Military Review

Impact UAVs US will be placed in Poland

19



Warsaw and Washington are negotiating the deployment of a base of US unmanned aerial vehicles on the territory of the 12 base UAV Polish Air Force in Mirosławiec. This information was confirmed by the press secretary of the General Command of the Polish Army.

Military experts claim that the Pentagon plans to deploy the MQ-9 "Reaper" UAV. Despite the fact that the Ministry of National Defense of Poland does not comment on these data, it is known that the American side has already conducted a reconnaissance in Mirosławiec and in the spring of this year MALE (medium-altitude, long-duration drone) drums may appear here. Meanwhile, the Polish Army has no drones of this class, but by the end of the 2018 of the year, as part of the technical modernization of the Polish Armed Forces, it is planned to sign an agreement to purchase them.

Today the Polish Army has various UAVs. The largest of these are ScanEagle short-range tactical vehicles, which were donated by the US government during the ISAF mission in Afghanistan. In addition, the Polish divisions are armed with Israeli-made Orbiter reconnaissance vehicles and FlyEye unmanned systems developed by the private group of companies Gruba WB, working for the defense sector.

If we consider US units deployed in Poland within the framework of “enhancing the advanced presence,” namely, a combat armored brigade group, then it should be noted that tactical formations deployed in the region have Raven-class mini drones or tactical unmanned systems "Shadow 200".

It should be noted that the MQ-9 “Reaper” multipurpose UAV, which may soon appear in the territory of neighboring Poland, are capable of carrying the GBU-12 Paveway II, GBU-38 JDAM bombs, Hellfire air-to-surface missiles (fits 4 missiles) and deliver strikes ground targets with great efficiency. Also “Reaper” can be used as a scout.

The maximum starting mass of the MQ-9 “Reaper” UAV is 4,7 t, of which the payload is 1,7 t. The device is capable of speeding up to 370 km per hour (according to some sources up to 480 km per hour), flying at an altitude of 18,5 km. The maximum flight time of the MQ-9 UAV Reaper is equal to the 27 hours.

Until now, heavy unmanned systems have been used in Central and Eastern Europe only in a few cases. For example, in 2015, the American MQ-1 “Predator” (they will be replaced by “Reaper”) was used in Lithuania. In 2016, the Israeli Hermes 900 (MALE class) and Hermes 450 (medium-range tactical) systems provided security for the NATO Summit in Warsaw and World Youth Days in Krakow. It is known that quite recently over the Central and Eastern Europe, including over the territory of Ukraine, the Global Hawk RQ-4 UAV performed a reconnaissance flight.

Reaper UAVs are actively used in various combat operations in the Middle East, Afghanistan and Africa.

In fact, at present, in Poland, apart from the national armed forces, a multinational combat battalion group of NATO, weapons and military equipment depots, a combat armored brigade group of the United States, and an army brigade are located aviation The United States, an F-16 fighter squadron and a link of the US Air Force C-130 military transport aircraft, NATO's airborne early warning and control aircraft is on duty in the country's airspace.

This is a powerful strike potential on the eastern flank of NATO directly at the borders of Belarus, which will increase significantly with the arrival of multi-purpose UAVs here. But that's why such a strengthening of the American military presence in Poland is not entirely clear. Poles have no direct threat from their neighbors - Russians in the Kaliningrad region have too few troops to be of any strategic interest, and Belarus reduces its armed forces every year and, if it continues like this until 2020, they will become four times less polish. And then there's the American troops. In this case, the official Minsk should reconsider plans to optimize its own Armed Forces, otherwise it will be too late.

    It is time for Russia to supply Poland with a batch of magnetic stirrers free of charge to evenly mix the seething compost masses in the heads of Polish political elites.

      I do not take the military aspect, I only note through the prism of history - Poland, after the Anglo-Saxons, for us, Russians, Belarusians, even normal, left-bank Ukrainians, enemy N2! And when someone rubs me that ordinary Polish people are normal, this is all politics - this is wishful thinking! A simple Polish farm laborer will not only set up drone drones in his garden, but will drive his wife out of the house, and even the bald dash will shelter if the devil is a Russophobe!

        "The US military drone RQ-4B spent many hours reconnaissance flight over the demarcation line of the warring parties in the Donbass. The drone spent in the air for more than a day, flying from north to south along the so-called gray zone between the Ukrainian military and the LPR and DPR militias. This information appeared on the west It’s known that the drone flew from the US military base in Sicily and entered the airspace of Ukraine from Romania, flying at an altitude of 15,5 thousand meters above the ground at a speed of 600 kilometers per hour. According to military experts, it is likely that the American drone conducted reconnaissance for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in anticipation of a major offensive. It is no coincidence that US officials in almost open text "blessed Kiev" for an offensive operation. "(Channel "Tsargrad" 05:00, 27.01.18/XNUMX/XNUMX)

        hi , Eugene.
        In general, you are right. But I'm not talking about that. Surprising is the similarity of the mentality of pshek and ukrov. Fundamental principles such as "spitefully frosty ears to my grandmother", "I won’t eat it, I’ll have a bite", "I’ll go shoot in Muscovite (and if he’s you), but for what?", Well, etc. One to one that of those of others. So, the Poles were indignant at the price of Russian gas for them and issued a present for the price, as for Germany, crap and protesting wherever possible against SP-2. It’s amazing.

    Therefore, it will grab the most and forward of all. angry

    Eeeh (dreamily) would be to take control of such a UAV and bomb something very important and significant for the scumbags repeat good . THERE is what kind of church or something else, well, whatever - by any force it was impossible to drive the reimbursement of the Poles “under the carpet”. Yes, yes, I understand that EVERYONE hangs on Russia. but the “simple Poles” didn’t understand so much - that Russian hackers couldn’t bomb anything if there weren’t any American UAVs in Poland. tongue

    But the United States will not have a big problem here. Poland already goes to rallies with posters POLISH VILNIUS ... POLISH LVIV ... Although, I’m sure that for the sake of their goals the United States will turn a blind eye to expanding Polish borders just as it has closed its eyes to the seizure of part of Cyprus by Turkey ... But the scandal with the countries that find themselves in the Roles of Greek Cyprus and Greece itself cannot be avoided by the United States ... The main thing is that Russia does not interfere in this conflict, because this conflict will not make either the forest brothers or Bandera friends of Russia ... Russia’s business in this conflict - Observation from the side of how her enemies will kill each other ...

    Kill 2 birds with one stone:
    1st hare: they are shifting the balance of NATO forces in their favor even more in comparison with the CSTO troops deployed in the region.
    2nd hare: the Poles wanted to replace the old Su-22 with a reconnaissance strike. drones, here they will have a training center.

    The United States, unlike the Russian Federation, purposefully surrounds us with its military facilities with numerous military equipment and personnel and the military to control this equipment. This is not an attempt to defend against “aggressive Russia”. This is a springboard for the first strike on Russia and at the same time a means of first defense against a possible military response on our part. All our retaliatory strike (if it follows) will fall on the countries that separate Russia from the main EU states. These countries that are not a pity: Ukraine, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Moldova ... The list is being updated on the geographical map of Eurasia. Therefore, quietly, but we are arming ourselves and transferring military units to the borders, conducting military exercises at a possible future site of an attack on the Russian Federation. And what bothers me is the question: are the USA and the EU sure that Russia will not dare to launch a preventive nuclear strike? The risk, despite the corruption of our politicians and their real estate with their families in Europe, is still high ...

    In fact, at present, in addition to the national armed forces, the multinational NATO battalion group, armaments and military equipment warehouses, the US military armored brigade group, the US Army Aviation Brigade, F-16 fighter squadron, and the C-130 military-transport link of the US Air Force are currently stationed in Poland. , in the airspace of the country is on duty a long-range radar detection and control aircraft of NATO.
    This is already a powerful strike potential on the eastern flank of NATO directly at the borders of Belarus, which will increase significantly with the arrival of multi-purpose UAVs here. But this is why the strengthening of the American military presence in Poland is not entirely clear. The Poles do not have a direct threat from their neighbors - the Russians in the Kaliningrad Region have too few troops to be of any strategic interest, and Belarus reduces its armed forces every year and, if this continues until 2020, it will be four times less than polish. And then there are the American troops. In this case, official Minsk should revise plans to optimize its own Armed Forces, otherwise it will be too late.

    God, this our Belarus booger without Russia Russian Orthodox Christian, without Russian Orthodox Christians, will be crushed like a beetle in three days.
    Of course, it is worth it, namely, to become part of the Russian Orthodox Christian Russia, to the Russian Orthodox Christians. To become the Russian Orthodox Christian, the Russian Orthodox Christians, the Russian people to the Russian Orthodox Christian. As were always: Russia, the Russian Empire, Russia and the USSR. It’s not too late yet, we haven’t been destroyed. And so, we’ll join Russian Orthodox Russia, Russian Orthodox Christians, and the Russians will put their own, our troops in Minsk and their bases. And everyone who is now in Belarus as part of Russia Russian Orthodox Christian attack, it means attack Russian Orthodox Christian Russia, Russian Orthodox Christians, the people of the Russian Orthodox Russia. Here it is.

    Of course, there will be no preemptive nuclear strike. So you can attack anyone and destroy or seize. Preventive strike is aggression and attack. That is, no one attacked you, but you attacked, made the first attack, a preventive strike.
    There will be no preemptive strike. Otherwise, Russia is an aggressor.
    The Russian Orthodox Christian strike will be a Russian nuclear strike, if it can be seen that Russia is losing in a conventional war. Or there will simply be a nuclear strike only after the Russian Orthodox Christian attacked Russia. Only and only then. And nothing else. Because otherwise, a preemptive strike is aggression. I explain, you weren’t attacked, you attacked, made a nuclear strike and write off the preventive strike.Do not write stupidity.
