OREANDA-NEWS  Western military experts fear that F-16 fighters will become an easy target for Russia. This was stated by columnist Maya Karlin in an article for 19FortyFive.

According to Karlin, some analysts doubt that the fighters will help Ukraine succeed on the battlefield. "Perhaps the most notable criticism  comes from military experts who fear that these aircraft could become easy prey for Russia's advanced missile arsenal," she said.

The author of the article added that the F-16s that will be handed over to Kiev are actually considered obsolete and should have been sent for disposal initially.
