As fully functional Russian tanks and armored vehicles are left abandoned or stuck in the mud, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has reported that Uralvagonzavod, Russia’s primary tank manufacturer, has allegedly halted production as it appears that they have run out of parts to make and repair tanks.
According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the tank-making corporation and the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant have suspended operations due to a lack of foreign-made components.
“According to the available information, due to the lack of receipts of foreign-made components, the work of the enterprises of the Uralzavod (Uralvagonzavod) Corporation and the Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant has been suspended. These companies specialize in the manufacture and repair of tanks and other armored vehicles for the armed forces of the Russian Federation,” the page stated through a post. They also added that the Russians were in dire need of repairing and rebuilding their damaged weapons and military equipment.
Ukraine's Transcarpathian Legion destroyed a Russian T-90 tank – one of the most advanced in the enemy's arsenal. Export versions sell for around $4 million but the Ukrainians destroyed this tank with a single missile from an ATGM system.
