In today’s SOFREP Pic of the Day, we see an M1 Abrams main battle tank, purportedly in use by the Ukrainians and knocked out by the Russians.

For more reference, here is the entire image.

The orange text reads, “awaiting updates.”

This image was supposedly taken near Avdiivka this month, February 2024. We can clearly see that the hatches are open. It may have been knocked out by Russian artillery or a Lancet munition.

The Lancet

The Russian Lancet munition is a loitering munition or “kamikaze drone” developed and produced by the ZALA Aero Group, part of the Kalashnikov Concern, one of Russia’s leading defense manufacturers. Loitering munitions like the Lancet are designed to bridge the gap between traditional drones and guided missiles, offering a blend of surveillance and direct-strike capabilities.
