    Not ambushed, they were under that sign blocking a road and Ukrainian forces attacked them and destroyed their unit.

    Tank is Russian T-80

    Video here, you can see dead Russian soldier as well plus Ukrainian BTR-4 burning in the background too

    Watched it, can't see anything honestly. Plus that isn't exactly an old T-80. Maybe BVM but as I said, those are up north.  Got pics of the BVM in that spot before it was hit?  Are you sure it's not an Ukrainian T-80 since they operate those?

    It isn't an oplot. It may be a BVM so it would be Russian. But as I said, kinda hard to distinguish.

    Yeah some here, including me have been trough that. Cost me my social media profiles for suggesting Russia had legitimate security concerns, and how russia is not unreasonable and supported our Afghanistan campaign logistically with Airspace acces and russian air transport contractors that flew most of our logistics to NATO bases.

    *BANNED!, PART OF AN UNWANTED OR TERRORIST ORGANISATION!*

    Thanks Airborne for your 10 year NATO carreer, ...Goodbye! Very Happy.
    It is fine tough, no worries. can voice my toughts on other forums.

    So yes, you are certainly not the only one if that is any comfort.

    Its somewhat entertaining to see clown stoltenberg and every pro nato stooge going everywhere.
    "We stand united"
    "consequences"
    "threat to freedom"
    "we will defend ourselves".

    Yeah, Sadly for all of the Nato-flagwavers. With all the foreign interventions that have been done by NATO there are whole generations of former NATO troops that are disillusioned and saw trough the propaganda first hand.
    and know how absolutely full of bullshit NATO really is.
    NATO itself is the agressor in the world, serving the U.S Foreign policy at the costs of its own member states.
    And is just window-dressing at this point masquerading as an alliance. troop numbers are filled barely 60%. No munition stockpiles, vehicles are in an deplorable state and waiting for parts.

    My message for all these pro nato idiots is go sign up in an NATO millitary and be send to NATO's/U.S Next unwinnable conflict and experience the joy of incompetent leadership and moral bankrupty yourselves.

    Honestly, when I first first quit the army I was not sure I did the right thing. I liked the life. Then one of my best buddies offed himself after depressions from PTSD he got in Afghan.
    Today nothing would make me go back. The US deep state will never thank me for ending up a corps beside the road from russian cluster munitions when they finally poke the bear enough for him to come to my country.

    Look at shrapnel damage, Manpads did amazing work. Helmets are near the helicopter and it was captured by Ukrainian forces.

    Huh, damage seems rather small coming from a Buk.
    EDit: Maybe I'm overthinking it. I guess Buk's missiles are proximity fuse and thus shrapnel will do that damage.

    indeed you are full of s hit.
    now you say you will "Destroy russian pipelines " inside russia.  lol1
    Whatever you are smoking ,  just get rid of it dude.  you are totally in delusion ..
    You sounds like a nazi ukrainian buthurt saying how their tanks will reach moscow..   Laughing  

    Europe will not exist today and will be turkey muslim lands if it wasn't by russia empire war
    on ottomans. so shutup and form in line for the major kick in the ass that NATO fully trained ,financed and armed forces will get in ukraine and they got their asses kicked too in syria, your country will never recover its past glory , zero , europe will become a middle east refugees nations   and with gays parade every weekend  ..  lol1


    NATO will do nothing they are all a bunch of cowards , that hide behind nazis or islamic terrorist to fight russia. But never do it frontally..  because the west dont like fights they know can't win.. even iran humiliated NATO in iraq..with those ballistic missiles strikes , forced your forces to abandon their bases..  Laughing

    Ukraine have no chance to win ever , not even if all Gay west , Europe and US and UK powers joins them combined..  russia is unbeatable fighting close to its border..    Wink  and if there was a need for it , it will have mighty china covering their rear flank.    Cool   The only west can do  is cut business relations with russia , so be it... this is what russia need to wake up and for once re-orient its economy towards where the money is , in rising asian economies.  Wink  

    And those sanctions are useless will not stop  RUssia ,they have all asia to trade ,where the money is ,and will not need anything from third world europe , that without Russia empire help ,will not even exist today . Russia Alexanger tzar reach paris on his horse, when european powers believed they could  defeat russia.  Europe today is nothing , not even a shadow of its past..  they can't even build their own vaccines.. how embarrassing.. and need other nations help  Laughing  Even cuba a tiny island  vaccinated all its population with their own vaccines, but europe can't do it.   Shocked   Smile


    So lets summarize..   NATO failures...
    1) NATO alliance of 27 nations backing terrorist  kicked in the ass in syria by Russia.. what happened with "Assad have to go"   lol1
    2) NATO failure in afghanistan..  
    3) NATO failure in vietnam
    4) Nato failure in korean war.
    5) NATO failure against iran..
    6) NATO failure in belarus and kazakistan coups.
    7) and NATO failure in ukraine. lost crimea that they wanted to their warships and will lose
     and now a new war ,to completely remove all those weapons that NATO gave ukraine.. where are those NATO powers now , that don't help their ukraine ally? reality is..
     the west is not prepared to fight nations ,that can fight back.. is only an alliance of losers ,to fight third world nations ,but only when they are alone only.  Wink  

    Not even in your dreams , NATO have a chance to defeat russia ever , anywhere close to russian borders.. NATO is full of weak nations with very obsolete weapons and warships.

    I report guys like you on FB to get it removed. FB is quite fast in that. Pushing russian propaganda out

    This is exactly what is causing so much harm in the west. Who gets to decide what is propaganda, what is misinformation, what are "dangerous ideas"? If you believe this and call other people's posts propaganda then you are ideologically deluded and not thinking for yourself.

    Is talking about the western Intel agencies responsiblity behind the color revolutions propaganda? Talking about the same intel agencies roles in thr arab spring propaganda? Talking about russiagate misinformation? Am I a dangerous person, a traitor? Who gets to decide? Large corporations? Mobs ruled by their emotions? The government?

    Watch yourself. You are becoming wicked. As wicked as those who ratted out friends and families to secret police. Those later would disappear and nobody would know where or why? You are making this future happen.

    BUK would shred the helicopter into bits and it would have square holes instead of round ones. Most likely Igla or Strela. What ever these Ukrainians are saying is irrelevant.

    I think there are various types operating, not much evidence to base an assessment on yet.
    Maybe he thinks of the su-25 flying CAS missions, I would expect them to start operating when SEAD call all clear.
    not sure if that have happened yet IRL outside of the narrative war.

    Yeah, I would assume they would be using Su-30's. Franco may know as he is more up to date of the type of jets around. Most MiG 29s are I think in souther district now but may still have a fair amount west. Don't know. Su-25 is definitely more suited too to this conflict.

    Two mig-29. Probably ukrainian air force in the west.

    Russian air force is still stand off bombing AD IMO. You will see plenty of videos of close in support when ukrainian skies are safer.

    That's why helicopters are mostly used now flying low.
