    Not really familiar with that one either but I think it's what the Ukrainians called Faggot. Don't know the difference between that one and what they called Thor on my first rotation. It's wire controlled if we are talking about the same weapon. From what I saw the Ukrainians missed a house on...

    Hrmf! Gubbe! I'm dating girls in your age, young man. ;-) Actually didn't like the leaves that much. I got in a bad mindset going on leave. Just spent money and got drunk in Kiev which felt like they didn't really care about the war. A little bit like Sweden :-) . Think almost everyone wanted...

    I understand your concerns. Russia has really succeeded in getting western media to focus on the right wing stuff. Azov and a couple of other batallions are right wing. Most of the guys serving in them are not. Now it's all about fighting together regardless of political views. I bet some of the...

    I let Carolus answer the weapon section. I'm not really good at that. Civilian at heart! ;-) Think Novorossiya means what Putin decides it will mean. If he wants to take the Baltic it will include that as well.

    There is an Estonian NGO that has been very successful in getting donations to Medic packs to all regiments and batallions in Ukraine. http://freeukraine.net/en/ Think they raised 200.000-300.000 EUR in small Estonia alone. Very good guys and they have done a tremendous job. I've been helping...

    Thank You! Everything that is wrong about Ukraine comes from Russia. Corruption, oligarchs, lack of loyalty. These are the blueprint of the Russian society. Think that Russians have a lot in common with the Arabs. I've been a lot in Northern Africa and it struck me in Ukraine how similar...

    Thanks! Think he meant that there are a lot of Americans with military experience that are valuable. Don't think they have many Americans. That was probably the only one. In ATO there has been two Americans. One had Ukrainian heritage and died fighting for the Donbass batallion. The other was...

    BTW: Heard that there is a Finn that has fought on the separatist side. Is that true?

    @Sinkomies I would like to ask about communications equipment, electronic warfare and associated policies. I understand the limitations of OPSEC so you comment on what you can, okay? 1) What kind of communications equipment is used by Ukrainian and Russian sides? Do cellular networks and other...

    Foreigners often had very good training. Most had several years of professional experience from the best outfits in their home countries. Ukrainians not so much though. Some were very good, others were not. Most high officers were shit. Best level: 5+ years in Foreign Legion. Worst level: No...
