    It was baby milk formula powder delivered by Caritas.
    Always explodes this way, we saw that in Syria already.
    Russkie monsters were notorious for bombing baby milk stocks.

    UAVs "Geran" hit targets in the Sumy, Kharkov and Chernigov regions this night. Strikes were carried out on a military facility in Kherson within 24 hours.

    ▪Military pilots report the use of a new X-BD cruise missile with a range of 6500 km at targets in Kupyansk and the bridge over the Dnieper in Dnepropetrovsk. They report the destruction of the Ukrainian Armed Forces' crossing across the river Oskol in the Kupyansk direction.

    ▪At the Verbovoe-Rabotino line of the Zaporozhye Front, the enemy again went on the attack: 7 units of its military equipment were knocked out, up to a company of enemy personnel were killed and wounded. The Russian Armed Forces used heavy flamethrower systems. From the ground they write about the low training of the new attacking wave, which may indicate the introduction of poorly trained reserves of the Ukrainian Armed Forces into battle.

    ▪In the Kherson region - the activity of our forces and enemy forces on the islands. The Ukrainian Armed Forces fired at the village Cairy, 9 civilians injured, 1 killed (84 years old).

    ▪From the Vremevsky direction they report the withdrawal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the outskirts of Staromayorsky, the abandonment of which by the Russian Army was presented by enemy propaganda as a significant achievement and a sign of the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s imminent access to the Sea of Azov (90 km away and several lines of defense). Strikes were carried out against concentrations of enemy manpower at a distance from the the front line.

    ▪South of Artemovsk (Bakhmut) near Andreevka, the Russian Armed Forces control the railway, despite the enemy’s statements. In Kleshcheevka, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are trying to gain a foothold in small groups under heavy fire from our artillery. Heavy fighting is underway, the enemy is drawing up reserves.

    ▪In the Kupyansk direction, the Russian Armed Forces resumed attacks in the Sinkovka area after the destruction of the enemy crossing.

    ▪Enemy UAVs were shot down over the Belgorod and Oryol regions within 24 hours. In the Bryansk region, Suzmeika village was shelled, an aircraft-type drone was shot down near the village. In Adler, near Sochi airport, a kerosene tank caught fire for unknown reasons. Enemy missiles were destroyed yesterday over Melitopol in the Zaporozhye region; Ukrainian Armed Forces launched 4 missiles from the HIMARS MLRS at Molochansk. In the DPR, one civilian was killed and five were wounded as a result of shelling by the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

    Norway to transfer about 50 tracked trucks NM199 to Ukraine

    This was announced by the country's Defense Minister Bjorn Arild Gramm. The NM199s can transport ammunition and food in off-road conditions where wheeled vehicles cannot cope.

    With the arrival of fall, the rainy season will begin in Ukraine, and the roads there will simply not exist, they will be washed away. According to the Norwegians, the supplied trucks will help the AFU in these conditions. But our fighters may also need these trucks when they become trophies.

    Kyiv rejected a delivery of Leopard tanks from Germany after discovering that they were defective. pwnd pwnd pwnd

    Ten Leopard 1 tanks, the predecessor to the more sophisticated Leopard 2, required maintenance that Kyiv could not perform because of a lack of trained engineers, Germany’s Der Spiegel reported. As a result, Kyiv said, it had no use for them.

    The German-made, 1980s-vintage Leopard 1A5 with its precise day-night optics and stabilized 105-millimeter main gun is an excellent long-range shooter—and highly mobile.

    What it isn’t, is heavily protected. Its steel armor is just 70 millimeters thick at its thickest. That’s a tenth the protection that the 2000s-vintage Leopard 2A6 enjoys. pwnd pwnd pwnd

    Post  GarryB Wed Sep 20, 2023 3:19 pm

    I wonder if the USA will decide on AGM 158?

    I would say based on Americas response to Russian talks with North Korea that perhaps if Germany sends cruise missiles and America sends ATACMS and other weapons that Russia needs to reconsider the weapons it supplies to NK and Iran and other countries around the place like Cuba etc.

    Perhaps they will listen then.

    Not gonna pretend I am some well read up history nerd with a lot of theoretical "wisdom" under my belt, but isn't it rather typical that big countries like Russia move with a lot of inertia, and seem slow to adapt to rapidly changing circumstances at first, until they sort out an overall formula that works and then start steaming unstoppably to victory after a while?

    But then the countries and groups that react fast often do so with an agenda... the west attacked Syria with a cruise missile strike because if they took the time to find the truth the truth wouldn't justify the attack so they had to get in before someone could point out it was not justified.

    Equally with the EU their falling over themselves to impose sanctions against Russia trying to damage and hurt the Russian economy and individual Russians was all done rapidly and often led to the consequences for the EU to be far worse than for Russia... some of the subsequent changes to sanctions was to reduce the damage to EU countries that earlier rounds of sanctions had caused.

    Taking time to work out what actually happened and who was to blame but also to take the time to plan a suitable response that wont damage you more than it damages those you think are responsible is rather important.

    Have you guys not seen Hang 'em High?


    Over 70 Kilo subs of various modifications have been built so far, and if I am not mistaken Rostov-on-Don now holds the record of being the shortest lived Kilo sub:

    Yeah, you dwell on that. What a meaningless record, what pathetic loser that keeps such records, this is war and your bitching helps no one that isn't a pro nazi.

    T-34s had had operational lifespans measured in days or weeks during WWII... I guess they shouldn't have bothered fighting... if they had surrendered immediately to the Germans their tanks could have much better performance records than they did.

    BTW it has not been in dry dock for the duration of the conflict so there is a good chance it killed quite a few Nazis before being taken out of the game.

    And why was it in dry dock in Sevastopol, of all places? Why not in Kerch, or maybe Novorossiysk? or maybe Nizhny Novgorod? or even in Saint Petersburg in the yard it was manufactured? Why in Sevastopol which is closest to hostile territory of all these places and hence easiest to target?

    Why not use dry dock in Sevastopol? If the didn't hit a military target they would have killed civilians and I for one prefer they hit a Kilo in drydock than civilian targets.

    The improved Kilos have taken a minimum of 2 years from being laid down to being commissioned. If the lay down a replacement sub tomorrow, they will be getting it at end of 2025 at the earliest. Till then they would have to work with the remaining 5 improved Kilos in the BSF. Lets hope these 5 do not get further reduced in the coming weeks and months.

    I am sure they will take great pride in launching missiles at various targets in enemy territory taking the usual care to hit military targets and not civilian targets... unlike their enemy.

    Current scoreline 24/7 for the Ruskies

    Agree and would go further and state they probably haven't crossed Russias try line so it is probably more like 24/6 or something.

    I think the only guarantee that local populations will not be subject to ethnic cleansing , is the actual presence of troops in those areas .

    That is a factor too, the Orcs have already stated that when they get control back of the Crimea the first thing they will do is purge it of pro Russians... so any territory left to Kiev will be ethnically cleansed... so perhaps the reverse should also be a goal that as Russian forces move forward those nazis who run away are never allowed to return, and that making conditions for civilians in the Kiev held areas of the country unbearable could be a later strategy that will improve the situation when it comes time to negotiate terms.

    Looking again, there is like at least 5 mig parked there.

    Are they real or are they decoys?

    Not according to some reverse-loaded colloid drinkers here

    I can understand members not believing anything the west claims... I don't mind people saying the moon landings never happened... because why should anyone believe liars?

    How many months later did it take for NYT investigative reporters to realise Kiev was lying and Moscow was telling the truth about a single attack on civilians... how long before the truth comes out in other cases and it becomes clear that Kiev is lying and Russia is telling the truth.

    Why believe western sources or images... they stoop to lots of BS... if I cared about it I would take the time to look at photos of the Kursk and compare them with these released photos to see if they didn't copy and paste the image to fake the damage to support their story.

    The west cannot be trusted.

    New batteries could do the trick. Or a new version with some extra batteries.

    Or a tow from a bigger disposable drone or a drone that could carry them to high altitude and part of the way to the target and then return to collect more or be reused perhaps.


    Russia is dominating every possible way. It's just there are 50 minutes of the game left still and it doesn't matter how much one side is winning, and also the crowd may yet decide to crash it which is the X factor of the whole thing and why Russia has to be on its guard and prioritize a defensive play.

    The Ukrainian side started with about five teams worth of players but they keep getting taken off damaged and are now playing with reduced numbers with no kicker and no forwards to play scrums. Their best kicker is not on the field and can't play and their best line jumpers are dwarfs so they lose every lineout too.

    They are not in good shape.

    I give the Ukros 3 field goals for all their miserable attempts to score cheap points on TikTok.

    Their problem is that three quarters of the crowd think they are amazing and all have bets on them winning, but crowd support does not score points on the board and when you are losing players like they are no amount of cheering will help them.

    They can win the audience and still lose the game 100 to 9.

    Eh, close enough. Its 10-6 now, and Russia has the ball and the Ukes have no air game and their ground gsme gains a yard (meter).

    I disagree... if the score is the body count we are talking 400K+ vs maybe 40-50K at most... a ten to one ratio or thereabouts...

    @garryb would it make you happier if I compared it to ATACMS

    When you talk about ATACMS then you are not talking about a MRLS... Iskander has two ready to launch missiles... is it an MRLS.

    Hard to believe that a fireball that size was just a bridge. If it was it was a very big munition.

    Big explosion, just after an attack by nazis on a sub and a landing boat using western cruise missiles... I would say Kiev just lost a whole lot more expensive western cruise missiles...

    I must admit it's very sad, for me, anyway, to see Russian-built equipment (especially aircraft) being destroyed by Russian equipment.  I realize the entire situation and it is what it is.  But something just isn't right about it and it's a shame.

    It's imperative for Russian forces to take out as much or more western equipment as possible.  Showing Russian military might and technological capabilities against western-built equipment is imperative, and it seems counter-productive to that concept when seeing Russian on Russian-built destruction.  It's an extenuating circumstance that sucks big time.

    They have hundreds of mig-29 and su-27 parked in russian bases if they want to watch them.

    Those ukro jets arr cruise missile ve tors. Destroying them is easier than intercepting Scalp missiles. Even easier if they are 60km away from the front.

    You see it, you destroy it. That's how war is fought. Thry are important hardware. As soon you detect them you launch anything you have that can reach them.

    Those are 60km from the frontline because Ukrs seems to be incapable of doing better anymore.
    Strikes on fuel storage were quite consistent for a while.

    After increasing its military ties with NK and Iran, why is Russia not doing the same with Venezuela and Cuba in response to Nato crossing red lines in Ukraine? If Putin does not want to risk too much in Latin American countries, then at least he could start at a small scale to at least spook the Americans and display their hypocrisy with reciprocal actions.

    It might distract parts of Washington's focus away from Ukraine, even if Russia armed countries like Venezuela only at a small level or shared military technology. I remember how Western media already panicked, when a bunch of Iranian ships visited South America.

    All the mentioned countries won't stand a week under Murican direct attack.
    Way too weak, in all dimensions.
    Mental&spiritual, to begin with.
    You are yapping for what? Russia to unleash a war, on US doorsteps, using a cannon fodder who "maniana" is a life credo?
    Seriously?
    How old are you?
    Have any of you ever seen anything 500km away from your address?
    What would they do with those Iskanders and S-400?
    Checked the Globus?
    What a <500 km systems can do with the US?
    Other than being sold by bribed officials?
    The case when Russia can have - relatively safe - GLONASS infrastructure there is already a win.
    US sabotage teams can blow it to pieces in a day after decision will be made.
    Grow up, finally. dunno

    ^ That is a very strange cuck reaction considering this is exactly what Kruschev did. And it resulted in missiles being taken out of Turkey. Also, I am not the one that needs to look at a map of Cuba and note its proximity to the US. Cuba is there for the taking and Russia and China are too stupid to do anything with it. Cuba is open to deals with either of them.

    Your mentality is why Russia finds itself in a place that no great power, let alone one of 2 nuclear equals-should find itself in.

    Anyway keep fighting this bureaucratically correct attrition war. While US equipment literally rolls into Russia proper. And while the US builds another army in Poland that is probably going to be sheep dipped overnight and rolled into Ukraine in around 2025. Which Russia will win against. It just shouldn't have to fight this war

    Ukrainian Armed Forces attempted to launch missile attacks on Crimea and Sevastopol.

    🇷🇺 Authorities on the peninsula report that all targets have been successfully intercepted.

    According to the received information, 11 Su-24M bombers took off from the Starokonstantinov military airfield, including five carrying British Storm Shadow/SCALP missiles.

    Around noon, nine bombers separated from the group and remained in the Odessa and Nikolaev regions. At the same time, eight cruise missiles were launched towards Crimea.

    ❗ Reconnaissance from the "Medvedi" private military company (PMC) also reports that two Ukrainian Su-24M aircraft flew at extremely low altitudes over the Black Sea, launching three AGM-160 MALD decoy missiles to divert the attention of our air defense systems.

    ✔ Five enemy missiles were intercepted over Cape Tarkhankut and Belbek airfield. Three Storm Shadow missiles fell in the area of Verkhnesadovoe — the likely target was a former military facility near the village.

    Russian Defence Ministry report on the progress of the special military operation (20 September 2023)


    ▫ In Donetsk direction, the Yug Group of Forces, supported by aviation and artillery, repelled five attacks by assault groups of the 3rd Assault Brigade, the 53rd and 110th mechanised brigades of the AFU close to Kleshcheyevka, Veseloye, and Khimik (Donetsk People's Republic).

    🇷🇺 Authorities on the peninsula report that all targets have been successfully intercepted.

    According to the received information, 11 Su-24M bombers took off from the Starokonstantinov military airfield, including five carrying British Storm Shadow/SCALP missiles.

    Around noon, nine bombers separated from the group and remained in the Odessa and Nikolaev regions. At the same time, eight cruise missiles were launched towards Crimea.

    ❗ Reconnaissance from the "Medvedi" private military company (PMC) also reports that two Ukrainian Su-24M aircraft flew at extremely low altitudes over the Black Sea, launching three AGM-160 MALD decoy missiles to divert the attention of our air defense systems.

    ✔ Five enemy missiles were intercepted over Cape Tarkhankut and Belbek airfield. Three Storm Shadow missiles fell in the area of Verkhnesadovoe — the likely target was a former military facility near the village.

    This calls for more intensive Combat Air Patrol over Black Sea, particularly with Su-35 or MiG-31's.

    The only concern is there is not much can be done on NATO recce flight.

    ^ That is a very strange cuck reaction considering this is exactly what Kruschev did.

    Kruschev dealt with sane people.
    Humans.
    Now you deal with fukin' reptilians - it is only a half of a joke.
    Murican elites are insane. As simple as that.
    Putin made them sober for a moment, saying clearly that the missiles were targeted at any single vault they had built.
    Lasted for some 5+ years, but they obviously dug deeper.
    We need a bigger missiles.
