How many years after the USSR did others deploy helmet mounted sights in a jet fighter? Did you know you need to learn Russian to work on the space station?

    KA-52 might ignore dismounted infantry and light up MRAPs and tanks, but then again, what now? Wait for bounding fire MLRS on the treeline? That is so stupid, so rushed, can’t believe NATO greenlights this

    Deadly tactic.

    Destroy the vehicles. Enemy troops have to leave them and continue on foot. Level the area with a MLRS salvo with submunitions to kills any one there.

    Yesterday, multiple Russian TG channels started a panic about "Ukrainian offensive".
    24h passed, some fog perished, and it turned out - again - that the official Russian MOD briefings are the best sources of info.
    Not only by today, we can watch multiple materials made as battlefield recon, but even counting the Ukro pulverized.

    They have been decimated, again.
    In most of the cases, haven't seen the enemy.
    Artillery just beat the shit out of them, and considering the accuracy, they have been welcomed with precision guided rounds.
    Russkie just await them.
    Poor hohols won't even notice what hit them.
    They really don't care about losing a whole battalion for nothing other than stage some fakes.
    Only by counting, we can clearly seen they have irretrievably lost at least 20 pcs of heavy equipment ...
    They are throwing ad hoc assembled companies only to make them perish in artillery strikes like fukin' flies in the fire.
    It is unfuckinbelievable.

    Mercorous makes mistake to quote Cassad as Cassad claims Ukraine captured areas in their little counter offensive when I am reading they have not. Cassad has a habit of doom and gloom.

    The best option they have is to cancel, and dig in,

    If they proceed , given from what we have seen, it's gonna be a turkey shoot -

    Dispersing their forces will end just as we have seen

    And concentrating them in one area, could be even worse, leaving Zaporozhye and the roads to Dnepropetrovsk completely undefended

    I would not go through with this if I am UKR command

    That frontal picture seems to be fake, but top one is real (according to Russian sources) Marines said that they will burn the tank down if they won’t be able extract it.

    If I was lancet operator, I would aim for left rear end roof for fireworks.

    So these pictures and the video… it’s not a Leo, but 3 AMX-10RC abandoned. Explains the weird camo.

    No point capturing really.

    in the picture a tank on tracks, the amx-10rc is a wheeled platform with a cannon...

    It looks more like a Challenger-2 to me

    This is 2 more.

    The staggered hatches on the turret do look Challenger like. But

    It's an AMX-10, hull profile matches as does hatch placement and lack of bore evacuator. No idea of context, could have been taken anywhere although it looks like a still from a drone video.

    Photoshop tool makes exactly this beautiful artwork. So why would anybody willing to convince people need to blur an image to do so?

    Conclusion: it’s probably nothing related to the subject (likely not in ukraine and not now).

    Front of the hull, the angles.. it matches french trash. You can pierce the frontal armour with a wet finger.

    We will see if marines will risk and come to check them or drop nades into the hatches

    ⚡Ukraine created a new vehicle, the BMPT-62.

    Combination of the body of the T-62 tank and the turret from the BMP-2.

    RuAF shot down a plane of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the direction of Kherson.

    Today, another attempted river landing of the AFU in the area of Kherson has failed. Ukrainian landing units were left without air support.

    Ukrs got a small hold on Novodonetskoye near Vremyevsky

    It seems there indeed was a counterattack - 20 tanks lost, but they are bringing up everything to that position

    In this case, they seem to be moving to the concentrate in one area

    If airpower keeps the rate , 20 tanks in one day, it will be a disaster for Ukraine

    Ukraines terror raids in Belgorod and Bryansk really don't make sense

    even if they were oriented to forcing Russia to reinforce the area and take troops from the south

    It does not make sense as Russia can use conscripts to defend the state border

    The law says conscripts cannot be used if there is not a war, and the whole purpose of the "SMO" is to make a clear distinction

    but the law clearly says that conscripts can be used to defend the state border even during a state of undeclared war

    So no troops have to be moved to defend the border regions, they can just take conscripts garrisoned at Voronezh and Valuyki,

    In fact I think the artillery used against terror DRG are conscript batteries
