Greek media: The appearance of seven Tu-142 at once surprised the US fleet


The Russian Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft flying in international airspace over the Barents and Norwegian seas was unexpectedly intercepted by F-22 US and F-16 Norway fighters in the immediate vicinity of Russian borders. Foreign aircraft were dangerously close to the Tu-142. This is reported by the Greek resource Pentapostagma.


According to some reports, Russian aircraft previously notified the US Navy of its appearance. Only 7 Tu-142 aircraft simulated a massive attack on the American fleet. Three of them acted on the Barents and Norwegian seas, and four more - in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean. The simultaneous deployment of seven Tu-142 long-range anti-submarine aircraft surprised the US Navy - it became a unique event of its kind.

Греческие СМИ: Появление сразу семи Ту-142 удивило флот США

Three Tu-142MK anti-submarine aircraft made regular flights over the Barents and Norwegian Seas. At some sections of the route, they were accompanied by Norwegian F-16 fighters. In addition, 4 Tu-142MK flew in the neutral waters of the North Pacific, where they also came into contact with the F-22

- says the Russian media reports.


According to Pentapostagma experts, one of the reasons for using such a large number of anti-submarine aircraft could be a demonstration by Russia of its power and determination to attack the US Navy, if the situation requires it. In fact, the Russian military has shown its willingness to deliver an unexpected blow to the U.S. Navy.

The Greek publication notes that for a long time, American military aircraft are increasingly approaching the Russian border. This is of great concern to the Kremlin and is forcing Russia to send Russian fighter jets to intercept American bombers and spy planes.

    Well, naturally. So that the service doesn’t seem like honey to them. A hint to the Yankees that not everything is permissible and unpunished.

    Yeah. The Russians had warned in advance that this was just a training exercise and that the "partners" did not need to stockpile underwear and diapers.

    The more they will be surprised, the more likely that we will be less likely to arrange provocations. China is not surprised. Because they know that the Chinese do not think for a long time - they answer immediately. India has already felt it.
