The two-day NATO exercise “Ramstein Alloy”, the purpose of which is to strengthen the cooperation of the air forces of the Baltic republics, starts today in the airspace of the Baltic region, reports RIA News Post of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense.

"In these planned, held three times a year, the exercises will improve the skills of military units of the NATO Air Force, observation and control units, skills of the air police and other facilities in the Baltic region," the release said.

French Mirage 2000 aircraft based in Lithuania as part of the air police mission and German Eurofighter Typhoon deployed in Estonia are involved in the exercise. In addition, the fighters of the NATO partner countries - Finland and Sweden will take part in the maneuvers.

“According to the scenario, the transport plane of the Lithuanian Air Force C-27J Spartan loses touch. Additional control and management of the aircraft will be carried out by an E-3A aircraft with a NATO warning and control system (AWACS). Latvian Air Force will allocate a helicopter for the implementation of the rescue scenario. As part of the exercise, the interaction of the air force with specialists from the flight control center of a civilian airport in Latvia and Estonia will be checked, ”the agency reports citing the Lithuanian military department.

          We have more of them! I saw three at once on one base! But all are not armed. And what for armed helicopters if the only military danger comes only from an ally because of a puddle? laughing

    Let it not be embarrassing that the Baltic Air Force does not have combat aircraft. They have quite modern western-made radar detectors connected to the network associated with the NATO Air Defense Command in V. Europe and air guides trained to bring friendly aircraft from the front line (there is also Afghan combat experience). In addition, these same gunners train in a single program at Western European training grounds. Such internships are permanent.

    Finns and Swedes will arrive for the exercise; lately they have stepped up military contacts with NATO, therefore, it is necessary to strengthen defensive echelons against them, and not only against the Baltic states, which historically have prevented from "straightening the front" and landing more thoroughly in the Baltic Sea against them. he cut the waters, then the Swedes and the Schfinnians sat quietly and did not rypalis. Possession of nuclear weapons is one thing, but parity in conventional weapons is also an important aspect of security. I say this to all members of the Iskander sect.

      so iskander probably should work on these radars?

      And what to do then? So again, only Iskander will help, but suppress the brave Latvian radio operators. Under Rostov, a division is being formed, RTOs in the Baltic are being built. What else is needed, tell me?

          These are universal modules and their wheeled all-terrain vehicles stand side by side in shelters. In peacetime they work from stationary towers providing "air police" and gaze behind our North-West, and when fully ready they will go out into the forests or fields. In addition to them, radar simulators will start working . "Iskander" sharpened for strikes against stationary targets will wait for the brigade command to throw off suitable coordinates for him, and meanwhile he himself at this time may be under attack. Like all command and control links in our operational depth, these important strike systems will be under pressure from "Tomahawks" and other high-point sea and air-based. In a conventional war, this is only high-precision long-range "artillery" "" ", but certainly not a 100% lifesaver from the possible deployment of a NATO strike force in the Baltic States.
          Honestly, instead of comparing the possible alignment of forces in a bad scenario, in the comments they will now begin to upload photos of Estonian reservists and relish burnt flower beds 1000000 times.
          There are also more questions about Iskander's nuclear stuffing, but few answers.
          1.) where is the "red line" after which the artillery brigade will charge nuclear missiles.
          2.) Will it have time to get a command and shoot if NATO, as in 41st, will arrange for all of us a "strategic surprise" like in 41st, and before that the country will be shocked by the likeness of the 17th year?
          3.) Will our elite manage to take relatives out of London before the Tu-95s enter the combat course.

            Everything is fine, but you forgot about the main thing, about ICBMs, and then we read the Doctrine, where there is a threat ... Point one is clear, point two if Iskander is located 500 km from Latvia, Tomogavku fly for him forty minutes in a straight line, he must shoot back and make legs, firing range allows with a margin. We have one thing that always helps out - the depth of the territory. According to the elites, it is the ruling one (like Yakunin, Shoigu, Sechin and the Most Serene), but not losing power (Deripaska), who are not allowed to travel abroad, their property is here, and considerable. And BAB demonstrated that it expects used contraceptives. The elite are different now, they are better here.

The fact that the very brightest Menshikov, the well-known embezzler and the richest aligarch in the Republic of Ingushetia, did not prevent him from being a patriot when fighting, here the analogy is Tsar feeds or Al ... well, Ramzan said there to Ramadan laughing

    Let the Balts once again please themselves with the "power" of NATO in their region. The exercises on the other side make it possible to train our air defense on real targets. Therefore, we also have some plus from this.

    Well, it’s understandable with the French that both of them are favorites in the EU, so to speak, but these (Finns and Swedes) are trying to get into it, if they happen to fit in anyway. And what about other European NATO partners that there are no planes or a desire to anger a bear.

    They scoff at the Balts, for them a helicopter flight is half of the state budget. Children's war games.
