Ukraine Loses 16 U.S.-Made Armored Vehicles

Ukraine has lost 16 US-supplied armored vehicles in the past several days, an open-source intelligence analysis claims, as Kyiv announced its forces had captured three villages from Russia in an offensive in the Donetsk region, Brad Lendon, Andrew Carey, Kostan Nechyporenko, Uliana Pavlova and Maria Kostenko reported for CNN.

The 16 US Bradley infantry fighting vehicles either destroyed or damaged and abandoned in recent days represent almost 15% of the 109 that Washington has given Kyiv, according to Jakub Janovsky of the Dutch open-source intelligence website Oryx, which has been collecting visual evidence of military equipment losses in Ukraine since Russia’s invasion began on February 24, 2022.


The Bradley fighting vehicle, which moves on tracks rather than wheels, can hold around 10 troops and is used to transport personnel into battle while providing supporting fire.


When the first batch of more than 60 Bradleys was sent to Ukraine at the end of January, US Army Lt. Col. Rebecca D’Angelo, commander of the Army’s 841st Transportation Battalion, said the armored vehicles would be important to Kyiv’s offensive operations.

Yet, these fighting vehicles also need air and artillery support before they can advance into Russian-held areas.
