UAV RQ-4 Global Hawk


Named the purpose of the flight of the American RQ-4 Global Hawk off the coast of Crimea

In Russia, they “uncovered” the purpose of flying the RQ-4 Global Hawk near the Crimea.

Viktor Murakhovsky, editor-in-chief of Arsenal of the Fatherland, is confident that the Global Hawk American reconnaissance drones appear at the Russian borders to identify the capabilities of modern Russian air defense systems to detect and hit air targets.

Especially for «RIA News» Murakhovsky said that literally every day near the Crimea and the Kaliningrad region unmanned aerial vehicles Global Hawk are patrolling. The Americans reassure themselves that "we will include our complexes (C-400) in combat mode." The Russian military do not do this, so the reconnaissance devices can only take parameters of the radar on-duty.

A little earlier, Interfax reported that the United States drone RQ-4 Global Hawk (onboard number - 10-2043, call sign - FORTE10) took off from Sigonella airbase, located on the island of Sicily (Italy). Having flown to the Crimea, he flew for five hours along a line from the western tip of the peninsula to Tuapse.
