The Russian military is quite literally digging in, constructing earthen berms around its military equipment northwest of the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, according to Maxar Technologies' analysis and satellite images.

I assume this means that they will be able to use artillery with less danger of their guns being blown up by shoulder fired weapons, and that therefore this is bad for the Ukrainians. On the other hand, it also shows that Plan A did not work. Any military minded people here to explain this?

I predict a lot of dug in Russians having a couple of weeks straight of really bad days when the local Ukraine unit leaders start handing out suicide drones.

Those tube launched switchblade drones being sent from the US will be perfect for those dug in artillery and rocket emplacements. [en.wikipedia.org]

US Spec Ops has been using them for a while to great effect. My SWCC buddy has friends who has used them from combat craft.

"In March 2022, it was reported that the US was considering providing Switchblade drones to the Ukrainian armed forces following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.[1] On 16 March, it was confirmed that over 100 Switchblades would be provided to Ukraine as part of a military aid package.[26][27] Some defense experts point out this is a small fraction of what is needed since 100 Switchblades will likely be expended within days. Further, if Switchblade 300s are being sent, its small munition means they will be ineffective for directly attacking most armored units. [28]"

I really hope we send over the bigger ones for "field testing"

their air ground attack techniques have been outdated by decades. That's why their aircraft are getting shot down so easily by MANPADS and Stingers. They were taught to fly as if the ground forces only have unguided RPGs. Ooops.

Sorry they are dieing, but, pilots usually aren't conscripts, so they made their choice.
