The same independent verification exists for most of the other Ukrainian claims. Recently, the Pentagon acknowledged that the Russian military has lost thousands of combat vehicles of all types, including over 1,000 tanks, and dozens of fighter jets and helicopters.
These tanks are only used in NATO by their respective countries. There are roughly 200 tanks in service for each tank type, making a total of 800, plus roughly 1500 Leopard 2's and roughly 2500 M1 Abrams. The majority are M1A2's and the rest M1A1's.
So basically the Abrams has an advantage of being proven and reliable design, that performs well during various military conflicts. 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.

Ukraine has lost equipment, too, but not nearly as much, owing to its relative lack of hardware, careful protection of what it does possess, and the defensive nature of its war thus far: 1,627 pieces, including 267 tanks and 244 infantry fighting vehicles, as per Oryx.
Russia has lost a minimum of 220 older T-72B tanks and some 270 of its workhorse T-72B3/M versions modified in the 2010s.
Ukraine has shot down 55 Russian warplanes, U.S. general says.
Russia has lost 52 of its own, higher-flying helicopters. “A five-meter-altitude flight makes it impossible for the enemy's anti-aircraft defense to shoot down our 'dragonflies,'” the Ukrainian defense ministry explained.

A Tiger 1 Panzer VI Heavy tank cannot take an Abrams from the front at any distance,as it will need atleast 5–6 shots to penetrate the hull and between 7–9 shots to penetrate the turret, all shots must be fired in the same spot. An M1A2 Sep 3 can be taken out by the Tiger 1 from the rear, sides or roof much faster.
The Abrams may be the world's toughest tank and can take a ton of abuse, but not this level of abuse. To put it simply, a main gun round from the Iowa-class battleship will destroy the Abrams easily.
Approved for production in 1990, the M1A2 represents the U.S. Army's technological improvement of the basic M1A1 design and the most modern battle tank in the world.
The combined total of Nato military personnel currently exceeds 5.4 million – around four times as many as Russia, according to Statista. It has about five times as many aircraft, four times as many armoured vehicles and three times as many military ships.
