Ukraine being flattened by weapons that have no western equivalents.
What weapons “have no Western equivalents”?
Flattened? You mean as in Carpet Bombing?
That kind of flattening?
Any gas attack is likely to drift back into Russia.
BS. The Ruskies were out of weapons months ago, or so I was told.
SpudBoy in Texas is going to carpet bomb this post in 3,2,1.
You mean it’s war?
Wait, I thought Ukraine was flat already. How can it get any flatter?
Flattening? Hyperbole much?
I call him ZZpeedy because the a55 puts ‘Z’s in place of ‘S’’s.

I remember when we were told the U.S. military was going to “...bomb Afghanistan back to the Stone Age.” A lot of people wrote that country had never left the Stone Age.
Lol, yeah Ukraine is one of the flattest countries on the planet, that is true.
Maybe Z will play a tune on the piano with his pecker and everything will be alright ?
So glad you’re an expert on the entire planet’s military hardware! Who knew you had such knowledge comrade!
They are talking about a 240mm or 9.5 inch mortar. Last I heard our biggest current was a 120mm.
There are reasons that our stuff is likely better, but no, we don’t field a mortar of that size.
But not all is exactly intuitive. Back in 1960 when people were freaking out about who had the biggest nuclear bomb, they missed something. Our were smaller because our systems were more accurate.
Make of it what you will. In a static trench war, that monster is a problem. In a fast moving war, probably less so.
They’re from The Moon.
A propaganda video complete with music effects of a large cannon pretending to be a mortar. That thing would be wiped out by radar directed fire the moment it fired one shot.
Once the Russkies finish flattening Ukraine, they will go ahead and crater the moon next. Again, with weapons with no “Western equivalent.”
