News Thump: Vostok-2018 - the “secret congress of fetishists”

58
English humor is very peculiar, no wonder he stands out in a separate category. British satirists from News Thump decided to make fun of the large-scale Russian exercises Vostok-2018, as well as Western experts, who with open mouth watched the military maneuvers, calling them "Kremlinologians." The authors of the article themselves also decided to play around with experts in Moscow and share their own impressions of what they saw.




One of the "journalists" wrote that many who followed the exercises "Vostok-2018", "went to the roof," the rest got off "easily" - they are simply injured. The author of the article focused his attention on the fact that the official version of Russia sounded like “large-scale saber-training exercises weapons with the participation of technology and a huge number of people running in a circle in the forest ", but no one warned them that the military would be wearing" short and tight-fitting shorts. "

News Thump tried to joke about the fact that the exercises were a "congress of fetishists who are passionate about sex-role-playing games in costumes of anthropomorphic animals." Journalists even allegedly attached to the article allegedly satellite photos, which "refused to comment on the Kremlin." At the end of the article, the authors allowed to sum up the lingering unsuccessful joke with a paragraph about the fact that "Vostok-2018 is still a real" healthy, masculine activity.

Obviously, English humor is going through hard times. Despite this, the fact that Russian exercises are monitored not only by Western specialized publications, but also by satirical entertainment portals, suggests that Vostok-2018 was able to attract the attention of even those who are far from military subjects. Manners themselves conducted in the Far East and Siberia, have become the most ambitious since 1981 year.

    In the exercises, the equipment has not changed much since 1981. “West-81” and “Vostok-2018” almost 40 years have passed and the equipment is the same.

    T-72AB

      As I understand it, this is partly a technique that was removed from storage. If so, then in my opinion the opposite is good. That is, the opportunity is not only available, but it was used in real conditions and conducted exercises on this part as well.

          Firstly, since you touched armored vehicles, you should know that it is very conservative, followed by artillery, because WWII trunks are still relevant, and not only here. And put thermal imaging sights, modern ammunition and communication systems on the Panther and it will be a very decent and modern machine. The same AK will soon celebrate 70 years, but nothing better has been invented. But satellites now work on artillery and armored vehicles, so beware laughing

        This time, as in 1981, the T-62 was used as targets.
        Real tanks were destroyed during training combat operations during the Vostok-2018 maneuvers. We are talking about the T-62. Burning cars were shown in reports from the "battle" fields.
        Of course, we are talking about target tanks. By the way, according to some experts, the burned-out "sixty-second" is exactly the technique that was recently seen on the railway and so excited foreign bloggers.
        Vostok-2018 has been compared to the Soviet exercises Zapad-81. They also used T-62s as targets, which depicted NATO armored vehicles. Participants said that there were radio-controlled versions of medium tanks. So far, information confirming this has not been made public. They wrote only about the SU-100, which became "unmanned" self-propelled guns during the Second World War, which were destroyed by 125-mm T-72 guns and ATGMs.

          Until about the end of the 80s, the T-62s were the main tanks in the ZabBVO, and in Afghanistan and in the second company in Chechnya they were widely used. It is not always advantageous to use more expensive equipment.

          These teachings, of course, signal the Chinese, although they were allowed to join the ranks, but they also received the main greetings. There is no one else at that theater, okay there is Japan, but apart from a decent fleet they have nothing to oppose, well, they can carry out landing operations and no more, there is no Kwantung army, they destroyed it. There is Eun, but he has enough problems with the South and the USA. Closer to the point, here the Communists should be presented with what was presented to the Chinese by Manchuria and Uyghur, there could be a buffer from socialist countries like Mongolia, the absence of a common border and no border graters. The Communists need to say thank you for giving the Chinese the vigorous bonbu, the Communists need to say thank you for creating the Chinese industry, and they sold themselves to the West. The Communists should be thanked in general for the Chinese threat, the Communists should be thanked for having to stop this threat with an effort of forces and means, to keep the group there, to engage the Strategic Missile Forces in the Chinese direction and even had to fight them.

            If it were not for the "gift" of the PRC to Manchuria and Xinjiang, then perhaps they would now have on their territory the pro-American-extremist East Turkestan with NATO bases ... Although the Chinese believe that the USSR simply pulled out the formations of the NKVD and the army, which were present there without any diplomatic consent. Few people know that after 1950 Manchuria became a Muslim territory. In addition, the former sympathies of the Manchus and Russians have practically disappeared over the years of isolation of our cultures, although apparently the Manchus have preserved this more.

            Moscow was surrendered in 1812 to Napoleon for several months. As a result, France suffered a complete defeat. According to the results of the Crimean War, Sevastopol remained part of Russia, although Britain dreamed of chopping off all of Crimea, part of the Caucasus, to establish itself in the Far East. But France’s losses in Crimea sharply reduced the demands of the Allies. Interestingly, Turkey also suffered heavy territorial and financial losses as a result of this war. Immediately she ceded Britain to Cyprus, and a little later Egypt. Turkey had to pay for loans for this war before the outbreak of World War I.

      Russian experts demonstrate the ZSU-23-4M4 installation, which during the modernization received new equipment, but at the same time retained the proven and reliable artillery weapons in the form of a 2A7M quad-machine gun of 23 mm caliber, which is guided in any direction in azimuth with an elevation angle of -4 to +85 degrees. Effective shooting is possible at distances up to 2–2,5 km with an initial projectile speed of 950–970 m / s. Reach in height - 1,5 km. When using the Sagittarius anti-aircraft guided missiles, which can now be placed on the Shilka, making it actually a real rocket-cannon launcher, the maximum range of targets is increased to 5–5,2 km, height - to 3–3,5 2000 km. Ammunition - 3000-500 shells. With the available characteristics, machines can be used to attack air targets moving at speeds up to XNUMX m / s.

      Unlike its predecessors, Shilka-M4 can operate in a complex jamming environment, as well as efficiently detect targets reaching low altitudes. The complex’s automation independently takes into account weather conditions, gun barrel wear and other factors affecting the flight path of shells.

      Simultaneously with the Shilka-M4 project, there is a modernization option under the designation ZSU-23-4M5, which provides for the creation of an optical-location channel as part of a fire control system that can provide combat work in conditions of strong interference that interfere with the radar. The project “Shilka-M5” proposes to equip the self-propelled gun with an additional television sight and a laser rangefinder.
      So it's too early to bury the shilka.

        That's right, tanks are needed today. But today - a tank machine of the clear sky, that is, it can work only after gaining air supremacy. The simultaneous destruction of enemy air defenses, the destruction of aircraft at airfields, the destruction of those few interceptors that took to the skies. If this had been demonstrated in these exercises, then it would not have strained the West. And just pushing a sea of ​​tanks, creating a "flurry of fire" with artillery in the spirit of the 40s and a parade of intimidation, all this is nothing more than PR.

          The operators of air defense batteries are, by and large, suicide bombers - they will not be in the first minutes of the war.

          You live the concepts of the 20th century, and in the courtyard of the 21st ...

          you know the usual air defense of the name yourself, what do you think flies — it doesn’t go off from air defense — such people are waiting for Poshniki until the rocket arrives in them, they already make EM guns to shoot down UAVs.

    What kind of air defense? He will not be in the first place. It is for the sake of opening an air defense that inconspicuous aircraft and cruise missiles are created.

    Who will this not be in the first place? And what can you say about the modern military conflict of 2018, which is completely fresh ... in which on one side there is overwhelming air superiority, the overwhelming number of cruise missiles with a maximum range, overwhelming satellite and radio reconnaissance, and indeed everything is overwhelming ... in words! And on the other hand, it’s the old Soviet technology, not only 40, but also 60 years ago! I mean two waves of missile attack by the United States and Co. in Syria! Something was not struck by the super-duper modern means of defeating a powerful tan in the first wave of all the AAA defense calculations !? And in the second too! ?? Yes, and modern Israeli aviation is already not so effectively flies! ?? Or is this an exception again and can’t be compared? .. not by the standards of England? ))) Well, of course, I forgot to remember about our Shell and flying UAVs, blah blah blah in Hmeimim ...

    Yes, it’s not a matter of humor but the fact that they were embraced by fear of what they saw and instead of describing the true scale and quality + a lot of other things, as psychology suggests, they began to carry nonsense in the form of humor in fear, and since this is not humor, it’s just absurdity from fear, such articles have come out!

    After the "poisoning" of the Skripals and the London adventures of Petrov and Vasechkin - the terrible liquidator agents of the GRU who posed in front of every camera ... what kind of English humor can you even talk about ???? it is a deshovy circus with a big top with Dylda and Red, who apparently gained experience in the Kiev branch of the madhouse.
