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.

    Лишний факт, подтверждающий, что наши ВКС вызывают уважение у наших "заокеанских партнеров" и что они, своими действиями доказали, что с ними просто НЕОБХОДИМО считаться, что бы остаться целым.

      "тестирование"..)))ну ну...Боятся они нас все же!Помните как к Сирии раньше авианосцев и прочих нагнали , а наши ВМФ немногочисленные грудью встали типо "сперва нас уничтожте, а потом уж Сирию! Вот тогда еще США поняли , что нет уже России , как в 90=х..А после "Калибровки" , вообще "икота" напала на их генералов... laughing The main battle is yet to come ...

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

      Отбросьте, вредное в данном случае "Уря-я-я-а-А..."

      Задумайтесь,как случилось то,что боевые самолёты ВВС США,незаконно,и при этом преспокойно "бороздят" небо Сирии,а нам приходится с этим мириться,разыгрывая комедию с "учениями",реально по примеру незалежников, выдавая это за "перемогу" ?

        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.

          А оно нам надо? Чье это воздушное пространство: наше или сирийское? Вот пусть сирийцы и ставят им ультиматумы, посмотрел бы я, как они выгонять самолеты "коалиции" будут. Или вы рассчитываете на нашу авиацию? Т.е. вместо того чтобы бомбить объекты игил и прочей аль-нусры, наши летчики должны "гоняться" за истребителями США и компании? Глупо, не правда ли? Поэтому вместо пустых мечтаний надо заниматься реальными вещами: самолеты коалиции не перестанут летать в небе Сирии, хотя и снизили интенсивность вылетов, но соблюдать правила и координироваться с нами в области безопасности они обязаны - что мы и сделали. К тому же, пока в небе будут американские самолеты, меньше вероятность того, что у боевиков появятся стингеры и прочее современное ПВО

          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 Александр, я согласен по обоим пунктам. Я же говорю - нам приходится.Но коалиция пресловутая там находится всвязи с решением Совбеза ООН? Или по своему собственному усмотрению? Я не предлагаю начинать сбивать американские истребители. Просто хочется помечтать, что мы скажем -"Ша", и американцы тут же уйдут из зоны наших интересов.

      so long been in North Korea wassat After that, the Russian pilots Li Tsy Ching did not meet in direct contact with Amer aces, those Bedouins always donkeyed on donkeys and camels, and felt like arbiters of fate, etc. The world is very far from perfection and further development, and most of all are far from it Anglo-Saxons (I still do not understand the process of creating a state by redeeming the scalps of the indigenous population)

      Несмотря на визг из Белого дома и даже заявления НАТОвских шишек, военные на местах "продавили" этот нормальный шаг.

      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 ...

    And this desire is based on the Force, which can no longer be ignored.

    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.

      Не присуще нынешней европейской и прочей западной правящей ментальности понятие "гордость". То, что кажется гордостью, скорее - пренебрежение сильного по отношению к слабому.
      А "наступление на собственную гордость" - не более, чем прагматизм.
      Now they can no longer afford to neglect us, because felt the power.

    I’m ready to argue that in 50 years American history books will speak about the difficult situation of the Russian troops in Syria and the enchanting victory of the American troops after intervening in the situation.
    But in the Ponadus 404 it seems like sho they killed all of them with a clique of a Banderade pride igil bidet and the whole hell surrendered.

    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

    В самом начале американцы чуть ли о применении оружия против наших самолётов говорили, потом отказались о совместных операциях, о совместных спасательных мероприятиях лётчиков, а теперь опукались и уже совместные тренировки проводят! Это хорошо, скоро и "умеренную оппозицию" сдадут!
