Who starts an invasion at 9AM? Posted on May 6, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Is it really that expensive to buy 300-500 paratroopers nods and invade at 2am instead?
Night vision? is that what they call comrade general's new yacht?
Ok I get that but these are supposed to crème de la crème for the vatnik military and 500 nods are like 5 mil at most. Did monkey man not ask to see a mock invasion run before endeavoring in something so dumb? Did he not ask for an invasion plan? This seems like basic things that even a 13 year old armchair general would ask.
We sort of already know.
Orders were given to prep for invasion at higher officer level 1 week before hand. Lower ranks weren't informed until the day before, except for some areas such as some Chechen units. Some units claim to have been told on the day en-route.
The exercises performed in Belarus and Russia before had completed but they weren't really proper invasion preparations, just the usual mass exercise, but then they left the units out in the field waiting to go home without telling them why. Probably partly caused the low fuel supply, damaged tyres etc seen in the first month.
However, we don't know how much prep time the air force had.
Does the 13 year old Armchair General have a Yacht, Y/N?
They're the pasté de la concréte now.
Nah Comrade General's yacht is called National De-Fins. He wouldn't be caught dead on a yacht that didn't have a nautical pun for a name. Shame he fell out that port hole.
This isnt reddit, fuck vatmorons and fuck your retarded posts
it wasn't 9am though, i remember hearing first explosions while it was still really dark and i was about to go to sleep, then i saw the news, called my parents, they were still asleep and didn't believe me of course. so it was more like 6-7am i think.
Vatniks hit the training grounds and a residential building with cruise missiles at 6am waking everyone up (after not killing any defenders), then proceeded to get their helicopters there at 9am for the invasion (while defenders were spread out all over the airport). Helicopters get there and have to fight the defenders for a good 2 hours before transports lands. This has got to be the dumbest plan in history.
I just wonder if we'll ever get a detailed account of just how little everyone in the Russian armed forces knew leading up to the invasion.
Probably not for a long time after the war ends. But when Poo Tin proposed the invasion, Shoigu, Gerasimov, and the rest of Stavka looked at him as though he'd grown two heads. They knew it was a stupid idea, but they thought ok, maybe we can still pull it off - but they didn't, and here we are.
Missiles arrived around 3.30am.
Yes, it's about a hundred fewer Moscow hookers
You can't expect a good Russian general to give that up, can you now
I think it's legitimately possible Russia is so far behind in aerospace that they can't reliably drop paratroopers without visual cues.
I don't think the issue was the VDV needing NVGs as much as it was Russian pilots likely have little to no experience flying with them. Even only one regiment of US Army Aviation (the 160th SOAR) had formal training in night flying into the 1990s.
>start invasion at 9AM
why did they hit the mriya.
why did they hit the mriya.
russians took cover in that hangar and ukrainians shelled it. Didn’t have much of a choice sadly (even if they knew it was there)
500 nods at $2,000 each is $1,000,000. A supply officer can get a nice used starter yacht for a million bucks.
