    Ha! If so, why Yanks had lost in Vietnam, and don't win in Korea and Afganistan? May be, air superiority doesn't guarantee victory in the war?

    Normal combat records. You can compare results of Russian ASF supporting Aleppo clearance and "Coalition" results of capturing Mosul.
    Two Arabic cities, both was captured by terrorists. Both are attacked by locals Arabic forces (of same level). Only difference is Air support - in one case it is RuASF, in other - "US-led coalition". And who sucks with a smacking?

    Didn't lose the air war. 3:1 ratio. Back then air superiority wasn't a guarantee of victory because of the lack of guided weapons. But it was really the political will that lost the war, combined with only half-fighting it without attacking key targets for most of it.

    You weren't the only ones helping that.

    Facts are facts, all your planes have sucked in air combat.

    Only in your wet maiden dreams.
    In reality our planes and our airforces are more effective that your.

    Man, in Syria we see that Russian combination "smart pilot and dumb weapon" is much more effective that West combination "Dumb pilot and smart weapon".
    And yes, Iran have much more false targets that KSA have guided bombs and missiles.

    Islanders thinking. We, continentalists, know that the best way to win air war is to send tanks on the enemie's airfields.

    If they'd bombed all enemy targets from the start of the war, they'd have won. But they left some areas unbombed for political reasons. And Russia lost in Afghanistan.

    You've hit less ISIS targets than the US.

    Man, jets are just a tools, and if one regiment of fighters was enough to help a locals to win a war - it mean they were enough effective. Losses means nothing - only result matters.

    We hit enough of different terrorists. There no difference between ISIS, FSA and other terrorists. And yes, it is a war, not computer game. Only result matters, not count of killed terrorists.

    Maximum goal (to make there a civilisation) was not achieved, but minimum goal (not allow to Yanks make a real threat for our South) was achieved.

    After the war the USSR moved back out of the surrounding countries, that was how your goal was achieved.
