EYES ON: Russian fighter jet collides with US drone causing it to crash into Black Sea; The European Command statement warned: “These aggressive actions by Russian aircrew are dangerous and could lead to miscalculation and unintended escalation." (archive.is) ✈️ Dronefags ✈️
Damn those Russians are escalating tensions...on the sea that directly borders the Western part of their country and that is thousands of miles from us...
The Slava Ukraina crowd are gonna eat this up.
You mean the black sea isn't in the gulf of mexico?
its black so it's in aFrIcA, Jack!
Should be renamed to African-American sea, or BIPOC sea.
This is probably how the drone got lost and ended up there!
Not if it didn't vote for Biden!
It's ridiculous, and the European Command needs to shut their fucking mouths.
Yeah I said it.
These damn Russians will sacrifice any number of expensive fighter jets just to damage our tiny defenseless drones that dindu nuffin.
Could USA be playing chicken and designing reasons to escalate?
Gulf of Tonkin Incident.
Could they be? No.
Are they? Yes.
Our government intends to take this as far as necessary to enact their agenda to waste this world and its denizens away.
Abortion, gender politics, Fentanyl, Covid, social media, feminism, SSRIs, and welfare haven't wasted away enough people, apparently. Gonna need to nuke em to really get the job done.
I'll stick to online smut and nicotine. At least my organs will still be harvestable... Most of them anyway. May have to start eating more pork, to make sure my liver doesn't end up overseas. They'll save my kidneys for last.
Just make sure to list "bacon enthusiast" on every identity form you can, that way it'll keep it out of the bacon haters' hands.
If you don't like bacon you're a bad person!
True words there mate!
The heckin Russians attacked the USA, who were innocently flying over the Black Sea and were totally organic.
Not trying to cause a distraction from a yuge banking collapse, a stolen election, sneaky biolabs exposure and environmental Ohio disaster or Epstein- related subpeonas AT ALL, honest. It's just that Russian fighter pilots are behaving like gamers.
Oh and military age males invading the Southern US border - nothing to see here!
Also the only military to have actually used 2 nuclear bombs on inhabited areas. I think that's environmentally unsafe.
Probably best to ask Greta though.
Dumped fuel on! 😂
Sounds like something I’d do in GTA 6
"Hello, I want to talk to Putin. I have a complaint to make. It's about Russian airforce not following ESG."
Maybe if the US would stop sending its equipment right next to active war zones then this sort of thing would not happen? Just a thought.
But that would be intelligent.
Is the Black Sea international? It’s land locked and there are only a few countries that share it. It seems like flying over Lake Superior and calling it international waters.
It's considered part of the Atlantic.
Whose the FAGGOT who down dooted your comment and is too scared to explain why?
Nyet! I bump it u/#wideputin
Why were they dumping fuel on the drone? Were the Russians "pissing" on the US? Lol, I've never heard of aircraft dumping fuel on an enemy aircraft. This feels like it's loaded with comms.
The drone engine ingesting fuel would possibly malfunction (too rich a combustion mixture) and fail. Easy kill. A wingtip into the propeller implies to me a high degree of piloting skill. I don't believe for a second that this was some spontaneous rogue action. It was undoubtedly per new directives. An MQ-9 is not a cheap asset and it tweaks the U.S. nose in a way that the U.S. can only respond to by blustering and whining. The implied message is: "We can do this to your expensive drones and what are you going to do about it? Get into a shooting war over a fucking robot?"
Just to elaborate...
Fuel poured into the air intake stream will get compressed through at least one centrifugal stage and several axial stages before entering the combustion section.
During the compression stages the air and fuel mixture will heat up. Don't know the ignition point of JP-1 or the temperatures going through the compression stages, but if it doesn't blow the compressor stage right off the engine it would blow the exhaust section out the back.
I would love to see the video of this encounter. That MIG pilot will never have to buy a beer for the rest of his life.
Good analysis. Thanks! At the very least, the engine would exceed the turbine inlet temperature, with subsequent bad results.
Thank you for the explanation. Makes sense 👍
Okay gonna scour the IntelSlava and other channels for possible footage of this. Sounds like damn good piloting!
Keep us posted.
Not much, but just a short clip released by the Russians.
Biden is planning to release the footage, I am sure he is just waiting for the editing team to remove all the cool stuff the Russians did :)
Insert Greta Turdberg: "HOW DARE YOU".
you mean greta dumberg ...
Edited to turdberg :P
Wondering if this is part of the show. Did it really happen or is it a lie?
"Because i was inverted"
Drone should have gone inverted, that would show old Ivan who's boss!
Yes! Hey u/Qanaut, we need a Top Gun gif for the community, like the hi-5 one! 🐸🇺🇲
I think we can make that happen!
Ya! It's been a while since we introduced something fun for everyone!
heres a bunch to chose from
THINK OF THE ENVIRONMENT!
How can you 'unintend' escalation FFS. More made-up baby language for normies.
Hummm Let’s see … dump fuel release flares. I think they’ll be more pay back for Biden’s aggressions.
propaganda - wag the dog - psyop - it never ends. the brainwashed call it news.
Take out a drone = no harm, no foul.
I wonder what a reaper was doing there over the black sea?
Did the Russians prevent an operation or a false flag? Was it anything to do with Transnistria? Maybe that drone was going to attack Russian forces somewhere.
I thought the same. A false flag perhaps. Oops! Sorrrrryyyy! Putin don't play that game!
No wonder they were so salty!
I wonder what really happened?
Get them the fuck out of that region. Only reason to be there is provocation and drag us into something we don't want.
Kek, like supplying arms and providing target intel wont lead to miscalculation and unintended escalation.
Well I guess that doesnt make much sense since it seems like we intend to escalate.
Can we get out of Ukraine please? I dont see why Johnny down the street needs to go off there and get whacked. What exactly would be the explanation of what he was dying for? For karens with blue and gold flags in their Facebook profile?
Edit: Oh and were complaining about things being environmentally unsound...We're pushing for war and also bitching that the Russians dump fuel. We dont have a leg to stand on when were aiding their enemy, by doing so, we've entered the war and need to start thinking and expecting the consequences of that. Sending bullets and bombs to ukraine a bitching about a jet dumping fuel... Another democrat ran war from looks of things.
" This business will get out of control and we'll all be lucky to live through it" Adm Painter The Search for Red October... 😊
Who reported it? Trustworthy or stirring up more BS? Why is a US drone going over THERE? How come we're not minding our own damned business?
Heyy fren, this link is to The Guardian.
Yes, but WHO reported it? Truth? Compromised reporters? J6 was "reported." It didn't happen that way.
Ah I see. No way to tell.
What I hope: legit accident, on the part of the Russian pilot and drone pilot. Navigation error, equipment failure or marketing, slow reaction time, etc.
What I (unfortunately) suspect: Drone pilot following orders, crashes into Russian fighter. Blame the Russians, gives excuse to escalate.
What I think probable really happened: drone engaged fighter pilot (or pilot engaged drone) , dogfight ensues, both shot down, no one wants to admit defeat. Humans being humans. Soldiers being soldiers. Politicians being their usual selves and trying to cover their own arse.
What I don't suspect: Russian pilot decides to kamikaze unmanned drone, cuz 'muh Russia', or whatever the hell other fairy tale the PTB will spin.
How about "dumping fuel." That would be really stupid and dangerous.
this is poking the bear ffs
From https://t.me/UkraineHumanRightsAbuses/22050 on TG:
⚡️On 14 March 2023 in the morning, the Russian airspace control systems have detected an American MQ-9 unmanned aerial vehicle flying over the Black Sea near the Crimean Peninsula in the direction of the state border of the Russian Federation.
◽️ The drone flew with its transponders off, violating the boundaries of the temporary airspace regime established for the special military operation, communicated to all users of international airspace, and published in accordance with international standards.
◽️ Fighter jets of the air defence force on duty scrambled to identify the intruder. As a result of quick manoeuvring around 9.30 a.m. (Moscow time), the MQ-9 drone went into an unguided flight with a loss of altitude and collided with the water surface.
◽️ The Russian aircraft did not use on-board weapons, did not come into contact with the unmanned aerial vehicle, and returned safely to their home airfield.
"“Several times before the collision, the Su-27s dumped fuel on and flew in front of the MQ-9 in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner,” the US statement said."
Greta Thunberg was not available for comment.
In some headline of some fake news.
How dare Russia shoot down that drone that was perceived as a ''weather balloon'' and had the pronouns she/her written on it, clearly Russia and Putin are balloonophobic.
‘Sharp dissatisfaction’, if FJB can say this without slurring or repeating the first few syllables then let it stand.
Ummm. Sarcasm? or did you miss this was towards the reporters...handshake.
im only a new guy and my first post and my first comment i dont jknow how this shit works still learning appologise if i went off the deepend,.!
Grab a snorkel and listen a bit to get the lay of the land.
Joe says that, like the balloon, that drone has feelings and must be treated with empathy.
What kind of jet does Russia have that can collide with a US drone and not get damaged and fall out of the sky themselves? That actually sounds like complete bullshit.
