    Is the refinery exploding loudly or quietly?

      >How come only answer Russians have FOR EVERY IS FRICKING COPE CAGE
      Probably because Ukraine's answer to Russians existing is to fly explosive aircraft into them.
      The solution isn't ideal but it's apparently the best Russia has.

      Because deep down the average Russian yearns to be caged.

      Because that actually requires money and that money can be better spent on caviar and designer watches for oligarchs.

    Tovarich, football (the real one, not the advertiseeggball abortion) has goals with nets behind them. Putting up nets will only encourage the ukies to score more.

    Not very. Cope cages work when the target itself is sufficiently heavily armored that the increased standoff distance diffuses the penetrating ability of the warhead below the armor rating. Refinery reactors and distillation towers are pretty tough (they'e dealing with some pretty toxic shit, sometimes at high pressure), but not *that* tough, and their function depends on lots and lots of not-very-tough-at-all equipment that's bolted to them. Additionally, if the warhead pops a line full of something flammable (i.e. damned near every line in the refinery) or disables a few valves, then it doesn't matter how tough the casing is, the fricker is gonna yiff in hell.

      This gives me an idea for a warhead.
      Something like a bomb-pumped multibarrel dragon-breath shotgun.

      Maybe a dozen barrels firing simple carbon steel APFSDS with magnesium fins or something, the magnesium is ignited by the propelling explosion and the carbon steel can generate sparks when punching through steel or aluminium vessels or pipes.
      Orient them so as to project in a forward cone from the aircraft with a radio or laser rangefinder as the proximity fuze.

    moron here

    they surrounded like 30% of the tower with concrete walls

    why didn't they just surround 100%?

      I do wonder if this thinking is going to influence future refinery builds. We might see them armoured in any country likely to experience warfare, asymmetric warfare or terrorism.
      Even if you're building something in Texas, terrorists (OPEC sponsored or just Islamic), cartel extortion or Russian agents performing sabotage (see France recently) are all possible threats.

      That said, presumably there are existing pipes and things that prevent them covering that side, or they thought that it wasn't going to be a viable attack vector given local geography or obstacles.

          You still don't want your refinery blown up by some random Serbian with a German passport who bought a flight to Texas, taped an M-80 to a soupcan of tannerite with a few ball bearings and some aluminum shavings, strapped the whole thing onto a drone from walmart and landed it on a refinery tower before fricking off back to his Russian handlers in Europe.

          You're assuming it's expected to be totally effective. Defences rarely are.
          Turn your question around and ask: does this make the existing attack less likely to succeed?
          The answer is probably yes.
          So ask what else they could do that would be more effective and once you have identified something, ask whether it's mutually exclusive with this?
          Russia isn't short of people, they can do more than one thing. They do appear to be low on air defence though.

      You want to fly under a grate less than 1m high and pull a sharp 90d turn into zoom climb while under fire from guards?

      That's impossible! Even for a computer.

    Not at all. Literally fly above it, and release a thermite charge that lights as it falls. It'll melt through the cables, snapping them, roast through the outer containment holders, and straight up ignite everything.

    It is highly effective. Russia should definitely spend more resources on this. Furthermore covering a refinery in car windows will make them invisible to drones.
