"For the capture of the Baltic States, 60 hours will not be enough for Russian troops now": American observer on the emergence of opposition in the region

105

Western experts consider a major war between NATO and Russia unlikely, but consider a limited conflict possible. At the same time, in almost any scenario, it is allegedly deployed in the Baltic States.


Strengthening Europe with rocket launchers


In 2016, analysts from the RAND organization concluded that this region would only be able to hold out for 60 hours in the event of an invasion by the RF Armed Forces, but “this time will not be enough for the RF troops today to capture the region”:

This conclusion is no longer valid, and rocket artillery is the reason for this [...] It can close Russia's access to the Baltics

- says Major of the US Army Brennan Devereaux, who served in the branch indicated by him. He voiced his opinion on the pages of War On the Rocks.

As the military man explains, NATO air superiority is not a guaranteed scenario, since the enemy has a developed air defense system. In these conditions, long-range artillery becomes important.

In recent years, a significant increase in the forces of rocket artillery has been outlined in Europe: the potential of the US artillery brigade in Germany has been increased (a total of 32 launchers of NATO forces are located here), the corresponding systems of American origin have been acquired by Poland (20 launchers) and Romania (54 launchers). Thus, the number of launchers will exceed one hundred (of which 16 are light and airmobile), which is comparable to three artillery brigades.



At the forefront of the battle


Missile and artillery systems are vital to the Baltic defense plan, as their mobility allows the alliance to deploy high-precision long-range weapons throughout the theater and pursue vital targets.

- the American observer believes, considering the region has the means of countering the Russian invasion.

In his words, it is necessary to ensure the maximum possible mobility of rocket artillery. For example, to deliver them to the theater of operations on C-130 aircraft, shoot and redeploy by air.

This unique raid provides the alliance with a mobile asset capable of neutralizing Russian air defenses and facilitating NATO's freedom of movement.

- considers Devereaux.

As he points out, the Alliance demonstrated the "raid" tactics in a November 2020 exercise, airlifting two launchers from Germany to Romania to ensure accurate fire near the Black Sea.

The rapid advance of the missile system to the front line gives an unpredictable [for the enemy] advantage

- noted then in NATO.

During the May 2021 Defender Europe exercise, the 41st field artillery brigade, whose forces were stationed in Estonia, fired 24 missiles, “destroying” enemy air defense systems in the region. This allowed a brigade from the 82nd US Airborne Division to quickly reinforce Estonia.

While the value of large mechanized forces is not being questioned, it is time to recognize that rocket (rocket) artillery should be at the forefront of NATO's military strategy.

- concludes the American military.

    All Tribaltika did not resist on our foreheads. And the one that is needed (Lithuania) will seize itself from within, when we really need it. And no tank armada is needed there. It will be enough to secretly transfer a limited contingent of drg from the group, etc. structures to capture key points.

      Bullshit. Something in the Donbass MLRS could not defeat the militia, but suffered losses from counter-battery fire. The regular army of the Russian Federation will multiply the rocket launchers of the Tribaltika by zero in a day or two.

        No doubt about it. Moreover, even before the NATO MLRS begin to deploy. Moreover, I believe that it will not even come to this. When NATO members learn that we are looking towards Lithuania, the territory will already be seized. Several DRGs, with a total strength of two or three battalions, with the subsequent introduction of a certain citinget, providing police functions, is more than enough to lift the "blockade" of Kaliningrad. And we don't need Estonians and Latvians even for free. And even if they offer to pay in addition, if only they took it away. Let the gay union feed them further.
        In general .. I see the operation a little more complicated than the Crimean.

            We do not need to capture the Baltics. When Britain sank to the bottom of the sea, and instead of the United States there will be a strait, then the whole of Geyropa will again adhere to Christian principles and the Balts will bow the knee to the warrior liberator! Without firing a shot!

              The American is too optimistic and engages in complacency: 60 hours is enough to take the Baltic states (if necessary), and "a limited conflict in the Baltic states" - in the event of an attack / provocation by NATO - the matter will probably not end! smile

            Is it Pasha "Mercedes" Grachev's name?
            It's a crappy joke, and the joker of you is not very putting it mildly.
            Firstly, I explain for the especially "gifted", the Caucasus in general and Chechnya in particular, this is not a tribalism for you. Remind me about the Caucasian wars that the Republic of Ingushetia was still waging? Remind me of a similar situation with the Tribaltik, maybe the local Shamil was there? The forest brothers do not count, this is a slightly different song, and there will be no forest brothers in the modern Tribaltia, the guts are thin.
            Secondly, the army of the Russian Federation of the times of Pasha-Mercedes and the army of the times of Shoigu are somewhat different things, and the difference is striking. I'm not saying that there are no problems in our army, but I personally have no doubts that it will break the entire Tribaltika in a week. And then, a week, I took it with a well oooooo big supply. Something like - is it a talleko to Tallinn ... now a talleko ...
            Do not tell my horseshoes, NATO will not interfere in a serious batch neither because of the Ruins, nor even more so because of the Tribalties. They need it only for bases, but it can undermine and drain, no one will seriously fit into NATO, the five-day war perfectly demonstrated this. What, someone fit in for the Georgians? And the Georgian army at that time was much cooler than the entire Tribal.

            So there is no need to inflate a blizzard about Pasha-Mercedes here, you are our unfinished salesman.

              Everything was correctly stated.
              Only one question remained, who prepared a springboard for Shoigu for the development of the army?
              And then the hated surname Serdyukov pops up!
              It was he who cleared the Augean stables of the USSR Armed Forces!
              His "female battalion", so for teasing people .. One might say a prize for a job well done.
              I would not want the residents to have their own "Serdyukov" - a protege of the president ...

                That's right, I don’t argue how not to relate to Serdyukov, but the army reforms began with him, Shoigu came to almost ready. The same can be said about Kiriyenko, they framed the boy for the distribution, but here, as they say, big politics. The main thing is the result, and it is, whatever one may say.

            What are you interested in for?
            But yes, I did. So what? And with what fright did you decide that I consider the Crimean operation to be a Sunday promenade along the Arbat? I just meant that it went through with vanishingly small losses, which led our sworn "partners" into complete bewilderment.
            It is quite possible that in the operation that we are now discussing here, the losses will be somewhat greater (but not fatal). And for sure, it hardly makes sense to talk about a full-scale army, since this (in my opinion) will be a strategic mistake and not at all in the spirit of the already established military strategy of our leadership, which is being polished more and more every year and acquires quite understandable outlines. Is that eyebrows "sternly frown" along the border ...

      For 300 years our ancestors periodically fought for the Baltic states, laid hundreds of thousands of lives, then invested billions in it, and now the expert Alexey declares that we do not need the Baltic states, that is, according to you, our ancestors were idiots once they went to die for the Baltic states, and our fathers cretins who built cities and ports there, so what do you think?

        Expert Andrey, would you deign to clarify which particular Baltic states and which ones of your ancestors fought?
        Mine (Tver) for Lithuania, which was once the original Russian principality.
        With regards to the Baltic "showcase of socialism", which was created under Leonid Brezhnev and towards which you are blowing bubbles, it was one of the greatest follies, and precisely at the expense of the Russian people. However, like some of the Caucasian republics, where they generally lived on loans at the expense of the RSFSR (and even now ..). Under the USSR, many of the ungrateful pigs were handed out kolobashki. As history has shown, this practice was purely vicious and for that money a lot of things could have been built at least in the same Far East.
        So, Andryusha, there is no need to rattle about who and who fought there! ;)

        If on business, then Lithuania is the only Baltic republic where at the level of mentality we will meet the least resistance (I have traveled to tribals more than once and communicated with the population, Latvians hate us, I generally keep quiet about Estonians), plus the normal land route to Kaliningrad, which has they will be the first to try to squeeze us out, should something happen. In Estonia and Latvia, we have no strategic interests, except for the ports, which we have already built our own over the past ten years. Well .. except that Narva has a bit to move the border. :) But that's all. Latvians and Estonians are a concrete suitcase without a handle, just look at their road network.

          Eksperd Alyosha, who 50 years ago from a train window passing through Lithuania conducted sociological research and now builds strategies on its basis.
          Quite the opposite, unlike Lithuania, Riga and Revel, thanks to Peter I, have been Russian cities for 300 years. In latfia and estochia, almost half of the population is RUSSIAN, and their modern territory consists of half of the primordially RUSSIAN lands, Dvinsk, Rezhetsa, Yuriev. In Lithuania, there are only about 15% of Russians, and the Lithuanians are the largest and most united nation among the Balts, about 2 million, and the Latvians, who are not homogeneous and are divided into Latgalians, Curonians and Semigallians, are less than 1 million, and there are even fewer. If we take into account that a third of Latvians have one Russian parent, that is, half-breeds, then in general, what kind of cohesion to speak of, this is an artificially assembled nation from several tribes. For this, nationalist propaganda is being wound up in latfia and estokhia, so that even half-breeds are embarrassed to remember who they are, their Russian parents and try to change Russian surnames to nationally correct ones. Riga in the Russian Empire was the 3rd most important city, ahead of Kiev, the first railway and a car with an internal combustion engine were built in Riga.
          And stop repeating the propaganda patterns "we fed the Baltic states" and they are not grateful, so we are offended and we do not need the Baltic states. This is the behavior of a schoolgirl in PMS days. You were offended and gave your land to the enemy, with your people.
          Why then fight with you for territories at all, you just need to come up with something offensive for you and you yourself will give up this territory. Tomorrow the Chukchi will declare that the Russians are bad, you will be offended, say we fed them, taught them, civilization, writing, but they are not grateful. Let the Chukchi now live without us as they want, we will leave Chukotka. We will leave and in a year there will be a Natava base there. Do you think this is reasonable behavior?
          So it turned out with the Baltic states and the outskirts, they took offense and gave it up. It is not necessary to be offended, but to think with your head, not to forget your history and your Russian people, who are half of the population there, to support.

      Anatoly, you do not understand. C-130 lands on the ground near the front line. The MLRS drives out quickly, while the C-130 does not turn off the engines. The MLRS quickly aims at the target, shoots, loads quickly, the C-130 takes off. EVERYTHING! In flight, the MLRS reboots and is ready for battle. Or don't you believe the Pentagon's main military computer? wink

    Western experts consider a major war between NATO and Russia unlikely, but consider a limited conflict possible. At the same time, in almost any scenario, it is allegedly deployed in the Baltic States.

    Only "debyly" and people with low intelligence can think so.
    Well, who needs the Baltics in our time? There are no natural resources, only swamps. And without war the people scatter.

          Poland ... It's a little more complicated here. In relation to Russia, Poland is like the same Latvia and Estonia. Only the Pshek have much more ambition, plus their age-old dreams of the "Great Rzeczpospolita", which runs counter to our plans. Warsaw will never be completely loyal to Moscow. Another thing is that over time it is quite capable of making it so that it would be less loyal to the Western gamerope, performing the functions of a buffer, albeit not strong, but still, as planned, and did in due time an IVS (radically, although and not very elegant). I believe that here it is more likely to work with gas and oil nishtyaks, but this is possible only if and if the psheks get their pipe from Siberia from us. Difficult, not fast, but possible.
          Iatakudmayu ..

          ..
          By the way, the Lithuanians will also like hypothetical gas (and not only) nishtyaks. For many years they have been feeding on the Klaipeda port, which is now out of work. And unlike Geyropa, we have a sales market for their products. For example, I will not give up Lithuanian beer or milk.)) Again, what kind of industry can be raised. Shipbuilding, fish, etc.

    Russia needs to completely abandon regiments in motorized rifle subunits, moving to brigades (to replenish existing regiments to the level of a brigade). It is just possible to strengthen the air defense in the regiments by completing them to the brigade. Defend with divisions, and use brigades in assault operations as more mobile.

    This conclusion is no longer valid, and rocket artillery is the reason for this [...] It can close Russia's access to the Baltics


    In recent years, a significant increase in the forces of rocket artillery has been outlined in Europe: the potential of the US artillery brigade in Germany has been increased (a total of 32 launchers of NATO forces are located here), the corresponding systems of American origin have been acquired by Poland (20 launchers) and Romania (54 launchers). Thus, the number of launchers will exceed one hundred (of which 16 are light and airmobile), which is comparable to three artillery brigades.


    Googled. There are 175 MLRS in Cuba. Poor America.

    Valuable conclusion about the benefits of MLRS. Russia came to this back in the Second World War, and since then it has been developing throughout the MLRS and gaining experience in application. Well, the number of installations we have is not even comparable to the whole gamerope. In general, the concept is funny, straight in the style of NATO cartoons (modeling) ... NATO cannot implement military superiority in the air, since the entire tribaltic is covered by our air defense ... But on the C130, for some reason, they can redeploy installations, and for some reason we will not shoot them down at the same time ...
