2024? Is it finally fucking happening?

I suspect the Swedish ASC 890s are already there. I've seen Norwegian drones in their stead on flight radar. Ukrainian pilots have already trained on the f16 abroad. Once they have the f16s and ASC 890s together things will be very interesting.

I really wish we’d just practice upcycling a few squadrons from AMARG and then just hand them to Ukraine. Great way to practice the process at some scale, get some real utility out of some otherwise disused airframes that’d probably be scrapped after sitting in the desert for 10 more years, and help Ukraine. What’s not to like?
