The official page of Operational Command West revealed the last unannounced brigade of the 2023 conscription wave – 150th Mechanized Brigade.

The new mechanized brigade is being formed in Volyn Oblast as part of Operational Command North, and received military number A4935. The announcement also revealed the unit’s insignia, which visualize the flag of Volyn Oblast and three spears on a green background. It resembles the insignia of 14th Mechanized Brigade, which is also from Volyn Oblast.

Insignia of 150th Mechanized Brigade

We wrote about the formation of five new mechanized brigades back in October 2023. As of today, all five brigades have been officially confirmed.

Developers of STALKER 2 donated equipment to a reconnaissance platoon of the brigade

The unit’s page of 150th Mechanized Brigade has been updated to reflect the changes above. Special thanks to our contributor davomme, who made the high resolution version of the insignia.

Where can we find other sources and updates like what we used to have here?

Did you stop the updates because Ukraine started loosing a lot?

You can read the update by ISW, look at the Maps by Deepstate or Noelreports.
Please read his post form January 2. In short, this side is his hobby, not his job. He does everything in his free time. In order to have free time again, he’ll focus on Ukrainian regular and volunteer units, the original purpose of the page.

Ah yes. Ok.

I don’t like ISW very biesed. This was much more honest.

Now I watch the liveuamaps but there is no propper commentary.

May the soldier’s luck be with them. I hope they’ll get proper vehicles before they enter the combat zone. Those VW “Bullisare nice for a trip with your youth club, but not for the frontline.

Don’t worry dude – no one is going to storm the trenches in these vans 🤦🤷

Miles_Ignigena

Yeah, i was more worried if they even reach the frontline, with all the drones and loitering munitions that circle above. Plus these are no off-road vehicles.

Ukrainer

Transport is needed not only directly on the front line. In this case, any transport is better than nothing. 🤦🤷

What’s worse is that these are the soldiers’ own vehicles, which they financed themselves with the last of their scraped together money. If they are lucky, sometimes a donation comes.
You shouldn’t have to drive to the front in private vehicles. This is actually not a vacation and it’s not exactly nice to see how your own car, which was bought with the last money, is getting more and more damage

Miles_Ignigena

Well obviously 🤦🤷 but Drones and loitering munitions are not only directly above the frontline, but also behind it. In this case, any armour is better than nothing. You can find countless videos russian vans getting hit by FPV Drones.
