Russian Army Captures First German-Made Leopard 2A6 Tank From Kiev Forces (Video)

The Russian military has successfully captured a German-made Leopard 2A6 main battle tank from Kiev forces for the first time.

Video footage showing the slightly damaged tank being towed to the rear by a BREM-1 engineering vehicle of the Tsentr Group of Forces, which operates in the Donetsk direction, was first published by prominent Russian journalist Vladimir Solovyov on his official Telegram channel on April 21.

The Leopard 2A6 is one of the latest versions of the German-made tank. It is equipped with the L/55 smoothbore 120 mm gun as well as improved sights, communication system and armor modules. Its internal design was also enhanced to improve crew survivability.

Germany and other NATO members promised to supply Ukraine with around 100 Leopard 2 tanks over the past year, at least 21 of which are of the A6 version.

The Russian military has already destroyed or damaged most of these tanks. However, this is the first confirmed capture of a Leopard 2.

Russian sources speculated that the captured German-made tank will be put on display besides Nazi-era ones at the Kubinka tank museum near the capital, Moscow. However, before that Russia specialists will likely study the tank to better understand its capabilities and weaknesses.

Overall, the capture of the tank was yet another blow to Germany who became one of the main military backers of the Kiev regime after the start of the Russian special military operation in Ukraine more than two years ago.

you idiot, the russians removed the tracks in order to toll it faster bitch

Антон

or may be they are left after blast of mine or artillery shell. anyway the tank looks quite undamaged. if its optics still alive, the tank is combat ready, because tracks can be easily mounted again.

James Hodgkiss

dont call me and idiot, without the tracks its rubbish. you need to evolve into a sentient being or get off the internet.

tank effectiveness regards mobility in different terrain—russian superior—larger more expensive tanks—amerikan brit german cost 20 million$ and disabled by 500$ russian drone…the western tanks do poorly in difficult terrain and very expensive difficult to maintain

the russian economy will keep growing steadily in 2024, alfred kammer, the head of the imf’s european department forecasts.

speaking at a press briefing following the release of the agency’s latest european economic outlook, kammer noted the resilience of the russian economy in the face of the wide-ranging sanctions.

“what we have been forecasting for russia is actually a positive development this year, and we also have seen quite strong growth last year”.

it’s pretty funny, actually. those sanctions actually boosted the russian economy by forcing import substitution on them.

i mean, how long did it take them to replace siemens turbines with their own, 6 months, 7?

it’s hilarious when you think about it.

brics countries, cooperating in the area of information security, will be able to stand against us digital colonization, which one country can hardly do alone, igor ashmanov, head of the kribrum company said in an interview with tass analytical center. “the issue is not simply about information security, including viruses, cyberattacks, jailbreaking, from which it is necessary to secure. information security itself contains several deeper layers”

the brits, as the perfide and cowardly cowards they are, haven’t even allowed their challenger tanks to go to work after the first 2 were taken out by russian drones and are now planning a better version based on the negative experience in ukraine (doubtful they can afford it, which is doubtful. the yankees abrams fare no better than the brits’ and the gasturbine heavy useless things work well in desert area against sandal shoed locals. in ukraine not so well.

we met the challenge head on and we tanked.

and the friggin’ krauts are planning a leopard 3 model since no 2 didn’t work particularly well in ukraine and by the way the brits new challenger will have a gun that is made to use ammunition of the other warring parties!

big deal. they can never use it. their tanks operate with a 3 man crew. ours require 3 persons plus a large bull-dyke to load the main gun. the joke is on them.
