Mission for the protection of the sky over the Baltic countries transferred to the British


“The British Air Force pilots and four Eurofighter Typhoon fighters will replace the Belgian Air Force contingent with four F-16 fighters who guarded the Baltic airspace from January 7,”
the report said.

As the agency notes, “the Baltic countries do not have aircraft suitable for air patrols, therefore, since April 2004 (after their entry into NATO), the airspace of the North Atlantic Alliance countries, which are based in Lithuania at the Zokniai airfield, is five kilometers away. from Siauliai. "

Emari base in 2014 has been turned into an additional platform for the deployment of NATO military aircraft.

      "An awl on soap" - no big deal! There is a lot of noise, little sense. Baltic grannies can sleep well. If, of course, the noise does not interfere ....))))) laughing

          I share my feelings, I served there. Panevezys, Šiauliai, Kedainiai, Karsava, Rokiskis, Ukmerge, ...... Routes, sites, throws. Now NATO is patrolling. What are they protecting there. Here is the airfield, everything is destroyed, the takeoff is overgrown. They protect the devastation. Fear is not human, that everything will be reborn.

        I don’t know how they are fighting spirit now, but to be honest to the end, but the British didn’t let Goering's Asam gain air superiority over the English Channel! About 2 thousand planes were shot down. So the enemy should not be underestimated! !

    And in Šiauliai visited the F-22. On May 4, a parade of NATO troops will be held in Kraslava almost on the border with Belarus and the Russian Federation. Combat aircraft are expected to fly over.

      There will be F-22 flying, it makes sense to move a couple of radars to the border. Clearing F-22 data will be helpful.

      Looking in which direction! If you go home to England, then very quickly, if in the direction of the Russian Federation, then in the Baltic, it’s very slow.

    transfer ceremony airspace missions Baltic states

    How it sounds. It just pleases the ear of the western man in the street. Let's imagine for a moment that this space really needed to be guarded, and even periodically engage in aerial battles. Would there be a lot of people willing to come from "enlightened" countries with "developed democracy"? In the meantime, this is a simple political masturbation (excuse the expression) designed for Western political perverts.

    “The Baltic countries do not have airplanes suitable for air patrolling,
    Not only do they not have airplanes, but they also have intelligence. And it’s not worth talking about the sovereignty of the country.

    Romanians have complete superiority in the air, the Balts also bit a piece of themselves. Is it such a perverse preparation of their beloved ones for liberation from EU oppression? let them grow flowers then, there will be something to meet Russian tanks, armies of the liberator from stupidity and insanity.
