You think the entire stock was cut up within a year or two? Really?
The sep T-64s have a distinctly different look from the Crimean T-64s. Camo, ERA placement. Not that Russia giving them directly to the rebels would be anything BUT proof they are supporting them blatantly, but the Uks did they got all the Crieam T-64s from Russia fairly early on.
I see you gave up your arguments about trucks and focus on tanks now.
Sorry, but in my opinion, "distinct difference from crimean T-64" 'n stuff is just grasping at straws.
Because you should question not the fact of their delivery, but facts of their sustained operations.
OK, let's assume for a second that russia did deliver T-64s. But what about spare parts, engines? Russia doesn't produce 5TDs/6TDs, are they going to buy them from Pakistan or something?
Also, where's the guarantee of personel being found to operate and maintain them at all? Tanks require a bit more training than ATGMs for example.
