Why don't the Russians or Ukrainians just use Gauss Warthogs with rocket launcher passengers? The war would end a lot quicker this way.

Why don't the Russians or Ukrainians just use Gauss Warthogs with rocket launcher passengers? The war would end a lot quicker this way.
Why dont the Russians just used WW2 style attacks of massed tanks in bakhmut and then do actual deep battle after the breakthrough? How hard is it to build 10k t-90 ?
Deep battle and even combined arms are obsolete.
>Deep battle and even combined arms are obsolete
It pains me to know that not only are you retards who say this shit numerous, but are also serious.
Teach me more Mr Milley. Combined arms died in Iraq, it was the last war it halfway worked. You cant do combined arms even against terrorists anymore, because they have the tech to throw your battle order into disarray. Combined arms is old and busted.
The new hotness is all aspect NGW.
you are right but for completely the wrong reasons
combined arms is a peer to peer strategy unsuitable for home ground advantage asymmetric warfare
this was realised by anyone with half a brain in fucking 1945 when the chinese defeated the japanese with a mix of asymmetric and organised warfare
then anyone with no brain realised it when the soviets got fucked in afghanistan and the amerilards in vietnam
it's like going "wAOw my chainsaw is bad for mowing lawn so chainsaws are useless"
YOU FUCKING RETARD A CHAINSAW ISN'T MADE FOR MOWING LAWN YOU DUMB FUCKER
>combined arms is a peer to peer strategy unsuitable for home ground advantage asymmetric warfare
That's only because modern hearts and minds COIN is cope and is not how to actually win, but to perpetuate the conflict to make money through the MIC.
you are a fucking retard
you are an absolute fucking unevolved ape
you are so stupid you will never comprehend a fraction of the vastness of your idiocy
>t. Gen. Petraeus
Combined arms works for clear objectives like let's take this city. It doesn't work when the objective is unclear like fight terrorism or instill democracy.
lmao wrong, combined arms is dead for PEER opponents, it kind of works for asymetric. When both sides have BMs and cruise missiles that can strike ships and airfields outside of the range of the latter's ability to respond, you throw combined arms out the window.
Thats exactly what happened in Ukraine, the Ukrainians took out the Russian ships and airfields in range. The Russians took out the Ukrainian ships and airfields in range. Whats left? Army, dug in. Special forces. Emerging technologies. Influence warfare.
how do I give you r*ddit coins?
You can send me dogecoin
I don't think you can draw conclusions from the ukraine war, Russia is just too incompetent, and Ukraine is still trying to rid itself from soviet tactics
Except that asymmetrical war is still fought with combined arms
>with APCs or IMVs
>supported by artillery
>with air support from helos and drones
>able to call in fire missions
have a nice day. I mean it. Take your own life
Manoeuvre warfare out
trench warfare in
Because last time they tried that they had the 40 mile convoy of death turn into the 40 mile traffic jam of death.
Muh logistics. War is expensive. Real life is gay and boring you can't just drive 10k tanks through a line.
They don't have lend lease from the US
Honestly one of the best OP's we've had concerning the war in Ukraine for the past year or so.
too easily btfo by spartan laser, at least scorpions will survive the first hit
Is this better?
they don't have any MLG halo 3 players that can go 30 and 0 in a game of Heavies on Standoff.
better, but the armor slows it down and makes you more prone to boarding.
highly effective, as long as passenger rocketeer doesn't fuck it up
Gauss weaponry is still in experimental stage, physics and current mechanical technology can't allow for a mobility akin to halo, the best you can get is something similar to a jeep with a recoiless rifle, but the benefit in speed can't compensate the lose in terrain mobility as survivability, besides you will have to train operators specifically to maximize the effect, which means you are dragging already stretched personnel from another vital roles.
>current mechanical technology can't allow for a mobility akin to halo, the best you can get is something similar to a jeep
Holy fuck dude look up a polaris razr or can am commander. These things are literally mini warthogs and they have mobility like a fucking tank.
They are in Ukraine
This will be remembered as one of the greatest innovations of this war.
Those UTVs can have up to 200hp engines. They can climb and cover terrain like you woildnt believe, practically physics defying.
nobody wants to be the driver
>with rocket launcher passengers
Great, so if the warthog gets fucked up by a scorpion, not only did you lose one of your strongest vehicles, but a power weapon too?
>Why don't the Russians or Ukrainians just use Gauss Warthogs with rocket launcher passengers? The war would end a lot quicker this way.
What are you a gay because that picture must be you
a gauss hog is only as good as its gunner, neither of them are 1337 enough g4m3r5 to use gauss hogs effectively
Ukraine map hasn't spawned gauss hogs since the second game bro. Maybe on the custom maps, but this is comp.
Gauss spawns haven't been enabled yet (maybe Sweden or Finland can help, USA likes the rocket turret too much), but the passenger launchers strategy is seeing use as simulated. The crews have been training on 'hogs since they were 8 years old after all.
>how do we make our propaganda appeal to kids?
The ghost was literally better than wraiths.
Anon halo came out over 20 years ago.
Reminder that the Sangheili vaporized half of Africa and their reaction to UN outrage was "uhh, you're welcome".
Also Sangheili literally don't have a word that means "homosexual", and they have no concept of it. They think it's some kind of alien mental illness.
Thats because sangheili women are incredibly attractive, even to humans. And theyre very loyal, one willingly stayed with her husband knowing it would mean joint execution. And that was considered normal.
Before Infinite threw out all the previous years of development they were teasing a relationship between a cripplingly autistic Spartan 4 girl and the Red elite player 3 or 4 plays as in halo 3 co-op.
That's because the Sangheili are based
You will never have cute Sangheili tradwife
>the Sangheili vaporized half of Africa and their reaction to UN outrage was "uhh, you're welcome"
is this real
The recent ONI discord leak suggests that the Ukrainians are so desperate right now, that they're willing to even use needlers.
>Why don't the Russians or Ukrainians just use Gauss Warthogs with rocket launcher passengers?
They do have them but they only have the Halo 2 Gauss hog
They tried, but too many of their men are still trying to drive using their keyboard and mouse, so they can't fucking drive without crashing.
Looking at you, Ivan6879
what baffles me is why the ukranians cant sword fly across no mans land
You're absolutely right. We need to send them Polaris MRazrs equipped with remote operated recoilless rifle and/or ATGM, MANPADS, 50 cal, etc.
The military brass is stuck in their ways, they refuse to believe the multi million dollar MBT is obsolete.
Why stop there?
Warthogs are not actually designed to be driven by non-power armored humans. Yes, regular marines CAN drive them, but Warthogs were not really designed for that. Warthogs were designed exclusively for Spartans. That's why they aren't equipped with armored doors and their cabins are fully exposed, its to make it easier for Spartans in heavy armor to climb in and out of. Otherwise they're way too exposed for general troop transport.
Warthogs predate Spartans by centuries, though.
Halos lore prior to the Covenant invasion is kinda retarded. The official reason the Assault Rifle is chambered in 7.62 NATO, a caliber from the 20th century, for example, is because apparently humans acheived world peace and had no need to develop new calibers before aliens showed up.
>no need to fight because you can just go to any of the new planets being discovered
>7.62 is good enough for killing minor rebellions
UNSC wasn't really planning on having to kill 8ft tall aliens. This is like saying the modern military is retarded for still using the same rounds for decades
>Elitaboo zoomer spartans praising the xenos who tried to genocide them
Master Chief didn't fight for this, 343 is gay
Reach happened in 2552, thats way more than just "decades". And even today militaries around the world are always exploring new calibers. like .277 Fury
>Master Chief didn't fight for this, 343 is gay
The Sangheili won the war and left you a single planet reservation as thanks for your "help".

Hingeheads tongue my anus.
How fuckable are the fem split AYY's? Canonically speaking of course.
I would have sex with them, so very.
Sangheili can do whatever they want to you because you suck at war, but they'd leave your asshole alone because unlike degenerate humans they have no concept of Homosexuality.
They literally civil war'd their own galaxy spanning empire because they thought humans were pretty aight.
Just like to rattle the monkey cage every now and then so they don't start with that "we're the giants now" bullshit again.
>they have no concept of Homosexuality.
Keep telling yourself that, splitlip. It won't make those vids of your brothers taking it up the tailpipe from Jamalus on waypoint disappear. Also thanks for sending all those female refugees to Earth, sangussy is something else. Be sure to keep those planets of yours wartorn shitholes so you can keep sending more.
>The side that one the war and owns half the Galaxy sends refugees to the single planet endangered species preserve
Bruh if a Sangheili shows up on Earth as a refugee that's a fucking pirate there to steal your shit, my guy how many of them did you let in ?
Nah the ones that come to Earth are the lower classes I.E. not warriors. All the hingehead warriors are either busy killing each other, killing brutes, bumming with innies, or getting hunted by ONI glowies.
>or getting hunted by ONI glowies.
Lol, Fleetmaster Rtas has a standing order to vaporize any ONI designated ship within weapons range the second it's detected. The best part is the human leadership can't admit that they were trying to spy, so they just have to sit there and pretend they're not mad.
>The side that one the war
>Humans vs covenant for decades
>Entire human interstellar empire crushed back to one planet with a dozen ships
>Covenant still at 99% strength
>Covenant civil war starts
>Sangheili beat the fuck out of the Prophets and the Brutes with one hand tied behind their back inside of four months
Make sure to thank the Demon for being an Honorary Sangheili when you see him, he's the only reason we *allowed* you to keep the half a burning planet you had left.
>*instantly descends into multiple brutal civil wars and uprisings after the fall of the Covenant*
lmao be happy we use the Infinity to scout Forerunner worlds rather than using it to colonize™ "new" worlds.
>lmao be happy we use the Infinity to scout Forerunner worlds rather than using it to colonize™ "new" worlds.
You mean that gorillion dollar waste of money that crashed three (3) times and had to tiptoe around a single fucking assault carrier crewed by actual illiterate farmers?
Lol you know Assault Carriers aren't even our biggest ships right?
New ONI discord leaks just dropped and urm... What the spruce? Things aren't looking good for the Covenant. Hey PrepHole, what's the tactical advantage of being gay?
Goddam that's an old one
I wish we got the Bungie lore where Humans were in fact the Forerunners, New insurrectionist movements would become a problem again, Human - Xeno mercenary bands springing up causing chaos because fuck it why not (would be cool to see a "covie" Human enemy decked out in Elite style armor), and people slowly relearning that the original purpose of the Spartans was to commit efficient genocides in colony worlds who would question why they were paying heavy taxes to a tyrant thousands of lightyears away. We could've even have gotten a continuation series where the mystery of the Flood origins emanating from the Precursors could've been the focal point with Covie cells still existing to combat you along the way. Would've been a hell of a lot better than what we've gotten so far with 343.
Not only has technology matured in this regard by the time of 2552, but even if you were to develop a new round, you're talking about replacing hundreds of millions to even billions of rifles and ammo stockpiles just for a small change. Technology at this point would be more comparable to something like swords in the middle ages; you can have some variation here and there, but there isn't going to be anything game changing for centuries - hence why things like the Warthog have been in service for literally centuries by the time of the Human Covenant war.
This actually bummed me out when playing Infinite. How cool would it have been if a group of ODST's dropped from above with MC thinking that he's getting reinforcements just to realize that they're all decked out in Banished colors and immediately begin firing at John? Goddammit 343 you guys suck.
WTF are you talking about? Troop transport is the primary variant.
>General Motors ISV
tell me this isn't a warthog
>inb4 puma easter egg
>here we see the mother chinook giving birth to a little warthog
>Warthogs are not actually designed to be driven by non-power armored humans.
objectively wrong. the design of the Warthog in universe literally predates the Spartan program by damn near a century.
according to halopedia the gauss cannon fires a 25x130 mm slug at a little less than mach 40. Imagine the stopping power.
Imagine not just using the noob combo to end the war sooner
>literally best combo in the game(s)
Why don't the Russians or Ukrainians just hire the Gray Death Legion? The war would end a lot quicker this way.
Elites or Brutes?
Why doesn't zelensky just ask for a fatboy? Then he doesn't have to beg for more equipment and can just make his own.
Fill up this bad boy with marines armed with snipers and rockets. War will be over before lunch.
Why didn't putin just command the eagles to carry him to the presidential palace in kyiv for a dance-off with zelensky?
Not enough elbow grease and headlight fluid.
remind me again...how long did it take to fall?
I drop like 60 kills with the gauss warthog in big team games and get reported for cheating
