Americans Wet Their Pants! Russian Aircraft Used NATO Ships as Simulated Targets

00 Russian Air Force fighters. 04.05.14

According to TVN24.pl, citing Sputniknews.com, Russians air units used NATO ships in the Black Sea as simulated targets in their exercises. On 3 March, Su-30 and Su-24 bombers based in the Crimea made a simulated attack on the American cruiser USS Vicksburg and the Turkish frigate Turgut Reis. The purpose of the exercise was to test tactics used to “overcome air defence” of cruisers and frigates, which meant that they tested antishipping tactics. Finally, the Russian aircraft buzzed the NATO ships. Exercises of this scale against “enemy” units are very rare. In the past, most were instances of individual aircraft doing such, such as in April 2014, when an Su-24 flew very close to an American destroyer in the Black Sea. The commander of the USS Donald Cook said that it was a “provocative” act.

It looked like the Americans peed their pants in fright twice. They like handing it out, but like all bullies, they don’t like taking it. Let’s not be coy… the American naval superiority means NOTHING in the Black Sea. With that out, the intheatre American forces are inferior to the intheatre Russian forces. Therefore, any noise from the USA is nothing but the gumming of a toothless and bootless Rubber Lion. Russia holds the trumps… and Vova has the black belt, doesn’t he?
