In the Russian-occupied Lisichansk, a T-34 battle tank of the Second World War was spotted.
After the Ukrainian troops left Lysychansk and the Russian army went there, the infrastructure in the city was completely destroyed.
On one of the checkpoints, social media users found a T-34 battle tank.
There is reason to believe that the T-34 tank belongs to one of the units of the DPR People’s Militia, which is armed by Russia with obsolete weapons of the First and Second World Wars.
In March of this year, in the Kherson region, a “wheelbarrow” was seen on the basis of the motor scooter “Muravey” with a Maxim machine gun of 1883, and in one of the broadcasts the DPR fighter demonstrated a Mosin rifle of the 1891 model.
As for the Armata tanks, their release was postponed due to high production costs. To date, 20 Armata tanks have been produced, and there are not enough personnel and equipment to continue production, but according to the statements of the director of Uralvagonzavod, Russia can produce such tanks, although they are 2.5 times more expensive than the T-72 tank (4 million T-72 against 7.9 million Armata).
Financially, the T-34 tank is much more attractive than the T-72, T-90 or Armata, because the cost of such a tank does not exceed the cost of the metal from which it is made.
By installing dynamic protection on the T-34, Russia can get a completely combat-ready unit, and several thousand of these tanks can play a role in the upcoming battles with Ukrainian Leopard tanks.
