I'll give that article a read, thanks! In addition to infantry losses, I've been really scratching my head about equipment losses. I get that Russia has a colossal amount of old soviet junk which they can throw at Ukrainian defences, but they must be running out. They can only have so many old T-72s in storage that they can get going again. Tanks, APVs, artillary; long term I just don't see how it will be possible to sustain an 800km long front line without armour or artillery support. Something has to give eventually.

Well, the short answer is that they have a lot more equipment in storage than you might guess. The long answer is that yes, it will eventually run out, even if it seems like eventually is a long ways away. Perun did a really good video about it 2 months ago, including satellite analysis of equipment storage yards. Worth a watch if you've got 70 minutes to spare.
