Which might be exactly what the Ukrainians want. The region around Kherson is basically a Salient. If the UA manages to strangle the Russians supply routes, and from the information we have it seems they focus exactly on that, the Russian forces there might become trapped.

I have heard that specific opinion expressed: That this is a trap.

So modern Western professional army tries to apply its own standards to an Eastern army that is being stood up out of civilians and is surprised? Oh boohoo. We can clearly hear the miffedness about having to buy AKs. At what cost? Several 1000 at what? 400$ each? That was the British Army not thinking.

Oh come on, did you really fall for that obvious fake?

That's the wrong form, from the wrong military, filled out by somebody who is not a native speaker...

2 of the 3 tanks that fell into a crevasse  including the T90M that rolled over in Ukraine 10th July seems to be back for repairs ,the one that rolled is  missing the RWS and lots of bent stuff, also interesting are the Soft pack era on the turret that  was previusly hidden by the thermal tarp

This is a fun one; a soldier has created a blend of musical beats using the percussive / mechanical sounds of different frontline weapons. 

Sort of like the next level up from the guys you see in times square playing the paint buckets as drums - here using empty Javelin tubes and AK74's.

Interesting interview

What Ukraine thinks of Tanks

In this video we look at an interview with a Ukrainian Tank officer talking about tank and tank combat in the Russo-Ukrainian War. The interview was released...

Heres a fun one. Hummer rolling up on a Russian occupied village; blasting away with M2 .50, gunner runs out of ammo, and proceeds to just fire 2x AT4's from the gunners hatch while rolling.

So a few months ago, we saw a DIY Truck mounted Brimstone missile MLRS:

We're now seeing a commercialized version being developed. While not officially a result of operational use in Ukraine, I'd be surprised if it wasn't:

It will be interesting to see what other weapon concepts emerge onto the market based on experience from Ukraine.
