    But SURE history remembers MULTIPLE cases when the interception was made by ramming. Chinese are notorious with that, remind me when they killed a P-8 the last time? wrote:

    That was not intentional, and afik the pilot of the chinese plane died.

    Its a shame the Russians say there was no collision. Surely there had to be some minor damage on the SU, so claiming there was no collision damages Russias credibility for no reason whatsoever. I would also say the fuel dump was not well executed, esp considering there were 2 planes and one could have guided the other for a effective fuel washdown.

    How TF does the su 27 contact ONE prop spinning at however many RPM's and also not touch the verticals? The prop part is nonsense

    You can see a bent prop and the angle at which the 27 came in shows it possible, basically, the drone is perfectly flat, and the su-27 goes over it sideways directly between the verticals. The very tip of the su-27's wing clearly hit the pro.

    I don't blame you for being doubtful that is like a one in a million odds right there.

    Now I don't believe personally that alone downed the drone (Like if it hit the engine right behind the prop sure, I have seen Jets fly fine with half broken wings), unless there was some larger impact that I am unaware of, that little bend to the prop isn't going to make the drone crash.

    That said the SU's wing did hit it

    A network of cameras monitoring the US airport in Jesionka near Rzeszów and along the railway lines running towards the border with Ukraine was discovered recently. The cameras were connected to the internet and reportedly sent the data to Moscow. 6 people have been arrested.

    My thoughts? That's fucked up, that's my thoughts, infantry is fucking drop like...
    I don't know, our infantry is being mowed down, I don't even have words.
    We have guys, dammit, who were there few days, in the damm infantry they say that russians are coming out as if to hunt bunny habbits.

    -But they are being "dropped" or no?

    "Dropped" of course, but nevertheless, they are coming out more prepared while our guys have 3 day training, they are taken to Kharkov for 3 days, let them shoot 2 magazines, and then sent to Bakhmut as an "assault unit", **** this shit, what "assault detachment"?
    What kind of a "stormtrooper" can be created in 3 days?

    Nazi offensive:  Austin said there is no time to waste.. weapons are transferred 24/7  and logistics work too. Surely many
    Ukrs are decimated near Bakhmut/Artemovsk but not all only a part of ingress stream so Nazis are actually building forces to attack Russians. How do you think Russian staff wants to prepare for this?  Im sure they know better then anyone else what's cooking.

    Lol Austin is again speaking out of his ass. As suck dick, uh sec def, he is a lobbyist for the US MIC. He is using Bakhmut as a fundraiser, of which he and his lobbying budies will pocket considerable sums of money. There isn't going to be a spring offensive any more than there was a fall offensive or a summer offensive or a spring offensive.

    The offensive will vn huge i think given the gear that ukr has recived and given the massive mobilisation. This offensive might decide the outcome of the war.

    This I gotta see. No airpower, no ability to stop Russian drones, rockets, or artillery, old men and boys, a battered logistics system, its not so much of an offensive as it is Jonestown writ large.

    Note also in Holes second photo that there is a 'lump' on the left of the vertical stabiliser plus what looks to be a stub aerial at the front of the open hatch. Neither are in the first photo.


    From MoA poster, i remember that the Su-27 were supposedly near the Reaper for over 30 mins, hence the 19 passes mentioned below. The US had plenty of time to shut it down.

    Even the usa released video seemed questionable , there was 19 passes as such stated it shows 2 and vid cuts out when hit so no i never saw the bent prop except for a few stills. who knows but empire of lies cant even lie well anymore

    no attack on anyone, just my opinion.

    there is an active frontline spanning hundreds of miles.
    active engagements that sometimes are fought out face to face between RF and Ukrainian forces.

    But everyone is captivated because Russia bumped an U.S Drone into the Sea.

    The U.S is not all-powerful. Their forces not untouchable.
    They can be destroyed and die just like the rest of us Mortals.
    "oh no!, they bumped an U.S Drone out of the sky!"

    Wikipedia has an entire post on it already. what the actual ****?.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2023_Black_Sea_drone_incident

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #40 - Page 12 Captu139

    My opinion on this:
    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #40 - Page 12 Pathet10

    People have this impression the U.S are still the "world police"
    In quotations, as i do not remember an U.N vote on that ever.
    like any self-righteous asshole they appointed themselves that role.

    I have seen enough in Afghanistan alone to testify the U.S Military is an corrupt empire that tries to enforce it's will around the world is actually on the brink of collapse.

    They are specialists at 4 things:
    1. Overestimating themselves.
    2. Underestimating their enemy.
    3. disproportional use of force.
    4. cry until eternity when they are for once on the receiving end when world events happen.

    If they insist on trying their luck with Russia. They should go ahead.
    I have seen what happens when things do south, they panic and lose C&C discipline and control.
    That was Taliban in an environment the U.S Controlled in almost all aspects.

    I really do not see the gay unicorn rainbow club going face to face with the LPR/DPR/RF guys that jump into Ukrainian Trenches to shoot them in the face if they have to?.
    Everyone here has seen the shit "our" guys do right?.
    if not, let me know. I got some highlights that make it into the classification "Hero".

    Russia's reach goes further than the U.S Nazi Swine chessboard pieces in Ukraine

    Next time a Global Hawk is over the Black Sea, they should send a Tu-160 at max speed over the thing. If it's too high, a squadron of MiG-31s.
