Russian PMC Wagner mercenaries shot down American MQ-9 Reaper In Libya with Pantsir-S1.
Another take of the drone falling.
>>350255>American MQ-9 Reaper
Operated by the US Army? Now what are the burgers/(non-T*rkish) NATO vassals doing mucking around in Libya?
Wouldn't it be possible to realistically recreate modern ukranian territories and contested cities with those satellite images in Wargame to simulate how battles would go?
>>350259>satellite images in Wargame
I'm kind of clueless here, you mean the strategy game?
I have it but i can't say i'm familiar with it, if that's what you're talking about i could look into it.
at the 6 month mark, the Russians close in on Vuhledar, but otherwise both sides make miniscule gains (Russians in northern Kharkiv, eastern Donetsk; Ukrainians in Kherson/Mykolaiv and Pisky is contested)
Yeah 'Wargame' as in Air Land Battle or Red Dragon.
Just wondering, don't have the game myself so dunno how feasible it is.
Apparently there's no map creation tool for the Wargame series...
Based, He didn't make adrenochrome with him.
>It is stated that the joint forces completely drove the Ukrainian Armed Forces out of the village of Kodema and established full control over it. Information confirmation is awaited
No doubt I've missed a ton of reports but here's a snusmap of how the southern Bakhmut front looks based on what i can remember.
The double Zaitseve towns isn't helping clarity in reports, but for now there hasn't been any storming attempts of northern Zaitseve and southern Zaitseve is only partially under control (northern section that is on the western side of the Bakhmutovka river is under UA control).
If Kodema has been captured (i believe it), the Zaitseve north of it is the next primary target in my mind. I think the Zaitseve to the south is unlikely to get fully captured due to the impressive fortifications overlooking the UA controlled part. Contrary to many mappers who think Kurdiumivka is a target, i think the river will be crossed at the northern Zaitseve, closest to the southern outskirt of Bakhmut city.
Wagnerites in Kodema today:https://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1563968669331476483
Since they're not filming themselves at the village center, i assume there's still ukrops positioned in the fortified hill west-northwest of the village.
They'll have to capture that hill before full control of the village can be established.
Houthi military parade in Hudaydah
From ragtag fighters to a proto army. That is a lot of salaries to pay.
The Ukrainian Kherson offensive seems to be having some success and no doubt the two Russian controlled bridges over the Dnieper River being out of service due to UA artillery is undoubtedly a culprit. So far around 5 frontline villages lost (Vysokopillia, with a pre-war pop of 4000 being the largest).
We'll see if the ukrops can keep the pressure up.
Situation in Donetsk is lame, Ru forces not attempting to advance anywhere.
Russian offensive in Northern Donbas (Siversk, Soledar and Bakhmut front) reportedly restarted with Chechens involved.
In Kherson the ukrops didn't gain anything new and reportedly lost one of the villages they recently gained (Kostroma).
The Ukrainians are masters of finding new and innovative ways of disappointing my already low expectations.
>>351268>In Kherson the ukrops didn't gain anything new and reportedly lost one of the villages they recently gained (Kostroma)
what are your sources for that?
Mostly militarymaps.info and observations from my twitter feed.
so in terms of reliability how many % is it sure that the ukrops are breaking their teeth?
Formations are already complaining publicly about being sent into the meat grinder and they've only seized a few villages.
All i can say is that i don't think this grand offensive will reach Kherson city anytime soon.
Shit is going down around Balakliia between Kharkov and Izium, the ukrops made a big breakthrough north of the city.
The russkies really messed up not seeing this coming and understaffing this front but the supply line to Izium is still safe.
Ukrainians launch counteroffensives on two theaters in Kharkiv and Kherson oblasts, and cross the Sieverskiy Donets in Ozerne in northern Donetsk oblast
Ah Doc, posting this under French flag adds some historical giggle to it.
Theres no adrenochrome n hell
Ukrainians continue counteroffensive in Kharkiv, reaching the outskirts of Kupiansk
Issued corrections in north Kherson and Donetsk oblasts
Oof, now this is an offensive.
Russia pulling out of areas that aren't crucial to keeping the Kupiansk-Izium supply line open in a hurry and Ukraine advancing like crazy.
Shows how undermanned the Russians really are, securing Donetsk Oblast is their top priority but shit like this will keep happening as long as they don't mobilize their full army.
Situation is not looking better, reinforcements on the way but damn.
Did Uncle Assad kill the queen?
Looks like everything west of Oskil river is kaput after the ukrops capture the western side of Kupiansk city and the russkies are reportedly evacuating Izium.
They left a toy army to defend this front holy fuck.
>>351681>They left a toy army to defend this front holy fuck.
Pretty much this.
Overconfidence says the ruskies have to pay the toll now.
They also lost Kupiansk and it looks like the Ukrops are advancing into Luhansk province now with Lysychansk being next up on the gainz train, but we'll see tomorrow. I'll be waiting a few hours before mupdating for gains to calm down for the night.
So much for superpower military, they're a paper tiger. If the West was weak due to all the wokeism at the top, how weak do you have to be to lose to them? All that military corruption killed the army especially since military corruption has a way of showing up only when you're at war.
It's also too late for general mobilization, it might've made all the difference in the first month of the war but it's way too late now and they might even face revolts if they do a general mobilization.
And I'm now starting to think even if Europe gets fucked in major ways during the coming winter, it won't matter anyway. So it's either nukes, sign an unfavorable peace to end the war, or fight to the bloody end and lose anyway.
Someone has a bit of a bias...
>>351697>it looks like the Ukrops are advancing into Luhansk province now with Lysychansk being next up on the gainz train
The Russians were trying to advance in Bakhmut/Soledar direction according to the Ukrop MoD 15 hours ago, surely they didn't leave the Siversk front in that short of a time-span?
Eh, I'm pressing (x) on Lysychansk.>If the West was weak due to all the wokeism at the top, how weak do you have to be to lose to them?
Russian "peace-time force" is fighting a mobilized slavic nation souped up on neo-nazism, not the west.>It's also too late for general mobilization, it might've made all the difference in the first month of the war but it's way too late now and they might even face revolts if they do a general mobilization.
It's impossible to predict the domestic outcome of such a general mobilization but you are wrong about it not making a difference. Army command wouldn't be forced to reactionarily juggle around BTGs from front to front, the wagnerites and chechens could actually focus on offensive actions like they're supposed to be doing.>And I'm now starting to think even if Europe gets fucked in major ways during the coming winter
No amount of freezing central Yuro fags will stop the zogbots of Kiev from waging war with Russia. The worst thing that will happen is nuclear reactors being started up quicker in the EU.
Forgot to add " Kosher certified".
Me laughing at myself a bit, this is all great fun. Personally I would have defended the one weak point in the line.
I'm not really sure how to view this in the longer term, this would have been really bad had they not retreated in such a shockingly snappy way. I'd be fascinated to learn how many people the Russians actually lost. I'm sure the Russians will still somehow avoid mobilizing.
>>351739>I'm not really sure how to view this in the longer term
I have a deep suspicion that the Russian brass left the front unguarded on purpose. Not because they are mounting a clever trap, but to prolong the war. Why? To give the west the necessary excuses to finish its economical suicide. ---> Agenda 2030
A windmill built by Don Quixote with express purpose of tilting at it is still a windmill as long as it serves as one.>>351740
I think it's just the expected consequence of brass being retarded as befits the rank and trying again
to have a "little victorious war" to distract people from various internal failures, even though every single previous time such wars just made the situation worse and population harder to control.>>351739
Mobilization will look hilarious, considering they spent massive amounts of propaganda insisting this is a "special operation" specifically
so they don't mobilize.>>351715>nuclear reactors starting faster>as if freezing Yurops isn't the goal rather than an unfortunate consequence
>>351745>as long as it serves as one.
And in this specific example it doesn't and just serves as a way to convince white people that are acceptable of white nationalist symbolism to sacrifice their lives for jews?
Russia retreats from most of Kharkiv Oblast and pulled back to the Oskol river line though it seems the Ukrainians have already breached it in some limited places.
Issued very minor corrections in Donbass.
>>351715>Eh, I'm pressing (x) on Lysychansk.
Looks like you're right to press (X) for the time being.>Russian "peace-time force" is fighting a mobilized slavic nation souped up on neo-nazism, not the west.
Should've prepared for that. They had 8 years
to prepare for this war and they've only managed to capture a relatively small portion of Ukraine. Don't get me wrong, it's still sizeable, but they've already given up like half of what they gained since February. If they were truly the superpower military they hyped themselves up to be or even just competent, everything east of the Dniepr would already be under Russian control by now.>It's impossible to predict the domestic outcome of such a general mobilization but you are wrong about it not making a difference.
True, I should've said that it would've been most effective at the beginning since Ukraine began mobilizing on day one and as a result now they outnumber the Russians on the battlefield. Putin should've mobilized on day one, then he wouldn't be stuck with this quagmire that he's in now that he might end up losing anyway. Much like how Germany should've mobilized in 1941 instead of 1943. Sure they'll get more troops but at this point all it'll do is just draw out this meatgrinder even more.
Plus they've been constantly downplaying this war - "It's just a special military operation, it's not a real war". So far they've been trying everything they could to not
mobilize, it's like mobilization is being treated as a last resort second only to using nukes. Mobilization would be admitting that the "special military operation" has completely failed and that it was a war all this time, and people won't be so confident about being able to actually make a difference. If anything, they'll think they're just getting sent over to die and they'll chimp out.>No amount of freezing central Yuro fags will stop the zogbots of Kiev from waging war with Russia.
They're still dependent on a lot of gibs from Europe. Their industry can't produce their own versions of all those shiny toys, they only know how to produce Soviet shit. And in the worst case scenario from Europe, they'll have the choice of facing uprisings at home or giving into a Russian ultimatum of the complete cessation and blockage of weapons and supplies to Ukraine. At least until the winter passes and the Europeans secure alternate sources of fuel.
>>351759>If they were truly the superpower military they hyped themselves up to be or even just competent, everything east of the Dniepr would already be under Russian control by now.
True, but it is also true that the Russians are only using a fraction of their might and among those doing the fight there are a lot of militias and mercenaries. General mobilization is not contemplated at this time.
>>351766>Russians are only using a fraction of their might and among those doing the fight there are a lot of militias and mercenaries.
this doesn't excuses the loss at the hand of ukies' counter attack
any competent command wouldn't extend over their manpower capacity
the only might of russia has is thanks to its nukes
as someone who put it in a better way:
Modern Russia is deboned USSR
>>351759>If they were truly the superpower military they hyped themselves up to be or even just competent, everything east of the Dniepr would already be under Russian control by now.
Absolutely, but I'd argue the politicians are the bigger stick in the wheel rather than the military.>Sure they'll get more troops but at this point all it'll do is just draw out this meatgrinder even more
I believed and still believe Russia will offer peace once they capture Donetsk Oblast, throwing the towel before pushing the frontline away from Donetsk City is out of the question imo.>Plus they've been constantly downplaying this war - "It's just a special military operation, it's not a real war". So far they've been trying everything they could to not mobilize, it's like mobilization is being treated as a last resort second only to using nukes. Mobilization would be admitting that the "special military operation" has completely failed and that it was a war all this time,
Surely nobody actually believes the Newspeak Kremlin is using to avoid saying the word war? They've just been happy about not getting conscripted.
It's Putin's duty to take the L and just do it at this point. >and people won't be so confident about being able to actually make a difference.
"The evil nazis (bad guys from WW2 in case you missed it btw) of Kiev have mobilized their entire nation therefore we need a little more manpower to guard the flanks while our professionals fight the real battles."
t. Putler>If anything, they'll think they're just getting sent over to die and they'll chimp out.
It would be absolutely logical for the people to protest but we live in a world were sub-Saharan Africa is being fed to reproduce ad infinitum, medical professionals have no qualms with putting chainsaws to children's reproductive organs and we are posting about geopolitics on an imageboard for nazi my little pony fans, it's not too crazy to imagine the people begrudgingly going along with it without staging a coup.>In the worst case scenario from Europe, they'll have the choice of facing uprisings at home or giving into a Russian ultimatum of the complete cessation and blockage of weapons and supplies to Ukraine. At least until the winter passes and the Europeans secure alternate sources of fuel.
I don't think the EU will back down now and hope they won't. Make Europe Cold Again.
>>351810>They've just been happy about not getting conscripted.>Wagner>Chechens>Donbass militias>Lifting the siege of Kiev
Yup, that picked my attention up.
Russians are talking about having bombed the power infrastructure finally, is this the end of cuck warfare?>>351759>At least until the winter passes and the Europeans secure alternate sources of fuel.
What are they even going to do? You can't build a pipeline in that time and even if you could were would it go to? Transportation by ship is never feasible and they aren't exactly going to get out of this by building windmills. Stopping weapons supplies and sanctions would be a humiliating defeat, trying to trick the Russians with it is unlikely, if Russia don't get some reason to believe they wouldn't just immediately go back on it they won't take the deal.>>351810> It's Putin's duty to take the L and just do it at this point.
He should at least get a few hundred thousand, but I still think he will dodge it. The Russians still believe, and I still agree mostly, that the war will be won by grinding down the army and not taking territory. From that perspective they don't need that many more soldiers, if they just had another 5,000 sitting on the one undefended portion of the line the attack would have been another ridiculous failure like Kerson was.
Hell, they could have just used some of that offensive force they were building up to do it.
Armenia and Azerbaijan going off again, could be of any scope this early in, apparently most of it was going into Armenia proper.https://t.me/ARTSAKHPUBLIC/14788
CSTO called up real fast, Russia forced into a hard position.https://t.me/Cultures_of_Resistance/12094
Iran is none too pleased again, personally I'd just give Iran the green light to flatten them, one fewer zionist clown state in the world.
>>351814>is this the end of cuck warfare?
If so, full mobilization will follow and Berlin surely will be the next stop for the Red Army train.
>>351766>the Russians are only using a fraction of their might
So they march thousands of their own troops to their deaths, lose all the gains they made, and abandon hundreds of billions of dollars worth of equipment just because they feel like it? You're implying that they could end this war in a heartbeat, but don't because they'd rather drag this out for 8 months?
Well, the top brass has ordered to leave a token detachment in place to guard the territory, or is incompetence as you said, or treason as it looks.
I think it's mostly just incompetence.
>founder of the once CIA-sponsored Nour al-Din al-Zinki militia, Tawfiq Shahabuddin, is said to have been released by Turkish authorities after a year in prison and it is expected that he will be deported to the occupied north today
I can't stop laughing at this before and after pic.
Ukrainians capture Sviatohirsk and advance towards Lyman
Corrected situation in Kupiansk
Interesting, the RuAF are using Su-34's to drop bombs in Ukraine:https://twitter.com/Taurevanime/status/1570231142019911682
RuAF has by my knowledge only been using Su-25's and helicopters to carry out frontline sorties using rockets until now.
>>352144>RuAF are using Su-34's to drop
That's a very expensive bomb delivery. I guess they are doing it from above 5,000m to avoid manpads.
Check the video in link, they're flying really low.
Big risk, they obviously fear getting spotted by radar systems more than manpads.
Ukrainians cross the Oskil river and seize Kupiansk in full, along with a minor advance on Lyman
I've seen multiple claims and reports of the Russians advancing on the southern Bakhmut axis the last few days.
If everything is to be believed the map should look something like this.
Locations including the winery in the industrial zone of Bakhmut city, the small village of Mayorsk on the N/W outskirts of Horlivka city, the hamlets of Mykolaivka (+Mykolaivka Druha), the Donbasskaya electrical sub-station and finally Zaitseve.
Mykolaivka and Mayorsk are springboards to bypass the fortified cliff (curved blue line) in order to capture Kurdiumivka town - the ukrops has claimed to have fought back a storming attempt of said town, probably coming from Mykolaivka direction.
I was wrong about Kurdiumivka not being a target, it gives an impression of the Russians planning to use the canal that runs from west of Mayorsk to east of Chasiv Yar as a dividing line to take Bakhmut.
If they make a big push to capture Soledar they are probably going to encircle Bakhmut from the north, but for now if they capture Kurdiumivka they will have a strong road to enter Bakhmut from the south with.
Autistic trivia about the canal i mentioned: It's inlets starts in Slavyansk from the Seversky Donets river and ends up in Donetsk city. There are many gaps where it runs through pipes or underground which makes excellent chokepoints.
The ukrops can't destroy these chokepoints like they always do with bridges so it will be interesting to see how hard they will defend it.
>>352344>chokepoints>so it will be interesting to see how hard they will defend it
It sounds like an ideal situation to wait with a couple of Kornet systems.
Add a healthy amount of land mines and yourself have a pretty ideal defensive line.
Russian accounts are starting to talk about a mobilisation, I'm starting to question my assumption they would cuck. Anyone want to take a guess the scale of this assuming it isn't another meme?
300K mobilization, force in Ukraine essentially doubled.
ayoo putin finna boutta push the buttonhttps://www.reuters.com/world/europe/putin-signs-decree-mobilisation-says-west-wants-destroy-russia-2022-09-21/>Putin orders partial Russian mobilisation>"If the territorial integrity of our country is threatened, we will without doubt use all available means to protect Russia and our people - this is not a bluff," Putin said in a televised address to the nation.
so if ukrops get too close to crimea we can expect either a full mobilisation or some limited use of tactical nuclear weapons?
now this is getting spicy
>>352444>so if ukrops get too close to crimea we can expect either a full mobilisation or some limited use of tactical nuclear weapons?
All the territory they've seized in Ukraine will be considered as a part of Russia "after" the referendums, so yes tactical nukes is on the menu if the ukrops' offensives get out of hand and it's a given that they're already mobilizing manpower for the active fronts.
Odessa and Kharkov SOON™
>>352457>will be considered as a part of Russia "after" the referendums
officially yes, but i don't think it will unofficially to trigger Butin's ultimatum
i think the line to not cross will be pre war russian's territory to garner more legitimacy in the eyes of the world in case of escalation
You're probably right, dropping nukes is not good optics.
Besides, the uptick in manpower is what it's all about really.
>>352444>tactical nuclear weapons
Disclaimer: I don't believe that nukes exist. That said and for the sake of the argument, the use of nuclear weapons in Ukraine would be more than retarded as would irradiate and poison the Russian troops and the Russian civilians along the border.
>>352509>I don't believe that nukes exist
peak america moment> would irradiate and poison the Russian troops and the Russian civilians along the border.
nah nuclear weaponry is different to nuclear accidents such as fukushima and chernobyl, they are dropped in air and tend to dissipate in a couple of days. their power comes from the energy blast in itself, not the spreading of (long lasting) isotopes (like when nuclear reactors leak)
hence why hiroshima and nagasaki are liveable as of today but not fukushima
>>352509>I don't believe that nukes exist.
What is so hard to believe about nuclear weapons existing? Nuclear fission releases a fuckton of energy at once, and that energy is substantial to create a large explosion. Once you have the nuclear energy components the bomb itself is not a difficult concept.
I would say that detonating nuclear weapons so close to your own border is still irresponsible, but considering we're dealing with Slavs I think they'll just do it anyway.
>>352563>so close to your own borde
who said anything about detonating them in contested territory?
you could always toss em at odessa or kiev
The nukes most likely to be dropped if it gets to that (doubt it) aren't the massive city annihilating ones.
The warheads on the Iskander-M and Kalibr missiles are roughly 1/10 the weight and generate far less radiation than the ones dropped on Japan.
There's even 100kg artillery shells that's 1/4 the payload of the missiles i mentioned.
Drop one of those badboys in whatever forest you think the enemy is gathering forces in and offensive is over.
The ukrops blew up a road bridge in Bakhmut.
There's still the road on the dam to the south, one hell of a bottleneck.
So apparently the STC took a huge swath of Yemen during an offensive against Hadi forces and then later AQAP starting in late August and throughout this month.
STC takes control of most of Shabhwa province, take full control of Abyan province, kick Hadi out of Dhale province altogether, and secure the entire coastline in Hadhramaut province.
edit: not full control of Abyan province but close to it
