The 14th Separate Mechanized Brigade is a military unit of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, located in the city of Chernihiv. The brigade was formed in 2013 as part of the ongoing military reforms in Ukraine and is currently one of the most combat-ready units in the Ukrainian army.

The brigade is made up of around 4,500 soldiers and is equipped with a variety of armored vehicles, including variants of the T-64 and T-72 tanks, BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, and BTR-80 armored personnel carriers. The brigade also has a number of artillery systems, including 122mm BM-21 Grad rocket launchers and 152mm D-20 howitzers.

Since its formation, the 14th Brigade has been involved in several military operations, including the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. The brigade has been stationed near the front lines and has seen intense fighting against Russian-backed separatist forces.

During the conflict in Ukraine, the Ukrainian military captured a large number of Russian-made vehicles from separatist forces. These vehicles included T-64 and T-72 tanks, BMP-1 and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles, and BTR-80 and BTR-70 armored personnel carriers, as well as other combat vehicles. The captured equipment has been incorporated into the Ukrainian military's inventory and used in combat operations.

According to our source, these are the first pictures showing the use of Russian-made Tigr-M 4x4 armored vehicles by Ukrainian soldiers.

The Tigr-M is a Russian-made multipurpose, all-terrain, infantry mobility vehicle (IMV) developed by the Military Industrial Company (MIC). It is designed for use by various branches of the Russian military, including Special Forces, infantry, and reconnaissance units.

The Tigr-M is an upgraded version of the Tigr, which is also a Russian-made infantry mobility vehicle developed by the Military Industrial Company (MIC). While both vehicles share many similarities, there are some key differences between them.

The Tigr-M is based on a 4x4 all-wheel-drive chassis and features a modular design that allows it to be equipped with various weapons, sensors, and communications systems depending on the mission requirements. The vehicle can be fitted with a range of armaments, including machine guns, grenade launchers, and anti-tank missiles, and can also be equipped with a remote-controlled weapon station.

One of the main differences between the Tigr-M and the Tigr is that the Tigr-M is based on a more advanced and modernized chassis. The Tigr-M has a more powerful engine and an improved suspension system, which gives it better off-road capabilities and higher speed on rough terrain compared to the Tigr.

The Tigr-M is slightly larger than the Tigr, which allows it to carry more soldiers and equipment. The Tigr-M has a crew of up to four and can carry up to eight fully equipped soldiers, while the Tigr has a crew of up to three and can carry up to six soldiers.

The Tigr-M has been used by the Russian military in various operations, including the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine. It has also been exported to several countries, including Belarus, Kazakhstan, and Algeria.
