    The Shtatniks will not calm down in any way. They feel the coherence of the actions of the Russian air defense and air forces.

      Looks like there is an overabundance of states in the States (pun intended!) For reconnaissance aircraft. After all, you can lose a couple due to bad weather conditions over the Baltic puddle.

        over the Baltic puddle.
        Why so? For centuries, the Vendian Gulf or the Varangian Sea, now the Baltic Sea, has been in the sphere of interests of the Slavs, Russia, the Russian Empire, the USSR and Russia. Our ancestors would not have fought for a puddle and would not have laid down their lives for the sake of free access to this sea.

    And that it is impossible to direct any impulse from the territory of Russia, cutting down the electronics on this reconnaissance?

    Do not include our electronic warfare systems, they are secreted. There is no war, but this one flies in order to scout something new. Just put at least the old radars on the border to calm down - Russia, they say, is fighting on rusty junk. laughing

    Well then! ayah! No matter what along the border, the main thing flew by. Damned bourgeois ...
    ... And about by the way ...:
    According to eyewitnesses, yesterday, four Chinese aircraft flew over the closed city of Seversk (Tomsk-7), which is one of the centers of the Russian nuclear industry
    ... And silence ... Neither refutation nor affirmation ...

    We talk a lot, but we do little. That is why the shtatovskie scum are greedy! But the opposite is necessary. Make it, and then scratch the languages. After all, the Russian proverb is right: "Get out of it, don't move bags!"

    The news is about nothing ...

    Well, he approached the border. But he didn’t break it!

    In addition, it is neutral water. Or can only our sides fly there?

    After all, no one is hysterical due to the fact that south of Nakhodka, a similar RC-135 revolves daily, for months, in neutral waters?

    Or is the fact that reconnaissance flights are carried out along our borders is news to anyone?
    And our planes, rest assured, are doing the same!

    So there is no reason for just indignation.

    I didn’t minus, but I’ll answer. First of all, this is not news, the plane flew over neutral waters, and ours fly no less. And everyone is trying to fly closer to the border - all radio-electronic reconnaissance means have a range - the closer you are, the more " you see "the depth of the territory. If it will violate the border, this is news. Well, I think Powers' experience has not yet disappeared, and the" cold war "in the past, I think there will be no immediate downing of the plane, they will intercept and try to force it out. protests will be handed over. soldier hi

    Surely it is impossible during the flight of this US reconnaissance aircraft to discreetly dig a hole in the fuel tank so that this bumblebee does not fly home ?.

    just want a few things to achieve
    1. that our air defense would reveal its capabilities.
    2. to get used to these maneuvers and thus become familiar. And at the right time to make a provocation (which is not yet known, but the worse the better for them).
    3. distracting maneuver.
