The assault Ural has been defeated

Golf carts, motorcycles and now Urals being used in assaults. I'm predicting uparmored Bukhankas to storm the frontlines next.
Are they preparing for the looming IFV shortage?

      To be fair on the OP, I don't think many of us would have been comfortable speculating the loss rates being as white-hot as they have been. Like most of us, you sort of take the data on what's out there with a grain of salt but underestimating an opponent is really quite a bad move for anyone to do, some of these offensives have notched up ludicrous losses. They've lost something like 105 armoured vehicles on the 'White Mountain' front alone in 3-4months

        It's probably less a function of Russian desperation/improved organization or Ukrainian weapons and more due to the warm season drying things out so Russian can zerg more vehicles.

          The best bottleneck is continuing to hit their oil refining capacity. They are already struggling to meet domestic demand for refined oil and have banned export of all refined products. Russia's only choice then is to scale back oil consumption, or sell their crude to countries with excess refining capacity and then buying it back (at a huge markup).

          It doesn't matter how many BMPs Russia builds if they don't have the gas to run them.

          It doesn't matter if the factory itself is flooded or not. If just the region is flooded that's enough to effect the whole necessary circunstances for making a BMP, packing it, shipping it and then actually putting it into service.

          What good is the factory if the roads are flooded for example?

          The point isn't that they are constantly further sliding towards worst vehicles. Point is that they seem to be trying through various vehicles not meant for frontlines and forcing these to fit the assault role. Probably preparing for an acute IFV shortage and testing other options beforehand.

                V is regularly seen on many military vehicles throughout the world in some way or form, a simple arrow.
                O is even more generic and basically a fricking circle.
                The Z on the other hand is unusual as it's from the latin alphabet and has a rather harsh sound when spoken out and is sort of a badass looking eyecatcher that got quickly adopted by ziggers domestically as well as all around the world. It's simple and distinct enough to be highly memorable.

              They've been pretty popular in europe, but exports obviously stopped in 2022. Don't know if production is still ongoing, UAZ was going to end it in 2019 or so but then recieved too many orders from europe.

          There's just something weirdly appealing about bukhankas. I know it's shitboxes hammered together by prisoners, but still. Looking at them gives me this urge to try and rice one into something cute and comfy.

            I've been drip feeding Buhanka, Jeep Command var (it's what Russia copied to get Buhanka), C-303, and Pinzgauer to /k/. As a result of my studies, I can scientifically explain the appeal.
            - The headlights are close together and large enough to resemble baby eyes. Same reason you like puppies & kittens.
            - The curves are perfectly mediocre. Very curvy = sexy, feminine, or sumptuously luxurious. Angular = masculine & strong. Buhanka is between. Volkswagen Minibus. It's endearingly lame, a stylistic underdog that needs your touch.
            - Small, normal wheels. Thr C303 and Pinzgauer have larger wheels, which tell you it has special parts optimized for cross country. Meanwhile Buhanka has literal trunk-spare looking wheels & tires. Beyond common, but even the lowest possible common standard. Again, underdog that needs your help.
            - The panel seams are deep enough to make the door size easily read at a glance. This is important to reinforce the smallness, if there is no person beside the Buhanka for reference.

    Yes in a way.

    Honestly the longer they wait out the bigger the chances that a 71 year old Putin dies of health issues/old age in a country where life expectency is 69 years. If dies then the whole regime collapses as he's the only legitimate source of power in the country and then the war will end. Time is on Ukraine's side.

      Russia has been on a course to become a Chinese vassal for a while now. It was already a topic of discussion back in 1997 when Brzezinski published The Great Chessboard.

      Plus, maybe the resource rich regions of Ukraines aren't that essential to Russia. When Brzezinski estimated what would happen if a war between Ukraine and Russia broke out, he pretty much figured Ukraine would be cut in pieces: the pieces Russia would've gotten are strategic for applying their imperialism in the region. And the pieces Brzezinski identified are currently pretty much all under Russia's control.

      Obviously, he didn't consider this war breaking out to be a good thing. His plan for the US foreign policies in Ukraine was that Ukraine should be pushed into integrating NATO and EU *without* triggering a war, which implied russian elements in the military and government had to be rooted out first. Considering the defections that followed Maïdan events, it seems like the US didn't heed his advice.

      The ultimate goal for Brzezinski being not in Ukraine, but in forcing Russia to join US as a lesser partner against China. Acquiring Ukraine for Russia was supposedly the only way for them to avoid vassalization from either China or the US.

      Let them cook.

      The issue with reactivating old shit is that it takes a whole lot of time and most hulls are probably unsalvagable.

        Any "hull" that was merely stored rather than blown up is salvageable, but the drivetrain, weapons, power pack and electronics may not be.

        Teardown of smashed range target Shermans then making one out of two hulls and other donors shows how simple AFV hulls are to deal with, not that hull splicing is worth it on common hulls. Use the precision parts like turret rings to establish a datum line (term comes from ship hulls and also applies to aircraft) then cut, grind and weld. It's surprisingly simple.

        Engine and gearbox work etc is much more demanding unless you've ample spares including gaskets and seals (which will be common unless the designer was a fool). Wiring isn't shit IF you have all the correct connectors etc. is easy though tedious. AFV in many respects are easier than cars because cosmetics aren't a factor and tracked vehicles are simpler than many modern automobiles.

You think that if Russia invades Poland, there won't be one of 17 aircraft carriers in the Baltic Sea within a week? Do you think that F-35's, Typhoons, Gripens, Rafaels etc won't be launching from any airbase in Europe to launch missiles at Russian targets?

            Why are we now in Estonia when we were in Poland? And the same applies, there are NATO troops and equipment there. I don't think NATO states will allow their forces to be killed and just leave it.

            i kinda miss the rabid anti-soviet rhetoric among western leaders and the mainstream public discourse that was prevalent during the cold war, when it was
            >better red than dead
            >they'll pay dearly for every inch they take
            >udssr is our greates enemy
            >we stand together, one for all and all for one
            nowadays western populations are utterly demoralized after getting properly israelitewed out financially and culturally by globalism, leftist propaganda and all kinds of shitholes poisoning the well via black propaganda. it's a real bummer the american enthusiasm for war was wasted on decade long fricking around in the desert instead of doing what it was made for from the beginning of the cold war - pissing off commies and being crazy prepared to eradicate them when it comes to war in europe or the american continent

    sadly i can't find the clip but mariupol and some of the other ukrainian places they captured get flooded with churkoids as well. basically they bombed the russian speaking diaspora into oblivion, had them flee to europe/russia or abducted many of them only to then replace 'em with rabid central asian mudslimes

    huh. I thought victory in Ukraine would lead to years of North Korean style isolation, more/longer sanctions, collapsing demographic and total chaos once Putin dies.

    But your assessment seems much more likely.

    Again, NATO forces are in all four of those nations. No nation is going to let their military equipment and personnel get killed and do nothing in return.

    And? USA also looked the other way when Russian aircraft pilots, in Russian aircraft, shot down American aircraft in Vietnam. So? If you think that's the same as Russia attacking a NATO member and (here is the key thing here) every single member of the alliance backs out then you're moronic. If USA backs out (note, again, NATO isn't just USA) then it is essentially giving up its position as the global superpower and that means lots of money lost which means, guess what, the country suffers. So you literally have no benefit for backing out of the alliance you set up and have maintained. That is, again, ignoring the rest of the NATO forces in those nation which is a lot of nations that have to back out and ruin their global standing. Your kind of thinking is exactly what caused WW1 to spiral out of control.
    >The Russians won't defend the Serbs
    >The British won't defend the Belgians
    And WW2
    >The British won't defend the Poles
    Etc.

    If Putin (and you) are so sure that NATO won't do anything why aren't they attacking NOW? I mean, Putin has regularly said that the Baltic states are fake states that are Russian really and Russian culture and don't real languages or cultures or anything and are full of Russophobic Nazis, so why isn't he reclaiming rightful Russian clay if Russia won't have to fight NATO won't have to do aynthing? I mean the defence forces of those states are so miniscule even Russia could do it. So why aren't they doing it?

    [...]

    Then why isn't Russia doing it right now if you're so sure? If you're so sure, Putin must know, so why isn't he?

      And that's the russian plan. Cause a shitfest and show the world that US is dysfunctional, leading to the collapse of the normal world order. While morons in the US still think shit like "we can't give ukies weapons, because russia losing would be bad" and "we need russia as an ally against chinks".

      Ireland but both the Russians and Irish would enjoy that far too much so it can't be a war and is postponed until both sides stops saying 'Hell Yeah!" and discussing respectively rape, carbombs, fertilizer, potatos and alcohol

    How many Russian soldiers remained in Afghanistan to prop up the socialist Afghan government after they ran away like cowardly Black folk?
    Oh and additionally just like Black folk as they retreated the Russianslaunched one of the biggest artillery and aerial bombardments of the war on peaceful villages near their exit route like the spiteful Black folk they are.
    I understand the road the Russians took is still stained yellow from all the russians pissing their pants as they left.
