Some Updates;

Quite the reversal from earlier in the year.

It's becoming quite obvious that the United States has, in large quantity, a "hard counter" to any form of battlefield tech Russia possesses.


Tank stuff;


We may be seeing some of the older mothballed M1s heading into battle. It won't be the Fulda Gap like they were intended but still the right adversary.

Prior concern has been training, maintaining, and supplying M1s. However, rapid integration by the Ukrainians of other modern US kit is probably changing that concern. The M1 is a unique tank though... it will absolutely wreck shop against its opponents but she's also very heavy and very very thirsty having a jet engine and whatnot.

More tank stuff;


Not a great addition but definitely a tank you still have to deal with. This will allow better Ukrainian tanks to rotate into heavier combat zones.

I would like to see Ukraine win this war and boot Russia out of the country for good. I think it's horrible what Putin/Russia has done to the Ukrainian people.


However, scroll through this page, especially about 1/3 of the way down, and tell me you don't go hmmm, this is not a good look for Ukraine.

It's posted by a self-proclaimed VDV.

Photos like these exist across all armed forces including ours unfortunately.

Putin announces a Partial Mobilization.


Does this mean anything? No, probably not as it doubtful Russia can even mobilize in a meaningful way at this point. This won't satisfy the hardliners and it looks to be the best way for him to ease in to what will be a wider mobilization/war effort.

The plan for Putin appears to be;

Throw men into the meat grinder to;

Blunt upcoming Ukrainian offensives along multiple fronts meanwhile;

hold sham referendums to declare conquered areas part of Russia which;

would allow Russia to declare them under the Russian nuclear umbrella and then;

Hope this works... (it won't)

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu with some serious laughs claiming Russia has only suffered 5,937 casualties since March.

This done during the announcement Russia will seek to draft 300k.

Putin's draft opened up the age to 65.


Biden could do that as well when China attacks us.
