Armored cars received from Turkey create an illusion of security for the Armed Forces of Ukraine


Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who met with Vladimir Putin the day before in Sochi and talked about opening a new chapter in relations between Russia and Turkey, continues to sell weapons to Ukraine. So, Ankara handed over 50 Kirpi armored vehicles to Kiev. This, in particular, was reported by military expert Mikhail Khodarenok on his telegram channel.


However, the fighting qualities of the vehicles leave much to be desired, since the level of protection of armored cars is STANAG 3. This means that military vehicles can withstand the impact of fragments of 155-mm high-explosive fragmentation shells at a distance of 60 meters, but not closer.

Given the total advantage of the Russian Armed Forces in artillery, there is nothing for Kirpi armored personnel carriers to do on the front line

- the expert concluded.

Khodarenok noted that for an intense military conflict, armored personnel carriers and MRAPs with a protection class of at least five, including the STANAG classification level, are needed. This illustrates the experience of using such a military equipment, including during a special operation.

The armored cars sent by the Turks are more suitable for police actions and create only the illusion of the security of Ukrainian units. However, Kyiv propagandists continue to praise the virtually useless acquisition.

    As an armored truck, it's quite normal. For war, certainly better than an ordinary car.

      I agree with you, as a truck for the frontline zone, moving along the roads (it has nothing to do at the "crossroads" either) and not driving directly to the front line - it's quite good.
      But note - there are few of them, and they will not build the weather.

      Here, by the way, about our "crossroads" ...

      Literally today, in one of the TG channels I watched a video of how
      the latest American armored vehicles delivered to the junta regime are hopelessly bogged down in our land

      You should not consider the Turks idiots - for this technique, banderlogs, they have already paid off.

      The Americans are another matter - those in their actions proceed from the understanding of how to deplete Russia as much as possible.
      And they don’t feel sorry for any money for this, especially when the printing press is always at hand ..

    It is necessary to move the training ground from Syria to Turkey, to NATO territory. To do this, it is enough to drive the Turks out of Idlib and out of Iraq. Russia should do this, and entrust Iran with expelling the Americans from Syria and Iraq.
    Transfer to the Kurds part of the NATO weapons purchased (captured) in Ukraine. Then Russia will get a mirror image of NATO, it's not us, it's NATO's weapons, and help the Kurds direct missiles at the NATO army.

      Just... And even from Iraq?????

      This should be done by Russia

      Who owes?... and how? And even if so, how many and what kind of used and from scratch shooters can the Turks throw in Kyiv?

      and drive the Americans out of Syria and Iraq instruct Iran.

      Iran already on your errands? This is the same Iran that is the parent of diplomacy???? Is this the same Iran that has been showing the middle finger to the entire "collective West" and neighboring monarchies for four decades now ??? ... They laughed.

      Then, naturally, traditionally already, add another unfriendly one to the list? ... And how long after that will the Bosphorus window remain open for Russia ???
