Pentagon will deploy deck aircraft on the Incirlik base

28
The Pentagon will deploy several deck-mounted aircraft EA-6B Prowler Marine Corps in Turkey, which will take part in a military operation against the IG, reports RIA News message agency Sputnik.




"Prowler will provide umbrella protection for coalition aircraft and ground forces in the fight against the IG, carrying out radio interception and depriving the enemy of the ability to communicate," the agency quotes the statement of the US European Command.

The transfer of aircraft to the base of Incirlik is scheduled for September of this year.

Earlier it was reported that the Pentagon placed the B-52 bombers on the base of al-Udeid in Qatar.

Agency reference: “EA-6 Prowler is a carrier-based US Navy designed for electronic warfare and reconnaissance. The first flight took place 25 May 1968, and already in 1971, the aircraft entered service with the US Navy. The crew consists of four people - a pilot and three officers operating EW systems. ”

        The news isn’t the most pleasant, and shouting cheers with patriotism will not get off here, but we hope that our leadership accepts and understands the whole situation, I don’t even doubt that concrete steps to balance the balance have already been taken, just not every news can be immediately make a discussion.

          They can no longer fit the aircraft carrier. Conventional "terrestrial" aircraft are no longer enough. Well, the creeping occupation of Turkey is going on on the sly

          "Well, the news is not the most pleasant ..." This is for sure ..., and, I think, unfortunately - not the last.

        Exactly. Prauler aircraft electronic warfare. Though old as a gamma mammoth, modernization after a storm in the desert took place. Hedgehog it’s clear that the EW aircraft will work in the interests of electronic intelligence, and possibly counteract ours (although unlikely). But he can easily supply the barmalei with data from Avax and fresh interceptions.

        good This is precisely what follows from the deployment of EW aircraft. They are really preparing something muddy by the type of Turkish occupation of at least northern Syria with the destruction of Kurdish enclaves.

        Why didn’t the aircraft carrier fit?
        Such opposition of the Russian Aerospace Forces will be considered an act of war, then without waiting for an apology, compensation and punishment of the perpetrators from the Turks, it will be possible to stun not only on them, but on the base itself, as the Skuds flew to Pakistan from Aganistan for every Soviet plane shot down by them. .. Pakistan by the way was and is an American bloc ally and nothing.

    Here recently our sworn friends talked about plan "B", about MANPADS for "moderate" ...
    And why, without fuss and loud statements, just do not put the same old MANPADS to the Kurds ...
    Somewhere from Iraq or Libya, let's say Turkey for defense from the Air Force ...
    These MANPADS in a matter of hours will already be on the territory of the Ottomans. And after another hour, the United States both deployed and withdraw its air forces from there ...

      We did not "develop" such rules for conducting military conflicts, and I think we must use all the options acceptable to us to counter the spread of US influence.

        If MANPADS get to the Turkish Kurds, which is what Andrei K means, amers can be hit on takeoff and landing, not far from Incirlik base.

          Was our at least one plane shot down on takeoff or landing in Syria from MANPADS? And why not? What amerikos stinger sorry for this? I think that it’s not worthwhile to simplify everything so with such winding multi-paths. Here everything will immediately be clear FROM WHERE AND FOR WHEREOF, the answer will not keep itself waiting so long.

      The idea is good. You can simply find everything you need in a landfill in Egypt.
      We have already seen the birdhouse.
      There are more serious things than MANPADS. There are Kulibins in Syria too.

      No, well, up to 3km work after all. Maximum cobras to knock down or a gapeous ottoman on a falcon or phantom. And then, it would be good, in principle.

    To Americans, our S-400 in Syria is like a bone in the throat. We are ready to drive all electronic intelligence to Turkey in order to fulfill our selfish interests.

    It’s worthless from these promlers, our reb system is already there, which has covered all of Syria from radio reconnaissance, it will also be with promullers. They wouldn’t start to fall when all the electronics are covered ...
    The drones are already stumbling over our "umbrellas".

    Why did the proslers send it? And why from the ILC and not from the Air Force? They seem to have been sent to the reserve. Maybe where is the mistake, growlers flew?

    For every fireman, you for the future - before you answer, read the comment. I said the assumption about their accidental transfer to the territory of the Ottomans ... Do not distort.
    PSTX MANPADS do not know on Wikipedia.

    Something a mess for the fourth decade they have not succeeded ... Sadness ...
    To broaden your horizons - for fun, take an interest in the alignment of forces in Turkish Kurdistan ... hi Well, for fun ... request At the same time, be surprised that in Turkey there are cities under the complete control of the Kurds, where neither the army nor the police risk appearing.
    So well, it doesn’t work for the Turks to interfere with the land of the Kurds ... wassat

    What will these planes do, who will they bomb? ours are covered, there will be no Syrians either, Kurds, so we can supply "Strela". They create an additional target, well, they will aim our not 20, but 40 missiles. After all, all the same, all this is already entered in the goal cards, the only question is in quantity.

    This version of Prowler is designed for electronic reconnaissance and electronic warfare. It seems that the Americans are not so much interested in the "protective umbrella" as in the opportunity to "touch" our equipment in the radio-electronic range.

    EW aircraft versus IS? As the saying goes, tell this to the Marine Corps. Probably, the question of the Turkish invasion of Syria has matured.
