Russian army under equipped?

Recommended Posts

Swedes looked at several NATO mobility exercises and came up with their time lines and some conclusions. You can see the relevant screenshots below.

The long story cut short - it takes 2-4-6 weeks to reinforce Poland, which would imply that a rapidly developing crisis in Ukraine would not allow significant NATO reinforcements.

Western press keeps mum on the fact that Zelensky backtracked in Paris on full disengagement argeed at advisors level by all four sides inculding Ukraine in September. He seems to be more wary of 24% that voted for Poroshenko than of 74% who voted for him. Having 2-3 KIAs a week on either side is more politically acceptable for Ukrainian establishment than ending the hot phase of the conflict. Even though the current situation has been going on for years and it does not lead anywhere.

Cool video of the upgraded T-80BVM, playing in the snow:

Interesting to see them with the usual air filters not deployed or removed entirely.....I guess dust isn't much of an issue up there.  ;)

Great looking tank IMHO.  B)

Cool video, is that variant equipped with independent thermal imager for TC? I've heard that they had early ones on the UK versions?

The MGS concept just doesn't want to die.

I think we will probably see Sprut along with BMDs in the forthcoming module.....I'd like to see the Nona & Nona SVK too, but I suspect they might be represented as off-board artillery in the same way as the 2S31 Vena in the current Russian TOE:

IMHO what the game really needs are Russian & Ukrainian HMGs, ZU-23-2s, a selection of MRLs & several more flavours of T-72 (T-72A, T-72AV, T-72B1 (m.1985 & m.1989), T-72BM, T-72BA & T-72B3M would all fit right in).

Some UnCons would be good too.....I may have mentioned that before.  ;)

Soviet 152mm 2.5Kt nuclear shell

The funny thing is the shell was developed in a Nuclear Research Center named after member of Acadimy of Science Eugeny Zababakhin. That loosely translates like Eugeny Big-Ka-Boom :)
