Don't Drink And Drive Tanks

Tyler Durden's picture




 

For the longest time we thought it was impossible to flip a tank simply by driving it. Then this Ukrainian tank operator nearly proved us wrong.

They ought to cover inclined ramps that go up about 2 meters that have 4x’s as supports with tires and junk to see how high they can make those hot dog APC’s fly.


And geez.. never been there but it looks like it was such a nice place before we got involved.

That actually looked kinda fun... But tires are no joke, I've heard stories of kids messing around and putting them on railroad tracks and they were actually enough to cause a derailment. If they could get them high enough or secure them somehow they could probably flip the fuckers.

No one has a welder?  Make some three pronged tank traps out of heavy steel stock.  Light the tires on fire to hide their presence too.  I just wouldn't be standing around though when the APC does get stuck because them.  The crew isn't going to be very happy...

An even looking barricade with really dense spots every 4 feet and the rest easily crushable would flip those tanks at those speeds.

I don't really look forward to trying but it is useful to watch and see what doesn't work.

these vehicles would snap 4x's.  

My recommendation is a chainsaw to the nearest tree with at least a 24 inch diameter.   Cut the stumps 48 inch segments then stagger by laying them horizontal to the intended APC direction.

Separate them by at least 7 feet to help ensure they'll only hit one side.    Brace the stumps on the backside with wedge shaped logs.   If possible, drill the wedges and spike them with a 12 inch spike with at least 6 inches of ground penetration.

Cover the logs with trash and other irrlevant crap.

You can glean a lot from paying attention: Notice how they calmly rebuilt the barracade after the tanks are gone. Even an old lady in business attire picks up something and tosses it onto the pile.

Notice how ineffective the barricade is. 

'Course i've no idea what's available there, how much time they have between patrols, or if they really want to stop the APCs but... A load of rebar, sledge hammers, a portable welder and some heavy scrap steel could help make a difference on that so-called barricade. 

A better option (if given enough lead time) would be a decent excavator to dig a trench wider than those APC's are long, just past the "barricade" so they don't see it 'till they are in it.  At that point Mr Molotov could play, or not, depending on how serious things are.

The best part is that 'Leia' is originally a brunette, and didn't use to put her hair in braids.  Those were both more recent 'touches' to her image, to make her seem more grandmotherly (or princess-like, as the case may be).

Is there some mythical time when the powers that be in Russia didn't treat the Ukrainians like shit? How many of them starved to death under the largely Russian dominated Soviet Union? And in stupid good faith Ukraine gave up its nukes and did a lot of demilitarization with the understanding of Russia saying it would honor Ukraine's borders. It is difficult not to feel some sympathy for the Ukrainians.

It seems to me a lot of the Putin love is out of sheer schadenfreude for the West and Obama or is from Russians themselves. Yeah Ukraine had/has a shitty corrupt government, but from the Russians I know, Russia aint all that much better.

Like some sweet IMF debt is going to be anything but poison in the long run? At least Russia was keeping them warm at an affordable rate in exchange for the asset stripping. The West will leave them with nothing - and cold. It is my belief that the citizens of south and east Ukraine are making an informed choice. The West saying that their "democracy" is illegitimate yet the Euromaidans was not is the utmost of hypocrisy.

Notice how the tanks are spread out and cannot support each other. Also, keep in mind that tanks need to refuel; the tank goes through, the barrier gets repaired, and then what happens with the refueling truck? 

As far as "drunk tank driver" meme, driving straight at it with speed seems like a decent way to get through the barrier, if you don't want to stop and get out and check it on foot, which is what you should do if you have enough soldiers.

That's what I was thinking. Stunt drivers use a bar or ramp with a torsional twist to flip cars for movie takes, and something like that could easily be incorporated into the barricade. If the tanks are going to hit it at that speed, it's worth a try.

Another thing: A linear shaped charge (easily available from construction and mining firms) embedded into the street and detonated at the right time would peel the treads right off the tank, rendering it useless.

Actually, on second thought, one wouldn't even need a bomb. Just cable or chain those tires together, and maybe scatter something with some structure to it throughout the pile. I'm hoping that more Ukrainians just wake up to the fact that they're being played in a proxy war by the US/NATO/IMF.

Auger a 5 foot hole in the ground in the midst of your barricade, fill it with 5 inches of black powder, place a model rocket detonator, then put a 65 inch section of telephone pole on top of that. When the next tank is just about to go over it, touch it off, hilarity will ensue.

Why not just build an overelaborate mousetrap that drops a ball bearing into a cup, which triggers a spring, then pulls a lever, and so on?

No. Concertina wire stacked high will stop vehicles both wheeled and tracked.

Just wear gloves when you work with it.

You wouldn't even need the powder for an APC.  Just make the poles 12+" in diameter, and hide them within the rubble.  If they are buried that deeply, the APC is going to be in a world of hurt.

They all look like they just got out of church. I see lots of smiles. Is this their way of throwing a party?

I'm sorry, what exactly is this trying to prove? There's no respect, I get that. But do these kids and their Mommies and Daddies realize that blood stains are a bitch to clean out of their church clothes?

War is not a picnic, folks.

Brake pods on rear axle, but those are on the back of the vehicle.

Lots of barbed wire.  Anything that would foul or bind the track. 

Any obsticle more than 1-HESCO barrier tall, especially as a series (think funneling the tank/APC where you want).

Mobility kills, are probably preferable to a real kill on your own soil anyway.  Maintenance and support vehicles (and facilities) are the easy targets, especially fuel trucks.

All qualified statements from a former USMC anti-tank assaultman.

Fuel is the answer. Destruction of or denial to fuel to run the beasts and gasoline, fuel, for molotov cocktails.

Some decorated vets (?) celebrating the end of Nazi occupation somewhere in Eastern Europe, possibly Ukraine or Russia or Crimea or whereever. Maybe if they stopped commemorating and celebrating, they would get on with life. All these people living in the past and dwelling on shit that happened decades ago. I'm so sick of it.

Quite possibly a zombie convention. Did Ukraine get invaded by zombies? It would explain a lot.

Many people here in the US were unaffected by the 400k dead in WW2. ( My granddad was the fastest typest in the Canadian Army. He never went to Europe) Everybody in Russia lost someone dear to their family. That is just the way it is.

One of my grandfather's died fighting the Nazi's in France.  We would not have won that war if it were not for the Russians and their exponentially higher losses compared to ours too.

Well, if there was political will do to so, if the war was going badly - such as Gemany did not invade Russia - they could have just nuked Berlin and got a surrender pretty quick, or at least a peace treaty.

Yes, sure. My country got bombed almost back into the Stone Ages. I grew up much much later. I respect history but honestly, when this generation is finally dead, can we please move on and get over it? People die everywhere during war artrocities and you don't see these constant reminders. Life goes on.

I was trying to make some light of the situation.

If everybody just forgave and forgot, we'd probably be out in full scale war every 20 years or less. People need reminders of the pain, that even the victors suffer, so they aren't so eager to do it all again.

My mother in law is Urkainian... That doesn't mean she supports the Ukranian "government" by the way. I don't know where you get the 400k figure from but it is orders of magnitude too low.

My side of the family I have dozens of relatives, my family tree is green and leafy. On my wife's side only about 1/4 to 1/3 remain if that. My wife is amazed by the nonchalance with which I talk of brothers and cousins and 2nd cousins and relatives here and there. At the last family gathering she was astonished that "all these people" were my relatives.

WW2 killed tens of millions and "communism" (stateism) killed tens of millions more in eastern europe.

I bet that guy in the middle throwing rocks needs a new set of undies.  If I were rebuilding that barrier I'd build alternating hard(block, cement) and soft(tires, wood) sections and stand a better chance of them hitting it at speed and doing a Joey Chitwood and flipping over...that should make then think twice about mowing down their countrymen.

If they had built the barricade unevenly so that the left side (for example) was fairly solid, and the right side looked solid but was empty fluff, the barricade would have some effect. 

However, this video does not show young people at war for a vital principle.  These are punks looking for mischief, and they're going to get their ass shot off and make their mommies cry.  fer nuthin'.

Could always get some I beams, dig some holes at an angle facing toward whatever direction the Ukranian Army is moving, put the beams in deep. That'll stop them.
