        He just had his eardrums exploded, so he probably feels like someone shoved a sledgehammer into his sinus cavity. That sort of open mouthed fish gasp is a fairly automatic response to try to relieve what feels like an insane amount of pressure in your skull.

    it proves the worth of having as much of your army amphibious as possible. I'm surprised by how non-amphibious the Russians are, huge weakness

      They're not capable of complex air operations with the air force, which is an even more basic pre-requesite than amphibious ops. Russia "should" have had air superiority in the first week given the size of their air force. If they could SEAD then these bridges wouldn't be an issue

      You can make a breaktrough force amphibious, but supply trucks won't work like that.
      Plus you could traverse smaller rivers, but there's no fucking way you'll be swiming something like Dnipro on a fucking APC, especially if it is contested.

    You typically would an Air Assualt, Airborne drop, or Air Superiority to neutralize the artillery then cross the bridge, but I'm guessing your friend doesn't have any of that?

    Use Airborne ISR, Counter Battery Radar, Recon units with amphibious vehicles to locate the enemy artillery, then use your own artillery and air assets to suppress enemy fire on the crossing, then cross in force and secure a large enough perimeter around the bridgehead that the enemy can no longer put accurate fire on it.

    Bomb the enemy artillery with his modern attack aircraft and drones. He does have air superiority, doesn’t he? It be pretty stupid for your friend to get into a situation where he doesn’t have air superiority.

    You need to make some strong accelerant fuel, it's the only way to actually get across fast enough.
    Keep in mind, this is a well guarded NATO secret, it's how they got their jets to go fast enough to overwhelm the Iraqi forces in the onset of Desert Storm.
    What you need to do is mix it 50-50 with whatever fuel source you intend to use it on, any will do.
    To make it, you'll first need 1 part ammonia and one part bleach, then, in an airtight room, mix the two.
    You cannot use any protective gear though, to tell if the solution is properly mixed you'll need to be able to smell it.
    Then once the room starts to smell like alcohol, pour it into the fuel you wish to use it on, then use said fuel.
    I wont be able to respond to any further questions, I need to reposition, the CIA has no doubt already deployed killsquads to get rid of me as I type this.

      It takes time to prep them for amphibious crossings, and I remember hearing that a lot of the Russian BMP's and shit have too many after-market modifications to still retain their amphibious capabilities. By this point, even if they tried to cross the river amphibiously, all it takes is to wait until a certain amount get on the opposite side and barrage the shit out of those guys & the ones crossing.

      Seriously, artillery is just that strong. It always has been. The only counter to artillery up to the past 100 years was other artillery, and now aircraft. But since Russia failed to neutralize the Ukrainian air defense, let alone the air force AND the Ukrainian artillery outranges the Russian ones, they have no way to target them.

    You make fake poontooning in one spot to attract enemy fire, and in another couple of locations you set up a poontoon, at night, that is about 30cm below water level.
