Russia Uses 40N6 Missile and A-50 AWACS to Destroy F-16s
The potential arrival of F-16 fighter jets in Ukrainian airspace has thrust the Russian S-400 air defense system and its A50 Airborne Early Warning and Control or AWACS partner into the spotlight. This deadly duo promises to become a formidable obstacle for these agile F-16s warbirds, potentially shaping the future of the air war in Ukraine.
This speculation emerges in response to official statements from Moscow last October, asserting that their military has successfully fused the S-400 with the A-50 AWACS to shoot 24 Russian aircraft in a span of 5 days. While this claim hasn’t been fully verified, military experts speculate that Russia would probably employ a comparable tactic to counter the F-16 threats.
In today’s episode, we’ll explore this strategy further, specifically examining its potential effectiveness against the upcoming F-16 fighter jets. But first, let’s briefly revisit some crucial aspects of the F-16 fighter jets’ stories in the ongoing Russo-Ukraine war.
