Why are russian military tactics always reactive, waiting for a fuckup to happen and then fixing it?
Because only an idiot would waste time and energy and resources trying to counter things the enemy might consider doing... what you are suggesting is that instead of waiting for a part of your body to get an itch for you to scratch that you get a wire brush and scrub your entire body red raw so that the itch is never a problem.
First of all it is massively over compensating for something that is just an itch, and it will effect your ability to react in real time to the actions of the enemy because you are busy scratching in places where there is no itch.
Firemen would not be popular breaking into peoples houses at 3am and hosing everything down so it is soaking wet... just to make fires less likely...
They had a month of forewarning that himars were coming.
Yeah, so they should have destroyed them a week before they arrived?
Who here thinks such tactics should be used? Or if not *should*, what about *could* with some success?
I suspect they wont apply such tactics because they are not bastards like the US.
If the rest of the world thinks Russia is just a new version of the west there is not going to be much commitment to shifting to the new world order... better the devil you know as they say.
As Russia finds new customers for its products and resources then less Russian products and resources are going to be sold to hostile countries... the EU wont care that they can't buy Russian cars or TVs any more but Russian gas and oil and coal was bought because it was cheap and made their industry and home life more comfortable and more efficient compared with the rest of the world.
Trading in currencies that are not euros or US dollars alone would seriously damage and weaken the west to the point where the US dollar collapses and countries the US owes money to will no longer accept US dollars for... they can't bribe any more and their military will struggle because they will need spending cuts and start to pretend they are balancing their budgets without obviously sticking it to the poor.
Blacks will suffer so the solution will be targeted priviledges to help them become house owners and in to better paying jobs, which will cause tension... which means gun violence... their elections are getting worse and worse... everyone is blaming Russia and China and Climate change and the Iranians and North Koreans... everyone but themselves... where could that possibly be headed?
The US basically drove Europe to cut cheap energy from Russia and Europe will be suffering for that... how is that going to be working out when things turn tits up and they are neck deep in poo... the can't blame themselves obviously so they will try to blame Putin, but the US will likely get a bit of blame too.
The west has large military forces at their disposal and as they rush towards the brick wall with their eyes closed odds are they might end up using that military to solve their problems, so it will be important for Russia and other countries to stay out of their way and let them turn on each other rather than pick up the rugby ball and have the entire opposition team pile on.
Then the 13 aircraft carriers will turn into rusting hulks in a matter of month.
They might struggle to have 6-8 operational at any one time...
Legitimniy explains what is going on with Ukraine and the HIMARS/M270.
1) It's good marketing for US weapons sales
2) Targets have generally been LDPR militia because they have less air defense
3) Air defenses are being beefed up which will limit HIMARS effectiveness in future
Also explains what is going on here... all of a sudden there is a huge propaganda push to promote HIMARS just like early pushes to promote Javelin and Stinger and Brimstone and M777 and Caesar and now German guns, but for people interested in facts the main effects of such systems has been on the internet and message boards bragging about how amazing they are and why hasn't the Russians dealt to them yet...
Hundreds of military targets hit every day and hundreds of Ukrainian military personel killed every day by artillery and precision guided air power... their claims that civilians are being killed prove to be made up when investigated, and the western propaganda machine want to equate that to shots taken at towns in the Donbass with no military value and therefore no serious air defence systems making them soft targets but also making the use of these western wonderwaffle war crimes... deliberately targeting civilians is a war crime.
So the whiners can keep whining and supporting war crimes promoted by the west and slagging off the Russian military for getting the job done in their own good time.
Yes, its true, LDPR are easy targets right now because of these systems. But this is where I believe Pantsir's will be wonderful - as the gun (not so much missiles) can be quite effective against smaller projectiles coming en mass.
Hell no. The cannons fire 100s of shells in a burst against a small target.... you need a large area of empty ground for all the shells that miss to land in safely and near populated areas is not a good place for that.
Those mini pantsir missiles would be better or TOR.
LDPR received some Buk-M1 few days ago. That's a decent upgrade from OSA systems, they now use.
No panic in the west that they might start shooting down civilian airliners....
Is it difficult to intercept Himars missiles?
HIMARS uses US 227mm rockets, which is basically their equivalent of Uragan a Soviet 220mm rocket. They are smaller and shorter ranged than Soviet 300mm Smerch rockets.
The Russians have been shooting down Tochkas and Smerch and Uragan and Grad rockets every day and HIMARS would be fairly easy to shoot down too.... assumng it is launched at Russian forces who have air defence vehicles with them.
The problem in this case is that the orcs are targeting their own civilian population which are not fully protected by air defence vehicles.
the new deputy minister of social affairs in Ukraine. she has some previous experience in consulting of hairdressers and beauty parlors.
Some need head to run government some need to give a head too.
Like all Orcs she had the experience and know how for the job...
You can't suck US dick if Zelensky has not tested your abilities personally...
Tor carry 8 missiles mostly (can be 16 for newest variant but still not widely adopted) so if himars fires 12 rocket 4 will always go through.
I would say most TOR are the 16 tube variant these days.
HIMARS is the truck mounted version and only carries one bin with 6 rockets per vehicle. The M270 system carries two bins and 12 rockets.
This guy is not with the government, he sounds like a nobody
If they send weapons destroy them
If the send trainers kill them
If global economy goes to shit even better
Take your time and keep killing, killing is winning
He has a point though... they keep escalating the weapon types they send so Russia should respond... cut off all gas supplies to hostile countries for instance. Target Ukraine grain stores and fields and drop anti personel mines in the fields and destroy fuel supplies for farmers so they can't do any crop growing or sowing etc etc...
Hit western Ukraine harder and target the current Ukrainian government...
The EU is inflicting immense damage on its own economy without Russia lifting a finger, it's embarrassing to be quite honest.
Russia can certainly help if they think they can keep arming the Orcs with no response.
This idiot still thinks there's going to be some kind of normalized relations with the west after this operation is over? I suspect a new iron curtain will form around the EU isolating themselves from Russia and the rest of the world at this rate. People will be shot dead trying to escape from the EUSSR.
Yes, relations with the west are over as long as it is led by the US... there is simply nothing to talk about.
The US & EU will suffer. The rest of the world will continue to trade with Russia, Banderastan be damned.
The Orcs will suffer the most from a longer campaign which is why Russia should not be afraid of a longer campaign.
If the west keeps escalating and arming and training the Orcs then direct responses to the west need to be applied.
Ie keep arming and funding Kiev and no more gas supplies to hostile countries... as they threatened Lithuania... block Russian access to Kaliningrad and Russia will block all traffic to them from Asia and the rest of the world going through Russian territory.... see who hurts who.
Why hasn't outdated Russia , developed artillery similar to HIMARS and ATACMS ,to have an edge in
artillery.. Russia can't use cruise missiles ,as if it was artillery , is too expensive for that.
Vann... the fact that you keep repeating the same old shit without listening is why you are ignore lists.
The Soviets developed Tochka in the 1980s it entered service in 1989 and was called SS-21... Iskander has more than double the range and is much more advanced in that it manouvers as it comes down on its target to evade interception and it... Tochka was replaced in Russian service quite a number of years ago by Iskander.
HIMARS is just a shit US rip off of Uragan that is inferior in many ways... HIMARS is truck mounted like Uragan but HIMARS carries 6 rockets while Uragan carries 16 rockets... HIMARS rockets are 227mm calibre and Uragans rockets are 220mm so bugger all difference in calibre.
The Soviets developed Grad (122mm) and Uragan (220mm) and Smerch (300mm) rocket vehicles.
Soviet rockets piss all over US rockets and Iskander is vastly better than ATCMS.
Russia has an enormous store of missiles of all types including lots of anti ship missiles approaching obsolescence against modern ships that are fantastic for fixed ground targets... this is an excellent chance to get rid of missiles that are obsolete and would have needed to have been disposed of in a couple of years anyway.
