A pair of Russian Su-24 bombers watched the Spanish frigate “Admiral Juan de Bourbon” in the Black Sea; planes flew around the ship at a low altitude, reports RIA News Post ABC newspaper.



According to a Spanish newspaper referring to a military source, the “incident” (meaning the appearance of Russian aircraft) occurred after the international exercise “Sea Shield-2017”, when the frigate was in international waters.

“Close observation by Russian aircraft is a normal practice of operations in this sea zone”, - noted the source publication.

The agency specifies that the “Admiral Juan de Bourbon frigate is part of the second permanent naval group of NATO under the command of Germany.” The crew of the ship - 200 people.

Earlier, Pentagon spokesperson Michel Baldans expressed concern about the passage of Russian aircraft with transponders turned off next to the destroyer Porter.

The Russian Defense Ministry, in turn, said that there were no such incidents on February 10. The ministry also noted that all flights of the Russian aviation "Are made in accordance with international rules and safety requirements."

Recall that in the exercise "Sea Shield-2017" 16 ships and 10 aircraft from NATO 7 countries, as well as about 2,8 thousand soldiers, were involved.

        Well, Russian ships off the coast of Spain were passing, so to speak, swimming, but what do the Spaniards do in the closed Black Sea? It is clear that it was not of their own free will, but only by order of the NATO command, but still. Let them not complain, since they have sailed to the shores of Russia, the owner must definitely see who is spinning at the gate.

      Well, about the same as we are in PACE - we paid, but they kicked us out ...
      In Spain, grandmas and decisions to take part in joint exercises apparently counted.
      Nothing terrible happened.

And look at the map where the Spanish port of Ceuta is located (I will tell you - the Spanish enclave in Morocco) and do not be too lazy to search the wide spaces in the vast spaces otherwise the ships of the Northern Fleet can go into the Mediterranean Sea.

            well come in and what? what hysteria? What is our scout doing off the coast of the United States? why don’t we hysteria about this, where is Shoigu looking? recall the scout urgently!

            We have already dealt with this matter. According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, "the large reconnaissance ship SSV-80" Baltic "went to sea to patrol the port of Zarubino but got lost in the fog and ended up in the Gavaev area. So it's okay.

              Almost a pun: the Americans in the Baltic countries took pictures against the background of the ancient Russian fortress of Ivangorod, and the Russians in the Baltic states "took pictures" against the backdrop of 50 US military ships and more than 200 aircraft.

    Spanish newspaper: frigate "Admiral Juan de Bourbon" in the Black Sea was watched by a pair of Su-24

    After the “Kuzyu” refused to refuel, there really were more amigo people watching you ... You just didn’t notice ...

    it would not be a bad thing to make the RCC returned to the airport, so as not to drive the Su24 pilot, fly past the PCR ship at a speed of 3000 km / h and return to the airfield or land by parachute laughing

      She may “forget” that she needs to return. And so the pilots "warmed up", looked at the "target" with the "naked eye", so to speak - in real conditions. Everything is better than at the target range. True, now the “Admiral Juan de Bourbon” knows that it can be renamed the “Hana de Bourbon” wink

    Watch the bombers? This is a heavy non-maneuverable aircraft. This one is like an elephant lurking in the bushes.

    Transponders are not provided for in the design of Russian aircraft at all, as far as I know. So it’s strange to talk about turning them on or off.

      Transponders? What is it about? If we are not talking about civil aviation routes. Transponders are needed for international GA routes so as not to annoy GA pilots.

          If they are not equipped, then this is not necessary for them. The transponder is needed for the GA, so that the TCAS system of civilian airliners works and shows pilots dangerous situations in the air.

    Something all NATO members will severely hurt, as soon as our VKS beside themselves, they all need to give some kind of sedative instead of beer and wine, and in the same quantities that they consume in a bar on the beach. Well, our planes looked at them, showed themselves - they waved their wings and left, what to cry at once ?! lol

    “Close observation by Russian airplanes is a normal practice in this marine zone,” the source said.
    It’s bad that these guys are on their boat in the Black Sea, but it’s good that they are at least adequate ...
    And this is strange, the Americans announced about FOUR of our aircraft in that area ... Spaniards, that they didn’t notice everyone?

    In vain you are so about the SU-24. The aircraft is quite maneuverable (if without a full bomb load), with variable wing geometry, and also structurally adapted to flights at extremely low altitudes.

    For the region of the Mediterranean and Black Seas in the structure of NATO, there is a standing naval group number two (group number one conducts operations in the East Atlantic). The group includes nine ships from seven countries of the alliance. The flagship is the German frigate "Saxony", it also includes Canadian and Romanian frigates, a Turkish corvette, two patrol ships from Albania and the UK, as well as three Greek ones: a small missile ship, a gunboat and a mine ship.
    Standing group number two is located in Naples and in early February took part in the joint exercises of Ukraine and NATO countries “Sea Shield 2017” in the Black Sea. According to Interfax-Ukraine, 16 ships, one submarine and ten aircraft took part in the exercises. The US Navy was represented by the destroyer Porter, which is part of the 6th US Navy, having a permanent parking position in Spain.

    A pair of Russian Su-24 bombers watched the Spanish frigate Admiral Juan de Bourbon

    It’s a little expensive to drive the 24th every time - you just need to hang a small drone for observation and presence.
    And on the fuselage write "But Pasaran."
