I remember hearing about how we were trying to get the Ukrainians A10s, but they didn’t want them. I hadn’t understood why but looked back into it. Makes sense but I do think they should have taken them. Perhaps I’d think differently if I were a Ukrainian pilot.

https://www.avweb.com/aviation-news/air-force-may-give-a-10s-to-ukraine/


Ukraine already has SU-25 “Frogfoot” which is on par with the A-10 in terms of mission and effectiveness’ish. I won’t argue the A-10 vs SU-25 debate… they are both robust and heavily armed/armored CAS aircraft. Giving the Ukrainians the A-10 would be duplicating mission/role and adding significant logistical and training burdens they just can’t manage now.

Ther request for F-16s is/was a bit more logical. A very good multi role fighter wound bode well against the single role Russian fighter and bomber fleet and be better suited for the theater than their own fleet. You will still have the logistical burdens, but it’s more worth it for a different type of aircraft mission.

Was very strange seeing a HARM fire off a SU-27 rail. 😳

Ah, that makes sense. I wasn’t aware of the SU-25 but I’m fairly ignorant of most things so that’s not a surprise. I appreciate the info. F-16 makes sense.

Now obviously any information being given to an unfriendly power that were currently in a proxy war with is a big no no, but can someone explain to me, what use is the medical information of some american soldiers to the Russians?

What does private x's high blood pressure have to do with the war Russia is losing in Ukraine? Why do they even want that information?

They are offering up the medical records to provide Russian Intelligence with a means to leverage information out of those people or their loved ones.
