German fighters Eurofighter began to patrol the airspace of the Baltic States

39
The head of the German Air Force, Lieutenant-General Karl Mülner said that for the first time after the outbreak of the crisis in the territory of Ukraine, German Eurofighter fighters began to patrol the airspace of the Baltic States with full ammunition on board, reports "Military Industrial Courier".




Mulner emphasized that the armament of the German aviation "Is not a means of escalation," but is necessary for an adequate response to the actions of a potential adversary. According to him, full ammunition is also a means of "motivating the soldiers" who perform tasks in the sky over the Baltic.

There is no aircraft for armaments of the Baltic states that could effectively protect their airspace, therefore, since April 2014, they have been assisted by NATO aircraft based in Lithuania at Zokniai airfield, located five kilometers from Shaulyai. One more platform on which airplanes of the North Atlantic Alliance are located is the air base Emari.

    The Germans captured the airspace of the Baltic states. Once we went through this.

      When the Hindus on our Su30mki did their Eurofighter 12: 0, we realized what kind of fighter it was.

        You look at Discovery)))) How they position their crashing is the “Best in the World” .. but they didn’t forget to indicate that the front flaps are made of Russian titanium ... In addition, like blades for engines all over the world! .. And to talk all sorts of crap into the empty, these are not bags to carry.

          This is also yes, but, it seems, "Russian titanium" is mined in Ukraine. The main character is Firtash.

            I agree the Su-30MKI is superior to Eurofighter in maneuverability, but do not underestimate it! The latest modification of Eurofighter, in addition to the standard PGO, also has engines with OBT, which makes it even more dangerous at short range. Perhaps it does not reach our Su-30SM and Su-35S in terms of maneuverability, but it is very dangerous for older Su-27s and MiG-29s, surpassing them in several respects, including and the presence of radar with phased array and other innovations in avionics.

        The Hindus checked in particular their b / c in training battles against the Su-30 and Su-35.
        The praised AIM-120D, instead of 170, can be used with a maximum range of 120 km, when the R-77PD is from 200. In one gate. He sees the Evrika Su-35S radar of low visibility with ionized gas included in the battle from 70km, when the OEPS even sees Evra from 120ti, and the Irbis from 350ti (at altitudes, essno).

          You are confusing something, comrade, the AIM-120D range is just 180 km, although it has not yet been adopted. And the AIM-120C-7 is armed with a range of just 120 km.

          If I’m not mistaken, the R-77 has a range of about 100 km, no more.

          Apparently this is a joke.
          And so they could not, since they decommissioned the MiG-29 in 2004. And the identification signs and the "friend-or-foe" transponder sometimes help to figure out where your own and where against the Alien.

            Yes, in principle, everything about the “friend or foe” is understandable, but in close combat it is not easy.
            There was a time when this could be in reality.

            They got the type "from fire to fire"
            from the Russian "occupation" to NATO.
            The NATO will instruct there bases, missiles and draw a big target, will be parapet for Europe.

          I remember the Germans on their MiG-29 conducted exercises with the American F / A-18. Hornet pilots spoke well about MiGs, especially about their maneuverability! good

        Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered to sign an agreement on the creation of a Russian air base in Belarus. The relevant document was published on the official portal of legal information. 20.09.2015.

    So what's the matter? Some duty fighters were replaced by others. Nothing new in this. They have been doing this since the entry of the Pribaldons into NATO. Another thing is that more serious efforts should have been made to prevent this very entry - minus Russian diplomacy of those years.

      The Germans fly with full ammunition. Usually NATO planes fly with two missiles on duty there, but here you need to understand that they fly with missiles at all nodes of the suspension.

      They cannot, even if they really wanted to. They have Nazi symbols there, unless you prove that in a purely historical context, such as the scenery of a movie about those times, a sickly criminal article with real terms. And the cross in those days was not Teutonic, but a direct, Balkenkreuz.

    I understand that fear has big eyes, but if only the brains do not become smaller request
    Russian Baltic States and .... th is not needed! To have in the territory where you are hated fiercely because of your own stupidity and complexes - no, thank you. It’s better if they themselves cook in a cauldron of their own bowel movements and hatred. They all gave them to the USSR - in the end, we are also to blame for everything. So, one has to ask others to confirm their fears to guard the borders that no one is going to attack, and the other, for the sake of political correctness, within the framework of what is considered to be the only one (tobish of the EU) to protect these very borders, realizing that these are all children's games repeat
    Morality - let the children walk in the sandbox in their little world and do not interfere with adult uncles living on. only in minds you need to keep that the game is a game, but for impudence in the form of provocations it is sometimes possible to get a priest by the belt wink lol

    Especially at long distances. In general, it’s impossible to make out who is flying there, the target is visible on the radar, it is classified by the type of aircraft, if it does not whistle its own transponder, then the missile is captured and launched. In a nutshell, it’s like that.

      So, just offhand. To date, each “aircraft” has its own radar field and it is unique for each model of the aircraft, the reflection of which is impossible to confuse with anything (like that “techies” (generalized) managed), i.e. . a radar passport, which is stored in memory. And modern radars classify not just by type, but specifically give information about the target. And the transponder is just a light bulb for us! So nobody will ask V-2 for anything!
      But they don’t, not up to the "bulb", and therefore they howl like "victims" !!!!

    Mülner stressed that the armament of German aviation "is not a means for escalation," but is necessary for an adequate response to the actions of a potential adversary. According to him, full ammunition is also a means for “motivating soldiers” who perform tasks in the skies over the Baltic.

    Adolf Aloizovich also said that the German troops on our border are a guarantor from Polish terrorists and “not good God” is not for the war against the USSR. History goes in a circle. God forbid us to believe the "west." Watching and gaining strength is our motto.

    The interest in patrolling in the Baltic states is also explained by the fact that NATO has the ability to train pilots flying at extremely low altitudes. Residents are a little indignant, but no one pays any attention to them.

    Dear, why are you "soaring" Fly over the Baltics with full ammunition is fine, so "fucked up" so everything is fine, now their Air Force has the main concern not to run into "pi-lina", because this is an international scandal into their "tolerant "side.
    By the way: Tolerance is a purely medical term that defines the meaning (not the body's ability to distinguish foreign bodies from its own and, accordingly, not the ability to respond to the invasion of foreign bodies that destroy this body) is roughly the same though very rude.
