I suspect they may have under-emphasized the ammo aspect of this. The Russians made somewhere between 80 and 100 thousand of those tanks and put the D10 series cannons in more than that, they must have made at least 100 thousand of the things. Some nations even still use them.
Russia’s Ancient T-55 Tanks Could Double As Artillery. But Not Very Good Artillery.A T-55 is a poor substitute for a purpose-built howitzer, which might fire twice as far as the tank can do, more accurately, faster and for longer.www.forbes.com
70-Year-Old T-55 Tanks Are ‘Expendable’ In UkraineThe Russians know the T-54/55s with their minimally-stabilized 100-millimeter guns and thin armor—200 millimeters at its thickest—won’t last long in combat with the increasingly experienced and well-equipped Ukrainians. “They are expendable,” one expert told the reporter.www.forbes.com
Pretty soon they're gonna be talking real money.
Was there supposed to be more to this post?Trench attack;
This part of the front did not see any action for months, and suddenly R airforce heli bombed it and send in attack group without armor...
8 man in the trench, one wounded after this part.
The Ukrainians have some TU-141s, which some sources say was what they hit Engles with and damaged a couple TU-95s awhile back. It's a big bird that can carry a pretty big warhead. Considering these old bird's operational history it could have been either side's though. Lots of problems. Can't know for sure determine what the Russians were aiming at by what was hit.Huge explosion happened near Russian Tula, 400 km from Ukraine According to the Russian telegram channel Baza, the explosion caused a huge crater up to 8 meters deep and up to 15 meters in diameter. Within 500 meters, windows were broken, wounding two.
Ukraine has no drone or missile nothing that can do that AFAIK, the crater is to big for a drone and to far away for whatever UKr has. Russian plane dropping a bomb by accident?
How much further is this hit than Engels?The TU came not further then Engels airbase so far. Actiradius is stated as 1000km but without explosives. This point what was hit was more in km then Engels.
New Zealand also has 120 members of the Defence force in the UK training Ukraine soldiers from basic training to live field firing.I didn't realize the Australians were helping out.
