Ukraine's acquisition of more tanks should make a difference; however, this article's author argues that for Ukraine to recapture and hold, territory will require many more tanks.


This article by Kris Osborn, writing for 19FortyFive, makes the following points:
  • Figures suggest Ukraine has less than 2000 tanks, while Russia operates more than 12,000—six times as many.
  • Based on current commitments, Ukraine will need hundreds—if not thousands—more tanks to prevail.
  • For Ukraine to win, it must pivot from its defensive hit-and-run style of fighting and operate tanks in large numbers as part of a joint/combined operation.
