    Don't agree fully.
    I think a huge factor is poor quality of materials.
    And possibly that is related to the oligarch buddy circle in the Kremlin. Selling materials of poor quality to Russia for some extra bucks in their pocket.
    With the connections they got to the Kremlin, doubt many dare to speak up.

    Seen so many pictures where the rims been ripped off, can clearly see the plate with the bolts left on the vehicle.
    Why is it called earth, when it is mostly water???

    Russians also have huge problems with minor corruption/graft. Stealing spares for resale etc.

    We may not. I was very much rather that he was posting on FHC than getting sent to a pointless death by a floppycocked midget autocrat.

    I'm in two minds. On the one hand no one deserves to die, but on the other he is RaZoR.

    Perhaps we may hope that he comes out of this with a wider perspective than "RUS STRONK"

    He mocked and trolled when the Malaysia airliner was shot down by seperatists with a Russian supplied missile so I don't see him as that innocent.

    Full on war-enabler and supporter. Just because he played the same vidyas than some of you does not make any of his worldviews any more "innocent".

    Afaik he even has a white-slip and knows military only from parades and googlesearches so the text-book stay-at-home-warmonger and completly delussional about russians value to the world except as a supplier of stuff dug up from under the earth.
    Still laughing from an exchange from back during the maidan when he thought everyone in the west knows how to read cyrilic and understands some russian because it is so important and wide spread in the world.

We cannot support a large military so instead a large amount of our defense budget goes on training, both the individual soldiers and the officers and we really focus on logistics. So a small but professional army well trained and well supplied.

    Russia on the other hand is trying to maintain a superpower level of equipment. Even with the general population living in relative poverty the Russians simply do not have enough resources. So the areas they don't fund are training and logistics. So they have a small core of professional troops but the bulk are scared and bastardised conscripts and drunks.

    You can get away with that when you are fighting opponents who are massively outnumbered, but fight someone willing to fight back and all that money not spent on training and logistics really starts to bite.

    Even the professional troops were let down by terrible planning, failing to seize airfields then flying in transports packed with paratroopers who get blown out of the sky. Then you send a massive column of vehicles down a single road without any system of resupply or recovery and farmers tow off your abandoned tanks.

    In hindsight this should have been obvious I suppose. Or maybe the Russians are only using export models.
    Russia pours a huge amount of resources into trying to maintain a large navy, mostly out of pride. This reduces the amount they can feasibly invest in their ground based forces.

    In order to be successful at more than simply bullying some tiny nations in 'special operations' with massed artillery beating everyone into submission they need to make the decision to go all in on their capabilities to take and hold land with a modern army. That would mean dropping their naval ambitions.
    Look, the wages you withheld from the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of Hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves for slaughter.

    Apparently now confirmed (as good as i gets I guess). But it seems this is correct but at the same time too good to be true. But if it is...jesus christ...
    Ukraine navy elements lured Russias newest stealth cruiser(?) "Vasily Bykov" into a trap, close enough to land for the Army to fuckin end it with with MLRS barrage.

    Russian warship, go fuck yourself.

    It was a Patrol Boat. (not a confirmation of it being sunk)
    Still, nicely done.

    Here's hoping it will eventually result in something good, like a coup that deposes the crazy bastard.
