Nice shots, thanks. The paint on the 2S19 looks odd, or maybe field applied.

Do you have any background on any of the photos?

John- If I'm not mistaken, that would be BTR-80

7th and 8th images are of Russian "Pantsir-S1"

Last image is Ukrainian SPG Akatsiya from recent training routines

Kind regards, Sven.

From these pics I think I have been painting my rubber tires all wrong. I should paint them an overall earth tone. Then just drybrush a rubber colour for the highlights. Maybe a black wash to get into the nooks.

Great pics,
Did anyone notice the "Batman" logo on the 1st BTR-80 in the first pic?

No worries guys, here's another set of images.

There should be some images of BMP's and tanks soon as I saw a couple of videos showing them on train compositions being transported to eastern Ukraine.










Kind regards, Sven.

A couple of days ago I saw some pictures on the news of BMD's reported to be near the Ukranian border. Didn't have the time to search for them then but I have done a short google search there now and found a few pictures. They mostly appear to be BMD-2, 2S9 Nona and BTR-Ds.













I hope you don't mind me adding these to your thread Sven!

I hard to tell since both countries share much of the same equipment, but are there any Ukranian vehicles in these picture or are they all Russian?

Hey James, I'm certain that following pictures are of Ukrainian equipment. Last in the first post and overall green APC's in my last two posts. It's hard to tell as some equipment doesn't have insignia's and neither do soldiers ( those are probably Russians).


Kind regards, Sven.

The BMDs are definetly Russian as they are pictures taken inside Russia.
