      People seriously don't realise how bad russian logi losses have been. And bear in mind they never had enough to begin with, there's a reason they needed to loot so many civvie cars.

      no, there are still plenty of military trucks rotting in long term storage, Also there are even more civilian trucks and cars in russia. they can also easily buy more from china. If there are not enough in military units russian leadership is to blame.

        Because Russians and the Russian economy clearly don't need these trucks and cars to function.

      cant be, if it was that they would use 4x4s or just plain civilians SUVs first
      probably really is the fact that motorbikes are somewhat harder to spot for drones

        Less predictable and can use game trails/foot paths to get around as well. Even quads are pretty much stuck to taking roads unless the ground is even enough

        They have been using those since the start though? Espeically the irregular forces like the Separatists and mercs...

        Armored transports, yes, 100% they are running out

        Trucks are something they've had a lack of since the start hence the Bukhanka being everywhere.

          Isn't it in reference to the Ukrainian coat of arms, with the implication that the middle spike looks a bit like the crest of a wiener (bird)?

            No, it's just a quirk of MTL translating "хoхлы" as 'crests'.

      I guess the idea is that a drone or tank can't wipe a squad out as easily, they cover more ground overall and you can hide them easier

      They've been using motorcycles for transport for months now. Where do you think all those videos of them getting hit by drones are coming from?

      No.
      But trucks can't always just drive up to frontline positions. So you have small vans, motorised wheelbarrows, atvs and indeed motorbikes.

    I just got back from the city and saw Black folk on dirtbikes everywhere. I think Russia watched a rap video and monkey see monkey do.

        Baltimore. I saw at least 20 rolling around on them throughout the day. Dirtbikes, not duelsports. Driving pretty recklessly, too.

          I knew that was a trend in South America but didn't realize the dregs up here started doing it too. The SM fad is getting out of hand

            Here too, on the weekends the gangs get pretty big and will even block traffic at an intersection to prevent the group from being broken up. Cops won't do shit because there are just too many in the group.

    Duct Tape a dildus to the seat of the Bike then charge at the one trench with a remote controlled machine gun nest. Film it with a nikon camera for posterity.

    i know this is moronic beyond belief but as a kid i always imagined mounting a fixed gun in my bycicle and shoot other vehicles like it was some kind of ww2 air combat but with vehicles so i would probably mount a center fuselage autocannon to the motorcycle aimed with an elevation to make mortal hit and run attacks from some forest into some entrenched positions.
    like start firing like crazy on the move and then frick off asap

    they make sense for recon over rough terrain and stuff I would assume, those electric motorbikes are really quiet
    for actual assaults it seems like suicide, no armour or coverage just dudes out in the wind

    I love motorcycles but it is dumb as frick for all but very specialized uses and units.
    You lack cargo capacity, are exposed to all elements and enemy fire, will get hurt if you go down loaded up with gear, and the performance depends on the skill level of the rider.
    The average mobik seem to need luck to do anything but ride forward. Forget about technical forest trails or riding around the average cratered out battlefield. And unless you have a passenger you can't shoot back.
    I think ebikes would be useful for sof type of operations like recon due to the relative stealth but anything else is just asking for you to waste men and equipment.

      Didn't some Ukies say they used bikes and ATVs to sneak close to the Russian convoy and launch drones during the fighting for Kyiv?
      The situation around that road from the north was an absolute clusterfrick, though. You'd almost certainly get spotted if you tried to get past the lines now.

        As a cargo delivery - maybe
        As a CASEVAC - no
        As an assault vehicle - extremely moronic

        >What are the ideal weapons to equip your motorcycle battalions?
        Pistols only. You need at least one hand on a steering. Also, you need to think out a holster for it (it should probably be on a chest)

        Frontline is now well established and you cannot just sneak a vehicle beyond it.
