Going between two previously destroyed tanks seemed like the right path? I do not understand military intelligence.

I like how the survivors then run un random directions IN TO THE MINE FIELD.

At that point the concussion wave from the mine probably scrambled their melons temporarily and they didn't have much chance of thinking clearly.

Who are the guys who are in some cover above and to the right of the newly exploded BMP?

I hope the last thing those doods heard before the explosion deafened them was one of their squaddies cutting the cheese.

If it was all antitank mines they'll be fine - you could jump up and down on an antitank mine without detonating it (not actual advice!)

Neither did the BMP crew.

A midday frontal assault over the mine field!  It's the last thing they'll expect.

The guys flying the drone that this view came from? Or at least in contact with the drone pilot?

This is a good example of something that is both technically true and best not to test.

I'm sure the Ukrainians are taking notes and will plant anti-personnel mines in a circle around their anti-tank mines in the future.

I'm more interested in the 20000? Russian troops cut off near Kherson? How's that going to play out I wonder.

Easy, they just got done watching The World According To Garp, and figured that meant the road was just pre-disastered.

I looked that up and... WTF?  Ukraine is preparing to take Kherson.  Russian collaborators are fleeing the city.  This is a city Russia has occupied since February and they're going to lose it.   So much for the mighty Russian army.

Using "ox moron" instead of oxymoron as a descriptor is appropriate in this instance.

Planting antipersonnel mines on your own soil is "not smart". They tend to stick around a mutilate future generations of your children.

Yeah, I need to find out what going on with that group. Apparently, all their commanders realized they were trapped so they fled.

Imagine that, Vladimir wanna-be tzar Putin, your army is such dogshiat your commanders straight up abandon their men on the battlefield, because they're corrupt, gutless vile garbage - just like you.

You know how like in RPGs you come across a dark room in a cave with a lot of bones and dead bodies, and you start being extra cautious because whatever killed them might still be around, whether its a monster or deadly trap?

......yeah.

As every RTS player knows, mines are only good to stop the first wave.  After that, the ex-minefield is the clean way into your opponent's base.

russians are going to become the new Nazis in movies.  Since WWII, it has been pretty much fine to do any horrible thing you want to a Nazi in a movie.  russians were often the bad guys and portrayed as evil, but for true dehumanization you had to go with Nazis.  From now on I expect the most foul and heinous characters will be russians instead.

I believe it's been proven that if you "walk" artillery, mortar, etc fire in certain patterns people will run right into incoming fire while trying to get away. Mind shuts down, instinct takes over and we're wired to do things in certain patterns.

"This is the wrong route to take?"

"No, dummy! It means the safe route is in the middle! Lucky for us those other two came first!"

It isn't the first time.  There was an intercepted phone call a few weeks ago were a soldier was telling his wife that they had to tell their unit's commander at gun point to stay with them.

Yeah, but if a fourth tank or APC comes through there, they'll be golden.

Hard to tell, but it seems like a lot of guys came scrambling out of that thing. How many people is one of those tanks supposed to carry?
