What It Will Take for Ukraine to Achieve EMS Superiority
With recent arms transfers and sales to Ukraine, how close is Ukraine to reaching EMS superiority in the war with Russia? Host Ken Miller talks with Jeff Fischer, retired US Air Force Colonel, about how Ukraine can achieve EMS superiority and how the allies are playing a role in it. They also dive into the implications for nations supporting Ukraine and explore what methods Russia might use to force Ukraine’s allies to stop their support as winter approaches, the significance of Russia’s recent troop movement and the challenges the US faces in supporting Ukraine that lie far beyond Congress’ decisions.
Jeff Fischer is a retired US Air Force Colonel, longtime aviator and EW officer. He is also a military fiction author and is working on the release of his fourth novel. You can find his books here.
