Quote from: Malthus on August 06, 2014, 05:10:52 PMActually, a more interesting question is when did armoured divisions clash in a war that wan't a one-sided drubbing. My guess would be the Iran-Iraq War.

You can't rebuild a totally dilapidated army in a couple of months. If the Russians officially go in, they can officially pound Ukrainians with everything they've got.
Quote from: Valmy on August 06, 2014, 04:20:43 PMI don't think we sent over any armored divisions.
Quote from: Legbiter on August 06, 2014, 06:55:57 PMEast Ukrainian op has been a clusterfuck for the Russians.
QuoteAnd the Ukes have been blooded and turned into implacable enemies and will crush the Russian proxy forces on present trends. The eastern regions have not really rallied to the Russian cause. This will cost the Russians, dearly.
Quote from: Razgovory on August 06, 2014, 08:33:36 PMThe Ukes don't have to be good, just good enough to stop the Russians.

What makes you think that Ukrainians don't share all the weaknesses of the Russian army? Everything that Russians are bad at, Ukrainians are worse at. Both militaries fell apart after USSR crumbled, but only one of them took steps to rebuild and modernize.
Quote from: Syt on August 06, 2014, 11:17:40 PMNot sure what could be gained from invading. If they keep supporting "separatists" and keep the East in chaos, they can keep the Ukrainian unstable until someone comes into power who is to their liking. Meanwhile they can spew all kinds of rhetoric about the evil West, and the Fascists in Kiev.
