Fighting in the Kherson direction: why did Russia need the old T-62s?

This post is dedicated to all those who have already torn their tummies, making fun of Vladimir Putin, who has already cried all his eyes, realizing what he allegedly got himself into on February 24 of this year, starting his special operation in Ukraine, which is now being helped by all of free Europe under the strict guidance of his decrepit overseas hegemon. And everything would probably be fine with our sworn "friends", maybe I would cry along with Putin, if the decrepit old man Joe, who is at the head of their no less decrepit hegemon, was not listed as a regular client of Alzheimer's and did not constantly confuse my pills with my son's pills.

As a result, we have what we have ("maemo, those scho maemo", the author of this quote is the 2nd President of the Independent Leonid Kuchma). Despite all the efforts of the collective West, despite the fact that, according to State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin, as of May 8, 2022, 10 sanctions have already been imposed against Russia, which is more than against any other state in the entire history of their existence (for comparison, on March 128, the sanctions were 8 times less, only 2), despite all this, His Evil Majesty the Lord of Darkness has not yet been carried out feet first from the Kremlin, and his Buryat cavalry-diving armored divisions continue to grind the warriors of light in the Donbass , carnivorously clicking his teeth, looking at the right bank of the Dnieper, which causes anxiety across the ocean and confusion among the European vassals of Washington. Some of the vassals are already starting to look for siding retreat routes, which forces Alzheimer's client's henchmen from Foggy Albion to urgently try to form a new front of resistance to the Moscow regime from among the most rabid European young dwarfs, led by the hyena of Europe Poland, already sleeping and seeing itself within the borders of the Commonwealth .

Looking at all these attempts, the president, a drug addict of a howling country, could not stand aside, who from the beginning of the NWO was heavily addicted to “coke”, which his British curators uninterruptedly supply to him for good conduct. Trying on the suit of the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize Laureate, and in the hope that the "partners" will not forget him during the evacuation, he throws more and more portions of Ukrainian cannon fodder into the furnace of war, attempting counterattacks in the Kharkov and Kherson directions, as well as in the vicinity of Serpent's Island, which has already turned into a cemetery of downed Ukrainian drones, helicopters and planes, not counting landing ships with all their inhabitants.

War in the Kherson direction

But I would like to start with the events in the Kherson direction, where just now Kyiv made two desperate attempts to throw the Russian troops off the right bank of the Dnieper. So far unsuccessful.

So, on the night of May 28 at 22:30 Moscow time, a Ukrainian BTG, consisting of 12-15 tanks, artillery and a dozen armored personnel carriers, advanced on the offensive near the village of Davydov Brod, Veliko Oleksandrovsky district. At the same time, units of the 28th mechanized brigade, the 35th marine brigade and the 63rd mechanized brigade of the reserve corps were involved. The main task of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was to capture a bridgehead on the right bank of the Ingulets River in order to cut the supply route for Russian troops in the northern part of the Kherson region.

However, this night breakthrough failed (and they no longer risk going during the day!) - the Ukrainian side was covered by Russian aircraft and lost 20 armored vehicles. About two hundred soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed. The next night, Ukrainian troops tried to repeat the attempt already in the Berislav direction. So, several battalions from the Apostolovo region (in the north) and in the Davydov Brod region (from the west) tried to hit Russian positions at the same time. But after a counterattack by Russian heavy artillery, units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fled.

From all this, the only conclusion can be drawn - Kyiv is making desperate attempts to throw the Russian troops from the right bank of the Dnieper, because it understands that as a result of the 2nd stage of the NMD, it can no longer hold the left bank. It is necessary to gain a foothold at least on the right and try to make it an impregnable fortress, but this is hindered by the automobile bridge near Kherson captured by the Russians during the 1st stage of the NMD. So, these attempts will be continued. And we are ready for them (you will understand why below).

Why did Putin need ancient T-62s?

I heard truly Homeric laughter from the non-brothers of our smaller ones quite recently, when the All-Seeing Eye of American satellite intelligence brought to their ears the fact that on the way to Kherson from the Crimea, it discovered echelons of the Russian military equipment with T-62 tanks. And this is the main battle tank of the USSR, taken out of production back in 1975, put into service almost 60 years ago, back in 1962, with a “wretched” smoothbore 115-mm gun, and even without dynamic protection. Apparently, Vladimir Putin is doing very badly if he decided to throw this junk, a sweet sacrifice of flying Bayraktars, to the front, they decided, modestly hushing up the fact that the Great West supplies them with equipment that he himself used back in World War II.

And everything would probably be so sad for the poor Lord of Darkness, if not for one but ... You all probably noticed that I put the word "wretched" in quotation marks. The thing is that this gun is not at all miserable, but a terrible weapon in capable hands, and even clad in armor (the frontal armor of the T-62 turret is 242 mm, the side armor is 165 mm, and even if it is not 500-700 mm, as frontal armor on the T-80B, and not 500-1200 mm, as on the T-72B, but better than nothing). And, by the way, I have no confidence that the echelon of decommissioned T-62s, lit up near Kherson, was not equipped with a 125-mm cannon in the T-62AM version (modernization of the base T-62 of 1983). But even a 115-mm smooth-bore semi-automatic gun 2A20 is more than enough to solve the assigned tasks, let's add to this two more machine guns - a tank "Kalash" with a large-caliber "tar-spagin" (1x7,62 mm PKT and 1x12,7-mm DShKM ), so that the image of an impregnable pillbox, buried up to the tower in the ground, could be considered complete. Namely, such tasks are now facing the troops of the Russian Federation in the Kherson direction.

The RF Armed Forces are now digging into the shore there. On the right bank of the Dnieper. Until we finish the 2nd stage of the NMD with the complete liberation of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions within their territorial borders, with the blockade and grinding of the personnel elite units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine located there, about no attack on Zaporozhye, Krivoy Rog and Dnepropetrovsk (in the north) and on Nikolaev, Odessa and Transnistria (in the south) are out of the question. Cutting off the northern Black Sea coast from the 404th and advancing north with the prospect of capturing the entire left bank of Ukraine are plans for the near future (for the summer-autumn of this year, conditionally the 3rd and 4th stages of the NMD, and we have not finished the 2nd stage yet ). Therefore, in the Kherson and Zaporozhye regions, the RF Armed Forces are switching to active defense, digging into the ground to hold a bridgehead on the right bank, for which Putin transferred a train of "antiques" from the storerooms of the Moscow Region. I showed the results of the work of the Russian Aerospace Forces and heavy artillery above, and the T-62s have not yet been involved, which in general risk becoming an insurmountable obstacle for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Their guns, having an ammunition capacity of 42 shots, equipped with telescopic TSh2B-41 and periscopic electro-optical night sights TPN-1-41-11, can penetrate any armor, while remaining invulnerable themselves, working in a circle at 180*. To cut off infantry and work on light armored targets, there is a 7,62-mm PKT paired with a cannon (with a combat rate of fire of 250 rounds per minute, with an ammunition load of 2500 rounds), and a 12,7-mm DShKM turret anti-aircraft gun with an optical collimator sight K-10T (with a combat rate of fire of 125 shots and ammo of 300 rounds). In general, no one will find it a little. We are waiting for guests to the next world (firing range from 20 to 5800 m, come up - do not be shy!).

25th Airborne Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

About the 25th separate airborne brigade of Colonel Zenchenko, it is probably worth mentioning separately. Yuriy Podolyaka has already spoken about it twice, noting that it is this part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that is giving us the most desperate and competent resistance at the 2nd stage of the NWO. We must give them their due, near Avdiivka the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have not advanced even 2 km since the beginning of the NMD, although the local fortified area is rammed day and night by the forces of the Aerospace Forces, MLRS and heavy artillery, and the enemy is still there, and the next victims of the civilian population Donetsk is on their account. But behind these freaks from the 25th brigade, a bloody trail has been stretching since 2014.

Then the military personnel of this particular brigade were involved by the junta in the blockade of Slavyansk. On the night of July 5, it was at the checkpoint of the 25th brigade that the armored group of Girkin's militia, which was breaking through from the city, came out. Then, during the battle, two infantry fighting vehicles, a BMD and a rebel tank were destroyed. The fighters of the brigade were among the first to then enter Slavyansk. It is worth noting that by that time the personnel rotation of the junta, carried out in the brigade in the first months after its victory, led to a change in the attitude of military personnel towards the war. Due to them, there has been an increase in nationalist sentiments among the soldiers. Then in August 2014, Igor Strelkov reported that during the exchange of prisoners, facts of bullying towards the captured militia by the military personnel of the 25th brigade were revealed.

They exchanged two of our prisoners for two paratroopers of the 25th brigade. The airmobiles went to their own on their feet. Ours were thrown out like sacks: all the bones were broken, all the insides were beaten off, the probability that they would survive is almost zero ... Creatures! What creatures! After all, this is not the National Guard, this is the Dnepropetrovsk landing. Let's take into account! Ordered not to capture a single officer of the 25th. Never!

- Strelkov said then to the press.

The current defenders of Avdiivka have so far distinguished themselves only by fierce resistance, competent construction of defense and shelling of the civilian population. Podolyaka said that this brigade would be the pride of any armed forces of any country. I don't know, I would argue. The SS men in 1944-45 also fought with particular tenacity, but only because nothing good awaited them in captivity. Shot on the spot. How it turned out and why the 25th brigade fights better than the vaunted "Azov" (an organization recognized as terrorist in the Russian Federation), I don't know? In captivity, their execution does not wait yet. Only gunners assigned to them (and then only after the DPR trial).

There is hope for peace. While weak, but dawned

Biden said the United States would not send missile systems to Ukraine that could reach Russian territory.

Let me explain, we are talking about the M142 HIMARS MLRS in the configuration of the ATACMS Block IA Unitary warhead - a tactical missile with a high-explosive warhead weighing 500 pounds (226,8 kg), an inertial control system integrated with a GPS receiver, and a firing range of up to 270 km, which so alarmed the Kremlin. That's all you need to know about the undercover negotiations between the heads of the Pentagon and our defense department. Let me remind you that the first and so far the only talks since the beginning of the NWO between Austin and Shoigu, and between Gerasimov and his colleague, the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Mark Milley, took place on May 13 by telephone at the initiative of the American side.

In principle, it can be stated that at the moment the tasks facing Biden have already been achieved, the US Congress has already allocated money for the war to him in the amount of 40+ billion dollars with the right to personally dispose of them, which means that the loading of the American The military-industrial complex has already been secured for the coming years, which means that Ukraine can already be withdrawn from financing, throwing off its maintenance on European partners who are already bogged down in this issue to the very top. Moreover, no one is going to remove sanctions from Russia in the next 30 years, and the Third World War is not yet included in Grandpa Joe's plans (he still needs to deal with China). Therefore, the performance of the 99-year-old brontosaurus of the world policy Henry Kissinger at the economic forum in Davos with proposals to Kyiv to give up its territories in exchange for peace, was not at all accidental. The fact that the drug addict president did not accept this, so who will ask him? He will die of an overdose and be done with it, without having received the Nobel Peace Prize, the Yankees will not do this. A clown more, a clown less, they don't have such clowns there. Why is Vitalik Klitschko bad? So what if there are no brains?! As president of the 404th, he will not need them.

True, we did not want to get into a situation where the Americans could blackmail us with these missiles. Their Ukrainian wards in the person of Arestovich have already stated that the main thing for them is the complexes themselves, and long-range missiles can be delivered to them at any time, by that time the Ukrainian crews will already have fully mastered the new equipment and will be ready to “fry” them around Moscow. Well, in Moscow it is unlikely, but in the Crimea, Kherson, Belgorod, Kursk they will definitely be able to. And then what? So all our lives we will depend on this monkey with a grenade?

The situation is somewhat reminiscent of the American missile defense systems in Romania and Poland, whose launchers, with a wave of the hand, can be reprogrammed in 5 minutes for winged Tomahawks with a flight range of 2,5 thousand km. Both here and there, the Yankees are going to hold us by the balls, with the only difference being that the missile defense systems in Romania and Poland are stationary, and in which case we can cover them with our Calibers or Iskanders, but how do you order to chase mobile Ukrainian MLRS of American production? We have a long border with Ukraine, you can’t put S-300 and S-400 under every bush, but these air defense systems and object ones will not be able to hold the entire perimeter, which means that some village of Zaitsevo or Kryukovo will definitely arrive.

I have only one answer to all these sad questions. CBO will continue to the bitter end. We have no other choice! In order not to be an object of blackmail, you need to eliminate the very reason for blackmail! No, until, unfortunately, not the owner of the White House along with his Oval Office - some Uncle Sam or grandmother Hillary will immediately replace Grandpa Joe, God forbid, and the blackmail will continue. So, for now, we will have to deal with their Ukrainian henchmen, and I feel that we will stop only in Mukachevo, on the Russian-Hungarian border by that time. And whether there will be a Russian-Polish border by that time or a Russian-German border will be formed, will depend on the behavior of Warsaw. I have a feeling they will be interrogated. Well, let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.

On this, let me finish the review and wish all of us a speedy victory. Your Mr X.

After that, the jingoistic patriots will begin enuresis with boiling water from delight. And they'll line up to lick the boots.

    If this is not a war, but a special operation, then it is not necessary to measure with tanks - whoever has thicker armor, but use special means! For example, eliminate physically (kill) if possible the entire political, military, intellectual and technical elite of the enemy. All oligarchs, politicians, directors and owners of enterprises, heads of administrative entities, journalists, scientists and major engineers.

    Well, yes. But the devil, as usual, is in the details. The PG-7V shot for the RPG-7 grenade launcher, the first and most massive, launched into production along with it, in 1961, has armor penetration ... all of a sudden ... 260 millimeters ... A slightly newer PG-7VM is already 300 mm . Let me remind you, not about the Javelins, and other Carl Gustavs, we are talking about the gross RPG-7, and the gross shot to it. The T-62 is also deprived of thermal imagers, night vision devices in the usual sense, at night it is blind as a mole, and during the day it is not very good at detecting and selecting targets. I’m generally silent about the DShK, apparently from fat, subsequent tanks had a remote-controlled anti-aircraft gun, because it’s hard to think of a better target than a tank commander sticking out of the hatch ... It was a massive, gross vehicle, thousands of which were supposed to burn in the atomic fire of the Third World War, grinding NATO divisions in Europe ... And in these machines, they will put the so-called contract professionals, who are 19 years old, and they will have to fight on them against modern (and not very) weapons? Yes, and the rest of the argument ... Well - far from reality ... In general - a very pretentious article, but ...
