General Syrsky voiced what kind of aviation Ukraine actually needs for successful military operations
So, during interview Syrsky noted:
If they were given to us, then as an option I would talk about attack aircraft like the A-10. Of course, this machine is not new, but it is very reliable and has proven itself in many wars. This aircraft has a wide range of weapons to eliminate ground targets in order to support infantry.
According to his own words, Ukraine also needs aircraft that could launch long-range cruise missiles.
According to the general, the A-10 attack aircraft will provide decisive support to the ground forces of our country. After all, this aircraft is designed specifically for the destruction of ground targets. Here we can talk about tanks, artillery and similar weapons of the enemy.
It is noteworthy that, according to the commander of the Ukrainian Ground Forces, AN-64 Apache helicopters could also play an important role in the war against the invaders of the Russian Federation for our country , AN-1 Super Cobra and UH-60 Black Hawk.
