From A Closer Look On Syria

- Russia scrambles the controls of the aircraft carrier ’Ronald Reagan’ and the 7th fleet - VOLTAIRE NETWORK | 11 NOVEMBER 2015
- On the 27th October 2015, a Tupolev 142 made numerous approaches to the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan, which was working on manœuvres with the 7th fleet and the South Korean Navy to the East of the peninsula. The Tupolev got as close as 500 feet from the aircraft carrier without either the carrier or the 7th fleet being able to react, which proved that Russia is now able to destroy a NATO flagship.

- "Apparently, the Americans have not forgotten the April 2014 incident when one Su-24 practically 'blacked out' all of the electronics on board the newest American destroyer Donald Cook," the source said.
- According to documentary film Crimea-the road to the Motherland (Крым. Путь на Родину) , Russia deployed in Crimea modern coast defense missile system Bastion, and made sure it is visible from space. They than illuminated Tomahawk-equipped Donald Cook, with Crimea in the range, with "Bastion" radar. At that point, Donald Cook turned back. According to Putin interview in the film, low-flying overflight was a local initiative and he was not informed; he described it as 'children play '/'hooliganism'. Some sources say SU 24 was unarmed.

- Khibiny – carried by SU-24 and SU-30 fighter bombers and operational since 2013. This was the system which was used to jam the radar systems of the US navy destroyer Donald Cooke in a notorious incident which took place during the peak of the Crimean crisis in 2014. TASS has provided the first semi-official account of what happened
- Russia’s cutting-edge weaponry capable of ‘blinding’ enemy's army - TASS, April 19, 2017
- The Khibiny EW system differs from the previous-generation technology by its increased power and intelligence capability. It can assist in aircraft weapons control, create a deceptive electronic environment and help break through an enemy’s layered air defenses.
- This is what happened with the US destroyer Donald Cook in 2014 when the warship’s air defense systems locked on a Russian Su-24 plane.
- The data appearing on the warship’s radars put the crew at a loss: the aircraft would now and then disappear from radar screens or suddenly change its location and speed or create electronic clones of additional targets while the destroyer’s information and weaponry control combat systems were actually disabled. Considering that the warship was in the Black Sea some 12,000 kilometers away from the US territory, it was not difficult to imagine what the destroyer’s crew felt.
- Russia able to 'neutralise US warships', report claims - Daily Mail, April 19, 2017
- Front line bomber Sukhoi Su-24 flew around the ship, which the report was equipped with the latest US defence system Aegis, the newsreader announced. The report then claims to have found an account of the incident by one of the ship's crew on social media revealing how there was 'mysticism' onboard as the ship's locating devices shut down.
- 'The pride of our fleet became our shame,' the crew member is reported as saying - though their identity is not revealed.

- While in operational proximity to the Russian naval base of the Baltic Fleet, the principle of freedom of navigation of US Navy destroyer does not negate the principle of freedom of aeronautics of Russian aircraft, according to Russian MOD Konashenkov.

- USS Fitzgerald Collision Likely Caused by ‘Human Error,’ Not Tech - Fortune, June 17, 2017
- Tom Dyer, a naval expert who spoke to Wired, says it’s likely that both the U.S Navy vessel and the container ship carried radar-based collision avoidance systems. Much like the systems in advanced automobiles, those systems are designed to not only see a ship’s surroundings, but also calculate whether it’s headed for a crash. It’s possible those alert systems failed, Dyer says. But it’s far more likely a human pilot or captain on one of the ships made one or more missteps that proved impossible to correct. “Maneuvering vessels of this size is not easy,” Dyer told Wired, “and they don’t respond quickly if someone makes a mistake.”

- A former Royal Navy officer said that the movements of the Guang Zhou Wan, a Chinese commercial vessel, could be significant in explaining the fatal crash off Singapore that left at least one sailor dead. A further nine are missing. Tracking data indicates that the tanker that collided with USS John S McCain was followed by the Chinese vessel, which appeared to steer out of the way before the incident.

- Is The U.S. Navy Being Truthful With Its Report On Recent Crash Incidents? - ZeroHedge, November 4, 2017
- The military is examining whether compromised computer systems were responsible for one of two U.S. Navy destroyer collisions with merchant vessels that occurred in recent months, Vice Admiral Jan Tighe, the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, said on Thursday.
- Naval investigators are scrambling to determine the causes of the mishaps, including whether hackers infiltrated the computer systems of the USS John S. McCain ahead of the collision on Aug. 21, Tighe said during an appearance at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
- Official report -crew errors, no impression of cyber attack.
