This type of tank is feared because the 'BMPT Terminator' is a heavily armoured combat support vehicle. It can engage ground and air units to protect other tanks.
Russian Terminator tanks roll into Ukraine
And not just one, but many. Residents of the town of Sjewjerodonezk have filmed the tanks passing by. As RTL reports, experts have also confirmed the authenticity of the recordings.
Russia's 'wonder weapon' to compensate for high tank losses
These tanks have also appeared in action in pro-Russian media, where they are described as a 'wonder weapon' by Kremlin supporters. The 'Terminator' tanks are said to be Russia's most advanced military vehicles.
It is the first time that these 'Terminator' tanks have been used directly in combat. They are equipped with grenade launchers, anti-tank systems, and small arms. According to Mail Online, a defence source told state news agency RIA Novosti:
They are involved in the fire destruction of Ukrainian positions, armoured vehicles, and crews of anti-tank missile systems.
Most recently, Russian tanks have been badly affected because they have a weak point. With the help of British missiles, Ukraine is currently taking out the armoured vehicles of Putin's army.
This tweet translates to:
The Russian battle tank BMPT "Terminator" was spotted yesterday near one of the hottest front lines in the Donbass region.
