Ukraine says it needs western fighter jets and tanks—many experts think F16s would be ideal for meeting Ukraine's requirements.
Mick Krever writing for CNN, makes the following points:
- Western fears that more advanced weaponry could provoke Putin have lessened.
- The 1970s era, but updated F-16, is highly manoeuvrable, carrying six air-to-air or air-to-surface missiles.
- Ukraine wants to replace Soviet-era MiG-29 and Sukhoi Su-27 jets with western aircraft.
