Khodarenok: British RC-135 was probably intercepted by Russian MiG in hard form

On August 15, the Russian Ministry of Defense informed the public that an RC-135 radio intelligence aircraft of the British Air Force violated the Russian air border near Cape Svyatoy Nos on the eastern coast of the Kola Peninsula. The MiG-31BM air defense fighter on duty was sent to intercept the “lost” Briton.

The communiqué clarified that the reconnaissance aircraft "was pushed out" from the territory of Russia. On August 16, a 68-year-old military observer, retired colonel Mikhail Khodarenok (he served in the air defense and the General Staff) drew attention to this detail on his Telegram channel. He believes that the British plane was probably intercepted by a Russian fighter in hard form.

The expert recalled that according to the decree of the Russian government dated February 22, 2020 No. 201, military aircraft "are forced to land on the airfield or exit the airspace of the Russian Federation" if the crew does not comply with the radio commands and visual signals.

If this violating vessel refuses to comply with the given radio commands (visual signals) to land or leave the airspace of the Russian Federation, weapons and combat weapons are used to kill it. technique duty forces

- says the document, the paragraph from which the expert cited.

Khodaryonok explained that it was easy to guess about the actions of the Russian MiG-31BM, which expelled the British RC-135 from the state border. Most likely, the interceptor, using the advantage in speed and maneuverability, passed with a slight excess of speed in front of the reconnaissance aircraft's nose, and maybe several times, crossing his direction of movement, as a result of which the RC-135 had to "shake" in the sky.

Considering that such maneuvers could lead to the engine shutdown (due to surging) of the expelled aircraft or to its stalling, the crew of the RAF RC-135 quickly sharpened their skis away. Moreover, I will express an unpopular point of view - even if the Russian air defense forces on duty eventually shot down the intruder, there would only be a lot of stink, but nothing more

- summed up the expert.

It should be added that on August 12, a similar aircraft of the British Air Force was seen over the Black Sea.

    The whole question is on what territory this scout would fall. If on the territory of the Russian Federation, then shoot down without hesitation. It is even possible to push back into the depths of the Russian Federation and shoot down. The war is in full swing, and there is nothing to mumble anymore ... ..

    Their flyers have high-capacity diapers, and therefore they are not afraid to fly into us.

    Yes, our planes are shot down, but no, no, we all play tolerance and adherence to principles. There is no Prophet in our Fatherland.

    The British need to announce a warning (the last Chinese) and say that the next time will be the same as the last.
    But seriously, I served at the time when ours shot down a South Korean Boeing. There really was a lot of stench. But besides the stench, the Americans staged a show of force. Two of their AUGs, together with a landing helicopter carrier, headed for the shores of Kamchatka. And then our second flotilla of nuclear boats "stood up"! It was with me. Everything that could resist the Americans went to sea. All piers were empty. And they, not reaching Kamchatka, turned south, passed along the Kuril Islands and their aircraft also flew over the islands there. And only when ours raised almost the entire air army in Primorye, they retreated to Japan and stopped the provocations. So there was a lot of anxiety. Apparently an Englishman was sent for the same purpose. They hoped that the "evil Putin" would give the command to shoot him down. And Putin remembers the Korean.

      The Korean was shot down on September 1, and in April of that year, planes from an American aircraft carrier flew over the Kuriles with impunity, and we did not raise interceptors. After that, the KFVO air defense command received a thrashing and an order to shoot down all violators. And I think Putin doesn’t care about that Korean, it’s just that the current incident was not worth such complications - after all, the Englishman dumped, and the Korean impudently flew over our territory for an hour and a half.

    this analyst has been talking all sorts of nonsense in the past and probably continues to do the same now. The authorities of the Russian Federation act as loyally as possible to the tricks of the "partners" and will not shoot down anyone, even if the reconnaissance aircraft reaches the Urals.
    The events with the English intelligence officer are a stupid provocation. The British are not fools and they laid the route in such a way that they would provoke it, but even in the event of destruction, it would fall in neutral waters. ON this and the calculation that the Aerospace Forces understand this and will not shoot down, and even if they shoot down, there will be a howl, mother don’t cry ..

      the key word is "probably". And this is just a test of the limits of patience - they didn’t shoot down, which means you can send weapons and more serious ones, and then it will be necessary to pretend that we’re not hurt, we’ll set up more bridges

    It takes a long time to shoot down! After all, how many are already violated! Before the domestic, too, they constantly forgave the Germans for their provocations!

    But he is right! In addition to what they do and bark, there will be nothing more. Not that Briton went today ...
