Even untested military equipment is used on the Ukrainian front

Despite Ukrainian forces methodically destroying enemy river crossings, Russian attackers are still trying to control the logistics of forces stuck on the right bank of the Dnieper River in southern Ukraine.

The portal “Defense Express” claims to have learned from several sources how the Russians are trying to create a passage through the Dnieper, as well as the Inhulet, a smaller river, no less important for the logistics of the group of forces that occupied Kherson.

Interestingly, the transponders installed by the Russian occupiers are likely to operate using BT-3F armored personnel carriers. The latter are characterized by the fact that this vehicle was tentatively tested only in 2022. in February At that time, according to the available data, the contract with the Russian army had not yet been concluded.

From 2022 August 12 The published TASS interview with Piotr Tyukov, General Director of UAB “Kurganmašzavod”, also shows that in August the contract for the supply of these combat vehicles was still not concluded. He said the vehicle has yet to pass state testing.

It is also known that in 2019 at the end of 2020 At the beginning of the year, the Russian Federation and Indonesia signed a contract for the supply of 100 BT-3F units, with a deadline of 2022. the end

In other words, we can assume that some of the vehicles were indeed manufactured, and perhaps a few units were deployed in Ukraine – instead of going to Indonesia.

From this it can be concluded that the Russians are forced to use even non-serial military equipment – moreover, intended for marines, that is, the Russian army continues to use marines for ground combat.
