An F-18 fighter of one NATO country tried to approach the plane of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, but was pushed aside by Russian escort fighter. This was reported by the TV channel "Russia-24" (VGTRK).


Su-27 prevented the F-18 from approaching the plane of the Minister of Defense of Russia


Russian fighters Su-27 Baltic fleetaccompanying the plane of the Minister of Defense of the country did not allow NATO F-18 fighter to approach him. The Shoigu plane was located above the neutral waters of the Baltic Sea and followed from Kaliningrad to Moscow, accompanied by fighters of the Baltic Fleet.

This is not the first time NATO aircraft attempted to approach the plane of the Russian Minister of Defense. The previous attempt occurred in June 2017, when the F-16 of the Polish Air Force made an attempt to get closer, but was also pushed back by escort aircraft.

The Minister of Defense paid a visit to Kaliningrad, where he visited one of the stages of the Marine Landing Contest of the Army International Games "ARMI-2019" and laid the foundation stone for the construction of the new Nakhimov School.

Earlier, the head of the military department said that aviation NATO has increased the number of flights along Russian borders, which could lead to air incidents.

The intensity of NATO aviation flights at Russian borders has increased. As a result, the danger of provocations and military incidents sharply increased.

- stressed the Minister of Defense.

          In such cases, when a threat is created by the maneuver of the first persons of the Power, there must be unshakable rules. DO NOT CLOSE AND DO NOT INTERFERE !!! right up to the downing and it doesn’t matter what over neutral territory, it’s like diplomats have immunity from screening and obstacles to movement. A Spaniard from Phi would impose the colors of olives from just one warning volley.

            If such a rule is adopted, then it should apply in peacetime to civilian ships, in which hundreds of people travel! But naturally without shooting!

          The Spanish aces on their EF-18A fighter from the 12th Spanish Air Force wing assigned to the Torrejón Air Base airbase sent comrade Shoigu in the Baltic sky today.

          Since April 02, 2019, 05 EF-18A fighters of the Spanish Air Force from this wing have been performing tasks according to the plan of the Baltic Air Policing mission from Emari air base, Estonia.

          As for the domestic escort aircraft of Comrade Shoigu, the Su-27 is captured in the maneuvers in the first part of the video, as I understand from the Baltic Fleet, but at the end of the video I saw the Su-35 from the * fighter regiment, based in *** , Karelia.

          From this it follows that the escort for the Minister was provided along the entire route of his Tu-154 over hostile waters and in the equally hostile sky of NATO. Https: //t.me/operline_en/18076

              You generally saw the link or not at the end of the text, go and ask. The operational line was mistaken only two times in two years, immediately apologized to the readers and corrected the mistake in the text. Regarding the Tu-154, the author meant that Shoigu used different planes during his raids in the Baltic, and not one.

          They are not based in Šiauliai on an ongoing basis, NATO fighters are sorted “in the Baltic air policing mission,” the Baltic states do not have their own resources, and are not expected. And who is asking them at all ...

        "They're not slurping truffle over there either." I don’t remember where the phrase came from. The pilot of efa carried out the maneuver competently, remained above the "drying", so he got the advantage. Of course, I am glad that efa were so cleverly driven away. But one question tormented: why was he even allowed to approach such a distance? whatIn my opinion, a potential enemy needs to be intercepted even before it approaches the "pistol" distance, no?

          PS By the way, he could have shot down a plane with a missile from 150 km, but there would have been a big scandal with unpredictable consequences. But if it was just an “accidental collision”, it could have carried with lesser consequences.

                  This, if he does not commit evolution, so as not to collide with the Su-27 pushing him out.
                  And then, did he get in touch on the channel, went ahead with the passage of the cockpit of a foreign side?
                  No, he simply “recoiled,” as he would say at his airport, from the “abnormal Russian”.

Su chose the most competent position, from bottom to bottom, he perfectly sees the NATO member and can perform any maneuvers.

    Beautiful, masterful, bravo! Whose plane was it? In NATO, they are in service with the United States, Canada and Spain. I didn’t notice any identification marks, but judging by the drawing of the “raised cabin” from the bottom on the fuselage - this is Canadian. There, such a coloring scheme was applied back in the 80s. I once read and remember the photograph from the Foreign Military Review. But ours is Wobsche BEAUTY! angry

        Drying presses on the gas, leaving for the cabling and capturing Hornet in the sight, launches a rocket or activates a gun. Which is easier?
        hornet with a right dive flips on a dive goes into the upper side hemisphere above the dryer

        and the left half-shift at the peak turns the same hornet into a kite above the chicken’s head

        Hornet needs to slow down and turn around anyway, and Sushka is already behind him with weapons directed towards him. In addition to the fact that there is a second drying.

    Shoigu is a political figure, the son of party nomenclature, the husband of the daughter of a member of the Politburo who has not served in the SA for a day or trained in military institutions ... a builder ...
    Yes, he flew to Spitak with a newly created rescue team with sabaks in December 1988, military pilots remember ...
    The military remembers how in the 90s he pulled up all the young and daring from the SA and said that now you are the Ministry of Emergencies ... in the Fire Department they were called tankmen ...
    Military people remember how he made a major general from a colonel of the Ministry of Emergencies in an instant and increased the staff from 50 cripples of pensioners of the Civil Defense to 5 fighters of the Fire Department of the region ...
    People remember how he took over the Fire Department, and attached it to the Ministry of Emergencies, having moved the Fire Department and the Ministry of Internal Affairs as a whole, receiving both the Hero and the general epaulettes ...
    People remember ...
    Information for consideration ... If someone thinks that the oldest member of the Government is Chubais .... no, this is Shoigu ...

      Son, husband, daughter ...
      It is obvious to me that Shoigu serves Russia and the Russian people. And it serves very well! And everything else, in this context, is insignificant!

    Yes, the escort was so-so to the plane that it was let off at point blank range and this is not the first time, it is interesting that our planes can fly up to the board of the US Secretary of Defense.

    how did he "prevent it from approaching" if the F-18 pilot literally looked into the window

    The distillation is strange .. so the F-18 has an advantage in height and a maneuver for shooting at close range .. And ours fell down ..

      This is a moot point, drying from this position can make a cobra and end up in the tail from the bottom of the 18th and it has no chance

        The Spaniard has two Sides at the endings + 2x120С for Drying 2хР-73 + Р-27Р. If the Hornet rolls over, then Su (even Su-35 with OVT) does not leave Sayd at such a distance. However, if Su turns to the P-73 capture zone and Hornet does not help.

        But while someone is measuring their eggs tighter and someone is cutting more than hell, fortunately.

          So Su even walked behind Hornet. That is, the latter was on the fly all the time while getting closer. They decided to drive away when he came too close.

    In this case, of course, it was possible to act more decisively and tougher, but nevertheless, there is a good indicator of how to act with them.

    Quote: from article
    F-18 fighter of one NATO country tried to get closer to the plane of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, but was pushed aside by Russian escort fighter. It is reported by the channel "Russia-24"

    In fact, the F-18 did not try to get closer, but got closer, and too close and brazen. Where did our escort pilots look ?! Why allowed?
    And after the first maneuver, our plane somehow fell down, and the F-18 again rose one level with Shoigu. I do not understand the cunning maneuvers of aviators, because I am an infantry? Or is it our lack of professionalism?

      He got closer, yes ... yes, only Drya walked behind, holding him in sight (and possibly aiming). And as he came too close they gave the order to drive away. Hornet, seeing from the mirrors approaching Sushka, gave gas to the side. Drying, continuing to keep him in sight, went a circle down. But even from there she could get it if she wanted to. But Hornet lost sight of her. And since Dryers worked as a couple .... Hornet had no chance whatsoever of doing anything bad.

        Denis hi , I was surprised that the Spaniard did not completely withdraw from the rhinestone, but in two stages. I do not know, either arrogant or stoned ...

    In general, this is the Su-35S, and as you can see, the FA-18 during the maneuver took an advantageous position from above, ours needed to occupy the starting position for the typical one, then it would be really beautiful. But so nothing too ;-)

    What does it mean that he didn’t let him get close? He already didn’t look into Shoigu through the “window” !!!! how did he get him so close under ?!

    NATO conducted a visual identification of the type of aircraft and the number of the board.
    After terrorist attacks in the States, it became a common procedure.

    There are no questions on the article. But here it is:
    The intensity of NATO aviation flights at Russian borders has increased. As a result, the danger of provocations and military incidents sharply increased.

    - stressed the Minister of Defense.
    Almost every week almost in the news (about increasing the intensity of flights). Compared to last week, last year ??? And each time he "drove". It sounds somehow solid.

    It is not clear why this F-18 needed to be approached at all, did he want to scare our minister, or say hello to him?

    Well, as you know, it is categorically forbidden to shoot down Israeli planes regularly shooting with "precision" weapons over the state of Syria, but thanks for that, it’s still flowers, whether it’s still buit-ah and humanism, the Afghan remembered "arms parity"! and in general, isn’t it time for the Jews to directly liquidate our leaders, like their liquidation in Lebanon, I remember in those years, the Palestinians regularly buried their commanders, although there are also a dozen killed children
