    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    The US is sending 40,000 rounds of artillery, Ukraine is using thousands per day. They’ll have enough artillery for a few weeks. We are working with partners to send more: https://theweek.com/russo-ukrainian-war/1012644/ukraine-might-be-running-out-of-artillery-rounds-us-official-warns?amp...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Sorry if I didn’t respond to this question. Here’s how I look at it “Long range missiles”, “short range missiles”, “mid range missiles”, “lower mid range missiles” “higher midrange missiles” “low altitude flying missiles” “high altitude flying missiles” … you’re getting stuck on range...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Yes I understand this W, I’m curious what makes you think I don’t? The US takes very measured steps when attacking the enemy infrastructure in Iraq, they would mostly bomb at night to ensure that civilians are not outside and getting what we coin “collateral damage.” I agree with this...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    @Stop crazy: No the article does not state that, just because the article doesn’t say that doesn’t mean it isn’t true: https://www.theage.com.au/national/3000-bombs-and-missiles-to-shock-and-awe-20030319-gdvebr.html I thought this would be common knowledge amongst people who lived through the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Russians might be firing that much now, but it comes back to the first 10 days of the war. The US was able to gain air superiority in Iraq within its first 10 days as they were able to hack as well as destroy the Iraqi infrastructure by sending over 2,000 missiles within the first several days...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I’m going to watch this video tonight when I have some time. No one has much insight into the Russia’s arsenal of bombs, which makes it concerning for me to leap into the fray of individuals who want us to escalate this war. Parts such as military chips are not accessible to Russia at this...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    There has been quite a bit of chatter about Russia not being able to control the Ukrainian airspace, the reason behind this isn’t because the Russians don’t have the expertise or weapons to do it. The problem was that Russia miscalculated Ukraine, and as a result, shot less short range...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    This question runs through my mind often, I don’t have an answer for this. And I don’t think our state department and defense has an inkling of an answer for us neither. Just how many of these large bombs (short of nuclear) do the Russians really have? In short, we really don’t know how many...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I would disagree that the Russians are fronting on this, making a less powerful bomb than nukes isn’t all that difficult, the one we were able to drop weights about 30,000 pounds from what I remember. But I do agree that deploying it is the challenge. However that challenge is negated by their...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    You may want to look up Russia’s “Father of all bombs.” The bomb is reportedly four times more powerful than the US military's GBU-43/B Massive Ordnance Air Blast bomb (whose official military acronym "MOAB" is often colloquially said as the "Mother of All Bombs"). This makes it the most...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    World War 1 casualties: 15-20 million. Zero nukes dropped. World War 2 casualties: 70-85 million. Only 2 nukes were dropped on Japan killing approximately 120,000-210,000. The rest were non nuke causalities. You cannot discount China’s involvement from the equation when talking about a World...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    It’s easy to feel some form of hubris watching Russia struggle with its offensive war on Ukraine due to supply chains, this doesn’t mean Russian’s defensive system is as bad, on the contrary, they have very capable defensive systems that’ll give us problems. The issue at hand is once you start...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    All good questions. We’ve heard the slogan “amateurs talk tactics, professionals study logistics.” To put it bluntly, the answer to all your questions comes down to money, and national security. Here’s how the $13 billion funding Congress approved for Ukrainian aid breaks down: From the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    I can’t say this about everyone here, but you’re one of the few that has intellect and the ability to decipher through vast amounts of military and political information. Most don’t understand the complexities around sending things like jet fighters and are driven emotionally to push our...
