"In response to the concern of NATO member states in the Black Sea region" - the United States explained the delivery of the next Patriot air defense system to Romania

8

It became known that another Patriot anti-aircraft missile system was delivered to Romania. The first such system was installed by the American military on Romanian territory last fall. The official reason for the delivery of the additional complex by the American side is presented as follows: "In response to the concerns of NATO member states in the Black Sea region."


The reports say that the latest version of the air defense missile system, an upgraded version of the "Patriot" PAC-3 +, has been delivered to Romania. At the same time, it was stated that a total of seven Patriot air defense missile systems with 56 MIM-104E missiles and seven (or eight) AN / MPQ-65 radars will be delivered to Romanian territory.

Officially, the air defense systems are transferred to the Romanian armed forces, however, according to some reports, the management of these complexes is carried out under the supervision of American officers.

The real reason for the increase in the number of Patriot air defense systems in Romania is not at all related to the fact that some of the Black Sea NATO members are concerned about "the state of security in the region." The reason is that the United States needs to implement a plan to strengthen its military presence in the Black Sea region, as well as to “cover” its anti-missile defense facility in Deveselu, Romania, with air defense systems. Recall that this is one of two American missile defense positioning areas in Eastern Europe. The second is located in the Polish town of Redzikowo. Initially, the United States stated that these missile defense facilities were designed to "protect Europe from Iranian missiles." When Russia called on Washington to provide documentary evidence of this, the US offered to take their word for it.

    Well, it means that in the upcoming conflict Poland and Romania can be deleted from the list of existing ones. Themselves ran into, of their own free will.

      In any case, Romania actively claims to be excluded from the status of the countries of the Black Sea region)) there it will be very convenient to draw a demarcation line along the Danube)
      And statements in the style of "defending ourselves from Iran, so we put a barrier on the way from Russia") is in the style of a song about the sailor Zheleznyak) he went to Odessa, and went to Kherson)

    7 batteries are not too many. Taking into account the strike capabilities of the RF Armed Forces. Toys for low intensity conflicts. I believe it will only cause an increase in the number of forces and means for suppression.

    Interestingly, there are only two missile defense bases - Romania and Poland.
    As Oh Henry would say - "Soul Mates". România Mare and Polska od morza do morza.
    It was enough "conscience" not to mention the Gaza Strip, Iran or Yemen.

      So today they are the only ones that are so close to our borders.

    Well, in any case, we now know for sure the places of our preventive strikes, which is already a lot. He who is warned is armed! (C)
