US Fighter Jets Defeats Russian Jets SU’s and MIG’s at Clear Sky 2018?

At the Clear Sky 2018 Military Exercises, the US pilots of F-15C Eagle and F-15D Eagle easily defeated Russian build, Ukraine operated Su-27 and MiG-29, military expert Anton Lavrov writes on the pages of Izvestia.

According to the expert, conditional combat, imitating the duel between Ukrainian and American fighters at extremely short distances using only cannons is “the only scenario in which Ukrainian aircraft had at least some chance.”

The analyst also emphasizes that “in Russia, the Soviet Su-27 has come a long way of evolution and turned into a magnificent serial Su-30SM and Su-35S”, while “the Ukrainian modernization of the Su-27M1 hung at the turn of the century.”
