What's the tactical advantage of posting shit threads?
Speznaz train shovel melee so probably some dude teaching these new conscripts melee basics and since Ukraine has no victories western propaganda has to run the Drumpft I mean Russia is finished routine again
How's that "almost captured" Bakhmut going?
Nice 2nd strongest military in the world.
How is that "liberating Ukraine by spring" going? It seems that even with the support of the West, Ukraine has not been getting any closer to Crimea in the last 5 months.
Imagine being supplied weapons by the West and still being unable to defeat mobiks riding on old t-62s lmao
>seems like ukraine aren't getting closer to kherson hahaha
>The situation in Severodonetsk is under control, we are making a successful counter-attack hahaha
>Soledar is under control, we're conducting successful counter-offensives hahahaha
>We will defeat Russia by spring hahaha
> The situation in Bucha is under control
> The situation in Kherson is under control
> The situation in Kharkiv is under control, no panic!
> The situation in Izyum, Lyman, Kupyansk, Vuhledar etc is under control
>Lists of places where Ukraine failed to protect their people from the most incompetent army in the world
What you just said is such a stretch, it's barely a visible argument to begin with
>Ukraine hasn't been getting any closer during the season where people have hunkered down and remained static since forever
I am very demoralized
>Deploys well-trained soldiers to defend a meaningless sourrended, deserted town for propaganda reasons instead of conserving reserves to make another counter offensive and liberate the people they have left under occupation for a year
You absolute gay, everyone and their mums here has been saying that Ukraine is waiting for the mud season to end, and THEN you get the offensive, which will contain the actual new shit the west is sending. Stop being a massive disingenuous gay.
>only the ukraine is waiting for mud season to end
Unironically it looks pretty close to falling to me, not that it hasn't long sense done it's job as a defensive line. It'd be nice for Ukraine if it could at least hold into mid to late March so mud season is well underway. Make it that much more of a bitch and a half for Russia to attempt to capitalize on (maybe), finally shutting that damn cat up.
Mud season will be short this year, due to the lack of snowfall. Almost all of the mud comes from melt not rain.
That's fair. Other side of the coin from the unusually mild winter they had. Still even if it's only an extra week or two, it reduces any potential momentum Russia could immediately bring to bear should Bakhmut have to be abandoned within the next month or two. It would also give Ukraine more time to regroup, consolidate around the next defensive line before Russia has a chance to capitalize, and hopefully get the new NATO gibs ready for a counter offensive.
They expect them to use rocket launchers to rocket jump over to the BLU spawn (Bakhmut) so they can get a crit and kill the enemy medic using their melee.
Mobiks have shovels now?!? When did this happen? That's as significant a development as Russians figuring out pallet technology.
We gonna give the Ukrainians samurai swords now?
>this is the level of cope garden gnomes have to come up to raise morale after losing Bakhmut
SIDES = ORBIT
Wow at least they're getting the respect they deserve and a proper burial, while mobiks just rot in fields, eaten by wild life and abandoned while their families get a moldy sack of potatoes. This is not the win you think it is
>this is the level of cope garden gnomes have to come up to raise morale after losing B-ACK!

If you're sending waves of men to die in frontal assaults you don't need to arm them with anything else.
I heard some shit in the news about India and China agreeing to use melee weapons instead of guns in their border dispute and hoped there would be a thread about it because it looked interesting. Instead it's just more gay western funded war crimes. He ran at me 500m away with a shovel and we shot at him with a firing squad from a hundred yards a way.
Give it another six months to a year and maybe there will be another border clash. Until then maybe check the archives if you wanna see the threads that were had about those skirmishes.
I saw some of them they were just pictures of the aftermath and a lot of speculation they were starting to use hand to hand weapons. Was it just a rehash of the old shit, or has this sort of thing gone on more often than we get footage of ukrainians shooting unarmed russians and gay drone bombs? I mean for fuck sake just make a cod black ops radio controlled airplane loaded with explosives to fly into a politicians office if drone footage is suppose to be interesting
It was actually pretty funny watching videos of pajeets and changs lined up like some sloppy medieval line infantry.
Just whacking at each other with sticks and kicking, you know, the way thirdies do.
Realistically I think both side knows am armed conflict will stalemate on both sides, and a protracted border skirmish at those altitudes/temperature sounds absolutely miserable.
There was a pretty significant clash a few years ago that saw a pretty large number of threads. It was pretty much confirmed that both sides were using all sorts of whacky shit. Hell China even supposedly had placed some orders for some sort of unholy tacticool medieval spears or clubs or something of the like. My memory is a bit hazy at this point.
There was also another relatively minor by comparison clash that happened back in December of last year, but I don't really remember much of the details of that one, only that it was something of a surprise since apparently India and China had been trying to smooth things over after that last big clash a few years back.
Okay so the articles of a rehash that they finally figure out how to put a pointy metal heft on a stick. Sort of figures China would want to smooth things over since they have puppets in the globohomo uniparty fucking over the rest of the world, they wouldn't want to risk getting stuck in a land war in Asia. India almost seems like they're fed up with the way their government does things since they're running out of immigration to England in competition with other middle easterners that claim to be more brown or disadvantaged.
Nice. Back to the basics.
The defense ministry said they were only sent in with rifles and shovels
I find it hard to believe they would ever get the chance to use a shovel honestly.
For once the BBC is using a bit of liberty, I'm surprised.
glorious shovel needs no filthy western microchips and can be made from bountiful resources in motherland by strong russian men for.other strong russian men who did i mention are stroooooooong
