Preparedness & self-sufficiency community
>a heli was filled with generals and colonels coming back from Minsk
>escorts and rescue heli also shot down
So versions so far:
a) Russia's own AA
b) Ukrainian partisans with stingers
c) some new AA missile whose transfer to Ukraine wasn't announced
My bet's still on a.
One of each and it was just a coincidence it all happened today
If there were indeed some VIPs on board, then by bet is on Ukie SSO
option d the most credible: it's all fake
Pictured: a fake SU-34 crash:
It's A in actuality, but the reason it's A is because Russia thought B was happening after the first shoot down and they put everyone on alert.
I believe it is option d
It was shot down by the pepoles militia of the Bryansk Independent Republic
russia is saying its b
>On the territory of the Klintsovsky district of the Bryansk region, the "Interception" plan has been introduced. According to Mash, they are looking for saboteurs who may be involved in the attack on the Mi-8 and Su-34.
To be realistic, they would never claim responsibility if it was friendly fire.
Oh fuck my bad. I forgot that these were actual military aircraft and not civilian passenger planes. It definitely couldn't have been caused by Russian AA in that case, so it has to be either option B or C.
true just posting the official narrative
d) some of the Ukraine airforce still exists
50km within Russia? Nah. Russian air defenses is the most likely. They shot down like what 6 or 9 of Russia's own planes in the Georgian war. Nothing's improved.
I wouldn't rule it out, they have been running 24/7 CAP for how many months now? You really think Russia can maintain that ready rate?
It does, but I don't think it's that - not unless Ukraine's been donated stealth fighters on the sly.
>Russians shot down their own jets
This is the reality I choose to live in.
Incompetence or shooting down defectors?
Why would you assassinate one of your generals by shooting him down in an expensive aircraft vs. just putting a bullet in him or the usual Russian play of throwing them out of a window?
You don't discover their betrayal till they nick off in expensive jet to gift to enemy?
>GENERALS on board
This is almost too good to be true. Fingers crossed
>GENERALS on board
This could potentially be a problem if their replacements are more competent
With how Putin killed so many Generals already?
Not likely, lol.
>Major General Saplin
>shot himself (cancer)
I've never heard of a case advanced enough to do that
>shot himself (cancer)
So he died of cancer brought about by lead poisoning?
If you’re going to post vivzieshit then at least post Verosika
I guess his he shot himself because he had terminal cancer and didn't want to die of it
Fuck, I laughed quite hard.
Many such cases. Sad
It literally doesn't matter, so many times during this war I've seen vatnik copes by saying "OH MY GOD IT'S THE ULTIMATE SUPREME ANGEL OF DEATH GRAND BUTCHER OF DAMASCUS THAT HAS LIKE 500 KILLS IN SYRIA OR SOMETHING HE'S NOW LEADING THE DONBAS ARMY THE GLOVES ARE OFF" every time there's a general change, and guess what happens afterwards? FUCKING NOTHING,
Turns out systemic issues like having zero pallets can't be solved by just rotating the leadership. Who would have known???????
"MUH STRONGMAN" mentality.
Russians think if they just grab the right savage barbarian; he will overcome problems with NCOs, Logistics, Communications, Morale, etc.
Meanwhile the Ukrainians reformed on a SYSTEMIC level. They're all fucking killers now.
Remember when surovikin got power and they thought he would change the tide of the war? All those edits?
Then all he does is launch some lawnmower drones they had to suck off Iran for (which failed strategically) and withdrawing from Kherson. Then he was demoted and they never speak of him anymore
Holy shit if this happened in any other country there would be a state of emergency
I used to say this, but the generals are apparently figureheads. There's no worries, Putin is a micromanaging retard that will never let anyone outshine him
I think the public could only confirmed this once there's an announcement about those general funeral.
THIS is what I want to see more of, Ukraine.
Bring the war TO the Russians INSIDE Russia. Go full insurgent.
You win a Loona.
>the rotor blade from the Mi-8
Russians are claiming it was an engine fire
>Russians are claiming it was an engine fire
Where? The video evidence clearly shows an explosion, with accompanying boom, and the flaming wreak falling from the sky is all mangled. No pilot ejections, either.
On russian telegram and online news. You do know they literally ALWAYS lie right?
Westoid HATOs don't have explosive fire extinguishers on their aircrafts?
Psshh, merely a spontaneous engine ignition and turbine blade separation.
Which missile can cause this sort of damage pattern?
20 bucks on amraam or harm
Holy fuck. A ground launched AMRAAM smuggled between the border togethrr with a radar. And HARM. A fucking ANTI RADIATION MISSILE. This has to be a bait. Ever PrepHole cabnnot be this retarded. It was a manpads you mongoid, it might as well be an igla
It was air to air aim-120s launched at max range with find and forget. Manpads don't insta kill pilots.
Jets are a thing, anon
Wasn't there a crashed mi-28 as well?
Ya, but that was on Thursday/early Friday and in Crimea so it's a separate incident
Wait, that was a DIFFERENT incident than the four aircraft I'm hearing about today?
Is God actually on Ukraine's side here or is this the power of Ukrainian druidic black magic???
To be fair that is a likely cause and will happen alot more in the future.
They have been flying their shitty old helis alot for the last year and I doubt they have enough people for maintenance.
Friendly fire, Russian AA troops almost as autistic as their electronic warfare crews
>Stingers shoot down 4 Russian aircraft 50 km within Russia
based infiltration units, they can basically fire at anything they see, because Ukrainians aren't going to be flying there and theres no civilian traffic there, right?
Honestly with how bad Russia's security services have got to be by now, it should be pretty easy for Ukraine's own spies to get inside the country and wreck endless havoc.
Go forth, SBU.
Red Dragon SAS bros... we won.
Dont mind me just hiding some AA special forces near your starting position
Not the aircraft that matters. It's the fucking Generals inside.
Putin is running out of "competent" leaders.
It's the pilots, really.
>a heli was filled with generals and colonels coming back from Minsk
>Source: Trust me bro!
We'll get confirmation of the dead generals soon if true. Russians already confirmed all 4 losses
>Russians already confirmed all 4 losses
it's everywhere? 2x Mi-8, 1x Su-34, 1x Su-35, they got NFZd before they even realized
There's too much disinfo out at the moment to confirm that.
“Everywhere” isn’t a source. “Helicopters full of general officers shot down by sekrit partisan AA units/friendly fire!” reeks of unconfirmed exaggeration.
Oh no, he posted a wojak guys! In 2023! He just won the internet!!
Anon back to pol. You been spamming this here in this board since last week.
spamming won't save you, pidor.
Wrong image friend.
>rescue heli also shot down
Sorry guys but i can't support Ukraine anymore
It was probably friendly fire dude. Vatniks are stupid.
John Smith from Washington Oblast here, I also think baiting SAM operators into shooting down rescue helicopters is a warcrime, damn hohols.
rescue helicopters are fair game because otherwise they would paint attack helicopters in rescue style
This, Russians literally can’t into the concept of honourable conduct so perfidy and mercy exemptions don’t apply in any war with them
Who has the most friendly fire incidents?
>if only you knew how bad things really are
>helicopters providing EW for jets
I'm not an expert but that sounds pretty retarded
Could be possible since the jets are russhit
depends on how heavy the ewar equipment is.
Generally speaking, a whirlybird of the same class/price as a jet will be able to fly heavier, longer.
>inb4 Ivan the russian SAM operator wasn't told there were going to be any flights with radar-jamming EW helicopters that day so when they suddenly started to get jammed he ordered the source shot down (had to be Ukrainian right?)
I wouldn't be surprised if this was the case, specially after the Luhansk fireworks show, AA crews are going to be a bit tense around the Storm Shadows.
Something like that happened after the Belgorod mi24 raild, someone probably yanked AA defense command balls after that and they become more and more trigger happy, and after some firendly fire incidents the RuAF was restrited to egress and ingress ukranian airspace through some air corridors or risk getting shot down.
Of course, trying to set a system where the RuAF command reports Air Defence command their missions for the day to avoid this is pure ISIS-American tactics and not manly enough, so no one is going to do it.
not just spamming, but spamming a pic that was originally made to mock russia that retarded ziggers tried to co-opt
I believe that's what imageboards in Russia call "пepeфopc"
It's funny because the last bait you posted
>we aren't retarded and did it ourselves
>we actually have enemy elements armed with MANPADS crawling 50km deep in our back lines
I-I don't really think this makes it any better.
He has risen
OOOOOO I'M GONNA LOCK OOOOOOOOOOOOONNN
is anyone actually reporting about generals being on it?
looks too big too be Singers, 3-4meters long, has to be Patriot system, no?
That's possibly an artifact of the low resolution. The chopper blades are also much fatter than normal.
>looks too big too be Singers, 3-4meters long,
An artifact of the missile moving very fast IMHO.
Can be some sort of fast suicide drone
BTW this is clearly a manpad and not a patriot/amraam. It seems that the ukies have managed to infiltrate over the russian border and are now sniping aircraft from the ground.
Spawn killing is a warcrime. Hohols must face international court for this.
>Russia lost 4 aircraft
OH NO IT’S ALL OGRE NOW!!
>Shot down by super sekrit stinger teams
>Heli full of generals
Seems 100% legit! There’s no hecking recovering from this, Putler!
NATO is done for........
Why are you posting what some American christian weeaboofag posts to twitter? Like we give a shit?
You should give a shit... Because the line has been crossed and now you're finally done for

Soon everyone will understand everything.

Business as usual

HATO war crimes
I used to think the death of senior Russian leadership would have an effect on the outcome of the war, but I no longer believe that:
1. Russians don't really have much good leadership to begin with
2. Their problems are systemic so even a good leader will have problems implementing competent plans and fixing problems due to limits on the scope of their authority.
3. Because the of 1 and 2, Russia can just replace dead leadership with retards off the street with minimal appreciable damage. The damage they can do is limited by the systems which prevent them from causing real damage.
At best, if enough "loyal" generals died, it could have an effect on the eventual coup/civil war that is going to take place.
I know it's blindly naive, but I used to think with enough general's deaths, a coup would become inevitable as the military leaders would value their lives over facing Putin's wrath.
Very naive indeed... Turns out generals would rather rat on each other and get killed like a bucket of crabs
I don't really know who is in control in russia right now.
I wonder, what's more sad in a pathetic kind of way: when it's an actual putinbot spamming for 15 rubles or when it's some retarded westoid who bought into LE BASED RUSSIA propaganda narrative for free
I think simping for yoocrane, and gobbling up every piece of propaganda-sphere media as fact is most cringe.
This thread is a great example. We don’t even know if/how these helos were shot down yet, and mfers are already in here talking about “dead generals” and what would happen if the Russian senior leadership died. Just kek.
Guarantee you these were the same fags spamming about le “ghost of keev” 14 months ago.
Good morning Sir!
I don't remember asking a moronic vatmoron anything. Do not butt in when I ask human beings.
Oh no, anyways.
You're still trying to make sounds resembling human speech?
Pathetic, just have a nice day. Promise you, no one will be sad.
At this point every time someone brings of ghost of Kiev I'm assuming it's bait.
Desperate, tear-soaked rat claws typed this post.
And you responded to it, making you even more of a gay.
Vatmorons going in full force today lol
>Board is flooded with ukrainian propaganda posts past 24hrs
>”vatmorons out in force”
How retarded and delusional are you people.
Typical Vatnik response to Russian failure is to spam PrepHole
Keep seething lol, I'm sure it'll bring your helicopters back
Go back to /chug/.
Funny, only vatmorons ever cared about le ebin meme ghost. Idk if his kill score are real, but millions of mindbroken vatnigs sure are.
>ghost of queef reeeee
It was an engine malfunction like the early russian report said.
>4 malfunctions in 1 day
not sure what's worse, that or being attacked, kek
+1 big bird hitting the engine. This things happen...it was just bad luck.
are these the same from different angles or individual heli?
Same one, different angles.
We dont have footage of the other 3. (well, we have a video of the SU debris)
Need better footage, with that other bird flying in the foreground it seems odd a big bird just appears for a frame before impacting and exploding the engine.
If you cannot identify that as an anti air munition striking a helicopter, you need you brain removed and examined by a neuropathologist.
That was too fast for a bird. That was a projectile.
No stupid hohol. Is birb.
Sure that type of accidents happen every day in war. Nothing wrong with shooting down vatnggers.
That's clearly not the Patriot missile blast is too small. Stinger or AIM-120 maximum (Maybe Russian Pantsir)
all the options present are just so embarrassing for russia
>4 crashes from malfunctions
>4 aircraft shotdown by ukie infantry deep in your own country
>4 aircraft shotdown by some mysteriour long range AA firing from ukraine you had no idea existed
>4 aircract shotdown by your own AA
lol, lmao even
very embarrassing (for PrepHoleopers)
if a patriot had hit this, the whole helicopter would have disintegrated
Tell them. They are paranoid as hell about patriots now
lmao these vatnik scum tried to steamroll a poorer country and got their asses handed to them and now they're crying 'everything is so unfair' when they start getting slapped back across their own borders. Maybe don't start shit you retards
if only you knew how unfair things really are
This is so unfair it should be considered a warcrime.
Unbalanced NATO hugbox tbqh, game dead.
He looks like what would happen if a video game were real and you just looted corpses without a care about clothing sizes.
> Slavjit has wares if you has vodka.
Why? It's a hit to kill interceptor, it would have smashed a big ass hole right through the heli, but it wouldn't have instantly disintegrated it.
Can you imagine the sheer terror the crew and passengers must've went through in their last moments?
Fucking GRIM. I'm sure they were all excited well trained lads you could have a beer with. No fucking optics also lol. Russia in a nutshell.
>elite well trained units
>commander sold your optics on ebay to buy a new dacha
They weren't afraid, those dickheads had booked restaurants for their victory celebrations and had assumed Ukraine wouldn't fight.
theres talk of a video? Links please
In Russian news.
What is that advert for?
Sbermarket. Another take on omni e-commerce store (Russians already have their own long established "Amazon", called Ozon (did you see what they did there?), Sbermarket is another take to bite part of such market created by largest Russian bank, Sberbank.
In this AD they advertise very low price for ketchup in their e-store.
>21 SU-34 destroyed
kind of a shame cause i think their duckbill shape is cute
Su-34 is a cool jet. The greatest tredgedy is that it's stuck in Russia.
SU47 as well
Perry the Platypus?
It was doomed in russian service. Shitty ass avionics, shitty ass optoeletronics, bad stand-off weapons, crappy aviators with no training etc.
The more important is that pilots are dead.
yeah you're not getting those replaced any time soon
here are all the angles.
Noone here asked a moronic vatmoron what he thinks about others calling him a vatmoron.
Cry some more, maybe you will commit suicide soon enough.
HOW THE FUCK DO YOU LOSE AIR SUPERIORITY IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY WHEN YOU INVADE A NEIGHBOUR WITH BARELY ANY AIR FORCE?!!?!?!? These Russians will never stop being made fun of for this. We need to come up with a scrapbook of their particularly embarrassing failures:
>Tank stolen by gypsies
>Soldiers surrender for food
>Entrenchments in a radioactive wasteland
>40 mile convoy
>Abandoning so much equipment you accidentally mechanize an entire Ukrainian division.
>The kremlin getting hit with drone
>Getting stuck in elevator
>Getting your secret Iran meeting hacked
>Battle of the glass door.
>Helicopter crashing and dishwasher in wreckage
>Repeatedly reinforcing that one airfield
That phrase… I do not think you what it means.
I mean we all remember the hind raid on belgorod right?
You can also add the maccaroni ammo crate to the list
>getting vaporized by pregnant Anne Frank artillery shells
Gotta be among the top ten funniest ways to die
>anyone who gives any amount of ideological pushback
It's almost like people outside your 4chan shithole have no patience for schizo contrarian bullshit, right?
It would be more interesting if instead of “ideological pushback” you had applied some “critical thinking”.
I’m sure you think yourself capable of such but wish you luck actually performing that feat.
MIGHTY RIVET JOINT IS AMUSED BY THIS NEWS
This needs an "If ony you knew how bad things really are."
>two jets lauching gliding bombs on civilian targets in Chernigiv every day
>followed by 2 helis who were supposed to save them
>all taken down
This is the key of this, IMO. Ukies were unable to stop those attacks because russian jets kept themselves outside their manpad/sam range.
Not anymore, lol
Pretty much confirms they were given AIM-120C or D. A and B only have 50km of range, these aircraft were taken out at least 50km from the border, suicide for any pilot.
I cant believe the MIG-29 and SU-27 can carry AGM-88's and AIM-120's at the same time now. What a world we live in.
i don't know if that would work. AIM-120s are active radar but they're meant to rely on datalink as much as possible so they don't make the plane's RWR react before it's too late. an mi-8 might not have a RWR that can detect a missile going active on them but a SU-34 definitely would
I honestly feel kind of bad for you m8
I hope you get to live to see her fixed.
I feel sorry for your decaying, yellow teeth, if not you as a person for having a sub-70 IQ.
I wish someone had told your mother lead exposure was bad for fetuses. Then we might be able to converse like human beings.
Open your eyes to the truth man, bottling all that darkness inside is not good for you.
the ass is in the ass
Don’t quack like a duck and people won’t call you one buddy.
using EW helicopters that can't fly anywhere near the same altitude or speed as the jets they're supposed to cover seems retarded to me, especially when the su-34 advertised EW and jamming capabilities in its many failed bids to other countries. russians would never lie. russia is truly the world's second greatest military.
>the helos shot down were Mi-8MTPR's, electronic warfare versions of which Russia only built 18
>this is a mater of ideology for him
Jesus Christ, how genuinely fucking pathetic.
Please understand for vatnik this is a matter of defending his country's honoure from his keyboard.
For us it's just shitposting.
I like how there's a delay of 2-3 hours then the vatnik butthurt starts flowing
Like clockwork. Their handlers must be scrambling to keep up with all of their failures lol
sauces are saying it was starstreak
>Ukucks seething over this for describing their gay fantasies in detail
What kind of fucking retard would share ideology with fucking vodka morons? What is their ideology? Steal, rape, enslave, bully, engage in corruption, break things, drink, get aids, use heroin?
You forgot krokodile or whatever the fuck their drug is called
unironically pretty much any wannabe tyrant that cant have that unrestrained killing power personally so they project onto those they see fitting their fantasies. Tankies, 4chanchuds, cum/chug/gies, Serbia etc
I take another direction - pajeets, vatniks and chongs all share simp-posting on Mongolian yoghurt recipe club websites because they also share something else in common - none of them can shit in a plumbed toilet indoors.

>I don’t care about weapons being used to destroy weapons
What board are we on again?
>i don't care about 2 military helicopters getting shot out of the sky by an unknown weapons system!!!!
why are you on PrepHole then retard? this war has produced an insane amount of high quality weapons and combat footage for this board
Weird, you weren't tired of russoids spamming this board 24/7.
>Reeeeee I don't want to hear about war in my weapons board
Posts about war belong in PrepHole, tourist. Funny how your lot never post in threads about the Papua rebellion or Somaliland.
Fucking disingenous shill.
Now's the part where you get really angry and start spamming your Ukie gore folder
Like clockwork. No wonder Ukraine is winning, these guys are as predictable as the sunset
>calls anyone you don’t like le vatmoron
I would call you guys predictable, but that’s literally the only thing you can fo kek. Oh no, it hurts so much being called a thing I’m not!
>Was funny watching that lil Ukuck piglet get his head sawed by a dull blade as he kicked and screamed.
I can't believe they called you a vatmoron. disgusting and offensive. soon they will resort to misgendering you my sweet please flee this place for your safety
If you don't like it, filter the threads and don't click on them.
Why are you here arguing?
Anyone who thinks this isn't PrepHole related or consistent with the history of posts on PrepHole is the real fucking tourist. A real PrepHole user would just hide threads. Don't come here from fucking telegram or wherever and shit up PrepHole with your gatekeeping bullshit.
Now it's 3 THREE generals
It's been said a dozen times already, use the filter, do you need help with figuring that out? Probably not, you just want to argue.
>don't post about weapons on the weapons board
>Spamming news-tier posts about every tiny development that occurs like it’s the 24hr news cycle is apparently “discussing weapons”
Yep, confirmed retard.
>Four Russian combat aircraft destroyed by either Russia's own weapons, or Patriot, or Starstreak and Stinger, in the course of about 45 minutes, is a tiny development and not discussing weapons
Big brain retard, but the big brain is a tumour
I have a feeling if 2x F16, F15, 2x blackhawk, and an apache were mysteriously destroyed in flight over US territory with crews all deceased and missile strikes on video you would not be on here saying "stop talking about this tiny event, please god can we talk about whether 'truck guns' are a concept invented by morons looking for loot yes I'm aware I can make my own threads I don't care I am suHispaniciously invested in yours despite not caring I promise"
stfu you stupid moron fucker
we get 40 threads about chinooks blowing up during training exercises in america every time it happens and no one cares
I've been here longer than you which you've demonstrated because you're too fucking stupid to even sage
Your claim about the generals is total bullshit just so you know.
>Acts like vatmoron
>Gets called a vatmoron
10 trillion rubles (.01 USD) has been deposited into your account.
Now make sure to post in the next Somaliland thread that they need to go back to 4chan since war doesn’t have a place on PrepHole
Was working wondering what had happened because of all the slide threads. All it does is work as an early warning system for incoming happenings that are on Ru telegram and shortly to break.
Does anyone have a copy of the Russian tweet a couple days before they invaded, denying the US saying they are about to invade and saying they will go on holiday?
>I can’t find it anywhere
As much as i hate commies. That guy was in charge for almost a year. Its literally nothing.
>When your propaganda is soo effective that you actually convince another country to go to war
the absolute state of that link.
I know anon, I know…
>will do better
I was disappointed when I found out that it wasn't western spies that told of the plot before hand. Apparently Lavrov just told the ambassador straight up that Russia was taking over Ukraine at the start of the new year. Did he really not think the US would tell anyone about it?
Some sources to back your claims up would help.
I dont have it now, it could be bullshit but I remember reading about it a few months ago
Looks like our vatmoron is on the verge of crying judging by the use of smileys.
>When I use smileys: Haha hecking owned!!
>When they use smileys: Le hecking vatmoron is losing, see!!!
It’s so retarded I almost pity you.
Things just seem to be getting worse and worse every day for Russia right now. No wonder all the Vatnig shills and social media Russo-wumaos are all crying an shitting so hard.
Crashing these helicopters, with no survivors
And here we are, the last mask of the Vatnik. Watch as it farms (you)s by crying about how awesome Russia’s warcrimes are before it deletes its own post and the cries about jannies in another thread.
here is a Hispanicy intel on certains someones route
>start losing territory in Bakmoot
>OH GODS IN HEAVEN THIS IS THE BIG COUNTER OFFENSIVE ABANDON YOUR POSTS
>get hit by a cruise missile that had decoys
>I SEE A BLIP ON THE RADAR SHOOT IT SHOOT IT NOWWWW
Is fear a weapon?
It always has been. Before guns and line tactics weapons most casualties in a battle would happen during a rout as the fleeing side was cut down while the fled.
I mean this can't be a coincidence that the day after a supposed Storm Shadow strike that Russia suddenly start having aircraft being swatted out of the sky 50km from within their own country.
It's especially effective from uncoordinated hordes what rely on a singular command structure with shit poor communications, so if they're told "shoot anything that looks like a threat" without any way to verify or countermand or communicate they're going to push the button.
Wtf kind of cringe reddit fan-fiction is this? Do you retards actually think this what these people think?
I think back to the panic around a possible war with Iran after Soleimani got capped - remember that civilian airliner that the Iranians shot down because all their AD crews were on edge? I wonder if something similar happened here, only instead of American jets being the shadows that are being jumped at, it's Storm Shadow instead.
My dentist was on that plane. I still think about it.
Remember to floss every day in his memory, anon, it's what he would want for you.
You can stop crying now, vatmoron.
The longer it goes on, the more embarrassing you get. Stop now while you still can save face.
>The ADM-160A carries a Signature Augmentation Subsystem (SAS) which is composed of various active radar enhancers which cover a range of frequencies. The SAS can therefore simulate any aircraft, from the B-52 Stratofortress to the F-117 Nighthawk.

Everything is MALD.
See that Su-27 headed back to its airbase? It's actually a MALD. Shoot it down.
just don't look at actual equipment attrition rates lmao. the ass will escape the ass
>... military counterintelligence officers should understand. I believe they will succeed.
Fuck that's scary. Sounds like they are basically instructing FSB to start stacking bodies.
Germany just announced a Hispanicy 3 billion military package
This is on top of all the US packages and all other shit Ukraine is getting
They literally have virtually unlimited supplies. Raytheon alone is printing cash off this war right now.
beginning of a Russian coup?
Kek, the pigposting should be used against lakhta shills more often. Imagine if that gets stolen from them too, would be more devastating than Pynic Wars.
Naw bro. It was aim-120s fired from mig-29s at max range. They probably knew the patterns of the daily glide bomb attacks and just fired and forgot.
That's why every pilot died, radar seeking not thermal.
I just leave this here
Does he think storm shadows are sniping fighters out of the air? Anglos really do rule the Russian mindspace
>announced all over mainstream media
>air forces didnt know about it
Damn, russia has 10000 planes and choppers?
Russian General=U.S Colonel
Russian Colonel=U.S Captain
>filled with generals and colonels
This sounds sketchy af. Still, to lose 4 birds is a pretty fucking big setback considering Russia has problems manufacturing new hardware.
The funniest part of todays shitshow is vatnigs crying "FAKE CGI GLOBOHOMO PROPAGANDA" while ru telegram channels shit themselves in anger
Reminder, the day is not over yet.
This CAN'T all be friendly fire. There's no way
Yep, still have a couple hours of light (no one in Russia can be considered competent in night flying).
Someone update the infographic with a Ukrainian mig-29 armed with amraams at 5-0. On the right side.
We are seeing a Ukraine that is now confident enough in their SAMs they are willing to start using their airforce again, before if they lots CAP they were fucked but now they can defend their airspace without planes they can start risking them again.
If Ukraine gains air superiority the cope is going the be the worst we have ever seen.
If Ukies get their airforce in the sky again it's literally game over for Russia in its fullest sense. Ukies will retake everything and will most likely get to dictate terms.
American weapons are forbidden to be used in Russia. So it would have to be Ukrainian SAMs? But which ones would be able to reach that far?
It'll be Ukie fighters launching fox 3's, likely R-27EAs as I doubt AIM-120s are linked to their radars and pitbulling an AIM-120 at 50km isn't going to hit shit.
>It'll be Ukie fighters launching fox 3's, likely R-27EAs as I doubt AIM-120s are linked to their radars and pitbulling an AIM-120 at 50km isn't going to hit shit.
If that's true... jesus. It's Ukraine about to fuck shit up. Backed by Patriots they will have an effective "No Fly Zone" of their own. Ukie jets can then fire their own home made weapons into Russian airspace to pick off targets. This is without F-16's.
The ass... is in the ass. Endgame.
>The ass... is in the ass. Endgame
Any updates on the uh "health problems" some of these guys have been facing? Some Chechen general fell ill due to poisoning. Something with Kadyrov himself? And then Luka rushed to hospital after meeting in Moscow? Any of this confirmed?
Kadyrov and Prig stepping on a landmine would make my day. Putin's ass cancer will kill him but that'll be like 8 years.
Kadyrov is still alive, but has gained quite a bit of weight
I double checked and Ukraine does produce the R-27EA domestically, that's what they'll be.
Technically they weren't used in Russia, they were used in ukraine and just happened to hit targets in russian airspace
50km for Patriot fire is extremely unlikely, its within range but to fire a longboy like that into Russia is balls deep crazy
Waiting to discover that ukraine just put their crack artillery guys on the missiles
>American weapons are forbidden to be used in Russia
I hear that a lot, but see no evidence of it.
Name a single time a foreign weapon has been used in Russia proper? You only see shitty drones flying into Russia because those are Ukriane weapons. The UK Cruise missiles hit in Donbass (Ukraine).
>Name a single time a foreign weapon has been used in Russia proper?
I don't know, there were big explosions in belgrad and bryansk as far as I remember.
So you based your allegation on that? Kind of weak.
Starodubshchyna is Ukraine
the fuck is happening
Chopper season just opened.
Not sure, but that one look like a continuos rod warhead cut the fucker into pieces.
>CUT MY HIND INTO PIECES!
THIS IS MY LAST RESORT
DETONATION, FACE BLEEDING
DON'T GIVE A FUCK, VDV SEETHING
OH FUCK EVERYTHING IS STORM SHADOW SHOOT SHOOT SHOOOOOOOT
>the fuck is happening
Dead Zigger Storage.
>blyat hawk down
so that's nr5 today. will we see another one before the day is over?
>Military counterintelligence officers will understand everything
>The ass is in the ass
>Air defense is working
If it's friendly fire (most likely) I'm going to laugh.
If it turns out the EU has been shipping MBDA Meteors unannounced, I'm going to cum.
Sadly, stealth delivering meteors would be way too based for eu
the reality that russia is at a 4:1 casualty disadvantage?
>it's real in my mind
anon not everyone is like you, stop projecting. i know that a lot of your self-worth is balanced on the state of this war but you would be better off finding personality traits that don't involve simping over some asian rapebaby russians.
the ass is in the ass, lighten up.
stingers have a 50km range? wtf
Since everything Russians accuse is projection, I'm forced to assume there's now a high level war of assassins going on between Russian power brokers. Invest in high rise glaziers, bull market coming.
5th aircraft shot down today!
How many officers died in 3 Mi-8 shootdowns ?
>How many officers died in 3 Mi-8 shootdowns ?
>See a missile clearly exploding on impact
>People itt say it must have been a patriot or other long range AA, all of which explode by proxy fuse
The absolute state of /key/
do you know what the standoff on a patriot fuse is?
do you really think you could differentiate it from impact on a blurry low frame rate camera video?
I'm not making any claims here I just want to see if our local super genius can rule out this option as rigorously as you think you can
What did he mean by this?
Damn guys, this week was an absolute nightmare for russikies.
Apparently Russia's theft of elbow macaroni crossed the line.
>Russia's theft of elbow macaroni crossed the line
You cracked me in half.
please be Tornados or Typhoons
It won't be, but please let it be
God I would cum so hard. I bet Germany would deliver them too if Italy did.
Tornado-bros now is our time!
Italy is out for fucking blood after seeing what the Russians have been doing with their macaroni. There are some things that Rome is unable to forgive.
bros is this the beginning of the end for russia in this war?
I mean i dont want to underestimate them too much but it seems like ukies just have to be relatively competent and they are winning this at this point.
The beginning of the end was is March last year, this is the end of the end.
Doubt it, these are some good developments but there's still a long way to go. putin can still throw couple hundred k mobiks in front of ukies as a speedbump
Looks like NATO's super soldiers are finally inside Russia.
hide your hinds
Source; it was revealed to me in a dream.
Here's what happened. Engine failure caused one crash, vranyo was engaged and suddenly the entire russian ads got activated, which subsequently ganked the rest of them. Taking bets if you want
>meanwhile sbu and hurmo are killing each others agents in a bid to control the country
i'll take shit that never happened, for $500, Alex
Sounds like Air Defense to me
Sounds like a sonic boom and explosion mixed together to me, no sound of a launch.
>50km within Russia
Yes friendly fire NO PANIC!
