Tony, do you have any idea if BMP-3 is one of few that Ukraine had before 24.2. or one captured from  Russians?

It seems to be painted in the russian tricolour camouflage that was in official used until 2013, so this is undoubtably an ex-russian battlefield capture.

The BMP3 and Sisu was near Opytne, just north of Donetsk airport.

More correctly, they are few hundred meters away from "Ant house" hills on the territory of Donetsk airport. This column was going to recapture this position. There was a video of pro-Russians examining the wrecks as they advance and took this territiry -i have not posted it here as it is a lot of KIAs around, but interestingly in this video pro-Russians were expressing high opinion about M113 bacause of comfortable internal space (probably, compared to BMP) and reliability.

Cargo cult on the level or Russian "roofs".

 

In other news ex-Slovakian Zuzana 2. There were very few photos of those in use previously.

And interior of the live one:

Unsurprising for anyone familiar with German defense procurement bureaucracy: When we supplied PzH 2000 and MLRS to Ukraine, it was neglected to order a sufficient package of spare parts with longish lead times in a timely manner. As a result, some parts are running low and can't currently be sourced from either industry or Bundeswehr stocks. Of six PzH 2000 recently sent to Lithuania for repairs, one had to be cannibalized to make the others operable again.

That sounds like Soviet levels of (in)competence.
