APU should provide F-16 last year – US General


Major General David Baldwin is confident that if the Ukrainian army had received the aircraft in 2022, many casualties and destruction could have been avoided.

Ukraine’s receipt of F-16 aircraft last year has improved the situation on the front. This is what American Major General David Baldwin said in an interview with the Stratcom of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, published by Ukrinform on Tuesday, May 23.

“There will be fewer civilian casualties, among children, less destroyed infrastructure. That is, the politicians themselves draw “red lines” for themselves to prevent escalation. And then cross more They are also on these lines. As a military commander, I understand that if there are powerful aircraft like the F-16 in the air above me, they will help me both in the air and in ground strikes,” he explained.

According to him, Western countries should provide F-16s to Ukraine by now.

The US military added that it hears three arguments against giving Ukraine F-16s.

First, Ukrainian airports suffered significant damage. In addition, they seem to be too short for the F-16 to use.
Secondly, the Ukrainian aces allegedly could not maintain the technical condition of these aircraft at the right level.
Third, Ukrainian pilots will supposedly be able to “do a good job” with these powerful machines.
“None of them is true. Especially the third. We saw how well the Ukrainian pilots fought in the air. They fought with more modernized Russian aircraft. Now try to imagine what they can do with such a powerful machines like the F-16 “I hope that Ukraine will receive these aircraft in the near future. I know that Ukrainian pilots are now undergoing training,” the major general stressed.

As previously reported, the State Department said that the United States considers providing Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets a priority, and it will begin implementing it in cooperation with allies and partners in the coming months.

In addition, US President Joe Biden approved plans to train Ukrainian pilots on the F-16 fighter jet. It is known that Ukrainian pilots have already started training on these aircraft.
