                    the photo shows that part of the wing is on the flight deck and the probability of damage or even complete destruction of several units of aircraft is quite possible, in addition, there are photographs of the passage through the channel of submarines (they naturally go to the surface) and getting from RPGs to the OVU (cabin) can completely deprive her of the ability to carry out combat missions

              Snipers SEALs knowingly eat their bread. In addition, during the passage of the canal, drones and helicopters fly over the squadron, scan the terrain, and if an emergency occurs, the militants will be destroyed by the special forces mobile group, or stupidly from the air.
