7.62x39 x 3 would have been a better choice. Now he can heal and get even.
Interesting claims from the Ukrainians
1. The Robotyne and Avdiivka operations are linked - Ukrainians pushing at Robotyne and Russians pushing at Avdiivka.
2. Both Russians and Ukrainians relocated forces from Robotyne to Avdiivka
3. Russians moved 50% of their forces while the Ukrainians moved 40%.
4. Russians left their front line in place and relocated their entire reserve and abandoned unit rotation.
5. The Ukrainians reduced their front line strength but retained their reserves and preserved unit rotation.
6. The Ukrainians also reassigned their artillery support. Volume went to the Avdiivka front to deal with the mass of infantry. Precision went to Robotyne to continue the wearing down.
7. The Russians eventually succumbed to fatigue in Robotyne and Kopani and let the Ukrainians slip through their lines. NVGs and silencers permitted the Ukrainians to suppress the Russian guards and allowed the Ukrainians access to an underground barracks. The occupants were machine gunned in their sleep. The Ukrainians left, threw in a few grenades and departed.
8. The Ukrainians are now widening the Robotyne salient rather than deepening it.
9. Against this back drop the Russian Avdiivka assaults are resulting in more than 1000 killed and wounded Russians every day.
10. Cluster rounds work really well against infantry attacks. (And the don't wear out barrels as fast).
