The US Navy held reconnaissance near the Crimea


Poseidon took off from the Sicilian Sigonella airbase and for a long time was located above the international waters of the Black Sea southwest of Sevastopol. It is also reported that another flight near the Crimean coast of the reconnaissance aircraft of the US Navy made 1 January.

Meanwhile, it became aware of the flight of the American strategic drone RQ-4A Global Hawk along the line of demarcation in the Donbass. This UAV also flew out of Sigonella airbase.

Having flown over the Donbas at an altitude of about 16 kilometers, he found himself in 100 kilometers from the Crimea. In addition, the UAV flew in 40-50 kilometers from the border areas of Belgorod, Voronezh and Rostov regions of Russia. In this case, the RQ-4A Global Hawk can conduct exploration into the depths of the territory to 300 kilometers.

        The first NATO military ship in 2018 entered the Black Sea through the Bosphorus Strait. The pioneer of the Black Sea navigation of the North Atlantic alliance was the USS Carney (USS Carney DDG64) destroyer.

            The airmen of the 70s also remember the Kaden air base in Japan and the northerners of their enemies. Every day there were flights of scouts. Particularly annoyed were the flights of SR-71 aircraft.

    There are severely lacking pilots in the US Air Force, so they are putting WWII veterans at the helm. The man flew along a familiar route - Sicily - Berlin - Poltava and fell asleep at the wheel. Here the plane dangled on autopilot as a substance in the hole. Nothing special, but he did not land on Red Square!

Why it is impossible to declare the types of NATO aircraft and the restricted area for these aircraft, for which they will be shot down. If you warn or voice the conditions of behavior near our borders, what kind of aggression it is, these are good intentions aimed at peaceful coexistence with NATO.

Naturally nothing !!!! I can only say that Russian countermeasures against impudent tricks would be tough and comprehensive. I don’t know how our air defense would be shot down by a reconnaissance drone, but I would send our drone towards it with a powerful jammer or kamikaze and the Americans’ claim, referred to the warning and protection of our security. I didn’t want to polemicize with you, but I could not resist. Let's finish - not interesting.

    Carefully but neatly. And better, of course, from his "flyer" (maybe an UAV). A well-balanced and synchronously tuned orientation unit will allow you to well "probe" uninvited guests.

      Gently circled the territory of the Ordilo.
      getting dressed in the morning from the American air base Sigonella, on the island of Sicily, Global Hauk flew over all of eastern Europe and entered the airspace of Ukraine on the Romanian border.
      Having passed from Lugansk to Mariupol at an altitude of about 17 kilometers, turned right towards Nikolaev, after which he inspected military bases and airfields in the Crimea in the region of Sevastopol. Then he reached Novorossiysk, turned back and landed at his native air base late in the evening. The mission lasted more than 16 hours.
      The base patrol "Poseidon" also started from Sigonella, but limited to flying to Sevastopol. The flight took place at an altitude of 8 thousand meters, after which he also returned to Sicily.

        And I do not mind.

        300 minus 40-50 km.

        Roughly speaking. It is 260-250 km. at our place.

      You didn’t mess anything up? As far as I remember, Powers was shot down over the territory of the USSR, and not over a stranger 40-50 km on the other side of the border.

          Strange jokes. I, too, will joke with words from a Russian song: "You wouldn’t go to soldiers, Vanek." Also our aviation saying: - "Born to crawl, do not get confused on the runway." This is to say that if you are not competent in any matter, then before inserting your comments, study at least Wikipedia, so as not to insert excuses like "Yes, I’ve joked"

            Fortunately, neither VanEk. Already good. There is the letter "E" and there is "E" - these are, by definition, different things. Like "And" and "Y".

            Wikipedia ??? I am 34 years old and two educations. To say where and on what I turned Wikipedia. You need - you study.

            And this one, how is it? Damn, the alphabet! Right Here is his teach. And I am already tired of unraveling these puzzles.

            Especially don't panic man. Yes, it would))) for the antipyretic did not have to ...

            And the extreme. If you do not understand sarcasm - then this is not for me.

              And where did you see the panic? When there are not enough arguments, searches for errors and labeling begin. Apparently, the "two formations" are primary and secondary.

                Che !? Well, what are you in kind? Tie it up!

                With the initial one, generally three will work out. On the street count.

                Styopa is good. Take it easy.

    Meanwhile, it became known about the flight of the American strategic drone RQ-4A Global Hawk along the demarcation line in the Donbass.

    Everyone is peeping, sticking their nose into all the cracks - it is time to nip their curious organs, but without hooliganism. All the same fly over "their" territory - hohlopopyh do not even ask permission (the owner does not ask the serf for it!). It is necessary that the jamming director fly opposite - then the Yankees will peel off with their curiosity!

    Yes, it’s a pity of course that our air defense was not intercepted with a “hibin.” Maybe they began to fly less.

    It seems that the Americans put in good luli to our kings for the previous intercepts of their reconnaissance aircraft, and our Supreme Commander-in-Chief forbade our aces to tickle the nerves of Amers. Otherwise, how can we explain that this amer flew in direct line of sight of Sevastopol and Novorossiysk, and there were no interceptions and escort by our "very best".
    This is to be expected.

    An American reconnaissance aircraft off our Black Sea coast, a warship of the US Navy in Odessa ... Americans are clearly preparing to influence the outcome of the presidential election in the southern regions of our country and in the North Caucasus.

    Information for consideration:
    - The Russian Defense Ministry almost directly accused Ukraine of participating in a terrorist attack by drones.
    - GDP: “As for the prospects for a settlement in the Donbass, this takes on the character of a frozen conflict. No one is interested in this, including Russia" ... "we would be satisfied with the implementation of the Minsk agreements" (but everyone understands that Poroshenko has it will not work).
    -Significant build-up with the combat coordination of units and formations on the border with Ukraine.
    - Deployment of additional S-400 divisions.
    - U.S. intelligence (aircraft and frigate).
    - March 2018 Elections
    Conclusion: we are waiting for an occasion from Ukraine for the final completion of the conflict in the Donbass by force, - by the forces of the 1st and 2nd buildings of the LDPR until March-April 2018.
