American-made anti-tank weapons (notably the FGM-148 Javelin) have been used to destroy hundreds of Russian tanks in Ukraine.
This article by Peter Suciu, writing for 1945, makes the following points:
- The Javelin, developed and produced by Lockheed Martin, is a great success story.
- The British-Swedish-produced NLAW and the Swedish-designed AT4 have also been used in Ukraine.
- Russia is considered to have the world’s largest tank force, but military experts have long questioned the capabilities of many of those tanks
- According to a report from the independent Moscow Times, Russia has lost 237 T-72B3 tanks, hundreds more T-72 variants, and at least 170 T-80 models since the start of the attack on Ukraine in February.
