BMP3 demonstrating its 100mm cannon against urban fortifications:
Norwegian and British volunteers with CZ Bren 2's and what looks like a AI sniper rifle (?) with Vortex scope:
Netherlands sending PzH 2000 self propelled howitzers:
This is an interesting one. A company in Poland or some other E. Europe country is rapidly producing Level III equivalent armor plates from AR500/equivalent steel, for use in Ukraine.
Per arfcom, this was from a batch of 1100 that were just sent over, funded by private donations.
First person NLAW kill:
Is it even known if the defense of the Moskva have been active at the time of the attack?
A pertinent question, judging by the experience of other navies equipped with advanced CIWS. An extract from my new book:
Anti-ship missiles have been fired at Phalanx-equipped ships on only a handful of occasions. On 17 May 1987, the destroyer USS Stark was hit by two Exocet missiles while patrolling in the Persian Gulf; the Phalanx system was not switched on. On 14 July 2006 the Israeli corvette INS Hanit was hit by a missile. Again, the Phalanx system was not switched on. In February 1991 during the Persian Gulf War an Iraqi Silkworm missile was fired at the battleship USS Missouri, which was being escorted by HMS London and HMS Gloucester (both Type 42 destroyers carrying Sea Dart). The missile was destroyed by a Sea Dart fired from Gloucester, the first time a SAM had successfully engaged an enemy missile during combat at sea. The Missouri did have Phalanx systems but these did not engage as the missile was destroyed before getting close. A few weeks later, Missouri was involved in another incident in which a (mistaken) warning of a missile attack was given. The Phalanx system of the escorting frigate USS Jarrett was switched on, and fired at defensive chaff launched by Missouri.
its the Ukrainian "crook" extended handguard. Idk why the military has that because its more like a civilian accessory.

Good find, interesting item.
Russians using laser guided 152mm:
This is really interesting.
A brand new, rapid prototype sUAS/Loitering Munition that has never been seen before is being sent to Ukraine. Reportedly it has been partially developed with Ukranian input on their requirements in the Donbas.
