A group of Russian bombers visited the borders of Great Britain

Around 13:20 Moscow time on February 2, radio amateurs recorded the activity of strategic aviation of the Russian Aerospace Forces. Judging by the data received, two Russian Tu-95MS missile-carrying bombers, a pair of Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft, several Il-78 tankers and one A-50U airborne early warning and control aircraft were in the air.

Three hours later, the Royal Air Force of Great Britain reported the departure of fighters to identify and escort unidentified aircraft approaching the borders of the country from the north.

Several Eurofighter Typhoons were flown from Lossiemouth Air Base, later joined by an Airbus A330 MRTT refueling tanker from Brize Norton Base in Oxfordshire.

It is obvious that Russian strategic bombers once again visited the borders of Foggy Albion. And the active operations of the ships of the Russian fleet in the area of ​​​​the British Isles in recent days only add to this epic event.

The planes are still in the air, heading to home airfields, so the Russian Ministry of Defense has not yet provided accurate data on the route of the “strategists”.

      What kind of chair will you have if the shaves don’t understand the joke and you get a summons to the military registration and enlistment office?

    Russia itself trolls the Britons, and in return they design various dirty tricks for Russia.
    But "the Englishwoman is shitting." And Russia does not crap. Never.

      Why did Russia troll the Britons so that it fought with them in the Crimea?

      Well, yes, the first one trolled your masters by placing its aviation and infantry near the Russian border in the Baltic states, trolling by directing warships across the sea border of Crimea, directing Typhoons to the air bases of Romania, KC and RC to provide Pentagon strategists near our border ... And the Russian Federation should sit quietly, unsubscribing concerns, right? Twist your own fig

      And now you can safely take a cookie from Aunt Nuland! Well done, though clumsy, but earned!

        Planes that visited the North Atlantic are based far from the borders of Europe

    Judging by the maneuver, they bombed beautifully. 6 cruise missiles each? Even in a non-nuclear version, it will be enough for London (decision-making centers will be reset to zero).

    It is not visible in the article in the photo, but in the TV news the external right engine of the Tu-142 was clearly shown. A very interesting screw, and it looks like the gearbox is different
