Ukrainian security forces monitor the Crimea with the help of western reconnaissance aircraft

At the disposal of the Ukrainian security forces there are Austrian aircraft - aerial reconnaissance aircraft Diamond Diamond DA42 MPP NG. Two pieces.


There was a third, but he crashed in Transcarpathia in 2012 year. On board the aircraft was a crew of three. All died. Each such aircraft cost the Ukrainian treasury, according to some sources, in 3,95 million dollars.

Military experts, in general, speak highly of this aircraft. It is made of carbon composite materials and due to its relatively small size it should have a low radar visibility. Although he is far from a real stealth plane, of course. In its civilian version, the DA-42 is usually used as an aerotaxi.


Two turbo diesel engines allow the MPP NG version of the aircraft to patrol for 13 hours for nautical miles for 1200 hours. True, the maximum speed of the aircraft is relatively small - about 350 km.h.

Aircraft literally crammed with modern Western electronics. So, in the front there is a gyro-stabilized camera with day and night thermal imaging channels. The resulting video is transmitted to the ground in HD in real time at a distance of 100 nautical miles.

In addition, a satellite channel can be used for broadcasting intelligence information.


According to military experts, this aircraft is very good for performing tasks in peacetime. However, it is absolutely impossible to use it in the military, as the crew, in fact, turns into a kamikaze, and the Ukrainian military has never purchased modern drones.

    even if they took an example from North Korea, they even thought up a drone to do this for these purposes

          This is a normal patrol aircraft, capable of hanging around in the air for a long time and monitoring, in fact, for that reason, it must have been purchased.
          Of course, it is possible to blame Ukraine for the absence of drones - but in our army they are essentially the same (we are talking about full-fledged, not the level of an ai-model) - as the shot down reconnaissance carcass in the war 8.8.8 clearly showed

            What do you think is easier to knock down, Tushka, or is this a misunderstanding? If the carcass was knocked down, then it is definitely knocked down by a "stone". Well, why do we need this air taxi for that kind of money?

      today laid out the conversation from the Crimea once again he will lay just the topic
      -2 days flew over us today he bothered us, we decided to bring down!
      - seriously tell me what they shot down?) it is important.
      -Kalash shot down
      -You show a picture of a polite person next to such a piece of iron on the ground. And then anyone can fly in the air.
      -A drone fell outside our guarded post, others took it
      Summary of the conversation!

    Aircraft purchased for border guards. For conducting patrol flights in PEACE time. In Odessa, we often see him in the air. An interesting machine that flies beautifully. It’s clear that it’s not for war. So ours doesn’t have anything for war, and there can’t be a war in such a situation http://lb.ua/news/2014/03/11/258880_tenyuh_rossiya_podtyanula_granitsam.html.

    Two turbo diesel engine allow the aircraft in the MPP NG version to patrol for 13 hours

    Is it possible to put diesel engines on aircraft ?? belay Usually aviation kerosene is used as if. Maybe this is some kind of know-how ... I don’t know.

      If sclerosis doesn’t fail me, there were diesels on the Soviet EP-2 bomber, M-40, it seems.
      In general, for today's Ukraine it would be more relevant on wood ... sad

    Crimean media report: “A US unmanned aerial vehicle sent for reconnaissance purposes was shot down in Crimea. An unmanned aerial vehicle in the sky above the Turkish post checkpoint tracked the positions of military personnel, a source from the environment of the Cossacks told Crimean News. Inconsistent equipment was noticed by the forces of self-defense and employees of the "Golden Eagle". Fire was fired at the facility to kill. ”

    We must, just in case, warn our "partners" - adversaries that in the event of crossing the air borders of Crimea, these planes will be shot down. And to be convincing, knock down a couple. There will be noise. But any noise is just damped vibrations. We will survive. And the "partners", perhaps, will move the gyrus.

    Yes, a serious reconnaissance ... with law enforcement agencies ...

    if you follow the logic of the article further, then the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine just has an armada of scouts, they all scout :)

    With all the mess in the Ukrainian army, I would not greatly underestimate itThere is a famous proverb: If you are weak, then seem strong, and if you are strong, appear weak.(literally I don’t remember exactly, but the meaning is this). I mean that the Ukrainian army does not shine,but it’s quite capable of minor dirty tricks and troubles with regard to Russia.And this is sometimes not much nicer than something else. Or as another quote: Small bug and smelly.
    I’m all about the fact that it’s better to overestimate the enemy than to underestimate and then bitterly regret request

    I would say everything very quickly and quietly:

    - self-defense without identification marks;
    - weapons, we have no idea;
    - BDK and the Marine Corps, we do not know;
    - protection of objects of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation, under an agreement of up to 25 or 30 thousand, but how much is real?
    - we do not know helicopters;
    - blocked the ed, in Donuzlav ... we also don’t know ...;
    - there were data "bastion" yet, but again there is no official information.

    Quietly calmly, adequately prepared ... And what about the border with Kharkov, Lugansk .... who knows in the Belgorod and Kursk forests? maybe hunters? maybe 5-10 divisions?

    so we learned something ... and the result is on the "face" ....

    An ordinary piston engine is difficult to make invisible. Yes, and our air defense on the border with Ukraine now, probably, are looking with all eyes.
