    From every aspect the situation is slipping out of Ukraine's hands.

    Well, according even to western publications the M1 will arrive too late and will change nothing.
    Which means propably that the Biden regime gave orders only to use the tank well behind the frontlines.

    Heard that was the story on the Chieftains also... alas Nazi's are not very bright!

    Epoddubny:

    The enemy continues to lose combat aircraft: over the past 24 hours, two more Ukrainian MiG-29s were shot down. Russian air defense has worked.

    Losses of front-line fighters of the Ukrainian Armed Forces have become a mass phenomenon in recent days. Mig-29 is one of the most common models of Soviet aircraft, which are owned by about 30 countries around the world. Even at the start of the Russian special operation in Ukraine, a number of Eastern European countries pledged to transfer their MiG-29s, which were hanging on their balance sheets, to the Kyiv regime.

    Judging by the number of destroyed vehicles - and there are already nearly two dozen of them over the last week - old fighters from Europe did reach Ukraine, but turned out to be completely powerless against the Russian Aerospace Forces and anti-aircraft gunners.

    Watch carefully what is used on them. Frame by frame. 01:24-01:25 timestamp. You will love this.

    Also, they were saying that Russians were digging tunnels, this was bullshit. Told you, if Ukrainians are saying what Russians are doing, it means they are the ones doing it. Russians smoked them out from their own tunnels.

    Anyways, for you, I see you are in the euphoria-doom cycle. Break it, temper expectations. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

    From here now on, I don't have a clue how it will go, guys will be ears deep in mud so it will be drone hunting season with low foliage and shit mobility.

    The turret bustle is a total weak spot on this tank. You see the initial cook off followed by the secondary one. So there is not enough separation of the
    bustle from the interior of the turret.

    As a result of fierce and bloody battles, the #Russian Armed Forces established control at the strategic height of Terrikon in the north of Avdiivka. There is panic the 🇺🇦. They were never able to achieve such a lightning-fast result in their time in the Zaporozhye direction.

    Bullshit. At least in the case of the Leopard 2. There are Leopard 2A6 being used in Ukraine. Only more modern variant is Leopard 2A7 which is only available in homeopathic amounts.

    Still tanks are stripped out of communication. Look how tank commanders are using fucking walkie-talkies... I am not sure what else is stripped.

    Anyways, for ATGMs, mines, drones and Krasnopols it doesn't matter.

    A hit at that angle would have pierced the blast door, sending a lethal jet of flame that would burn everyone in the fighting compartment. The worst part is the flame pressure would not be high enough to kill outright so the victims would be roasted alive.

    Bad way to go.

    I think you are misunderstanding what he is trying to say...

    I take that as meaning the Americans are stripping their Abrams tanks they are sending (they are sending old models with no new upgrades.. the Americans themselves have essentially admitted this...), and they stripped them because they fear them being compromised after capture the way the Leos were compromised after they were captured. The leopards sent to battle probably didn't have their top secret communications and battle management systems included or the latest ammo, but I doubt they removed linings and armour layers.

    Not that Russia has a lot to learn from western armour it s more about their internal layout to work out where best to shoot them and with what.

    It is nothing more than the western supremacy syndrome powered delusion.
    It's goal is to fool the audience about M1 having some supa dupa technologies.
    And while taken out, if the tank will be turned into bbq owen, they can always continue to spread the shit about how it is because it was downgraded.
    Aside from the communication devices, there is perfectly nothing secret or supa dupa in any of the western tanks.

    US M1 Abrams was penetrated frontally by the RPG-29 in Iraq. Back then the US were crying that the Russians had sold the Iraqis the Kornet, breaking UN weapons sales sanctions, and that was why they were being able to penetrate the tank.

    For reference the RPG-29 is supposed to be able to penetrate 750 of RHA while the Kornet can penetrate over 1300 of RHA. And the RPG-29 penetrated this precious "US only" M1 with super duper depleted uranium armor package.

    "MOSCOW, October 25. /TASS/. Russia used the S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile system (AAMS) in conjunction with the A-50 early warning aircraft (AWACS) during a special military operation (SVO) in Ukraine. A source close to the Russian military department reported this to TASS.



    Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated that the Russian armed forces acquired anti-aircraft missile systems that shot down 24 Ukrainian aircraft in five days.

    “During the SVO, Russia used the S-400 Triumph air defense system in tandem with the A-50 long-range radar detection aircraft, which ensured the success of using the system against enemy aviation,” the agency’s interlocutor noted. TASS does not have official confirmation of this information.

    According to the agency's interlocutor, the S-400 air defense system was fired at its maximum range at targets that at the time of destruction were at an altitude of approximately 1 thousand m, while new warheads of anti-aircraft guided missiles were used.

    About the air defense system

    S-400 "Triumph" (according to NATO codification - SA-21 Growler) is a Russian long- and medium-range anti-aircraft missile system. Designed to destroy air attack and reconnaissance weapons (including aircraft made using stealth technology) and any other air targets in conditions of intense fire and electronic countermeasures. Adopted by the Russian Armed Forces in 2007.

    The system is capable of hitting aircraft and cruise missiles at a range from 3 km to 400 km, and ballistic targets flying at speeds of up to 4.8 km/s at a range of up to 60 km and at an altitude of up to 30 km.

    The target detection range is up to 600 km, the speed of targets hit is up to 17.3 thousand km/h, the number of simultaneously fired targets is up to 36 (up to six with one air defense system), the number of simultaneously guided missiles is 72."
