Kadyrovites engaging bandits in Grozny,Some background: DAGESTAN -- Two NVF fighters, including the leader of the Kaspiisk "bandgroup" Magomed Dzhamayev, have been killed in a spetz-operation targeting occupants of private house in the city of Kaspiisk.
The operation began at 03:00 this morning at house No. 143 on Aliyeva Street after the FSB and police confirmed intelligence that two fighters were hiding in the building. A KTO (Counter-Terror Operations) regime went into effect at 04;52after the neighborhood was evacuated.

Shooting continued throughout the morning, but police, with the help of the parents of those inside, later managed to coax six people (two women and four children) out of the house.

In those vids the guns don't appear to be stabilized, such as one the M1 or Challenger. Is this correct?
The 106th Guards Airborne Division held exercises not far from the village of Khomyakovo near Tula, in central Russia. Watch this RIA Novosti video to see footage of fighter-plane performance and flying fighting vehicles.
I wonder if this have some relation to what some former east German tankers reported, that in their T-72M/M1's, stabilization running longer than approx 1 hour would overheat and shut down, same with other T-72 versions?
I doubt, but it would be good to know from someone being Russian.
