Under Armour Headline Goalie Head Review
The Under Armour Headline is the brand’s first ever lacrosse goalie head and in this post I’ll give my full review of the Headline.
Released in 2014, overall the Headline is a solid 1st entry into the goalie head market and its a recommended goalie head for both advanced and beginner lacrosse goalies.
If you like the shape and performance of the STX Eclipse but are looking for something a little more rigid and durable at the exact same price point, the Under Armour Headline might be the perfect goalie head for you.
Lots of goalies love the Headline for box lacrosse but its also a solid and very underrated head for the field goalies as well!
Let’s jump right into the full Headline review.
Under Amour Headline Goalie Head Review
When you view the Under Armour Headline next to the STX Eclipse it’s pretty easy to see which head Under Armour chose to model.
The face shape, open sidewalls, and side profile of the two heads mirror one another. That’s probably a good thing for Under Armour because the STX Eclipse is one of my favorite goalie heads.
Given that the UA Headline is based on the STX Eclipse it features many of the same benefits you’ll find with the Eclipse. Namely good handling, solid rebound control, and ability to string up a nice pocket for outlet passes.
Given its similar side profile (angled slightly back), the Headline is good at scooping ground balls although its a little thicker in the top plastic. The thin top plastic of the STX Eclipse gives it a slight edge when it comes to scooping up GB’s.
The main difference between the two heads is towards the bottom where the Headline is just a few millimeters wider and noticeably thicker.
The thickness of the Headline is comparable to the STX Shield or the Warrior Nemesis 2. This thickness is going to do a couple of things when it comes to performance.
First, the thicker heads are not as flexible. A sturdy goalie head like the UA Headline benefits goalies in that if a high velocity shot contacts the upper quadrants of the head it won’t bend or rotate but will hold its shape and ensure the save is made.
The STX Eclipse is more flexible and can bend if a high MPH shot hits the right spot of the head. But the flexibility helps in ground balls, clamping, and for digging into the turf on bounce shots.
The thickness of the Headline also gives it just a little more weight than the STX Eclipse. The Headline weighs in at 11.9 ounces and the STX Eclipse at 11.3 ounces. As I’ve said before, it may not sound like much but there is a difference there. Overall the Headline is still on the lighter side – the Warrior Nemi 2 weight 12.4 ounces for comparison.
To reduce the weight a little while still providing that stiffness the Under Armour Headline features vented sidewalls. These vented sidewalls help produce a great strength to weight ratio in this goalie head.
The thickness also provides more durability. I broke two Eclipse’s throughout my college career. I haven’t field tested the Under Amour Headline with the same level of thoroughness as playing everyday but I can already tell the thicker plastic is going to hold up longer than the Eclipse.
As you can see in the picture, the throat of the UA Headline is a lot beefier compared to the Eclipse. According the Under Amour product description this beefier throat reduces rebounds but I’m not sure how, to be honest with you. To me, it’s more about a goalie’s soft hands and proper form to reduce rebounds.
Here’s a side by side shot of the UA Headline vs. the Warrior Nemesis 2:
As you can see the UA Headline has more surface area than the Warrior Nemi 2.
The UA Headline comes in white or black colors.
We already see this goalie head in use at the NLL and it’s my opinion that as Under Armour starts to get more involved in lacrosse (i.e. sponsoring NCAA and MLL teams) the goalies will gladly make the switch to the Under Armour Headline from their current goalie head.
Under Armour Headline Review: Stringing
The Headline comes with the same number of top holes as the STX Eclipse. This gives you the option to string up any type of mesh (12D, 14D, 20D) into the Headline for a great pocket.
While I’m not a great stringer there are plenty on Instagram who love whipping up really nice UA Headlines, such as Redbeard_Lax:
The comparison pic above and the one below comes from one of Redbeard’s beauties. You should also check out his review of the UA Headline.
The sidewall holes on the Headline are a little complicated. They’re larger and more spaced then the Eclipse.
Would have been nice to have a few more sidewall holes for more stringing and pocket options in the UA Headline. But that said, it’s still easy enough to string a good pocket into the Headline.
To get a well channeled pocket on his Under Armour Headline stringing guru Cameron Crowley aka GoalieStrings on IG had to use a quad sidewall which is an advanced stringing technique that a beginner stick ninja (or myself) probably wouldn’t know.
Under Armour Headline Review: Price
The UA Headline is priced competitively. The unstrung version will cost you $75.
That’s the same price as the unstrung STX Eclipse.
The unstrung Nemi 2 will set you back $100 so the Headline is $25 cheaper.
You can buy the Headline here on LacrosseMonkey.com.
Since the UA Headline isn’t as common as the STX Eclipse you probably won’t have much luck finding used versions on Craigslist, Ebay, or Sidelineswap.com but its definitely worth giving that a try if you can’t afford the new version.
If you like the shape and feel of the STX Eclipse but are looking for something a little more stiff and durable, then give the Under Armour Headline a try.
I would call the Headline a sturdier, stiffer version of the STX Eclipse. For exactly the same price.
We may have to add the Under Armour Headline into the mix for the great goalie head debate.

Until next time! Coach Damon

UNDER ARMOUR UNSTRUNG LACROSSE HEAD COMMAND
The Command X takes all the best parts of the other Command heads that came before it, but added a few crucial improvements to help with ball control and shot speed. A shortened throat lets you get your hand closer to the ball, giving you the most amount of feel and ball control.
An asymmetrical sidewall design on the Command X creates a rigid top rail and a flexible bottom rail, generating more flex to help drive the head into the ground without sacrificing scoop or width. The divergent stiff top rail also gives you the edge on ground balls and faceoffs as it lets the Command X dive under your opponent’s stick to give you the competitive advantage. Mixed with Under Armour’s glide scoop with rounded edges to reduce drag on the ground, you’re be a groundball machine in no time with the Command X.
The Command X comes with a revolutionary 4-point handle locking system, eliminating head rattle and providing the strongest connection of head to shaft.

The second generation in UA®’s Command line, the 2.0 utilizes the same durable nylon construction that maintains its strength in any weather condition, while its overall weight has dropped to 4.8 ounces to give you that extra edge when launching shots toward goal.

Leonard Fournette’s 4 TDs lift Bucs, prove Tom Brady right
If the GOAT calls, you answer.
And if the GOAT wants you to join his team, you sign.
Chances are it will all work out if you do.
Exhibit A: running back Leonard Fournette, who had a career-high four touchdowns in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ 38-31 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Fournette continues to enjoy a career renaissance with the Buccaneers, after the fourth overall pick in 2017 looked like a bust and was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars during training camp last year.
Fournette has said in the past that one of the first calls he received after being cut was from Tom Brady — and added he was shocked to hear from the superstar quarterback. Brady reaching out certainly sweetened things, but going to Tampa Bay also seemed like a good landing spot for Fournette, and it’s worked out.
Still just 26 years old, Fournette gave Tampa Bay the road win with his 28-yard touchdown in the closing minute of the fourth quarter, running to his left and into the gap opened by right guard Alex Cappa and tight end Rob Gronkowski.
The score gave him an even 100 rushing yards on just 17 carries. He added seven catches for 31 yards.
Sunday was just the continuation of Fournette’s revival, which began with Brady calling him not long after he was released by Jacksonville on Aug. 31, 2020. Though he had limited touches last regular season, he answered the call when the Bucs needed him in the playoffs, with four touchdowns in the team’s four postseason games. That earned him the nickname “Playoff Lenny.”
Against Kansas City in Super Bowl LV, he totaled 135 yards from scrimmage. That earned him another nickname from teammates: “Lombardi Lenny.”
He gets a lot of those nicknames. May we suggest another? “Payoff Lenny.” With Fournette now just shy of 1,000 yards from scrimmage this season with six games to play, Brady’s call to his fellow Under Armour spokesman to join him on the Gulf Coast keeps paying off.

And he’s not the only one who answered Brady’s call who continues to come up big. Gronkowski, whom Brady lured out of retirement last year, had 123 yards on seven catches, his highest yardage output since the 2018 regular-season opener.
Though he was the centerpiece of their offense in years prior, Fournette was cut loose by the Jaguars after the team couldn’t trade him and reports emerged that he was showing up late to team meetings. Whatever issues he may have had with Jacksonville — and remember, he wasn’t the only one — didn’t make the trip with him down I-75 to Tampa.
On Sunday, he gave a halftime speech, hoping to fire up his team after a lackluster first half.
“I’m like man, you have to have a will and a want. You have to be willing to risk everything, play by play, you have to want to win, want to fight, each and every play. I think they understood that message and came out and played their lights out,” he recounted to media.
Offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich inserted Ronald Jones into the game in the second half, giving Fournette a break, and Jones scored late in the third quarter. Fournette said the rotation helped him when the game was on the line.
“I think Coach B did an excellent job of rotating the backs; I was fresh at the end. RoJo came in and did his job,” he said of Jones. “As a unit, it’s all about winning, no matter what it takes.”
He likely wasn’t complaining too much, but Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said after the game he wished Fournette had run out of bounds before the goal line on his final touchdown, which would have allowed Tampa Bay to kill clock and kick an easy field goal. When Fournette scored there were 20 seconds left in regulation, which isn’t a lot of time. But with Isaiah Rodgers returning the ensuing kickoff 72 yards to the Bucs’ 32, the game got a little uncomfortable for Tampa Bay in an instant.
Once Pierre Desir picked off Carson Wentz’s Hail Mary attempt, any crisis was averted.
Now 8-3 and in command of the NFC South, Tampa Bay might be wise to keep one stat in mind: When Fournette gets at least 12 carries, the team is 11-0.
Payoff Lenny to Playoff Lenny to the return of Lombardi Lenny in L.A.? Fournette may help them get there again.
Central prepares for NCAA football playoff rematch
Story LinksPELLA—It’s a playoff rematch but the Central College football team hopes it’s not a repeat when Wheaton College (Ill.) visits Saturday for a second-round NCAA Division III playoff game.
The teams also staged a second-round clash in Wheaton, Illinois in 2019. The Thunder took command early in dominating Central 49-13.
Game time is noon at Ron and Joyce Schipper Stadium.
Many of the faces are the same on both squads. At 10-1, Wheaton is ranked No. 9 in the AFCA Division III Coaches’ Poll and No. 6 in the D3football.com Top 25. Central, 11-0, is ranked No. 10 by the AFCA and No. 8 by D3football.com. Wheaton advanced last week by rolling up a 63-31 home-field victory over Aurora University (Ill.) while Central outscored No. 17/12 Bethel University (Minn.) 61-35 at Schipper Stadium.
Wheaton’s only loss was a 20-7 decision Sept. 18 against No. 1-ranked North Central College (Ill.), the 2019 Division III champion. No other opponent has come closer than 30 points against the Thunder.
Coach Jeff McMartin doesn’t want his players dwelling on the 2019 loss, but they’re also not forgetting it. It was a disappointing ending to a championship season for the Dutch, 15 of whom opted to return for a fifth year of competition determined to make a better showing.
“Our approach is, let’s learn from it but not live in it,” McMartin said. “We did some things that day that made it really hard for us to win a football game. Wheaton has a great team again and there are certain things you just can’t do if you’re going to beat somebody like that.”
The hurdles get higher each week in the playoffs.
“This is the next step,” McMartin said. “We’ll need to improve from last week’s game and that’s our goal.”
The bracket–The winner of Saturday’s game advances to meet the winner of a second-round contest Saturday at Whitewater, Wisconsin between the No. 3-ranked University of Wisconsin-Whitewater (11-0) and DePauw University (Ind.) (9-2). The quarterfinal will be played noon Saturday, Dec. 4 at a site to be determined. The 16 remaining playoff teams are playing for the right to compete in the championship contest, the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl, played Friday, Dec. 17 at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium at Canton, Ohio. That game will air on ESPNU.
Ticket information–Tickets are $10 for adults with seniors and students paying $5. Children age 2 and under are admitted free. Spectators viewing the action from beyond the fences surrounding the stadium must purchase a ticket. Advance tickets can be purchased in the athletics office in P.H. Kuyper Gymnasium Wednesday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and Friday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Tickets will also be available when stadium gates open at 10:30 a.m. Saturday. All tickets are general admission and all transactions are cash only.
On the air and online—The Voice of the Dutch, Trevor Castle, will call Saturday’s action on KRLS-FM (92.1), with NFCA Hall of Fame softball coach George Wares providing the color and Andrew Schneider reporting from the sidelines. A special KRLS playoff pregame show will air at 11 a.m. The broadcast can be accessed through www.kniakrls.com or directly at rdo.to/krls. It’s also accessible via mobile device with the KRLS app available through iTunes and other outlets.
A video webcast of the action and live stats can be accessed via the Central athletics website at athletics.central.edu. Twitter users can get updates through @CentralDutch.
Castle also hosts “Coaches’ Corner” with coach Jeff McMartin each Monday at 6 p.m. on KRLS and is available on demand online.
Playoff experience— Central, which captured a record 32nd American Rivers Conference title, is making its 22nd NCAA Division III playoff appearance. The Dutch won the 1974 NCAA title and finished second in 1984 and 1988. Central is making its second consecutive trip to the to the second round and carries a 23-20 playoff record.
Wheaton is making its 12th NCAA playoff appearance, going 12-0 in first-round games and 17-11 overall.
The series—There was little drama in Central’s 2019 playoff encounter as Wheaton dominated the Dutch from the opening whistle, launching a 35-point first-quarter assault. Hawkins finally threw a TD pass midway through the second quarter to get Central on the board but Wheaton was in command 42-7 at halftime and 49-7 after three quarters. Central’s final score came on a 44-yard Hawkins pass with just 36 seconds remaining.
But Central leads the teams’ all-time series 2-1, posting wins in 1939 and 1940.
The coaches—The Wheaton head coach has changed since the 2019 meeting with Central. Jesse Scott, who arrived as offensive line coach in 2012, became recruiting coordinator in 2013 and took over as offensive coordinator in 2016, was named head coach following the 2019 season. Scott is 10-1 as head coach and 1-0 in playoff games.
Dutch coach Jeff McMartin, a member of the AFCA Board of Trustees, is in his 18th year, posting a 139-42 mark. He’s making his sixth playoff appearance as head coach with a 4-5 record.
The Thunder—Wheaton brings one of the nation’s most physical squads to Pella. The Thunder squad has posted three shutouts while limiting opponents to an average of 12.3 points a game. The Wheaton defense has made headlines card yet the team also ranks 10th in Division III in total offense with 500.4 yards per game while ranking 17th in total defense, yielding just 246.8 yards. Wheaton ranks fifth in scoring (50.1 points), 11th in rushing offense (264.5 yards) and 14th in first downs (254).
Senior quarterback Luke Anthony, who threw five TD passes against Central in 2019, is back. He’s completed 158 of 258 passes (.612) with 24 touchdowns and four interceptions, gaining 2,301 yards. He ranks 20th in passing efficiency (163.8) and 23rd in yards per completion 914.56). Anthony has also rushed 43 times for 143 yards and two touchdowns.
“He’s continued to improve,” McMartin said. “He’s a dual-threat guy and he throws it very well. He runs well, he extends plays, he can scramble and he can hurt you on zone reads..”
Powerful running back Giovanni Weeks has gained 1,365 yards on 161 carries, which ranks 10th in Division III. His 8.48 yards per carry ranks second nationally and he’s rushed for with 20 touchdowns, which ranks fourth. Back-up Sam Singleton has gained 623 yards on just 67 carries (9.3 yards per carry) with eight scores. Receiver Adam Terrini has 45 receptions for 622 yards and nine TDs while tight end Spencer Peterson has 13 touchdown catches, which ranks 10th nationally, among his 31 receptions for 481 yards.
“Their tailback is unlike any tailback we’ve seen,” McMartin said. “He’s got breakaway speed. He doesn’t have a lot of carries but he has a lot of yards. He’s outstanding and their receivers are all very solid. They run really good routes and have great speed.
“Their tight end (Peterson) is a transfer and he’s 6-6 and he’s very good.”
The Wheaton defensive front is nearly impenetrable, yielding a miserly 37.2 yards a game on the ground, which ranks second in Division III. The Thunder defense also ranks first nationally in quarterback sacks (4.36 per game), fifth in tackles for loss (8.8), 28th in interceptions (15) and eighth in defensive touchdowns (6). Wheaton is 27th in fewest first downs allowed (149).
Middle linebacker Ryan Schwartz has 82 tackles with three interceptions while defensive tackle Dallas McRae was the D3football.com national defensive player of the year in 2019 and has 44 tackles with 19 tackles for loss including 10 sacks, along with five pass breakups. Nose tackle Jake Holaday has nine sacks and eight breakups and defensive end River Shindledecker has 7.5 sacks and seven quarterback hurries. Cornerback Caleb Egbert has four interceptions, returning three for touchdowns.
“They are still very big up front on both sides of the ball,” McMartin said. “They’re not giving up a lot of rushing yards to anybody. They work hard to make you one-dimensional and from tackle to tackle on either side of the ball, they have very good football players. They’re big, strong and fast.”
McMartin said the defensive front is talented enough that it doesn’t need to blitz, but still will.
“They keep you off balance,” he said. “They do pressure a lot. Their secondary is so sound that they can bring pressure and still feel like they can cover people up. They will bring pressure and that’s part of stopping the run game but also speeds up the clock for the quarterback, making him uncomfortable.”
Wheaton excels in special teams play as well, sharing the national lead in blocked kicks with 12 and ranking 21st in kick return defense (14.44 yards). Outside linebacker Jalen Shaffer leads Division III with eight blocked punts. Punter John Bickle and kicker Tommy Gallagher were both first-team all-conference picks. Bickle is averaging 44.6 yards per punt while Bickle is 9-of-14 on field goal attempts with a long of 52 yards.
Wheaton had 15 players receive all-conference honors.
First-round lessons—McMartin saw much he liked in Central’s first-round win over Bethel (Minn.).
“I was really happy with the way we played and competed,” he said. “Obviously that’s the most talented team through 11 games that we played and I was happy with how hard our guys played for four quarters. We had some really good performances and it was a great atmosphere.
“It’s like every other sport when you play on the national stage, you’re playing a higher-quality opponent. There are things you must do in order to advance. You need to get used to everyone being that quality and stay mentally focused, not letting that get you off your picture.”
Seven games at Schipper Stadium—Central is playing its seventh home game in a season for the ninth time. The Dutch played eight home games in 1987 and 2007. Every opportunity to play at Schipper Stadium is special, McMartin said.
“The players are really looking forward to playing at home,” he said.
This will be the 28th NCAA playoff game played at Schipper Stadium, which was known as A.N. Kuyper Stadium prior to 2006.
Nation-leading numbers–Central leads all NCAA divisions in total offense (609.3 yards per game), passing efficiency (205.28) and first downs (339) while also leading Division III in passing offense (400.7 yards) and completion percentage (.730). The Dutch are second in Division III in scoring offense (58.6), fifth in punt return defense (0.43 yards), sixth in Red Zone offense (.899) and 17th in turnover margin (plus 1.27).
Individually, quarterback Blaine Hawkins (5th-year, Ankeny) leads all NCAA divisions in touchdown passes (57). He tied his own school mark by throwing seven more against Bethel Saturday and is tied for second in Division III history for a season, four shy of Brett Elliott of Linfield (Ore.), who set the mark with 61 over 13 games in 2004. Hawkins, who was recently named a Gagliardi Trophy semifinalist and received the American Rivers Offensive Player of the Year Award for the second time, also leads Division III in passing efficiency (211.3), passing yards (3,755) and points responsible for (372, the all-time NCAA record). He’s second in completion percentage (.733) and total offense (363.4), fourth in yards per pass attempt (10.46) and 15th in completions per game (23.9).
Receiver Tanner Schminke (5th-year, Boone) is the new Division III leader in touchdown catches (17) while Jeff Herbers (junior, Urbandale, Des Moines Christian HS) is tied for 10th with 13. Schminke is second in receiving yards (1,270) and 19th in total touchdowns (17). Running back Jason Hopp (senior, Earlham) is 21st in rushing yards per carry (6.55), cornerback Brayden Egli (senior, Saint Charles, I-35 HS) is 34th in interceptions per game (0.5) and blocked kicks (2), defensive end Hunter Maddy (5th-year, Mystic, Centerville HS) is 24th in fumbles recovered (2) and kicker Logan Sunvold (sophomore, Monroe, Southeast Polk HS) is ninth in field goal percentage (.818) 19th in scoring (106) and 26th in points per game (9.6).
Linebacker Josh Van Gysel (sophomore, Anthem, Ariz., Boulder Creek HS) had two interceptions Saturday and has four for the year, one behind Egli. Van Gysel is the team tackles leader with 67.0, including 2.5 for loss. Egli has 64.0 with 3.0 for loss, four breakups and two blocked kicks. Free safety Brody Klein (sophomore, Rainier, Wash.) has 59.0 stops with two interceptions. Lineman Blade Durbala (5th-year, Blairstown, Benton HS) was named the American Rivers defensive player of the year last week and has 40.0 tackles with 11.0 for loss and 5.5 sacks. Maddy has a team-high 12.0 tackles for loss with 9.5 sacks.
More Blaine, more records, more milestones—Hawkins passed another significant milestone Saturday, going over the 11,000-yard mark in career passing. He’s now thrown for 11,082 yards and compiled 12,814 yards total offense. A little perspective: The previous career passing yards mark at Central was 6,181 by Tim Connell from 2004-07. He and Hawkins are the only two quarterbacks in Dutch history to throw for more than 5,000 career yards. Hawkins’ season mark of 3,755 by itself would rank 10th on Central’s career charts.
Also Saturday Hawkins broke his own 2019 season record for pass completions of 252. He has 263. He already owns school marks for game, season and career passing yards, completions, completion percentage, touchdown passes and total offense. His performances have even led to the creation of some new categories, as he threw for six or more touchdowns in six straight games earlier this year and has thrown for five or more scores in his last eight games. He’s passed for 300 yards or more six times.
Team record rewrite–The Dutch have broken team season marks for passing yards (4,408), pass completions (319), first downs (340), first downs passing (196), total offense (6,702 yards), all-purpose yards (7,701), touchdowns (89), extra points (83) and points (651). They’re on pace to break the scoring margin record (339 points, 1994), average scoring margin record (34.5 points, 1989). Currently the Dutch have a scoring margin of 463 points and an average scoring margin of 42.0 points. The team’s completion percentage (73.0) and pass efficiency rating (205.28) would also be season marks.
Obscure stat of the week—It’s not one that comes up often in conversation, but the NCAA maintains a record for the highest percentage of passes attempted for a touchdown in a season with a minimum of 300 attempts. The Division III mark of 14.0% was set by Brett Elliott of Linfield in 2004 (61-437). It’s being threatened by–wait for it–Hawkins, who is currently throwing for TDs at a 15.8% clip (57 of 359)
First-half fireworks–Central’s starters have played throughout the first half of each game and have displayed remarkable efficiency. The Dutch have scored touchdowns on their opening possession in 10 of 11 games and have reached the end zone on 58 of 81 first-half possessions, while booting field goals on four others. Central has scored six or more first-half touchdowns in seven of the 11 games and have only 11 first-half punts.
Notes—Central is 8-6 in NCAA second-round games. Of course, the nature of second-round games has evolved as the playoff field size has changed. In 1974, there were only four teams selected to the playoff field and Central’s second-round win was a 10-8 victory over Ithaca College (N.Y.) in the Amos Alonzo Stagg Bowl for the national title…Central has scored 49 or more points in eight of the season’s 11 games…Hawkins has thrown 40 or more passes in each of the last three games, but only once in the first eight. His season low was in a 69-13 runaway over Kalamazoo College (Mich.) Sept. 11, throwing just 16 times but completing 15 for 227 yards and four scores… …Only one of the remaining 16 teams in the NCAA playoff field was unranked in the final regular-season AFCA Division III poll. Unranked DePauw University (Ind.) travels to the No. 3 University of Wisconsin-Whitewater Saturday.

Chapter 7:Cursed chip(Filler part 2\2) – Just Another Tale
Author: You guys were this good or bad. Please tell me what you think and how I can improve. If this is confusing tell me because I have a second version
Individually the men weren’t strong but their coordination was just outright dangerous to go against.
Increasing the power of my attacks I aimed for one of their stomachs but my hand had almost been burned off by the heat.
The suits were different from Adams. They weren’t bulky but rather slender. In the Middle was a red flame element gem that releases heat.
I admit I was in pain right now and my hand was bleeding. It was bad but I still could move.
“Please leave the area with us. Under General, Kairo Name you under arrest.”((Head security guard.)
In the middle was a guard with a different helmet than the others. His mask was more so a squid than a shark.
I wonder if that had any type of importance but I need to kill them first.
But that was harder than said when done.
His ki level was the highest in the room right now and it was making me so sick to my stomach I might puke soon.
At birth without training seeing Mana Ki and People’s auras appeared to me as particles.
For fighting, it wasn’t useful so my clan saw me as an F-rank soldier in our army.
But I made the best of it. Ues it did no damage but I could predict the gathering speed and how powerful an ability it spell could be.
I tried my best to make myself go up in the ranks but I failed and if I go captured here. I would be a laughing stock.
Full knowing this I stilet my guard down and a guard got me from behind. I tried to break away but he held me in a powerful bind.
At this point, I think his arm was tightening around my neck because my heart rate was going faster and faster as my vision fade.
I didn’t want to go back to that place. Into the void was dangerous. But I survived at a cost.
The evil gods themselves possessed me so I could survive and if I died not before I completed my goal.
” I will regret it.”(Samael)
So what the heat from the suit was burning me alive. So what I was losing. That doesn’t matter because I’ll prove them wrong. I’ll prove them all wrong.
“Let go of me. Let go of me now rawr.” (Samael.)
I tried to prevent it but my adrenaline was over the roof now and there was no controlling it.
Feeling the crackling getting louder and louder I released a red thunderbolt that had come for the ground.
The guard’s eyes widen as he looked at me and may change but I could only scoff. I did my best to avoid using any powers.
Forcing his arms open I broke out of his grip. He tried adding my force to his arms but at this point, I was tired of it.
“You never let go so I will show you what I am made of then.”
Feeling my anger raising through the roof wings with sharp spikes at the end sprouted from my back knocking him in the wall.
Black every surrounded my body well-rounded it in a cloak of black flames.
Knowing I went too far I tried my best to go back to normal but the black energy had sunk into my hands turning them completely black.
It was too late. My pale skin felt a skin-crawling boney chill up my back.
It wasn’t an enemy but the seal trying to take away my demonic power.
” Hey I am Samael.”(Samael)
“That’s a lie we know who you are brat. Why do you think we have this armor. Think of it as the equivalent of a hulk buster.”(Head guard)
The head guard’s foot hit the floor creating a crack in it. For a minute I saw the red eyes do the void glaring at me
If I just stopped holding back I could become more powerful. But I refused to release more of the seal than I already have. I need to let it slow defuse itself.

“You’re a fake and it’s so funny. Do you think you are on my level?.” (Head security board)
Throwing his sword at me the head of the security guard used his other hand to summon particles for a spell.
“You don’t even match up to them. Is it because of what you are? Or what you have in you?”(Security guard)
” I know what your clan leader told you but come on no one cares about you.”(Security Guard)
“If you won’t say anything fine. DIE YOU, DEVIL!!!.” (Head Security Guard.)
The head security guard launched a large red flaming ball at me. It was at least an A-tier spell.
I wanted my body to move out the way but it wouldn’t move. It was like it was”‘ following my command anymore.
There was nothing more pleasing to me them watching people suffered and right not that guard was scared out of mind
“So you said it was going to kill me correctly.” (“Samael”????)
The head guard’s face was gone in my eyes as he blurred out I tried to make my way to him.
I was scared of myself. I knew why everyone hated me. I knew I will never be accepted for the blood that ran through my veins but.
“Even so you have sinned now. So you will pay.” (“Samael”???)
That voice wasn’t my voice. What’s happening to me. Let me out please someone help.
Mom dad it’s dark. I hate. I want to kill it. I want to rid the world of darkness.
“So you called me a devil.”
My adrenaline is up again I can’t control myself anymore. Nothing can be done.
“This conversation is over. I will show you the flames, you fakers want.”
I waved my hand in a circular motion coming out from it was a black Blade. Inscribed on it were blood-red markings.
At the end of it, the scabbard was a blue skull. The skull had a blue gem in its eyes and a red one in the other. In its mouth was a purple gem.
“No matter what forms it takes my sword cuts anything in its path. I made a promise to my grandfather. but you. Well, I have made nothing to you.” (“Samael”???)
“That’s D-.” (The head guard.)
“Trash doesn’t get to say its name now may you rest in hell.”(” Samael”????)
As I walked away I took the head of the security guard head as a trophy with me. Maybe this mission momma and papa will praise me.
“Hey, chile how are you.” (???)
As I looked at general Kairo who was now just coming out of the elevator I raised my head.
He was a tall muscular old man with blue eyes. He had long gray hair and a beard cover his chest almost. His teeth were fangs like a shark and his aura.
“Your not human .”(Samael)
As I looked at his aura it wasn’t green but yellow caller like a god. But the only God in Atlantis should be Poseidon
Jumping away as fast I can I braced myself for battle. I came here because my clan’s leader told me to.
” I’m not here today to die . So please no more fighting and get out of my way. I proved my point..”(“Samael”)
As I looked for an opening there was no way out because this was massive. the monster was blocking my way out
“You killed my men little one. Who are you?” (Kairo)
Looking at him now I know my clan leader sent me here on a death wish. Maybe they didn’t want me to be alive.
‘If that is the case then I should just murder everyone.’
Kairo smiled at me but I could tell he knew or at least had his guesses of who I was but currently, that didn’t matter.
“You are from the demon clan clan.No those wings look like a dragon.” (Kairo)
I need to move but where could I even go at this. point. What could I even do in this situation?
“Are you mute?” (Kairo)
As Kairo sized me up he laughed viciously. It echoed throughout the chamber to the point the room was quacking. For a minute I was afraid the room would cave in.
“That sword you have is from our old armory. Are you here to return it. I remember some barbarian forcefully taking it from me. But first [𝕎𝕒𝕥𝕖𝕣 𝕊𝕡𝕚𝕣𝕒𝕝].”
Water was appearing around my body slowly consuming me. I still haven’t thought of what to say or what to even do.
Breaking free from the water spiral wasn’t possible but I could at least make a life with me. But the spell itself never forms.
“What clan are you. Say it!!! Who is your leader so I can place them in the depths of hell with you little one.”(Kairo)
All I could do was smile at this point I had no choice.
” Thomas Roberts.”(Samael)
As I said that hell flare burned a piece of paper with a red rune imprinted on it with the entail TH.
“Wait n-.” (Kairo)
From the ground, red thunder came and hit the roof breaking it into pieces.
Raising from it was a man with long black hair. His red eyes stared only at his goal.
“So are you going to grab my clanmate like that or will you them let go. ” (Thoams)”We have a lot to talk about Kairo..”
The man named Thomas was happy seeing his Friend Kairo but Kairo himself was scared.
“What do you want.” (Kairo.)
The instant our clan leader came I ram to him to show him the head security guard head.
“Can I bring it home?'(“Samsel”)
” Samantha how long are you going to copy my son Tyson’s appearance. It’s very insulting to gaze at.”(Thomas)
As the clan leader walked toward Head general Kairo the student could only whisper.
They had only heard legends. of a clan whose clam leaders controlled red thunder at their will.
These powerful beings were the last defense of the human race.No one knows where they came from but the gods feared them.
But we came from somewhere the gods couldn’t even hope to reach and that is why they feared us. Our family came from the Celestial world.
Listening to my clan leader I transformed into my regular body. As my hair went back to purple and my body went back to short I watched as the clan leader used blood spikes to pin Kairo Against the wall.
“Now let’s get started. Where’s my son.” (Thomas)
“I don’t know he’s dead Thomas we both saw the corpse. Why do you think I’m even doing all this to prevent all of this.”
As Thomas gazed at the man he looked pissed as could be at Kairo. For some reason, he thought he was lying
“Then why is your godchild’s chip missing with its system attached!! You are the only one who would know the location other than me.”(Thomas.)
Thomas growled deeply at Kairo as he held his grip tighten.
“Your joking I have it under…..Harry hasn’t contacted me. I never even told him what was in the box. It even has a transportation rune on it. So if opened it would Transport. and in its place no matter when or where it would be gone “(Kairo.)”Thomas if that chip is gone. Please kill me now because I failed in guarding it but I want to know how you know.”
Thomas put Kairo down and took out a red and blue spiderman doll. On its back was a glowing purple light.
No one knew the significance of this but Kairo, Samantha, and Thomas
” Boys I’m quitting the Army.”(Kairo)
As Kairo turned around his beard and hair looked to be growing more and more riled up.
“Let get to searching from this damned cursed chip.” (Kairo)

We urgently “saddle” a couple of armored vehicles and rush along the concrete road to the north, towards Herat, right into the approaching mountain twilight … here from the old shelling.The columns, in fact, are no longer there – as long as they could have washed away on all the remaining wheels. It is worth, however, the BRDM escort and beat itself with a machine gun directly into a huge boulder, which is in front of him in 10 – 15 meters. Sparks from bullets are flying! I hit the armor with the butt of a machine gun, the shooting stops, a disheveled head appears from the hatch:
– What ah? Beating where, m … ?!
– Into the “spirits”!
– What the hell, “spirits”! They probably got out of here for half an hour!
The head with the concept is hidden in the iron belly of the armor, and there is nothing else to do here: fortunately, not a single car burned down, only some of the drivers were hooked a little – they were taken to the medical unit.We go back and somewhere halfway we stumble upon an oncoming convoy of infantry fighting vehicles: the “alarming” company of the 3rd battalion is in a hurry to save the same column from the shelling. There are habitual thoughts about the efficiency of the actions of the “spirits” and ours, how much solarium is wasted like this, and how many more belated bullets will be planted in the surrounding stones and boulders. It was almost completely dark …
But once before dark a column comes from Herat, and the commander of our detachment, Captain Alexander Logachev, jumping off the armor, commands:
– Carry one into the barrel, the other into the tent!
And in our living cistern (in the north they are called beams) a soldier drags a large box.We open – mom is honest! – gingerbread, which until now have not been seen anywhere in local and even Kabul military stores.
– This was taken to the divisional store for the authorities. And the “spirit” planted a grenade in the car – boxes were scattered all over the pass. Our column followed, my armor first. Lo and behold, two boxes lie right in the middle of the road. I think, why should they be wasted? Load, I say to the soldier, and go on, ”the commander says with a rather smiling face.
Perhaps these were the most delicious gingerbread in my life.Moreover, until the very replacement, nowhere here, and even more so in Kandahar, they did not come across to my eyes. And I haven’t heard from others either. But on the other hand, we knew for sure, albeit by chance, that not only the Dutch fizzy “Sisi”, but also simple Soviet gingerbread were brought here. Probably not only them: they said that even beer! The divisional authorities will not let you lie.
Chapter 78 – Reincarnator / Reincarnator – Read online on light novel.rf
Hansu began to madly destroy the armor in front of him.
The clone gritted his teeth as he stared at the attacks pouring down on him.
“Damn! This is really annoying! ”
The Thousand Soldiers’ armor could not be weak.
Obviously, this is so, since this armor was created to protect the king.
Being protected by the Armor of the Thousand Soldiers and armed with the mechanisms inside the armor, the king could command an army.
Although the armor matched the level of the King’s treasure, it was impossible for him to defeat this guy with his current body, given that he has no soldiers and the Seven Star Marble does not work due to the mana code.
“It won’t work. We need to get out. ”
The clone continued to grind its teeth.
The guy here was in no hurry.
While the Armor was still protecting him, he would definitely be beaten to death in the end.
He can’t die in a place like this.
“I can’t lose.”
He did not even know where and what his original was doing.
But what he saw seemed to be enough to understand that he had not achieved his goals.
Since what happened would never have happened if he were alive.
“I can’t die here … for the 1.6 billion people who need me.”
He came into this world with only one soul because of this.
And for this he fought against all the Elvenheims alone.
For the survival of your race.
“I’ll finish this.”
The clone closed its teeth.
“Damn! .. Since I don’t want to give up, Thousand Soldier Armor… “
The clone called out:
– Thousand Soldier Armor Sequence.
As soon as the words were heard, the armor around the clone began to disintegrate at an insane rate.
Then she headed for the glow of the golden blade, began to shatter it, and reached straight for Hans.
The silvery scales were quickly transferred to Hansu’s body. And soon his body was completely covered with the Royal Armor, the Armor of the Thousand Soldiers.
Hansu tried to move, but the silvery armor became a prison and prevented him from moving.
Inheritance of the Force.
The stage during which the Thousand Soldier Armor checks the wearer for fitness.
He gained power over a similar Armor by going through the same process.
The person wearing the armor will pass a qualification test to become the owner of the Armor of a Thousand Soldiers while inside it.
Even considering that seven out of ten usually die during this dangerous process, he has no doubts that Hansu will succeed.
The clone quickly turned his head, as he saw the armor already beeping.
If this guy can put on the Armor, his combat power will reach somewhere around 10th level.
Although he will not be at level 12 like the Catastrophe Fish, he will be strong enough to withstand an entire castle and its inhabitants.
If a hundred oppose him, the entire hundred will be destroyed.
“Escape by teleportation.”
Since the Devouring and Erupting Root has ceased to function, it is now possible to teleport.
Even if he is a clone and does not have a World Tree leaf, it was still possible for one body to teleport using the cells in its body.
“I think … I can’t get the Sacred Stone Fragment.”
The clone frowned.
The Sacred Stone Fragment had a lock preventing teleportation through the World Tree to prevent theft.
It was obvious that it would be a disaster if some lunatic charged up and teleported along with the Divine Stone Fragment.
The clone rushed up madly.
He wanted to put the Sacred Stone Fragment back into the All-Devouring and Erupting Root, but he could be caught if he did.
The clone, having run past the main body of the All-Devouring and Erupting Root, laid its hands on the Root of the World Tree, which was located above.
The World Tree Root, which regained its color a little after the All-Devouring and Erupting Root disappeared, activated in response to the Clone’s body.
– See you again!
The clone gritted his teeth when he saw that the guy was already finishing putting on his armor.
He and the guy are incompatible.
It seemed that the guy was collecting Relics and Fragments of the Sacred Stone.
He needed these Relics and Sacred Stone Fragments for his race.
“Damn! How could the main body be defeated? ”
The last memory in his head was the transmission of genetic information to the All-Consuming and Erupting Root.
He had no way of knowing what the Original did after that.
Since the World Tree dried up and Elvenheim was destroyed, it seemed that his goals were almost achieved.
But why is none of his race here?
“First … I will go to the flower.”
After which the body of the clone completely disappeared.
Soon the silver armor stopped making screeching sounds and pressed on Hansu’s body, as if trying to crush; she stopped.
After which it quickly disintegrated and began to gather in his hand. A small silver key appeared in Hansu’s hand.
Hansu quickly checked the situation to get an idea of the current situation.
“Tsk. He ran away. ”
Judging by the fact that he left the Fragment of the Divine Stone, he left by teleportation.
He would never have left the Fragment if he was just going to run away.
Hansu inserted the key into the air and turned it to the right.Then a black hole appeared in the air.
When he focused, he saw that all the Seven Star Marbles around him began to be sucked into the hole.
“I don’t think I can use this for an attack.”
It is burdensome to maintain Mana Surge alone.
It is not possible for him to use the Seven Star Marble to attack like a Clone when a simple summon hurts his head so badly.
The reason the Clone could use these things to attack is because it is made from the cells of one very special person.
It was best for him to just send this trick into his Relics and fight with them.
Hansu sorted out his thoughts and turned the key to the left.
Silver scales instantly covered Hansu’s entire body. One of the Royal Treasures, there are two of them. Thousand Soldier Armor.
Perhaps due to the others being replicas, the treasure was similar to the Weapon Devourer he knew.
She will grow, devouring artifacts.
It will get harder and harder to change its color, harder and harder to absorb enough to turn it into an artifact for the next zone.
She will evolve when she absorbs many thousands of artifacts.
She absorbs only good materials from these artifacts, and then creates armor that matches the user’s body.
Of course, it is significantly harder and has a much higher mana conductivity than other armor.
And also special.the ability of the Armor of a Thousand Soldiers.
Hansu drew the Forgotten Sword from the Arsenal and lightly slapped it across his body.
As soon as he swung his sword, the surface of the armor changed to a shape suitable to withstand the attack.
It will show increased defense against absorbed weapons or those similar to those absorbed.
It looks like the armor was already absorbing the Forgotten Blade, as there is already resistance against it.
An armor that stays true to its job as an armor.
Although Hansu didn’t have many additional skills yet, he liked the situation.
“I don’t think I need to feed her anymore.”
Apparently, the Armor of the Thousand Soldiers has already reached the peak of the Red stage.
It will be troublesome if it evolves further.
Because his runes were still red.
Hansu stopped hitting the armor and began to consider further plans.
The next target is to kill the third Catastrophe.
There was one more thing to be done near this section of the Root.
“I need to weaken the Ouroboros first.”
The third Catastrophe was so huge that it could wrap itself around the Trunk of the World Tree.
Hans needs a little preparation before fighting this snake.
Hansu quickly ran straight to the bottom of the Root of the World Tree.
As the two Catastrophes that sucked the toxic waters disappeared, the World Tree began to exude an incomparable amount of toxins.
He collected the corpses and quickly began gutting them, since due to the battle there were a huge number of them around the Sprout.
Hansu, combining one with the other, mixed the components in the child’s heart, which he received earlier, and created a black liquid.
Then he chopped the Root of the World Tree with the help of the Galadrian Relic.
Hansu poured the resulting liquid when he saw a stream of toxic water heading towards the inside of the trunk.
The collected poison is not so poisonous on its own, but as soon as it touches the toxic waters, a reaction occurs and it transforms into something fatal to Ouroboros.
There is not much time left before the poison enters the stomach of Ouroboros, which will suck toxic water from the inside of the trunk with the help of its fangs.
Hundreds of thousands of tons of toxic water will turn into something deadly and enter his stomach.
“Although this is not even close enough.”
In fact, he planned to do the same, but, apparently, he will have to change his plans from now on.
Because something unexpected happened.
Despite the fact that the guy is a Clone, he will still have a lot of power, since the cells of the original are present in him.
He knew this from the moment he saw him fleeing by teleportation.
“I don’t know what other tricks he’ll use.”
The only thing he heard from Elvenheim is that the Fallen tried to use the Catastrophes to bring the World Tree into chaos and doom Elvenheim to extinction.
The Elvenheimians also did not know why their King suddenly went mad and tried to kill them all.
“Tsk. There is a limit. ”
The Elvenheims, like the Humans, were a race that had lost and now roamed the Abyss.
Those who lost because they did not know something and because they did not have something.
Of course, there was no way they knew everything about this world.
His job was to go forward, filling in the gaps of missing knowledge.
“So I’m guessing something.”
Hansu had no idea what Clone was thinking or what he wanted to do. He also didn’t know how big the difference in strength between the Clone and the Original was. But it became clear from Clone’s actions.He aimed at the Relic in Hansu’s hands. It follows that the Clone needs this Relic for his purposes and in any case he will come to look for it.
“I don’t know if his appearance will complicate or facilitate the situation.”
He got a lot out of this guy.
With Thousand Soldier Armor, three Relics and Divine Stone Fragments, he would be able to easily break through the Catastrophe Fish’s defense system, while without all of these he barely broke through using poison.
He was generally one level stronger than when using Racial Metamorphosis.
He also received the Arsenal and the artifacts inside it, which is a huge profit.
But he did not know how and when the guy, definitely having evil intentions, would attack him.
“I think I need to look around.”
If this guy is going to use some tricks, clues must appear somehow.
“I think I need a little help.How will they react anyway? ”
People are ready to help each other while they are in the same boat, but everything changes when the ship arrives.
Hansu collected the Divine Stone Fragments and quickly moved towards Michael, who was loitering in the distance.
* * *
Top of the World Tree.
Although dry, it still hovers above the clouds.
A lone flower bloomed on this peak.
It looks small compared to the giant World Tree, but this pink flower can easily reach more than a kilometer in size.
The man stood at the edge of the World Tree, near the place where the flower was attached.
The clone escaped using Teleport, but he was puzzled.
“… Denied entry?”
The living area of the kings, “ Flower “, was covered in tens of thousands of petals, as if he was not going to let anyone enter.
Although it looked beautiful from the outside, the structure was made from a tremendous amount of energy.
If someone with no access touches it, the petals will create fire and burn the intruder.
There are only two people who can freely visit this place.
The King and Administrator who has collected five keys and has the ability to claim the throne.
Even the Five Great Tiger Generals cannot enter here without the King’s permission.
And so Clone was sure.
Since his body was made from the cells of the original, which was the king.
But he could not enter.
If he had not stopped because of an ominous apprehension in the middle of the way, he would have already been burned.
“Damn it … It happened.”
He believed that memories were useless, but in situations like this, he could only regret the lost memories.
Now there is only one road.
“I have to collect all the keys.”
This guy has three Relics.
I need to kill him to collect them all.
And I need the strength to do it.
Power not made of tricks, but powerful enough to crush this guy in an instant.
“Teleportation … will be a little difficult now.”
The load on the body was too high, as it teleported using only its powers, without leaves.
But he has no time to wait for recovery.
“We must go to Ouroboros.”
The clone began to run quickly down the trunk of the World Tree.
And Clone thought on the way down.
Although he had no memories, reality showed him that his race was not here.
The original is clearly lost.
“The losing original is no longer qualified. I have to … Get this name now. ”
The clone thought of the real owner of his body and memories.
The person who was nicknamed the Last King of Elvenheim in this world.
“ Aruntelheim. “
No, you no longer need to use this name.
The name of some ancient times.
The name he had before the hopes of his race ended and he was born in Elvenheim, while his race, “ Akaron “, was doomed to extinction by great catastrophe.
“ Tequilon. “
” Now … I am Tequilon. ”
Tequilon began to descend even faster as soon as the self-digging ended.
He needs to get the power of Ouroboros, a giant snake wrapped around the Trunk of the World Tree.
Jack Sparrow at the helm of the “Green Pearl” – In the country
On the eve of participation in the competition, I slept badly: it was minus ten outside, and for the first time I got to be in a tank. The officers warned: dress warmly.I put on everything I could find, buttoning my jacket with difficulty. I can’t even bend, where should I go to the tank? But then she was delighted – no, no, no.
We are driving out of town, circling a little in a pine forest and suddenly bumping into the inscription “Stop, they are shooting here!” – a barrier, anti-tank hedgehogs, a man with a weapon in camouflage. Here is the Pogonovo checkpoint. Judging by the plate, it is here that the combined-arms training range of the third motorized rifle division of the 20th army begins, where tankers from the Voronezh, Belgorod, Bryansk and Smolensk regions compete from Monday to Friday.
Major Igor Ivantsov commands “Forward!”© Kristina Brazhnikova / TASS
If it were not for the plates, I would not have immediately realized that this black soil, plowed hundreds of times by tank tracks and tightly frozen with ice build-ups, is the very field on which, along an uneven circle a little more than six kilometers long, to each crew of the T-72B3 tank you have to go through three times. Plus one lap for every shooting miss. So the main thing, as in life, is to see the goal and not to smear too much.
On the left is a sign – “Tank director”.“That’s the name of the place where tank biathlon shooting is carried out,” a conscript soldier explained to me on the run. And for sure: three tanks froze at the start, aiming the barrels of their guns in the direction of the hills with targets on wooden frames. These targets are visible only through binoculars.
To the right – a sign “Tankodrome”, and behind it are ditches, pits, a corridor of hundreds of burning tires, a wall of black smoke, various “snakes”, a track bridge, slopes and bumps. The wind blows away the cap with the hood, hands immediately stiffen even in two pairs of gloves – stumbling on the frozen waves of black earth, choking on the burning tires, I think: “It would be nice if the ice spikes did not pierce the sole of the only boots.”
15 tank crews take part in the qualifying stage. Shooting and roar can be heard at the Pogonovo training ground near Voronezh for the second year in a row, since the headquarters of the 20th Army returned to the capital of the Black Earth Region from Monin near Moscow.
It is about 10 km from the outskirts of Voronezh to the Pogonovo military training ground with an area of 300 hectares, and from the city center you can slowly drive here by car in just 15 minutes. The Novovoronezh nuclear power plant is also just a stone’s throw away: 30 kilometers in a straight line.
Tanks rush through the smoke from burning tires at a speed of 70 km / h© Kristina Brazhnikova / TASS
Polygon “Pogonovo” is used by military pilots for bombing and “Aviadarts” years of the Great Patriotic War. Almost all the townspeople remember how the windows trembled and the car alarms went off during the explosions at Pogonovo in the center of Voronezh.In the nearest village of Dzerzhinsky, which is four kilometers from the landfill, glass broke and the foundations of the shacks were covered with cracks.
Not far is the large lake Pogonovo, which ecologists have dubbed Voronezh Baikal: there are almost 20 species of fish in it, even sterlet is found. The military believe that the lake got its name from the word “shoulder straps”, but the local people know for sure that the reservoir was long before the appearance of people in uniform. The lake is four kilometers long: running length means long.
Forward, only forward!
The only salvation from the wind and frost at the test site is a tower: there is a hot battery, tea, at a table in front of a huge window sits Colonel Vladimir Konstantinov, who is also the chief judge of the “Tank Biathlon” and the commander of a tank regiment of the third motorized rifle division.To his right is Major Igor Ivantsov, the commander of a tank battalion. On his sleeve is an armband “Firing Director”, and in his hand is a walkie-talkie with a long, more than a meter, antenna. “You are like a fisherman,” I laugh. “The radio is called” Excitement “, – the major laughs in response, with passion calling the crews of three tanks to communicate.
Shells are carried for loading into a tank, on the left is a tower, from where Colonel Konstantinov is watching© Kristina Brazhnikova / TASS
The wind tears flags: on the tanks red, blue and yellow, above the tower – red and white.As soon as the commander of a tank platoon from the Bryansk region, Senior Lieutenant Sergei Shentsev explained to me that the red flag above the tower is a signal that shooting is allowed, something suddenly gurgled on the right and tracer shells rushed forward, marking smooth trajectories with bright dots. “They have their own competitions -” Suvorov Onslaught “, – the starley nodded at the BMP vehicles.
And then Major Ivantsov, in his surprisingly powerful voice, barked: “Forward, forward!” Three tanks slowly broke away from the level of the white posts, flew up to the red posts, fired volleys towards the hills, and large Colonel Konstantinov jumped up surprisingly easily and rushed out the door to the binoculars on three legs to understand who had demolished that white square in the distance.”Yes, first!” – he shouted, rushing back, and all 20 strict men in uniform, silently crowding in the tower, suddenly laughed like boys.
Targets in wooden frames are visible only with the naked eye© Kristina Brazhnikova / TASS
“How can you imagine that a T-72B3 tank can reach speeds of up to 70 km per hour ?!” Major Ivantsov looked back at me in delight.
And we laughed, happy as children.
At the helm of the “pearl”
Four hours later, I not only learned all the posters within a radius of ten meters: “With the first shot at the target!” but she almost froze her hands and nose, walked around the surrounding hills on foot, learned about Starley Shentsev’s long-term hobby – to plunge into an ice-hole for Epiphany, wrote down a synopsis of Colonel Konstantinov’s brilliant speech about the role of tanks in the Berlin offensive in 1945.
The tires were already burning out, the black smoke turned gray, and the next tank at high speed still flew into the moat and briskly emerged like a dolphin from the sea. A snowball started when three officers suddenly hastily grabbed me by the arms and put me in front of a tank sheathed with dynamic armor bricks, like a transformer in a blockbuster.
At the test site, you cannot do without excitement, even in the name of the radio, even without it at all© Kristina Brazhnikova / TASS
“Can’t get in, can I have a ladder? It’s probably dark inside?” – I muttered, but the officer with three small stars on his epaulettes for some reason laughed, they say, a good joke.And suddenly three lads quickly dragged me onto the armor: one was already opening the hatch, the second deftly squeezed me there, advising me to put my foot behind the back of the chair, and the third carefully held my hand. I found myself in the cramped, warm, semi-darkness – in the place of the gunner. And no windows, not half a meter of space to stretch your legs.
I had to get up, grabbing the hatch, like Captain Jack Sparrow at the helm of his “Black Pearl”, only my “pearl” was green. Here the driver-mechanic Denis Sychev touched the 40-ton colossus from its place so gently that it could not be compared with a ship or even with a taxi.
There is a huge hole ahead – and I squeeze the hatch with stiff fingers in fear. Surprisingly, the tank, as on carriage springs, gently slips through this abyss, as if there is nothing there: it just swayed a little. With each smooth turn and sharp turn it begins to seem to me that there is nothing more comfortable than a tank, if only the wind is quieter
The barrel of the cannon bent towards the forest, inside it smelled of a motorcycle and for some reason tarpaulin boots, the wind whistled in my ears from the speed. I was about to crawl into the semi-darkness of the tank, but the officer stopped me: “Whereaaaaaa! Break your head on the hatch, back!” I understand: the tanker is at the competition in the morning, his face is already gray with fatigue, his eyes are hollow, his cheekbones are sharpened, he is covered in mud and stains of engine oil, and here I am, who needs to be explained where the sight is and how to adjust the shooting.
Special project on the topic
There is a huge hole ahead – and I squeeze the hatch with stiff fingers in fear. Surprisingly, the tank, as on carriage springs, gently slips through this abyss, as if there is nothing there: it just swayed a little. With every smooth turn and sharp turn it begins to seem to me that there is nothing more comfortable than a tank, if only the wind is quieter. I spit on beauty and wrap my head in a bright red thick scarf: it’s good to be beautiful, but healthy is still better.
The whistle of the wind became duller, and we almost returned to the start, when I realized that the senior lieutenant on the right had been leading an excursion all the way, explaining which bump we made the “snake” on, dashed across the bridge and circled the flags in jewelry.”Eh, this section would be at speed!” – my mechanic Sychev sighed. And I thought we were rushing like a bullet.
I was so carried away by tank biathlon that I completely forgot about my notebook, and it remained forever somewhere between targets, icy bumps and the remnants of burning tires.
Elena Ruzanova90,000 Olga Mokrova: It’s not easy to make me cry
What is it like for a woman to work among men, and not just men, but security officers, and even to command them? Olga Mokrova knows this very well.Until recently, she headed the security service of the UN Mission in Somalia, and today Olga at the UN headquarters in New York is engaged in the coordination of security measures. Elena Vapnichnaya talked to her about how she came to the “male profession”.
OM: Even if we look at how many women presidents of countries or women prime ministers or women in general are in the leadership of countries around the world, the results will be far from even 50 to 50, and maybe 15 to 85 percent. where 85 percent of these positions will be held by men.In addition, security, where I work, is generally originally and historically a profession that is specific exclusively to men – just like the military, like the police. And here, too, such a dilemma arises: on the one hand, historically it is a profession in which male colleagues are engaged. On the other hand, if you think about it, are there many women ready to run with a helmet on their heads, with a five-kilogram armor vest, ride in these dusty cars on dusty roads, without water, without any basic hygienic conditions? You cannot smear your face with cream – it is chapped and your hair falls out, because it is not clear what kind of water you drink and under what shower you wash.How many women will be ready to exchange comfort, their home, their usual way of life, leave their children, and go to knead the dirt of these distant countries with their boots?
EB: I know one such woman. Her name is Olga Mokrova. What made her arrange such a life for herself?
OM: Good question. But, I think that I somehow got it from my childhood. When I was still very little and lived in such a small yard in the small town of Nikolaev, I did not have girlfriends, girls, simply because there were no girls around – no one gave birth to a girl except my parents.And so, since childhood, I played with the guys “war”, some “nightingales-robbers”, rounders … all the time some kind of boyish games. I remember I was so worried – I had a very good pistol, but I just couldn’t make that sound of a pistol firing as well as boys do when they run around with a machine gun.
And then, when I was already in the tenth grade, or rather, I was in high school, I learned about this Military Institute, which I was graduating from. This is the Military Institute of Foreign Languages, which was later named the Military Red Banner Institute of the Ministry of Defense.I just could not imagine what happiness it is to go there, because I will walk in uniform, because there will be something so military, paramilitary! And I entered there.
I was very good at shooting a Makarov pistol – that was part of our training. I suddenly realized that combat manuals are such an interesting book! Many girls, my classmates did not understand this, but I really liked it that everything is so logically described – who, when and what does, enters the battle, leaves the battle, and so on.
Well, drill regulations – it was a more boring thing when you had to go there in formation. Nevertheless, our male colleagues, male cadets, loved it very much when the girls, our drill “box”, walked in formation. We had a special march – the “march of the rangers”, which was a little slower in pace. Our box was always the last in parades, because we do not raise the leg that way, and our step is not as long as that of the boys. We swim like swans, that’s why we had a special march for this.
EB: Have your male colleagues brought you to tears?
OM: Male colleagues to tears …
EB: Well, there is also such a stereotype that women cry easier, just a little – they cry right away.
OM: Well, as for my work, then try it, bring me to tears! Now, if I see, for example, how the dog has suffered – its paws are torn off and half its head is missing, I can cry. But if something concerns my work, and especially if I know that I am right, then it is very difficult to bring me to tears.90,000 BTR-82A – test drive – magazine Behind the wheel
Storming the training ground on the new BTR-82A. The armored personnel carrier turned out to be not only easy to operate, but also maneuverable and nimble. Add updated weapons here. Perhaps, before us is the most versatile representative of the armored family.
BTR-82A. Production: Arzamas Machine-Building Plant. In service since 2013.
Tank helmet fastened. Caring military men provided me with it: they take care of the head of a journalist.Attack a hack with civil brains on the armor – you won’t be a hassle. Today I am a member of the crew of the newest BTR-82A. With the commander Ilya and the driver-mechanic Alexander will spend the whole day. Ahead is the road to the landfill – more than twenty kilometers along country roads. I climb into the troop compartment. The door was closed and it became dark. What is happening overboard can only be found out through the narrow sighting devices of observation devices. I’m frantically looking for where to stick the negotiator chip. While I found it, it turned out that the speakerphone works fine in the car.The commander made it clear that we would drive carefully.
LIMOUSINE WITH A CANNON
Anyone who has ever seen the movement of a military convoy may think that army equipment is slow and clumsy. Not an armored personnel carrier! Alexander briskly started and quickly got to the fifth gear. We rush along the country road. I feel that the speed is clearly over seventy. And – the first shock. The smoothness is fantastic! The APC swallows all the irregularities: no shaking, no blows to the tailbone, and no desire to grab onto something. And where is the promised accuracy? Sometimes the driver slows down in front of obstacles, but it turns out to be quite comfortable at full speed.You can lay your head here, but not from the bumpiness. A headset, in fact, is needed as insurance against the contacts of the incompetent with the equipment of an unfamiliar interior. And there is a lot of equipment here – and I study it with interest.
Periscopic observation devices, loopholes, ball bearings for firing, hatch and door handles, pipes of the on-board air purification system. The armor is upholstered inside with gray plastic mats, which are connected with Velcro. Inside each mat there is a multi-layer anti-splinter protection.This is from being hit by shrapnel during the breakdown of the main armor. Second-order dividends: multilayer kevlar pies are good soundproofing. The engine is audible, but its sound does not press on the ears. In addition, when the armor is heated by the sun, it is better to contact the upholstery rather than hot metal.
02Rough terrain with a breeze? Please! Most of all, the smoothness of the ride on the country road is striking.
Cross country with a breeze? Please! Most of all, the smoothness of the ride on the country road is striking.
Benches for motorized riflemen are generally comfortable. For weapons, property and accessories in the design of the machine, their places are provided, so the apparent tightness should not bother. One caveat: my size forty-five paws on the floor between the seat and the board do not fit normally. The feet have to be turned out along the side, the landing is obtained in a half turn. It seems that when the first armored personnel carrier was designed, the descendant of which is the current one, the fighters were lower, and the shoe size was more modest.
A photographer takes over at the training ground. Take after take of the APC overcomes obstacles. Snake between conventional explosion craters – easy! Driving through a pit that simulates a trench is not a problem.
On rough terrain, all-wheel drive is of course included. The steering controls the two front axles. Turning four wheels at once is an unusual sight. What a maneuverable she is, this sixteen-ton machine! Here is the anti-tank ditch. We pass it, at first glance, without difficulty.It always seems that way when the car is driven by an experienced crew – and it turns out that there are many subtleties. It is also necessary to pick up the speed, so as not to strike the front part on the ground on the descent. And at the exit to jerk not too fast so that there is no jump, but also not too slow – otherwise there will not be enough speed. And if the armored personnel carrier stopped on a steep rise of the ditch, getting under way is a whole science. It is necessary not to burn the clutch, and to prevent rolling back in gear, so that the engine does not start in the opposite direction.
04The troop compartment can leave the APC at low speed through the lower part of the integral door. The narrow opening is from the 1980s. Strong guys in modern “Warrior” outfit and with weapons in their hands will need skill for a quick landing.

While filming with a camera, the driver drives the car, sticking his head out the open hatch. He does not see the situation from behind, and when he has to turn around in reverse on a narrow road, the commander helps the mechanic: either dismounts or leads from the armor.
I also liked the proportions of our new armored vehicle with a unified weapon module instead of a traditional turret. I think that Tupolev’s statement about the fact that only beautiful planes fly well is also applicable to armored vehicles.Our armored personnel carrier is beautiful and it rides delightfully.
TAMING THE UNSTRONGING
And now – get behind the wheel! The driver’s workplace is army-spartan. But – nothing supernatural. Steering wheel, gas, brake and clutch pedals, handbrake levers and gearboxes. The main devices are familiar from trucks and UAZs. In a conspicuous place a plate with a gear shift diagram. A bit cramped, but there is enough longitudinal adjustment of the seat.
But there are problems with visibility. The windshield and observation devices are located too low, obviously not for my height (189 cm).Before the eyes is the edge of the armor, on which the hatch rests. It is necessary to go with the battened down. I slide a little on the seat and bend my head slightly – that’s better.
Take by take APC overcomes obstacles. Snake between conventional explosion craters – easy!
05Obstacle course. The armored personnel carrier effortlessly overcomes the trench. The exercise was subdued to me on the first try – I slipped easily in second gear.
Obstacle course. The armored personnel carrier effortlessly overcomes the trench. The exercise was subdued to me on the first try – I slipped easily in second gear.
The engine rumbled. I hear Alexander’s voice in the negotiator: “Get under way with the second.” I turn on the gear – the efforts on the lever are not like in a passenger car, but you do not need to hammer it into place with force. Let go of the clutch pedal. She’s not tight, no problem. Let’s go, and without a jerk. The gas pedal may be a little heavy, but this is a matter of habit. The steering wheel seemed massive, but it is easy to turn it. The APC maneuvers surprisingly obediently.
I didn’t have time to really get used to it, but we are already on the obstacle course.
– To the right, and now to the left, – Alexander commands. Obediently I twist the snake between the funnels. Bliss!
– Gas, gas, do not be shy!
I raise the engine speed from 1600 to 2000. Something blurted out under the soft suspension, and the APC shuddered. I glance over at the driver. He smiles. It turns out that we crossed the trench. How amazing!
06In the front there is a control compartment. Driver’s workplace – with steering wheel and pedals. Shorter drivers are more comfortable: there are no problems with visibility.

Generally there is enough visibility, and I feel like I feel the dimensions of the car. But here Alexander gives the command to turn to the left – and my gaze rests on the opaque armor at the junction of the side and front panels. I understand that there is a lot of space and that there is no one around, but I frantically look for the sight of the extreme left periscope. We turned it over and did it.
The first armored vehicles were famous for the complexity of gear shifting. And this one? I accelerate the car, prepare for a long struggle with the lever … and suddenly deftly shift into third gear. The move is not lost, and without a jerk. I am bursting with pride so much that I brake a little harder than necessary. But it doesn’t really matter anymore. Pass the shortened obstacle course the first time and didn’t count.
An armored personnel carrier is not a spaceship at all. Any driver familiar with a manual transmission can tame it.Especially after a training cycle with an experienced instructor. The armored personnel carrier turned out to be not only easy to operate, but also maneuverable and nimble. Add updated weapons here. Perhaps, before us is the most versatile representative of the armored family. This should be the duty fire means of a motorized rifle subunit, perhaps the most massive armored vehicle in our army. It is a pity, I didn’t manage to try how it behaves afloat and withstands excitement of several points.
10Spectacular frame? Not only.With the hatches closed, the armored personnel carrier will protect the crew, even if this dust is radioactive.

THREE QUESTIONS FROM CIVIL
– What is an APC?
– Armored personnel carrier. Combat wheeled amphibious vehicle for motorized rifle units of the ground forces. The massive workhorse of our army. Reservation – anti-bullet-proof. The armored personnel carrier is designed to transport personnel and provide fire support in battle.It is capable of striking ground, low-flying air and sea targets. Including lightly armored ones.
– What is the difference between an armored personnel carrier and an infantry fighting vehicle?
– Without going into details – the purpose of the machines is almost the same. The difference is in designs. The chassis of the BMP is caterpillar, which means that the permeability is higher. The trump cards of the armored personnel carrier: versatility, mobility, maneuverability, high speed. In addition, the APC is cheaper.
– What’s new in the BTR-82A?
– BTR-82A entered service in 2013.In fact, this is a deep modernization of the BTR-80 model. He has increased the effectiveness of firing on the move, survivability, maneuverability, reliability, resource. The changes affected weapons, sighting devices, communications, observation, orientation. Increased engine power. Anti-splinter and mine protection are installed. The seats of the crew and troops are made on a special suspension, which reduces the impact of the blast wave. To power all systems of the armored vehicle, an autonomous diesel generator with a power of 5 kW is installed in the parking lot.
We thank the commander of the 27th separate motorized rifle brigade for help in preparing the material
The “Lukomorya” has a cheerful spirit
The new collective of the Tomsk Philharmonic is preparing to meet with the public!
– The name is not fabulous, but real, historical, – immediately warns Vladimir Dorokhov, who played the role of a learned cat during our meeting. – The term “curvature” was used in Russia to designate the bends of the sea coast: the bow (bend) of the sea.So we are now living at the bottom of the sea. On the maps of the 17th century, compiled by Western European cartographers, the territory adjacent to the right bank of the Ob Bay was designated as Lukomorye.
On the maps of modern Russia, it is located between the right bank of the Ob in the Tomsk region and the left bank of the Yenisei in the Krasnoyarsk Territory.
The director of the Philharmonic, Marina Alekseevna Sherina, has a book about the Tomsk Lukomorye. This book prompted her the name, and Marina Alekseevna suggested it to us.By the way, this is her idea to organize a band that will play live music on folk instruments. Collective of virtuosos.
Three heroes and a beauty
At the end of December, the idea matured, personified and acquired real and, frankly, textured outlines.
Vladimir Dorokhov (drums) found Bronislav Semichov (balalaika-kontabas), Bronislav invited Sergei Soymenov (button accordion).
All three studied at the Tomsk Music School in the 80-90s (this was the name of the College named after V.Edison Denisov). And although they all had different teachers, different instruments, and they studied in different courses, they were united by a common musical environment. They knew who was worth what.
Bronislav and Sergei have another common line in their biography – the Krasnoyarsk Academy of Music and Theater, which each graduated from in his own time.
Vladimir received higher education at the Novosibirsk Conservatory. Today they are once again united by the College of Music, where they teach, and the Philharmonic, where they work.
In fact, in a week they prepared a number, with which they performed at the concert on December 30th.The composition based on Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Flight of the Bumblebee” simply blew up the hall.
After the baptism of fire, it became clear: “Lukomorya” is to be. But in a different composition.
The duties of the director of the Tomsk Symphony Orchestra and accompanist of percussion instruments performed by Dorokhov like a jealous wife require a lot of attention. Therefore, Vladimir, who contributed to the birth of the team, stepped aside.
And in his place was invited a student of the College of Music, drummer – Vladimir Voroshilov.
Almost at the same time, the house player Yulia Pugacheva, who also studies at the Tomsk College of Music, appeared in the team.
By the way, the connection between the Philharmonic Society and the college, Dorokhov believes, is beneficial to both institutions. The graduates have the prospect of getting a real job, the Philharmonic – to replenish the collectives with young talents.
I also found “Lukomorye” at a rehearsal in the Great Concert Hall. The ensemble will make its debut on the stage of the large concert hall on April 12, artists come to polish their performing skills every night.
During the rehearsals, the concert program is also edited. Folk melodies coexist with classics, the classics are complemented by jazz. But any work is processed in a modern way, stylized according to the capabilities of the instruments and the character of the performers. It turns out its own, original interpretation of even the most famous hit. And it turns out that you can pull out such a rich sound of folk instruments!
– Every musician has something to offer. We discuss and choose together. “Lukomorye” is a collective of individuals.The level of the musicians is high, and we have to use it, – Artistic Director Bronislav Semichov says half-jokingly. – Our style of performance can be called virtuoso. He, of course, heels us a little. Because it is not always correct to often use your advantages. But we are now in the formative stage, therefore we resort to them more often than usual. To declare yourself brightly, enchanting.
Broneslav Vladimirovich is absolutely right about the exceptional professionalism of the team. There are two laureates of international competitions in the ensemble.
Yulia won this title quite recently, in November last year in St. Petersburg, and Sergei has long been holding the laureate title and unofficial status of the best button accordion player in the region. Vladimir Voroshilov, according to Dorokhov and Semichov, is a nugget, although he does not yet have any titles and victories in competitions, but his mentors are convinced that he has everything ahead of him.
Bronislav himself is the first and only person in the history of Russian music education who graduated from the university in the class of double-bass balalaika.“There was no such instrument in the conservatory program. But I managed to convince Professor Averin to introduce it,” Semichov simply explains.
“Bronya plays the double bass, like a violin or domra, plays, that is, owns fine technique masterly”, – says Vladimir Dorokhov. According to Semichov, the accompanist of the drum group of the Tomsk Symphony Orchestra Dorokhov will take part in some concerts.
Nightingales – robbers
– Tomsk has not heard such music and such performance for a long time, since the 80s, – Vladimir Dorokhov convinced me, announcing not only the first concert of Lukomorye, but also emphasizing the peculiarity of the collective – the high quality of live sound combined with tremendous artistry.
Looking at the musicians, I nodded my head in agreement. “Lukomorye” at this moment improvised on the theme “Valenok”. I must admit: I really have never heard or seen such a performance of a folk song.
At first everything went according to the laws of the genre: they began decisively and amicably, but after the introduction the tambourine and the balalaika-contrabass suddenly fell silent, as if passing forward the domra and button accordion.
And now She and He enter into the most tender conversation. They explain their love to each other.But each about something of his own, dear, difficult to pronounce. The lyrical confession does not have time to end, when the cheerful voice of a tambourine is interwoven into the accordion’s speech, and it seems to turn everything into a joke, it is supported by the ironic bass of the balalaika double bass. However, Pugacheva’s lyrical and tender domra and Soiminov’s sensual accordion do not yield to their theme of love. With cheerful enthusiasm they are “re-chanted” by Semichov’s balalaika and Dorokhov’s tambourine.
By the finale, courage completely seized the performers and on its way resolutely swept away all decency.Having reached the degree of merry hooliganism, “Lukomorians” turn the photo session into a mask show.
– Yulechka, give me a “frying pan” (this is how domra is called in the jargon of musicians), – asks the restless Semichov.
A minute later, the whole group of musicians freezes in a silent scene “Raskolnikov kills an old woman-pawnbroker.” With the arrival of Voroshilov – in genres and completely soft-boiled.
– Volodya, come on, make a “helicopter”, – Bronislav is in command.
And the charismatic Voroshilov begins to vigorously twist his head, and at the same time his drumsticks beat the cymbals and drums with the same speed.This is already some kind of rock concert!
And a minute later Semichov, in a fit of passion, falls to his knees and starts scribbling out of his double-bass balalaika …
“We are hooligans, but not to the detriment of the quality of performance,” Vladimir Dorokhov warns me just in case. – Sound quality comes first.
92. The father of tanks | World of Tanks
– What are you thinking about, Monsieur de Saint-Cyr? – with exaggerated cheerfulness, Hans Schmulke turned to the mister adjutant.- Unhappy with Renault UE 57 again?
“Well, why, I’m very pleased,” the Frenchman answered sadly. “The smallest PT in our base, perfectly trained crew, tube masket. To notice this car, you have to drive up close. I, Herr NCO, about something else. There is so much talk about the centenary of the First World War, the British are preparing for the parade in August, loudly declaring their primacy in tank building! I don’t understand why France is worse?
– Uh … – held out to Shmulka. – Let’s be honest: the very first tank was built by the Britons, and they were the first to use the MarkI in combat conditions on the Somme.The French Republic lagged somewhat behind the allies in terms of the development of military equipment, even if it then compensated for the delay with the massive release of the most successful tank of the Great War – the FT-17! In addition, the British Admiralty immediately began to produce original models, that is, “diamonds”, and the first serious experience of France in this area, that is, the medium-heavy Schneider CA1, was still somewhat secondary …
– Secondary? – Adjutant de Saint-Cyr’s eyes lit up. – Have you ever heard such a name: Colonel Jean-Baptiste Etienne? Subsequently, by the way, a brigadier general?
“I hear it for the first time,” Hans Schmulke admitted.- Another badly forgotten name in the history of tank building, I suppose?
– Absolutely, Sher Amigo! For some reason, everyone remembers the names of Guderian and Rommel, Erwin Aders or Ferdinand Porsche, but it is not customary to remember those who stood at the roots, at the origins of the era. And Colonel Etienne was a remarkable person! They say that the army is an inert and conservative mechanism, resisting everything new and progressive in peacetime. But not in the case of Jean-Baptiste Etienne. An extremely versatile person.Before the outbreak of the First World War, it was believed that the place of aviation in hostilities was not even secondary, but insignificant: then aviation was considered entertainment for rich idlers. Etienne, back in 1909, developed reconnaissance and observation tactics for the air group in Reims, which were successfully used in the war.
– So he was a pilot? – did not understand Shmulke.
– No. Artilleryman. With the beginning of hostilities, he commanded the 22nd artillery regiment, using pre-war developments: aviation corrects the fire of guns, which significantly increases the combat quality of Etienne’s regiment.However, the infantry suffers unacceptable losses from the machine-gun fire of the Kaiser’s troops, and on August 25, 1914, Monsieur Etienne utters the historic phrase recorded by the staff officers: “Gentlemen, victory in this war will belong to the side that will be the first to place a 75-mm cannon on an armored vehicle able to move on any terrain. ” The British had ideas about this type of combat vehicles only in the month of November! So who is the leader?
“Theory is one thing, and practice is quite another,” the non-commissioned officer rightly noted.- In Britain, Winston Churchill jumped at the idea of creating a “land cruiser” immediately, and the first prototype, “Little Willie”, was tested less than a year later, on September 9, 1915 – this day can be considered the date of birth of tanks as such.
“They didn’t sit idle in France either,” retorted the adjutant de Saint-Cyr. “And especially Colonel Etienne. At the front, he saw how the British allies from the Corps of Engineers used the Holt tractor to clear debris, assessed the patency of the tracked chassis and immediately wrote a report to Commander-in-Chief Joseph Joffre.Oddly enough, Etienne’s considerations were taken into account, and, despite all the hardships of the war, the colonel was sent to the Renault company. They refused to accept the order, citing congestion. Finally, Etienne went to the company “Schneider”, which undertook to create “Tracteur blindé et armé”, that is, “Armored and armed tractor” based on the tracked chassis of the “Holt”.
– Here, I like this name much more than the British ambiguity with “Water tank in Mesopotamia”, as the first “rhombuses” passed according to the secret documents of the British, – said Shmulke.- At least on business. Tractor “Holt” is available, it remains to hang armor and put a cannon with machine guns. How successful?
“Very so-so,” Saint-Cyr reluctantly admitted. – However, the German A7V was much worse in terms of ergonomics, comfort for the crew and driving performance. “Schneider” at least did not roll over on every bump. The armor, like that of the British, is bulletproof and splinterproof, the car for six crew members is cramped, the cannon is in the hull on the starboard side. The speed is eight kilometers per hour.Not really a tank, but rather a self-propelled assault gun. But the restless Colonel Etienne managed to distinguish himself here too: he was the first in the world to develop revolutionary tactics for the use of armored vehicles!
– Wait, monsieur adjutant, – shook his head to Shmulke. – Okay, I agree, one appearance of tanks on the battlefield was a revolution in military technology. But the British created their “rhombuses” strictly with one goal – to break through defensive positions and support the infantry. First of all – the destruction of deeply echeloned defensive positions, with barbed wire, machine guns and other obstacles unpleasant for the infantryman.Etienne came up with something else?
“And you’re right again,” Monsieur de Saint-Cyr said enthusiastically. – A sudden massive attack by a large number, at dawn under the cover of fog, without prior artillery preparation. Where no one is expected. The British worked according to the scheme adopted once and for all: first, a long bombardment of the enemy from guns, which led to the appearance of a lot of craters that made it difficult for the tanks to advance, then two or three dozen vehicles go into battle, followed by the infantry.Colonel Etienne anticipated the actions of the tank formations of the Second World War.
“I think I understand,” nodded to Shmulke. – Early in the morning the engines explode, and a tank armada moves towards unsuspecting enemies? Right?
“From fifty cars or more,” the adjutant confirmed. – By the fall of 1916, Jean-Baptiste Etienne was awarded the rank of brigadier general and entrusted with the formation of a fundamentally new type of troops – tank troops. Tanks are concentrating near Arras, in the former County of Artois, and preparing to attack.Unfortunately, Etienne’s armored forces ended up in a bad place and at a bad time …
– I beg your pardon? – asked Hans Schmulke. – That is, as?
– Have you heard of the Nivelle Meat Grinder? It is said to have been the largest and most meaningless battle of the First World War, lasting only a month, from April to May 1917. Monstrous victims – three hundred and forty thousand soldiers from France and England, five thousand Russians from the Expeditionary Force. German losses – more than one hundred and thirty thousand.A very poorly calculated and even worse implemented massive offensive, which did not lead to positive results. The commander, General Robert Nivelle, after this failure, was removed from his post and sent out of harm’s way to Africa, although he should have been shot for incompetence.
– So what are the tanks? – reminded the non-commissioned officer.
– Despite the objections of Jean-Baptiste Etienne, who defended his concept of a surprise blow with a numerous steel fist, the “Meat Grinder” began with a grand artillery preparation: in a few days more than seven thousand guns fired eleven million shells.A tank group of one hundred and thirty-two Schneiders was divided, and there was no question of any surprise effect … In addition, the high command committed another glaring stupidity: Nivelles for some reason decided that the tanks should go for infantry, and do not punch her way. That completely deprived the car of maneuverability and speed of advance! The Schneiders depended on the advancement of the infantry units.
– To admit, I would have shot such a commander too, – said Shmulke. – Failure, then?
– Disaster, – de Saint-Cyr shook his head.- An accumulation of two groups of tanks was discovered, and German artillery struck, destroying several vehicles. After the second line of defense was taken, the interaction of tanks and infantry practically ceased, since the infantry, which had suffered serious losses, could no longer support the offensive. Individual vehicles reached the third line of the German defense, without infantry they could neither capture nor hold them – soon an order was given to retreat. Of the 132 vehicles, 76 were lost, which was unacceptable losses.
“Very unlucky,” the non-commissioned officer said sympathetically. – And how did General Etienne take it?
– He continued to fight. When Robert Nivelle was dismissed in disgrace, he was replaced by Henri-Philippe Petain, and under him the tank units began to achieve serious success: the battle on the Malmaison salient, and, finally, the Battle of Marne – Brigadier General Etienne finally realized his idea: tanks were secretly delivered to the places of concentration, the routes of movement and interaction with the infantry were worked out in detail, and a significant reserve was left.The strike by 347 medium and 220 light tanks in the early morning was devastating. However, the delays in the second line of defense and the lateness of the cavalry divisions did not allow them to take full advantage of the success: the German troops managed to organize a defense.
– Impressive anyway. After the war, Etienne stayed to serve?
– In 1922 he retired, but continued his research and theoretical activities. By the way, he turned out to be a prophet, predicting the course of the future war – “Imagine, gentlemen, a strategic and tactical advantage over the numerous armies of the recent past will be achieved when only one hundred thousand people will be able to cover eighty miles in one night with weapons and equipment in one direction and at any time! This can be achieved with the help of eight thousand trucks, escorting tanks with the support of a strike group of twenty thousand people. “Doesn’t it look like anything?
“Reminds me,” agreed Hans Schmulke.
