Ukraine Withdrew American-Made Abrams Tanks From Front - Report

Illustrative image.

Ukraine has pulled out American-made Abrams M1A1 SA main battle tanks from the front for the time being, The Associated Press reported on April 26.

The United States supplied Ukraine with 31 Abrams over the past year. Russian sources claim that at least a third of these tanks have already been destroyed or damaged. All the losses were near the city of Avdeevka in the Donetsk direction.

Two American military officials told the AP that the Ukrainian decision to pull out the Abrams from the front was the result of the excessive use of drones by the Russian military, which made it too difficult for the tanks to operate without detection or coming under attack.

The U.S. will work with the Ukrainians to reset tactics, Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman Adm. Christopher Grady and a third military official said.

“When you think about the way the fight has evolved, massed armor in an environment where unmanned aerial systems are ubiquitous can be at risk,” Grady told the AP in an interview this week, adding that tanks are still important.

“Now, there is a way to do it,” he said. “We’ll work with our Ukrainian partners, and other partners on the ground, to help them think through how they might use that, in that kind of changed environment now, where everything is seen immediately.”

While the American military officials who spoke to the AP said that Russian drones were the main threat facing Ukrainian Abrams tanks, many of the losses were in fact caused by anti-tank guided missiles. One kill was also attributed to a Russian T-72B3 main battle tank.

The performance of the Abrams in Ukraine was catastrophic to say the least. There were even reports about how much the Ukrainian struggled to just maintain and operate the tanks.

The U.S. will likely provide Ukraine with additional armor packages for the remaining Abrams tanks. However, this will not make any difference.

Despite the recent approval of $61 billion in aid to Ukraine, the U.S. may not provide more Abrams tanks to Kiev forces to avoid further embarrassment.

these turned out to be some real game changers: they changed the game to “running away from the frontlines”

russians are advancing at the eastern front. even ukr government is admitting that, but now that large us weapons package arrived, russia will advance at a very high cost in ru lifes & material. btw. ru soldiers often even cause their own demise, without any ukr help, see (ru soldiers clearing mines ca 24.04.2024 ukraine): https://cuts.top/rscmin244

abrams was supposed to be a game changer, and it sure is! the game has really changed: as a main battle tanks they don’t go to the battle any more, they hide somewhere behind the lines…🤣

just like everything else that is sent by eu/us or nato is announced as a game changing wonder weapon but has proven to be complete crap and just makes russia laugh and the sending parties embarrassed.

the clowns in nato/eu still believe in these “miracle weapons”.

the politician tells the journalist, he writes it the next day in the newspaper, the politician then reads it and then says “i was right, it’s written here after all”

absolutely crazy the whole thing, because the ordinary citizen has to pay for this nonsense

they don’t really believe it because it’s just a money making scam for the arms companies, the more of this junk is reduced to scrap the worse it is for sales.

jens holmmaker the hausfrau

that’s not fair. abrams were built when lethal drones were just a fantasy. the russkies never play fair. at least blinken told those chinamen to play fair, or else. stop making so much stuff, he said or we’ll sanction chinese noodles and egg foo yung.

zelensky says the west waffles too much with its wunderwaffe and why can’t ukraine be treated like israel? his feeling are being terribly hurt. he wants to boss the west around like nutsyyahoo does.

TomB.

ukros running low on armor and artillery and need everything that can shoot on the front, but must remove a whole abrams tank brigade on order of the us just to avoid further negative press and embaressment for us arms? this will weaken the ukro defenses further and more ukros will die. another proof that us an west care a big dogshit about the ukros whom are only usefull cannonfodder, meat and idiots for the war against russia.
