Military Review

Iranian drones flew over the American aircraft carrier and filmed the ship

69

Iran demonstrated its combat capabilities by showing drones flying over an American aircraft carrier, which were able to capture the ship without visible opposition from the enemy.


The Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has released startlingly accurate drone footage of an American aircraft carrier as it flew over the Persian Gulf.

- noted in the Iranian edition of PressTV.

As explained, this publication is intended to visually demonstrate the country's most recent achievements in the field of unmanned technologies. Apparently, the video was recorded in real time by a unit of four devices. It shows in detail the combat aircraft deployed on the aircraft carrier.

In parallel, the IRGC posted a video demonstrating a test flight of a kamikaze drone. In all likelihood, it is intended to show the American military the possibility of delivering an air strike from Iranian UAVs against the US Navy's naval groupings.

UAVs can be seen crashing into targets with surgical precision and smashing them to smithereens.

- indicated in the publication.

Meanwhile, the head of US Central Command, which oversees US troops stationed in the West Asia region, told the US Congress that Iranian drones have robbed the US Air Force of superiority. General Frank Mackenzie noted that Washington was discouraged by Iran's widespread use of small and medium-sized UAVs designed for reconnaissance and strike.

Until we can develop and implement the network capability of detecting and destroying UAVs, the advantage will remain with the attacker

- declared the general.

        They would have passed it on if the "kamikaze" fell on the deck of an aircraft carrier and it could have ended very badly for him, but they just "warned" that the Americans are not omnipotent

        Why is this:
        There, at the radar post and between the air defense observers, there was such a dialogue:
        - Hey Sam, get your z ... here!
        - And what?
        - Look: one of ours is obviously indulging in launching drones.
        - Exactly! - to see from the security who decided to have fun - boredom.
        - Yes, how interesting these drones come in - like during an attack.
        From the intercom: Hey guys! What is flickering there - something from above?
        - We do not know Sir, but clearly these are not Iranians - they do not have such technologies. So our admiral said that they have a Stone Age and everything that the Russians sold them - that's all they have.
        From the intercom: interrogate all the security crews - whose pranks are these!
        - Yes, sir!
        After 10 minutes: Oh shchet! It was all the same Iranians! I'll give you to the tribunal! Are you stoned in there?
        Two at the post: And why is he shouting so, well, they blew once and what?
        - Exactly - our commander is white, and in the same place - now the black guy can't even blow - it's racism!
        - Definitely !!!

          Yeah, yes, and not Iranian, and not that close. Something like Kitty Hawk is also not about anything.
          On October 17, 2000, two Su-24 and Su-27 combat aircraft from the 11th Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of Russia discovered the Kitty Hawk aircraft carrier and flew over it several times, at an altitude of about 60 m. on the move in the northern part of the Sea of ​​Japan, between the island of Hokkaido and the mainland coast of Russia. After the overflight, the Russian pilots sent the captured images to the aircraft carrier's website. The overflights were repeated on October 20 and November 9 [6].

          A month later, representatives of the US Department of Defense officially recognized the fact of overflying the aircraft carrier [6]. Russian media prefer the term “conditional destruction” [7] [8] [9]. On December 9, 2000, a letter from a US Air Force pilot was published on the Internet, who was a direct witness of those events: according to him, the sailors of the aircraft carrier did not even really have time to understand what had happened, and did not raise combat aircraft in time, sending only the EA- 6B Prowler [10].
          It was a wonderful time for the striped penguins. They thought that there was no aviation in Russia, but here they were from under the bed. True, the photos were not sent by the pilots, after all, the Su-24MR and the photos of all units and divisions of the 11th Air Force and Air Defense then hung. Well, with Iran, the same eggs are only a side view. laughing laughing laughing

            Our planes also flew not over, but next to the ship. There is a specific protocol for dealing with such situations. And the reaction of the deck officers on duty is another matter.

A stand with photos taken by the cameras of the Su-24MR aircraft hung in the corridor of the headquarters of the 83rd BAA for two months. Moreover, the Su-24MR made 2 calls, on the first, some of them, on the deck, got blurry faces, so they had to reshoot. laughing laughing laughing laughing

                  Indeed, all the shots are "above the deck, strictly in the center". And in the top picture, when transferring fuel, in general, a different case - Hornet is at the start, not Prowler. The lower one confirms the flight on a parallel course, next to the ship.

          And what, there is a reason? :)))
          Drones flew by. Before that, there were non-isolated cases when the Su-24 went to the American AB, and even earlier - the Tu-16, etc. And not like here, when the American AB was simply present in the area, but when the American AUS were practicing a covert approach to the line of attack on our territory.
          Where does this indicate the obsolescence of AB? :))))) I would, albeit with difficulty, understand your enthusiasm if the Americans practiced a surprise strike on Iran, and the Iranian Air Force and Navy would open the deployment of the Americans and catch them with "pants down", but this? :)))))

                Flew and flew happened more than once, here the main question is that they did not know that this drone was above them. At the current time, all air defense systems are outdated, an urgent need to modernize or create new ones. The United States knows about it and is doing it, ours is not clear.
                And the direction of drones and full-fledged UAVs is being developed. The Navy purchased a batch of kamikaze drones from Kayot Block 3, recently tested the launch of 1000 drones from the C-130, etc.

Belyaev's textbook, which my father used to study in the 1950s, was relevant when I was studying in the 1980s, and I am sure that it is possible to prepare for it and pass the exam in materials science today.

    The Persians are good fellows, it was necessary to troll the Yankees by driving one drone over the deck of an aircraft carrier, at a low altitude, and shoot its flight on video!

          I don’t know how the passenger Boeings were, but the C-130 transports in real life boarded an aircraft carrier and took off from it.

      + also arrange an "accidental" accident - the UAV fell down and did not explode (the grenade was not accidentally stuck in the fuse). There is no war - and there is work for the sappers on the deck. mockery.

    The head of the US Central Command, which oversees US troops stationed in the West Asia region, told the US Congress that Iranian drones have deprived the American air force of superiority.
    These are the times, the Americans admit that the Iranians have deprived them of something. What is it for? The American soldiers seem to have enough money, threats towards Iran are pouring in as if from a cornucopia. Maybe they have changed their minds to fight and decided to postpone it for "later"?

    Until we can develop and implement the network capability of detecting and destroying UAVs, the advantage will remain with the attackers.

    In this case, the question is: where does the money go to the striped warriors? After all, they are allocated unthinkable funds. fellow

      These are the times, UAVs have been used for more than 10 years, and they have not bothered to protect against them. Accustomed to fight with unrequited natives. Eat now, don't choke

    Flying over an aircraft carrier is cool, of course. But Iran perfectly understands what he is, and just as well understands what will happen to him in the event of a war with the States, and they don’t sit in the United States either, and they also know who is worth what. They can fly over aircraft carriers as much as they want, shoot down drones and so on, but they do not represent any of this as an answer to the murder of Suleimani, they
    they could not answer this equally.

      They have already answered, they overwhelmed a helicopter in Afghanistan together with an employee of the American service who took part in the elimination of the Iranian general.

        And this is an equivalent answer in your opinion? Let me remind you that Suleimani was the commander of the Al-Quds special forces, the most elite unit of the IRGC, and one of the most trusted representatives of Ayatollah. By influence in the country. he was in the top five for sure. And by the way, Iran itself stated that it shot down the helicopter? And the name of the American intelligence officer is already known? How to demonstratively show superiority and fly over the avian is so please, and how to demonstrate the answer to the murder of Suleimani in a demonstrative manner, so keep quiet. Moreover, we were disgraced by shooting down a civilian plane in the middle of the country. Minus as much as you like, this will not make Iran look more convincing, everyone understands perfectly well who and what he is.

        That's right, it was not the helicopter, but the Bombardier E-11A of the US Air Force, which serves as an air communications center, where among the dead CIA officers there was the same pepper who oversaw the operation to eliminate Soleimani.

    Ours would lay on the deck sunbathing and waved their hand for a greeting, or maybe a sign that is understandable mostly to the Americans.

    Iran demonstrated its combat capabilitiesshowing the flight of drones over an American aircraft carrier, which managed film the ship without visible opposition from the side of the enemy.


    Of course, I am for Iran with all my hands and feet, but ..
    "fighting" is not about "filming"
    And "opportunities" are not about "without opposition"
    What Iran has demonstrated is that states float without embarrassment .. because there is no military action ..
    Well, if it is carried out, then first you will need to be able to fly in / fly over .. then - not to photograph, but to make a shot / dump .. to hit ..
    And even after all this, "combat capabilities" will remain in question .. because the aircraft carrier is unlikely to immediately fail ..

    Threat ..
    I can also look at my neighbor through the window at night with binoculars .. especially if he does not mind himself and opens the curtain a little ..
    But yelling in the morning that I slept with his wife would not be true ..))
