Ukraine Operation: Russia Called Out American Bluff with Electronic Warfare

Who knows if this article is just blowing smoke but any country stupid enough to outsource their military electronics to other countries is probably in an extremely poor position to take over the world.  So one must ask the question if we’ve been set up to start and lose WWIII.   Having any one autonomous nation in a dominant position is inconsistent with the banksters’ long term plans for global governance.   Our military is needed to destroy the capacity of other countries to be independent, but ultimately we must be brought to heel as well.  Echo chambers like the pentagon must be very easy to manipulate with a few well placed moles.  Neocons certainly serve that purpose (wittingly or unwittingly) to a tee.

The crew of the Donald Cook American destroyer was demoralised by the encounter with the Russian bomber SU-24, which used radio-electronic weaponry. With several advanced systems, this is an area that Russia enjoys a distinct tactical edge.

On April 10, the Donald Cook, entered Black Sea waters and within 2 days, the Russian tactical bomber Su-24 “buzzed” the American destroyer. A few media outlets reported that Donald Cook’s crew was demoralised by this encounter and 27 American sailors resigned from the navy. What petrified the American crew so much?

Donald Cook is a 4th generation fleet destroyer of the US Navy. Its key weapon is the Tomahawk cruise missile with flying range up to 2500 km, which can carry nuclear explosives. In standard and striking set-ups the vessel carries 56 or 96 such missiles correspondingly.

The destroyer is equipped with the latest Aegis ballistic missile defence system military. Among other functions it can centralise the air defence forces of all the ships where it is installed in a common network, therefore allowing for tracking and shooting up hundreds of targets at the same time. Four huge standard radar aerials, which can substitute for a few ordinary radars, are located on the sides of the deck erection. About 50 intercept missiles of different classes are installed together with the Tomahawks in the universal launching installations on the bow and by the stern.

The Su-24 Russian tactical bomber which approached the Donald Cook carried no bombs or missiles but a container with the Khibiny radio-electronic military system. Having approached the destroyer, Khibiny was use to switch off the American destroyer’s radar, battle control circuits and data exchange systems. In other words, it turned off the whole Aegis by remote control. After this, the Su-24 simulated a missile attack at the “blind and deaf” ship, and repeated the manoeuvre 12 times.

When the Russian fighter left, the Donald Cook rushed to a Romanian port and never approached Russian waters again. …
