War in Ukraine: the hallucinatory numbers of Russian military casualties
Nicolas Tonev, edited by Romain Rouillard
With the war still raging in Ukraine, website Oryx, a military affairs specialist, reveals that the Russian army has lost an astronomical amount of equipment since the offensive began. This could potentially increase the human toll and provide the Ukrainian army with additional equipment.
The numbers are enough to make you dizzy. According to the Oryx website, which specializes in military affairs, the Russian army has suffered colossal material losses since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. This chilling inventory reports thousands of lost machines.
This type of census is particularly interesting because it is carried out using photographs, thus providing concrete evidence of each machine destroyed. The Oryx site claims 1,200 Russian tanks have been immobilized. For comparison, the French armies only have 200 Leclerc tanks. In addition, more than 2,000 armored support or troop transport vehicles are out of service.
More than 400 working tanks abandoned
The Luftwaffe also lost around fifty aircraft in this war. This material hecatomb, in turn, can be synonymous with human disaster, since the machines were operated by crews or soldiers were transported.
In addition, more than 400 tanks were abandoned in working condition. Thanks to its opponent, the Ukrainian army sees itself better armed than before the start of the war. A shame that could well continue, as Russia still has several thousand tanks in reserve to ground. Subject to finding the tankers they pilot.
