Machine Gunners Battle Each Other for Fire Superiority Near Donbas

Published Jan. 7, 2022

Footage recorded near Donbas in Ukraine captures a machine gun fight between Russian Separatists and the Ukrainian Military. Both sides are attempting to gain fire superiority.


Fire superiority is obtained when one side of a firefight is able to put out far more firepower than the other. Once obtained, fire superiority allows the winning side of the gunfight the freedom needed to maneuver on their enemy. In this video, what you're looking at is the Ukrainian side of a gunfight between two machine gunners both attempting to gain fire superiority so that their troops can maneuver on the enemy.


When evenly matched, it's very easy for a firefight of this type to turn into a stalemate with neither side doing much more than suppressing the enemy's machine gun position. When there's no maneuver due to this type of stalemate, the next logical step is for both sides to start digging in trenches to better defend their location. Later on, this is exactly what would we see in the Donbas region as both the Ukrainians and Separatists quickly entrenched themselves in a WW1 style trench system.
