In the past Russia had a few variants of each tank - they kept the fully-equipped ones at home, gave the lower standard to friendly countries & crude basic version to friendly countries that weren't trusted.  So is Russia sending their best equipment to Ukraine ?

I've seen a number of T-64s fried in Ukraine I guess these are Russian Army not Ukrainian ?

Of course - the Russians invaded, so their units with the best equipment would take those tanks if they were part of the invasion (in this case, the 4th Guards Tank Division IIRC). The Wiki link I posted back on the previous page should make things clearer.

Nope - the Ukrainians got all the T64s during the divorce since that's where the T64 plant was located.

PS - note how this article is translated so that the object (T90MS) seems like a singular object. From photographic evidence, we know there's a plurality of T90M(S) types in the Ukraine.

Neat photo, tho.

Perhaps they will avoid giving the T-14s to the farmers...

Iíll wager the Ukraine army has several different types in service lately.
