British intelligence reported the creation of a powerful defense system with extensive minefields around Tokmak

The chances of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to fulfill the task set by the United States and take Tokmak are becoming less and less every day; Russia is creating new lines of defense with extensive minefields. The General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces received such data from British intelligence.

The Ukrainian army, which has been advancing for four months, still has not overcome the first line of Russian defense, having only managed to reach it in the Rabotino-Verbovoye area. For some reason, in Kyiv they are confident that having broken through the first line, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will be able to freely advance almost to the Sea of ​​Azov, at least to Tokmak for sure. But this is not so, between the city and the first line of defense there are two more, and the Russian army continues to strengthen.



According to British intelligence, a three-tier defense system with underground tiers and extensive minefields has been created around Tokmak. It is alleged that Russian troops drew conclusions from the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, increasing the depth of minefields from 500 meters to 2-3 km in the main directions of possible attacks. Moreover, now anti-tank minefields are also “seeded” with anti-personnel mines, which should prevent Ukrainian sappers from manually making passages in them, and various equipment is easily destroyed by artillery and aviation, which was proven near Orekhovo.

The Russian army began to massively use anti-personnel mines to prevent the Ukrainian Armed Forces from using new tactics when infantry squads are sent forward to clear routes

- says the report.

Previously, Ukrainian resources reported that the United States gave Kyiv until November of this year to take Tokmak by any means in order to maintain the volume of military assistance. Otherwise, Washington will begin to leak Zelensky and his plans.

            Yes, but still, no one has canceled the cleansing of enemy forces by landing forces.

        Engineering troops have once again proved

        The strength of any army is determined largely by how optimally it is balanced. Unfortunately, until recently Russia has neglected the development of communications, modern reconnaissance means in the depths of enemy defenses, precision-guided munitions and unmanned aircraft. At the beginning, the North Military District was skeptical about Ukraine’s ability to lose 1000 drones a year, but now the Armed Forces of Ukraine can safely lose about 50 drones a day.

          There are different types of UAVs. From tens of grams to more than a dozen tons.

          for which UAVs? for FPV? somehow the Bayraktars and Orions/Pacers didn’t show themselves at all, no matter how, without suppressing air defense they are just expensive toys, as it turned out, and as it turned out, suppressing air defense is also not an easy task

          What kind of future does the Aerospace Forces have? They handed out man-portable air defense systems to the shaggy natives and that’s it, no one flies anywhere. And a couple of serious air defense systems in a forest plantation and aerospace forces won’t even get close to the front line. Glide bombs are also useless, they are dropped 70 km from the front line, but the S400 standing on the other side of the front at 300 km will not allow them to approach the 70 km mark on their side. And they have analogues of the S400. Airplanes are too expensive, we need drones from light to heavy stealth so that air defense does not detect

        The most important thing is command and control of troops and the effective use of the entire arsenal of weapons.

          About the future beyond... the above, this is not for me.
          As for me, the most effective approach is COMPREHENSIVE!
          Over time, the content of this complex will change, and even then it will most likely be filled with new things, not excluding everything that is used now. This is for a long time... most of us will not wait until fundamental changes begin to occur in what will constitute the complex.
          All in good time.

      The distance from Rabotino to Tokmak is, in principle, small - 30 km... But they still need to overcome all this somehow.

        Statistics. When the AFU advances 1 km to the Sea of ​​Azov, the losses on the entire front are approximately 6000 irrecoverable 200th and 300th AFU.
        To take Tokmak they need to put in about 180 more, and for this they need to carry out a total mobilization, at least somehow prepare the mobs for spring. Until spring, the VFU's losses will amount to no less than 000. They will not take Tokmak in any way. There is not enough meat in reserves.

      Chances of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to fulfill the task set by the United States and take Tokmok

      Somehow I didn’t catch the moment when the goals of the spring Ukrainian offensive changed. Because just three months ago they said that the Ukrainian Army’s task was to take Melitopol and Mariupol in two or three weeks, and then reach the Sea of ​​Azov and Perekop.

      Is this a message that our people intercepted? Or a press release?
      Ours intercepted it, and due to lack of intelligence, immediately sent it to the VO editorial office? I do not believe!!!
      Press release? I believe. If the newspapers write that you need to urgently take out a mortgage, then it’s better not to do it.

      This is far from certain, but it may well be, depending on the type of terrain.
      So, when mining, they never hesitated to carefully place gifts for enemy sappers.

      The Queen of the Fields and the God of War is the basis in all wars and even in our electronic and digital time.
      Perhaps this is so, in fact, in a trench-positional war, but in a dynamic, mobile one - there is great doubt, although it does not exclude high-precision and long-range artillery... Only with aviation dominating the air is it possible to expand the theater of operations, confidently offensive and, ultimately, victory.
