Brimestone was talked about on April 20.

https://navyrecognition.com/index.php/n ... raine.html

Things are happening really fast. The Ukrainians don't have proper vehicles like JLTV to carry this. The truck mounted launcher is suitable for small infiltration units, will be useful to strike on concentrated Russian armored formations, like that river crossing event.

Watched a few videos of special ops driving around in pick-ups. Instead of an M2 machine gun, they could have three long-range missiles.

Edit1: Large amount of smoke was visible around where the Russians tried to cross the river.

Edit2: The real wreck of the Mi-28 RF-13654. Note the large linear gash on the separated tail boom.

The Mi-28... is this the much publicized Starstreak shootdown? Or supposed Starstreak I should say?

I'm not sure what hit it, but man oh man.... this is the equivalent video of that T-72 who's turrent was last seen performing the world famous, post stall/falling leaf maneuver Russians trademarked years ago.

No, RF-13654 was supposedly shot down on May 7, not that one.

Edit:

A better video of the river crossing. Can see one of the tanks moving.

One of the best "memes" about this war, this one about a certain T-72:

First video shooting from the point of view of a Russian armored vehicle (BMP-3) shows their own losses.

Edit1:

A few old photos of the wreck of An-225

http://www.milwaukeeindependent.com/art ... ccupation/

Edit2:

Like clockwork

Every day, at about 8:00am, a Russian bomber appears in the sky over the Kyiv region and drops its bombs on residential buildings. Today, March 3, is no exception.

Edit3:

Looks like the wreck of a Mi-24/35

The photo of a Russian tank that looks like a skull from a bird's eye view went around the world – and it is now thanks to a viral tweet that she now also meets his photographer: Iryna Rybakova, soldier and press officer of the 93rd Ukrainian Armoured Brigade.

With her shot of the skull tank, she succeeded in probably one of the most iconic shots of the Russian war of aggression against Ukraine to date – the photo was shared millions of times and even made it onto the cover of the renowned "Economist" magazine.

Also a photo of the girl standing beside a Tochka-U

Edit1: A guy trapped on a sinking BMP, getting shelled, finally decided to swim back. A tank approaching the bank for no reason.

Edit2: Britain has so far sent more than 6,900 new anti-tank missiles, additional consignments of Javelin anti-tank missiles, air defence systems including Starstreak anti-air missiles, 1,360 anti-structure munitions and 4.5 tonnes of plastic explosives.

Edit3: The West has declared a "total hybrid war" against Russia and it is hard to predict how long it will last, Moscow's foreign minister has said.

"In the future, the world economy will be de-Americanised," he said in a speech on the 80th day of Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

"We did everything to avoid a direct clash - but now that the challenge has been thrown down, we of course accept it,"

Edit4: A new? wreck of a Flanker. No discernable markings.

Found a few high quality photos of the wreck of Mi-8 RF-19882, which I misidentified previously.

https://www.alamy.com/a-russian-helicop ... 97382.html

Edit1: Russian tanks commit mass suicide.

A T-72 disabled and abandoned near a trench. All hatches are open. Hit by Javelin. Moderate blow off. Burning for a while. When the flame seems to be subsiding, a very large detonation.
