Fallout Re: Updates in light of Ukraine war

White Arm Bands - Russian troops as identified early on.

This might explain the other Russian colors.
https://www.forces.net/russia/ribbon...embrance-poppy

Blue or Yellow
worn separately or together Ukrainian troops.

Both - Are wearing their country flag patches on their sleeves.

Seen some pointing out in videos and photos where Russian troops are wearing black boots and Ukrainian wearing brown- or dessert-colored ones.

Also found this interesting...

Also, a bunch of stories about this on the web...I little "psyops"...

THAT is significant from my POV for three reasons

  • I have been testing various NLOS weapons with my drone experiments and the two coupled together is highly effective

The powerful Javelin anti-tank missiles that Ukraine has been getting from the United States tend to dominate the headlines.

That makes sense. The Javelins aren’t just highly effective weapons—they’re also symbols of U.S. support for Ukraine as a huge Russian army masses on the Russia-Ukraine border.

But the Ukrainian army has only a handful of Javelin launchers—47 from the United States plus an unspecified number that Estonia has pledged—and a few hundred of the 35-pound, 2.5-mile-range, infrared-guided missiles.

The huge majority of Ukraine’s anti-tank missile arsenal is locally made. And the local Stugna-P is proving to be just about as dangerous as the world-class Javelin. And cheaper.
We do have the Skif in the OOB and I just changed it to make it more selectable to the AI but ( I just discovered ) the Stugna-P was developed from the Skif so that's on the list to investigate ( that may be the Skif 2M-K ATGM W237 ),but I need to investigate further if the Ukrainians do indeed have NLOS Spikes

THIS says they do not

Lots of contradictory stuff out there I read while Israel has been asked several times for Spike they have not supplied any.

As long as Israel needs Russia's lenience to keep letting them hit targets in Syria, you won't see much direct support. Well...all things considered.

Good footage from what looks like a Mi-28N getting cut in half from something. According to the video it's a Starstreak missile, though obviously I don't know about that.

As I had already posted, the timing should be right for the Ukraine to start operating them. UK had already shipped them out.

And this is why distance is important.
I don't think I have seen any more clear footage of an attack on a tank, but at the same time a silly mistake.

Fallout Re: Updates in light of Ukraine war

I had already earlier yesterday morning confirmed the use of the STARSTREAK anti-air missile attack on a Russian Mil Mi-28 Havoc (This is my opinion based on the video.) attack helicopter. The following should bring closure to this issue.

What is different, for whatever reason, is the response from Russia concerning the STARSTREAK. Obviously, it would seem they are much more concerned about STARSTREAK then our STINGER 2 anti-air missile.

The UK STARSTREAK did get updated within the last 3-4 years if memory serves.

Might have to run a comparison between the two systems. I further would point out not to underestimate what or what not they're getting. For instance, the JAVALIN and STINGER 2 missile systems came out of our European pre-deployed storage facilities meant for our troops. How else did they get them so fast at the start of the war?

Unlike the UK, they didn't threaten us over our STINGER 2.
https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world...e14c131909c239


I have other tasking at the moment.

Don if you see this, know I'm looking onto the Czech T-72 tanks. Along with NATO we've signaled that we'll assist in getting them into the Ukraine.

Also looks like the Ukraine is also from some pictures I've seen, are operating captured Russian T-72B3 tanks. This still needs further investigation on my part. I'm NOT ready to "jump off the bridge" for this yet.

It's impossible to keep up with every breaking development in Ukraine. We just try to keep up as best we can

Seems Germany is giving BMP-1s to Ukraine from OLD East Germany stocks...I wonder how bad a shape these things will be in?

This may be of interest

Ukrainian Conflict - Tank Recognition

A guide on how to tell apart different tanks that are taking part in the Ukrainian Conflict. Both Russian and Ukrainian tanks are a part of this guide. From T-64BV, T-72B to T-72B3M and T-80BVM, all tanks that have taken part in the conflict so far.
