The British Ministry of Defense said that Russian tanks have not been fitted with a reasonable explosive reaction armor, causing losses in fighting in Ukraine.
The status of Russia's main battle tanks in Ukraine is heavily consumed partly because the force of this water has not been equipped and reasonably used for an appropriate reactive armor (ERA), the British Ministry of Defense said in the newspaper.
The agency said that if used properly, Era will help reduce the effectiveness of anti -tank bullets when they hit the target.
It is likely that many Russian tanks have not been trained in ERA maintenance, resulting in poor or non -installed reactive armor, the British Defense Ministry said.
The Russian Defense Ministry has not commented on his assessment.
A Russian tank was blown away the turret in the garden in Velyka Dymerga village, Kiev province, Ukraine on July 22.
Russia launched a special military campaign on February 24 for demilitaries and non -fascist Ukraine.
Western experts identify any of the missiles above the turret, where the thinnest armor, will quickly burn the inner bullets, causing the big explosion and blowing the turret.
To overcome the design disadvantages of T-72, Russia from the 1990s developed the main battle tank T-14 Armata.
T-14 Armata is considered a breakthrough in Russian tank technology, but the cost is too high and some obstacles that make this tank has not been mass-produced so far to massage.
The Ukrainian forces wanted to organize a counterattack to regain Kherson, but Russia still had an overwhelming advantage in the army and firepower in this area.
Ukraine's internal report said the country was behind the recent three explosions in Crimea, including the explosion at the Russian Air Base, according to the US media.
