Amazing detail.

But when you call it a "Special Military Operation" you aren't being accurate. You are allowing yourself to be part of the propaganda. I know that's not your intention. But there will be hundreds, if not thousands, who watch this video that don't know your often voiced support of Ukraine. They will just see you parroted Russian propaganda.

I know you are trying to be objective. (not neutral) I get it. But you can accomplish the same objective by calling it an "illegal war". By doing so you are not furthering the propaganda and you are being MORE accurate. It is a war, that is illegal. It's NOT a special military operation.

This isn't a nit being picked. It's important. Especially if journalism is your ultimate goal. WORDS MATTER.

This is such a good explanation of how air assault is used today. It addresses upfront the question of the vulnerability of helicopters and helicopter operations. My thorough admiration for the pilots and crew, not only for the risks of combat operations but also for the huge risks and challenges of carrying loads under the helicopter. The load masters have enormous responsibility. This beautifully researched video was the reason I became a paid subscriber.

The gun raid sounds like the old Stone Cold Steve Austin t-shirt. “Arrive, raise hell, leave”
