    Probably being massed somewhere, and maintained and prepared for spring offensive.

      There is not a lot of movement right now due to mud season, if it looks like the ground will freeze for an extended period there might be a small push but otherwise I think they'll be preparing for that Spring. They'll need time to integrate the large amount of western equipment they've been receiving, what they've got already is impressive and I strongly doubt it stops here, the Jan 20th Ramstein meeting should be interesting.

      Is that a t-62? it's kinda hard to differentiate the t-variants.

        T-64. Note the small road wheels. T-62 has larger wheels with uneven spacing, and its turret sits towards the front of the hull.

      Sure they lost many but Russia generously donated so many tanks they have more than before the war.
      And next time post a pic that isn't 8 years old.

    You don't here anything about any armor right now because its been a mild winter and without a hard extended freeze the mud eats up anything heavier than a half starved mobik.

    Mud
    It's been unseasonably warm in Europe, so there has been more mud than usual, longer than usual.
    Ukraine is risk adverse with their mechanized assets and won't start an offense unless there is a long and predictable deep freeze, and it doesn't look like one is going to happen this year.

    Basically wait until May for any big armored pushes.

        The US maintains pre-positioned equipment all over the world including Europe, most likely you're just seeing a routine shuffling of some armor.

          US has significantly increased their movement of assets within Germany.
          You usually see them once every few years.
          Now it's hard to take a long-distance train and not pass a train loaded with Abrams.

      Why do they still have desert paint on when they are destined for Europe?
      Wouldn't it be easier to change the paint before in the US at their home base?

        No, painting a tank on a base in Europe works exactly the same as painting a tank on a base in the US.

    Anon, the fact that the west is mulling sending over modern western tanks means the Ukrainian ones, as well as most of the soviet stock in western Europe is gone.

    Why do you think the UK would send Challengers if they could prod some EE country to send a few dozen T-somethings instead?

    Probably not that exciting to watch videos of them being repaired, videos of crews training on them, or videos of them dug in, scooting forward 8 feet, firing 1-2 shells in indirect fire mode, and then reversing back into protection.

    There isn't that much cool shit tank shit to film on the defensive. Maybe a counter attack, but it seems like Ukraine is doing what it did all summer and hoping to wear Russia down via attrition as they go on the offensive.

    I would imagine their resources have been too stretched to do much else. The Kherson offensive took a huge commitment of resources and resulted in a large number of losses. They had a ton of shit to repair after that, men to rest, units to bright back up to strength, etc.

    Unfortunately, they didn't come out of Kherson with the momentum the maximalists were hoping for. It was a great victory, but they didn't roll up 10,000 prisoners or anything like that. The later rounds of Mobiks sent in who actually got some training are also probably making it harder to find weak points.

    I would not be surprised if they husband their strength until Russia's planned spring offensive is close, although they may try to pre-empt it.

      This. And a lot of both sides' surviving tanks have still been all sorts of fucked up. They need to rotate them for maintenance. Even ones that haven't been significantly damaged they will want to get back in the shop to ensure there aren't issues when they try to use them.

      Both sides are also saving up for the spring. Russia for a attempt to regain the momentum and accomplish whatever the fuck their "goals" are, Ukraine to survive the renewed Russian assault and hopefully have enough strength left to counter and retake key areas.

      If Ukraine gets any of these new tanks in a timely fashion they will probably want to have units train with using a mix of the current and new tanks to get a feel for how to maximize the benefits of the more modern tanks too.

        mixing sounds retarded.
        only new tanks can be used at night which is their biggest advantage.
