Four F-16 Portuguese Air Force will "guard the peace" of the Baltic States in the coming 4 months

42
Information Agency TASS referring to a representative of the Lithuanian military department and the press service of the North Atlantic Alliance, reports that NATO has transferred the F-4 fighter X-NUMX to Lithuania. These aircraft will carry out a mission to patrol the airspace of the Republic of Lithuania. All aircraft arriving at Zokniai airbase (Šiauliai region) belong to the Portuguese Air Force.


Four F-16 Portuguese Air Force will "guard the peace" of the Baltic States in the coming 4 months


The report says that Portuguese aviation the mission will replace the military mission of the neighbors in the Pyrenees in Lithuania - the Spanish Air Force mission. Spanish pilots on Eurofighter Typhoon planes have “defended” the Baltic sky since January of this year.

It should be noted that Portuguese pilots are attracted to patrolling Lithuanian airspace for the third time. This NATO patrol began in 2004. One aviation group replaces another after 4 months. All the countries of the North Atlantic Alliance, which have their own Air Force with the presence of fighter aircraft, took part in the mission. Lithuania and other Baltic countries feel safe ...

In addition to the fighters of the Portuguese Air Force at the Zokniai airbase in Lithuania, recently there are two fighters of the US Air Force F-22 Raptor.

    By deploying NATO troops on its territory, the Baltic states are forcing the Russian side to take counter-measures to counter the NATO threat; has the Baltic become safer from this?

        It looks like soon (after 4 months or years) the turn will reach the ground group from the Vatican (NATO delivery by air) consisting of four priests for the funeral and blessing the complete rest of the sick Baltic countries.

        In Estonia, a new hospital reform: to provide services throughout the country will be mainly total four hospitals. The public is at a loss and panic.
        Number 4, generally for the Baltic countries it seems sacred.

        They are not sick paranoid. They and NATO as a whole are instruments of US foreign policy.

        Yes, take these planes to capture and escort. Let the pilots get nervous. From the threat of a missile attack.

        This is presented to us "this" under the sauce that they say, at the request of the government and people of the Baltic states and the countries of the former NATO Air Force, it is necessary to strengthen the border with Russia. Self-defense ... However, in reality, a powerful infrastructure is being created to accommodate significant offensive military groupings. This is evident by the nature of their numerous exercises. And the Balts here as extras --- they all came up with for them in Brussels and Washington. All that remains is to read out another bark in our direction on a piece of paper to mask a clear and forward strategy and everything looked culturally.

        Sorry, what kind of study, what kind of rotation? This is not a brigade or regiment, but four pilots every four months. I suspect this is their punishment.

          Why 4 pilots? 4 planes, and there may be more pilots. Plus its own technicals, most likely. Yes, and then a lot is not necessary, four flew, learned in real life what is there and how, then they will conduct classes for others. Cheap and cheerful. And the thesis about punishment is very interesting :-)

      Well, the most arrogant in Europe do not have their own aviation, so they sent Portuguese aces, the "Baltic tigers", to cover them.

      Well, you can mock.

      and who said that they will fly? they will patrol. an airplane is taken, slings are taken. personnel harnessed. and ride the plane on the airfield looking strictly up! to make it easier to carry the plane, the runway is lubricated with oil from sprat washers. ride very fast 10-15 km / h, a special permit will be issued for such a malicious speeding in the territory of the Baltic states.

      why not patrolling? a lot of fun. they would still have to ride, but it’s not all the same.

    Yes, and in the meantime, the inhabitants of Lithuania begin to feel all the "delights" of the transition to € vro on their own skin. So, the prices of goods are slowly growing and are brought to the "European standards". In a nutshell: what cost 10 litas (at the exchange rate to the ruble before the $ / € jumps, 1 litas = approximately 12 rubles) now costs 10 €. And the citizens of Lithuania began to look for other options for "obtaining" food. For example, it has become more profitable to drive to neighboring Poland for goods - it is cheaper there. So, instead of defending against an imaginary external threat, he can first pull a beam out of his own eye, no? No, pride probably does not allow ... After all, after all, a prosperous European power after all yes

    As so, there was just information that the citizens would patrol, all of this is strange. Probably you need a pair of MiGare 31s above them every day to fly every hour through all three great tribales, as they once were over Israel. There will be a squeal, probably in the cockpits of the MiGarey you will hear.

    All aircraft arriving at the Zoknyay airbase (Šiauliai region) are owned by the Portuguese Air Force.

    NATO transferred 4 F-16 fighters to Lithuania.

    Of course, these planes are somehow a damn for us, but the sediment remains. It was written correctly above that taking advantage of the opportunity, NATO is circling around a possible theater of operations. Lithuanians are happy, okay. Yesterday S. Lavrov said that the most Russophobic country in the post-Soviet space is Lithuania. Therefore, why be surprised. The United States uses it (Lithuania) in its own interests, and when pressed it will be kicked out of its field of vision.

    Instead of the fictitious Russian mythical threat, the Baltic states receive the real ones by deploying troops automatically becoming the target for missiles.

    Four F-16s and a pair of F-22s ... I would definitely not call this a serious military group. And as a sedative psychotherapy for the Baltic countries - a little expensive. And not a fact that will help ...
