>bartering captured Russian equipment with other units for supplies
>80% of 93rd's equipment is captured Russian shit now
>trading unwanted Russian vehicle bits for ones you need for repairing your own vehicles
>units that receive western equipment either hold onto them dearly or ask for equivalent stuff in return (ex: Krab for Caesar)

    Seems like the "Ukraine has more Russian equipment than Russia" meme ain't so far from the truth

    A currency is anything which has a understood fix value and can be readily accessed in enough quanties to facilitate trade. In this case captured Russian equipment.

    Have you ever tried ordering parts in the US military? It's a major bitch. Sometimes you just have to ask sister units for the part you need in exchange for a part they need.

    Based ukro officials.
    steal all the western weapons, steal all the supplies, steal all the food.
    then personally profit more by selling the stuff you stole to frontline soldiers who're desperately willing to trade it for any price you ask.
    I respect ukros. you'd be completely retarded if you acted in any other way. altruism is for the dumbasses.

    How could you even transfer western equipment if your men don’t know how to operate it, or do the trained operators get transferred to the new unit?

        The Canadian and French ones were the best but I liked the US ones having hot sauce and so on. Dutch was meh.

            They don't. Haven't for ages, prior to full ban they had vinogel which was a paste to dilute in water (cold war era, they stoped issued it long time before desert storm).
            Italians ones still cames with liquor recently AFAIK (early afghanistan).

              I can only assume the Italian ones still come with an alcohol ration simply because I cannot imagine an Italian actually eating his dinner without an accompanying glass of wine, field conditions be damned

            Any MRE will make you have the worst shits if you eat them for more than 5 days in a row.

      More or less, though your generals wouldn't really care what you ate so long as you were being fed but having an inaccurate idea of what equipment a particular unit has could potentially cause logisitical issues. Still, get why they do it, hell of a lot quicker to trade shit you dont need for shit you do without filling in a load of paperwork and waiting for Kiev to sort it out.

    It makes sense. Ukraine is operating such a mishmash of equipment it's probably far more efficient to simply crowdsource replacement parts rather than always go through the proper channels and be left in the lurch.

    This is probably the best possible system in their situation. Way better than some rear echelon penciled pusher dictating anything to them.
