American intelligence officer RC-135S spotted in the airspace off the coast of the Murmansk region

56
The reconnaissance aircraft RC-135S of the US Air Force yesterday overflew the Russian border in the Murmansk region, reports Interfax with reference to Western resources, tracking flights of military aircraft.




“A scout with a tail number 61-2663 and callsign LIVID05, who flew out of the Mildenhall air base in the UK on Wednesday morning, is currently on a mission in the Barents Sea. The total duration of the flight with in-flight refueling will be approximately 12-14 hours, of which about four hours the reconnaissance plane will stay near the Russian borders ", - said in a statement.

The publication reminds that last Sunday the RC-135 approached the Russian borders in the Far East. At the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation, the actions of the crew of the aircraft were called unprofessional and dangerous for the flights of other aircraft.

“As a result of unprofessional actions of the crew of the American aircraft, the danger of a collision with aircraft of civilian airlines was created,” the press service of the military department told the agency.

According to representatives of the Defense Ministry, “Russian air traffic controllers were forced to change flight levels to two long-haul European airliners over the Sea of ​​Japan because of the dangerous approach of the aircraft that did not respond to the signals.”

      These are routine flights that have never stopped. There is an information war, and our media began to write about it. As soon as relations with the Americans "warm up" again, such news will cease to be published, although scouts have flown and will continue to fly. The latest RC-135 modifications are very sophisticated machines capable of conducting electronic and optoelectronic reconnaissance.

      On machines where highly sensitive optical cameras are installed, one plane of the aircraft is painted black to avoid glare.

            Yes, it is quite possible that a signal signature base is being developed. possibly for their new EW aviation system. Well, they work out causal relationships, such as the station started working there - and then the squadron rose.

            Hi Sergey! And in these latitudes, in my opinion, it’s really possible to arrange a small magnetic storm. For the navigation system of the Americans to leave the meridian, and for life. Yes! In case of aggravation of the situation, we changed the magnetrons to other frequencies. Missile, control systems, in my opinion, did not turn on at all.

        I will give an example from our practice, in fairness:
        "On December 17, 2012, fighters from the Japanese Self-Defense Forces rose to intercept an unidentified aircraft and found out that it turned out to be the first and so far the only copy of the newest Russian complex reconnaissance aircraft Tu-214R (registration number RA-64511). The aircraft is not painted and does not bear any identification signs. "
        (Unidentified - i.e. the on-board transponder was turned off, did not communicate.)

        And their scout flew in the 80s and 90s along the Kolskoye on a schedule from 12.00 to 15 almost daily, as if on purpose, to disrupt lunch and deprive the crew of the ship on duty for air defense of the "admiral's hour"! They annoyed me like annoying flies, especially after Russt landed on Red Square.
        Well, not sc ....... ka really ?!
        And with the collapse of the union and the arrival of "Judas-drunk" to power, the frequency of their flights really dropped sharply.
