    So they wasted 100+ $25 million missiles on a few thousand dollars worth of plywood decoys? Fricking morons, if they were real there would have be significant fire damage not a few smudges from burnt wood.

        fuel is free in russia so thats a non issue
        trucks arent thats a problem but its not like they are extremely expensive.

        >we don't need to store our fuel
        aircraft fuel is fricking expensive and it takes a while to refine more than regular fuel. Destroying any sort of fuel storage will result in delays in operations unless they have another fuel site that they can use. Aside from that, you can't fully utilize aircraft without available fuel.
        >b-but gas is cheap
        Where do they store the fuel, moron? If you destroy the fuel storage in a gas station, that gas station is fricking gone regardless of how many trucks of gas comes though.

          Jesus frick but you're moronic. Jet fuel is just kerosene, it pops out of the fractioning tower and gets piped straight to the nearest airfield. Gasoline is significantly more expensive to produce, and lubricants are even more expensive yet.

            Its possible he's thinking of the fuel used in reciprocating engine prop planes, but its still an idiot take.
            Honestly its probably not that hard to truck it in to base for refueling aircraft, it just adds to logistic loads.

      • 1 month ago
        Anonymous

        Because satellite visibility is only a snapshot of a day. It is possible that you take a picture of something and the thing you want to hit has moved. Therefore there is no need to cover it up with a tent that will reduce your reaction time if you need to get them in the air. Every strike is backed up by somebody visually confirming they're there in close to real time, not going off what a satellite says. Satellite will say 'yeah they are using this base and aircraft are there' but it won't say which bay they're in. Of course, you can ask a satellite to look at a place in real time but that is something that likely Ukraine doesn't have the ability to do without the US going 'Okay we'll do it'. All these images we have are private ones where anybody can buy images of at certain dates, so Ukraine isn't going off these images.

    Me pointing out is a comedy sketch is me pointing out it is a comedy sketch. Don't get mad with me, get mad with yourself falling for a subtitled comedy sketch that isn't, you know, mistranslated. It is accurate and is very obviously a comedy sketch as I explained

    I mean, it is a comedy sketch but it is played just straight enough that they don't get fricked for the crime of insulting glorious military. But it is very clearly meant to be OTT and mocking the idea that Russia would want to invade. It is mocking Europe/NATO for being afraid of Russia by going
    >Haha yeah that is totally what we're going to do, we'll be sailing up the Thames in a month! Haha! Silly NATO you really think we'd do this but at the same time achieving it with our silly WW2 maps and stuff haha.
    It mocking the reaction of Europe where they think Russia is some all conquering gigapower but played straight enough that they're not going to get fricked.
