until HIMAR problem is not solved this war is not in favour of Russia
HIMAR is devastating the Russia ammo dumps why throw more men into this war unless you have solved the biggest problem ?
also Russia has no dedicated aircraft for SEAD/DEAD missions and as a result are forced to fly low or ultra low and MANPADS has wiped out their aircrafts even new ones like Su34
Russia needs to find solutions to these issues otherwise this war is going to cost them terribly even newer aircraft like Su34 carry no pods or even try to suppress the enemy air defences
Let's not make HIMARS some magical weapon, and the main issue lies with the Russian war machine from tactics, implementation, and logistics (outside of corruption). The Russians are fighting as if it's still World War 1 & 2. They've not advanced in warfighting as one would have hoped. Another issue lies with no NCO and having a conscription-based army; this surprised me the most.
Lastly, Ukraine getting an endless supply of weaponry is another issue Russia didn’t tackle early on.
