City fight.

 

East Ukrainian militia do it right (tank + APC duet during extermination of Kievan troops in Debaltsevo pocket).

Wrong tactics. Syrians massively use tanks in city fights because of infantry cowardice.

Meanwhile in ISIS. Abrams exploded after Kornet frontal hit.

The initial report said they were Marines, though I suppose this makes it even more humiliating for Dae'esh; they couldn't hold their own against an enlisted man from the cushiest service and a reservist.

we got a friend, an older gentleman, who were an airman during the early 60s.  was stationed at nouasseur air base and was a radio operator.  the thing is, he never actual did anything with radios.  nope, he was part o' the camp's football team and he were a lifeguard.   our friend's military service were spent in casablanca, playing ball and swimming. am not sure why, but we never had considered that the military needs lifeguards.  go figure.

 

HA! Good Fun!

If anything, Airman Stone certainly put his training as a medical technician (medic), football player, and jiu-jitsu practitioner all to good use.

 

Hell, he probably saved the dude's life who got hit in the neck when he immediately applied first aid after subduing the gunman.

BREAKING NEWS! China PLA troops head to North Korea (DPRK) border as North-South tensions mount

The People's Liberation Army has sent troops to China's border with North Korea as escalating tensions on the Korean peninsula have pushed North and South to the brink of possible war.

The Hong Kong-based Oriental Daily reported Saturday that internet users have been uploading photos of what appear to be PLA armored vehicles and tanks passing through the streets of Yanji, the seat of the Yanbian Korean autonomous prefecture in eastern Jilin province. The city, considered a key transport and trade hub between China and the DPRK, is less than 30 kilometers from the 1,400-kilometer border.

The military deployment is believed to reflect how seriously Beijing considers the the current standoff between North and South Korea

Meanwhile in Far East

 

 

Russia and China have started the second phase of joint naval exercises from August 20-28 under the name of “Joint-Sea 2015 (II).”
The exercises will be held in Peter the Great Bay, near the Russian Far Eastern city of Vladivostok and in the Sea of Japan.
The main subject of the exercises will be “working out the joint protection of the sea and joint amphibious operations.” In light of the event there will also be open and vibrant cultural and sports activities to promote exchanges between the military vessels of the two countries.
Taking part in the drills from both sides are 23 warships, 2 submarines, 20 aircraft, 15 aircrafts, 8 helicopters, more than 400 marines and 40 armored vehicles.
This is the fourth joint naval drills between Russia and China. The drills “Joint-Sea 2015” have distinct features such as the fact that these drills will last for 10 days, making them the lengthiest exercises in the past 4 years.

brainwashing propaganda so brainwashed. Quote from source of info

 

Business Life (Delovaya Zhizn) reports on markets, finance, entrepreneurship, finance, and leisure, scarcely an outlet for sensational information. Its innocuously entitled “Increases in Pay for Military in 2015,” however, reveals what appear to be official figures on the number of Russian soldiers killed or made invalids “in eastern Ukraine.”

A translation from 2:03 to 2:30 of the video is provided below:

2:06: ''Бросай!'' - Throw!

2:10: "Ещё раз! Ещё давай!'' - Once again! Do it again!

2:30: "Павлин, павлин, мы выходим" - Pea****, Pea**** [callsign], we are moving out.

Russian fighter pilots are expected to begin arriving in Syria in the coming days, and will fly their Russian air force fighter jets and attack helicopters against ISIS and rebel-aligned targets within the failing state.
According to Western diplomats, a Russian expeditionary force has already arrived in Syria and set up camp in an Assad-controlled airbase. The base is said to be in area surrounding Damascus, and will serve, for all intents and purposes, as a Russian forward operating base.
In the coming weeks thousands of Russian military personnel are set to touch down in Syria, including advisors, instructors, logistics personnel, technical personnel, members of the aerial protection division, and the pilots who will operate the aircraft.

 

Best news evar. Many pro-west terrorists flee from Russia into ISIS for saving their lives .... and Evil Empire came for them now.  Just imagine how hot butthurt they must have from this.  Russia so much trollolo.
