A critique of current Army CPXs: "Train Like You Fight" And The Command Post Exercise
"But there’s no doubt that Moscow’s tankers have brought T-72B3 tanks to the Ukrainian battlefield. Russian tank-maker Uralvagonzavod cooked up that vehicle type specifically for the Kremlin’s armored units back in 2010. Five years later, Moscow was still the only country to put the type into service."
And at the certain risk of pissing off the Russophiles and Putin apologists who try to police this blog:
“In the Ukraine conflict, many have scoured the military equipment sightings on social media to find evidence of Russian involvement,” Veli-Pekka Kivimäki, a Finnish doctoral student and open-source intelligence expert, wrote in a piece for the investigative Website Bellingcat on May 28, 2016. “The modernized T-72B3 main battle tank has been an example of military equipment that is out of place in a conflict where Russian government actively denies military involvement.”
I'm sure this is also just in my imagination: Russia deploys troops westward as standoff with NATO deepens
