As TASS reports (in Russian) the first set of combat ready Poseidons have been produced. All tests of Poseidon's systems and blocks have been completed successfully. Well, that surely changes the perspective, doesn't it? Something tells me that real combat Poseidons have been already deposited... who knows where. In related news, WOW!
BRUSSELS (AP) — The U.S. military's new, expanded combat training of Ukrainian forces began in Germany on Sunday, with a goal of getting a battalion of about 500 troops back on the battlefield to fight the Russians in the next five to eight weeks, said Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Milley, who plans to visit the Grafenwoehr training area on Monday to get a first-hand look at the program, said the troops being trained left Ukraine a few days ago. In Germany is a full set of weapons and equipment for them to use. Until now the Pentagon had declined to say exactly when the training would start. The so-called combined arms training is aimed at honing the skills of the Ukrainian forces so they will be better prepared to launch an offensive or counter any surge in Russian attacks. They will learn how to better move and coordinate their company- and battalion-size units in battle, using combined artillery, armor and ground forces.
I am sure Russian Army is shaking with fear anticipating the arrival of those 500 super-pooper warriors trained by the Army which is not exactly keen on real combined arms operations, and I mean real ones. Truth is, I am about to commit a blasphemy, if not for utter corruption and the loss of the best troops, Ukies could have written a few Field Manuals themselves and could teach the US Army a lesson or two on how to fight a real war. But I believe Pentagon's stellar performance in Iraq and Afghanistan is a track record of a supreme mastery of strategy, operational art and tactics which no military, especially those backward primitive Rooskies, can achieve. So, expect soon VSU strategic offensive operations, led by those 500.
