    Like in a German film about partners. One is from above, the other is from below. And it's clear what compatibility.

    - NATO rocket firing will take place in Estonia from 1 to 10 September.
    - And that's all?
    - Oh yes, MLRS and HIMARS will be retrofitted with air brakes. They will fly by the 10th.

      Well, a maximum of 3 days. The rest of the time buzzing in bars and squeezing girls?
      I remember myself for the same 3 days the landfill was plowed up and on the last case we had time to go to the village.

    It would be necessary to pull up the Pantsir systems to the border with this territorial entity, called Estonia, in order to shoot down missiles in the event of an error or malicious intent by artillerymen from the United States, when they fly towards Russia. And, of course, something like that, so that the artillerymen and local farmers would be responsible for such "mistakes".

      We will not tell them how to walk on small things against the wind, they have more experience. For 10 days I think they will manage the hit.

    The idea is correct, only not in physics, but in photonics. Photonics besides physics intersects with chemistry. And yes, his Nobel Prize is not for the honestly crumpled theory of relativity.

    What difference does it make where they shoot? This is a demonstration of what the US is interested in and an offer to declare their interests. What are our national interests?

    For more than 30 years I went to the same place in a beautiful pine forest to pick mushrooms. And now there is a sign on the road that the passage is only with the permission of the Ministry of Defense ... NATO buzzwords.
