    Shelters are one thing, the exact location of the Mig-31K is another. Why are these two standing exactly where they stood?

    Oh, look here, I'm waiting for you. What the ****?
    Are Russians too stupid to change positions more often?
    Do they have to be visible on the presentation plate?

    If they cannot secure Crimea, then the effort is completely absurd.

    Finally build Tu-214 Awacs, 24/7 service, rebuild S-300PMU2 if necessary, pave Crimea with TORM2! Coming out of your ass!

    They fire 25 of their toy rockets? Then two squadrons of Su-35 or Mig-35 or Mig-31BM have to flatten the launchers within 15 minutes. Are you firing? Then we'll kill you!

    Stop this nonsense. Flatten the railways, flatten the border crossings, let NATO finally feel the pain when they do things like that!

    Start conducting airstrikes through proxies when the games want to play. Get Amagedon and set him free.

    first time that Ukraine attacked with more than 100 long range attack drones
    One attack every few weeks and some dudes are getting a hard d...
    In the meantime Russia is using the same ammount or more drones daily.
    Without the whole of NATO helping/paying.

    I am hoping they will be able to increase that number steadily next few months, why not to be able to send 200-300 or later even 500-1000, what would air defence do then he he he.

    PS. Their long range attack drones are getting heavier (payload of 75 kg), with longer range and are getting hardened against jamming... so they are doing decent job in my eyes.
    A microcosm of the war: Ukraine's ultimate can bring into air a measly 7,500kg with 100 drones. Russia's basic attack pumps at least 100 500/1500 and soon 3000kg bombs per day - and every couple of days they cycle QWE with multiple dozens of drones, cruise missiles, and
    ballistic missile strikes targeting major strategic targets with deadly precision.

    No wonder this shitshow is steadily approaching Zulu war levels of overkill...

    It's a silly useless dumb loss, but in the grand scheme of things, it is still much less than Bodenplatte 1945. Ukronazi mofos and their backing ghouls will still find ways to destroy the aircraft parked WAY too close to the front within shelters or not. Still the Russian MOD can built 25 more aircraft for every five lost so there's that.

    The main worry right now is the FPV menace which truly cripples any attempt at big arrow movement. Bar the inevitable upcoming financial crash in the West which would leave the Banderist experiment completely disheveled, I don't see otherwise how the Russian forces can push decisively to anywhere in any area of the front.

    Hopefully China gets serious in ending this conflict and opts for restrictions to delivieres of critical drone components worldwide (bar Kirghizstan  Russian special military operation in Ukraine #56 - Page 37 1f47f) .

    I know right? FFS these fools need to just STFU and put their big girl pants on.  This is WAR and losses are inevitable.  The Ukrops might be pathologically unevolved tree apes but they are not all stupid, they have legitimately destructive weaponry being made available to them, and the NATO caballists who are actually organising and running these missile strikes have no shortage of money and have at their disposal an unmatched aviation & space-based ISR that is a very dangerous asset if used compentently.  

    So a few ATACMS got through and a few planes were lost?  Who gives a flying fck? Is that going to turnaround Ukropistans collapsing economy or stifle growing social unrest?  Is it going to roll Russian troops back past Avdeevka or Artyomovsk?  Is it going to help the enemy recruit a replacement 600k troops to replace their KIAs? Is it going to sever the land bridge?  Razz

    Russia has a very professional cadre of military-technocrats who are finally getting an opportunity to put their skills to the test and do what NO-ONE has done since (arguably) WWII/GPW and in a combat environment that is orders of magnitude more complex.  They are facing down (and BEATING) a fanatical block of globalist neoliberal capitalists who are utterly intent on doing to Russia what they did to Yugoslavia in the 90s, yet Russia is prevailing on the battlefield, in the marketplace, and in the global town square.

    Compared to this, a small tactical defeat and the loss of a handful of aircraft/SAM hardware is no great issue.  

    Document the attack by all means.  Show pictures if you must, but please, DO NOT REPEAT ENEMY PROPAGANDA OR RESORT OT DEFEATIST DOOMERISM.  If you can't maintain some simple discipline in these difficult times then please JUST FCK OFF AND DON'T COME BACK.  This is not a game, and those of us who recognise that this is at its heart a battle of good vs evil don't appreciate the weak-minded when they loose emotional control and start to empty their bladders in the forum.

    Yep of course. Just goes to show that NATO can target them too and we will read the same whining.

    Although don't get me wrong, placing MiG-31Ks in Belbek, an A-50 unguarded in Belarus or the Moskva going around near Odessa coasts are bonehead moves wherever you look at it.

    Their destruction still hurts the VKS at large despite positive production numbers and gives points to NATO's aim at weakening the Russian Federation. Even though the latter is doing a much better job at weakening NATO itself and eventually avoiding the larger conflict in SE Asia in the long run. All this should be done with the most minimal losses possible. Thankfully the MiG-31 pilots are safe therefore so far so good.

    The last item is the interesting news

    Important news for Saturday morning, May 18:

    🔷 A missile danger has been declared in Belgorod and the Belgorod region, local authorities said.

    🔷 The Russian Armed Forces continue to strike enemy targets. At night, explosions occurred in the Vinnitsa, Dnepropetrovsk and Poltava regions.

    🔷 Air defense systems destroyed a Ukrainian UAV over the territory of the Republic of Crimea - Russian Ministry of Defense.

    🔷 On Saturday night, attacks were carried out on a military airfield and industrial zone in the city of Mirgorod, Poltava region, and on warehouses with explosives at the Pavlograd chemical plant in the Dnepropetrovsk region of Ukraine, the underground movement reported.

    🔷 The White House told RIA Novosti that the United States does not facilitate Ukrainian military strikes on Russian territory.

    🔷 Maria Zakharova called the closure of the case about the leak of a conversation between the German military another manifestation of the hypocrisy of the West. According to the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, everything points to Berlin’s desire to quickly “hush up” the inconvenient topic.

    Wow it must have been a miracle Laughing Laughing

    On the day the Russian offensive on the Kharkov region began, Starlink devices stopped working.

    AFU soldiers told The Washington Post about this. A commander of the Ukrainian UAV unit admitted that the Ukrainian Armed Forces simply did not see how the Russian units were moving.

    “At one point we were left completely blind,” he said.

    It is noted that this happened for the first time in two years.

    The morale and psychological state of the militants of the 110th brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is apparently very bad. After the first drop of leaflets by the Atlant battalion fighters calling for them to lay down their arms, the enemy began to surrender in whole groups. Here is another batch of members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who made the right choice. Now they will live.

    They got rid of most equipment reserves, thinking it would be good for the speculators and for the people who could get some cuts from the contracts for the new equipment.

    If there was a corruption inside russian MOD, for west MOD you have to at least double it, if not multiply it by 5.
    With the difference that Russia got the opportunity to clean house and improve the situation.

    Furthermore they do not care how much impact all of this will have on the normal people in their countries.

    Finally the new equipment will take a lot of time to be produced, and in the meanwhile their army will be able to wage war for about two weeks before having to give up.

    Last important point, Russia is working much more in dual use, so a lot of the expenses now for the defense industry will be able to allow civilian production when the war will be finished.

    And finally russian GDP mainly reflects real production, while a large part of western GDP is based on financial frauds, artistic bookkeeping or over evaluation of some IT stuff.

    We have major milestone - it is first time that Ukraine attacked with more than 100 long range attack drones at once.

    Yeah, and at 200K per drone that probably cost them 20 million US dollars... that is really money very well spent isn't it?

    You are clearly not a US taxpayer, but these are EU dollars too...

    I am hoping they will be able to increase that number steadily next few months, why not to be able to send 200-300 or later even 500-1000, what would air defence do then he he he.

    Even if they could expand their launches like that, the launch positions and production sites would be located and destroyed and then the power and transport infrastructure will be damaged... but of course your drone makers will have to be women because all the men will be going to the front to get killed by Russian artillery.

    PS. Their long range attack drones are getting heavier (payload of 75 kg), with longer range and are getting hardened against jamming... so they are doing decent job in my eyes.

    Except the targets they are hitting are not significant to the military situation you find yourself in...

    Your best result was to surrender three years ago, but keep fighting... it will only get worse.

    Shelters are one thing, the exact location of the Mig-31K is another. Why are these two standing exactly where they stood?

    There would be very little reason at all to base operational planes there... are you sure these planes were MiG-31Ks? Were they even operational?

    Their destruction still hurts the VKS at large despite positive production numbers and gives points to NATO's aim at weakening the Russian Federation.

    The key thing is that those points are not transferable... they can't use those points to buy more trained soldiers and more ammo and weapons that actually work well rather than are more of a burden than are actually useful to those few trained troops you do have.

    HATO wants thing it can go to the table with to say we can do this and this to hurt you so we want this and this... but all they have is that this and this did damage when we first used it but then you started shooting them down and all we could do with them was hit unprotected civilian targets with it instead.

    The people on the ground getting their draft papers and orders to go to the front don't give a shit how many civilians or fuel refineries have been hit...

    Even though the latter is doing a much better job at weakening NATO itself and eventually avoiding the larger conflict in SE Asia in the long run.

    Not sure that is true... one could say Putin was given no choice in Europe... if Putin did not attack at the end of February then Zelensky would have attacked mid March.. either way there was going to be war... I rather suspect in Asia it will either be India vs China if they can manage it or China vs Taiwan... they wont be upset which works out but I suspect they will think India will do more damage to China than Taiwan could possibly too so I suspect that is the outcome they prefer...

    Here is another batch of members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who made the right choice. Now they will live.

    As long as their own side doesn't find out where they will be held and bomb it...

    With the difference that Russia got the opportunity to clean house and improve the situation.

    The difference is that Russia sees corruption as a crime, while in the west it is a retirement plan...

    Indeed. The obsession with using territorial gains as a metric is pathological. It is clear that Russia is following a flies to shit strategy that has
    effectively obliterated Kiev regime forces on an essentially static front. This "static" front is the objective and not control over land tracts with
    guerrilla action in the rear. But the NATzO head cases think the lack of mobility of the front is a direct measure of Russian failure. These losers
    are deciding how Russia should be fighting the war and not Russian generals and leadership. Such retardation is not surprising from clowns like
    Borrell and his pearls of wisdom on gardens and jungles. But it is still something to behold.

    "Static" front means less collateral damage inflicted to the infrastructure.
    As long as conflict is being carried at +/- 100 km wide belt - it is a part that will need rebuilding.
    If you can destroy an opponent's army in a limited area, later gains will be less costly to refurbish. As easy as that.

    By the way, I have just started a new construction project and hired my proven Ukrainian team.
    This time, they have arrived not in a strength of two, but ... five.
    All in a clear mobilization age.
    Three new ones escaped lately from conscription.
    The old team does not even care about what is going on in Ukraine, they have fully resettled here.
    One is already in relation with a local girl, the other is here with his wife and two kids.
    They have even stopped to watch the news, they don't care.
    Ukraine is no more - this is what they are saying.
    The sole concern they have is if they are to be deported.
    If so, they will run away, and the direction is either Belarus or Russia.
    As the guys are decent men, skilled and hard working builders, they can settle comfortably in Russia at any single moment.
    Quite an interesting development, if you are asking me.
