    The imbecility in the posts to the Zoka tank tweet is pure cringe. People who can't use their brains to reason based in information.
    They need their precious "free" media to tell them what to think. Unfortunately most humans are in this category. Thinking must
    be just too much effort.

    T-62 has a great potentiel. A new turret wouldn't be bad with a better protection of the crew against internal explosions like on t-90M.

    The refurbished T-62 likely outperforms most of the Abrams tanks. Even depleted uranium armour is crap against modern anti-tank shells.
    Reactive armour is your only hope and most Abrams don't have it. The updated fire control and detection systems do the job. But fanboi
    wankers don't have a clue and think that NATO tanks without reactive armour are the bestest in existence.

    BTW, apparently Ukraine only has 4 Leopard-2 tanks. So the talk about 12 already at the front is fantasy fiction. There is no point
    dribbling a handful of tanks to the front. If they are going to get value out of them, then they need to assemble the 300 for the same
    offensive. But we know that these offensives are hot air. Russian forces are not going to be withdrawing to enable a Kiev regime "win".

    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 Reaper and Predator drones are discontinued. They are good for standoff surveillance and peace time surveillance. But what can they do that satellite surveillance or Posideons don't? Seems to me that these oversized drones are just fun toys to piss away budgets on. But they are probably useful in some niche situations.

    Is filling the skies with Russian versions of Reapers going to be some big game changer ? How? They are too vulnerable to air defense.

    It was already answered bro.
    62s is the last tank made for a mass-mobilized army to use.
    A standard training cycle was around 5 weeks.
    Standard.
    Not a speedy one, as made at Świętoszów.
    It is effortless to operate and uses a phenomenal easy to maintain engine.
    Plus it uses bras body rounds that are quite hard to cook if penetrated.
    Plus it has been extremely modified in the 80s, so the warehouses are full of quite effective rounds of all types for them.
    Plus it uses an GLATGMs.
    kvs is a bit on high combining it with M1, but the difference is not so big as one would imagine.
    And surpasses the Leo1 to be delivered by 2 decades Laughing

    Russian artillerymen destroyed a detachment of mercenaries leaving Artemovsk, 03.11.2023.

    Military correspondent Rudenko announced the destruction of a detachment of mercenaries leaving Artemovsk.

    A detachment of foreign mercenaries trying to get out of Artemovsk (Ukrainian name - Bakhmut) was destroyed by Russian artillery fire, military commander Andrei Rudenko said.

    Rudenko reported on the Telegram channel that the Nazi detachment, which included foreign mercenaries, was destroyed by artillery fire in the Russian Armed Forces while trying to leave Artemovsk.

    Earlier, Yevgeny Prigozhin said that Russian forces approached at a distance of 1.2 km from the administrative center of Artemovsk.

    Because newer models are being designed thus, there is no reason to continue their production.

    Also.....are you comparing heavy attack drones with satellites and underwater drones.....Um what?. I could answer your question in hundreds of ways here, but they can attack ground targets for one.....

    By that respect aircraft are too vulnerable to AD and so why make those.

    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.

    The Kinzhal is a quasi-ballistic missile, pretty sure it will show up on NATO radar after launch

    It still won't be enough time to do much about it though

    Exactly. The stealth hypersonic missile is Zircon. Khinzal isn't but it's necessary to reduce cost but still extremely effective.

    The story about strikes on NATzO shadow commanders in Ukria is likely true. A bunker buster used on targets in Kiev has no
    other interpretation. There are no munitions bunkers in Kiev and none of the civilian power infrastructure requires use of this missile.

    People wanted Kiev command centers to be bombed. That would be pointless and ineffective. Striking the NATzO managers with
    the right sort of missile is what is needed and apparently has been delivered. It would make sense if Russia was building up a picture
    where these managers operated to maximize the deletion.

    We'll have to wait for NATzO's response.

    Russian forces cut off all supply lines for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artemovsk, by Vera Basilaya for VZGLYAD. 03.11.2023.

    Russian assault squads cut off a major supply route for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artemovsk.

    Russian forces have cut off the last major supply road in Artemovsk (Ukrainian name - Bakhmut) for the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), the AFU are forced to use country roads, military correspondents report.

    According to the authors of the Telegram channel "Military Correspondents of the Russian Spring" , PMC "Wagner" approached the route along which the Bakhmut Ukrainian group was supplied, and almost cut it, taking it under fire control. Ukrainian soldiers are forced to use country roads, Rossiyskaya Gazeta writes.

    Also, according to military correspondents who refer to Ukrainian analysts, the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the city are in a critical situation, there are fierce battles.

    The publication notes that Wagner PMCs are simultaneously expanding the northern flank to the west, attacking Bogdanovka and seeking to bypass Khromovoe from the east.

    Earlier it was reported that Russian assault formations managed to cross the Bakhmutka River, now they are making their way to the center of Artemovsk.
