Where the fuck are they?
Weren't they retired and replace by Tigrs?
Vodniks ARE modified Tigers, which means more expensive than making normal Tigers
I can't believe things from a game released in 2005 are still considered current/new tech today. F-35s, Vodniks, Iglas/stingers
Ka-60 still isn't certified, never mind in production, after 30 years
Destroyed when the MVD cops got turned into paste on the first day of the war.
I think Egypt is the only other country that uses them
putin literally fast moved all his units into kiev and the wheeled units outpaced the tracked ones lmao
The AA wasn't on attack move so they didn't shoot at the Ukrainian aircraft.
>zhukov looking down on this disaster and realizing Putin didn't set the AA to attack move
the OMON team from siberia that wandered into Kiev on night 1, looked at some AFU in confusion because they thought they'd be dealing with post-regime protestors and then got lite up is sitll my favorite incident of the war
Sounds straight out of a John Ringo novel. Reality is nuts.
qrd? sounds too silly to be true, but this whole war has been retarded so far
The initial attack from Belarus includes a lot of police units because they expected to be dealing with protestors after kicking out the government not a determined military defense. This is thread that pieced that info together.
For the hundreth time, they're not police.
the SOBR police were there too
They are, gendarmerie are still police.
No it's not.
>Russia thinks that the Ukrainian state will crumble in short order, so OMON skull crackers are included to suppress the civilian populace in traditional Russian style, one team from bumfuck Siberia is involved in the shitshow
>due to the excessive secrecy and radio silence, nobody really knows the actual plans and it's all just an exercise bro until they're suddenly ordered to cross the border with no further details
>the 40 mile column famously becomes a giant shitshow and the riot cops find themselves clueless, alone and balls deep into hostile territory
>the commander decides to fuck it and just punch it, outrunning the invasion force and somehow completely bypassing the front through sheer dumb luck
>their luck runs out at the suburbs however, they're spotted by Ukrainian regulars and intercepted on a bridge leading to Kyiv proper
>and as it turns out, a SWAT team with AKs and armored trucks doesn't do that well against proper anti-armor assets and they get fucking pasted all over that bridge, only a handful survive to be captured
That wasn't a Vodnik but either Tornado or some other MRAP/Riotcop vehicle.
Another vehicle that has been no show is the BMD based 125mm armed anti tank gun that VDV were supposed to have
That's the one.
According to >wikipedia it has been in service since 2005 but further purchase cancelled in 2010 except later denied by a general and in 2016 stated that production will begin a new in 2018 except it still had not begun by 2022.
Another russian vaporware
Vid of the event?
yeah a lot of people seem to memory hole this one. but there are some interviews with survivors, also there was some pictures of another convoy of their that was destroyed and the trucks were full of police batons and riot shields.
>pictures of another convoy of their that was destroyed and the trucks were full of police batons and riot shields.
I'm still trying to find this exact picture.
Mine was when both sides ran out of ammo so the Ukrainians just started running Russians over so they fled into the woods.
Bullshit story from bullshit artists.
they never entered full scale production, it's basically the SU-47 of MRAPs, don't let ArmA 2 fool you
the su57 is seeing combat.
In a certain channel that the west is trying to bury maybe?
>the one su57 is seeing combat.
Pretty sure those got retired. They were fun in Bad Company 1 and 2
I like how this vehicle looks. I wish I could own one or something similar.
not everything from games is common in real russki military
Ah the VBL
They built a ton of small-scale production vehicles such as Kamaz Vystrel, Taifun, etc in the hope of obtaining military contracts.
I miss when Battlefield was actually good.
extremely based, loses only to 1942
Based, loses only to BC2
Never forget best dlc ever
>zoomers discover that military procurement is painfully slow
Bro the Abrams is from like 1981. Sure its been upgraded but still. Also don't look at aviation then. C-5's that lifted people out of Vietnam are still in service. There are probably a few F-15 airframes that did patrols over Panama, Iraq, Serbia, Afghanistan, and Iraq again.
They were shit and the MoD rejected them. The vehicles built ended up being given to Syria
I don't think I've seen one recently that wasn't rusted
imagine producing garbage so horrible that you can't even bribe Russian MoD to accept 'em
those things must be absolutely terrible
This looks like someone took a look at a modern vehicle and then decided to mimic it using Soviet surplus and scrapmetal.
And of course, there is a buhanka in the back.
>we got himars at home.
I literally just looks like a dumpster with off road tires
Russians really are orcs.
I wish Russia would build more BRDM-2 based vehicles.
Same with the US and the similar Cadillac Gage.
Like the M1117?
The company that makes the Cadillac Gage got bought out decades ago and makes a line of vehicles thats a direct successor.
Why do all Russian armored vehicle designs look like they weren't intended to be used by people? Look at that thing. Look at the doors. Looks unergonomic and retarded as fuck. Like their BTR series
Because they werent made for people
My favorite thing to do with these in Arma II was to take the 7.62 armed version and try to run roadblocks manned by guys with shotguns.
Sold to Uruguay
why do they have augs but then shitty ass ww2 steel helmets? retarded????
AUGs aren't exactly modern anon
Neither are m16s, m4s, g36, l85, so on so on.
There's not much going on down there. Believe it or not places like Paraguay or Uruguay still operate stuff like shermans, stuarts, chaffees and half-tracks.
>why do these guys have rifles from the seventies and free helmets they got from some random country upgrading
Chile uses composite stahlhelm pattern helmets for their reserve units still.
that shit was my favorite ride in battlefield 2
just one AT class and a vodnik rolling around. quickly deploy to take out rushing infantry with the mg, and wreck their shit with the atgms
thoughts on the zil karatel?
it reminds me of the hl2 combine apc
Kek. Someone post the video of the soldier walking through an explosion or the fake robot going on an atv
Having the armour drop down like that seems like a really bad idea if you're attempting to use this in sight of the enemy.
You go from snug steel box too squatting on a kitchen stool in the literal press of a button.
this picture was taken when it was a prototype you can see the final version has a conventional door
thoughts on the zil karatel?
wheeled cuck-shed energy
Did they get inspiration from Batman?
the russians will trade these to the iranians for drones and arma 3 will become real
Rumor has it, the last one was stolen after some guy slapped a bunch of C4 on ot then drove off at maximum speed.
20mm vodnik with thermals was easily one of my favorite vehicles in arma2 oa.
>20mm vodnik with thermals was easily one of my favorite vehicles in arma2 oa.
Bros... we overestimated them...
Why did BF2 shill this for the MEC?
Oh, shit. Is that what the heavy machine gun car was?
I thought it was just a van with a PKM slapped on top of it.
They had alot of Russian kit, AK101, Bizon, Saiga, SVD, btr90, t90...
Thread theme btw
Oh god, based. Is BF2 still active? Anyone know?
Project Reality was still just about going last I checked.
>MEC spec ops have the SA80
EA predicted the future lmao
God I loved BF2's MEC, instead of run of the mill Hajis you got the closest to a "non-aligned" professional military you could get.
The MEC is the only real life user now. Accurate
