"No border violations allowed": the Russian MiG-31 "intercepted" the American reconnaissance aircraft RC-135

A video of the "interception" of the US strategic reconnaissance aircraft RC-135 of the US Air Force over the Pacific Ocean has appeared on the Web. The video was posted on its official YouTube channel by the Ministry of Defense.


As stated in the explanation for the video, on April 10, 2021, Russian air control systems detected an air target approaching the Russian borders over the Pacific Ocean. A MiG-31 interceptor from the air defense forces of the Eastern Military District was raised to intercept.

The MiG-31 crew identified the aerial target as an American RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft heading towards the Russian border. After the discovery, the US intelligence officer changed course and moved in the opposite direction. The Russian fighter escorted the American plane over the Pacific Ocean, after which it returned to the home airfield.


It is emphasized that no violation of the Russian border was allowed.

The Ministry of Defense notes a significant increase in the number of flights of US reconnaissance aircraft and drones near the Russian borders. The Americans became especially active on the southern borders in the Crimea region. According to available information, an EP-3E Aries II electronic reconnaissance aircraft of the US Navy based on the P-3 Orion patrol aircraft was spotted in the peninsula region. It is not reported whether Russian planes have climbed to "intercept" the American.

      It sticks well to mattresses, if they just shipped two minuses for the question. Although it could be representatives of the ukroverrmacht, who are ready to tear their mother's mattresses - those are still "Ukrainians". They already have not even Ukraine, but ameryka "ponadus".

        And in their mouth three kilos of compote with dried fruits. I'm just really interested in how fast the MiG was going. And then, judging by the speed of overtaking, this is supersonic.

          Here, probably closer to the earthly - "pressed the pedal to the floor" that is, overtaking on afterburner. On supersonic with this mattress "scow" in parallel, as in the video, you will not be able to go, you can overtake anyone as standing.
          Maybe flyers are now professionally frowning, but I am not a pilot even once, and this maneuver across the course of the mattress is somehow understood.

            When the MiG-31 pilot "presses the pedal to the floor," all sorts of subsonic mattresses will not have time to hiccup. The difference in speed by 3-4 times is noticeable.

      What's so surprising about that? The MiG-31 has a cruising speed: subsonic - 950 km / h, and supersonic (cruising!) speed - and generally ok. 2500 km / h) !!! And about the maximum speed - it's better not to talk about it!

    Interception of an air target is the main method of combat operations of active air defense systems to destroy an air target that is evading and providing fire and jamming countermeasures. Air target (VTs) - an interception object, previously detected, identified and intended for destruction. Or you, dear editorial board, having taken this word in quotation marks, changed the meaning in it?

    "Kommunist navalnist" of course fired, so from an excess of zeal without thinking at all, because the Ministry of Defense is sitting with uncles who have brains. The wars were propagandized and pushed towards them always and everywhere. The information war is going on in all territories of the world. And they climbed to us, climb and will climb with hostile debris. It is useless to fight against this. To this you need to mentally and psychologically adapt. Doc, all people can be divided into tolerant of other people's opinions and intolerant of any objection. And now, sometimes, these irreconcilable ones have a feeling of their strength. It seems to them that they can shut their mouths to all their opponents.

    But, we both know that this is not so. Always the fastest, most technical, cold-blooded and cynical wins.

    It is not very clear, who can explain: why the scout turned around and did not continue the flight without crossing the Russian border; what will happen if, nevertheless, the airspace of the Russian Federation enters; Suppose that a reconnaissance agent crosses the border and is shot down, why can't this be done from the airspace or the ground of the Russian Federation, why fly to them?

      why the scout turned around and did not continue the flight without crossing the Russian border;
      The crew has a flight task, he must implement it, it looks like it was like this - to straighten out and detect-fix, record everything that happens around, until they find him and take some measures, I think they would try to violate the border or simulate this violation if they had the opportunity.

      why fly to them?

      The target is visible on the radars. Plus or minus in terms of speed, flight altitude and other parameters, you can determine what kind of target it is, and as a rule, air defense personnel know in advance who is flying there and where, and even from which base they climbed. But to confirm that this is a scout and not a "lost" Boeing, or God forbid, the strategist and raise to intercept.

      And what will it be like for you if on the track some "psycho" suddenly becomes attached to you, starts to "cut", "grind" closely and in general is clearly "rude", showing that your presence in this place and at this time is clearly UNWANTED ! Probably try to turn onto a side road in order to save your nerves and get rid of the annoying "fellow traveler"! Or do you think it is very pleasant to get into the wake of the plane that crosses the course? What a "pleasure"!

      1. He was in neutral airspace not far from the border, when crossing the state border, if he does not respond to the request, he can be shot down.
      2. He did not have a border crossing in his assignment, but intelligence gathering and he coped with the task, that's why he turned around.
      3. RC-135V / W Rivet Joint is a strategic reconnaissance aircraft designed to support all types of troops with the ability collection, analysis and dissemination of intelligence information at the scene in almost real time.
      The aircraft is a heavily modified C-135. Rivet Joint's modifications are primarily related to its on-board sensor suite, which allows the mission crew to detect, identify and identify location of signals across the entire electromagnetic spectrum. The mission team can then send the collected information in a variety of formats to a wide range of consumers using the extensive Rivet Joint communications package.
      The cabin can accommodate over 30 people, including the cockpit crew, electronic warfare officers, reconnaissance operators and in-flight service technicians.
      I hope you received comprehensive information.

    "No border violations allowed." Maybe it was necessary to somehow pretend to be asleep, and then land it at some nearest airfield. Gut everything you can there, send out a whole stave of protests. (Well, you can dream.)

      Oh, Alexander! Do you really think that they (Yankees) are like that fuckers? Powers' days are long gone (and there were precedents after him) ...
      Nope! Deep into the territory, they will not so easily stick! So - they will walk "along the edge", and if they do dive - then not far and not for long! And immediately - to tick into "neutral waters", out of harm's way!
      That's why interceptors are flying for escort, so that there is no temptation to "dive" into someone else's territory and tease the air defense ...

    Now they shout from every iron that the Yankees in the air have become a lot more impudent, sometimes they walk almost along the very edge of the neutral, and strive to enter our airspace at least a couple of hundred meters. Therefore, there are noticeably more of ours in the air in order to prevent such a provocation!

    Dear forum users! Question: if our aircraft used electronic warfare equipment to the RC-135 of the US Air Force over the Pacific Ocean, would it be considered a "Casus belli" ???
