    Romanian military expert called the miscalculations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which the Russian army took advantage of

    The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) recently made a strategic miscalculation, which was immediately taken advantage of by the commander of the Russian forces in the zone of special military operation, General of the Army Serhiy Surovikin. Romanian military expert Valentin Vasilescu stated this to the PolitRussia portal.

    The first miscalculation is the excessive concentration of Ukrainian armed forces in a relatively small area in the Donbass. We are talking about the area Slavyansk - Kramatorsk - Konstantinovka. Now there is a large accumulation of military equipment and personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Earlier, more than 25,000 Ukrainian reservists from the territorial defense forces were sent to the area. On the Artemovsk-Soledar section, 17 mountain, mechanized, tank and other brigades with a total number of 35 thousand military personnel were deployed.

    Expert Vasilescu toldportal "PolitRussia" that General Surovikin and his staff will not miss the opportunity provided to him by the short-sighted commander of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny. The concentrations of Ukrainian troops in the area will be attacked by missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.

    The second miscalculation is the work of Ukrainian air defense systems on false targets, as a result of which the positions occupied by the air defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were revealed. Thus, on December 29, the RF Armed Forces used unmanned aerial vehicles as decoys before launching massive missile strikes. As a result, the expert notes, the air defense batteries fell into a trap, after which Russian Su-30 aircraft began to destroy them.

    Vasilescu said that the latest massive attack by the Russian Armed Forces only 20% concerned energy infrastructure facilities. The main strikes were delivered against the launchers of the enemy air defense forces, the coordinates of which were determined earlier. In addition, Russian troops attacked a training center in Yavoriv where foreign mercenaries train.

    Has RUssia ever used Napalm? I am guess they could use Napalm or Thermobarics to take out the entrenched AUF, but since Zelensky keeps feeding the meat grinder they are happy to hold of and take the easy attrition.

    Some Ukro sympathizers filmed a huge Z column being moved around Mariupol, in any case this is no secret to anyone.

    From MoA. Sobering.

    Putin used the term war for the first time in a speech not long back.

    Posted by: Peter AU1 | Dec 29 2022 13:45 utc | 23

    After the second attack on Engels, there were reports in the Russian media that Russian intelligence had conclusively determined that Americans and NATO were directly involved in all phases of the attack -- in providing satellite target data, and in guidance of the device in particular. Thus, for the first time there was proof that the US and NATO had attacked Russia itself. That's an act of war.

    It was only a few days after this report came out that Putin referred to the fact that Russia was now at war. He didn't mention the US and NATO, but clearly that's who he was referring to. The importance of using the word "war" was that it notified the US and NATO that they had committed an act of war against Russia and Russia knew it. And in international law, there are all kinds of consequences associated with waging war on another country. It frees up Russia's hand to do a lot of things, if it wants to, against the US and NATO that now would be considered self-defense and lawful under the law. One of those things that would now be justified would be the use of nukes in a first strike.

    I think that's why that simple use of the word was very significant. It was just a short time later that Medvedev flew to China in a hastily prepared meeting with XI. There was a delivery of a personal letter from Putin, and I'm guessing that letter let XI know about the attack and US'/NATO's involvement and that Russia was now officially at war with the US and NATO.

    Where this all leads to, we'll find out soon.

    These past months have been tough, losing cities, car bombing some official's daughter, bombing a bridge, bombing an airfield multiple times with no air defenses, going with a smaller force and now getting reserves making it look like your country does not know what it was doing, than switching generals making it look like top command does not know what they are doing, etc. etc. I am hoping now that things will turn around as in, we got past the humiliating stage from getting further ridiculed by the west with story lines. The turning point will be if we at least capture one city back and keep pushing even if it's a small pace.

    Yes, but its not that hard to understand why.  Serbs have been geopolitically/geoeconomically on the back foot ever since the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and then the USSR, and have been unfortunate to find themselves firmly in the center of the Western Globalists crosshairs when it comes to remaking Neu Yoo-rope into an indentured fiefdom of their evil design.  Yugoslavia was dismantled by the West along ethnic lines so that the constituent regions could be absorbed piecemeal by Western-controlled power structures, ie EU and NATO, and then lorded over by the administrative organs of those Powers (IMF, WB, institutional private capital)  Those such as Serbia who resisted (ie insisted on the "new evils" of national soverignty and independence) were targetted for economic/financial destruction, with military action thrown in where needed. Those Serbs who co-operated with the aggravated serial anal rape of their nation were well rewarded by the 4th Reich Viceroys (money, power, prestige etc) while those who refused were mericlessly delegitimised by the Western propaganda machine, accused of war cirmes, threatened with the ICTY kangaroo "court", and either destroyed or made irrelevent.

    Sucking on the cock of the occupying force for personal gain is an attractive career for some people, but inevitably the worm doth turn, and the balance of power shifts. Just ask the Vichy French, South Vietnamese government, GDR Communist Party, pro-US regime in Afghanistan, Bolivian coup regime etc etc Razz  

    Serb patriots and nationalists (and even normal folks in the street) just need to continue resisting in their own hearts and minds, and keep inscribing names in the Great Book of Grudges, preparing for the day when tables turn and these feckless traitorous liberal cnts can be made to answer for their many trespasses against nation and people.

    The "work" of the Ukrainian air defense is clearly visible.

    Perfectly normal result for a MANPADS without a proximity fuse fitted... cruise missiles are very small targets so direct contact impacts vs small targets is difficult... it is the reason the Russians are moving to airburst 30mm cannon shells and 57mm airburst rounds for use against small targets like missiles and drones.

    So that means Ukie claims without photos can be true okay then.

    Kiev and western claims have proven to be lies so many times they can be dismissed even if they come with photos...

    for the 8th time, HIMARS and Smerch are designed for different roles, they are not comparable. This is just cheap deflection

    The Russian equivalent to HIMARS will be Hermes, but they are not direct equivalents because Hermes has terminal guidance and will be able to hit moving targets and of course will be a fraction of the price of the US system, and wont be used to murder civilians intentionally.

    Call it what you want, the system has proven itself in the field. I don't need to say anything else, so to avoid a pointless back and forth I'll leave it at that

    But what has it proven... other than the west hates Ukrainian civilians on both sides?

    Both fire rockets. But HIMARS has guided rounds which allows better precision as long as GPS is there. Smerch and Uragan are supposed to destroy a large zone. As long as they fire on that zone they do their job.

    You are missing the point... HIMARS is not rocket artillery, it is effectively their ballistic rocket Tochka with a tiny warhead and much less range... and probably more expensive.

    Unguided artillery rockets are for use against area targets... large groups of enemy troops or enemy armour for which you don't have precise locations for each individual target so you fire groups of rockets intended to land in an even spread around the point of aim each rocket warhead releasing shrapnel around its point of impact... the last thing you want is accuracy because in this case accuracy means all the rockets landing in the same place... you might as well have just fired one rocket.

    As I have mentioned before HIMARS is only necessary in the US because they fucked up their attempt at Grad... they went for an expensive tracked vehicle based on a Bradley design that no other HATO country operates... so fine for the US military because they operate Bradley BMPs so they can share parts etc, but the rest of HATO that want M270s have to buy a new chassis based on the Bradley... more money for the US MIC.

    Rocket artillery has good features and bad features... the good... its rate and volume of fire is enormous... you can blanket a huge area in fire and fragments in seconds giving the target little time to take cover and spreading death in high concentrations quickly. It is also good for Chem weapon delivery because it generates higher concentrations of poison quickly too. The bad side is that it is more expensive than tube artillery and needs a lot more support to keep operating...

    HIMARS was needed because M270 is just too expensive for what it is and its mobility isn't that great either despite being on a tracked chassis.

    The Americans tried to make a Smerch and failed.

    At best they created a Tochka with its warhead spread across 12 warheads over a shorter range.

    ATACMS is Iskander with less range and easy to intercept and a fraction of the warhead too.... and Ironically, on HIMARS it can only carry one ATACMS missile, so Iskander has twice as many missiles with almost double the range and about five times heavier warhead that manouvers all the way to the target to evade interception.

    Russia is introducing guided rockets which will make them as good as HIMARS for pinpoint attacks.

    Russia already had guided rockets for point targets but they don't get a lot of use because their rocket forces have a different role.

    The new Hermes missile with a flight range of 100km and terminal homing missiles on the back of a truck with a 6 tube launcher would be a much closer equivalent to HIMARS... and will likely be a fraction of the price.

    It also fires at longer ranges than krasnopol.

    With the massive increases in ammo range with the Coalition I would expect new versions of Krasnopol to reach much much further...

    Himars is doing its job.

    Technically it is... quite a few Americans are making fortunes on this half baked weapon.

    They are still struggling finding them. If they had their air force flying high above enemy rears and using their artillery radars they would be all destroyed in few days.

    You mean how HATO wiped out both ISIS and the Taliban in Afghanistan in the first two weeks after they invaded?

    The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence, just like those iraqi WMDs rumsfeld talked about.

    Absence of evidence of Iraqi WMDs did not prove there were no WMDs, but equally there was no actual evidence to support they had WMDs.

    In this case the Ukrainians themselves admit they are taking losses... but they are liars too... why do they keep asking for more I wonder if HIMARS is so amazingly effective at war crimes?

    And just like himars and M270, not a single vilkha, olkha launcher or whatever has been confirmed destroyed. Why do you think this is? Russians, like most militaries, just suck at destroying long range mobile MLRS.

    The Orcs have shown all sorts of photos including their own destroyed Tunguska vehicles they claimed were Russian vehicles. On the contrary Russian claims seem to be rather reliable, but you ignore all of that to create an argument that deflects from your favourite team getting pummelled in the field.

    This is what a troll does... if a photo is posted of what you are demanding you will claim that is only one vehicle destroyed anyway... if I had such a photo I would not post it because lack or existence of photos doesn't change what you are getting paid for on this forum... do you have shares in the US MIC?

    The Tornados are like HIMARS in the aspect that they are wheeled and can change modules.

    Russia has no need for HIMARS because all their rocket vehicles are cheaper than HIMARs... HIMARS is supposed to be an affordable M270... that is all.

    However, the Tornado uses unguided munitions its is just a wheeled rocket arty that is all. It does have some degree of satellite navigation system but its not like how HIMARS works, you clearly do not know what you are talking about. This doesn't surprise me you have an awful habit of making false statements all the time.

    Tornado is an effective military weapon of war, HIMARS is a perversion created by US corruption... just look at HERMES... why is HIMARS even necessary when you could have better performance (longer range and manouvering warheads to evade enemy air defences, and terminal guidance to allow moving targets to be engaged) in  much smaller missiles on a lighter cheaper truck?

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #35 - Page 7 Army-213

    Also HIMARS can use different ammos bud, no one knew it could use Tungsten shrapnel rounds like it did and there are more surprises.

    Big deal... the target wont know the difference between tungsten shrapnel and steel shrapnel... the speed and velocity of shrapnel is more important that the material it is made from, tungsten shrapnel is a way for the US MIC to claim better performance and charge the US military more...

    In the end you cannot back up your claim that HIMARS is worthless because the facts aren't there now your restorting to cheap deflection tactics.

    It has made an American company a lot of money...

    Tho it makes me wonder did the choppers and planes not have flares or any protection against missiles?

    Flares don't help against ARH missiles, he most likely used R-37s and R-77s for the kills.

    What does "normal Patriot" mean? The first edition was the PAC-1.

    The current operational patriot is what I mean. Like the difference between the S-300P and the S-300PMU2.

    Except the Patriot has not improved that much.

    The PAC-1 was obsolete by the time Desert Storm started and it was PAC-2 that failed to shoot down the Scuds.

    The PAC-3 was the result of that failure, with the design radically modified specifically to hit high speed ballistic threats.

    PAC-3 is hit to kill. Should be able to intercept cruise missile.

    Designed for ballistic threats and not designed to hit low flying targets.

    RF T-80 blasts Ukrainian infantry at close range near Bakhmut

    At 2:57-2:59 the front of the tank has small smoke puffs... at first I thought the tank was under fire, but the smoke grenades going off at 3:08-3:10 seem to be the grenades the tank launched that appear to land in roughly the place the tank was firing its HE shells down the road...

    That's right, they're dead men walking whenever they get in the air. The ones who return in one piece must count their blessings but they only postponed the inevitable. Most of their best and most experienced are dead. They are ony forced to fly for propaganda, their actual effect is negligible.

    At least the kamikazes bravely fought and died for their country against an overwhelming opponent, these urks are just sent to death to serve the Kiev regime and neo-nazi fanatics under their US masters.

    Ironically these pilots are doing Kiev a real service because when they get shot down that is one less aircraft they have to scrounge for parts for and hide and fuel and arm... they likely have thousands of men dedicated to keeping these aircraft hidden yet available to fly, so taking them up into the air and having them shot down will eventually release men for the front line...

    What do you think is in this photo? Oh, my God, these are non-existent guided munitions for Tornado-S systems

    Of course being satellite guided they can only hit stationary targets of a known location which pretty much limits what you can use them for really...

    The other rockets are vastly more useful and effective... and cheaper.

    Would be interesting to figure out if 122 mm and 220 mm rockets are both guided.

    The primary use of rockets is to saturate a finite area with fragments and fire... guided rockets are perhaps 1% of the rockets they would fire...

    Even if an enemy armour formation is detected you would use the top attack sensor fused munitions rather than guided rockets which can't hit mobile targets reliably.

    Anyway, the system outclasses HIMARS in just about every aspect. Neither are any wunderwaffe though.

    The Russian and the American versions are fringe examples of what the Rocket artillery is really for.

    UA is on the defensive and increasingly relies on what can best be described as macro-guerilla tactics. If they stay in one spot a minute too long, it's good night. They make good use of the shoot and scoot-tactics allowed by such a platform, that is true. But that's about it.

    True, and the point Alamo and others are trying to get across is that Smerch and Uragan and Grad and all the Tornadoes are capable of the same shoot and scoot operation.

    The pallet loading system on the HIMARS and M270 is cute but even that is not fast enough to allow two loads of rockets to be fired safely... even with the high speed pallet reloading capacity you fire and then you move, so essentially the fast reloading Pallet system doesn't mean much because when you move you can go to a hidden location and take as long to reload as you please... if you try to make the speed reloading system mean something you will likely get found and destroyed.

    Has RUssia ever used Napalm?

    They call it thermobaric...

    The turning point will be if we at least capture one city back and keep pushing even if it's a small pace.

    The irony is that those special soldiers appear to be wearing HATO uniforms, woodland camo, which is about right... the west is special, but I don't think Russia would do to these guys what they are doing to the nazis.

    it was the nazis that executed this sort of people first and then expanded the net to include all sorts of other types...

    Jinping said :

    Xi echoed Putin’s message of unity, saying that the two countries should “strengthen strategic coordination” and “inject more stability into the world,” according to Chinese state media Xinhua.

    China is “ready to work” with Russia to “stand against hegemonism and power politics” to oppose unilateralism, protectionism and “bullying,” as well as to safeguard sovereignty, security, international equity and justice, Xi said, Chinese state media reported.

    Xi also said China is ready to resume normal cross-border travel with Russia and other countries “in an orderly manner,” Xinhua reported.

    Russia does not do whatever it wants, that is why the Chinese like them, because they are predictable and stable...

    I should add that I know napalm and thermobaric are not the same, but the Russians use thermobaric where the US would use napalm.

    Thermobaric is more powerful.

    The question is whether it's a new or old video?

    These past months have been tough, losing cities, car bombing some official's daughter, bombing a bridge, bombing an airfield multiple times with no air defenses, going with a smaller force and now getting reserves making it look like your country does not know what it was doing, than switching generals making it look like top command does not know what they are doing, etc. etc. I am hoping now that things will turn around as in, we got past the humiliating stage from getting further ridiculed by the west with story lines. The turning point will be if we at least capture one city back and keep pushing even if it's a small pace.

    Better all that, then feeding masses of barely trained troops into Bakhmut, and earlier into endless offensive attempts in Kherson - that got tens of thousands of people killed for no gain

    Either NATO doesn't know what its doing, or it values Ukrainian life less than the cows. Maybe both.

    You can keep your turning points to yourself. If this is called Ukraine winning and Russia losing, then I can only hope it will continue like this.

    Perhaps Russia should just make an offensive in the middle of mud season according to this twat. Rolling Eyes
    Just relax while mobilized get to the front, Russia builds up adequate supply and equipment for them, once the ground freezes then we can talk.

    Russia does not do whatever it wants, that is why the Chinese like them, because they are predictable and stable...

    A quite interesting study is to take a look at Russia's foreign relations. But I mean the real ones, not yapped in the western MSM.
    Just recommend you focus on a map and go from one neighbor to another, step by step.
    What turned out is hilarious.
    Russia not only has outstanding relations with each bordering state other than the west but manages to have it even with countries that are in strong conflict with each other.
    Even in Europe Russia is being seen in a very positive way by lot's of countries, just forced to knee to the Anglosaxon narrative by their own corrupted govts.
    A country can't have this position by bullying weaker nations. It is impossible.
    Each voting in the UN, all withstand voices are de facto pro-Russian ones.
    And what we have left?
    Well ... it turns out that they have allied, great, good or correct relations with SEVEN out of EIGHT billion people living in the planet.
    By being a thug, right?
    To support its narrative, western propaganda must stick to obvious lies, like the "Invasion on Georgia" thing ...
    They are forced to demonize VVP, who is - in Russian political standards - a gentle, predictable, and calm politician.
    RIP Vladimir Volfowitz would bomb the shit out of anyone who dared to blink against the Russkie interests.

    The acting Indian MoFA had a great entry to the matter, while stating clearly that Soviet/Russian relations towards India last for decades and generations. And India could count on Soviet/Russian help always when they needed. In reasonable politics, things are not being created out of anywhere, but being built by years - and those are already built this way.

    An adviser of Helmut Kohl for US/Germany relations said openly of how "US relations" look like towards countries claimed as allies. Worth to watch!

The west is talking of removing your government from you, and you have no say in the matter. Do you hate your country? Do you hate your posterity? Do you hate yourselves?

    Cringy Russian doomers are insufferable twats.

    What I'm most in disbelief about is the suggestion by some people here that Russia abandon Engels airbase, something that will directly impact its nuclear deterrence capability against NATO, because of the Ukrainian drone attacks against the base.
    Wouldn't be surprised if they turn out to be the same people who expressed outrage over the Russian withdrawal from Snake Island and Kherson because of the same Ukrainian tactics.

    Snake Island and Kherson are of limited value if Odessa is not an immediate objective.
    Engels is quite different, as is the Zaporozhia NPP for example.
