    Somewhere there's a retired Red Army arty commander watching this with a half-empty bottle of vodka and smiling to himself about the good ol' days.
    And probably the biggest erection he has ever had in his life!


    Meanwhile there an MLRS battery commander smiles and takes a swig of coffee from his mug just before he gives the command to fire.

    I love the standard-bearer, makes them look like one of Pickett's brigades heading for The Angle.

    Lacking air superiority or any significant air defense, these massive formations will be interdicted loooooong before they get to where they are needed.

    They will be sensed from space, from the air, from ELINT. And they will be paid a visit from the air that will make the Highway of Death look like an Oklahoma traffic stop.

    Yeah, just salvo your AIM-120D's and see what happens . . .

    It was all a bit 'Battle of Berlin' wasn't it? I'm sure that the artillery view of paradise looks a bit like that.

    Really?

    ID4 and Battleship:

    1. Entirely fictional and advertised as such
    2. Have aliens from outer space as the "villain"
    3. Show multiple instances of the "good guys" getting beaten to a pulp by the "bad guys"

    And that's just off the top of my head.

    B-2's sent to perform a mission over South Korea.


    U.S. B-2 bombers conduct extended deterrence mission to the Republic of Korea

    YONGSAN GARRISON, Seoul – Demonstrating the commitment of the United States and its capability to defend the Republic of Korea and to provide extended deterrence to our allies in the Asia-Pacific region, U.S. Strategic Command sent two B-2 Spirit bombers for a long-duration, round-trip training mission from Whiteman Air Force Base, Mo., to the Republic of Korea March 28 as part of the ongoing bilateral Foal Eagle training exercise.

    This mission by two B-2 Spirit bombers assigned to 509th Bomb Wing, which demonstrates the United States’ ability to conduct long range, precision strikes quickly and at will, involved flying more than 6,500 miles to the Korean Peninsula, dropping inert munitions on the Jik Do Range, and returning to the continental U.S. in a single, continuous mission.

    The United States is steadfast in its alliance commitment to the defense of the Republic of Korea, to deterring aggression, and to ensuring peace and stability in the region. The B-2 bomber is an important element of America's enduring and robust extended deterrence capability in the Asia-Pacific region.

    They also make a bigger 'boom'.

    We lost 6 hours of our lives that we never get back from those movies. We only lost 6 minutes with this vid.

The way they bunched up all those guns and rocket launchers was very impressive, I suspect the ROK forces would have been impressed too, as they targeted them. Maybe they can teleport those towed guns to new positions before the counterbattery fire hits? What stopped all those DMZ minefields from going off as that infantry ran through them? Perhaps they are really just propaganda? Of course SK is going to simply cower in fear as the NK unleashs their "cruel" attacks. Perhaps someone over there will sacrifice themselves, for the good of their country, by standing next to the great leader with a belt of explosives wrapped around them? Hitler had some appearently loyal people who were willing to sacrifice themselves for the good of Germany. Is Kim un completely immune to such situations?
    Jay, its natural to compress unit spacings for propaganda films, we do it too.

    I suspect the DPRK thinks the film is actually an accurate depiction of its strength!

    Some of the highlights:

    First day: over 250, 000 pieces of munition will be launched/shot towards the south on the first day.

    Second day: Some 4000 tanks and 3000 troop carriers will launch a massive strike, and the US and ROK airforces can not do anything about it because they will be swept out of the sky because of the superiority of the DPRK aam missiles. . (And yes, it did mention 150, 000 American soldiers becoming POWs)

    Third day: People of Seoul will be dejected and starving and will be ready to give up.

    Conclusion: Pentagon computer simulations have shown the same thing but they are too scared to release the results of the excercise.
    Well....I'm convinced!
