Russian Navy Blockades Downed US Drone

Russian Navy Blockades Downed US Drone

The Russian Navy has located the downed US MQ-9 "Reaper" Drone in the Black Sea, about 50 nautical miles from Sevastopol and has created a blockade around the crash site.

The Russian Navy salvage Vessel Kumma is enroute to the location.


It is reportedly going to attempt to retrieve the drone, which is said to be under about 90 meters of water.

Moscow has S-400 systems (air defense - cutting down trees in the city including in parks). Article says "Russia is preparing for a total war with NATO".

International Criminal Court )ICC) and arrest warrant for President Putin

We salvaged a CCP sub in far deeper Pacific waters. Ninety meters isn't deep at all for the Russians to reach, n that drone is much smaller. Only fair, as Obama already gave one to the Persians. I'm hoping the Russians can find some kind of proof on that thing to thoroughly out the warmongers in the District of Criminals.
# The U.S. just doesn't learn ?Garyhines 2023-03-17 08:50
The United States doesn't learn very well. The United States are considering sending another Drone over the Black Sea in the coming days .so they can piss off Russia. Fyi Xi is going to Russia next week to meet with Putin . To show support but I think it's too get weapons sent to russia.they both know what the United States wants and that's all out war.will see how this goes
# Moskva DrownedGodzHammer 2023-03-17 08:00
Isn’t this location closer to shore than where the Moskva was sunk? If this is truly that closes I wonder why Ukraine isn’t sending anymore anti-ship missiles in that direction. Maybe they’re out of drones or too busy on the fronts?

I'm thinking a missile battery's lifespan could be measured in minutes along that coastline. President Putin was pissed, n those Harpoon missiles don't fit in a backpack. I don't the Uke Nazis can get those missiles to the Southern coast, now. Especially since the Wagner group has completely encircled Bakmut.

International airspace starts at 12 miles from shore. So being 50 miles away is actually very polite. America has every right to fly 12.5 miles off shore if they want and Russian aircraft routinely get this close to Alaska.

This was in my opinion a way to force the drone down to the water without destroying the mainframe or sensitive equipment. Dropping fuel on a turbofan engine probably smothered fuel intake to the turbine resulting in the drone being splashed.
Russia wanted this drone in one piece and it appears they will get it that way save for the destruction with the impact with water.
I always felt Russian pilots were in TOM GUN league. They have proved that time and time again. A message was sent to the White House in splashing the drone.
Why was the transponder off and why was the drone carrying missiles? It sure was a long way off course from American shores.

Cant get any funnier then that.
ALMOST as funny as the time Iran grabbed one a few years ago. Remember the time they forced it to land on THEIR territory. Same model as this one? I aint sure but it was just as sophisticated that's for certain. And they got it down in perfect condition too. Better then having to fish it outa the ocean.
So I guess Iran did it better. LOL

Russian Military to Recover U.S. Drone in Black Sea...Lindsay Graham Wants USA to Shoot Down Russian Aircraft

Nikolai Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation, has announced that Russia will attempt to retrieve the American MQ-9 drone that sank in the Black Sea. The Pentagon said Tuesday that the drone was flying over international air space when a Russian fighter jet intercepted it and crashed the craft into the water. The incident was one of the first direct military confrontations between US and Russian forces since the Ukraine war began. It also escalated a dispute over the Black Sea, which lies in eastern Europe and is surrounded by NATO members, including Russia. Relations between Washington and Moscow have deteriorated over the past year, with heightened fears of an all-out conflict that could involve other NATO nations like Turkey.

General James Hecker, who oversees US air operations in Europe and Africa, said the MQ-9 drone was conducting routine operations in international airspace when it was intercepted by a Russian aircraft and crash-landed into the Black Sea. Gen. Hecker said the drone was carrying out its mission in a way that is authorized under international law, but he declined to answer further questions about its specific mission.

In a press conference Wednesday, Patrushev said Russia is willing to do its part to retrieve the drone’s wreckage, but he did not provide details about how the country would go about doing that. He referred questions about the debris to his Foreign Intelligence Service.

+23 # Discovery!Gulfcaptain 2023-03-16 19:35
The Russians recovered the US drone and discovered a shocking payload in it's inner compartment.

Inside was a pair of red high heel "dinner" shoes, a blond wig, red "come hither" lipstick, a copy of the last training seminar issued by SVB on "proper gender pronouns" a full vial of hormone suppressing drugs and a pink frock.

Included with this noxious payload was several flash drives of WOKE promotional videos from Silicon Valley and Signature Banks.

Russia plans on making a statement where it is expected that they will return the drone as soon as possible since it has been determined that the drone has "no redeemable value" and that it posses a national threat if transported inside Russia.

Germany has stated that in the interests of "fairness, diversity and equality" they will gladly accept the drone and it's payload.

Shockingly, Russian defense scientists have discovered the drone was powered by solar panels and estrogen pills. Once the Russian fighter blocked the sun, the "estrogen backup generator" kicked in. This had an unexpected effect that brought the drone down. It seems that the estrogen inside the generator worked against the movement of the propellor and steering systems which "must always have its way" and "never stops to get directions".

In a side note, the manufacturer of the "Reaper" drone plans on renaming it the "weeper" drone which better suits it's internal characteristics. The Pentagon has placed an order for 2,500 more of these drones and plans on giving them to Ukraine.

U.S. Special Ops Pursuing Deep-Fake Psychological Warfare Advantage

The United States has begun pursuing deep-fake psychological warfare as a new weapon to conduct internet propaganda and deception campaigns online, according to federal contracting documents. The Special Operations Command, which fights from the shadows of the world’s most lethal nations, is aiming to use the technology to generate messages and influence operations in peer-to-peer environments through nontraditional channels.

Specifically, the documents say that the command is working on methods to create “deep fake” videos using AI software. These videos — based on AI algorithms — are difficult to identify from real video and can be easily spread across the internet without anyone realizing they’re fake.

Which is 2,700 ft. Roughly half a mile. That might be an issue for the Kumma but not an insurmountable one. I've read about and seen a documentary about this ship. She is unique, was built in 1912 and survived the siege of Leningrad. "In October 2009 she received the British-built submarine rescue submersible Pantera Plus, capable of operating to depths of up to 1,000 metres (3,300 ft)" (Wikipedia quote) this ship's entire history is ridiculous in terms of what and how much she's salvaged. I don't think bringing up a little drone like the MQ-9 at 2700 ft will be much of a problem.

Quoting motoman52:

"I give up US Navy sailors"

Those " I give up US Navy Sailors" were ordered deep into waters claimed by Iran under borders of "weapons hold" with no backup and when they called for help they're request was denied. Seems their pussy "captain "didn't want to start an international incident. So those " I give up US Sailors" essentially got thrown to the wolves, given orders that they were not under any circumstances to defend themselves and left a twist in the breeze.

Interesting Internet Comment:

I worked on and off set in Hollywood for years and I'll tell you right now the Pentagon video of the 'Drone Downing' is CGI.

100% electronic BS. The damaged propeller is hilarious. Funnier than the fake fuel dump.
The "fuel release" does look strange. I'm no expert. Just some data for consideration.

Jim Stone, who could well be considered an "expert" on computer graphics, is adamant that the video is totally fake and was made by a common core techie.

He points specifically to the propeller and the fact that in one part of the video it is white, and then later it has a yellow stripe. Just like that. A change. In mid flight.

By the way, if anyone is interested, he's been having a hell of a time staying on the net. His new IP address is
