"An example of agility and talent": Turkish press on the flight of the F-16 fighter

58

Against the backdrop of growing tensions between Ankara and Athens, footage of the maneuvering of military equipment of both countries attracts increased media attention. Recently, a video of a fighter flight appeared on social networks, which became the "top of the day" among the Turks.


As Yeni Çağ explains, footage of the F-16 flight "shows the talent of Turkish fighter pilots." According to the designated publication, the demonstration of pilots' skills corresponds to the "agenda" - the escalation of the confrontation with Greece.

Military expert from Bahcesehir University (Istanbul) Abdullah Agar believes that the maneuvers of the aircraft testify to "the agility of our F-16s, which protect corvettes and frigates from the air in the Eastern Mediterranean." He believes that the flight of the fighter near the frigate TCG Barbaros is a demonstration of the respect that was shown to the warship by the pilot.

According to Yeni Çağ, such actions allow the Turkish research vessel Oruc Reis to operate freely in disputed waters. He is under constant surveillance from the side of Greek warships. As Pentapostagma points out, Ankara, having sent this vessel to work on the shelf, “crossed the red line”. According to him, now the Greek military is completely untied.

      They fly professionally, but shoot even better. Such shots will not be found anywhere else. The pilot drove the rocket into a pychera under the mountain, where the terrorists set up an ammunition dump. The explosion wave came from the other end of the mountain.

        It is his PROFESSION that obliges him to fly professionally as a pilot! wink if you didn't know about it) lol
        Better to shoot him is obliged by the SPECIFICATION of his profession and to hit exactly as well. wink
        What is such delight when hitting a stationary target, without any opposition and performing combat maneuvers? belay
        Ordinary exercise on KBP of the aviation type, on the destruction of targets such as 662-1,2.3 or 80,82,84, etc. UR with L or T GOS

      It is a pity that respect was not expressed by the passage of the sound barrier directly opposite the ship.

      exactly
      the skill of pilots as infantrymen and others is not measured by the brilliance of their boots and the chased pace of parades.

      in battle it means nothing.
      such shots, for example, can say something about a real skill:

      Erdogan quarreled with Arabs, Jews, Armenians, Europeans, Americans and Chinese (because of the support of the Uighur terrorists). The Persians and the Russians are still patient. The Turks themselves, or rather the Kemalists, who ruled for a century and were overthrown after an unsuccessful coup, are still quite strong. Therefore, of course, soon everyone will decide to kill this subject and divide Turkey. It's a question of time. The Turks themselves have so far only noted small dirty tricks, they do not dare to do big things. They were given flags, after which they would of course crash. For example Sirte.

        But it's still interesting to watch a leader who, for the sake of a nationalist idea, is ready to quarrel not only with neighboring countries ... but also with Russia.

          "and the rest were guilty of what" Turkey after the Treaty of Sevres (losing in everything), Mustafa Kemal did not recognize this treaty, fought, reached the Lausanne Treaty, (crossed out Sevres) concluded. But after the death of Ataturk, slowly, in all spheres, the then authorities Turks gave up their positions, lost a lot (due to their dependence on the USA and Europe) what was indicated to Lausanne, much was not fulfilled, ignored by the outside, for example, Greece. In short, if Turkey demands, it goes to the fact that everything Of course, this is not to the liking of the neighbors, who have settled down comfortably for decades on violations of the points of this Lausanne. Turkey has become stronger, now it demands its own, which is due.

          ----
          Once again, the idea is clear. The gradual revival of the Ottoman Empire. "Imperial Sentiments". Turkey has grown strongly in recent decades, and Erdogan took risks. In my opinion, it will not work.
          Egypt has its own motives for opposing Turkey, Israel has its own, and Saudia has its own.
          Erdogan will be stopped, and Turkey will lose its economic achievements and ratings in conflicts.

              Turkey has declared enough, so that countries of different levels have rallied. (Greece, Israel, Egypt, Saudis, Syria) In fact, from regional rivals, it is slowly turning into enemies. I think the main problems are still ahead

                In any case, Turkey left the framework that was created for him from 1940 to 2000. Therefore, everyone around became twitchy, they do not like it. The Turks understand this, they will be even more persistent. There is no other option. If you look at the map of the Mediterranean Sea and the location of those interested countries, it is obvious that first of all there should be Turks, and not the USA, the French or their like.

                    Just the same, the Turks invite countries to the water area to the negotiating table (for example, the United States, France are not such). But they ignored Turkey and gathered and conclude some kind of agreements without them. The reaction in this case is obvious, and what we see is the reaction. Even now, Erdogan invites in every introduction (he re-invited in his speech yesterday) the coastal countries, so that the economic zones will peacefully, without straining, decide between themselves. Here is the weight of the story about the events.

                      To invite to negotiations and to be ready to negotiate, to compromise things of different levels. The Turks are expanding their zone of influence and this, in turn, suggests that they are not ready to negotiate.

I pointed out, “Just the same, the Turks are inviting countries in the water area to the negotiating table.” They are the local challenging players. The United States has a group there, led by an aircraft carrier, and the French are creating a base in Greek Cyprus. It was not by chance that I cited them as an example. Do you understand now?

      Do not. On the contrary, you need to establish a prize for flying next to the vessel, with a minimum distance from the board. The winner is an Orthodox birch cross.

    here I am in any case for the Greeks. The Turks are clearly getting impudent, not about the flight. but about how they behave. Erdogan thinks he is a sultan ...

      My friend, the Turks are not insolent one iota. They just sacredly observe the principle of capitalism - rob another before he rob you laughing The profit will pay off any sacrifice. So as long as they are robbing those whom they can rob, they will have nothing - everything "according to concepts." Now, if a conflict of interest arises with some, then another coup attempt in Ankara, and not the fact that it is unsuccessful.

    While this Turk was showing in his best ability, the Greeks smashed a private Turkish boat. The boat was drowned, the wounded two Turks and a Syrian were taken to a Greek hospital. The Turkish forces arrived in the incident area saw only an empty sea.
