          the BMP-3 is another can of worms, i LIKE the idea of a 100mm cannon that could even be used for indirect fire at a pinch, but it just turns the vehicle into a powder keg, not unlike the turret tossing tanks, besides a larger turret for the BMP-1 is not an option, the turret ring is just too small, what both russia and Ukraine have done to some BMP-1s, putting a 30mm autocannon turret on it, there are some modern unmanned models but you can also place a BMD-2 turret on the vehicle if you dont have anything better

            yeah i've come to a similar conclusion, beyond RUSSIAN EQUIPMENT BAD. You simply can't build an IFV or APC that has a large gun while maintaining sufficient protection and crew/passenger survivability alongside the speed and range that should be expected from such a vehicle. You're either carrying a tiny ammo load or more or less guaranteeing a hit results in a catastrophic explosion.

            If you want a light tank, build a light tank (or assault gun or whatever the army is calling the M10). If you want an IFV, build an IFV.

            >who's gonna putin successor btw?
            Unironically? Medvedev. The guys has the most "legitimacy", as in the eyes of the russian deep state, because of his previous tenure at the president's post. His current rants right now is to make him look like a clown and not a potential candidate, so that he looks harmless before putin, but once the actual fight for the throne starts he'll be the first among others.

            Iron Dima has little to no support base, he's just a court jester like most others in the far right. He has extreme opinion and Putin goes with something less extreme than that and appears to be moderate and measured in his approach then. as

            >Medvedev was presented as a technocrat in favor of dialogue with the West
            Yes. There were two candidates before putin: medvedev the cuck and ivanov (the defense minister at a time) as the kgb hawk, ivanov fell out of favor because of scandals in the army (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beating_of_Andrey_Sychyov).

            Czar monke decided to sit out in the prime minister chair, as to not obviously break the law on term limits, but got ass blasted because of Libya and decided to get back into power, thinking that medvedev isn't tough enough to handle things and putin would get gaddafied (knife into anus) if he doesn't get back to direct rule. Czar monke's return to presidency had been followed by a mini-purge of medvedev-aligned people from the government.

            >I assumed his current jingoist ramblings are aimed at reversing that image among russians so nobody would suspect him of being pro-West these days
            That's a part of it. He's the most obvious successor, but if he's seen as such (e.g. people start to visibly amass around him in the background of the russian deep state), he'll get instantly gulaged despite being super-loyal to putin (that's the chief reason he was placed in the president's seat, he was putin's b***h boy for decades). Thus, he needs to play the role of a clown, as to preventively discredit himself. "No, I'm not a viable alternative to putin", "No, I won't be able to be a better president, who'll get normal relations with the west when putin dies" and so on.

            This is kinda what Khruschev did while under Stalin: he played a role of the clown in Stalin's court, as the red neck funny guy from Ukraine, while waiting for the old gay to kick the bucket.

            said it's a classic boyar humiliation ritual strategy for political survival.

      BMPs are so shit, so unarmored, and so ineffective as offensive units that Mobiks refuse to ride INSIDE them, least of all because they are cramped to the point even a Mobik finds them tortuous, and more importantly, the seats double as fuel tanks meaning that whenever the non-existent armor gets punctured by literally anything, you'll burn alive before you can exit your burning coffin.

      It's not a new phenomenon, it was a thing since its introduction, you can see it on footage of Soviet forces in Afghanistan. The uparmoring of the top is just the logical (in a russian's mind) conclusion (because smelting them and making a better APC is not an option).

            EFPs can be made in a size which you can't realistically deliver via shoulder-fired weapon or drone-dropped. And when made in smaller sizes they were often daisy-chained which meant potential for multi-hits.
            A Stryker's armor would be hopeless at trying to stop this, yeah it's understandable that crews were trying to increase their survivability in an environment where the insurgency could implement a weapon that would be nearly impossible to deploy in actual near-peer warfare.

                If fricking jihadis could lay those in Afghanistan while facing the USAF and all the drones and recon and surveillance the US and half of its NATO allies could have in the air and on the ground, you can do the same in a high intensity war where you have a formal official military force behind you.

                A lot of them were locals paid off to do insurgent activity. The entire point of an insurgency is doing things against the background noise and normalcy of everyday life. The complex nature of the GWOT has been debated ad infinitum on /k/ for over a decade, try to keep up.
                There's a big difference between the busy streets of a town where hundreds to thousands of peple are hanging around and doing their daily tasks and the greyzone where no soul would ever have any worthwhile reason to be there unless they're military.

                >And FPV drones are still not a main threat compared to artillery.
                That's great. Even if hit by an artillery shell, the FPVs and nade droppers will come to mop up the survivors. If your opponent is low on artillery shells, he'll slam an FPV into you and save the shells for a much bigger assault.
                So what's your focus? The shit that's never gonna happen? Or the situation you KNOW you will find yourself in when you drive across that grey zone?

        And that is exactly why they strapped the wood logs to the sides of the BMP, if the munition missed the rubber mats on top and hit the sides, the logs would save the vehicle, checkmate.

          There was a video maybe a week back where a BPM drives over a mine, blows up catastrophically, and the driver manages to run away. I mean he probably still died due to his injuries but it was crazy that he wasn't blown to shreds. It looked like the whole back of the vehicle got blasted to bits. They are weird vehicles and sometimes you get lucky.

        Tree trunks do weird stuff with projectiles. I recall seeing a vid where a guy was shooting different calibers at a medium/large trunk and for some reason 308 didn't pen, but 5.45/5.56 did. Also, you have to have a thick as hell of a tree to actually do anything meaningful, and the circular profile of a log isn't ideal for creating any coherent protection unless you make it into a plank. But at that point you are better off using any other material than wood, lol.

        This is not the same video but it had similar results.

          The big issue with Putin is that if he dies, suddenly Russia is legitimately beheaded because he's been centralizing power for a while.
          Worst case scenario?, USSR collapse Part Two with some poor Outer Ruski states literally secedding out of hope that they might be able to rejoin the world's economy by completely abandoning any major association with what's left of Russia. It's not like the Kremlin is going to attack anyways, everything's out in the west to defend it from Ukrainians and NATO aid. Even if the NATO attack never comes. Which will likely be the case.

          Unironically? Medvedev. The guys has the most "legitimacy", as in the eyes of the russian deep state, because of his previous tenure at the president's post. His current rants right now is to make him look like a clown and not a potential candidate, so that he looks harmless before putin, but once the actual fight for the throne starts he'll be the first among others.

              >Medvedev was presented as a technocrat in favor of dialogue with the West
              Yes. There were two candidates before putin: medvedev the cuck and ivanov (the defense minister at a time) as the kgb hawk, ivanov fell out of favor because of scandals in the army (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beating_of_Andrey_Sychyov).

              Czar monke decided to sit out in the prime minister chair, as to not obviously break the law on term limits, but got ass blasted because of Libya and decided to get back into power, thinking that medvedev isn't tough enough to handle things and putin would get gaddafied (knife into anus) if he doesn't get back to direct rule. Czar monke's return to presidency had been followed by a mini-purge of medvedev-aligned people from the government.

              >I assumed his current jingoist ramblings are aimed at reversing that image among russians so nobody would suspect him of being pro-West these days
              That's a part of it. He's the most obvious successor, but if he's seen as such (e.g. people start to visibly amass around him in the background of the russian deep state), he'll get instantly gulaged despite being super-loyal to putin (that's the chief reason he was placed in the president's seat, he was putin's b***h boy for decades). Thus, he needs to play the role of a clown, as to preventively discredit himself. "No, I'm not a viable alternative to putin", "No, I won't be able to be a better president, who'll get normal relations with the west when putin dies" and so on.

              This is kinda what Khruschev did while under Stalin: he played a role of the clown in Stalin's court, as the red neck funny guy from Ukraine, while waiting for the old gay to kick the bucket.

              Both of those things are so that he doesn't tower over little manlet Putin (who will never learn).
              It's arguably an act of submission though it sure doesn't look that way does it. You'll see him always doing things like this in pictures with Putin to avoid looking dominant or threatening. "Confident and Grateful Partner" is the look he's going for.

              You're forgetting yourself. This is Europe's proxy war, it's not just about Ukraine. And Europe both supported you after 9/11 (in fact, Article 5 was invoked) and supported the USD as a global currency. By playing games with support for Ukraine you've definitely entered the Frick Around phase, if you enter the Find Out phase we'll simply deal with puccia ourselves (very harshly, in ways unimaginable to you, without any concern for their stability or your status quo-related woes), maybe drop the USD as the standard we help to enforce (which will make you poor compared to what you are now within a couple of decades), and ultimately offer you our thoughts and prayers when you inevitably go to war with China (because frankly, we don't have a reason to care - Europe's security has always been about puccia and North Africa/Middle Easy, we just don't have any real interests in the Pacific). Tread carefully, because as it stands, your country is the party that has been getting shit for free.

                I don't think any consequences Europe imposes on the US will be dramatic, aside from making russia's collapse inevitable. If Europe goes this route, it'll probably be more like a growing disengagement because we simply don't have much in common beyond some trade and economic stuff anymore.

                The whole premise of Pax Americana was "we provide free trade and security and you help us in our expeditionary wars and actively help us maintain the USD status". This deal is shit without the "security" part, and America is actively sabotaging it by refusing to seriously support Ukraine.

                It's not about morals or honor either, the shit Americans pulled (and keep pulling) is forcing Europe to spend more on military affairs. Sure, we can do it, but it fricking sucks, and the price will be that going forward, Americans we'll have less of a voice when it comes to European matters.

                I mean once we deal with puccia, what's the reason to ever listen to what Americans have to say, especially after they've proven they're not a reliable ally? There's no reason, just offer USD weaker support to avoid rocking the boat, maintain trade relations, and completely disregard everything Americans want or need beyond that.

The Ukrainians can use their weapons (that they pay for) how they want. If they don't want strings attached, fork out the money. If these strings are killing Ukrainians it just goes to show that the Ukrainian leader loves money more than he loves his people.

      According to the latest polls Biden has taken the lead albeit very slightly. All I'm saying is that if Trump winning and cutting aid was my only hope there would be a lot of what ifs making me nervous.

      Prisoners and 3rd worlders anyway, didn't need them. Btw this is helping eliminate russias unemployment and less mouth to feed. While expensive western missiles and shells are wasted on rusty junk, whole legions of brand new tanks and BMPs are being made for the final offensive push that will break the Kiev's criminal puppet government

      Same as it was after the goodwill gesture at Kiev. They hope that the aid will stop, that the willingness of the Ukrainian population to resist (i.e, you'll have revolts saying we don't want to fight any more), that the West (mainly USA and UK) will demand Ukraine surrender because fighting is taking too much time/money/death/more pressing matters. Or, they manage to grab their 'annexed' regions and then to just do their never ending minefield pancakes and go

      From our point of view, the war looks like an unwinnable total disaster for russia. But you must understand that putin is a boomer sociopath who doesn't know how computers work and receives all his info in a carefully curated folder.
      Before Ukraine received military aid in April and conducted mobilization, it looked like his plan was perfectly working and Ukraine might collapse in 2024. Avdiivka was lost only because of the ammo shortage caused by Trump and his milk fed gimp Johnson. It looked like Kharkiv offensive would collapse the front for good.
      Now the scales tipped in Ukraine's favour hard, hundreds of ATACAMs, powerful sanctions, Ukraine can officially hit russian territory, fresh recruits etc. It made putin reshuffle his staff which he hates, he rarely fires anyone. I think putin snapped back to reality and realized that his resources are dwindling. He replaced shoigu with an economist who will restructure military budged, and put his relatives to keep the military in check.
      I guess Trump is his last hope. It's either total Trump victory or US civil war. If nothing of this happens, he'll probably start negotiating.

        A thing I wondering about (which we might learn years after the fact) is how much of the Russian decision-making in the beginning resulted from being lied to by displaced Ukrainian elites like Yanukovych. This... has happened before. It actually happened to the U.S. in Vietnam. There was a minority of Christian Vietnamese who had been involved in French colonial administration, and U.S. policymakers got most of their information about what was going on from them, but these people were completely lying because they desperately wanted the U.S. to intervene (for obvious reasons, they were the local upper class compradors the communists were out to liquidate).

        Almost the exact same thing happened to the Soviets in Afghanistan too. The Parcham faction which was favored by the Soviets sold the intervention as a quick in-out operation, but they were saying this because they desperately needed constant support to stay in power, but if they had told any of that to the Soviets, they would have never intervened, so they just lied. And then after a bit of intervention it was hard to not intervene a bit more without losing face, and the rest is history.

          I kind of doubt it. From the sources I trust (nothing on the "inside", just people in RU segment of internet who have a good forecast record), I heard that the initial decision-making was mostly driven by, funnily, Covid.
          Because of the pandemic, which was taken very seriously in Russia, Putin was very isolated and refused to physically meet most of his cabinet, except the very very essential people. Which just happened to be the FSB and security ones, because these are the most essential members of government for a dictator. Which just happened to be, coincidentally, the most hawkish and conservative members of government.
          Once you take a guy who is already getting senile and has a predilection for "righting historic wrongs", put him in physical proximity to even more hawkish fricks, and let that situation stew for a few years, thoughts about easy victories start to appear.

        Israel sold the drones Russia used to invade Crimea and also disabled the drones Georgia had purchased when they got invaded by Russia.
        Russia also makes lots of deals with Israel that are to its benefit.
        I’m not confident at all they would be hard on Russia.
        They would probably be more eager to tariff the EU in retaliation for ICC rulings than working with them on Russia.

    Could go either way tbh. The handsome generals will tell him "Sir, if Putin takes over our ally on your watch you're going to look like a loser." and Trump in the first term really did allow the military and intel agencies to continue pursuing their goals without any real pushback. If every other week the news headlines boil down to "Russia takes another major city, America gets owned again" he will have to somehow control the narrative. He also sees himself as a master dealmaker, so he might pursue some peace deal. The problem here is that there's no conceivable deal that would allow both Putin and Trump to sell as a win to their base.

    Clearly, at some point Putin told him to bend the knee and he said no. Otherwise, there would be no need for an invasion.

      Invasion sarted with VDV and Riot police trying to get to Kyiv, original goal would be to get in the capital with no resistance, and then deal with protesters, and people in the government and military who could be problematic (in the territories they got by jumping them, they started to target Donbass vets first thing first, obviously they could find some of them from the locals etc. but that was a systematic thing, they had to get the names and adresses from somewhere).

      Zelensky himself denied the possability of the invasion to the very end, despide US inteligence telling him atleast 2 times, and his whole idea of Rus-Uki relationships was "we need to sell out military, destroy minefields, and just be friends".

      For years his main bussiness was traveling to russia and making jokes about stupid hohols, And people he brought to the government are appropriately same moronic soviet lumpen that he is, who behave towards the people and the army accordingly, and are no better than the russian yesmen that sit in russian government.

          this is pure cope. it was very painfully obvious at the time he was in full denial. Off ramp would be denying possibility for war openly but conducting covert mobilization under the excuse of miltiary excercises and prepping defensive positions like minefields in expected invasion vectors. Exactly like finns did before the winter war

          He fricked up and was in denial until the very last moment. simple as. What came really as a surprise was a comedian turning into a effective war time leader overnight.

            I mean ukraine was recruiting training and mobilizing consistently from the 2014 seizure of crimea. They knew shit was coming and the donbas shit drove that point home. The issue is even at the start of the SMO there were still traitors in Ukraine. Any thought of covert mobilizations is infantile because it would have been very not covert as compromised as they were. And really the lack of hard defenses probably contributed to Russia's failure more than minefields did. Defense in depth and asymmetrical strikes were exactly what was needed in the opening months, allow Russia to exceed their nonexistant logistics rather than hold them and allow them to switch to artillery grind mode.

          Russia is honor culture not shame culture you dumb idiot. Why do you open your mouth when you don't know the basics?

            Russia is fear culture, Russians understand neither honor nor shame.

              And the things a fear culture responds best to are direct threats backed up by actual power and willingness to use it. If you give Russia an off-ramp, the lesson they'll take from it is that you fear them = Russia stronk.

            Japs are honor culture and they're literally the opposite of russians.

              Japs are the most stereotypical shame culture there is. Read the actual sociology on honor culture and shame culture instead of just being an American and thinking in nominalist terms.

        Because he was trying to give them an off-ramp while the US made it clear that this was not cool.
        It's a face-saving exercise, which (in theory) is how you deal with shame based cultures like Russia etc.

        It was a rational play at the time.

        >Because he was trying to give them an off-ramp
        Whichever happened, we can probably agree that he had a come-to-jesus moment somewhere in there.

        Whether this was always an attempt to keep Russia onside to avoid further invasions or whether it was a self-delusional belief that he was cool with Russia until US told him to wake the frick up...we'll probably never know.
        Maybe when some whitehouse memoir comes out or something, assuming it's not full of bullshit.

    I hope for Russian collapse too, but it's gonna be a living hell for Russians until it stabilizes back. And I mean way worse than the usual Russian helllife.

      Actually that's the normal way collapse happens, both in nature and for humanity's works: very slowly, and then all of a sudden and unexpectedly.

        When we're talking about Russian collapse, it's probably better to say chaotically or unpredictably rather than unexpectedly. It's definitely expected, just not going to happen in a predictable way or at a predictable time. The event is predictable though.

    Did he actually say that'd he'd do it, or you just jacking off to party politics while watching a cartelina take a machete to your daughter's neck? The US has enough money and power to keep both border held. If we have to compromise between two politicians who will give us one but not the other, we should be shooting politicians until we get a replacement who does what we want.

      Yes, in nearly every campaign "speech" he's made for the past several months. He regularly says he will stop the Ukraine war in 24 hours by sitting down with monke and negotiating just how much of Ukraine vatBlack folktan gets to stop shooting. Turn the news on some time, this is not something recent or a one-off.
