AP: American Abrams tanks were removed from the front line and moved to the rear of the Ukrainian army

American Tanks Abrams, which are in service with the Ukrainian army, have been withdrawn to the rear and are no longer involved in combat operations. This decision was made due to large losses in a relatively short period of time. The Associated Press reports this with reference to American military officials.

The command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was forced to remove American Abrams tanks from the front line and move them to the rear due to heavy losses, including from Russian drones. Now the Americans will, together with the Ukrainians, develop new tactics for using tanks in order to reduce, and in the future eliminate, the losses of American armored vehicles. In general, Abrams will no longer appear on the battlefield in the near future.



The tanks have now been withdrawn from the front line, and the United States will work with the Ukrainians to change tactics, said Adm. Christopher Grady, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a third defense official, who confirmed the move on condition of anonymity.

- writes the American edition.

According to one of the American military personnel, who wished to remain anonymous, the Ukrainian military is not able to protect American tanks from Russian drones. Drum activity drones led to the fact that the possibility of using Abrams tanks in open areas disappeared.

American tanks were in service with the 47th separate mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, which was sent to the Avdeevskoye direction to prevent a breakthrough by Russian troops. The brigade fought in the Berdychi area, where in a relatively short period of time it lost about seven Abrams tanks. The Western press cites similar figures, talking about five destroyed and two damaged American tanks.

        That’s exactly how it is with the Amers.
        They raked out the negro-infector and other used Johns from the smoking Abramets, dragged this “iron kaput” to the repair base, and there were NO LOSSES.
        A movie like “the fall of the black hoopoe” is also about this (and it doesn’t matter that saving an awesome report to the general killed even more “hoopoes” and Johns).

    This was to be expected. At first they didn’t enter the LBS, preparing for something unknown, then they decided and, as part of the 47 OMB, they rushed forward. Now, having looked at the results and listened to American moral teachings, we decided to hide it out of harm’s way again. This means that the remnants of the 47th OMB, which was considered the best, trained exclusively according to NATO standards, and received the nickname “Yankees” in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, will also be taken to the rear and hidden? If so, then the warriors were lucky.

      Details of the defeat of the 47th Mechanized Infantry Brigade "Magura". Zahisnikov from the 47th Mechanized Brigade "Magura" was destroyed not only by Russian pilots, but also by Ukrainian drone pilots during Operation Friendly Fire. This is interesting because the brigade is directly subordinate to the Pentagon and is fully supported by the US Department of Defense according to wartime standards. Such information can be gleaned from the soldiers’ forums of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where “Magurites” are called Yankees.

      . In the Avdeevsky direction, the “X-leaders” from the “Center” group of troops burned to the ground with the “Lancet” another stars-and-stripes tank, which in the Ukrovermacht received the “Abrash” drive. “We tracked Abrams for three days. ... “on the day of combat use, we took off very early and found the target. We approached the target downwind and, fortunately, hit it. Although our work was long and painstaking, it brought results.” The footage shows the detonation of the tank's ammunition.


      “Of course, the already exhausted 47th was hastily returned back, and was forced to pay in blood for another failure at the level of security and command,” write the experts of the Ukrainian News Agency. ... The “Heroes” on the “Bradley” tried to go back at high speed, but the Russian group of troops “Center” rushed forward with the VKS: Su-30 and Su-35, dominating the air, launched direct air strikes on the advancing column.
      In addition, Ukrainian drone operators used their heavy drones with MANPADS to inflict friendly fire on the returning fighters, having received inaccurate panic information about the capture of the village center by assault troops of the Russian Armed Forces.
      After the leadership of the Magura brigade became aware of the friendly fire, the independent warriors suffered heavy losses and were forced to retreat. Our soldiers immediately took their place. ... When the descent into Novobakhmutovka began, Su-25s and Ka-52s of the Russian Aerospace Forces pursued the Magurites at low altitude, increasing damage and wreaking havoc, thereby clearing the way for our units. Due to panic and chaos in the administration, this settlement was surrendered in the conditions of the “massacre” of Ukrainian soldiers by Russian attack aircraft. ... According to the few Magurites who survived the “Ocheretinsk meat grinder,” “they ended up in hell.”

    The Abrams fall on the Donetsk front creates a decline in the reputation of the much-advertised Abrams tanks on the arms market, who will buy them after this. So they made a knight's move.

    No matter how misguided it turns out to be. Why do they openly say that there are no more tanks there? It would be more logical, on the contrary, to hide this in order to slow down our people, who would be afraid of them. Something is wrong here. Or the desire to promote their “Instagrams” has already completely crossed all reasonable boundaries and no one cares about “military secrets”.

    tanks have been withdrawn from the front line, and the US will work with the Ukrainians to change tactics

    There is a meeting on Friday with the regiment commander.
    Commander: Tomorrow we’re going fishing, we’ll take 6 each. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
    Political officer: When they took 6 at a time, they lost the bus. We take 5.
    Chief of Staff: When they took 5, they lost the political officer. We take 4
    Zampotyl: When they took 4 at a time, they lost the networks. We take 3.
    Commander: So, 6 each. We don’t take the political officer and the network, we don’t get off the bus!!!

    This is how we have to act: weld the grill, bury the tanks on the Polish border, the crews don’t leave the barracks...
