The Pentagon transferred two F-22 aircraft to Romania

34
The United States transferred two F-22 fighters and one tanker to Romania, which will be based on the Black Sea coast, reports Kommersant.




The official version of the transfer of aircraft - conducting joint exercises. However, the deputy head of the Duma defense committee Sergei Zhigarev regards such actions by Americans as a provocation.

“There is no aggression from Russia towards the allies of the United States and the NATO bloc and is not visible. Regarding the transfer of two aircraft, it seems to me that this is not quite adequate action of the United States in response to the passage of our "dry" by the ship "Donald Cook". In general, of course, this does not serve anything good, only exacerbates confrontation. We always respond adequately, unlike them, we are engaged in planning the rearmament of the Russian army. The closer the American missile defense system to our borders, the closer our poplars to their borders, ”said Zhigarev.

The transfer of planes to Romania is “an attempt by the United States to increase control in the region,” said political analyst Vladimir Bruter.

“A much more plausible version is a kind of demonstration of power in relation to Moldova. This means that if the development of events in Moldova goes in a direction that the United States does not like, they will be ready to react - and warn about it. All that concerns the Russian aggression and the Russian threat are just empty words, which in this case should in some way replace the real content of such landmark actions, ”said Bruter.

Transfer of equipment and weapons to Europe is first of all their presentation on the foreign market, says Alexander Perendzhiev, a member of the Association of Military Political Scientists.

“The United States of America, in the first place, implements its not so much a political project as an economic one, because it is a question of weapons production. The fact is that this weapon is made, and so that it is not in the warehouses, the anti-Russian campaign is being played out in order to show a different type of weapon. This is, you know, a veiled advertisement of American weapons, in order for it to find its demand in the global arms market, ”Perendzhiev said.

Earlier, the Pentagon asked lawmakers to allocate $ 2017 billion for military needs in 580 for most of the money should be used to strengthen the US defenses, and the remaining 60 billion - to conduct an operation abroad.

    “There is no aggression on the part of Russia against the allies of the United States and the NATO bloc and is not visible. As for the transfer of two planes, it seems to me that this is not an entirely adequate action by the United States in response to the passage of our "dryers" past the Donald Cook. "

    In how, once flew - 2 planes to Romania, flew once more - even a squadron to Ukraine ... let ours fly bigger - their planes will get closer closer. And it’s easier, cheaper and more efficient to hit against concentrated goals.

                The raptor is currently the most peaceful fighter, because of the pricey price, he did not participate in any conflict!

      And also, it would be nice to touch them (F-22) with radars to capture their electronic images, and adjust their air defense and electronic warfare equipment for fighters and bombers. And then for a long time they didn’t let them out of America, so God forbid, it’s not lit on our radars

    So what to advertise F-22 when it is not sold and the production line has long been closed? The first option about bullying Moldova is more believable.

    Oh, I'm afraid, I'm afraid ... The hegemon still won't believe that ours are seeing their invisible Raptors. They all try to determine - what if they don't see? What if we have such a formidable weapon in our hands that the Russians will get scared and crawl on their belly, wagging their tail. Naive.

    Lockheed SR-71 is a US Air Force strategic supersonic reconnaissance aircraft. What is meant by hostilities and what kind of strategic intelligence in Syria can we talk about? As for the F-22, it is extremely doubtful that two, albeit very good aircraft, can provide air superiority. Is that to raise the morale of the Romanians?

    Let them try to fly over the sea and they will make sure that the F-22 is not so invisible with all the ensuing consequences. Or maybe they want to fly around the S-300 in the Odessa region.
