The meeting of the Aerospace Forces fighter and the American drone was shown on video

A video of a meeting in Syrian airspace of a Russian Aerospace Forces fighter and an MQ-9 Reaper reconnaissance drone ("Reaper") of the US Air Force has appeared on the Web. The video, which shows an American drone plying the Syrian sky without permission, was taken from the cockpit of a Russian plane.

It should be noted that the frames of the "rendezvous" were posted on social networks by the user Fighterbomber, who specializes in aviation. When exactly the recording was made, it is not specified.

You know that UAV pilots are called by the strange word "drones", and their strange flying cabinets are "soulless"? Well, now you know. Meeting of the fighter and the soulless - reconnaissance and shock MQ-9 Reaper. For such "swords" they will definitely give

- commented on the video Fighterbomber.

The MQ-9 Reaper is capable of staying in the air for 27 hours at full load, climbing to an altitude of 15 km and moving at a speed of 400 km / h (cruising - 250 km / h). The flight range is 1,9 thousand km, the carrying capacity is 1,7 tons. It has six suspension points (2 internal 680 kg each, 2 in the middle of the wing 230-270 kg each, 2 cantilever 68-91 kg each).

For the Americans, the MQ-9 Reaper tactical unit consists of several drones, a ground control station, communication equipment, spare parts and service personnel. The drone crew is a pilot and an operator of electronic systems. Depending on the mission, the drone can carry different combinations of weapons and electronic equipment.

According to the Pentagon, on August 18, 2020, in the sky over the province of Idlib, two MQ-9 Reaper were simultaneously lost, flying in pairs on a combat mission with AGM-114R9X missiles on board. Presumably, they were destroyed by the SAA fighters with the help of the Belarusian electronic warfare system "Groza-S".

    Well, why didn't you shoot it down? Then let the Americans wonder what and how. They shouldn't be there at all! What kind of familiarity in war? Will they be filming over the Crimea too? The US would not have missed an opportunity to shit on us. And we are so kind. Therefore, they should not be afraid of us, and therefore do not respect us!

      and you thought that if he shot down, he would thereby give the United States a reason, as you put it, "not to miss the opportunity to screw up on us"?

        Danila46, The United States does not need a reason, they will shit well without a reason. And a reason for them to come up with how ... it's always easy.

          As far as I am aware, the United States hasn’t shot down or blown up its equipment yet, which cannot be said about the Turks and Syrians. Only so far, apart from rotten tomatoes, Russia did not fly to Turkey from Russia, and the Syrians were simply told that they were NOT smart ... And by this, the tough Russian response of the United States to the violation of the Russian border or military exercises close to it is nothing more than wet dreams of couch genialisimus and yapatriots of the "Soviet Russian republic" .....

            USA is an empire of evil! To understand how these animals relate to Russia, it is enough to recall the film filmed in the USA, where the Yankees hypocritically call the terrorist Basayev, the killer of women and children, a freedom fighter! That when the Chechen bandits began to detonate their bombs in the United States, these rotten American animals did not like it ... And the Turks and others, these are only six Yankees!

              Well, full of those you rush slogans. Direct program "Time" in the 80th year. And to draw the entire 340 million country to the villains because of the three-grade kinA, you have too much hapanuli. Cool your indignant mind ...

                Enough mowing like a fool, you don't go and make a fool out of me, you shouldn't try, it won't give you a ride! We both know very well what a “second-rate movie” is, the Yankees shoot for propaganda purposes, to promote Russophobia. The Taliban was also created by the CIA, moreover, against the USSR, just as Georgia was arming against the Russian Federation, and now Ukraine is arming, and the Chechen bandits existed for 99% on US money.

      Well, maybe they shot it down, because even the Yankees admit the loss of a pair of their drone UAVs, and they tend to hide their losses rather than exaggerate them. The Yankees still do not recognize the loss in Yugoslavia of a pair of their B-2s.
