Two Turkish Kirpi armored vehicles of the Marine Corps of the Naval Forces of Ukraine were shot down in Marinka

Two Turkish-made Kirpi armored vehicles were shot down in Marinka. Footage appeared on social networks with wrecked armored cars that were abandoned in the mud of a country road.

Allegedly, these armored vehicles belonged to the 35th Separate Marine Brigade of the Ukrainian Navy. This brigade is considered one of the "elite" in the modern Ukrainian army and has long been operating in the Donbass against Russian troops.



The BMC Kirpi armored vehicles were designed and built by the Turkish Navy. They are actively used by the ground forces and the gendarmerie of Turkey, and in addition, they are supplied to other countries - Qatar, Turkmenistan, Tunisia, Libya, Somalia. Starting from 2022, about 200 Turkish-made armored vehicles have been delivered to Ukraine. This is to the question of Turkey's "neutrality" in the Ukrainian conflict.


Turkish armored cars are in service with many Ukrainian formations, including the marine brigade mentioned above. However, the combat qualities of the armored vehicle, which had previously been actively advertised by the Turkish side, turned out to be somewhat exaggerated. This is not the first footage of wrecked Turkish-made armored vehicles.

Previously, Ukrainian marines, when they received such armored vehicles, were very happy and recorded videos. Now it turned out that Turkish armored vehicles do not guarantee invulnerability to the APU militants. They are often knocked out, and off-road they do not move very well.

Recall that now active battles are going on in Marinka. Russian troops continue to gradually push back the Ukrainian formations, but the latter demonstrate a certain resilience, holding on to their positions to the last.

      Flashed already in the photo and in the videos, these Kirpi lined up more than once. In war, they destroy enemy equipment without looking where it was made. Then it is possible to control the country in which this equipment was produced. Well, the Turks, as they helped the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will continue to help, regardless of the "partnership" with Russia.

          Throwing such machines into battle in modern conditions is either the height of stupidity or out of hopelessness. They are not for modern combat when the troops are saturated with anti-tank weapons. So there is absolutely nothing strange or out of the ordinary that they were knocked out.

      I saw a Polish-made self-propelled gun Crab here in the photo.

      This is to the question of Turkey's "neutrality" in the Ukrainian conflict.

      The question is, why Russia has such a partner who sticks a scimitar in the back at the first opportunity?
      As Nikolai Nosov wrote there:
      I'd rather not have a son at all than a thief's son.
      Let Russia not have such a partner at all than a foul partner.

        But at the same time, the Turks ask that they not be interfered with in Syria. The Turks have their own special operation there.

        Turks sell military equipment to Ukraine. I love technology. Why shouldn't they? Well, if I were Erdogan, I would behave in exactly the same way. Trade with all the country, they buy grain from Ukraine, the same must be paid. There are no friends in big politics, there are interests.

        Well, actually, the company supplies, this is such a business, if anything, yes, it is also promoted by the state, but this is business. Can you explain why the Turks should not sell their BA to Ukraine? And the gas that goes to Turkey and the construction of a nuclear power plant is also a business.
        Welcome to capitalism, Yuri, a German company, for example, during WWII, profited from air raids on Germany, and Ford built a factory there that produced trucks and light armored vehicles, which was later used against American soldiers.

        Yes, completeness to you, what kind of "partner" is this? We do not have any allied agreements with Turkey at all, and therefore Ankara acts exclusively in the interests of Ankara. If Edik has the opportunity to earn and replenish his budget, he will do it no matter what, especially if inflation and the depreciation of the lira break all records. Let's just say that Ankara is acting in defiance not only of our interests, but also in defiance of the mattresses with which they are generally allies in NATO.

        Well, there seems to be one “little detail” that is not important for you, but a “fucking problem” for Russia is the strait through the Bosphorus. We have no other way out of the Black Sea. We have to reckon and negotiate. In order to punish the "paskuda partner" by military means and rename the Bosphorus into the "Yura55 Sibiryak" strait, we currently do not have enough strength.

      In the presence of the political will of the top leadership of the Russian Federation, all this (Turkish meanness) is decided once or twice. The threat, and if necessary, the execution and supply of the necessary weapons to the Kurds would quickly bring down all the arrogance from Erdogan.

      At a cursory glance, these Turkish armored vehicles are like coffins on wheels.
