    So such a large conflict, it's rather amazing what little info is coming out besides hearsay and some odd, 20s videos.

    It isn't like with Armenia and Azerbaijan.

    @regular, I am not on Twitter either. I avoid is at its usually garbage sources.

    How the hell both sides can ID some of their vehicles, I don't see any clear IFFs used by Ukrainians

    It indeed looks like a T-80BVM which is quite surprising considering that they are meant for arctic operations.

    The odd thing is, the BMP also shown (not the second one Regular showed) is a BMP-1 which isn't in use in Russia anymore. At least doesn't look like Russian.

    It could have been a battle where both sides ended up having casualties in that spot. The T-80 is the hardest to distinguish mostly because Ukraine had like 20 different upgrades to their tanks that look awfully similar too.

    Close in support has started it seems whi h suggest most ukrainian AD is gone. Now all the units will get a su-25 with them when they need it.

    Ukrainians have no more chance to do anything. They better surrender.

    Russians are taking damages which isn't surprising. That's why they moved hospitals. But now that the Air force will concentrate on supporting troops they will be less and less damaged.

    Yes, but we need to be careful in distinguishing jets. Cause Ukraine still uses sizeable Su-25 force.

    We saw huge columns of them on our way back from 35th Battery yesterday afternoon. I never said a word here or anywhere about what we both saw.

    Thanks airborn.

    Well, In agreement with Isos, chances are the area will be bombed.

    Maybe pilots survived and held hostage?

    Also, what's the results of DNR and LNR moves?
