 4th Tank Brigade

he 4th Tank Brigade named after Hetman Ivan Vyhovskyi (Ukrainian: 4-та окрема танкова бригада імені гетьмана Івана Виговського) is an armored formation of the Ukrainian Ground Forces.[1]


The 4th Tank Brigade was established in late 2017 with the purpose of serving as a reserve unit to the 1st and 17th Tank Brigades within the Ukrainian Armed Forces.[2] It was equipped with T-64 and T-72 tanks.[1] The brigade underwent training and preparation for combat, including a final stage of combat readiness at Honcharivske training base, the home of the 1st Tank Brigade, in July 2018.[3]

During the Russo-Ukrainian War in 2019, the 4th Brigade was sent to the Joint Forces Operation Zone to support the 72nd Mechanized and 36th Marines brigades.[2] The brigade was equipped with T-72 and BMP-2 IFVs, and various artillery pieces.[4] In October of that year, the brigade participated in a joint exercise that involved crossing a river, supported by attack helicopters, and attacking suspected enemy positions.[5]

When Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022, the 4th Tank Brigade was deployed to help defend the northeastern part of the country.[5] The brigade played a significant role in the Battle of Kharkiv and subsequent Eastern Ukraine offensive.[3] It was initially deployed in the area of Sloviansk-Kramatorsk as a reserve unit and later stationed south of Izium.[5]

On February 24, 2023, which marked the one-year anniversary of the invasion of Ukraine, Poland handed over the first four out of 14 Leopard 2A4 main battle tanks to the 4th Tank Brigade.[4]

The Azov Special Operations Detachment (Ukrainian:
Окремий загін спеціального призначення «Азов», romanized: Okremyi zahin
spetsialnoho pryznachennia "Azov"), also known as the Azov Regiment
(Ukrainian: Полк Азов, romanized: Polk Azov) or Azov Battalion until
September 2014, is a unit of the National Guard of Ukraine based in
Mariupol in the coastal region of the Sea of Azov. Azov formed as a
volunteer paramilitary militia in May 2014, and has since been fighting
Russian forces in the Donbas War. It first saw combat recapturing
Mariupol from Russian forces and pro-Russian separatists in June 2014.
It initially operated as a volunteer police company, until it was
formally incorporated into the National Guard on 11 November 2014. In
the wake of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, the battalion gained
renewed attention for its use by Russia in justifying the invasion and
during the Siege of Mariupol for its role in the defense of the city.
