It seemed that after a large number of photos and videos with tracked vehicles so lined up and completely destroyed, it was already difficult to surprise with something, but the new data received from the front is indicative.
In social networks, photos of the top of the tower of the 56-ton “jack” of the A4 modification appeared, on which an impressive crack is noticeable. The artillerymen of the Russian army managed to accurately hit this place with large-caliber ammunition, as a result, the 40-mm thick armor simply could not withstand it. It appears that the gunner who was at this location was killed or seriously wounded. Surely, other crew members were also injured or injured.
As you can see in the photo, the EMES-15 main sight and the PERI R17 commander’s panorama were completely disabled. As a result, the tank completely lost its ability to conduct combat operations.
Since Ukraine currently does not have the ability to independently carry out complex repairs, the tank will have to be evacuated to Poland. However, the nature of the damage and the existing paucity of faulty devices suggests that such work will drag on for a long time.
