    The mosin is still a capable sniper/marksman rifle especially in built up areas such as towns villages. They seem have decent uniforms etc. And at least camo their weapons.

    In a built up area they would be sitting ducks with bolt actions. AK-74 would leave them no chance. In fields - I would argue, but that's just insane. Razvedos and other russians professionals(SF, snipers) discussed this topic to death few months ago. They been in combat and killed people and know what works and what doesn't. If you carry bolt action, make sure you have AK with you or you are toast and even then, it's dead weight until you know you are totally safe. Don't tell me Russia has shortage of SVD to donate?

    It's a photo op anyway, or they are stupid and have no spotters with them, their job would be to save their ass if someone gets close.

    These guys are reservist protecting the rear areas like supply lines and towns. The Mosin-Nagants are fitted with optics for sniping. They will have plenty of buddies around with AKs as backup or spotters.

    Any estimates as to how many cruise missiles (Kalibr, Kh-55, Kh-101, Iskandar-K) Russia has fired since Feb 24? I think they have used more cruise missiles in the last 2.5 months than used in Syria over the last 6 years. Must be the largest combat use of cruise missiles ever! thumbsup

    According to the US they fired more than 2000 missikes since the start. However it is counting even smaller once like kh-25. It is also from the US who have no intel inside russian forces so it's a made up claim regarding the impacts in Ukraine. Not reliable at all.

    In Syria they used them either for the show of force or for testing.

    Yeah I don't think 2000 is realistic. 2000 Kalibrs and Kh-101s would have smoked the living hell out of Ukraine by now. I would say around 500 cruise missiles would be a more realistic number. That would be about 7 missiles per day on average since Feb 24.

    All that numbers are taken from the thin air.
    For example, an attack on the Lvov-by training ground, that was claimed to be hit by "more than 30" missiles ...
    Well ... it didn't look like that.
    A few destroyed buildings, that was all. Sure, they hit precisely where they should, still ... there was no space for 30+ missiles.
    Russkies don't deny that, because it creates some perspective of the might indeed.
    This is a kind of repetition of US attack on the claimed "chemical weapon facility" in Syria, when they said to hit it with "dozens of missiles", and the number of 57 was told at some occasions.
    To hit that empty facility with "dozens of missiles", one must have been insane. There was nothing to be hit with that number. But sound powerful, right? A nice topic for the evening news.

    Yeah I said 2000 missiles of all sort even the small ones like kh-25 and ARH kh-31...

    Kalibr and kh-101 are good for hiting Lviv area but closer to the border they will use kh-59 or kh-38 as well as Smerch or Iskanders.

    They also should have used Tochka which they still have a huge number in reserve.

    HEAT warhead concentrate the blast in a particular point. Not really dangerous for the surroundings.

    The tanks is also empty of rounds since it took two hits and didn't explode.

    The hits came from the back which suggest a chopper was used.

    Their counter attack totally failed.

    If it was a HE he would be full of holes.

    I get the HEAT warheads expand most energy forwards to penetrate armour but I would have thought standing literally next to the impact would have been fatal
    Clearly i am wrong

    Also , hearing some chatter on TG about a large shootout in Transnistria

    In Mariupol,  Nazis at Azovstal reportedly asked for food and medicine supplies in exchange for releasing civilians
    Whats that called again… ah yes… holding hostages

    Sanctions on frontline war reporters. Really classy from UK-tards. These NATzO f*cks have no journalists on the frontline and
    sanction real journalists. In the Orwellian logic of the UK the Russian journalists must be staging every scene.

    Putin's battling cancer alright. But not as the patient - as the oncologist. Watch as he excises the cancer that is Nazi Ukraine from Russia.

    Real war reporters don't need entry visas so I doubt this would help.
