Super Tucano


A shame for the Ukrainian Air Force, the Ukrainian Air Force is writing off the Soviet MiG-29 and Su-27 and adopting the Super Tucano

The Ukrainian Air Force can endure a terrible shame.

The Ukrainian authorities, refusing to further use the Soviet and Russian MiG-29 and Su-27 fighters, are planning to transfer the country's air force to Brazilian Super Tucano aircraft. Despite the fact that these attack aircraft are used by a number of countries, in fact, the use of such combat aircraft is called a shame for any country that does not have the ability to protect itself from external threats.

Information about Ukraine's intentions to abandon the Soviet Su-27 and MiG-29 fighters appeared more than once, however, according to the Russian publication "Reporter", now the possibility of switching to Brazilian attack aircraft is being considered, and, obviously, this is a firm decision of the Ukrainian authorities.

“In a modern war, it is extremely important to have air supremacy. The state of the Ukrainian Air Force is depressing: by 2025, most of the Su-27 and MiG-29 remaining from the USSR will have to be written off. In order not to be left without combat aviation at all, Kiev needs to start the process of updating its fleet and retraining its pilots right now. Experts point out that fundamental decisions should be made by the end of 2020. The first applicant for this role can fly to Ukraine not from NATO countries, but from distant Brazil. It is a lightweight turboprop attack aircraft originally designed to combat Colombian guerrillas. Its maximum speed is 590 km / h, flight range - 1 km, combat load 330 tons. The light attack aircraft can carry two 1,6 mm FN Herstal M12,7 machine guns, 3 mm automatic cannons, air-to-air and air-to-ground missiles, as well as cluster, incendiary and precision bombs. However, the “Brazilian” also has a national competitor. Several years ago, Motor Sich began to modernize the Soviet Yak-20 by installing an AI-52S turboprop engine on it, ”the Russian newspaper reports.Reporter».

Experts note that such a scenario is quite possible, however, experts draw attention to the fact that the Ukrainian Air Force will only win in the number of its Air Force, but not in quality, and therefore, the existing combat aircraft, albeit Soviet times, should be preserved by Ukraine.

LDARZ, NARP, MiG repair quietly repair Soviet equipment

Iran can modernize the F 14 and Hercules planes, because Ukraine will not be able to modernize its air fleet, since they themselves were involved in the production of these aircraft.

"... the operating combat aircraft, albeit Soviet times, should be preserved by Ukraine."
And where will they service and repair them? In an aggressor country?
