Although it cannot be verified, the Ukrainian army's estimates put the number of Russia's equipment losses much higher, claiming that Russian troops have lost 1,768 tanks and 4,011 armored combat vehicles. Moscow, on the other hand, has never shared reports of its military equipment losses in Ukraine.
It has been 148 days since the Russian invasion of Ukraine began. On Thursday, the Russian military made some marginal territorial gains in parts of the Donbas but has failed to achieve any sort of breakthrough.

Overall the new Russian tank is on par with the US Abrams tank. In some areas it is slightly superior than the Abrams, however it has got no cutting-edge superiority. The Abrams has technical superiority in mobility and cross-country performance.
And a significant level of their spending does not appear "on the public books." Overall, in terms of resources, the U.S. has an advantage, but it is not as overwhelming as it appears. In terms of simple numbers of warships, China is already leading the U.S., roughly 350 to 300, in combat vessels.
The United States
With a budget of $738 billion and 1,388,000 men and women in the armed forces, it boasts an awe-inspiring 6,125 nuclear weapons, 11 aircraft carriers, 68 nuclear submarines, 3,761 military aircraft, 867 attack helicopters, 6,209 tanks and 113 warships.
The Ukrainian Air Force today is tasked with protecting the Ukrainian sky from enemy aircraft, drones, and missiles; and performing air support for ground forces to strike Russian manpower and combat equipment such as armored vehicles, artillery, and tanks.
The M1 Abrams for sure belongs on this list. It has been almost 20-years since the American Abrams main battle tank was used in a force-on-force battle during the initial invasion of Iraq in 2003. It was also deployed in Iraq's Anbar province in 2004 and 2005, plus Afghanistan's Helmand Province in 2010.
The combined total of Nato military personnel currently exceeds 5.4m – around four times as many as Russia, according to Statista.
The Ukrainian Air Force is estimated to have inherited approximately 200 MiG-29 fighters when the Soviet Union collapsed, although its fleet was only maintained at around 35 aircraft in the 2010s with low training hours and availability rates hampering effectiveness.
