The scrutiny should be that it took a "superpower" 5-6 months to move almost 20kms to take a village/small town just over their border.
Hmmmmm, I wonder

Don't know why this is an on-going discussion. Even if the Abrams is poorly suited for Ukraine.

Bad Tank > No Tank.

Not always the case, not specific to tanks I mean. If a system takes up more resources to operate than its impact on the battlefield, it is bad

For what it's worth, a mean of 150 sorties per day (presumably a flight day or a 24h cycle) is extremely anemic.
you count effectiveness of sorties not the numbers. otherwise all those recent Mideast wars would have been settled decisively and faster.
atgms/rockets/machine guns can take much more individual targets per sortie. every thing is in eye sight for faster battlefield assessment of dealing with manpower numbers.
integrating drones with high precision weopons mean less need for medium altitude sorties. They are increasing range of Oniks to 1000km.

"Orlan-30" is designed for aerial reconnaissance, search, detection and recognition of objects in the visible or infrared range. In addition, with the help of the installed target equipment, it provides target designation to high-precision weapons for the destruction of stationary and moving objects both during the day and at night.

Looks like in Ulgedar the Russian Army is on the offensive.

Previously only the Wagner and the Doneck/Luhansk units was on offensive.


I think it is the start of the offensive.

Most likelly the tank talk is due to this.

And if they need more mobilisation in Russia then it is a proper invasion.

Every new western equipment that the Ukrainians get people must find flaw in it somehow. Even t-55s would do the Ukranians good right now considering the disparity in reasources between the two nations.

But then again, what else is there to talk about? The front haven't really moved all that much since Kherson, weather is terrible for offensives and the thread is just pages of conscription video, NATO bashing and the occasional artillery/drone video, at least the tank discussion is technical.

How many available (freed up) troops does Russia have for the much rumoured big offensive, 50K? 100k?

I don’t think we should expect any major offensives until after the last group of mobilized troops are finished training. It was slated for completion some time in early-mid March I think. The Ukrainians and Americans say they think it’s probably going to be some time in Spring or Summer.

They will need to hold that front and cleaning after advancing, clearly not sure of the numbers on the ground anyway. I would say not enough if they are not able to cut some lenght on that front line.
