Second UK Challenger 2 Tank Destroyed in Zaporozhye Region, Governor Says
However, head of the Zaporozhye region Yevgeny Balitsky stated that about seven Challenger 2 tanks of the United Kingdom had been detected on the front line in his region, and two of them had already been destroyed on the battlefield.
"There are about seven of them [Challenger 2 tanks]. Our 'birds' [surveillance drones] spot them. Four of them are now stationed near Stepnogorsk, two in Orekhov. And two of them were hit by a Kornet [a Russian anti-tank missile system]. They burst into flames with the first hit [...] They [Ukrainian troops] will not take the tanks away; the tanks will end up in some museum because of their sheer weight," Balitsky told the Russian broadcaster.
