Ukrainian command: Operation of the bridge in Zatoka is currently not possible

32

The Ukrainian Operational Command "South" publishes a message stating the termination of the railway communication over the bridge across the Dniester estuary. We are talking about a road-railway bridge in the village of Zatoka.


This bridge is located in the Odessa region, and oil products were actively supplied through it during March-April, weapons and ammunition for the needs of the Ukrainian armed forces from abroad. In particular, trains carrying fuel and lubricants from Moldova, where oil products were supplied, for example, from Romania, were crossing the bridge across the Dniester estuary.

The operational command "South" of the Ukrainian armed forces stated that "the operation of the bridge in Zatoka is not possible at the moment." This message came from the Odessa region after another missile attack was allegedly carried out on the object. According to the Ukrainian side, the bridge was hit by two missiles.

Official representative of the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine:

The bridge across the Dniester Estuary is so damaged that it will require lengthy repairs. But now they are impossible.

At the moment, the Russian Ministry of Defense does not comment on the statements of the Ukrainian command. Earlier reports reported strikes against targets in the Odessa region, including a center for combat coordination and training of reservists and foreign mercenaries.

      Yes, how much was possible already? I’m wearing a jacket, because I thought that 1 rocket-1 bridge, this one seems to have already been stuffed into 6. Perhaps there are objective reasons why they didn’t immediately crash it, but tortured the non-brothers with attempts to fix it. Here my Wishlist is similar to those who demanded Azovstal
      bomb at once.

        The United States in Vietnam used the UAB to destroy the bridge, the accuracy is high, and the charge is larger. True, air defense must first be crushed.

          Moreover, even the 2000-pound (907 kg) UAB "Wallay II" and "Peivway" managed to completely fill up the same road-rail bridge "Dragon's Mouth" only from the third raid.

              You're right. But since we were talking about UAB against bridges, I did not mention the previous sorties with cast iron and "light" SDs.
              By the way, I forgot about the unsuccessful use of the first Wallai models against this bridge - the 1100-lb bombs turned out to be too weak. smile

        They used to hit the fixed part of the bridge.
        Now they most likely thought: "yes, and .... with him" and hammered into the moving part.

          I also thought. Cut off from Romania. Block the communication across the Dniester in the Belgorod-Dnestrovsky region.

      Adding a rocket is difficult. The fastest way is another damage to the upper structures. Only damage to the support will bring the bridge out for a long time.

    Because the bridge is one of the most difficult objects to destroy. Destroying the spans is inefficient, you need to hit the supports. And it's not easy. So six missiles is an excellent result.

      For good, you need to simultaneously destroy diesel locomotives / electric locomotives and their repair base.

    Why chase electric locomotives? They hit traction power substations. Ukraine is not very good with diesel locomotives. Yes, fuel is a problem.

    It would be worth asking from whom it is necessary why in March April this bridge functioned (although this someone is most likely someone's relative or acquaintance and untouchable).

    In front of the bridge, trains with fuel will now be unloaded, an attractive target, however)
    Northern exits from Moldova closed or not? There is one road through Zhmerynka, the other through Sokiryany.

      Last time, the Ukrainians also said that it would take several months to recover. You can't just knock out a railway. It is necessary to constantly and systematically hit the infrastructure (disable interconnected objects) and constantly repeat so that there is not enough resource to restore.

      The stronger will be the desire of the Banderlogs to seize the PMR and with it more supply routes.

        The railway line through Tiraspol is very important and it is likely that the bridge will be quickly damaged or destroyed at the slightest threat.

    Good result. From time to time, throw another rocket at him so that he loses interest in repairing it.

      If you hit the bridge more often, Odessa will surrender itself, without a fight!

    The supports cannot be destroyed by rockets, but if the structural integrity of the span is damaged (if even in several places), repairs can no longer be done. And a new span needs to be made, brought and installed, this cannot be done quickly.
