Breaking News: US Aircraft Intercepted by Two Russian Jets in the Black Sea & US Drone Crashes! Air Raid Sirens Activated in Ukraine! - The Real GS News

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A Russian Su-27 fighter jet collided with an American MQ-9 Reaper drone over the Black Sea on Tuesday, the U.S. military said. U.S. forces brought down the drone in international waters, the U.S. military’s European Command said in a statement, and the White House called the Russian plane’s intercept of the unmanned aircraft “reckless.” “Our MQ-9 aircraft was conducting routine operations in international airspace when it was intercepted and hit by a Russian aircraft, resulting in a crash and complete loss of the MQ-9,” U.S. Air Force General James Hecker, commander of U.S. Air Forces Europe and Air Forces Africa, said in a statement.In fact, this unsafe and unprofessional act by the Russians nearly caused both aircraft to crash,” Hecker said.

Russian intercepts in the area are common, but this one “is noteworthy because of how unsafe and unprofessional it was, indeed reckless that it was,” National Security Council spokesman John Kirby told journalists.

Two Russian fighter jets were involved in the incident, European Command said. During what the military called “an unsafe and unprofessional intercept” Tuesday morning, one of the Russian jets struck the drone’s propeller, which led to U.S. forces taking the drone down.

Before the collision, the jets dumped fuel on the drone and flew in front of it “in a reckless, environmentally unsound and unprofessional manner,” European Command said.

Kirby said President Biden had been briefed about the incident, and that the State Department would express Washington’s concerns to Moscow.

“We don’t need to have some sort of check-in with the Russians before we fly in international airspace. There’s no requirement to do that, nor do we do it,” he added.

      The MQ-9 “Reaper” is a hunter-killer drone, not just passive surveillance. One must wonder what its mission is over the Black Sea.

      The corruption and global intrusion stems from The WEF’s authoritarian 2001-2030 plan to encapsulate humanity in intrusive surveillance, credit upheaval, wide spread covid supply chain disruption. To force their hand in the hostile takeover of human rights and the pursuit of authoritarian control. At the expense of our constitutional birthright.

      The new Russian R-37M air-to-air missile has shown the highest combat effectiveness during its use as part of
      Russia’s special military operation in Ukraine, an informed source told Sputnik.

      “The R-37M missile has demonstrated the greatest efficiency during the special military operation. When the
      missile was used, the probability of hitting targets close to one was recorded – that is, one missile is enough
      for one Ukrainian military aircraft,” the source said.

      The source added that the R-37M has been used against various Ukrainian air targets and has been launched
      from Russian Su-35S multi-role fighters, the MiG-31BM interceptor aircraft, as well as the fifth generation Su-57 fighters.

      “R-37M missiles have SHOT DOWN UKRAINIAN Su-27 and MiG-29 fighters, :idea: Su-25 attack aircraft, :idea:
      Su-24M front-line bombers, :idea: low-flying helicopters :idea: and various DRONES, including Bayraktars,”
      the source told Sputnik.

      “At the same time, the missile has demonstrated HIGH EFFICIENCY in hitting targets, MANEUVERING WITH a LARGE
      The source emphasized that the new Russian R-37M missile has UNIQUE CHARACTERISTICS for an air-to-air missile in
      terms of range, speed, as well as the speed and altitude range of the targets being hit.

      The maximum launch range of the R-37M is about 300 kilometers (186 MILES); the altitude of potential targets
      is between 30 meters (98 feet) and 25 kilometers, while the missile’s maximum FLIGHT SPEED…………..
      …IS…..SIX TIMES the SPEED OF SOUND……which basically makes it HYPERSONIC. :idea:

      It was being used for sigint and the Russian fighter pissed on it like a dog on a hydrant.

      The US/CIA had better stand down or get creamed.
