>The design of war has changed

>The design of war has changed

I expressed my vision of important changes in the approach to warfare.

I am convinced that in order to defeat the enemy, we must be more mobile in tactics and means. We must use our unique experience in warfare and look for new capabilities and ways to gain an advantage.

In this context, technology has an undeniable advantage over tradition. They allow us to increase the number of non-contact combat operations and, as a result, reduce the level of losses.

I am confident that the future belongs to the latest technologies that will enable the Armed Forces of Ukraine to conduct effective operations. This is what we at the General Staff have been working on for a long time to radically change strategic approaches, the very philosophy of training and military and political decision-making.

In this article, I also outlined the main tasks for 2024 for the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

      He should run for President, and coke enjoyer Zelensky isn't clean. Refusal to cooperate on the Burisma et. al. pay for play with Russian & Chinese companies didn't save him in the end by either side.

      As a test bed for infantry drones and trench/structure clearing that is likely a surefire way to guarantee Western financial support at least; the shift will build up their industry and tech at the same time.

      Fake news, mostly. Internal pushback on the suicidal committing to all in to Melitopol is good for appearances, and can just as well be kayfabe for foreign consumption to assuage both sides of the argument; sclerotic Western political/military bureaucracies like to save face too.

      I know Russian and have decent knowledge of Ukrainian so I read some stuff online.

      According to what I read, he's getting fired because (a) the counteroffensive failed, (b) he has amazing approval ratings, on par or overtaking (depending on the pollster) Zelensky himself and (c) Zelensky is emotional and does not like being talked back to.

      On point (b) - the sources I've read say he doesn't really have political ambitions of his own in Ukraine, but does want a cushy job with NATO or some foreign think tank.

        Well if you're reading Ukrainian or Russian media you will more than likely come away more ignorant than you were before. The Russians lie and the Ukes vomit the first thing to come to their heads endlessly. A good Uke apologies afterwards though. It's a weird social callback to when they weren't allowed to say anything. Their media is dogshit. Like maybe you think Butosov plus is good. Compared to our idea of what a good journalist is he's terrible. Very brave though.

          Official Russian media are worthless and I don't know enough about Ukrainian media landscape to tell you what's any good, although I imagine something can be, as Ukrainian political landscape is a lot more chaotic and free than Russian.
          Meduza is quite onions and I wouldn't trust their reporting one bit when it comes to stuff like russians-in-exile (they have a lot of skin in the game there), but they have been quite factually accurate when it comes to the war itself.
          I also like what Konstantin Skorkin writes about Ukrainian politics (he usually writes for the Carnegie endowment). Think about that institution what you will, but he specifically has been quite accurate long before the war, so I imagine his sources are OK.

        Could be the Ukrainians did the math and figured that Russian offensives actually work to their benefit because they usually make inconsequential gains at an exorbitant cost of men and material. So they put out a bunch of vague rumors that Zelensky's having a Der Untergang moment and fool Putin into ordering his generals to go on the offensive immediately to capitalize on the perceived weakness.

            they are out of ammunition and vehicles. UAF have said themselves they have enough to defend but not NEARLY enough to attack (properly attack, not meat waves).

            F16s soon, other vehicles soon too. Just wait for more gibs, vehicles, ammo and rained soldiers while simultaneously going all-in on drone variants/prototypes - while successfully testing them on high value russian targets that are balls deep behind the lines - seems to be the smartest move right now for Ukraine

      There isn't going to be a civil war in Russia unless millions of conscripts die, the war is lost, and people starve in the streets of Moscow. The Russian psyche is that of a slave which is happy to suffer as long as his master is great and powerful. Before that perception crumbles and things become dire even for the Muscovites there will be no uprisings. And that's just not happening unless NATO starts directly sabotaging Russia.

        Why would it last decades if poccia is losing equipment at an extremely fast rate, all while their dogshit economy is dying? If the vatniks continue to lose shit at a rate similar to the last 2 years, they'll barely have anything in 2-3 years tops. Who is gonna save them then, China, Iran, and the norks?
        At every single point of this conflict, the only thing standing between poccia being crushed on the field is the west's decision not to arm Ukraine to the fullest. At any point, this decision could change. But even if it doesn't, all Ukraine has to do is keep beating the shit out of the russian economy and demolishing the meatwave attacks. They don't even need to push to their pre-2014 borders on their own. They just need to wait out poccia. And they're getting the support to do so.
        Oh, and even if the vatniks stop suicide rushing, it won't help them. TAD is ongoing, and Ukraine is dominating the air more and more. If the vatniks go on the defensive, the Ukranians will bleed them out effectively while suffering fewer losses.

    Hungary had a higher corruption index in the most recent dataset, and it's literally impossible for this war to demographically deplete them when the current conscription age cutoff is at 27. They're only now considering lowering it to 25.

    You're an utter fricking moron, russians will have completely ran out of AFVs three times before Ukies start experiencing any real demographic depletion, their biggest problem right now is the necessity to rotate out veterans and replace them with fresh troops.

    If you look at footage from 2023 and 2024, you can clearly see how russian army is becoming more and more like a fricking sandBlack person army - untrained disposable foot infantry replacing mechanized units, useless regular mechanized units that can't do basic tasks, and a small "republican guard" (vdv, maybe morpeh) that's kinda useful but still can't match the enemy man for man. It's a slow-rolling disaster with russian armed forces getting more and more demechanized with every passing year. If you watch footage from 2022, the difference in the amount of heavy equipment is absolutely jarring.

    The war will end when either russia collapses or the russian army collapses because the lack of AFVs and other crucial equipment will drive average losses beyond the level at which the russian mobilization system can shit out replacements. Ukraine is going to win an attritional war with russia. All they need to do is outlast russia's capacity to wage an offensive war, they don't even need to be winning any operations.

    Just to drive this point further home, the whole SMO is basically russia's attempt at regime change followed by "nation building" (or, in this case, russification). It's basically what Americans pulled off in Iraq after 21 days of ground war and 8+ years of insurgency (not sure about the cutoff here, but 2011 is charitable so let's roll with that). Russia is on day 700+ of ground war and is currently losing - and they haven't even started the hard part yet.

      Egypt objectively outperformed Russia during the Yom Kippur War alone.

      They had to both cross the Suez Canal (which had no bridges) and storm Israel's Bar-Lev Line, a chain of modern fortifications which ran the length of the canal and did both within a matter of hours using ingenuity and careful planning, at a negligible cost in lives.

    I'm not opposed to Zaluzhny being fired. Different brains in charge can bring new ideas into action. Lincoln fired like 5 generals before he got a set that could win him the Civil War.

      But Zaluzhny should be in charge of training the new recruits. He is too important and experienced to simply leave the war.

      Ukraine needs him.

      The US military has a long history (before the last thirty years or so) of pretty rapidly cycling through generals in overall command based on their results in theater, it wasn't seen as career ending to have to step down because it happened so often and to almost everyone. It was more of a case of your particular skillset and approach just not matching the current problems rather than you being a failure, not that it ever felt good - you generally need a pretty sizeable ego to get that far in any organization after all.

      It's really only an apocalyptic situation for honor cultures where thin skin and eating Ls for the sake of maintaining appearances govern decision making.

        Pretty much this.

        I don't think if your goal is winning a war you should ever rule out removing ineffective leaders. Z man is not bad, but clearly not the type of guy to crack the nut. I really, seriously do not believe that modern problems have some how changed the nature of war, I think there is a serious issue within the Ukrainian Military of executing what they were taught by NATO in the offense. The senior leadership seems pretty incapable of loosening the reigns on the lower echelons in order to focus on orchestrating large-scale actions. Case in point the numerous reported instances of senior leaders commanding via-drone feed/. Like we're talking a Colonel micromanaging a platoon or company defense via mavik footage.

        The failure of the counter offensive looks to me (admittedly limited scope/outside observer) like a failure to properly shape the battlefield (Ukrainians basically only relied on drone reconnaissance instead of getting people on the ground who are able to detect things like mines) and a failure to commit and concentrate forces on a single axis.

        It's combat, in order to impose your will on the enemy you have to be willing to accept some level of injury. Obviously there's some serious nuance here; mass and focus won't carry you through alone (russian experience in Avdiivka).

        My assessment is that despite NATO projections that a breakthrough was possible with some units suffering high casualties the Ukrainians got their nose bloodied once or twice and then spread their new units across the front and gave up on attacking. Ukrainian's weren't able to synchronize and orchestrate their offensive actions on a large scale, and had piss-poor results because of it resulting in them erroneously believing it's something which the enemy (transparent battlefield, minefields, drones ect. ect.) did rather than something they did (fail to execute basic fundamental tenants of maneuver warfare) with a lot of them buying into the tool box fallacy.

          I think you made a fair assessment but I also think there were failures all around. Even if the Ukrainians had the will, training, and organizational acumen to try out the NATO plan, they weren't properly armed and supplied for it by their allies and their gripes about a transparent battlefield etc. aren't ungrounded. No NATO army would EVER attempt an attack into a fortified enemy line without air superiority. Period.

          • 4 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            The thing about the tool box falacy, is that in many cases it really does speak to a real problem or injunction. However, I think the assertion that the reason they failed was the lack of tools is misleading. Certainly air supperiorty would of helped, but by the same token if the Ukrainians are failing to organize a battalion attack (several reported instances of friendly fire, continued use of smallest echelons possible in the attack) what makes anyone think they would be able to effectively integrate air in the kind of way a NATO force does?

            Ultimately as it pertains to a ground commander, what you need in general is just Fires, it doesn't really mater where it comes from so long as it achieves the same/similar effects.

            From my experience working at the Brigade staff level I think with regards to the counter-offensive we have half a case of a poor-workman blaming his tools and half of a case of said workman actually having shit tools.

            Everyone is focusing on the fact that his tools are shit and not that he may or may not know how to use them correctly.

              I think playing the blame game in this war is ultimately pointless. No matter what the reason things are the way they are at the moment, this current stalemate can only be broken out of by TZD, and that will take both more and better weapons, AND better training and command from their officers. Say what you want about Zaluzhny but he pointed that fact out and didn't blame anyone in particular for his failures.

                To me it seems he conveniently assigns blame to what he was given instead of taking responsibility himself. If I were in Zelensky's position i would be taking a hard look about my other available options for top guy. If every one was worse than Zaluzhny he keeps his job. If there's anything better or some one with a new idea, alright you're up to the bat.

                Zaluzhny's not a terrible general, clearly better than the Yes men Putin has throwing ziggers into the grinder but, I'm not sure he's the *best man* for the problem right now, definitely worth keeping around even if you replace him in some other compacity. At the same time you also pursue addressing the logistical woes.

                If you're serious about winning I don't believe you should have any sacred cows and seriously investigate every avenue of addressing the problem.

          Their biggest mistake was focusing on retaking Ukrainian land, while they should've done TZD. Just dig in, and TZD. TZD until their army collapses. If you think about it, almost all of Ukraine's success were based on TZD.

            That's why they stopped the counteroffensive early. They realized it wouldn't be effective very quickly into it, stopped, pulled back, and are now focusing on inflicting massive losses on the Russians. Which is working, the casualty rates are staggeringly in Ukraine's favour and if the war continues like this, Russia WILL run out of equipment and manpower long before Ukraine.

            Ziggers online try to spin this as a Russian victory "xaxa counteroffensyiv failed *~~)".

            On the one hand, yes.
            On the other hand, TZD means sitting back and letting the Russians run down the Geneva checklist on all the Ukrainians living behind the front lines. Every day the UAF waits is a day that Putin can rape/loot/abduct/replace locals with churkas/dig in/gloat about how much land he still controls/etc. I really don't think we can blame the Ukrainians for at least trying to get as much of the land back as quick as they can.

    Ukraine isn't on the edge of immediate collapse. Zelensky and the government are incentivized to shill how dire their situation is so the gibs keep coming.

    But, the attritional war ain't good for Ukraine I don't think. If they want out of the attritional warfare, then they need a Western airforce, preferably US coalition, to intervene. If that was gonna happen it would have already. Or, they need a coup/mutiny/revolt/pestilence. Which aren't likely, but they do happen

    As it looks now, Ukraine is forced to fight this kinda war and just hope Russia/Russians get tired of it and give up. Which could happen in a year, or two, or 8 years from now. Lots can happen between now and defeat

    Russia can send men and material to die for a longer time than Ukraine can can send men and material to get in their way. This is of something Ukrainian planners should be considering

    >Gigachad Norway kicking in $75 billion from their sovereign wealth fund
    >first batch of special-order GLSDB just arrived
    So this is what a copium overdose does to the vatnik mind.

      >50 billion Euros in aid finally announced by the EU Parliament
      Bullshit. The European Council approved a package, the parliament can't do shit.

        That was my bad, I'm not up to speed on the inner workings of the EU governing bodies. That said:
        >An official text, published by the EU Council, said that the 27 member states had approved €50 billion ($54 billion) to be sent to Ukraine from 2024 to 2027. It detailed €33 billion “in the form of loans” and €17 billion in “non-repayable support” that could be “generated from frozen Russian assets. The text makes multiple mentions of the money being used as part of Ukraine’s path to joining the bloc.
        So I wouldn't go so far as to say the 50 billion Euros in aid is "bullshit".

      it's for 4 years and €33 billion of those €50 billion of it are loans.
      €17 billion grants over four years is €4.25/year.

    Look, I'm no expert, but I lived in China for a while and my Chinese girlfriend worked in hospitals and public health. A vast number of Chinese citizens simply don't exist outside of basic census results. They're elderly and generally rural folk who simply have no official documentation of their existence because of the autistic cut-off periods that CCP introduced during modernisation. Some of them have names in localised dialects that literally could not be entered into digital databases early on, and so they may exist as two incomplete identities that just fall through the cracks. In extremely poor communities, te elderly and terminally ill intentionally fall off the radar in order not to prompt a government investigation that might have their homes condemned. On top of this, I've seen personally how even hospital admin, distanced from party politics, are instructed by superiors to cook the books in pursuit of lower transmission, accident and fatalities. An entire ward got food poisoning? Downgrade it to "expressed dissatisfaction with meals" and reprimand the kitchen. 8 patients died from the flu because nurse Wu didn't change her gloves? Move the dead patients to different rooms retroactively and have a staff training seminar on proper reporting procedure. An entire ward caught COVID because the exhaust fans were spliced into the AC to save money? Those that survive were now never sick in the first place, and all the elderly dead actually died due to a variety of complications that can't be proven before they've been cremated/buried. When everyone in your society, down to nursing students, will lie and coverup deaths reflexively, you can never trust a single data point.

    The counter-offensive failed because conducting an assault through a minefield is one of the most challenging thing a military can do. While Bakhmut was grinding on the Russians deployed MASSIVE minefields and deep, multi-layered lines of fortifications. To assault across that you need not only well-trained troops with good comms, you need good mine-clearing equipment, engineering troops, artillery and air support, and close co-ordination between participating military branches. On top of that it requires practice to actually pull off. Ukraine simply didn’t have all of these elements lined up, so, as the triple-digit IQs among us pointed out at the time, of course the counter-offensive was going to fail. And the minefields just didn’t disappear, they’re still there narrowing the front into a cou-le of brutal grinding kill zones in which it’s hard for anyone to move, This favors Russia because they want the conflict to freeze, for the war to leave the news cycle and the West to lose interest — so that the aid stops. He’s 100% correct that Ukraine NEEDS to mobilize a LOT of people to make up for all the things they don’t have. He’s RIGHT to face the reality of slow Western aid.

    And another thing — Russians literally, unironically don’t care about their manpower losses. The people who’re dying are almost entirely minorities — separatist Ukranians, Tajiks, Asians, etc. I’ve come to believe that Russians ("white" Russians of Western Russia) don’t even really think of those people as Russians. So they can die in mass amounts and Russians that matter don’t care in the slightest. They’ll support the war while simultaneously refusing to participate in it — because that’s for minority cattle to go die for. So as long as Putin can find minorities, separatists, felons, mercs, etc, to fill the ranks he’ll probably be under no real popular pressure to end the war.

      Yeah, they do make a lot of cars and other hardware in Hungary. Not just European stuff, but I think some US and Japanese companies' products too. Maybe the bargain energy they somehow keep receiving from Russia helps with that.
      Wonder how long that can last, though---some Russian talking heads are clearly very unhappy with Orban after he gave up on blocking the EU's Ukraine aid.

      For France, it's some high level geopolitical/real politik bullshit where they see the US as an enemy to defeat for control of Europe and Russia is an ally to help do that. They were even selling high quality thermal optics into Russia up until the invasion. For Germany is simple, Schulz is straight up a commie plant from the cold war who wants the USSR back and global communism.

    Yeah the idea of secret backroom deals with Zaluzhny and Garasimov sounded like complete nonsense (do either of them even have the consititutional authority to do what the article implies? I doubt it), but that tagline "Zelensky regime" it showed it's hand too much, what a false and homosexual article.
