Regular reconnaissance aircraft RC-135V visited the shores of the Kaliningrad region

An American reconnaissance aircraft completed a flight at the Russian border and returned to the UK at Mildenhall base, reports Look with reference to Interfax.


Regular reconnaissance aircraft RC-135V visited the shores of the Kaliningrad region


"The reconnaissance aircraft RC-135V with tail number 64-14844 and call sign ELJIN33, spent about an hour performing a mission near the border with the Kaliningrad region in the Baltic," the agency cites a message from one of the Swedish aviation portals.

According to the resource, “the Russian Su-27 fighter was raised to intercept a scout.”

Before that, the American RC-135V with the number 62-4131 and the call sign TANGY18 approached the Kaliningrad region 13 in May.

Recently, the flights of Americans to the borders of the Russian Federation have become more frequent both in the west and in the east. In all cases, Russian fighters rose to meet them, which, according to American pilots, in some cases acted unprofessionally and “unreasonably risky.”

As the representative of the Russian Defense Ministry Konashenkov stated earlier, “this problem of the American Air Force has two solutions: either not to fly near our borders, or to turn on a transponder for automatic identification by our radar means of objective control.”

    I, as I understand it, after a series of attempts and attempts by the American air force, our transponder still taught them to turn it on. Or is the reflex still being worked out? How are Pavlov’s dogs straight. laughing

        Something too often American reconnaissance aircraft began to fly near the border with the Kaliningrad region in the Baltic. Next to Poland, with its national ambitions for the revival of "Great Poland," NATO maneuvers along all the western borders of the Russian Federation, missile defense in Poland have been laid, the Nordic countries are invited to NATO not by whining, but by skating. All this is not good! Oh, it smells like a war from the West against Russia under the instigation of the Pentagon!

          Oh, it smells very war from the West against Russia



          It smelled even BEFORE the annexation of Crimea and BEFORE the start of our hostilities in Syria ...

          It has long been clear that the West does not need an independent, independent Russia ... Since time immemorial, all attempts by the West have been aimed at dismembering Russia, seizing and appropriating its wealth ...

          From the beginning of the twentieth century, who just did not try to pocket-tear Russia up ...
          Americans, British, French, Germans, Romanians, Italians, Czechs, Hungarians, Finns, Poles, Japanese ... do not list all ...

          For this reason, the military-industrial complex should work in a busy mode, and I was very surprised by the words of the GDP about the upcoming conversion of the military-industrial complex after 2020 ... It’s too early to produce pans ... As soon as Russia begins to engage in its production, they begin to bend it with unshakable stubbornness .. .

        So it is necessary to continue to suppress their provocations necessarily, not paying attention to their cries. We can’t justify ourselves - they just become more insolent.

      I think it is necessary to place a powerful electronic warfare system in Kaliningrad so that it would jam everything about radars and airplanes by scouts. Create them false targets and unreal ..... forgive me. Forgive unrealistic interference. That they would constantly work in interference mode

        In this matter, I fully trust the General Staff, and prompt him the "correct" actions ... somehow immediately doubts arise about their correctness, and about the correctness of the "prompter".
        He (and only he - the General Staff) has a complete picture of the situation, and he knows better what to do in a particular case.

    Good old game from the times of the USSR ...
    they tickle our nerves and we tell them .... and it looks like a long time.
    Bursts of activity of such events are observed during periods of aggravation of contradictions between RUSSIA and the USA.

    For me, this is very useful for checking the readiness of our air defense to visit these guests ... you can also test the capabilities of their reconnaissance equipment and aircraft.

    Can show them the professional work of our ground-based air defense systems?
    Then we will see who risks unjustifiably.

    We have always flown like this, only our pilots are both morally, psychologically and professionally ready for such overflights, and our "partners", when they start flying around, remember about diarrhea, indigestion and screeching wildly that our fuselage did not scratch the fuselage a little.

    According to American pilots, in some cases they acted unprofessionally and "unreasonably risky."

    Our “non-professionals” intercept in silence, and the staff “professionally” yell every time. The impression is that their press gives material on the interceptions even when the scouts take off from the base.

        And in Alaska, there are only a few large cities where the Americans themselves live, and all the rest are villages of oil workers and indigenous people (such as our Chukchi). Alaska residents are paid a northern premium, simply because they live in Alaska for at least six months a year. I could move to Alaska, to Anchorage, provided that our state would talk less and do more business, and then the current Russian salaries of 13000 rubles a month, which still have to pay taxes, are not suitable for me, it’s costing me housing and communal services 6000 rubles per month, and our president and deputies do not seem to care how or what people live in the Russian Federation.

    Westerners are feeling our area for the installation of missiles to justify the appearance of a missile defense base in Poland. They supposedly placed the Russians, but we are defending ourselves. But bolt them with a left-handed thread.

    When Poland was in the Warsaw Treaty bloc and later, when there were no missiles in Poland, they both flew and fly. They do not need excuses, they check the nerves for strength.

    I remember how in the late 80s I was on an internship in the S-200 anti-aircraft missile battalion near Minsk. There, every day during our lunch, a couple of Lockheed A-12s, who had risen from the same base in England, flew along the "Great Spear" route. The division went up on alarm. They carried out their combat missions, we were ours. soldier So it was every day. Work and no hysteria. Why escalate the situation now? They fly over neutral waters, let them fly. It is necessary to accompany and control them.

    But for some reason, the article did not indicate that THIS TIME the reconnaissance aircraft flew with the transponder turned on ...

    So, courtesy was still taught .... So, we realized that otherwise the plane might not have returned to base ...

    Russia itself should constantly patrol the US borders. Make Americans feel a constant threat to their borders. In this case, they will not be up to US bases in Europe and around the world, and the question will be how to protect their territory. Otherwise, Russia will only brush aside scouts - planes and ships, as from vile flies.

    RC-135V does not go to the Baltic mission from continental airfields. In Britain it has better protection and maintenance and from there it has more opportunities to covertly approach the areas and objects of interest. And more frequent flights do not let anyone relax. They conduct reconnaissance, provide RC-135V, accept and process the data. Ours are also more responsible for detecting, tracking and simulating interception. They say that this mutual process is very exciting and that they explain it to each other on the fingers through the glass of the cabs --- a great military secret bully But the missiles on the suspensions of our dryers and on the mounts of ground batteries are also military. And they are absolutely military, not training. Therefore, everything is adult, but with a share of universal humor and Russian hospitality. The main thing is to give him information where anyone will be with us in case of war. Well, I wish the stationary goals so that there is no war soldier
