The United States conducted an air force and navy exercise in the Black Sea

The United States conducted exercises in the Black Sea. As stated in the circulated statement of the Sixth fleet The US Navy, on Sunday, August 2, joint exercises in the sea area were conducted by the US Air Force and the US Navy.


According to the report, the American destroyer URO USS Porter, the Poseidon P-8A reconnaissance aircraft, four F-16 fighters, and the MQ-9 Reaper strike reconnaissance drone took part in the exercises. The KC-135 Stratotanker refueling aircraft was involved in the exercise. At the same time, it was noted that the destroyer USS Porter and the Poseidon P-8A reconnaissance aircraft "are currently operating in the Black Sea."

Practicing joint action with the US Air Force in Europe during this training mission allowed us to conduct a realistic and timely exercise to enhance US readiness to operate at sea in the Black Sea region.

- said the commander of the Sixth Fleet, Vice Admiral Eugene Black.

The command of the US Sixth Fleet stressed that the joint exercises took place in the international sea and airspace, without entering anyone's territorial waters.

Note that the American destroyer USS Porter and the Poseidon P-8A reconnaissance aircraft participated in the Ukrainian-American naval exercises Sea Breeze - 2020, which took place on the Black Sea from July 20 to July 27, 2020.

      This should be expected in the near future.

        Hardly...
        More precisely, it is simply not real.
        Still, with Cuba, our love has long passed, and again relations are established rather slowly.
        Although our base in Luders seems to have not been plundered by the Cubans.

          What is interesting: The Mirikans understand that they are playing with fire, which is why they send such a small number of ships to provocations (I thought that Porter was an old man for decommissioning - it turns out that Porter was introduced to the fleet in 99 !, a very fresh boat!) - and that's it anyway, a couple of Onyxes are enough to send him to the bottom).

      But why? We proudly wrote that "we were there and also took part" In Sea Breeze - 2020, in the sense. Eh, it's a pity that the inscriptions on the waves do not stick as well as on the walls in the entrances! And how proudly it sounded about Ukraine from its admirals: "We were here"

    Any warships in the Black Sea that just left the Bosphorus, IMHO, potential victims of anti-ship weapons systems ... Russia. Both land-based, sea-based and air-based.
    And all sane sailors know about it. However, an order is an order ... they are sailing ... wassat

      Quite right - all the more so these exercises as a visual aid for our Navy and ground anti-ship systems and air defense / missile defense systems

    Interestingly, God forbid, what time of life would the "participants in the exercises" have in a real battle?
    I believe that they would not have thrust themselves into the Bosphorus either.

    In the absence of real opposition, this is a "campaign of young scouts".

    Called - showed the flag (indicated the presence).
    In conditions of combat opposition, a single ship is doomed.

    We need our Navy in the Gulf of Mexico to conduct exercises together with the Cubans, we must protect our allies, especially if they are located in close proximity to our sworn partners.

    They constantly hang around our shores, it does not bode well ...

    The Crimean land is saturated with fragments of metal of German origin. Overseas cowboys brought their own.

    To the Black Sea, like to your home. They showed the allies that everything, as usual, was "under control", before that they even allowed the Ukrainian boats not to walk, namely to swim next to their destroyer, waved a pen to the Romanians, Bulgarians, and with a "clear conscience" and complete reassurance reported on the opposition of Russia in this region.

    My observations Purely American exercises were within 30 comments. The fool was shot only after leaving the Bosphorus. 30 comments. But if at least one boat at Krainsky was involved in these exercises, the soldiers on couch chavnah would have swam, shouting: Russia hold on, the whole world is with us I would have had to fight them on the site until late at night! And so understandably, one USSHA destroyer is not a resident in the Black Sea, and let him have at least some air cover. wassat

    So what prevents us from opening bases in Cuba and conducting exercises? The US 6th Fleet periodically displays its flag in the Black Sea. We read the Montreux convention, are there any excess tonnage? Not. Let them swim, at the same time ours will take a closer look at the tactics of interaction ...

    An annoying action and nothing more. Of course, I am not a naval one, but I am extremely far from the opinion that the Americans will seriously get into this bottle of hydrogen sulfide. A group of more than a couple of destroyers has nowhere to deploy. The entire water area and all the air are shot from the Crimea. Several women from Warsaw and coastal naval aviation, quite logically, complement the situation.
    Is that the blockade, as in the Baltic during the Second World War, and similar annoying and fruitless swoops ... But the Turks can swell up there if the Americans seriously start pushing near the Bosphorus.
    Of course, dreaming of returning Crimea under the auspices of the United States and muddying up your base in Sevas is not harmful. It is harmful not to dream at all. But IMHO, the train left long ago and its tail is not visible.
