“A pair of Russian aircraft approached the distance of visibility to two coalition aircraft. There was a visual identification. Pilots behaved appropriately and continued to perform their tasks ",
An officer told reporters.

He did not specify the details of convergence, but noted that this was not an isolated case.

“It happened several times ... including with our drones,” said Warren. “It was two or three times.”

    Eye contact has occurred. So what? Did something terrible happen? Apparently American pilots are not taught contact combat.

        We (the USA) are in a state of "ideological war." In the eternal confrontation, so to speak, if you forget. This is our opponent.
        More than once intersected in the "third" territories.
        And the rhetoric of their military-political leadership does not have a desire to say hello.
        And the reaction of our pilots, most likely, was somewhat different - readiness for battle.
        If so far there is an agreement on mutual disregard, then this is by order and again “preservation of the face” at the expense of Russian diplomacy.
        And so, to keep the Yankees in a state of "tone of the anus", our pilots - a matter of honor. It is on these "goals" that they are trained.

        Eye contact has occurred. So what?

        Aircraft are not ships and cars, speeds are too high. Typically, visual contact occurs while the fighter is aiming at a target or at echelons along the corridors of transport aircraft. In any case, this process must be controlled from Earth. In any other case, this is an air battle or an imitation of an attack, accidental rapprochement is impossible.

          In this whole story, attention should be paid to this point. The Americans were ordered: upon detection of the presence of Russian aircraft - to leave. But since the eye contact took place, it turns out that the American detection systems were unable to fix our aircraft in advance. Can you take them with your bare hands?

      I already vaguely remember. Somewhere in April 1945, two Allied Mustangs (USA) met our fighter in the sky. I do not know what the amers had in their head, but they decided to attack. The battle lasted several minutes. Of the three aircraft, only one returned home. Naturally ours. The pilot’s name was Ivan Kozhedub.

        There were a lot of such cases, just with the participation of Ivan Nikitich the most famous. And so more than once, "allies" were marked by blows to our columns and attacks in the air.

    Actually, you need to ask the Americans why this happened. They are forbidden to approach Russian planes, where are their vaunted radars that everyone sees over hundreds of kilometers? Nobody forbade ours, so they indulge in it. The Americans constantly lose them along the way, and from this they come to resemble situations.

    Somehow it doesn’t turn out consistently. Russia said it was located at the invitation of the legitimate government, Syria. And any groups of people with weapons in their hands that do not belong to the Syrian army and their allies are bandits and will be destroyed. Then why the military planes of the countries located in the airspace of Syria, without Assad’s permission, do not go down?
