American general recognized the professionalism of Russian pilots during interceptions


“We often meet with Russians in and around international airspace. Most of these interceptions remain professional, but, from time to time, there are discussions about the professionalism of a particular crew, whose actions make us pay attention and ask the question: "What are they doing?"
said the commander.

“In the event of an unsafe interception, the US fixes its disapproval,” he added.

He assured that the American pilots in such cases behave professionally, and also stressed the need for "more active training of pilots in a situation of growing threat from the Russians."

At the same time, a Pentagon source in the Pentagon noted that "the number of interceptions that the US considers unsafe has not actually increased, peaking back in 2014." “Russians know the daily routs of American aviation and interceptions for the Russian Aerospace Forces are commonplace, ”he added.

According to the interlocutor, “Russian pilots, as a rule, keep a distance of 50 feet (15,2 meters),” which the US Department of Defense considers to be a safe distance.

    “The Russians know the routes of everyday flights of American aviation and intercepts for the Russian Aerospace Forces are commonplace,”
    An ordinary, routine situation. And only politicians with zhurnalyugami work hard on the air.

      Everything sounds somehow inconsistent, the American generals say that everything is OK and the Russians are normal pros, and the state Brad is yelling about violations and unprofessionalism. In this situation, the general’s opinion seems more honest.

        Normal, well-trained military personnel give an adequate assessment of the likely enemy, unlike watered technologists.
        You can, for example, recognize the professionalism of the Luftwaffe and the units of the Wehrmacht and the SS without any love of Hitler, and get rid of stamps forever (all Russian drunkards, and Americans all fools). The enemy is the enemy, but usually he is treacherous, intelligent and cruel, having gained professionalism in the exercises and during military operations. And he will not regret us. Once slack is given, there will be conquest and genocide.

        And what are they, these GosBredovtsy, yet to yell?! They are yelling what they need in order to stir up the public, to appoint Russians as the personification of evil and to remove the sweet political scum from all this.

      ... there are discussions about the professionalism of a particular crew, whose actions make us pay attention and ask the question: "What are they doing?" "...

      The RF Ministry of Defense does not have questions for specific pilots, God be with them, they will punish themselves, but for the leadership of these pilots. Which allows for the occurrence of incidents.
      Fly and train where it should be - on the national territory, in general, no discussions will arise.

    Yes, Mlyn, a dilemma. If you call Russian pilots unprofessional, do you think there’s nothing to be afraid of them, or is it worth it? After all, they can commit a collision! If you call professionals, you don’t need to be afraid, they will gently intercept and politely carry them home. Or is it worth it? Indeed, in the case of a real battle, they will land immediately! Something like a glitch in the brains of Americans!

    << Most of the interceptions of the US Air Force planes were carried out by Russian pilots professionally, the statement of the Commander of the US Air Force in Europe Frank Gorenz reports to Lenta.ru. >>
    But what will they scream when the professional interception will be carried out by SAMs? Learn how to turn on transponders?

    Here, colleagues, some fuss begins, interesting in the sense of diplomacy ... Obama wants to leave not with shame. I observe and see that America is trying to gloss over relations with Russia. DO NOT change, but varnish. Fuck them. And we already know that Russian pilots are beyond competition.

    Does anyone understand what he said? Russian professionals, but regularly they act unprofessionally ... The general tried to please everyone who can? On the one hand, to show which Russian evil professionals and urgent need to give money for their own needs, and on the other to show what Russian mediocrity, and the glory of Western weapons they can not shame? Or is it such a crooked translation ...

      Not regularly but periodically, and this is a different scenario, however, the fact that the actions of our pilots were recognized as professional (at least someone in the West (the first swallow)) is already pleasant.
      (Two votes in favor are mine).

    If you think that the ice has broken, you are deeply mistaken!
    Everything is simple. An American military pilot or another country within the NATO structure is not ready to psychologically meet in open combat (even if his machine is superior to the enemy). Without details, the word PATRIOTISM Americans will not buy for any money.

    Too many dirty diapers, USA ... Spring / Summer 2016 events - intercepted by the American ship "Donald Cook", intercepted by the anti-submarine aircraft "P-8 Poseidon" over Kamchatka, and the situation in the Mediterranean Sea ... Too much we "the most powerful army in the world" scared .. Not to mention how the Iraqi Marines, on a battle boat, captured the American Marines!

    “Russians know the daily routs of American aviation and interceptions for the Russian Aerospace Forces - a common thing»

    Our pilots constantly hone their skills at these intercepts. Therefore, to call their actions not professional is the real non-professionalism of the American side.
