American attack aircraft was damaged near Tallinn


Ten American A-10 attack aircraft and four UH-64 Black Hawk and CH-47 Chinook National Guard helicopters arrived in Estonia last Friday to take part in joint exercises with the Estonian Defense Forces, which are deployed in Estonia by international battalion from 7 to 18 in August NATO and members of the militant Kiteselit ("Union of Defense"). In particular, they practiced taking off and landing on the Jägala-Käravete highway. A special extended section of the highway was built back in Soviet times as a backup runway and can still be used.

      Well, the fence touched. And they also wanted to build a large wall at the border. And then what? Just speed up - and the fence.

        We did them and do not take these roads NATO aircraft .. It was easy to get off, I remember the Polish plane with drunk and evil Poles, the Russian land of Smolensk also did not accept! The souls of the fallen Soviet soldiers guard their borders and Russia from all dishonesty and are watching us with sadness! soldier

            There were a lot of such people, mostly the most famous in Belarus .. (the exercises there were held several years ago) they are not holding a bad load .. And in the Baltic countries, all the more, they were secret ..! There should be special compositions of the pavement ... Outwardly no different from asphalt, but durable and stable for many years .. We knew how to do it before We have roads that have not been patched even once in 30 years and panel houses that nothing takes (drill, dupel, etc.))))

              C'mon, roads are repaired every year. In Belarus I know the Moscow concrete highway for the Olympics built, multi-lane, yes, it’s a ready alternate aerodrome. I don’t know such roads here. There is asphalt everywhere and a maximum of 2 lanes in one direction.

    The score is one - zero in our favor.

    The A-10 Thunderbolt attack aircraft is armed with the most powerful 30-mm gun GAU-81A, which is installed in the nose of the aircraft, practically on its axis of symmetry. The gun is made according to the Gatling scheme and has seven rotating trunks. The shells of the gun’s shells are made of aluminum, which significantly reduced the weight of the ammunition. The total weight of the cannon launcher along with the ammunition is 1830 kg.

    The GAU-81A cannon has a hydraulic drive, a linkless ammunition supply system and a drum-type magazine. The shells of the guns have plastic driving belts, which significantly increases the resources of the trunks. The pilot can set a different rate of guns: from 2100 to 4200 (later the upper threshold was reduced to 3900) rounds per minute
