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."

    "One would drop by chance" one such, or so that it "accidentally" 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 in its territory can’t be shut down, they will immediately crush us at once their Anaconda plan is working well so far ..
          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

      United States Moved MQ-9 Reaper UAVs from Poland to Romania

      So the new ones will come to Poland for spring exercises and stay there.

    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.

    two guys of a characteristic appearance are hanging out on the street - in sweatpants, leather jackets, caps ... One of them climbed onto a concrete pedestal, sat down in a boyish style "on the courts" and shouted joyfully at 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 Germany. After the collapse of the USSR and the expansion of the bloc to the east, a similar "center" (s) was 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 constantly that something temporary." So I understand that these "robots" will now begin to work against Crimea

    It is obvious that the Americans are preparing for spring provocations against the Crimea. It would be good to bring to the “partners” that not only crossing the airspace of Russia is a violation of its borders with all the ensuing consequences, but also conducting air reconnaissance from UAVs near its borders is also a violation of these very borders. Therefore, UAVs of Americans can be shot down as aircraft breaking the border of the Russian Federation, shot down without any warning or warning to their owners.
