The Ukrainian military claims to have destroyed a total of 7,366 Russian tanks, with 12 additional tanks lost in the last day alone.

The numbers rise sharply across other categories: 14,156 armored combat vehicles, 12,148 artillery systems, and over 9,611 unmanned aerial vehicles have also been reported as destroyed.

The conflict’s reach spreads to the skies and seas as well, with 348 aircraft and 325 helicopters reportedly taken down.

The naval losses, though smaller, are nonetheless significant, including 26 warships/cutters and one submarine. Additionally, the Ukrainian forces have neutralized 1,055 multiple launch rocket systems and 788 air defense systems.

The battlefield losses reported extend to 16,337 motor vehicles and 2,001 special equipment units, demonstrating the vast scope of the conflict and the intensity of engagements across multiple terrains and strategies.

It's important to note that these figures are sourced solely from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and have not been independently verified. The nature of conflict information, often released for strategic and informational purposes, means that such data should be approached with caution.
