Doctor of Military Sciences praised Russia's chances against NATO

Konstantin Sivkov, who holds the post of deputy president of the Russian Academy of Missile and Artillery Sciences and has a doctorate in military sciences, considered the possible development of events in the event of a local conflict between Russia and NATO. He believes that the success of one of the parties can be achieved only by gaining superiority in the air.

He outlined his thoughts in "Military Industrial Courier".

Sivkov believes that the successful conduct of land and naval military operations is impossible without the support of aviation. Although Russia has powerful air forces, they are not able to withstand NATO aircraft.

The number of Russian aircraft is significantly inferior to the US Air Force. In addition, US naval aviation can provide substantial assistance to the air force. In Russia, much less attention is paid to this type of troops.

Sivkov claims that the United States outnumbers Russia by a factor of about three. And if you take into account the aviation of Japan and the US European allies in NATO, then the likely enemy will receive a fourfold advantage.

On the other hand, the expert notes that our country has a significant number of the latest aircraft, which cannot be said about NATO aviation.

    What success ??? And it says a doctor of military sciences. fool There is not much mind here to understand that there can be no success in the war. If, I repeat, if the war begins, then it will be the entire planetary Apocalypse .... Therefore, no one has the thought to start a war, just talk.

    What was new in military thought that Sivkov introduced? The same Baranets still exists. Regular regulars of TV channels. Obvious things hum there, they hit the sky with their fingers. They take the liberty to talk about the "Vanguards", "Zircons", the data about which are classified, and they are not yet in the troops. They make the ultimate truth, smart guys.
