Im sure you all recall how our media was all about being "imbedded" with our troops during our adventures in the Sandbox.
Doesnt seem to be a whole of that going in Ukraine, is there?
Kinda surprising since the media SOP is "if it bleeds it leads".

How is Germany’s dependence on Russian hydrocarbons news? Seriously? Most of Europe by the way. This is exactly why administrations energy policy it’s 180° out of phase.

Guess Germany shouldn't have capitulated to the "greens" and shut down their nuclear plants. They brought this on themselves.

I can only hope that what is happening now exposes the fraud of environmentalists and the funding they have been getting from our enemies. Everything they lobby for plays right into Russia and China's hands.

Ukraine flew helicopter(s) across the border into Russia attacked and set an oil and fuel storage facility and set a few tanks on fire in Belgorod.

Looks like two Mi-24 and rockets were within 2000 feet of the depot.


So, that is three strikes into Russia.

The airbase a few weeks ago, the munitions dump several days ago and now the POL farm.

I love the news stories on the sortie- “Russia accuses Ukraine of attacking oil facility”; as if Russia is some kind of blameless victim in all of this. This should put a dent in fuel availability for the hostile invading “victims”.

Damn, it looks like the trailing helicopter that blew up the oil tank almost killed the lead helicopter with the explosion!

Mad These Russians are a bunch of friggen assholes, I hope they get their asses kicked all the way back to Mother Russia by the Ukrainians. Brutality and unlawful warfare seem to be SOP for these pricks:

Twisted Russians wrote 'for our children' on missile used in attack on Ukrainian railway station refugees that killed at least 50 civilians - including five children - who were fleeing Putin's atrocities

Wow. That K98 is killing Russians again. I wonder what the soldat who first carried it would have thought of that?

As for the Maxim, a water-cooled emplaced machine gun can’t be that obsolete if they’re fighting a trench war, can it?

10 million combatants killed by that archaic weaponry over a hunnert years ago.

I would not laugh in the face of such things.

There are multiple pictures on the internutz of those old machine guns still being used. I'm tempted to believe the Mauser was part of a private collection just because I haven't seen many pictures of them. Having said that, non-frontline Donbass (pro-Russian) conscripts seem to be provided with scoped Mosin-Nagants from what must be a plentiful supply.

I think Forgotten Weapons as well as Brandon Hererra have done videos on the WW1 and WW2 weapons still in use by both sides.

Those are the two that come to mind, although I'm sure there are others.
