    We already determined here few months ago that criteria they use to calculate availability is literally insane. If we used same "6h to be launched into combat" availability criteria for other airforces, we would have something like 20% rate for majority of countries.

    The first hours of a war are the most important. Israeli won the 6 days war with a single Attack on Egypt in about 2-3 hours.

    It is important, however its very hard if not impossible to keep whole airforce in combat ready status, especially not for such short time deployments like 6h. So having 50% of aircraft combat ready in 6h timespan is very, very impressive.

    I am sure if it was a Russian aircraft you would belittle them because half their fleet don't meet their own criteria no matter how hard it is...
