No less: military expert on the number of tanks Ukraine needs

< p _ngcontent-sc181="" class="news-annotation">The number of tanks that Europe is talking about today is only 7-8% of the amount Ukraine needs. The Armed Forces of Ukraine need equipment not only for combat, but also for the reserve.

Military expert Alexei Getman told Channel 24 about this. According to him, 300 tanks from Western partners is the minimum.

The real number of tanks Ukraine needs

Aleksey Hetman stressed that Ukraine received a powerful amount of weapons, for which he is grateful to his partners. However, firstly, these weapons are not enough to carry out offensive operations.

“Secondly, you can't carry out offensive operations if we don't have attack helicopters, aircraft, and basically no tanks,” he said. and on armored personnel carriers, it's a science fiction story. So the Ukrainians do not give up hope of getting more tanks.

We are talking about 300 tanks, because this is such a minimum that it is impossible to do less,” Hetman said.< /p>

According to a military expert, we need at least 300 tanks and it is desirable that another 300 be in reserve.

“It's better to have 300 in reserve twice. If some tanks are knocked out, then so that we can immediately fill this gap with new tanks that we have in reserve,” he explained. , this is 7-8% of what Ukraine needs, because one tank company will not be able to make a breakthrough on the front line with a length of more than 2000 kilometers. So that doesn't solve the issue.

Aleksey Getman said that to compare the war between Russia and Ukraine, they remember the war against Saddam Hussein.

“At that time, in addition to planes, helicopters, missiles, artillery, 1,848 tanks were concentrated in Saudi Arabia, and Saddam Hussein had about the same number of tanks and the same number of troops as now in Russia,” he stressed.

According to him, it was calculated that 1848 tanks would be enough for these several thousand tanks of Saddam Hussein to defeat.

So, according to him, the position West is a bit confusing.

I don't understand why this is being bid on,” he explained.

Hetman noted that there may be political obstacles that we do not know about.
