M2 Bradley Goes HAM, Dishes Out Scunion In Robotyne

Footage from Ukrainian counteroffensive operations in Robotyne, on the Zaporizhzhia front, shows an M2 Bradley coming to the aid of pinned down Ukrainian infantrymen by charging past them and violently lighting up Russian-held dwellings with the M242 Bushmaster 25mm chain gun.


Preliminary reports indicate that Ukrainian forces have taken most or all control of Robotyne, which will force the Russians further south. Ukrainian gains in the area have also reportedly allowed the counteroffensive to enter areas less heavily mined than previous ground held by the Russians.


The Ukrainian counteroffensive has been a costly grind, but there is still a real possibility of a Russian collapse along the Zaporizhzhia front. Russia may be forced to weaken other lines in order to bring in reinforcements to the Robotyne area.
