American Boeing P-8A conducted reconnaissance near the Kerch Strait

35
Anti-submarine aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon of the US Navy (Patrol Squadron VP-10 Red Lancers) on Tuesday conducted a reconnaissance flight in the area of ​​the Kerch Strait, reported the monitoring resource PlaneRadar in Twitter.




It is reported that the Boeing P-8A with the on-board number 168764 is part of the US Navy's 10 patrol squadron. The plane approached the coastline of the Crimean peninsula at a distance of 25-35 km.

According to the information, on the same day before the arrival of the Boeing, a reconnaissance in the region was conducted by a strategic RQ-4A Global Hawk UAV, the US Air Force, which is based on Sigonella air base, located in Italy. Performing the mission, the drone began by circling the contact line in the Donbass, then went into the airspace over the Black Sea.

Recently, the activity of US and NATO aircraft conducting reconnaissance near the Russian borders has noticeably increased. In particular, their flights were recorded both in the Black Sea region (Crimea and the Krasnodar Territory) and at the western borders of Russia.

Moscow has repeatedly called on Washington to refuse such flights, but the US administration has consistently responded with a refusal.

The Boeing P-8 Poseidon multipurpose marine aircraft is designed to detect and destroy enemy submarines in patrol areas. It is also used for reconnaissance, participation in anti-ship and rescue operations. It can operate both in coastal areas and in the World Ocean. At the core of its design is the Boeing 737-800. Crew - 9 man, including 7 operators. Combat radius - 3,7 thousand km (distillation range - 8,3 thousand km).

Total produced (as of July 2018 of the year) 96 units. Designed to replace the Lockheed P-3 Orion.

      Yes, something somehow ... "modestly" return recourse
      If the day before yesterday "Orion" was "shocked" as it should, then today what? ... After all, "Poseidon" practically "struck" with a plane along .... ".... The plane was approaching the coastline of the Crimean peninsula at a distance of 25-35 km.")
      What is it? "They overslept the air defense-shniki" .. so in my life I will not believe ... then the team from the top .... again "concerned" with the fact that upset the amers the day before yesterday and took their comments into consideration ..... act on the principle of tolerance is this our everything? wassat

      Why come back here, fly into the open sky, the Russian Federation did not forbid flying at its borders.
      NATO does it for Europe, but NATO is the Americans, so ours are most often watched at the borders of the Russian Federation, and that’s why the news on this topic doesn’t stall ..... winked
      For 2017, 34 states are parties to the Treaty. The Russian Federation ratified the Open Skies Treaty on May 26, 2001.

          Not really, they fly where they see fit, because they choose areas for themselves that they consider dangerous or suspicious, Crimea is by the way the most armed peninsula on earth .... repeat

            Normal intelligence activity. Everyone is looking after everyone, listening to keep abreast of everything. Ours are also conducting reconnaissance of all potential "partners". All their planes, radio points, bases are under vigilant surveillance and wiretapping. And China, by the way, too.

            Under the Open Skies treaty, they fly in the airspace of the inspected state, but only where they are allowed. And reconnaissance flies where it needs to, but not over the territory of the country.

          By the way, why didn’t they intercept, it was possible to put a P-8A reconnaissance somewhere, who will understand how this reconnaissance turned out to be in the Russian Federation, to force a look at tea, so to speak ....

And if he doesn’t sit down, do you want to bring him down in international airspace and declare war on the states? Moreover, such flights occur almost daily. And if our planes also begin to land-shoot down?

              Yes, no, you do not need to shoot down, but you can forcibly ask to land. But I understood that no one intercepted him and did not even react to his presence near the border, but expressed another concern. And "Poseidon" flew close to the border, taking into account 3.7 km of search, the Americans looked a lot. They could at least create some kind of interference, and not just unsubscribe in a tweet, unless of course there was a threat. And if the P-8A flew without signals, in general it was necessary to blame, who knows what is flying there, there are large cities nearby, it is dangerous. Well, there is nothing to argue about, and indeed nothing could have happened, so the media duck is another ... hi

                Well, why do you think that you have laid out all the details here? And look where the legs grow from. On Twitter, data from PlaneRadar is posted, which is available to any more or less literate blogger, and here you rolled a whole cart on the Russian Defense Ministry.
                And if the P-8A flew without signals, it was generally necessary to bring down, who knows what flies there, nearby big cities, it is dangerous.

With what hangover are you going to "blame" everyone who you did not like in the international airspace? To get started, you will get acquainted with the rules of aircraft flights.

    Recently, the activity of US and NATO aircraft conducting reconnaissance near Russian borders has increased markedly.
    In 1941, before the start of the war, the same was observed from the German side. The analogy is certainly not very good, but there is no getting away from reality. Intelligence intensity just does not increase.

    Poseidons with electronic warfare need to be ironed out, so, start drying with khibins to intercept or irradiate them every time they fly with something bad, such as fast neutrons, gamma radiation or, at worst, use a laser to dazzle unmanned pilots with air defense, is it not possible by chance? ?? where is Peresvet ?? and then completely insolent.

        You can laugh but things like GAZers exist. I mean gamma lasers, emitters of coherent gamma radiation. And they don’t need a collider at all, they also work on single crystals. (I remembered Terra’s installation, though the laser there was not gamma, it was high, then I remember the flying Shuttle was felt just by the guidance system of this laser, not even the main setup, so the Shuttle’s crew got sick)) I meant shooting down only drones, well, as if by accident, during training firing ...
