Laura Cooper, US Assistant Secretary of Defense, said that Ukraine needs tanks, but the American “Abrams” tanks are too complicated for the Ukrainian army.
This showed that the Cooper Abrams not only consumes a lot of fuel, but is also difficult to maintain
According to Cooper, the United States is now engaged, in partnership with European countries, in the modernization of Soviet T-72 tanks to supply them to the Ukrainian armed forces. Gradually, combat vehicles are being sent to the combat zone, according to the Bullet Rus website.
Earlier, the United States, France and Germany agreed to supply Western-made armored vehicles to Ukraine. These include the Bradley and Marder, as well as the AMX-10 wheeled tanks.
