Stoltenberg: NATO drones are able to look inside Russia


According to the Secretary General, advanced strategic drones are now able to operate at an altitude of up to 18 kilometers. This will allow NATO to get such advantages that neither Russia nor China have.


The new NATO Global Hawk drones are able to peek inside the Russian Federation for hundreds of kilometers. This was announced yesterday by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg in an interview with Norway's Verdens Gang.

As explained by Stoltenberg, the new UAVs will monitor other countries, being over the territory of the North Atlantic Alliance:

They will fly over NATO territory. But they are able to record what is happening far beyond the borders of our neighboring country.

New UAVs are able to continuously be in flight for up to 30 hours without the need for refueling. At the same time, they can conduct observation and shooting at a distance of up to 200 kilometers. According to the NATO Secretary General, the quality of images of sensors and radars, unlike satellite images, does not depend on light or weather.

In total, the alliance acquired five Global Hawk drones. Two of them are already testing at Sigonella airbase in Sicily. This year three more such devices will join them.

The armament of the North Atlantic Alliance, this unmanned vehicle will arrive in 2022.

    Not new ... the appearance of these birds at our borders clearly indicates the narrow interest of US intelligence in certain fortified areas of Russia ... Crimea, Kaliningrad ... there they are constantly trying to sniff out something.

        So through the fence only 200 kilometers
        New UAVs ... while they can conduct surveillance and shooting at a distance of up to 200 kilometers

        we'll see)))
        Stoltenberg clearly does not remember the size of Russia. Not really get to follow
        new UAVs will monitor other countries over the territory of the North Atlantic Alliance:
        . It’s possible to keep track of the maximum beyond the borders, but certainly not the country wink

    to fill up a couple in the Black Sea, during the flight around Crimea. So a little bit for fun and ask Stoltenberg to show on the map the territory of which NATO state is located there.

      to fill up a couple in the Black Sea, during the flight of the Crimea by them.

      Last year, the network had photos of a drone that crashed on the Black Sea. Even considered the version of the involvement of the UAV in the death of our TU-154, flying to Syria. But all the data is classified.
      Knowing that American reconnaissance aircraft flew over our country until they shot down Powers near Sverdlovsk, we can assume that all this continues at a new technological level.

        at that time there was a technical issue, but the USSR simply didn’t have an air defense system capable of "reaching" the level at which American spies flew. By the way, Powers was saved by the fact that he ejected without using an ejection seat, he was afraid that it was mined so that he would not be captured alive to the advice, and turned out to be right.

          when there was a technical issue, but the USSR simply didn’t have air defense capable of "reaching" the level at which American intelligence agents flew.

          Now from space it is quite possible to carry out reconnaissance, not flying into the airspace.
          Height is not important.
          Until recently, in the north there was no continuous radar field, and now what objects, at what height can it detect?
          Therefore, everything that used to be real and now at a different technological level.

          I believe in a photograph of an UAV of unknown origin crashed on the Black Sea.
          in order for a drone to penetrate our airspace it is not necessary to be a stealth, there are many other technical and organizational solutions.

      Why warn? They already know that this is not good. It is necessary to work out technical means of counteraction and to beat in necessary cases. And you can show what we would like them to see. Once General Chernyakhovsky showed his troops to the enemy in such a way that the Germans were bombed by wooden bombs according to the group that had prepared for the offensive laughing We can show it like this ....

          More information about wooden bombs is possible, please.

          "...... while watching the next Belarusian TV broadcast about fortification, I heard a quote from the report of the commander of the 3rd Belarussian General Ivan Chernyakhovsky:
          In several strategically important areas, I ordered the false positions of tank and artillery units to be equipped. German air reconnaissance tanks, of course, immediately spotted plywood tanks and guns. And in order to show that our cunning and attempt to mislead the German command regarding the direction of the main attack was revealed, the Luftwaffe aircraft carried out an indicative bombardment of the discovered positions. But not real, but wooden bombs. Having completed the mission of exposing the tricks of the Russians, the German command did not pay attention to such sectors of the front, believing that the Russians were preparing attacks in other places. And I, a day before the start of Operation Bagration, ordered to replace the plywood tanks and guns with real ones and hit where they least expected it, from false positions for the Germans ..... "
          The Germans had a similar case:
          ".... During the Second World War, the Germans in Holland built a model of the airfield in great secrecy. Aircraft, hangars, cars, air defense systems - everything was made of wood. But one day an English bomber flew in and dropped the only one on the pseudo-airfield bomb, after which the construction of the airfield was stopped. The British pinned: the bomb was wooden! And then it was even more interesting. After the British dropped the wooden bomb, the Germans decided that the British now know about the "wooden" airfield and decided to put real planes, ... because they will take them anyway for mock-ups! Two days after the relocation of the German planes, the British bombed this airfield again. But with real bombs. At the end of the bombing, the scroll was dropped saying: “But this is another matter ! "...."

      It’s logical, and you can’t argue :).
      True, we don’t especially plan an invasion, but the alien gaze is still unpleasant, so it remains to smile and wave: and in the depths of our land, to do good deeds, you will not see the villain, nevermind :)))))

      Well, firstly, we must bear in mind that America always overestimates the "official" characteristics of its technology. So the enemy is more afraid, and partners buy better.
      Secondly, the radar picture is very uninformative. What is 1 meter resolution. This is 1 pixel image. The tank will give a picture of 7 pixels. The iron garage shell is also 7 pixels. How to distinguish illegal garages from a tank division prepared for battle? Poplar-M from a truck with baked vodka circling posts along forest paths?
      So do not panic. These flights are more provocative. Well, like some hot guy really shoots. Then they will be able to make a lot of noise at the UN, as well as evil Russians shot down a plane in neutral airspace. Take a bunch of sanctions, get a lot of money from the budget for military purposes.
      And at the same time write down the characteristics of air defense and electronic warfare, which can be used for destruction.

    It’s more an advertising statement than an increase to really consider something from what was already visible. But in the absence of real victories, this will probably come down to enhance the prestige of intelligence, even if only in one’s own eyes.

    The only difference is that if it were a statement by Russia, then the entire Western press would be choked with indignation by the manifestation of aggression on its part. And we have silence.

    Due to difficulties with the NATO bloc, the air border is pushed back 300 km, military aircraft and UAVs, as well as aircraft with the transponder turned off, are intercepted ....

    Yah?! And what about the illumination of sensors by scattered laser radiation or just the sun from a parabolic mirror? Maybe they won’t fail, but they won’t be able to “see” anything either.

    Laser, it will be necessary to understand in each platoon and squad? Like parabolic mirrors? Have you seen many parabolic mirrors in the infantry and platoon staff? So these methods of counteraction are good in books and here in VO. In reality, even in the defense zone of a platoon, a company can hardly be a means of counteraction, the same electronic warfare systems ... And this is during military operations, and in peacetime this is not worth talking about at all. Dumb of this in the state. It’s all the more interesting how you “precisely point” a mirror at a drone located 10 km away from you and at least 10 km high ???

    300 km towards the enemy, counting from the state border? That is, do you propose to shoot down enemy aircraft over their territory? Yeah, what you can’t hear on VO

    We can detect these glands. We can stifle control and put in our place. In an extreme case, having intervened in management, drag them to their border, and, having already received full right, bring down to hell.

    It is necessary to burn equipment from a pair of drones, then they can only point to Stoltenberg.
    Once again I am convinced by the example of Stoltenberg that Europeans are militarily frank.
