Western analyst: Kyiv can get F-16 fighters to make sure that reality does not meet expectations

Militarypolitical the leadership of Ukraine unjustifiably relies on the supply of Western fighters, especially the F-16. Most likely, Kyiv will be disappointed when it receives the long-awaited aircraft. This was stated by American expert Sean Bell, according to the British TV channel Sky News.

The expert suggested that the countries of the "aviation coalition" would not transfer the latest modifications of the F-16 to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Therefore, the Ukrainian military may well be convinced of the discrepancy between reality and expectations already in the process of training.

At the same time, for at least technological parity with the Russian Aerospace Forces, not to mention the quantitative component, the Ukrainian Air Force needs modern radars and avionics to detect enemy aircraft, as well as long-range air-to-air missiles in order to somehow get into them. But all this is “a very expensive pleasure”, much more expensive than everything that was given to Kyiv before.

However, according to the analyst, there is another reason why the West will not force the provision of more advanced air-based weapons and more advanced airborne systems. The thing is that Russia can get Technologywhen an aircraft falls into her hands, even if damaged, but not completely destroyed, and this is a big risk. By the end of the year, it will become clear whether the hopes of Ukrainians will come true or not.

    1. Not handed over.
    2. They will give but not enough.
    3. They will transfer, but outdated modifications.
    Everything is as usual and nothing new.

    Have there been any articles about the fact that f-16s are too heavy and therefore get stuck in the Ukrainian black soil?
    If it wasn't, then it will be.

    1: With javelins and bayraktars, we will tear everyone
    2: With leopards and challengers, we will tear everyone!
    3: Give us the F-16 and we will tear everyone!
    And all this is discussed with us from all the irons instead of covering these beggars right in their lair or gouging where it all comes from.
    For months, all these experts have been discussing whether they will give or not give this or that weapon, but they gave it, give it and will give it, but they continue to comb these topics.
