A month after the United States pledged to send more than 30 M1 Abrams Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) units to the battlefield in Ukraine, a Pro-Russian group released a how-to video detailing the weaknesses of the behemoth regardless of the variation.
Hit Zones of the American War Machine
Rybar, a known Pro-Russian media, published a “how to” video on Sunday detailing the hit zones and vulnerabilities of the revered American MBT—heralded as a “hard to kill” war machine. The release came a month after the US announced it would arm Ukrainians with M1A2 Abrams to boost its fight against the invading Russian Army.
The first few minutes of the video highlight the tank’s impenetrable features, recognizing Abrams’ “powerful armor, active protection systems, and other survivability modules,” which are responsible for its combat survivability.
“Nevertheless, Abrams is not an invulnerable machine,” it emphasized as the tone shifts, adding, “like any other vehicle, it can be disabled.”
