US troops fired from MLRS a few tens of kilometers from the Russian border

42

As part of the NATO military exercises Swift Response 2021, which are held several tens of kilometers from the Russian borders, live firing from multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) was carried out.


Such firing was carried out by servicemen of the 1st Battalion of the 77th Field Artillery Regiment of the US Army.

It is known that the US troops used the M270 MLRS MLRS on targets. These 227 mm mounts are distinguished by their versatility. In addition to rockets, they can be used for firing tactical missiles.


The launcher itself is located on a tracked chassis with a cruising range of up to 500 km. The salvo time is about 48 seconds.



At this stage, military personnel from the United States, Britain and Estonia itself are taking part in the exercises on the territory of Estonia. At the same time, it is reported that hundreds of British and American paratroopers will soon join the exercise. According to the latest information, paratroopers from the United States are preparing to be sent to Eastern Europe by transport aircraft from the Fort Bragg military base. They will be delivered to Estonia and Romania.

Journalists in the United States have questions about why military personnel are sent to Europe without medical masks. This question was answered by Captain Colin Kanzari of the 82nd US Airborne Division:

None of these military men need to wear a medical mask since they are all vaccinated.



It should be noted that the United States does not consider firing from MLRS and the transfer of hundreds of its paratroopers to the borders of Russia as something reprehensible. They always have a duty "explanation": "This is to support partners in case of aggression from Russia." When Russia conducts its exercises on its territory, it causes a violent reaction in Washington and NATO headquarters with a demand for a "withdrawal of troops." At the same time, the exercises of the RF Armed Forces in the West are necessarily associated with Russia's alleged desire to "conquer" someone.

    Well, they themselves allow themselves to conquer someone, but we do not. Competition is not tolerated.

      Well, the news can be presented in different ways. We can say that they do not climb to us, but act within the territory of Nata (and they will answer that if anything). And we can say that "NATO troops fired at the territory of Estonia with multiple launch rocket systems." I like this vision better wassat

    "This is to support partners in case of aggression from Russia."
    So far, "support" Eastern Europe from the ephemeral Russian aggression inside the country is a complete mess. The police are dispersed (fired) because of the Democrats' policy towards them, blacks are rampaging, whites are already showing open dissatisfaction with Biden and his shobla, communist ideas are reviving ... No matter how the support of partners ultimately results in the need to support their pants.

        They will not have a socialist revolution, there are no leaders, leaders, inspirers, there can only be a complete mess with the separation of states and the civil war of blacks and all kinds of rastas with sensible white people, the police do not know which side they will side with, like the army, despite the propaganda , mercenaries from Latin America and other countries do not treat the Rastas very well, in Latin America they sacredly honor the Catholic faith, they even honor them very much, and even with their pagan flavor

    And where is our violent reaction? Why not at least call their ambassador or whoever stayed there and demand an explanation? Why not transfer additional MLRS to the border with Estonia for the duration of these exercises? not to conduct civil defense exercises in the areas bordering with Estonia?

      It would be much more effective to conduct your own similar exercises. Quickly transfer "Smerchi" to the specified area and deliver a demonstrative "massive strike" so that the shells fall somewhere in a kilometer from the border with Estonia or Latvia. Somewhere opposite any NATO unit.

      Cowardice and fear of losing what they have acquired by back-breaking labor, that's what prevents at least frightening the enemy. From Leningrad to Kaliningrad, it would be great to fly there and back over the Baltic states every day while the exercises are underway. ?

    However, the firing range of this crap with individual ammunition is up to 300 km. From the center of Estonia to St. Petersburg is quite enough.

    Oh-oh-oh! And what should I do? Run to negotiate with NATO about peace, friendship, chewing gum? Or toss another Iskander in Kaliningrad? Or maybe it is worth "Sarmatom" at once according to "partners"?
    Or maybe dry crackers, matches, buy salt and sugar?
    What should I do? Tell me!
    Did you report these conclusions to the General Staff? They then go and do not know either the fact of the firing or the performance characteristics of the MLRS NATO members.

        And so what? Well they get it. What's next? They will launch in St. Petersburg, receive in Riga or Warsaw, or Brussels or ... wherever they have a decision-making center. Or do you think that the Russian Federation will only show concern?
        You finish talking. Although not necessary. And it's so clear.

    In response, it would be worthwhile to conduct live firing with Calibers from Kaliningrad at the nearest range. For example, in the Astrakhan region. At the same time, the rocket should fly over the Kaliningrad region along the perimeter.

    Perhaps this is frivolous self-confidence. Despite the fact that in the United States 65% of the population is vaccinated, has been ill or died from the coronavirus, in May 2021 it is infected there every day at least in 2020. Either the US vaccine does not protect against all the stamps of the coronavirus, or its duration is very limited.
