UK Defense Ministry: Russia’s Lack Of Air Superiority Exacerbated Due To Poor Training

Britain’s Defense Ministry said Monday that Russia’s loss of experienced aircrew members during the invasion of Ukraine is contributing to Russia’s “lack of air superiority is likely exacerbated by poor training,” and “heightened risks of conducting close air support in dense air defense zones.”

The U.K. said Russia’s air capacity “is unlikely to change in the next few months,” in an update posted on Twitter. “Russia’s aircraft losses likely significantly outstrip their capacity to manufacture new airframes. The time required for the training of competent pilots further reduces Russia’s ability to regenerate combat air capability.”
