Should Ukraine bring back the LRRP concept?

With endless intel and so much territory unsecured even in spots Russia supposedly "controls", it is possible.

Also, what weapons would equip such units?

    Whatever rifles there are available? What's the difference?

      I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't be remotely shocked.

      So much "controlled" territory is unsecured by the Russians, due to sheer lack of manpower and incompetence.

      Ukraine movements especially at the start of the Donbas war could be described as LRRP SBU and sabotage groups were operating far beyond ukrainian lines

        Probably not, that shit is next level suck that you can't even fathom. Those guys are in phenomenal physical shape, but that isn't even half the battle. They're just straight up nut jobs who are willing to go 3 days without sleep, two days without food, and walk under heavy loads, just for the opportunity to shoot people in the face.

        When I first joined the NG I was doggedly determined to branch infantry and go SF, but then I decided to become a helicopter pilot because it's a much way better way to live. Being an active duty operator would be cool because you'd always have your bros, but having to maintain it on your own as a civilian would be a struggle. Half of what motivates them is the bonds they have with each other, and being a regular Guard soldier can already get lonely because the only other people who understand the struggle are other reservists. Being an actual operator as a side job, seems like it'd be miserable because here you are rucking 20 miles on the weekends then you have come back to the office on Monday and listen to some fat bitch complain about her arthritis.

            You AD fucks never really understand that we don't care. We have full time jobs in the real world that pay living wages, and don't have to ask permission to travel further than 50 miles on a weekend.

              Don't get me wrong I think it's great, or even better to do a spell on AD before switching to the reserves/NG. I wish I had done AD first because the Guard does have some major downsides.

              The One Weekend a month Two weeks a year slogan is simply not true, at least for officers. You can always expect at least one Guard related call, text, email, or assignment per day between drills. It'll honestly become surreal how much time you send planning for a 2-4 day weekend every month. It controls your life in such an odd way, and the worst part is that most of it is unpaid.

        Lol, you go walk across a country of open farmland for weeks at a time carrying all that shit he listed, trying not to get spotted by drones and thermals.

      Me in Far Cry. Seriously though, if you want an assault rifle and a suppressed subgun, why not just compromise and use an sbr with a suppressor and a few mags with subsonic ammo instead of carrying two long guns? Or suppress the pistol and use it instead of the MP5.

    Dumb question, but shouldn't such dudes be absolutely btfo'd by satellite imagery that russia and any somewhat developed country can afford?

      It depends. There are blind windows with those and weather conditions can absolutely fuck up the quality of your data.
      It's like anything else, a combination of tools at your disposal is usually the way to go instead of over reliance on a single thing.

      You'd need to be having a technician staring at hundreds of miles of fields. Any competently deployed scout unit is going to be moving slowly enough that the 'haze' from atmospheric distortion will make a unit damned-near invisible. The false assumption people make is that a satellite operator is even going to have the square kilometer grid a unit might be in, see them, gather any useful information, and relay it to ground/artillery forces in time for anything meaningful to be done to counter them.

      Satellite imagery is great for figuring out tactical plans or spotting emplacements, but an actual light recon unit is going to be a ghost to a satellite.

        Why do you need deep recon squads if the satellite tells you everything anyways? Unless you're trying to spot other individual soldiers hiding in the woods? Seems pointless. Also the Russian rear line is full of civilians happily reporting on Russian positions and vice versa in cases.

    LRRP is horribly outdated in the age of thermals, drones, AWACS and similar. I am glad the militaries of the world do not listen to retards on a Tibetan vagina drying forum.
