An unmanned strategic reconnaissance aircraft of the US Air Force RQ-4A Global Hawk flew over the Black Sea along the Russian coastline, reports RIA News message from the resource Mil Radar tracking the movement of the military aviation.




The map, published on Twitter, shows that the UAV flew over the conflict zone in the Donbas, then turned around Kherson and was recorded off the coast of the Crimean peninsula. Then he headed towards Anapa.

American UAV Global Hawk conducted reconnaissance at the southern borders of Russia


It is worth noting that the RQ-4A Global Hawk can fly for 30 hours at an altitude of 15-18 kilometers and at the same time collect reconnaissance data to depths of 300 kilometers.

Recall, on Sunday, the US Navy anti-submarine patrol aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon conducted operational reconnaissance in the sky over the Black Sea. The plane took off from the Sigonella military base in Sicily.

        You mean a small VKS base to cover a small strategic missile forces base on Liberty Island? Well, a sound and timely decision.

    The situation resembles 1941, one to one. Then Hitler also brought his war machine closer to the borders of the USSR, and reconnaissance flights along our borders and even deep into our territory were carried out regularly. In general, I still do not understand how ours are going to agree with NATO and the United States. We were surrounded on all sides, there is no international law as such. The UN is doing anything, but not the cause of peace.

      The current situation should not remind you of anything, because, unlike the USSR, Russia is capable of delivering a preventive strike anywhere in the world. Moreover, such power that the entire German ammunition in TNT equivalent, which was released and dumped on the Union on June 22, 1941, seems to be a defective Chinese firecracker. Another feature: Russia does not have the Lavrov pacts, with whom it doesn’t matter about mutual non-aggression. And the last trifle, the war (if it happens) is unlikely to last long and spread to Russian territory as deeply as in 1941.
      Most of all, the phlegmatism of our government and its rainbow illusions regarding the European countries that deployed military bases with representatives of the US military on their territory “kill me”. I have already expressed my opinion in such a situation, I do not think that it is unnatural.
      The Russian Foreign Ministry must prepare documents (Non-Aggression Pact) for all countries bordering Russia. Obligations and guarantees must be spelled out in “arshin” letters. And in small print - a note that if one of the parties violates the obligation or uses a third force to create a threat, it will suffer the harsh punishment of the Russian Air Force, firepower and contempt for all air defense and missile defense systems of the Russian defense industry. Attach to the contract an accurate plan with the coordinates of the possible strikes with a description of the total power, the results of the consequences using computer graphics. In case of refusal to sign such documents, Russia has every right to distribute video materials among the population of the country who refused to live in peace and harmony ... yes hi

    The route is noteworthy. This is precisely the part of the non-reserve that, with the collapse of this territorial yellow-blunder misunderstanding, will fall off towards Russia. Maybe they’re planning to dirty tricks, so that the NATO contingent could introduce the grounds on a pig’s request — Westerners don’t give a damn about international law.

    Yesterday, before the shift, I read the comments of our "friends" from Israel regarding the shelling of the Syrians by them. As always, they are the "top" others g --- about. Do you think I’m writing off topic? Imagine a Syrian b / n flying along the border of Syria and Israel. You just don’t need to talk about an “honest” capture of Gollan. And you don’t need to talk about hitting the Hezbollah. I have fresh info from guys from the VKS who returned from Syria. They “really” like the Air Force Israel. Maybe enough on OUR website to be "God's chosen"? And go to a "constructive" dialogue (I understand, this word is hunchbacked -----).

    A friendly visit (flight) of our strategists to Cuba suggests itself. Something Americans have completely lost their nose in a foreign region, even though there are NATO member countries. For some reason, the Americans are flying. And in the Donbass scattered too freely collecting data for the APU.

    I don’t know exactly the characteristics of the latest EW developments. If you can’t get it from the ground, maybe from an airplane, unless of course there are such modifications. In short, they need to be shot down quietly, I don’t know all the possibilities - so I ask, maybe someone knows.

      In my opinion, without special need to illuminate electronic warfare is impractical. Who knows what telemetry is on it. The data on the attack will be copied and dumped on someone else’s territory, where they will be striped and received along with the wreckage.

    So we are not talking about the military component, but about the military-political component, which you outlined in the second paragraph of your comment. It’s clear that one “yard” is enough for Great Britain or the Czech Republic with Slovakia, and for Germany it’s 5-8 to remember Potsdam and the hall where Keitel signed unconditional surrender.
