Russian Sukhoi Fighter Jets Test USS Donald Cook’s Capability with Unarmed Flybys Again

USS Donald Cook crew never learn its lessons about provoking Russia through needless naval exercise near the latter’s border.

More than a year ago, the same US warship instigated a firefight with the Russians by conducting naval exercise in the Black Sea, where unarmed Sukhoi warplanes disabled the Aegis Missile System on the warship causing the crew to disembark at the nearest port.

It happened again, this time in the Baltic Sea.

In one of the most aggressive actions in recent memory, Russian warplanes conducted “simulated attacks” on the a U.S. Navy vessel in the Baltic Sea on Tuesday, repeatedly flying within 30 feet of the ship, according to a defense official.

Sailors aboard the destroyer Donald Cook said the aircraft flew low enough to create wake in the sea waters surrounding the ship, and the ship’s commanding officer said the incident was “unsafe and unprofessional,” the defense official said.

“This was more aggressive than anything we’ve seen in some time,” according to the defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because U.S. officials have not officially disclosed the incidents.

Sailors aboard the ship described the Sukhoi Russian Su-24 as “wings clean,” meaning there were no visible bombs or armaments on the aircraft, the defense official said.

The nature of the overflight as a “simulated attack” may violate a 1973 treaty between the U.S. and Russia that specifically prohibits this type of maneuver, the defense official said.

The maneuver was one of several aggressive moves by Russian aircraft on Monday and Tuesday.

Shortly after leaving the Polish port of Gdynia, near Gdansk, on Monday, the Donald Cook at was sea in international waters conducting flight operations with a Polish helicopter, part of routine joint training exercises with the NATO ally.

During those flight operations, a Russian Sukhoi Su-24 combat aircraft appeared and conducted about 20 overflights, coming within 1,000 yards of the ship at an altitude of about 100 feet, the defense official said. In response, the commander of the Donald Cook suspended flight operations.

Russian Aerospace is testing if USS Donald Cook has upgraded its Aegis Missile Shield System. It looks like, it hasn’t yet.

Nevertheless, the ongoing battle for global control is reaching new levels as the fiat financial crash is proceeding undeterred.

Similar maneuvers were done by US naval strike group in the West Philippine Sea to provoke China which ended up its own humiliation after a Chinese sub appeared too close to them without prior detection.

  1. I don’t believe that the US can provoke Russia on their border, then complain that the Russia SUKHOI FIGHTER jets were flying too close, does it need anyone to tell them that THEY NEED THEIR MOMMY. the real answer is for the US to, go home and play with your Toy Soldiers.

    1. DEAD-ON brother…They remind of a stupid dog playing around on a Freeway loaded with 18 wheelers during “Rush Hour”…Playing “Russian” Roulet with 5 rounds in the chambers (Out of 6!)…True “Idiots-in-Action”!

  2. Those “excessively close” SU-24 pilots appear to be very brave or not to wise. What would have happened if the sailors were practicing post apocalyptic (primitive) communication techniques with homing pigeons and sucked in a pigeon? Would they have the time or altitude to bail out or eject that close to the deck? How would they defend their actions “I was flying TOO CLOSE and sucked in a bird”? What would be the sailors version to this defense “why were you flying in to close,intimidation”?

  3. TODAYS MILITARY SHIPS WEATHER AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER OF A DESTROYER THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN SITTING DUCKS ON THE WATER, BLIND FOR A POSSIBLE ATTACK WEATHER A SILENT SUBMARINE, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ELECTRONIC WEAPONS THAT RUSSIA, CHINA, OR FOR THAT MATTER ANY OTHER NATION STRONG ENOUGH TO BE WILLING TO CHALLANGE THE AMRICAN SEA POWER.

    THE STUPID JEWS WERE TOO BUSY DISMANTALING OUR REPUBLIC THROWING STOLEN MONEY LEFT AND RIGHT WITH BOTH HANDS, WHILE RUSSIA AND CHINA UNDER GOD’S PROTECTION WERE PREPAREING THEMSELVES AGAISNT THE LYING JEWS IN AMERICA THEIR REPUTATION WELL KNOWN BY NOW AS THE LYING JEW THAT HAS AMERICA UNDER SIGE FOR MORE THAN 100+ YEARS
