Ukraine LIVE: Putin humiliated as Russian soldier exposes horrors ‘They don’t give a f***’ | World | News

The UK’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) has said the heavy attrition of Russian Main Battle Tanks in Ukraine is highly likely partially due to Russia’s failure to fit and properly employ adequate Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA).

In Thursday’s intelligence briefing, the MoD stated: “The heavy attrition of Russian Main Battle Tanks in Ukraine is highly likely partially due to Russia’s failure to fit and properly employ adequate Explosive Reactive Armour (ERA).

“Used correctly, ERA degrades the effectiveness of incoming projectiles before they hit the tank.

“This suggests that Russian forces have not rectified a culture of poor ERA use, which dates back to the First Chechen War in 1994.

“It is highly likely that many Russian tank crews lack the training to maintain ERA, leading to either poor fitting of the explosive elements, or it being left off entirely.

“These deficiencies probably contribute to the widespread incidents of turret ejection, which are well documented in eye-witness videos from Ukraine.

“The war has seen numerous failures by Russian commanders to enforce low-level battle discipline – such as the use of ERA.

“The cumulative effect of these failures is likely a significant factor behind the poor performance of Russia’s forces.”
