Russland riskiert Flugzeugverluste für taktische Gewinne in der Ukraine

March 6, 2024 - Russlands jüngste Gewinne im Osten sind durch aggressivere Flugzeug Unterstützung an der Front ermöglicht worden. Das wiederum hat der Ukraine geholfen, mehr feindliche Flugzeuge abzuschiessen.

Ukraine's military said at the end of February that its forces had destroyed 13 Russian aircraft since February 17. This included 10 Su-34 fighter-bomber jets, two Su-35 jets and one Russian A-50 airborne early warning and control aircraft.

On Saturday, Ukraine's air force then said it had downed a Russian Su-34 fighter-bomber, just one day after Kyiv said it had taken out another Su-34 close to the Russian-controlled southern city of Mariupol.

Although difficult to pin down a precise figure for any Russian aircraft, a single A-50 radar detection plane is worth a ballpark figure of $300 million. Each Su-34 is thought to come with a price tag between approximately $36 and $50 million, and an Su-35 costs in the region of $40 million, according to Newsweek.
