      if the f-16 is operational soon, we wont be seeing air to air combat reports i dont think because russia will probably hide behind sams and not risk planes at all. Which i get because their pilots are irreplaceable, but ukraine has to kill the sams before the air combat kino happens.

        Unlike decadent West we don't waste years teaching our pilots genders and BLM history.

        They can't really afford to waste airframes either.
        >25 Su-34s destroyed. If Ukraine's figures are accurate, the Russian air force would have around 105 Su-34s remaining in service. However, an unknown number may not be operational due to damage, a lack of pilots, and required routine maintenance.

          They can always get new aircraft from the Chinks if they actually start having serious issues.

        So F-16 will do more for a war than any other weapon system?

    Are Russians now flexing their air performance in this war? They really have zero self awareness.

      Nah these are straight up descriptions of things that happened to Russians like bombing Belgorod.

    Only in USSR.
    American pilots had about 250 hours of training before graduation. Primary training (take off and landing flying crop duster) alone took 60 hours, pilot needed to make 175 successful landings before he was allowed to move forward to more complex training and aircrafts.
    It's Soviets whose entire training was 25-40 hours and German Aces record scores reflect that.

    I don't know about Ukraine but WWII pilots in Battle of Britain had a huge advantage that they usually survived bailing out, got rescued by fishermen or commuters and taken straight to the nearest airbase where they'd get back in a plane the same day.

    German pilots perished at sea or became POWs, so they never went back to a wienerpit and their experience was lost.

    Allies were really playing with infinite respawn and building hero units by throwing them into constant battle.
    On the allied side, it must have felt like playing a tutorial level, nearly every opponent is green and you're over-levelled compared to them.

    US pilots got around 300 hours of flight time before combat missions. it's no accident the US won the air war.
