Russia Is Down To Using Ancient Tanks to Fight Ukraine – 19FortyFive

T-62 in Ukraine The T-62M is a Soviet main battle tank introduced in 1961 – and while there have been variants of the tank introduced over the last sixty years, many of those seen on the battlefield in Ukraine have not had sufficient upgrades to protect them against more modern ammunition and missile technology.

It means that the tanks are particularly vulnerable to the NATO-standard missile systems, including HIMARS, gifted to Ukraine by the United States and other western countries.

Similar photographs have been shared in recent weeks in Kherson, as Russian forces withdrew from the “annexed” region and left behind damaged equipment – and even in some cases, perfectly usable equipment.
