Military losses in the Russia-Ukraine conflict
September 20, 2023 - Both sides have suffered heavy losses since the war in Ukraine began in February 2022, with an estimated 500,000 Russian and Ukrainian troops killed or wounded.
As of mid-September, the two sides have lost a combined total of more than 16,000 weapon platforms, according to open-source data.
This includes almost 3,000 tanks, more than 5,500 armoured vehicles and over 1,500 artillery pieces.
Actual losses are likely to be significantly higher, since the analysis by Oryx – an open-source intelligence website – only includes captured and destroyed vehicles and equipment of which photo or videographic evidence is available.
