Russian MiG-31 "intercepted" an American reconnaissance aircraft RC-135 in the Kamchatka region

20

The United States, while building up its forces on European territory near the Russian borders, does not forget about the Far East. As noted by the Ministry of Defense, recently in this region, the intelligence activity of the US Air Force has increased.


A video of the Russian long-range interceptor MiG-31 intercepting an American reconnaissance aircraft RC-135 in the Kamchatka Peninsula has appeared on the Web. The video appeared on the YouTube channel of TK "Zvezda".

According to the Ministry of Defense, on April 16, ground control devices detected an air target approaching the Russian borders. For identification and "interception," a MiG-31 interceptor from the air defense on duty in Kamchatka was raised, which detected a US Air Force RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft moving towards the Russian border.


After the discovery, the American plane headed in the opposite direction, and the crew of the MiG-31, accompanying him and making sure that he was following the course, returned to the home airfield. There was no violation of the border.

It is noted that last week an American RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft was spotted over the Pacific Ocean, moving towards the Russian borders. Thus, the Americans are checking the operation of the Russian air defense system, timing the time from detection to the appearance of Russian interceptors in various areas, as if "probing" the defense.

In just this week, forty-three aircraft and fifteen reconnaissance drones from NATO countries have been discovered near the Russian borders. Twice the air defense forces on duty lifted fighters into the air, "intercepting" too impudent scouts.

      This adversary will clash in the sea, and the Americans will scream like they shot down ...

      Once in any case, they will scream, you have to shoot them down.

      In general, is it really possible to put some kind of acoustic "scarecrow" on our plane to put their brains in place, so that this scarecrow makes terrible sounds in a narrow range, when our plane approaches such an air provocator? ??

    And why staff members yell "Russia is building up its strength!" if they themselves climb into the "Russian garden". At least they had some kind of decency.

    The look of an amateur - why not allow entry into the airspace of the Russian Federation and shoot down there, so to speak, watch over and click painfully on the nose? recourse

      Fools are dumb. They will not climb, even if no one flies out to intercept. Know what it smells like.

      Well, they are not that stupid enough to cross the border.

    this week was discovered near the Russian border forty three aircraft and fifteen drones of NATO countries conducting reconnaissance
    And this is just a week. Isn't it a bit too much, Mr. Americans, with your constant groaning that Russia is somewhere, is concentrating something and threatening Europe? If we threaten Europe, then why are you getting into our Far East?

    They will not climb. so to fray your nerves, nothing more.
    There are mistakes, of course, but on purpose neither, nor.

    We also need to fly along the USA. Place recon planes in Cuba and fly along the east coast.

      The intestines of the Russian authorities are thin (they are justified for the movement of troops across their territory), and the money required for such a fascinating movement is all in American banks

    Yes, like the other day, if not this, then absolutely the same video was discussed ... But in general, it is a pity that they were "intercepted" and not shot down.

    Nobody forbids anyone to fly over neutral waters. Close to any borders. This is not an interception, this is an escort. Start your hang glider and go monitor the US border. Moreover, between the lands of the United States and Russia 4.5 km. Soon we will be writing about the Eskimo who pissed into the Pacific Ocean as a terrible attacker.
