Independent: Breedlove called on the Pentagon to transfer U-2 aircraft to Europe

145
The commander-in-chief of NATO forces on the European continent, Philip Breedlove, said it was necessary to return U-2 spy planes to Europe to monitor Russia, reports RIA News message of the newspaper Independent.




The publication reminds that "U-2 was actively used by the US Air Force during the Cold War."

According to the commander, "airplanes can be a means of additional intelligence necessary to effectively counter the increased threat from Moscow."

Recall that in the fall of 2014 in NATO, it was decided to increase the military presence "on the eastern frontiers" of the North Atlantic bloc. This step was linked to the Ukrainian crisis.

Earlier, Russia's permanent representative to NATO, Alexander Grushko, said that “the new strategy of the European command of the US Armed Forces, where Russia is mentioned as the main security threat, does not meet either real security requirements or the needs of world development.”

Bridlava’s duties as commander-in-chief will be terminated this spring, and another American general, Curtis Scaparotti, will take his place.

    In my opinion, the "Russian threat" does not give General Breedlove peace and apparently he even dreams at night and he starts to go crazy.

      Perhaps Breedlove wants to take the helm and fly like Powers did. Americans do not teach the history of their armed forces. If we assume that he wants to get into Congress, then the "McCain path" is the very thing.

                    Well, and more about blondes
                    The Obama administration has helped fuel a civil war in Syria, under the guise of "helping Israel." It is reported by Wikileaks, publishing a letter to Hillary Clinton.

                    According to the source, the case F-2014-20439 under the number C05794498 is part of the mass publication on Wikileaks of all messages from the private server of Hillary Clinton during her tenure as Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.

                    “The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear potential is to provide assistance to the people of Syria to overthrow the current regime of Bashar al-Assad,” this is how one of Clinton’s letters begins. At that time, she acknowledged that negotiations with Iran would not prevent the Islamic Republic from enriching uranium, a key component for creating nuclear weapons.

                    “Negotiations to limit Iran’s nuclear program will not solve Israel’s security dilemma. Moreover, this will not prevent Iran from creating nuclear weapons and enriching uranium. At best, the negotiation process between the major world powers and Iran will only delay Israel’s decision on war. And this will only provoke a major conflict in the Middle East, ”Hillary Clinton said in a letter.

                    And for those who want to read the link to the end:

                    And what does it mean that she is not a fool? What claims to be the president of the USA? So vice versa. This whole pre-election race and the elections themselves are a fiction for the average man! Theater. (Hmm ... how it happened with NIK!) The US President is being put by other people. And they will not give a damn whether or smart. A fool is even better. A lot can be attributed to this. And a lot can be done with her hands. Type fooled, stepped, etc. Do you think Obama ... makes decisions himself? He wondered how much it was beneficial not to the people of the USA, but to the Anglo-Saxon clan.

        The United States faced the need for an “unbreakable” reconnaissance aircraft as a result of the failure of the “open skies” negotiations in the 1950s. In 1955, the first instance of Lockheed's new reconnaissance aircraft, Lockheed U-2, took to the air. It was considered invulnerable until May 2, 1, when during the next flight over the Soviet Union this plane was shot down by a ground-to-air missile. This was the last U-1960 flight over the USSR. It will be old. Until 2, U-2005 suffered accidents or equipment failure with the death of pilots 2 times. Now it will not fly, they will get it.

        You can assume anything, the first assumption from Asadullah that Breedlove is not military. This is sad, first of all, because idiots in general stars are capable of more idiocy than mediocre ones. The first person in the world's most powerful military bloc, does not understand or does not know that the concept of intelligence has changed, separation has shifted to other levels. It scares. The only hope that his next cry from the rostrum will be the need to return the battle cavalry, after which he will be quietly pricked and taken to the haloperidol valley of dreams.

        Incomprehensible irony. The project of such intelligence is old, the end of the seventies. No one is going to cross the border, just like, for example, no one will send AWACS to the front line.
        The Americans have a dozen or two of these aircraft, and more than 70% of the airframe resource reserve. Keeping 10 hours at 20 km is a very difficult engineering task. And apart from U-2 and our M-55, no one has solved it. The aircraft is equipped with a side-view radar and will keep the tactical depth under control around the clock.
        Is it justified now, hardly. But to overtake planes to Europe and start using them when the situation "heats up", it will be more difficult for us to live. Who will like it if all the "perturbations" are known?

          And the amers ran out of satellites? Can't they "be a means of additional intelligence"? Better to go even further, to launch balloons or balloons for exploration.

          The plane flies when it wants and where it wants (if the air defense is not opposed), the satellite flies in a specific orbit that does not change, and its appearance can be predicted to the nearest second. And about the airships - there are such:

          for optical reconnaissance, the satellite must have an orbit in the upper atmosphere, there will not be enough batteries for a day, you will not open solar panels, they will slow down and the satellite will fall that same day, only RITEG is expensive, but it only lasts for a month, and even and the limitation of the orbit view, cloudiness, literally seconds of flight over the zone of interest, a lot of questions about the productivity of satellites

    In general, there were hundreds of such flights during the Cold War, just specifically Powers became very resonant. And there were many departures towards the sea without returning to the base.

    what is so funny said Breedlove? no one says that U-2 will start jamming into the airspace of the Russian Federation. I somehow read that from a height of Everest, a review of 300 km opens. from a height of 29 km. How many can you look at? kilometers for 700? that means, if you put a modern surveillance camera on board the U-2, he will be able to view a range of 500-600 kilometers for sure. at the same time, the aircraft will be located in the airspace of countries adjacent to the Russian Federation. Which of them will not give permission to fly the aircraft in its airspace? Finns, Balts, Psheks and Ukrainians from their pants are ready to jump out for an extra US service, and even if it will be possible to harm Russia ....
    what is the superiority of aerial reconnaissance over space - this is its unpredictability. satellite orbits are known. open sky missions are mutual and for the flight of a NATO aircraft, Russia has the right to send its own. and they are again predictable, because they need a flight request and the interested party has the opportunity to hide their preparations. U-2 has no such drawbacks. you can let him in at any convenient time.

      Modern reconnaissance aircraft have a decent altitude. Chip U-2 was exactly in height. For its time.

      Reconnaissance satellites mainly fly at an altitude of 300-800 km. So it makes no sense to climb planes up.
