The Ukrainian military recently reported the destruction of two Chinese-made Desertcross 1000-3 all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) near Krynky in the occupied Kherson region of Ukraine.

This is a significant defeat for Russia in the ongoing conflict, showing vulnerabilities in their military equipment strategy and reliance on external sources.

The loss of these vehicles signifies a significant turning point in the equipment challenges the Russian military faces.

In response to operational needs, Russia turned to Chinese suppliers for the Desertcross 1000-3, indicating a shift in procurement strategies due to pressing demands on the ground.
