In Britain, they calculated how long the country can hold out in the war with Russia


The armed forces of Great Britain are not able to offer any long resistance to Russian troops in the event of a military conflict between London and Moscow. About the shortage in the British army of weapons necessary for a full-scale war with Russia, writes The Times.


Last week at the RUSI Land Warfare 2022 conference, it was said that at the Russian rate of fire, we will run out of artillery shells in just two days

says the newspaper.

At the same time, according to The Times, in the event of war, the UK will only have to rely on the United States, which can send troops to help its ally or launch a nuclear strike.

The British side is confident that the Kremlin is aware of the lack of weapons and can use it. The poor equipment of the army and lack of experience is also confirmed by the fact that the United Kingdom carried out major maneuvers involving tanks and other armored equipment last time in Oman in 2001. The problem is aggravated also by shortage of spare parts, fuel and other necessary materials.

The deplorable state of affairs in the British army is also confirmed in Washington. So, the former commander of the US ground forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, recalled the Warfighter 2021 headquarters exercises, according to which the UK’s weapons ended eight days after the start of a hypothetical war.

    The situation with Ukraine has shown that even with minimal resources, with proper management and motivation, it is possible to impose a struggle that (I remind you) has been going on for the fifth month. Britain has advanced air defense and missile defense systems, and one of the best navies. Well, do not forget that there will be no 1v1 war, all members of the alliance will immediately enter the war for Britain, and Russia will most likely be enough for eight days.

      They will not stand up, even the USA will put a bolt. What this conflict showed was that everyone should put the device on top of each other. And Britain is easier to burn with nuclear charges. By the end of the year, S-500s will be mass-produced, which are even better suited for intercepting nuclear warheads. Perhaps, at some point, it will be possible to burn Britain and France without the threat of retaliation.

      The situation with Ukraine has shown that the vaunted NATO weapons, collected from all over the world, can do nothing against the RF Armed Forces. It is only successfully disposed of, enabling the US military-industrial complex to renew warehouses.

      No one will lisp with shaved ones, as with crests. They will be methodically leveled to the ground, regardless of the "collateral losses" among their civilians.

    The war showed that no prodigy helps. Facilitates the conduct of hostilities but cannot win the war. The war, as before, is won by the infantry. With the support of aviation, artillery and missiles.

    And war with Britain means nuclear war. And there already the number of shells means little.

          What answer?
          Russia is going to attack the UK? Moved tanks to the English Channel? Everything is exactly the opposite. This UK is going to attack Russia. These are English tanks near the borders of Russia. So Borya Johnson will personally catch the "response". Maybe with hands.
          I have long noticed that some people on this site have broken causal relationships. It is unlikely to be treated. Psychiatry is a delicate thing.

    So an island nation. The stump is clear that if the RF Armed Forces teleport to the island, then the kirdyk will come quickly.

    But it's creepy here:

    at the Russian rate of fire - artillery shells - in two days

    2021 Warfighter Headquarters exercise, according to which the UK ran out of weapons in eight days

    That is, between the lines it is possible to interpret in different ways. Mainly about the efficiency of firing and the role of the fleet in the Anglo Armed Forces
