What are they up to?

Assisting their Moldovan brothers in dealing with the blight of Transnistria
1. Getting rid of all their old soviet junk as it's starting to reach end of life. They retired their Mig 21 fleet this month, being the last operators of it in Europe. I'm guessing they're splurging big bucks on top-tier new stuff because it'll be cheaper in the long term if it can all last for another 30-40 years.
2. This guy has it right:
When the war in Ukraine finally concludes with an inevitable collapse of the Russian state, it'll be time to anschluss Moldova. Doing so will involve helping Moldova get rid of the Russian puppet republic in Transnistria.
Haha I don't think you understand the point of NATO, lol. If somebody starts chimping out like that they get slapped.
We're at a weird moment in history because 80% of the world's nations were once armed with Russian weapons but they're finally rusting into oblivion
Anyone who can, buys American, but otherwise it seems that France, South Korea and Turkey are taking up the slack, and oddly enough China isn't - they'd be the natural successor to the Soviets arming the world but for the most part they just don't, their massive arms industry almost solely exists for the use of the PLA
When Transistria started agitating last summer both Ukraine and Romania moved forces real close and stated that they will not allow Moldova to be Crimea'd.
I was getting hard for that front to be opened but of course it petered out again
Maybe when the taiwan shit starts in earnest transsistria will kick off too, would be laff
Transnistria will never open up.
Belgorod just did, though. That might be fun.
They're surrounded by hostile countries with no way of receiving supplies or military support. They're in an even worse spot than kaliningrad.
Transnistria has no actual chance of attacking anyone, and nobody wants to attack them either.
It will peter out through political means, same as Moldova.
they just read the fine print on their NATO membership paperwork and they don't want to get a knock on their credit report
They actually stole them from Ukraine shipment, but now they need to place an order so it doesn't look weird if they have some.
does romania even border ukraine?
Yes. Theres moldova (and tranzania) wedged between them, but theres on small part of border betweem moldova and black sea on the south , and very long border between hungary and moldova on the north
Anywa, i do hope tranzania gets deleted from the map
I meant Romania, not Moldova (I know they speak the same but still)
We've had 54 HIMARS for years now. That order was fullfiled a long time ago. We're also buying F-35s. Militarisation is going well, our prime minister is also an army general so the budget got approved instantly.
We've been sending 4 cargo trains a day to them since last year. All military equipment. The Bayraktars entered Ukraine that way.
It's amazing how living under the thumb of Soviets for a generation or two created almost universal hate across virtually every ethnic group in Europe, even the other Slavs. Gotta hand it to the Russians, they know how to inspire people.
Romanians aren't Slavs.
>We've been sending 4 cargo trains a day to them since last year. All military equipment.
>The Bayraktars entered Ukraine that way.
Bullshit. The TB2 drones get delivered by cargo plane from Turkey to Poland and then into Ukraine.
The Turkish armored vehicles go by freight train from Turkey through Bulgaria and Romania into Ukraine.
Sorry we don't care about the borders of former commie shitholes
The Romanians and Poles are to do the heavy lifting against Russia Proper when the war really starts.
>The Romanians and Poles are to do the heavy lifting against Russia Proper when the war really starts.
This is the actual reason. The states closest to Russia will bear the brunt, and Russia realistically will not get past them. They'll be stuck fighting like they are in Ukraine.
Romania won't be doing nearly much as you think they would. They're an EU state with a massive emigrant population. The ones still in the country would run to Western and Central Europe at the first sight of war.
Romania's military and inventory is a mess, and they still use 5.45x39mm.
> and they still use 5.45x39mm.
They were one of the big adopters of it. They still make AKs in their same old factory. Cheaper and easier to stick with 5.45 but now they’re adopting Berreta’s fish gun so 5.56 is on the menu.
China exports many weapons to Asian nations. From their puppet Narco state in Burma, to Pakistan, Malaysia, Laos, Iran, and a whole slew of African countries and other middle eastern ones.
Poor little vatmoron, he thinks Russia has anything left to fight anyone with. This is over a year after the war started.
They've still got women and children to draft! True patriots!
Neo eastern Roman empire, this time headed by real Romans
>victorious roman armies stole everything not nailed down and paraded it around the pomerium
Forgive me Romanians, for ever doubting your Latin pedigree.
Last year they had a realization that they can actually buy enough weapons to deter Russian intervention. It is not as expensive as thought. And since Russian plans showed an intent to manufacture a chudsister crisis why not prepare a bit
Modernizing their military which mostly fields obsolete soviet era trash.
>buying western junk
Raising the stock price of Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.
and you thought why exactly they were admitted to NATO?
Central-eastern Europe has history of being battleground with some short paused between the wars - and militaries that would seem seem to be oversized in the west are insufficient in eastern mentality...
as they were either fighting for survival of being conquered and waiting for a chance to strike back throughout their histories... perfect consumers for Western MIC i would say.
>What are they up to?
>doesn't include unitarian slogans
Do you think this is a fucking joke?
Moldova is rightful Romanian clay.
Should he have posted gypsies and camgirls??
Looks like them gypsies are bending over and getting fuck by the yankee military industry
they will also buy f35s and 2 french scorpene submarines
They are also buying 250 or so new ifvs. Lynx ASCOD or k21 probably k21 if i had to guess considering they're buying all kinds of korean shit
Also ordered F-35's.
I'm guessing they realised that they're within the range of Russian (political suicide) "invasion".
Not really. It's like a letter of intent.
Waiting for Russia to fuck around in chudstania
When in ROMEania
Do as Loco's do
They remembered the only thing standing between them and Russia is Ukraine.
If there is one thing that I wish my country would give up, is its dumb relationship with France.
I fucking hate French fucking scumbags that come here to do nothing but rape our country while the government keeps signing these retarded contracts with them.
We wanted Corvettes from the Dutch, french morons intervened, bribed officials and "won" a contract which they still haven't delivered on.
We wanted to make a big factory with Bell helicopters, French morons intervened, bribed officials and sold us like 2 shit naval helicopters.
We wanted several midget submarines, hopefully with the Swedes, French morons intervened and sold us 2 massive piece of shit Scorpenes that we don't need for 2 FUCKING BILLION DOLLARS!!!
Death to the French and death to this retarded francophilic country.
total annihilation of chudnistria
