        In one country not far from us they like to shout - Glory to the Heroes! Yes, only Heroes are not there, for example, alone: ​​traitors, fascists, poets, downs and ped ... s.
        But how the Heroes of Russia die, how the Russians simply die ... Now not a single g ... but will not be able to say that Andrey has retreated and the notorious English tabloids can already write without sarcasm about "Russian Rambo" to the soldiers of "Her Majesty" before FEAT as to China ra ... m. And if someone tries to convince me, talking about the heroism of modern Englishmen or Americans SHOW ME VIDEO, where the soldier stands to the last without retreating and firing at a kamikaze approaching him, despite distinct shouts -We leave, for cover! (22 sec.)

        Andrey joined Sasha Prokhorenko. Now these two guys, like two Apostles, will set the bar for all the guys who serve in the Army. How to live and how to die. Let the earth rest in peace for you Andrey, as well as Sasha! Bow to the ground for what you have done. You gave your homeland a weapon comparable to a nuclear one with your livesshowing the WORLD, and the abomination that now barks and spits in our homeland, how the Russians will fight and die for their homeland, if something happens ...

        Thank you guys for a lump in my throat, and tears in my eyes with pride and understanding that I am RUSSIAN like you!

        The whole world is looking at our guys in Syria. Without American window dressing, our guys are doing their job, doing their duty. These are not cinematic Stalone and Vilis, but real heroes. The Russian spirit is not an illusion and words, but what sits in every Russian man, making him truly invincible. May the earth be lost to all our fallen guys.
        And of course, it is necessary to help the families of the victims.

      I saw this video the day before yesterday and noted this fighter for myself ... but I didn’t delve into the color of my uniform, I also thought: we must have Guys in the Syrian army! All drapanuli and this one stayed and fired to the end-Hero.
      And it turned out to be a Russian soldier Andrei Timoshenkov!
      Glory and memory to you, Andrey!

    Oh, sorry guy. But he could not do otherwise. I couldn’t do it. Because a Russian soldier. It’s a shame that there wasn’t much bigger thing to get these barmales from afar. But this is so, rhetorically. The shaitan will take them there, who is behind the wheel, and what’s in the car ...

      Large-caliber, there was a DShK - but the pickup truck with her draped first. There was also an ATGM - but they missed it and the operator ran for the cart with the DShK. The tank missed and in 40 seconds it didn’t fire anymore, they want nobody to drape from there. A pickup truck with a ZU-23 fired several bursts (maybe the box was over) and the shooter wanted to drape behind a cart with a DShK, but in the end he stayed at the car.

      Pickup truck shooting does not work unfortunately at all. There, the driver’s layout is something like this - a sheet or two of steel and a window with a Humvee armored:

      MTO covers the armored plate in 2-3 steel sheet.

      It could be stopped by a tank (missed), ATGM (similarly), DShK (escaped), ZU-23 (either the cartridges ran out, or the shooter was at a loss).

        A pickup with a ZU-23, a pickup with a DShK and a tank drove a suicide bomber in an open field with perfect visibility. And because of these deer in Russia there was a young widow with a daughter in her arms. No words, some mats. angry

          This can happen to anyone.
          Recently, an article was published in the Washington Post that quoted an NSA officer saying that on May 7 they were unable to stop an IS vehicle with IEDs on board and prevent an attack due to the lack of anti-tank missile systems (ATGMs). We have at our disposal photo and video material, according to which, after this attack, the NSA probably received anti-tank systems from a foreign supplier

            Any heroism is a consequence of someone’s flaws.
            The thing is that this should not have been there. A colleague draws attention to gagging or the cowardice of guarding this event (I honestly don't want to think about betrayal) ...
            Why, this "jihadmobile" was able to drive up to the distance of guaranteed defeat at all. Where were our allies - the Syrians, why didn't they dare to fuck this car together with the driver on a flat surface like a board ...

    In an amicable way "Gazprom" should be so robust enough money to fit the family of the deceased.
    I think that our guys in Syria will appreciate it. Protecting the interests of the Motherland is not measured by the amount of money, although it is never superfluous, but there is no need to shout about it.
    Good memory to the Hero of Russia! I have no doubt in awarding the award. Sincere condolences to relatives and friends ...
