    Modern warfare training facility of the Russian military. The training facility itself is larger than Johannesburg and Berlin combined.

    ^ Some say that ship footage is an old video from the Bosphorus. 

    And of course it will take time to look at the meta data on the zuluzny video. Could be deep fake . Body dbl. Old. Who knows. The point is , they weren't showing him to buy time. They needed time to concoct something 

    But that isn't stopping the doom cucks from jumping to conclusions of course

    From a Twitter source:

    ChTZ-URALTRAK increased the number of produced tank engines and overtook the best indicators of the post-war period of the USSR

    Under the conditions of SMO, ChTZ-URALTRAK dramatically increased the production of tank engines and was able to achieve volumes that were 12% higher than the best indicators of the post-war period of the USSR. Such success became possible thanks to the competent organization of production.

    Igor Meshkov, Director for Special Assignments of Concern Uralvagonzavod JSC, noted that technical renovation and modernization of production is being rhythmically carried out at ChTZ. Over the past year, it was possible to increase the number of employees by 30% - therefore, the plant works around the clock, producing the products needed by the front.

    I'm curious if they also increase production for A-85 engine for Armata's.

    “It didn’t sink, but there was a hit, there is significant damage to the hull and equipment . Now the Russians are hastily repairing it.”

    I have deleted this post because apparently this is the minesweeper of the 12700 Alexandrite project, not the Ivan Khurs.

    They look nearly alike.

    Ukrainians of course.
    Interesting detail, vid is very similar to the previously released with an attack on Makarov. It was not damaged, even if the materials provided by Ukrs claimed differently and looked like they managed.
    I can only guess, it is some kind of transmission lag, and it is possible we see a dead hand material.
    The other observation, in opposite to Russians, they don't have secondary observation echelon Russkie are using, to present us nice materials both from lets say Lancet homing head and Orlan/Orion that was supervising the attack itself.

    Why? I doubt the will do it until they are ready to start full rate production. Probably working out bugs in the engine as its very compact and a new config.

    It is reported that the Russian military destroyed the dam of the Karlovsky reservoir, located northwest of Pervomaisky near Avdeevka.

    This dam was one of the supply routes for the grouping of Ukrainian troops west of Donetsk.

    The head of Chechnya , Ramzan Kadyrov , said that more than 26,000 Chechen fighters have been sent to the zone of a special military operation on the territory of Ukraine since the beginning of the conflict, more than 7,000 fighters are currently in the NVO zone. He wrote about this in his Telegram channel .

    He stressed that since the beginning of the conflict in February 2022, 12,000 volunteers have been sent to the territory of Ukraine, who underwent an accelerated training course at the RUS base in Gudermes .

    He also said that with the support of the regional public fund (ROF) named after Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov, 1014 units of special equipment were transferred to the needs of the SVO, including 145 armored vehicles, 931 quadrocopters, 344 night vision devices, 325 thermal imagers, 138 anti-drones, more than 50 thousand sets modern equipment, 28,673 means of communication and much more.

    Earlier, Kadyrov said that he reported to Russian President Vladimir Putin on the participation of Chechen units in the special operation, successes, equipment, combat training.

    On February 24, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that he had decided to conduct a military special operation to protect Donbass in response to a request for help from the heads of the LPR and DPR.

    The decision to conduct the operation was the reason for new sanctions against Russia by the United States and its allies.

    Yes, but if you listen to the comments in the background - people are shocked.
    So it was not a mutiny, how some Russian TH cretinos are trying to portray that.
    Looks more like some kind of a personal vendetta excused by the given orders, carried by a single man.
    The female medic (?) that is inspecting the body is shocked either.

    Some materials from the "Belgorod offensive" Laughing

    https://t.me/SIL0VIKI/68106

    Those poor Hohols were served on a silver plate, and the decimation started sooner than they managed to dismount from vehicles on the border crossing area. With different drones monitoring them and correcting the artillery.
    Looking at the precision and speed, I guess Krasnopols are to blame.

    Yet, those bastards tried further to push the agenda of a serious peremoga and offensive...

    Whatever the ship is people are seeing this footage saying it got tagged

    It touched the rear corner of the ship which suggests that explosion we saw in the other video where the drone got hit by a 12.7mm round would have happened near the arse end of that ship.

    I doubt it would have taken the rear off the ship or led to any risk of it sinking... was likely just some superficial damage created by their super weapon.

    What is really amusing is that they have Harpoons and the Ukrainian equivalent of the Kh-35 Uran which they call Neptune, and they have to resort to using sea drones to hit surface ships because western anti ship missiles are useless unless used in enormous numbers.

    What is also interesting is that this EW ship was tasked with monitoring the gas pipelines from Russia to Turkey and the Russian ship was attacked near the Bosphorus strait, which is international waters... the last time the Americans tried their terrorism to undermine Germany and the EUs energy security they did it in Danish waters like cowards, now they are using their Ukrainian proxies to do it using British sea drones... looking forward to the Russian response.

    Using AShMSs require a whole battery/regiment structure to be settled. It emits radar waves for targeting, making it easy to spot.
    It would work, if the whole structure would have been covered by their own AD umbrella - which is obviously not a case anymore.
    Any Neptune or Harpoon offshore battery will live only as long, as Ch-31 takes to arrive. In some cases, the target can be considered tasty enough to get some warm greetings from Iskander or Onyks...

    On the other hand, those drones are inexpensive, hard to spot, hard to intercept, and can bring a big bang for bucks.
    I suppose that Russians must pay closer attention to the Iranian antidrone warfare, again.

    Taking Dnepropetrovsk,  Kharkov, Odessa, and Nikolayev will require:

    1) dismantling of the donbass grouping of VSU

    2) steppe battle through Poltava , driving through donetsk

    3) concentrated effort in Kharkov

    Donetsk is key, because then Russian military can focus on flat land battle, there won't be foliage or urban agglomeration of the scale of Donetsk/Lughansk

    Army went quickly though Zaporozhye and Kherson, showing that flat land is easy to sweep

    But Donbass must be cracked

    Notice most of the missile strikes occur now in Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk,

    Those are next , but donetsk needs to be taken soon
