How many jets has Russia lost in Ukraine?
But not by much. Independent analysts have confirmed, through photo and video evidence, the destruction of 184 Russian aircraft. The Ukrainians have captured another 73 aircraft from the Russians for a total of 257 confirmed Russian losses. But here's the catch.

13 that Russia had also lost 2,511 tanks, 5,167 armored fighting vehicles, 3,935 vehicles and fuel tanks, 1,556 artillery systems, 357 multiple launch rocket systems, 183 air defense systems, 268 airplanes, 240 helicopters, 1,182 drones, and 16 boats.
And it's a staggering figure as well. According to the Dutch warfare research group Oryx, Russia has lost 1,450 tanks since the war began, nearly 900 of which have been damaged or destroyed. The rest were abandoned by the Russians, and many of those ultimately have since been captured by the Ukrainians.
But the Ukrainian air force still is flying and fighting—making up with aggression and creativity what it lacks in numbers and high technology.
In theory Russia has thousands of tanks waiting in giant warehouses and vehicles parks which can be reactivated. According to the Military Balance 2021, quoted in Kyiv Independent, Russia has over 10,000 battle tanks in storage, mainly T-72s and T-80s.

No, Russia's accelerating tank losses are the result of leadership and morale problems more than they are any technological imbalance on the battlefield. Half of the tanks the Russians have written off since early September were abandoned by their crews and seized by the Ukrainians.

How many SU 34 has Russia lost?
However, the Armed Forces of Ukraine assumed that the Su-30SM and Su-25 were shot down. According to the OSINT portal Oryx, the Russians have already lost 15 Su-34/Su-34М bomber jets.
These tanks are only used in NATO by their respective countries. There are roughly 200 tanks in service for each tank type, making a total of 800, plus roughly 1500 Leopard 2's and roughly 2500 M1 Abrams, the majority of which are M1A2's and the rest M1A1's.
U.S. officials have said that Russia has lost between 60,000 and 80,000 troops in its misguided war on Ukraine. A soldier watches Ukrainian artillerymen fire an M109 tracked self-propelled howitzer at Grafenwoehr Training Area, Germany, May 12, 2022.
The total number of Russian tanks destroyed, knocked out, or captured by the AFU since the war began was, by that count 2892 vehicles: almost exactly twice the tank losses confirmed by Oryx.
Indeed, Ukraine has lost just 12 helicopters since Russia widened its war on the country back in February. Russia has lost 52 of its own, higher-flying helicopters.
The country has more aircraft now than it did three weeks ago, the official said. A day earlier, Pentagon press secretary John Kirby said Ukraine had received additional fighter aircraft to add to its numbers.
Russia has likely lost half its tanks, used up most of its precision-guided weapons and suffered tens of thousands of casualties so far in its war against Ukraine, the Pentagon's top policy official said Tuesday.

The US dominates the airspace when it comes to the world's most advanced fighter jets. However, today's list of top ten fighter jets still includes some close competition. Three years ago Lockheed Martin's F-35 might not have even made the list.
