You keep repeating same shit over and over again. Russian air force has full air supremacy over Ukraine. As soon as Ukraine fighter takes off, it is getting destroyed (either by SAM or Su-35).Vann7 wrote:
What all war experts agree on russia performance ,is that is highly inadequate , the airforce role in russia , have been a colossal failure , this is what pro russian sources are saying. No air superiority at all , the only planes they risk sending are su-25 and not for close air support , but for throwing unguided rockets , from stand off position ,from far distances.. so how they can know the mission was success if they don't have visual confirmation/video recorded of the destruction of the target?
They send all sorts of planes, depends on a mission. From Tu-160 for long range strikes, Tu-22M3 for carpet bombing when needed, Su-35 for air superiority, Su-34 for ground attack with large caliber missiles (Kh-31, Kh-59) and Su-25 for everything else.Vann7 wrote:

Again, Ka-52 are being used extensively with bunch of videos.
Stop repeating your imagination about Russian air force inccopetence.
The internet is full of destruction of russian positions by guide artillery and drones flying day and night all the time over russian soldiers zones..
Internet is full of Ukr propaganda. Majority of videos published by Ukraine Defense ministry was either fake (older videos from military exercises or other conflicts), videos from games or even videos showing destruction of UKR army with modified captions claiming that it was Russians being knock out.
Put like this, Ukraine had 50+ all mighty Bayraktars and we saw few videos only. Ask yourself is that enough if you have a fleet of 50 drones ? You can't find more than 10 videos of successful use of Bayraktar even though Drone itself is remotely controlled and everything is being recorded. And yet you claim that Russia air defense is not effective.
3) failure in using spy planes ,to stop artillery positions.
4)failure in integrating air and ground operations , between airforce ,drones and land forces.
5)failure with electronic warfare ,in keeping enemy drones blind , not providing intel to their artillery.
Only failure is your ability to accept the fact that everything you counted is being extensively and sucefully used.
7) another colossal failure of russian military is in the documentation of their victories , not showing
how they destroy those long convoys of ukie armor from above , when they move , or it is because the airforce is not bombing ukros convoys at all?
Russia is winning the war and that is their main documentation.
How much video evidences did US show in Iraq or Afghanistan ?
Try to find videos of A-10s or Ah-64 in action in Iraq ? You will find at least 10 times more videos of Russian HW in Ukraine.
Simply, they are not busy to with Twitter war.
basically NATO have proven beyond any doubts, that they can make very near obsolete the russian airforce.. since in ukraine , most of the combat is done by land forces artillery and cruise missiles that is very limited the damage they can do , across an entire battlefield , you can't win wars with cruise missiles alone.. airforce needs to be the one that leads the army not the other way.
You can't win the war with Caliber and Iskander missiles for sure, but you can send your enemy back to the stone age in a few hours. If this was real war, where aim was to destroy Ukraine, Russia could knock out all power station in a first day of combat and then we will see how much of those UKR propaganda videos would be uploaded to the internet.
Same goes for Drones, they are simply nice toys to have but they can't change the outcome much.
Don't forget that each caliber brings 300-500kg of explosive and Iskander 500-700kg.
Bayraktar and those fancy drones carry micro munition, 22kg warhead in total, which is indeed "Micro".
I mean, what you can do with 22kg warhead except to make good video ?
-Russia also needs better bombs..smart bombs , loitering munition with tv camera and artificial intelligence and glide bombs..
They do have everything for the last 20-30 years.
Putin attempts to impress the west with "olympics bullshit" , cost the nation up to 100 billions dollars , from 2010 to 2018 , in shinny new roads , trains , hotels , olympic avenues ,stadiums of football, money he could have better used to properly equip its military ,specially its very weak airforce ,that is the reason ,they facing so much problems in ukraine. and it will only get worse in a 10x time fold or more , when the day comes for them to fight a major power in the west. if israel airforce was aiding ukraine army there , the story will have been totally different ,and russia forces pushed all the way back to moscow , if the war was only using conventional weapons.. the only thing russia have ,to keep nato away of russian land ,is their nuclear weapons , because their conventional forces are not good enough ,to face a major conflict with NATO today.
Only one not good enough to face a mayor conflict is NATO not Russia.
