American drone spent a long reconnaissance in the Donbass

36
A strategic drone of the US Air Force RQ-4B on Wednesday made its next many hours reconnaissance flight along the demarcation line in Donbass, reports Interfax messages from Western sites tracking military movements aviation.




According to the information, “the American long-range drone with the hull number 10-2043, which departed from Sigonella airbase in Sicily, cruised almost all day from north to south along the demarcation line in Donbass, without crossing it.”

The UAV "flew at an altitude of about 15,5 thousand meters and a speed of 600 km per hour."

It is noted that taking into account the intelligence capabilities of the RQ-4A, the Global Hawk could observe the entire territory of the Donetsk and Lugansk republics, as well as a large part of the territory of the border regions of the Russian Federation.

At the same time, the UAV flew several times "at a distance from 40 to 60 km to the areas of Belgorod, Voronezh and Rostov regions of Russia bordering on the Lugansk region." At that moment he was above the Novopskovsky district of the Lugansk region of Ukraine.

The drone entered the airspace of Ukraine from Romania and continued to fly east over the Kirovohrad and Dnepropetrovsk regions to the Donetsk region.

Help Agency: “The RQ-4A Global Hawk, which carries a high-resolution camera, an infrared sensor and a radar to track moving objects, is designed to conduct strategic aerial reconnaissance to a depth of 300 km on enemy territory. When flying at high altitudes, Global Hawk is able to survey large areas, carry out high-resolution point targets and transmit intelligence to real-time command via satellite communications. "

      And why wouldn’t our people not scam him like Donald Cook? At the same time check the effectiveness.

      almost the whole day, he traveled from north to south along the demarcation line in the Donbass, without crossing it. ”

              Fortunately or unfortunately, hacking and interception leave their traces as hackers and even if they don’t have evidence on their hands, they will know whose hands it is.
              Ours have figured out where from when someone launched the swarm of drones at our bases and then a whole strategic one that flew in from Italy and has a multi-level defense system and signs of hacking and interception .... will most likely be recorded.

                Kraukha does not crack, but simply replaces the signal from the native to your own, that is, it is built into the drone system ... there is no hacking.
                And in the West, there are no such complexes as Kraukha by the capabilities and functionality yet ... in the topic of electronic warfare technologies we are still ahead of the planet that the mattresses also recognize, speaking of a 15-20 year gap in front of us.

    Global Hawk is a great machine! Shot at him from Buk, screaming: "this is how the Malaysian Boeing was knocked out!" But the fact that they track its flight for 40-60 km. from the border of the LPR - already good. So the Republics have modern radars.

        It is clear that with the Belgorod and Voronezh regions our radars were escorted, but at a distance of 40-60 km. from the Lugansk Republic, if in the depths, next to the DPR, no radars of Russia can accompany. They can get a "mark", but not "accompany". I think he did not scan the Republic, but the border of the Outskirts with the Russian Federation.

      We look at what is written in the original source: ".... transmits Interfax messages from Western sites that track the movements of military aircraft."
      Are you sure that ours even tracked him?

      Naturally, you can). The same "Krasukh" in the X-range, and then its radar AN / ZPY-2 will not be so easy to scan the territory of Donbass and the border areas of Russia ..

        I do not think that Kraukha can interfere in the X-band. Still, a product of the late 80s ...

          It may well be that 1RL257 "Krasuha-4" is designed to suppress radar type AN / APY-3 (radar reconnaissance / ground target designation aircraft E-8C "JSTARS") and AN / ZPY-2 MP-RTIP (RQ-4A / B). Radar data works X-band. The problem may lie in the fact that the above-mentioned AFAR radars are capable of forming dips in the beam pattern in the direction of the jammer due to the electron beam control and independent work of anti-personnel mines, controlled by high-performance digital computers, which makes it possible to partially circumvent the interfering space sector.

            I am not an expert in this product. But he was inside the Cheburashka and asked the operator, my friend about the range, this was due to the work of my POST-3M station (Shepherdess). X-band was not available there. But maybe further modifications 1RL257 achieved this? Although the antenna "binding" is not obvious. Fighting with AFAR is almost useless.

              In the early version of 1Л269 “Krasuha-2”, the DM-band was indeed used, which is why the system was announced as the best anti-rldinn E-3A / C, E-2C / D planes ..

    Normal everyday flight Global Hawk. Schedule all the same. That's just not all the information from it is available to the same Ukraine. Though. In an interview with the general, they very scrupulously collect information. Both ground and aerial reconnaissance. This type of UAV is quite expensive. This is one way to benefit and justify the investment.
