        Hello Pasha. hi Everything would be fine, but the Cutter has not yet entered the VKS. And the second point, the platform for the Cutter is IL-22, which is based on IL-18, which in turn was created already in 1968. Do you understand the size of that ass, which takes place in the subject of electronic warfare aircraft with us?

    It is interesting that at that moment ours were tested or conducted there. Such "sides" on "just like that" do not fly.

        I remember back in the 70s we received a command at the airport to turn off all radio-emitting equipment during the flight of a US satellite over us.

    After the statement of their minister, the Britons intensified, probably to show that there is still gunpowder in the powder flasks. Usually shtatovskie fly.

    What are these rotten messages for? Russian planes, satellites and sea vessels perform similar actions according to the agreement between Russia and NATO.
