American military aircraft are trying to pick up frequencies of the radar of the Russian S-400 air defense system.
New American Global Hawk drones will be brought into NATO’s service and will be able to follow the events in Russia at the distance of up to 200 km without crossing the border. This was stated by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Norwegian edition of the Verdens Gang reports.
Specialists were able to find out that the pairing of American military aircraft and drones off the coast of Crimea and the Russian military air base Hmeimim in Syria is associated with scanning the frequencies of Russian S-400 systems, having gained control over which the American side will be able to freely violate the borders of Russia.
In recent months, US military reconnaissance aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles have been regularly seen near the borders of Crimea and Syria. It’s about working in pairs. At the same time, the drone often operates at the very borders of airspace, forcing the Russian S-400 to work in an active mode, while military reconnaissance aircraft scan electronic signals and process them.
NATO is reported to have purchased five Global Hawks that will be deployed by 2022. Unmanned aerial vehicles are capable of flying without refueling for up to 30 hours at an altitude of 18 km, and their radars will allow getting clear images from the ground within a radius of 200 km.
Against the background of earlier information that Washington still managed to gain access to the frequencies of the Russian S-400s, experts had a question about whether the American Global Hawk tried to make an attempt to break into the airspace of Russia, jamming the radar of the Russian S-400 air defense systems .
