British intercept Russian planes

British Typhoon aircrafts from the Royal Air Force (RAF) have intercepted two Russian bombers near British airspace.
The British Defense Ministry indicated Friday that the Tupolevs Tu-160 were spotted at Thursday Sept. 10th. Then where the
Typhoon warplanes scrambled at a Scottish RAF base to scare the Russian aircraft. In a time of increased tensions between
the West and Moscow are increasingly Russian aircraft intercepted.
Dutch QRA also scrambled.
At 1625Lt the Dutch QRA from Leeuwarden airbase were scrambled, and their mission was an CAP in the Dutch airspace (Delta2).
At 1644Lt the A scramble was converted to a Tango scramble, around 1714Lt the F-16's went to their homebase Leeuwarden.

Departure Papanikolis class U-214 submarine, Hellenic Navy

S-xxx U-214 Hellenic Navy .....

The Type 214 is a diesel-electric developed by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft GmbH (HDW). It features diesel propulsion with
an air-independent propulsion (AIP) system using polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells. The Type 214 submarine
is derived from the Type 212, but as an export variant it lacks some of the classified technologies of its smaller predecessor, the most
important of which is probably the non-magnetic steel hull, which makes the Type 212 submarine impossible to detect using
a Magnetic anomaly detector.


The Greece Papanikolis U214 class is equipped with a hoistable radar mast which does not penetrate the pressure hull of the submarine.
In the top of the radar mast the radar transmitter is installed. This transmitter is part of the SPHINX Radar System supplied by Thales
Defence Deutschland GmbH in Kiel. The radar sensor is a FMCW transceiver which can't be detected by ESM systems in medium terms.
This technology is so called LPI radar, which means "Low probability of intercept". The transmitting power is lower than the power of a
mobile phone but the resolution more precise compared to high power Pulse radar. Thales SPHINX radar is a tactical radar, designed
for submarines

The missing man formation
The missing man can be carried out in different variants. The most common is where four aircraft mostly (fighters) in the so called
"finger four" formation flying, the aircraft flying in a V-shape, the leader flies to the point and his wingman left behind him.
The second man of the flight is flying right behind the leader, and his wingman right back there again
from the front view, the left leg of the V so longer than the right.
This formation flying low enough over to be clearly seen and when it's right above the site of the memorial,
the second man pulls up abruptly and flies straight upwards. The rest of the formation retains its rate until all the planes are out of sight.
