3D animation of the failed interception of the Tu-160 by Norwegian F-35s discussed on the net

Cartoonists of the CIAAS company from Norway have published on their YouTube channel a 3D animation of the interception of the Tu-160 strategic bombers of the Russian Aerospace Forces by the fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II fighters of the Norwegian Air Force. Netizens did not remain indifferent to this improvisation.

The footage shows two F-35As taking off elegantly from the runway and heading to intercept a pair of Tu-160s. The Norwegians fly up to the Russians flying at cruising speed and begin to accompany them, moving along a parallel course. One F-35A occupies a position to the left of the first Tu-160, and the other F-35A is on the right side of the second Tu-160.

For a while, Russians and Norwegians fly over the clouds. Then the Tu-160s simultaneously increase speed and fly away from the F-35A, getting rid of the intrusive escort. Norwegian pilots could not prevent this in any way. They also could not catch up with the Russians, since the maximum speed of the Tu-160 is 2200 km / h, and the F-35A is 1930 km / h. Therefore, they only helplessly watched the retreating "White Swans".

Users noted that the graphics in the animation are really good, but everything else is downright flawed. In a combat situation, interceptions are performed on oncoming or overlapping courses, and "catch-up" is played exclusively in peacetime. In addition, the Norwegian animators themselves have questioned the wisdom of the presence of expensive F-35A in the Norwegian Air Force.

    The couple spontaneously recalled that at that time (early 1970s) the Japanese science fiction cartoon "Ghost Ship" had struck by the detailing of military equipment (in particular, the F-4 Phantom 2 fighter-bombers, well known to us from the "Vietnamese newsreels")! winked
    Now, look how the "drawn" multi-artist has stepped for a sight for sore eyes (especially footage of the takeoff of a pair of F-35)! smile

    Ha. The cartoon war continues.

    But in fact, in peacetime, single-engine F35s (well, not interceptors at all) probably would not try hard to catch up with the 4-engine TR.
    We would be glad that the engine burns with the afterburner, waited, and would have dumped.
    The situation was similar in Japan.

    By the way, the quality of cartoons is not bad, obviously better than 5 years ago ...

    As far as I know, the TU-160 has a bluish flame in its engines, our engineers managed to achieve a more complete combustion of fuel, which made it possible to increase the engine power.

    In peacetime, it will be so. In the military, God forbid, the Tu-160 will be bombed without entering the air defense zone. And from possible pursuers they will leave on afterburner, on which they can move for 2 hours. Unlike most fighters, this figure is 15-20 minutes. That is, even the F-22, with their speed of 2500 km / h, will be able to approach only 20 km in 100 minutes, and then they will quickly lag behind. It is unlikely that this will be enough for launch.
