It became known about the loss of communication with the American UAV in the Donbass


American drones continue to carry out reconnaissance and monitor the situation in the Donbass, near the borders of Russia and in the parts of the Black Sea that are closed for exercises by the RF Armed Forces. On April 24, 2021, navigational resources discovered a pair of simultaneously operating US Air Force RQ-4 Global Hawk strategic drones in the South-East of Ukraine, which happened for the first time and indicates the increased activity of Washington in this corner of the planet.


At the same time, according to experts observing the airspace, they learned that one of the drones mentioned gave a signal 7600 (loss of communication) and made a sharp turn by 180 degrees. This happened when he was too carried away by his activities and too close to the border of Russia. According to experts, some Russian specialists could “help” the American UAV operators to realize their mistake, in the desire to “look deeper” into the territory of the Russian Federation. The installed equipment allows the RQ-4 Global Hawk to receive radar images of the terrain with a resolution of 1 m at a distance of 200 km.



These UAV "strategists" can stay in the air for up to 24 hours and rise to an altitude of 20 km. The radius of their action is approximately 5,5 thousand km. They are controlled from the NATO military base "Sigonella" in Sicily (Italy), the distance to which (in a straight line) does not exceed 2,5 km.

Note that until the fall of 2018, American drones appeared in the Black Sea region only twice. On October 15, 2016 and May 14, 2017, RQ-4 Global Hawk made reconnaissance flights near Crimea and along the contact line in Donbass with the permission of Kiev. Since November 25, 2018, after the incident with Ukrainian ships in the Kerch Strait region, US drones have begun to appear much more often in the region. Now it can be called a full-fledged watch.

    Judging by the map, these "big-eyed" people are not allowed to reach the border closer than 100 km. LPNR is also afraid. I don't get closer than 100 km.

    - - Ha ... "Judging by the map" ... - these "big-eyed" ... - can transmit very precise coordinates of military facilities on the territory of the LPNR ... - And while striking the LPNR ... - in real time to conduct an excellent adjustment of firing at LPNR targets; give excellent "backlight" and ensure the application of precise point hits ...

      They can, in principle. But, judging by everything, they were also clearly shown that, if necessary, someone else can just as well cancel all these their capabilities ...

          Irina, I already wrote to you earlier that I don’t give you any disadvantages in principle. Not my style.
          And the capabilities of this drone are canceled by the one who, in terms of demonstration, cut off the connection with the base, apparently flew on an emergency machine for some time, and his "pilot", a poor fellow, at this time, somewhere in sunny Sicily, was changing diapers, in anticipation of a thrashing from the command ... laughing

            I heartily from her every time I spank a minus... In her every post, hysteria, it contributes to my choice. Ensign who teaches the Supreme Commander-in-Chief of the RA, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation (Gerasimova she teaches wassat ), Shoigu and others - this is enchanting

            - - Ha ... Ahaha - Ha-haha - is also present in almost every post. I see the contented face of the ensign, who beat Gerasimov with her wisdom on the ax. In general, it's funny, but tiring.

            PS Gorenina has never answered me yet who she voted for. Shy

              nevertheless, there are still not so many women in this company, or rather, almost none at all. And women who are interested in politics, weapons, etc., and also communicate on these topics are generally something from the realm of fantasy. This should be appreciated. And therefore, in this case, even with an acute disagreement with the content, I try not to offend in any way and behave loyally ... love

                This should be appreciated

                questionable statement. There are already enough Latvians and Ukrainians - analysts on the death of Russia and appraisers of the work of the General Staff

                I try not to offend in any way and behave loyally

                offend? Not. Give an assessment to what has been written - why not? She also gives an assessment of the work of the General Staff and Gerasimov - right on the go)

                YES, and the question for whom she voted for - criticizing everything and everyone in a row - it’s as if not for insult

                  If I have an opinion on a comment, I try to simply express it, give a counterargument. There are many people with whom I disagree, but with whom, judging by the comments, it still makes sense to discuss. Mrs. Gorenina, and with my frequent disagreement with her, among them. And there are really those who, apart from a minus, have nothing to say - peas against the wall ...
                  And the vote is secret, so that everyone does it at their own discretion and without fear. Maybe the person is really not stupid, and he is simply ashamed of his choice to voice it.
                  If you are interested, I personally voted for Putin, the most worthy candidate, so I am not ashamed to say this openly wink

    Where did he go? Which direction? Maybe he landed in Russia? Americans are generous.
