"Russia turns Black-Sea into a "Mighty foothold" The 4th gen. Donald Cook was deaf and blind for 90 min.s

"Russia turned the Crimea into a mighty foothold"

Breedlove: Russia turned the Crimea in the "mighty foothold."

Chief of Allied Forces in Europe Filip Bridlav said that the Crimea to Russia has greatly changed the balance of power in the Black Sea for NATO and Russian weapons now threatens the presence of Alliance ships in the region.

According to Bridlav, significant changes primarily related to the deployment in the Crimea Russian long-range anti-aircraft strike systems that directly threatens the presence of NATO ships in the Black Sea. "These systems defeats, beginning with anti-aircraft missiles, which cover almost half of the Black Sea, finishing systems attack ground targets, which stretched along its coast - all this creates a powerful foothold in the Crimea to project force in the region," - said the commander in chief NATO in Europe.

He also noted the "professionalism" of the Russian military in the region, referring to the Russian aircraft flying over American ships coming into the Black Sea. "We have seen different types of interaction in the Black Sea. For the most part it can be called a professional "- said Breedlove. At the end of December 2014 Chief of Staff of the Russian Armed Forces, Army General Valery Gerasimov said that in the Crimea created a complete defense group, which includes ships, fighter-interceptors and ground-based stationary systems.

According to him, the creation of groups of troops in the Crimean peninsula is a priority for the General Staff.

What they didn't tell you:

This past April, something very strange happened to the USS Donald Cook in the Black Sea. In response to having an American ship in their backyard, Russia sent unarmed bomber SU-24 to fly around the destroyer. The Aegis radar on the Donald Cook worked properly and gave proper warning of the approaching Russian aircraft. 

Suddenly all their targeting screens went down! The Aegis radar was completely taken out leaving the USS Donald Cook and turning into a sitting duck! The SU-24 then did 12 simulated missile attacks on the ship flying right over the deck of the ship. All efforts to get the radar working during the attack failed. After the mock attack was over, the Russian aircraft flew away and “Donald Cook” was rushed into a port in Romania.

The Aegis radar system of the US Navy was supposedly the most sophisticated radar in the world. It’s clear now that the Russians have technology so advanced the Aegis radar is now a complete joke and totally obsolete.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that the Su-24 was equipped with the Khibiny EW system and was able to neutralize the AEGIS phased array radar target tracking capabilities while the ship's crew was unable to re-boot the system. It is not clear whether the jammer affected the radar system itself or only the computer-based component or either both at the same time.

The 4th generation Donald Cook was deaf and blind for 90 minutes.
