Someone must have been reading what posters here have been discussing, the Russian's are deploying their 1RL239 artillery locating radar and their "Big Fred" 1RL232 battlefield surveilence radar.  Just goes to show you never know who's reading your posts. :ph34r:

 

Aren't both vehicles capable of being used as counter-battery radars?  In which case why have or even use both?  Maybe one is just more specialised or has a longer tracking range than the other?  A book covering specialised vehicles such as this (especially Soviet AFV's) would be a real interesting read for sure.

 

This is a surprise?

I am beyond confident that this form, and many others, are gleamed for freebies. Look at the collection of SME's (subject matter experts) you have, sitting under one cyber-roof.

As for Ivan bringing more toys to the party...(popcorn munching).

And quite a few toys at that!

 

I cannot help but think that the Congo-bound shipment of T-64's being cancelled is going to hurt the credibility of the Ukrainian military as far as export orders go.  I can understand why the tanks were effectively recalled but I'm not sure any possible future customers will think along the same lines.  Is T-64BV1 an official designation for those vehicles destined for Congo?

 

And regarding my previous question concerning the ground radar vehicles being deployed, would they really be an effective weapon against the drones which are being used in the conflict?  Have they ever been used in such a way before?  Using something like MANPADS or even light AAA would seem a waste against such targets.

Looks like an IED/mine.

 

Soldier and BMP-2 on different sides?

No, it is all pro-Ukrainians deep in their positions in Peski. Here is full video, featuring Right Sector field medical team

Lasers would be more effective. Once you spot the little toy, dazzle it, and let it fly away. The sensors cost as much if not more than the RC plane itself. There is also the other option of having fun with it. Make decoy sites, throw trash around, and make heat sources, and let it see everything you want it to see; a free magic show. As for all the little UN/EU drones flying around, cataloging everything, I would say let them. The information is priceless to all sides in a "lessons learned" AAR fashion, and it wouldn't be hard to get ones' hands on a copy. If they can see your toys, then you know in the future what not to do with your toys.

As for radars and jamming/frying--requires transmitting, and transmitters paint themselves. All those trons in the air screaming "here I am!"... bad idea. Best to let the other side paint themselves, then you can fill in your maps, curtsey of the other side. Once the map is complete, then you can storm the castle in a smart fashion, and rinse-repeat.

Imagine the coin the supply runners are making off this conflict.

But it's hardly the first time this happens? If I remember correctly, the British navy acquired a lot of foreign orders at the outbreak at both world wars and commissioned the vessels into the Royal Navy?

Remember, most my posts are coming from Twitter feeds on opposite sides of this conflict.  Veracity of the information is most certainly not guaranteed.birgits_snill.gif

Boy, they're really scraping the bottom of museums now. :D

 

What language is that on the Panzerfaust? I can gather the meaning, but it's neither German nor Dutch or something Scandinavian according to Google Translate.
