    It's definitely about using the 40N6 with the A 50 and shooting below the horizon at maximum distances. The 40N6 missile has an active warhead.

    ..and when their wunder-panzers get annilihated by Russian forces, the Murkanz will use this as an excuse why they weren't up to snuff, and will "explain" that if they were full spec then they would have slapped down the Russian mud-hut dwellers. Its predictable and brain-dead nonsense, but that is what desperate liars do when they choose to ignore reality. Razz

    what arrow said. It finally proves the complex datalinking of the s400 with awacs. I bet even modern fighters are connected as well as with shorads.

    They are flexing. Giving the west a hint that f-16 fighters light up via radio waves just as well as a mig-29 and that the f-16 fighters will get shot down with impunity. Also letting the west know that there are still many tricks up the sleeve of the Russian MIC which have not been revealed yet. Good to hear.

    This kind of interconnectedness will be key in stopping cruise missile attacks and multi system drone and missile attacks.

    but but Russians stole the designs of US supa dupa missile technology. They stole it in such a way that they were able to build it, while the US couldn't because they took all the copies

    AFAIK they received 2 batteries. One is in Kiev, the other apparently somewhere in Kharkov back in the day.

    One can't just plan the "best" scenario and suddenly roll Tu-22M3 with glide FAB's.

    The last and most hilarious jerking was about ATACSM
    Even western pundits had to admit that at least 15 of 18 ATACMS were shot down.

    that the f-16 fighters will get shot down with impunity.
    The AD systems and fighter jets are only one side of the coin. The other are the new suicide drones.
    Some planes were destroyed on the ground with those drones, possibly connected to recon complexes
    of all kind.
    Some people claim that these events in the last weeks were some sort of training for the incoming(?) F-16s.

    The RPG 29v penetrated the better protected Challenger 2 on the thickest part of the armor (lower hull front glacis) on two occasions leading to both drivers having there foot amputated, they had to add extra armor to the lower front hull called Dorchester, and the USA forbade Iraq from buying new stocks of RPG 29Vs

    If the Russians have already shot down Ukrainian fighters using the S-400 and A 50, i.e. using the 40N6 missile below the horizon, this is very bad news for the F-16. In addition, they have 48N6DM and 9M82MD missiles at higher altitudes, and also R-37M. These are only very long-range missiles, and there are many others, as we know.

    This can only mean one thing

    AWACS is the most important aircraft necessary right now

    The entire country will become aware of this, that A50U with S400 has downed ATACMS and 24 Ukrainian aircraft in 5 days

    This means that there is only one reason that drones, stormshadow, and other missiles ever hit their targets, and that's the lack of AWACS

    I repeat, this is the most important aircraft needed today

    Would love to see how F-16 would be hyped as new wunderwaffen. I'll be honest it would be rather 1 sided fight with Su-35S's with R-37.

    The F-16 However with AMRAAM's might allow Ukraine some fighting chance over Black Sea, escorting their Su-24 with Storm Shadow. It might even offer even chance against early Su-30SM's. Especially if NATO realtime intel is provided. When they deploy F-16 over Black sea tho i expect NATO assets would withdraw, or they might become victim of stray BVR missile from Russian side.

    Having them airborne 24/7 is impossible. Ukraine can just listen with its EW systems if any Awacs is airborne, if there is none launch the missiles.

    Your analysis is wrong.

    AWACS have been the most important aircraft for decades. If you can't control and coordinate your planes and monitor your foe you have lost before the battle began

    So in order to disable a whole US carrier air wing , you just have to hit the AWACs plane.

    You could make a small long distance drone and drop something on the awacs plane

    If an awacs plane is that important , it's a problem in itself

    NATO ISR is the problem as I mentioned, not much can be done realistically speaking, best to learn how to work under it and this is not new. Ukrainians idiocity was best Russian ISR in their counter offense.

    And after Donbass, in my opinion Russia can put this into slow burner and let war production do its work. Anyway, in my opinion, Ukrainians will have an option to suicide against Russia or negotiate, because after this counter offence, they can’t expect much. Their whole shtick is now hoping on F-16…

    In the south, advancing by Optyne is a diversionary advance, which only forces Ukrainians to have to man those sections of the front

    The main push, where storm Z and Wagner will enter, is south west of the terrikon

    They need Stepove, that's why they lost so many tanks to take it

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine #50 - Page 6 E4187f10

    Once they get in, they can cutoff MSR by fire

    It will be a tough battle, which will cost thousands of lives to take it

    But this is the cost of such an inept leadership, with such an approach to the war

    They're literally sandbox testing urban assault, from Mariupol, Bakhmut, Lisichansk, Severodonetsk, Soledar to Avdeyevka

    This is how fucked up it is, the men who were in Bakhmut, suffered tremendously from the scale of battle

    And what will it be here? Any different?

    No, instead of protecting ours, and leveling the nazis like Israelis are doing

    Ours will storm a fortefied coke plant, with nothing but a pat on the back, and congratulatory postings







    Because you have an ethnic Ukrainian president who does not want to hurt his fellow ethnic Ukrainians too much.

    All it does is being soft on a bunch of genocidal butchers.

    The best way would be to use the vacuum bombs; it has been claimed that they were already used in Chechnya during the 1990's, so I have no idea why they are not being used.

    No, it's A-50U+ C-400. And targeting using a distributed system, when the target is illuminated by one interceptor, and another launches a missile.
    But I would not believe in the figure of 24 downed aircraft. Most likely, at least half of their targets were probably fake imitators. It is unlikely that the UAF now have so much active aviation to lose 24 aircraft in 5 days)

    Don't bet on that.
    It was all or nothing action.
    Facade of support for 404 is falling down as we speak.
    They are hungry for "likes".
    I guess we see an end of all flyable 29s all over Europe, refurbished for months in Poland and Bulgaria. Wouldn't be much surprised if some of those are from, lets say, khm khm, Armenia.
    Plus we have a clear show from Russkie how they will deal with 16s once delivered ... with the new stuffing or the usual pork chop stuffing ...

    Those mig would be better unmanned and carrying 4 fab-500 for a suicide drone role. Launching randomly ARMs missiles proved to be a useless thing. With a one way ticket they could hit something important at least.
