Whats with the bird on her head?

It's a comedy skit junior partner, heh. The bird seemed to have a bigger role in her early videos. Now it just seems like a forever tag along symbol for her skits.

How big is a 'platoon' and is a formation of this strength typically deployed in a single location ?

Not indicated in this interview - anyway, in civil war situation formation "formal" type is hardly indication of its real numerical strength. Note she was "special purpose company" commander in 2014

and since then was even btn commander for some time https://staryiy.livejournal.com/5753662.html.

Injured twice, heavily decorated (including extremely rare St.George cross from Strelkov in Slavyansk). Born in 1975, Donetsk native, trained sport shooter (in her youth), orogonally citizen of Ukraine, was running some sort of business before war. Now her son is also in Army.

Russian army sniper platoon is IIRC formally 3 sections of 6 (3 sniper pairs). But that is a theory.

"The field medic of our volunteer detachment Daria Morozova, call sign "Phoenix", died.
It happened on September 22 . Oncology.

Dasha joined the squad in December 2014, participated in the offensive on Debaltseve. She went along with the infantry. During the battles for the city, she worked in the only medical aid station deployed in the village on March 8 by our detachment. She helped wounded soldiers and civilians. After the reformation of the Ghost brigade, which included the DKO, she served in the 14th BOARD as both a field medic and a BMP crew member.

"Phoenix" was distinguished by desperate bravery, without hesitation went to the most desperate things and returned without a scratch, saved the lives of many people. What the enemy bullets and shrapnel could not do, the disease did.

Sleep well, Comrade Phoenix. We will never forget you!"https://gmorder.livejournal.com/14727533.html )

Amid horror, heroes emerge:

Quote

Hamas was no much for an intrepid 25-year-old Israeli woman — who saved an entire kibbutz from harm by leading a group of residents to kill more than two dozen advancing terrorists, including five she slaughtered herself.

Inbar Lieberman, the security coordinator of Kibbutz Nir Am since December 2022, heard explosions early Saturday, when the terrorists launched their unprecedented attack on the Jewish state, according to Walla News.

She realized that the sounds were different than those heard during the usual rocket attacks on the kibbutz — located near Sderot and a stone’s throw from the Gaza Strip.

So Lieberman rushed to open the armory, distributed guns to the 12-member security team and coordinated their decisive response amid the unfolding attack.

She placed her squad of kibbutzniks in strategic positions across the settlement and set up ambushes that caught the gunmen off guard and turned the tables on them during their mission to inflict mass casualties.

Lieberman killed five terrorists by herself, while the others gunned down 20 more over four hours as they turned Nir Am into an impenetrable fortress — while nearby kibbutzim suffered heavy losses, Walla News reported.

Could be very well in the Because America thread.

This young lady is a USAFA graduate, and she is the current Miss Colorado also (would like to see her with her crown*). Will not be Miss America, of course - she has the wrong chromosomes for that, in several ways. Now she must choose between the catwalk and a Viper.

* A crown fit for the mineral richness of the State of Colorado:
