The Americans observed the arrival of inert warheads of Russian ICBMs to Kamchatka

On Wednesday, December 9, under the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a training session on the management of Russia's nuclear strategic forces, cruise and intercontinental ballistic missiles were launched against conditional targets at the Pemboy and Kura ranges. The United States became interested in Russian tests and organized tracking of the arrival of warheads on targets.

The United States Air Force sent a strategic reconnaissance aircraft RC-135S Cobra Ball to the Kamchatka and Bering Sea regions to monitor the landing of inert warheads of ICBMs. He was accompanied by a KC-135R tanker aircraft, which refueled the reconnaissance aircraft over the waters of the Bering Sea.

The RC-135S, which took off from Alaska, patrolled the Russian border for several hours. The aircraft is able to track the trajectory of a rocket at a distance of up to half a thousand kilometers, and also quite accurately record the place of the object's fall.

All the combat elements that make up the nuclear defense of the Russian Federation - air, land and sea - took part in the exercises to control nuclear forces. Thus, the strategic missile carriers Tu-160 and Tu-95MS, the strategic nuclear submarine missile carrier Karelia, as well as the mobile missile system Yars were involved in the maneuvers.

    The United States is interested in Russian tests

    the guys try on themselves.

    We are not conducting the exercises correctly. It is necessary for a pair of Tu-160s to work out strikes on California, over the Crimea, so to speak, with Kaliningrad. This will be parity.

    What's the news? Stripes waltz at the Kura for almost 6 decades with each rocket launch. And they come 2-3 days before the start. Is this news to you ???

    About how. Earlier in the Ukinsky Bay, Vanderberg was hanging around when there was acceptance of something that would bring heat and light. The AN26, AN12 and TU16 planes were allocated separately at the altitudes and were not allowed to write telemetry. NO planes were certainly not in the surveyor. and this scow is more than GAGARIN. constantly stuck there. was like a landmark in a neutral car. Times are changing

    That's why the Air Force and the Air Force to follow.
    This is not much news.

    In 18, a meteor exploded at 6 kilotons off the coast of the Far East, and the Americans with the Yaps even detected and filmed. And ours - no, no.
    That was really interesting.
