    What, this is a stupid question, since it’s already clear what they are looking for. Obviously not a place for fishing and schools of fish. It’s better to ask, why so often? Why did the NATO command suddenly need such frequent reconnaissance flights? Usually this is one of the most striking signs of preparation and the start of an operation in a foreign territory.

        I beg of you. The capabilities of these aircraft are known, but it means and it is clear what and where they can see ... Our reconnaissance aircraft and ships are doing the same, but not so brazenly and often.

          I don’t argue, I probably didn’t quite express my idea ... they are interested in the reasons for intensifying reconnaissance flights. Essentially echoes with your ...

      The complexes are all mobile, they change their place of deployment all the time, so you have to fly often, completely exhausted wassat

        But for this, it is enough to make such flights once a week or a month, but if there are three sides in two days, it turns out that there were two sides in one day. They went not to the general collection of information, but to the operational collection, and such information is needed already in specific conditions, that is, before striking, in order to correct the plans.

          Well, we won’t be so, the Strategic Missile Forces are on duty at our place. Before a strike, such aircraft should not land at all.

            Two sides per day, this is almost the case, given their autonomy

            Everything would be so if it were not for their idea of ​​a global instant strike, with which they rush about, as with a decommissioned sack. By the way, their withdrawal from the Treaty on medium and short-range missiles fits into this concept

    It is clear that. It is not in vain that the Baltic countries are stuffed with troops and equipment like a can of sprats. Yes, and Poland with NATO capabilities nearby.

    The Kaliningrad region is our most militarily vulnerable region, although there is a fairly powerful group of our troops there, and what are the moods of the local population ...

    There will be no direct aggression, the answer can roll off half of Europe in a couple of weeks without nuclear weapons.

    "VKS planes flew eight times to intercept foreign aircraft, the official press agency of the Russian Ministry of Defense reports."
    Our MO uses these aircraft as targets for training the airborne forces and air defense. And so that they fly, they put something incomprehensible in the center of the Kaliningrad region. smile
    At one time, Vasily Tatishchev broke glass on the CER in one of the logging windows. They didn’t have time to insert the glass; they were sent on alarm to “provide” the NATO exercises, closing the porthole with an aluminum sheet. The NATO aviation did not just land on deck, trying to unravel the new reconnaissance weapons of the Russians. laughing

    And what in Russia is there for “feeling” these pepelats, well, what about “scanning signatures” and / or “lighting” them so that they would not see a damn thing?
    Well got it already. Can they "send" a couple of fighter jets and let them "highlight" them with their guidance radars? repeat Maybe they’ll “get offended” that they will suffocate and fall down because everyone will not be able to work early.))
