First Koalitsiya batch arrives with Russian Ground Forces

Story here.

Russians are getting more heavy cannons.  Mobile cannons at that.  This is what the Russians know that the West seems to have forgotten.  Missiles provide bursts of fire.  Cannons provide sustained fires.  That's a seemingly minor distinction that has huge implications.

If the modern battlefield is as kinetic as advertised and if "cyber" isn't the solution that so many think but instead its a mix of firepower/electronic warfare (to make the opponent deaf and blind) then our forces are going to be on the losing side of this equation.

We have glaring holes in our ground forces and NO ONE is working on the basics of this thing.

Instead what are we focusing on?  Raids and freaking missiles.  We're gonna be so light that we can't stand up in a fight.  We'll be vicious in the opening round but if it goes longer then we'll be spent and easily found, fixed and neutralized. 

If our opponent does it the Russian way then it'll be with long range fires and we'll be helpless to do a thing about it.
