      In the film "The Dawns Here Are Quiet" an original method was proposed for camouflaging military facilities ... I suggest it was taken into service ...

      All these “scouts” have so seriously registered at our borders that it’s already boring to cover every single case. It is more rational to give such information at the end of the week.

    This has become so commonplace that it is not surprising, and therefore a sharp reaction. The truth is noticeably intensified by the British.

    There is a routine preparation for war.

    The radar is created on the basis of the ASARS-2 radar station of the U-2 reconnaissance aircraft, which provides high-resolution mapping of the terrain, full selection of moving targets and single-frame shooting of stationary ground objects. It will use a 4,8 m antenna (ASARS-2) with an electronic control system.

    In connection with the activity of NATO at our borders, we, for sure, are rapidly strengthening the Kaliningrad region. Here they are for days and barrage, sniff out. For this, air intelligence of any state was created.

    In principle, after the flight of such an aggregate for a certain time, a massive disarming strike can be applied.
