"Fox holes" under the roadway: reconnaissance in combat of the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the west of the village of Peski

The liberation of the village of Peski opened the way for the allied forces to the west - the development of the offensive in this direction makes it possible to encircle the enemy in the Avdeevsky fortified area, from where Donetsk is being shelled.

However, behind the Sands, the enemy has a layered defense, which has been created over many years. In particular, the enemy is actively using the so-called "fox holes" - underground shelters with several entrances. They are located under the roadway, being covered from artillery fire by layers of asphalt, crushed stone, and concrete.

They quite competently make “fox holes”, right by the road, by the canvas, and burrow under the roadbed. Jewelery must work with artillery to knock them out

- explains the military commander RT.

One of these strongholds was taken by the troops of the DPR. The fighters of the assault battalion of the 11th regiment conducted reconnaissance in force, attacking the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on one of the transport detours near Pesok. The enemy threw into the counterattack the forces of the BTG, consisting of soldiers trained under the guidance of NATO instructors. Created according to British standards, battalion tactical groups consist of companies with their own mortars and reinforced tanks. Judging by the video, the attempt of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to recapture the lost positions failed.

    Here is what the collonel writes: More than 1200 Ukrainian servicemen died during the defeat of the offensive of Ukrainian troops in the Nikolaev-Krivoy Rog and other directions.
    Also, the effective actions of the Russian group of troops destroyed 48 tanks, 46 infantry fighting vehicles, 37 other armored fighting vehicles, 8 pickup trucks with heavy machine guns in a day.

        Either they dig the sea, or they dig holes, there is a lot of experience in digging. It's time to smoke the dust out of the holes.

        After the war (in the partisan detachment he was a kid in Belarus), the father-in-law probably got into the NKVD unit to fight these Bandera.
        In a word, if a cache was found, then a couple of canisters of gasoline and after a while a grenade went there, in a word, everything took out the lids, well, banderlogs for one thing.

    All this is strange. European armies have no experience of combat operations with regular armies in Europe. What can they teach when they were crushed by semi-guerrilla units in BV and Asia!? The use of instructors from the Baltic states especially causes a smile. There is no army, but there is an instructor. Funny!

      so apparently, the task is worth it - to see how their tactics will work against the Russian army. They will observe and make changes. The Ukrainians have the role of guinea pigs here.

        I agree! Many instructors are testing their methods on Ukrainians, and the Ukronazis are consumables, now we will denify the ukrovermacht, then the United States and the geyropa, together with Naglia Lyulya, will receive, with shouts, and then for us!

      Trained instructors in aerial reconnaissance, sniper shooting, medical assistance, mine-explosive training may well be from the armed forces of any state.

        I do not agree with you. It teaches real combat, and in peacetime it is akin to command and staff exercises. This is also training, of course, but with a lot of conventions.

          The instructor, in any case, gives basic knowledge, and experience is the "son of difficult mistakes" (C)

    Close combat. Scary. And the infantry has no connection with the copter. It's even more scary. The copter did not help them meet the ukrov. I hope ours are alive.

    about fox holes - just a couple of days ago, on a video taken from a UAV, I saw such trenches dug along an asphalt road. On the reverse (from the enemy) slopes, right along the edge of the canvas, with holes going under the road. Then I was already surprised - cunningly invented.

    Shooting Samoli. The upper level of the skill of tactical art. No matter how much you teach a dog, but when you see a cat, you will forget the multiplication table)))

    No one is embarrassed by the approach of a loaded infantry fighting vehicle to the place of landing of drugs under the supervision of an UAV? And did it arrive?

      And why be surprised, these are not exercises, this is war! It's all in the ass! And of course, watching a shootout at point-blank range is, of course, horror! Respect to our guys. They are heroes!

    No one really created the mood to hammer the Westerners. It's about the speech in the video.
