Kedmi pointed to the great advantage of the Russian army, which it does not use


In the course of the ongoing Russian military defense on Ukrainian territory since February 24, the RF Armed Forces are using tanks incorrectly. Modern warfare must be maneuverable, and the Russian army has everything necessary for this, but it does not act like that. This was announced by the former head of the Israeli intelligence service Nativ, military expert Yakov Kedmi, the portal writes. "Warfare".


Kedmi stressed that tanks are needed to punch holes in the enemy's defenses and reach his deep rear to cut off supply lines.

So the tactics was chosen that the war (NVO in Ukraine - ed.) is not maneuverable. Why they decided this way, I don’t know, but in a maneuver war, Russia has a huge advantage - a large number of armored troops. It is always better to attack fortifications from the rear. To do this, you need to go to the rear, for this you need to bypass them and break through where it is convenient

- explained Kedmi.

At the same time, he is not sure that the tactics chosen by the Russian command, in the form of relying on artillery, will reduce losses in personnel. According to him, even a huge fire advantage does not guarantee this, because the special operation is stretched over time, and this is of great importance.

He pointed out that there is always a limited amount of ammunition on the front lines and they must be constantly brought up. Breaking through the defenses in some areas with the introduction of large tank formations will make it possible to deprive the enemy of ammunition, since they will simply run out due to lack of logistics and he will have to retreat. Such a tactic, as he sees it, is much more effective than the existing one.

From the point of view of the Russian army, there was no problem to go to the Dnieper from Chernigov and almost to Dnepropetrovsk and destroy all the bridges, except for those near which there are serious groupings of troops. And that's it. And there is no supply. They don't have weapons. All fortifications can be taken with bare hands

Kedmi says.

In his opinion, then the NWO would have been completely different, with a completely different number of troops that would have to be brought into the territory of Ukraine. At the same time, he did not rule out that the implementation of this would have led to heavy losses at the initial stage, but its successful implementation would have saved many more lives in the end, since it would not have been necessary to storm the fortified areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass in the forehead. The expert called the current situation - "static war", similar to the return to the First World War, when they talked about the "trench war".

But then there were no tanks, and when they were, they were used. And here the tanks are not used for their intended purpose, but as infantry support. Infantry accompanies and supports tanks, and not vice versa

- pointed out Kedmi.

He also drew attention to the fact that the RF Armed Forces have a huge number of "self-propelled guns" (ACS), which, together with tanks, can provide troops with much higher maneuverability. He summed up that the lack of maneuverability now prevents the Armed Forces of Ukraine from developing counteroffensives, and Russia, which has everything for a maneuverable war, does not use its advantage.

It should be noted that according to The Military Balance, by the beginning of 2022, the RF Armed Forces had 13 tanks of various models. At the same time, 617 were in reserve (at storage bases), 10 were in service with the Ground Forces, another 200 were with the Coastal Forces of the Navy and 2 were in the Airborne Forces. But it takes a lot of time and effort to put more than 927 tanks into service. In addition, to support the advancing “armored armadas”, to cover the flanks and rear, several times more infantry is needed than the limited contingent of the Russian army currently has in the NVO. It is the presence of a significant number of infantry that makes it possible to control territories and realize all the advantages in technology and firepower.

    They say I sabotaged the CBO as best I could, give me back my money. Maybe they were even promised this, so they sabotage.

    Kedmi probably does not know that all Russian generals walk around with their hands tied and gagged. Joke.
    It is impossible to imagine that smart generals have run out in Russia.
    Most likely there is an order to do nothing, not to fight and create the appearance of hostilities.
    Otherwise, they would have been in Odessa and Nikolaev and Kharkov and anywhere else for a long time.
    Yes, in Izyum, Zelensky would have been arrested along with his entire team, if there had been an order.
    But someone needs all this mouse fuss and impotence.
    The military is not given carte blanche.
    All this will end badly.
    And first of all, for those who believed that Russia came to stand up for the Russians.

      There are darkness of tanks and self-propelled guns, for example, look at least a couple of Bhrvt (reserve military equipment storage base) Google maps open and write: Omsk, st. Chelyuskintsev 89 (this base is behind the house where my grandmother lives).

    Modern is when? 50 or even 80 years ago?
    Yakov Iosifovich Kazakov (Kedmi) operates with the concepts of the time when he himself took part in the hostilities.
    First, a lot of time has passed since then.
    Secondly, according to the military science of those times, the losses of the advancing troops were 3 times higher than the losses of the defenders. Do we need it?
    Thirdly, the rapid end of the CBO at the cost of high losses does not seem to be useful. Here some political and "conceptual" restrictions are imposed, arising from the difference between NWO and war.
    Fourthly, with regard to ACS. A number of T62 tanks were sent to the NMD zone. How much - no one knows. The use of the T62 suggests that the Defense Ministry and Putin take good care of the available military equipment. In terms of strike capabilities, they are an adequate replacement for the D30, but are much more mobile and provide better protection for personnel. They are also more mobile than self-propelled guns and are better protected. Tanks are quite old, so it is better to use them now, while they are (in this situation) quite effective. Their 115 mm rounds are not common and in demand now, so it is better to use them now than to spend money on disposal later.
    And there are a lot of T62 tanks (about 2000) and shells for them prepared for the world war. Get it and use it for free. Glory to the USSR!

      So this is if you fight, as you put it "in the old way."
      If you fight according to your mind, relying on modern means of reconnaissance / additional reconnaissance and defeat, then the losses will be many times and times less than what you declared.

      Not without losses, unfortunately, because there is no war without losses. But still...

        With wide coverage of the territory, we leave in our rear a mass of incomprehensibly what kind of population, not controlled by the Russian-controlled administration. In general, it is not clear what kind of population. There, most of the youth are no longer subject to any re-education.
        On the Internet, you often come across videos where two amateurs communicate with young people. It's just thrash.
        Plus a lot of SBU agents. In order to quickly digest all this, we need mobilization and the transition of the NWO to a full-scale war.

        If you fight wisely, relying on modern means of reconnaissance / additional reconnaissance and defeat, then the losses will be many times and times less than what you declared.

        We can see with our own eyes an example of my being right. In the Kharkiv region, "ukrovoyska" advanced on unfortified positions, with the full support of NATO intelligence and their own technical equipment. Plus, the support of SBU assistants is in our rear.
        It is now clear that a third of the attackers are mercenaries from Western countries, a third are stubborn Nazis trained according to Western standards, and a third are the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And the losses there are not even 3 to 1, more.
        In order to clean up the rear after an offensive, large masses of troops are needed, specially trained for this. Read "In August XNUMX". We don’t have them close, there is no one to cook and there is no time.
        According to the administrations, they planned to slip through the Crimean version, with the participation of locals, such as Russkiy Mir. When it became clear that those who were doing this were either stealing or were incapable, the NWO had to be reformatted on the go. And the administrations set by us stupidly shoot. Not without the participation of those who receive Russian citizenship and our humanitarian assistance.
        Why is there a long time to explain, just recently discussed https://topcor.ru/27670-podrostki-v-krymu-pozhelali-ukraine-skorejshej-peremogi-a-rossii-smerti.html#comment-id-271560. These are the ones who left for our territory. To the Crimea, damn it ... Did you believe their apology? And who stayed behind?

    I can't understand here. Registered specifically (!) To ask. All sorts of smart people write that the management does not understand and blah blah blah. Don't you know that the leadership has masters in the form of the United States and treacherous elites under their leadership within our government?
    They didn’t hear anything when the USSR collapsed, as a result of capitulation in the Cold War with the USA? Not? And, apparently, you think that a state that has capitulated is then capable of making decisions on its own. So, no! We have been under their leadership for THIRTY years. And it still hasn't changed!
    Or do you seriously think that such prices for housing and communal services, transport, education and medicine, such pensions and salaries are NORMAL? For the country that won the Second World War and saved the whole world! Are we like this country?
    We are starting to turn on our heads a little and understand that until the traitors above are cleared out, we will NOT WIN in any way against the territory to which weapons, money and people are flowing in an endless stream. Which is pumped up by the 4th Reich under the name NATO. While even mobilization is forbidden to us and a limit is set on the number of troops that can participate in the war.
    Don't expect smart decisions from management! There, and without snotty everyone knows. Yes, but their hands are still tied. But this is for now...

    I'm already tired of quoting common truths. To all appearances, our leadership, to put it bluntly, Mr. Putin, is hovering in rosy clouds. It seems to him that, having lost 30% of the personnel of the dill, they will surrender, and the population of the dill will throw off the zelibobik regime and rush to meet our tanks with flowers. I will disappoint Putin - this will not happen. For the Ukrainians are so zombified that we are their worst enemies now. The degree of fooling has reached its climax. Remember Berlin in 1945. April month. It would seem that everything is clear to everyone - all fascists are kaput. And what - they gave up? No, they suffered losses - but they didn’t care about the losses, because they were hammered into their heads - the Russians would come, they would fuck all the women, the children with bayonets, and the soldiers would go to Siberia for logging. That's the power of suggestion. So the only way for Vova to stay normal is to immediately stop chewing snot and work across the spectrum. Namely - to smash the entire railway, all power plants to the same place, airfields and roads to the same place, along with bridges. For one horse-radish kaklo all this will blow up. This is for starters. But, apparently, it is necessary that Bandera blew up the Kremlin in order for Vova to start itching. Forgive me for calling Vova Vova, but I can’t look at it calmly any longer. And most importantly, you all know that I'm right. But be quiet.

    I watched this program about tanks and self-propelled guns as the basis of hostilities.
    Nothing new. And the Germans fought like that, but it did not help.
    This is his opinion, as it were, about nothing.
    Rather, I would put emphasis not on the front line, but on the rear pillars of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
    And these are railway roads, bridges, changing shoes (such as Chop) and, most importantly, the complete disabling of all power plants and transformer substations. And to be sure, so as not to restore - and ten transformer plants. Recent experience in the Kharkiv direction has shown that Ukraine is powerless against such an attack.

    Why not apply? A question for the president and staff officers. Perhaps there is blackmail from the other side or agreements, or maybe they are afraid of the humanitarian consequences.
    Indeed, after such a salvo (50 daggers at hydroelectric power stations and thermal power plants + 10 at transformer plants), Ukraine will cease to exist as a state for many years. And this will affect the entire people of Ukraine and therefore, probably, such a move is not included in the current concept of selective "humane" tactics.
    Decide management. If it wants to win, it will have to step on the throat of its own song. And if you prioritize the preservation of people and infrastructure, you need to be prepared for defeat.
    They won't pity us.

      You and Putin disagree on the aims and means of the special operation. That's just it is he supreme, he decides. And it was possible to provoke the exodus of Ukrainians to Europe by destroying civilian infrastructure in its first months. He does not want the collapse of either one or the other. He still hopes that the matter will be limited to the republics. In principle, if not, there is only one road to the Channel, and there is Piccadilly nearby, if anything.
