F-22 pilots who arrived in Romania told about their mission

43
American pilots who arrived on F-22 fighters in Romania on Monday told reporters that their task was not to provoke anyone, but to work with allies.




"We are not here to provoke anyone, we are here to work with our allies," the newspaper said. Look pilot Dan Barina.

However, he noted that "the risks that exist in the region are real."

Another military pilot, Rob Morgan, said that they were “very, very careful in their actions” because they have clear instructions “not to provoke Russia”.

Earlier, NATO Deputy Secretary General Vershbow stated the need to deploy a missile defense system in Romania, which "does not aim at undermining Russia's military might, but protecting against threats from the Middle East."

Recall, the two American Raptor fighter, transferred on Monday from Britain, based on the Romanian military base on the Black Sea. The official purpose of the arrival is to participate in the exercise.

      Are they stupid? They don’t understand that their arrival is already a provocation.

        For the "Raptor", the great "member" of the NATO alliance Romania, it is a matter of minutes to fly up and down ...
        They probably arrived to measure the borders ... Well, or practice, whether they can catapult over the Black Sea ...

        This is a gift to our air defense detection devices. It’s not just that Americans are reluctant to let out Raptors abroad.
        So let them fly. It will be on whom to put experiments)))

          What is the training?
          They fly there with hanging tanks, with radar and communication turned on, i.e. not in stealth mode. In this case, they are no different from ordinary ones.

      It would be necessary to hold on to the SU-24 bomber, otherwise the Raptor will knock off the "pantalyk", and he will sit down somewhere in the Kuban, on a rural field, losing his orientation. The damage to our agriculture and the US Air Force is also not small - 146,2 million.

    I’m interested. If more than one NATO radar doesn’t see F 22, then if it is knocked down over the sea, for example, will they understand or not that the plane was shot down or think that it’s just disappeared? Moreover, judging by everything, their satellites are blind. one photo from Donbass is not. With Russian troops.

    Personally, I’m not what. Yes, how many of our warriors can bring down F 22. By the way, this is an occasion near Romania to watch our reconnaissance ships. If my memory serves me so close to our borders this miracle of hostile technology has not yet been based.

    Yes, they want to love someone to check whether our radars will see their miracle pepelats and our wonder what technology can. For amers, only at the level of theoretical calculations, the parameters f22 against our radars are calculated, they want to compare in real conditions, and this is already bad, with simple curiosity they could continue to live, and now why should they ...

    ... their task is not to provoke anyone, but to work with allies.

    And who is stopping you from working with the allies (although the Romanians were allies of fascist Germany, and now they probably have become yours as well. In the Warsaw Pact they were not taken for serious allies. Obviously, for quantity). Work, but most importantly, do not forget that Russia has its own interests in this region - Moldova and especially Transnistria.

    Vershbow declared the need to deploy an anti-missile defense system in Romania, which "aims not to undermine Russia's military power, but to protect against threats from the Middle East."

    You will not envy NATO. Everyone threatens them, they hunt and try to attack them. That is Iran, then the Middle East. Previously, it wasn’t so scary until you left the ABM Treaty. No sooner had they come out, as threats rained down on all sides. Excluding Russia, of course. She is beyond suspicion. The darling of NATO. And for this we must be grateful to them. And they will peacefully have fun in Romania with modern airplanes. Girls ride. And tell tales to us. Simple such. Like came to work.
