Western equipment in Ukraine breaks down during slight frosts

Servicemen of the Ukrainian army cannot independently repair a broken machinerysupplied by Western countries. About it TASS Andrey Marochko, officer of the NM LPR, said. According to him, many samples of foreign armored vehicles fail even with slight frosts.

The fact that Western models of armored vehicles will be unable to perform combat missions in low temperatures, many military experts said even before the start of massive deliveries. However, the realities of the military conflict turned out to be more severe than any assumptions.

As it turns out, for the failure of foreign equipment, one does not need to wait for severe frosts. Many samples cease to function even with slight frosts. The Achilles' heel of foreign armor is hatches on turrets and tracks. Even with a slight decrease in air temperature, they freeze.

In addition, as Andrei Marochko stated, many components and assemblies of equipment fail. But the real problem for the APU is the lack of repair skills.

Even despite the methodological recommendations of suppliers on repairing breakdowns and restoring performance, Ukrainian military personnel are not able to cope with all breakdowns, since many repairs are not provided for in the field

- said the officer of the NM LNR.

Note that now Ukraine is waiting for the supply of Western-style tanks. Kyiv seriously hopes that foreign heavy equipment will change the course of the conflict.

    Western cars feel quite comfortable in Siberia, often surpassing domestic products in reliability.
    But it is precisely with military equipment that the "West" suddenly has problems.
    Mystic, nothing else.

    Heading option "Siberian mirages of Sergei Shoigu"

    Western equipment on the Outskirts breaks down during slight frosts

    between Bratsk and Krasnoyarsk

    Sergei Shoigu proposed to build in Siberia "three, and preferably five" million-plus cities with a population of 300-500

    Thatcher said that "according to the estimates of the world community, it is economically feasible for only 15 million people to live in Russia."

    "It does not start well in cold weather - Volkswagen. Hitler kaput!"

    In 1933, the Nazis came to power in Germany, and Hitler became Chancellor. In the autumn of the same year, in one of the halls of the Kaiserhof Hotel in Berlin, a meeting took place between Hitler, Jacob Werlin (Daimler-Benz, Steyr-Daimler-Puch G-Wagen), and Ferdinand Porsche (German designer of armored vehicles and Volkswagen Käfer cars) . Hitler put forward a demand: to create for the German people a strong and reliable car worth no more than 1000 Reichsmarks. It would be a great propaganda ploy for the Nazis and personify the new Germany. Hitler, who was once a budding artist, sketched out a sketch of a new car and invited Berlin to appoint a designer to fulfill a national order.
