One hundred combat aircraft for Ukraine: which fighter will become the main one in the Armed Forces of Ukraine


Ukraine wanted to arm more than a hundred new multi-functional combat fighters over the next 15 years. What kind of aircraft will become the main one in the Armed Forces, tried to find out the Polish edition of Defense24.


The Ukrainian Air Force wants to adopt a high-performance fighter. But if the domestic aviation industry cannot create such an aircraft, then it will have to be bought abroad, preferably with the maximum involvement of Ukrainian companies in its production.

Kiev has extensive plans for the modernization of the Air Force until 2035. The Ukrainian military wants to replace four types of post-Soviet vehicles: fighters, reconnaissance, bombers and attack aircraft - with one.

Currently, Ukraine has six tactical aviation brigades. As of the end of 2018, they had various options for the Su-24 (14 units), Su-25 (31 units), Su-27 (35 units) and MiG-29 (45 units).

The first phase of the update is due to happen by 2025. The military wants to decide what kind of machine they need, deal with the infrastructure and staff training, and then buy one squadron. By 2030, they want to arm the two brigades with new planes, i.e. the number of squadrons should increase to at least four. By 2035, they hope to replace the remaining cars with new ones.

The cost of the program is estimated at UAH 200 billion, which is almost $ 8,6 billion. For Ukraine, this is a huge amount, but even it will not be enough to rearm the Air Force on the coveted fifth generation aircraft. So Ukraine, most likely, will make its choice in favor of aircraft generation 4 ++.

Now Kiev and Washington are negotiating at the intergovernmental level on this issue. The aircraft Boeing F-15 Eagle and F-16 Falcon are considered in the latest export modifications. Also considered is the option of acquiring Saab JAS39E / F Gripen fighters from Sweden. The plan to acquire such a large number of aircraft makes Ukraine an attractive market for large companies.

      This is not bad at all: India, for example, traditionally holds three types of multi-purpose aircraft (tactical fighters):
      heavy ones - Su-30MKI, medium ones - Rafal will go now and light ones - Tejas. Ukrainians, if they are not fools, have only two: F-15EX and F-16 of the latest modification (AFAR and other bells and whistles). In fact, the Americans had a two-plane system: before F-15 (C and E) + F-16, they were replaced by F-22 + F-35.

    Here we are all waiting for the nenka to fall apart .... The whole world has been waiting the same way since 1917, when Bolshevik Russia fell apart, but their expectations were not fulfilled, our country survived, and it doesn’t matter to us what was there in 1917, or revolution, or coup d'etat. Our country has experienced a lot of things, from the civil war, the Red Terror, collectivization, industrialization, socialism, the Great Patriotic War, the collapse of the USSR and the wildest capitalism, and somehow we have been holding on for more than 1000 years, and after all, we have had unlimited enemies in the past, both in the present and in the future, so we need to rely only on ourselves. But .... we, ordinary Russians, can’t understand how it is so, a country appeared next to us, a former fraternal republic, which now considers us to be its evil enemy and occupier, blames us for all our sins, and we quieted down, like a mouse under a broom, and chewing snot .... If we continue to express our concerns about Bandera Galicia, and no more, then exactly after 5-6 years it will be too tough for us - Europe will arm they are not above the roof, and he won’t ask for money, just to wipe our country off the face of the earth, and these 100 combat aircraft for Ukraine can turn from virtual into real ones .... After all, the so-called Ukraine can and must be announced. "sanctions", i.e. a complete blockade on the supply of all energy resources, food, metal, and other all kinds of equipment, and close the borders tightly, let Europe supply it for nothing .... And once again I repeat - there is no Prophet in your own country.

      Are you seriously? There are approximately 230 fighters in Germany. And plans for the purchase of about .......... 130 fighters.

      https://bmpd.livejournal.com/4006141.html

      After all, it is possible and necessary to declare the so-called Ukraine "sanctions", i.e. a complete blockade on the supply of all energy, food, metal, and other all kinds of equipment, and close the borders tightly, let Europe supply it for nothing ....

      To block something, you must first patch the holes. Everything that is blocked at the border will calmly pass through Belarus. Europe, supplying for nothing, sounds like a joke.

      It’s not necessary to fight with Ukraine, but to pull it over to your side, as the USA did with the Kremlin for the past twenty years with the connivance of the Kremlin prisoners ...

    From modesty, these people will not die. laughing
    100 fighters? This is despite the fact that today in the stable of the local Goering there are a little more than 200 theoretically flying units. Two hundred to all air forces, including transporters, drones, kites and postal crows.
    For 5 years they are going to think which plane they need. winked 8,6 billion bourgeois money - a ridiculous amount for Europe, apparently, the budget will be cut, another part will be stolen, in the end ......
    I can help my neighbors make a choice, just look and ask for a price.



    They can agree to participate in the production, independently paint military pterodactyls in yellow-blue.

    “Give”, because Ukraine will not return anything.

    Physically, Ukraine will not be able to pay for 115 new combat aircraft, and those who wish to donate such expensive equipment in such quantities, most likely, will not be found. Perhaps the Yankees will offer Bandera several dozen previously written off from the NATO Air Force aircraft, or drones, this is the maximum that shines the Ukrainian Air Force.

      Yes, they will be sold more, some old trash at the price of new ones. They will be paid with land, at a price 10 times lower than the market price or something else, and still a lot of natural wealth is not sold out.

    You can, of course, laugh - deny pennies, but the Americans are not poor and not greedy - since 2014, up to $ 500 million has been allocated each year to military aid to Ukraine (in 2017 - 560 million), other countries are allied together the same amount. Equipment, though not new, but no worse than in service in Russia, was sold for 10% of the cost. So for 10-15 years, a hundred F-15 and F-16 easily and without straining, Ukraine will receive.

      This is money thrown into the rural outhouse. It would be better if this money was given to their blacks.

    I understand that if they wrote that by the year 35, a Death Star in the amount of one hundred pieces would be put on combat duty in Ukraine.
    And so, there’s nothing to even talk about.
