3 part video inside a captured RU T80-MVM; apparently their ammo was had 'training' fuzes installed.

"'training' fuses". So the Russians don't trust their troops with live ammo, or is the supply system even more screwed up than we already thought?

the latter I think. They have no functioning corps of noncoms.

I agree, the latter is the most likely, plus the general rush to war - whose nature had been kept secret from the troops and most leaders until just before attack.

Spectacular quadcopter kill of a tank; ironically the much maligned 'cope cage' probably would have prevented this.

If this list is complete, it looks like the Russians use HE rounds with inert fuzes for target practice, instead of having inert TP ammunition in the inventory.

If that is indeed the case, then such a mistake is perhaps understandable considering the stress and chaos of the "general rush to war" noted by gatnerd.
