British AUG stepped up anti-submarine activity in the Eastern Mediterranean due to fears of Russian capture of fragments of the fallen F-35B

41

The British Aircraft Carrier Strike Group (AUG) has stepped up its anti-submarine activity in the Eastern Mediterranean. According to British media, several ships from the AUG, whose flagship is the aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth, are performing "important anti-submarine missions." Reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare began to appear over several areas of the eastern Mediterranean. aviation USA and UK.


This activity is associated with "preventing the activities of Russian submarines in the area of ​​the fall of the carrier-based fighter F-35B." Recall that the fighter fell into the Mediterranean Sea a few moments after it took off from the deck of the said aircraft carrier. At the same time, Britain announced that it was necessary to lift the fighter, since "there is a possibility that its fragments may fall into the hands of the Russians."

In Britain, they believe that Russian submarines can establish the exact coordinates of the location of what remains of a fighter that fell into the sea, after which some fragments may end up in Russia.

It is noteworthy that the Americans also joined in "preventing the F-35B fragments from falling into the hands of the Russians." Brigadier General of the US Army Simon Doran said that "it will be very bad if Russia receives parts of the plane that fell into the sea." According to him, this must be resisted.

In turn, General Tim Radford, Deputy Chief of the Allied Forces of NATO in Europe, promised that Britain and the Allies would be the first to lift the plane from the bottom:

I promise you that we will do it. Our task is to achieve the return of the aircraft. We will find out the exact reason for the fall and will not allow anyone to take over the technology.

At the same time, in addition to anti-submarine activity, Britain and the United States are not taking any specific measures to raise the aircraft. It can be assumed that the operation will be postponed at least until spring due to adverse weather conditions. But if so, then NATO ships will have to "guard" the area of ​​the plane's fall all this time and control the possible movements of its fragments due to underwater currents. After all, they scared themselves that the plane or its wreckage could be lifted by Russian military sailors.

        you understand, probably, that now more than one NATO submarine is circling in the area of ​​the plane crash
        and nevertheless think that it would be advisable to risk the unique Losharik for the sake of a dubious opportunity?

          But why risk it?) There is enough to turn around any ship under the Russian flag or the postscript will already be hysterical to the skies) What's funny, even if there is not a single ship in the region of a thousand miles, they will still find it) Especially a submarine) I am generally surprised that no one else heard strange signals there, which MAYBE belong to Russian underwater equestrian tankers)

                I think it's obvious
                you write that it is enough for any ship under the Russian flag to spin around, and the West will begin to thrash in hysterics.

                I write that hysteria does not in any way prevent the West from continuing its aggressive actions.
                on the contrary, it serves as a tool for winding up the Western public against Russia.

                therefore I claim that it is senseless and risky to send "Losharik" to the area of ​​the plane crash

                what exactly is not clear to you in my comments?

              It is enough to hide a couple of nuclear submarines of a special project from the GUGI base and a truncated, the nix is ​​guaranteed. I’m even wondering how they will raise the penguin from 1,5 km of depth! It is still necessary to find it, behind what rock it lies there.

      Taking into account the fact that their penguin stupidly fell off the deck, they are unlikely to be looking for it, knowing the place of the fall exactly up to meters. Most likely there is nothing corny to lift from such a depth now. Apparently they are urgently looking for options, how and what.

      it is quite possible that even after the successful completion of the operation (if it is technically possible) NATO will use the situation in order to squeeze the maximum benefit out of it.

      it is quite possible to leak misinformation into the media if this allows a) to aggravate relations b) to remove the parameters of interest to Russian submarines c) to work out emergency situations, etc.

      We got hydraulic oil from the Saber in Korea. That very pink AMG-10. And a rangefinder. The composition of the sealants came in handy. Strength rates were compared. .Liked the cockpit layout and visibility.
      And with this - well, there is something to see. It would not hurt. So its production is scattered all over the world. Surely they already know, if not everything, then a lot.

    "It will be very bad if Russia receives parts of the plane that crashed into the sea" ... this must be resisted
    Well, you only do what you resist, and in the intervals between confrontations you bomb someone. It will be very funny if, while the British and the Americans are looking out for the Russians under the water, the important parts of the crashed plane end up in China. In the meantime, guard, divert forces and spend funds.

    Meanwhile, very interesting details of the death of the British F-35 are revealed.

    Media: F-35 crashed trying to catch up with Russian Su-30

    The wreck took place between the coast of Cyprus and Egypt.
    A fifth-generation Western fighter F-35 crashed while trying to intercept a Russian Su-30.

    The airliner crash occurred between the coasts of Cyprus and Egypt.

    The conclusions about the loss of the fighter were made by experts after the British Ministry of Defense announced that the F-35 tried to interfere with the practice of attacks by Russian aircraft against the British aircraft carrier group led by HMS Queen Elizabeth.

    The Sohy edition writes that the F-35 of the British Air Force tried to catch up with the Su-30, which took off from the Khmeimim airbase in Syria, in order to control the situation in the region or to practice a strike on the ships of the British fleet.


    fHowever, during the flight of the F-35, technical problems occurred and the airliner crashed into the sea south of Cyprus.

    The British Minister of Defense indirectly confirmed this information, noting that a total of 30 attempts were made to intercept Russian aircraft during the return of NATO ships to Europe from the Pacific Ocean through the Mediterranean Sea.

    Journalists call this situation a “shame” for London.
