Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
Soooo seems that ‘newly released vidya’ of the T-72 Tank taking on an entire Krainian Klown Kolumn and utterly Killing it “old school” was actually from two months ago.
The Interview with them was just done and released. They didn’t even know about what an uproar their actions had, until Shoigu hisself showed up to give them their awards
Seems that “Laska” – the tank commander, “Lionya” – the tank gunner, and “Monolith” – the driver/mechanic were awarded with the equivalent of the Medal… In the Soviet Days it was “Hero of the Soviet Union”.
After action reports that they were critical in repulsing what turned into a non-stop shit show of a Krainian Assault, and ended up being a game changer. The Interview (which I screen shotted, well, best to sum it up in what “Laska” said:
“We Died Yesterday”
It twigged in my mind, as the translation apps are sometimes a bit wonky, when it hit me:
Talk about dead-nuts on Aye?
Not sure if that’s what he meant, but hey, they faced undeniably bad and overwhelming odds and kicked the ever loving fuck out of at least a heavy Mech Platoon, to include at the final count 2 x T-64M models, and 8 MRAPs…
So… when the time comes, don’t question the “What” of it.
Do what you trained to do.
As we were taught back in the day, the “Rule of The LGOPs” comes into play… that is “Little Groups of Paratroopers”
“After the demise of the best Airborne plan, a most terrifying effect occurs on the battlefield. This effect is known as the rule of the LGOPs. This is, in its purest form, small groups of pissed-off 19 year old American paratroopers. They are well-trained, armed to the teeth and lack serious adult supervision. They collectively remember the Commander’s intent as “March to the sound of the guns and kill anyone who is not dressed like you…” or something like that. Happily they go about the day’s work…..“
Question not the Commander’s Intent after the fact
Just go out and lay as much hurt on the Enemy as Humanly Possible.
THAT therein, lies the way to Victory.
And on that note, we got Gran#1 Again, as she’s starting school on Monday (so soon!)… Kindergarden no less (OMFG I’m old! old! old!) and we won’t see her for a few weeks whilst the transition is ongoing. So More Later
