Is that a hit right behind the right hatch? Dang it is amazing how much these pics look just like Stalingrad pics.

The infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is being run-in with T55 S tanks (transferred to Ukraine from Slovenia).
https://vk.com/video-123538639_456296758
A very important element of infantry training for the development of psychological stability of the infantryman.
It was only from the third time that I was able to fully concentrate on throwing an anti-tank grenade in time and accurately after passing over me exactly such a tank.
We had anti-tank cumulative grenades of the RCG-3EM type. The weight of such a grenade is 1.1 kg., after the throw, a small parachute opens so that the grenade hits the tank's armor with the butt end.
We threw training grenades into tank models virtually daily from different positions. A very difficult element of learning.

Ukraine also accused China of providing sensors for T-90M.

Medvedev: "Russia will produce 1,500 battle tanks this year alone "

So he claims that his commission helped coordinate tank production from a peacetime maximum capacity of 400 to 1500 in 2023.
