    Yup, and not so impressive either, as penetrate about 120mm RHAe. Still, it takes out everything up to the tank level, so ...

    Is that for the 82mm mortar bomb for the Vasilek... that is very low penetration for an 82mm calibre round, I guess it is the light weight, but I would think if they wanted to they could boost penetration.

    Their RPG-16 got rather good penetration with a 57mm calibre warhead... maybe a double warhead design for the 82mm bomb might improve things with a stick fuse to improve standoff distance for setting off the warheads...

    In general?
    Overcomplicated.
    Malfunctioning and fragile.

    Yeah, but if you are giving them away... Smile

    Ukrainian 2S7 Peony detonates in misfire

    I saw a photo of that on western media, but they claimed it was a Russian vehicle that exploded of course...

    Second correct but just 5 or so holes with traffic still using bridge. HIMARS really doesn't have a big enough warhead.

    To be fair it was not intended for destroying bridges... if the Russians wanted to bring down some heavy Orc bridges they wont be using Smerch or Uragan... something with more HE power would be used... probably Kh-29 or Kh-38 with 320kg or 250kgs of HE power and likely more than one.

    Damaged but NOT DESTROYED, Russian military equipment arrives at a repair depot. It will be ready for combat soon enough.

    Several 152-mm self-propelled guns 2S3 "Akatsiya" and 2S19 "Msta-S", a 120-mm towed mortar 2S12 "Sani", as well as a self-propelled ATGM "Shturm-S".

    Some are more complex than others but none of them is irreparable. Keeping these vehicles in the fight is crucial.
    Most of the stuff wasn´t damaged by the enemy, just worn out by the heavy use in the last couple of weeks.

    Or the new Kh-69 which combines the big warhead of the Kh-29 with stand-off capability.  Cool

    Infiltrated ukrops or accident. Their is no strike visible on the video.

    Accident wouldn't be a surprise. They still use some old bombs from soviet stocks that went in a road trip of thousands of km. Vibration due to the road made them even more sensitive. I would stock those further away from new ammo and infrastructure.

    After the air base and the attack at the naval headquarter of Black Sea Fleet an accident would be a big surprise. Definitely saboteurs! No magic missiles and wunderwaffen!

    These saboteurs have done more damage than all of the HIMARS Wunderwaffen combined.

    Most people don't understand that tanks are only lost when they're completely burned out.

    Even if the tank is half in the river for 2 weeks, it can be repaired again.

    Most casualties in the early stages of the conflict were technical failures (engine failed) or simply ran out of fuel. Sometimes there were also technical defects due to penetration holes. This whole narrative of "Ukraine has more tanks than before the war" was just annoying bullshit. Good logistics and also the repair of material make the difference between victory and defeat! Good to see the armored veterans getting back onto the battlefield soon.

    4th sabotage in Kursk.

    This time - power transmission towers.

    Russian territory is free real estate for Ukrs.

    Still, doesn’t make sense why they are doing it now

    Insurgency or special forces raids are absolutely normal during any conflict. The trick is how many of these attacks can be prevented. You need good counter intelligence and wide awake sentrys for starters, but to think this should or can not happen is very unrealistic.

    These sabotage incidents are pathetically irrelevant. The Kiev regime and its fanbois here and elsewhere will not even change Russia's
    campaign schedule.

    You know, sabotage is supposed to be effective and not just an opportunity for wankers to blow their loads on social media.

    For years there have been eerie "accidents"

    How there are no surveillance systems is beyond me

    But this goes on for long time

    Russia is powerful in spite of having an inept leadership

    Especially as long as the people believe in the mission then it's good

    Ineptitude will only affect Russia with dire consequences when the people lose patience and lose faith in leaders

    As in Petrograd revolts, and 1991

    In those time Ineptitude was widespread, but people no longer felt it was possible to excuse it

    Right now the clown show has 90% approval rating so it's okay there's no immediate risk to revolution

    Just a hit to the prestige of the Armed forces

    Not 99.5% , but pretty close

    Russians will support the leadership as long as the military keeps up the numbers on NAFO and Nazi dead

    As long as the bodies of yanks and Ukrs keep turning up, an ammo dump is fair game and acceptable

    Probably Russia can deal with Ukrainian nuclear terrorism, but the shocking level of recklessnes of America's minions is making it more clear to the reasonable part of the world that Russia had very valid concerns, when it started its special military operation.
    The more desperate they are, the more dangerous those American bunglers are becoming, who were responsible for their decades long string of strategic failures.

    You know, sabotage is supposed to be effective and not just an opportunity for wankers to blow their loads on social media.

    Again, the sabotages were performed for the last 8 years, so there is no difference other than some of them might be luckier for the Ukrs.
    What is the importance of blowing up one of the thousands of ammo storage for a country that can produce hundreds of tons of ammo per day? Laughing
    Russkie are cooking off several ammo storages on the Ukro side daily, while they can't produce a shit.
    All that staged "successful missions" are just propaganda with no importance for the war effort.
    It can be considered annoying only, and the most interesting part is that the Ukrs can't stage anything more serious.
    Even this harassing of Zaporozhe NPP, or hydropower plant at Kachovka are a clear evidences of Ukrs being helpless to achieve anything really serious. If one can't get any serious effect on the battlefield, relocates the assets to the asymmetric response. We will see the other staged acts by the Kievan regime for sure. But the Twitter successes are the only they can have.

    That is a perfect conclusion.
    And you know what is funny?
    That the tide is reversing even in the most Russophobic places like Poland.
    On weekend, there was another article about how Russians shelled the Zaporozhe NPP with citation of clown speech.
    The comments section was flooded with opinions in a form like : do you consider us as stupid or something?!? How the Russkies can shell a nuclear power plant they have occupied?!?
    My own observation is, that on weekends (we had a long weekend) troll farms don't work in a coordinated way, so a lot of regular people's comments are floating. Plus tons of situations, when one can clearly see that a comment has been written by a human, and as an answer, there is just boot trolling with insulting 2-4 words comments. Paid human trolls have weekends too, you know Twisted Evil

    Apparently Russia is destroying so much of the munitions (HIMARS rockets, M777 artillery shells) before they get to the front that
    NATzO is running out of the ability to supply them and there is a noted reduction in Kiev regime force activity. So HIMARS is
    used for boutique terror attacks, etc.

    The Kiev regime clowns behave as if they think that they will win this war on social media. The problem is that their NATzO patrons
    are equally retarded.

    By the way, we are talking about this ammo storage base :

    45.59798384188977, 34.53504174873245

    It does not look good, actually more like abandoned.
    My educated guess is, that it is an old storage base where some old ammo is being kept while waiting for disposal.
    As that is not a crucial infrastructure, I suppose that security measures are not strict there either. There are thousands of object like that in Russia, which makes it close to mission impossible to control them all.

    This is how you win both war and peace

    Had these morons been left alive they would have started armed terror/freedom campaign the moment war stopped

    Now they won't

    Ukrainians are not Afghans or Kurds, they do not increase in numbers over time and they procreate slower than pandas

    Every dead ukrop now translates to significant drop in ukrop population down the road

    Weapons are infinite, Ukrainians are finite

    This is why this war needs to last as long as possible, go slow and keep the Ukrainians flooding into the slaughter house and grind them into fertilizer nice and thorough

    No loose ends


    And​ post more photos like these, any moron can draw a map but a drawing is not result, this is a result and a proof of a work well done

    Oh noes, Ukraine hit a secondary munitions dump. A few months ago it was factories all across Russia (when in reality it was mostly outbuildings and no research or supply was harmed). Then the Moskva sank, jury is still out on that could have been a drone, may have been a missile, could also have been an on board accident. The Ukes got a bridge, they knocked out a tank. They shot down a helicopter. This isn't a video game. It's war. Accidents happen. Terrorist attacks happen. What you must not do is do the enemy's job for them. Take Nikolayevsk and Odessa and drive the Ukrainians completely out of Donestk and surround and seal off Kharkov. These strikes by Ukraine are horse fly bites.
