Can we give the VDV a break? As far as airborne troops go they’ve got a decent record

      So VDV makes up 10% of confirmed dead. Now how many actually dead Russia has

    The capture of Hostomel was pretty brilliant and one of their most successful operations in the north.
    VDV also captured Nova Khakovka dam via helicopter assault and allowed the Russians to surround and take Kherson and threaten Zaporozhe.
    It's just the rest of the Russian army is a poorly led, disorganized mob.

    No. Goal of VDV and Speznaz was to win war in 2 hours like they did in Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan. Capture/kill enemy leadership, take capital under control in 2 hours after war start, gg wp. This is The Russian Way of War, NAFO trannies are seething, google it.

    But in Ukraine VDV failed to win like that. They had one job. And this is was not airport capture but Zelenskyi capture.
    VDV! Kiai!

    Capturing and objective and failing to hold it until relieved is still a failure

    Why do ziggers insist on fighting these battles over and over again? I think everybody laughing at their fuckups in the early days of the invasion permanently mindbroke you fags to the point where you insist on correcting the record and reminding everybody all over again about how an ostensibly "elite" unit didn't brief its troops on a helicopter assault operation until they were in the fucking helicopters.

    They dropped on it, and they were very promptly killed by territorial defense boomers with AKs before the Ukrainian army was even ready for action.

    >On 24 February 2022, the first day of the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, the airport was attacked and seized by the Russian military. On the day, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said "The enemy paratroopers in Hostomel have been blocked, and troops have received an order to destroy them".[1] Later in the day, between 8-10 PM local time (UTC+2) reports surfaced that the airport had been retaken
    "Captured" a civilian airport for less than 6 hours and then every single Russian died or surrendered. Interesting use of the word "captured"

      reports =/= true. there is no evidence for the vdv being pushed off of the airport

        Besides the fact that they weren’t there anymore? Or the dead bodies? Or satellite footage? Or CNN reports? Or the testimony of captured VDV? Or, again, the simple fact that they do not currently hold it?

      Russia's fantasies are always interesting. Like that propaganda vid about how they could drive all the way to Berlin and conquer most of Europe in a day on the same logic, they could technically deliver the men and material as planned, the propagandists just leave out the part where all their men would be dead by day's end, because Russians don't like to listen to unpleasant truths challenging their delusions of invincibility and strength and they've long given up on facing their own deficiencies when it's easier to cover them up with lies.

    VDV were used as shock troops in a number of conventional ground attacks in the opening month of the war. It's why there are so many photos of annihilated BTR-D columns.

    VDV took Popasna, which was literally the only reason Severodonetsk and Lysychansk fell. They also took most of Soledar this week. Not to mention holding onto Kherson for quite a while until they were told to back off. They are the most competent fighting force in Russia by far.

    For Russians, maybe. Actually functioning non-mongoloids would consider that an irredeemable failure

    Compared to other airborne troops worldwide? No.
    Compared to the rest of the Russian Armed Forces? Absolutely.
    If for no other reason, than the fact they make Prigozhin seethe over the fact they managed in days what he failed to achieve in months.
