Русский корабль - иди нахуй

There are also 2-3 outstanding videos but I don't know how to post them without autoplay or embedding them. Brass band in the Kyiv subway is fantastic and they looked to have borrowed from the stylings of an HBCU band.

WWII-era nothing. Those were developed in the 1890s and used widely in WWI.  They were antiquated by WWII.

Damn, that one dude got got. 

That said, did the flick Memphis Belle not make it to Ukraine in the 90s? I remember distinctly goofing off in 5th grade using traffic cones and air bombing targets. These drone grenade drops don’t seem that different. Either way fuck Russia.

All that was left of those who attacked Nizhyn. Excursion to the cemetery of katsap equipment.

The occupiers destroyed the Dergachiv House of Culture with a missile strike. There was a humanitarian headquarters.

 In this regard, there will be no humanitarian aid today.

On the 78th day of the full-scale war, in conditions of complete encirclement, despite the extremely difficult situation, lack of ammunition and a large number of wounded - fighters of the Azov Regiment continue to knock out the enemy from previously captured positions at the Azovstal plant.

Defenders of Mariupol are storming enemy positions, doing the impossible, despite the enemy's constant use of aircraft, naval and artillery, tanks and other weapons. The struggle of our soldiers for Ukraine and for the preservation of the lives of personnel continues in spite of everything.

^Defenders of Mariupol are venturing outside the steel plant.

The only reason for the tank to exist is the main gun.  And it jams.  Bet you a dollar it isn't being properly maintained.

why we don't use autoloaders part 2?

That's apparently a (poorly maintained) BMP instead of a tank.  It was probably also carrying some infantry, although it could have been some weirdo air defense or whatever variant.  Dude has other videos showing it after it was knocked out and before he was captured. 

E:  He's also really calm in the other one I've seen, even with blown up body parts around him, his vehicle still smoking behind him, and Ukranian troops nearby. By "nearby," I mean he's recording them with his phone while they're walking by.  It's in that Reddit thread.

If this was true, I got $48 for "NowThis feels your pain" "FUCK OU", "His name is Daniel Figurelli" and "Your children will be raised by fat middle-aged Americans who are banging your widows in houses with running water and electricity".  I'm still working on that last one.

I guess that I can't understand not making sure that every weapon in reach is in perfect working order and ready for immediate use in a combat zone.  I hope the Rushist bastards keep to that low standard.

Looked like a BMP 3 or 4 from the main armament.

Right?  Granted, shit definitely happens, and this could have been shit happening, but with how much of a clusterfuck this whole thing has been on the Russian side I'm with you in assuming "poorly maintained."

If Russia does invade Poland, I expect that the Polish Army will polish them off pretty quickly. 

I read that they committed approximately 65% of their ground power to the invasion of Ukraine.  That portion has lost between 25% and 30% of those forces, and they can't make progress against Ukraine with what they have left, let alone occupy and defend what they have taken for long.  Add in their depletion of their ballistic and cruise missile stocks, and the fact that they would face extremely effective air attacks, and there's no way they really believe that they can successfully invade Poland.

Dual serious illnesses/coups in parallel in China and Russia would be......not great.  Massive instability in both countries (both large nuclear powers) at once makes for a dangerous situation globally.

 

You go on worrying about instability while I drink in celebration.

Some of them look like 60mm mortar rounds, others look like RPG rounds, and others look like anti personnel grenades.  All of them that I have seen look like they are contact fused.  If they could use VT fuses on mortar rounds from those, life in trenches would really suck.

Can you explain how the contact fuse works? Is there a little cap in there that pops when it gets smooshed?

I’m using Tapatalk and it does weird shit sometimes, especially in this thread, it can’t handle the number of imbedded tweets.

Pretty much.  On the mortar and grenade types, the impact of the nose cap drives a striker into a primer causing a detonation chain similar to that of a bullet, although it usually has an additional explosive element between the primer and the main explosive.  On the RPG rounds, and some others, the impact of the nose of the round triggers a piezoelectric charge that sets off the shaped explosive charge that gives the round its armor penetrating capability.

ISW believes Putin will push to annex the occupied areas of Ukraine and then threaten nuclear attack to protect "Russian territory."

I feel like if they decide to go nuclear, they're not gonna need a "diplomatic" reason. They're either gonna do it as a last ditch fuck it all who gives a fuck because now we're all dead reason,  or they won't do it at all.

There have been direct attacks on legitimate Russian soil and no nukes were launched, and I think he knows, regardless of Russian doctrine, that nukes change everything.   Otherwise he would have already used said nukes earlier in his three-day war, when Russia had a lot more territory under its control.  He would not have retreated from Kyiv and Kharkiv if he was serious about using nukes.

And if he were to launch tactical nukes in Ukraine, I think the sanctions game plan goes from sanctions on Russia to sanctions on countries doing business with Russia.  I also think the Turks close down the straits completely to Russian shipping.  And Moldova may work with Ukraine to get those Russians out, and you might see other CIS members bail.

I still don’t fully agree with Peter Zeihan’s take that this is primarily about Russia securing invasion routes from Western Europe, but it’s interesting how much this parallels Afghanistan.  A lot of that was driven by securing/stabilizing their southern border, especially given their issues with the Chinese, and with the Warsaw Pact having problems in the 1980s.

They needed to have Afghanistan squared away as a buffer with a pro-Russian government, so that they could focus more resources towards China and NATO.  They were nervous about Afghanistan being either a shit show that could generate chaos among the Muslims in the border Soviet states, or just leaving an insecure flank in general.  

Also, if Putin was working on annexing areas, he needs to shift his missiles and bombing missions to 100% supporting the Russian troops in those areas, rather than fucking around like Hitler with England and hitting civilian targets that had no military value and that just pissed the Brits off, bought them time to build up, and depleted German aircraft and experienced pilots.

Another Russian heavy weapon here for interest’s sake. 240mm mortar they are using against Azovstal. supposedly has guided projectiles, which maybe that’s the 3pieces popping off to allow fins to deploy off that big damn shell. Hope the UA finds a way to get the Azov people out or push the Russians out very soon. Feels like Azovstal is their Alamo to some degree. They have held on for an amazingly long time.
