In recent days, it appears that the Russian Armed Forces are either receiving some brand new battle tanks or are organizing tank trainings.

Examples include:

  • In accordance with the plan for the rearmament of the units of the Navy’s Coastal Forces with modern models of military equipment, the Primorsky Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet received T-80BV battle tanks;
  • Tank crews of a motorized rifle formation of the Southern Military District at the Prudboy training range fired at long range from a cannon of the T-90A tank at emerging and moving targets as part of a bilateral tactical training company in the Volgograd Region;

Танкисты мотострелкового соединения ЮВО на полигоне Прудбой провели стрельбы на большие дальности из пушки танка Т-90А по появляющимся и движущимся целям в рамках двустороннего ротного тактического учения в Волгоградской областиОдной из целей занятия была стрельба на большие дальности до 8 тыс. м. Сложность заключается в выполнении стрельб с закрытой огневой позиции по ненаблюдаемой цели. Обычно стрельба из танка ведется прямой или полупрямой наводкой, когда наводчик и командир танка могут наблюдать цель.Стрельба велась по целям, имитирующим танк, атакующую группу пехоты, безоткатное орудие на автомобиле и ручной противотанковый гранатомет.#Минобороны #ЮжныйВоенныйОкруг #ЮВО #Армия #АрмияРоссии #танкисты #танки #Учения #Т90

  • Tank crews of the Southern Military District performed live firing at the Kadamovsky training ground in the Rostov Region. Tankers fired from the cannons of the T-72B3 tanks with a standard projectile, as well as from a large-caliber anti-aircraft machine gun at emerging and moving targets that simulate a moving tank, anti-tank grenade launcher and recoilless artillery gun of a conventional enemy from a place and a move, at distances from 300 to 2000 m.

These developments are likely connected to the holiday of Russian tank personnel, which is customarily celebrated on the second Sunday of September, which was the 7th this year.

The holiday was established by Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR of July 1st, 1946 to commemorate the great merits of armored and mechanized forces in the defeat of the Nazi invaders during the Great Patriotic War, as well as the merits of tank builders in equipping the country’s Armed Forces with armored vehicles.

    Very good deployment and using natural foliage, terrain advantage and camouflage. Russia should hold more joint exercises with allies like Iran, China, Syria, Cuba, Serbia, Belarus, Venezuela etc in combined arms deployment. Russian military is a very disciplined force and their armored and infantry combined assaults won WW2 and defeated the Nazis. The new technology and armored assault doctrine should be passed on to Russia’s allies. The tank biathlon and joint exercises with some nations is a good start.

    • Toronto Tonto

      Ha ha ha drunks in junk .

    • Davki

      Their losses were horrendeous, however. It was not good tactics but overwhelming numbers that won the war.

      • Jens Holm

        Yes, that too. His words are a little too overwhelming for me too.

        Russians probatly took Japan themselves too :)

      • FlorianGeyer

        Russia still won the 2nd War. The US and UK was just a sideshow in comparison. Most of the German military strength was depleted on the Russian Front.

        All the US and UK really achieved was the massive destruction of German cities with airpower.

        We must also accept today that China also has the numbers required.

    • Jens Holm

      The best camouflage would be not to be there at all. It would save money as well

  • Boycott-Israel!

    Good Tank!

  • Tiresia Branding

    Operation “Ikebana”? :-D

  • Toronto Tonto

    I remember what happened to tanks like this in Iraq .

    • James

      What tanks does Canada make?

      • Human kind is doomed

        Don’t ask him, he is no Canadian!

        • Jens Holm

          Nice people at least are clever enough to give a link :(

          • Human kind is doomed

            Here you can find only proven facts, so you are right to ask for proof!
            If you ask me for link, there is no any!
            My comment was sarcastic.

          Do the Canadians use that spelling? I know the Ukrainians and others do.

      • FlorianGeyer

        Water tanks?

    • Human kind is doomed

      There were no such tanks in Iraq! You should troll better than this!

    • Daniel Miller

      What happened to the Mekrava in 2006?
      and the M1 in 2015 in yemen?

      • Jens Holm

        Its the usual propaganda stuff not telling all the rest are doing well in their class.

        As I reacll it one tilted in Israel, but it was because the driver fell a sleep or got a heat stroke. The pictures having the tank upside down made many laugh – too.

    • skinnerreturns

      There were no Russian tanks in Iraq, monkey exports from the SU are not the same.

  • Morton

    Kaliningrad is a slum. It used to be the beautiful German city of Koenigsberg before the Russians stole it.

    • James

      The Germans took what wasn’t theirs, they lost, and Russia claimed some of the spoils. Be grateful Germany still exists at all.

    • Tiresia Branding

      so Friedrich der Grosse was not one of the “Grosse” thieve in history? A “Grosse” ispiration to Hitler too

      • Davki

        Bollocks. Using Friedrich den Großen as propaganda is one thing, putting him in the same boat as Hitler is another. That remark was completely off.

        • Tiresia Branding

          hey, what propaganda!? It is history. If you haven’t some good books you can google for

          • Jens Holm

            What a remark putting only people like Hitlerinto this. Very infected. All Nationalisme has that touch.

            Who inspired Boolsjevics for recolusion in the whole world. I know about Polish dreams too.

            Nationalisme and Emperialisme is like that….

          • Tiresia Branding

            what’s the matter here? Needed to mention how many jews was implicated in the “Russian” revolution, starting from Carl Marx and ending with the fake genius, but real B’nai B’rit member, Albert Einstein? How many bolshevik jews(Lenin, Trozky, huh)? How many jews in the Stalin’s secret police? How many in the politbureou of the Communist Party? And, without considering the jewish bankers who funded Hitler, how many jewish officials in the Nazi’s ranks(Soros huh)? It is better for you I stay silent

          • Jens Holm

            I see no problems in Jews involved in things. They compared tp You invent things we need as well as things,we dont need.

            Almost everytime I meeet muslims and right wings here, they go back to 650 or fascisme in Rome.

            Thats where the real problems are.

            Almost the only things Your kind invent are excuses for doing no needed changes even for Yourself.

            No wonder some few Jews can give 1 billion muslims a hard time. They work hard and got paid pr hour. They educate themselves too.

            I know the Bolsjevic Jews well, but blame the Tzars for why those became in Power. Exact the same for fx Syria. You let the wrong people be Leaders and let Yourself being raised and cheated ass sheep.

            You – as with the Jews – now most likely blame Jihadists, BUT You forget You makemost og them Yourself.

            West is based in school, education, hard work and skills. Thats why at least my part have a high living standard. BUT for that we have to have enough inventing things and going forward even there are fiaskos to pay as well. Here a lot of Jews are vey good at that, so theyare very well repected and assimilated and integráted as such.

            The big difference from where You are whatever You are muslim or Russian origin are we also tax private companies as well as we have high wages and by that get high income tax from every imployed, so the extra jobs initiative takers make give us all tax.

            The main problem for Russia before the Bolsjevics were things like that was fulfilled. We see the same today. Dont blame Jews for that.

            The same goes for Syria and MNuhammed Economics. You tax systems hardly include that kind of income.Therefore every producer can acht as thieves and too many becoes rich by cheating the rest of You. So where are the jews in Syria or Iraq doing that.

            Your problem is, You almost only has Sunni telling that tradition is more important as long as it can support Your children. By that You as citicen or country is frozen.

            Dont blame us as well as the jews for that.

      • Jens Holm

        Most were killed by Stalin and USS`R themselves, and it contbued after WW2 as well.

        Many were not even Russians but Baltics, Poles and jews. Hard for me to see how many from Karelia as well as Ukraine felt as they where not only spendables for Your “Reich”.

        We see exact the same for Putin today. Preussen at Frederich the Great was a newcommer and Russia systematic took from every neighbor before and after wherever they could.

        • Tiresia Branding

          seems to me it is a better abit for Nutty or Lieberman, or any of your cursed race

    • Toronto Tonto

      Crimea was once beautiful until 2014 when the Russian terrorists stole that land as well .

      • Tiresia Branding

        correct statement if you substitute Palestine to Crimea, Khazarian to Russian and 1948 to 2014

        • Jens Holm

          Those are not comparables at all even You can find small semilarities here and there too.

          • PZIVJ

            You seem to be posting here a lot lately.
            Did you get tired of trolling Liveuamap?

          • Jens Holm

            Tired no. I am a kind of partly retired. Here and there I sometimes works more then full time, then there are nothing, a full day or even less then half a day.

            In August 18 to 24 I worked 52 hours. The last days I have had nothing but has been claening my small garden for the autum taking in the first fruit as well as reducing the strawberries.

            I also have started a small glass house for making very early and very late tomates(we have a short seasin for plants like them). The sides supporting the roof are ready and by reused tree.

            The glass will be TRAPEZ in plastic in stead of glass. Its a little more expensive but I can make the exact seize by a very good knife and break it. Iam not good handling glass and its heavy and difficult for my scooter as well.

            We use that material a lot in Denmark for smaller buildings and incl. addings too for small houses and garages. You have to remember to build “with the wind”.

            At my old house I had and aneex with that kind of roof. Very good. No windows needed and neighbors could not see in. It could be to warm, so I had to open the door but was very good in cold and rainy days for drying clothe as well.

            What else do You need to know.

            You probatly live in a castle pretending You are a king in a gold tub or something :) And Konkubines are crawling all over like Eddie Murphey in Your dream wish soon comming to America :) Maybee You print Your own money too.

            Sadly, I am still waiting for a concubine. Shh, don’t tell the wife !
            Keep up the work with your greenhouse, nature is healthy for the mind and spirit.
            In pictures above, appears Russians have made special tank mounts for potted plants and shrubbery :)

      • AM Hants

        LOL. Never thought you were a comedian. Riddle me this, how much has Russia invested in Crimea, since 2014?

        How much did Ukraine invest in Crimea, since they were gifted the area, with no consultation, back in 1954?

        By the way, when do the trains start using the Kerch Strait Bridge? Now how long did that take Russia, to design and build?

        Crimea 2019

        Vesti Special Report: Holidays Begin in Crimea With Brand New Attractions For Russian Tourists

        Around 44 minutes into thie video below, it shows how the Tatars were treated, over in Crimea by Ukraine. No water or sewage facilities and no heat or electricity. How can you expect people to live like that?

        There again, isn’t that what is coming to Ukraine, owing to them not being able to afford to pay back the IMF loan. Payments are due to start this month, are they not? Where did the money go? How many oligarchs benefitted, as it now sits in off shore accounts, belonging to the oligarchs and not the people of Ukraine?

      That’s the risk you run for starting a war of annihilation. You may end up being the one that gets annihilated itself. As James said, Germany should be grateful it still exists. If the Morgenthau plan had been implemented, turning Germany fully in an agricultural state, there would be probably be less Germans alive today then there are Dutch.

    • Jens Holm

      None inhabitants was alive. No good buildings as well. No poles, no jews, no lituanians, no germans.

      Russians did not steal it. The trade was made by many years of relative sober negosiations as well.

  • Brian Michael Bo Pedersen

    A less russiafobia title to this article:

    Russia trains tankcrews in western Russia.

  • AM Hants

    It is a shame that Russia did not conduct an exercise, similar to one held last year, with at least 300,000 serving military members, together with a vast wealth of aircrafts, helicopters, missile defence systems, land based vehicles, including the tanks, plus, a variety of military ships and submarines, on the borders of Khalingrad, just as NATO were packing up.

    Would have been worth it, just for the look of horror on the faces of the serving members of NATO.

  • Jens Holm

    Thats why danes are blamed to increase their military budgets.

    According to Putin those Tanks are very peacefull and the proof is, even trees and grass grows on them. Russians even water the tanks in dry years, so we might forget the many extra big missiles, they have deployed there too.

  • Alexey Milchakov

    T-72B3 tanks are just beautiful.
