Defense News: German Tornadoes can't fly to Syria at night

95
Aircraft of the German Air Force Tornado, deployed in Syria for intelligence operations, can not fly at night, according to Look with reference to Defense News (DN).




The publication reminds that “six aircraft sent to Syria are equipped with surveillance equipment and were praised for their ability to take high-resolution photos and infrared images even in bad weather and at night.”

However, “night flights are impossible, as the pilots of the German Tornado are blinded by the too bright light from the lamp in the cockpit,” writes DN.

“There are minor technical problems with cabin lighting, - acknowledged the spokesman of the Ministry of Defense of Germany. - Perhaps the glasses that pilots wear at night are the reason for the glare. "

According to him, the military department “expects a solution to the problem within the next two weeks.”

A spokesman also noted that "currently in Syria, there is no need to fly at night."

“Missy deployment was done on 100 percent,” he added.

    it's about night bombers

    Now they were called not U-2, but Po-2, after the name of their creator N. N. Polikarpov. Aircraft differed from the old ones by the lightness of the glider, increased engine power. They installed real bomber equipment with an eye and a machine gun. The brightness of the lighting in the cabs was regulated by turning the rheostat. Flight and navigational instruments had scales with phosphoric glow. These were combat vehicles created taking into account the experience of war. (c) Bumblebees From low heights

              Most likely, this is an overly bright glow of the displays on the dashboard. They really affect the ability of the eye to discern something in the dark. And adaptation comes very slowly

        It’s a pity that Honneker didn’t finish any night with Germany. Really did not guess.
        East Germany is Prussia. And the Prussians are the coolest Germans. They would not be disturbed by bulbs in any war at any time of the day. When he was still a kid, the dad of one classmate from the GSVG returned. And he said that the GDR officers had been burned to the USSR because they had not been taken to Czechoslovakia in 1968, and that they had not agreed with the victorious powers on the joint withdrawal of their troops. They would deal with the Bavarians and other Swabians in the name of the unification of Germany.

      Terrorists in the Middle East fight exclusively during the day. Only on the street it begins to get dark, and you don’t see the militants right away - everyone runs up the minks and caves to get ready for bed.

      The point is that the "vaunted" military potential of NATO is more like a profanation.
      The fact that the A. measures cut loot on the repeatedly overestimated military budget is known. But Europe did not lag behind its master.
      Those. we don’t need to blindly imitate them, we need to review all the transactions concluded during the stool for the purchase of foreign equipment.
      As modern history has shown, NATO is already in "ecstasy" from the demonstration of the actions of Russian technology.
      We would also need to pull the economy to a level that can not only support the army, but also feed the people ...
      But, alas ..., the panicky fall of the ruble, the "stupidity" in the Twitter government, the president, confident that the peak of the crisis has already passed (and economists, both left and right, did not notice this), all this somehow does not inspire ...

    Of course, an interesting excuse is not to fly at night. However, you can excuse yourself and not fly at all ...

    For 30 years of aircraft operation, this "problem" has not been identified?
    Or never flew at night - "there was no need"?
    No, we don’t understand them ...

    Yeah, during this time, their pilots in the Tornado should fly blindfolded already, as if on a bike. A tornado that has never participated in battles? Yugoslavia, the first Iraq, or in English did they set the rheostat :)

    And what’s weak in the afternoon? The Fritz is getting smaller at the end, they are insulting masses of lototehen massively, and the chances of modern planes cannot, like their great-grandfathers on the Yu-88 or Me-110, stroll through the sky at night

    night flights are not possible, as the pilots of the German Tornado are blinded by too much light from the lamp in the cockpit

    Oh, they just found out about it? Where is Germany heading?

    "Nightlights" must be turned off! We got used to the conveniences in Germany. laughing

    One news is better than the other, the F-35 is constantly experiencing all sorts of problems, now the Germans can’t fly at night. What next? ...

    However, “night flights are impossible, as the pilots of the German Tornado are blinded by the too bright light from the lamp in the cockpit,” writes DN.

    What kind of lamp in the cabin, the brightness of which cannot be adjusted within
    min / off - max? In addition, "built-in lighting" has been used in aviation for a long time. Incl. with brightness control.
    I could believe that it is difficult to read information in bright sun, but in this case, means (curtains) of shading the cabin are also used.
    So the point is, most likely, in something else. And this - or "noodles" or nothing to write about.
