USA relocates MQ-9 Reaper drones from Poland to Romania

The United States deployed the MQ-9 Reaper drones from Poland to Romania. This relocation is temporary, according to the US Air Force Command in Europe.


MQ-9 Reaper drones, personnel and auxiliary equipment with the 2nd detachment of the 52nd expeditionary operational group from the air base in Miroslawiec (Poland) were temporarily relocated to the 71st air base in Campia-Turzii (Romania) to support a number of operations on the continent in order to helping NATO allies. This includes operations in cold weather and participation in various exercises in the region.

- said in a statement.

According to the command, drones are being flown to Romania for the second time. They were first relocated to Campia-Turziy in the summer of 2019 during the construction of the runway in Miroslawiec. This time, drones will be in Romania until the beginning of spring.

To ensure the operation of the MQ-9 Reaper from Romania, the United States built the necessary infrastructure at the Campia-Turziy air base, including a hangar for storing drones.

The U.S. Air Force's MQ-9 Reaper drones have been carrying out reconnaissance missions at the Miroslavets Polish military base since May 2018, but they began to use all their capabilities from March 1, 2019. The location of American drones in Poland is dictated by the country's geographical position and "strategic importance." The US Air Force command does not disclose the true objectives of the deployment of drones in Poland, being dissuaded by conducting "intelligence work in the interests of protecting military facilities and personnel of the US armed forces and their allies."

    "To accidentally drop" one such, or so that he "inadvertently" flew into someone else's airspace and disappeared without a trace. ..

        It seems like they are negotiating quietly on the return of the Russian contingent to Cuba and not only to Cuba, but also to Vietnam.

          In Venezuela, too, some kind of stirring is going on ... hi It has long been clear that Russia cannot lock itself in on its territory, their plan "Anaconda" will not crush us right away while it is working well.
          It's time to move to their continent by their own methods, so the allies would not be found to be cowardly .. China, he’ll pinpoint something .. Although he has already accumulated enough military resources

      No. Drop one - "sworn" partners will find out that there is an opportunity to drop them and draw conclusions.
      If necessary, arrange a mass desertion of the Rapters from the battlefield, or set them on the former owners yes

    Americans strengthen intelligence units and conduct mass reconnaissance activities around the Southern Military District ... Turkey, Romania, Iraq, Georgia ....
    What would happen if Crimea remained in Ukraine? There would be a NATO base in Saki, the Black Sea Fleet would be squeezed or squeezed in Sevastopol ...
    Crimea is a pearl, the prize of the Ukromaydan, and it did not go to those who paid for this dog’s wedding

      C'mon, you're so worried. And in Soviet times, along our borders, scouts under all the flags of NATO (and not only) flew packs. And now drones are doing it more often. There is no difference (except for a higher technical level of intelligence). I am more than sure that for these cases, a whole range of modern countermeasures has been developed. So by and large, everything is old. I heard the same thing in the 80s.

      Do you think that the trouble with the geoport in Novorossiysk was just started? At that time, the return of Crimea bloodlessly and with a salute was not even dreamed of (although, I think, they tried to push Yanukovych in this direction).

    So it is necessary to watch in the districts of the World Cup and PMR. These skunks just don't do anything. And to start a trick in this corner they would be very out of place. In addition, Turkey and Iran need to be alert.

    Hanging out on the street are two boys of a characteristic appearance - in sweatpants, leather jackets, caps ... One of them climbed onto some concrete pedestal, sat down like a kid "on the courts" and shouted joyfully to the second: "Look, I'm a gargoyle!"
    So I understand that the gargoyle is now Romania .... bully

    By and large, NATO had ONE center of power - in the FRG. After the collapse of the USSR and the expansion of the bloc to the east, a similar "center" (s) are being made in Poland. And possibly in Romania.

    Yes, it's just warmer there. If their Reapers do not start in the freeze, damage to the state.

    Yes, "nothing happens so permanently that something is temporary." So I understand that these "robots" will now start working against Crimea

    Obviously, the Americans are preparing for spring provocations against Crimea. It would be good to convey to the "partners" that not only crossing the airspace of Russia is a violation of its borders with all the ensuing consequences, but the conduct of aerial reconnaissance from a UAV near its borders is also a violation of these very borders. Therefore, the UAVs of the Americans can be shot down as aircraft that violated the border of the Russian Federation, shot down without any warning or notification of their owners.
