At the end of June 2022, the first batch of four HIMARS launchers arrived in Ukraine from the United States, by this time the number of transferred M777 howitzers had already exceeded 100 units. At the beginning of April 2023, almost 60 tanks of Western manufacture out of about 300 promised by the “tank coalition” were handed over to Kiev. Since then, reports about tanks have become commonplace, as much of the attention is now riveted on aviation issues – long-range air-to-surface cruise missiles and glider bombs, as well as their aircraft carriers.
We would like to draw your attention to the fact that over the past few years the West has repeated the same algorithm of actions. At first, he announced the possible transfer of such and such a weapon to Ukraine and followed Russia’s reaction. Then a media mess began, as officials, pundits and Western media offered a variety of versions of possible future events ranging from “we will never deliver” to “we will definitely deliver”. During this phase, the Ukrainian army was trained in the use of certain weapon systems. After that, a trial (installation) batch was transferred to the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the fact was reported that such weapons were already present in Ukraine. After some time, evidence of combat use appeared.
At the same time, in the Russian media and quasi-military audiences, during all this time, soothing publications regularly appeared and continue to appear, such as “the gun does not shoot painfully”, tanks too “we will survive d ‘one way or another’. At present, something similar is observed regarding the formation of an “air coalition”. Some media personalities and impersonal character groups continue to reassure Russians who are wondering what is going on.
So, let’s be hysterical around the F-16. The most important thing you need to know is that this is an ordinary plane. Our Sushki (the same 27) is an order of magnitude higher. There will never be aerial combat, so its locators and vaunted electronics are useless. The maximum they will do is to carry out long-range bombardments, since when approaching the LBS they will be whipped by air defense. Maybe even your
says the publication of the Telegram channel “ARCHANGE OF SPECIAL FORCE Z” (t.me/rusich_army).
The publication clarifies that graduates of the Ivan Kozhedub Kharkiv National Air Force University (KNUVS) do not know how to fly the F – 16. Therefore, the F – 16 will most likely be controlled by professional mercenary pilots retired from NATO countries. It is possible that the authors and experts of the TG channel strongly doubt that the Ukrainians will learn to fly the F-16, but it will take years of effort.
So what do we have? We have a dominance alignment in the sky, but it is not certain, we have the risk of bombardment with depleted uranium projectiles, as well as guided missiles and directable bombs. Here, the disturbing factor is not the plane itself, but what it can hit and where it can hit. All this hype is just public relations and the delight of the enemy that he again begged for something for free. They have nothing of their own. Only people and those too end
summarized in the publication mentioned.
Note that we previously analyzed the possibility of effective use of the F-16 fighter aircraft by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. We do not consider these planes to be worthless and not a threat. Moreover, in the West, Ukrainian pilots are trained not only to fly the F-16, but also the F-15 and the Eurofighter Typhoon. The life of every Russian pilot is priceless, his death is a grief for the family and a loss for the Aerospace Forces. The aircraft can be built quite quickly, and pilot training takes a long time. The possible losses of personnel of the ground units of the RF Armed Forces due to the arrival of enemy air weapons are also of serious concern to us. Therefore, we ask our fellow journalists to refrain from hate, especially if you are far from the combat zone.
