy another Leopard tank now?
        The United States does not want such an embarrassment; they are protecting their military industry.

          During the Iraq War of 2003-2011, by 2006, 34 tanks were completely destroyed, and nine (!!!) were sent back to the US for major repairs. All the media savored the footage of the shot down Abrams... And, somehow, there was no embarrassment...
          They will buy Abrams, Leopards, and Challengers! Selling weapons is not selling the best tank, it is selling a “roof”. Policy...

      We need more gold)) They are of no use in the rear, they are afraid to throw them to the front line. The tank is not bad, but for any tricky bolt there is a key, especially if some of the systems have been removed.

        The tank is not bad,
        ...just very bad....suffice it to note that at the NATO tank competitions he outright lost not only to Leo 2 a and to the challenge...and the time in battle these two showed was not high...therefore something outstanding from Abra no reason to wait

        Abosramtsy is a tank destroyer with a turret, not a tank, a merkava... it's an armored personnel carrier based on a tank. All the armor is in the forehead, and then the corton without the slightest heading angles. On our last 90 ticks, even with non-course headings, the engine was covered, etc. Yes, there are few of them, but there will be more than the junk that the states gave them

          ..the Merkava is most likely an extremely heavy infantry fighting vehicle...and not everything is in order with its forehead...the front engine provides
          technological hatches, openings for air intake, cooling and exhaust reduce the strength of the seal... fire with the engine running only at certain degrees from the course, otherwise the haze does not provide accuracy

            Yes, it has its own specifics, but in the desert there is essentially a lot of haze... The mech emnip there is generally armored in a separate capsule, but there it is also essentially homogeneous. If you look at the control panel on YouTube, yes... kerasin really helps against the rays and the tanks that are behind the engine can save + spaced out. Well, again, the Merkava was created for a local theater of operations and most likely it cannot be hit head-on with beams due to the defocusing of the jet. But it has nothing to do with kinetics... there is something to oppose to the absolutist. Hamas does not have tanks and artillery... but let’s remember 08.08.08 when the Georgians were completely burned with the same rays, that they eventually retreated with losses. My friend was more or less aware of what happened there in southern Tskhinvali, but he was a GRU in the 135th regiment was attached...in the end they did not engage in battle. But the fact is that due to laxity of the Georgians, they were never able to capture and by the evening they retreated to the borders

      That’s it, the world is in vain, but the West has already supplied the Nazis with enough armored vehicles, now the planes will be brought up, and so on, so on.
      The longer it takes, the more difficult it will be to break the neck of the Nazi hydra in Ukraine.

        During WWI, there were no military operations at all on German territory. The fronts passed through France/Belgium and the Republic of Ingushetia. And then, BAM! and everything fell apart...

      The task was to throw a die. So that Europe does not supply its tanks alone.
      In the end, of course, 10 pieces of weather do not play. But Europe was pushed, which was what was required.

      I wonder what African countries are interested in Ukraine and especially some Abrams?

      Ukrainian media write that media from Angola, Botswana, Tunisia, the Republic of Guinea, Kenya, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, and Zambia were represented at the meeting.

      Or maybe it was African students who were unable to leave Ukraine?
