American pilots faced system failure due to the approach of the Su-35 in the skies of Syria


The American multi-role fighter F / A-18E Super Hornet in the Syrian sky experienced a number of technical problems due to the failure of on-board systems responsible for strikes against ground targets due to the approach of the Russian Su-35. This, according to Military.com, follows from a report by the RAND Corporation, a California research center that carries out orders from the United States government.


During one of the air missions, the Su-35 multipurpose super-maneuverable fighter flew over the territory on which the American aircraft were striking. The actions of the Russian fighter were monitored by the F / A-18E Super Hornet, which had a FLIR-type infrared sensor, used to capture targets on the ground, out of order.

Incorrect operation of on-board sensors was just one of the problems that US pilots had to experience during their combat missions in the skies of Syria.

The most prominent role in the air fight against ISIS terrorists at its initial stages was played by the American F-16 Fighting Falcons and F-15E Strike Eagles, having completed almost 2014 sorties by the end of 1800. At the time, RAND said, one of the main obstacles to fighting the jihadists was the lack of necessary intelligence about the militant hideouts, which were the concentration of funds generated from the use of oil facilities.

          All that remains is to find a connection between the failure of the FLIR sensor and the flight of the Su-35. And then I know cases when planes broke down in the sky without a NATO plane flying near them.

            See above - believe! Trust only the Russian media! And disbelief will lead to landing, natural! Any doubt is in favor of the West, and it is our enemy!
            By the way, the Duma is working on a law banning Starlink, OneWeb & Project Kuiper on the basis that it will bring Western propaganda and ideas into the immature, clean brains of Russians.

            Why Russia is afraid of SpaceX - and Starlink
            https://www.fool.com/investing/2021/02/15/why-russia-is-terrified-of-spacex-and-starlink/

            “Just say no to fast internet
            As reported by ArsTechnica.com last month, the Russian State Duma ("Congress of Russia") is currently considering legislation to impose fines on any person or entity that subscribes to Starlink - or indeed any foreign satellite Internet system OneWeb ... or Project Kuiper included. According to ArsTechnica, the Russian Duma could fine individual Starlink customers up to $ 405 for using satellite Internet and impose fines on corporate users up to $ 13,500.
            And yet, it looks like there is an economic motivation to ban Starlink and other satellite networks. As pointed out by Ars, "Russia plans to create its own constellation of satellite Internet, known as the Sphere." And unlike SpaceX's Starlink, which is a private and privately funded communications system, a constellation of 600 Sphere satellites will be built and run by the Russian state under the auspices of the Roscosmos space agency. And that could be a problem.
            You see, there are rumors that the construction of Sphere will cost $ 20 billion, the launch may begin no earlier than 2024 and will not be completed until 2030. Given the amount of investment required, the Russian government is definitely unwilling to pay for the Sphere project. only to discover three years later that all of Sphere's potential customers have already signed up for Starlink - and that he will never return his investment.

            For Russia, allowing StarLink and saving $ 20 billion is very good! Would! But owning the brains / thoughts of your citizens is more important! It can be seen in the Kremlin to be afraid of something, and since being afraid means doing something wrong for the people ...

                  alex5450, there is not a word about Starlink, OneWeb & Project Kuiper, etc. in the docs you linked to.

                  There are foreign satellite networks over the territory of the Russian Federation, but there are no rules for use. And this idiot has been going on since 2019. I have no doubt that such documents should exist.

                  Well, our officials, in this situation, are more like a herd of not frightened idiots than frightened fighters of information wars.

                    Of course, laws are not passed against a specific company with an indication of it in the text. They are taken against the phenomenon. And the phenomenon is "Starlink, OneWeb & Project Kuiper", which differ from the existing certified satellite communication systems operating on the territory of Russia (for quite some time) in that theoretically and promisingly they can work without base stations.

                    Correspondingly, it is precisely the possibility of working bypassing all this sorm-spring gimp that is nipped in the bud.

                        Freedom of speech is an opportunity to safely express your opinion to the public.
                        Although here I will get better sooner, first of all, the freedom to receive and exchange information. But these concepts are very closely related. One is not worth much without the other.
                        Satellite systems of a "new kind" can theoretically be outside the control of the state where their terminals are used. Hence the tightening of legislation.

                        Of course I remember - for example European countries. There "freedom of speech" is more than in, for example, we have, and we have more than in North Korea.
                        But I have already understood your message "since absolute freedom of speech is unattainable, there is nothing to talk about."

                        Freedom is slavery, war is peace.

                        I would like to hear from you how you define this concept. You didn't succeed. It remains only to wonder how cleverly you have determined where there is more and where there is less freedom of speech, in which country.

                        Freedom of speech, performed by liberals, is a demand to allow them to say whatever they want with impunity.

    Are you afraid to say? Of course they are. Only not at all what you are hinting about. As there is with Uncle Misha, this is his immortal- "It's all about the money." You say the economy? And why did you decide that in the case of a Starlink and others like him After the permission, where will the tax deductions and profit from the operation of the leased equipment go (or rather to whom)? Everything lies on the surface, no liberal conspiracy theories and terrible secrets. Business. And nothing more.

      ... After permission, where will the tax deductions and profits from the operation of the leased equipment go (or rather to whom)?

      Both equipment imported into the country (tax in Russia is paid by Musk) and tax on profits received from subscribers (the tax is paid by Musk) are taxed. But the state has what any government that cares about its people can only dream of - for free (without its own costs!) To give millions of residents access to networks and the opportunity not to feel alone / abandoned / forgotten !!!
      Now there are tens of thousands of subscribers to StarLink, but read their reviews ?? This is a huge human thanks to my country for giving these people such an opportunity! And a remote village in Canada, where only 10 thousand inhabitants and the highest suicide rate in the country among children due to lack of contact, and remote farms / businesses in the USA, Canada and England - all are grateful to StarLink. Expensive?
      Yes. But the state partially compensates subscribers for their costs, because take care of people. And the most important thing is that the Internet in inaccessible, difficult-to-communicate parts of the country keeps people and businesses there, allows developing infrastructure, and makes people busy. How to calculate the profit from this?

        After seeing North American WTI oil prices drop to - $ 37, I thought that nothing could amaze me anymore. But today's prices for physical supplies of gas in the US regional market are beyond comprehension. Gas prices in Oklahoma (OGT) jumped to $ 500 per mBtu ($ 17,7 thousand per thousand cubic meters) and settled at $ 377 ($ 13,3 thousand). An increase of 10 times, "Bloomberg's leading energy correspondent Javier Blas tweeted. He noted that at the Waha regional hub in West Texas, prices rose to $ 795 per mBtu ($ 164 thousand per thousand cubic meters

          It's all the same to you now. But I'm going to hammer this into you all the time.

            Will the water that wears away the stone run out? Maybe it's time to show what the Russian military-industrial complex has achieved in the last 20-30 years, except for patching holes in spaceships with tape?

              What are you talking about now? The station that is being patched up, according to the technical passport, should have been flooded in the 20th year, the resource is exhausted. NASA clings to it because it itself does not know how to build anything of the kind. All these victorious blah-blah-blah without Russia and her experience is an empty sound. And we leave the project in 22m. Achievements of the military industrial complex, give you? And read that the press, but at least the Western, did not try? And about "scotch tape". A polymer adhesive composite with which a crack from impact with debris and "scotch tape" was closed not the same thing. In terms of strength after "setting", it is equal to aero-posites and 1,5 times stronger than duralumin armored alloy of similar thickness. Do not believe everything that liberd screams.

    American pilots faced system failure due to the approach of the Su-35 in the skies of Syria

    The actions of the Russian fighter were monitored by the F / A-18E Super Hornet, which had a FLIR-type infrared sensor, used to capture targets on the ground, out of order.

    - Yes, I'm tired of reading these fairy tales, parables, jokes ... - How long is it possible ???
    - Is it here, a kindergarten, or something, is going ...
    - - That "Cook" was scared so much that he already showed up in the Black Sea ... - probably seek protection from the Turks ...;
    - That the crew of the American aircraft carrier ran "in a race to leave" ... - so it was "frightened" by our "formidable aviation" ..;
    - Then the F / A-18E Super Hornet suddenly "burned out" ...
    - I'm tired of all this nonsense ... for whom is it at all ???
    - Here, personally, I am asking a question here several times ... -Someone can give evidence that a fighter (attack aircraft, bomber) of Russian production, piloted by anyone ... - even an Arab, even a Japanese, even a Thai .. - whatever you like ... - would have shot down at least one F-16 in an air battle ...
    - The F-16 itself has shot down our aircraft more than once in the air ... and always with impunity ...
    - And enemy pilots received awards for this; and our pilots (and not only ours) ... as always received ... - only "Eternal memory" and awards posthumously ...
    - No, well, really ... Turks in F-16 (assembled at Turkish factories), from a distance of 20 km ... - easily knocks down our Su-24, which performs a combat mission ... - Then ... - again the Turks in the F-16 (also assembled at the factories of Turkey) likewise knock down the Syrian Su-24 from the extreme distance ... - there an air-to-air missile ... was already on its way ... - barely flew. ..
    - So our flyers ... do not need to "frighten"; specifically, to "land" NATO planes ... - there is no sense from such "frightening" ...

    The American multirole fighter F / A-18E Super Hornet in the Syrian sky experienced a number of technical problems due to the failure of onboard systems responsible for strikes against ground targets due to the approach of the Russian Su-35. This, according to Military.com, follows from a report by the RAND Corporation, a California research center that carries out orders from the United States government..

    - Yes, I'm tired of reading these fairy tales, parables, jokes ... - How long is it possible ???
    - Is it here, a kindergarten, or something, is going ...

    I'm ready to believe that once again the shitty stuffing of American fighters is to blame.

    But who's the storyteller ??? repeat

    The actions of the Russian fighter were monitored by the F / A-18E Super Hornet, which had a FLIR-type infrared sensor, used to capture targets on the ground, out of order.

    So what prevented Hornet from carrying out his mission, as well as the Su-35's?
    Drying did not seem to be on the ground while simultaneously brushing off Hornet with a laser pointer, but was doing her job. laughing
    It is very interesting and at what distance I tracked it, so the monocle probably fogged up and drops of sweat dripping onto the sensor closed the entire on-board electrical network. lol
    Or Drying flew so dazzlingly that IR sensors within a radius of 100 km all fell out, all the terrorists went bald by changing their shoes and denomination at the same time three times, and the American pilot immediately executed his dismissal report and flew to Texas. good That's probably all, the war can be over, there are only a couple more SU-35 sorties at low level flight. The generals write reports and simultaneously drill holes for new stars and orders. A joke about nothing. drinks
    Maybe on a technical site, this can be discussed, but from a different angle.
