Русская смекалка в 60-тых, американцев до паники довела

 Cache   

Дело было в разгар «холодной войны», когда на Африканском континенте, часто вспыхивали гражданские войны. И зачастую одну сторону поддерживали Штаты, а другую Советский Союз. 

В одну из таких стран, Родина отправила военных инструкторов и небольшую авиагруппу. Как полагается  в таких случаях, летчики получили инструктаж подучить местный язык, чтобы не выдавать своего присутствия. 
Секретность разумееся соблюдалась , однако  американцы и русские  прекрасно знали друг о друге. Чего только стоило радиошоу, которое творилось в эфире, когда наши летчики страшно коверкая, с отчетливым русским акцентом, говорили на местном языке. Американские радисты  в открытую посмеивались над этим. 

Имея на вооружении самолет-разведчик Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, летчики из Штатов вели себя по-хозяйски, летали где хотели, и когда хотели. Особенностью самолета разведчика была высокая скорость и высота полёта до 24 км. 

Картинки по запросу Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird

 

У советских же летчиков, в распоряжение были только Миг-17Ф, который дотягивал лишь до 18 км. Пользуясь этим американцы летали над нашей базой, снимали на фото, всячески показывая свое превосходство в воздухе. 

В конце концов терпение лопнуло, надо было как-то ответить на откровенную провокацию. Собрав совет, решили максимально облегчить один из истребителей, чтобы дотянуть до нужной высоты. Сняли все вооружение, выбрали самого опытного пилота, обеспечили его  высотным  скафандром ВСС-04 и стали ждать. 

  

ВСС-04


И вот время настало, радар показал воздушную цель, летят голубчики на своей любимой высоте в 24 км и прямым курсом на нашу базу. Команда на взлет, наш облегченный Миг взмывает в небо, резво набирая высоту. 
Наши радисты транслировали, что творится в небе. А в эфире было слышно, как американский оператор разговаривает с летчиком Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird, предупреждая его о приближение советского истребителя. На что пилот, лениво ответил, что идет на максимальной высоте и его не достать.
 
После непродолжительного полета, оператор продолжает сообщать, о том что советский истребитель приближается, и все ближе. По мере набора высоты нашим Мигом, тон голоса оператора стал меняться и вскоре сорвался на крик. 
— Blackbird, это база, немедленно уходи, русский уже выше тебя. 

Советский Миг набрал высоту по крутой дуге до 30 км, с резким снижением, набрал скорость и стал нагонять нахального американца. Пилоты Lockheed SR-71 врубили двигатели на полную, пытаясь оторваться. Но из-за большой высоты скорость набиралась медленно. 

Испуганный летчик кричал по рации, что двигатели на полном форсаже, и никак не может сбросить русского с хвоста. На что наш летчик решив припугнуть нахалюг погромче доложил в эфир о захвате цели, и готовности к пуску. 

Американцы надолго запомнили тот день, когда снижая высоту, удирали от советского Мига. Больше возле нашей базы так по-хозяйски они не летали.

Огромное спасибо за развернутый ответ! Стало проясняться, то что дает Тамия в наборе очень похоже на 274. Вопрос возник, потому что Тамия предлагает красить одинаковые блоки в разные цвета.

Ирак завершил получение южнокорейских учебно-боевых самолетов Т-50IQ

 Cache   
Как сообщается, 29 ноября 2019 года ВВС Ирака получили последние два учебно-боевых самолета T-50IQ производства южнокорейской авиастроительной корпорации Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI), из 24 единиц, заказанных по контракту 2013 года. Самолеты имеют иракские бортовые номера IQAF-5023 и IQAF-5024. Все 24 полученных самолета (бортовые номера с IQAF-5001 по IQAF-5024) поступили на вооружение 204-й учебной эскадрильи ВВС Ирака на авиабазе Аль-Сайба близ Басры.

Один из двух последних полученных ВВС Ирака южнокорейских учебно-боевых самолетов KAI T-50IQ (бортовой номер IQAF-5023) из 24 единиц, заказанных по контракту 2013 года. Аль-Сайба (Басра), 29.11.2019 (с) ВВС Ирака




Южнокорейская корпорация Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) подписала контракт стоимостью 1,1 млрд долл на поставку Ираку 24 учебно-боевых самолетов/легких истребителей T-50IQ 12 декабря 2013 года. Данный самолет является адаптированной под требования ВВС Ирака версией разработанного и выпускаемого KAI учебно-боевого самолета/легкого истребителя FA-50 - варианта учебно-боевого самолета Т-50 Golden Eagle совместной разработки KAI и Lockheed Martin. На момент заключения этот контракт стал крупнейшим единовременным соглашением о продаже на экспорт южнокорейского вооружения, и остается крупнейшим контрактом на поставку за рубеж самолетов серии Т-50. В стоимость контракта была включена подготовка иракского летного и наземного состава. В последующем KAI заключила также несколько контрактов на комплексную подлержку иракских самолетов на срок 25 лет, общей стоимостью 2 млрд долл.

По условиям контракта поставки самолетов T-50IQ ВВС Ирака должны быть начаты в апреле 2016 года и осуществлены в течении 12 месяцев к апрелю 2017 года. Первый самолет T-50IQ совершил первый полет на предприятии KAI в Санчхоне 13 июля 2015 года и первые пять самолетов были формально переданы ВВС Ирака в Санчхоне в декабре 2015 года. Фактически поставки значительно затянулись из-за возникших финансовых проблем иракской стороны и затягивания подгототовки иракского личного состава. Лишь в марте 2017 года в Ирак в Басру были доставлены первые шесть самолетов T-50IQ (бортовые номера с IQAF-5001 по IQAF-5006), ввод которых в строй ВВС Ирака затянулся до конца 2017 года. Вторая партия из шести самолетов T-50IQ была поставлена в июне 2018 года, еще шесть - в октябре 2018 года, а окончательно поставки всех 24 машин Ираку завершились только теперь.

Фактически в ВВС Ирака самолеты T-50IQ используются не только к самолеты повышенной подготовки и переходные для подготовки летного состава истребителей Lockheed Martin F-16C/D (F-16IQ), но и как легкие истребители и штурмовики.

OH6 Cayuse: il sibilo del vento è un elicottero da guerra nordamericano

 Cache   
Probabilmente solo in pochi avrebbero pensato, all'epoca della scoperta dell'America, che i nomi di alcune tribù native di queste terre avrebbero assunto, a qualche secolo di distanza, un suono in grado di far preoccupare i membri di uno schieramento militare al letterale capo opposto del pianeta. Ormai tutti conoscono, ad esempio, il possibile doppio senso del termine "Apache" attribuito al tempo stesso all'etnia di origine athabasca e al celebre elicottero da combattimento, sottile ed aggressivo al pari di una vespa, capace di sferrare il proprio attacco al centro esatto di una formazione di mezzi corazzati nemici. E lo stesso vale per il Chinook da trasporto della Boeing con l'iconico doppio rotore, il cui nome è derivato dagli indigeni del Pacific Northwest, esattamente come quello del programma cancellato al culmine della guerra del Vietnam, per l'AH-56 Cheyenne della Lockheed. Molti meno comparativamente, tuttavia, hanno mai sentito parlare dello Hughes OH-6 Cayuse, elicottero leggero da osservazione, per almeno un paio di ottime ragioni: la prima è l'ampia serie

dr. sc. Sanja Vujačić : PRIPREME ZA SAMIT NATO-a u LONDONU : TREBA LI NAM «EUROPSKI GEOPOLITIČKI KIŠOBRAN»?

 Cache   
Krajem prošle godine Belgija se, poput Italije i Nizozemske, odlučila za američke borbene zrakoplove. Njezinim izborom nisu rukovodile niti cijena, niti tehničke mogućnosti F-35, već savezništvo pod svaku cijenu sa SAD-om. Belgijskim « ugovorom stoljeća » (posao vrijedi 3,6 milijardi eura), F-35 Lockheed Martin definitivno će zamijeniti staru belgijsku flotu borbenih aviona F-16. Odbačene su europske ponude: francuski Rafal (Dassault) i Typhoon europskog konzorcija Eurofighter. Najglasnije je protiv te « anti-europske odluke » prosvjedovao francuski predsjednik, upozorivši kako je « belgijska odluka strateški protivna europskim interesima ». Međutim, nije uspio razviti produktivnu raspravu o razvoju « europskog geopolitičkog kišobrana ». Belgijski premijer Charles Michel skratio je priču prokomentiravši : « Za mene SAD nisu postale neprijatelj zato što je Donald Trump postao predsjednik. Usprkos razmimoilaženjima s Washintgtonom, sigurnost naših unuka biti će čvrsto povezana s održavanjem i jačanjem dvojnog saveza, europskog i atlantskog. » (BFM). S tom bi se izjavom lako složili svi Europljani da Belgijanci svojim izborom, ne samo F-35 nego i njegovog razvojnog programa, nisu isključivo razmišljali kako održati kompatibilnost s američkim sustavom zračne obrane. Sasvim su apstrahirali ideju europske strateške autonomije i odlučili se za « američki geopolitički kišobran », jednostavno preskočivši europski.
