Caution! This information was diligently covered up and suppressed in the US and the West in general.
The State Department acknowledged that the crew of the destroyer – USS Donald Cook – has been gravely demoralized ever since their vessel was flown over in the Black Sea by a Russian Sukhoi-24 (Su-24) fighter jet.
The USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is a 4th generation guided missile destroyer whose key weapons are Tomahawk cruise missiles with a range of up to 2,500 kilometers.
The US destroyer is equipped with the most recent Aegis Combat System that can ensure the detection, tracking and destruction of hundreds of targets at the same time. For protection, it carries more than fifty anti-aircraft missiles of various types.
On April 10, 2014, the USS Donald Cook entered the waters of the Black Sea and on April 12 a Russian Su-24 tactical bomber flew over the vessel triggering an incident that, according to several media reports, completely demoralized its crew, so much so that the Pentagon issued a protest.
Meanwhile, the Russian Su-24 that buzzed the USS Donald Cook carried neither bombs nor missiles but only a basket mounted under the fuselage which, according to the Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, contained a Russian electronic warfare device called Khibiny.
As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up – or about to be – with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control.
The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft – unarmed – repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.
After that, the 4th generation destroyer immediately set sail towards a port in Romania.
Since that incident, which the mainstream media have carefully covered up despite the widespread reactions sparked among defense industry experts, no US ship has ever approached Russian territorial waters again.
According to some specialized media, 27 sailors from the USS Donald Cook requested to be relieved from active service.”
So what happened in the Black Sea?
Having been out of circulation in the 1990s, the Russian navy fleet lost the edge it enjoyed during Soviet days. Restoring the above-water fleet was a very expensive and lengthy proposition.
Precious time was lost and trying to simply catch up would be risky for Russia. But Russia had advantages in other areas, one of them being submarines, much more sophisticated than those of the US.
Another area was the secret Russian electronic weapon capable of jamming the most sophisticated American military electronics, thus rendering the entire giant US fleet useless. These relatively inexpensive are proven to put Russia at an advantage over the our boys at sea.
When USS Donald Cook entered the Black Sea, Russians decided to send the US Navy a message. This was also a warning not to get any ideas about interfering in the Crimea, which was about to have a referendum to secede from Ukraine.
This is just another version of Russian built anti-electronics weapons… It’s a very small but precise version of the EMP.
And as I will soon show you… The Russian EMP is far more dangerous than ISIS or any other Islamic terrorist.
