    Do they have fuses?

    Having bombs exposed to the elements in general isnt safe, but most of the danger lies in the degradation making it unsuitable for firing safely. To a lesser extent there is a real physical risk that some event (lightning, rogue recon drone crashing, derailment) could set them off.

    Would a small mortar shell dropped from a drone be enough to make this go boom

      If they were dumb enough to transport them with the fuses intact, rounding a corner to fast and having them bump into the wall could set them off.
      I imagine a small mortar bomb could set the whole thing off, but it depends on the type of explosive that is in the bomb being bombed.

    Safe? No. There's no safe way to transport explosive munitions during wartime.
    Cheap and practical? Yes.

    Safe, sure, an absolute pain in the ass to load and unload though, wouldn’t it literally take a crane to get them out?

    With the fuses out that isn't a big deal at all, that said Russia doesn't use insensitive munitions so sympathetic detonation of the whole train is possible if it's hit. The same would be true if they were inside containers or on flatbeds.

    I imagine the walls are thicker on gravel/material transport carts than other options.

    It was also probably a camouflage technique of some kind. No one would expect it.

    Unloading may be slow, but not unloading it by hand slow. A couple 10k excavators would have no problem emptying them out with one man in the box.

    Most likely just cheap and practical

    I relative of mine told me that during harvests in Soviet Union it was impossible to get railcarts for factories because the standard box carts got repurposed for grain transport as there were not enough dedicated wagons

      Is the modern Russian economy still centralized, albeit less than the soviet union?

      • 4 weeks ago

        No. The problem is they don't produce enough bearings and cassettes to actually maintain their existing traincarts. Only something like 30% of the cassettes for normal carts and NONE for heavy-duty transport carts are produced within Russia.

    Sanctions work, they just take a while. Between a lack of parts and too much military use, the train cars Russia needs are dropping lie flies. In this case it is mostly bearings for the train cars that are problematic for Russia They stopped being produced and sold in May and now Russia has to start the standard options: Reduce unnecessary usage, use alternatives, cannibalize and consolidate reserves, build local alternatives, and import whatever they can. Russia can't make them easily, they can't really use roads as an alternatives for freight, and can't really import them easily so they're stuck cannibalizing and consolidating like OP Picrel. You can tell it is a problem, because Russia showed desperation in trying to get the specific sanction reversed. Right now they can find alternatives, because their exports are stagnant, they can do things like pull ore carriages. If it gets bad enough, they might start having trouble getting food and goods around the country and might even have to slow military equipment to avoid damaging the economy too badly. This was part of what happened in 1917. Too much rolling stock went to military use and people starved because they couldn't get bread into cities.

      Retard. It's the dumbass stacking and the fact that they're forced to use open dry good wagons instead of proper boxcars or flatcars. That means they're running short on working box- and flatcars.

        You know that's not about lack of flatcars, yeah? They use boxcars to conceal stuff, just like they were evacuating dozens of freshly fucked up BMD's after muh tactical Kyiv goodwill gesture.

            Conceal from their compatriots, not from HATO. You are clueless abt russian vranyo culture.

              You're still retarded. If they want to conceal ordnance, a fucking closed-top boxcar is the right answer.
