Gotta love how Israel tippy toes along, with each foot lightly tapping either side of the line.

One week, they don’t want to worsen their relations with Russia. The next week, they grant access to a missile system that can sink whatever is remaining of Russia’s Black Sea fleet. (Keep in mind it wasn’t just the cruiser & frigate taken out. Several drop ships & gunboats have been taken out also.)


I’m not even being facetious - it takes some real smarts & wits to assist in their force’s demise yet maintain decent relations simultaneously.

There hasn't been a frigate taken out in the Black Sea.

Both are still operational.

are they believing their own propaganda?

I'm thinking that it's probably time for NATO to ramp up the recruitment efforts amongst those who've signed on to the 'Partnerships for Peace' program.

Especially amongst the 'Stans' ;)

A Czech-made RM-70 multiple launch rocket system has been spotted in Ukraine. RM-70 MLRS have been produced in Czechoslovakia since 1972. The RM-70 can be considered an analogue of the Soviet Grad MLRS, but the system has a number of distinct advantages. For example, it has greater cross-country ability and is able to hit targets at a greater distance. Until now, about fifty such MLRS remained in the Czech Republic, most of them were decommissioned and were in storage.

The Tatra 813 has the most off-road capability of any of the heavy 8x8x8 trucks. The downside is the air-cooled 17.6L multifuel-hog only has 730 ft.lbf of torque (266hp) from the factory.

The combat sortie of the Su-25 attack aircraft was published by the Russian Ministry of Defense. The air strike was carried out by a pair of Su-25 attack aircraft on ammunition depots of the Ukrainian army

... and for the utterly out of touch with reality crowd...
To put this into context, it appears a senior member of the majority party in the Duma said via Telegram (a UAE-based Twitter of sorts) it's time to Un-nazi-ize Poland ....
"By its statements about Russia as a 'cancer tumor' and about the 'indemnity' that we must pay to Ukraine, Poland encourages us to put it in first place in the queue for denazification after Ukraine,"
That's like the House Majority Leader saying "X" - significant having a senior ruling party person saying it, but not the same as the House itself saying "X".
More on this ....

Meanwhile, USA government-funded fact checking is sorting out the Wali narrative ....

Does it have those knock-off tires that keep failing?
