The Right Combat Jets For Ukraine
There are few cooler machines that go zoom than a jet fighter, and even in the drone age crewed aircraft are proving their worth over Ukraine.
Trouble is, sooner or later Ukraine’s fleet of MiG and Sukhoi combat jets will run out of spare parts.
They were built in the Soviet era, and most of the stuff needed to repair them is made in Russia or tied to Russian-controlled supply chains. What remained of the Soviet-era military industrial base in Ukraine has been largely destroyed by a six month missile barrage.
