Are Tanks + IFVs Being Sent To Protect Texas Border?!

Are M1A1 tanks and Bradley infantry fighting vehicles being sent to protect the Texas border against illegal immigrants?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Claim : Tanks + IFVs Are Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!

On 1 February 2024, Real Raw News posted an article (archive) claiming that M1A1 tanks and Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicles (IFVs) are being sent to protect the Texas border against illegal immigrants!

As usual, the article is long, rambling and confusing, so here is an excerpt. Please feel free to skip to the next section for the facts!

Tanks + IFVs Are Not Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!

The truth is – this is just another fake story created by Real Raw News, just to generate page views and money.

Fact #1 : Tanks + IFVs Are Not Being Sent To Protect Texas Border!

This is really silly, but it has to be said – the 1st Armored Division at Fort Bliss is not sending two M1A1 tank platoons, with Bradley IFVs to protect the Texas border against asylum seekers and migrants.

Why on Earth would armoured forces be needed to protect the border against unarmed men, women, and children???

What will Real Raw News claim next? That the US Navy is sending battleships and aircraft carriers to take on illegal immigrants???

Fact #2 : Two Children + Their Mother Drowned

Real Raw News claimed that a mother and a child drowned in while trying to cross the Rio Grande in early January 2024. That’s not accurate.

The incident did not occur in early January as Real Raw News claimed, but in mid January – on the night of 12 January 2024, to be precise. In addition, three people died, not two as Real Raw News claimed – a mother and her two children.

Victerma de la Sancha Cerros (33), her daughter Yore Rubi (10) and son, Jonathan Agustin (8), drowned while trying to cross the Rio Grande near Shelby Park. Another two migrants in that group – Monica de la Sancha Cerros (30) and her son, Victor Antonio (10) were rescued by Mexican officials.

Fact #3 : Texas Officials Blocked Access To US Border Patrol

At 8 PM of that tragic night, Mexican officials alerted the US Border Patrol about two migrants in distress on the US side of the river, near the Shelby Park boat ramp. When a Border Patrol agent arrived to help, personnel from the Texas Military Department refused the agent access to the park.

In court filings, Chief Border Patrol Agent Robert Danley said that federal agents were not permitted to visually monitor the Shelby Park area when the three deaths and two rescues happened. He also said Texas officials blocked mobile video surveillance inside the park’s area that can find migrants in distress.

Fact #4 : Mutiny Carries A Death Penalty Sentence

It is ridiculous to claim that the US military would deploy forces in opposition to the current Administration. The US military is subservient to the US civilian leadership, which is currently the Biden Administration under US President Joe Biden.

Deploying military troops without a direct order by the Biden Administration would be mutiny under Article 94 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). If those troops actually engaged in violence, it would also be considered an insurrection / rebellion.

Military personnel committing mutiny would be subject to a court martial, and those found guilty shall be punished by death or other alternative punishments that the court martial may decide.

Fact #5 : Real Raw News Is A Fake News Website

Real Raw News is a fake news website that capitalises on making shocking but fake stories to generate page views and money.

To protect himself from legal repercussions, the owner and writer, Michael Baxter (real name – Michael Tuffin), claims that his articles are “humour, parody, and satire“.

That disclaimer, which is not clearly mentioned in his articles, lets him keep creating fake news to go viral, and generate money.

His articles have been regularly debunked as fake news, so you should NEVER share anything from his website. Here are some of his fake stories that I debunked earlier:

Leopard Tanks Russia Destroyed Were Just Tractors!

Russia proudly declared that its forces destroyed eight Leopard tanks, but guess what – they were apparently just farming tractors!

Take a look at the viral video, and find out what the facts really are!

 

Russia : Our Troops Destroyed Eight Leopard Tanks!

On Tuesday, 6 June 2023, the Russian Defence Ministry proudly announced that its troops destroyed eight Leopard tanks while fighting off a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The Russian Ministry of Defence released a video on Telegram, showing three of those Leopard tanks being destroyed as evidence.

Кадры уничтожения иностранной бронетехники, в том числе танков Leopard

Footage of the destruction of foreign armored vehicles, including Leopard tanks

The 47-second video shows missile strikes on two vehicles in the distance, from the gunner’s perspective.

While the Russian Ministry of Defence did not mention whether its troops destroyed the newer Leopard 2 tanks, or the much older Leopard 1 tanks, Ukraine has only received Leopard 2 tanks, so killing eight of them would be a tremendous coup.

Recommended : Russian Gov Caught Fabricating Dirty Bomb Evidence!

 

Truth : Leopard Tanks Russia Destroyed Were Just Tractors!

The Russian government has done nothing but lie from before it invaded Ukraine until today, and this is no different.

Those Leopard tanks that it allegedly destroyed were really just farming equipment! That’s why they don’t appear to be moving in the video clip. Just sitting still in the open fields like sitting ducks.

Ironically, it was not the Ukrainians or Western government officials who exposed this new example of Russian government fake news, but pro-Russian military bloggers!

Just hours after the Russian Ministry of Defence triumphantly released its video showing at least two Leopard tanks being blown up, the video was thoroughly debunked by the pro-Russian Telegram channel, Military Informer.

These “Leopard tanks” were identified as John Deere 9000 and 700 series combine harvesters, which are commonly used in Ukraine.

Recommended : Is Ukraine Investigating Zelenskyy For High Treason?!

And this “Leopard tank” was identified as a John Deere 4830 sprayer tractor. Also commonly used in Ukraine.

The Russian military military bloggers even highlighted the tractor’s wheels, which the Leopard tanks do not have.

A detailed comparison of the silhouettes of vehicles from the DoD video with agricultural vehicles, to which these silhouettes are most similar.

These are American combine harvesters John Deere 9000 and 700 series, as well as tractor-sprayer John Deere 4830. This equipment is quite popular in Ukraine.

Why it was necessary to give out frames with an erroneous defeat of agricultural equipment for an actual video of the defeat of the Leopards, we do not know.

It is unknown what ATGM (Anti-Tank Guided Missile) were used to destroy these farming machines of death (to wheat and insects), but those missiles likely cost more than the tractors that got blown up.

Just in case there’s any confusion, this is what the real Leopard 2 tank looks like, and its silhouette. As you can see, its 120mm Rheinmetall smoothbore cannon does not have a muzzle that bends downwards. Neither does it have four large wheels.

Recommended : Did US Send Nuclear AEGIS Missiles To Ukraine?!

Another pro-Russian military channel also fumed about this ridiculous claim, “Why the fuck did they pass these off as Leopards?

This pathetic propaganda effort notably comes after the same Russian Ministry of Defence announced that it “stopped” the Ukrainian counteroffensive, killing 1,500 Ukrainian soldiers and 109 armoured vehicles, including the eight Leopard tanks.

Wagner Group head, Yevgeny Prigozhin, even publicly called it “absurd science fiction“, and sarcastically suggested that this meant that “we [Russian forces] have already destroyed the entire planet five times over“.

Prigozhin also quipped that the war can now end because Russia has “no one left to fight“, and he would now get a tattoo of Defence Minister Sergei Shogun, Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov, and Defence Ministry spokesperson Igor Konashenkov “to mark this wonderful occasion“. What a burn!

Just in case you are wondering, this is not a photo of a Leopard 2 tank destroyed by Russian forces. It’s actually a Leopard 2A4 tank that was reportedly involved in a training accident somewhere in Poland. It apparently collided with another Leopard tank, causing a barrel strike that lifted the turret right off the chassis.

Ultimately, the viral video is just another example of Russian propaganda, which is shoddy as usual. Here is a selection of Russian and Ukraine War propaganda that have been proven false:

Did Russia Destroy NATO Jets, Helicopters In Ukraine?!

Did Russia just destroy NATO jet fighters and helicopters that were sent to help Ukraine?!

Take a look at the viral claim, and find out what the facts really are!

Updated @ 2023-02-27 : Added more details
Originally posted @ 2022-05-22

 

Claim : Russia Just Destroyed NATO Jets + Helicopters In Ukraine!

People are sharing a video created by the Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), which claim to be evidence of NATO jet fighters and helicopters being shot down by Russia while trying to help Ukraine.

The video has an overlay that says, “Only China has the privilege to watch the live video, not even the western countries and the world.“, and it is accompanied by this message :

☝️Nato sent their jet fighter & Helicopter to help Ukraine, as soon as they entered the border, they were attacked by the Russian missile. not a single one escaped. only the Chinese media reported that news, non in the West.
☝️Nato 战机jet fighter & Helicopter 去幇助鸟克兰一进入边畍就被俄羅斯飞彈打的一个都跑不掉, 只有中國媒體才能報導西方沒有。

 

Truth : Russia Did Not Destroy NATO Jets + Helicopters In Ukraine!

This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created by Chinese 50 Cent Army (wumao, 五毛), and spread by pro-CCP and pro-Russian netizens and groups.

Fact #1 : That Video Was From A Video Game

The viral video does not show actual combat in Ukraine. It is really nothing more than a compilation of two gameplay videos from the game, ArmA 3.

ArmA 3, which is also known as ArmA III or Armed Assault 3, is an open-world, military tactical shooter game by Bohemia Interactive.

The first half of the video was cropped from an ArmA 3 video called “Combat Helicopter shot down by Missile – 4 Tanks Blown Up – Milsim – ArmA 3” – from 0:11 to 2:08, cutting off just before the videos says “Subscribe for more!“.

Recommended : Did Mossad Just Admit NATO Is Losing Ukraine War?!

Fact #2 : The Original Video Is Blocked In China

Ironically, the original ArmA 3 gameplay videos that the viral fake video used are hosted on YouTube, which is blocked in China.

So the overlay claiming that “only China has the privilege to watch the live video” is not only false, it is a sad reminder of the censorship in China.

The truth is – only people in China have the “privilege” of being lied to using a fake video that is easily available to the rest of the world.

Fact #3 : That Was A Russian Helicopter

We can’t tell what anti-aircraft missiles were fired at the beginning of the video, but we can easily see that they were fired at a Russian helicopter.

Anyone who watched a Rambo movie or two would easily recognise the distinctive shape of the Soviet Union’s “flying tank” – the Mil Mi-24 helicopter, which is also known as Mi-25 or Mi-35. Whatever may be the case, that was not a Western helicopter!

Recommended : Are Nazis From Japan Fighting For Ukraine?!

Fact #4 : That Was A Russian Tank

At around 1:00 of the video, it zooms in into a tank before it is destroyed by a missile.

The tank profile is also easily recognisable as a Russian tank, most likely the T-80 main battle tank.

For certain, that is not the side profile of any Western tank in existence!

Recommended : Does Video Show F-22 Shooting China Spy Balloon?!

Fact #5 : That Was An American TOW Missile

At around the 1:44 mark in the fake video, you can see that the soldier and the missile launcher that destroyed one of the tanks.

That is the M220 launcher for the American TOW BGM-71E anti-tank missile, not a Russian missile launcher.

In other words – the video does not show Russian forces destroying NATO tanks and helicopters. It actually shows US forces in the ArmA 3 game shooting down Russian tanks and helicopters.

Here is a comparison of the screenshot (left) and the frontal aspect of the same TOW missile launcher in the ArmA 3 game.

Recommended : Did Russia Destroy NATO Arms Convoy To Ukraine?!

Fact #6 : There Are No NATO Forces In Ukraine

NATO Allied Land Command confirmed that “there are no NATO forces or leaders in Ukraine in any capacity“.

While NATO nations are sending financial and military aid to Ukraine, no NATO soldiers or leaders are deployed to the country.

So the claim that NATO sent jets and helicopters to help Ukraine fight off the Russian invasion is false.

Fact #7 : NATO Refused To Send Aircraft Into Ukraine

NATO also repeatedly refused to create a No-Fly Zone over Ukraine, despite President Volodymyr Zelenskyy pleading for one.

That’s partly because the anti-aircraft missiles NATO countries supplied have successfully prevented Russia from achieving any kind of air superiority in Ukraine.

NATO has also publicly stated that they want to avoid a direct confrontation with Russia, which could lead to a continent-wide conflict.

That is also why they refused to send Ukraine jet fighters to replace those destroyed by Russian attacks.

The claim that NATO is sending jet fighters and helicopters to help Ukraine is bullshit.

World of Tanks : Holiday Gift Pack

Winter fun is on in World of Tanks! Storm the battlefield in a sharpshooting British medium tank and grab some Holiday Ops resources to upgrade your Village with this exclusive, time-limited Holiday Gift Pack DLC!

About the Sherman VC Firefly

Firepower: Even higher-tier vehicles should be aware of the Sherman VC Firefly’s gun—its penetration values are the highest among Tier VI medium tanks!

Impressive 171 mm of penetration with regular rounds and a whopping 239 mm with APCR will let you pierce through enemy armor like butter with most of your shots, even including tanks one or two tiers up!

And with good accuracy, a decent aiming time, and a great DPM of 2,000 HP/min, this beast poses a great threat for any vehicle that gets in its way.

Protection and Mobility: The Sherman VC Firefly can’t boast good speed or impenetrable armor, so you should be very careful when considering your position on the battlefield.

Always be aware of your surroundings, and make sure to escape a potentially dangerous situation in advance—with this vehicle’s engine, you don’t have the luxury of quick repositioning and fast maneuvers.

Support your allies on the battlefield by raining your piercing shots on your opponents, and don’t rush into heated close-range encounters. Enjoy your victories!

DLC can be added to your World of Tanks account only once.
You will be able to use this DLC only if you play from the game account created on Steam.

Ukraine : 70K Russian Soldiers + 2.6K Tanks Killed!

The Ukrainian Army claimed to have killed 70,000 Russian soldiers, together with over 2,600 tanks, as it prepares to liberate Kherson!

The retreat of the Russian army in multiple areas of Ukraine has even made it difficult for the Kremlin to decide on the exact borders of the regions it annexed!

 

Ukraine : 70K Russian Soldiers + 2.6K Tanks Killed!

On Saturday, October 29 2022, the Ukrainian Army (UA) announced that its forces destroyed 19 Russian tanks and 23 armoured vehicles, and killed another 550 Russian soldiers in a single day.

This brings the total of Russian dead to over 70,000, with over 2,650 tanks and over 5,400 armoured combat vehicles destroyed in just 8 months of the Ukraine War.

Ukraine’s lightning counteroffensives to the east and south have slowed in the autumn rain and mud that have stymied Napoleon in 1812, and Hitler in 1941.

But the Ukrainians continue to make progress against Russian forces, as they try to recover the city of Kreiminna in Luhansk, and Kherson in the south.

The only place where Russian forces appear to still be attacking is the city of Bakhmut. Even so, they failed to gain significant ground despite repeated attacks and heavy bombardment.

 

More Trouble For Russian Soldiers : US + Canada Approves More Aid!

Russia has mobilised 300,000 reservists, and deployed at least 41,000 of them to Ukraine so far, but they will likely end up as nothing more than cannon fodder.

That’s because the US and Canadian governments just announced additional aid for Ukraine.

On October 28, the Biden Administration announced it will be sending up to $275 million worth of military hardware to Ukraine, consisting of:

  • Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS);
  • 500 precision-guided 155mm artillery rounds;
  • 2,000 155mm rounds of Remote Anti-Armor Mine (RAAM) Systems;
  • More than 1,300 anti-armor systems;
  • 125 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWVs);
  • Small arms and more than 2,750,000 rounds of small arms ammunition; and
  • Four satellite communications antennas.

With this latest allocation, the United States will have committed to supply Ukraine with more than $18.5 billion worth of military assistance.

The additional allocation of HIMARS rockets will be most welcomed by the Ukrainians, as they have been instrumental in surgically targeting and destroying Russian command centres and supply dumps far from the frontlines.

While this MItsubishin L200 with a rocket launcher (cannibalised from a Russian BM-21 MLRS) looks impressive, it is nothing compared to HIMARS.

On the same day, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced new and additional measures to help Ukraine fight against the Russian invasion.

  • Canada will offer government-backed Ukraine Sovereignty Bonds, which Canadians can purchase at major banks to support the Ukrainian government and people.
  • Canada will impose sanctions on 35 senior officials of energy entities, and six energy sector entities; as well as members of the Russian justice and security sectors.
  • $55 million to help Ukrainians prepare for the winter, including shelter, blankets, clothing and heating appliances.
  • $15 million for equipment and help to de-mine Ukrainian territory.

In total, Canada will have committed $2 billion in financial assistance to Ukraine, most of which have already been disbursed.

He also shared that the 39 armed combat support vehicles (ACSVs) that Canada promised Ukraine in June has arrived, and Ukrainian forces are being trained on them.

Russia “Gifts” Ukraine With A Brand New T-90M Tank!

Russia just gave Ukraine a “gift” of their latest T-90M main battle tank – one of maybe 20 in existence!

 

Russia “Gifts” Ukraine With A Brand New T-90M Tank!

Russia just gave Ukraine a “gift” in the form of a brand new T-90M tank – their latest main battle tank!

Ukrainian soldiers stumbled upon the T-90M tank during their counteroffensive in the eastern Kharkiv region.

Its crew seemed to have fled in a hurry, leaving it “gift-wrapped” in tarp, just waiting for its new owners.

Recommended : Chinese DTC10-125 Anti-Tank Ammo Leaked In Game Forum!

The Ukrainian Defense Ministry announced this gift on Twitter, cheekily asking its crew to surrender:

Announcement
The newest russian tank T-90M was found in Kharkiv region in perfect condition. We ask its owner(s) to contact the #UAarmy . Please identify yourself by a sign: a white flag.

It is unknown if the Ukrainians intend to use it against the Russians, or ship it to the West to thank them for their aid / trade for more aid.

It would certainly be of great interest to military intelligence agencies who would love to inspect the T-90M and even take it apart. It’s not every day you get your hands on a pristine example of the enemy’s latest in-service main battle tank!

Recommended : Did Russia Shoot Down NATO Jets + Helicopters In Ukraine?!

 

Russia’s T-90M Tank : A Quick Primer

The T-90M Proryv (M for Modernised, Proryv is Russian for Breakthrough) is the latest version of the T-90 tank series, debuting in 2016 with upgrades like :

  • an upgraded 2A46M-5 tank gun
  • a remote-controlled UDP T05BV-1 anti-aircraft gun
  • a new Kalina advanced fire control system, with integrated combat information and control systems.
  • new turret with improved armour on its ammunition carousel
  • improved Relikt explosive reactive armour (ERA) bricks
  • new 1,130 hp V-92S2F engine
  • improved environmental control system
  • new satellite navigation systems

Russia only has about 20 of these new modernised tanks, with another 600 or so older T-90 and T-90A variants. So the loss of even one T-90M is big news.

Despite its much-vaunted capabilities, the few T-90M tanks that the Ukrainians encountered so far have failed to live up to expectations.

Recommended : Did Russia Capture NATO Officers After Fall Of Azovstal?!

Just days after they first appeared in early May 2022, one T-90M was completely destroyed near Kharkhiv by soldiers of the 127th Territorial Defence Brigade, together with a MBP infantry fighting vehicle and an MT-LB armoured personnel carrier.

Then just a week later, another T-90M was destroyed in Kharkiv as well, by a Carl Gustaf recoilless rifle that its improved Relikt explosive reactive armour (ERA) should have had no problem handling.

The Relikt bricks was designed to be twice as effective as the Kontact-5 bricks used in older T-90/T-90A tanks against shaped charge munitions like the Carl Gustaf HEAT round, even the latest tandem-warhead version.

That suggests that poor tactics and/or lack of infantry support allowed the Ukrainians to hit the T-90M on its sides or back, where armour is much thinner and not protected by the Relikt blocks.

As of 20 September 2022, the open-source intelligence site, Oryx, has visually confirmed the loss of 24 Russian T-90 tanks, comprising of:

  • T-90A : 11 destroyed, 2 abandoned, 8 captured
  • T-90M : 1 destroyed, 1 abandoned, 1 captured

On the same day, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine declared that its soldiers have destroyed 2,216 Russian tanks, and 4,724 armoured personnel carriers.

China DTC10-125 Tank Ammo Leaked In Game Forum!

Classified details of China’s DTC10-125 anti-tank sabot round just leaked in a game forum!

Find out what happened, and what secrets were actually leaked on the DTC10-125 sabot round!

 

China’s DTC10-125 Anti-Tank Ammo Leaked In Game Forum!

Fans of War Thunder are always arguing about the tanks and their weapons in that free-to-play combat vehicle simulator game.

To prove a point in a recent argument, one of them posted a picture of a classified Chinese document together with a tungsten penetrator from China’s DTC10-125 anti-tank ammunition.

The forum moderators quickly removed the post, but it was too late. As they say – the Internet never forgets.

In this screenshot, you can see part of the tungsten penetrator sitting on top of an official specification sheet for the DTC10-125 anti-tank sabot round used in China’s main battle tanks.

While some websites call this a sabot, that is not correct. That is the tungsten kinetic energy penetrator that actually hits the target.

The sabot (French for wooden shoe) is a lightweight multi-part structure that attaches to the grooves on this tungsten penetrator to fit the gun’s barrel. Without the sabot, the propelling gas would just blow past the much thinner penetrator.

The sabot drives the penetrator down the barrel and detaches on exiting the barrel, leaving the dart-like penetrator to continue to the target.

This isn’t the first time War Thunder fans leaked classified information. In July 2021, a gamer who identified himself as a UK tank commander posted excerpts from the Challenger 2 tank’s Army Equipment Support Publication (AESP).

Then in October 2021, a French army tank crewman posted a portion of the Leclerc S2 main battle tank’s classified manual, to prove that its real turret rotation speed is slower than in the game (9 seconds):

It took about 11 seconds for the turret to complete a complete rotation, so 550mil/s (31°) is correct instead of 40°.

 

What Does Leaked DTC10-125 Anti-Tank Ammo Document Say?

Here are the Chinese text that I can make out :

China’s DTC10-125 Anti-Tank Ammo : What We Know So Far

The DTC10-125 is a 125 mm armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding sabot (APFSDS) projectile, used in Chinese Type 99 (ZTZ99) and Type 96 (ZTZ96) tanks.

Unlike NATO tank ammunition (which comes in one piece), the DTC10-125 comes in two pieces. The projectile is loaded into the ZPT-98 gun, followed by a separate propellant charge.

This may seem tedious, but the ZPT-98 smoothbore gun is loaded by a carousel-style autoloader, which can be filled with up to 22 rounds.

The autoloader allows for rapid firing of up to 8 rounds per minute. Manual loading is much slower at just 2 rounds per minute.

The Chinese ZPT-98 gun is based on the Ukrainian 2A46M tank gun, which is 10% lighter than the original Soviet 2A46 gun.

Even before this leaked document in the War Thunder game forum, some of the DTC10-125 ammo’s performance characteristics were known through the US TRADOC and a Norinco internal document.

It features an all-tungsten penetrator with a tungsten carbide core towards the tip, with new Taigen (太根) propellant offering a higher chamber pressure, with a higher muzzle velocity of 1760 metres per second.

The DTC10-125 is said to be capable of penetrating 960 mm of rolled homogenous armour (RHA) at 1,000 metres, and 700 mm RHA at 2,000 metres.

Chinese netizens, however, recently posted this screenshot of a CCTV news report, which claims that ZTZ99A tank is capable of defeating 680 mm RHA at 1,800 metres using DTC10-125 round.

The leaked Chinese document appears to confirm the earlier assessment – the DTC10-125 penetrator is rated to penetrate 220 mm RHA at 71.12° angle, which is equivalent to 680 mm RHA at 2,000 metres.

This makes it significantly better than the previous DTW-125 round, which delivers a muzzle velocity of 1650 metres per second, and is rated to penetrate about 600 mm RHA at 2,000 metres.

The lower penetration reported by CCTV may be intentionally meant to obfuscate the DTC10-125 ammunition’s real capabilities to foreign observers.

On top of that, the DTC10-125 ammunition is compatible with older autoloaders designed for the 2A46 gun, and can thus be used in older Soviet-era tanks like the T-72, offering them better anti-tank penetration without modification.
