The world gets ready for the "clash of the century", the US sends F-16 to Ukraine, this is why the warplanes are expected to bring the big turn in the conflict with Russia

The supply of F-16 aircraft to Ukraine will undoubtedly be a turning point for Kiev, but still "the devil is in the details". However, there seems to be an endless list of questions about them, such as when they will be sent, how many there will be or what weapons they will be supplied with. America's allies, mainly Germany and Great Britain, first unofficially and then officially expressed a willingness to send their weapons and signaled Washington to take the lead. Biden eventually announced at a press conference that he would send Abrams tanks. . Berlin and London also announced Leopard 2 and Challenger 2 tanks for Kiev. At the G7 summit in Japan, US officials said their country would support a "
The F-16 is built by US defense contractor Lockheed Martin. It is a multi-role combat aircraft designed for the United States Air Force. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other equipment. Its payload typically consists of two 907 kg bombs, two AIM-9 Sidewinder short-range air-to-air missiles, two AIM-120 medium-range air-to-air missiles, and two 2,400 lb (1,088 kg) outboards. The plane can travel at speeds of up to 1,500 mph and has a range of more than 2,002 miles. It weighs 19,700 lb (8,935 kg) without fuel and has a maximum take-off weight of 37,500 lb (17,010 kg). In 1991, during the Gulf War, F-16s were used to attack airfields, military production facilities and other targets. He is also in the US conflicts in Afghanistan, Iraq, Kosovo and the Persian Gulf. They are also held by several countries other than the US, including Poland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark.
Clash of the Century
The delivery of the aircraft will be a special moment in military history, given the complex nature of combat aircraft operations and maintenance logistics. First, there could be a clash between an iconic Western aircraft (the F-16) and Russian equivalents such as the Su-30, Su-35 and possibly the MiG-31. The so-called "Clash of the Century" will be closely watched by strategists, military commanders, pilots and scientists, as it could determine the direction aerospace and defense science will take in the coming decades. The result of the collision between the F-16 and the Su-30/35 will reverberate everywhere. If F-16s are sent to Ukraine the result would no doubt be eagerly watched around the world. An Indian military expert, who did not want to be quoted, said that so far, we have seen fights between F-16s and Sukhoi jets, whether between India and Pakistan or China and Taiwan, but not a full-scale confrontation. If Ukraine does in fact buy the F-16, then for the first time, the most advanced Russian fighters such as the Su-35 and Su-30SM2 will have the ability to shoot down American-origin fighter jets like never before.
Dorëzimi në Ukrainë
Sa i përket dorëzimit përfundimtar në Ukrainë, ka dy faktorë që mund ta vonojnë procesin. Së pari, meqenëse F-16 prodhohen nga SHBA, amerikanëve do t'u duhet t'u japin leje kombeve të tjera për t'i dhënë avionët e tyre F-16. Së dyti, F-16 janë avionët më të eksportuar në botë, pasi ka shumë prej tyre. Ndërkohë, sipas një zyrtari të cituar nga CNN, trajnimi i pilotëve ukrainas nuk pritet të ndodhë në SHBA dhe ka të ngjarë të kryhet tërësisht në Evropë. Por personeli amerikan do të marrë pjesë në stërvitje së bashku me aleatët e tij atje. Sidoqoftë, transferimi përfundimtar, si tanket M1A2, do të zgjasë të paktën një vit, ose mbase edhe më shumë, siç kanë zbuluar zyrtarët. F-16-të janë një platformë edhe më e ndërlikuar. CNN tha se trajnimi pritet të zgjasë "disa muaj". Sakaq, nuk është zbuluar se cilat vende do të marrin pjesë.
