armed forces of ukraine failed last night to get through the skirmish lines.....

which is the case because the long range fires and reacting aviation backed up the light lines....

artillery prep is minimized when the light force can call in heavy fires which are safe from the artillery preparation.

the value of air dominance!

a 'tank wedge'! we are not talking shield walls and swine heads!

Great analysis

Journalism is supposed to be news not marketing. One of the few ways the Russo/Ukrainian War ends is if there's too much blood and guts for Western Media to ignore. It tragically needs to be like a scene from 'Carrie'.

War, to the military industrial complex and the hawks they own, is the equivalent of Amazon online shopping.

Leopards were just the latest marketing scheme. Every time something fails, there's another thing on offer. Sure, some good-but-not-invincible items may receive less orders after this war, but war's financial speculators will have made a killing, and Ukraine will be in its second war, that of unwilling servitude to its creditors.

Letting the Ukrainian panzer fist reach some 10s of km into the second defense line opens the possibility of forming a kessel. At some point the front line troops will run low on critical ATGM and will have to pull back, as was intended.

With heave EW from both sides we should scale down our expectations on close in high def drone video.

30 tanks destroyed in 2 hours is not an offensive it’s a turkey shoot that’s one destroyed every 4 minutes, Russia should put all the strike together and call it Russias greatest hits and let that be a warning to the warmongering West

Yet another extremely informative article. Thank you for that.

It must be said - NATO got a heavy trouncing by a Russian screening force, no less, that may yet change the course of history. But the Russians must not get carried away by this early success. If the Ukrainians go all in and falling back to the rear lines is called for, false pride is your worst enemy.

But what is the word on the Karkhova dam? Some reports from yesterday say that the embankment has in fact not been breached. For how long can the Ukrainians keep releasing water from reservoirs further up the Dnepr to maintain the flooding? This must also be said - The Zelensky regime backed by NATO is committing a gigantic and ongoing ecological war crime that's also for the history books. That comes even on top on their willingness to use DU munitions.

If Ukraine doesn't have something big planned over the next couple days, this isn't going to end well for them. Also heard reports of rain in the next 2 weeks.

At this point I'm left pretty speechless regarding the wanton and sociopathic disdain for human life coming from the people here in the so-called west that are pulling the puppet strings. That the Ukros are being sent to the frontline of the meatgrinder with no artillery clearance and only moments after being told what they are to do says that NATO is calling in these orders for pure PR purposes, families and lives be damned. It's disgusting, really. And when I tell my friends and family that all the fucking callous assholes have to say in return is "Russia could just pack up and leave."

Knowing they'd get hit I think that they should have held the Leos back. Now it just feels like ritual humiliation for Germany by the allied millstone around their neck.

The West broke it, now they have to buy it. Get ripped and torn until it is done.

Thanks. I wait for your reports. No one comes close in details or accuracy.
