And another strange case of an AFV alone near a forrest. Where are the dismounts? Why is the APC strolling around in the kill zone of LAWs?

Maybe the dismounts were in the woods the AFV retreated to? I could see the end guy of a company told to hold this area down while we sweep the rest of the woods. Only the opposition wasn't where command thought it was.

In the video, there’s a lot of FA fire right after the vehicle is struck; possibly engaging the dismounts or dis trying to suppress the AT team?

I know. But the wheeeled version is called HiMARS and since anything that launches multiple ballistic rockets in this conflict is called an MLRS, down to katyushas, I thought I'd try and be a bit more precise :o)

On fist glance yes it looks that way but this could be missleading. Also the context is missing. As usual.

Maybe its a deliberate tactic.
It could be that the clearing is small and they want to get as much distance to the treeline as possible. It could be a new tactic to optimise the effectiveness of ADS with overlaping zones.
I also find the 3+2 ratio of MBTs and BMPTs intresting. A 3+1 or 4+1 ratio seemed more likely in the past.
It will be really intresting how the BMPT performs and what tactics and counter tactics will be used.
