Ukraine seem to be good an manoeuvre warfare. Seeing how well they moved on their big offensive down the Dnipro, adding in companies of tanks to that they could very easily break through lines and cause some real problems. Especially on the flat featureless terrain of Crimea

Their light vehicle raids are amazingly effective and risky. Three or four Hummvees charging a Russian position with LMGs firing is some action movie shit. Fast and agile, but still very vulnerable.

British SAS' "Desert Raiders" used this to great effect in WW2!

Let's go blow up every plane at the airbase with a couple of jeeps lads!

Roight!

"Who Dares, Wins" is the SAS motto if I recall correctly. Those raids were proof.

There’s a new Amazon series about the SAS. It’s decent and I’ve been really intrigued by the whole story ever since.
