The American magazine TNI said that the American F-16 fighters are considered old warplanes whose time has passed, and their service life is about to expire.
The truth is that, firstly, that plane is old and despite that it will be sent to participate in air battles, which does not bode well for the Ukrainians, and secondly, that its number is limited, so it will not have a significant impact. Thirdly, you need to train Ukrainian pilots for a long time, from four to five years.

Moreover, the old F-16 cannot be completely compared to the newer generation Russian fighters. The author of the article concluded that Ukraine has turned into a dumping ground for old NATO equipment.
