Looks like MANPADs (or SAMs) are being deployed/used now. This link shows a video of a large Ukrainian aircraft being destroyed.
Nice work Obama & crew!
~They look like T-62s to me, but dont T-64s look almost the same?~
In fact T-62 has nothing in common with T-64.
T-62 is actually an upgunned T-55 and T-64 is a radical innovative tank for it’s time.
It was a top gun in the 1960s, a kind of like Abrams since 1980s.
It had a composite armor, precise advanced fire control with laser rangefinder and stabilized cannon, autoloader, remote-controlled machine-gun, multifuel engine - all back to 50 years ago!
More recent T-72 was a step backward. It was like Chevy Nova to Corvette comparing to T-64 but also T-72 cost was under 300,000 rubles and T-64 over 1 million at the time. A couple of T-64 engines alone would cost as much as fully-equipped T-72.
Also T-64 was designed and built in Harkiv, Ukraine. For that reason, Russia has seized operation and scrapped it’s T-64s soon after Soviet collapse while Ukraine still builds that things and has it as their primary MBTs.
Obama will not touch Putin, as long as Putin does not attack or bomb any Sunni Muslims in the Ukraine and its vicinity.
