Ironbound Concepts Sends-

“Piss off the comms, we are at war!”

A view from across the pond. This is a good snapshot of what Small Unit Communications needs look like at the local level.

Let me remind all of you, this is coming from an active war zone, where reality is quite real. You do the best you can with what you have; folks who’ve actually done this for real, in real places, recognize this.

Ironbound Concepts

Mainly for Ncscout, also for everyone interested. Previous post here.

Funny to read about civil war on the South-East of Ukraine. It is NOT funny war (as any war), but it is funny as hell then it comes to “strange” cases and tendencies.

First quote from pro-Kiev forces AAR:

Sadly, arty recon and main comms came with the next echelon, and 25st btn entered the combat still not established comms and interaction with the BrAG-128 group, and there were no qualified forward observers in the leading combat formations.

      Ukraine on the other hand is much more realistic as to how it will likely look in the not so distant future. The breakup of the Balkans is yet another.

    1. That, and keeping things compartmentalized.

      One of the largest issues for them seems to be controlling the flow of information. I’ll have a rather lengthy post on how it works soon as time allows- however Bill Roberts contributed over at WRSA on staff functions, which\ is the same general idea.
