    That's mostly from the initial advances in the war, when some Russian units were ambushed by artillery

    Now that Russian forces withdrew from some areas, the Ukrainian photographers have come in

    Russia can't win if they don't use the air force and a bunch of 250 and 500kg bombs daily.

    They need to increase the use of drones and coordinate attacks on air defence sites. Bring back those tochka on the front, spot the AD with drones and attack it in 2 minutes.

    They have hundreds of toshka in reserve.

    Who cares?

    They've won the propaganda battle since day 1, but Russia is banking on hard power creating its own realities

    You, a Jonny come lately, having only been here for 3 and a bit months, telling long term members who understand the ethos of the site what to do is a bit rich.

    Some of the attacks are fresh, like drone videos. But some of the footage are old with already burned-out equipment. There was little action last few days.

    "200" not being picked up by both sides.

    Great.

    I seem to remember you were objecting to me making such demands in the past especially on spreading FUD.

    Re-read my first sentence in that post. I questioned whether this was the right thread and Garry left it here.

    Whether it was true or not, I put it up as it seemed to me to be quite a good article on that piece of equipment and how it functioned so might have belonged somewhere in the Russian Army section of the site.

    Whilst some Drive articles, especially the comments, are rather 'Ra Ra US is best' they do put out some good stuff if you are selective.

    Half measure operation nets you half measure results, with, eventually, a half measure political solution.

    The details are becoming inconsequential the more time passes.

    What logical physical reason is there for Russian AWACS, over the horizon radar, and constant fighter flights, not have detected ukrainian Mi-24s? Dont say IFF, because if youre gonna claim ukrainian and russian aircraft have the same IFF signals, then either you are retarded or the russian military is retarded.
    Could russian air defence detect low flying cruise missiles if they couldnt detect a couple of ukrainian helicopters?
    Also what happened to russian SHORADs?

    Yeah, like they care about making a cause Laughing Laughing

    First, take a look at the very first physical map of the area.
    It is fully covered by the rivers flowing in gorges. One can get to the center of Belgorod not sticking its nose above the horizon for one meter.
    Maybe, if there would be a 24/7 coverage of A-50s, they could have spotted something - but that is questionable.

    If they followed roads and flew with 80km/h most radars, even of an AEW plane, would "think" they were cars.

    Following a review by Garry, this post and the following related to it were moved to the appropriate thread.

    To quote him earlier today replying to another post

    You guys can go to f16.net if you like but Garry has already said economic news will be posted here

    Some can if it is relevant to the fight... the ruble stuff is not and I am going to shift it shortly.



    So please, if only to reduce Garry's workload, please do not post items that are not directly related to this thread.

    Like, WTF has the photo above of Biden in an aeroplane got to do with it? That's just blatant spamming.

    Someone from Belgorod reports that fighters were buzzing their city all throughout the campaign and keeping airspace locked down

    Apart from the early morning of the strikes.

    Strange.

    However it's easy to understand how it can be a genuine fk-up. The relief of that area is very hilly, and from Ukrainian lines its only 40km. Fighter jet cover can be assessed by NATO radars. And Russian anti-air may have reservations over shooting as there are plenty of Russian helicopters returning from missions.

    The Ukrainians could simply have chosen the right window, sent the helicopters in flying low, and then got out.

    I was thinking the same. They use the same helicopters as russians and at low altitude IFF systems may have hard times.
