"Cars do not drive, drones fall": in Ukraine they talked about the weapons supplied by the USA


After the inauguration of the new US President Joe Biden in Washington, Ukrainian grant-eaters Taras Chmut and Oleksandr Argat decided to find out “how the allies helped Ukraine to fight” and how the Ukrainian military feel about the weapons supplied by the Americans.


During the transfer, it turned out that 50% of the highly mobile multipurpose American army off-road vehicles HMMWV (Humvee "Humvee", the factory and export verbal name of the machine - HUMMER "Hummer") are currently inoperative.

The Hummer is a great car. The 36th Marine Brigade in the summer of 2015 received several dozen vehicles, about 30 or 40. They were operated in the air assault battalion. The car proved to be super positive. But the question immediately arose with repair, spare parts, tools, rubber and personnel training

- said 29-year-old military expert Chmut.

He explained that the Americans have a transmission equipment always accompanied by a package of services. For example, handing over used Hummers free of charge, as part of the assistance package to Kiev, they offered their service, repair, technical support and personnel training. And American services are notoriously expensive.

For some reason, we, unfortunately, always try to follow the cheapest and simplest path. We ourselves will figure it out, we ourselves will somehow repair and do it. This led to the fact that in the 36th brigade, more than half of the Hummers were laid up. With the help of volunteers and drivers, they somehow assemble one from two or three that works. They brought spare parts from the USA and did something by the "scientific poke" method

- Chmut specified.

He added that things are no better with American Raven drones. These drones fall directly on the "occupied" territory of Donbass.

Raven are good drones for their niche and missions. They are new, they were produced specifically for Ukraine in the 2003-2005 version. The Americans gave them so that we could master and further build up this story.

- Chmut explained.

The expert explained that some of the Ukrainian military who went to study in the United States later quit. Some of those who studied did not receive drones, but received those who did not study in the United States.

It's just that Viktor Muzhenko, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, painted it that way. As a result, those who have the certificates did not receive the UAV. And those who studied in Ukraine in Zhitomir received it. I remember there were guys from some brigades who did not receive training, but received

He remarked.

Cars don't drive, drones fall

- summed up Chmut, who is sure that the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is to blame for everything.

    Finally, the exact coordinates of a certain island were determined:

      So the article describes that those who did not study on it began to master the technique, that there are problems with spare parts. In Russia, for example, overhaul repairs last more than a dozen years, missiles are designed for 10-30 years and, as a result, cannot take off, and if they take off, then it takes a long time to find, the newest and "unparalleled" aircraft and tanks cannot fly and And pay attention - NOBODY STARS about this!

        That which fell into the troops normally travels and flies.
        The missiles, which have been designed for 10-30 years, are figures taking into account the timelessness of the 90s and the failure of the lost generations of specialists. The situation is noticeably improving, in contrast to the / on.

              What I have just said applies equally to any country. As soon as the leadership stops chatting, everything is getting better quietly, even in the military industry, even in civilian life. It's time to stop looking for the guilty and start working, everything will be fine in Ukraine, Crimea, Donbas, all conversations will subside on their own. So far there is no such thing either in Ukraine or in Russia

                I, unlike you, see a noticeable difference in what is happening in Russia and in Ukraine.

                  You are a wise man, I see that in the Russian Federation, in Ukraine, what is happening in Belarus ... people sit and look at their interests. In my opinion, there is enough money for everyone, you don't just need to wrap yourself in a blanket in 10 turns, so you can not only warm up, but rather sweat and catch a cold when you want to go to the toilet!

    Square, you got what you wanted to get.
    My Ukrainians-techies from the Soviet Rembat in the 88th year of the last century would first have expressed everything they think about any trash.
    But in a week the cars would be running. soldier
