    To Hole...

    I see that the Russians really like cats and there are a lot of pictures of cats from the front...
    It is also a fact that the biggest cat lives in Russia.

    Kinzhal missile cover after yesterday's attack. Too bad there's no footage of the arrivals of the missile.

    You really couldn't make this shit up if you tried.

    The US and Ukraine were the only two countries that opposed a UN General Assembly vote on condemning the NAZI ideology. It is no wonder that the US White House bestowed the International Women of Courage Award on Yulia Paevskaya, who goes by the nickname ‘Taira’ who is a member of the Azov Ukrainian nationalist battalion.

    Moscow’s ambassador to the US Antonov "described Paevskaya as a “terrorist cutthroat whose hands are covered in the blood of the elderly, women, and children.” In March 2022, as the fighting raged in the besieged city of Mariupol, which is now part of Russia, Paevskaya “pretended to be a mother of two children whose parents she had killed herself,” and then tried to escape disguised in civilian clothing, Antonov stated."

    Bad days for Su-27's from Ukroshitstan AF.

    Military operation in Ukraine

    The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation reported that a Ukrainian Su-27 was shot down near Maryinka in the DPR

    According to the official representative of the department, Igor Konashenkov, the plane was shot down by fighter aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

    MOSCOW, March 10. /TASS/. The Aerospace Forces (VKS) of the Russian Federation shot down a Su-27 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force near the village of Maryinka in the DPR.
    This was stated on Friday by the official representative of the Russian Defense Ministry, Lieutenant-General Igor Konashenkov.

    "Fighter aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces shot down a Su-27 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force near the village of Maryinka in the Donetsk People's Republic," he said.

    The only reasons for the use of Kinzhal is that you can't track the mig-31 once in the air with satellites so you can't know when the launch happened. And the second is that it hits the target 1 minutes after the launch at those ranges in Ukraine so you can track visually a target (humint or satellite) and destroy it without giving it free time to evacuate or move.

    Imagine a team of generals meets in a building, even in the basement of the building. The mig-31 will launch its kinzhal undetected and 1 minute after it blows up the building with a 500kg or so warhead. Even if you know the launch happened, the time needed to call the generals, tell them to evacuate and them to evacuate will be higher than the arrival time.

    It's a decapitation system.

    It's certainly not to bypass ukro AD. Everytime a kinzhal is used, a top priority target is killed/destroyed.

    I am convinced that the Ukrainians cannot even shoot down the 9M728 missile from the "Iskander-M" system.
    The flight speed of that rocket is over 2000 meters per second, so there is no data that Ukroshitstan shot down any of those rockets. Yes, the H47M2 "Kinzhal" rocket has an even higher flight speed and range, and the range is increased primarily because the rocket does not spend energy (fuel) on separation from the launch unit until flight at the optimal altitude and speed because the H47M2 uses the altitude and speed of the MiG-31K aircraft..

    Chronicle of the Special Military Operation for 9 Mar 2023⚡

    💥 Overnight Russian Forces launched a 👉 massive missile attack on energy infrastructure facilities in #Ukraine.

    The enemy's air defences were once again powerless - targets in #Kiev, #Kharkov and #Pavlograd, as well as in #Zhytomyr, #Volynsk, #Vinnitsa, #Kirovograd, #Odessa, #Zaporozhye and #IvanoFrankovsk regions have been hit.

    🔹#Kiev Region (MAP):

    ▪ Russian troops hit the engine room and boiler room of TPP-5 in #Kiev. The city suffered significant power and communication problems.

    🔹#Russia's Border Areas:

    ▪ In the #Bryansk region, Ukrainian terrorist formations shelled the village of #Rakovka. A dwelling house and a farm building were damaged.
    ➖ Russian air defence forces intercept an enemy drone near the village of #Navlya with no casualties or damage.

    ▪ In the #Belgorod region, the AFU terrorists struck the outskirts of #Shebekino town. Residential buildings have been hit, civilians were not harmed.

    🔹#Starobelsk Direction:

    ▪ There are no significant changes on the frontline. Artillery duels and position fighting continue along the line of contact.

    🔹#Soledar (#Bakhmut) Direction:

    ▪ Wagner PMC units are leading an offensive towards #Bogdanovka, continuing to close the encirclement ring around #Bakhmut.
    ➖ The enemy responds by attempting counterattacks to maintain a ground corridor out of the city.

    ▪ Russian forces evacuate civilians from liberated neighbourhoods in eastern #Bakhmut. The enemy terrorists are shelling the lost areas without regard for the lives of the townspeople.

    ▪ In the south of #Bakhmut, the Wagnerian assault units are engaged in the most intense fighting. At the same time, Russian artillery is targeting enemy positions at the intersection of Korsunsky and Tchaikovsky streets.

    🔹#Donetsk Direction:

    ▪ Units of the Russian Armed Forces continue the operation to encircle the #Avdeyevka fortified area.
    ➖ Russian forces expand their zone of control near the village of #Vesyoloye and fight near the #Krasnogorovka pond.
    ➖ South of #Avdeyevka, the RF Armed Forces, supported by artillery, are advancing towards the village of #Severnoye.

    ▪ In #Maryinka, positional battles continue. Russian troops storm the enemy defence in the western part of the town.

    ▪ The Ukrainian terrorist formations fired barrel and rocket artillery at populated areas of the #Donetsk agglomeration.
    ➖ In #Donetsk, residential buildings have been hit, at least three people were injured.
    ➖ In the morning, the enemy fired rockets from HIMARS rocket launchers at Avto-Express motor transport company in #Volnovakha. A man was killed and another was wounded.

    🔹 #Kherson Direction on #SouthFront:

    ▪ Artillery duels continue along the entire line of contact. Russian forces hit enemy concentrations in #Kherson, #Zelenovka and #Antonovka.
    ➖ In turn, the enemy terrorists shelled the left bank of the #Kherson region. Civilian facilities in Novaya Kakhovka, #Tavriysk and Golaya Pristan were damaged.

    Kinzal is a convenient overkill for the Russians. It works in the current situation, and it's being both tested and showcased to foes, what would happen if it went for the primary target (CV)

    Comes down to whether you can intercept a MiG-31. If you can't, the surface target is fried.

    Good luck intercepting a MiG-31

    Major battle coming Russians dig in. AFU prepares a Counteroffensive of the Bakhmut
    20 brigades are expected to participate in the counteroffensive 2 tank & 3 artillery In total, up to 50,000 - 55,000 troops from north of Soledar to the northern outskirts of Toretsk.

    Kh-22M has a max speed of Mach 3. But when it approached its target it could do a steep dive into the target at Mach 4.5.

    For Kh-32 the steep dive into the target would be at Mach 6+.

    Meaning the figure for Kinzhal would be even more impressive. Perhaps that's the reason why Kinzhal was part of the strike package that included Kaliber. But I don't think that was even necessary as far as hitting the target is concerned.

    Perhaps the underlying idea was to confuse the Ukrainian/NATO air defence systems with missiles that cruise in a swarm at various speed. Makes interception that much difficult even with electronic countermeasures.

    Guess we'll find out where all these reservists that Russia called up are pretty soon, then.

    You would think the AFU would have difficulty mounting a large scale counteroffensive due to the artillery assets Russia has deployed on the Bakhmut front.

    "You would think the AFU would have difficulty mounting a large scale counteroffensive due to the artillery assets Russia has deployed on the Bakhmut front."

    Plus the mud limiting areas of advance.

    Taking out a vehicle on a narrow road/track will make it difficult for those following to get round it, or if its heavy getting the right vehicle in position to push it out of the way.
