Russia And Ukraine's "War Of Attrition" Has Begun


"The "war of attrition" has begun in Ukraine, as Russian forces make a grinding push using heavy artillery shelling in the south and east of the country alongside deep strikes further west into Ukraine in an attempt to disrupt logistical supply lines used by the West. Predicting when the Russian offensive will end is very complicated, a European official in Washington told reporters Thursday…"

They can't fight a combined arms mobile war of maneuver … so attrition is all they have left. Using their numbers … And both sides will take heavy losses. However, IMO again the Russians will be out soldiered again and take very heavy losses.

Yes, they are such a large nation with a large population, even after the fall of the USSR. But you'd think they may have learned from their history. But based how they are operating seems their leaders are not good students of history or modern warfare. And Putin he just does not care …

Well I and many would disagree. But it fits the GEN's, narrative about the USMC getting rid of their 200 or so M1s.

But again, the bottom line, IMO, the Russians don't fight combine arms mobile modern maneuver warfare, very "well". Their troops/crews are not well trained, motivated, supported, supplied and the big take away is they are poorly lead.

Yes all possible but very unlikely, IMO. Now CIA … that may be another story.

As a sidebar the US is planning to send the standard(?) USMC Sec Det to our now open Embassy. I'd think they have gone in with the lead Embassy staff ? Hmmmm ? Shades of A'stan ? I.e. Troops in first or last out, when it comes to civilians. Not the other way around.

Plus the US may send SF troops with those staff & Marines. I'm sure they'll be very useful. They are SF after all. But I hope this is not "the nose of the camel coming in the tent" … 🎪🐪🐫

Ukraine: Mounting cage armor on top of tank turrets proves useless

It depends what the MoD intended the cage armour to do, which they may not have told the tank commander. It could help defend against an RPG fired from above (in urban warfare) as cage armour is only effective against RPGs. See Primer: Statistical Armour by Jon Hawkes

Yes, it seems they will do anything to try to limit their continuing high losses. Which only makes sense if they want to be successful in this conflict. Even if it is only effective vs RPGs.

It is telling they are pulling T-62s out of storage. They need all the weapons they can get.
