According to the tracking service aviation CivMilA on Twitter, the US strategic reconnaissance drone RQ-4A Global Hawk conducted reconnaissance off the coast of Crimea


American drone conducted aerial reconnaissance off the coast of Crimea


It is noted that the drone with a tail number 10-2043 rose from the Sicilian Sigonella airbase, and then flew for several hours at an altitude of 16 thousands of meters along the western and southern coast of the peninsula.



In the area of ​​Sevastopol, the RQ-4A Global Hawk approached the coast at a distance of about 30 kilometers, passing almost along the edge of the sea border, and in the Alupka area - at 34 kilometers.

Before heading to the shores of Crimea, the drone flew along the demarcation line in the Donbass, and approached several times the distance from 40 to 60 km to the bordering Ukraine regions of Belgorod, Voronezh and Rostov regions of Russia.

      Vitaliy, hi hi ! Something needs to be done with this! It is necessary to hang our drone near it so that it jammers or distorts the signals of an American air spy! We must discourage them from flying here, especially since they literally registered near our border!

          But this is a really important fact. The Americans did not violate the airspace of LDNR, although they consider it Ukrainian, and the republics are illegal.

            Why raise the MiG-31. He was already intercepted by the forces that exist in the Crimea. Yesterday the weather was great and it was clear how our plane went to intercept him.

      Only for the statements of the Volcker about Crimea, this scum should be withdrawn from the negotiation process for violating the territorial integrity of Russia, and all contacts with the United States are minimized.

            Quite right, they inform selectively, but not because they are greyhound, but by resonance. Yesterday, for example, was a holiday. Detection and intercepts occur constantly, all who are supposed to work like clockwork.

            About the “two MiGs” it was written on the water with a pitchfork, the data are not confirmed by anything, except for the “memoirs” of some “Vasya” who served near the radar. But even if you consider all these fakes not sucked out of your finger, then in the end result Francis was overwhelmed by his face, merging his "employers" glowed on television screens around the world.

        You're not right. Under the USSR, everything was "gentle", they flew along our borders, and we flew along them. And if the border was not violated, no one ever touched anyone. But if someone decided to stick his nose behind the "red line" - they fell and planted. Believe me, who served 22 years in the reconnaissance aviation regiment of the KSF aviation and it was during the Soviet era. While the Yankees are not scampering for this line, so there is no reason to shoot down and land.

              The reason is their increasingly arrogant flights of their UAVs along the borders. It’s not easy to fill up it, to fill up during training shootings, as some here offer this one-time event, moreover, you will have to make excuses for the mattresses. I would suggest building a fairly primitive UAV that will be controlled from an airplane and at the next Global Hawk flight near Crimea, just push these two (our expensive mattress and cheap) UAVs in the air, then announce that this Global Hawk crashed into our super-sophisticated, made from platinum and gold UAVs (presenting linden) and invoice the mattresses as for F-22 and declare that until the mattresses have paid compensation, their UAV flights will be stopped because of their danger to air traffic. Unfortunately, with the oligarchy of the Russian Federation, fantasy works only to rob the common people.

                It’s a tempting offer, it’s a pity that it is difficult to implement because of the high height of the UAV spy, so it’s impossible to get your own UAV kamikaze cheap. Yes, and to get into the maneuvering target without illumination will not work, and the illumination will give the target of the collision.

                  The Global Hawk UAV is not a maneuvering target, for the most part it moves in a straight line, so the easiest guidance method: the "three points", will do.

                    This is a reconnaissance UAV, which means that it constantly monitors the surrounding space (optical, thermal and electromagnetic), plus ground services also monitor the traffic around the UAV. Therefore, any approach to other aircraft or exposure is recorded by ground services and after that it is difficult to make round eyes and talk about their non-involvement in the event of an accident in neutral waters! And he will shy away from another aircraft in the event of a collision danger, so this goal will actually be maneuvering. What will stop him from moving a couple of tens of meters to prevent a collision? The cost of a UAV capable of climbing independently to a 20-kilometer altitude will be far from penny, and taking into account optical guidance, it still does not guarantee a result. Dropping from an airplane is also not an option, the moment of dropping can be recorded by optical systems and subsequently presented as a fact of aggression in neutral waters. You can’t highlight with radars, because that's why he rummages around the borders in order to take off parameters, including the operation of the radar!

    Russia needs its strategic reconnaissance drones, capable of hanging for days near US military bases. Unfortunately, we do not have the right to shoot down their drone in neutral airspace, but we must troll them with our flights. If at 3.14ndos one day they lose their nerves and they decide to shoot down our drone, then this will untie our hands to clear the surrounding area of ​​aviation with a white star on board.

    It’s interesting, but you can’t use electronic warfare so that the RQ-4A Global Hawk lands somewhere in the Black Sea? Well, if the Americans are indignant, blame the drone for the technical failure .... so it’s not comme il faut that such scouts fly to our borders and get intelligence data.

      you have to make the same cars (even better, we don’t have Cuba, although if you take off from Anadyr) and fly along the coast to the USA, so that the Americans themselves come to us and decide to conclude some kind of new limiting agreement.

      shoot is not a level. level to make the car better. His flights do not violate any contracts.

      They only upset the balance in our emotions =]

The Americans and Israelis are probably the best UAVs for today, here we are lagging behind .... but in terms of electronic warfare, our positions are pretty strong :) do we really know if our systems work at this height, I don’t know ....

          Fear further! We need to counteract such flights, and not repeat them ... First, it’s much simpler, but they don’t know how, they want, but they can’t ... Can they tell ... if they don’t have enough intelligence, or maybe they don’t have an order, such us ... a moron system ... And still no one knows who should give such an order ... They probably wait until the president notices, but what else to wait for from people like Gerasimov? Dumb, but loyal ...

          Here the problem is rather not in the technical means of controlling our bases in Syria, but in the fact that either they are not used, for some reason, or they simply are not there. You probably meant this, the situation with the attack on the Khmeimim airbase, there are a lot of questions regarding security .... according to the official report, there was an attack from mortars, according to other unofficial sources, an attack by drones, and there was an attempt later with an attack by drones. As for the electronic warfare system, everything is pretty good on the technical side, and it’s possible to land the RQ-4A Global Hawk, I’m just not an expert in this field, so I was interested in such an opportunity, but the Iranians managed to intercept the RQ-170 Sentinel due to the GPS vulnerability and ScanEagle also later managed to intercept ....

            No, I meant the free uncontrolled movement of militants and their friends in Syria in general ... Such UAVs have inertial systems that determine their position autonomously, and calculate the route autonomously, virtually if you want, but they fly to a stable communication zone really, with small mistakes ....

      Yes they work. this EW is called S - 300.))) In Syria, they have already decomposed one, after the destruction of the Syrian aircraft by amers.
      By a strange coincidence, it is reported that today the RQ-4 Global Hawk crashed in a sparsely populated area of ​​California.

      So somehow, despite the lack of official statements on this matter (Russia does not declare the launch of the missile on purpose, and the Americans are silent about the downed plane), but the puzzle develops to the puzzle ...

    In Soviet times, our aircraft flew along Alaska, and over the Pacific Ocean. From there, the closest thing is to get the enemy. And today, all the "partners." Well, fly, so what?
    Here are just an American ship with 500 marines on board, recently entered the Black Sea, in my opinion, should alert our command. The connection with reconnaissance flights over the coast and the landing is direct.
