F16 to Ukraine? Big Yawn!

Spread the Word

Michał Krupa @MGKrupa – NATO: We will send F-16’s to Ukraine!
Russia: Hold my beer

> In late October a Ukrainian Sukhoi-27 Flanker, Soviet-era fighter, was shot down by a long-range air-to-air missile (LRAAM) – the R-37M. This is not the first Ukrainian aircraft to be shot down since Russia’s invasion commenced in February, but it is nevertheless a significant feat for the Russian Air Force because the R-37M took down the Ukrainian Sukhoi-27 from a range of 217km (about 140 miles). This would make the kill the longest on record. The R-37M is a hypersonic long-range air-to-air missile (LRAAM) reportedly capable of reaching Mach 6 and striking targets up to 400km (250 miles) away.

The R-37M has become virtually unmatched, with few potential rivals.Furthermore, it is reported that the R-37M was fired from Russia’s fifth-generation fighter the Sukhoi-57 Felon rather than the Mikoyan MiG-31 Foxhound, Russia’s primary interceptor. The possibility of a fifth-generation Felon executing a target from such a long range is not at all impossible; the Sukhoi-57 has a sophisticated actively electronic scanned arrays (AESA) radar system comprising of the solid state AN/APG-77 – with a range of at least 200km (125 miles); and the N036 Byelka radar which boasts a maximum range just under 400km (250 miles). <

I can guarantee one thing. Any country sending F-16 to Naziland should know that their fighter jet is going to be destroyed.
If you’ve been following the Saudi Arabia/Yemen war since 2015, you would have noticed that F-16 FAILED miserably. Morocco decided to drop from the coalition of the willing after losing his first F-16. Then Jordan followed them after losing his first F-16. These are reasonable leaders – they don’t double down after failure. They change course.
Imagine a stone age Yemeni army neutralizing the Air force of 2 Kingdoms armed with F-16!
They’ve turned Saudi Arabia into an apprentice sorcerer after 8 years of fight in the desert.

The Houthis proved to the world that the Patriot ABM is a junk and Russia has validated their finding in May 2023. They proved to the world the the F-16s are a junk and Russia will validate their finding in the coming months.

Bring them on – NATO has weapons to be scrapped in Naziland!!

BTW: F-16 cannot land and/or take off in Naziland. I suspect they’ll be operated from Poland and/or Romania. In which case those countries will be directly involved in the war at their own risk!

Demilitarizing NATO should become one of the written goals of this SMO.
