NATO general: almost all equipment supplied to Kyiv requires long-term training of military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The supply of Western weapons to Ukraine can be described as a race against time. The fact is that the timing of its receipt is directly related to the duration of the training of the Ukrainian military, so that they can use it.

According to The New York Times, the former Assistant Secretary General of the North Atlantic Alliance, Lieutenant General Heinrich Brauss, believes so.

The NATO general notes that almost all military equipment supplied to Kyiv requires long-term training of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. It can take several months or even a year.

For example, so that the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine could master the western tank the armament that was promised to Kyiv will take from three months to one year. Of course, the instructors of the North Atlantic Alliance are trying to reduce the training time to a minimum, but even in this case, training will take some time. In particular, European experts claim that they will be able to qualitatively prepare the Ukrainian military to operate Western equipment in about five weeks. But it will definitely take a whole year to train the crews of air defense systems.

The latest package of US military aid to Ukraine, announced this Friday. Includes weapon long range. Washington claims that it will help to push back Russian troops and effectively strike at the rear logistics facilities of the Russian Armed Forces.

    NATO members can deliberately powder our brains with such statements.
    Maybe the supply of NATO equipment with ready-made crews of vacationers and, in parallel, training of Ukronazis on it ... everything must be checked for the authenticity of these statements from at least three independent sources of information that do not inspire suspicion.

      Until you pull the bastard out of the hatch by the scruff of the neck, you will not know the name and place of origin of the tanker. Therefore, it's all blah blah, but you need to prepare for all the surprises.

      They can't, but they do. The Iraqis have perfectly mastered both the Abrams and the F-16. Funds for the training of Ukrainian pilots on the F-16 were approved by the congress in July 2022. At the same time, the minimum program is to train to strike at ground targets, no one is going to make air aces out of them, the congress announced a period of 3 (!!!) months for retraining. According to other data, the period will be 6 months. Tank crews are preparing even faster.

      easy to learn doesn't always mean smart. Sharikov in the Heart of a Dog was a very fast learner, but few people consider him smart and talented

    Three to six months. Well, again, an excuse: "... We then delivered to them everything that has been accumulated over 75 years, but they are a worse gift ... and have not mastered it; only Mosin rifles are suitable for them ...".

    Something often in NATO sounded a warning that retraining for NATO equipment takes a lot of time, but even with accelerated training it will take from a month to a year, depending on the purpose of the equipment. The first thing that comes to mind is that they lay straws under themselves, so that in the future, in case of failures at the front, shift the blame to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We said that long-term training is required, and you are faster, faster. Here is the result.

    . What difference does it make what they say, you have to look at what they DO. And it's prepared the way it's supposed to be.
    And you need to prepare to the maximum.

    He did not say anything new, NATO equipment is capricious, often breaks down, stuffed with electronics, and difficult to operate. The same Leclerc, where the price of electronics is much higher than the price of iron, how much advertising was that super duper, and what in real life? They do not operate because it is expensive to repair. Of course, you can conditionally weld hatches and send them in one direction, well, you can do this with free T-72s, with leopards this is a Darwin award for inappropriate behavior.

    That's what surprises me in this matter - for whom, or more precisely, how stupid the Euros are, the warriors consider the Ukrainians. You just need to be able to troll ukrov so subtly.
