As I alluded to last night, USA 🇺🇸 is now leaning towards sending longer range ATACMS to Ukraine. If they don't receive money from Congress to send their own soon, they'll ask allies (Germany, Romania, Poland) to send theirs and the USA will backfill what they send.

So why now, after stalling for as long as they have? The articles won't note this, but here is the reality. Lockheed Martin has now delivered and continues to deliver, brand new PrSM's to the U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps. The precision strike missile is fully replacing ATACMs, gradually making them obsolete over the coming years.

USA can likely send 100-200 ATACMs / ATAMs in 2024, with further units becoming increasingly available as PrSM's come online.

What is the major difference between the two weapon systems?

PrSM has extended range, lethality (payload and accuracy), travels on a harder path to intercept, etc.

Lockheed Martin will continue a full production line of the most modern M57 ATACM variant for export customers. Numerous allies in Europe, Australia and the Middle East want the long range ballistic missiles and USA isn't selling PrSM to foreign buyers yet. Lockheed Martin produces roughly 500 M57 ATACMs per year and sells them to foreign buyers at a cost of approximately $1.5 million usd per unit.

Navalny refering to Muslims as cockroaches. The entire Russian political spectrum is rotten and racist to the core.


BTW the Russian ruling class have always looked at Muslims as cockroaches. Muslim don't waste your time and energy shilling for these shitheads. Don't be their useful idiots. While you waste your time and energy propagandising for these people, off camera they see you all as subhuman. You want to propagandise for someone, you want to defend someone, use your energy defending Turkey. If Turks improve their position its inevitable it will improve the entire Muslim condition.

Fun fact which every Western liberal forgets about Navalny.

He supported the Russian invasion of Chechnya and Georgia.

His excuse about Syria was all wish washy bullcrap.

Lol Russia is only producing 200'ish NEW MBTs per year, most of which are T-90M and T-72B3. Meanwhile, they are losing 150-250 MBTs per month. The remainder of their "production" comes from them pillaging their Soviet stockpile, which is disappearing quickly, to refurbish tanks for combat.

Russia is producing armor at a substantial deficit to the rate at which they are losing it. They're facing a very similar problem with BMP, IFVs. While they have more than enough systems to continue for a while 12-18 months from now they're going to be running low and increasingly relying on T-62, T-55 and MT-LB death traps, removed from storage.

Where do you think Russia will step foot next guys ?

After gaining control of Avdiivka, the Russians are now targeting Kramatorsk, Slavyansk and Chasiv Yar, three of the four remaining fortifications intended to delay the Russian advance. Over the last few hours, both cities have been heavily attacked by MLRS, ballistic missiles, drones, and Kh-22 cruise missiles launched by strategic bombers.

The Russians are attempting to target areas where Ukrainians have reserves and are regrouping. The Ukrainian army fighting in this region hasn't rotated for three months, and most of the soldiers are exhausted. Even in these conditions, the Ukrainians will stand and offer solid resistance due to the fortifications, but the situation is expected to be even more intense than it was months ago, especially considering the increased activity of the Russian air force over the front due to the lack of anti-aircraft defenses from Ukrainian units. Why is the situation so serious for the Ukrainian army at this stage of the war? The entire front is facing numerous shortages, and the Russians are increasing the pressure

. The question is not if the Russians will open new fronts, but when they will do so. Discussing peace at this moment isn't easy. Putin has an advantage, and I don't see anyone able to prevent Ukraine from being divided. Specifically regarding peace, Putin will also demand full demilitarization of Ukraine. I don't see him winning a war and allowing NATO troops on this part of the border. The West still has seized reserves, sanctions, and a few other things to bring to the negotiating table with Putin, but a divided Ukraine and demilitarization, at least for me, seem to be unavoidable terms. The West won't accept a defeat in Ukraine, and the more time that passes, the fewer territories the Ukrainians can retain. Yes, it's a humiliation for 40 countries to be defeated, but the sooner they negotiate, the more land the Ukrainians can keep.

Footage of a Ukrainian Banshee Jet-80 kamikaze jet drone, manufactured in Great Britain, intercepted and landed by Russian electronic warfare units. The Banshee Jet-80 jet drone is manufactured by Qinetic and is used by the UK Navy as an aerial target. The drone's range exceeds 100 km, the maximum speed is 720 km/h, the drone can stay in the air for up to 45 minutes and rise to a height of up to 7500 meters. Reportedly, upon inspection of the drone, 7 kilograms of explosives were found. As a result of decoding the flight mission of the Banshee Jet-80 drone, it turned out that the drone was supposed to circle over the Novoazovsky region and hit an object in Mariupol, approaching the target from the Taganrog Bay.
