Military Watch: Russians helped Venezuela discover American F-22s


Amid growing tension between the United States and Venezuela, several reports appeared that American F-22 Raptor fighters were approaching the borders of the Bolivarian Republic. Military Watch believes the F-22s were vulnerable to potential enemy radars, thanks to help from Russia.


Experts of the publication consider Raptor the most combat-capable stealth fighter of the existing ones. And if the F-22s were indeed discovered, then this can hardly be considered a merit of the Venezuelan air defense. It is noteworthy that US Air Force officials talk about the potential vulnerability of Raptor due to the fact that the aircraft were involved in operations in Syria and tracked there by Russian surveillance and control equipment.

Thus, it is likely that military experts from Russia shared with their Venezuelan colleagues information on methods for detecting American stealth fighters.

To track the F-22 near its air borders, Venezuela used the JY-27 Chinese early warning radar. Military experts believe that the chances of finding Raptor fighters can be increased if you use other radar stations, including those from the S-300B4 air defense system, which are in service with Venezuela.

    Fake, fake and fake chases ...
    US Air Force officials did not say that.
    Aircraft were visible in Syria because they were made visible.
    Raptor will not reach Venezuela without refueling. But there is no need to fly in this direction to an interceptor-fighter.

      On this day, invisible caps from the warehouse did not give out? request Do not say such terrible things, we have so many young people who take everything literally. You break their hearts and explode your brain winked

      Yes, it will not fly, only this is not an argument. Or refueling forgotten how to do? Yes, and there are enough bases nearby, Honduras, Colombia. As for the need, this was not particularly necessary in Syria either, they could well fly to probe the air defense system. So, to say unequivocally - whether it was or not - will not work. It could well fly nearby.

    Again, all sorts of "fake-like news" from the series: ".. several messages appeared ...", ".. Thus, it is likely ..", etc.
    Of particular trust and respect is the source quoted:

    Meanwhile, the "authoritative American magazine" Military Watch, appeared only in February, and over the past month has collected a little more than 100 thousand visitors (more or less serious media usually get as much as 1 material), and they link to this site only in Russia. The domain name of the site was registered only in February 2018, and the Kremlin publications mainly refer to it, and this is not surprising - many materials on the site are devoted to the power of Russian weapons and the impotence of the West before the greatness of Russia and China. So, in early May, Vesti.Ru (the website of the Russia 24 TV channel) quoted Military Watch claiming that the Russian aircraft carrier Storm would change its balance in three regions of the world at once: in the Mediterranean, the Arctic and Southeast Asia. At the same time, the ship itself is planned to be built only by 2025. Also, several news from Sputnik Türkiye, the Turkish branch of the Russian news agency, is dedicated to this “American site”.
    On the site itself, all articles are anonymous, and in the About Us section there is not a word about the owners and the editors, however, for the magazine about the Asia-Pacific region, The Diplomat is written by a certain Abraham Ait, who is represented by the chief editor of Military Watch. He is represented at Diplomat as "a military analyst who specializes in the security of the Asia-Pacific region and the role of aviation in modern military conflicts." None of the Western media refers to the “military analyst” anymore, but his blank page is on the pro-Kremlin Russia Insider website (not to be confused with The Insider).

    From the publication it follows that invisibility does not meet the criteria of invisibility at all, then the main criteria for fifth-generation aircraft crumbles?

    And, again, noodles on the ears with pots.
    In fact, the main thing is, at what distance did you find out how many special reflectors you usually fly and took off with?
    This is not in the news.

    And: and what to do a specialized fighter, imprisoned for aerial combat, in Venezuela?

    F-35 can even monitor the earth, but these? Shoot down the local oldies?
