US Navy: Iranian P-3 Orion dangerously close to USS Normandy missile cruiser

34

The US Navy announced a dangerous approach of the coastal patrol aircraft P-3 Orion, owned by Iran, to American warships. It's about the P-3F version.


To date, Tehran has five such American-made aircraft, remaining in service after a contract with the United States more than 40 years ago - before the Islamic Revolution.

Press Service of the US Navy:

The Iranian P-3 Orion flew dangerously close to the USNS Alan Shepard cargo ship while replenishing the USS Normandy (CG60) missile cruiser in the Gulf of Oman.

We are talking about a military cargo ship of the Lewis and Clark class and a missile cruiser of the Ticonderoga class equipped with the Aegis BIUS.

USS "Normandy" is part of the 5th fleet US Navy.

As stated, "the dangerous approach of Iran's Orion aircraft occurred on November 11." The incident was not immediately known, because (as they write in the American press), the US Navy command was expecting "whether Iran will continue its provocative actions." Apparently, the US command did not wait for “further provocations” from Iran, and therefore decided to publish information at least about the “dangerous rapprochement” of the P-3F with the cargo ship and the US Navy missile cruiser. At the same time, they do not consider their own cruising of warships in the immediate vicinity of Iran’s maritime borders to be dangerous and provocative.

    Well, they did the right thing, the Iranians didn’t fly around the Gulf of Mexico and the Cargo Ship, not in the Gulf of Mexico? They are at Home; So there is nothing to hysteria! Persians - Keep It Up! good

    I remember there recently, the US strategic strike drone dangerously approached the borders of Iran - and, with chagrin, killed itself on Iranian territory

    Whoever can decipher the wording "dangerously close to the ship?" And then these words are often heard on the pages of the media, but are there any restrictions, boundaries?

      The range of the Yakhont missile is up to 300 km. Can be interpreted as dangerous closeness.

          hi striped generally very freely relate to the wording, almost according to the Russian proverb - what drawbar where you turned. They regularly need to be reminded of their own obligations.
          There are flying rules, I remember the distance, but you definitely can’t maneuver close; you can’t fly parallel to the course of the ship, respectively fly over it; the ship's course can be crossed before / after and preferably at a right angle.
          In this regard, Peter the Great’s exit from the plant is interesting: it was swept by the Swedish scout Viggen, the guy played too much and died; the Swedes were not indignant - all honestly.

          Well, do you really still not understand that the "minus players" here are divided into those
          1. To whom you personally stepped on the tail and now they are doing you a little dirty trick;
          2. Who on the team minuses those who are against the policies spelled out in their manuals;
          3. Who just tries to spoil EVERYTHING on this site.
          So do not worry and take this for granted and inevitable for all those who generally decided to get into social networks and register in them. hi

      Whoever can decipher the wording "dangerously close to the ship?"

      There are no specific intervals in numbers. There have been many cases of collisions of military aircraft in the air and collisions at sea. In 1972, the USSR and the USA signed an agreement on the prevention of such cases. There are no specific figures, it all comes down to calls for common sense. Type: Avoid dangerous maneuvers and proximity that could lead to a collision or
      forced change in the course of the route of the "opponent", and stuff like that. So everything is vague. This agreement has been extended several times already,
      in 1979, in 1982, etc. It is still in effect. Therefore, Westerners are constantly whining, connecting the media that Russian planes are "violating", "creating a threat", "showing aggression", etc. There are no such statements from Russia,
      because this is the routine "work" of the Russian Air Force and Navy, and there is nothing to hysteria here. When they brazenly climb, we warn, and silently apply "bulk"... Last time in the Kerch Bay. (like this, in a nutshell) hi

        The last one was this summer. BOD "Admiral Vinogradov" decided to scare their cruiser. Twitched for a long time, decided bulkwhether or not. In the end, he ditched himself. And the cruiser went on its own course without turning, although, according to the press service of the Pacific Fleet, the US Navy cruiser URO Chancellorsville suddenly changed its direction of movement and crossed the course of the Admiral Vinogradov BOD 50 meters from the ship.

      to be precise - "The commanders of the aircraft of each Party shall exercise the greatest caution and prudence when approaching the aircraft of the other Party operating over the high seas and ships of the other Party operating on the high seas, in particular ships engaged in the release or reception of aircraft, and in the interests of mutual security should not allow: simulating attacks by simulating the use of weapons on aircraft, any ships, performing various aerobatic maneuvers over ships and dropping various objects near them in such a way that they pose a danger to ships or hinder navigation. " Similar in the agreement with the British. But does the states have such an agreement with Iran ....

    What do you mean, "dangerously close"?
    In accordance with international law, an airplane can approach the ship arbitrarily close, it is forbidden to fly over the ship at low altitudes. These are peacetime rules, or Iran and the USA are at war.
    Although the Americans become - they can even bring down a civilian plane in peacetime. (As it was in 1988)

    The Americans are slowly ravaging the Persians. And set on fire from the inside ... Well, of course, they are "undemocratic" ...
    And the Persians only have to fly around the cruiser of the striped-eared, which for some reason hang around its borders, with old planes. Perhaps they will break Iran. Look how piled up. And this can change the whole Middle East alignment ... The East is a delicate matter.

      There are games of nerves. The US doesn't need to do anything. Time works for them. Riots in Iraq, now in Iran. Khomeini needs a small war that will unite the people against an external enemy and distract from internal problems. The Persians hijacked a British tanker, shot down an Arab tanker and an oil refinery. Trump cleverly did not respond immediately. As soon as the British tanker was returned, the Iranian tanker and the refinery received a response. And not a sound from the other side! It was a great joy that "Patriot ob-alsya", but maybe that's how it was intended? To provoke and show everyone the Iranian UAVs? The refinery returned to operation in a couple of weeks, the whole world is filled with the cunning of the Persians, the sanctions are getting stronger, 100 killed in Iran.

      Who will "they" break? As long as there is no immediate threat, inside Iran, conservatives and reformers, Westernizers and Islamic fundamentalists can argue, fight and stick a stick in the wheels ... ... They have only suicide bombers at the moment forty thousand, and there will be even more. Rather, the breakers will break off.

    At the same time, they do not consider their own cruising of warships in the immediate vicinity of Iran’s maritime borders to be dangerous and provocative.

    coastal patrol aircraft P-3 Orion
    Which obviously poses a "huge" danger to the US Navy. By the way, and "Orion", if I am not mistaken, is produced in the USA and if you sold it to Iran in due time, then these are your problems. But the fact that he does not represent a military threat (except for an intelligence threat) is probably the Americans know for certain.

      Who knows that he has torpedoes, bombs, mines in his compartment. Even this model is capable of carrying a nuclear bomb And plus 10 pylons under the planes.
      I think that the BASIC task is to track the submarines, the rest is in plain sight.

    The Iranian "Orion" is made in the USA.
    So he saw the US flag on the cruiser and he had an acute desire to fly closer to get a better touch with a piece of a distant and already forgotten, but still Motherland! lol
    P.S. And the Yankees waved to him from the deck with their peakless caps. We thought --- "..Oh! Orion! They're flying! fellow And only then figured out what was happening ... wassat

    For 40 years the Persians continue to use the "damned" American Orions.

    On their submarine planes, the mind is not enough. But how much ambition the Iranians have.

      Iranians use what they have. Modify and F-5, F-14. They are not so developed that all areas of weapons are closed on their own. Spare parts for Orion are bought somewhere abroad. Possibly illegal in the USA.
