Victor Leonov reconnaissance ship spotted off US East Coast

50
The Russian reconnaissance ship "Viktor Leonov" was spotted on Monday off the US East Coast, reports TASS CNN post.




According to the television company, Viktor Leonov is located in international waters, approximately 160 kilometers south-east of Wilmington, North Carolina.

According to journalists, "the ship left Port of Spain a few days ago, the capital of the Caribbean state of Trinidad and Tobago, and then headed north."

It is noted that the course of the Russian ship is unknown. However, earlier, according to sources, Viktor Leonov has already cruised along the US East Coast, where, among other things, the bases of the US Navy are located (in Norfolk, Virginia and Kings Bay, Georgia).

The last time the ship was spotted off the East Coast was in March 2017. As Fox News reported at that time, “Viktor Leonov” took place in international waters approximately 37 km southeast of the Kings Bay base.

The publication reminds that the ship "Viktor Leonov" (project 864) is designed to "intercept radio communications and study the parameters of sonars." It is the third generation of ships developed in the Soviet Union in the 1980s.

      I am not a supporter of the Yankees. For me, they were “a likely adversary” throughout the service. But why, unlike our cheer patriots, minke whales do not yell in the comments: "We need to drown! We need to shoot!"? Mutual intelligence has been going on for many decades. But now some sort of tryndets. As soon as a NATO-plane or ship approaches our borders, even such a brainless fool are at an adequate VO. IMHO

        Apparently because the number of these airplane / steamship departures has steadily increased over the course of a dozen years. And all this against the background of an increase in the speed of information passing. So we get a certain synergy.

      I wonder where the remaining 6 ships of this, 864 project go? Not enough, for all the States one ship? "Uncle, I should add!"

      "Posudina" is watching their wedding. lol
      According to the New York Times, the gay couple’s marriage ceremony was first held in the holy of holies of the American Army — the Military Academy at West Point. It is believed that this is the first gay marriage in US history, which concluded two current officers.
      30-year-old captain Daniel Hall and 26-year-old captain Vincent Francino met at West Point in 2009. Then Hall, the last year cadet, was appointed curator of the newly enrolled in the Franchino Academy.
      Hall and Franchino say that at first it was difficult for them. During the first visits on the street, passersby called them “fagots”. The command was not delighted, which tried to distribute the lovers to the airbases distant from each other.

      Both currently serve as pilots for the McDonnell Douglas AH-64 Apache helicopter based in Texas.

      The wedding ceremony in the presence of 150 guests was held by the reverend of the universalist church. Leaving the chapel, the newlyweds passed through a symbolic “arch” of crossed saber colleagues. The traditional wedding cake was also cut by an officer saber. The newlyweds performed their first dance to the song Edith Piaf La Vie En Rose.

          Pletnev smiled again. Smiling, he suddenly became young.
          - Do you remember how Ivan Ivanovich was sent to the red buoy and what his signalman received?
          - Still to forget! - Rybin was delighted.

      Well, you really do not put them in anything. In the United States there are not only Comanche Indians with sentinel towers, but also a very modern army with air and satellite reconnaissance. Our entire fleet is under close surveillance, right down to the kind of lover the ship commander went to today. laughing
      Do not underestimate the enemy.

    The command of the Atlantic Theater of the United States has already said that the Russian ship can go in neutral waters wherever it wants and as it wants. There will be no obstacles to it. But they will track its movements. This is normal practice for all countries with their own military fleet.

    About times, about manners! In Soviet times, newspapers wrote: "In connection with missile launches, a square ....... of the Pacific Ocean is closed for swimming." And that’s all. "Maryaata", SR-71 as relatives walked and fenced off at our northern borders, our hydrographs plowed the seas and oceans, walked in neutral waters off the coast of the adversary, strategic aircraft and nuclear powered ships were on duty where they were supposed to ... and silence, who needed - they knew. There was no Internet, and there was no one to fuss about anything ... wink

    So it is necessary for Viktor Leonov to make a permanent residence permit near the meriticos, so that ALL telemetry flows from them around the clock !!! Their globals, on our southern borders, are launched regularly by mericatos.
