Bloody hell, Solovyov again and commenting on the use of T54 / 55 and then his cohort chips in about the jokes going about that Russia will be removing T34’s from the pedestals next and he then tells us we should not joke about such things as if needed they can build a division with them!!!!!
Are you kidding me, T34’s lol.

Wagner head says he knows Ukraines three pronged counter attack plans, including heading for Belegrod in Russia.

That is brutal, simply a meat grinder; I did see one Russian trying to help his wounded buddy with a bandage. Does waving a white flag get anywhere? Probably not, for good reason, but the accuracy of the artillery is amazing - I'd give up. On the same thought, do the Ukrainians have any method for Russkies to surrender?

Clicking 'like' does not really seem appropriate, as often I do not 'like' the content of them, but I do appreciate these insightful updates. It's all food for thought and really does make for a clearer understanding in this damn wispy fog.

Thank you again, for at least the last 10 and the next 10 updates.

Sounds good to me! The Chef doesn't exactly seem to have a plan to prevent this though and seems to say that Ukraine will achieve their (his) goal. I guess for a cook it's all meat......

And that's just one cemetery! How many more like that around the country? Surely, reality has to hit the population eventually?

And you’ll huff and you’ll puff and we’ll seize your house clown

He’s not bitter is he, Solovyov is still pissed at losing his villas on Lake Como etc…
Not that he will ever see them again in all probability..

The quote says RPG-7, looks like they're minus the propellant section (the stick out the back of the RPG round), which makes sense, so somewhere around 3kg? Iirc 4.5kg with the stick, which Wikipedia agrees with. The drones look quite compact but a top spec "cine" fpv drone that is a bit bigger can lift 5-6kg worth of camera for a few minutes, so it's not implausible that's they might manage 2-3, albeit they're not going to be doing power loops! See https://www.droneboy.com/fpv-drones/ for some camera examples.
