According to the portal defense-ua.com, the implementation of the plan should go through 2035. At the first preparatory stage, which will take five years (until 2025 inclusive), it is planned to announce a tender for the purchase of new aircraft. After determining the winner of the tender, it is planned to purchase from 6 to 12 multipurpose fighters (2021-2022). The trial operation of new fighters is planned to begin in 2023-2025. As applicants for delivery are considered Saab JAS-39E / F Gripen, F-16 Block 70/72 and others.
The second five-year stage (until 2030) will be transitional to planned tactical equipment aviation. During this stage, it is planned to establish regular deliveries of new combat aircraft with the simultaneous removal of obsolete equipment from the Air Force. It is planned to supply from 8 to 12 multi-purpose aircraft per year. In addition, the aircraft will have to get rid of certain types of aviation, instead of assault, bomber and reconnaissance aircraft, units equipped with drones will be deployed. By 2030, the re-equipment of transport and special aviation will also begin.
The third five-year stage (until 2035) is to complete the re-equipment of the Air Force of the Armed Forces. By this year, all obsolete equipment should be removed from the Air Force. According to the plan, by 2035 the Ukrainian Air Force should have: at least 4 tactical aviation brigades armed with a modern unified multi-purpose fighter of the 4 ++ generation; at least 4 brigades (regiments) of strike and reconnaissance drones; transport and special aviation brigade; training aviation brigade.
It is planned to spend about 200 billion UAH ($ 7,5 billion) on the purchase of new multi-functional fighters, while it is planned to allocate about 320 billion hryvnias for 15 years to retool the Air Force. Part of the funds for this program in Kiev is planned to be received from partner countries and NATO allies.
