      How can a river boat be used under the dominance of attack drones?
      If a tank can be camouflaged on land, then a boat is just an illuminated target.
      And far from the front, he has no tasks.
      It seems to me that Americans need victims among Ukrainians even more than among Russians

        I'll try to tell you how.
        1. delivery on a trailer under a tarpaulin with the logo of a well-known European company. It's not a problem - just 40 feet! And dry weight is low. Trawl will survive.
        2. In the area of ​​​​the Odessa port, they will unload and re-equip with Swedish light anti-ship missiles of the RBS-17 type, which they seem to have already received. 2 large-caliber machine guns are removed at the stern, instead of them - 2 anti-ship missile launchers RBS-17.
        3. two boats are moored side by side to the side of a dry cargo ship (preferably high-sided) covering from the radar about. Serpentine. Mooring at night, after the cargo ship left Odessa. Further, in tow, they go with a lag to the line-of-sight distance of the Snake.
        4. At the agreed time, an attack on the island from the opposite side by Bayraktars, SVN, and other forces, and from the sea (from the Romanian coast or Odessa) by detached coast guard boats at maximum speed.
        The launch of anti-ship missiles, the illumination of the target after some time, so that they would not have time to put an aerosol curtain on the laser missile control center.
        It is possible to have time with 2 hulls to launch 2x3 anti-ship missiles from each boat.
        Withdrawal with the installation of a smoke screen and the shooting of the LC ...
        This is so, offhand. But it's quite real. Therefore, the US Navy's 40 foot BOs (pictured) are very dangerous. They must be extinguished before the task is completed.
        IMHO.

            To be honest, I don't know. Probably... DROP. am
            A colleague asked for an explanation: how can small speedboats be used (in the US Navy, coastal defense, port security). Well, to the best of my understanding of the question, I answered. By the way. didn’t want to (the water one beguiled!) Because if the site is read by Ukronatsiks, this can vouchsafe them to such a use. But I think. due to the inconsistency in the interaction of the forces allocated for such an operation, they will not succeed.
            And if our materials are filtered by the competent authorities, then there will be a warning. Which is also not bad. yes

          And near the front, but with machine guns ...
          Is it really possible to use it at sea, disguising the waste as a dry cargo ship. But anyway, machine guns will be useless here.

    The Pentagon will supply Ukraine with boats for the new Navy flotilla on the Dnieper

    In the meantime, without waiting for American boats, Ukraine took the initiative.
    According to the Periscope Notepad Telegram channel, the Kashtan boats of the D-055 project, “the Kyiv version of the Moscow, built in 1979–94,” are used as combat units.
    “Is it there, as flagship monitors, pleasure river trams of the Moskva type act, only slightly armored in front and painted in severe military camouflage so that the enemy is immediately afraid?” — writes the channel.

      The transport infrastructure, on the western border of Ukraine, is not being touched. At one time they started hitting traction substations, but then they stopped. They take care of the railway communication, for the transport of goods to the west. Apparently the oligarchs got busy. As in 2014, when they agreed with Akhmetov not to take Mariupol into the DPR.

          Read carefully and do not twist my words. Nobody says chasing trains with equipment going along the railway. These are half-measures. The point is that these trains could not go there at all from the western borders. There are only a few entry points. Enough fingers on one hand. After all, they have already said that the military has everything for this. The power is there, the will is not.

    In connection with the supply of river boats, I have a question. Can they theoretically somehow complicate the logistics of our troops in the Kakhovka area? Or, for example, contribute to the landing of troops in the rear of the Zaporozhye region, for example, in the Energodar region? Will additional forces be required to defend these areas?

    The most interesting thing is how these boats will get to Ukraine, or rather to the Dnieper. The size is not small.

    Here I am reading today's articles on VO ...


    And it feels like something connects them! Especially after reading these lines:As stated, the basis of the first division of the Ukrainian Navy on the Dnieper is converted fishing and pleasure boats and boats, the military is not there.

    What boats? It is dangerous to trust them with a trough.

    This is some kind of dream! We are not so spoiled, we use inflatable watercraft (a circle, a mattress, armlets), and the opa is afraid of a luminous punt at a speed of 40 knots, but we will not give up the main thing: we have suffered, begged, the fruit of inspired labor, losses, disappointments and victories - Ours!

    In any case, to ensure the operation of such floating assets, it is necessary to create a system of combat, special technical and logistics support, and this is a very vulnerable target for aircraft and cruise missiles, and on the water, the actions of such floating assets are relatively easy to detect and destroy.

    This is some indication that the "great maritime power Ukraine" is preparing to become a river state with a flotilla on the Dnieper. The Sea of ​​Azov has been lost for Ukraine forever, and the loss of the Black Sea coast is a matter of the near future. In fact, a cross has been put on the Ukrainian Navy: the ship’s composition is almost completely destroyed (maybe a couple of pennants remained hidden somewhere in the estuaries), the naval aviation of the Ukrainian Navy was reset at Zmeiny, the 36th Marine Brigade of the Ukrainian Navy is in captivity, the 35th Marine Brigade of the incomplete composition, and possibly a coastal artillery brigade and a DBK division (possibly because in the area of ​​​​Odessa and Nikolvevo, the APU weapons and military equipment are being disposed of daily along with the personnel). But hardly anyone cut the 13 admiral and general positions of the Ukrainian Navy. After the loss of the Donbass, the turn of the Odessa and Nikolaev regions will come (the corridor to Transnistria is still needed), the regions of the Zaporozhye and Kharkov regions that have not yet been liberated, the goals of the RF Armed Forces in relation to the purely Russian-speaking region - the Dnipropetrovsk region, are not yet clear, but so far there have only been strikes against military infrastructure, but the foot of the Russian soldier has not yet set foot during the NMD, although the battles are taking place not far from the borders of the region .. The Armed Forces of Ukraine hope to use river boats in subsequent battles off the banks of the Dnieper, but in the variant of the liberation of the Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa and Dnepropetrovsk regions and full control by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation of the lower reaches of the Dnieper and Danube for the Ukrainian Navy is of little importance. Boats in the upper part of the Dnieper will be useful for Ukraine only for parades in Kyiv and the protection of the future river border, who will let them into the lower reaches of the Dnieper, not to mention the Black Sea. So the prospects for the Ukrainian Navy are very "bright"
