The Russian T-72B3 tank captured by the Ukrainian tanker Kochevnik caused serious problems for a brigade of the Ukrainian army, which is not familiar with this class of vehicles.

What happened

T-72B3 tanks are among the latest products of Russian arms manufacturer Uralvagonzavod, about 200 examples of which have been seized by the Ukrainian army since the beginning of the war. The ship captured by the Ukrainian tanker Koshevnik had suffered a heavy oil spill, the compressors were not working and the electric turret rotation mechanism continued to fail, forcing the crew to rotate the turret using a hand crank.

Having succeeded in concealing his affiliation with the Kiev Front, a Ukrainian officer decided to contact the Russian helpline, which, incredibly, provided the necessary support to solve the problems of the 45-ton tank.

Instructions issued by the enemy

The instructions were given by Russian Alexander Anatolyevich, who promised that he would also raise problems with the engine manufacturer’s design bureau. The Ukrainian general was also able to speak with a director of Uralvagonzavod, the Russian military-industrial complex that produces the T-72B3, who asked him to describe the tank’s problems in detail on WhatsApp. At that point, the soldier revealed that he was Ukrainian and that his army had captured the problematic tank around late last year, and he finally hung up the call with a laugh.
