And while credit has been given to the tenacity of their soldiers, Ukrainians have also benefited from a firehose of powerful Western weaponry: U.S. long-range HIMARS artillery systems, M777 howitzers, high-speed anti-radiation missiles, French-made Caesar howitzers, and German-made Panzerhaubitze self-propelled artillery.

That has allowed the Ukrainians to fire, with pinpoint precision, at targets -- for example, bridges over the Dnieper River or command posts in the Kharkiv and Luhansk regions -- from distances harder for Russian artillery to reach.

Fallout Re: International Defence Green and White Papers

Well, it appears "Operation Deception"-Mine has thus far been a rousing success. According to the following article (Atlantic is a well-respected publication.) this was a well-planned operation and held close for quite some time.

The rest is further follow-up on Germany. Germany will and does hold the key to the heavy armor situation when it comes to the Ukraine getting Western tanks. We also do to a lesser extent but I'm not seeing happening at our end any time soon.

It'll take Germany to make the first move then maybe others will follow suit. By progression.

Yeah, going to disagree with you on your stand on the Atlantic. I would trust the National Enquire before trusting them.

The rest is though is interesting.

Now, this raises a question......... WHY would there be a Ukrainian Truck allowed on the bridge ?..........IF indeed it was a "Ukrainian Truck"

EDIT 1
This could have just been a simple accident on the bridge that is being spun into a " Ukrainian Terrorist incident"...........if one of your ammo trucks blew up and rendered a critical supply route impassible would you blame your own people or the "enemy" ?

EDIT 2

OTOH.........

https://www.cnn.com/2022/10/08/europ...osion-intl-hnk

Mute the talking heads and watch what happens between 10 and :13 seconds

It does not appear the explosion originated ON the bridge. It APPEARS to come from the right side under the bridge
