A pair of Tu-160s worked out a training strike against Great Britain


On March 29, 2021, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation casually reported that a pair of strategic bombers-missile carriers Tu-160 long-range aviation of the Aerospace Forces conducted a planned flight over the water area of ​​the Barents and Norwegian Seas. They were accompanied by high-altitude all-weather fighter-interceptors MiG-31 of the naval aviation of the Navy. The flight lasted 8 hours and passed over neutral waters in compliance with international law governing the use of airspace.


However, observers monitoring the movement of aircraft have restored a more accurate picture of what happened. Therefore, it can be assumed that the two Russian "strategists" have worked out a training strike against Great Britain.


In addition, Russian anti-submarine aviation did not sit idle that day. A pair of DPLS Tu-142 of the Northern Fleet flew to the Faro-Icelandic NATO border (GIUK gap). During the flight over the Norwegian Sea, F-16 fighters of the Norwegian Air Force took off twice to escort Russian aircraft, and a pair of Typhoons of the British Air Force appeared over the North Sea in the sky.

Conducting two such air operations at once should demonstrate to our potential "partners" the seriousness of Moscow. Russia has repeatedly called on the West to stop reconnaissance and other military aircraft near the Russian border. But it is highly doubtful that NATO countries and their allies will heed the voice of reason.

    England is the main customer of the sanctions and containment of Russia. Practicing strikes against this plague barracks should be on an ongoing basis.

    Animals need to hint that the island can be melted in one raid from a distance of a couple or more thousand kilometers, and that the island has not yet melted - as long as such is the will of the Russians

        I, unlike waffles, served in the army, yes Kirilushka?)
        After all, Kirilushka and the army are mutually exclusive things. Although girls are already being taken to military schools. So it's not even your gender that matters

                happens. Although I saw a girl in the army with the rank of corporal. So it may be, but you certainly surprised me.

                I hope it will save me to be in the same trench with you. I'm too squeamish

                  I saw "girls" and officers in the army. What's so surprising about that?

                      What touched me what? In Russia, it seems like a mandatory military conscription. What's so surprising about that?

                    During my service in the army, I had only needles and thread in my cap. you served in some strange army. or were you just a weird warrior

                    Or did you have an exclusive set of cosmetics, presented solemnly in front of the formation, a respected elephant? I have already presented this epic picture. Although this was just one of the episodes of your wonderful service)

                    Nostalgic?)

                    In Russia, it seems like a mandatory military conscription

                    the country had the hope of making you a man and a warrior, but you yourself see what came of it. Thoughts on cosmetics, F-35 and Ilona Mask

                      Why are you so justifying something?) There is your cosmetic bag. They took it away from the military registration and enlistment office, probably - write to them :)

    You must always report at the end, as was customary in the USSR

    from the Soviet side, no losses.
