Russia’s Air War in Ukraine

March 24, 2022

Episode Notes:

In the first week of Russia’s war against Ukraine, the Russian air force — especially its fixed-wing component — appeared to be missing in action. Now, with three more weeks of data, we’re revisiting the issue to explore how the battle between the Russian and Ukrainian air forces have shaped the trajectory of the conflict.

To discuss the air war in Ukraine, we’re joined today on the Warcast by Justin Bronk. Justin is the Senior Research Fellow for Airpower and Technology in the Military Sciences team at Royal United Services Institute in London.
