The RF Armed Forces did not allow the transfer of a tank brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from Kherson near Svatovo

Well “pumped” with heavy tracked combat vehicles T-72AMT and T-72M1R, the 17th separate tank brigade named after Konstantin Pestushko (military unit A3283) of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine took part in the counteroffensive in the Kherson direction. After that, the Ukrainian command decided to quickly transfer this formation to one of the sectors of the "eastern front", but most equipment got stuck in the mud due to the rains that began on the Right Bank.

Tanks made their way from Kherson to Krivoy Rog for a long time to their PPD to regroup and replenish supplies in order to carry out subsequent redeployment and take part in a new counteroffensive near Svatovo (LPR). Some time later they arrived intelligencethat the 17th brigade allegedly reached the Kharkov region. It turned out that only the advanced consolidated company of this brigade managed to get into this region. All other units of this compound did not have time to leave their "abode".

On November 27, the RF Armed Forces launched a missile attack on infrastructure facilities in the Krivoy Rog region. After that, the head of the Krivoy Rog military administration, Alexander Vilkul, informed the public that as a result of the actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the railway in Krivoy Rog would not function for a long time. At the same time, the official did not specify about the arrivals, but the public immediately realized that the matter was serious.

It turned out that the RF Armed Forces had dealt a blow to the transport economy of the region, causing significant damage. This made it possible to disrupt the transfer of the 17th OT Brigade, however, as well as other formations from the AFU grouping on the right bank of the Dnieper River. However, the transfer of Ukrainian troops has not been canceled, but only significantly slowed down, removing the moment of unexpected appearance on one or another sector of the front. The main railway junction in the city of Dnipro (Dnepropetrovsk), through which the logistics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine go, continues to work, so it is only a matter of time when the enemy personnel and equipment arrive at the VPD.

In addition, the question remains open where exactly the main attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will begin - in the Zaporozhye direction (towards Melitopol and Berdyansk) or in the Svatovo region (to try to take control of the right side of the Krasnaya River).

    In addition, the question of where exactly the main attack of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will begin is still open.

    It's good that there was no Internet in the Second World War and even until the end of the 20th century!
    Place your bets now...
    They know everything that is needed in the bet and do it right!
    This is the business of the military, and not all sorts of hacks and couch strategists.

    The idea of ​​delaying the 17th Tank Brigade in the Kherson area is quite obvious and has been repeatedly expressed.
    It would be interesting to learn about its implementation. If you just kill a railway with a rocket, then it will be fixed in 6 hours. But we are talking (in the Ukrainian media) about a long break in the work of the railway. in the Krivoy Rog region. There are no details anywhere.
    I became curious how it was done.
    Having carefully studied the map, I found that the shortest way to transfer the brigade is possible by rail. through Krivoy Rog. There are two suitable branches. The brigade is dispersed in the triangle Nikolaev, Kherson, Snigirevka. One branch goes directly from Nikolaev to Krivoy Rog and approaches it from the west. Another goes from Nikolaev through Snigirevka and approaches from the south.
    We are talking about the defeat of the railway. it is in the region of Krivoy Rog, and one region is called. This is the Lozovatskaya rural community of the Krivoy Rog region.
    Let's see if there is a possibility of a long-term (at least a week or two) shutdown of this branch?
    It is in the Lozovatsky district that there is a station (and a village) Musievka. A two-track railway approaches the station from the west. There are more tracks at the station, and immediately to the east of the station, the tracks diverge and the defeat becomes much more complicated.
    So you need to look west of the station. There, right on the border of the village of Musievka, the railway. crosses (above) a concrete overpass. If the overpass at the intersection with the railway. correctly direct the Dagger, then it will break through the overpass, turn the railway around. and bring down the remains of the overpass on the way.
    Just hemorrhoids not for one week. Everyone saw the funnels from the Dagger.
    This is one hit.
    The second branch comes from the south. Near the town of Apostolovo (25 kilometers from the outskirts of Krivoy Rog). In Apostolovo the road diverges in 3 directions. Which makes it harder to defeat. But right in front of Apostolovo the road crosses the Dnieper - Krivoy Rog canal. The road is two-track, side by side are two small bridges. According to Caliber to the bridge - the road is blocked (definitely not for one week) and, at the same time, the canal.
    That's probably how it all happened. Let's wait for the information on the real events.

    Some time later, information was received that the 17th brigade allegedly reached the Kharkov region. It turned out that only the advanced consolidated company of this brigade managed to get into this region. All other units of this compound did not have time to leave their "abode".

    And what prevents the VKS and MLRS Tornado-S from striking at a tank brigade "stuck in the mud" with cluster homing munitions and burning it until the ground freezes and the tanks go on the attack?
