So much so that Russian's own a BO spray factory in the UK as to who owmns it now is a bit shady, Guys who had it were by all accounts tw@ts who'd think nothing of trashing expensive motors/drink driving etcas a population one of if not the highest instance of under arm perspirant usage in the world.
Pepsico own Walkers, so probably the same potatoes.I thank you . I remembered the headline of the potatoes being shipped to Russia , I believe by Walkers (for crisp making?) but had read nothing since .
Hopefully if they are still knocking about they can be shipped to Ukraine which will be in need of food .
Not something you see written down everyday.
The system certainly follows the old Cold War French doctrine of mobility first, and I imagine that the 6x6 wheeled drive will be quite happy on the average stretch of flat Ukrainian plain. Fast to get into position, fast to deploy and fast to scoot, while also out-ranging the Russian artillery, it should suit current Ukrainian tactics nicely.
I do love a happy ending.
Which is why Ukraine losing really isn't an option for the West, no matter how inconvenient some short term pain in energy shortages will be.This^, is the really worrying aspect. If or when Russia has taken the majority of the south coast incl Odessa it has the world at its knees. Eventually, Africa and the likes will pay what Putin demands and thus feed his war machine further...
I think at one point in the Rhine crossing or similar the entire Corps artillery was called onto a target.Reminds me of British WW2 artillery fire control - any observer can talk to any battery in range in a big flat network, so anything from one gun to a "Yoke Target" concentration of every piece in the AGRA is possible.
What they are doing with the seed spuds was mentioned in the article I quoted upthread .What you do in private is your own business, but what has that got to do with possible Russian nuclear threats, Ukraine, and Western security?
Anyway - back to those seed potatoes, what can anyone do with them? Have farmers been given to nod to increase production? As for the issue of grain, there must be a way for the international community to get it out and prevent mass famine. World Russia accept World Food Programme chartered shups to enter Ukrainian ports and get it?
The other point being that with extended range you have much greater flexibility of siting so they can be optimally placed for camouflage and concealment, good routes in / out, track plan etc.True. It's far easier to maintain than a tracked vehicle - anyone whose ever crossed spanners with a artic or big lorry can look after this. Half hour fam for a competent truckie and away yer go. Bangy bits will require longer obvs. Nowt wrong with frog military engineering.
I'm hoping we pick up the Bofors archer, now there's a beastie.
We did a survival exercise once, in short order, shelter erected, fire place created, wood store sorted, pitch swept and cleaned, fence erected....
As someone said, any fool can be uncomfortable.
And the Army too, somewhere on exercise in Germany, marquee, dining tables, Mess silver.....
