I found this recent and extremely detailed review of almost all of the different weapon types being used in the Ukraine conflict and wanted to share
it with people interested in the subject.
The discussion of many different photos from the conflict is focused on the types of weapons and distinguishing the variants and modifications. It's
extremely technical and seems very well done. The report is from an Aussie company that specializes in this type of activity.
The conclusions are pretty much what most people accept about the conflict:
- Most arms seen in the conflict are domestically available in Ukraine.
- It is very likely that the pro-separatists have received some level of external support. (including small arms, light weapons, guided light
weapons, heavier weapons systems, and armoured vehicles)
- Landmines, cluster munitions, and incendiary munitions have all been used in the conflict.
I'm still reading through...it's a massive report. Enjoy and share your thoughts...
