          Why this article, sorry?
          Rejoice at the successes of our enemies?
          Well, yes, I agree, "you need to know the enemy by sight."
          But Latvia, for example, will not receive a shisha from NATO:
          “Representatives of the Latvian intelligentsia even wrote a letter to the German Chancellor with a request to support the creation of a military base in Latvia.
          During a press conference in Riga, Angela Merkel said that she had read the letter, but the deployment of a NATO base in Latvia is not planned in the near future. "

            Yes, such BEAUTY can place terabytes.
            But she is to the "professor" like a desert thorn under the tail of a dromedary.
            I’m saying that psychologists need to understand it by looking for hidden injuries in military equipment of Russia and the USSR in childhood.

            For me personally, here is the beauty of no objection. I will call her "Two brothers on vacation" -

            And for the future. I will specially try to select pictures from the exercises of the "Bundeswehr" (my brother sent them) from the screw and offer them for placement.

                There are typos everywhere, probably the 3rd battalion of the 159th reconnaissance-strike (assault) regiment (there must be a regiment). Battalions in the US Army traditionally retain the numbering of regiments (159th), but in fact are battalions (in brackets the abbreviation ARB at the end of the full name), so that there is no duplication, assign the serial number of battalions (from the 1st to the 5th) in different formations.

                    You can of course, for example, the 7th, 76th, 98th and 106th Airborne Divisions simply call the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th. The meaning is clear, what can not be otherwise?

I noticed one peculiarity for all those who are not too lazy to kick their feet .............. this is our homeland is bad or good but the homeland, you know Oleg. You can criticize even mercilessly but wipe your feet are not allowed to repeat to anyone. Explain for yourself once and for all.

      Of course, the moral and strong-willed qualities of a l / s unit are a necessary element when conducting a b / d, but there is one big "BUT" when the enemy sees you through a thermal imager or a night light 3-5 km away. and listens to your negotiations for 20-50 km from the front line, sees your movements being hundreds of kilometers away. from you and all this information online transfers for immediate action to whoever should, then, I'm afraid to disappoint some of whom, the maneuver for the exploits of which there were not enough in the Second World War, will not remain at all, they simply, stupidly will not allow enemies to approach them ...

      "Shapkozakidatelem" for reference. There are no Marines in the crews of destroyers, the l / s (yesterday's 17-year-old schoolchildren) of the crews do not go through the initial 15-week qualifying and preparatory courses, unlike the latter. On average, 15-16% of NK and PL crews are women, by the way, 27 out of 280 people. who wrote reports and were annoyed that the combat alert was not announced and the hostile air target was not hit even on the approach to the destroyer, or after the 20-mm ZAK or MANPADS, young Americans accustomed to "wet" everyone, blamed the command for indecision (large, but young - what to take !?) - it's about their "fighting spirit".

    The victory is not a weapon, but the spirit of a soldier. Whatever high-tech weapons the opponent has, ingenuity, the ability to think and the desire to win will always bring victory.
    Fache Germany fought on more high-tech aircraft, but ours realized that their fuel was afraid of low temperatures and began to impose high-altitude battles. And the fash pilots began to burn in packs. This is an example.
    The Donald Cook incident showed how painfully the US military reacts to non-standard situations.
    God forbid to fight, but if necessary, Russia will win, no doubt. Even if tactical nuclear weapons, lasers, railguns, and so on are used by that party. We always won, first of all, by a thirst for victory.
    Do not touch Russia, do not wake sleeping bears in their dens)))

    Let’s be without morality. The USSR tortured millions of its citizens and never wash it.
    ProfEssor hates the USSR, and as I understand it, he hates both Russia and the whole Russian world, so you do not sit quietly in the promised land, where did you safely move from the fierce USSR? Put on a hat, grow paisas and go to the synagogue to pray, so that the Russians will finally die out. But here it’s not necessary to write nasty things about our country, and I don’t want to see sweetly drooling comments under photos of enemy equipment. Only those. characteristics, virtues and vulnerabilities, as people wrote above.
    You are a professor who betrayed your MOTHERLAND, and you don’t choose your Motherland, just like your mother! They love her for who she is!

      You understand poorly. Find at least one of my comments disrespectful attitude towards Russia and then we'll talk. Do not learn how to spell my nickname, go to the black list of rude and Natsik.

      so why aren't you professor sitting quietly in the promised land, where you have safely relocated from the fierce USSR? Put on a hat, grow paisas and go to the synagogue to pray, so that the Russians will finally die out.

      Do not tell me what to do and I will not tell you where to go.

            Professor "My condolences. You can take a man out of a scoop, but never a scoop out of a man."
            Are you talking about yourself?)))) Former scoops do not exist.))) Tell me how you suppressed this "vile" feeling of a scoop in yourself?))) Or are you an exception and were not originally a scoop? Born free and imbued with the spirit of freedom? You don't have to answer, I'm having fun reading the comments of people who have lived most of their lives with the scoop and hate it.)))

              I repeat. We had a teacher at school. He enlightened us "what is good and what is bad."

                And how old are you? If most of you lived after the collapse? But ... they managed to get an education on the ball?))) Damned Sovdepia.)))
                And she gave your teacher a job so that he would open your hated eyes and teach you "what is good".))) This is understandable.)))
                I will not take your time, you already probably expressed your opinion on this topic.))) Everyone has their own truth.))) You wrote to the guy STALGRAD76 that he was a scoop. Or a scoop in it.))) This is not true ...- he is an imperialist.))) And this is another topic.

      It’s interesting why the American, who left to live in Paris, still remains an American, and the Russian, who left for the same Paris, becomes a traitor ???
