How exactly will it become a threat to the Russians? If the F-16s get deployed in large numbers like atleast in the "hundreds", and if every single of these theoretical "hundreds" is of the latest block standards, then it will be a major problem for the RuAF, but as a member highlighted here, the Ukrainians would not recieve top of the line standard blocks but rather older ones and that too in limited numbers, like 20-25, that is hardly two squadrons, don't see how they would cause any major concern to RuAF if this would be the case. Let's see how things play out though.Then it will become a serious problem for the Russians, at least until they figure something out.
YES! Infact WC Abhinandan's MiG which was shot down was also carrying R-77s, the loadout of his MiG-21 was like this: 2X R-73s & 2X R-77s.Off topic. But were we carrying R-77s during this encounter in 2019
If F-16s enter the fight against Russian flankers then this would not be the first time Flanker series have faced off F-16s, Su-30MKIs in 2019 faced off against Pakistani F-16s. NATO wants to escalate the conflict more and more.I am eager to find out - Flankers v/s F-whatever. Let's get it on!!
