Russia’s Strongest Tanks Are No Match for Ukraine’s New Weapons

American and Polish soldiers inspect an Abrams tank before a live fire demonstration on September 21, 2022, in Nowa Deba, Poland. “Critically, depleted uranium will mean you can take Russian tanks out from any position at all, even where the armor is thickest,” Newsweek was told on Tuesday.

DU munitions are “the most potent tank ammunition that’s around,” according to former British Army Colonel Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, who previously commanded U.K. and NATO chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear defense (CBRN) forces.

DU munitions “pack a far bigger punch than traditional tank ammunition,” de Bretton-Gordon told Newsweek, adding: “As far as killing Russian tanks, it is incredibly effective.”
