New kino from Perunhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPhycuLAtaw
>>57544743Get this out of here.
>>57544754Shut up, zigger.
>>57544743give me a tl;dwI will watch it but only as background noise so I barely pick up anything more than the broadest strokes from these videos
Just watched it at 1.75x speed. Nice video. Reminds me of Perun's first few vids where he constructed his points piece by piece and got me to see his points without feeling like I was being strongarmed.
>>57544754fucking end yourself
>>57544765>>57544794>>57544880why do you like him so much?all his videos are very basic and can be summarized in 2 sentences
>>57544857Attacking well defended positions really sucks. What Ukraine sees as a lot of ammo is seen by Russia as barely enough to get by. Bakmut is useless, but both sides want it because it's like the unofficial Superbowl of Ukraine and we're seeing what happens when both sides are willing to hold a position at any cost.
>>57544743>winter offensivethey have like 2 days left?
>>57544857War is hard, political meddling sucks.
>>57544893Because I like the long form analysis. I don't need things summed up in two sentences.
>>57544857>"We are going to take a minute to talk about the shovel thing."
>>57544743laserpig mad a video imitating his style and it was better than laserpigs other videos, common anglosphere dub
>>57544743Daily reminder this faggot was until 2022 some gaymer streamer and has no military or academic credentials. He regurgitates opinions that can be found on Twitter or here.
>>57544972Dude works in defense procurement.
>>57544932then they need to start pushing the line if they want to be home for spring break
>>57544932winter ended 19 days ago
>>57544972daily reminder that russian shills deserve to be sent to the front and droned.
>>57545005Still cold in Donbas
>>57544969Fuck that faggot. First time I got recommended one of his vids was something called "Shut up about the f35". I was like "Well screw you too" and hid his channel forever without even watching the video. Goddamn dipshit.
>>57544965long form analysis of twitter posts is still just watered down twitter posts, but i respect your right to enjoy Paul Harrell thanksgivings special
>>57545048he's literally right though in that his main point is "half the shit about the plane is classified so we don't know what it can and can't do"
>>57545135Oh please. I don't need top secret access to know that the plane can't carry more fuel than an f-15 or something like that.
>>57545005>winter ended 19 days agometeorogical winter but astronomical will end on march 21
>>57545096Sure are a lot of twitter posts about the origins of the Bundeswehr's dysfunctional procurement process, huh?
>>57545048wtf i hate him now
>>57544972Yes, dont forget your military expert from the chuggers on /pol/, the greatest generation of high IQ mind the world offers. Also telegram channels are way more superior as twitter, full of expert, especially the runic ones.
>>57545223>ure are a lot of twitter posts about the origins of the Bundeswehr's dysfunctional procurement process, huh?yes. i'm pretty sure i follow same OSINT guys as he.are you implying he has inside sources?
>>57545096Twitter is a bitch to navigate.
>31 post 18 postersIts already starting lul
>>57545286Literally a sign of a good thread where you can strike up a conversation, in my experience. Either there's one guy who will respond to anything you say, or there's about 4 guys. Either way you will not be left hanging in a thread that's got some hawks like that.
>>57545048Lol shut the fuck up retard God damn
>>57544972>has no military or academic credentialsHe works in defence procurement; you zigger. He switched from gaymer stuff (because there's plenty of that content on YouTube) to making power point videos about military analysis because this is his area of expertise.
>>57545315Lazerpig is a goddamn fag who needs a goddamn good beating, IMO. Dude needs to learn some respect before he makes those video titles.
>>57545286i figure perun must be worth watching if glavset cocksleeves are so fucking triggered by his stuff.
>>57545340Lol naw he may be a faggot but he's a cool faggot that dabs on retarded ziggers such as yourself.
>>57545369>>57545391I just hate him because his titles are insulting.
>>57544743Remember when this guy said the Russians was going to learn from their mistakes, and prepare for a offensive that would be tactically sound and cohesive?Remember when he said they were going to train their soldiers properly, and equip them with state of the art gear? What happened to his predictions?
>>57545408Are you implying that russians aren't humans?
>>57545252The TLDW of that F35 video is that people claiming it's bad are retards and reformers and people should shut the fuck up about it since half the shit is classified to begin with so it's hard to gauge how OP it is
>>57545403get over it fag.
>>57545403Get the stick out of your arse fucking homo nerd lmao
>>57545414No, Perun is the one that says they were.
>>57545403If you think his titles are offensive or whatever the fuck, then maybe get off the internet and this website since you're not equipped to not get butthurt over the smallest shit nigga
>>57544932An analysis of something that is over? Never heard of such a thing.
>>57544863Yeh, sure :)
So we're 100% sure the supposed Russian build up in Belarus was a feint? (that the Ukies apparently didn't fall for anyways)
>>57544893Sum it up then
>>57545525Yep, Ukies pulled most troops away from the border because russians kept transporting the same 1000 mobiks in and out.
>>57545157But you do need top secret access to know how efficient it is at burning that fuel. Holy shit you retards are insufferable.
>>57545210Refers to the earth's axis tilt. Basically, the hemisphere is currently pointed away from the sun, on March 21'st it won't be.
>>57545550Oh fuck off. I can know what the maximum possible energy is from X amount of fuel. I can know that the f-35 isn't going to outrange the f-15 because it has less fuel and flies lower.
Perun just copies what he’s read on Reddit and jazzes it up to make video out of it, right? I’ve always wondered if he’s a primary propaganda producer or just a guy working the secondary propaganda market? Lately I’ve been leaning towards the latter.
>>57545316Perun pls. Being a janitor at the ministry of defence building doesn't make you a defence anal-yst.
>>57545678For example, Task & Purpose (propaganda reader).
>>57545678That Russia is losing. He expects the people watching his videos don't know what's really going on,.
>>57545669He reads stuff from the public space, applies his defence analytics degree to it, then posts it. A lot of what he says sounds obvious in hindsight, but that's the hook. He says stuff that you only notice is obvious after hearing it.
>>57545692Are you saying that Russia is winning?
>>57545316>works in defence procurement; youNever been proven.
>>57545692>>57545688Hmmm, You guys sound like idiots, since both T&P and Perun have said pro russian shit when it's merited in all their videos.
>>57545706The hohols are only occupying a small part of our country, it's only a matter of time before we taking it back, we winning
>>57545448No I don't think I will :3 <3 UwU :*
> weekly Perun thread> weekly glavest, /pol/ and brown butthurt
>>57545718yeah its clear that a one hour long powerpoint is too much information to absorb for the indians and russians here. Because he isn't really a whole SLAVA UKRAINE CRIMEA NEXT WEEK type creator. I think a few videos ago he put it correctly: Russia has lost the war. The question remaining is whether or not Ukraine can win it. And I think the answer is probably not if you define victory as return to 2014 borders or even broader, 2012 borders. Unless Russia faces a political collapse which does not seem likely aside from a potential untimely death of Putin. My prediction for the course of the war is a summer offensive with limited success that splits the landbridge, Ukrainians take back most of Western Zaporozhia and all Kherson except maybe some sothern portions. But have no ability to storm Crimea and also cannot make gains in Luhansk or Donetsk and we end up back in attritional warfare of gradually diminishing intensity.
>>57545907>But have no ability to storm CrimeaThere has been not a single time in history when someone managed to hold Crimea without controlling mainland connection
>>57544972He is a procurement guy, he probably has plenty of knowledge and experience to work with.
How come almost all of the criticism is about his experience and not his points?
>>57545408>”Surely, the russians are retard but they can’t be THAT retard”Common mistake when analyzing the russian military.
>>57546005Pretty pathetic gains for the amount of lost vehicles and men.
>>57546005Does Russia not hold significantly LESS territory than they did in March 2022? And to call the assfucking they're receiving in Bugmutt and Vuglydar 'occasional setbacks'? That's pretty insulting to the vatniks, honestly.
>>57545360they can't make any decent arguments against the videos themselves so the only thing they have left is calling him a faggot and telling people not to watch them.
>>57545403Look at his thinskinned bitch. How the hell do you even function in society if a goddamn video title or people on the internet calling you out affects you so much.
>Open the video>He starts it by making fun of Ron DeSantis and shilling Joe BidenPassed!
>>57546116Enjoying your pudding?
>>57544863listened to the whole thing, he never says anything of the sort
Listened to this while driving today. It strengthened my opinion that Ukraine should do an orderly retreat from Bahkmut. It's too much of a meatgrinder and it no longer heavily favors the defenders. Instead they should pull back a little bit and prepare for a concentrated counter-attack towards Melitopol and the Azov sea.
>>57544857>losing man power parity in the next round of mobiks>Russians willing to commit regulars, so kill as many as possible to reduce the experience pool for said incoming mobiks to learn anything from>allowing Russians to disengage and reorganize the actual offensive capable combat power undesirable if there's going to be a move on the South>still to muddy to do shit beside this>>57546347Since open source commentators are stating the obvious, which will be obvious even to the Russians, dangling Bakhmut in front of them as imminently evacuating so they continue to sunk cost commit experienced formations is sucking man power that otherwise will be committed to defending against that kind of Melitopol offensive. Those experienced troops down in Kherson were the difference between orderly withdrawal across the river and a rout. That core is limited close to the initial invasion figure and paring down the kind of numbers they're doing in Bakhmut is significant not just in terms of body count.
>>57545669Why do jazzed up reddit posts trigger you so much then? is it just the get-reaction to Australians online?
This guy is clearly on the take from glowies
>>57546061>>57546061>Does Russia not hold significantly LESS territory than they did in March 2022?You better believe it.
>>57544863I like to make stuff up too.
every thread I go in there are deleted posts. jannies must not be enjoying this year long raid.
>>57544966anon please give me shovel lore.>please
>>57545046Just the way he likes it. And is contractually obligated to be.
>>57546565He does propaganda. I’ll admit it’s one of the better propaganda producers on YouTube, but I’m tired of Western-style pro-Ukrainian propaganda. Russian media propaganda is also boring but sometimes their clowns can be amusing at the very least. I’m just not the right consumer demographic for propaganda. You, evidently, are.
>>57546944Russian propaganda consists of memes. Western propaganda consists of dead Russians.
>>57545403The fuck autism is this? I swear it's the worst thing about autism. Half are like "How could you spell Kolkata Calcutta that is so insulting I will never speak to you again" and the other half are Laserpig because they also have adhd?
>>57544743Wait, Russian winter offensive actually happened? That miling around Bakhmut and whatever the fuck they were doing in Vuhlebar was this feared winter offensive?
>>57545669No. He will find Osint sources to support shit he professionally knows in order to release information so his boss doesn't disappear him
>>57546994Hey, don't forget the 100 metres they gained in the forests south of Kreminna!
>>57546994I mean, it's mid March now. We're in Spring. Vatniks murdered Punxsutawney Phil's Canadian cousin so they could get 6 more weeks of winter. They STILL couldn't get Bugmutt.
>>57547042I just thought that it simply never happened or something, just some probing attacks and trying to take Bakhmut, when that failed by mid-february I figured they cancelled it
>>57545669he's a stealthy propagandist.a little smarter than the slava kiyvi mutants.you can actually listen to him for 1 hour.obviously, his conclusion everytime is that Russia is losing, Russia is done and slava nafo.it just takes him 1 hour of spinning and half truths to get there.
>>57545525 god fucking damnit. they are there to siphone the belarus army of equipment and incorporate it into the vatnik army. they are preparing full officialy occupation. Why is this such a mind bending concept to understand? Other then some recon groups poking the border regions to see what the ukranians have done there has been absolutely zero build up of any kind there. Everybody scattered across the country in different cities across bases doing prep work.
>>57545408Literally nobody expected vatniks to be this retarded.
>>57547075Don't feel bad, anon. You expected a winter offensive to look like what you thought it would be. Most people have an idea of what that would look like that would match. But that's the problem. When you're dealing with a military as hobbled and incompetent as Russia's...that is what a winter offensive in this war looks like. Hordes of mobiks devouring drone grenades, and armored columns being abandoned at the first inkling of enemy contact. At this point, it's just a waiting game for the Western armor to get there so the ukies can mop up this embarrassment of a military.
>>57547146/k/ope, seethe and dilate trannyfag
>>57545408>Remember when this guy said the Russians was going to learn from their mistakes, and prepare for a offensive that would be tactically sound and cohesive?He was not wrong. They tried but fail (again)
>>57545450Everyone makes mistakes.
>>57547236anyone pro that guy is wearing a wig, let me tell you that.
>>57544743Russia will win or else the whole world will be nuked!!! This is not a bluff
>>57544893Ok, go ahead. Sum up the video in 2 sentences.
>>57547641Russia is losing, Ukraine is winning, only trust CIA and NATO approved OS intelligence sources like Oryx blog which is run by the same people who worked at Bellingcat which is a CIA operation
>>57544743is Putin getting indicted? I feel like the walls are closing in with this bombshell
>>57548083he's literally doing car races on streets of Mariupol
>It's only a twenty minute drive from the trenches to somewhere you can get a pizza.I hope the delivery guy's are getting hazard pay.
>>57548230Well, I guess the HIMARS guys have their work cut out for them.
>>57545340lol i know thats you gonzalo
>>57545252i wish i was dog (good boy)
>>57546736they delete their own posts so it looks like an jannie did itits an inside job anon
>>57548502that doesn't make any sense if they're getting 1 ruble per reply. not everyone can see dead posts
>>57547146His ongoing conclusion since march or so is that ukraine will win if the west supplies them properly and lose otherwise. He also thinks the west is currently not supplying them sufficiently
>>57548064Tell me you didnt watch the video without telling me you didnt watch the video
>>57546881>Western media is stupid>Rifles and shovels somehow magically became just shovels, because journalists are lazy>Rusnigs still have riflesSo what everyone except CNN already knew.
>>57545048I want you to know I appreciate your sense of humor.
>>57548680I stopped watching his videos because he’s stopped talking about things within the supposed domain of his competencyAnd when he talks about things at an amateur level he relies entirely on Ukrainian and western propaganda
>>57546964Whose flag is more schizo?
>>57544972It's kinda surreal to see the guy who used to make the Dominions tutorials I watched discussed on /k/ now.He is legitimately qualified though.
>>57546881>>57548689Russian artillery superiority has slackened to the point where instead of driving the Ukies away through making their position miserable to live in, Russian troops occasionally have to LARP as the Death Korps of Krieg and dig them out the hard way.
>>57548064So you're just upset that he won't pretend Russia is winning for you?
>>57547042>Vatniks murdered Punxsutawney Phil's Canadian cousin so they could get 6 more weeks of winter.They got the Chornobayivka time loop instead.
>>57548774So you’re just upset that people don’t uncritically accept western media and glownigger media narratives?
>>57548843Twelve months straight of being objectively correct on all accounts does a lot for the glowies' credibility.
>>57544743Shit, ukies really are high on copium if don't understand that there were no offensive form Russian yet and all they do is just grind ukies with arty and only preparing for an assaultZSU are loosing like 1k people every day and that's why Zeleboba announced 38th wave of mobilization. At some point ukraine run out of people and THEN Russians offensive begin
>>57544743I liked this bit >UK MoD says some mobiks are being forced to attack with nothing but rifles and shovels >mass media: RUSSIA IS CHARGING UKRAINIAN TRENCHES WITH NOTHING BUT SHOVELS i fucking hate journalists so much.
>>57548877Objectively correct about what?Western media won’t report on the press gangs going around Ukraine forcing teenagers to the front and accounts of foreign legionaries saying the Ukrainian casualties are enormous
>>57548906I know this is a troll post, but for any rts enthusiasts that think that's a legitimate strategy in a real war is retarded
>>57548906You suck at trolling
>>57548843There's a lot less cognitive dissonance when your mental model of the war is 'Russia is stuck in a quagmire' rather than '2 more weeks until inevitable victory zisters'
>>57548916You mean the fake videos from telegram?
>>57548916>Western media won’t report on the press gangs going around Ukraine forcing teenagers to the frontYes, the people getting vanned in Odessa and only Odessa are definitely a DNR-tier press ganging, and not 5th columnists being rounded up.>accounts of foreign legionaries saying the Ukrainian casualties are enormousWow, a bunch of GWOT guys get to a real war and go "wow, this shit sucks", color me astounded and demoralized.
>>57548959>reddit larpers mad about war>professional soldiers mad about Slavic incompetence>stay at home armchair larpers mad about zogbots seize the opportunity to call 'em pussiesAs expected.
>>57548948>>57548959>”THATS FAKE”>But the 10:1 kill death ratio in Bakhmut is totally real, there’s been half a million Russian casualties, so is the coming spring offensive guys, that’s totally real and going to happen
>>57548989>stay at home armchair larpers mad about zogbots seize the opportunity to call 'em pussiesI said nothing of the fucking sort, thank you very much, so let me make this easy for you to understand: the greatest constant in all the history of warfare is "the front sucks". If you ever ask a man on the front how the war is going, he will tell you "it sucks". When you have a guy with experience, he can tell you "this sucks more than Iraq", but ultimately, that's to be expected.>>57549027nice strawman, I'm sure it sounded good in your head.
>>57549110Ukraine claims to be killing 1000+ per day while taking barely any casualties Meanwhile western observers near Bakhmut have said the Ukrainian brigades they worked with or observed have taken enormous casualties and have had to be reconstituted multiple times
>>57549150Yes the telegram sources are true and are totally in the front lines. Nigger.
>>57549150Casualty rates are hard to know for a civilian in a country far away from the war, but by the measures we can observe Russia is doing much worse than most of the failed invasions of the last 100 years.
>>57549177do the world a favor, open with NTA if you're going to jump in and make a tard of yourself.>>57549150Who is "Ukraine" in this? The government? Last I heard, they weren't releasing casualty figures at all. Or are you referring to some Telegram account that may as well be Intel Slava U?>Ukrainian brigades they worked with or observed have taken enormous casualties and have had to be reconstituted multiple timesWow, the front fucking sucks, imagine my shock.
>>57549272The Ukrainian military releases figures daily and claims 164,910 KIA which would imply over half a million casualties
>>57549027Why are you incapable of addressing anything said directly, and instead have to go off on tangents each reply?We both know the answer, I just want the thought to cross your mind again before you make another disingenuous post. I mean, I know you're going to, it's just funny.
>>575493691: Admissions, dipshit, not claims.2: No, that's not fucking kills, that's "unrecoverable" casualties, as the Slavs put it. Casket or medical discharge, he's not going back to the front.3: Of fucking course kill claims are exaggerated, this happens in every fucking war. Need I remind you that Russia claims to have destroyed the entire Ukrainian air force several times over?
>>57549493>>57549471What’s the difference between “obviously fake” claims by the Ukrainian military and claims by intelligence agencies?Nothing. Glowies are not trustworthy
>>57549369Can you cite these?
>>57549596Ukraine pravdaMinusrus uses them for their casualties calcaulations
>>57548681Can I get the original footage?
>>57544972>he's so mindbroken by twitter that anything that draws him away from there is le bad
>>57544743>If the other side can't tell whether your offensive has gone in or not, that's pretty embarrassing
>>57549878>Baby have you put it in yet?
>>57545408What is the tactical advantage of making up dumb shit? What is the tactical advantage of dabbing on your own military to try and make an anonymous youtuber look bad?
>>57548708I repeat my statement. This video used russian sources as well just like all his other ones
>>57548708So you didnt watch, and have formed incorrect assumptions of his conclusions based on your preconceived ideas
>>57549978I don’t have time to watch 1 hour video essays if it’s based off of nothing
>>57550005But you have time to seethe
>>57548740Which is a serious problem for Russia since they rely heavily on the work their artillery is doing. Their infantry was mostly bad save a few elite units at war's beginning and most of those good troops have since been noticeably denuded, witness the Vuhledar shit-show.
>Perun video comes out>vatnigs proceed to shit their pants crying and screaming about fake newslol lmao, every time.
>>57545624Ironically, a good portion of the video is about people like you, who take one "hard" stat and use it to justify their stance on something, while largely being ignorant of how modern combat works
>>57548731Surreal, isn't it? We really live in crazy times.Although I kind of miss his dominions videos, GC doesn't make the anymore either and Lucid is basically the last big one left making any.
>>57545624What are you talking about? The F-35 has more internal fuel capacity, based on public figures, than the F-15 at 18.2k vs 13.5k. Combine that with having one versus two engines, without drop tanks the F-35 has better range.
>>57544972I would argue that the exact flavor of autism needed to win multiple games of dominions is exactly the kind of qualification needed for military logistics. >>57550504Something about Lucid just gets on my nerves, and it's hard to quantify. I'm glad for him that he's exploded in popularity, its just hilarious to go look at his videos. One week Jinn with a few thousand views, the next week it's Ukraine and a million.
>>57544857He had to do an entire bit about how retards thought that Russia was attacking Bakhmut with just shovels. He then criticises the media for saying this because the source they cite doesn't say this shit.
>>57545535>>57547641>Ok, go ahead. Sum up the video in 2 sentences.1) Russians are weetodded fetal alcohol addled shitwits.2) Dey gon' lose.
>>57547420sorry, your transmission is breaking up...all I heard was "Russia will be nuked by the whole world."
>>57548906If Russia were winning, why are we even talking about shitholes like Pisky or Bakhmut or Tinyvillagekov instead of marveling about how thoroughly and absolutely they control Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kherson and Zaporizhia?You cretinous halfwit!
>>57548906I came here to laugh at you.
>>57550789>without drop tanksUhuh.
>>57550270Sounds like you're saying his argument is that we know nothing, therefore anything is possible. It's not. It's like the anti war commentators who say we don't know the culture of russia, we don't know what we're dealing with, etc. There's this tremendous assumption of ignorance, which ironically displays a lack of self awareness on the part of the accuser.
Fucking bizarre how this guy triggers the shills here to the degree he does...
>>57551958>why are we even talking about shitholes like Pisky or Bakhmut or Tinyvillagekov>instead of Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kherson and Zaporizhia?Ask yourself what the precondition(s) now is/are for Russia to consider the latter as an immediate obtainable objective? What must first occur?
>>57550005You literally see the sources in the slides for his data that he uses in his analysis. Are you even trying?
>>57552062Yes, and? Referring back to >>57545157, this anon is factually incorrect as the F-35 has better internal fuel, less fuel consumption, and can also have drop tanks. inb4 "but muh stealth"
>>57552173>F-35 can also have drop tanksGotcha now. No it can't. It doesn't have any tanks rated for it. Go ahead and look. There's no pics of an f-35 with drop tanks. Just some CGI proposals and rumors of Israel trying to make one. The f-15 always uses drop tanks. You will almost never see one doing any kind of mission without drop tanks.
>>57552158Not fuck up on day 1 and spend the next year pretending they didn't want Kiev in the first place?
>>57544743Too much faggy talking, i need /k/ino footage
>>57548916>Why won't Western media report on [made up shit I read on telegram]?It's a mystery, anon.
>>57549150>have taken enormous casualties and have had to be reconstituted multiple timesThat's how unit rotation and force regeneration works.
>>57548916>why isn't BBC covering these bullshit claims I heard on RT?The world wonders. Post guns you own.
>>57552278No one outside of 4chan or Reddit make these claims. You people make them up and then attack those claims you just created. In reality, Russians simply don’t talk about it. Now the main narrative is that they’re effectively at war with America and Western Europe (mainly America).
>>57552398Russia themselves made the claim that a decapitation strike would have the bulk of the fighting over within two weeks. They made this claim to their own commanders in their official comms:>The synchronisation matrix of the 1st Guards Tank Army (Western Military District), for example, captured near Kyiv in March 2022, stated that by D+10 the force would ‘proceed to the blocking and destruction of individual scattered units of the Armed Forces and the remnants of nationalist resistance units’. ( https://static.rusi.org/359-SR-Ukraine-Preliminary-Lessons-Feb-July-2022-web-final.pdf )Putin kept the planning secret from many of those who would be crucial in carrying it out, did little or no red-teaming, and assumed blue-sky outcomes even in his worst case scenarios. The RF fucked up on day 1 and has spent the past year trying to claim that Kyiv and Odesa weren't debacles.

I typed this for a Russia invaded Ukraine because US invaded Iraq thread that got deleted.Suck my dick, posting it here.>America>Iraq>2003Iraq had previously tried to pull a "Crimea" by invading and annexing Kuwait as "historically Iraqi lands".America said naw.We kicked the shit out of Saddam and let him keep running Iraq.>Saddam thought he couldn't keep the Iranians and US from fucking him up without nuclear/biological/chemical weapons>All that shit is expensive>Just pretend you have a weapons program to troll everybody while you live a life of luxury as despot for lifeThen 9/11 happened and the west got real, real fucking serious about Muslim terrorism.Iraq was naturally the ideal target for regime change.>Iraq swore up and down they didn't have WMD after trying to appear strong/crazy by having WMD for decades.>The west had bad humint they didn't analyze critically for political reasons.Shock and awe, bitches!Soviet Union dissolves.Russia:UKRAINE CAN BE A COUNTRY!GIVE UP NUKES, WE GUARANTEE BORDERS!Y'all are NAZIS! We're taking Crimea! And Donbass!Ukraine was never a country!We're taking it all!>Fails conquest>Whines about NATO>Threatens nuclear war because they can't beat UkraineI'd like to take a moment to point out that Russia fostered the neonazi retardation in Ukraine by chasing militant right wingers out of Russia and into their then puppet state of Ukraine because it made Russia more stable and helped undermine Ukraine at home and abroad.
>>57552158Why would they need to take bukbrokmutt to take Kyiv? Or Kherson? Or Odessa? Look at a map retard
>>57544743>1 hourInto the trash it goes, if you can't convey information in a digestible short period of time, you're not worth listening to

>>57544914Thanks anon, saved me time, but will probably watch tomorrow while I'm cooking or something.
>>57552548>thread that got deleted.It was a thread? I thought it was just one poster being off-topic in some other dude's thread.
>>57550005>it's based off of nothing>please ignore the sources and citations he includes with the video
>>57544972Good to know anyone can pivot and wildly succeed in this world. Thanks anon for confirming this. He is inspiring to us all as an example of growth and change. Bless you.
>>57552668I mean, that's the theme of the post the retarded vatnik made that I was replying to. So yeah, he was probably off topic.
>>57545096I don't use twitter
>>57552620Neither have you if a 1 hour PP presentation on a complex topic is enough to make you start getting antsy. Do you have any idea how long I have to sit through presentations on basic infantry practices every other week? Sit down, scrub.
>>57552158Bro, that's the point. If the Russians were succeeding they wouldn't have stalled out trying to take Pisky or Bakhmut or Tinyvillagekov. They'd already have them and we'd be taking about the Russian offensives towards Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kherson, and Zaporizhia. Not launching your big attack because you've been trying (and failing) to reach the jumping off point for eight months is what failure looks like.
>>57552601Zoomer attention span.
>>57552398>t. guy pretending they didn't want Kyiv in the first place
>>57552262why is this an issue when we have tanker drones and will soon have stealth tanker drones
>>57552278>Not fuck up on day 1>>57552592>Why would they need to take bukbrokmutt to take Kyiv?>>57552744>stalled out trying to take Pisky or Bakhmut or TinyvillagekovCan any of you internet generals figure out what the precondition is for moving on any of those major cities? I'll give you all another chance to try and figure out the strategic reality of the situation. This isn't to say that one side or the other is winning. Just what exactly is it that Russia needs to accomplish before they could possibly move on the capitol.
>>57553276Holy shit you’re retarded haha
>>57553318>No, I'm not going to venture an answer, but you're defo big dumdum retard, he, he >Gotem!Yeah
>>57553335Yeah this is 4chan, not a college debate hall. You’re retarded. You’re also doing the gay faggot thing where you pretend there’s some super intelligent answer to you gay retarded question and act like everyone else is a faggot for not seeing itWhy don’t you post your ebin warrior’s secret? Or are you worried it’s obviously retarded
>>57552882Seems like you've got it all figured out. Looks like Lazerpig was wrong to assume nobody understands the f-35. This was the real issue all along.
>>57552601Do you read any books?
>>57553276The preconition is to invade from the north and not waste time and men on taking land to add in the southeast.
>>57544972Only some leftypol retard would think being a Dominions enjoyer undermines someone's authority in any way.
>>57544972>you can't work defense procurement and enjoy vidyaWhy not?
>>57544743Perun is the dryest most boring fucking commentator in the entire ukraine war grift sphere
>>57554272my cock is dry and boring
>>57552620>You've never been in a briefing room in your lifeunfortunately I have
>>57546994They did attack all over the frontline to be fair, except in Kherson and that Zaporzive place.
>>57555059They attacked in Zaporizhia. Did you forget about Grant offensive where Russians were two hours away from taking Orkhiv and Ukraine was already building trenches in Zaporizhia city? And then turns out Russian just sent few hundred mobiks to die on fields next to first village
>>57554272Nah that's Anders Puck Nielsen
>>57555166Shit, was the offensive such a shitfest even I didn't notice?
>>57555221I think we got used to shit offensives and now only hear about the really shit ones.
>>57555221>the offensive such a shitfest even I didn't notice?Basically, yes.
>>57552398Russian generals are shitting on each other for not being able to take Kiev but they totally didn't want it :)
>>57555059They've been bombing random parts of Kherson the whole time with some weird ass lower than arab tier shit
>>57544743perun is the natural hypertrophy of /k/the best information packaged in a rambly annoyingly long format. brevity is a talent and these niggas got none of it which ironically makes me not want to hear their takes
>>57553276>Just what exactly is it that Russia needs to accomplish before they could possibly move on the capitol.Strategically? They'd need to have an acquiescent majority, or in the best case scenario they'll be dealing with stiff military resistance all the way there and then partisan flare-ups for the rest of their occupation. And the zeitgeist in Ukraine right now suggests that the battle for hearts and minds was a decisive rout for the RF.
>>57544754fuck no, faggot.
What nationality is this guy?
>>57555856The world wonders.
>>57555928That’s the most impressive thing I’ve ever seen
>>57555928Fucking aussies man.
>>57546994Maybe you have been putting attention to Bahkmut and Vuhlebar due to mainstream media, but yes, the Russians did attempt a general offensive in all the fronts, but those two fronts were the most hot and resource applied.
>>57544981Nope.No evidence of that.
>>57555965>>57555985This is Perun writing his slides for next week.
>>57556017All the proofs I need is the huge amount of malding glavsats that emerge every Sunday when he releases a new deck of slides.
>>57550970>Something about Lucid just gets on my nerves, and it's hard to quantify.Yeah I totally understand that, quite a few have that issue with him.>I'm glad for him that he's exploded in popularity, its just hilarious to go look at his videos. One week Jinn with a few thousand views, the next week it's Ukraine and a million.Yes, yes it is. I'm glad he decided to make use of it, considering I really like had ukraine videos.>>57555557>the best information packaged in a rambly annoyingly long format.What are you even talking about? He isn't rambling excessively, covers substantial amounts of information per video and always notes the key points in his slides.>>57555928>the one on the right that stops before anything happensAlways makes the webm for me.
>>57545408He's not in charge of Russian strategic planning, it seems...
>>57552158If they weren't shit they would be able to take Kharkiv in a dayIt's literally less than 50 miles from Belgorod
>>57555221Unironically yesThey stalled out and returned to constant small scale probing attacks with a few days
>>57555557>takesThis is how I know your opinion is worthless
>>57555557You're just making excuses for your own ADHD. You did horribly in school.
>>57555557I don't think you know what actual rambling is. In fact I don't think you're cognizant enough for that, you just use it for anything that goes over the TikTok video time limit.
>>57552097It's long-form, properly sourced breakdowns of why the Russians are performing as poorly as they are. No memes, no hyperbole, no insults, just cold, to the point facts and assessments on a corrupt and rotted institution. They bought into the hype and have their egos bruised, and all they can do is lash out.
>playing diablo 4 beta>group up with some randos, we have VC>1 guy just keeps autistically spouting random rome 2 shit>makes 2 guys leave>starts talking about ukraine war>says the ukraine is losing and the US should force a peace deal>russia is going to win, ukraine and US/NATO can't stand up to russia when it goes full strength>tell him he's retarded, that the heart of the RU army got ripped out last year when VDV, spetznas and even the contract soldiers in training regiments were wiped out, 1st GTA got absolutely wrecked in kharkov offensive and they lost large numbers of irreplacable T-82BVM>he says that the losses are in fact replacable, the russian army just "bloodied" itself to gain experience and will eventually steam roll ukraine>he believes the US military in it's current state cannot stand up to russia and would be steamrolled in a peer v. peer war>he is an american in the rural midwest that votes republican
>>57545974they don't watch the videos and just shit on people with rapid assumptions / projections about the content
>>57552398>effectively at war with America and Western Europethey wish this was reality, because if they were still standing while being at war with the entirety of the Western world then they might be as tough as they love to think they are
>>57548064>only trust CIA and NATO approved OS intelligence sources like Oryx blog which is run by the same people who worked at Bellingcat which is a CIA operationLel, from all the people I've seen using Oryx, he is abut the only one who goes this in depth on Oryx shortcomings and what you should keep in mind if using it as a source.
>>57557554Of course. This is exactly what I would expect you to experience. Your republican party are basically outright treasonous, or treasonous by complacency. From what I can tell you can't get midwesterners to listen to elementary school so how the fuck to foreign powers get them to listen to effluent?
>>57544972>some random ozzie gaymer youtuber has better understanding of strategy and military procurement than entire russian DoD.
>>57544875Probably because he’s dealing with reviewed facts instead of speculation.
>>57544972Psssst you forgot your "literally reads out Wikipedia" bit
>>57545426>The TLDW of that F35 video is that people claiming it's bad are retards and reformers and people should shut the fuck up about it since half the shit is classified to begin with so it's hard to gauge how OP it isWhy hasn't some tard leaked half of the fun shit about F-35s in the War Thunder forums? Are Gayjin actually a CIA psyop?
>>57549027>so is the coming spring offensive guys, that’s totally real and going to happenOh cool, so we're back to >lmao kek where is your kherson counteroffensive? REKT
>>57555557too long. didn't read.
>>57552097To be fair, there's really nothing to discuss either. He doesn't give any hot takes or whatever. Just a general overview of the situation that any reasonable person can agree on.
>>57555928>The world wonders.funny phrasehttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_world_wonders
>>57544857>both sides want it because it's like the unofficial Superbowl of Ukraine and we're seeing what happens when both sides are willing to hold a position at any costBut muh 100:1 K/D ratio!What a retarded move. The diminishing returns from defending that shithole town is going to bite them in the ass. The should have pulled out as soon as the casualties started to increase and preserve equipment and experenced soldiers for the overly hyped spring offensive
>>57566161If the Ukes don't do a Bakhmut in Bakhmut, then they'd just have to do a Bakhmut in Kramatorsk or some other cityThe defender has to choose SOMEWHERE to make their stand
>>57566161>The should have pulled out as soon as the casualties started to increase and preserve equipment and experenced soldiers for the overly hyped spring offensiveDepends on what is causing the increased casualties on the Ukie side.Based on the recent whining from Wagner about not getting enough artillery ammo it might be that most of the increased Ukie losses were mainly due to artillery.In that case retreating might just let the Russians spend that artillery somewhere else and cause just as much or more Ukie losses elsewhere.tl:dr; Not a great place to be but in war someone will inevitably get the shit jobs.
>>57544972It's a fact that Dominions 5 Thrones of Ascension players are the maximum IQ gamers
>>57555557>i don't like thingokay
>>57544914That is the opposite of what he said. It is far from useless, but it doesnt remotely merit the effort either side put into it, in the same way that engaging in a deathmatch in exchange for a pack of ibuprofen probably would have seen you better of braving the headache
Tell me about Perun, why does he make the glavset screech and moan so much?
>>57545313Or there's a literal glavset employee trying to slide the thread.
>>57544765>remember when he made a video about how russia was still a serious threat and all the ukies were ass hurt for a week?Pepperidge farms remembers.
>>57571895>makes fun military analyses about the war in ukraine>uses russia's own sources to provide the most conservative estimates where possible>forced to conclude that russia is retarded every video despite this
>>57555557it's an hour, m8how are you alive, did you only graduate high school or something? Most college lectures are 2-3 hours of way less interesting content. You just get used to it, infodumps are often boring.
>>57571895The concept of backing your argument up with publicly available evidence causes them physical pain
>>57548502>inside jobYou don't need to be a janny to delete your own posts, just threads. There's a time limit but you can do it yourself.
>>57545759You do realize you can win and still lose. The US steam rolled Iraq but no one counts that entire situation as a win. Russia can't even get the steamrolling part done to get to the hard part. How do you think they are going to win? What strategic objectives do you think they are going to meet other than holding some more land? This is why everyone says Russia has already lost; because there is no non-radical outcome to this war that favors Russia. This isn't Georgia, Chechnya, or Crimea.
>>57552097I like it most when he quotes the Kremlin's own RT to prove them wrong. Its great.
I read an article some guy did saying the Ukraine War was just like the Iraq war. I read the article and he mentions Ukraine in one sentence. The rest is about the Iraq War. I read it several times trying to understand what his point was and I came to a conclusion of what I thought he meant>Iraq War was started on flimsy pretence (ignoring that Iraq did have WMD's and this was covered up by the US because of the injuries and the ineptitude of the location of all the WMDs)>Ukraine War was started on flimsy pretence (Muh NATO borders, muh starting a war to avoid a war starting there, demilitarisation, neutrality, biolabs, missile bases, Nazis)But then the rest of it falls apart because the rest doesn't plan out (and I struggle to make a connection)>Iraq War has the US and UK + friends stomp the Iraqi's in, literally over in six months>Phase two begins of old style colonialism where you occupy it and run it yourself>This was a dumb idea and US + UK should have just replaced the leadership and walked away and claimed total victory instead of expanding the war>The reason it was a dumb idea is there were no allies for them to call upon from neighbouring nations and neighbouring nations were happy to help their enemiesThis is what happened but Ukraine, as I said, is different>Russia hasn't defeated the Ukrainian military and moved onto phase twoSo I extrapolated this>Putin was dumb and tried to do an old school colonialism total control grab>He should have just gone for regime change and left after that (the issue is he tried to do just that but shh)>He is struggling now because Ukraine has allies supporting them and Russia doesn't (like USA/UK in Iraq)But the US/UK achieved military objectives and THEN made the decision to hang around for a long time. Russia hasn't even achieved that, so they can't hang around because they've not even beaten the conventional military yet.Is he saying Russia will win and then be fucked because of support to Ukraine?
>>57572162Its a stupid comparison anyway because the US installed a new government in Iraq, left in 2011, and the government is still there; its Afghanistan where the US failed its strategic goals.
>>57572215Replying to myself here to expand my thoughts, but I suppose you could say that Russia taking Crimea (and Donestk and Luhansk via 5th columnists) was more like the Iraq war, and the invasion is more like Aghanistan. The first action had a clear goal of taking Crimea, and secondary goals of taking Luhansk and Donetsk. However, they went too deep with no actual achievable goal in the current invasion, and they're suffering the consequences for that now against a determined opponent.
>>57572122The funny thing is according to /pol/ RT is wrong whenever they insult Russia>Russians officials on RT say they wanted Kiev>NO THEY DIDN'T SHUT UP RT IS BIASED AND PRO WEST
>>57571895To Russians, objective truth is a painful and alien thing to experience. It’s not something they are mentally equiped to deal with.
>>57557554>>he says that the losses are in fact replacable, the russian army just "bloodied" itself to gain experience and will eventually steam roll ukraineHas this ever happened in human history? At any level close to the ass-beating Russia got in 2022?
>>57552097There's two types of people that simp for Putin:>the kind that form their opinion based on emotionaly-laden 10m meme videos>the kind that form their opinion based on 2h-long emotionaly-laden "documentaries"Both feel their identity challenged on a fundamental level by PowerPoint presentations.
>>57544765a guy wanking for over an hour about obvious shit isn't interesting.>>57545403this is the correct way to feel about clickbait, if you don't feel insulted by it then your drooling mobilefag retardation is the reason they had to waterproof phones.>>57545693Perun, stop jacking off, we all know you make these threads yourself.
>>57576841What clickbait?Take your meds, schizo.
>>57576868"End of the Tank? - ATGMs and shoulder fired anti-tank weapons in Ukraine""Ukraine vs Russia - Who wins a war of hardware attrition?""End of the Helicopter? (no) - MANPADS and helicopter losses in Ukraine"stupid provocative questions and statements in your title are the epitome of clickbait. You have brain rot, become an hero.
>>57576841>>57576910Hello tourist - twitter is back that way.
>>57576483>Has this ever happened in human history?Does it matter? He's probably the kind of guy who believes Russia experience only a 5% GDP contraction despite consumer spending, every company and bank, manufacturing and foreign trade experiencing a 40-60% reduction even according to Russia's own (extremely doctored) stats.
>>57554268>work defense procurementNo evidence except for his seat sniffers claiming such.Not that working as a janitor or sysadmin for a government building changes any of that.

>>57577782Anon. It did happen. And there was a reason why it was covered up.The WMDs dated back to the Iran-Iraq war and could be traced back to the American/European sources.
