Russia creates special groups of tank destroyers

In the Russian army, special groups of Western-style tank destroyers are being created. About this on the air of the program "Military Acceptance" on the TV channel "Star" said Evgeny Arifulin, head of the Combat Training Center of the RF Armed Forces. According to him, Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, gave instructions to create specialized groups that will fight against Western-style tanks delivered to Ukraine.

This work is organized based on the instructions of the Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Colonel-General Yevkurov, who set the specific task of creating these groups. In accordance with his instructions, the head of the Main Directorate of Combat Training, Colonel-General Buvaltsev, and his team developed methodological recommendations and organized a methodology for implementation. And the Combat Training Center conducts and implements these activities

- said Evgeny Arifulin.

At the same time, he did not specify on what basis the fighters would be selected for special anti-tank groups. Yevgeny Arifulin preferred not to talk about the weak points of the armored equipment Western-style, but it is obvious that the fighters of anti-tank groups pay special attention to their study.

The head of the Combat Training Center of the RF Armed Forces emphasized that the creation of special anti-tank groups is a major state system work.

The project is progressing in accordance with the tasks set by the top management

    There are vague doubts that the fight against Abrams is somehow fundamentally different from the fight against the T-72.

    Another question is that modern anti-tank weapons (the notorious cornets) may not be enough to provide regular support for motorized rifle units along the entire front.
    Therefore, they decided to allocate them to the "rapid response fire teams."

    At least there are no other logical explanations for such a decision.

    However, the main enemy of the tank is still artillery and aviation, and not the anti-tank systems from the picture for the article. So, perhaps, we are talking about the creation of reconnaissance / adjustment / target designation groups.

      Today, the main enemy of the tank should be loitering ammunition. Lancets and Cubes are weak for Western MBTs, it is urgent to create more powerful Lancets and Cubes, because completely new products in a large series may not be in time for "lunch".:.

    We "launched" the equipment, now we are heroically fighting. But even that is good, at least the soldiers will be prepared.

    Stunning lack of professionalism and inaction of the Russian Defense Ministry.
    These tanks were not supposed to get to Ukraine at all, and not to throw young fighters under the tanks now.
