    Air Power in 2008 Russo-Georgian War - Page 2 Empty Russian armed forces experience

    Guys , i dont know if this is the proper thread to post this but i am really interested in discussing the use of SEAD and other advanced weapons by the RUAF in this conflict because it was their baptism of fire against a modern ADS. I mean it was like fighting a soviet 1990 sam system (excluding s-300), being superior to anything the USA and Israel have fought in their previous wars. As a test, it was a really hard test for the RUAF and they got lot of experience. In the Saker blog there was an entry with really interesting articles.

    One of them its about SEAD.

    There is a good paper called the tanks of august. I can upload it if you want.

    But what i mean, i would like to talk how these developments helped the Russian armed forces modernization plans and doctrines.

    If this topic was talked about i wish you could send me a link to follow the discussion.

    Cheers.

    It was a rehearsal of what is happening in Ukraine, both sides USA and Russia, are playing those lessons now. I guess Russia made a huge leap forward as we see with the "cover" support of the NAF. And the experience allowed them to be more prepared against an advanced enemy. In Ukraine, they still have a powerful IADS ( at least on paper) so the lessons of 8-8-8 are critical. If then they used Su-24m and marginally Su-34. Now they have a really powerful punch with Su-34, Su-30 and the Su-24m2.
