…. Problems for NATO.

"Russia's air force will start to receive new Beriev A-100 Airborne Warning And Control System (AWACS) aircraft starting around late 2020 or early 2021. The AWACS should significantly boost the capability of the Russian Air Force to gain and maintain air superiority when coupled with capable fighter aircraft such as the Sukhoi Su-30SM Flanker-H and the Sukhoi Su-35S Flanker-E.

The Russian Ministry of Defense is expected to sign a production contract for the new AWACS, which would replace the Russian Air Force's existing fleet of Beriev A-50 Mainstays sometime next year. "We expect a detailed discussion with the Defense Ministry of the A-100 aircraft serial deliveries contract by the end of this year or in 2019," Yuri Slyusar, president of Russia's United Aircraft Corporation, told the state-owned TASS news agency …."

Modern media is strange…typically you have two types of articles, sometimes printed in the same media:

- US/Russia is Bleeped text***g scared pf US/Russian new super spade
- New US/Russian super spade is a total S**t

we have our own media similar to National Interest, doing their job with the same enthusiasm and "quality"…

+1 Barin1. Modern media is a business under increasing competition so in order to attract readers/viewers/whatever and therby revenue, they need to stimulate interest. Unfortunately the easiest way is to use dramatic language and graphics. As reader/viewers, if we want information, we need to shift through a fair amount of excrement to find useful and relevant information.

Ah, new airframe for the AWACSski.

Kinda surprised that the US hasn't built a new one yet, those old 707 airframes are getting to the point where there's no spares left!
