24
Romania will become the 14-th country in the world, armed with the US Patriot air defense system. According to the portal defensenews.com, the Romanian Ministry of Defense has signed a contract with Raytheon for the supply of missile systems.


Romania will receive seven Patriot missile defense systems


Romania will receive seven Patriot Configuration 3 + complexes equipped with radars, control stations, antennas, launchers, and electric generators. In addition, Patriot MIM-56E Guidance Enhanced Missile-TBM and Patriot Advanced Capability-104 Missile Segment Enhancement 168 missiles are included in the package. The key contractors under the contract are Raytheon and Lockheed Martin. The amount of the transaction will be $ 3 billion

It is planned that the Patriot complexes will become part of the integrated air defense system of Romania, which already includes F-16 fighter jets. Last year, the Romanian Air Force received the first batch of six fighters, as many more combat aircraft will be delivered in the near future. In addition, the American anti-missile defense complex Aegis Ashore is located in the country, which is part of the general NATO air defense system and is capable of intercepting short and medium-range ballistic missiles, reports "Warspot".

    Bastards are arming themselves, well, well ... Romanians are still "helpers."
    Although the question is, who will be the operator of these systems?
    We need to mumble the flag of the country of destination on each Iskander rocket))) Maybe they will think about it?)))) And the add icon -

        And if something else lights up in Europe, then there will be real earnings for the states, as in the 1st and 2nd MV

    These are not partners, these are enemies. They lived somehow without Borjomi ....

      That's how it is, if you updated the air defense system, do you have to break the ties, since you are rags? ..
      And if we would break off relations with us every time, how would we put our air defense systems on our territory?

      Are countries buying C-300 / 400 also subject to economic sanctions from the States?

        An attempt to overthrow Erdogan, blocking Iranian money in American banks - is that a manifestation of love and care? Or maybe shelling and bombing by Israel of the territory of Syria - is it a friendly relationship?
        And you would have all the sanctions.

    In addition, the American missile defense system Aegis Ashore, which is part of the general air defense system, is located on the territory of the country


    That’s the main reason and the splinter, it’s not only air defense, but when changing missiles it becomes shock.

            Yes, I honestly do not care. But the launcher is identical to those placed on the destroyers.

              If it were so, then MIM-104 would be used in the fleet.

    Oh, another target country for our Iskanderos.
    In general, we are being so closely embraced from the western direction.
    Maybe that's why the gestures of our military began in the Chukotka region?

    So let's break off relations with everyone so as not to bother with whom to tear, and with whom not to tear. I bought something not from us - a break in relations. Here India bought an Israeli air defense system - to break off relations. Trading and diplomatic. Vietnam got American watchdogs to break off relations immediately. And to impose sanctions. Syria supplies Iranian missiles (not ours) - to sever relations with Syria. Who else is next in line? Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Armenia dared to buy Chinese and Israeli MLRS and air defense systems - immediately break off relations. And Kazakhstan is still a rotten broom from the SCO to drive out. How dare he (they) not buy from us ....
    Maybe let's create an iron curtain again, we’ll turn off total censorship for everything, including literature, to the hell’s Internet. Bring your suggestions to the logical end ....

    Precisely, Google to the rescue, only not Jack O'Neill, and you. For nothing will get into the M901 launcher, except for SAM. If you start to talk about air defense systems, then take the trouble to distinguish between launchers Mk-41 from the complex "Aegis" from launchers "Patriot". and then make a remark to the person who, unlike you, at least understands this issue
    And the word "Tomahawk" is written through О - Tоmahavk, not Tаmahavk

    The phrase most likely does not tell you anything. Configuration 3+. Or rockets MIM-104E GEM-T. Therefore, you are so famously claiming that we fly below 50 meters - they will not see ....

    What are they embracing? By replacing the old Soviet air defense systems of the 50s of the beginning of the 60s with the new American ones? And in the ratio of 1: 1? Or the fact that this system can intercept ballistic missiles as much as 50 km from the launch

    Damn, the reasoning is not adults, but kindergarten kids in the sandbox: I won’t play with you because you didn’t let me play with your shoulder blade. . So it is here. The country bought to replace the old Soviet missile systems with new American ones - to immediately break off trade and diplomatic relations with it. Or "Iskanders" to hit them. Respected! And you, for a change, count how many Iskanders will be needed to cover at least the Patriots battery. And will we not fly out into the pipe if we spend on each launcher according to the iskander, which may cost more than the whole battery?
