Russia's military tech is so out-of-date that its fighter jets have GPS devices taped to the dashboard so the pilots don't get lost in Ukraine ๐Ÿ˜‚

We all know it's true: Dudes just hate to ask for directions.

We'll do anything we can to avoid it. We'll drive twelve hours in the wrong direction instead of stopping to ask a gas station attendant where the freeway is.

Apparently, that's not just an American thing. Take Russia, for example:

Wrecked Russian fighter jets are being found with rudimentary GPS receivers "taped to the dashboards" in Ukraine because their inbuilt navigation systems are so bad, the UK defense secretary said.

Speaking at the National Army Museum in London on Monday, Ben Wallace commemorated those who died in World War II and called Russia's invasion of Ukraine "senseless and self-defeating."

He also said there was evidence suggesting Russian military hardware was being pushed to breaking point by the invasion of Ukraine.

"'GPS' receivers have been found taped to the dashboards of downed Russian Su-34s so the pilots knew where they were, due to the poor quality of their own systems," he said.

That's right: A major world superpower is trying to pull off the invasion of a neighboring company using hardware it probably purchased at Radio Shack!

Now, you might think that this humiliating revelation would suggest Russia is a low-level threat when it comes to territorial invasion. But don't underestimate the wantonly destructive power of an inept superstate:

The result is that whilst Russia have large amounts of artillery and armor that they like parading, they are unable to leverage them for combined arms maneuver and just resort to mass indiscriminate barrages.

Yeahhh not great.

Call me crazy though, I still think this isn't going to end well for Russia either way. And I'm starting to suspect Russia knows it too.
