What do they rely on in the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Considering how events are developing, how they scare us all with this very counter-offensive (although why is it “counter”? We didn’t seem to be advancing anywhere, it’s a pure position). However, only a fool will dismiss the issue of possible attempts by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to return what is theirs and go further. Of course, these attempts will be, the whole question is their effectiveness.

And it is about that very efficiency that it is worth talking now. Because it will be the key to the success or failure of the upcoming summer campaign.



It's worth starting with defense. In general, everything starts with it, in no country you will find the ministry of attack, but there is a ministry of defense in any self-respecting country. Even in the Baltic formations, and in them - in particular.

Defense


From which all attacks begin.


It is difficult to say how many years such a principle has existed, but any defense stands on four pillars, to which not so long ago, a hundred years ago, a fifth was added.

1. Personnel in the form of commanders of the middle and senior levels, tactically competent and able to organize both defensive actions and counter-offensive or offensive.

2. Intelligence. Knowing more about the enemy than he knows about you is the key to successful actions both on the defensive and on the offensive.

3. Communication. What provides quick leadership of troops for command and interaction of different types of troops and different units during the battle.

4. Artillery. This also includes MLRS and tactical missiles. That which inflicts damage on the enemy and ensures the advancement of his troops forward.

5. Aviation. Yes, as practice has shown, it is also possible to fight practically without it, but in fact a lot depends on aviation, because now it is not only reconnaissance and attack. It is aviation support that can guarantee successful defense operations, since aircraft are more mobile weapons capable of inflicting damage on the enemy in all echelons of his defense, moreover, doing this more quickly than the same missile systems.

If all this takes place, and plus there is a defense in depth with lined up fortified lanes, and there is a reserve in the form of armored vehicles that can plug holes in the defense, it will be very difficult for the enemy to break such a defense.

Today, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have four out of five points. There are middle-level commanders, they could not help but grow up during such a time of waging a war. Top-level commanders planning tactical operations... But who said that they must necessarily be Ukrainians? The British, Americans and Poles are pretty good at this.

Intelligence is also very worthy, crowds of Ukrainian drones, hovering over Russian positions, provide a sufficient amount of information “on the ground”, and what requires a wider view is provided by NATO AWACS aircraft and American military satellites.

Moreover, the point about communication immediately comes into play, since the exchange of data takes place simply instantly, and the commanders on the ground have everything in order to make a decision about their actions.

But the communication itself in the Armed Forces of Ukraine is set up by the NATO allies at the proper level and is obviously better than the Baofengs of the Russian army, which operate in the civilian range without encryption from the word “absolutely”.

Artillery - everything is very complicated here, because the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have such a number of barrels as the Russian army, but there is a small (comparatively) number of more accurate and long-range howitzers received from NATO. And these weapons, being concentrated in one place, will be able to influence the situation. In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have at their disposal complexes of the Hymars family, which have already shown their super-efficiency.

Aviation is the weak point of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. But the sky above the front line is generally quiet, the use of aviation is hampered by air defense systems on both sides of the front. So really, 4+1.

But nevertheless, the defense is built, and it works. However, we are more interested in what will begin from the very moment when the transition from defense to offensive occurs.

Offensive



Offensive is even more complex than defense, which consists of several phases.

1. Preparation. This, of course, is pulling up reserves, creating superiority, artillery barrels, and so on.

2. Breakthrough of the enemy's defense. Strikes from everything that is possible on enemy positions and rear facilities and the offensive itself. At which, we note, the attacking side suffers more losses than the defending side. On the contrary, all these 8 to 1 for the advancing are cynical fairy tales for children and retired believers. The enemy, being in well-equipped positions (and he is interested in this), with spares behind him, will do his best to thin out the ranks of the attackers and knock out equipment.


When breakthroughs are successful, then “boilers” are realized, in which the most valuable thing turns out - trained personnel. Not equipment, not ammunition, the most important thing is people. And it is precisely the death of personnel in the encirclement that is the main success of the entire operation. Even leaving heavy equipment, but leaving the "cauldron", the saved personnel then simply continue to do their job.

The best example here is Azov. Surrounded, partially knocked out, surrendered, but then the released personnel returned - and here you have the Azov brigade.


If the defender manages to withdraw troops from the "cauldron" by abandoning heavy equipment, the results of the operation become doubtful, because you have laid down your personnel, and the enemy retreated to previously prepared positions, inflicting maximum damage on you. In personnel.

What will the capture of Artyomovsk mean now?


Only that American strategists will give the command to retreat. There is no encirclement, there is a displacement of Ukrainian troops, and therefore they will leave quietly, not like in Ilovaisk they left the "boiler" in their time. Classically, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, led by experienced advisers, withdraws the most significant units, and the task of the rest is precisely to cover, that is, to give their own the opportunity to leave and stand on ...

Yes, but where do you stand? What's next, after Artemovsk? And further on the map Kramatorsk-Slavic fortified area. Moreover, they worked on it for more than one year and exhausted more than one hundred trucks with concrete.

Result? Obvious. Artemovsk/Bakhmut is no longer a city, it's a pile of ruins, no value. And it will not be very easy to defend in it, under certain circumstances. Worse, let's say, than in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk, with bakeries and hospitals behind.

Of course, sooner or later, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be forced out of Artemovsk. But exactly what will be forced out, yes, with heavy battles, overcoming, but there will be no “cauldron” with the subsequent destruction of the most valuable. As for the equipment... NATO will bring new ones, they won't go anywhere.


It is clear that a detour maneuver is from the realm of fantasy, because everything is viewed by drones for tens of kilometers, the satellite is played tricks in orbit, and all detours are reliably bombarded with mines.

Therefore, one thing remains: to storm in the forehead. It is obviously too difficult to develop a different way to solve the problem, the single-tasking method dominates here, and therefore the Ukrainians use this, arranging the “loosening” of the defense line. That is, taking advantage of the full advantage in intelligence, organizing harassment strikes in different directions, with one goal - not to show where a serious blow will actually be delivered.

Two different approaches: the Russian method of pressure, which uses a large number of personnel, and the Ukrainian one, when the commanders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine try to carry out maneuvering actions that give a different ratio of losses. The Armed Forces of Ukraine simply cannot afford to lose a lot of manpower, the mobilization reserve is not the same.

But even the mobile reserve is easier for the Ukrainian side to use. They have only two types of formations, directly parts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and parts of the Teroborona. All. The time of dashing formations at the beginning of the ATO has passed, and all volunteer battalions have slowly divided the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Internal Affairs, which controls the Territorial Defense, among themselves.

Everything is more complicated for the Russian side. I have already written on the topic of interlacing, I will briefly repeat: today, what is fighting against the Armed Forces of Ukraine looks rather motley. Let's look at this:

- personnel units, with combat experience, trained in the LDNR, were released to participate in offensive operations, as they were really the most trained in combat terms;

- in their place came the fighters called up for mobilization in the LDNR, whose level of training was much lower. But most importantly, the level of training of junior and middle command staff was also lower. How much these measures weakened the defense is a question;

- in part of the Russian army and the People's Militia of the LDNR, battalions of BARS began to attach. We wrote about it. These are the best units in terms of morale, but their equipment did not leave much to be desired - in the best scenario, the only heavy weapons were mortars. Armored vehicles were issued absolutely randomly, as well as the command staff. But nevertheless, the BARS earned the well-deserved respect;

- for some reason, units of the National Guard, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Chechen battalions were involved. Yes, Akhmat is indeed a force, but: there was no combined arms training because it was completely unnecessary, and therefore all successes are solely due to personal qualities;

- various departmental special forces and a cherry on the cake - PMCs.

All this gave a colorful patchwork quilt, which was very easily torn and did not stretch well. That is, there was a violation of paragraph 3: it was impossible to manage normally in real time such a structure from various formations with the level of culture of combat operations available in the RF Armed Forces. And speaking specifically about communication - and even more so, given the difference in frequencies of even existing radio stations.

In general, the SVO has already shown that a crowd of randomly assembled and poorly trained people with machine guns is of absolutely no combat value against the backdrop of well-coordinated and well-controlled formations with heavy weapons and armored vehicles.

What can I say, in 2014, the Armed Forces of Ukraine acted exactly like this: driven mobilized, volunteer battalions rushed into battle, assembled precisely “on the knee” and armed in much the same way.

It was surprising how yesterday's miners and merchants beat them and beat them very successfully. Albeit with the participation of advisers. Yes, the successes of the militia gave reason to say that the Russian army was fighting instead of the militia, but even the Armed Forces of Ukraine knew perfectly well that this was far from the case. And they drew conclusions. First of all, regarding organization and preparation.


Today, Ukrainians don’t even have to strain themselves, training grounds are open for them all over Europe, where foreign instructors are happy to teach Ukrainians all the intricacies of modern combat.

On the Russian side, as many state, everything still remains at the level of the first months of the NMD with a bias towards assaults.

Sturm (German Sturm - attack, attack) - a way of capturing a fortress, airfield, city or a heavily fortified group of positions, which consists in a quick and often unexpected attack by forces that often surpass the enemy in the level of combat training.

Depending on the previous actions, the assault is either in the form of an attack by open force, or in the form of a surprise attack.

In the first case, success is based on the superiority of the attacker's forces and on the preparation of an assault with artillery fire in order to weaken the defender's fire, destroy the fortifications occupied by him and thereby prepare the way for the assault columns.

The success of a surprise attack is based on the unpreparedness of the defenders, respectively, they try to carry out the attack at night or at dawn, unexpectedly for the defender, secretly approaching his location

Long definition, but nothing to be done. Here are the questions:
- And if the enemy is prepared and waiting?
- and what to do if there are no shells in the proper quantities?

Today it is clear that the “shell hunger”, which is present on both sides, is not a hindrance to the headquarters. Therefore, from Maryinka to Kremennaya, the infantry of the two armies exterminates itself in short attacks, often several times a day.

In general, the very definition of the term "assault" has changed a lot. If the old one meant a long preparation, including from a siege, then the modern one has the meaning of a head-on attack without any preparation at all.

But this leaves room for maneuvers in the headquarters. Did not work out? Yes, but this is an assault! Losses? Naturally, this is an assault!! Preparation? Why, it's an assault!!! You just need to repeat. And they repeat. To infinity and with the same success.

"Wagners" is separate. There they really initially prepare assault infantry (one of our regular readers shares microdoses of information there) and they prepare seriously. The 1st and 2nd Corps of the Republics had something similar, but the assault infantry of the LDNR had already become history. Approximately, as the personnel of the airmobile brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which live in the third or fourth formation.

In reality, if you look, then yes, the Ukrainian side has practically stopped the assault operations. Just nobody. And those who remained, they must be protected for future battles. And to teach, fortunately, there is no shortage of assistants.

Meanwhile, speaking of assault infantry as a whole subclass, it is worth noting that this is not just infantry in armor, which must go and knock the enemy out of the fortified area. These should be properly trained fighters who can operate both in the field and in urban conditions, with a wide range of weapons. That is, in addition to AK and RPG-7, such a fighter must be able to work with RShG-1 / RShG-2, RPO-A Shmel, AGS. This is the minimum.


How many of you readers have heard about this level of training from mobilized acquaintances? The maximum preparation included shooting and throwing grenades. At least - shooting from a machine gun.

Therefore, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who perfectly understand the essence of what is happening at the prompt from above, perfectly beat off dozens of assaults, in which unprepared and insufficiently armed fighters participate. However, the question of how Ukrainians will arrange their assaults and offensives is still up in the air. If only because there are no fundamental differences in the mass training of personnel among the warring parties.

The fact that a certain number of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are being trained abroad will in no way affect the overall picture. Yes, the training of drivers for NATO equipment is a necessity, because there is a difference in technology. They need to be cooked. It is no less necessary to train both the commanders of the vehicles and the shooters-operators, but what can I say - it is necessary to train everyone.

But excuse me, there is no way to take the two millionth army of Ukraine to Spain or Great Britain to train there. It's clear. Of course, the chain training system, when one trained to train five and further along the chain ... This is good in peacetime, and not when everything is on fire in the truest sense of the word.

Several thousand trained will not help the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the offensive. No matter how well prepared the same commanders are, no matter how skillfully the fighter handles the machine gun, no matter how accurately he throws grenades - all this is nothing in the offensive, since bullets and grenades will also fly from that side. And a machine gun with grenades will not be able to compensate for the lack of heavy group infantry weapons and training to work with them.

communication



In general, this is the most important advantage of the Armed Forces of Ukraine over the Russian army. Not only did good specialists from Europe set up communications for the Ukrainians, they also supplied them with normal modern radio stations in decent quantities. This is perhaps a more serious advantage than the Highmars.

It is impossible to say that the Russian army does not have a closed communications system. She is. R-187P1 "Azart", which we will pay tribute to in the near future.


However, the presence of "Azart", of course, in limited quantities, does not solve communication problems, but rather exacerbates them, and here's why: the Russian army is saturated with Chinese civilian range radios. Yes, "Baofengami", which not only are tapped for "time", but also glow in the radio range, like Christmas trees. A find for a slave.

Here's an example, from my personal archive. By the antenna, you can immediately distinguish where the Azart is, its flat and long well, you can’t confuse it with anything, but you can see both Motorola and Baofeng with a reinforced antenna in the pictures.





But since there was nothing else, then at least Fengy. But there is one more nuance here: the Russian equipment coming into the units as replenishment is not the one that "has no analogues in the world", and which "no worse than modern designs", mostly equipped with R-123 and R-173 radios.

These are wonderful radio stations, I would like to say a few words about them.


R-123 "Magnolia" was born in Voronezh. And this is where the production started. In 1960, the R-123 went into production. That is, the radio station is only 63 years old. P-173 "Paragraph" is not exactly a complete "paragraph", 12 years younger. But the main disadvantage is that they simply cannot connect with the very Chinese products that everyone speaks.

But in operation, these walkie-talkies simply yell all over the air: “Here is armor !!!”, because identifying them for a modern specialist is a piece of cake. And, accordingly, who needs to beacon about the fact that in such and such a square there are kagal armor. What's next, pulling up ATGMs or a visit drones are indeed aspects.

Do not take Ukrainians for idiots. Idiots were knocked out back in 2015. Now there are quite a large number of literate, and most importantly, those who want to survive and win, specialists. Well aware of where we have weak points and where, accordingly, it will be necessary to hit harder. As it was last summer, when mobile groups on light wheels literally swept away barriers, clearing the way tanks and infantry.

In general, if you look at what they write on Ukrainian channels such as "Insider", "Real War" or "Informant of Ukraine", you can get some valuable information. They also look at us and discuss our strengths and weaknesses.

And on the other side they are well aware that in terms of communication they are far superior to us. And the situation is that the Russian army will continue to fight as it did in 2022, with partially manned troops, with a minimum level of training for privates and sergeants, and the control of these troops will be difficult as for purely technical reasons related to the equipment of communications.

Moreover, many express "deep satisfaction" with the assaults, which, according to the Ukrainian side, are fighting back with huge losses for the Russian side. And the highlight is that just as long as the territorial defense units are holding positions in Artemovsk / Bakhmut, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is withdrawing its combat-ready forces from the potential boiler, understaffing and retraining entire brigades in the rear at the expense of those who have been trained abroad.

So, of course, everything looks quite effective and plausible, but here's how much time it will take - alas, they don't discuss it here. But it is clear that just as the Minsk agreements bought Ukraine time to create the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so the defense of Artemovsk buys time to create new brigades.

The main danger of the Armed Forces of Ukraine



The fact that Ukrainians are given NATO equipment is not as scary as it seems. All the same, its quantity is limited, and superiority is not guaranteed.

The main danger is that Ukrainian commanders who have received combat experience are learning to fight in a completely different war, not the model of the First World War. A different pace of operations, a different flow of information, a different, freer level of decision-making. Multiplied by the huge amount of timely information about the enemy - this is the key to success, which they rely on on the other side. And not without reason.

And these structures (what's there - just headquarters) will work faster than Russian ones by several levels. As long as we have approvals and requests for permission to open fire, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will do their job. This is more dangerous than all the "Leopards" and "Abrams" combined.

I read here among our z-patriots, who will never end up in the trenches, because their front line is at home, behind the keyboard, how cheerfully the Abrams from our RPG-7s will burn, and I realized how sad everything is. Because I doubt they will burn. The grenade launchers will be looked out for by drones and drop mines and grenades on them, so those will not be up to tanks. Actually, as it is already happening.

And yes, our enemy is well aware that his advantage is provided not by technology and its performance characteristics, but by the speed and quality of control. And here you have detours and coverage of our forces, and a difficult choice for Russian fighters between retreat and fighting in the environment. The point is that, thanks to advanced control and communication systems, the enemy will be in a better position on the battlefield than our forces.

In short, Raisins 2.0.

I would like everything to be different, but it is not clear that we have at least some movement towards improvement. Well, except for the adoption of the law on deviators.

Postscript: I paid a lot of attention to communication. Therefore, I will leave artillery and aviation for next time.

        What surprises me is the author's pessimism.

        However, the author forgot that in the offensive, and in defense, the most important thing is the supply.

        Without cartridges, grenades, food and medicine, you won’t fight much.

        And any offensive is a stretching of communications.

            The author about the connection caught up as if the VFU had all the Harrises.


            For interest, after a year of war, the layouts for communications are as follows: (I did not take into account wired communications)

            For Ukrainians, communication via open channels (VHF) agalog baofengs, today occupies only 3% of the total airtime. Moreover, this is mainly communication in the rear and when the front starts to move.
            -10% GSM phone and calls on any Signals, Nettles, Vibers.
            -7% all sorts of Harris and Aselsan
            The use of "Starlink" in general is not given to statistics; they are almost in all major positions and CPs.

            And 80% is the air of digital and trunking communication systems.
            It can be distinguished DMR (75%) and APCO-25 (5% mostly mercenaries and allies, and special structures).
            Ukrainians use DMR mostly encrypted in 256 bits.

            Now for us.

            10% of communication is carried out on Excitement and other Peanuts
            5% is closed DMR
            40% are GSM and Telegram. (Although it seems to me that 110% of the traffic and command and control of troops from both sides goes by cart, and the most informed person on Earth about how it really is there is Durov)
            And 45% are analog Baofengs audible to the entire planet.

            That is, we seem to have a connection, but, as it were, there is a nuance.

            - "What will we do, van Stalin? What will we do, we will envy!" (With)

          By simple logic, it is clear that there will be an offensive - they already know where the warehouses and headquarters are. Artillery is a little closer and there is no supply and command. It is clear here - the shoulder of the force is small.

Excitement, I would not praise much, so-so device, the radius is small. Yes, nothing really works normally there (p 159,168), the first hill or beam and kayuk of communication, pull the "beam" if you have the opportunity and skill. In general, it's not fun.

                I believe that your knowledge in this case does not matter. And I don't need to know what it is or how it works. According to the position and form of admission, it is not allowed. For me, it is enough to understand that the ZAS unit was connected instead of a headset, and you can also connect a smartphone, laptop or tablet there using an adapter cable. Encoding can be done in software rather than in hardware as in the case of AAS.
                And when using a telephone line, in our case it is a P-274M field wire, an ancient telephone modem without a dialing function, equipped with a USB-RS232 converter, and connected to a laptop or smartphone, can be used, which can encode with the required speed and secrecy .

                  ZAS on the line, for example, Rota - Battalion is hardly needed. As for the classification, the conversation on a regular mobile phone is also encrypted and it is so simply impossible to eavesdrop on it. Those. if there was a military cellular connection, which had been promised for a long time, then by regularly changing the codes it would be impossible for the enemy to eavesdrop.

                    ZAS, or otherwise coding, is needed everywhere. Cellular communication is tapped by the enemy without problems, and also allows you to determine the coordinates of the source.
                    And if there was a military coded communication, then there would be no questions.

      Yes, this is Girkin's nonsense. Chinese walkie-talkies with an encrypted channel have long been purchased by wagons. Resistance to electronic warfare is a question, but you turn on this electronic warfare. You will rake on the radiation of the antenna with an artillery strike very quickly

      Our patriotic community lives in its own fictional world, and it’s even hard for them to imagine that after the pogrom of our armor from a foolish raid on Kiev, right now the Ukrainians have a stupid advantage in tanks in the theater. We have 400, after the delivery of Leopards they will have about 800 and 200 heavy

      Of course, this can be corrected and brought from storage bases, where we still have 400, but for this our patriotic public must believe that the leaks are not so far from reality

      We beat the tanks in Kiev, so we are still raking. The Ukrainians are counting on the advantage in tanks. Everything else is much worse for them.

          This is the wrong approach to the problem.
          If earlier the ZAS block was used to ensure the secrecy of communication, at the moment its functions can be performed by a smartphone with the appropriate software. That is, instead of a headset, a smartphone should be connected to the radio station body through the headphone jack, and through the adapter cord, and encoding should be done using it. On the smartphone, you should disable the usual GSM functions (so as not to be detected), for example, by switching to "airplane mode" and use the appropriate program, both for messaging and for voice transmission.
          High bandwidth is not required, it is possible to designate a target and its coordinates within one SMS. And for encoding, a digital key and a standard algorithm for its processing are sufficient. For competent specialists, programmers and signalmen work for two months. In addition, it is desirable to use ancient noise-resistant protocols for communication sessions, like X-25 or something more secret.
          That is, to sum up, instead of a heaped-up ZAS unit, an ordinary household smartphone with the appropriate program can be used through the headphone jack. Laptops and tablets can be used in exactly the same capacity.
          It's just a matter of wanting to do it, nothing more.

            Encrypted transmission of text messages can be done in this way.
            But the transmitter will have to wait for confirmation from the receiver.
            And retransmit on errors.
            It will not work to transmit the same voice - the speed will be very low.
            Is it realistic for a fighter to type text messages?

              Excuse me, but such fears and concerns are not very well founded. The ancient modem connection quite coped with both confirmations and the use of noise-immune protocols. And they managed to shove the voice from telephone 64k into 8k IP telephony. The voice, if anything, can be transmitted in the voice assistant mode, in text with voice acting.
              And for transmitting coordinates and describing enemy equipment, an extremely low transmission rate is just enough. And pictures and movies can be transmitted, if possible, by other channels.

There were no retreats, as well as successful offensives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. There is a slow pushing of the APU. Ukraine daily suffers losses of hundreds of dead and wounded, the economy is in the trash, people are running over the hill as best they can, and who said that we are the losers? Maybe we would like a quick offensive, but in modern conditions these are big losses, so why bear them when you can bomb out over time what Ukraine will return, what belongs to us, itself.

      Again a wagon of information. Critical. One constant problem. Pies about materiel and organization of communications are baked not by a shoemaker, but not by a specialist.
      Of course, there is also a r / st R 123 on old armored vehicles and much more that does not meet ever-increasing requirements. But how are ours fighting now? Without communication, without electronic warfare?
      It is unlikely....
      Articles like this make people misinformed. Here, they say, where is the problem: there are no radio stations ... Or there are not enough new weapons. You understand, the T-62 is being modernized for the NWO.
      But the main miscalculation is not at all the lack of communication, it is, although not fully perfect, and not the discrepancy with the latest requirements of certain weapons. With full contentment of dill from NATO countries, we always have some samples that will be worse, and something better.
      We started the NWO with peacetime forces, hoping for the Crimean option, but we got a rather protracted war. Mobilization was carried out late and enough?
      R / st and so on we will do or bring from China. Order and discipline in the troops, the unity of the rear and the front, a single military camp, the formation of local defense, at least in the front-line areas, that's where not everything is in order.

      Roskosmos is a performer.
      No one will make a product if it has not been ordered and financed for its manufacture.
      Those who have worked in real production know this very well. Only office hamsters don't know.
      The easiest way is to blame everything on the performer.
      Why did you make three harvesters and not five?
      How much they ordered and financed, so much they did.
      This is how production works.
      So the legs grow from the Ministry of Defense. They must order what they need with the declared characteristics and in the right quantity and provide funding.
      If they were not given money, then the Ministry of Finance is to blame.
      That is, Siluanov, whom you did not even mention.
      No one will do anything without an order and funding.
      The same applies not only to communications, but also to drones with which the customer also missed, precision-guided munitions, shells and everything else.

The problem is precisely in the military-industrial complex, that is, in production. To make in a single copy is one thing, to launch in a series is completely different. Many enterprises are simply not ready for large-scale production. Everyone here is to blame. The Ministry of Defense is to blame for the lack of a clear rearmament program. The management of the military-industrial complex is to blame for the lack of production modernization programs. The Ministry of Industry is that it has not developed a clear program for the development of key industries, primarily microelectronics and radioelectronics.

      And what does Rogozin and Manturov have to do with it? Nobody checked the army, Shoigu reported at parades, told fairy tales in the taiga. The head of the ground forces and the chief of communications were quite pleased with themselves, information about them is an open secret. General Kartapolov in the State Duma thinks, no matter how something happens. That's how we live.

      Unfortunately, these persons are not in a hurry to go to hell, they are doing quite well here, at least until 2024 they have positions and shoulder straps, and the chances of removing them are minuscule while their "roof" is still in place ... now we are talking about to identify the main directions of the Bandera offensive (my opinion is that there will be at least two of them, but if ours do not hold out, then it may become three or four ...), and here we run into the components: 1. About communication everything was found out in the author’s article, it is no good and you should not expect improvement ... 2. Intelligence - a) space - none, the need for satellites is about one fifth of the minimum, the passage of information to the level of the regiment-battalion - at least 4 instances b) aviation - none, there are no AWACS aircraft (E-3 and E-2), as well as E-8 analogues in the NWO zone, the Belarusian version was covered with great shame ... reconnaissance UAVs only copters and small aircraft type, everything that is more - single copies, and so - "concepts are being worked out, designed, tested, prepared for production ..." c) radio and radio engineering - it is very difficult to say something, no special data about systems and their characteristics ... d) undercover - there is, but very little, no one has particularly bothered with this issue in 30 years ... e) front-line - there is, but the risks are very high, our DRGs are detected by copters, and if the locals see it, the majority inform their own, everything is the same as put on enemy territory ... 3) artillery - much more in number, much less range and controllability, shells are mainly used to increase the "lunar landscape" ... you watch any record from the copter - only holes in the fields ... 4) aviation - there are a lot of them, but the risks of losses are extremely high, especially attack aircraft and helicopters ... if Bander’s air defense is suppressed in the area, it turns out well, but there are very few such places ... efficiency is, as it were, more than one tenth of the necessary need ... well and 5) the commanders of the upper and higher levels are the "cherry on the cake", you don’t hear about them and most of them are not visible, examples of successful command decisions - the cat cried ... I’m surprised how this has not yet been born an analogue of order No. 222 of 1942. .. bitter, but somehow it’s not expected to be particularly good ... here the crowd previously downvoted for the comment that out of the entire LBS, progress is only in 3 local areas, and even with competently fighting troops, it’s also a big strain - but improvements I don’t see, so the “protective” minusers and CIPSO-shny rats - freedom for expression ...

      I have only one question for the author - Roman Skomorokhov, who gave us his analysis so pessimistically ... You, sir, in the army yourself, did you personally serve your beloved body with your body or what? I have not been able to get an answer to this question for the second year for sure, and maybe even the third. Therefore, I think that this analysis looks so beautiful, but it is based on data from the Internet and social networks, which are already history. There is hardly any information about what is actually happening in time in the present. The novel analyzes the past, he never has a present. Only isolated snippets. The author does not take into account the strategic plans of the Kremlin, but we cannot calculate them, well, in no way from the word at all, the state of the rear, the industrial boom ... etc. and yet the Combat Charter of the infantry is written in blood and sweat of soldiers and officers. Applications to it from under the heading of chipboard from Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Chechnya, Transnistria, Georgia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and now Ukraine. Immediately cook porridge from this hodgepodge will not work. Offensive and Defense have been spelled out there for a long time, how and what to do, with what forces, how to prepare, how to carry out, interact, how to fool the enemy on listening radio communications, jam it, suppress it, restore it. As I understand it, Roman, for example, never sat on the R-123 and about how to manage communications and the possibilities of even this radio station, he does not represent in principle, he was not taught. In addition to this Erka, we have a lot more. So, everything is painted here, like the ceiling in the temple of the Lord, but I have not seen the Almighty himself in any cathedral or church - solid mediators in cassocks and sparkling pictures. So sho, As Chekhov said, I don’t believe that everything is so bad, otherwise the counteroffensive of the ukrovermacht would have begun long ago and would have ended somewhere on the border. And they’ve been stuffing me for what month, it’s about to begin, but in fact it’s either the weather, or the tanks didn’t bring up, or they equipped it with nemae, or the guns are over, - sorry, but even the air around the shitty dancer interferes. It's just not the time for us to attack, there are other strategic considerations involved. And until the moment has come, everything is going according to plan as it should be for us - Russia. Otherwise, why the Pacific Fleet was alerted and China is moving its Navy towards Taiwan. This game is not as simple as it seems. and apparently this is how it was intended, and the main thing in it is not the occupation of territories as an ultimate or intermediate goal, but something completely different. And this is different, it is a hundred times more beneficial to us than advancing now on the left bank of the Dnieper. Otherwise, they would have mobilized long ago, created shock fists in the south and north, and would have cut this ugliness along the right bank of the Dnieper. So on the contrary, which was required to prove.

    In general, everything is correct, the article itself is a compilation of posts by Murza from the former 4th brigade of the NM LPR. There are dubious points - for example, that dill cannot afford equal losses. They really take meat assaults much less often - here our military leaders are ahead of the rest, but in general, the Americans do not care about the losses of local natives, the more they are killed, the better for them.
    In terms of the offensive, everything will look something like this - first, HIMARS attack air defense systems (in fact, this is already happening), then warehouses, headquarters, artillery positions, etc. with everything possible. then the brigades on Soviet weapons go on the attack (mobile groups are ahead), followed by them in developing the success of the brigade on Western weapons.
    To counteract, it is critically important for us to identify the moment of enemy deployment in time and attack the enemy with the help of army and front-line aviation. In fact, this is our only advantage. Well, mine everything and have mobile reserves.

        But didn’t it occur to you that in order to know the potential of opponents in real numbers on a theater of operations, you need to work simultaneously in the General Staff of both sides? And even if we assume the existence of such a subject with the level of knowledge of God, this person would not lay out this knowledge in an open forum.
        And it also didn’t occur to me that before commenting on something, you need to try to understand what you read? Where do you see that I "suggest the development of the conflict"? I am writing what an attempt at a Bandera offensive will look like (if there is one) and what is important to pay attention to when repelling it.
        I explain on my fingers - the assumption about the development of the conflict looks like this - Maidan Ukraine will go on the offensive and reach the coast of Crimea. Or so, they will go on the offensive, but we will defeat them and liberate Zaporozhye, well, etc.

      Everything is like last year, in the Kharkov region))) however, you forget how many Russian troops were there, and how many Lugansk militias with AK and that's it. No heavy weapons, no communication, no fortification. That's the whole secret of success. This year, in the Zaporozhye region, this number will not work. There is almost everything. That's why they don't go on the offensive - it's scary and there won't be a second chance. And yet, a clever thought from Khodakovsky: "anyone can sit in a trench, occasionally shooting towards the enemy. Far from everyone will be able to go on the attack under mortar and machine-gun fire. Just caught mobs, they definitely won't be able to."

        Not really, if their troops would have had the potential, as during the autumn offensive near Kharkov, you would be absolutely right, and you could be more or less calm.
        But now their potential is much higher, there were no brigades with Western weapons then. There were no long-range missiles, the number of kamikaze drones and Western self-propelled artillery was much lower. This is what causes concern.

        however, you forget how many Russian troops were there, and how many Luhansk militias with AK and that's it.

        There were enough Russian troops there, but unfortunately they became more famous for the already "legendary" run of the 1st tank army, leaving the enemy with a lot of equipment. Luhansk "mobiles" (not even from the personnel units) fought better. Some of our units also fought with dignity, but in general it is better not to remember Kharkov and most importantly not to repeat ....
        There, the main problem was that directly on the LBS there were huge holes where there were either no parts at all, or they were fictitious. What it was - stupidity or treason we will find out after the war ...

          With what fright did the potential become higher? About the Luhansk militias, I'm not talking about the fact that they are weaklings, but about the fact that they had nothing else besides AKs. And nobody prepared for defense. Block post - sandbags, opornik - a knee-deep trench, that's the result. In the Zaporizhzhya region, things are a little different now. The anti-tank ditch - from Novobogdanovsky crossing to Chernigovka, can be seen even from space.

        And if these mobiles turn out to be ideological, and it has long been known that people armed with ideas also fight better. As an example, the defeat of our Western and Reserve fronts, the divisions of the people's militia stood to the death and retreated with battles and did not surrender as personnel divisions of Lukin, who himself surrendered and chirped something else in captivity.

    hi
    The article is certainly interesting.
    R. Skomorokhov largely coincides in assessing the situation with "Bald from Brazzers" feel , in the sense of Colonel M Reisner, who in Austria at the military academy is responsible for military research. Who wants to - can find it on YouTube three months ago.
    But there are some points on which I would like to dwell.
    The fact that Ukrainians are given NATO equipment is not as scary as it seems. All the same, its quantity is limited, and superiority is not guaranteed.

    Let's take a look at the "Pentagon leak" what was planned there as of March.
    12 brigades (IMHO, consolidated into three corps) "for the offensive": "... the structure of each brigade, usually attached to one light tank battalion of about 30 tanks. Also, most of them include 90-100 IFV/APC/IMV like MRAPS or IFV equivalents, presumably spread over 2-3 mechanized battalions.
    There is also one attached artillery unit of 12-20 guns of various types in each brigade, whether ancient towed or self-propelled guns.
    ... The 9 brigades formed for the offensive consist of 253 tanks, 381 IFVs, 480 APCs and 147 artillery pieces. ... 3 more additional brigades trained by Ukraine; presumably armed with BMP-1 and 2, T-6, any remaining T-72s and remnants of artillery Gvozdik, D-30, M777, etc.
    "https://lostarmour.info/news/nato-plans-leaks (I generally disagree with the conclusions of the author of the article on Lostarmour, but that's not the point).
    And what is visible? More than a thousand armored vehicles, only in 9 brigades - could probably be described in other words than "Ukrainians are given NATO equipment - this is not as scary as it seems. It's still limited in quantity.".

    The number of tanks and other armored vehicles (with the exception of artillery) generally coincides with Zaluzhny's Wishlist (300 tanks, 600-700 BMP-BTRs).

    Moreover, the "conditional West" is not at all tired of "throwing firewood." So, for example, additional Tvards (2 battalions) are coming from Poland, Germany is planning 4 Leo1 battalions (IMHO, 124 vehicles, it is not clear whether Italy will still give Leo500 out of its 1, about a hundred are already being "raised" in Germany), Denmark - 100 Leo1 (about 3 battalions). In terms of BMP / BTR, only Poland from the new one will give 200 Rosomaks and 24 Cancer (something like Nona).

    Arta of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, sitting on a "starvation diet" plans to receive 1 million (1000000) shells in 155 mm caliber from Europe, plus the United States "borrows" 0,5 million (500000) shells from South Korea - and for whom, I wonder " borrows"?

    "Bald from Brazzers" feel , which Colonel M. Reisner stubbornly believes that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have 2 options: "to Kremennaya" (IMHO, this is still "to nowhere") and "to Melitopol."

    The Pentagon believes that Zaporozhye has the lowest density of Russian forces.
    The Pentagon also draws attention to the fact that the ground passability after spring for all types of equipment will be in early May.
    Sapienti sat, as they say.

    Today, Ukrainians don’t even have to strain themselves, training grounds are open for them all over Europe, where foreign instructors are happy to teach Ukrainians all the intricacies of modern combat. ... How many of you, the readers, have heard about this level of training from your acquaintances who were mobilized? The maximum preparation included shooting and throwing grenades. At least - shooting from a machine gun.
    Oddly enough, we have our own, like an Austrian "from Brazzers" hairless military man, who, under the nickname "Razvedos", pronounces R. Skomorokhov's theses about training in more detail. We independently search on YouTube: "reconnaissance mobilization in Russia."

    What to do with all this and how to be - I do not know.

      You write about the mobilized and their level of training, but I’m wondering if the approach to training for those drafted into the troops has changed? Are they taught with an eye on the CWO? And it’s also interesting whether one of those who served a fixed-term contract signs it?

        I do not write, R Skomorokhov writes briefly.
        IMHO, I hope that R Skomorokhov will write an article on these topics, because the issue is important and Skomorokhov has sources.

        I can only retell the "groans of Razvedos" and, in part, Murza.
        In most of the "groans" it is emphasized that enough BC is issued for combat training.
        Then the nuances begin:
        - who teaches and how. "Reconnaissance" considers himself a good "volunteer instructor" (plus he considers good training in "RUS"), and some other "volunteer instructors" are bad people, for example, Kochergin with a "stream shooting" and a certain subject calling "with 10 meters to go into the knives ":

        https://youtu.be/V0aVDQX8LTk

        https://youtu.be/vANF9giM2-s
        We kindly ask the admins not to rub these videos, due to "publicly significant information" feel

        - what is taught in terms of shooting. There is a certain set of mandatory exercises, everything is clear with them.
        Or you need to give an "extended version" starting from "bringing weapons to normal combat" (this is difficult) and then all these "tactical things": "switching a store with a strong-weak hand", "transferring fire", "eliminating delays", " shooting on the move", "strong-weak arm/right-left shoulder" and so on, up to "fighting in a trench/indoor"? Considering that the overwhelming amount of "defeating the enemy" is inflicted by artillery?

        The next question is, is it necessary to teach other weapons besides AK? PC, grenade launchers, grenade launchers, grenades, etc? All this is difficult, it requires shooting ranges, BC, instructors, time. And yes, it's about safety...

        The next question is, is it necessary to put / allow to put optics (collimators, heatpacks, optical sights) and "user tuning" on weapons, from seats for the same optics to butts, high-capacity magazines and other "body kit"? This is sometimes VERY expensive and will everyone be able to do it, is there any harm to the state. property?

        Further questions regarding training in terms of "medicine", "engineering training", "training of units, including commanders", etc.

        In general, the hope is for R Skomorokhov that he will write articles on these topics.

        My IMHO is described by the words "you need to do it."
        Who can - let him train as much as he can, it won't hurt.

        According to Murz, the importance of small arms combat in the NWO zone is increasing, for certain reasons.
        Those who wish can independently find even on YouTube a video on the topic "fight in the trench" / "shooting battle" and, so to speak, independently realize the importance of training infantry and tuning weapons.
        As the wise Romans said - "amat victoria kuram".

        IMHO, of course, but Skomorokhov does not have such a "radical view" as Murza has in his "extreme" voluminous work.

        IMHO, Skomorokhov is more right. M. Reisner also draws attention to the fact that the resources of the parties should be taken into account, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not so rosy with this. Yes, and there is an opinion thatit should always be remembered that if the Nazis were really doing so well, Murzik himself would not have been alive for many years."

          There's nothing complicated here.
          1. Ukraine has a better army - it was like that a year ago, it is many times more noticeable now. Accordingly, superiority in intelligence and control can be realized.
          2. The political leadership of the Russian Federation has a well-known reputation, so there is some possibility that bazaared, and we see the preparation of a technical drain of a crossed out transition to positions more advantageous for defense. The most beneficial for defense, of course, are positions that Ukraine will not attack. For example, the line on February 24th.

          But
          3. If the Russian Federation has sovereignty (in the sense that it has already raked all the sanctions that the partners could come up with) and can now do anything, then Ukraine is fighting by proxy, so to speak, and has numerous risks and restrictions associated with this. In particular, difficult decisions cost nothing to Russia, but a serious military failure by Ukraine could lead to the destruction of the political consensus and some other peace initiatives some Macron. This risk asymmetry inspires the Russian side with its trademark optimism.

            Points 1 and 2 are, to put it mildly, incredible.

            To put it mildly, on this forum, one user in polemical fervor constantly scolds the Nazis and their army, saying, "Since 2014, everyone has been preparing and so start February 2022! At the capital! Shame on the Nazis!" - it seems so, close to the text. I would also add that with a "higher quality army" it is impossible to deal with Molotov cocktails and the distribution of grenade launchers with machine guns directly from trucks, "without a passport and a certificate from a fool."

            To put it mildly, citizen Zelensky forbade himself a long time ago to “debunk” with the Russian Federation (and he never knew how) and has already painted for himself both the “borders of 1991” and reparations and something else interesting there, like international courts and universal repentance. Does it make sense under such initial conditions to "rebark"?

            Point 3 in the part of Ukraine is certainly curious.
            "Anesthesiologist of all Ukraine" Arestovich is now on "free bread" and he broadcasts that Zelensky was offered almost "non-bloc status in exchange for peace." "And all?!" - an inquisitive reader and listener of Arestovich on the right bank of the Dnieper could ask. But it is customary to ask such questions in countries with unpredictable election results during elections, while in Ukraine this time has not yet come.
            By the way, an inquisitive Ukrainian may be puzzled by the question "well, how much more, they promised to wait a little bit" - but Arestovich is already "out of business", who to ask? And who - and most importantly "what and when" - will now promise Ukrainians, for example, in the elections of 2024?
            So "trademark optimism" is waiting for 2024, in which, by a strange coincidence, apart from Ukraine, there will be important elections in two more countries. Again, Macron has a deadline, we are waiting for peace initiatives, he will behave well - the place of the "conditional Schroeder" is free.

            But
            But at the end of summer 2023-autumn 2023, when the results of the summer are "available" and budgets for the next year begin to be drawn up, then it will be clear what it will be, 2024.

              Quite possible. Moreover, it is a Nazi tradition. The fact that the Wehrmacht until the end remained the best land army in the world in terms of quality did not cancel the distribution of faustpatrons to the Hitler Youth.

              And, more importantly, it did not guarantee the victory of the Nazis.

              You don't seem to understand the thesis. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are two Soviet armies. One stolen, the second stolen outright. However, over "these 8 years" at the level of a company-battalion, the Armed Forces of Ukraine began to appear hints of a modern army. The conditional Wagner (before convicts) or Ghost in the Armed Forces of Ukraine was, taking from the bulldozer, in every second brigade. At a higher level, everything remained rather sad. At the level of the commander-in-chief, it is quite sad.

              For the last six months, we have been promised to show the modern army already at the level of several brigades as a whole. If it works out, it will be a huge success, in just a year. (Where were you 8 years old, von Sekty tattered?). It may not work, there are no guarantees. But if it works out, then further demilitarization can go on at the level of divisions, and then the American devil is not joking - maybe a corps will appear.

              And when I say "corps", I don't mean the People's Militia Corps, but the 7th.

      I know. I read another German - Eberhard Zorn, who was recently kicked out of the post of commander of the Bundeswehr))) and so he writes that 1. NATO equipment will be effective with appropriate training of personnel. 5 - 6 weeks of express training is not preparation. 2. NATO equipment - will be effective, with NATO offensive tactics, that is, the enemy's defense is suppressed by artillery and aircraft. Where did you see aviation?))) and finally, the funniest thing is that you consider MRAP to be on a par with infantry fighting vehicles / armored personnel carriers, although this is not at all the case. This is not a weapon of the battlefield, this is to drive barmaley, somewhere in the savannah. But with the BMP / BTR, the Banderlogs are very sad. About the leopard - 1, I generally keep quiet. It is beneficial for Rheinmetal and others to cash in their scrap metal for money, but it is not clear where the benefit of the banderlogs is.

        hi
        Can you link to Zorn's articles? I would like to read.

        IMHO, but the issues of the effectiveness of training and supply should not be assessed in the context of "bad - good - ideal according to NATO standards", but "sufficient or not for the goals."

        In terms of Leo1, aviation, MRAPs, etc., I almost completely agree with you (but MRAP is not only "driving barmaley, somewhere in the savanna", and Leo1 can be an unpleasant "neighbor", for example), but again the question is "is it enough or not for the purposes."

          Unfortunately I didn't save the link. I read on some German site, a large article devoted to the events of the summer - autumn of last year in the Kharkiv and Kherson regions, well, and generalizations. A lot of criticism, apparently for this and "turnuli". Speaking of MRAPs, this is also from him. Armored vehicles will not be able to replace the BMP / BTR, under any circumstances. Uncle writes - "this is an illusion of strength, but not strength." About "Leo - 1" he also speaks not very well, apparently he knows what is not written in official press releases.

            If so, it’s a pity, of course, that Zorn was removed. He would have drunk a lot of blood with his whining to the NATO people. But the speed of cleaning, by the way, is impressive.

            "Leo - 1" he also does not respond very well, apparently he knows what is not written in official press releases.
            Leo1, like a tank without normal anti-shell armor, even looked strange in the 80s. Now, against the backdrop of the latest modifications of the T72, it looks even more strange.
            But "there is fish for fishlessness and cancer", so Leo1 will get the role of a self-propelled gun, which everything except the tank can hit in any projection, the tank with the T72 does not take it in the forehead. Well, Leo1 will "aggress" everything on himself, against him, as against an "adult" tank, you need anti-tank mines, ATGMs and 125 mm from the tank ...

            Speaking of MRAPs, this is also from him. Armored vehicles will not be able to replace the BMP / BTR, under any circumstances. Uncle writes - "this is an illusion of strength, but not strength."
            Good now burghers went, they just turned Zorn. I would have lowered it to the captain, to Captain Evidence.
            A professional military man has no right to whine about "illusions" in non-peaceful times. In peacetime, he must yell what he needs, and in non-peaceful time, he must prepare the available equipment and personnel for the performance of tasks, as well as a hedgehog to perform these tasks. These are his, military, rights and obligations attached to early retirement, various types of allowances and beautiful uniforms.
            MCIs are obviously worse than infantry fighting vehicles / armored personnel carriers, at least in that the patency is worse. But for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, MRAP is better than on foot or in a "pickup truck from volunteers." And then the nuances begin: it is safer to ride in a MCI than in an infantry fighting vehicle / armored personnel carrier; the chances of surviving when hit / blown up are sometimes greater, since tanks and ammo will not cause harm. Sometimes it's faster to ride a MCI. And not every machine gun takes it, you need to take trunks from 12,7 mm and above.

              Why "sometimes"? As a vehicle, the MRAP is by itself safer than the Soviet armored personnel carriers, BMDs and BMP-1/2s. In the second case, obviously not everyone will survive a collision with an anti-tank mine or a buried IED from a 152mm land mine - and MCI provides such a guarantee.

              In the first line, he has nothing to do, but in the first line and MTLB there is nothing to do - however, we have what we have.

                In theory, of course, MCI looks safer.
                But as you rightly noted, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine "He has nothing to do in the first line, but there is nothing to do in the first line and MTLB - but we have what we have."
                And here, when "we have what we have" - ​​as in a good joke, "nuances" begin. It is not always possible to "get there" on wheels, or rather, not always and not everywhere from September to May. As it was indicated for the MCI Dingo - "for patrolling on a flat, dry surface."

                It’s not always possible to “get there” also because on the way, in addition to IEDs, small such BMD / BMPs with a 30 mm cannon can be encountered (there is a video of such a meeting between BMD and M113; or the “musician” with Kord will stop the trip on the VAB). And the MRAP does not always even have a machine gun, and if it does, then the main aiming tool "AiBall Mark1" does not always give the required accuracy.

                But in general, for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which, as you rightly noted, lives with "Ukraine's reliance on foreign resources gives many advantages" MCIs in the role of infantry fighting vehicles / armored personnel carriers are still a way out.
                Why are there MCIs, Armed Forces of Ukraine, even armored Hammers in the role of armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles are used, the legendary video with shouts of "Intensification, go, .... go there. bash, stupid person, female dog, woman with reduced social responsibility" is about this.

                  There are no nuances here.
                  On the front line with tanks there should be infantry fighting vehicles - for example, SV90. On the front line without tanks there should be an armored personnel carrier - M113 or Stryker. MCI should not be on the first line.

                  If MRAPs appear on the first line, along with the Hummers, we get, at best, raids of motorized Cossacks, at worst, burnt columns. Therefore, the conversation "BMP-1 or MRAP" is meaningless. Every vegetable has its time.

                    with tanks there should be infantry fighting vehicles - for example SV90. On the front line without tanks there should be an armored personnel carrier - M113 or Stryker
                    In theory, probably yes. It is desirable to maintain a "single level of mobility".
                    In practice, judging by the "Pentagon leaks", the Armed Forces of Ukraine are still trying to balance "fire and maneuver" in the brigades: 99 Bradleys will be with 28 T55s, 90 Strikers with 14 Challengers, 90 M113s with 28 T72s.

                        There are no more Hindenburgs (crossed out) armored personnel carriers / infantry fighting vehicles for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and there are still MCIs from the GVOT.

                        Seriously, IMHO, the distribution among the brigades is not entirely rational, Bradley will still be "scattered" among the brigades battalion-by-battalion. Although, perhaps, to facilitate logistics, the equipment is reduced to "brigade kits".

                        PS. It seems that "probing" has begun in the South, Firebomber writes about BT in the Ugledar region. In other places "along Kamenskoye" it is still quiet.

    An article by an author who has a lot of information, general and different, but there are significant problems with "getting into reality". With all the shortcomings / advantages of the Russian army, with all its persistent sores, the main reason for the retreat of the Russian Federation from Kherson, from near Kiev and from the Kharkov region is not everything listed by the author, but elementary breaks in the combat formations of our troops, their lack of saturation quantitatively. The available resources at the moment are enough to catch the APU with a strike on the counter. But that's not fun. The tone of the article itself is interesting, a year has passed and many self-made "analysts". having lost faith in the capabilities of the Russian Federation, they slid to the other extreme - extreme respect for the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The fighting in Artemovsk is perceived by such people as the inability of the Wagner and the Ministry of Defense to build offensive operations. But it’s obvious even to the laymen, Artemovsk is a sharpening, stuck under the rib of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Her task is to bleed the Ukrainian army, to do it on an ongoing basis.

    We beat the tanks in Kiev, so we are still raking. The Ukrainians are counting on the advantage in tanks. Everything else is much worse for them.

    The US is advancing according to its own scheme.
    1. First, headquarters, communications and supplies are knocked out. If we take the realities of the Kherson steppe, then I'm more worried about problems with the supply of water.
    You won't be able to survive without water for more than three days.
    So the only hope is that the wise leadership has stocked up in advance.
    2. They will not storm the lines.
    In small groups they will find a place weakly blocked by observation and fire, and a mobile reconnaissance group with an artillery spotter will go there.
    The pyramids, from which the eyes stick out, for which they were unloaded, will be dragged away by light armored vehicles at a time.
    3. Mobile groups will go forward, and artillery will be directed at the identified pockets of resistance. Aviation will be replaced by drones. Therefore, it is better for ours to sit under the nets for the first hours.

    How ready our brilliant strategists are for such an obvious scenario, we will see in the near future.

    2. Breakthrough of the enemy's defense. Strikes from everything that is possible on enemy positions and rear facilities and the offensive itself.

    Not just strikes, but precise strikes against headquarters, although they were dragged away, at communication centers and, of course, at the locations of personnel. Remember Manstein's operation "Hunting for bustards" to defeat our Crimean Front, which had superiority in forces and means, except for aviation. Recall the conclusions of the GK Headquarters for the reasons for the defeat.

    The main reason for the failure of the Kerch operation is that the front command ....
    discovered a complete misunderstanding of the nature of modern warfare, which is expressed in the following facts...
    open, flat terrain, as was the case on the Kerch Peninsula, requires all commanders to build their battle formations in depth, to allocate strong reserves in depth ...
    The experience of the war further shows that organized and firm command and control of troops in battle plays a decisive role and that the loss of communication between the command and the troops has a disastrous effect on the outcome of a combat operation...
    Front and Army Command for a long time did not change its command posts, as a result of which the enemy, knowing the location of these points, bombed these points with the very first air raid, disrupted wire communications at the command posts of the headquarters of the front and armies and upset the communication centers, and the radio communications, due to the criminal negligence of the headquarters of the front, ended up in a corral. The army headquarters turned out to be unprepared for the use of other means of communication.


    I'm afraid this story will repeat itself ... As far as I know, many units are well settled in their deployment points and, of course, do not change them, and this is fraught with ...

      The author reports that he is from Voronezh. He does not have to go far to figure out where to find modern communications and control. Only a unified system of communications and control, embracing heterogeneous forces, by no means individual radio stations, can work effectively. All this was proposed and developed long ago in Voronezh (ESU TZ). Despite the usual problems of misunderstanding on the part of the Ministry of Defense and the struggle for money of various departments and groups of influence. It remains only to find where everything went to the right moment of application.
      Separately, there is the problem of the lack of modern space communications. But nothing can be done here, because. all resources were thrown into skating actresses into space.

    And in a year and a half it will be, as in Germany in forty-five - they will drive Zelya to slaughter youngsters and old people, only instead of faustpatrons they will have javelins.
    Yes, already now seventeen-year-old boys are not allowed to go abroad in fact from Ukraine.

    The main feature of VSU is small sabotage and terrorist groups that infiltrate and cause local damage as instructors from the Pentagon teach them. Here is the main specifics of the All-Pentagon. The Pentagon itself, when attacking foreign countries, mainly operates bomber aircraft. In the first case, they are afraid to use small bomber aircraft, since various types of Russian air defense are even ahead of the development of the United States and NATO countries. In the second case, foreign countries attacked by the Pentagon do not have proper air defense, which makes the seizure of territories easy prey. The only drawback that I see in the Russian army is the democratic nature of the offensive, as they are afraid to harm civilians, and this is a serious drawback. Otherwise, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are technically and technologically ahead of the NATO countries as a whole and can fight on three fronts. This refers to the potential enemy Japan and Türkiye. Why Türkiye? Yes, because Turkey, with all its "friendly" sentiments towards Russia, is still a NATO country and then Turkey hatches its plans, it is cunning and insidious.

    All power to the Soviets!

    Quote: R. Skomorokhov
    I read here in our z-patriots... their front line is at home, at the keyboard... and I realized how sad everything is.

    First thought, then action. As we think, so we act..

    You, an employee of the ideological front, do not understand the role of the word? Don't you know what you're doing?

    "... There are words - like wounds, words - like a court, -
    They do not surrender with them and are not taken prisoner.

    In a word you can kill, in a word you can save,
    In a word, you can lead the shelves behind you.

    In a word, you can sell, and betray, and buy,
    The word can be poured into smashing lead.

    But the words to all the words in our language are:
    Glory, Motherland, Loyalty, Freedom and Honor..."

    ------------ Vadim Shefner "Words" -----------

    Write the text of this poem over your desktop and every time before you press the keys, read it.

    "Cannons are the last argument of kings".

    The power priority of managing humanity is the last "on the list" when the war is lost on higher priorities.



    A hybrid war is a war on all six control priorities that never ends. It only moves from one phase to another. From cold to hot. From ordinary to informational.

    Remember - in the beginning was the word. The fight begins with the words: "Uncle let me smoke" ...

    If you do not like what the z-patriots write, then this is your flaw ...

    Now the main thing in any successful offensive is aviation. And so far no one has convinced me otherwise. Yes, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have few aircraft, but they were supplied with a large number of UAVs. I looked at various sources here and the maximum of UAVs destroyed by us is about 3700 pieces. And about 10 different types of UAVs have already been delivered to Ukraine. Plus their "Swifts" is unknown how many. Therefore, I am also worried about the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Moreover, our commanders have not delivered blows to the rear for a long time and calmly allow NATO weapons to be delivered to the front line. And our commanders are not going to attack until they beat off the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Which will prove with a bunch of details that a 20 millionth Nenka without aviation, economy, its military equipment will fight for centuries against a 140 millionth Russia with thousands of combat aircraft and helicopters. And then he will take Sakhalin. Against Russia, with all kinds of missiles, the world's largest fleet of tanks and the world's largest tank building industry. It is necessary to manage to prove it, but analysts stubbornly prove it. Even uncomfortable to read it all. About some kind of mega-speed of ukrov, many times higher than ours (why? If the author, let's say, is slow, then why does he consider others?). Of course, Ukraine is radically weaker than Russia, at least by an order of magnitude. Including with the current level of Western aid. Of course, Russia is still using a few percent of its forces. Of course, as I already wrote here, all this resistance of the non-brothers will end with 1-1,5 million dead on their part and the vileness of the Bandera state.

Which will prove with a bunch of details that a 20 millionth Nenka without aviation, economy, its military equipment will fight for centuries against a 140 millionth Russia with thousands of combat aircraft and helicopters. And then he will take Sakhalin. Against Russia, with all kinds of missiles, the world's largest fleet of tanks and the world's largest tank building industry. It is necessary to manage to prove it, but analysts stubbornly prove it. Even uncomfortable to read it all. About some kind of mega-speed of ukrov, many times higher than ours (why? If the author, let's say, is slow, then why does he consider others?). Of course, Ukraine is radically weaker than Russia, at least by an order of magnitude. Including with the current level of Western aid. Of course, Russia is still using a few percent of its forces. Of course, as I already wrote here, all this resistance of the non-brothers will end with 1-1,5 million dead on their part and the vileness of the Bandera state.

    For our connection, or rather its complete absence, I would single out gentlemen Shoigu Manturov and Rogozin in hell with a separate cauldron am bigger and hotter.

    Well, the existence of hell is not proven by objective evidence. And in Russia nothing threatens them, they are PERSONALLY pleasant little men to the Kremlin. And PERSONAL pleasing today is the main thing. No one looks at competence and professionalism, the main thing is that he is personally devoted.
    Therefore, these characters sleep peacefully.
    The only time things can change is if there is a threat to the PERSONAL security of a famous person. If this person gets baked, something unpleasant looms, then the flywheel will turn. "I won't leave alone, I'll drag everyone away." Heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, falling out of the windows of skyscrapers, premium pistols with one cartridge will begin. For the emergence of a threat to PERSONAL security, revenge will be merciless. They won't spare Medvedchuk's godfather either. For example, they will find him like Benya Bereza hanging from a scarf on the crossbar of a bathroom curtain. Like, if you lied and got into your lies, then get it, since the supreme person is hot.

    Well, the fact that they got into trouble with the SVO in full is already obvious to everyone, except for the stoned brats who continue to cuckoo about the "cunning plan" and about "we haven't started yet." The more painful will be their disappointment.
    And the fact that they are now stupidly drawn into positional meat grinders is also understandable.
    The question is different. I have already noted that it is impossible to expect anything else from an army that has been told for 20 years that it will be “compact, contractual, well-armed”, that breakthroughs in defense by regiments, divisions, corps are a “despicable scoop”, that it will fight “come, they saw, they conquered," they galloped off in another place to come, see, conquer. That there will be no more lines of combat contact, but there will be some "international terrorists" whom the "compact contract army" will defeat with its technical superiority. That no war with the mass army of the enemy is expected, this is all in the past. That a "compact contract army" will drive a conscription, mass army with dirty towels. And in the course of the SVO, they encountered that the draft army could pile on the contract army, that the brigades of the mobilized did not scatter at the sight of the notorious BTG, but fought stubbornly and evilly. That even a gnawed air defense is capable of landing a meager number of aircraft, which was going to defeat everyone due to the lack of analogues.
    And the breaking of consciousness just can not be done. It took the Red Army more than a year to realize that it was necessary to defeat the Wehrmacht in a different way, and to learn how to carry out victorious offensives. From the straightforward pushing of the Germans in the offensive in the winter of 1941-1942, to the maneuvering attacks on the encirclement in the winter of 1942-1943 near Stalingrad, on the Upper and Middle Don.
    But then there was the political will of the top leadership, which set everyone up for victory. And today we see what we don't know. The troops are fighting, and hysterical calls to the West are coming from Moscow: “we are open for negotiations”, “we will not change the Zelensky regime”, i.e. they beg for an agreement - Minsk 3 or Istanbul-1, ready for any, the most obscene reconciliation. If only to return everything back, so that the cubs and mistresses of the elite could freely shop around Europe.

    Without at all denying the participation of the aforementioned "gentlemen" in the problems of the Russian army, let me remind you of the story: the Red Army before the war (WWII) significantly outnumbered the Wehrmacht in tanks and aviation. Quantitatively, and in tanks also qualitatively. At the same time, it was also significantly inferior in communications (both quantitatively and qualitatively), and most importantly, lagged behind in operational management, training of troops, and intelligence.

    Lend-Lease helped out, and captured telephone wires were wound up, but they did not manage to make good reliable radios, not to mention the radars that the Germans and allies even put on planes at the end of the war.

    The Germans, on the contrary, Panthers were all radio-equipped, but the order forbade the use of walkie-talkies on the Western Front - they were immediately taken bearings and planes or artillery salvos of the allies flew in. Reminds me of nothing...

    Therefore, a bad connection is still a sad Soviet tradition. The calculation, apparently, was that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are still worse, because it is also a former Soviet republic, and with a smaller military budget. And they took and made Nettle, and Elon Musk gave them Starlink (one without the other would not be so effective).

    Lagging behind in electronics, not having our own production of chips, how could we make modern reliable communication?! This is the root of the problem, that the industry was not built, and not that the "gentlemen" forgot to order good communications.

      War is a continuation of politics, only by other means.
      Those who stand behind the Ukrainians are not interested in either the victory of Russia or the victory of Ukraine. They want the “war of attrition” to continue as long as possible, grinding up as many resources as possible not only of Russia, but also of Ukraine. Therefore, Ukraine is given just enough to “hold on.” No more. Well, and ensuring that everything valuable that still remained in Ukraine was destroyed, including the population.

    Again, the author is talking about armchair patriots. It’s good that the author, like all of us Russian citizens, worries about our soldiers and commanders fighting in Ukraine. But why write so meaningfully in the postscript it will be shorter. Raisin two. During the time of Izyum-1, the main task was to hold a referendum about the entry of the republics into Russia, which was carried out brilliantly. But again they wanted to do the best, as always, an unexpected offensive of the Armed Forces began in the Kharkov region, for which our troops stationed there were not quite ready. Military correspondents made a noise and uproar The leadership of the country and the armed forces took adequate measures. Yes, with the surrender of Kherson and Izyum, our side suffered great reputational and image losses, like the Russians don’t abandon their own. But we survived. You don’t understand that the main front of the struggle now lies in the economic and political plane, we are at war with all of Europe and its military power. Who and when of the states was in such a situation, and no one ever. Yes, the war highlighted many pain points in the organization, technical and material support of our armed forces and other law enforcement agencies. But here, too, purposeful work is being carried out. There should be no doubt that victory will be ours, our cause is just and we will win. Less whining and more truthful and real articles without criticism, I repeat, not criticism, but criticism of articles.

    The other day I explained the same thing to one comrade, he called me an alarmist, and when I asked why we left Kherson and Zaporozhye, he answered that this was a tactic, to lure and destroy, and that we have the smartest strategists at our headquarters and they know what they are doing . I didn’t argue with the stubborn guy, but I felt sorry for those guys who wouldn’t return home. I went to Leroy Merlin and needed to buy a paint knife, looked and saw a lot of goods made in Kiev, hand tools, construction markers, and I understood only one thing: someone is making money in this war, and simple fooled new Banderaites are crumbling and crumbling others , and ours too, because oil, gas, metals go there, and people die, their tanks are filled with our fuel, and they kill ours, and someone shovels, some kind of absurdity...

    After reading it, you get the feeling that the author is deliberately exaggerating the problems according to the principle that it’s easy—it’s better to be too safe than sorry.
    Because the author’s layout does not correspond to the real situation from the front. In fact, all the described advantages allow the enemy, at best, to restrain the advance of Russian troops. In fact, there was only one successful offensive - in the Kharkov direction, but there the reason for its success was primarily the gross mistakes of our command. The exit from Kherson was dictated by the difficulty of holding it in the face of problems with logistics and, in fact, it was also clearing up the mistakes of the first stage, when they tried to bite off what they could not hold.
    The main successes of the Ukrainian side are the successful defense of fortified areas, which became possible precisely thanks to the advantages in communications, reconnaissance and management efficiency. But this will not win the war.
    Russia is now in a winning position. She can end the war on current lines and consider it a victory. All the Russian Federation needs is to prevent the success of the Ukrainian offensive.
    But Ukraine needs to inflict a heavy defeat on the Russian army, and more severe than it was under the raisins. And here I don’t know how possible this is. Let's see.

      Very correct. We need to be optimistic.
      I can only add
      - there was no referendum in the Kharkov region, well, they depicted something there. Therefore, it was politically important to hold a referendum in 4 full-fledged regions (with reservations for the DPR and Zaporozhye region) and therefore from a political point of view. they simply exchanged the referendum for these areas. Yes, it is unpleasant and cruel, but you cannot be strong always and everywhere. Our military failure is a complete solution to a related political problem. We concentrated on referendums and missed out on Izyum and Kupyansk. But not a single serious provocation.

      Kherson (right bank!) is included in the Constitution. Will this same issue need to be resolved at peace negotiations? Captured-held-annexed-left after fixing the annexation. Well, live next to a nuclear power that has territorial claims. The most important thing is that we still have a reserve of at least a year for the economy, and after Xi’s arrival it is generally unlimited in duration. But Ukraine is turning into Syria, Iraq, Yemen with an eternal war. Of course, people live there, but the economy is local and the standard of living is so-so, frankly speaking. Ukraine can always be “donated” with money and weapons, but what will change? This makes sense only with further escalation - the introduction of NATO forces or some proxies from them, escalation with the Russian Federation in the north, etc. Those. regime change and destruction of the current government. Will they pull? Will they even want to? Did you want it before?
