There was data on the transfer of nuclear weapons from the United States to Turkey


In the very near future, a special flight should fly from the USA to Turkey. On board the military transport aircraft C-17A Globemaster III, according to some assumptions, there may be nuclear weapons.


Unusual in this whole story are two points. Firstly, the board has already been assigned the highest degree of priority. This means that the plane passed a special technical training. Secondly, a flight with a range of 11 thousand kilometers will be direct, that is, without intermediate landings. For this, the machine will need to refuel twice in the air.

The C-17A Globemaster III will take off from the US Air Force Kirtland Air Base in New Mexico and will arrive at the Turkish Incirlik Air Force Base, which is used by NATO forces. According to a number of sources, about 50 tactical nuclear charges are still stored there.

At the same time, several months ago, the media discussed the probable speedy export of American weapons of mass destruction from Turkey.

It could be assumed that the special aircraft S-17A flies to Turkey empty, so that later it can take back nuclear weapons to the United States. However, this assumption does not explain the intention to make a non-stop flight with refueling in the air.

    From the facts, only that the flight does fly out and it is nonstop ... where did the nuclear ammunition come from, God knows ..... Maybe they lack medical masks and toilet paper there.

    Each landing of an airplane at the airport is about 20 thousand dollars per hour. So the departure of the tanker from Iceland and Germany may be cheaper. Anyway, after all, there is.

      The departure of two tankers, the return of two tankers also costs money. Fuel costs, take-offs, landings.

        Tankers are already at bases in Iceland and Germany. At military bases. From take-off for an hour is not so burdensome.

          From the point of view of the economy, it would be more profitable to fly to the same Iceland, change crew and go to Turkey, without any refueling.
