Hodges noted the effectiveness of Russian EW funds

32
The Russian army effectively uses means of electronic warfare, actively uses drones and rocket weapons, reports RIA News Statement by US Commander of Ground Forces Ben Hodges in Europe.




They (RF) have shown that they still have really effective means of electronic warfare. They demonstrated a lot of action with the participation of drones,
Hodges said in an interview with Defense News, commenting on the teachings of "West-2017."

They confirmed that we assumed that their conduct of hostilities was still based on long-range missiles and rocket artillery,
he noted.

According to the general, also during the exercise, Russia "tested a new system of command and control and troop control, which the United States intends to analyze in order to understand how effective it is."

Recall, the strategic exercise “Zapad-2017” was held in Belarus and Russia from 14 to 20 September. More than 12 thousand soldiers were involved in the training, about 680 units of equipment were involved.

        straight so out of order

        Well, of course not written off. But in tactical terms, he left the course of the battle. (Theoretical battle) This is awesome.

            Oh well, otherwise they came up with it out of the blue.

            Maybe they exaggerated something, but the computers on the ship were turned off. This is even the Americans themselves have confirmed. So do not.

              Ben Hodges ... The same general who was sent to Pakistan as the "representative of the United States." He long persuaded and persuaded the Pakistanis to release all captured terrorists into Afghanistan, according to the official wording "due to the fact that in 2014 the United States will leave Afghanistan, and the locals will need someone to control. And these released ones will enter to local law enforcement, the US will train them. "

            Drying if something happens when you have the right missiles and you don’t have to get close to it.

          Are you sure? And if there was a Russian crew? Are you sure that ALL systems have failed and they cannot be restored with the help of some mother or forced to work, albeit limitedly? And was there a hardware failure? It seems that the second version was also broadcast on TV - at the same time they took the coastal missile complex to escort them (in fact, the guidance mode) .... But catching a rocket is not the same as catching interference from the enemy ...

            ... everything is exactly the opposite ...
            In their place, it would be filapetovo whether the coastal missile complex is looking at me or not, since to consciously slap a missile into the side of the US destroyer - you need to have a terribly frostbitten head or at least the fact of war. But fear and dump, churning water, it is possible only from what is not clear and unpredictable.

              Here is a rocket - this is not predictable. For the effect of electronic warfare on a foreign ship is the same. Declaration of war in fact. And not at all deadly. The ship does not lose speed. And the galley does not stop working .... But a gift from warheads per ton ..... And who knows these terrible Russians ..... laughing

                Here's a rocket - it's not predictable

                What is unpredictable in a rocket, especially if you already have radar? Especially if you are 50 percent sure that you are able to intercept it. Especially if you know that the rocket will not fly, because otherwise it will be all the same to all. Especially if you, in principle, did nothing terrible, and the commander of the red button on the rocket is not an officer, but a president who has never proved himself inadequate. So what's wrong with a rocket? Attention to the question: will hegemony be scary if it sailed onto a super duper with a modern destroyer, stuffed with not the latest electronics, and a lonely and relatively ancient unarmed plane, having flown up to the model of excellence in military science, will simply take and turn off the weapon? Let us recall the statement of the GDP on this issue in "Crimea, the way to the homeland": "... it was they who went too big ...". And now the second question: what is hooliganism? In flapping wings on the deck of a heavily armed Cook? If it was Blackjack or Backfire, then yes it would be scary, and the Su-24 ... yes empty ..... That would be Americans laughing. But no. And there’s nothing to blame for the Russians: well, Spy died, well, after all, not for good. But what was that all about? The Russians are silent, they only grin cunningly, they say about hooligans. So - there was nothing! It seemed. But feet in Romania are better to carry away. The faster the better.
                The tale is a lie, but a hint in it ... Or is it better this way: there is no smoke without fire. Especially in such matters.

        for cut, most likely
        The report of the Inspector General of the Department of Defense sounds devastating: as much as 6,5 trillion dollars (that is, 6500 billion!) Disappeared from the general fund of the US Army, leaving no documentary trace. No one can (at least officially) say where and what this money went to.

    Are you talking about the destroyer entering the Black Sea? ("Cook" seems to be) .. so no matter how I am there. Not the "hibina" calmed him down .... but the missile complex "bastion" (irradiated) .. so they fled back home .. about this to a hundred and Putin says in the film about Crimea (if you are of course about this case?)
