France relocated its aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle closer to Syria

France relocated its aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle closer to Syria

France moved its carrier group closer to the coast of Syria. Currently, the ACG, led by the nuclear carrier Charles de Gaulle ("Charles de Gaulle") is located only 120 km from Syria, which allows striking at targets on its territory and neighboring Iraq, follows from new satellite images.


It was previously stated that the French aircraft carrier will head to the Syrian coast to support the French contingent in the fight against the Islamic State banned in Russia. The aircraft carrier went on a campaign on January 22 of this year from the naval base in Toulon. On board are 18 Rafale M multipurpose fighter-bombers, two E-2C Hawkeye long-range radar detection aircraft and three helicopters.

The French Navy’s AUG also includes two missile frigates, an atomic strike submarine, and a supply vessel. In addition, a Greek frigate joined her. Currently, the aircraft carrier group runs near the Russian military bases in Syria - Tartus and Khmeimim.

Meanwhile, the United States again intensified aerial reconnaissance in the area of ​​the Russian MTO Tartus point and the Khmeimim military base. According to Western aviation resources, on Saturday two American reconnaissance aircraft - the P-8A Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft and the EP-3E Aries II long-range electronic reconnaissance aircraft - conducted reconnaissance in the area of ​​the Russian military bases for two hours.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, recently, US aircraft fly along the Syrian coast almost daily, and on some days - several aircraft at once.

        , Bastion + at the Syrians, Syria: 2 complexes / 8 PU. Delivered at the end of 2011, new deliveries are also underway. On November 15, 2016, while striking targets in Syria, the Onyx missiles of the Bastion complex were launched on targets on land. This event is both the first case of using the complex in real combat operations in general, and the first widely known case of using the complex on ground targets.

      Well, you succeeded, and even with spray ...

      If you seriously think about that. to strike at an aircraft carrier of a NATO country, then be prepared for that. that half an hour or an hour after the strike - all of our troops in Tartus and Himeim - will be dead.
      All our equipment will be destroyed.
      This will be exactly the retaliation.
      Retaliation by NATO for your strike on the French aircraft carrier.

        Dear, you forgot about Gerasimov’s speech ...
        The Russian armed forces will respond to a US-planned missile bomb attack on Damascus if it poses a threat to the Russian military. As the chief of the General Staff, Valery Gerasimov, noted that in the areas of the Syrian capital that the United States could strike at, there are Russian troops.

      Media: US Army creates new military bases in northeast Syria
      Anadolu sources say that with the help of a base in the Tel Birak area, the Americans intend to block Russian military access to one of Syria’s main oil production centers in the Rumeilan region.

      ACC, February 9th. US Army Command creates new military facilities in northeastern Syria to gain a foothold in the oil-bearing areas of the country. This was reported on Saturday by Anadolu.

      According to sources, the U.S. military has begun building a base near Tell Birak in Hasek province. Sources say that with the help of this base, the Americans intend to block the Russian military path to one of Syria's main oil production centers in the Rumeylan region. Construction equipment and materials for the construction of the US Armed Forces object were transferred from Iraq. Under another base, the US Armed Forces will convert former Kurdish military installations in the south of Hasek province. This base will be used to control oil production in the province of Deir ez-Zor.

      U.S. President Donald Trump at the end of October 2019 announced the withdrawal of the U.S. military from the area of ​​the Turkish operation, but said that Washington intends to maintain control of oil fields in the north-east of the country. General Mark Milli, chairman of the US Chiefs of Staff Committee, later said the United States intended to maintain control of the area in Deir ez-Zor, where oil and gas facilities are located.

      The Russian Defense Ministry said the United States was smuggling Syrian oil to other countries, and caravans were guarded by US private military companies and special forces. According to US Special Representative for Syria James Jeffrey, their presence in the region is legal, and Washington wants to guarantee that oil facilities in the north-east of the republic will not fall into the hands of terrorists. At the end of November, Jeffrey stated that "according to the Syrian constitution, oil belongs to the Syrian people."

      This is how the dashboard withdraws troops from Syria

    In the year 18, with an attempt to strike Syria, the Frechs already sat in a puddle.
    Only one of the three ships at all was able to launch rockets.
    According to the French, 7 missiles hit some sort of bunker.
    Only the location of the "hit" bunker "they did not report.
    Of the 10 missiles planned to be launched from rafals, 7 flopped into the sea, two engines immediately failed after launch, one because of the failure was not launched at all.

      This is called an attempt to force love. Even the command was given to coordinate the actions of our ships with the French. And even the Syrians had to react: we did not invite them, but since Russia thinks so ... probably so. But love did not work. The French and their de Gaulle simply passed Syria, and we found ourselves in a stupid position. Another HPP.

      Once again, Viktor will try to squeeze Russia out of Syria! We stop them from pirating and robbing there .. They are afraid to fly over the territory of Syria, they bomb everything from far away ..

    And this is what is numbing? Have you decided to curry favor with us, or do you also want some “imperial ambitions” for yourself? Two-faced politics sooner or later, but the debacle ends.

    IMHO, they’ll blame and dump ... And then they really can run into something unpleasant ...

    When we dragged our S-400s there, and anti-ship glands, Charles went away from sin. Apparently, he became bolder, or penguins stuck to his aid with his drawbar. In vain. Now the situation has become even more inaccessible to him. He would go home. As if a brick on his head did not fall ..... A lot of them there.

    "Charles de Gaulle"

    On board are 18 Rafale M multipurpose fighter-bombers, two E-2C Hawkeye long-range radar detection aircraft and three helicopters.


    Not much. Apart from the AWACS planes, our Admiral Kuznetsov TAVKR is in no way inferior to the French aircraft carrier.

    So, when someone opens his mouth, about the weakness or even unnecessity of the Admiral Kuznetsov TAVKR, send them to the French (2nd European economy) or the British (heirs to the tsarina of the seas) and they don’t have AWACS on aircraft carriers.

    French AUG is not impressive either -

    includes two missile frigates, an atomic strike submarine, and a supply vessel. In addition, a Greek frigate joined her.

    Looking forward to a new provocation and then a missile bomb strike on Syria by NATO countries? If the small shaves are pulled up, they will surely crinkle.

    It is strange that the French could not do their AWACS. And planes and fighters and make AFAR and brains.

      Buy a pair of AWACS aircraft is much cheaper than to design and build by yourself. And they don’t need more.
