Ukraine has launched at least one, perhaps two, attacks on to Russian soil so far during the present war. Find out the details here.

ITS TIME FOR UKRAINE TO BE OFFENSIVE,, GODS WELL THEY WILL PROVIDED YOUR PROTECTION TO ENEMY FIRE GODS WELL,, COUNTER STRIKE NOW HELP YOUR FELLOW ARMY IN MARIUPOL,,,, LONG LIVE UKRAINE GOD BLESS YOU ALL VIVA UKRAINE
Ukraine needs to be able to strike into Russia in order to keep Russia’s defense “honest” and prevent Russia from operating with impunity without having to watch its back. (Too bad Ukraine had to give up the long-range bombers it inherited from the Soviet Air Force as part of that 1994 “security agreement;” those might have come in handy.)
Patten was correct!! Russia is a international blight that must be destroyed!
Scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
So, must've been rogue pissed off Ukrainian pilots then.
OK——- 4 … THE AMERICAN LASER-GUIDED 70MM HYDRA MISSILE IS A GREAT WAR WINNING ADDITION FOR THE BAYRAKTAR DRONES EVEN THOUGH IT LEAVES A SHORT FLAME AND SMOKE TRAIL WHEN LAUNCHED THAT CAN MARK THE DRONES LOCATION IF IT IS FLYING TOO LOW… WITH THE BAYRAKTAR DRONE ABLE TO CARRY 2, 7 ROUND 200 LBS MISSILE PODS IF THEY LEAVE 7 GALLONS OF FUEL BEHIND REDUCING THEIR MISION LENGTH BY A COUPLE HOURS OR LEAVE A COUPLE MISSILES BEHIND …. BUT MORE THAN TRIPLING THE NUMBER OF LIGHT ARMORED TANKS AND TRUCKS THE BAYRAKTAR 2 CAN DESTROY FROM LONG RANGE! CARRYING 14 MISSILES WOULD ALLOW THE BAYRAKTOR DRONE TO DESTROY AN ENTIRE BATTERY OF RUSSIAN ARTILLERY OF 6 GUNS WITH AMUNITION TRUCKS THAT ARE DEVASTATING SO MANY UKRAINE CITIES KILLING TENS OF THOUSANDS OF CIVILIANS AND CHILDREN! AS WELL AS TAKING DOWN LARGE PARTS OF RUSSIAN CONVOYS INSTEAD OF ONLY A TANK OR TWO WHEN FAR OUT OF RANGE OF UKRAINE ARTILLERY.
K ——- BUT THE SMART HYDRA MISSILE CAN ALSO BE USED ON THE GROUND BATTLEFIELD. THE 70MM MISSILE PODS WITH 7, 12, AND 19 MISSILES CAN BE MOUNTED ON APCS AND HUMVEES WITH THE LASER-GUIDED MISSILE FIRED UP AT AN ANGLE LOFTING IT HIGH OVER THE BATTLEFIELD TO ARC DOWN TOWARD THE TARGET AREA, GIVING IT A RANGE OF OVER 5 KILOMETERS AS IT LOCKS ONTO ITS REMOTE DESIGNATED LASER BEAM REFLECTION FAR FROM THE LAUNCHER. WITH A UNIVERSAL WARHEADS THAT CAN TAKE OUT IFV's, APC's, TRUCKS, BUNKERS AND TROOP CONCENTRATIONS. THE CHEAP HYDRA MISSILE IS PRODUCED BY THE MILLIONS AND CAN BE DISTRIBUTED IN THE TENS OF THOUSANDS ACROSS UKRAINE's BATTLEFIELD PUTTING THEM WHERE THEY ARE NEEDED WHEN THEY ARE NEEDED AND IN THE NUMBERS THEY ARE NEEDED WITHOUT TRYING TO GUESS WHERE, WHEN AND HOW MANY WILL BE NEEDED. GIVING A SINGLE SCOUTING SQUAD WITH A PAIR OF HUMVEE'S THE CAPABILITY OF TAKING OUT A WHOLE CONVOY OF RUSSIAN VEHICLES IN MINUTES BY DIRECTING THE SMALL MISSILES TOWARDS THE TARGET AREA FROM A HUMVEE WITH 2, 7 ROUND 200 LBS MISSILE PODS BOLTED ACROSS THE TOP OF THE INCLINED REAR HATCH WITH 28 MISSILES, OR AN APC WITH A HALF DOZEN 19 ROUND 500 LBS PODS BOLTED ALONG THE SIDES ANGLED UP TOWARDS THE FRONT, CARRYING 114 MISSILES IN THE PODS , WITH RELOADS INSIDE THE APC SUCH AS AN M-113 THAT AMERICA HAS TENS OF THOUSANDS RETIRED IN DEPOTS) WITH THE PODS BEING EASY AND QUICK TO RELOAD… INSTEAD OF JUST THE ONE OR TWO MISSILES, A SQUAD COULD NORMALLY CARRY… WITH NO TELL TAIL SMOKE FROM A SHOULDER-FIRED MISSILE GIVING THEIR POSITION AWAY THE RECON OR FRONT LINE SQUAD WOULD BE SAFE FROM DISCOVERY ABLE TO CONTINUE GUIDING EACH OF THE 14 MISSILES FROM A HUMEE LAUNCHED EVERY 15 TO 30 SECONDS (GIVING THE DESIGNATOR ENOUGH TIME TO CHANGE ITS LASED TARGET AFTER EACH HIT). DESTROYING THE ENEMY GROUP WITHOUT THE NEED FOR THE SQUAD TO WITHDRAW AFTER JUST ONE MISSILE WAS FIRED AND HAS MARKED THEIR POSITION. TAKING OUT AS MANY AS 14 VEHICLES INSTEAD OF JUST ONE BEFORE RELOADING. WITH MILLIONS OF HYDRO MISSILES IN AMERICAS INVENTORY, UKRAINE CAN STOCKPILE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF THE SMALL LOW ACCELERATION CHEAP SMART HYDRA ARTILLERY MISSILES ALLOWING EVERY SCOUT UNIT AND BTG COMMANDER ACROSS THE BATTLEFIELD A PLENTIFUL ACCURATE GUIDED WEAPON FOR TAKING OUT LARGE RUSSIAN LIGHT ARMORED AND TRUCK FORMATIONS AND HARDPOINTS (TANKS WITHOUT IFV'S, APC'S AND SUPPORT VEHICLES ARE SITTING DUCKS FOR ANY HEAVY ANTI-TANK WEAPON THAT IS ALREADY PLENTIFUL ACROSS THE BATTLEFIELD) WITHOUT TROOPS WORRYING ABOUT RUNNING OUT OF MISSILES WHEN THEY ARE MOST NEEDED… — UKRAINE CAN HAVE HUNDREDS OF THE FAST SMART HYDRA LIGHT ARTILLERY VEHICLES THAT CAN RUSH TO RUSSIAN BREAKTHROUGHS, PROVIDING SMART MISSILES TO EMBATTLED TROOPS AND DRONES WITH LASER DESIGNATORS TO STOP THE RUSSIANS. TAKING THE PLACE OF THE HUNDREDS OF SELF-PROPELLED AND TOWED DUMB ARTILLERY GUNS AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS, THAT UKRAINE DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH OF BUT SO DESPERATELY NEED, THE FAST HYDRA VEHICLES CAN PROVIDE BETTER CLOSE SUPPORT THAN THE BIG GUNS AND ROCKET LAUNCHERS… KNOCKING OUT MOST TARGETS WITH ONE SHOT INSTEAD OF DOZENS OF WALKED-IN SHELLS OR LARGE AREA BARRAGES USING HUNDREDS OF UNGUIDED SHELLS AND ROCKETS…
KK———— … FINALLY THE SMART HYDRA CAN TAKE OUT CHOPPERS AND SLOW, LOW AIRCRAFT THAT HAVE A LASER DESIGNATOR LIGHTING THEM UP WITH THE LAUNCHER FIRING TWO AND 3 ROCKETS THAT WILL ENSURE A HIT AS THEY TARGET THE SAME DESIGNATED CHOPPER IMMUNE TO FLAR COUNTERMEASURES… IT REQUIRES SOME COORDINATION BETWEEN LAUNCHER AND DESIGNATOR BUT THAT CAN BE MINIMIZED IF THERE IS A DESIGNATOR ON OR CLOSE TO THE LAUNCH VEHICLE… WITH THE LAUNCH VEHICLE HAVING TO PUT THE TARGET WITHIN THE MISSILE'S 40-DEGREE RADIUS OF THE MISSILES DETECTION CONE TO SEE THE LASED TARGET… SOMETHING THAT IS MUCH EASIER WITH TURRET-MOUNTED PODS ON IFVS THAT HAVE LASER DESIGNATORS… THE SMART HYDRA WOULD GREATLY INCREASE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF MOST IFVS SUCH AS THE BRADLEY WITH A PAIR OF 7-ROUND PODS BOLTED TO THE TOW LAUNCHER THAT WOULD GIVE THE BRADLEY THE ABILITY TO DESTROY LIGHT TARGETS OUT TO 5 KILOMETERS (4 KILOMETERS BEYOND ITS 25MM GUNS RANGE) WITHOUT WASTING IT'S TANK-KILLING TOWS. WHILE BEING ABLE TO TAKE DOWN CHOPPERS AND SLOW AIRCRAFT WITH THE THOUSAND METER/SECOND BURNOUT SPEED BEING FAST ENOUGH TO GIVE THE CHOPPER OR AIRCRAFT ONLY 5 SECONDS WARNING AT 5 KILOMETERS BEFORE THE MISSILE HITS. AND AGAIN BEING ABLE TO FIRE 2 OR 3 MISSILES AT THE SAME TARGET (AS CHEAP AS THEY ARE) GREATLY INCREASES THE CHANCES OF A SUCCESSFUL KILL… MAKING EVERY BRADLEY AN ANTI-AIR ASSET IN ANY ARMY THAT DEPLOYS THEM…
KKK ———- … UKRAINE NEEDS THESE SMART HYDRA MISSILES BY THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS, AS WELL AS THE PODS AND BRADLEYS AND HUMVEES AND M-113S TO MOUNT AND FIRE THEM ON. PLEASE CALL PRESIDENT BIDEN AND YOUR CONGRESSMEN TO DEMAND UKRAINE GETS THESE MISSILES AND VEHICLES TO HELP UKRAINE STOP THE RUSSIAN STEAM ROLLER THAT IS ABOUT TO CRUSH THE UKRAINE COUNTRY MURDERING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS AND CHILDREN…
Just as good at Modern up to date news as History.🇦🇺🇺🇦
Thank you for the information, Mark. Love your channel.
I love how Mark is doing some current history. Putin's war is unfortunately that history.
If Ukraine was smart they would get a peace treaty ready when they push all Russian forces out of their original territory and stop fighting else nukes will then actually start to fly
And now the Moskva!!
The railway station attack was a false flag, if you look at the serial numbers you can see it’s in Ukraine ownership. The other thing is Russia does not use the toshka-U…
Good to know your history channel has become a propaganda channel… thanks for promoting WW3
Sometimes attack is best form of defence.
Sadly, this is the only way Ukraine can convince Putin to end the war. Sadly Russia may respond with nukes against Ukraine, but that would give huge nuclear damage to Russia as well.
I love all your shows but just want to point out that the missile attack on the railway station is still being investigated and that the jury is still out.
Good deal, wish they would hit Putin everyday somehow to let the people know that they are being attacked.
How about we invade Russia and give them taste of there own medicine?
I've learn't alot about about ww2; and now ukrain and russia war from this channel excellent work Dr Felton.
WoW, it’s amazing that your channel is so updated, offering me the latest stuffs …just appreciating
You are the one to come to for all unknown information…… Keep it up motha fuooo.
