    yeah, I know, all what, 200 of them?

    The only best guess I got is that they will give what they can to Poland to take west Ukraine and that ends Ukraine as a state.

    But we have seen how spineless NATO is.  They just keep saying a lot, then backtrack after realizing how stupid they are.  And then in the end they give a bunch of outdated or non working equipment to Ukraine.

    NATO invaded Ukraine at least as early as 2014, most likely earlier. It's just that it is clandestine because NATO are loud mouth cowards.

    And that's the point.

    They speak out loud a lot. And they say that they will do this or that. Yet, here we are and still have people fooled. Most of the promised weapons ended up in the middle east and Africa anyway. They are training Ukrainian pilots and for what?

    Lol

    Anyway, I'll let people live in constant fear by what liars are saying again and again.

    That's what they would do if they were smart. The Anglo satanists are manic and have maximalist goals. There's nothing rational about them. They are running on extremist energy in the same way that Hitler did.

    This whole thing was about taking back Crimea since 2014 and is to this day. Yes its insane but they are insane. And they will not give up

    Did you forget about what happened in Kharkov and Kherson ?

    Nothing Nato says about timelines is true. The tanks will be on the frontlines before the end of the month. Will Russia be ready. I sure fucking hope so. But I thought that at the start of the war too. I thought they'd have an extra 100'000 troops ready to go if Wagner, the Chechens and the Donbas militia couldn't finish what was started. But they didn't

    To be fair bro, lots of us did some assumptions earlier. And lots of them proved invalid. To begin with, the war itself, that a lot of us called a nothing burger - including myself.
    What makes a difference in a type of person, is if someone can just admit that he was simply, humanly wrong.
    Or will continue to be an asshole.

    Do we separate the declaration from the facts? Laughing
    Because if it comes for declaration, the number is serious. About 450pcs.
    The issue is that half of them are either outdated or shockingly outdated. Sending a soldier into the battle in Leo1, against Russian AD2023 mechanized troops and aviation, is a death sentence. Usually, when things are calming down, officers get sentences for things like that.

    The execution video of Russian POW is grisly

    But why are they surrendering? If you get caught you will be executed

    But there is a naivety from the leadership to Russian troops about who they are fighting

    Take the gloves off, and level these ukros

    Wagner understands how to fight these, so why doesn't MOD start treating them like wagner does

    If there is a unit which is wounded, or combat ineffective the VKS must come in and support that 1 unit, no matter if it's a company, or squad - even if the squad has no chance of survival,

    Better to annihilate the enemy then allow the uniform to be mocked like this

    What happened in Kharkov and Kherson?

    You don't mean when Russia did an orchestrated pull out almost 2 weeks before Kiev pushed in and claimed fake victories.

    Kiev is yet to win a battle when the Russians choose to defend.

    What happened in Kharkov and Kherson?

    NAFO incels masturbation party on twitter about the great peremoga.

    But you know, we are talking the people who live in alternative reality.
    They claimed that Russkie are going to conquer Kiev in 3 days, to call a great defeat when Russkie never even started.
    Fiesta about non existing victories in non existing battles.

    It is a hell of a fun to watch, especially if we realize that from the very beginning if Russkie really wants to have some place, they just do.
    Slowly, steadily do.

    Ukro nazis should be wiped from the earth

    I think the executions indeed happened in Svatovo - Kremennaya area

    The most of the Russian blood has been shed in this area - countless videos of the bmp crew shredded, of the army group executed by mercenaries , and now a full detachment drilled in the heads by ak47s

    That area by Liman and Kupyansk should be carpet bombed

    In fact when a squad is dangerously close to annihilation, they should call army aviation and KA52 should come , with precise weapons to blast these scum

    If precise weapons are to be used, it is in situations like that, guys are surrounded unable to escape, send the airpower and start working with IR, get drones over the surrounded detachment and call in krasnopol strikes

    But somehow these recon groups always end up executed when caught

    So a new camouflage pattern has been developed specifically for the SMO, called "Semitsvet" (seven-color):

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #38 - Page 4 756758853507315

    Clearly Multicam-derived, but not identical. Multicam is pretty ubiquitous these days, everyone and their mother uses it it seems like, all over the world. Russian SF has used it since at least 2008.

    Of minor interest, the company that developed it and that just started mass-producing it is called Gardariki, the old Norse name for Rus' lands. It appears to be a start-up by a 22-year old guy who did his military service in the legendary Preobrazhensky regiment.

    Anyway, the first batches are to be shipped out to the military this week.

    Russia shouldn't be too dismissive of these weapons shipments. Because there's nothing true about what is going on. They are always just a nuisance but they cost time and lives for Russia which is unacceptable.

    The truth is that whether they have HATO crews or not,odds are good they won't see what kills them, and talking them up as an escalation is useful because it can be used to justify further advances and expanding captured territory... especially in the areas the west is interested in economically.

    Begs the question of why it wasn't leveled earlier

    They will have an enormous number of things they can target. Kiev's actions pushed it to the top of a list.

    The problem is the population in Kharkov, Odessa or Nikolaev, because even if the Russians take all those cities, a large part of the population will still leave them.

    And that would be a problem why?

    I would say nazis and anti Russians leaving would be a solution (though not a final one if you get my drift).


    After that, the Russians need to seize Istanbul and have an open entrance to the Mediterranean Sea and a "clean" exit from the Black Sea

    The Turks are the only reasonable members in HATO. Not best buds, but will talk and stick to what they agree to.
    Good enough, unlike the west.

    Nothing Nato says about timelines is true. The tanks will be on the frontlines before the end of the month. Will Russia be ready. I sure fucking hope so. But I thought that at the start of the war too. I thought they'd have an extra 100'000 troops ready to go if Wagner, the Chechens and the Donbas militia couldn't finish what was started. But they didn't

    Even if they send their next generation tanks they haven't even built yet how will they survive Russian air power and artillery?

    Kh-38 missiles with tv guidance have a range of 40km and a 250kg warhead. Kh-29, Kh-25, LMUR, Vikhr, Hermes, Khrisantema, even artillery rockets with dumb unguided HEAT submunitions and not to mention drones and rocket laid landmines.

    Russia has an enormous range of options including RPG family weapons and Kornet and even new toys to test.

    Throughout the past centuries, the West has always thought that it was the right time to start an expedition to the East.
    The result was always the same and the West always came back with a huge sausage in its back.
    The Russians did have great casualties in those conflicts, but they were always the winning side.
    Although I am not someone who hates someone because of a religion that is not like my religion, the fact is that the Anglo-Saxons (antichrists) are bothered by the Russian Orthodox Church, which is the BIGGEST reason why Russia is the way it is.
    Throughout the centuries, Western invaders-parasites and the red vermin tried to destroy Russia and russian identity, but they all ended up in the dustbin of history, so I have no doubt that the same will happen this time.

    Can't really tell from that still but yeah it's inevitable. Took a while though (if true).
    I don't think it will take that long to see burning Challengers and Leopards, but I not the mighty Abrahams though.
    It will probably arrive too late.

    Difficult to say...could be exploding and burning ERA or more likely the missiles attached to the turret are cooking off. The tank can still be intact...we don't know.
