"Russian pilots have always been known for their courage": the Chinese Sohu spoke about the implementation of the interceptions of the Russian Aerospace Forces

44

The Chinese edition of Sohu came out with a material that examines the situation with the implementation of interceptions by Russian fighters of US Air Force and Navy aircraft. The author notes that in the United States, it is often reported about the "unsafe and unprofessional" actions of Russian military pilots who go to intercept.


From the article:

Such statements coming from Washington indicate that Russian pilots have clearly groped the pain points of the military aviation USA.

In particular, an example is given of a maneuver associated with the interception of a P-35A Poseidon anti-submarine patrol aircraft by a Su-8S fighter over the eastern Mediterranean. The author tells the readers that the Russian pilot flew the Su-35S at high speed just over 8 meters in front of the nose of the American aircraft.

From the material:

Such actions by the Russians scare the US Army.

At the same time, the author writes in the Chinese media that "the power of the Russian military aviation is significantly lower than the power of the Soviet military aviation, but the actions of the Russian military pilots show a high level of training."

In Sohu:

Russian pilots have always been known for their courage.

It is noted that the actions that the Russian Aerospace Forces are taking when intercepting US aircraft "lead to a knockdown for the Americans." The author believes that this is an effective means against American provocations, which are often carried out thousands of kilometers from American air borders. The material cites as an example the activity of the US Air Force (Navy) in the South China Sea, to which Beijing is looking for an answer.

        Amers in Korea loved the Chinese psychic attacks at night. The Chinese were naked to the waist and with a bunch of grenades in their belts ran to the Amers in the trenches. Not many Americans experienced such a night.

          The Chinese probably experienced them even worse.

            Not without this. If I am not mistaken, 2 million Chinese in the Korean War laid down their lives for North Korea.

              If not for the support of the USSR, they would have put at least 10 million, but they would not have won the war. What can you do, the Chinese are not marked by victories in wars. Perhaps Tibet was captured, but that's how they say that. Little Vietnam, and then piled on them.

              In total (not simultaneously) less than 1 million Chinese military participated in the Korean War. The Chinese transported from 100 to 200 thousand soldiers across the Amnokkan, and they put to flight 300 thousand group of allied troops, going to the border with the PRC. Several American divisions were pinned to the sea and only thanks to a quick evacuation by sea, they were not destroyed. According to the headquarters of the USSR Navy, the number of operating American warships throughout the war was maintained at a level of at least 500, of which up to 2 dozen large artillery ships of the cruiser or battleship type. In addition to the Americans, warships of other states also operated, for example, the "light aircraft carrier squadron" consisting of 10 British and 1 Australian aircraft carriers. The number of US ground forces was maintained at 300 thousand, not counting the marines and 5 air forces. The Americans rested and were treated in Japan, which rose well in this war as well as in the Vietnamese war.
              The United States has created a myth about the terrible losses of Chinese volunteers, but this is just propaganda. The Korean War was attended by experienced commanders of the communist army and partisan detachments, who went through the long years of war with the Japanese army with the full technical advantage of the Japanese, including Japanese air superiority. In the conduct of partisan operations, the ratio of losses was generally 1: 3 in favor of the Chinese.
              And in general, they fought not for North Korea, but for themselves. China made the decision to send troops when the Americans approached the border with China.

    The last time they clashed with the Americans in air battles in Vietnam, although "illegally." Here in Korea they fought for real, and the Americans could not complain about the "weak enemy" ... Why don't they remember?
    The training of our pilots is obviously growing. The raid increases, there are no problems with fuel ... And our pilots have always had enough will and courage ...

      There weren't any of our pilots in Vietnam ... One battle only when our instructor with a Vietnamese student on a MiG-21UB without weapons dodged the Phantom chtol.
      In Korea, they shot down 1300 with the loss of 345 of their own ... But this MiG-15 rulezz was

        MiG-21US (there were also U and UM) - the dove of peace! Sparky UB is already MiGari 23e. And yes, ours were instructors and advisers there, did not take part in air battles directly. And that fight with our instructor in the aerobatic zone was with a pair of F-4s. They could not shoot him down, having shot everything to a piece of iron, they left not salty. But ours with the "listener" also did not reach the point from the zone, they ejected at full fuel consumption. In the spark, he is already underdone, to put it mildly, but then around his own backside they were spinning intensively on the afterburners and that's it - hello dome, jungle, smiling Vietnamese "collective farmers" ...

      If you believe the Chinese official history, then 5 years ago they flew dragons and defeated everyone with missiles, but apart from these stories, there is no real confirmation, from the word at all.
      Although it has long been rumored that there are planes in China too, and some of them sometimes even fly.

    Maybe someone will recall when a Chinese pilot put the keel of his plane into the propeller of an American scout. The penguins had to board an accident in China. It's a pity the Chinese pilot died. So they can fly too.

      Here, in short hi
      an incident that happened in 2001. Then, in about the same area (over the international waters of the South China Sea, south of Hainan Island), a Chinese fighter collided with an EP-3 US Navy reconnaissance aircraft. A Chinese pilot was killed and an American aircraft made an emergency landing on Hainan Island.

    In the 95th on the 50th anniversary of the victory in Murmansk, what our people did in the sky. I was with Alyosha, not many probably saw aerobatics from above. I remember all my life. And in the end, the pilot, leaving for home at the airfield, passed over the mobile flight control point. You can reach the plane with your hand. AC with a capital letter.

    My sister's husband fought a little in Korea. So they already understood what the Americans were saying. We had such a plan - to intercept them so that they would not be able to escape. If we saw our planes from afar, then the Americans always had a command - we were off.
