The American magazine Newsweek revealed that the Abrams tanks, which the United States intends to supply as part of the arms shipments that the Kyiv regime is lavish with, may turn into a major and serious problem for the authorities of the Ukrainian regime.
The magazine stated that despite the obvious advantages enjoyed by this tank, represented in its firepower, durability of armor and speed, its engine consumes fuel in a huge and very greedy way, so complex logistical schemes must be developed to supply these combat vehicles with fuel.
The magazine quoted John Spencer, a retired major in the US Army, as saying: “In general, Ukraine suffers from clear problems in the field of providing fuel,” while Matthew Hoch, a captain in the US Marine Corps, said: “Training Ukrainian soldiers to use Abrams tanks will take a lot of time, and he agreed.” With what Spencer said about the difficulty of providing fuel for the Ukrainian forces.
The American newspaper (Politico) quoted an informed source as saying that Ukraine will get from the United States an (improved) version of the Abrams tanks, but it will be the version intended for export and without the secret armor alloy.
According to the newspaper: US policy prohibits the export of Abrams tanks protected by depleted uranium armor, and if these tanks are sold abroad, they are supplied with armor plates of other types.
