This is the photo of the consequences of the unsuccessful flight of Tochka-U:

 

This Tochka-U was to destroy a major railway station, but during the flight it "suddenly broke, colliding in the air with some kind of obstacle." :)

For some reason the photo was not attached. New attached:

Target Tochka-U was railroad  center but.....it broke in the air,

:):)

then its fragments fell neatly into this railroad car, damaging it when it fell.

If you are willing to go resin, there are other kits available, 2S3, 2S5, 2S7, Uragan, BM 21 (also available in plastic?) etc . On an interested side note, what are the markings distinguishing LPR and DPR vehicles, I know the rebel flag is widely used and the white stripes on Ukranian vehicles, but there seems conflicting information on some other markings such as AHP which has bee attributed to both sides

Something about 

staff structure and marking of military equipment from Live Journal:

Mixed marking both sides by

Uragan is available in plastic from MK, if memory tells. But it is not an armored vehicle.

as far as the tactical identifications is concerned, it seems to me, there were at least three distinct periods in the evolution of those during the conflict. 

-First roughly summer to end of September 2014. Ukrainian army started up with its pre-war ID and painting, but with the appearances of captured and defector's armor in DPR/LPR units they started introduction of white stripes on its vehicles 9udually just two, but some jokers on the unit level were adding the third one a-la Adidas trade mark. Also this was a period of wild art and custom painting of the vehicles on both sides, many of which had its own nick names. DPR/LPR armed forces at that time were a collection of independent militia units and only the larger ones had some sort of unified unit emblems-like "Vostok" battalion (DPR), or Mozgovoi Brigade (LPR). Most of the vehicle on either side were relatively unique from the painting point of view. Here I would again refer to an excellent "Armor of Donbass" decal sheet, which is very well researched. in general what westerners often take for Confederate Rebel flag is, in fact, the Novorossia Armed Forces flag and was appearing and widely used only from mid August 2014 until  end of September 2014.

-second -between first and second Minsk accords. End of September 2014-February 2015. DPR/LNR forces united into two armies (corps) and underwent massive structural reorganization. New battalions with relatively clear subordination structure were established, some old units disbanded, some joined corps and some still operated semi independently. Some rudimentary supply chain was also developed. the equipment became more standardized and unit insignia along with it. some marking systems were used, but rather inconsistently and from the modelling point of view consultation with photos is necessary. New unit emblems appeared but the information and photos started appearing much less often. 

- third from the second Minsk accord to today- DPR/LNR armed forces seems to be strictly structured, with relatively high level of discipline and control over information outflow. There is clearly a coordinated unit ID system within LPR/DPR corp. Perhaps, one of the links above shed light on vehicle insignia within 1st and 2nd Corps, but how accurate it is.....currently the info from DPR/LNR is rationed and censored (as one would expect it should be).

Absolutely correct explanation...I can also add that at the initial stage, here there were many volunteers not only from the countries of the former USSR, but also from Spain, the United Kingdom, the United States, Brazil, etc. ... naturally confrontation with a full-fledged army group, scattered squads of volunteers and local of the inhabitants would sooner or later lead to their defeat, and so full-fledged armies began to be formed. In connection with which many of the volunteers left back, but some stayed here and either remain in the army or have mastered civilian  professions.

Absolutely right!

It is for this that I publish only photos from parades* or open days where it is permitted to shoot. Of course, sometimes there are absolutely interesting specimens, like one overall  gray BMP-2 with barely distinctions under gray snakes camouflage green, with anti-bullet  screens  made of rubber conveyor belt for mine conveyors and a three-digit red number with a white edging on a tower .....other BMP-2 I see with little "Jolly  Roger" on antenna .... this is very I wanted to take a picture .... but then you realize that this is a war and so you can not do it ...... Now this is no longer and most of the technology has green colors, although there are also camouflaged ones. However, on the other side, the situation with censorship is similar ...

* - b.w. curious

moment with a dog from a parade on Victory  Day  2018:

 This is probably a stray dog that is fed by residents of nearby houses. Unfortunately, the city budget does not have enough funds to keep homeless animals so they are only caught by the relevant services, they are vaccinated, sterilization, attached to a special chip and released back. But much more dangerous are the wild animals that the war created from their habitats. For example, foxes were seen in the city, and I even photographed a whole family of an owl on a tree in the afternoon, practically in the center of the city.

Thank you both for the answers, Aardvark, the links you provided, show a good insight into unit markings, although my Russian is rubbish, google translate helps and I am currently working through it. I forget how long I have been collecting interesting pictures, and most of them are from the early period, so separating sides was my first priority.

i have seen the decal sheet you mentioned, in fact it was the T 64 sheet that threw up my question, or at least caused me to question what I thought I knew, as when searching AHP a lot of information put it as an Ukranian unit, it is also not helpful when some sites deliberately sow misinformation and cite clearly Ukranian vehicles as proof of Russians! Shame that in this world of information technology, there is so much misinformation.

 

p.s as far as I am aware there is no plastic Uragan, Modelcollect do the Smerch, Fabbri do a die cast Uragan. I realise they are not technically AFVs but some times it is helpful to include all vehicles used.

 

thanks again to you both.

 - you are correct - my mistake! I even have that Fabbri thing somewhere. And there are a few other conspicuous gaps in the kits line for the vehicles used in the conflict. Gaz-66 in its many versions for one, UAZ "Bukhanka" etc etc.

It is organized by brigade and gives a relatively good impression of actions during the conflict and the current state of play in those outfits. Texts are naturally in Russian but lots of images too - some of them are rather useful. Judging from the leaking info, most of the brigades still suffer from the lack of discipline, underequipped and understaffed.

.......and corruption, corruption, corruption....remember  explosive on ukrainian army arsenal  in 2004, 2008 and 2018 years:

????

Destroyed  in fire on 7 698 000 000,0 UAH (almost  300 000 000$)  shells and ammunition. The most likely version is considered deliberate arson for the purpose of concealing the theft of munitions that were previously sold on the black arms market. 

But the official Ukrainian propaganda naturally speaks about diversion. :)

To understand the mechanisms of conflict - corruption  this is a very important element! ;):)

Thanks for the links, I don't really want to do the other side! I do like to do Russian/soviet vehicles in another guise than just the red army though, hence my interest in sorting out who's who! Once I've worked through the Cypriot National guard, I shall turn my attention to the DPR and LPR, it's a chance to do a T 64 in something other than Soviet colours.

Hi, all!

 

On, this topic:

@col ask about people in this conflict. 

 

I recently got two stories. The first is about completely peaceful people, and the second is about the military. I’ll just give the machine translation of the first civilian story, providing it with my own comments, because it looks very incredible. And the second story, just watch the video.

 

1. Civilian.

 

Too beautiful and fabulous story to be true?

About Donetsk scavengers for a long time they make up legends .... but read for yourself (sorry for machine translation):

 

""What a clean city." True story.

 

Many guests who come to Donetsk from the Russian Federation are surprised, "What a clean city!". Some compare with Minsk. During the war, the surprise was even greater. I think it makes sense to tell one story about the summer of 2014, which was told to me by a man who fought in the Gorlovka militia, in the "Maloi (Small)” unit.

What then happened in Gorlovka, to which the Ukrainian troops approached, I think everyone can imagine. Cork, standing on the outskirts of the city, they say, reached a length of 15-16 kilometers. A significant part of the inhabitants fled from the war, the rest - somehow survived under shelling. The city was lousy with food, very lousy with gasoline and only about two hundred militiamen, who decided not to give up the city and did not pass.

It was in that hot July of 2014, in the besieged half-extinct city, that story happened. The soldier who told me about her was in the detachment's location when he heard that there was some kind of

squabble

at the entrance to the check-point.

Came out to see who the scandal is. Some civilian unarmed men with shouts and uncensored vocabulary almost rushed to guard the base. From the screams one could understand that it was a question of fuel, which was really worth its weight in gold, and which civilian men demanded from the military for some of their needs. The soldier came up, tried to calm people down and find out what was going on, what fuel was needed for. Families something to take out?

 

But the men demanded fuel not for cars loaded with families and household goods, which were used to block the roads of Donbass in those days. It turned out Gorlovka scavengers. They had nowhere to run, it was their city. They said that already significant time did not receive either wages or money for fuel. They took out the garbage, tucking garbage trucks into their meager stash, which had just run out. You need fuel, which in the city is supplied only by the military and ambulance. If you do not take out the garbage in such a heat, an epidemic will inevitably flare up in the city.

In the end, everyone calmed down and they somehow found the fuel. And people under shelling took out the garbage. If you wanted to answer the question, why is it so clean here, even during a war, probably this is it. There are just a lot of ordinary people who love their land. Something like this."

 

Resource on Russian:

https://kenigtiger.livejournal.com/1923372.html

 

So, you can easily make a diorama, where during the lull after the battle, a garbage-collecting car drives among the houses.

 

Unfortunately there was no without loss,

since 2014-2015,

total 12 civilian

communal city

workers who died during the conflict in the Donbass.

%D0%A1%D0%B5%D1%80%D0%B3%D0%B5%D0%B9-%D0

On the blackboard are the names of locksmiths, welders, drivers of trolley buses, machinists, fitters, street sweepers, inspectors and foremen of the enterprises' sections.

Resource photo:

https://dan-news.info/obschestvo/imena-pogibshix-za-vremya-vojny-kommunalshhikov-dnr-uvekovecheny-na-zdanii-byvshego-upravleniya-zhkx.html

 

Of course, now when the front line has gained some stability and most of all resembles a positional war on the Western front during the First World War, public utilities do not collect garbage or repair communications on the battlefield.

But things can change at any time.

 

 

2. Military.

 

(Another idea for a diorama, with elements of army humor* !)

 

 

I suppose I partially answered the question @Col.

about the characteristic 

the people living in the territory of this conflict with one of the parties.

But if we did not have military garrisons* and practically military industry** at the initial stage*** we had to remove tanks from pedestals:

then such a large number of garage-tanks  from the enemy who had a regular army, storage depots and the military industry cause nothing but surprise.

______________

* - yes, on territory Artyomovsk and Soledar were tank and rifle reserve bases, but at the initial stage of the conflict the tank base in Artyomovsk was not captured, and the base with small arms in Soledar was a former Soviet strategic reserve well-protected salt mine, adapted for a long siege that only regular troops can capture. Artyomovsk tank reserve base (incidentally, there were 2 or 3 BMP-3 stored there) tried to capture but failed, Soledar did not even try to capture because of the futility of the attempts. But there are rumors that the leadership of the base in Soledar was selling some old weapons Simonov SKS automatic rifles, Stechkin (including rare early version with butt-holster) & Makarov gun e.t.c 

 

**- The only factory where military production was localized was Topaz. But his specialization was

electronic - 

complexes of electronic warfare R-330 Mandat,

https://ru.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Р-330

complexes of passive detection Kolchuga

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kolchuga_passive_sensor

and aircraft radars Topaz.

All this ECM without trained personnel was practically useless.

According to Lugansk, I don’t know, maybe it was better there with military production, because there was a Lugansk ammo cartridge factory.

at the initial stage of the conflict, the population stopped the tanks literally with their bare hands (as example):

many examples:

On the block- posts around the city, people were on duty with baseball bats and hunting rifles.

The army and the police did not want to fight with the people, and then nazi & nationalists and right-wing radicals and just criminals joined the case, blood poured .... and the flywheel of the war unleashed to full speed...

New reality...new ways of waging war...new war monument....

 

Probably the only monument Anti-tank guided missile

in the world!

This monuments from Shakhtyorsk

city:

P22350621.jpg

shooting BTR-60 & some kind Anti-tank guided missile

I don't know which one maybe 9K115 Metis (?)

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/9K115-2_Metis-M

Sorry, but the weather and lack of time prevented me from getting closer. The fact is that several days were plus the temperature and all the snow on the street was melting, then the weather changed and it became frost, when I  maked this photo was -7 degrees on Celsius. In such conditions, where snow is not cleared and spetstal reagent or sand is not poured, everything turns into an ice rink, on which ordinary civilian and army footwear is useless.Therefore, it is likely to fall and break your arm, leg, or anything else when you fall. In general, I did not take risks.

But You can see the monument in this short TV report:

On the contrary, the result of the fighting: 

P2235037.jpg

which can be read here on Russian:

Next link  "Results of the battles for Shakhtersk (PHOTOS 18+)"

http://voicesevas.ru/news/yugo-vostok/3381-itogi-boev-za-shahtersk-foto-18.html

not recommend for persons with a sensitive psyche, because it contains frames of war without censorship!

But this is a military photo of that period.

 

Perhaps this article is not neutral, and reflects only one point of view, but on Wikipedia: 

https://uk.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Бої_за_Шахтарськ_(2014)

there is practically nothing in the article devoted to this episode of the war.
