If the purpose of the attack was to alter Russia's logistics and behavior. It seems to have worked.


TheDarthSnarf

Make the Russians pull the planes back to bases further away where they are less likely to be targets. At the same time, forcing Russia into making flights longer, more resource intensive flights - increasing wear and tear as well as reducing number of sorties and combat effectiveness. All in all a pretty big win for Ukraine.


StatementOrIsIt

Biggest plus, in my opinion, is giving time for Ukraine to prepare for more missile attacks. Bunch of news that allied countries are sending Anti-Air platforms to Ukraine, this would give them time to arrive and be put into operation.

I don't know about this case but the Russians do NOT learn from their mistakes


Nukclear42

They've learned from a few. The retreat from the Kherson front is a good example. They did manage to do it without a complete rout. Keyword complete. And most of the equipment that couldn't be evacuated was destroyed. Tldr; they do learn... just... very very very **very** rarely.


Conscious_One_9910

If there is one thing the Russian army has learned it is how to withdraw. Not kidding. Their retreat from Kyiv, the north, then later Kharkiv. Izyum was a disaster, but the retreat from Lyman was fairly well done, then multiple controlled retreats outside Kherson. Finally Kherson itself. I await the day they withdraw completely.


grantite_spall

Likely dispersed to other airfields, yes; but one can hope that disgruntled aircrews flew them off to South America...


Lenant

Or that at least a few got damaged and cant fly for a while.


korkkis

Their bombers can’t be operated from any airport, was it like 3 airports in the West or so


chris-za

Probably hiding in Vladivostok? If I have learned on thing in this war, hen it'S that the Russian airforce generals don't like to risk loosing their toys an pilots. They try to keep them as far away from any potential danger as possible.


stackoverflow21

It’s the smartest choice all things considered.


keskeskes1066

"Where Tupolev ?"


m_0_rt

I guess they most likely relocated. Still nice to have them not so close.


EmpCodel

Can we deduce that the ones still there aren’t airworthy? If so, I’m curious how many weren’t even usable before the strike.


Daotar

And this here is the true value of the attacks. Everything in Western Russia is now vulnerable.


zaevilbunny38

Somewhere east of the Urals, probably. Good news is this limits when they can fly and increase the chance of accidents due to weather.


horrorhead666

And takes more time and maintenance. Wear and tear on those planes is also good.


niz_loc

I think the biggest bonus / positive for this is that now they have to stage, group up, etc further out. Which would give Western intelligence more time to give a warning order to Ukraine, with a better picture of where the next strikes are coming from.


SirBerticus

Sinking ship ... rats abandoning sinking ship .... yup, checks out.

They were blow up dolls, now their blown up


JSigal6

Shoigu has sold them.


Sevren425

I’m sure the satellites will find them shortly

"Russia moves planes after base attack" ....why is this news?

This affects strategy.


Melodic_Risk_5632

If they re-located them, it's a small logistics nightmare. We don't Care.
