The American RQ-4 Global Hawk conducted reconnaissance deep into the Crimea 12 hours before the explosions in warehouses

An American strategic drone carried out deep reconnaissance of the Crimea 12 hours before the explosions in warehouses.

The Northrop Grumman RQ-4B Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicle with registration number 11-2046 and the call sign "Forte10" was at an altitude of about 16 kilometers, which is more than enough to carry out reconnaissance within a radius of 300 kilometers, while the board, judging by the data of the Flightradar 24 service, was at a distance of 250 kilometers from the warehouses where the sabotage occurred.

Experts draw attention to the fact that an unmanned aerial vehicle may well be involved in the transfer of information for subsequent sabotage at military depots, where ammunition bursts and the fire stopped only a day later.

There are no direct indications in this regard, however, the Northrop Grumman RQ-4B Global Hawk drone systems are capable of carrying out deep reconnaissance over vast distances, while the aircraft itself, judging by its trajectory, just carried out targeted reconnaissance of this region.

At the moment, it is not possible to assess the damage caused by the explosion of warehouses in the Dzhankoy district, however, judging by the fact that the explosions of ammunition lasted a day, as stated by the head of the Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, the consequences of sabotage are very serious.
