The problem with that map is it bases the shot from a spot well within Russian artillery range. Yeah, they can shoot from there but they would be scooting like crazy immediately after. Really limits how much damage can be done.This is the first I've heard. Another game changer, just like the HIMARS. They have a small warhead of 36 lbs of explosive.
US to send Ukraine longer-range bombs in latest turnaroundAfter months of agonizing, the Uabcnews.go.com
"After months of agonizing, the U.S has agreed to send longer-range bombs to Ukraine
Ukrainian leaders have urgently pressed for longer-range munitions, and on Thursday officials said the U.S. will send an undisclosed number of the ground-launched, small diameter bombs, which have a range of about 95 miles (150 kilometers). The officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss details of the aid package not yet made public. "
This green line - from inside Ukraine held territory, is well under 95 miles. Suddenly one of two supply routes into Crimea is within range.
Just have to drop that pesky Kerch bridge and suddenly Russian troops in the Crimean peninsula are without supplies.

If one goes by international law and national boundaries then is half that bridge in Ukranian territory and the other half Russian?Not a good time to be driving on the Kerch bridge after these arrive.
As you can expect, that boundary is disputed, with a somewhat complicated history. As is 'ownership' of the bridge (a separate legal topic from the international boundary).If one goes by international law and national boundaries then is half that bridge in Ukranian territory and the other half Russian?
If they use NATO/US weaponry to hit the Kerch bridge, then yes it could matter.Given that RU invaded, and Ukraine have attacked airfields, fuel depots etc in RU, I don't think it matters
Wow... Could well be in prep for an attack on the bridge...Tidbit, the factory that build the bridge decks just went up in flames, as did a huge oil depot nearby (5km), Belgorod area.
