Hungarian Air Force launched a Baltic air patrol

50
Hungarian pilots took over the 4-month duty to patrol the airspace of the Baltic countries, reports MIC with reference to tass. The mission transfer ceremony took place at the Lithuanian air base Zokniai.




“Hungary’s decision to participate (in the so-called air police) is another demonstration of the unity and solidarity of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance,” said Lithuanian Defense Minister Juozas Olekas. - We are pleased to see the Hungarian contingent in Lithuania. We have productive and diverse ties with the military in this country. ”

Patrols will take place on the 4-x fighter JAS-39 Gripen. The Hungarians changed the doubled patrol, which included pilots from Norway and Italy.

“The Baltic countries do not have the necessary aviation to control your airspace. Since 2004, it has been provided, replaced every four months, by their NATO partners. Until last spring, aircraft were based only in Lithuania. Since April 2014, NATO aircraft have also been deployed in Estonia at Emari’s base, ”the newspaper explains.

From 2010, Riga, Vilnius and Tallinn pay, on a parity basis, the living expenses of the detached air force contingent from NATO countries. In addition, they pay for the transportation of staff and necessary equipment. All together - this is about € 15 million per year.

    Mission transfer ceremony


    Some kind of circus. NATO and the Americans are trying to make a show of everything

    is another demonstration of the unity and solidarity of the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance


    Unity and solidarity? Where did they go when it came to illegal immigrants from Africa and the Middle East. Could chip in and help Greece and the same Hungary, the first to accept the invasion.

          The JAS-39 Gripen is a modern European incarnation of what the MiG-21 used to be ...
          MiG-21, say ... maybe so, only here is the opinion of the Hungarian officer who flew both on these and on these. Lies probably lieutenant colonel?
          "Military Parity." The commander of the Hungarian fighter contingent Gripen in the Lion Effort exercises, Lt. Col. Csaba Ugrik, at the beginning of his career, flew the MiG-21 and MiG-29, then he retrained on the Hungarian Air Force Gripen. Here he gives a personal idea of ​​some of the changes that have occurred with the development of Gripen.
          “The old MiG-21 and MiG-29 aircraft are difficult to compare with the Gripen.” Battle tactics are very different. MiG-21 had limited capabilities. The flight lasts only 40-50 minutes, and then you land. You can fly more time on the MiG-29 because it has more fuel, but it should still operate close to the base. "Gripen" is equipped with a system of refueling in the air, has a large fuel supply and it is possible to confidently fly on it far from the front line. "
          “On the MiG-21 and MiG-29 aircraft control occupies 80 percent of the workload, and only 20 percent remains on tactics. We flew without the new equipment that we have now (situational awareness), the assessment of the tactical situation was largely dependent on the intuition of the pilots. At Gripen, if you have good training in the MSS (mission support system) and can complete the task on the simulator, then only 10 percent of the workload will be spent on piloting, giving you 90% of the time to complete the mission. With the Link 16 tactical information exchange line, you have a high degree of situational awareness, and there was very little such possibility on the MiG-21 and MiG-29. All this fundamentally changes tactics. ”
          To take full advantage of these opportunities, the newly recruited Hungarian pilots from the very beginning are trained according to the NATO methodology. Students complete the entire training course at the NATO Flying Training Center in Canada, including stage IV tactical training. After that, they leave for Sweden at the Såtenäs airbase for retraining on the Gripen C / D in the F7 fighter wing, which takes 10-11 weeks. Then they return to Hungary to continue tactical training on the Gripen.

              but it’s not that he’s lying, it’s just a moment29 among the Hungarians of the times of the USSR with the corresponding avionics and of course without the option of additional adjustment. Of course, they also have weapons systems of the same times, at best with partial adaptation to NATO standards (I don’t know for sure whether the Hungarians did such work or not). Of course, there are difficulties with ground-based equipment (ignorance and guidance), of course, there are With the same success you can compare the T72 from Hussein and the modernized T72 B3, the latter is not a standard, but is in a completely different weight category.

                On December 28, 2010, the 22 MiG-29B and 6 MiG-29UB were officially withdrawn from service with the Hungarian Air Force. Now they fly on Gripeny (12 combat Saab JAS 39C, 2 combat training Saab JAS 39D). In Europe, the MiG-29 remains in operation in the air forces of Bulgaria, Poland, Slovakia, Serbia. The Poles are actively upgrading their MiG-29 to NATO standards and also want to tackle the repair and modernization of the Bulgarian MiGs. In Slovakia and Serbia, not all of the remaining MiGs are combat-ready.

        In this respect, Liechtenstein is recalled. During his Second World War, his prince fled to Switzerland and led the defense of neutral Liechtenstein from there. He is still considered the national Liechtenstein hero for the fact that he (attention!) managed to prevent the Nazi occupation of the country. I have a subjective opinion that the Germans, passing from Austria to Switzerland (there is one road, 9 km), simply did not notice it (maybe the pointer was blown away by the wind). Otherwise, these two and a half alpine villages would certainly occupy. laughing

    At all times in all countries, the continued presence of a foreign military in the sovereign state was called occupation. The Baltic states are front-line states. This status implies that if a war begins, these countries will become a battlefield. And no matter who unleashes this war. But there are no safe places on the battlefield ... the USSR built ports, factories, ships in the Baltic states, besides zappelins with herring, they had nothing sweeter, they cannot understand that it is more profitable for them to be friends with a neighbor than with an overseas provocateur. They will spoil the already small territories with military bases, make them a testing ground for confrontation with Russia, but they will not give money and wealth, all the Baltic states in Europe will have to take out pots for their mistresses.
