Combat aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces and the PLA Air Force entered the air defense identification zone of South Korea

Russian and Chinese combat aircraft entered the so-called "air defense identification zone" of South Korea, reports news Yonhap agency with reference to the Committee of Chiefs of Staff of the Armed Forces of the Republic of Korea.


Seoul accused Russian and Chinese warplanes of entering the republic's air defense identification zone without prior notice. According to the data provided by the South Korean military, we are talking about two H-6 bombers of the PLA Air Force and four Tu-95 strategic missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces, which were accompanied by two Su-35 multi-role fighters. Moreover, the Chinese entered the above zone three times. However, the airspace of South Korea was not violated.

According to information received from the Committee of Chiefs of Staff, first two Chinese H-6 bombers entered the South Korean zone 126 km northwest of the island of Io, stayed in it for about 25 minutes, then left, but reappeared within half an hour northeast of Pohang city, leaving after 23 minutes.

The anxiety for Seoul did not end there, because after about five hours not only Chinese planes appeared in the zone, but also Russian ones, which entered it 200 km northeast of the island of Ulleungdo. A pair of H-6 bombers, four Russian Tu-95 strategists and two Su-35s stayed in the air defense identification zone for about 18 minutes, then went further along the route. The command of the South Korean Air Force took off fighters and prepared to repel a possible air attack.

Judging by the reports received, the Russian Aerospace Forces and the PLA Air Force conducted another joint patrol in the Sea of ​​Japan area. In the near future, confirmation from the Russian Ministry of Defense should follow.

By the way, Russia does not recognize the so-called South Korean air defense identification zone, since this zone is not provided for by international rules and was created by Seoul independently. However, South Korea, with enviable persistence, continues to accuse Russia and China of violating this zone, it may even burst into a note of protest on this matter, this has already happened.

    With all due respect, we now have not only joint patrolling, but also a full-fledged military alliance.

      A full-fledged military alliance between the Russian Federation and the PRC, which legally obliges the parties to provide military assistance to each other, is currently unlikely: they are revisionists (well, don’t bring comrade Zyuganov to power for this), the PRC, with an essentially capitalist economy, has not retreated from the previous ideology
      2. China has a huge volume of trade with the United States and too close cooperation with the Russian Federation may affect this ..

    The United States and South Korea conduct regular large joint exercises in the DPRK identification zone.

    Probably still Tu-95MS, not Tu-95.

    Russia does not recognize the so-called South Korean air defense identification zone, since this zone is not provided for by international rules and was created by Seoul independently
    Apparently, the perimeter of this zone is limited by the range of Korean air defense radars? Based on this, the "identification zone" of Russia, given the presence of over-the-horizon radars, will probably be very large. But seriously, the historical enemy for Korea (both), as well as for China and Russia, is Japan.

    What's the news about? "To the identification zone" ... And if the radar of the air defense of the South Koreans will be more powerful if they finish off to Kaliningrad? What, and then our planes will enter their "identification zone"? laughing Nonsense, not a note!

    What to get excited about? They consider it their zone, defend, let your flyers intercept, fire missiles at the course. Weak? Ask the Britons (sailors and flyers), they won't let you lie.

    about five hours later, not only Chinese planes appeared in the zone, but also Russian ones,
    And here the southern ones got a little sick, and the locator screens flickered in a new way. Interestingly, did you manage to consult with the "hegemon", what else to do except how to raise your planes and ask for help?
    this zone is not provided for by international rules and was created by Seoul independently
    This means that they have to solve their problems on their own. And China and Russia put it on this one and calmly carry out their tasks.

    They came up with "identification zones" for themselves, not recognized by anyone, legally this is international airspace with flight rules long developed by ICAO in it, so identify if something and somewhere itches .. Surely there is a "friend or foe" system on the RK radar, Yes, and on YES aircraft, as a rule, there are transponders (another thing is that they are not always included). This does not threaten Korea and Japan itself, in order for the DA aircraft of the Russian Federation and the PRC to strike these territories, it is not necessary to fly to them with free-fall bombs, it is enough to rise 3 km above the base airfield and launch the CD directly over it. I suppose that there are several goals for joint patrolling: 1. Opening the air defense systems of the Republic of Kazakhstan and Japan (including reserve radars and air defense systems) 2. Working out joint piloting, interaction and communications (one language barrier is worth it). 3. The development of new areas of combat use for more distant targets (such as American bases on all sorts of islands). 4. A kind of demonstration by the Russian Federation and China of their "flags" in the air and the depth of military cooperation between the two countries, as well as defiant non-recognition of the so-called. "identification zones. 4. Working out the joint use of each other's airfields (a new element for YES, although at joint exercises, "Army Games, etc., BTA and fighter aircraft have already flown to each other's airfields).

    I didn't really understand. Well, they entered the air defense identification zone, so what?
    They were identified, so what?
    Every day we have Americans and others come in and we identify them. And they us.
    What is the plot about?
