    They will work out a collision with our VKS. If the participation of 20 aircraft, helicopters and UAVs is the largest exercise in the history of Ukraine in the history of Ukraine, then how many planes have they used in the exercises before?

        By the way, in the days of the USSR in Ukraine there were very strong aircraft models both in free and cordial models. Many winners and champions of the USSR, Europe and the World. Only memories remained.

    Have you seen these "mushroom pickers"? !!!
    About 300 thousand military personnel, 36 thousand tanks, armored personnel carriers and other vehicles, more than 1 thousand helicopters, planes and drones, the Pacific and Northern fleets are involved in the exercises, the Airborne Forces are fully involved

    It seems that realistically in schizophrenics in the fall, activity escalates. Belgium, Melkobreganiya, Holland, the USA, the Holopia - they all carry such a blizzard, where did they get LSD from?

      Exercise Vostok, a large-scale event and Clear Sky-2018, were not even close in terms of the forces involved. There is even nothing to compare. But ...!
      The upcoming Ukrainian exercises are not as harmless and midget as it seems at first glance (if we estimate the number of aircraft and ground teams). The fact is that the US Air Force will train in neighboring Ukraine. And the number is not important here, because. if during the exercise they establish the most effective protocols and algorithms for interaction, then "... where the F-sixteen section landed / two planes /, there the group will sit down and base it / and this is already, you know, up to 30 fighters /. Fortunately, since the times of the USSR, Ukraine has got a good airfield network. If something is ruined or outdated, the Pentagon has allocated a very large sum to improve the airfield network in Eastern Europe for NATO countries. Ukraine is not a member of NATO, but if the American engineering battalion of the MP is building base on the Black Sea coast, then, in my opinion, NATO members also want to keep Ukrainian airfields ready. And the movement in this direction began immediately after the Maidan / http: // The Ukrainians themselves wanted to or NATO strategists recommended, remaining in the shadows themselves. In a word, the exercise is not so simple, if we consider it in the complex of all those activities that NATO has been carrying out on Ukrainian soil since the collapse of the USSR.

      "Where did you get the LSD from?"

      So the Americans provided a direct supply from Afgan ... It is written that the C-130 are taking part in the "exercises".

    Our exercises were the largest since the collapse: 300000 soldiers and tens of thousands of various equipment and ships and aircraft ...
    And shouting about overstepping 20 aircraft is, in my opinion, stupid.
    Although, for a banana republic, maybe this is the height of the break.

      Abnormal operation of the brake igniter. Obviously, the pin with the contact load hung loose, and during the ejection he did not move away from the platform. Most likely due to the sloppiness of the loading team.

    Probably for this reason, they dragged their BUKs to the line of demarcation with the LPNR, which the OSCE representatives suddenly discovered the other day. Probably they wanted to overwhelm some kind of "guest" at the exercises (they are angry at the Hungarians) and blame it on the fact that it was the Russians who knocked him down with a BUK from an uncontrolled territory.

    Valtsman did not dare to launch an attack on the Donbass .. Washington offered him a cunning plan!
    Like "ucheniya" .. Will provoke Russia and the DPR !?
    I feel here again, Israel tried. They are afraid of placing the S-300 in Syria, terribly.
    Well, what about the Russian world, we will accept the challenge ..?

    We must endure, otherwise all of the khan is for all of us .. soldier

        When you have a war, at least it is clear who they are shooting at. Doctrines are scary. Although in both cases civilians suffer ..

    Thank God that civil aviation is already flying around the land. The only country in the world that shot down two civilians and not a single military side at once. Moreover, one is just the same in the exercises. The reaction was indicative even then - not well, but what? Well, shot down and shot down, with whom it does not happen. Like Israel, there was nothing.
