"The first line to the Eastern Wall": in Lithuania, Abrams tanks delivered on a new track to the border of Belarus

51

Gradually, the infrastructure of the countries located in the post-Soviet space is adapting to NATO's logistics chains, allowing the alliance's military equipment to be transferred to the borders of the so-called "Eastern Wall" - a security cordon that protects Russia on its western borders.


On September 4, an exercise started in Lithuania, in which American units were involved. The maneuvers involve the transfer of military equipment to the training ground located in Pabrade. This settlement is located at the very border of Belarus, which is considered by NATO as an ally of Russia (which, in fact, is the case, since Belarus and Russia are not only in the CSTO, but also in the Union State).

For the first time, heavy military equipment arrived here not by highway, but by rail. This became possible thanks to the completion of the construction of the new Pabrade - Paberže track in the spring of this year. This branch is used only for transporting troops. The other day, it was on it that American Tanks "Abrams" to the borders of the "Eastern Wall", which hastened to report the Ministry of Defense of Lithuania:

We greet our American brothers on Lithuanian soil! Troops from the 2nd Battalion, 69th Regiment, 2nd Brigade, US Army, arrived for a pre-planned exercise. Together we are strong.

The tanks descended from the railway platforms directly onto the ground.

In this regard, Alyaksandr Lukashenka’s statements that the clanking of the tracks of NATO tanks can be heard in Belarus is not without meaning. American "Abrams" were transferred to the Belarusian border - the western border of the Union State of the Republic of Belarus and the Russian Federation.

            Let's omit the analysis of the quality of roads, and remember that the RF also recently launched a bypass railway infrastructure around Okraina, which not only removed the issue of crossing its territory, but also ensured the maneuver of troops associated with their transfer to the required place in case of such a need. ..

          The ballast prism looks weak in the photo, it was rather bungled for exercises, nothing more. It looks like a dead end for unloading, we have gangways to the station anywhere (at all stations or not, I don't know) Money was thumped, a picture was made, the meaning is still our bridges on the roads.

                Germany during the war somehow solved this issue. I do not think that today, in the age of one hundred percent motorization, the issue of supply by rail will be acute.

                  Now, in the age of motorization, everything becomes more complicated, and the weight of amers' equipment is large, more weight eats more fuel and rushed in a circle.
                  And the Germans have already made transport caterpillars on the Tiger, a piece of iron it is all in mm all sizes and also the animal is called - the size of the approach of buildings. Well, the Germans had to alter the track.

                    I do not know how exactly Germany solved the problem of supply by rail, but it was established quickly enough. For example, Manstein writes that in December 1941, due to the failure of a part of the steam locomotives supplying his army, the offensive on Sevastopol had to be postponed for two weeks, and during these two weeks an unexpected happened in the form of a Soviet landing in the Kerch Peninsula. Vryatli Germans changed the track, apparently the wheelbase of trains and wagons changed.

                      On the contrary. Moving one rail a few centimeters is easier and cheaper than holding a double park of carts, and before that, grab or release them in the required quantity.

                        Of course, it is easier to move one rail, but to remake thousands of kilometers of roads and in a short time is a big problem. Road transport started quickly enough.

                        Do not count the Hans as fools who do not know about our track. Of course we did. Besides, where do "thousands of kilometers" come from? At the peak of the blitzkrieg's success, in some places (not everywhere), the Wehrmacht covered 50-60 km / day. Usually less. The railway does not have to pull straight to the front line and wherever they were laid, right? With an increase in the branching of the network, you can wait. Will the engineering battalion cope with the transfer of 10-20 km of rails per day? These are 800-1500 rails. And by December-41, the front had completely stopped. There was time to change it - at least shove it into the chests.
                        And yet - where did the Hans get so many of our carts? It's as easy as shelling pears to drag them away with you when retreating. In addition, some of them were on our own cars. And how many pieces of carts did we need in peacetime and how many did the Germans need in wartime?
                        Well, I do not like the transfer of the rail - you can lay your third one in parallel. This, I think, is even faster.

                        I wrote above that I do not know exactly about this issue. I read a little on this topic now, at the beginning the Germans used a trophy railway train, and slowly transferred the track to the standard in Europe. The third rail was not laid down anywhere, Germany had a stress with metals, and this is an overrun.

      From the town of Pabrade to the border with Belarus in a straight line 7 km, from the training ground 10 km, tank shots will be heard.

        And this is also their gain. What our military forces will do with the buffer territories, the Big White Man does not care. They will save their objects - our resources are not limitless, to put it mildly, and they will not be enough for all potential goals.

      The Americans quietly intimidated the countries of Eastern Europe that Russia is asleep and sees how to occupy them. They burst into tears, "we are afraid, the Russians will beat us and offend us, protect us!" And now NATO is moving to the East under the pretext of protecting the "offended and oppressed" ....
      But all the Soviet period they were rebuilt and supplied at a loss to themselves ...

So that pro-American jackals, sycophants and boot kissers understand that those who call for tanks and soldiers of another state, which is enemy for us, automatically become targets. So that every Pole and Balts know that they can now burn out in a nuclear fire at any moment or die painfully from radiation for their desire to lick American asses and avidly kiss the stars-striped flag. And they brought this problem to themselves.

    After 1945, Americans have never thought that if they commit military aggression against any country, that country cannot answer them by transferring the war to the territory of the United States. This impunity made the Americans complete impudent people (a sort of tram boorish) who believed in their "exclusivity." Americans should be aware that in the event of an attack on Russia, the organization of the bombing of Moscow, for example, the answer will be given in Washington and other US cities. This knowledge, of course, will not stop the Washington elders, but it may sober up the presumptuous American "youth" who make strategic decisions.
    And, of course, it is necessary to restrict the movement of US citizens in Russia.
