In 2021, Russian deputy defense minister said that 20 T_14 tanks would be handed over to  the forces by the end of the year. However, report says that the deadline could not be met due to technical issues and sanctions n Russia. 


Sending Armata Tanks to Ukraine could be part of Russia plans to assess it's operational and combat capabilities.

Russia reported also has 10,200 tank in store including an undisclosed number of different variants of T-62 and T- 55

The heavy losses in Ukraine also compelled the Kremlin to pull old T-62 tanks out of storage.

The Ukrainian army has not only blown up many tanks but has also captured several of them

Some reports says that half of the tanks that Russia lost were abandoned by their crew. 

Reports say that Russia has been losing about 10 tanks on average per day since Ukraine launched it's counteroffensive

The anti tanks missile's supplied by the West have also played a major role in destroying Russian Tanks

On the hand, the Ukrainian army tanks losses have been much lower.
