1. I recall the Russian state was overthrown once in history. A foolish #Tsar chose to support his cousin and joined a war against another cousin. The Tsar was not a very good commander and the war did not go well for Russia. Eventually people rose up and shot the Tsar.
2. Today that history may be repeating. It started with artillery strikes on the area of a Russian border control point attacked from #Ukrainian territory by approximately 50 #Russiannationals. After securing the control point approximately 500 more Russian nationals moved in and Image
3. began taking towns until they reached #Grayvoron where they were eventually met by Russian forces trying to halt the advance. The invading force started with one #tank an #IFV and several #Humvees and also captured vehicles in Russia. ImageImage

🧵 Adesso è partita la bambola degli F-16 all’#Ucraina, con inclusa illusione (fomentata da chi li vende) che siano dei “game-changer”. Ricordiamo i precedenti invii di nuove miracolose armi che non hanno cambiato assolutamente niente dall’inizio della guerra: 1/n
1. Gli #stinger: missili terra-aria con lanciatore a spalla: avrebbero dovuto impedire ai russi la superiorità aerea e il supporto di elicotteri alla fanteria. Ne abbiamo inviati migliaia, non è cambiato granché. 2/n
2. Gli #HIMARS: sistemi di lancio di missili a corta-media gittata (MLRS o ATACMS) che avrebbero dovuto minare la superiorità dell’artiglieria e della logistica russa colpendo le retrovie: al momento irrilevanti tranne per un unico colpo inferto alla vigilia di Natale 2022. 3/n

Pancerna (Abramsowa) ciekawostka.
Na zdjęciu wieża jednego z wypożyczonych nam do szkolenia M1A2SEPv.2 z specyficznym numerem na wieży i...literką. Oznacza ona oprócz numeru wieży generację pancerza:
#Tank #WojskoPolskie #Abrams #abramsm1a2
XXXX - pancerze BRL-1/BRL-2 bez DU
XXXXU - pancerze HAP 1. 2. i 3. generacji z DU
XXXXM - pancerze ITU, EA/NGAP - ITA dla M1A1SA i M1A2SEPv2 EA/NGAP dla M1A2SEPv3/M1A2SEPv4
XXXXA - pancerz opracowany dla Australii
XXXXE - pancerze FMS różnych typów -tutaj są dwa podtypy
To co ważne: nie wiadomo czy pancerze z literką "M" tj ITU, NEA/NGAP mają DU jako materiał. Nikt tego na razie nie potwierdził na 100%, kwity milczą, Amerykanie już koło milenium opracowali rodzinę pancerzu specjalnych bez użycia DU ale z taką samą odpornością.

Russia delivers 200 T-90M tanks to Pro-Russian forces of Lugansk People's Republic… Why the #tank argument is silly. #Russia has already offloaded 200 T-90Ms to its forces in E. Ukraine & Ukraine won't receive a handful of NATO tanks until "several months"
2/ these T-90M tanks come directly from the factory of the Uralvagonzavod tank manufacturer located in the city of Nizhny Tagil. These tanks will strengthen the existing military units of the Pro-Russian Armed Forces in the region.
3/ For several weeks, Russia has been increasing the deployment of its latest generation of T-90M tanks in the theaters of operations in Ukraine.

Photos of destroyed Saudi #Abrams in #Yemen, destroyed Turkish #Leopard 2 #tank in #Syria, destroyed #British #Challenger 2 tank by another challenger tank via friendly fire in #Iraq.

#military #war #ukrainewar #armor
They are not invincible, especially for the case of the Abrams and Leopard, that is taken out by "significantly inferior adversaries"...
While it is good news for Ukraine to get these tanks, I (DPA) does not expect the tanks to be significantly different in term of battlefield impact from the over 1000 tanks Ukraine had already fielded since the start of the war.

How can water sensitivity transform our cities into sustainable urban spaces? 🧵 Image
What is the challenge for water-sensitive #urban design on a #city scale?

Turning an area spread across 1250 square km, divided into 3 major valleys & a tank system into a water-sustainable space. Image
But increasing urbanisation in the last few decades has been diminishing the city’s #water bodies.

Las ważniejszy od drzew czyli o braku ujęcia systemowego w dyskusji na temat polskich zakupów.
Polski internet branżowy rozgrzewa w tym roku szereg wydarzeń bez precedensu:
@MON_GOV_PL @JGromadzinski @PGZ_pl
#WojskoPolskie #Tanks #tank
- podarowanie 300+ czołgów dla SZ Ukrainy
- zakup 250 M1A2 SEP v.2, 116 M1A1FEP
- zakup 180 K2
- mgliste wizje zakupu pół tysiąca K2PL
Są to wydarzenia bez precedensu w historii Wojsk Pancernych i Zmechanizowanych
@PawelPoncyljusz @krzysztofbosak @TomaszSiemoniak
Nie dziwi zatem gorąca dyskusja która rozgrzała prasę branżową, dziennikarzy i "internety". Niestety w dyskusji wydaje się panować "technofetyszyzm" - rozmowa o parametrach, śrubkach, calach i milimetrach za to kwestie systemowe spychane są w cień

ORBAT of the Bersaglieri Brigade Garibaldi of the Italian Army circa 2019. A 🧵
#Italia #ForzeArmate #Military #tank Image
Overall, the brigade is a combined arms formation comprising Tank and Mechanised regiments supported by a substantial armoured Recon regt, an Artillery regt, an Engineer regt and the brigade’s logistics Image
Before we go into any more detail, it is important to note that Italian regiments are, in effect, equivalent to a US Army battalion which generally includes between 4-6 companies and up to 1000 soldiers

A big day yesterday for @saintjavelin. A quick 🧵 with nice 🖼️s 1/6

#ukrainecounteroffensive #RussianUkrainianWar
@DefenceU claims to have taken out FORTY FOUR Russian tanks in just one day. This is a huge number, and really shows the balance of power shifting in Ukraine's favor. 2/6
This means that #Russia has lost the equivalent of 83% of their peacetime #tank stocks to #Ukraine's weapons and captures. It's hard to really drive home how big a loss this is. It is unprecedented. 3/6

🇷🇺 "La #Russie est une puissance déclinante avec des armes nucléaires."

Depuis le début de la guerre en Ukraine, Phillips P. O'Brien (@TheAtlantic) s'est imposé comme l'un des experts militaires les plus pertinents. Interview.

"Si la #Russie n'envoie pas plus de troupes en #Ukraine, ils peuvent réellement connaître un effondrement. [...] L'armée russe est dans une position très périlleuse.

Je serais en tout cas très surpris si, d'ici à Noël, les Ukrainiens ne faisaient pas une autre avancée majeure."
🇷🇺 "Un char aujourd'hui a encore de la valeur, mais comme système de guerre secondaire.

La #Russie a perdu à coup sûr bien plus de 1000 chars. Elle a perdu plus de tanks qu'en ont la #France, le Royaume-Uni, l'Allemagne ou la Belgique réunis. Ces pertes sont énormes."

1/ #TankTuesday #tanks #USA's #ColdWar M103A2 w/ L/60 120 mm main gun. This supersized tank used the M48/M60 power plant but 7 road wheels, 120mm gun, very thick armor, etc. This was overkill for Soviet tanks, underpowered, susceptible to breakdown.
2/ #Military Is the M103 the biggest gun and biggest tank #USArmy ever put into production? In fact, M1A2's 63 to 73 short tons bracket the M103's 65 short tons, but the M1A2's L/44 120 mm is shorter than the M103's L/60!
3/ #USA #military #history – The M103’s 120mm x L/60 = 7200mm=7.2 meters or 23.6’! In comparison, the King Tiger’s 88 was merely 20.5’ and the Jagdtiger’s 128mm=23.1’. Did anyone make a longer tank / tank destroyer gun?

🇩🇪 The Kugelpanzer (Ball-Tank) 🧵

The Kuglepanzer was a one-man armoured vehicle built by Nazi Germany during World War II (1/5) #svagaiature #WWII #WW2 #Germany #Wundervaffe #History #Tech #Tank #Japan #Russia
The only surviving model was captured by the Red Army in Manchuria in 1945 while in service with the Japan Army. How it arrived there from Germany is still a mystery (2/5)
The "tank" was used as a light reconnaissance vehicle with a one man crew. The armour was incredibly light, only five millimetres thick (3/5)

🇷🇺 The T-62 🧵

The T-62 is a Soviet main battle tank that was first introduced in 1961. As a further development of the T-55 series #svagaiature #Tank #Russia #UkraineRussiaWar #t62 #UkraineUnderAttack #UkraineInvasion #tech #History #Thread #TankMuseum (1/13) Image
By the late 1950s, Soviet commanders realised that the T-55's 100 mm gun was incapable of penetrating the frontal armour of newer Western tanks, such as the Centurion and M48 Patton, with standard armour-piercing shells (2/13) Image
It was decided to up-gun the T-55 with a 115 mm smoothbore cannon, capable of firing APFSDS rounds. Experimental trials showed that the T-55 was inherently unsuited to mount the larger new cannon, and work therefore began on a new tank. (3/13)

No #sane man would live with a #ViolenceProne, #PhysicallyAbusive #woman, with a #Femdom, #Gynarchy based ideology, who's built like a #tank and #ScaresTheShit out of every man she encounters!

So whoever you are & wherever you are, your life must be lonely.

Please come to me!
Because, while no #sane man would want you, this clearly bonkers chap longs for an #assertive, #giantess of a #woman, with #MusclesOfSteel, who can make any fan of #NamioHarukawa's art work so week at the knees, he would virtually pine away with longing for her!
I know that, if I lived in such an #AbusiveRelationship, I'd want to #escape.

However, I don't live in an #abusive #relationship & I have the luxury of longing for a #powerful, #violent, #dominant & #controlling #woman who wants to #TotallyEnslave me, from whom #ThereIsNoEscape!

Some firsts: revolving turret, sprung suspension, low track and rear engine. Thousands built. Also used by USA, Italy, Russia, etc. Crew 2: 6.5 tons. 4 mph.

🥳To say thank you for my 200 followers I uploaded another #freebie🎁. I also want to thank @Sketchfab for the great support. It's great that artists are supported like this.💙

#3D #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech #Tank #Cinema4D #Octane #Substance
Here are more renderings, rendered with Octane in Cinema4D, of the mech.
It is rigged, but not the hydraulic stamps. You have to do that manually with constrains in your favorite 3D tool.
#3D #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech #Tank #Cinema4D #Octane #Substance
I am absolutely no animation artist (As you can see) and animate only very rarely, so have mercy on me.
But I don't want to withhold the rendering from you. If someone can animate the freebie better, I would be happy to get a version of it. #3DArt #GameArt #IndeGameDev #Mech

Adding useful info from #Inscription of #Gupta era (~320-550 CE) in this thread in support of सत्र (#Temple Kitchen, अन्नदान) tradition of Hindus

• Place - गढवा (Pic 1)
• Dist. - प्रयागराज, #UttarPradesh

1/n ImageImage
गढवा is a #Fort near to प्रयागराज. Ancient name of this place was भट्टग्राम.

Some 6-7 Inscriptions are found from here in #Sanskrit language. Most of them are badly damaged and so incomplete but still giving useful information.
2/n Image
This गढवा #Fort houses many beautiful #Temple ruines of #Gupta era.

From this Temples, Inscriptions related to अन्नदान (सत्र) are found. They reveal that wealthy people of पाटलिपुत्र (Capital of Gupta Empire) donated a lot for sustaining this सत्र tradition.
