Big Hat War continues, NORKS still undefeated!

"I hear that the general is coming, and that he is really mad."
"Oh, good, now we will finally find out if there really is a sniper in those woods. Not knowing for sure has been driving me nuts."

Due to the same level of competence the Russians have shown throughout the entirety of this invasion.

Article claims he was killed by an artillery barrage. Considering the vaunted precision of the Russian Army, I wonder whose it was.

I assume Hell for Putinists is just Russia circa 1996.

Probably because Putin screamed something like 'get your ass down to the front lines and fix this or I will kill you personally!'

I'm starting to think that anyone who has said something criticizing Putin has been sent to the front line, and this is the way of cleaning house.

This is great. I really mean that. But, that figure of 14k Russians killed is dubious. US intelligence just issued an estimate of 7k. Still extremely high for a month of fighting, but also more realistic.

ktang: A 3-star this time. Why was this 3-star general within enemy weapons range?!?!


That was my thought. Why were five generals actually in Ukraine to begin with? There's quite good communications technology these days, generals really oughtn't be on the battlefield at all.
 
2022-03-19 3:30:15 PM  
So, does anyone know what the Lost General Coup Number is? We clearly know it is not 4. Will it be 5 generals killed before they take out Putin? 6? 7? Is Vegas giving odds?

I suspect that a lot of the Russian 'casualties' are actually deserters in one way or another (see the earlier thread about leg wounds), and I salute any Russian soldiers who fark off out of their bullshiat army and this bullshiat war.

Putin is probably putting his generals in harm's way on purpose.

And the FSB is ratting out their positions.
 
2022-03-19 3:31:39 PM  
How much of all these generals getting axed off is incompetence and how much is the generals literally seeing death as a better alternative to going back to Putin?

Russian army Colonels in Ukraine to their Minister of Defense: No thanks to your proposal to promote me, I'd like to stay un-snipered. Find some REMF Colonel to promote to command my division and get offered up as sniper bait.

Yes, but Russia's secure communications requires 3G, or so the reports go.

And Ukraine either shut off 3G, or Russia accidentally took it out, depending on the reports.

/moral: don't use communications that rely on your enemy's infrastructure

Olympic Trolling Judge: So hey, new job opening.  Who says there's no opportunity for advancement in the Russian Army?


Apparently he got blown up with a bunch of his staff. Russia's losing a fair bit of their command.
They're usually all about commands coming from on high and blindly following but the on high but is pretty rapidly disappearing.
Apparently changing the command culture and giving soldiers more autonomy like you see in western armies is a big part of what's making Ukrainians do so much better than expected. Or at least that's what some of the folks who were training them are saying
 
2022-03-19 3:34:00 PM  
Desperate Russian troops have been begging Ukrainians for food.

Well, they keep supplying them with fresh meat

Looks like long pig is on the menu comrade

Perhaps a little of both , and another factor that I wont mention on a public forum.
Minor threadjack - I am still trying to get a reply about that band from the Basque region that might have the answer to your language question, but Grand Performances is a small operation. And their online calender doesnt go back that far. I will try again on Monday .

Could be Putin's version of sending them "to Siberia".

I'm not ruling out suicide by enemy fire. Perhaps his only way out.

Yeah, if they are killed in action maybe their families will get a pension instead of gulag.

But remember that according to Republicans Ukraine is on the verge of collapsing, Russian troops have taken most of the cities, the Ukrainian military is enslaving their fleeing populace to suicide themselves against the Russians, and they really should lay back and let Putin violate them in every orifice because he's their rightful ruler.

if 25% of his generals are actually dead, the Ukrainians either have ridiculously accurate intel or they've killed a true shiatload of Russians

It might not be 'how many' as it would be 'whom' - which well-known and respected General goes down to some Ukranian babushka with a Moisin-Nagant and whose loss galvanizes the other generals?
