New #czech IFVs 🇨🇿. What we know so far? THREAD

246 CV-90mk.IV, most of them IFVs armed by 30mm D-series turret with Trophy APS were bought. Plus 29 mobile workshops on Tatra 8x8, for almost 2,5 billion Euro. There will be 7 versions of CV-90 for Czech Army.

1/x Image
190 with 30mm turret and Spike ATGM:

141 - IFV
31- command IFV
18 - recon IFV

56 with heavy machine gun RCWS (minus 16 ambulances)

13 - engineer APC
12 - arillery recon APC
15 - recovery
16 - ambulance

These versions really make me happy, because thats enough for whole 7th mechanized brigade, plus reserve pieces to replace damaged ones (broke down in peacetime or destroyed in war). Also both combat units, engineers and medical unit will get new unified IFV/APC

My opinion

The security order in Europe is changing, and the main objective is crystal clear: to protect Europe from Russian aggression. 1/12
This means that the mantra of building security "together with Russia" is no longer an option; the only way to guarantee the safety of our continent is to stand "against Russia." 2/12
For some, this is a difficult decision to make, as Russia has long been a major player in the European Union and a partner in many ways. Yet, in light of recent events, it is clear that this is the only way to ensure the safety of our continent. 3/12

To kill #Iranian dissidents overseas, #IRGC & #Iranian Intelligence recruit criminals from #Azerbaijan Republic. One of them was #PoladOmarov who was involved in failed assassination attempt of #MasihAlinejad in NY, #US. This is moment of his arrest in #Prague, #Czech on 08/01/23
In 2021, #IRGC Quds Force hired an assassin from #Azerbaijan Republic to assassinate several #Israeli businessmen in #Cyprus. Cypriot Police arrested him after #Mossad tipped them. Many ex-members of Azerbaijan Intelligence are involved in crimes & they often get hired by #IRGC.
To avoid any harm to its image, #Azerbaijan government does its best to hide the fact that ex-members of its intelligence organization are being recruited by #Iranian Ministry of Intelligence to kill #Iranian dissidents & #Israeli citizens overseas.

#Ukraine/#Russia 🇺🇦🇷🇺:

The 🇳🇱#Netherlands and the 🇨🇿#Czechia are currently preparing two other projects in the field of air defence and artillery for 🇺🇦#Ukraine.

Thread🧶 1/x

@oryxspioenkop @Rebel44CZ @secretsqrl123 @ukraine_map @OSINTua @UAWeapons @LivFaustDieJung
I think the projects will go in the same direction as the current rebuild of 90 T-72 tanks or the production of 115 MR-2 systems. That is, the production and coordination of the projects will be done in 🇨🇿#Czechia, while the 🇳🇱#Netherlands will largely finance the projects.

Now let's see what anti-aircraft systems the 🇨🇿#Czech Republic can offer:

1) Production of additional MR-2 systems.

The MR-2 is a very short-range anti-aircraft system designed primarily to shoot down 🇮🇷#Iranian Shahed-136 (Geran-2) drones.

🧵Weeks ago I set out on the quest to find out concretely what European states are doing to restock national ammo stocks in the face of growing shortages. Here are 4 trends that emerged from Czech R, Norway, UK, Germany, France, Romania, Slovakia & Poland…
2. Based on interviews/research: states have opted to 1) hire more workers to increase production levels of national factories and overall workforce; 2) are placing long-term orders to European ammo producers to expand their production capability; 3) adding manufacturing lines.
3. Amongst the ones to have opted for the 1st option is #Czech Republic, who announced recently that it would be welcoming “thousands” of #Ukrainian experts and workers into the country to raise manufacturing speed and military capacity.

In 2011, the 🇨🇿#Czech company #Retia presented a demonstrator of the upgraded 2K12 #Kub complex. The main change was the replacement of the original #3M9M3 missiles with 🇮🇹#Italian #MBDA #Aspide 2000 missiles, which are based on the 🇺🇸#US AIM-9E #Sparrow.

The missiles have maximum speed of Mach 4, range of 25km and have a 32kg warhead.
Missiles were now housed in compact launch containers, thus eliminating the need for constant loading onto launch rails and stacking on transport/loading vehicles. SURNCZ radar was used for guidance Photo by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří TintěraPhoto by Jiří Tintěra
This modernized complex has never been accepted into service by the 🇨🇿#Czech Army, and currently the original 2K12 Kub is waiting to be replaced by the 🇮🇱#Israeli #Spyder system by #Rafael on the #Tatra 815-7 chassis.

Thread: 25 October 2022: Day 244 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Russia has lost at least 23 Ka-52 HOKUM attack helicopters, a quarter of its in-service fleet, in #Ukraine, many to MANPADS. The Russians still do not have air superiority and the helicopters have less cover from combat jets than they are meant to. Image
#Germany's President Frank-Walter Steinmeier went to #Ukraine today, where he is rather suspected because of his record on #Russia. He met President Zelensky and Kyiv Mayor, Vitali Klitschko, with whom he visited sites attacked by Russia using the Iran-supplied drones on Oct. 17. ImageImage

Thread: 3 September 2022: Day 192 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: #Ukraine's "offensive operations" around #Russian-occupied Kherson advance "on a broad front". The operation has "limited immediate objectives", but exploits Russia's weaknesses, and forces Moscow into a choice over deployment of its stretched forces.
Essentially an "Honest Trailers" version of a Russian recruitment video.

After all that the occupiers have done in #Ukraine, there can be only one attitude towards Russia – as towards a ter'rorist state. And, by the way, it is from this point of view that the attitude towards the citizens of Russia should be determined.
I thank the #Czech Republic, the #Baltic states and other European countries, which brought the issue of visas for citizens of a ter'rorist state to the official level of discussion in the European Union.
There must be a guarantee that #Russian murderers and facilitators of state ter'ror will not use Schengen. One cannot destroy the very idea of Europe, our common European values, that is, one cannot turn Europe into a supermarket where it does not matter who enters. /3

Flows of oil from #Russia to Central Europe have halted over a pipeline payments dispute. Authorities in #Hungary, #Slovakia and the #Czech Republic confirmed on Tuesday that Russian oil deliveries from a critical pipeline stopped due to European sanctions on payments.+
Transneft, state-owned operator of the Russian portion of the pipeline, pays transit fees to #Ukraine, UkrTransNafta, for the oil to pass through. Transneft said its July payment had been returned due to EU sanctions aimed at punishing #Russia for its war with the #US in Ukraine.
Not surprising:
After mounting a ferocious campaign on #Russia that the #Ukraine grain will save the world from starvation, two of the ships that have left ports in Ukraine after months of being trapped there are going to #Turkey, others to #England, #Ireland, #Italy and #China.

1/26 Since I'm finishing let me praise the team for what we've achieved in @turris_cz over the past 2,5 years.

...and let me remind you that those were years of the Covid pandemic, years of the biggest supply chain disruptions, and semiconductor shortages in the past 4 decades
@turris_cz 2/26 yet we managed to grow and continued to improve

#Sales and #Production

and that deserves applause for everyone involved! 🚀

This is approx how our sales grew over the years, excluding initial #indiegogo campaigns in the early days.

Not bad, right! Image
@turris_cz 3/26 This is how the sales would look with initial IGG campaign numbers included. (yes, we don't provide numbers on purpose, it's for your imagination) Image

Day 120 📌 ‘It is the only country where people got shot because they wrapped themselves in a European flag. 🇺🇦 has gone through hell and high water for one simple reason: and that’s their desire to join the EU,’ – @vonderleyen said. More in our brief ⬇️…
@vonderleyen EU leaders will decide today whether to grant Ukraine candidate status, following a positive recommendation from the European Commission last Friday 🙏 Ukraine’s president, @ZelenskyyUa, said he had spoken to 11 EU leaders on Wednesday about Ukraine’s candidacy.
@vonderleyen After the Russian army invaded Ukraine, the #Czech government decided to suspend the issuance of visas to citizens of the Russian Federation and later to Belarus, except for humanitarian causes, till March 2023 🤷‍♀️

During the three weeks of my stay in #Vienna, I heard several times the questions: "#Ukrainian and Russian languages are quite similar, aren't they?" and "Ukrainian and Russian are like different versions of German in Austria and Germany?". So, let me explain👇🏻
First of all, Ukrainian and Russian are different languages and by no means one language. Ukrainian is not a dialect of Russian. #Moscow has always tried to pretend that the Ukrainian and Russian languages are similar. The truth is that Russians do not even understand Ukrainian
Ukrainian is the language that most closely resembles #Belarusian with which it has 29 common characteristics. Furthermore, Ukrainians can easily understand #Polish, #Czech, #Slovak etc.

#TankTuesday #ColdWar #Tanks #History - While Germany's Leopard 2 MBT differs from Leopard 1, it's the longest production tank "brand" I know. Leopard 1 debuted ~1965. 55+ years later, Leopard 2 is still in service. Not sure when production ended. Great clip from @PhilLoder!
