Another trophy: the Ukrainian armed forces captured a Russian T-80 tank, which was used only at parades

The 95th Airborne Assault Brigade captured another Russian trophy.

Here's What We Know

We are talking about a T-80 tank with almost zero mileage. The brigade's press officer, Yury Kochevenko, told this. According to him, the tank has only 900 hours of service life. For comparison, the normal rate for a tank in continuous use is at least 20,000 hours. In addition the trophy T-80 has white rollers. That is, the tank most likely was used only for parades.

Recall that the T-80 is the main battle tank created in the USSR. The world's first serial tank with a single gas turbine power unit. It was adopted for service in 1976. The armed forces of Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, South Korea, Cyprus, and Pakistan now use it. Its latest modification (T-84) continues to be produced in Ukraine.
