    They did.
    Took down some 109s, but we talk about some 12 pieces or something dunno
    Irrelevant to the scale of a campaign.
    Remember that Iraq was a friend to the US and west for a while already.
    The good, looming time when they get the fancy stuff from the Soviet Union were gone in the beginning of the 80s.

    Don't forget 4 F18 lost to mid air collisions , 1 F18 lost to s125, at least 5 , F16 lost to crashes or fire in 2003 alone, 1 F14, 1 F15, 1 Tornado, and assorted fixed wing and many helicopter losses
    That's 12 dissimilar Western fighters lost in accidents, while 14 Su-34s shot down with unknown # lost in accidents, if any, since 2/24th.
    Besides, E. Ukraine terrain & weather r identical/similar to S. Russia's, & not like the ME/S Asia in & around Iraq & Afghanistan.
    Conclusion: the VKS isn't doing much worse, but could still do better.

    12 confirmed lost compared with maybe two or three confirmed lost Su-34s... which might have been accidents too?

    This thing is getting ridiculous either.
    They are figuring out the "facts" only to share them, copy them, and quote them, later on, to make it "credible".
    What reminds me of physically nonexisting titles, created only to "public" materials needed for "science research" in numbers, for $.

    Yesterday I saw some posts about Pantsir, and how it was lost in a big number ... here on this forum, but can't find that now.

    The point is, that we have documented the loss of a FEW Pantsir.

    In more than a DECADE of those being used in armed conflicts, with quite serious opponents.

    Including some materials obviously faked, like quite widely known of "Syrian" piece "destroyed" with Bayraktar, where the film shows a classic vehicle observed, turning to be Omanian one after the strike.
    Or lost due to an obvious negligence where those are being parked in a wide open after run out of ammo.

    Each and any single case is widely documented and spread after that for propaganda purposes, but in reality, proves only an absolute rarity of the cases themselves and how much the propagandist expects the sole case to happen.

    Is there a particular reason why you're posting Western war propaganda?

    Or are you subscribing to their pretext of objectivity here?

    Nonetheless, losses are heavy, with at least 49 Russian warplanes confirmed lost as of August 30, and 37 Ukrainian.

    Should Soviet citizens have lapped up Nazi German reports about their casualties too?

    All the sources you quote are pro-ukr. Wikipedia's sources are mainly Oryx and Forbes.
    I can almost guarantee you that Oryx has far-right (Nazi) South African roots.

    Oryx is an African antelope - and SA's upgraded Puma helicopter has that name.
    Spioenkop (Afrikaans) refers to a famous battle in the Anglo-Boer War.

    Su-34 crashed in the city of Yeisk after taking off from the naval air base

    https://t.me/sashakots/36629
    According to my information, the Su-34 of the 277th BAP still fell. So far, the main version is that birds get into the engines on takeoff. The pilots ejected. Possible casualties among local residents. There were no rockets on the plane, but there were shells for the cannon. Their detonation can be heard on video.

    most Soviets didn't have access to German media then; if they had & the NKVD found out, every1 knew what would happen to them, so they kept their thoughts to themselves.

    They sell two engine fighter as safer than sinhle engines because they can run on one engine.

    There plenty of cases of 1 engine not working of the two but that led to a crash.

    That's why single engine jet like su-75 need to be bought. Twin engines are more expensive and not necessarely safer.

    the Su-34 had just taken off and did not have enough height or speed, it lost an engine, probably because of a bird (the base is just on the seashore). there was no time to go back, the same thing happened in Syria with a Su-30
    The problem with the Yeisk base is that the runway ends right on the edge of the city and has fallen on top of a block of flats. The amount of fire is due to having the fuel tank completely full

    IF you had lost an engine in normal flight conditions or even had an engine hit with a Manpad, there would be no problem for landing with one single engine.
    The moment of takeoff, just when leaving the runway, is the most critical moment. It is also a very large and heavy aircraft.

    You are posting straight propaganda, 15 su34 with no proof

    We have only seen 7 at most lost , the 15 is a made up number from some source which claimed that 25% of a regiment was shot down

    Again there is nothing to substantiate that number

    ----

    The numbers will be released when the war is over,

    In the end, we still can say su34 outperformed in an environment where the air defense was many times more effective than the environment in Iraq

    As for crashes, the su34 is worked hard, with such few numbers , they need more planes to rotate those planes and give them less use

    We have seen numerous engine flameouts and loss of power

    Including the one lost over Kharkov some weeks ago

    The 1st source I posted claims to have done an independent study- how would they benefit by posting inaccurate/false data?
    Even after the war, as history shows, there will be conflicting reports & statistics of how many were lost, by type/whom, & by what reason.

    ..just 10 or fewer Su-34Ms in existence,
    Among the confirmed losses are at least 11 other Su-34s, though none of the previous losses were of advanced Su-34Ms. Earlier iteration Su-34s are often valued at between $35 and $40 million, making their losses similarly difficult to swallow for the increasingly cash-strapped Kremlin.
    So, 12+1 shot down by own AD+1 recently crashed in Eisk=14; as my earlier quote was 14, this crash adds 1 more, so it's at least 15.

    It WAS a good plane: https://t.me/vestiukr/51705?single

    https://korrespondent.net/world/4527120-padenye-su-34-na-mnohoetazhku-v-rossyiskom-eiske-poiavylys-foto

    I doubt they'll put helo missiles on it!

    Yes war is an expensive business, but it has it's "up" side as well with job creation and radically increased production levels as a major stimulus to the economy. I would think as a US citizen you should know that?!

    The Ruble as well as the oil price are sitting pretty so in my book this war is currently a win-win situation for the Russians whilst the EU is bleeding.

    Also the Su-34 losses are not nice but the thing is they are currently being produced well. The poor people who lost their lives in the latest incident is much worse than the loss of the aircraft.

    it just means more work and purchases to NAPO for more Su-34's.  Its unfortunate but it happens.

    The Russians are far from being cash strapped. Actually, they seem to be swimming in money and unsure how to use it all.

    And take a look at the dates.
    Most of them lost early in war, when Ukr still had a functioning AD deployed.
    Now imagine we talk a few hundreds of different weapon systems they had there that Russkie supressed&destroyed.
    How NATO is going to replace them?
    Will they even find 500 pieces of AD weapons in the entire NATO if stripping themselves to zero? Laughing Laughing Laughing
    It didn't impress Russkies back then, so why should now? Laughing Laughing Laughing
    Even if they will be able to deliver a 1/10th of the numbers Ukrs had back in Feb/March/April ... What does it change?
