NATO in the Baltics will increase the Spanish aircraft


According to the newspaper, the mission will begin in April. It will be attended by pilots 15 th wing of the Spanish Air Force, stationed in Zaragoza.

"On the upcoming assignment, Spanish Defense Minister Maria Dolores de Cossedal, who visited the airbase in Zaragoza last Thursday, let it slip," said the publication.

In addition to observing the airspace, the duties of the pilots will include training for F-18 pilots.

“After the events in Ukraine and in Crimea, in NATO 2014, NATO’s relations with Moscow worsened. Since then, the bloc's allies, bordering Russia, have been insisting on increasing the alliance’s military presence in their territories to show Putin’s readiness to defend. NATO responded to requests from allied countries, in particular, by deploying missile defense systems in Romania and sending troops to Poland and other former Soviet republics, ”the newspaper recalled.

In addition, the alliance has increased the activity of the mission to patrol the skies of the Baltic states near the borders with Russia. “It is this mission that the pilots of the Zaragoza airbase will join on a rotational basis,” concludes the publication.

          Spanish pilots to join NATO mission in Estonia to strengthen patrols of Baltic airspace

          And I remember, in 1936-1939, Soviet pilots helped defend the sky of Spain from the Nazis. Every sixth Soviet pilot died. And now the pilots of Spain fly near our borders: here it is, Spanish gratitude.

              Well, it’s all in color, in terms of the spiral of history. In the Leningrad direction, there are continuous coincidences, whose heirs have just not been noted in our Chukhon border area. The Dutch, the Belgians, the Spaniards, again ... The Germans were quietly so, cautious, but didn’t break for long and also climbed into Estonia in the form of a Luftwaffe. Beginners, perhaps, are only shaves and mattresses. And so yes - it’s quite a reconstruction ... or masturbation? request P.S. One of the twin cities of St. Petersburg is Barcelona.

            Why did you decide that someone wanted to thank the USSR for its actions in Spain in the 30s? On the contrary, the intensity of hatred for the USSR was so great that there was no shortage of volunteers in the "Blue Division" (the size of the German infantry corps or the Soviet combined arms army).
            The Spaniards really supported Franco. And his regime for a long time survived the regimes of Mussolini-Hitler. This would not have happened if Franco had not had the support of the people. And in WWII, Spain did not participate.

              I will answer you with another quote: “The majority of the population always remains“ red ”, although there are deep discrepancies between the individual groups of“ red ”, noted the correspondent of the Zurich newspaper Di Weltwoche on June 12, 1942. For the author of the article, “red” were all those who did not come to terms with fascism.
              In the mountains of Andalusia, Asturias and Leon, partisan detachments continued to operate there, created there immediately after the capture by the Francoists of these areas during the years of the Civil War. The Communist Party of Spain maintained contact with the partisans. Compared to other banned political parties, she was able to achieve the greatest success in creating a network of illegal organizations. “There were not very many Spanish Communists, but they were the only group in Spain. which was well organized and disciplined ”http://hotelsspain.ru/oteli/

                This is "socialist" propaganda. Apparently, the people of Spain supported Franco. Which gave him the opportunity to reign until his death. And the enrollment of volunteers in the "Blue Division" did not stall. Apparently organized and disciplined communists were recorded. Although, no, where did they come from in Spain in such quantities.

        The Spaniards are also not a homogeneous people, and therefore they had a civil war then, albeit with foreign intervention. Franco won not only because Hitler helped him, but also because then there were 2 Air Force in Spain --- national and republican.

    The 31st wing of the Pallau Islands air brigade demanded that NATO leaders be allowed to patrol the Baltic coasts if their aircraft, no matter what year of release, are due to the fact that it is impossible to make out targets for bombing in the tiny territory of the Pallau state. And everyone wants to train.

    The first Spanish squadron on the eastern front made 449 sorties, of which 178 were combat (84 - to attack). According to Spanish data, 11 enemy aircraft were destroyed (4 of them on the ground). Own losses amounted to 4 pilots and 6 aircraft (according to other sources, 11 Bf 109E-3 burned down on the ground, another 13 other cars were damaged or were in malfunction). One pilot, Mr. Lopez, defected. He not only surrendered, but also expressed a desire to fight in the ranks of the Red Army

    The second wave pilots made 1312 sorties, took part in 117 air battles and gained about 15 victories (including possible and unconfirmed). As usual, there are other data: 1182 flights, 13 credible victories and at least 5 unconfirmed or possible. Such a small number of victories is due primarily to the defensive tactics of fighters. The Spaniards lost 6 aircraft and 2 pilots,

The Spanish planes will not do the weather in Estonia, but in case of conflict, they will get the country in ruins. They think that we will not reach them - then it will be too late to agree on a truce, maybe they think we will forget about Spain. How many wolves do not feed, he will not become another.

    The fact that the military airfields are operated by NATO in the Baltic states makes me more happy than sad, because they are not ruined like the others I worked on. There will be less cost for restoration when we return there to our airfields.
