F-16s to be operational in Ukraine on May 5th - UA

Will this change anything? Probably not. I’m just looking forward to what type of livery the Ukrainians will put on them.

    strategic advantage of telling your enemies when you will start using a new toy?

      >strategic advantage of telling your enemies when you will start using a new toy?
      A weighing of factors, on the one hand it might give your enemies a mild bit of extra intel. But on the other:
      - Frankly it's unlikely even Russia would miss new fighters coming in. They're not stealthy, they fly around, Russia has radar. Any surprise lost is tiny. This isn't like ATACMS where it's just another same shaped pod until launch and there is the genuine possibility of catching important targets off guard the first time.
      - It may give a morale boost to the front lines, Ukraine needs (and deserves) all the good news it can get after another hard period.
      - It may push Russian forces into doing something (more) stupid beforehand.

      When it comes to big hardware I think it usually makes more sense to announce it then not, but they'll have thought it through.

      They told Russia when they were replenishing ATACMS but they still grouped over 100 soldiers together in the open and in range of them, so it doesn't really matter.

    Any chance these can help against the glide bombs?

    • 4 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Depends on if UAF wants to risk them going after the fighter bombers. Between GBAD and Mig-31 with the R-37s there is a lot of stuff that could reach out past the range of the aim-120s, even if they get the 120Ds. I would be surprised if they did as the USAF wants all the Ds in case of China. I think the glide bombs are released between 50-100km from the front depending, a 120d can go 100-160km. So they would have to fly within 50-100km of the from line. That is pretty fricking close.

      The trouble is to get good missile performance you need to be high and that makes you a huge target. With Mig-31s orbiting super high they will have great shots on F-16 popping up.

      I suspect they will be used to augment the air defense against drones and CMs first.

      Defo. Ukraine currently is heavily reliant on a lot of older Soviet Era semi-active air to air missiles on their Jets. This presents a dilemma since you can't maintain active target lock on a fighter bomber and dodge a fat assed B-52 killing R-37 that a Mig-31 yeeted from extreme ranges at you at the same time.

      F-16 has better early warning systems, and has fire and forget AMRAAMs. This will let them be used more aggressively to greater effect against glide bomb attacks. It's not gonna upturn everything (the VKS still has giant air-defense bubbles and giant ass extreme range air to air missiles), but it's absolutely an in improvement that'd restrict how the VKS can operate.

        I could be wrong, but aren't even AMRAAMs only reliant on their seeker for terminal and require the launching craft, or other networked sensor, to provide guidance until it's pretty damn close?

        • 4 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          120s are inertial guided with data linked course correction capabilities until terminal active phase. That is how pretty much all modern active radar homing missiles work.

          A 120 lobbed at a Mig-31 that's lobbing an R-37 at you isn't really ideal with the range differences. It's still vastly more capable than a SARH missile that has zero chance of ever hitting its target before the fighter that launched it is forced to go defensive.

            Russian air to air "ranges" are a load of bullshit, they advertise the range against a target that's flying towards the launching aircraft, and not trying to evade. A D probably matches the range of the R-37 in actual combat conditions

              An R-37 is a fat frick missile with a lot more fuel than any AMRAAM variant, launching off of a very fast aircraft at a likely high altitude. The math does not favor AMRAAMs.

              I'm still very interested to see what happens in the next few weeks when there is a credible a2a threat to the VKS in theater.

        A single shootdown in Turkish airspace is hardly a large enough sample size to judge.

        >modern
        These are old hand-me-downs that have gone through MLUs but that's about it. They're not modern by any means, we're on like Block 70/72 at this point for export customers who still rely on the type with deeply upgraded Block 50/52s for the USAF. They're clunkers, capable ones, but we're still looking at late Cold War/Kosovo era surplus.

        >modern NATO jets

        I was of the impression that, while obviously not fresh off the factory F-16s, these jets have been upgraded during their lifetime. They're hardly 70s tech through and through. Even if the radar isn't AESA, the sensor suite software is still massively better than what the jets were delivered with.

          They're old. Functional, but they lack a LOT of the features of more modern F-16 builds like the Block 50/52 that's in US service (which is also aging but it's got a better engine and it's qualified for virtually every NATO munition compared to older blocks). More than capable of firing off most standoff munitions.

          They were but we kind of don't know to what level and details really matter here. They will prove useful no doubt about it since they are better than any plane ukraine currently has anyway. But with what we've seen so far with russians getting buck broken by one cold war tech while brushing off another, different radar or type of missile sent can really change how those will be used.

            >Most of the RDAF F-16 remaining in service has been upgraded to the MLU 6.5 tape standard; except for the seven remaining Block-10 airframes, which have only been upgraded to MLU 4.3 tape. Because they are only Block-10, they do not have the strengthened nose wheel construction and they are unable to carry a targeting pod as well as not being able to fire the AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missile. These airframes are only used for training and as Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) aircraft but not for international missions.

            >In 1986, many other European users of the F-16 upgraded the Pratt & Whitney F100 PW200 engines to a modernised version namely, the PW-100-220E. However the Danish government decided not to join this engine upgrade. With the drawn out selection process for the F-16 replacement, it soon became clear that the original engines would not be able to see the F-16s through to their out-of-service date.

            >This meant that the RDAF in 2013 purchased 50 used F100 PW220E engines and these are currently being fitted to the RDAF F-16 fleet to keep the aircraft flying until their planned out-of-service date in 2024. Commanding officer of 730 Squadron, pilot name ‘STI’ said about the upgraded engines “The main advantages of the new -220E engines are more rapid thrust during take off, which means the aircraft gets airborne quicker, leaving more runway in case of an emergency. The engine also performs better in the air, which improves its effectiveness during air-to-air combat”.

              From your link:
              >On October 13, 1998, six F-16s from Eskadrille 730 (730 Fighter Squadron) departed Fighter Wing (FW) Skrydstrup, along with a total of 115 support personnel and headed for Grazzanise Air Base in Italy. In April 1999, a further three F-16s were send to Grazzanise where they operated until June 2000.
              >After this initial overseas operation, the RDAF F-16 has been very active internationally. The next time RDAF F-16s participated in a combat operation was during the US-led “Operation Enduring Freedom” over Afghanistan. From October 1, 2002 until October 1, 2003 six RDAF F-16s operated out of Manas Air Base in Kyrgyzstan. During the deployment the six F-16s flew a total of 743 missions over Afghanistan, totalling about 4350 flight hours. During these missions several laser-guided bombs were dropped.
              >After the Baltic countries joined NATO in April 2004, NATO set up the Baltic Air Policing mission to provide air policing over the three nations as they lacked the assets to do so themselves. RDAF F-16s have been deployed to the Baltic region four times, flying out of either Šiauliai Air Base in Lithuania or Ämari air base in Estonia.
              Etc. So while I don't see anything specific about data link, I find it unimaginable they can't talk with NATO AWACS given direct participation in multiple campaigns in active combat roles as well as baltic air patrol.

            they're practically the same: Block 20 MLUs (old radar) with the latest software tape for radar modes, NATO combined ops integration, and weapon compatibility - but not sure if they have the latest engine.

            High hours if maintained doesn't mean shit. I can't vouch for other countries but worked A/B/C/D/CJ for a couple decades as a motor troop then merged with TAMS (easy as I was already qualified).

            16s are easy to work on and the only limfac would be spare parts and consumables which for such a tiny fleet would be easy to supply.

            That's kinda the definitive upgrade for the Block 50/52 after all.

            The engine is minor compared to the radars for the Ukrainian use case. I worked both Pratts and GE and prefer the GE (because stainless mesh around wiring harnesses is annoying when R&Iing components with the engine still installed) but either is easy to maintain from an engine troop perspective. Nothing on 16s is hard to work on (I was Red X/IPI qualified on all systems), though some uncommon tasks can be tedious.

            Support will be similar to supporting any austere location and that was a solved problem before the jet age.
            Today we have the miracles of FedEx, DHL, and UPS. Austere support like any "deployment" condition doesn't take much. All the tools and support equipment are easily airlifted and even for a US squadron the footprint is modest. I and many thousands of others have done it for their squadrons. Everything is a known quantity easily shown to others.

      Indirectly? Yes. A major pressure on existing UKR AA networks is dealing with drones. It is far more economical to simply have something like an F-16 deal with that rather than build increasingly layered networks on the ground with assets that could (and will) be reallocated elsewhere.

    Yes, absolutely. What it won't change is EVERYthing, but sure it'll change some things and, used properly, help at least blunt further Russian movement and let Ukraine hold the line. It might, depending on numbers of HARMS issued, how well the UA pilots have learned, how well they can combine forces with ATACMS, etc, let them do some significant new attacks on Crimea and the like down the road.

    I imagine they'll be fairly cautious at the start though. They don't have hundreds of them and don't have many prospects to get lots more in the near future.

        At what distance can they pick up the glide bomb launchers? I assume those go low then suddenly pop up.

        Forte are not AWACS but RQ-4 Global Hawks
        Unless Global hawks are AWACs but I doubt..

        To my knowledge AWACS aircraft have never flown into the black sea during this war, never entering international airspace. There have only been Global hawks and RAF Rivet Joints in IA and each types of those aircraft have been fired upon, almost starting a war when a Russian fighter jet fired a faulty missile at a RAF surveillance aircraft.

                They have ELINT capability too so they're probably used to map out Russian radars, SAM sites, communications links, etc. I'm just saying that even though a generic AESA might be able to do air search, we haven't had any information come out publicly about the Global Hawk being able to do it. This is really old but
                > The Global Hawk radar and EO/IR payload are carried simultaneously. Radar is capable of multiple modes -- SAR strip at one meter, SAR spot at a foot, GMTI mode down to four knots operating all at 20 to 200 kilometers range.
                Nothing about air search. It might be a thing but if it is I'd expect that only the US, Russia, and complete autists know about it.

        If having a data link with an E-7 Wedgetail which is the wests most advanced AWACS with a range up to over 600km it will be able to see from Turkish airspace to Rostov on don

        So imagine two E-7 AWACS flying and strategically sampling for signs of Russian air activity non stop.
        If this happens these flights MUST be non listed and not announced by the west politically because if they had the west assisting with Ukrainian F16s it would be a massive force multiplier and would probably put Russia's air superiority on the back foot.

        The largest issue is the main owners of this aircraft is New Zealand and Australia (but one deployed in Germany) and would take a lot geopolitically to achieve this special military assistance operation. 😉

          600km sounds great, but would it pick up an SU34 that pops up to 15000 feet, drops its glide bom, then descends again?

            Yes.
            And the AWACS would show this to a Ukie F16 who would fire a BVR missle towards a it.
            hopefully before it reaches its drop altitude as well so it can stop the bombing AND be shot down. fyi if it commits to its bombing mission it is almost guaranteed to be shot down due to the nature of BVR missiles.

            Talking about it like this makes me realise how insignificant Russia can become if only provided just a small amount of indirect assistance from NATO

              This is possibly the single biggest thing everyone should keep in mind: to some extent the REAL capability of getting F-16s with datalinks is giving another way to effectively let NATO help fight the war directly while not technically directly doing so. NATO can do all target detection and provide necessary guidance information, that's a HUGE capability that would normally be impossible for a country like Ukraine, and means they can use BVR missiles that they'd not get close to real mileage out of otherwise. But NATO never pulls the trigger, they maintain complete off hands while effectively getting to blap Russian planes remotely.

    No, probably not. Whenever something is sent to Ukraine, it's simply an incremental strengthification to their militarium. Pile on enough of it, and you'll embiggen their ability to fight over time, but given the Wur Wor Wan nature of the conflict, which is inherently static in nature, it's likely not going to tip the scale in their favor enough for them to push back.
    Granted, there have been some weapons that have greatly increased Ukraine's ability to fight, but they're usually less flashy, and revolve more around explodening muscovites from a great distance.
    Artillery, MLRS and ammunition for those systems are likely the things that will have the greatest impact on the battlefield for Ukraine, along with MANPADs and infantry AT weapons (and maybe the Bradlus). I mean, modern jets, tanks and IFVs are also integral for battlefield success and offensive warfare, but for the sake of murdering as many muscovites as possible, you have to rely on the long range explodey boys (and lots of cheap shitnugget drones, but they seem to be making those themselves at this point).

    • 4 weeks ago

      Nah, I don't really agree with your analysis. Modern jets are a force changer in a way that tanks and IFVs aren't, they fundamentally shrink the battle space given how quickly they can move around an area that small. They can exploit new holes, bypass certain positions, give far more energy far more cheaply to cruise missiles and so on. They aren't wanderwaffen win buttons by any means, but air power is a pretty big deal. Ukraine has had plenty of success at times in nailing key Russian AD, moving in their own, and achieving local air superiority, but then failed to really be able to leverage it because ground forces can't do enough fast enough. An immediately followup with a bunch of paveways even would have really made each time count and hit Russia a lot harder.

        Once Ukraine transitions to a Western air force + air arms and Patriot Battery's and ground Radars. Ukraine will win.

        Via assistance from western AWACS Ukraine will significantly ruin Russian air superiority and air force due to NATO AWACS being a massive force multiplier for F16s whilst still operating in their own territory.

        Don't get me wrong. I do agree that airpower is an absolutely essential part of the modern battlefield, something that's been true since our grandparents' days, and particularly when it's backed up by American intelligence/AWACS, but the issue here is simply the number of F-16s Ukraine is getting, and they'll be slowly doled out over a year or so. I think the number of F-16s they're getting is somewhere between 80 and 100, and that's simply not enough to tip the scales in their favor. It's a huge boost, no doubt, but they'll be priority targets.
        And I say that as someone who's from a country that's donated half of our old F-16s to Ukraine, considering we've replaced them with F-35s.
        I genuinely do hope that the F-16s over-perform far beyond my expectations, but my assumption is that they'll simply be another incremental improvement to Ukraine's arsenal. We'll see though. I'm no military expert.

          I wasn't claiming it was a wanderwaffen game ender, just that I think it's a significantly bigger deal then tanks (though also significantly harder to use, required significantly more training, significantly more maintenance, etc). Modern jets are also flying sensor and data points, they will further enhance theater awareness and reaction ability.

          As you say though we'll see. And all this is with big caveats about usage. Ukraine hasn't been flying western fighters for a few decades with a chance to gain experience safely during American led turkey shoots. They could very easily squander the chance, though of course they'll be completely aware of that as well. There will also be real pressure to show results from multiple sides, both given Russian gains, and given the geopolitics. It'd really help Ukraine to have had something major to point to by the end of the summer beyond merely staying alive, though obviously that remains Job #1.

            >just that I think it's a significantly bigger deal then tanks
            I agree on that point. A tank is a tank, as the vatBlack folk say, and even if that's kinda bullshit, it's kinda true in a roundabout way if you look at vulnerability, and the situation in Ukraine. No matter how good a tank is, you can take it out with mines, artillery, other tanks, infantry AT weapons, drones, and so on, particularly if you're not backed up by a modern military and without air superiority. Even the most advanced tank is extremely vulnerable in the situation Ukraine finds itself in, in large part because of Ukraine's lack of air superiority, but that is one of the problems the F-16s are meant to address. I just don't think they'll have enough of them.
            But yeah, it's going to be interesting. Jets are their own thing, and while you can somewhat predict how a tank will perform in a given situation, there are so many unknown factors that play into how a modern air force will perform that I'll admit it's an area where I might be surprised. We'll see though. If nothing else, vatBlack folk are infamous for being extremely incompetent, so if none of their shit works and they get fricked up the ass by a handful of F-16s, I wouldn't be surprised. But again, I don't know.

            At least Ukraine has prepared itself properly, by focusing heavily on destroying vatBlack person AA and the vatBlack person equivalent of AWACS (A-50s).

            I hope you're right about your third point, though. Like I said, I'm no expert on jets, and given that muscovites always exaggerate their own abilities, it would be hilarious beyond belief if the F-16s actually end up being Wunderwaffen to them, and that they end up being unable to counter them. We'll see.

            >but they'll be priority targets.
            Literally every piece of ukrainian aircraft is a priority target. I don't see your point. If they have problems shooting down MiG 29s and Su 24s why would F16s be more vulnerable? Falcons are logistically easier for us, they can fire NATO munitions without the need to Black person rig them to soviet aircraft without targeting pods and datalink. And with the number they are getting I'm at least expecting aerial parity. But we will see what they get along with their new planes.

            I meant more in the sense that vatBlack folk are moronic, and are obsessed with trophy victories, to the point where they'll divert resources to killing HATO Wunderwaffen, over doing something useful, usually to their own detriment. Granted, that would assume they're able to identify the F-16s, which I'm guessing they're not going to be able to do. It's one thing to target an Abrams or a Leopard, which they can see with one of their third world drones, but a modern jet? Probably not.

                Yeah, I'm trying to read up on it right now.
                One recent article claims that Denmark and the Netherlands will donate 61 F-16s. I believe Norway has not confirmed their contributions, but a likely estimate is 22, given that's what's left, after the other 32 were sold to Romania.
                Belgium has stated that they'll likely donate some in 2025 (they have 54), and Greece is apparently talking about donating 32 F-16s.

                So, that's 61 + 22 from Denmark, the Netherlands and Norway, which comes to 83. If we add all of Greece's aircraft, that's 115. Belgium has 54. If they donate half, that comes to 142. If they donate all, that comes to 169.
                So the highest estimate I can come up with would be 169, while the lowest estimate would be around 75.
                And that's without the US donating any.

And why do you think Russia's fleet of "attack" helicopters have been decimated as they've been trying to get western trophy kills in mid-2023?

          In the start of the war major Ukrainian SAM sites were dispersed to avoid losses to Russian massive rocket barrages Ukrainian airforce using MiG-29 and Su-27 was the main reason that prevented Russian from gaining air superiority. And you'd know it if you'd read anything about it

        4 HIMARS changed course of the war
        3 Patriot system did monumental task of both stopping Russian hypersonic missiles and killing a lot of Russian air assets, including first AWACS kill in history
        80 F-16 don't have to drop 200 bombs a day to change balance, if they scare away Su-34 and Su-35 from launching KABs and Russian attack helicopters it will be more than enough

          We ignored it out of the stupid idea that Russia could be trusted to understand mutually beneficial economic collaboration and fear of escalation against a superpower. But 2022 proved that russians are just snow Black folk, a regional bully at best.

          Russia didn't actually really deploy his armed forces before 2022, they used proxies or subversion operations. When they really did it in 2022, they were defeated everywhere in Ukraine except in areas left open by traitors (Kherson) or too exposed (Mariupol)

            Anyone who wasn't a total fricking moron realized this in the early 2000s, a few years after the funny drunken guy Yeltsin got booted, and people realized that Putin had no interest in working with the west.
            Or, you know, you could just have looked at a history book, and realized that russoids aren't human, and even in WW2 were by nature infinitely worse than even the most indoctrinated turbo-nazi working in the darkest corners of the German-Polish concentration camps.

                It requires some context but it's bombshell proof that glowposting is real. The blurry dithered screencap in the top right is from a CIA document and the archive link leads directly to a thread about Christchurch (trust me for now on the CIA part until some lurker inevitably posts the proof). The glowie repeatedly tries to blame Russian/Ukrainian involvement for the attack while at the same time deflecting blame from mossad. It's a monumental frickup on the CIA's part which deserves to be remembered forever and immortalized in history but it gets posted less and less.

    The best part is, an American planet is actually also the best planet for every other human being who isn't part of an absolute abortion tier nation or ideology. The quality of life for even the average Russian would be dramatically improved if the Russian government just fricked off and handed the whole country over to NATO. Their economy would explode under open integration with the West, but their corrupt leaders would be fricked so it'll never happen until they're out of the picture.

With some semi-competent generals, like they had in the 19th century, they could at least have reduced their losses, even if they would still have been disproportionately bad.

    They use the air to air 300 km advantage they have on Russians and several thousand jdams they are getting to drop a couple hundred on large troop gatherings. With other things they'll be hitting deep into Russia going for road digging groups of conscripts. If they get to them It will freak out other conscripts

    Hopefully the Euros will deliver Meteor and it can be adapted to the F16 (or they just deliver a handful of Gripens/Eurofighters). Something to counter R37.
