    It could have been leaked to weaken Ukraine. I can’t read the article but I assume it’s from sources and not named diplomats?

    Hopefully the gutless greedy bastards that have slowed down green and nuclear energy R&D for the sake of oil profits can be shunted to the corner where they belong.

    Thanks. I was also interested in how they work but was too lazy to look it up. I also like that they look like crazy anime guns

    Yep. It has a range of 5 km and weighs 5.5 kg, which is roughly 3 mi and 12 lbs according to Google.

    Depending on the sophistication of the drone it hits, the drone will lose communication and 1) drop immediately and crash, 2) immediately fly back to where it was launched from which can be tracked, or 3) emergency land safely like in the video and then reused.

    The actual material cost of their losses has to be beyond obscene. Like hundreds of billions.

    He’s awful but I don’t know if it’s a power play for the top. The regime needs a fall guy and, what do you know, the one guy with any power who happens not to be ethnically Russian is the singular cause of their failures.

    Svatove is the target that follows UKR strategy of choking out cities forcing RUS to abandon without costly urban fighting. If Svatove falls the Russians will need to retreat way back in Luhansk

    This is a really fascinating article on several levels but I don’t understand why more people aren’t talking about it.



    The most interesting portion revolves around these claims:

    Differs so much from the spirit of the finding... sounds like it was worded vaguely enough to leave a lot of wiggle room

    Yeah my main concern would be outrunning their supply lines, forming a bulge in the line that Russia can exploit, or running into a prepared position behind the Russian line of retreat and getting ambushed. All of which are kind of Russian SOP; retreat and cede lane for time, let the enemy overextend their supply line, let them walk into a prepared position, and counterattack.

    A tank commander I was in class with once upon a time said that’s a big problem with “motivated amateurs” (he was talking about Kurds at the time) and that they’re amazing fighters but tend to overlook logistical realities when the enemy is retreating.

    I had a guy like that in my gym, he was also completely content with the russian invasion of the ukraine because apparently ukrainians eat their children, which would make me wonder how there are still ukrainians but he legit believed it for some reason

    couldn't be clearer that he's receiving Russian funding to buy twitter. Not directly, of course, but that's why the entire concept of crypto currency was invented.

    USG needs to find out what sanctioned Russian oligarch is providing the $$$ and shut this shit down.

    how viable is this strategy in 2022 when armies are getting real time information from satellite imagery that can read license plates? Thus far it seems like ukraine has impeccable command and control of the battlefield as I’m sure the US is giving them tons of surveillance data
