      The decor really match the building itself, both the ammo and the warehouse looks like a dump from the 70's. I hope the ukies detonate the place and make a cool video about it going into the stratosphere.

        Nah. Make it a historical site, showing one of the times Russia fucked up.

        Let it be a monument to Vatnik shame.

        We all know there will be a TON of historical sites post-war to see.

      I honestly thought it was just a joke from the early weeks of the war, but this is just sad. Apart from the METAL BAWKSES this stuff looks like it would stack nicely on any pallet

        Moving by hand builds physique.
        And private Conscriptovich has something to do. That means he does not have time to do something retarded.

        maybe these little wooden things are their version of pallets?

          how are they supposed to move all this shit with a pallet jack or a forklift? theres no way to put the forks into those wooden things, i dont even know what the purpose of them is

            dunno, they seem to be somewhat standardized for insertion of some sort. maybe they have some strange off spec pallet jack over in russia?

              yeah but where? ive yet to see one, and why would you use a specialized jack for only one type of pallet instead of a standardized commercial forklift.

              Keeps them off the ground in case of water.

              this is my suHispanicion as well, but that would mean they moved all those heavy ass crates one by one, its legitimately absurd to think they would operate like this, a pump jack isn't even expensive or difficult to transport with the rest of your supplies and it makes resupply much faster because you don't have to spend hours doing it by hand

            The rest of the world uses pallets because it lets you use forklifts. Russia literally stacks everything by hand. That amount of ammo could be moved by two forklifts in 20 minutes and a 3 person crew by the rest of the world. For Russia, it would take 20 men hours to do.

            Russian military can't into forklifts. Which is surprising because when I was growing up in that shithole and had to work construction to survive, we had forklifts. They even let me, a 16-year-old, drive it sometimes.

              Forlifts are the boring background instead of flashy superweapons that will destroy west for just the small price of XX billion rubles. In Russian military the most important measure apparently was "can it impress Putin". You can't parade a forklift (well you can, since they can move but that would look too ridiculous) so it doesn't get invested in.
              Compare that to business which actually has to make money.

                To add on to this point there is a decent chance the forklifts you saw working in construction were originally owned by the military. Literally anything they have that can be sold will be, with items useful in the civilian world being top priority since you can just sell them off to your family without any intermediaries like trying to pawn autocannon shells

              Soviet/Russian economy might have been bit less retarded than it has reputation for. Soviet/Russian military on the other hand had endless supply of conscripts to exploit in more than one way. Pocket the budget for forklift and use 40 conscripts for loading work while they should be participating in actual training and as bonus send 5 more conscripts work as rent a boys in the town.

          It might actually be for SPG-9 recoilless rifles. The Russians still issue them to motorized units as company support weapons. And if you think the BMP-1's main gun is obsolete, wait until you see the non-self-propelled version.

    Funny how people are making fun of Russia. Even when the U.S. just spent 20 years in Afghanistan and 11 in Vietnam. Killing Millions of people and leaving when the war wasn't even justified. No weapons of mass destruction and little evidence of the Guld of Tokin. Russia now has 20% of Ukraine, that's 20% they didn't have before. That's pretty good for 7months compared to the U.S. spending 20years in Afghanistan killing Innocent people and spending our own soilders in as cannon fodder.

          Power doesn't mean shit, that's the point. You can try to pound liberal democracy into people's heads as hard as you can, but you can't make them accept it. Afghanistan was a military success, but ONLY a military success. The half-assed nationbuilding of building schools but drone striking weddings was an abysmal failure.

                Asymmetric warfare is what you do when you cannot fight on equal terms. Guerrilla war is what you do when you can't directly engage the enemy without being defeated. Attrition is what you resort to when you can't win a war of maneuver.
                And a generation-long, grinding war of attrition where the losses are heavily weighted against you is something you only attempt if you have literally no other options.
                After 20 years of struggle, blood, and misery the Taliban's multi-generational guerilla campaign inflicted a defeat on the United States which made the average American say "man, Biden's fucking up" before they went back to whatever they were doing. How people interpret this as "haha the US military sucks" is something I don't understand

Not so Russians who tried their best to keep violence going here and bankrolling violent extremists and would be dictators. The USA is far from perfect, the state department should never have been funding pro-abortion campaigns in other nations or classifying sexual identity politics as human rights and stopped executing people itself but no one is perfect.

    found a webm of it dating late april on tbharchive
    pretty sure the reason why neither russia nor ukraine blew it up in a span of 4 months is either
    a) most of the ammo is old and bad
    b) there's so much of it that it would destroy the city as well

      Read the lot numbers on the 60mm and the UN PMCs on the boxes.
      >60mm HE mortar ammo made in Czech Republic in 2016
      The Ammo boxes with the UN HD diamonds on them are Czech made - you can read the 'CZ' country code in the UM Package marking code certification on the boxes, the box certification is 2014 and the ammo in it was made in 2016.
      >"ancient soviet ammo"
      The rest of it probably is, I cant see any lot markings clearly.

Is that what you are saying here this is just another example of completely retarded Russian shit wehere the Russian military sat nailing lits back onto empty crates and stacking a whole building full of them?

          You can already buy castrated Russian conscripts on the darknet for gold because their own military is selling them off to Arabs and claiming they died in Ukraine. The Russian military just does not give a fuck about this war. They are quite expensive to as they are also used for organ harvests. It is teh site that used to sell castrated blacks to Arabs if you know the one. Dispatch is Dagestan

        I do think I had a pretty good idea about the state of training, corruption, especially the vaunted tank reserves which were infact looted scrap yards, and so on, but seriously no fucking pallets? No forklifts? You'd think they'd lobby for some if for no other reason, more efficient stealing.

            Private Conscriptovich says he needs to take a shit while moving boxes from the train to the warehouse
            Sargeant Lugandov says alright and be quick goddamnit
            Private Conscriptovich walks off with the box he was carrying to take his shit, and does not come back with it
            Nobody says anything because everybody honors the "take a shit" excuse for walking off with a box full of loot

            I did this at my job in a retail store once without realizing it. I had a package of Nintendo games in hand while walking past the loading dock, asked my manager if I could get a cigarette from my car. Didn't realize I'd stolen 12 copies of Mario Soccer or what ever the fuck until I got home that night and noticed them in the passenger seat.

          The Ukrainians use pallets in at least some part of their logistical system. They have to, even if it's just so they can move around the aid shipments. Even if that's where it started, they would have immediately picked up on how much it revolutionizes logistics and put it into service wherever they could.

          Even if they don't have western logistics equipment, they have enough manpower to do all the manual labour of handling unpalleted supplies. Just put some barely trained territorial defence to it. Russia doesn't, it has to be done by the same soldiers who are desperately needed at the front.

      It is corned just like gun powder is. By forcing it through a mesh.
      Before people corned gunpowder it would separate on long journeys and fail to ignite.
      By making a paste, then forcing it through a mesh, it stopped this problem. The size of the mesh dictates the grain of the powder.
