Users rated the published APU video with many tanks

The Ukrainian portal Defense Express decided to demonstrate the "combat readiness" and "superiority" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) compared with the "totalitarian" and "ostentatious" army of the USSR. For this, the Ukrainian "patriots" even shot a short video, which they pass off as "evidence".

It should be noted that the video shows one of the mechanized brigades of the Armed Forces, which conducted a control practical lesson at one of the training grounds. After which it was concluded that the Armed Forces are ready for hostilities as never before. At the same time, an accent was made to the uninitiated public that the drill was the main element in the Soviet army. So Ukraine with "European dignity" has finally "overcome" this relic of the past.

In turn, Web users have already commented on this video, which clearly demonstrates the "strongest on the continent."

The structure of the mechanized brigade of Ukraine nominally includes (I didn’t find or search for specific numbers, I took it from Wikipedia): 3,3 thousand people, 53 tanks, 100 BMPs, 4 armored personnel carriers, 70 trucks, 59 special cars., 36 sau, 18 RSZO grad, 44 air defense vehicles. Chet did not see so many people and equipment... At the same time (I’m not special) there are signs of different units on the equipment ... in the video 10 + 21 tank, 18 sau, 6 MLRS, air defense are not at all, you can count the number of service vehicles on fingers (all kinds of kungs are like that, for extras) . 53 + 20 BMP. In general, they stand in heaps, and you can immediately find out which heap belongs to which unit and how much is staffed. I think, who wanted, counted and wrote down for a long time

- joked Alex Bourne.

Like in the 95th quarter. Did you buy tanks? I bought it. But they are broken ... Selling. Who do you sell broken tanks to? I will buy...

- recalled user Gesheft.

I greet you ... Mr. Syrsky, I do not argue about your words, but I completely disagree with regard to this particular brigade ... I served there for three years, and I know firsthand how these “Commanders”, as you call them, can manage , or come to the rescue when you need it ... with uv.

- Anton Tupikov drew attention.

Technology all of 80 years unfortunately where are the evacuation vehicles? (on the video I saw already one) Where are the helicopters and support aircraft ... where are the drones for support and artillery control, or we continue to shoot nowhere in the old fashioned way. Turkey even showed that guided artillery shells + illumination of targets by drones give an almost 100% chance of hitting a target. I understand that in comparison with 2013, where they sawed tanks for spare parts, this is already progress, but not so much that it was wow especially on a scale of 6 years. Moreover, the experience of Turkey says that for the effective work of drones, in addition to expensive and efficient cars, you need to have a bunch of (at times a large swarm) of cheap cars that will create a bunch of false targets for the air defense system, so that they can be substituted by air defense and shock drums. After air defense neutralization, work with more expensive ala strike aircraft

- says Ripper.

New standards, old technology ?!


It’s wonderful that fighting efficiency has been restored! But unfortunately 90% of the technology is simply the “USSR”

- Alexander of Macedon expressed his opinion.

Well done, keep up the good work, I hope the team will reach Moscow. How are I going to show you the flashlight the road. Carthage must be destroyed, the evil empire must be destroyed

- summed up Genosse Horst.

Well, and we, in turn, will be looking forward to the next revelations of the “army window dress” of the times of the USSR from our Ukrainian neighbors aspiring to NATO. After all, President Vladimir Zelensky must demonstrate to the “nation” that the doctrine of “army, mov (language), faith” has not gone away with the departure of Petro Poroshenko. Consequently, Kiev is not going to stop the war in the Donbass, because such videos just increase militarism in Ukraine.

    Strange crew. The SA motorized rifle regiment was much more powerful in armament and equipment. BMP-1 and BMP-2 have different ammunition and all have one "Beglyanka" ARV. Funny team. It was probably completed by the graduates of the Lviv Polytechnic Institute.

      Funny team.

      For me, "brigade" is not a military term at all, well, maybe a partisan one. winked

      BMP-1 and BMP-2 have different ammunition ...

      They’ll probably be surprised. lol

      for all one ARRV "Runaway".

      The rest are still involved in the evacuation, as an option. recourse

      completed by graduates of "Lviv Polytechnic".

      The brigade commander is a "foreman", and there are further down the list - the manager, accountant, foremen, foremen, plasterers and "sklyadchik".

    I counted from a "picture" flying back and forth, a drone only 34 tanks - is that really a lot of tanks ??!
    Practically only one tank battalion - and this is just tanks in the punitive brigade ??!
    Although ....., for Bandera amerobandits, remotely, mainly with long-range artillery, killing the civilian population of Donbass and these tanks "zabagato" - probably Bandera plans to use them in the same way as Hitler's European bandits used in the occupied territory of the USSR and Ishilov's amerobandits in the captured Syrian settlements, laying out their tied prisoners in rows on the road and pedantically ironing with tank tracks over the heads of lying defenseless people ??!

    The "head commander" Syrsky, of course, is that still Russian "broad Ukrainian" - his obsequiously diligent "level of" possession of "Derzh.Mova" is only slightly better than that of the well-known "uncontested European integrator" - latent Ukrainianizer "Pan Azarov (be he wrong together with his own, the same kleptoiudomazepin, friend Janek!) ".... so vividly he reminded me of this opportunistic hypocrite who had escaped to Russia now, with his, too-moov-like," bloodsuckers "and" peperedniki "...! negative
    And such Russian "perevertni (werewolves)" - selfish Judeo-Mazepians "without alternative" Russophobic at first dragged us into destructive and enslaving "European integration", Russian "perevertni (werewolves)" rebelled against the unconstitutional Amero-Bandera coup !!!) Russian compatriots in the Donbass!
    No wonder Julius Fucik wrote about people like "Pan Syrsky" -

    Looking at people with a broken conscience is even worse than battered ones!

    In vain we jerk and joke about the armament and combat readiness of the Ukrainian army. Yes, a few years ago it was a bunch of gangs of all kinds of batiks, Kolomoisky and Lyashko, but now they are, although not for the most part, but still trained and trained by foreign instructors, its combat-ready part, for use even in urban areas. They are supplied with old, but still combat-ready equipment of the times of the USSR, as well as imported equipment, which is being written off by NATO countries, but still somewhat suitable for military operations. Ukraine allocates huge sums of money for defense from its budget, and part of it anyway, except for plundering, is set aside, and for a few more years we will reap snot while the Ukrainian army is reborn as the army of Nazi Germany .... We need to start from Donbass, recognize him, declare it as part of the Russian Federation, but only in full Lugansk and Donetsk regions, according to their admin. border, and there will be a fight for these republics, but not a serious one, but during this whole Ukraine will begin to crumble - Galicia will go to Poland, Transcarpathia - Hungary, something Romania. Now Ukraine rests only on the insolence and viciousness towards Russia in Galicia, and this cannot continue further, Galicia is a pro-Polish mentality that has not been broken by the ideology of the USSR, and the rest of Ukraine simply flows with the flow and waits for which coast it will reach, or To the West, or to Russia, and if all this is left to chance, as we are doing now, then in a couple of generations we will be more vicious than Ukraine - we will not find.

    In the Ukrainian Armed Forces they cannot organize and conduct elementary exercises with live firing, which were commonplace in the Soviet Army. For all positions, business trips, job postings, there are firm prices. I did not pay, neither title to you, nor study .....
