    According to the publication, when the media first appeared that the American plane was spotted 30 miles off the coast of the Republic of Crimea, Putin during a March press conference answered the question about the American plane that “the best thing he could do was sink this plane right 30 miles offshore. ” “It would be much easier for me to enter the fight with the United States, but then we will not agree,” the Russian president also noted.

      Similar approaches can be classified as aggression. No one will do such things.
      Their radar is working - our technical reconnaissance is working, their technical reconnaissance is working - our radars, in addition to operating in survey mode, are turned off.

    So, let’s start - the crew’s actions are unprofessional, threatening their humanity, arrogant and aggressive, the equipment on board harmed the environment and the population, the plane fluttered its wings very dangerously, and buzzed menacingly over the passing ships, the pilot’s qualifications are low, it’s possible that there are on board weapons of mass destruction -that such notes must be constantly sent to NATO, and, for each flight of a military aircraft near our border, it is urgent to collect the UN Security Council! !! Troll, so to the maximum! !!!

      The main task of Poseidon, as always for PPLS, is the search for submarines. But its capabilities became wider, and he began to relate to multi-purpose marine aircraft. The main of his equipment is the AN / APS-137D (V) 5 airborne radar and the AN / APY-10 RTR search engine. The radar makes it possible to perform terrain mapping, recognize stationary surface targets, detect submarines by their periscopes and snorkels, and identify high-speed small-sized vessels in the coastal zone. With the help of a search system, the search, detection and analysis of signals of active active radars is conducted.
      Detection ranges depend on the characteristics of the targets.

    I believe that our command in this situation has acted as never before. It is clear that these are pure provocative flights. I suppose that our air defense is currently ready and Rust is not supposed. Well done!
