American general: US Air Force can change the balance of power in Ukraine


If the administration of US President Joe Biden makes a decision to transfer American fighters to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, this could change the balance of power in Ukraine. General George Brown, Chief of Staff of the US Air Force, told reporters about this during a briefing.


He explained that the US Air Force is able to help Kyiv in the training of pilots and maintenance personnel if they receive the appropriate order. They will simply change their priorities and allow Ukrainian servicemen to be trained bypassing the queue.

Recall that in July, Brown admitted that US specialists would train Ukrainian pilots to pilot American fighters. He then also hinted that in addition to the American F-15 and F-16, European fighters JAS 39 Gripen, Eurofighter and Rafael could be delivered to Ukraine.

In turn, the commander of the US Air Force in Europe and Africa, General James Hecker, said the other day, Politico writes that Ukraine is unlikely to quickly receive F-16s from the United States. He pointed out that even if the decision on deliveries is made, it will take 2-3 years to send planes to Kyiv.

Hecker explained such terms with logistics and the need to train the Ukrainian military. He stressed that he “would not count” on sending these aircraft to Ukraine now.

In addition, Hecker is confident that the conflict on Ukrainian territory will last for years. At the same time, he drew attention to the fact that the Air Force of Ukraine has managed to save up to 80% of its aircraft since Russia began its special operation.

      And even more surprisingly, the Americans write about the supply of heavy tanks to Ukraine. And the only problem in Okasets is the improper maintenance of equipment by the Ukrovoyaks, and not the opinion of the DNR LNR.

    To deliver planes, you need pilots, technicians and the entire infrastructure .. From tankers to electronics .. And it will cost - don’t worry, mom. I’m already silent about the timing ... As for the promised zoo, for example, they can ask India what it is like to serve a fleet of aircraft from different countries by origin ..

    It's a good way to deal with it. Actively destroy the system of ukrofascists, BEFORE these devices appear on the territory. Reduce the territory, at least to the size achievable by simple cannon artillery to any point not yet freed from them. If they use someone else's territory, then plant them when crossing borders. Relatively cheap and small-caliber tool.

    It’s complete nonsense, everything around the perimeter of Ukraine is stuffed with s-300 s-400. Something the Americans do not fly into the Russian air defense zone in Syria ...

    In addition, Hecker is confident that the conflict on Ukrainian territory will last for years.

    Everything may end in 2023 Firemane Horse, which completes the 16 year cycle.
