NATO is discussing a request to use AWACS in the fight against IS

35
NATO countries are discussing the Pentagon’s request for the use of radar detection aircraft (AWACS) in operations against the terrorist group IG, RIA News post France Presse.




“We can confirm that there was a request for specific support from NATO in the fight against the IG in the form of NATO AWACS aircraft,” a military source told the agency. “The request is being discussed by the Allies.”

According to the interlocutor, the head of the Pentagon Carter "sent letters to all countries participating in the international coalition led by the United States against the IG, about the need for additional support in the fight against terrorists."

"Including a letter was sent to NATO ... in order to start a discussion on ways of possible support from her," he added.

According to a diplomatic source, in the event of a positive decision, AWACS aircraft will be sent to the United States.

“There will be no direct participation of NATO in the coalition against the IG ... There will be no NATO AWACS planes over Iraq and Syria,” he said.

    For AWACS to work, Russia needs to remove the EW cap over that area. And why is AWACS there? What missiles to induce? Who, surely, are not Islamists who, by means of notes to the campaign (because they know that the entire broadcast is under surveillance) transmit information.

              Funny.
              If we need to use an AWACS aircraft, we simply use it, and we are already confronting our Western partners with a fait accompli.
              And if they need to use something, then they are forced to send a request and coordinate papers with their subordinates.
              Isn't this a crisis in the governance structure?

              For AWACS to work, Russia needs to remove the EW cap over that area.

              Not necessary. He can carry out reconnaissance without entering the territory of Syria. Most likely, for this they wanted to use it.
              And why is AWACS there? What missiles to induce?

              These planes can do a lot of things besides target designation for missiles.
              For example, vskidku, from the building there is a strong EM background, which indicates a lot of working electrical appliances. So, either it is a Chinese garment factory, or an arms production workshop.
              You can find the enemy headquarters by a signal from their radio station. You can monitor the radioactive background at the border (you never know what the IS thought up there), or monitor the release of chemicals from which chemical weapons can be made.
              In general, a useful airplane is when the enemy has nothing to resist.

            ..with, the AWACS will be guided by the Anglitskaya Intercontinental Ballistic Missile .. laughing .. Anglitsky Rear Admiral yesterday agreed:
            Rear Admiral of the British Navy John Will considers it acceptable to use the Trident ballistic missiles capable of carrying a nuclear charge at a maximum range of more than 11 thousand km against ISIS positions in Syria.
            According to Express, Wil believes that the preventive use of nuclear weapons will not allow the militants to get the so-called "dirty bomb" (the simplest version of radiological weapons).
            He also stressed that at the moment in service with the British Navy are four submarines of the Wangard type with ballistic missiles on board. According to him, Trident missiles can be used in the event of a coalition strike on militant positions.

        "The radio station is installed on the tank."

        Without AWAX, ISIS cannot be defeated.
        You do not.

        if translated into Russian. then the following will come out: The Pentagon requested (demanded to work out) the NATO countries for the opportunity to use AWACS to provide control over the flights of Russian aviation, to work out countermeasures against electronic warfare systems and timely warning of barmales.

      All the same, NATO is already too clumsy an organization - to make a decision it is necessary that "Pentagon chief Carter" sent letters to all countries participating in the international coalition led by the US against IS, about the need for additional support in the fight against terrorists. " And it’s not the leadership of the alliance itself that makes the decision, but the chief plowman from across the ocean asks everyone to participate ... And if one of this gigantic gathering doesn’t hang out in Syria, then he will in every way evade consent, which means making any military decision will be delayed!
      From this, on the whole, I think that even if NATO expands, it wants to — especially at the expense of countries such as Georgia, Moldova and even Ukraine — this will not only not increase the alliance’s potential, but I think it will, on the contrary, make it finally just a tool for talking about politicians who do not understand anything in military affairs! If it is able to fight this Babylonian congregation, it is only at the expense of the American GI, but America will never tear its ass on the European theater of war and especially enter the war with Russia! In this case, not only some marines will cry, but the entire Pentagon will sob ... I think that the real Western military understands how ridiculous they are with their sedentary NATO scarecrow, seeing before them an example of the highly mobile action of Russia in Syria today!

      You repeat nonsense that has been repeatedly refuted by current events. The Turks, without noticing the "electronic warfare cap", shot down our plane, the Israelis, without noticing the "electronic warfare cap", bombed Damascus, the Americans, without noticing the "electronic warfare cap," bombed the Syrian base "accidentally".

      Our analogue (A-50) is capable of detecting a column of armored vehicles that way from 200 tons, and operating a radar from an even greater distance, I think their device is capable of such.
      But in reality, their goals are definitely intelligence. Our Syrians will also shoot.

    And what, the Barmalei acquired aviation? As far as I understand, this system is mainly designed to monitor the air situation. Mattresses are very interested in what our VKS do, or are they preparing a new provocation?

    It seems (and obviously correct) that Washington (so that there are no "smart" amendments, I mean the administration and the State Department) and the Pentagon are two organizations that not only do not want to hear each other, but also try to harm their opponents whenever possible.

    Avaks have been flying in Turkish airspace for a long time, in Israel all the time, "balls" with radars are in Turkey and Greece and Cyprus and Israel. Probably the sky over Jordan is also controlled. Plus drones. NATO and Israel in that region see everything better than our Aerospace Forces, what else do they need ...?
