              The fact a pissant little airforce like Ukraine's is still able to do literally anything at all this far into the conflict is a damning indictment of Russia's air control. If they can't successfully "deny" a few SU-24s what chance do they stand against the largest and most modern air force in the world? Why is the bar so fricking low for Russian shills that anything other than a total Ukrainian victory in every field immediately is enough for them to call it a win? It's pathetic.

          absolute dinosaur mentaility. should we abandon the tank because there are atgms everywhere? or maybe we should stop sending soldiers into battle because the enemy has so much artillery and they can kill us? its so funny to listen to the reasons why the offensive failed from guys who were actually there and your conclusion is that they dont actually know how to fight correctly. small drones have completely changed warfare, forever, and everyone not currently using them in a giant war is behind in a big way.

            Given the massive information advantage, the moment any Russian troops, vehicle, or armament crosses the border Russia is met with missile strikes in its staging areas, an immediate SEAD/DEAD campaign combined with tactical and strategic bombing, artillery strikes, air interdiction, and naval operations. It's also highly likely NATO will do the same to Kaliningrad to prevent its garrison from doing anything.

      This. If any amount if NATO troops are stationed inside your country for the explicit purpose if defending against a Russian invasion, and you are yourself a NATO member, Russia will not successfully invade you. The US called Russia on their troop build up a hilariously kong time before they invaded Ukraine. There is absolutely no reason--especially NOW--that NATO wouldn't immediately deploy forces to match Russia's. As we've seen in Ukraine, our tech and our competency is so profoundly vastly superior to the Russoid's barbarian ways that it would be like blasting Zulu spear chuckers with machine guns. The disparity in quality, particularly after Russia's losses in Ukraine, is simply too profound.

      Any shenanigans by Russia in the baltics would be fear mongering and empty bullshit threats. I wish a Black person would, with all my heart, but unfortunately I won't get to see NATO massacre Russian convict soldiers while nuclear fire rains down on their cities in my lifetime.

      The Baltics are the LEAST Eurofied. They actually invest well above the NATO mandated 2% GDP into their defense and have contingencies in place for mass conscription and mobilization in the event of invasion. And invest in asymmetric capabilities like SF and militia that can act as guerilla fighters.

      At the very least, they hole up in the cities and continue to be a thorn in Russia's side for months on end, if Mariupol is any indication.

    Keep in mind that each of the Baltic countries are not only smaller than even Finland but also don't have the geographic advantage of Finland. Countries like Estonia have a very large portion of the population who are Russian speaking and thus very likely to contain fifth columnists. The one advantage they do have is that with Sweden and Finland in NATO all you have to do is park anti-ship missile batteries and ships on both sides of the baltic sea and unless if Russia manages to systemetically destroy the defenses on both sides shipping to St. Petersburg is fricked.

    Keep in mind that it's their inclusion into NATO that made Putin incredibly assmad to this day.
    They were prime targets for the operation of forcefully dragging them back under Russia's influence. Now that they're in NATO that's an impossibility as long as the US, the UK and France are in it.

    This isn't Ukraine where a fait accompli would have worked. NATO will just refuse to accept it and then take back the baltics, eject the Russians. Then it might be status quo ante bellum with more sanctions or we'd have the nukes start flying. But NATO/EU is not going to sit on its ass while a member state is dismembered.

    So the question is less can Russia take the baltic and more can Russia hold the baltic. And no, they cannot.

                Nice deflection, Rajesh.
                I don't support every american intervention ever but I do support a large military. That however isnt what is being discussed so it's irrelevant.
                "Well america shouldn't spend THAT much!" wasn't your initial argument and doesnt adress my answer to your question about why Americans should care about the security of the European continent.
                It seems you're now just trying to move the goalposts and shift the discussion away to military spending in general.

      Lmao NATO isn't going to naval invade Riga to evict the Russians. Mass combat like that isn't in NATO's doctrine; in the 2018 field exercises NATO employed tactical nukes to stop Russian columns because it's casualty- and risk-averse.
      A NATO reclamation would be from airbases in Germany, Poland, and Sweden bombing the shit out of the Russian positions and logistics until a troop of boy scouts with sticks could walk in and take the place.

        Sure, that's the same end result though - NATO won't tolerate Russian fait accompli on a member. By army, or by air force, or by nook ook ook, they're not going to accept any little nibble. The bigger 'risk' is that Russia would just be willing to endlessly attrition-war so at some point you would have to send in ground troops because all the jdams and air support in the world won't be able to get all the disgusting little verminous lice out of Riga or wherever. And short of an iron curtain of firepower they'll keep shoving in mobiks.

        >you have to have a redline somewhere
        Yeah and it's the mid-Atlantic. Why the frick should any American care about the security of the European continent? A 'redline' in the Baltics is for German national security, and that's a country doing its level best to committ suicide every day.

        Beyond the wider considerations of security and economics and all I just fricking hate Russians and I like humans like Europeans, man. If savages want to behave like savages then I look forward to them being killed until they crawl back to their holes or behave like civilized peoples, whether that is ISIS or Russia.

    Russia attacked Ukraine, because they're not in the EU and the they're not in NATO. That's it. It's that simple. Russia knew that the second Ukraine joins a defensive pact with any western force, it's over.

    That's the same reason why they will never ever attack the baltics, Poland, Sweden or Finland. It's suicide.

            All 3 had forest brothers and that is not the reason. Three Baltic countries are pretty similar in size but population was different. Lithuania had the highest population so they didnt need to bring in so much russian labor to work in factories. Also big difference is that Lithuania communist party leader Snieckus didnt want to import in so many russian labor so they didnt. When Russians wanted to move to Baltics they usualy went to Latvia or Estonia because they were more modern and had more contact with the western world. You could smuggle or buy western things in these countries pretty easly.

          Latvia and Estonia were relatively well industrialized and had developed ports, Lithuania not so much.
          Lithuania was much more successful in resisting Soviet pressure partially because of this.
          Latvian communists were the most open to Soviet migration as a lot of them were related to Latvian Red Riflemen and had been some of the few survived Stalinist purges. It was accelerated when the National Communist wing of the Latvian Communist Party was crushed through political subterfuge, leaving pro-Kremlin stooges in power until from late 1950s through 1980s

To be fair there is some logic there but I don't think they were that cheap either. They were bought from the brits and completely refurbished. Some got spike atgms aswell. Best part is that apparently the ammo for the 30mm cannons isnt manufactured anymore so there are plans to build a ammo factory.

          It's literally JUST the CVRT's, other then that most of our purchases make sense. The Austrian M109's are not Pzh2000's, sure, but they're still solid, western guns, and we got a shitton of them for cheap. The whole Patria 6x6 program is a great future investment (to be fair the 4x4 technical tender was a complete shitshow, but that ended up being nothing). HIMARS, IRIS-T's, JSM's, Black Hawks, all solid choices. Maybe that weird light scout aircraft we got (pic rel), or our new MoD talking about armed light helicopters, those are weird. But not stupid.
          Where our moronation excels is outside the fun military procurement. National Guard is still running around with AK-4's, years after being promised G36's, training munitions frick the guns over time, and let's not forget the 200mil food scheme lmao.

    Russian military vehicle attrition isn't a meme. They are still stuck in Ukraine, pulling ~1200 tanks from storage per year and reportedly producing ~200 tanks/year. All of these going straight to Ukraine. To open up a front in the Baltics/Poland, they'd need to wrap up in Ukraine within 1-2 years (not really credible) or increase the demothballing rate of stored tanks and send the increase to the new front. Same goes for IFVs. Either way, whatever vehicle numbers they'd manage to bring to this new front, it wouldn't be anything impressive enough anymore for even Balts+Poles alone on the defence to handle.
    Also, while this isn't Finland's maze of forests and lakes, it's still forests and bogs compared to just 1000kms of plains in Eastern Ukraine. Go look at a satellite view of Baltics and then Ukraine.
    A mechanized blitzkrieg of Baltics isn't in Russia's capabilities anymore.
    NATO has troops inside the region already and the numbers are being increased. Russia would try and bomb their own cities at the start, to make it look like Balts fired first and thus "haha, Balts can't use Article 5 as it is only in case of defence, but they started it". Needless to say, this wouldn't fly. Even ordinary people in Europe don't believe Russia anymore after 2 years of this, let alone NATO military command. A non-USA defence scenario might have some possibility of happening if Trump wins and China attacks Taiwan at the same time. But a scenario where European countries wouldn't join is now just a vatnik fantasy.

    >there will be minefields deployed - and they worked miracles so far
    this, ukraine has shown us that there is no counter to mines. mine plows are a joke and dont work on a basic technical level and those line charge throwers dont throw far enough and no one has them in meaningful numbers.

      The counter is to send more men and vehicles unironically, russia is working on it's production and fixing critical issues within their military structure. There's nothing stopping them from trying something after a few years of buildup (assuming success in ukraine ofc).

    Competent? Very especially more than Russia. Large? Even including reserves they are quite small but they could probably hold off the Russians with the other NATO troops already there long enough to survive. Speaking to guys in the Lithuanian and Estonian militaries they have training and equipment about as good as the Americans and better than a lot of NATO militaries. I know especially their recon and scouts units are really good. They have reserves as well but there quality is less. Anecdotally I can say at least the Lithuanian military is fairly professional and one of the better pound for pound armies in NATO. But I'm just a moron on /k/.

    don't US isolationists understand that they will come for you eventually if not kept in check? They aren't even particularly hiding it, never were.

      The only thing they understand is that the number on those random paychecks marked "baHK POCCNN" gets bigger the louder they are.

      We should be able to defend without US. The US should be there only balance the scale for Russia to not consider attacking at all and help with faster and less bloody victory in case Monke is stupid enough.

      If you're a foreigner you should understand that Americans think they're invincible, above all constraints and rules that can bring down or damage a country which means that if say, the whole planet were to burn except the United States, they wouldn't understand how that would harm the United States.
