Don't agree with your entire post, I think you have the wrong impressions of what is going on.lartiste wrote: ↑19 Jun 2022 23:28
I disagree with your point. The basic argument is, that until now, we have not seen proper use of tanks on Russian side. They are trying to use the tanks, but they are far from rational use of tanks. At first I would like to point out the lack of any kind of security of tank units.
As you can see, usual russian modus operandi, all guns straight forward, no one is covering flanks, no drone or helicopter. I have seen hundreds of such videos and photos, when attacked from flanks, it is turkey shooting. Just compare it with this photo from Vietnam:
Tanks, even massed might be used, but first of all they need proper recon tools (drones, even equipped with thermovision), cover tools - helicopters or planes of close support, infantry and must be deployed reasonably and properly. We will see whether UA army will be able to perform any better in offensives.
My point is tank is still great tool, but need to be used properly with necessary support.
I will no longer post about the Ukraine war. Since discussion of the Ukraine war is banned on this forum my PM box is open.
