The power of the Armed Forces of Ukraine after they were armed by Western countries was revealed


After the start of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, Kyiv began not only to receive military assistance from the countries of the Western world, but also to carry out direct purchases of weapons. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have already received a significant amount of weapons, but they are spent very carefully and do not often flash at the front. It is this feature that suggests that Ukraine is preparing a separate powerful group of troops.


It should be noted that over the past time, Ukrainian functionaries have repeatedly said that they need a maneuverable “fist” of 7-8 brigades, which they could use in one mass in different directions in turn, from Donbass to Transnistria. At the same time, “plugging up holes,” introducing one brigade here and there to reinforce it, was considered pointless.

The mentioned grouping can be conditionally called the "Reserve Front". It seems to us that the main amount of military aid comes to its creation. It remains only to reveal how the grouping will roughly look in a couple of months, taking into account what Ukraine received and promised by the West.

The number of personnel will be at least 20 thousand military personnel. Approximately so much has been or is being trained in the United States and European countries. Delivering cutting blows to a great depth will require the presence of about 300 tanks, i.e. three Ukrainian tank brigades, consolidated into a corps. Poland has already handed over to Ukraine some of the previously announced 464 tanks: 232 T-72M1 units and 232 PT-91 Twardy units, some of which are currently undergoing repairs at the BTRZ in Slovakia. In addition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine received more than 100 American M113 armored personnel carriers from different countries and VAB from France, and the number of such equipment will increase even more.

Particular attention should be paid to the cannon (towed and self-propelled) and rocket artillery of the group being created. The following artillery systems can be presented in 155-mm caliber: American M777 and M109 Paladin, Polish AHS Krab, German PzH 2000 (100 units ordered), Czech vz.77 Dana-M2, Slovak Zuzana 2, French Caesar, Swedish FH77 Archer. Rocket artillery and rocket troops will probably be represented by: American M142 HIMARS (USA transferred 16 units) and M270 MLRS (3 units transferred by Great Britain), German Mars II (3 units transferred to Germany). There, most likely, the remnants of the Hurricanes, Tornadoes and Tochka-U OTRK will be sent. Dismantled and refurbished Soviet high-powered 2S7 Pion 203-mm self-propelled guns may also appear.

The group will have air cover in the form of airplanes and helicopters, as well as its own air defense systems. One of the two NASAMS SAM batteries may well be in service there, the second one will most likely protect Kyiv. The group will be given the German ZSU Gepard, as well as the remnants of the Soviet Strela-10 and Osa air defense systems.

The main task of the above-described "Reserve Front" will be to deliver powerful counterattacks against the RF Armed Forces in order to cause maximum damage and encircle individual BTGs. This will allow Kyiv to start negotiations with Moscow from more advantageous positions. However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine need to have time to carry out their plans before October, after which the thaw will begin due to rains and they will have to wait for the ground to freeze until winter.

    That is, tanks do not fight in rain and slush? And what will the "powerful Ukrainian fist" do in this case - dry puddles with hair dryers?

    The news is frankly bad, and it cannot be otherwise, given the viscous process of the SVO and the available human reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. NATO headquarters are calculating the options for victories for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and of course there will be results. What the RF Ministry of Defense will answer, I don’t know yet, with a limited special military operation., And with the existing data unchanged, everything can happen ..

      in general, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation does not sit idly by and identifies places where personnel and weapons are stored with subsequent destruction. they do it right, it is necessary to inflict such damage that the crests would think about a further war. You don't have to kill your soldiers.

      It is limited and is limited. And Ukraine receives weapons much more than our military knows about it from official channels and reports. The war cannot continue according to the plan of one side.

    And where is the group "outside the powerful Ukrainian reserve front" being prepared, and in what area is it deployed at the moment?

      On the territory of nearby NATO countries. Western and Central Ukraine is not the Kherson steppe.

      Well, for sure, they will not prepare a grouping in one place, for example, at the Yavorovsky training ground. In NATO countries, in Ukraine in different places, without crowding. The time for concentrating troops in one place, suitable for a high-powered missile strike, has passed, including in Russia, including in weapons and ammunition depots.

    As I understand it, meat is being prepared for the defense of western Ukraine. It is there that the most stubborn dill and the vigorous electorate of the current regime. But there are unaccounted for moments in a clearly biased article. Firstly. Everything is tied to the bubble. Even ideological Nazis will not do anything for free. This is what the war in eastern Ukraine showed. If there is nothing to rob and there are no attendants, Western dill desert in an instant. Secondly. Even now, in the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, dill performs a nominal control function. And given the constant squabbles in the leadership of Dill, the leadership will soon become completely foreign. This will lead to even more squabbling for loot and resources. As well as the disintegration of management into separate groups. You don't have to follow the example. Look at Syria. This will become clearly visible after the winter. Thirdly. Who said that the Russian Federation will watch how this grouping is formed? We have already heard hundreds of times from the OP of Dill about the formation of the so-called. groups and attacks on the areas occupied by the Russian Federation, and things are still there. Fourth. In the fall, against the backdrop of the economic problems of Dill, a uniform terror of the population will begin on the ground. How this will affect the attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Russian army is not clear. It is likely that these warriors will be involved in terror. Fifth. The West's stake is clear. In fact, criminals and corrupt creatures are involved in management. But there is a nuance here. As a rule, such animals have their own shirt closer to the body. And accordingly, they are waiting for their atrocities of a warm place somewhere in the West. And with the decrease in butterflies on Dill, we will watch how these spiders will gnaw at each other. And this is a direct path to betrayal. In the West, they understand who works with them. And therefore, they will bet, as they are now, on bloody shows that do not particularly affect the promotion of the CBO.

    here they are interested in where this group is located, I will answer in one word about our "dividends", at the beginning of the special operation they thought they would meet us with flowers, but they ran into minefields that every homeless person in the Belgorod region knew about, this is a plus to the fact that the most important does not have a higher military education and by profession a foreman! So how do we know where this group is!

      In general, operations are planned and directed by the General Staff, and this was the case even under Stalin. And the Minister of Defense is already acting according to the plans of the General Staff.

    it is possible to use a low-power nuclear charge against this group. By the way, the Americans are conducting research and development on low-yield nuclear charges. With the contamination of the area and the destruction of all personnel within a radius of 5 km.

    This will allow Kyiv to start negotiations with Moscow from more advantageous positions.

    Kyiv propaganda constantly talks about some kind of negotiations. Negotiations can only be about the terms of surrender. Favorable positions for Kyiv are not envisaged. Forget the word "Ukraine". And we will rename Kyiv to Putinsk.

    I also think Ukraine is in for chaos. Then the peacekeepers. Then a section.

    There is no "reserve front" ...
    The first half of the T-72 tanks supplied by Poland have been burning in the Donbass for a long time, crabs, Caesars, German self-propelled guns, howitzers 777 and M113 are also located there and suffer losses - since May, Danes and Susans have long been near Kharkov ....
    There are also trained staff...

    Instead of a "reserve front" - feverish patching of holes in connection with the loss of a large number of equipment inherited from the SA by the Armed Forces of Ukraine ...
    At the same time, less came in than dropped out ...

      Dreams ... dreams, where is your sweetness ..... There is no backup, but it's not a fact that there won't be. And how many things were destroyed we do not understand. I think that even the General Staff of the Russian Federation knows this approximately. Some of the same destroyed (damaged) tanks will be repaired. Moreover, in tanks, the resource of the gun barrel, which is usually calculated for about 1000 rounds, may even play an important role. Here also consider. If a tank fires 2 rounds of ammunition per week, then in six months (27 weeks) it will fire about 2,5 rounds. Obviously, the gun needs to be changed as many as 2 times, especially since the tanks are still Soviet, used.

    You can not say or argue, in fact, now the RF Armed Forces are losing the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The RF Armed Forces have been marking time for the fifth month. The offensive is being carried out by the LDNR, which has a shortage of military personnel, a shortage of modern equipment. For 8 years, the LDNR received huge losses. The inaction of the Russian Federation leads to the strengthening of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the fall of the image of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, they show the weakness of the "elite" of the Kremlin. This behavior of the Kremlin will lead to direct military involvement of NATO on the territory of Ukraine. Russia will not be able to fight with NATO, the economy will not pull, it will have to capitulate to NATO. The existence of the state of the Russian Federation is being decided now in the war in Ukraine.

      Well, certainly not losing, although the movement is not very good. But NATO does not stick directly. All the same, the Russian Federation is a nuclear power. I think the leadership of the Russian Federation is smarter and more than us, couch experts, knows what needs to be done.

    and I'm talking about the same thing... Within a short period of time, the Ukrainian Army will recover and will be more successful in fighting against the troops of the Russian Federation. As a result, the loss of some previously conquered / liberated regions of the Russian Federation is possible .. Seeing that the Russian troops are quite blind and deaf, one can only hope for a milder outcome ... How is it with mobilization ??

      There is no mobilization in Russia, in Ukraine - either the fourth, or the fifth wave ....
