A convoy crash in Ukraine has led to four military vehicles meant for frontline action being labeled inoperable for the time being. These vehicles were models known as Z-STS Ahkmat, which is a 10-seat tactical transport vehicle that was recently designed by Chechen Security Forces.
The accident was noted to be caused by “excessive speeds and failure to maintain a proper distance between vehicles” according to Ukrainian intelligence.
The vehicles were headed to the occupied Crimea region to assist with military operations in the region. According to the Wall Street Journal, these 4 vehicles are another addition to the thousands that have already been destroyed.
The war has seen either brand new or four decades old equipment. As Russia and Ukraine both mobilized their stockpiles it is not uncommon to see older models rolling onto the battlefield.
