Dust off that old smoke pole – Ukraine

Ukraine is our most accurate example of 21st Century warfare, two technologically parallel and nation states fighting a brutal campaign with a fair spread of modern technology. We’ve seen extensive use of drones, modern rocket systems, anti-drone weapons, thermal and night observation tech, modern rifles and optics, and more.

But we’ve also seen old systems get dusted off, blasted with breakfree to get the parts moving again, and sent forward to fight.

Mike Jones takes a look at some of the classic and weird small arm relics that have popped up in this otherwise very modern nation state conflict.

Don’t knock the old ways, they used to be state of the art for a reason.
