US reconnaissance aircraft continues to circle in Crimea


On the eve, many hours of reconnaissance in the area of ​​the Kerch ferry was conducted by the strategic reconnaissance drone of the US Air Force RQ-4A Global Hawk, which flew out of Sigonella airbase in Greece and circled over neutral waters in the Crimea for several hours. At what it is reported that, unlike all the previous times, when reconnaissance of a drone began with a span along the demarcation line in the Donbas, the drone immediately went to the area of ​​the Crimean peninsula and the Kerch ferry, where he spent the whole time of reconnaissance.

No sooner had RQ-4A Global Hawk left the airspace above the neutral waters of the Black Sea, as it was replaced by the US Navy’s Boeing P-8A Poseidon patrol anti-submarine patrol aircraft, which then reconnoitred the coast from Sochi to Novorossiysk, in some places approaching the coast for a distance of 40 kilometers.

Currently, in the area of ​​the Crimean coast, a reconnaissance aircraft of the United States Air Force's Boeing RC-135V is conducting reconnaissance aircraft, which departed from the Greek island of Crete. The aircraft is designed to open air defense systems from long distances.

    Why, they are trying to understand how these "gnats" did not slip through. Which proves once again who really planned this raid.

      What did the Americans want to know? Is Crimea drifting towards Ukraine? No. Is there a Russian army there? There is. Or the news that they did not violate the borders of the Russian Federation and that recognized Crimea as Russian? smile

        Location of forces, including observation stations. And specifically about the present moment. So they keep track of how, at what time we strengthened the group, where the strike weapons were put forward ...

              "Dig in" I meant a little bit differently lol
              We are talking about some kind of "strengthening" and some kind of movements of the Russian Armed Forces in Crimea, after the "adventures" of Ukrainian sailors on the border of the Russian Federation, with which they seem to svp67 more frequent flights of US reconnaissance assets. To which I ironically suggested that the Russian Federation began to actively "dig in". smile But you are right, the Russian Federation is already "entrenched" there. yes
              Any "squeak" of Ukraine, the Baltic states or anyone else, causes as a reaction an increase in the intelligence activity of the USA. Donbass, Baltic, now the Black Sea .. all this has already happened.
              Most likely, the United States simply uses these reasons to intensify, increase its intelligence. request

      No, Sergei. They have long understood that even a mouse will not slip. WE HAVE BEGINNINGS, with firing anti-ship missiles BAL, and BASTION. Here they work out, scan and record parameters. It’s time to stop them from doing this with impunity.

    At one time, when the Korean Boeing KAL-007 in the Far East was shot down, US intelligence also showed activity in that area.

    I’m wondering what will happen if suddenly such a scout violates our state border for some reason, will they also push him out, or will they immediately overwhelm him?

      It is more interesting whether it is constantly taken for maintenance by air defense systems ..

      They don’t overwhelm, and KAL-007 didn’t immediately overwhelm either, there is a hotline until they call us until they find out .. yes and the USA is not Korea of ​​those years, I don’t think that we have headless people in the General Staff! But the Americans, of course, have gone too far .. to somehow teach a lesson, only wisely!

    At one time, the media wrote about inflatable models of tanks, rocket launchers, etc. Now they would be very useful in the Crimea.
    Kutuzov's military cunning is known when Count Loriston, an envoy of Napoleon, came to the Tarutino camp with the aim of concluding a truce. Field Marshal M.I. Kutuzov ordered to lay out more fires in the evening so that the French could see a huge number of them and convey to his emperor information about the size of the Russian troops. It worked. And then Napoleon barely carried his feet out of Russia. Although, of course, if you tell the truth, then "the need for invention is cunning," and Napoleon had to be killed back in Poland in order to prevent his invasion of Russia and the burning of Moscow.

      Napoleon had to be wet in Poland in order to prevent his invasion of Russia and the burning of Moscow.

      It was necessary to conclude an alliance with Napoleon and go together to crush the British into India (it seems like there were such plans). Unfortunately, history does not tolerate the subjunctive mood, but if then the Indian campaign took place, then there would be no war of 1812. and it is likely that Britain would have collapsed without colonies in India. What does Napoleon have to do with this article? In principle, almost none. Nearly. If he could be resurrected, he would have told his descendants ... No, at first he would have gone crazy from what is happening in Europe, and then said that there is no need to fight with Russia. You need to be friends with Russia. A union of even a part of European states and Russia - it will be, maybe not a complete kirdyk, but a huge hemorrhoid for US & GB. And all sorts of reconnaissance aircraft near our borders will only be in fairy tales.

        So, so that the "black raven" does not hover over its head in the form of a Global Hawk (global falcon), it's time over neutral waters with a "seine" and catch this harmful bird ... , harmful to the engine "birdies", drums UAVs in the literal sense of a ram, before the approach of fighters with dropped nets, cables with hooks, etc., for an emergency landing / splashdown with a fast helicopter selection of "game" .. this topical issue, because no one is supposed to shoot down roughly with air defense weapons over neutral waters ...

        If you're about height, then it’s unlikely that a scout walks there, he’s not Powers over our territory. Well, in an extreme case, a very hollow converging course can be applied. In short, there would be a desire, but there will be specialists.

    For some reason, our strategists (bears and swans) haven’t made a friendly visit to Cuba for a long time. And it's probably time for Cuba to "acquire" a UAV and fly in the 95 mile zone (in the interests of Russia, of course).
