This map provides an overview of the current Crimean situation.
I know nothing about the actual troop dispositions so its all guesswork.
I think major points to not are the narrow land gaps and the Eastern sand bar.
In the video I discuss the options for amphibious assaults but have not added amphibious units as its not a serious scenario in that sense. Also, there are no air mobile units as I have not read about them anywhere.
Included are the S-400 Truimph Air Defence systems which have been mentioned in the news. There are 3 S-400 battalions which make up the reported regiment that has been supplied. I also think that their presence points towards the significant implications of air power in this scenario. As such, both sides have a lot of air defence. However, I think it makes sense to anticipate a lot of Russian air support should there be any conflict and that has been overed.
I do think that if there wasany actual conflict it would be far broader than this scenario map. As such I have not anticipated every variation and permutation, such as amphibious and air mobile units. The front between the Russia and the Ukraine, which is North East is vast and if there is any land war im sure it would pour fourth from that direction. Maybe I could do a map to cover that, but the headlines are currently about the Crimea and so thats what i've covered.
Personally, I cant see any military movement across such a narrow gap, I just dont thik its plausable, but as I said in the video, its an interesting scenario because im sure there are quite a few people that probably have minimal geographical familiarity of the region and when you look at iteven in a minor way it becomes very clear that its a very unique situation.
Because its a hypothetical situation I have not includedany objectives either.
The second South Front link mentions the Crimean isthmus which is the main join. Maybe I could do a map that zooms in on all of that but I cant see it really being a big possibility. I really think an ernest assault would use air mobile units and marines/amphibious units, none of whih have been mentoins. The idea that radical groups are going to invade the Crimea across the Crimean isthmus just seems to implausible, as I have said a few times now, I think.
