US forms air strike force in Europe


The Americans continue to strengthen their military presence in Europe. On October 3, 12 US Air Force F-15E Strike Eagle fighter-bombers are expected to arrive in England.


Currently, these aircraft of the 389th Fighter Squadron (389th Fighter Squadron), 366th Fighter Wing (366th Fighter Wing) are on their way across the Atlantic Ocean. They took off from their Mountain Home Air Force Base in Idaho, making brief technical stops to refuel.

The objective of the mission is officially declared to be a "forward presence". However, since 1991, this unit has also often been used for "air intervention".

It should be noted that the Americans are slowly but steadily building up their aviation capabilities in the European theater of operations. In small groups of 4-6, sometimes even 10-12 aircraft, they are transferred to Europe from North America. Moreover, the process of redeployment under various pretexts of the most dangerous F-35 and F-15 fighter-bombers is underway, and this has been going on for about a year.

There should already be about 50 F-35 units and the same number of F-15s of various modifications on the territory of the European countries of Europe. Moreover, there is no end in sight to this process, and the Americans are clearly not going back. Consequently, in a year, the number of US Air Force aircraft in Europe could double and then triple.

Such a number of combat aircraft cannot be ignored - this is a significant force. At the same time, it is necessary to take into account the capabilities of the Air Force and the US European allies themselves, who are actively rearming.

At such a pace, in the next five years, an aviation group that is simply colossal in terms of numbers and capabilities can be deployed near the borders of Russia. It will consist of tactical bombers and stealth fighters designed to overcome layered air defense, which is a great danger.

    Against this background, it is not clear the desire to "push" the Su-35, which Egypt refused - to Iran. Not needed at all?

    Judging by the current situation, "ersatz cruise missiles", which, in essence, are Iranian martyrs are now more needed. At the same time, it is probably not a matter of "selling", but that Iran (itself on the permanent brink of war) refused to sell its "cruise missiles" just like that.

    And we most likely do not believe in a direct conflict with NATO. And in the war with the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the Su-35 is of little use along the way, their air defense sits quietly, does not reflect the radar and simply waits for instructions from NATO when and where to launch missiles.
    Well, if a conflict with NATO does start, we will go to heaven, so we, unlike the citizens of NATO countries, have nothing to fear.

    And how many serviceable planes, helicopters, tanks are in the geyropa ...
    Not those who are listed, but those who are really working.
    In England - approximately 200 Challenger 2 and 200 Challenger 1. In France 380 Leclercs, In Italy - OF-40? In Germany -400 Leopard 2, Leopard 1 -? And the rest have 100 pieces of the Soviet model. So they still have to get there.
    The production lines have already been destroyed (although they say mothballed), all this needs to be restored.
    For example, the production cycle of 1 T-90 tank is 9 months, but we did not destroy the line, so they leave the shops every day and leave ...

    What will we give for drones? You? That's not enough, and the Iranians don't want you. In this matter, as I understand it, we asked. They, as sellers, set conditions. Egypt did not refuse. They forced them to impose sanctions if .... But Iran has been under sanctions for a long time anyway. They won't get any worse. The thinker sometimes needs to be turned on. And it’s funny for their pilots to fly on a fat-free, export aircraft, with Arabic script on the instruments.

      They didn’t drink with you at brotherhood, so poke the one with whom you graze sheep. Did you sit in the cockpit of this plane? Do you know his performance characteristics thoroughly and how "fat-free" he is? Do you read Arabic? Do you have information about all the details of the drone deal? You have problems with the thinker. A failure is a failure, regardless of the reasons for which it is caused.

    "Super-profits", when compared with the same States or China, the RF Ministry of Defense has never had. The military budget of the Russian Federation is stable at the level of an average European country.
    What they could do.
    Something didn’t work out, somewhere they splurged, but, alas, they steal, always and everywhere - people (officials are people too) are the same everywhere, even in the Russian Federation, even in the USA (suddenly, they steal there too).

    I'm not making excuses for anyone, but it's not worth blaming only the Moscow Region or Putin for not popping up "supertechnologies" from scratch either. Better start with yourself - what personally prevented you from organizing production for the MO super-duper UAV?

      it’s also not worth blaming only the Moscow Region or Putin for the fact that they didn’t poop out “supertechnologies” from scratch

      Blaming Putin for the results of his work is not only worth it, but necessary in order to save Russia. In his hands for 20 years were all the opportunities for its withdrawal to the rise and prosperity. Convinced that he could not provide the level of government necessary for the country, he had to leave at the beginning. Instead, he blocked the country from all alternative routes, cleared the political field where they could appear.

      Better start with yourself - what personally prevented you from organizing production for the MO super-duper UAV?

      This classic manipulation of yours does not work, because it does not rely on the guilt of the person you are addressing. Deceived by the "Potemkin village" created in the country under the leadership of Putin, they did not even have the opportunity to doubt what was being done. For this purpose, it was built, depriving the country of the opportunity to correct mistakes.
      That is why Yuri Boldyrev writes about this in the article “You have to pay for political incapacity” https://svpressa.ru/politic/article/341038/

      For this, all approaches to power were walled up and concreted, so that no other idea, no other way of life, development and movement into the future, except for the stupid eating away of the heritage of the ancestors, could constitute an alternative to the consistent degradation of the country that has been going on for three decades.
      It remains to ask a naive question: so if we, the people of Russia, paid and continue to pay tribute in one form or another, then this is a tribute for what?
      Obviously: for our resignation, inability to self-organize and consent to the usurpation of power by those who have the opportunity to pass off their obligations to external forces as obligations of the state, that is, our obligations with you

    All NATO's actions are now the "bricks" of its war with Russia in Europe. This time, new theaters of operations will probably be created by the masters of NATO, the Anglo-Saxons, already in the North-West, in St. Petersburg and Kaliningrad, after the official entry of NATO into the war. For this, sabotage at one of the nuclear power plants in Ukraine is enough. This is the "red button" for starting the war, and it has not yet been pressed by the Anglo-Saxons. Given the sabotage on gas pipelines to Europe, this could happen as early as this winter.
    An interesting article "FP: Russia exposed the entire western border, withdrawing about 80% of its troops" appeared on this resource.

    Of the original roughly 30 Russian troops that once confronted Latvia, Estonia and southern Finland, 80% of the initial roughly XNUMX Russian troops that once confronted Latvia, Estonia, and southern Finland, say XNUMX% have been transferred to Ukrainian territory, according to three senior representatives of the Nordic defense ministries in the region. At present, Russia in this direction has only the backbone of forces, which was once its densest concentration of troops in front of NATO borders.
    The reduction that we have seen in this region over the past seven months is very significant. Russia has had ground forces like this for decades that have now virtually disappeared.
    - said one of the sources.

    At the same time, Russia is transferring other high-tech military equipment, including S-300 systems and missiles to them, from this region to Ukraine along with its ground forces.

    For example, one area of ​​their base, where the 500th anti-aircraft missile regiment is deployed, looks completely abandoned.

    It turns out that we are now laying the foundation for NATO's future victories on our territory with our own hands.
    If you add this to all the oddities of the NWO, the results of Putin's work for 20 years, his "compact but professional" army, which is now being pulled onto Ukraine, exposing the North-West, the conclusion follows unequivocally - Russia is under the control of the Anglo-Saxons, and they are involved in their plan , as well as Ukraine. The channel of control was apparently handed over to Putin by Yeltsin himself, along with the country, as a legacy that cannot be abandoned. If the choice of a successor was not made by the Anglo-Saxons themselves.
    Russia must be freed from this dependence in order to be saved. This is our duty to our children. After liberation, it will become possible to threaten the Anglo-Saxons with a nuclear war to force them to retreat in all positions

    Coming soon. Your main lawyer played in an incomprehensible war / referenda and other nonsense. Instead of instructing the military to do their own thing, he himself commands, makes decisions. If you don't know how, mind your own business! I already agree to some negotiations! Quite .. that?

    All this is not encouraging. What are the conclusions, what to do next in the "development" of the NWO?
