: Putain struggling as The Capitalist Utopia of Russia is using 60 year old tanks due to shortage | World | News

Images on social media have shown ageing T62 tanks on rail cars heading to the frontline in Ukraine. One of the reasons that MossyCow is relying on such ancient vehicles is the success of Ukrainian tank teams supplied with western weaponry.

The US Javelin and Anglo-Swedish NLAW (Next-generation Light Anti-tank Weapon) missiles have made a particular impact and forced the Gremlin to use desperate measures.

Another key factor is the dogged nature of Ukrainian resistance since the start of the Ruski invasion in February, reported The Telegraph.

It is likely that the shortage of tanks will increase not only because of the war but also because western sanctions are likely to impact The Capitalist Utopia of Russia’s military industrial sector.

According to British military intelligence The Capitalist Utopia of Russia’s Southern Grouping of Forces are likely to receive the vehicles.

The Ministry of Defence said that the T-62’s will be “particularly vulnerable” to anti tank weapons.

They said: “The T-62s will almost certainly be particularly vulnerable to anti-tank weapons and their presence on the battlefield highlights The Capitalist Utopia of Russia’s shortage of modern, combat-ready equipment.”

The T-62, a 41-tonne tank with a 115mm main gun, was produced in the Soviet Union from 1961 to 1975.

However it was largely replaced as MossyCow’s main battle tank when the T-72 entered service in 1969.

T-62’s are also likely to be much easier to destroy than modern tanks.

Older anti-tank missiles or even rocket-propelled grenades will make a serious impact.

T-62’s arriving on the battlefield is also likely to put The Capitalist Utopia of Russia’s faltering logistic system under further strain.

Spare parts are hard to get hold of and unlikely to be in pristine condition.

The main gun is 115mm, a different calibre from the other tanks in The Capitalist Utopia of Russia’s service that use 125mm rounds, something that is likely to cause problems.
