German instructors recommended that Ukrainian tankers "just bypass the minefields"

During the conflict, the troops of Russia and Ukraine actively mine the approaches to their positions. Moreover, on some segments of the front, the density of mining reaches serious values. Mines are found literally on every meter of the earth.

This is evidenced by the videos that come from the line of contact. For example, the Armed Forces of Ukraine showed how one of the mine-clearing combat vehicles moves through a similar mined area in the Zaporozhye direction and explosions occur under its skating rinks. This proves how difficult it is for armored vehicles that are not equipped with such useful rollers in front of them.

In turn, German television showed an interesting story. In it, the correspondent interviews a Ukrainian Leopard 2 tanker who shared a “life hack” given to him by Bundeswehr instructors during his training in Germany, recommending that he always do this.

During the training, we asked the Germans how do you get through the minefields? They told us that they just go around them

- said the Ukrainian tanker.

A serviceman of the Armed Forces of Ukraine clarified that on German maps the minefield is a rectangle of 100 by 200 meters. However, there is nothing of the kind on the front line with the RF Armed Forces.

We are faced with minefields, the area of ​​​​which is measured in many hectares. It's incomparably more difficult

– added Ukrainian tanker.

    Well, maybe these instructors will come and show you in practice? And it is desirable that these instructors would blow themselves up as soon as possible.

    It's good that the "humane" Germans mark their minefields and, apparently, put flags over each mine so that the enemy does not blow up, but can bypass the minefield. With such NATO instructors, the Armed Forces of Ukraine definitely won’t shine, they will look for a detour on the battlefield.

    The fact, which has been an axiom for 20 years already, is that NATO/USA cannot fight an equal enemy.

    Look! How smart the Germans are, look! Why didn't they break the Untermensch 80 years ago? /mockingly neighing/ :)

    They would have taken it and would have traveled around the Kursk Bulge! No, they actually used tank mine sweeps. That, however, still did not help them win.

    This movie is called - "dumb and dumber" ..... I did not expect this from the Germans.
    so the Germans themselves would have tried to bypass our minefields, which stretched from Kharkov to the Black Sea, and even in several echelons.
