    The Kiev regime soldiers are brainwashed to an absurd degree. They surrender to LNR and DNR forces because these are from Ukraine,
    but are in complete fear of surrendering to Russian forces because they have been convinced by the Ukr propaganda machine (which
    includes social media) that they will be tortured and mutilated.

    It is their own side that is doing all the torturing and mutilation of Russian POWs. Russia feeds Ukr POWs and tends to their injuries.

    RG-6.
    Note the wild throw of the weapon before each shot - its due to cilinder with grenades being articulated with spring tension released to rotate it before each shot in true revolver fashion.
    Milkor suffers the sane problem, to my knowledge.

    RG-6? For me, it looked like this.

    Yes, definitely GM-94.

    Potent weapon, sure, but that entire video looks quite risky. Sneaking up so god damn close, is that common?

    I guess it gives the enemy far less time to react, but still, if you are discovered before the intended surprise I'd imagine you're screwed.

    Yes, if you have an advantage in night vision capabilities.

    Russians did this in Syria.

    The story of the Moskva:

    It was deployed near Romania and Odessa to track the origin of the "Ukrainian" jets doing runs to the east.
    It turns out they are operating from Romanian airfields flying out over the Black Sea and north to Odessa.
    The Mosvka was employed to track this activity with its 500 km range phased array radar.

    Apparently two UAVs attacked the Moskva.   One was shot down and the other managed to take out about
    half of its radar capacity.  This would make it vulnerable to a Neptun or similar attack.  

    In any case, NATzO was involved in the Moskva incident.  

     

    How a could a slow drone with weapons with maximum range of 30km at most successfully hit a ship with multiple targeting radars. This is like a WW2 torpedo bomber destroying a modern ship.

    Fly below radar horizon until you're right upon it

    That's absolutely retarded, and when I thought deeper about it, this drone claim is even more unbelievable propaganda and aim distressed that some people here believe it. While the claim that missiles hit the Moskva are plausible, the drone strike claim is retarded. If the drones were sea skimming, their glide bombs wouldn't have enough range. Basic physics. Also how the **** would thèse drones destroy the Moskva's radars with pinpoint strikes in a likely stormy or overcast weather is unbelievable. Also the Ukrainians would absolutely post drone camera footage of them targeting the Moskva if they did.

    "Rainstorms", "heavy rain continues to restrict ground movement"...

    According to the forecast he himself provides:
    Tue 0.11in (2.8mm)
    Wed 0.03in (0.75mm)
    Thu 0.17in (4.3mm)
    Fri 0.01in (0.25mm)
    Sat 0in (0mm)
    Sun 0.02in (0.5mm)
    etc...

    All of these are short of 5mm, which in my experience is basically the threshold between hardly noticable and a very light drizzle.

    2.0in/50mm+ would be "heavy rains" IMO.

    edit: in a day, of course. If it was 5mm/hour it'd be heavy.

    Could be anything. There is random unexplained shelling there, probably the Ukrainians at it themselves again.

    Point is electricity and/or internet connections may be spotty. Or he just decided to find himself a more secure place to weather the coming storm.

    I don't think the secret police or their nationalist thugs will actually touch him. They wouldn't dare harm or kidnap any American, no matter their views. That's why he's survived to date there telling it like it is. Not exactly a luxury that's afforded to everyone.

    So satellites are high resolution of America spies ? Looking down on troops and ships ? Troop concentrations are needed in some locations at certain times , for local offensives . Lateral movement is needed along the frontline . Therefore fake troop movements are needed , to concentrate on areas , where no real offensives are taking place . Like a feint , but without any major hot action ( only symbolic artillery or noise and smoke ) , but with major movement to fool satellites . Constant motion , like the three cup trick !

    Apparently all done with the help of a P-3 Orion from within Romanian airspace. There is also speculation that not only the Neptunes, but a NSM missile was used. Tracking was apparently provided from the P-3 and the missiles were running "silent" without their own tracking radars being switched on.

    They won't shed too many tears - he was a Chilean with a US passport. If true - very sad indeed.

    I'll take this with grain of salt especially the new radar claim. As per 10th of April she was still having her MR-600 and 710. .

    Pakistan was always a U.S ally and will remain a U.S ally. India will also gravitate towards U.S because it is too poor a country and extremely corrupt so not in a position to fight against the U.S.

    Russia's only ally therefore is China. Russia along with China should divide India and Pakistan into several smaller nations. A few of these nations might support U.S but the remaining nations will support Russia.
