Armored Fist: 2 times more tanks appeared in Russia than in the USA


The Russian Federation took first place in the world in terms of the number in its military arsenal of tank equipment. The rating of the countries with the largest number of these heavy military vehicles was made by a former officer of the British armed forces, military expert Nicholas Drummond.


Drummond clarifies that he formed his "tank rating" on the basis of data provided by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) - this institution deals with military and political conflicts.

All countries have a total of 73 thousand battle tanks. Of the total number of this equipment, 24 thousand belong to countries that are potential adversaries, 20 thousand are in warehouses and about 10 thousand have been modernized over the past ten years

- notes the British expert.

Armored Fist: 2 times more tanks appeared in Russia than in the USA

The “armored fist” of the Russian Armed Forces has about 13 thousand tanks. The United States is second in this indicator - they have 6333 tanks (that is, more than 2 times less than the Russian Federation). Honorary "bronze" rating of the British receives China - the official Beijing has 5800 units of tank equipment. China is followed by India with 4665 tanks and Egypt, armed with 3620 combat vehicles of this class.

As for the UK, it occupies only 48th place of the tank "top" - it has only 227 tanks.

    in Russia there were 2 times more tanks than in the USA

    Even a three-fold superiority in armored vehicles does not say anything. Desert Storm proved it. lol

    You never know how many tanks are in stock. A tank is not a tractor - you won’t quickly train. Serdyukov tried, closed tank schools under the root. The main thing is how much we can put into operation right away.

    And the USSR had 60 thousand tanks in the Army and in warehouses, the Russian Federation under 30, and to the point.
    Happiness is not in tanks.

      Not in tanks happiness

      Good phrase. I will definitely remember her. And then they constantly poke into my eyes with the number of tanks in the USSR before the war.
      Indeed, a very accurate remark.

      That's for sure. June 22, 1941 on the western border, the Red Army was more than three times superior to the Wehrmacht in tanks, but this did not help ...

    The range of transporting any equipment to the European tetra is the main obstacle. Equal in supplying everything you need with those who cannot be at home. We do not need to transport our equipment across the ocean. If they want to move here, they will lose half on the road. Even if the conversation does not go on elevated tones to a temperature of millions of degrees.

    Come on, I poke your eyes with the number of tanks in the Berlin operation. At the end of the war. The result is evaluated.

    And your remark does not apply, say, to our enemies in Ukraine? Can they put up five trained crews per 2 per week? Or to the penguins? But we can’t produce one crew per 12 thousand? You, apparently, have only one eye, and that is not where it should be. Why the hell are you reasoning so godlessly stupid?

    Of course, a two-three-fold lag in quantity is the key to victory.

    Hey, constructor. If you are so literate, why do you have the same questions instead of answers? Didn’t finish what? I can conduct accelerated courses of a young fighter to quickly conduct - remotely. Although I’m not a constructor, education is enough without question !!!

      So you can’t even think. Do you know the ratio of tanks in the Battle of Kursk? Or the fighting of 11 TD of the Germans in the great bend of the Don? Or a Stalin telegram about actions near Voronezh?

    Apparently, your education is not enough for this. Since you yourself do not know how to find answers to your questions. If you think that we need to learn for years, and ukrov, or the Baltic states, or the Germans, or ... - hours. Are we in equal conditions with regard to learning?

    Do not worry. I know. I know about the terrible losses of our army there. And that is why, I appreciate the courage and dedication of our fathers. And pray for eternal memory. Interestingly, knowing this, you write all the nonsense about the situation in modern Russia, its Army. What is it? Conscious distortion, the desire to defame, or stupidity? Or maybe a programmed zombie?

      Culture is either there or not. This is clear.
      But who writes nonsense is a question for me personally completely understandable. It all started with a stupid statement about the ratio of tanks in the Berlin operation. And once again I will repeat the quote - "happiness is not in tanks." You have questioned this thesis.
      And which of us writes nonsense?

      Those present here, of course, do not understand that an advantage in armored vehicles can be achieved ONLY in peacetime. Both qualitative and quantitative. During the war, and especially in modern, there will be no production. And, that the quality of equipment more or less high is achieved ONLY in peacetime. None of these idiots held in their hands GOST, GOST V, and GOST VD. And they, of course, do not know how the standards differ from the standards of wartime and the standards of military additions.

        Those present here do not understand what an advantage in armaments is. And that the strength does not reflect the combat effectiveness of weapons. Rommel had 200 tanks against 700. So what? He won. Near Voronezh, the Red Army had 1000 tanks against 200 German ones. And she lost.
        What does GOST have to do with it - only stubborn narrow specialists know. As Kozma Prutkov used to say -

        The specialist is similar to flux. Its completeness is one-sided.

          Kozma was probably right. But the layman doesn’t fit into any gate. Especially new ones.

            I realized that I won’t get a clear answer.
            The funny thing is that you repeat my thesis, but you want to look smart. According to your words, "the result is assessed." All modern wars have shown that the number of armored vehicles is not the key to success. And what do you reproach me for?

              My uncle, a renowned master metallurgist in Novokuznetsk, when he was ordered to start making armor steel, refused. The Martin was equipped with ordinary steel. The main lining of the furnace is chamotte. And the armor steel is sour. Dinas is needed there. They ordered, waved a pistol. 1941 year. Winter. Refusal - execution. Loaded. We started. How many swimming trunks have been made - no one will say. Fireclay has corroded, the chemical reaction in such temperatures is at a brutal speed. Collapsed under. Metallurgists call it a goat, when the cooling metal, slag, furnace structures are mixed. They climbed into the still hot stove to assess the severity of the accident. A fur coat on yourself, with water from a fire hose, and into the oven. The walls are still red. I got cold. And he died in three days. And how many tanks were made of this "armor" poisoned by lining additives? How many similar orders were carried out? Countrywide?

                The reputation is not too educated (to put it mildly) and not too smart you have already made up. Your statements are personally uninteresting to me.
                You did not understand initially in the sense of what was said. And about the quality of tanks, and about the training of crews, and organizational structures, I already wrote a hundred times. And I will not repeat myself.
                As an interlocutor, you are not interesting to me. And even if you write the very right things - boorish tone will outweigh any of your arguments.

    This is yes, it is very "important!" rating. The United States has no enemies other than Mexico, on its American continent.
    And more than 6 thousand tanks were prepared against these tortilla eaters - I did not find Mexico on this list, how many tanks they have there.

    Note to the author.
    The number of tanks is a very good thing, but it was necessary to supplement the number of anti-tank weapons. The battles of 1973 showed this very clearly. Especially the Israeli offensive on the 2nd Egyptian army and the fighting on the Mithla pass.
    How many anti-tank helicopters do NATO countries have, how many ATGMs? Crew training? A mechanic on Abrams must have at least 100 hours. How many hours does a Russian mechanic have?
