Military correspondents published a photo of an American M2 Bradley armored vehicle bogged down in Ukrainian mud

Western-made armored vehicles are increasingly faced with unpleasant features of dirt roads in Ukraine and in the territories of Donbass occupied by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. One of these shots was published in the Telegram channel "Operation Z: Russian Spring military commissars".

In the photo we see an American-made M2 ​​Bradley infantry fighting vehicle. Her starboard side was heavily bogged down in impassable mud. Behind is another car, which, apparently, now cannot pass or is also bogged down.



Such cases are not uncommon. Advertised Western military equipment can not cope with the mudslide in Ukraine. What kind of counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this case can be discussed is not very clear. This is also why the Ukrainian command is forced to postpone the announced counteroffensive - heavy equipment simply will not be able to move forward.


Recall that the BMP M2 Bradley was created in the second half of the seventies of the twentieth century to gradually replace the M113 armored personnel carriers in the American army. The crew of the combat vehicle consists of three people, and six shooters can also be transported in the troop compartment.

In 1981, the BMP entered service with the American army and was used by the United States in almost all armed conflicts in which Washington took part in the late XNUMXth and early XNUMXst centuries.

After the start of a special military operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine, the United States began deliveries of infantry fighting vehicles of this type to Ukrainian formations. Kiev strongly counts on such military equipment, however, as recent events on the line of contact show, American armored vehicles do not help out the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine much.

    You are not a sticky couple of three pieces to us, but show hundreds, or even thousands of photos of the skeletons of the burnt ones. I will be just happy!

        The article is complete rubbish. When there is nothing to write and not in the subject, it is better to remain silent. Especially bothering with fake photos is ..........

          Specific ground pressure for Bradley 0,65 kg/cm2 for BMP-2 0,7 Kg/cm2 for MTLB 0.45 kg/cm2
          Those. Bradley is better than BMPs but worse than motorcycle leagues.

            Those. Bradley is better than BMPs but worse than motorcycle leagues.

            Ground pressure:
            Bradley, kg/cm²: 0,55 (M2, M2A1); 0,65 (M2A2); 0,66 (M2A3);
            BMP-2 from performance characteristics, kg / cm²: 0,64 - 0,66.

            what As you know, the task to develop a replacement for the M113 was based on the study of our BMP-1 and BMP-2.

      Correctly, military correspondents are called "military whore" ... How about sculpting fakes ?! No, damn it, NADA!
      They managed themselves, but they smeared the whole of Russia with a gome. Now they will start yelling about the fact that Russia is acting cooler than CIPSO

        They are especially "amusing" when you find where you got on the other side. I try not to comment on this, only if there is confirmation from that side. There is such a site, Beloved Kramotorsk, the admin also jokes about us. no regrets. I advise you to look sometimes.

      Unfortunately, VO has long turned into a yellow newspaper on a near-war topic. There was little news from the front, but you want to keep the audience, so fakes are riveted.

    Pictured is Baakuba, Iraq, May 2006. That is, the photos are exactly 17 years old. Here is the screenshot.

    The cross was drawn in Photoshop.
    Site's "remakes" have outdone themselves this time.

    Why are they posting this here?
    Why is there no ban on the topic starter for this, at least for a month?

    So soon, since they show that they cannot pass.
    Since February, they have been repeating today and tomorrow, but now, like the roads have not yet dried out.
    They're trying to confuse.
    I think by May 9 they will hit, like we are at the parade and we have no time.

      These are the photos

      Unfortunately, such photos are also stinky. Photographers did not approach the front lines particularly close, but this tank had been standing for a long time, it had already been gutted by the trophy team. And for the photo, at the request of the photographer, they set it on fire.
      And here is the full photo, only our canvas boots ...

      Still, VO is not a propaganda site, but objective coverage and discussion of issues related to the army, weapons, the course of hostilities then and now. And leave caps thrown into the air outside the site.

    Let's suck the news out of each photo, the amount of content will increase dramatically. And given that it turned out to be a photo-toad, this content is already similar to the work of a pack of yeast in a village toilet. And how is this missed, but normal articles are cut?

    They thought Western technology would fly through the mud. Well, it means that Bradley will not pass through the mud, and there are not many roads left in Ukraine. Fields in Ukraine in funnels from explosions, if water gets there, then you can’t usually leave the puddle. M113 go and all destroyed.

    I fully support. The resource got worse. And the question already stands like this - either the administration will do something to improve the quality of the articles or people will migrate to other sites.

    Is Ukraine so dirty that it even sucks in allies?
    The humor is, of course.
    If there, in the Ukrainian black soil, swamps and mud, all foreign weapons were flooded and covered with shit - that would be kind!
