NATO AWACS reconnaissance and radar warning aircraft will be stationed in Krakow to protect joint exercises of the American and Polish military aviation under the code name "Aviation Detachment Rotation 20-4". In accordance with a statement issued by the press service of the North Atlantic Alliance, a NATO AWACS aircraft was sent to Krakow on August 21 and will remain there for the next seven days, taking part in the exercises.


This is reported by the Polish media.

The plane arriving in Krakow will interact with Soviet and American-made fighters of the Polish Air Force, as well as with the Polish ground control center. It is planned to pay special attention to testing the interaction of the AWACS aircraft with Soviet-made aircraft. Of the Soviet-made combat aircraft in the Polish Air Force - the Su-22M (planned for decommissioning in 2016, but then it was decided to extend the operation) and the MiG-29.

The AN / APY-2 radar installed on AWACS aircraft allows observing airspace covering an area of ​​10 thousand square kilometers during flight at an altitude of 312 kilometers.

The NATO press service emphasizes that the participation of the aircraft in the exercises is part of a long-planned program, which includes flights over the territories of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance. This measure, as stated in the press service of the North Atlantic military bloc, was introduced after the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Federation in 2014. One of the goals of the program is to contain "possible Russian aggression against NATO members."

    The Ministry of Defense of Belarus explains where everything is going. That is why all these gestures of Poland.
    The Defense Minister of Belarus said that 18 American F-16 fighters are ready to take off from airfields in Poland in order to overthrow President Lukashenko.

    Viktor Khrenin said this at a meeting with the participation of the head of state. The military leader's report was shown on the air of the Belarus-1 TV channel.

    Khrenin noted that a difficult situation may develop in the western regions of the country, where the population is exposed to propaganda that speaks of "ethnic and cultural belonging to one of our closest neighbors."

    According to him, "destructive forces supervised by the special services of Western countries" can penetrate into Belarus "by infiltrating through the western border." At the same time, the West will operate with the concept of "genocide of one's own people" and will resort to military intervention.

    Of course, I am not an expert, but "interaction" is, by definition, two-sided. What if AWACS can load "additional" into the firmware? ;)
