(Patriot Insider) – A new report from The Western Journal has revealed that Chinese Air Force cargo jets have landed, carrying arms to Europe over the weekend, which serves as a reminder that China still possesses a long reach into the affairs of the world.
A total of six Y-20 cargo planes were first tracked entering European air space just before landing in Belgrade, which is the capital city of Serbia, according to a report from The Drive.
The report then went on to point out one very unusual measure, which is perhaps reflective of the current conflict that Europe is embroiled in at the moment.
“Observers noted at least some of the planes had the covers for their chaff and flare countermeasures systems removed,” The Drive stated in its report.
“It looks very much like they may have been equipped with live countermeasures, which would be anticipatory of some sort of potential threat. What that threat would have been isn’t clear,” the report continued.
Interesting find by @Prova_61 👍 … In fact I have never seen before this, what appears to be the hatch removed for the chaff & flare dispenser boxes.

The report then said that the presence of the planes would have been notable all by itself.
“The Y-20s’ appearance raised eyebrows because they flew en masse as opposed to a series of single-aircraft flights,” The Drive’s report pointed out. “The Y-20′s presence in Europe in any numbers is also still a fairly new development.”
The report then went on to say that the Chinese planes were carrying HQ-22 surface-to-air missile systems that would be used by the nation of Serbia.
Aleksandar Radic, who works as a Serbian military analyst stated, “The Chinese carried out their demonstration of force,” according to a report by the Associated Press.
Aleksandar Vucic, president of Serbia, stated on Saturday that he will display “the newest pride” of his nation’s military on either Tuesday or Wednesday.

The Drive then said, “This large-scale sortie to deliver military equipment to Belgrade is yet another confirmation of the strategic airlift capability the PLAAF has obtained via its burgeoning Y-20 fleet, as well as an expanding operational knowledge as to how to put it to use.”
The report then added, “the fact that a higher-end Chinese air defense system will be operating in Europe is another issue that will likely come to the chagrin of Serbia’s neighbors.”
A report from the Associated Press then discussed the concerns that exist about Serbia potentially becoming aggressive against the small country of Kosovo, which used to be part of Serbia.
China, Russia, and Serbia do not recognize Kosovo as a nation. The United States, along the vast majority of Europe, do.
Folks, there’s a lot going on globally right now, which is why it is imperative we have someone at the helm of the U.S. who is capable of discharging the duties of the office of president. Biden is not fit for duty. We are at an alarming point in history.
Let’s hope there aren’t more wars breaking out across the planet. It’s the last thing we all need after the pandemic.
