        It’s not that I didn’t understand your feelings, but the forum, so that everyone could express their opinion, isn’t that so?

        And, I note, the moderator DOES NOT RIGHT to disclose the personal data of users.

        As for the article, the author has a plus for delivering information to us promptly, and a minus for doing it superficially, no analysis, no collection of information, just a reprint from RIA Novosti.

        As a result, I did not put anything in the article.

      Bl ... in the troops there should be no non-armored vehicles, neither sentinel, nor transporting the squad of soldiers or transport !!! These fucking 12 Typhoons for $ 500 didn’t rest anywhere or anyone ... We just need protected jeeps and trucks !!! Not expensive, protected and a lot !!! How much more blood is needed when finally it reaches the decision makers !!! What is the problem of making the same Kamaz just in armor? Just protected from undermining and shelling ... Well, is it really impossible to do this using the new armored body and serial units?

        In general, everything is correct, with the amendment "in the subdivisions participating in the database and located in the zones, various local conflicts.
        Agree, to carry potatoes in the center of Russia in an armored truck is ridiculous.
        As for local reservations, everything has been delivered for so long.

        It is strange that the three damned Americans managed to set up several thousand MRAPs and already managed to write them off. At the same time, they were repeatedly ridiculed with their "hummers" naughty and other armored cars. But it turns out they manage to quickly respond to the problem, and quickly implement what is required in the troops. And in our country they manage to introduce it only to Red Square. And for Syria "Typhoons" are apparently too expensive or secret. Or the enemy inside, more terrible than the barmaley, is being protected.

          I was lying in Burdenko for 2 for a month, after flying at 15 meters from the beta to the first tree, with a slight concussion, glanders glanced over the bookmark on the staff road, although the blast was about 20 meters from the car, the armor saved the vertebrae, which I didn’t even have time to fasten. What could be the mine defense against the 152mm land mine? There the tank rinks are oppressing, in my battalion when 72go was blown up, the rinks went for a walk on the green, and the MPI after the blasting would look like a ragged rag with obscure organic matter inside, let's reserve everything? We’ll put a soldier in iron barrels with a V-shaped bottom, what if they suddenly explode? All the column bombings in the resorts of the Caucasus were in 90% cases of leakage of information from ours. All that is needed in order not to be undermined is the guarded routes, the good work of intelligence, sappers, secrecy and the direct preparation of the movement of the column. So against sticks and stones and cans with saltpeter MPI is more relevant than ever.
          Understand that no one has canceled physics, even though you will have a million mine defenses, inertia and impact force (energy) will still go to the hull, the mechanics of internal damage, whatever form you come up with, it can be reduced, but it's all about the charges low power, respectively, to protect yourself from more powerful ones, you need a more voluminous protection, respectively a charge (just to say a lot more) that will turn a car or tank into a sedentary and heavy vulnerable target. Therefore, I’m not even surprised, just people who have never seen and didn’t feel a break near, even if they were a normal mine, they don’t understand the strength and pressure of the shock wave and what is being done after that with the person, hence the naive conclusions such as MRI, let's reserve everything? When a 7-10 kg capacity is blown up on an anti-tank mine, the crew of the tank (especially the mechanical water driver) sometimes gets a slight shell shock, and then this toilet bowl ... as if all sorts of MRAPS and explosion-proof cars didn’t advertise, in fact they hold no more than 5-6 kg, and even then, even with 5-6 kg, those who sit in mraps will not be nice anymore, because they will be provided for life with an explosive tram, disability pension, damage to internal organs, headaches (consequences of a concussion) and even a ticket to Durkee . We have here lovers of everything to do mine action up to the toilet in the barracks. Have you guys at least once felt like an explosive packet is spanking? Many who participated, immediately said that it would be better to kill with a blast than to remain a fool and an invalid for life.

            Yes, what a point is what you are talking about, VKS in the city do not throw a window into the neighbor’s window, but work out the area knowing that there are no civilians there. Using chemistry, you can be sure that the militants die at 0 losses of SAA and can’t beat it off yet time. Thereby, you can not keep the Syrian army throughout Syria and use it to the full in that direction in which you need to. They do not spit on the NATO states knowing that they can be buried there, all that they can is missile bombings but again, bypassing the UN.

      Yesterday I read an interesting article by our journalist on warfile, about the attitude of the locals to our Soldiers, Russia, about their hopes and aspirations, about how I witnessed how a car from the "desert" taxied onto the highway with three men in the cabin, how they looked at each other in eyes and as already in the area of ​​our responsibility, our soldiers destroyed the Babahmobile. The big shock of the journalist was that how did the three men go to explode ?!
      And the next day, accompanied, our marine was killed, standing to the very end.
      In his article, the author warns that the layman has a false idea that there are unskillful "lumps" fighting there, and in fact people who have graduated from military universities of the USSR, France, the USA are fighting there with experience of war in Chechnya, Afghanistan and African countries, if the convoy escort is given to the Syrians, who will fight? They already have a hard time with people. Describes how the aviation ironed out the positions, then the artillery began to attack and the broads began to violently resist, this suggests that the fortifications and morale of the broads are at the proper level.
      At the end of the article, the author summarizes and writes that Russia does everything right by burying the broads in the sand, these broads having tremendous supply from the monarchies, Turks, the USA and Europe will come to Russia there.
      Destroy the sprouts of the demon on the spot.

    Very sad news. Condolences to relatives.
    But the question has long been ripe for the leadership of the Russian Federation (mine). Somehow gradually, but the number of deaths from the category "well, this is military action" goes into the category of statistics. There is one, there is a crew, there is a pilot, there ... Well, yes, the award is posthumous, help the family ... A year ago, the death of a Russian soldier was a sad event, now it has become statistics: one more (or several). I understand that people are at war, and there is no war without victims. But isn't it time for the country's leadership to open up to admit that Russia is already embroiled in full-scale hostilities in Syria, with relevant messages, within the framework of ordinary residents, what is being done in connection with the changed conditions and what is the attitude towards these changed conditions. And then, somehow, everyone is held for idiots who do not understand anything and are only able to "hawk" what is pouring from the TV.

          By the way, I am our warriors - who defended the interests of our state in Afghanistan or Chechnya - I do not call mercenaries!

          But INSURING our soldiers fighting in Syria. Do you think that there they are fighting and dying somehow wrong?

        And since when has the contingent of our troops in Syria transferred to the category of MERCENARIES?



        Just a stupid analogy is drawn between a contractor - that means a mercenary ...
        But according to this wild logic, then it is possible to equate all regular military personnel with mercenaries - after all, they receive a salary (monetary and other allowance) from the state ...

        The man, obviously, does not even know that during the Great Patriotic War, our fighters were paid separately for each destroyed unit of enemy-fascist equipment ...

        Well, THEY - fought for the money ???

        With such logic, the devil can know what to agree on ... This is where the different fifth columns play ... All the good things are instantly framed ... hi

      Who is brainwashing you? If there are notes about ours, those who died or died from wounds in Dagestan - the reaction is no less. About Urkaina in general, every day and many times. And to call OUR soldier - MERCENARY - you're wrong. Strong.

          You are trying to be smart. You play with the words "contract mercenary".
          In logic, this is called an incorrect (false) premise.
          Google.

          And more:
          - Do you think that all the CANDLES of the Armed Forces of the USSR and the Russian Federation were mercenaries? They were also Afghanistan and the Czech Republic.
          “Do officers and warrant officers also have mercenaries?”
          Nat time to prove something to you, but with the interpretation of the words you have big failures.
          Yes, and the theme you have chosen ...inappropriate for their "cleverness".

      Yes, they are the same Heroes. So far, their names cannot be fully and officially named, but this can be done with the names of those who died in Syria, so that the Country would understand that its more or less peaceful life is now bought by the lives of its Soldiers.

    And now, if at the peak of the news - the MERCEDARY - died, then you need to hurry up your tear-snotty comments

    The contractor is not a mercenary. Mercenaries I understand this applies either to private armies or when foreign citizens are hired for money. This does not apply to the regular army.
    The level of low losses that we have achieved in Syria is the unique experience that Shoigu has achieved. It should be the bar for all other companies. Must be projected and used in the future.
    And then the whole world watches our company in Syria, including our potential opponents. And our future may depend on how this company goes.
    I remember our not-so-brilliant company in Finland did not stop Hitler from attacking the USSR. Maybe if our losses in Finnish were less, then the Germans would have been thoughtful.

      Isn't a scout a spy? I personally knew a helicopter pilot who, on his Mi-6, pulled out wrecked pin-dos tanks in Afghanistan (for repair). His crew was dropped completely by the crew! Our state sent it (for a five-day salary + a small prize) to whom should be considered a hero or a mercenary?

        It would be interesting how he did it, given the fact that the load capacity of the Mi6 does not allow it ...

        If officially sent by the State - then Hero.
        And you are somehow strange about the issue of payment for a MORTALLY DANGEROUS work. So it’s possible to slide to the point that soldiers who fought in the Great Patriotic War can be called Mercenaries, they also received MONEY for a wrecked tank, a destroyed gun and an airplane.

    I grieve.
    The fact that people are dying, especially in a war, is natural. As Suvorov said: "A bullet is a fool ...." And to die may be so, for the Motherland is better than from drugs, alcohol, from a terrorist attack. War losses in Syria are inevitable.
    In France, when walking on the promenade, several dozen died, stupidly. Not on the battlefield.
    In the morning I watched TV. All about Munich, 24 hours. Hot news! vfnm dfie! I don’t care about the problems of Germans, French, etc. If old Merkel, like an ethnic German woman, does not spare her citizens, then we should feel sorry for them.
    I respected the Germans. Calm, law-abiding nation. But what have they turned into tolerance?
    Terrorist attack in France. Our TV: "This is the humiliation of the nation" Vfnm dfie, and they are no stranger to humiliation.
    Russian Leningrad in blockade, perished but did not surrender to the Germans. NKVD officers sharing the burdens of the blockade with the townspeople liquidated German agents in the city. And these .... Look

    somewhere, I already heard something like this, such as a limited contingent of international duty (our people and the authorities have nothing to learn from history), and as for the deceased, I don’t need such heroism (how many of the deceased are needed to understand that Syria and Assad remember the dastardly thing)

      Well, you can not argue with the contingent, it is limited and limited. But on the account of the INTERNATIONAL DUTY in relation to modern Syria - recall where and when it was sounded that it exists. In Syria, our soldiers and officers are not fighting for Assad or Syria, but for Russia and for each of us. It is better to defeat the enemy there than to let him into our territory.

        To smash? To do this, it is necessary to carry out a strategic operation, taking into account the destruction of financial and material supply. To strike at supply and support centers, and these are other sovereign countries. And we substituted for the blows that our opponents would fantasize. Or war according to our rules or HOME !!!!

      The fact is that the war in Syria with terrorists and all kinds of moderately not moderate requires a much larger scale than the current sluggish one, in this war the terrorist conveyor can be destroyed only with the help of another conveyor - a land operation, from Syria, Iran, Iraq, the Kurds and Russia.
