Ah, yes, you are correct, of course, Emil. I forgot the more recent conflict. I was thinking back to Afghanistan.

I agree with this.
Once the elite Russian paratrooper units made it there the Georgians got in a hurry. They was better equiped then the Regular 54th army.
Still the soldiers of the RF preformed very good whit what they had, it was hordes of tanks the Geoegians faced but it was approximtley equal with a little moore to the Russians.
The Russian tanks was older models like T-72 and T-62, The Georgians had improved T-72 and T-55.
Russia lost, to my best sources 3 tanks, two of them was T-72.
Georgia lost most of it´s tanks and many was captured by the Russian army togheter with a lot of other military equipment and weapons.

On potential interesting thing is with the Georgian AA system "Buk" , (SA-11 if I remember correctly).
It is a very complex system that reaquares higher military education, I hear that it is somewhat unlikely that the Georgians have had time train people to that degree that these systems could have been operated in the way their ware, which have driven some to believe that they ware operated by Ukrainian crews.
It was Ukraine that sold this equipment to Georgia in the begining.
But it is just speculations.

It is so only based on Russian sources. In fact there were no serious land engagements between Georgians and Russians at all. Georgian troops in the South Osetia were ordered to withdraw for the defence of Tbilisi as soon as Russian troops started to approach Georgian border to invade Georgia from other directions. Of course, the retreat in that mountinous type of terrain with absolute Russian control over the air could not be accomplished successfully. Georgians had to leave all the tanks, heavy armaments, ammunitions etc. Nevertheless none of their significant units were encircled and captured or wiped out.


The problem with Georgians that they were absolutely unprepared for the full-scale invasion from different directions and evidently supposeed that the hostilities would be restricted to the territory of the South Osetia.

I still think the Georgians walked straight into a "sucker punch" -- they did exactly what Russia wanted them to do and had prepared, well in advance, for Russia to counter.

It is difficult to imagine such a multi faceted and prompt response under any other circumstances.

Have you heard about the 54th army commander?
Why wasn´t the elite tanks division there and the VDV?
Why was it necesary to relocate Spetsnaz units? it doesn´t cause to much attention to move them around and have them ready.

Yep

The 58th had been on manuvers in the region since July - they were well prepared for the action. It may be that the Gerogian initiative was larger and more forceful than Russia anticipated in their pre-planing - don't have a clue. I do know that Russian "eyes on the ground" was weak but -- their response was well coordinated and rapid.

That just doesn't happen as quickly, without considerable advanced planing, as the Russians made it happen -- there is only one conclusion to draw -- sitting here on the sidelines.

A sohisticated battle plan had been prepared and they executed it well - with, ofcourse, some drawbacks -- equipment failure - communications breakdowns -- all the things you would expect in the "fog of war" .

I wouldn´t calling rushing in 1-2 tanks and some BMP with infantry and the Commander of the 58th army , that isn´t really like sending in the entire 58th.
The army was still getting their tanks ready when the commander roled away with his force to try and reveal the Peacekeepres.
The effecct on the Georgian army was a other, they thought they faced at least the entire 58th army, in the battles the Commander was wounded in the battle, he is considered a hero for his initative.

How long would it take for the US to make a similiar thing if Canada invaded?

All countries have those, I even believe Sweden has on invading Finland.

I repeat there were no serious land warfare. In 1993 paramilitary Georgians units in Abkhazia without central command held out against superior regular Russian troops that were supported by Abhazians for months.

Yeah, it is what Russian generals thought would happen when they sent their troops to Chechnya in the early 1990s.

Don´t start with that again, that is offtopic here don´t try your usual tricks or we end up arguing the space race too!
We are disscussing the prefomance of the army here, not who did what right or wrong.

I will not discuss Chechnya here.
