Pentagon confirmed joint training of US and Russian pilots in Syria


"It was about testing communications, in which for three minutes one American and one Russian aircraft took part," said a source.

“The goal was to check the safety protocols negotiated by Russia and the United States. The planes came close to 5 miles in Syria’s airspace, ”he added.

More details about the training of pilots correspondent RIA News told his own source in the US Department of Defense.

“Today around noon, Qatari time, a US military aircraft carried out scheduled testing of communications with a Russian military aircraft in accordance with the memorandum of understanding on flight safety, which was signed by both countries. The purpose of the test was to confirm the security protocols established in the memorandum, ”said the official.

“The test was carried out in the sky in the southern part of Central Syria and lasted about three minutes. This test is a precautionary measure, which is intended only to ensure that in the case of a meeting of the coalition plane and the Russian aircraft during the operations in Syria, the methods of communication established in the agreement worked. The test ensured that this method of communication was not used for the first time during an unplanned meeting, ”the source added.

    A superfluous fact confirming that our VKS command respect from our "overseas partners" and that they, by their actions, have proven that they simply MUST be reckoned with in order to remain whole.

      "testing" ..))) Well, well ... They are afraid of us all the same! Remember how the aircraft carriers and others were caught up to Syria before, and our navies, a few, stood up like "destroy us first, and then Syria! realized that Russia no longer exists, as in the 90s ... and after the "Calibration", in general "hiccups" attacked their generals ... laughing The main battle is yet to come ...

      I do not fully share your so rosy impression of what happened.

      Discard, harmful in this case "Urya-I-I-a-A ..."

      Think about how it happened that the US Air Force combat aircraft, illegally, and at the same time calmly "plow" the sky of Syria, and we have to put up with it, acting out a comedy with "exercises", really following the example of the Independent States, passing it off as a "change"?

        I agree. Instead of raising the question to the UN about the illegality of the military presence of other countries in Syria, except for those that are allowed by the legitimate government of a sovereign country, and instead of issuing an ultimatum so that they all leave the territory of Syria within 24 hours, we have to play good luck with them. There are not enough words.

          Do we need it? Whose airspace is this: ours or Syrian? Let the Syrians give them ultimatums, I should have seen how they would drive the planes of the "coalition" out. Or are you counting on our aviation? Those. instead of bombing the facilities of igils and other al-nusra, should our pilots "chase" US and company fighters? Silly, isn't it? Therefore, instead of empty dreams, we need to do real things: the coalition planes will not stop flying in the skies of Syria, although they have reduced the intensity of flights, but they are obliged to follow the rules and coordinate with us in the field of security - which we did. In addition, as long as there are American planes in the sky, it is less likely that the militants will have stingers and other modern air defense

          Will we put an ultimatum? Only the Syria can deliver an ultimatum on its territory, do not you think?
          And the second one. Well, let's say we set such an ultimatum, and they put on it - what will we do? Declare war on NATO?

            Like what? We will announce another ultimatum, since there are experience of Chinese warnings ...
            Strange, the manifestation of common sense causes such an ambiguous reaction ...
            Even during the Cold War, agreements existed to prevent incidents at sea and in the air ...
            Accordingly, when our scouts flew over American ships, their carrier-based fighter planes, taking off to intercept, behaved quite correctly and the pilots sometimes even exchanged short phrases ..
            Just professionals, unlike some computer heroes, know that both sides just do their job and are not inclined to wave their sabers in vain, because they are sitting in the cockpit of a combat aircraft, and not at the monitor ...
            And then we have some particularly zealous commentators, sitting on the couch and not on the plane in Syria, nevertheless were able to hear how the Americans hiccup with a fright .. lol

            hi Alexander, I agree on both points. I say - we have to. But the notorious coalition is there because of the decision of the UN Security Council? Or on your own? I am not suggesting that we start shooting down American fighters. I just want to dream that we will say "Sha", and the Americans will immediately leave the zone of our interests.

      - It is an extra fact that the military themselves are more sane than politicians in chairs.

      Despite the screeching from the White House and even the statements of NATO bigwigs, the military on the ground "pushed through" this normal step.

      The presence and work of the Russian aerospace forces is an objective reality. Trying to ignore them is akin to trying to ignore a concrete pillar standing in the way ...

    Well, finally, it’s been such a long time that Amers have been diminishing cooperation. And they were offering various plans and maps and explaining to them, and they, infection, didn’t know at all that Russia was not the USSR and it’s not worthy to get out of that crap will be able.

      The concept of "pride" is not inherent in the current European and other Western ruling mentality. What appears to be pride is rather the disregard of the strong in relation to the weak.
      And "attacking one's own pride" is nothing more than pragmatism.
      Now they can no longer afford to neglect us, because felt the power.

    The Americans live in an illusory world created by their own hands and when the fog dissipates, it turns out that the Russian Air Force can beat them, and here they have their brain switched on instantly - it’s better to agree. Moreover, they didn’t understand where they overslept the situation

    At the very beginning, the Americans almost talked about the use of weapons against our aircraft, then they abandoned joint operations, joint rescue measures for pilots, and now they got carried away and are already conducting joint training! This is good, soon the "moderate opposition" will be handed over!
