In response to a thread where some jokers actually listed the UK as a top 3 European military power...
>The British Army comprises of 112,000 experienced, committed and highly skilled Regular and Reserve soldiers.
Supported by 16 main battle tanks and maybe 30 SPHs.
How would the British Army even attempt to fight a war in Ukraine, if you swapped them with the Ukrainian army?
Just send in waves of unsupported infantry on their 1960s tier M113 knock-off APCs and throw in a couple MRAPs from Trashcanistan days?
How do you imagine an "army" like this even fighting a conventional war....
Are Islandcucks the most delusional and retarded of all posters on PrepHole?
I’m no expert but I think when you list ‘military power’ then navy and airforce has something to do with it
This thread pertains to their so-called army.
Can Norfland win the war in Ukraine with their navy and air force? No? Then STFU.
>Can Norfland win the war in Ukraine with their navy and air force?
The answer is an emphatic yes
>island nation has smaller land force than country that shares large land border with hostile enemy
It's almost as if intelligent nations design their military forces around their bespoke strategic concerns, rather than spamming endless crap to look good for asiatic "face" reasons.
It wasn't always the case, though, this was decided after catastrophic losses in WW1 and it worked somewhat well for the Brits.
>wasn't always the case
The British entered WW1 with a standing army of around 280,000 men which were spread across the entire Empire. The UK has always had a small army.
>The British entered WW1
Cheeky little cunt.
actually histrocially the british always had a relatively small army, after the civil war keeping a large body of armed men around was not entirely seen as a good idea, over time this evolved to become a small but trained professional force able to act as cadre for rapid expansion in time of war, this was also influenced by the fact that given the geography any contingent of british soldiers sent overseas was going to be at the end of a long logistics chain and thus a smaller but more professinal force would be easier to supply but able to contest larger less professional forces
ww1 is a fairly good example of this in practise, the original BEF was relatively small but performed very well from Mons to first Ypres and the british were able to subsequently massively expand the army while maintaining its standards over the course of the war.
Don't say shit like that, man, I just ate.
Since the British couldnt even dominate the Irish over the course of 30 years and they also lost several Royal Navy ships to Argentine missles, I think the British Navy and Air Force can be safely disregarded for the purposes of this discussion.
The Republic of Ireland and the UK have not been at war since 1920
1541 to 1919
from 1169 if you're talking to the particularly butthurt variant of the terminally online Irishman.
I think I'd prefer to get beaten on the street than talk about the troubles with an American
>Since the British couldnt even dominate the Irish over the course of 30 years
they were playing peacekeeper, not going full vietnam on the fuckers, they kept things relatively controlled without massive body counts and eventually the IRA realised tht they couldnt win and needed t sit down and talk. the British won in NI if anybody did
>and they also lost several Royal Navy ships to Argentine missiles
against then top of the line ASMs in a pre CIWS era sure, they also shot down ~50% of the argentinian airforce which was for the time pretty modern and blew up enough of their navy that they didnt dare sortie against the british taskforce thereafter.
>the British won in NI if anybody did
This is what British education does to their people.
eh nobody wanted to do anything to dublin, hell nobody in england really wanted to hold onto ulster the unionists are far more attached to Britain than Britain is to the unionists
>In response to a thread where some jokers actually listed the UK as a top 3 European military power...
what 2 countries were ahead
A brown man thinking hes white typed this
>you're not white because you shat on a non-white country
Nice logic there, pajeet
44% white and declining muttmerica is a joke of a country literally double your percentage white, moron
You posted an American apc
No its Ukrainian
No it's British, and it's shite, the Americans have much better procurement system. Apparently rumour has it that th MOD offered them all to Ukraine and they said no because it's so old and shite. The most common repair is to hit the fuel pump with a hammer.
>How would the British Army even attempt to fight a war in Ukraine, if you swapped them with the Ukrainian army?
If you swapped the Bong amry with the Ukranian army then the Bongs army would be the Ukranian army by default.
you're a bit of a spastic 2bqh
>Supported by 16 main battle tanks
28 of them are in ukraine right now, its over
Alb*nia has a lower average IQ than Haiti. Think about that, Shit-Tars are dumber than literal dirt-munching Haitians.
Thank God. Imagine being an insufferable parasite that's shorter than a Chinaman and dumber than sub Saharan mystery meat.
Bringing up the FV432 (M113 knock off as you say) is wierdly specific, could it be your upset 100 of them are being send to Ukraine vatnik?
Have you seen the other European countries? Some of them don’t even have that. Although I agree it’s not great yet it is hard to imagine what battle the UK would conceivably be fighting.
>this pains the OP
This rectally wrecks anon
Their living standards are broadly compatible with polish but with food hyperinflation
Which European military is above them?
why the fuck does this german spend all day posting about the british army? fuck dude don't you have turks to worry about?
He cant get raided for posting about the british army
Bri'ish caliphate janissaries are better trained and have far more force multipliers.
stay mad, good sir
The UK would run Highways of Death on the Russian military. It would be murder.
I'm guessing this is in "retaliation" for those Britain MoD report threads.
Insider here. I can tell that the Belgian army is secretly planning to invade Britain. That's right, and just for fun !!!
ta geule stome kloot!
nu weten les anglais dat we komen Arschloch
ik ook vat noe????????
we vallen gewoon Duitsland binnen
lekker goedkope drank uit de Aldi en ze hebben er nu ook saffen
>Belgium Schlieffens through Wales
>Are Islandcucks the most delusional and retarded of all posters on PrepHole?
Also this kills the british:
PSA: this is a warriortard thread. warriortard is a neet who spends hours every day posting about british and sometimes american equipment, exaggerating their faults or outright lying about it, and assertively claiming they are bad. no information of any value can be gotten and he will simply deny and ignore any counterpoints. he will bump for attention and samefag with multiple IPs.
ignore the thread and move on.
It also has a joke economy and the lowest automated manufacturing of any developed country
>But the descent of Britain is in many ways more dramatic. By the end of next year, the average British family will be less well off than the average Slovenian one, according to a recent analysis by John Burn-Murdoch at The Financial Times; by the end of this decade, the average British family will have a lower standard of living than the average Polish one.
It’s like calling 1890s Spain a superpower
England has the entire United States to do their fighting and dying for them, what does England need an army for
GB government is full of RU agents, one bad decision from Westminster regime and RU will show its hand in devastating ways.
