    Ukrainians and the Death Road to and from Bakhmut.

    To Hole,
    Do you have original size pics of the post 985(2S19 firing), not in 1024x682 resolution quality.
    These are not photos but oil paintings... They can be printed out and put on the wall...

    hey Xeno,

    First off, Hole does post amazing materials.

    Max res i have in archives from an TG source is 1280.
    I suspect Hole's might be the same.
    Fingers crossed his are more high-res tough.

    Here is mine anyway:

    Interesting missile package used by Russia. Kaliber and other cruise missiles could have done the job yet KINZHAL was also used.

    Kinzhal would be used against high priority time sensitive targets... it gives less time to evacuate when it is realised they are on the way...

    I'll provide some context to my previous tweet as to whether there was a need to use hypersonic KINZHAL when Kaliber and other cruise missiles are already doing a great job.

    Together with decoys and fake targets and drones the Ukraine has shown its capacity to hit airborne targets is a bit weak and while they can hit the occasional target, they are really in no condition to stop an air attack of any substantial kind.

    I don't think Kinzhal was used to make sure it reached its target... I suspect it was used to hit the target before those at the target location could be warned of the attack underway.

    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.

    The most successful counteroffensives don't send your counter offense force directly into the strongest part of the enemy force...

    With the boost in aviation I think counter offensives might be in danger of becoming routs...

    Plus the mud limiting areas of advance.

    An attack with hovercraft perhaps? Smile

    Or more likely Zelensky wanting to say to the west that they have started the counter offensive and they need more money and ammo and weapons if it is to succeed... if it fails it is your fault for not properly supplying what we need.



    Scott Ritter seems to think the move to the air force of our bald Russian general means a shift to heavier use of air power... I suspect if Kiev plans a counter offensive in May to try to take back territory that they might get hammered by air power like never before in this conflict...

    If Kiev is planning to attack the region again there is no reason for Russian troops to retreat and leave token forces to man the line... manning the line properly means the nazis arrive at fortified positions properly manned so they will effectively be out in the open with no air power and weak artillery and will be fired upon immediately because any ammo and weapons they can put together in that time so can the Russian forces get even more together to welcome them.

    Why?

    He will just get released again if he gets captured

    Instead of killing them Russians are coddling them

    He asked for mercy and they showed him mercy, but I am sure they made clear their expectations about what he was to do with his second chance, so now if they capture him there will be no mercy.

    He wasn't a nazi AFAIK, but clearly wants to kill Russians either way... footage of him in a patrol is not operating in a rear area helping civilians.

    Given their track record so far I hope they brought a lot of ass-lube

    Patrick Lancaster. A walk a kilometer from the frontline. Some dead Ukr bodies still laying in the streets. One at 5:28. Then there's another one randomly between 2 houses at 14:54. Just shows what its like near the frontline. Not all the bodies get cleaned up yet.

    Exactly! Idiotic assumption - different types of cruise missiles that cruise at different speed being used to confused the air defence system. jocolor

    Ukraine despite being armed with several western SAM systems like IRIS-T is finding it difficult to intercept even 3M-54 Kalibr. Why does Russia need to "confuse" their air defence units with cruise missiles that travel at supersonic or hypersonic speed?

    That sick troll (who for some unexplained reason doesn't get banned) often makes it a point to demean Russian weapons. Speaks a lot about their poor upbringing. Russian defence engineers who had the misfortune of having to work with these Indian clowns have a similar opinion about them.

    That would be Martyonov-tier of demagogy. I think Pacific fleet marine infantrymen did quite well around the datchas and they had incursions. Supporting units of newly formed battalions had harder time.

    Russian soldiers crossed Bakhmutka, 03.11.2023.

    Rossiyskaya Gazeta: Russian soldiers crossed Bakhmutka and break through to the center of Artemovsk.

    Russian assault formations managed to force the Bakhmutka River, now they are making their way to the center of Artemovsk (the Ukrainian name of the city is Bakhmut), Russian military correspondents report.

    In addition, in the northern part of the city, the fighters were able to enter the territory of the Artyomovsk Metal Processing Plant (AZOM). Here, Russian forces are advancing deep into the industrial zone, writes Rossiyskaya Gazeta.

    In the south, Russian units are advancing from the forest plantations and the Kvadraty region, writes the Telegram channel "Operation Z: Military commissars of the Russian Spring." Also, according to them, east of Ivanovskoye, Russian forces are moving forward, intending to bypass the village and enter the T0504 highway (Pokrovsk-Konstantinovka).

    Earlier, the commander of the Akhmat special forces, the deputy commander of the second army corps of the People's Militia of the LPR, Apty Alaudinov, said that the armed forces of Ukraine and the NATO leadership were preparing an operation , intending to attempt to unblock Artemovsk (Bakhmut).

    The Stormer is a lightly armoured vehicle (like most APC types without ERA) - it would make very little difference where you hit it.

    Mind you the wheels would probably give you the best protection.

    I hear lots about how Russia lacks drones from Mercouris and others to the point that China is brought up as a supplier.
    This does not hold water. Where is the yammering about shortages of drones by frontline-associated "celebrities" like
    Prigozhin? The "crappy" Lancet has been used extensively and is no worse than anything supplied to the Kiev regime
    by its NATzO owners. It appears to me that Russian drones (including the adapted Iranian ones) are more effective. If
    they were in serious deficit of supply, then they would not be making much of an impact.

    Also, the use of Kinzhal missiles is clearly to penetrate reinforced targets and not to defeat failing Ukr anti-missile systems.
    People seem to think that the ludicrous claims by the Kiev regime to take out over 100% of the subsonic missiles are legit.
    This deference to western approved propaganda is chronic.

    Russia is lacking in heavy drones (drones like Reaper) etc and recon drones that much is true and The Russians themselves stated this, I don't know why you are trying to defend it when the very guys your white knighting for have said your wrong on the fact

    The first Leopard 1 tanks from Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands will be handed over to Ukraine in early May. The transfer of 80 to 90 tanks is expected during 2023.

    Head of Danish Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen said.

    Yes, technically it will be much easier for Pantsir, Tor or even BUK to shoot down a JDAM than a HIMARS.

    However, this video doesn't provide any evidence that JDAM was used. In fact this same video was used by other pro Ukraine reporters to suggest that a Russian command centre was neutralized using drones.
