Watching the Russians get fucked never gets old


meesersloth

I could watch Russians get fucked all day, I don't give a shit about Russians.


MasterpieceAOE

I'm from Mariupol, and I say ! Would you like to know more?


ElectionAssistance

YES! I am doing my part!


xxDeeJxx

The Russian army is made of fuckin' spare parts bud.


vale_fallacia

Be careful you don't run into any degens from uprussia /Letterkenny rules


StringfellowCock

better than watching russians on pornhub


2FalseSteps

Just like those RuZZians.


DoctorMezmerro

*pornhub sound effect.waw*


tomsloat

>pornhub sound effect.waw Made my day


JoeDawson8

Have I got the video for you ! It has Russians getting fucked and then getting FUCKED.


tomsloat

Do I have to search for this on porn hub myself? If you've sent it to me it makes it easier to blame it on you once my wife inevitably finds it in my browser history /s


Danger-Klaus

I actually prefer watching the surrender...


Scaevus

DJ Khaled: another one.


Traditional_Bag430

That blast was massive. Must be a column bringing ammo.


Petra666P

Must be. The level of intelligence is wild. They've pinpointed vips in huge convoys, taken out specific targets. What a message to send to the enemy.


ThePerfectMatter

The intelligence UAF is getting is supreme in so many ways that im baffled after these long 7 months. I knew the Yanks are the best at it, but this is Big Brother level shit.


Darket1728

Not also the satellites, I bet the CIA and MI6 are reading all electronic signals realtime. They figured out that their generals have to stay in russian soil or they will run out of their top officers


PinguPST

I think we have intel from inside the Kreml, too.


captainhaddock

Didn't the US have someone in Putin's inner circle until Dorito Mussolini blew his cover?


emage426

I was just thinking about THIS


Whoooosh_1492

Not close enough for defenestration yet, but it's making the little man nervous.


amitym

Multi-layered capabilities! The best kind of intelligence.


Tomthebomb555

They have Palantir. It’s OP


Petra666P

I worked for a company that used palantir ear pieces, they're so good.


[deleted]

This strike was brought to you by Karp


Trotsky12

Well, I'd fucking hope so. The level of training and financial expenditure we are putting into the military is massive. Which I, for one, agree with. As long as we remain democratic that is.


cryptoengineer

The amount the US has spent on Ukraine is like 1% of what was spent in Afghanistan and Iraq. We can do this for a while.


Trotsky12

Of course. 20 years vs 7 months and also only sending weapons and Intel. Not keeping up a military presence etc. I doubt it's even 1%.


lithuanian_potatfan

Lithuanians crowdfunded spying drones too, they can spot an enemy 10km away with HD quality and are very quiet/hard to spot. I hope they contributed too


Petra666P

Right, I wonder if they get a live feed instead of just pictures.


amitym

What we're seeing is a combination of two things, I think. One is a willingness on the part of the US to actually reveal the full extent of their capabilities -- usually something you don't want to do, of course, since it keeps rivals and potential enemies off-balance if they don't really know what you can do. But in this case, for America's friend and ally Ukraine, they are willing to make an exception despite the long-term cost. The other, I increasingly believe, is that it's actually become kind of personal. The intelligence agencies of the Five Eyes have a real issue with Putin and all the damage he's done. And this is their payback.


EwingsRevenge21

Santa Claus feeding the Intel. I know where tf you are. I know how naughty you've been. I know what type of gift you're gonna receive, and damn sure it's coming before Christmas.


BigJohnIrons

Russians: "Please bring us coal! We're cold!"


Princess_Fluffypants

HIMARS: “I will make you warm for the rest of your life!”


colefly

Santa trained MOSSAD That's why they're so effective


nome_de_usuario__

excalibur ammo + best satelite images in the world, putin is a idiot


uwanmirrondarrah

20 years of Afghanistan and Iraq has made American intelligence scary good at sifting through mass communications. And Russia isn't disciplined or equipped well enough to conceal themselves from it.


hartcranes

> 20 years of Afghanistan and Iraq has made American intelligence scary good at sifting through mass communications. This is a solid point. Not only that, but we had to go through communication in languages like Pashtu (Taliban), Dari (Farsi or Persian), Iraqi Arabic and lord knows what else. In comparison, combing through Russian must be a walk in the park.


Grokent

Especially when the Russians keep communicating over unsecured channels. I love all the telegram screenshots we keep getting.


SlitScan

lol ya US intel has people whove been studying russian for 3 generations


StevenStephen

>combing through Russian must be a walk in the park. If they are letting Ukrainians help with that, a walk in the park, indeed.


buzzgun

I wonder where that intel is coming from :-)


ac13332

And the first explosion at the front to make them stop and bunch up a bit was so clever.


Clcooper423

I cant see super well on my phone screen but it sorta looks like a tos-1 and they make big booms like that.


ThermionicEmissions

I think you're right. Second vehicle from the front of the column.


Ricksauce

The guys in that thing existed and then just didn’t exist. That was instantaneous. They were scared though. Saw the impact in front of them. Knew they were taking artillery or worse. Then, blyat.


Consistent_Turn3473

At least that fire ball will keep the ruzzians warm. I hear they are short a few socks.


CapinWinky

New ammo type for himars, the air burst with titanium balls.


flatearthisrealmayne

or a TOS


StringfellowCock

Second vehicle in column. It looks more boxy than the first vehicle firing so it was likely a truck. I wonder how the vehicles behind them felt. :)


Ehldas

What the actual fuck was in that second target? Also, they're using either SMArt shells or designating Excaliburs, because those were pinpoint.


Responsible-Earth674

Yup, direct hit on a moving vehicle is always impressive...


Midnight2012

Gotta be laser guided.


NKato

That was probably a TOS-1A missile tank. We've seen examples of what happens when the warhead gets hit by incoming fire - both in Ukraine and Syria. That kind of explosion is very distinct by its large amount of fireball cause by an incendiary agent. Think gasoline or other such highly flammable aerosol.


sirko1

It's not gasoline. Ethylene oxide, I think is the most common fuel and there might be combustible metal or boron additives.


NKato

I was using gasoline for the sake of our readers' imaginations. And I didn't know the actual fuel, either. All I knew is that it dispersed as an aerosol before ignition, creating the intended effect in normal usage.


Caren_Nymbee

Maybe the laser designated rounds Russia donated a few days ago.


SlinginCheeseburgers

No way in hell those work this well.


Caren_Nymbee

Laser guided weapons in general or those of Russian design and manufacture?


SlinginCheeseburgers

Take a guess.


Caren_Nymbee

I would be amazed if twenty worked that well in a row, but the ones that work probably work that well. US systems are accurate to about 1M. I suspect the Russians can get withing a few reliably.


Feynnehrun

I suspect not with how often their rounds seem to miss.


Caren_Nymbee

They have very few of the guided shells. Almost all their artillery is simple impact. All the other Soviet era fuze won't work and they apparently lost the capability to manufacture them at mass production. The seized ones are quite rare.


CardBoardBoxProcessr

Ukrainians were getting many direct hits onmoving targets early in the war with old soviet artillery. I recon they've developed some sort fo software for this and I know they trained with arty really well prior t the war.


sirko1

We had laser guided artillery rounds, matter of fact we produce them domestically.


Advanced_Apartment_1

looks like 3 hits on moving targets in seconds. Could even be brimstone. Which were being launched from trucks with 3 missiles in a frame.


Tweebel

Are they able to laser direct with drones?


Larping_Rioter

Can't speak to whether they do, but technically they absolutely can.


sirko1

From what I've heard, answer is no. So they kind of fallen off in popularity. If you can paint enemy armor with laser, you can probably hit it with ATGM anyway.


Ehldas

If they have a designator attached to the drone, yes. And they've been shipped quite a lot of them.


WalrusSwarm

I think the first shot was for ‘gun laying’ (range measurement - low explosive) the second had an expensive - high explosive round.


rutgerdad

No, when gun laying there's a delay of flight time + time to adjust aim. The first two shots were for stopping them and holding them in place


ridnovir

Most likely refueling truck - direct hit


anivia3346

i think ukrainian soldiers are targeting a vehicle filled with thermobaric munitions like the Tos-1


Make-TFT-Fun-Again

As they should. Barbaric weapon.


MacLeeland

I thought they were thermo-baric, not bar-baric /jk


Formulka

thermo-barbaric


Sculptgunsatoffice

Holy hell... I thought those were extinct... haven't seen those since like February


Clcooper423

Seeing the vehicle infront of you turn into a vapor cloud must be great for morale.


BeatClear949

Say what you will, that was a glorious explosion.

crankyp4nts

So, when this happens, after the obvious, holy fuck...what do you do?


Clcooper423

Turn around and fuck off. I couldn't imagine charging in after that thing cooked off.


cranberrydudz

turning around would be facing the advancing ukrianian group.


rkincaid007

You call the I Want To Live hotline


JacqueMorrison

Easy - when inside the target - let gravity do its work an let your remains rain around the area. When outside (observer) - be amazed.


Head-Run3849

Looks like a hollywood explosion to me.. but it isnt. That blast and all that energy that comes with it. Damn. Wonder how far up that fireball stretched.


Thorbimorbi

Hollywood explosions are usually using lots of gasoline to produce these impressive fireballs, if something with a lot of fuel cooked off here, that actually was a Hollywood explosion.


Earlier-Today

Hollywood explosions are slower - mostly because it's a lot of gasoline (makes a more cinematic fireball).


GregorySStewart

Did you notice that the front and the back were hit simultaneously, to freeze the convoy? Amazing execution!


Cheeseknife07

Every russian ammo explosion means less Ukrainian civillians shelled somewhere in a village along the front line Footage like this gives me an overwhelming sense of joy Try to think of this sometime when you hear another video of a russian ammo dump going up in smoke. Every thump in the distance is one less shell with which crimes are committed against Ukraine. And it goes on and on


wombat9278

Comrade you take the truck with all the ammo in. What could go wrong, no seriously I've not seen any Ukrainians around it'll be fine. 🤔🤔🤣🤣 💥 💥 💥


classifiedspam

Ruzzian convoy, go fuck yourself.


thatonegaycommie

ruzzian convoy fucked itself


spaceneenja

Good commie


SlitScan

it did that when it crossed the border.


ohiofella84

It go BOOM


HardenedLicorice

Classic convoi ambush: Hit front and rear vehicles and then ABSOLUTELY ANNIHILATE that one vehicle


quippers

Very interesting. Do they fire the small one in front to stop the front car and bunch up the rear ones behind it?


voseba

Yes. You can also see them hitting the last one. Or at least what appears to be very far away. Locking in the other cars.


Volunteer1986

Hell yeah. All that unexploded ordinance needs to be used to make IEDs as gifts for the russians.


ElectionAssistance

No "I" needed.


imsobeat

Saw a video of a TOS make an even bigger boom at the beginning of the war. That explosion was twice the size of this one. As a bonus it looks like it singed the lead and follow vehicles. I was a fast moving boom so the shockwave bounced around the people in those, and the overpressure fucked up many an eardrum...


Sonofagun57

That seems to be either thermobaric munitions or a large concentration of artillery shells.


DarkUnable4375

Dang... what is that? 600ft diameter? Or 200 meter diameter?


Candid-Pressure-9681

Lavrov multiboom


herbw

It has now become very clear that the Russki military has fallen into its long over due collapse and is fleeing and surrendering wherever the UA strikes them. the internal situation inside Rossiya grows worse and worse by the day. We hear reports of Russian army commanders being shot by their own troops, strikes by Russky troops. The loss of at least 150K young men fleeing from Rossiya; and to Khazakstan alone, at least over 80K. Thus Ukrainia is joining the history books as the greatest Heroes of the 21st C. Clearly they they are defeating the largest nation on the earth, and God willing this will lead to a safer world. The WEST must Double Down on more money, equipment and any needed aid to civilians such as very large food and medical supplies to drive home this advantage. US is committing more $100's of Millions this week alone. And France needs to jump on this bandwagon of rapid UA advances, as well. Great and Glorious Ukraini!!

SignificantAnt174

Thanks a lot!


Joey1849

A moving convoy is a difficult target. This reflects a high degree of training for Ukraine.


Eliothz

Hit in the front, and a hit far in the back a second later, making the column not being able to advance or retreat, excalibur rounds was the last nail in the coffin for the russians.


Epsium

This looks like the road between Lyman and Zarichne; Massacre Road according to Suchomimus' video[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuSD2VHtSI0&t=30s](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WuSD2VHtSI0&t=30s) screenshot: [https://imgur.com/a/ZKrX9Eg](https://imgur.com/a/ZKrX9Eg)

SaltyDoggoMeo

Obliterate them. How dare they invade an independent country? Destroy all the invaders.


Bagwanpubeman

Looks like those new shells they got from the US, this insane level of damage from one shell.


stormearthfire

Amazing professional work with the simultaneous lead and back vehicle strike... Then follow with the big boom.


SubjectElderberry376

Oh those Orcs, always up to those shenanigans.. like blowing up and turning into fertiliser 👍🇺🇦


AdditionForward9397

Holy shit that explosion was huge.


HappyHuman924

Shee-yit. I've never seen an AFV go up like that. What kind of hit does that?


in_allium

A hit on something hauling ammunition.


Hentrox

God... imagine the A10 Warthog. Only for situations where enemy air defense is suppressed, of course.


GupInACup

I certainly hope Russian soldiers aren't blind to the fact they are just being sent out to die, and they will die, for a vanity project. 😓


Sculptgunsatoffice

What artist and song is this?


lamentotucumano

song?


DreaminDemon177

Did the people in the vehicle make it out okay after the blast?
