The only tank was a T-34 Posted on May 9, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor What the fuck is this real life? Russiabros, status report?
Many such cases
Reminder that in over 20 cities the parade was cancelled outright.
That wasn't the one available tank in Moscow.
It was the one available tank in the entire southern part of European Russia.
I'm still sad no one killed it during the parade.
It's Russian, so it will probably kill itself pretty soon.
The ukies were planning to rain on their parade but the drone operator was laughing uncontrollably and couldn't fire.
two of them apparently died under their own power before the parade
No, there's only supposed to be one, that's how it's been for years. They bring three because the first two might not start.
have a nice day retard
You're right, "years" is an exaggeration, but going from last years' template, it's just one, and when you're dealing with shit this old, having backups on hand is just prudent.
yeah gay and what could have POSSIBLY happened between 2020 and today that would render Moscow incapable of maintaining a dozen or so T-34/85s for showboating?
they didn't need """backups""" then, why now, huh?
b-b-b-because fuck you!
You stupid fucking moron, of course they had backups even when they were running a company. Like I said, it's the nature of dealing with 80-year-old machines that sometimes it's just not going to work, even under the best of circumstances. They planed a slot for one tank, so they ran one tank, wither it was the first one they tried to start or the third.
>They planed a slot for one tank
>one tank (total, in the entire parade)
local vatmoron sees nothing wrong with this statement
you are also insisting as fact your opinion, there is no evidence of "backups" in past parades - outside of the "deliberate" T-14 failure some years back - why would you bring a malfunctioning machine on site at all? these tests are done ahead of time... if you have competent tanker crews at home who aren't being sent off to die in trenches because you have too few tanks for them to actually man, that is
there is a reason the lads furthest from the front (where shipping them to die is impractical) also managed to scrounge together a better parade than the fucking capital
cope harder gay
Post military pageantry experience, and then shut your stupid fucking mouth that can't tell the difference between "they planned a retarded parade" and "they planned a retarded parade and then fucked it up".
The last refuge of actual retardation
>I was a drum jockey for a parade once, in a country where parades run heavy equipment extremely rarely, so I know how Russian parades REALLY work!
No you don't, shut the fuck up and take the beating in silence like a man or admit you were wrong
As a fellow ToG vet, go fuck yourself.
Fuck your mother and your sister who fucked your mother, and your father who fucked both of them, and your neighbors who fucked your dog, who fucked your pet parrot who you kiss to sleep. May your dreams of being useful die. I wank to your eventual exile from the memory of people. I dream to buy your uniform and fuck the mud with it, for that is the only soil it will ever feel.
Butoh anak babi
they realized that nothing they could do would embarrass Russia more than what Russia was already doing to itself
The funnier part is that they canceled those marches, where you walk around with a portrait of your ancestors that died in WW2.
It's a neat tradition but some theorize that the reason for canceling it is, to not draw attention to the amount of losses in Ukraine too much
>It's a neat tradition but some theorize that the reason for canceling it is, to not draw attention to the amount of losses in Ukraine too much
The parade would go on until hours after sunset
No, its fake and bullshit. There were no parades at all for decades and only intermittently. This victory day crap is bullshit for putin. The parades they had marked the October revolution because they were fucking commies.
>Critics, which even include Igor Dmitriev (the founder of the Immortal Regiment), have primarily alleged that the procession has turned into an attempt by the government to promote its own domestic and foreign policies, rather than to honor the memories of the millions who perished in the war
>Since 2015, the President Vladimir Putin and senior Russian officials have participated in the procession in Moscow.
I think the government is down with these happening
Are you raving about the tradition itself, or how it has been politizised?
I agree that in the context of a country whose whole national identity is built around larping as its former empires it's kinda awkward to have a large event where you show pride for something your grandpa did decades ago.
Its not a tradition is a recent fake pile of bullshit and you and putin are both larping cunts
>"After the 1945 parade, Victory Day became obsolete in the Soviet Union, with parades only being held on major jubilee, in part to make favor for the October Revolution Day parade which took place every year in the winter. In the decades that followed, 3 parades were held: in 1965, 1985, and 1990.
>Parades were not held between 1991 and 1994, partly because First Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Burbulis thought of it as impractical primarily based on the state of the country at that time, particularly in terms of costs and expenses"
It is an obvious protest move for people to carry around pictures of their dead friends, sons, brothers, and fathers. If you arrest them it makes you look even worse.
Plus, they have plausible deniability as one might due such a thing out of patriotism, to highlight the renewed sacrifice, but also to attack the regime for wasting lives.
Pictures of hundreds of Russians holding photos of recently killed 18-25 year old men is a nightmare for the Kremlin and censoring it would have prompted its own backlash from the right wing too.
I'm surprised no one chose to do it anyway. What are they going to do, have riot police charge rows of widows, mothers, and orphaned children holding pictures of their martyred fathers? Sounds like one of the types od things that kicked off nationwide riots in WWI.
>Implying Russia wouldn't send it riot police to arrest children.
People don't protest because they disappear into the rape/torture apparatus and no one knows when they'll reappear.
are we going to see a WagnerJugend soon?
You joke, but german army training in the beginning of the war profited tons from the basic paramilitary training so many young men went through. American military scientist wrote about that after the war.
>American military scientist wrote about that after the war.
Got a link/citation to the paper? Would like to read up.
Holy shit, you might be right, i thought why the fuck they even cancelled this shit in the first place?
>I'm surprised no one chose to do it anyway. What are they going to do, have riot police charge rows of widows, mothers, and orphaned children holding pictures of their martyred fathers?
Yes, maybe however everyone who saw it is dead or in a gulag. There is no film or photo and if there is it is a lie by Russians enemies. This is the way.
>What are they going to do, have riot police charge rows of widows, mothers, and orphaned children holding pictures of their martyred fathers?
Anon, this is Russia we're talking about, where security forces will gas your children and then drug you on live TV for complaining about it.
Russia might not have as many school shootings as the US, but when they do, by God they give it their all.
>Deaths 334 (excluding terrorists)
this will never not make me laugh
>What are they going to do, have riot police charge rows of widows, mothers, and orphaned children holding pictures of their martyred fathers?
I mean, now that we know they flashbang, shell, missile strike, air strike, shoot, kidnap, deport, separate from children, rape, torture and execute the Russian-speaking people they claim to "save" in Ukraine – would you really put it past them?
At risk of being a nootrooler, one of the biggest copes from the pro-Ukraine side is
>in two weeks, the Russian people will learn how subhuman their leaders are
If you took a Russian man, raped and murdered his wife in front of him, decapitated his daughter and shit down her neck, thoroughly sodomized him for 45 minutes, then told him that you are part of the government and this brutalization was actually part of a grander strategy to defeat the West; he would celebrate it. It would be a point of pride that his family was murdered and he got raped for the Russian state. The Russians that would be upset are trying to flee the country.
You don't even need to go that far.
What happens if Russians finally see Putin as the dictator trying to re-invent the USSR he always was? They'll just be killed and/or arrested. It changes nothing. This idea that one of the most continous authoritarian, brutal countries in the world depends on the population's will and opiniton to go to war or to keep its government in power is a liberal, if not American-centric, joke. Same thing with China. They don't need the involvement of the actual population to do anything and if that population starts to disobey and go against the central autocracy/Big Daddy figure leading them, they'll just be killed en masse like hundreds of times before, it doesn't matter.
Most "westerns", Americans and British people specifically, don't think a place with hundreds of millions of people living in it can work this way, but it does.
>Implying the Riot Police weren't send to the front lines to ensure the mobniks didn't retreat
They have special blocking units that prevent retreats and dissertiin by killing retreating/deserting soldiers
Doesn't work that well as you can imagine
are those special blocking units in the room with with us?
No they're in Ukraine retard
>It's a neat tradition
It is not a neat tradition and they are also commemorating the Russians that died invading Poland as Hitlers allies and the NKVD murderers. Its a shitty tasteless attempt b y Putin to Hitch himself onto Stalin who was himself an utter cunt as bad in every way as Hitler. Now they larp as Orthodox Christians do they? Waving teh flags of Lenin and Stalins state atheist nightmare that massacred clergy and the faithful? Their 'victory' day crap only started under Putin and it can get fucked.. It is fake as fuck.
"After the 1945 parade, Victory Day became obsolete in the Soviet Union, with parades only being held on major jubilee, in part to make favor for the October Revolution Day parade which took place every year in the winter. In the decades that followed, 3 parades were held: in 1965, 1985, and 1990.
Parades were not held between 1991 and 1994, partly because First Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Burbulis thought of it as impractical primarily based on the state of the country at that time, particularly in terms of costs and expenses" Just putin bullshit
Nicholas II lost
>Nicholas II lost
You know who lost? Lenin, Stalin and now Putin. Just like Hitler. All in the shitty murdering dictator club together.
Sorry but Stalin did nothing but win. It's intellectually dishonest to imply otherwise.
>walk around with a portrait of your ancestors that died in WW2.
with a portrait of any relative that died in any of the wars russia has been involved AT ANY POINT IN HISTORY.
Now imagine if bum-fuck Ulan-Ude had all the boomers realize they lost a relative in 2022 because all the babushkas are now carrying COLOR photograph.
>That wasn't the one available tank in Moscow.
That's St Petersburg.
There WERE a few other t-34s parked in the background at one point, but none of them were running.
>but none of them were running.
They barely ran when they were new.
that's actually badass I'd have loved one of those when i was a kid
... i want one and i'm not even a kid
Do they have this in a M4 Sherman? Asking for a friend...who has kids.
oh man those are awesome! just like those East German scout tanks from the 60s.
That's a ukrainian military parade!
>That's a ukrainian military parade!
it is, the only tank in putins parade was an T-34 build in Ukraine
due to the unexpected strong resistance made by ukies. the vatnik parade was forced to be like this.
Just guess, guess how vatnik would showoff in May 9th 2022 and today, if they really took kiev in 1h22m. guess how western and eastern vatnik fans would humiliating us if their master really made this into a second gulf war.
Despite no ukrainian presense in that square, this parade is the result of the most crazy ukrainian military parade since the era of Cossacks.
So, this parade is, indeed, a ukrainian military parade.
>leave PrepHole for a few months
>return to find out that Russian is now parading around one single t-34
What the actual fuck
It's a feint, Russia will win in 14 days.
Does this include weekends, or only business days?
It's in Venusian business days.
Right on schedule then.
It's Mercurian days actually.
That T-34 they probably had to buy from Laos
It isn't even Russian they were made in Czechoslovakia.
Ok, but why no T-62 or T-55? There are plenty enough of them around, no?
That's prime Frontline, cutting edge modern Russian military hardware. Has to go the front, no time for parades
They didn't have the means to repair them in time for the parade. Museums take care of their tanks better than the Russians do.
>What the fuck is this real life? Russiabros, status report?
No tanks aside form a t34, some crappy looking trucks and a nuke launcher mobile truck that failed its last test . They really have nothing left.
>The 2023 parade was one of the shortest ever to be held in Russian history. Alongside just 11,000 personnel in the march past segment, just less than 80 vehicles took part in the mobile column, with just a T-34/85 medium tank paraded that day, the only armored presence that year.
>In addition, there was no air flypast column for the second year in a row.
The world is kekking at Russia.
Russia has lost over 20000 military vehicles, artillery pieces, aircraft and ships. In one year. Russia holds a victory parade with a solitary tank from ww2 and some trucks. Oh my sides. Ziggers BTFO.
The jokes about North Korea being able to annex the Russian Far East are rapidly becoming more realistic by the day.....
If Russia didn't have Nukes, North Korea could 100% do it.
The norks have them too. I just don't know if they have any missiles that could carry one to Moscow or St. Petersburg.
Issue is if North Korea invaded, Russia could just nuke pyongyang and face zero retribution for it. Everyone would be "they deserved it".
>NATO will bitch about the fallout on sk if the nuked too much.
>nuking pyongyang won't stop the invasion, the troops will still move forward and once in Vladivastok Russia wouldn't be able to nuke it.
>no logistic in siberia, if nk can yolo rush a major portion of the coast then Russia won't be able to supply anything.
they can do it only way to get out of this is if putin sucks xi cock hard enough to get china to invade nk
There is also a slight issue regarding the fact that we know North Koreas nuclear weapons and missiles actually work, Russias not so much.
If you do the math the North Korean army could invade Vladivostok by making a huge line of all their armor from the border to the edge of the city and have their troops get more than halfway there by walking on the vehicles roofs.
Russia has failed it's last three missile tests, the DPRK does them successfully several times a month. Russia hasn't successfully tested a nuke in over three decades and it is extremely doubtful as to the reliability of what they still have; the DPRK has tested six successfully.
Due to basic physics Moscow is significantly easier to reach than the US with the DPRKs missiles, Russia wouldn't dare try to launch against a nation's whose atomic weapons is designed to hit the USA which is a MUCH more difficult target than Russia. Additionally we have definitive proof that North Korean missile launching submarines can fire their missiles at least three times in a row without exploding, something which is doubtful in regards to Russia.
Russia is afraid to nooooook Ukraine, the idea that would do so against a nation capable of retaliating is laughable.
>DPRK has tested six successfully
they've actually tested nukes? Thought it was just the missiles, surely if they detonated a nuke everyone would know about it
>they've actually tested nukes? Thought it was just the missiles, surely if they detonated a nuke everyone would know about it
have you been living under a rock?
They tested their nukes underground, and yes, everyone knows about it thanks to seismological data.
Didn't that underground structure collapse a couple years ago?
Holy shit yes, from the seismic data and radiation byproducts we know one of them was a H-bomb trigger. You need to be 18 to use this site.
Trips confirm protec
Kim shouldn't bully his client state, it isn't polite even if his typical parade does have more functioning armor than the entire Russian military.
Part of it, the H-Bomb was the last straw, they have a serious issue with finding test locations.
Why isn't Kim sending his M2020's to Russia?
What's in it for him?
Well, it's North Korea... I am sure they can get something out of it.
They already get food and fuel for shells, actual equipment would cost money and they historically demand gold for that which Russian desperately needs. Russia can't really afford to buy their stuff which would be honestly quite useful. They can't offer them military technology because Russia has nothing they want.
Koksans, heavy MLRS, 125mm turrets to put on T-62s, T-62 upgrades ect are all things Russia could really use. Song gun ho IVs would actually be really damn useful due to it's number of indirect fire/popup weapons but Putin really can't offer anything that they want especially since you are just pissing away money if you put a Russian crew in them.
Yeah in theory Russia could hire the entire Pyongyang Division with all the fancy shit and fanatic volunteers to smash a hole in the Ukrainian lines but it would cost something like their entire gold reserve, all the Japanese islands Russia currently occupies and Putin's last cancer ridden nut.
>number of indirect fire/popup weapons
It has two 30mm automatic grenades launchers as well as AA and ATGM launchers on pop up masts. It can hide behind obstacles only exposing the launchers while raining down grenades like mortars.
It is designed to be as frustrating and annoying as possible without actually engaging in a direct one on one fight except at close range.
It isn't legal (hahaha) to test above ground any more.
Kim's daughter is a cutie. She needs to be protected at all costs.
>Kim's daughter is a cutie.
Would (buy thin mints from).
Kim said Russia was going to win today. I dunno if that's him trolling Putin or he's just retarded.
probably bad trolling, which would be on point with Kim
>Russia is afraid to nooooook Ukraine, the idea that would do so against a nation capable of retaliating is laughable.
If Russia nuked Ukraine they would be retaliated against by multiple countries
Honestly, what’s the likelihood they could get those missiles to hit North Korea and not hit China or SK? I’d assume they still have pre-programmed targets for the west and I have doubts about their ability to change those.
Please best korea. Do something right
>When she notices your 'parade'
>missiles that could carry one to Moscow or St. Petersburg.
They successfully test them almost weekly; meanwhile the last 3 Satan 2 tests all ended in failure due to Russia's use of backwards liquid fueled rockets unlike the DPRKs superior solid fueled technology.
NK could invade right now, get vladivastock + 100km of buffer and Russia won't be able to do anything against it. The only option would be nook NK, but, unless they use half of their nooks they won't wipe the NK military enough to push them without a logistic line
I honestly hope that happens. Preferably right after Putin gets unputin'd.
Why is she so fat? Did this bitch eat the other tanks?
two front war ? dishonarabru
>upskirt sneak peak of their Rolexes
K-k-kim sama...I...i......It's..It's. It's time to laaaaunch!
North Korea desperately needs farmland. If any territory up there is at all suitable for growing crops they'd be negligent not to try and take it. Who could blame a starving man for stealing food?
Kim Jong un actually got put in line by building the Nampo dam which prevents salt water infiltration in the Nampo basin thus creating huge amounts of farm land. His Father approved because he himself got put in line by creating the west sea tidal barrier which did the same on the other coast.
By completing the project on it allowed Pyongyang to connect their river/canal system to both coasts so their navy can move between coasts without going around the RoK as well as allow them to make money by letting medium sized cargo ships cut across the yellow sea from the PRC, this saves a significant amount of fuel costs for northern Chinese exporters.
Are you retarded or just spreading misinformation? This is like some shit ai bot that is wrong in every way.
Nampo Dam is the same thing as the west sea tidal barrier.
construction started under Kim Jong Il one year after Un was born.
There is no dam in the east of North Korea and no canal or other means of transferring ships across the country's mountains.
The raised water levels actually removed a substantial amount of agricultural land along the river, land which was more important than raising the water level. The whole project was a farce.
fucking based kim. The Chinks keep him around for a reason
Why no fly-bys? I thought that Aero-Vatnik Imperial was still relatively intact compared to geound forces.
Nope. Meme airforce too. No pilots, no money for training. Not enough money to maintain planes. Corruption. No western parts. No Ukrainian aerospace for parts. Too many softies. Too many shoot downs. Completely emasculated. They'd have been better off with a smaller, better maintained airforce, but they desperately needed to LARP as a great power.
>less than 80 vehicles took part in the mobile column, with just a T-34/85 medium tank paraded that day
B-but time is on Russias side you guys.
Europe will freeze this winter.
someone please tell this bro to wear a hat

you're so fucking stupid lol, the pics are in this thread XD
low tier posts
>no air flypast column
Isn't this more to keep pilots from kamikaze-crashing into putin or something? As far as I know most air superiority assets are still intact so it's not like there isn't enough planes in all of russia to form a six flight team
pic is from St. Petersburg though, init?
Yes it looks like that
that is pidorsburg alright
>"What's up you little pidor? So you like men? You like big muscular men? You like getting fucked by men in sailor tank tops, you suka pidor? You'd like that would you? You like kissing men? You like kissing twenty rough men? On the lips? Like army men? Like paratroopers? Answer me, suka pidor!"
The paratrooper guy looks so much hotter than the fag, ironic.
Russia has one tank, but oikraina supported by gorillions $ from NATO still can't win. Cope more cuc/k
The scary part is that this could be a genuine, if slightly satirical, pro-Russian post
Dude, 4chantards have been in the "Russia is ackshually an underdog in this conflict" cope for a good few weeks now. I can't decide whether it's more hilarious or pathetic.
To be fair that's the narrative Russia itself has been pushing since the parade last year
>This is the great patriotic war 2.0, a defensive existential struggle against all of NATO
because otherwise their performance so far would look kinda embarrassing
This is a Latvian 4th May military parade in a provincial town for comparison
Those are not tanks tho dumbass.
Glad to say my taxes are going to this meme shit
the m109 hull itself has almost the same amount of armor as a late war t-34 hull in the front to be fair
we have pastabros for that
and it's two more SPG's then there were in moskov
This year's June 2 parade might be good tho:
>far right government
To me a huge ass military parade is a no brainer, from a electoral perspective. Usually they're kept reasonable in size (i.e. small) as they cost a fuckton of money and serve no real purpose other than submitting an entry on the global penis size contest. Right wing heads of state tend to make them fancier, but then again the electoral base usually considers it a waste. This year however things might be different, we'll see.
amazing to see any exist, those homes in jurmala are tempting
Can't wait for the Polish parade later this year.
>cannons not elevated to the exact same degree
They probably are, anon, you can rest the 'tism.
Did you know the Abrams turret and soviet Hinds are not symmetrical from the front?
This makes me think - where the fuck are the other T-34s?
The lack of "modern" tanks is no surprise as they've been tossing their turrets left and right for the past year, but the T-34s should still be in storage for the parade and what have you, right? So why was there only one running?
Are we going to see what I think we're going to see? Are the russians going to be sending fucking parade T-34s to the front?
They stopped maintaining them. They had to buy T-34s from a few post-Soviet states to have running ones for their parades
Probably lacking maintenance resources to keep them running. It’s not like they would have any use beyond parade queening.
Will people finally admit Russia doesn't have unlimited tanks?
Real talk, how many of those on top are already dead?
According to Wikipedia, the T-72s in 2019 parade were from the he 2nd Guards MRD. Part of the 1st Guards Tank Army.
The 1st took heavy losses but little about the division itself can be found. So either they lost all their shit over time, or they were giving their shit away to the 4th guards rank after they got mauled and lost their T-80s.
Maybe putin was afraid to be near operational tanks? Turbulent times, even in highest ranks of military ..
Russia got tanks, but sadly not ready for parade.
that autumn brown coloring suits them really well
Such things as these cherished tanks
scattered maple leaves
Vehicles gone, more and more,
The sound of water
Russia does have a shit ton of tanks, but they are not up to any standard that could be considered "running" or "combat capable" or are flat out dysfunctional.
Who did it better in 2023, PrepHole?
The Kremlin or some Louisiana truck stop?
>Louisiana truck stop tank parade
Dunno if it's the same this year, but last year Ukies did a victory "parade" by placing a bunch of bruned out and captured Russian tanks along the street. Probably same deal this year
Captured T-90M was spotted being towed in Louisiana.
It was a T-90A, not M.
Why should I?
Avoid getting shot in the face later.
Is this some kind of weird fever dream or did it actually happen? Why the fuck would Ukraine waste time and money doing that? And in Louisiana of all places?
It's crazy to think that not along this tank was in some open field in Ukraine fighting and then ended up far away from home on a random truck stop in Louisiana.
man if i saw that thing i would pay that truck driver unreasonable amounts of money to poke around inside.
I think just about every other post office in Wisconsin has an M60 or AH1 parked outside it.
In my small rural town we have a Viper, a thunderchief and some kind of howitzer scattered around
It physically hurts to watch. Imagine being that one dude who has to stick out of the only armored vehicle of the whole parade, saluting before crying Putin surrounded by old men and teen boys in dress uniforms.
It's the exact same vibes as Hitler giving out Iron Crosses to Hitlerjugend in March 1945.
To be fair to Russia there were no right moves here. They'd get criticized in any case
>don't show tanks
>everyone laughs at you
>hurr why are they not on the frontlines!
Isn't a T34 tank made by a Ukrainian constructor?
No, people are mistaking the plant where they were produced with the designer.
The designer was a Russian candy-maker before he went into tank design. The tank itself WAS produced in Kharkiv, but not the designer.
Russian military is down to one T-34 tank. Should be easy win for Ukraine
Imagine having a fake and gay victory parade while you're loosing a war
>Russiabros, status report?
Every single vatnik is like "das right all armor is in Ukraine no need for any more tanks it's just a parade"
Imagine sneaking an HE shell into the gun and blapping Cancerman and his smirking cronies as you drive by.
But I imagine they've thought of just such a scenario.
Tell me this is a shitpost. I refuse to believe it.
Meanwhile North Koreas latest parade
If only we could solve the mystery of where all of Russia's equipment upgrades ATGMs, sensors and active protection systems meant to modernize their tank fleet went...............
You're retarded if you really think the Norks have a working APS. Those canisters are either empty or just smoke.
Making them with sheet metal really helps.Surprised the russians didn't try that.
>wows the plebes
>many of them
>work well enough for parades
Already much better than the Armata.
Hunger makes people desperate. On February 10th a starving man in his 70s took a stand outside the communist party office in Hyesan, a city in the northern part of North Korea. As party members arrived for work, he called out, “I’ll die of starvation if things continue like this, please give me food.” Other famished people quickly joined him. When security guards tried to dispel the crowd, a skirmish ensued. In a country where causing a disturbance can get you sent to the gulag, or worse, dissent of this kind appears to be vanishingly rare.
Such incidents, reported by Rimjin-gang, a secret group of journalists operating inside North Korea, offer a glimpse of the closed-off state’s growing food crisis. The un reckons that between 2019 and 2021, 42% of North Koreans were malnourished. And as a result of poor weather conditions and a shortage of fertiliser—in part due to the country’s self-imposed three-year quarantine—it had an especially poor harvest last year. Total food production was only 4.5m tonnes, down by 3.8% compared with the year before, according to South Korea’s rural development agency. That is more than 1.2m tonnes less than the un’s World Food Programme estimated in 2019 was needed to feed the country.

fuck I miss emo chicks
>Are ya winning son?
It's a feint
I wonder what the vodka-logged vatnik thought when they saw that embarrassment happen
the vatnik mind cannot be defeated, the main talking point is "everyone would hate on the parade regardless if there were tanks or not"
Russia reportedly has 12,000 tanks, 16,000 armoured vehicles, 1000 fight/fighter-bombers and loads of other miscellaneous vehicles. You're telling me that they couldn't muster 200 of those for the show?
This. Everyone is laughing, but noones asking the real questions.
>What did He mean by this
>Does he look in charge?
>Would current tank be armed during parade?
>What, why, how?
This post tells a lot about the Russian mindset, the fact that they are in this situation at all being the real problem is just ignored, also what the hell to show him, like the leader of the country is either a tantrum throwing child or drunk wife beater that must be appeased somehow.
It occurs to me that, by way of Russian tank naming conventions, this year's military parade was very low-T.
I'd expect nothing more.
closeted gays always scream loudest about gayry
AIDS is still raging in ziggeria btw
Spread to sovok because one of the slavs fucked a moron too
1 out of 150 people in Russia have HIV&AIDs.
Did the parade happen? I've seen no threads about it other than this one. What was it like? Did banana man appear?
Less than half an hour, 51 vehicles total, one tank.
How does that compare to last year?
This parade was a stripped to fuck version of the last one
which is why they planned one tank, and ran one tank. I don't need to insist that they akshually planned to run 3 and had 2 of them break to see how much of a fucking embarrassment this is.
Jannies deleted most of them.
>Did banana man appear?
Supposedly. Either the stress is getting to him or its a body double because the man at the parade barely looked like monke
I don't know how any great military planner in the last 100 years doesn't look at the state of Russia and not go completely mad. This is a level of incompetence that cannot be explained by "MUH FALL OF THE UNION" and goes back generations. Their are entire libraries that need to be essentially classified as fiction about the state of the world. This is what history being made really looks like
New russian tanks are perfectly stealthy you retards.
They're there but you can't see em.
russia parade is in ukraine
already made ukraine lose half its population and some land even converted to russia too
This is fucking sad lmao
Best part about potato man is that he didn't even stay for the breakfast and left immediately after, assumingly because he was ill or just fed up with it.
He had to leave to pick carrots with Seagal
He just didn't want to spend too much time next to 'The target' Putin.
Such a sad, sad display
Why is Putin’s face so bloated?
Age and coke bloat.
So how do Russians avoid the irony of the fact that millions of Ukrainians also died during WW2 to protect the Soviet motherland? Or do they just turn their heads away from the uncomfortable truth?
Like everybody else does in such a situation:
1. They don't care, don't know about it, ignore it or just don't give a fuck.
2. They don't avoid the irony and instead live in a constant state of irony or just cognitive dissonance, something they've had a lot of experience with thanks to communism's dialectical nature.
Don't forget they banned general public from the march too.
Where were the T-14s? They're not in combat so you'd think they could trot out couple, unless they're so hard to keep running they couldn't spare the manpower.
They can barely afford to keep 7 out of 20 working AND the design was outdated by 40 years back when it was designed in 2014
Who knows, maybe they thought showing off the wunderwaffen at home while the boys in the mud are using T62s was in bad taste lol.
They haven't bothered maintaining them since they're busy "modernizing" so now none of them run.
lack of western parts, they probably couldn't keep running on domestically produced parts
Makes me feel like Greece is a tank powerhouse in comparisson
Greece has a shitload of tanks
Greece has well over 1k tanks, most of them are 105mm 1st and 2nd gen though. But even if we only count gen 3+, if I recall correctly, they should have ~350 Leo 2s, so on par with France, Germany and Poland.
I'm confused, are we talking about a Moscow or St Petersburg parade?
>a random farmer in Ukraine is in possession of more tanks than the entire victory parade
PEPSICo probably have more tanks than that parade.
Pepsico could probably fund a better army than Puccia at this point
This is blatant western propaganda, there were 3 battalions of t-14 Armata tanks at the parade, however they had their stealth mode activated, making them invisible to the naked eye.
That's St. Petersburg you goddamn khohol shill chud garden gnome globbohomer swine. This is the REAL parade in Moscow.
DID YOU KNOW PUCCIA HAS T-I-G-R-S?
I almost closed this down due to cringe, holy shit....
I almost thought this was a real vatnik post until I opened the webm. Crazy how easy it is to mimic the cries of your average butthurt third worlder.
It's all trolls imitating trolls imitating trolls at this point.
Why are they carrying USSR flags?
Doesn't it bother them they're bombing out one of the former USSR countries?
that's the point, ukraine is a part of former USSR (Russia), taken over by invaders (le nazis), so this is a defensive war, it all comes together
>former USSR countries
To a Russian this means either "rebellious vassals" or "runaway slaves".
I just saw it for the first time (was working the whole day) and holy shit, it's the "emperor's new clothes" level of cope.
>bros why isnt russian redeploying its whole military to do a parade while it's at war lmao russia must be fucked
You people are just silly.
They had tanks last year.
Yeah, nothing says you're winning said war better than a t-34 and a couple of 4x4's lmao
To be clear there were 131 tanks in the 2022 parade, when Russia was also at war - although it was considered a bad omen even then when the traditional MiG flybys were canceled due to "bad weather"
>his country doesn't have a separate designated parade detachment which doesn't strain the actual combat troops
Russia is over. Death to the Invaders. Death to Putin. Death to Russia. Glory to the warriors! Glory to Ukraine!
Found this in another thread. No fucking way right???
It's from 2018
What point is there to make, I genuinely don't think that anon is being serious.
But yes you're right pro-Ukraine cheerleaders are equally as annoying while being less entertaining than pro-Russian cheerleaders
You don't get it. Its poetic. The t34, the tank that was the workhorse of Russias fight against Nazi Germany. The lone T34 symbolizes the fact that today Russia stands alone in the fight against Nazism. It's actually fucking kino allegory
far out cope
Impressive. Cope, but impressive.
>"Quantity has a quality all its own"
>1 (one) tank in most important parade of the year
>No ERA blocks
So not even a T-34 obr 2023 then?
I DONT KNOW WHY
IT DOESNT EVEN MATTER GOW HARD I TRY
KEEP THAT IN MIND I DESIGNED THIS PARADE
TO REMIND MY SELF HOW I TRIED SO HARD
IN SPITE OF THE WAY YOU WERE MOCKING ME
ACTING LIKE UKRAINE WAS MY PROPERTY
REMEMBERING ALL THE TIMES THE WEST FOUGHT WITH ME
IM SURPRISED IT GOT SO FAR
DIDN'T LOOK OUT BELOW
WATCH PRIGOZHIN GO RIGHT OUT THE WINDOW
TRYIN TO HOLD ON, DIDN'T EVEN KNOW
I WASTED IT ALL JUST TO GET SHOIGU'D
>WHERE ARE TANKS?!
>DIDN'T LOOK OUT BELOW

kek my sides
As a former PrepHole resident I can assure you that if some big attempt changes a board, the board doesn't go back to normal once the event is over
what happened to PrepHole
I would assume Covid
Yeah, I spent a lot of time on PrepHole while writing my thesis, which I was done with right at the start of 2020 shortly before COVID hit. Took a break from it for a year and the board was utterly unrecognizable.
Go to a PrepHole humor thread
and tell me how it's distinguishable from a 4chan thread.
>A flat earther
>On fucking PrepHole
2016 just absolutely ruined and wrecked humanity
At least flat earth (especially ironic flat earth posting) is PrepHole related, but some of the posts are just straight up "I hate this left wing policy" which is neither Science nor Math
>board centered around science and reason
>surprised when it discovers race realism
I do sympathize with a board being destroyed. However it’s a humor thread. And a man of “science” who is honest will acknowledge nigs are subhuman
Christ, but I know that feel every day since about 2017 I have watched PrepHole slowly turn into /v/ for movies. The Jannies won't clean up the Anime and Vidya threads and let Pajeet is run wild shilling stuff Oppenheimer being the most recent and blatant example. We also got the 4chan-reddit bridge with whatever Sam Hyde is doing. What I think might be my breaking point is whatever is going on with 40k. a few months ago we had an announcement that Netflix (I think) was working on something 40k related, just that they were doing something. We didn't know if it was PrepHole, /co/ or /a/ and within minutes of that happening the collective might of /tg/ filled the catalog. After a week it petered out but they created general that lasted about a month where all they did was talk about 40k table top and vidya on PrepHole. I genuinely have no clue how bad it will get when whatever 40k shit is happening gets a trailer or releases.
Feel for you.
There's a reason I left most of my old boards behind and mostly just live in a couple obscure generals at this point, because they tend to be more immune against a sudden influx of newfriends who think they don't have to learn board culture.
At times I still refuse to believe it myself.
I wonder if any of the "old"fags I used to share the board with are even still around
Probably an improvement since PrepHole has the reputation of being a pedo haven and being a /v/ tier to outsiders anyway.
>PrepHole has the reputation of being a pedo haven
This it is full of pedos with fetishes for while female dog bestiality and while child actresses anything with a kid in it and PrepHole shits itself
Well I've been using this board for a decade and whoever it is that fucked off, great. Discord gays or hidden IRC namefags were always fucking cancer.
>/int/ is 4chan for brown people
This. More vatmoron bullshit
It really is that bad
All 4chanmorons will hang
I still pop by /sfg/ semi-frequently, but just seeing the other threads in the catalog gives me aids
Dinosaurs are now political, so every time something dinosaur, paleontology, or taxonomy is posted to PrepHole, you get the same couple schizos who think the global elite are trying to destroy society by making dinosaurs homosexual. (by finding evidence that some of them had feathers, that some of them had lips instead of bare teeth, or arguing that large carnivores didn't spend 100% of their time having battles to the death)
You can't discuss the yearly spinosaurus paper without some guy coming in to remind everyone that every fossil that comes out of China is fake (Mongolia is also China), and that the WEF wants all our movies to not have fuckable dinosaurs anymore.
>Dinosaurs are now political
I remember seeing some thing about how the fact that dinosaurs might not have roared but made weirdo lizard noises instead is some ploy by the left to attack masculinity or whatever, but didn't think that was actually a thing
I don't have a horse in the race, but I personally think that raptors with feathers look kinda cool
I find it funny that they're down to only one T-34 when one of the classic internet "best tank of WWII" arguments for it was ease of maintenance.
No shit they'd look cool. For some reason when idiots hear "feathers" they think of "lame" birds like chickens and songbirds instead "cool" birds like vultures and birds of prey. These guys are basically dinosaurs but scaled down so they can fly. Just give them longer legs and claws instead of wings and you basically have a raptor (which is comically enough another way to say "bird of prey").
>one of the classic internet "best tank of WWII" arguments for it was ease of maintenance.
To be fair that applied 80 years ago, not today, and really most tanks in WW2 were "easy" to maintain and field repair in relation to shit like the Tigers.
The main reason the T34s would be "the best tank of the war" was ease and cost of production and hitting a lot of high marks early on like sloped armor and not using an enemic main gun.
>"best tank of WWII" arguments for it was ease of maintenance.
Which isn't even true
oh yeah man you want to see that in full swing check out the PrepHole threads about Jurassic park its 80% of the people crying that paleontology is not real science and that Dino's don't have feathers because it ruins my cool childhood memories of T-Rex.
pic related gets posted all the time
I would beat the shit out of every redditor who replied to that post while making T-Rex noises
I haven't been on PrepHole in a while I was one of the few guys in the herp threads who kept HOTS. Is PrepHole still catposter and toadline central?
I'd assume even moreso, since it seems toadline is basically a general now.
Big dinosaur has their money in everything
Anon, at that point you're just taking trolling, shitty trolling at that, seriously.
I really really wish he was.
Can confirm for same PrepHole and PrepHole
At this point I am genuinely curious, rapt with fascination, about how, say, Ukraine retaking Crimea will be interpreted as an astonishing Russian victory over there
Still banging on about Bakhmut like it's a load bearing boss in a video game?
At least they didn't forget to put on their VPNs, lol.
Those retarded cum /chug/gers idiots.
>This article is about the American heavy tank. For the Soviet medium tank, see T-34.
>the backstabbing ratmeans only wanted investitures in infrastructure, higher wages and pensions and be a general drain on our resources without contributing anything to our country all along. it's a good thing we figured them out and got rid of that hive of scum and villainry. now mighty puccia will finally rise from her knees!
The really crazy implication is that all those WWII-era artillery and rocket pieces and T-10s and shit *weren't* actually being tapped for parade duty lmao.
>I wonder if any of the "old"fags I used to share the board with are even still around
I am in a few meetup servers with some oldfags and I can say(at least for PrepHole) most have stopped using the board. I also play vidya with a few guys in a /vg/ thread and most of them have stopped using their home boards. Apparently /a/ has done a good job filtering out newfags but I don't use /a/ so I wouldn't know. I did check /int/ which used to be one of my home boards and Spurdo has been replaced by Chudjak.
Ah, that sacred PrepHole tradition
>I also play vidya with a few guys in a /vg/
yeah /vg/ is a great refuge from whatever the hell /v/ has become, at least in the generals I hang out in.
I've also been to /jp/ once to ask a question they might have an answer for and despite having some problems with stuff like Touhou reaching the mainstream they seem to be quite serious about their gatekeeping, which I respect.
I'd consider moving to some alt-chan, but most of them are slow as fuck and I'm not sure if it's worth the time to learn their culture
the fact that /a/ is still unapologetically pro-e-boi probably does wonders for keeping newfags and moralfags away.
>that /a/ is still unapologetically pro-e-boi
>/a/ has done a good job filtering newfags
Frog posting and wojak posting gets you banned plus the average tourist shits themselves over "tranime". Board is still probably in tge worst shape its ever been but it's still better than the rest of the site
/int/ is 4chan for brown people, I would say that 95% of western flags are foreigners, and they just spamm about America and Europe 24/7.
Boy am I glad I only use /int/ to ask questions to natives in /lang/
It didn't have to be like that, /int/ was one of the best boards on the entire internet before Corona, before the 2020 elections, before the war.
The biggest thing I noticed going back to /int/ after not touching it since like 2013 was just how many Pajeets they are.
That isn't an /int/ thing, the entire internet if flooded with them, I fear the day the Great Firewall goes down.
the behavior of Kpop schizos on the Internet has made me realize the Kim dynasty are heroes for keeping an additional 25 million Koreans off the Internet
Kim and Nip fights on /int/ are kino.
Yeah, I've never used it much but the concept of /int/ does sounds pretty comfy on paper
God I hate e-boifags, but I'm happy for them that they managed to carve out their safe space that way
It does until you see that almost all of the janny team has trans flags on Discord.
>God I hate e-boifags
Honestly I would take e-boiposters over Vtubers any day.
Guess I'm lucky I don't come into contact with the latter where I hang out
yeah that's an issue. I don't think I can recall when the last time I saw a [user was banned for this post] was. Those are vital to teach newfags what is and isn't unacceptable behavior
>/int/ is 4chan for brown people
4chan is 4chan for brown people
Pretty much. Between Indians and shills it became unusable
>/int/ is 4chan for brown people
4chan is 4chan for brown people.
/a/ bans frogs and wojaks and has e-boi threads all of which filter newfags
>bans frogs and wojaks
God I wish more boards did this. The quality would improve so much.
The thing is /a/ actually has mods that actually moderate where as other boards have mods that DON'T moderate
>other boards have mods that DON'T moderate
I got a 3 day for racism a couple weeks ago. For saying no one likes morons
>For saying no one likes morons
Its basically untrue because many morons like morons.
Bullshit. See how often they fight and kill each other?
They ban all non anime related images which is how they get away with banning frog and wojak posters.
When was Dolan? About that's how long I've been here.
Dolan showed up in Aug 2010 afaik
Yeah, sounds about right.
>Apparently /a/ has done a good job filtering out newfags
You can't go on /a/ and complain about anime infesting your new home of two weeks after all. The constant e-boi posting also works wonders. And finally most discussion is structured around the constant churn of new seasonal content, which means while the memes might change with time (seems to be one of your core complaints lmao), the core content of the board remains the same, and non-anime reaction images are mandatory, which requires a certain amount of lurking.
/int/ has been one of the worst boards in this site, they're the ones who really brought the newgayry and ESL brown skinned insecurity to everything in this site.
>they're the ones who really brought the newgayry and ESL brown skinned insecurity to everything in this site.
Are you sure that wasn't something else? like 2 really big events on the internet that drove an influx newfags? You know something that over doubled site traffic? maybe a board that everyone complains about 24/7?
Thats the thing, the current state of 4chan also comes from /int/, and thats on top of 4chan already being pretty shitty even before that.
>the current state of 4chan also comes from /int/
The current state of 4chan comes from it being the most trafficked board on the site just like /v/ before that and just like /b/ before that. You can shift blame on /int/ all you want but were not even talking about the same /int/(2010-2013 /int/). Truth is we have seen brown people get access to smart phones just like normalfags did in the late 2000s and early 2010s and thats what is driving the current influx of 3rd worlder posting and ESL gayry, not that /int/ invited the entire 3rd world onto PrepHole. Hell I would wager more of /int/'s posters first board was 4chan than the reverse.
Honestly we need to return the rule that bans posts with bad grammar and spelling, and also ban anybody who replies to them for good measure.
I agree with that, there's a reason when the new wave of shitposting happened 5 years ago people used to complain PrepHole had become a weapons-themed /int/.
Amusingly the Transnistrian Victory Day Parade has always been led by a ceremonial T-34, which is then followed by the bulk of their 15 to 18 functioning T-64s
>we don't NEED a Victory Day parade
Doesn't this give away that they don't have many tanks guarding the Moscow region? Surely they're supposed to have at least a few in the area for defense from surprise attacks or something. If they were there they would've been in that parade.
First Guards Tanks, the unit whose job it should be to guard Moscow got a bloody nose in the Kharkiv counter offensive, so no idea if they held anyone else back.
Also Russia knows NATO won't attack them so it has pulled back a bunch of stuff that should have been defending against NATO
wtf??!?!! This must mean Russia only has one tank left
Speaking of boards being ruined
I really wish we could discuss the actual warfare happening right now without Vatniks posting the same copy paste bullshit in every thread and pro-Ukrainian cheerleaders calling you a Vatnik the second you point out the that Ukrainian army is not flawless
I DON'T KNOW WHY
IT DOESN'T EVEN MATTER HOW HARD YOU DRIVE
KEEP THAT IN MIND I DESIGNED THIS RIDE TO EXPLODE IN DUE TIME
Even the 1941 parade had more tanks and that was quite literally the most precarious situation the USSR was in during the war.
Dude. Victory parade is held in memory of the victory against 3rd Reich in 1945. The fucking state of PrepHole
>Dude. Victory parade is held in memory of the victory against 3rd Reich in 1945. The fucking state of PrepHole
Its bullshit anon, sry.
"After the 1945 parade, Victory Day became obsolete in the Soviet Union, with parades only being held on major jubilee, in part to make favor for the October Revolution Day parade which took place every year in the winter. In the decades that followed, 3 parades were held: in 1965, 1985, and 1990.
Parades were not held between 1991 and 1994, partly because First Deputy Prime Minister Gennady Burbulis thought of it as impractical primarily based on the state of the country at that time, particularly in terms of costs and expenses. The Victory Day Parade of 1995 was held to commemorate the golden jubilee of the Soviet victory in the war."
>Victory parade is held in memory of the victory against 3rd Reich in 1945. The fucking state of PrepHole
Wait until you find out Russia started the war as The 3rd Reichs ally and invaded Poland with it
Funfact: The Nazis had about as much oil reserves as the Soviet Union had given them in the few years prior, when they finally attacked the Soviet Union, without this oil the nazis could not have attacked the Soviet Union like they did.
retard, this was the big soviet parade day
modern r*ssia tries to use ww2 to fake itself a national identity and history hence why their big parade day is today
This. The whole victory parade thing is putinism and bullshit.
completely buck broken.
