"Could collect intelligence": Japan lifted two fighters into the air to "intercept" the Russian Mi-8 near Hokkaido

40

The Japanese press, referring to the Japanese Self-Defense Forces, publishes a message stating that the Russian helicopter "has invaded Japanese airspace." The message says that after the appearance of the Mi-8 helicopter in the area of ​​the Siretoko Peninsula, an order was received to lift two Japanese Air Force fighters into the air.


From a post by the Jiji News Agency:

Fighters of the Japanese Self-Defense Forces flew urgently to intercept and eventually drove away a Russian helicopter that had invaded Japanese airspace. The Japanese Ministry of Defense has suggested that the helicopter could be used for intelligence gathering.

And the same news agency reports that there was a red cross on board the Russian helicopter, which refers it to the means of sanitary aviation.

The Japanese press reported that the Japanese Air Force fighters issued a warning to the Mi-8 crew, demanding that the aircraft leave the airspace in the area of ​​the Shiretoko Peninsula.

From the material:

The helicopter, which is suspected of collecting intelligence by the Japanese Ministry of Defense, was forced to leave Japanese airspace within minutes.

For reference: the Shiretoko Peninsula is part of the Japanese island of Hokkaido. It is only a few kilometers from the Russian island of Kunashir. At the same time, Tokyo and the island of Kunashir continue to be considered their own territory, referring to the so-called "northern territories".


How close the Russian helicopter approached the Shiretoko Peninsula is not reported by the Japanese Ministry of Defense.

          that's how much the "nokia 3310" allowed, so much fit, still looking for a place to unload 60 tanks, and three airborne divisions languishing on board.

              The Japanese Ministry of Defense suggested that this helicopter maybe used to collect intelligence.

      There are no more samurai. Everyone is in the past. At least a samurai, whose image was created in the European consciousness by Akiro Kurosawa, Toshiro Mifune ("The Red Sun" with A. Delon and C. Bronson - good !), Masaki Kobayashi. Those samurai would make themselves seppuku out of shame for the unnatural LGBT act that the US is doing with Japan.

    Now it is fashionable to intercept at least something, and the Japanese, apparently, were offended that they were intercepting everything, but they were still lagging behind the general trend.
    To intercept a train in the Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk area somehow would not be entirely correct, but here the turntable turned up from Kunashir, already something similar to an attempt at deep reconnaissance of the air defense system.

      Yes, let them take an example from the Swedes and Norwegians, they constantly see Russian submarines, but cannot find them. A win-win, you just declare that somewhere there is a terrible Russian submarine and that's it - the aggression is proven 100-500%.

    Aviators, is it really possible to "intercept" MI-8 on fighters? They will just wind gigantic circles around him, the speeds are too different.

      A practically low-speed target is attacked by an aircraft as a fixed ground target. The usual dive approach. After Rust this is taught constantly.

          Aircraft with OBT (deflected thrust vector) fly freely at speeds of about 200 km / h. Those. can go up to the helicopter and politely show him the bell with the missiles. Probably, this will be the invitation to leave. wink

            That's what I wanted to know, thank you) I just look at the list of available equipment of the Japanese Air Force and do not see anything suitable.

              Then all that remains is to rush past the helicopter in the hope that they will be scared. Or at least the fighter will be noticed.
