E-Bikes Helping Ukrainians Stop Russian Invaders

Unlike traditional motorbikes, an e-bike makes no noise allowing Ukrainian troops to move about stealthily without giving away their location to the Russians. The Ukrainians have modified the motorcycles to carry NLAW rockets, or Next Generation Light Anti-Armour Weapons, to improve their fighting capability.

Re: E-Bikes Helping Ukrainians Stop Russian Invaders

Makes sense to me CT, todays soldier fights a different type of war then i trained for and equipment used in the Falklands conflict, drones for example are doing a tremendous amount of damage to the Russians transport especially their "T" tanks as they now know the ammo is stored under the turret and hand fed to the turret for loading and firing so they always hit them under the turret and you will see video's of turrets flying meters into the air as the ammo is hit.

An awful lot of modern weaponry is proving it's worth in this war and a lot of countries supplying it are very interested to see how they perform under real battle conditions, i am amazed at how Russia is fighting this war with no regard to the men who are fighting it and the men themselves are just blindly following stupid orders and ending up meat for the grinders. They keep sending commanders to the front line to try and get better results pushing forward but they are being picked off at an alarming rate, they also picked the wrong time of year to invade and are getting bogged down in fields so using normal roads in a close convoy which is rich pickings for the Ukrainian's.

It is going to be a long and deadly war for both side but especially Russia as i beleive they have lost more personel and equipment than they say they have. [Scared.png]

I am guessing that the US, Brits, French, Germans and Turkish military officials are all secretly glad they have an arena to test these weapons they are supplying

Re: E-Bikes Helping Ukrainians Stop Russian Invaders

Rather handy to be able to test them against the Russians without risking the lives of their own personnel. In addition to the fact that the war is a useful distraction from domestic issues and rampant inflation can all be blamed on the 'Putin Price Hike'. The gift that keeps on giving for some, not for the poor people actually fighting and dying though.

Apparently Russia has lost more personnel in this war than they did in the 9 years they fought Hitler. [Shock.png]

Russia's loses to date

Every 13amp socket can be used as a charger for an e-bike. [Big grin.png]

I heard that on the news. Absolutely amazing fact. Considering Putin has made it illegal to call it a war and stifle free speech in his own country, it must be worse living under Putin than it was when the country was run by the communist party. I actually feel for the Russian people who have to live with a mad man in charge.

Re: E-Bikes Helping Ukrainians Stop Russian Invaders

I think Russian losses are greater than their entire decade long war against Afghanistan, surely their losses against Hitler were 25+ million, still shocking though.
