    Just from that snippet, it seems that either intelligence assessments  were wrong, or that someone from political/military top decided to ignore it.
    Worst outcome for regular grunts in the field.

    The 831st tactical aviation brigade of the Ukrainian Air Force has published a series of photographs from the work of the Mirgorod airbase. This airfield is located only 200 kilometers from the Russian border and, nevertheless, continues to function.

    The published images show the work of the Su-27 fighters, which the Armed Forces of Ukraine use to intercept cruise missiles. The MiG-29 also got into the frame.

    In total, according to our data, about 7 Su-27 fighters are based at this airfield. If the Russian Ministry of Defense wants to thin out the Ukrainian military aviation fleet, then the Mirgorod airbase is an excellent target.

    Peculiar for the discussion to not refer to its rated total number of rounds.   All howitzers have a rather short life given the intensity of their use
    in Ukria.   It is hard to tell if this wear and tear is normal or abnormal.   Sounds to me like a bunch of wunderwaffen fetishists are surprised
    that guns wear out and fast.

    I recall that Soviet/Russian guns have several thousand round lifetimes.   NATzO weapons are not going to be any better in this regard.


    Any howitzer typically needs barrel replacement after 1000 rounds. BUT I am not sure if this is a safety issue, accuracy/range issue or all of the above.

    I wouldn't discount it completely. Both Mirgorod amd Kanatovo are active and UAF perform daily flights from those. You can find videos of plains in flight taken by people from the ground.
    Odessa airports as well.

    Not carrying much AAM.

    Their air force does nothing. Let them spend energy and time on useless planes. The ones that go near the front get anihlated anyway pretty easily by buks or r-77-1.

    I'm pretty sure r-77M is also being combat tested and r-33S are also working.

    They are getting experience of fighting in the air instead of destroying them on the ground.

    Those photos look like they're from an airshow a few years back.

    Casually landing two Su-27UB trainers in tandem does not occur in a war situation, when hundreds of planes have been shot down already.

    Wouldn't be surprised if the photos are from RIAT 2017 or so.

    If real and not from an airshow, why is it still functioning at all, several months into the campaign? That makes zero sense to me.

    The Russians will have teams of people monitoring the internet looking for all sorts of things including evidence of war crimes... publishing this stuff might make them feel good, but it will not end well I expect... unless they are trying to bait a trap... but I suspect they will be cautious over this aspect too.

    Those turrets on the top of the trucks are interesting. I've never seen that before on ordinary transport trucks.

    Only makes sense with armoured trucks or AFVs... exposed MG mounts like those on M113s in the west often had such things added to make them less vulnerable to snipers and small arms fire while they are hosing down the enemy or enemy positions.

    On a conventional truck it would make no sense as instead of shooting at the person using the machine gun mount or grenade launcher you could just hose down the driver instead...


    They are getting experience of fighting in the air instead of destroying them on the ground.

    Eliminating them in the air gets the pilot too...

    If real and not from an airshow, why is it still functioning at all, several months into the campaign? That makes zero sense to me.

    Information from the Orc side does not often turn out to have much truth behind it... that makes the most sense.

    IMHO there is zero chance that this is real. clown If the Ukies were indeed operating fixed wing combat aircraft from an airfield in Ukr, the Russians will know about it, and they would take it out. The lack of LACMs hitting this place can be taken as good evidence that no such operations are happening there.

    What is left of the Ukrs Airforce is already under severe pressure to survive. Posting pictures and videos of their Sukhois operating "freely" from a known airbase would be a huge security breach - unless it's pure propaganda (which it is).

    💥 As a result of strikes by precision weapons of the Aerospace Forces on the positions of the 92nd mechanized brigade near the city of Kharkiv, up to 130 servicemen and 13 armored vehicles were destroyed. In the area of the settlement of Konstantinovka of the Donetsk People's Republic, a temporary location of units of the 95th airborne assault brigade was hit. Up to 400 military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and 20 units of military equipment were eliminated.

    ◽ As a result of active offensive actions of Russian troops and people's militia of the DPR and LPR in the areas of Soledar, Artemivsk and Avdiivka settlements of the Donetsk People's Republic, units of the 54th mechanized, 56th and 58th motorized infantry brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, having lost their combat capability due to heavy losses, left their positions.

    Russian air defense systems shot down four unmanned aerial vehicles in the air during the day in the areas of the settlements of Andreevka, Druzhnoye of the Donetsk People's Republic, Izyum and Dmitrovka of the Kharkiv region. In addition, five multiple launch rocket systems were intercepted in the areas of Druzhnoye in the Donetsk People's Republic, Solnechnoye and Muzykovka in the Kherson region.
