After the war in Ukraine is over? Assume the following: 1) The war in Ukraine will continue for at least 3-6 months. 2) The Russian military will continue to underperform making any progress solely by raw numbers and firepower. 3) Ukraine will continue to inflict disproportionately heavy losses on the Russians. 4) Ultimately, the Russians will succeed in doing something like opening a clear land route to Crimea, then they will declare victory and limp home with as much dignity as possible. My opinions: 1) The sinking of the Moskva shows that a large vintage warship with advanced SAMs is no substitute for an actual carrier and its air wing. So I think the Russians will attempt to get their one carrier (Kuznetsov) and its air wing fully operational. 2) Overall the Russian air force has performed poorly. They need a major investment in not only air craft and munitions but funding for training and maintenance. 3) The Russians should give up their reliance on rather cheap tanks and go ahead with significant formations of more advanced vehicles.
