Russian MiG-31 "intercepted" American reconnaissance RC-135 in the Chukotka region

25

The US Air Force is increasing the number of reconnaissance flights to Russian borders, including in the Far East. According to the National Center for Defense Control, another attempt to conduct reconnaissance near Chukotka was stopped by the Russian MiG-31.


The US Air Force sent an RC-135 reconnaissance aircraft to the Chukchi Sea area, which was detected by air control. To identify the target and prevent violations of the state border, a MiG-31 interceptor from the air defense forces of the Pacific fleet.

The Russian fighter "intercepted" an American reconnaissance aircraft over the water area of ​​the Chukchi Sea, identified it as RC-135 and, after the American's turn, escorted him. Violation of the state border was not allowed, the MiG-31 returned to the airfield.

As previously explained by military experts, flights of reconnaissance aircraft are aimed primarily at pinpointing air defense points covering a particular area. All detected assets are added to an interactive map, which as a whole displays the air defense system of a potential adversary, in this case, Russia. Therefore, the task of Russian interceptors is to prevent reconnaissance assets from approaching a minimum distance to conduct a more thorough scan.

However, even in the event of an "early interception," the mission of the US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft is considered complete, since it allows the Russian interception forces to react in a given area to be calculated. Therefore, the flights of the American aviation they will not stop at the Russian borders, as well as the Russian ones at the American ones.

      Why publish a routine in the news section? So you can present the campaign of the construction battalion company to the bathhouse as news! smile

        Alexander, if the campaign of the construction battalion company is published in the "History" section, this is one thing, but if in the "News" section, it will mean that the construction battalion has been restored.
        By the way, my five-story Khrushchev was built by construction battalions. wink

          Vyacheslav, the construction battalion (which does not exist now) is the Spetsstroy of Russia, half of my city was built by Shimanovsk, and I live in a house that the guys from the "lethal troops" built

        And interceptions are not routine ... they probably happen 10 times more often than the flights of the starship))) G - logic.

      VO admins still ignore Starship landing. For that, the usual interception, of which occurs 100 times a year, will be posted in the forefront.

      As if the site is called "Military Review" here already, and so half of the content has little to do with military topics)))

    So they will fly. And ours are near them. It's a pity, there is nothing powerful electromagnetic that can be hung under the MiG-31 and fry the "scout" electronics.

        I will reveal a secret for you. There is no absolute protection. And the scout has a bunch of antennas. And all at the reception. There are fuses in the circuits. But they will have to be changed. tongue

              EMP is a NUCLEAR explosion simulator. Broadband low frequency interference. Far from everything that is in the arsenal of electronic warfare.

      Well, why not? There is and is most likely already suspended. It only remains to wait until they cross the state border. Most likely, in this case, they will fry.
      Here recently about the Americans it was that "the pilots feel uncomfortable" rising to intercept ours. And ours somehow do not whine, they intercept as expected. soldier

      Well, you turned it down, my friend! And your own electronics will not be "fried"? Do not forget that the intensity of the electromagnetic field decreases in inverse proportion to the cube of the distance to the source! recourse

    It is not very pleasant when such a MIG 135 with full ammunition under the wings approaches the RC-31 wing. I hope they showed the "Flag"!

    Russian MiG-31 "intercepted" American reconnaissance RC-135 in the Chukotka region
    ... Both are trained.
    And so, the closest distance between states / opponents is there.
    Places, however, are the wildest, sparsely populated, well, it really is.

      Victor prYuvet! so Yes! But, as far as I know, ours fly there as strategists, and they are scouts. Turns out that? They are preparing, and we are ready.

        Hi soldier
        They fly, sniff ... but it's more to ride on the nerves than to learn something important, strategic information. We don't have something there that they don't know about yet. And they have nothing of the kind there either. Everything is hidden in the depths of the territory, which cannot be seen from afar.
        And so, if you look at what keeps the balance of forces, interests, WORLD, in the end.
        On the forces of vigorous containment !!! And this is not there.
        The flights of our strategists are an additional factor, a mobile reserve, a reminder, especially for those who are zealous that they cannot touch us !!!
        Such a game goes on, won in which, it is not provided for anyone.

    Problem number ...
    US Air Force reconnaissance aircraft fly near Russian borders, as this allows for the timing of the response of Russian interception forces in a specific area. Therefore, the flights of American aircraft near the Russian borders will not stop.
    Question:
    What needs to be done so that American strategists calculate the missile speed of Russian air defense systems, and will American pilots then be able to take a break from flying?

    Oh, how the Americans are drawn to Chukotka, they have already stopped eating. So I want to know what new things the Russians have in these parts and how the air defense works, that the frequency of reconnaissance flights is only growing. Interest in the Arctic, SVP is only growing and the Americans have declared their priority in this region.

    Nevertheless, the MiG-31, created back in the USSR, now works for Russia .. A unique interceptor, created specifically for the vast expanses of our country.
    Chases adversaries and does not let them become impudent.! Low bow to Soviet designers. hi
