ATGM vs rental box truck, the future is weird.


OttodontCarius

RPG, not ATGM.


UhhmericanJoe

Hopefully. That vehicle was not worth an expensive ATGM missile, unless it had like FSB or a senior officer inside.


IllPaleontologist722

Atgms are used against infantry and toyota trucks. They are not all that expensive.


TheGoldenTNT

In comparison to what everything else costs… not that expensive.


kosman123

Hopefully, but FSB are probably operating in occupied territories like Kherson dealing with partisans and not on the front lines. But im not an expert so who knows


ClassicSpeed244

it looked like it had some heft to it maybe it was a tandem round


TheMalcore

AT~~G~~M more likely.


zeelt

Likely not a missile either, depending on if you use the military or generic definition of missile.


Korostenets

It's literally point blank, nobody is going to set up an ATGM to take out a van right in front of them. It's just some rpg

MilesLongthe3rd

Are they still sending in separatist conscripts in civilian vehicles like in Mariupol? It was insane how many badly equipped conscripts died in that battle.


progrethth

Ukraine also makes quite heavy use of civilian vehicles. But, yeah, I expected Russia to supply their separatists better.


FudginatorDeluxe

difference is Ukraine repaints them green to distinguish them from civilian cars.


kosman123

Well paint is too expensive for russia so they just puts a "z" on them


mbattagl

Likely yes, there's been an uptick in videos with separatists using convoys of these civilian vehicles. Plus it's been confirmed that what remains of the contract soldiers in the East (VDV, regular, and Wagner) are being sent from conflict point to conflict point to aid in breakthroughs in Popasna, Zolote, and Severodonetsk. So they're getting the lion's share of the resources fighting for kilometers per day while the UA in the South is making considerable gains retaking parts of Kherson Oblast.


notjussomeguy

Not that I’m calling bs but confirmed how and by who?


AllProgressIsGood

im pretty sure its more than just the sepratists at this point


BubiBalboa

I'm always surprised that unguided rockets actually fly straight. lol I have seen it often enough by now that I shouldn't be but that feeling is still there *every time*.

JulianMarcello

I’ve been out of the loop over the past month or two - How’s the war going in Ukraine? Is this likely to drag on for years?


AllProgressIsGood

Ukraine is doing well in the north/south. east losing ground All these changes are very slow.


Memerang344

So, it’s going. Russia is making advances but very very slowly. The Russians are trying to encircle the Ukrainians in a salient, so far they have been breaking through but it’s slow. Ukrainians are bravely fighting on in Severdonetsk, however with a lot of bridges destroyed it’s going to be extremely difficult to pull them back.


Hjalpmi_

Just a note: if your breakthrough is slow, like six weeks slow, it's not a breakthrough.


A_Vandalay

If it’s fast enough to encircle the enemy then it counts


Memerang344

There was a breakthrough today I’m pretty sure. The Russians encircled a bunch of troops in the south of the salient


Doc-Gl0ck

Russian side claims thousands encircled in two villages. Meanwhile they also posted a footage of UAF beginning to evacuate from there since last friday. Ukrainian blogger claimed those were evacuated on weekend. Ukrainian MOD told about attempt of encirclement. I guess we'll see soon who lied.


Mercbeast

Both can be true. The encirclement at Zolote might only be 800, or it might be 2000, but even if that number were encircled, many more could have been withdrawn. I believe the risk involved in these sort of retrograde operations, is the enemy realizing you're pulling out. Basically you want to maintain a small force, but a force big enough to give the impression that it is business as usual. Then, you yoink the bulk of your forces out. If there was an encirclement, and I tend to think there was, it's likely that the forces doing the rear guard action got cut off while the bulk of the forces slipped away. I say this because once the cat was out of the bag, the entire thing happened rather quickly. Within hours most of the villages that facilitated closing this area off were taken, and, I'm pretty sure there are sources on the Russian and Ukrainian side saying there is ongoing fighting in Zolote(s) I hope I spelled that right.


zveroshka

He is talking about Sverdonetsk where the Russian advance started on May 6th. So a little over two weeks now and they are probably on the verge of capturing that area in the next week or so unless something changes on the ground. It's as close to a breakthrough as is going to happen at this stage. However, that's not to say that Russia isn't paying dearly for every inch they take.


Hjalpmi_

May 6 to June 24 is not 2 weeks, buddy. It's even longer than 6 weeks. I repeat, if your breakthrough is taking 6 weeks to almost capture a bunch of strongpoints, it's not a breakthrough.


zveroshka

Sorry meant June 6th, not May.


JulianMarcello

Thank you for giving me the update. Google was useless in this case. Not sure why I am getting downvoted for wanting to know more.


jase213

Check out livemap it's not 100% accurate because it only updates the map when it's confirmed but it gives a good idea


JulianMarcello

Perfect. Thank you!


KiwiThunda

Ukraine also appears to be successfully advancing in the south towards Kherson. Mariupol is fully captured. Snake island resembles the surface of the moon. Ukraine has just recently acquired many long ranged accurate NATO artillery so we're expecting the scales to start tipping in next 2-3 weeks


kosman123

True on the tipping scales, but I don't expect massive ukranian counter-offensives. Their best strategy they have been using is space-for-time and attritioning the russians. Honestly in my opinion thats the best strategy they can use, since its costing the russians alot in terms of equipment and money. But Im just a dumbass on the internet with no military background so don't take my predictions seriously


progrethth

It is going slowly where both sides are taking heavy losses and Russia are making small gains in Luansk Oblast while all other fronts barely move at all with some small probing offensives by both sides. Both sides seem to spend a lot of resources on the battle of Severdonetsk and hopefully Ukraine is able to use their defender's advantage despite having much less artillery. But we do not have good numbers of losses for either side as far as I know. As for if the war will drag on? Probably, but it is very hard to say since it depends on morale of both sides and how well both sides will be supplied (i.e. how fast will the west send equipment, how much equipment has Russia stockpiled, how many men can Russia actually recruit and send to the front).


JulianMarcello

Thank you- I appreciate you taking the time to catch me up


kosman123

I don't think its a matter of how many soldiers can russia recruit, but how many it can equip. Since we've seen that alot of their equipment is outdated and in short supply like scopes and NVG's, not to mention the cold war era armored vehicles


trashacc-WT

Since Zolote has fallen, there might be a quick encirclement of the twin towns in the salient.


H2OZdrone

Well shit, someone hit the ice cream truck

fuknpikey

This is as lame as the Chechen videos. It's disingenuous to say otherwise.


SaiyanPhoenix

Damn, getting to the point they’re showing off blowing up a sprinter van? What happened to all the Bayaraktar vids lol


sagakino

The bayraktar videos are still being posted if you care to look for them, the russians use civilian vans just like they use military ones, it truly makes no difference if it's colored green or not. It's one less vehicle they can use for transport.


Shitspear

Feel free to link them since I havent seen one for a long time except for scouting purposes. Their own airforce even said they are rather useless right now


sagakino

The russians have established a lot of anti-air vehicles anywhere they operate so flying a bayraktar above them to strike is almost impossible, so their purpose has changed. The last Bayraktar video is [This one](https://www.reddit.com/r/CombatFootage/comments/ve6r77/uaf_strike_a_tugboat_black_sea_fleet_of_the/).


SaiyanPhoenix

*gasps* the badasses killed a tugboat!


Korostenets

What's even more badass is loosing ships to a country with no navy


SaiyanPhoenix

Yeah at least by name on this sub the newest one was 4 days ago, the 2nd newest one is 21 days ago.


SledgeH4mmer

There's actually been a pretty significant drop in the number of russian military vehicles getting destroyed. Russia doesn't have anywhere near as many military vehicles as they used to. So there are far fewer for Ukraine to blow up.


SaiyanPhoenix

Jesus, you are reaching unfathomable levels of copium


SledgeH4mmer

LOL! That analysis was from Philips P. OBrien. He's a professor of strategic studies and writes books on war. He's been following this conflict pretty closely and presented data that supported that point a few weeks back. "unfathomable levels of copium" LOL!!!!!! It's like you're talking to yourself!


SaiyanPhoenix

Ah yes, the same experts who said Russia was out of missiles and T72 and T80s 3 months ago…


SledgeH4mmer

Actually, tons of experts have been making that observation because there's truth to it.


zveroshka

Some truth to something does not mean it is the truth. If Russia was out of tanks and everything else that is claimed, they wouldn't be advancing, slowly as they are.


SledgeH4mmer

Noboby is saying they're "out of tanks." That was just a strawman argument from the previous commentor. The RAF simply have a lot less tanks then before. Hence there are a lot less to destroy.


zveroshka

I mean okay, but linking that directly to why there was a huge drop in videos is idiotic.


Mercbeast

I bet he predicted Russia would win inside of a week too. The likely change in the number of ambushes on Russian vehicles, probably has more to do with the change in Russian tactics. They opened the war with a Thunder Runesque fail to Kyiv. They were strung out along a single MSR, their logistics failed, basically the entire thing was a cluster fuck. They then basically pulled the plug on rapid manuever warfare, and settled into the tried and true Soviet style of warfare for a limited scale(we can say "on a budget"). That is massive artillery to pound every point of resistence, and then to move infantry in once the area looks to be neutralized. Don't get me wrong, Soviet->Russian military doctrine IS about manuever warfare, but it's like comparing German Schwerpunkt to Soviet Deep Battle. Schwerpunkt can work with large, or small forces. Soviet Deep Battle only works like a bulldozer. Soviet and Russian forces have never been tactically nimble. They've been deliberate. If Russia isn't totally mobilized, and leveraging millions of troops along a front, they can't really do the whole break through and exploit thing. So they've resorted what they can do. Limited scale offensives behind massive artillery superiority. In practical terms this means they are taking less risks with their manuever elements. So, sure, they've lost a few hundred tanks at minimum, but they are also not yeeting them down highways into the teeth of waiting ATGM squads either.


zveroshka

I mean Russia certainly has fewer tanks and IFVs than they started with. But they probably still number in the hundreds. I think the lack of videos is due to several factors, the most prominent of which is that the battles are now mostly artillery exchanges rather than close direct engagements. Particularly the type necessary to produce videos.

[удалено]


sagakino

The color of the truck doesn't matter, they use civilian vehicles for transport. It doesn't need to be green to be a military vehicle.


GMC2221

That's not what i am saying.


sagakino

That's exactly what you're saying, but newsflash, not every vehicle used by either military is a military-built vehicle.


zveroshka

Honestly it is impossible to know. But this isn't released by the government or something either. It's just some soldiers releasing a video of something they did. How you want to view it is entirely up to you.


Mercbeast

For all we know, this is classic "deny the enemy". Sprinter style van outside their strong point, they may be leaving soon. They may be unable to utilize it themselves. So they put an RPG through the engine block. Now Russians can't appropriate a sweet ass van.


MrStormz

Destroys Russian, nah man they just Destroyed some random lorry and wasted their shot


sagakino

That van is worth more than an RPG rocket, and it's a van used for transport by separatists, not just any random van.


Psychological_Ad8570

Yeah, there is a huge Z sign on it. I can see it (not).


sagakino

There is a symbol in the hood


Psychological_Ad8570

Do you know what sarcasm is?


sagakino

Sarcasm isn’t often visible in text, therefore you kind of have to write /s for people to tell you’re being sarcastic.


jimjonesz_2233

Rocket vs civilian van, what a surprise the thing is blown to shit. I get it may be a “Russian vehicle” but cmon man no one wants to see this, we want to see BTR’s, BMP’s and T-series tanks. Then again whatever keeps the morale up I suppose, last thing I read they were almost completely encircled


AllProgressIsGood

russia is running out of vehicles so be prepared to see more cars getting wrecked


sagakino

Probably refrain from reading russian news lmao, the Ukrainians in severodonetsk arent encircled.


jimjonesz_2233

If I recall correctly it was a Ukrainian source, “By 14 June 2022, Ukrainian sources acknowledged that Russia gained control of 80% of the city and cut off all escape routes.[4][21]” Those 2 numbers are the sources on the [Wikipedia page for the battle.](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Sievierodonetsk_(2022))


sagakino

“Cut off escape routes” as in they destroyed the bridges connecting lysichansk to severodonetsk, making any vehicle crossing impossible. But foot traffic can still cross and they use boats to resupply and bring troops in and out. “Surrounded” would imply that the Russians are on all sides and they are completely cut off, which is not the situation in severodonetsk as of now.


jimjonesz_2233

Oh okay I didn’t know that, thanks for correcting me


Erik_21

the good ending


PipocaGuY

Indian tanks?


jimjonesz_2233

T series, I meant like T-72, T-62, T-80, T-90, etc.


Serious_Function4296

Of course, I will believe the inscriptions and will not assume that the vehicle belongs to some local poor fellow, a citizen of Ukraine living nearby. After all, there is no reason to doubt ...


Dag_the_Angriest1

Ah yes, Ukrainian military is known to waste anti tank ammo on random civilian vehicles in highly contested urban warfare zones


Psychological_Ad8570

Yes, they are.


VendettaAOF

Fucking when?


Dag_the_Angriest1

what's up with random russian accounts with stupid names(potato\_sack6289 or dick\_sucker1488 etc) that are 1 year old?


thorkun

I believe it's random names that reddit suggests when you create account, and if you're a troll and create 10 accounts per week your name doesn't really matter so.


Dag_the_Angriest1

Ah, makes sense then


adel2756

It's not the first time the invaders used a [stolen civilian vehicle for their offenses](https://imgur.com/a/t8a9NKC)


MilesLongthe3rd

They sent in conscripts to Mariupol in similar vans. There were some really terrible videos of how those poor bastards were decimated by the Ukrainian marines. Even while the Ukrainians were running out of everything those guys were no match for them. So it is very possible the Russians send in conscripts again to get killed before they move in.


Serious_Function4296

If one white van is guilty of something before someone, this is not a reason to arrange a genocide of all white vans. The video does not allow to establish the degree of it's guilt and belonging to one of the warring parties.


adel2756

there is good reason to assume that a 10k$usd+ missile being fired at a van by an army that generally tries to be very scarce with their limited resources isn't trying to fuck up some random civilian's day out of spite, they've got bigger priorities in mind :D


r0w33

But you're happy to assume that it was a civilian vehicle being attacked for no reason?


AllProgressIsGood

yeah Ukrainians would hurt their own for no reason... what a dumb thought

Solottica

Hiding behind civilians in an apartment building, what a cunt.


44fps

Literally all civilians in Severodonetsk have either evacuated, taken shelter at Azot factory or died due to the amount of artillery used by RF forces during the siege.


Psychological_Ad8570

Yeah. Shelter. They traded hostages for food, in Azovsteel. What will happen in Azot, I wonder.


44fps

Ukraine's authorities have been asking all civilians in Luhansk oblast to evacuate for over two monthes now. Even before Russian forces were close to Severodonetsk. Everyone who stayed is either waiting for RF to win the war or naive enough to believe that their house would be left untouched. Nobody forced them to remain in the war zone. So now, when the entire town is almost destroyed, they had to go to the only place where you can survive constant artillery strikes - the Azot factory. As it was in Azovsteel. And they won't be traded for food - Severodonetsk is not encircled and maintains supply lines with Lysychansk.


Solottica

Lies


progrethth

Is what you are spreading. Ukraine has worked hard at evacuating everyone not refusing to do so. This is not Mariupol where the civilians were not evacuated. The civilians of Severodonetsk have had plenty of time to leave the city.
