Yes totally! Even a hard core Russian supporter like me thinks this is a disaster. FFS this is the flagship of the BSF!
You seemed to have missed this part above but anyway thousands of Americans have died in the countless wars since WWII (100 000+ and counting). All the three wars the Soviets and Russian were involved in since WWII pales in comparison. However you yankees sure do know how to slaughter civilians! Literally millions have suffered this fate.
This is probably the first thing in which you are right, the USA did lose more soldiers in wars after WW2 than the USSR/Russia, but also they had so many more wars and successes in them.
But this could be changed very soon with this war in Ukraine, we know that Russia suffered thousands of Kia so far. About 500 KIA in the first week alone. And it is unclear if that number included MIA. And even in this category, Russia is "better" in the last 50 years, as if you exclude Vietnam and Korea, Russia had 15K in Afghanistan, more than 10K Kia in Chechenia and USA lost far less in the same period.
But "land wars" have nothing to do with Slava class so I will stop here.
