    Does T55 have NBC ( especially chemical filters ) protection ? If so then for this reason alone , it is useful to have . Do other vehicles have protection ? I see no gas masks in the photo of Russian troops or trenches . Important because , there are indications that they are a factor now . Iranians must have a lot of gas masks , left over from Saddam war days . Also are the western forces that participate directly in war against Russia , legal or illegal combatants ? Are they as such , eligible for Geneva convention ? Last I looked , war was not declared or discussed against Russia , by any western state parliament ! What to be done with them if captured ?

    Secretary Austin's drivel about Russia being forced to dredge up T-55s and beg North Korea for ammunition demonstrates the rabid inanity of the
    deciders in Washington. These clowns think they can create reality through the force of the drivel they spew. It is sad how people
    take such shit seriously and we have regular discussion about the utility of old tanks.

    Maybe the strike on the massive Diesel stockpile killed it

    There were the same mixed messages before the Ukrainians advanced on Kherson. Casting doubt on its prospects, saying it will be too costly. But in the end they did it when they noticed the Russians were leaving anyway and in fact nearly gone. But the key thing is that they decided to do it without warning or any further rumours.

    I don't say it will be same this time, as unlike in the Kharkov region or Kherson, the Russians aren't leaving anywhere.
    But all these noises and rumours mean rather nothing. The Ukraine understands the value of operational surprise.

    Headless chicken was from Kraken unit

    If true I'd say someone is finally dispensing appropriate admonishment

    Kids have been slaughtered for years on straight and nobody gives a shit, this here should not even be getting noticed in comparison

    Personally I would go with good old gasoline, lasts longer and is self-cleaning

    It's not the Kraken fellow I give a shit about, he's dead now

    But the guy doing the beheading. People like that have no place in the military, all the more so the ones stupid enough to film themselves doing it. And certainly if this isn't an Ukro fake and is true, then the book needs to be thrown at this ISIS-wannabee to dissuade anyone else from the idea.

    A rumor is being published by colleagues that it is the British who demand from Zelensky not to delay the offensive. At the same time , colleagues on April 4 suggested that the offensive would be on the May holidays, and now information has gone online that the British are demanding to start an offensive by the coronation of Charles III (May 6).

    More and more information is coming out that the leak from the Pentagon was controlled and it was the British who organized it, who were familiar with some of the materials that were included in this document so that it would be more like the truth. The goal is simple: to confuse the Russians, put them on the wrong track, and also relax, otherwise they have been preparing very much lately for defense, which posed a threat to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Quite a few, even myself, shared the notion that the leaks were fake to push a narrative that is false and to indeed confirm their own narratives. To try and confuse Russia over this is silly since Russia has its own on the ground intelligence and satellites, so this crap is nothing for them. But it's to push western narratives to the poorly informed.

    As for the British part of it and Charles inauguration, well that's first I heard and possibly true. Who knows.

    But mysteriously when the Russian prisoners-of-war were mutilated and murdered by the Ukrainians you did not show such outrage.


    That beheading was a retribution for earlier Ukrainian war crimes.



    Crypto-Ukrainian pieces of shit like ALAMO of course are supporting you.


    And besides, that beheaded guy was not a Ukrainian, but a foreign volunteer fighting on the Ukrainian side.

    I think the leaks are real. But a lot of the information in those slides is based on poor quality sources like the Ukrainian MoD's publicly released numbers. It is still interesting to see how the US top military brass decide things based on such shoddy information.

    I doubt the US intelligence services believe these numbers though.

    Just an observation of how it looks from the other side.

    Two random materials of Ukr drones striking.





    The second first.
    Post strike monitoring is faked.
    Nothing matches.

    The first lacks any.
    So what we see, is a post production of warming materials, while they lack any tools to monitor the strike effects.

    BTW, TOS strikes something really near, take a look at the elevation.
    It was hit by some toy drone from the frontline at most.

    Not that I am surprised, tho ... Laughing

    Such drones are nasty but the warhead is very small. You need to be very precise to destroy a vehicle by hitting the fuel tank or the inside like those tanks that let their hatches open and receive a grenade.

    Most military armored vehicles can sustain a grenade explosion easily.

    Lancet like are way better with longer range and much better heat warhead.

    However I would underestimate those drones. They can be a real danger for infantry and light vehicles.

    Few hours ago, this map of western Bakhmut was published:
    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #41 - Page 20 Ftsb0RmWIBIDbYb

    Minutes ago, RWA said fighting had already reached Liberators of Donbass street (or as the Ukrainians renamed it recently, "Defenders of Ukraine street", whatever), which is roughly by the Georgian flag in the center of the above image.

    They have sources on the ground, but I don't know, that would indicate a rapid collapse of remaining UA defenses tonight.

    Anyone else heard anything?

    It's surprising that they can't take such city in two days. They have the advantage of aviation and artillery and ukros are hiding in normal houses.

    One shell or one bomb or even one kornet should be enough to clean any house building where they spot ukros.

    He just mistyped 85% as 75%. NATzO has only 11%. The 4% includes Japan, Australia, New Zealand and some small states.

    The US fail in Latin America is becoming epic.

    Just keep SU-34s circling high over head with FAB 500 glide bombs and a couple of FAB 1500s. When the boys meet resistance. Vaporize it.

    Dunno about everyone else but this is the nastiest thing I've seen in the war so far. Looks like some chubs got hit in an American M113 apc. Looks like it cooked off then blew up

    I'm not even sure many in US army itself would be up for doing this especially they won't have air support.

    Without air support they would struggle and with air support then Russian Air Defence is going to a be a real issue.


    That option should never be the case with Russia unless something has gone very wrong.

    They don't store them as museum pieces... they store them to be used... if they have found some uses for them ...what is the problem?

    They are simple to operate and maintain and carry a 100mm gun.

    Does T55 have NBC ( especially chemical filters ) protection ?

    Soviet ones did.

    The goal is simple: to confuse the Russians, put them on the wrong track, and also relax, otherwise they have been preparing very much lately for defense, which posed a threat to the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

    Doesn't really matter if it is true or not because no matter what Russia needs to be prepared for anything, including a counter attack, but also no counter attack.

    The Russians have better information than most of the wests public who get their information from western media and telegram.

    It's surprising that they can't take such city in two days. They have the advantage of aviation and artillery and ukros are hiding in normal houses.

    They have been fighting years in that place... those cockroaches are endemic and not going to leave on their own.

    There are not many weapons that will just kill everyone every time... even nukes don't do that.

    Ignore the small mathematical error

    To be fair there is always 10% who don't give a shit...

    I doubt they did this for nothing.

    Lets not make something out of nothing.

    They already said that last mobilisation was something they had never done before and they found lots of problems and mistakes that needed to be fixed so it works more smoothly in the future... and that is what this is... applying the lessons learned from the last call up so the next call up goes better.
