Any timelines?
Because the recapture of Kherson has been muted for months.
Almost as if it’s propaganda *******.
Watching the maps with interest rather than tweets.
It doesn't matter, even the threat of retaking Kherson is enough for Russia to pull units from other fronts and relief pressure elsewhere. Ukraine will take it back eventually so long as we give the weapons to make it happen. The reason you've heard about this for months is because Ukraine has been building up a force in that area for months now, the bottleneck is the lack of heavy weapons. The ones we've sent have mostly been used in the east and Kharkiv.

Thats it boys! We are going to nuclear war! Good luck anyone near a major city. Im stocking on on canned beans and bottled water.

Russian missiles blow them own launchers up, not sure youd be concerned about Russia nuking itself, it's certainly not can bean worthy, maybe a nice bbq to toast

It will be interesting to see how Ukraine goes about trying to liberate this city, given it's full of civilians.

They already sent out a message telling civilians in Kherson to leave the city; they actually said the civilians should consider going to crimea

There is a media blackout in the Kherson region, but despite this the Kyiv Independent just made a post saying Ukraine is now attacking inside the Kherson city

Going to be harder defending a city like Ukraine did at Mariupol, when they probably don't care for it and the locals want you gone.

A new artillery system might be coming to Ukraine as the Armed Forces now expects 18 105 mm L118 howitzers from the US.

The reason for choosing the L118 is its much greater mobility (2 tons), which is crucial in the counter-battery fight.
The L118 can reach the enemy at a distance of 17.5 km conventional (19.5-20.5 rocket-assisted).
Compared to the 122-mm Soviet systems, the 105-mm outranges them as the D-30 howitzer and 2C1 Gvozdika SPG firing distance is 15 km.

That's pretty cool, firing range is still decent and you can tow it with a Toyota

I don't think I can post it but there's a video doing the rounds of a Russian anti aircraft missile launcher firing a BUK missile which then proceeds to do a 180 turn and takes out it's own launcher.

I missed that initially but let's just hope that their nukes decide to do the same thing!

Either that or we just tested some nice new jamming tech that worked a treat.

Around 18 Riverine Patrol Boats from USA is heading to Ukraine.

The patrol boats are largely to protect the riverways (will likely be used in the Dnipro River close to Kyiv) but can also be used in coastal areas.
Ukraine’s current riverine force is largely made up of converted fishing and pleasure vessels, so these patrol boats will likely be a highly welcome addition to their forces.

Reckon the Russians will try to cut off Lysychansk next. There's a big salient begging to be cut off behind it.
Now that Ukraine are getting longer range fires I don't think it will be that easy for Russia as they'll be getting blasted from well within Ukraine's anti-air defence. Hopefully they get much more of these systems to really mess up Russia's ability to advance at all.

They might solidify south of Lysychansk so as to push on Bakhmut - if Bakhmut falls it will be a major issue for Ukraine as it is a major hub for the military in that area.
