MiG-31 pilot of the Russian Aerospace Forces welcomed NATO “escort” to F-16

72

A video appeared on the network, filmed by the pilot of the Russian Air Force fighter-interceptor. It is published on the Fighterbomber channel. The 50-second video demonstrates how a Russian military pilot decided to greet with a wave of his hand the pilot of the F-16 NATO fighter.


It is known that the “meeting” of the fighters took place in neutral airspace during the escort of the Tu-31MS missile carrier by MiG-95 aircraft.

At some point, the NATO fighter took a parallel course, and the Russian officer, waving that hand and showing his thumb, gave a sign that the "escort" was carried out in the area of ​​visual contact.



It is not reported where exactly such a meeting took place. It is possible that such escorts have recently turned into quite routine activities. However, often only the US Air Force (Navy) command can make strange accusations of "unprofessional" actions by Russian military pilots. Over the past few years, the Pentagon has received dozens of accusations of either "dangerous rapprochement" or "a threat to the Russian military sides to the American military sides." At the same time, Russian fighter pilots did not intend to commit any really dangerous actions.

Based on the situation presented on the frames, an important fact can be noted: the Russian aerospace forces rocket carriers were accompanied by Russian aerospace forces fighters for greater flight safety.

К тому же мы видим только один ракетоносец, правый перехватчик прикрытия и одного натовского соколика, который будет бить себя в грудь, что в одну харю предотвратил налет "злых Русских"

    It’s to blame that it’s not the topic, but here Manturov shocked about Armata. According to the minister, these tanks (Armata) were sent to Syria "in order to take into account all the nuances in combat conditions." “In Syria, as you know, it is precisely this kind of test,” said Manturov, noting that this will help form a “final look” of the tank, which will be supplied to the Russian army. So, Schaub all-scandal upset ...

    Такое было и в советские времена. Когда была "политическая расслабуха" между СССР и США, лётчики и моряки вели себя взаимно "уважительно-пижонски", показывая свой профессионализм
    друг другу, и приличные "международные" жесты. В период "полит-обострения", - всё наоборот . Лётчики и моряки вели себя соответственно. Были случаи столкновений в воздухе, и даже "тараны". А про "навалы" моряков, все в курсе. В 70-х годах, было принято соглашение между СССР и США по взаимному обеспечению безопасных интервалов в воздухе и на море. Поэтому, они сейчас всегда нас обвиняют в нарушениях, не "замечая" своих. У меня много есть информации на эту тему, но нет времени её сейчас выложить.

      Не напрягайтесь. Это действительно "воздушный корабль", а не "истребитель". В ближнем бою нет шансов против любого истребителя. Пушка нужна чисто гипотетически для подачи сигналов воздушным судам-нарушителям (кстати, стрелять из неё опасно для самолёта). Основной противник МиГ-31 - SR-71, В-52 и АВАКС, которые уничтожаются в переднюю полусферу, а также крылатые ракеты "Томагавк" (в переднюю полусферу на фоне земли) группой из двух самолётов. Да много чего можно повесить, в том числе, Р-60, однако самолёт имеет значение как перехватчик, когда вооружён ракетами с дальностью пуска 150+. А так да, воздушный пилотаж может делать. Но смысл?

            Вы меня не так поняли. Мой пост ни в какой мере к вам не относился. Вы все правильно написали. Про снаряды "адашные"не только слышал, нои дежурил с ними. У нас всегда стоял на БД к паре в дополнение борт по АДА, заряженный именно ими. Но по ним мне подниматься не приходилось, крайние под'емы были еще в 90е. Сейчас ГШ6-23 разрешили и тренировочно "юзать", малой зарядкой. деформаций лафета не наблюдалось. Начинал службу в 180 ГвИАП (Громово), в районе 90 года один из немногих полков на 31х, отработавший пушкой на полигоне,потом пришла телега-вклейка в РЛЭ.

              Да, летал в Правдинске. Но у нас уже по адашкам не "работали" ("закончились" они к моему времени тогда). Но ребята, которые работали по ним, ещё летали у нас (зубры).
              Of the guns, many of them fired at the time (during military trials 31). And the fact that the Gromovsky regiment was shooting, I heard.

    Some “official” persons were very wary of NATO smiles and welcome gestures captured in the photo, not without reason believing that they were not left without the same response from our pilots, which was seen as a loss of the proper level of vigilance and insufficiently educated hatred for world imperialism. And it was not known that hatred, the upbringing of which "professional patriots" worked so hard, abstractly, by itself, cannot settle in the soul of a normal person, for it is born only out of love - love for the fatherland, for one’s people, for one’s life, to the family finally. Good and love live in the soul of a patriot, not evil and hatred.
