Britain relocates Typhoon planes and 150 troops to Lithuanian Šiauliai


150 British troops sent to Lithuania. We are talking about military personnel who are members of the 135th expeditionary detachment of the Royal Air Force. The British Ministry of Defense talks about the reasons for the relocation.


It is noted that the British are arriving in Lithuania to replace other NATO troops who participated in a mission called "NATO Air Police to Protect Airspace over the Baltic Region." According to some reports, they are changing the personnel of the "air police" from Spain and Belgium.

The decision to transfer the British military from the base of Lossimuth (Scotland) was not easy for the command. The fact is that the question was initially considered either of postponing rotation measures, or even of temporarily abandoning the patrol of airspace over the Baltic from the airfields of the Baltic republics. The cause was coronavirus.

Now, the British military department says that "all safety measures have been taken to protect pilots and technical managers from infection."

It is known that British servicemen and military equipment, including Typhoon fighters, are stationed at the airfield of Lithuanian Siauliai.

Thus, the number of British troops in the Baltic for the summer will increase, reaching almost 1000 people. The fact is that in Estonia there are currently over 800 British soldiers and officers.

UK Secretary of Defense:

We will maintain security in the Baltic region. Our Typhoon fighters will rise from an airfield in Lithuania if any aircraft approaches the borders of the Baltic countries or flies with the transponder turned off.

    Britain relocates Typhoon planes and 150 troops to Lithuanian Šiauliai

    They are not “air policemen”, but KoVi19 peddlers are being transferred, so to speak: “they share the common European value”

      Yes, judging by the number of deaths from KoVi19 in Britain, especially in dynamics, things are deplorable there as in the United States. And first of all the poor people suffer.

          Yes, it began in 2004 with four fighters of the air forces of one of the NATO countries with their change to the airplanes of another country every three months (from March 31, 2006 - every four months), and now, cockroaches have spread across the Baltic

                      Here I agree with the answer of A. Staver, from 3.07.17.
                      Alas, the answer will be really local. For a specific country. For a specific army. And even the loss of units of serious armies in this "otvetku" will not lead to the development of conflict. There will be another “regrets, concerns, the search for a diplomatic solution" ... But there will probably be no more countries that will be hit.
                      What are my claims based on? At the events of recent years. More precisely, in the tragedies of recent years. The downed Russian plane by a pilot of a NATO member country led to a war between NATO and the Russian Federation? "Fooled" "Tomahawks" who "did not want" to carry out their combat mission, led to war? "Accidentally" sunk Russian reconnaissance ship led to war? Disabled for a long time the American warship in the South China Sea led to war? ...

                        I personally do not believe in local kipish on a European TVD with the participation of the Russian Federation. If anyone tries to drag Russia in - only a suicide, in his right mind this is unrealistic. And the western direction is not 'proud Georgians', this is Nata. The most nervous post in the Russian Federation is the operational duty officer of the General Staff in the western direction, as it is called there. It is he, not the GDP, not Shoigu and no one, it is this Operational who will have to make decisions under which later, if possible, the Commander-in-Chief and others will sign

    Inspired ... What is it to build a modern airfield that accepts all types of aircraft ?! These are billions invested by the USSR in their construction in the countries of the Warsaw Pact and the Baltic states. I have visited many. And all this went to NATO for free. Moreover, now they are all used against Russia. My heart bleeds!

      There, the locals also did not remain in debt, and inspire the “defenders” from time to time with inspiration, they teach manners. The receiving party was forced to organize a military police unit in order to protect the 'defenders' from the local ones and protect the airfield

        Yes it was. In my opinion, in 2006, two blacks from this just the same NATA Air Police were spotted by the locals. Then, Lithuanian politicians still had to kiss and justify in the ass of Amers that this was by no means a racist action, but a purely everyday conflict! laughing

    Britain relocates Typhoon planes and 150 troops to Lithuanian Šiauliai

    I imagine how difficult it is for “poor” NATO members to rush between the deployment of troops and military facilities in the front zone, which in its military-geographical position is not defended in principle no and to convince the population of the Baltic states, frightened by horror stories about “Russian aggression”, that a “friend” (that is, NATO) will come to the rescue and will not leave it in trouble.
    Hence, the many-day and thousand-kilometer “dragoon raids” on the roads of Eastern Europe of battalions from as many NATO countries as possible, which are hardly possible in real military conditions, but look so beautiful in the media, and in which case facilitates the application of Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty on the principle "Ours are beaten."

    Typhoon is a barrel organ of level f-16, inferior to it in most indicators, but with a thrust vector.
    And for its three prices.
