In mid-October, in the face of Ukrainian offensives, Russian armored vehicle losses increased to over 40 a day, British Intelligence informed in its 3 November report. This confirms estimations of Ukrainian General Staff on Russian daily losses during the same period.

  • “Russian soldiers serving in Ukraine are likely frustrated that they are forced to serve in old infantry combat vehicles which they describe as aluminium cans. In mid-October, in the face of Ukrainian offensives, Russian armoured vehicles losses increased to over 40 a day: roughly equivalent to a battalion’s worth of equipment.
  • “In recent weeks Russia has likely resorted to acquiring at least 100 additional tanks and infantry fighting vehicles from Belarussian stocks. Armoured units and artillery are central to Russia’s way of war; the force in Ukraine is now struggling partially due to difficulties in sourcing both artillery ammunition and sufficient serviceable replacement armoured vehicles,” the British Intelligence report reads.

According to Ukraine’s General Staff, Russian losses remain high at the beginning of November. On 2 November, for example, Russia lost 20 tanks and 27 armored personnel vehicles as well as 730 soldiers. In total, Russian losses amounted to 74,000 in personnel, over 2700 tanks as well as over 5500 armoured vehicles.
