    I don’t catch up a lot. Why do they need it? This is a front-line fighter! They say the Americans are a revolver! He doesn’t have to fly far ... Or I don’t understand something? Well, if only a transfer from one airfield to another ...

      Why do they need this?

      In case you need to concentrate all your forces in one specific direction in a short time. Prior to this, they apparently also traveled to Syria on their own, although this is not so far. In any case, even if it is not needed, but you have to be prepared for any scenario, and therefore work out

        Quite. But I think that any unusual training is important both for the crew and for the car. And everything else is not the point ...

      As an option, this is the task of escorting bombers or airborne watch during an endangered period. All the same, the territory is a huge and accepted concept

      It is noted that the pilots received the skills of super-long flights over the central regions of the Russian Federation.

      They must correctly navigate in their airspace, I think so. Let them train, who knows where else their skills can come in handy. Have a clear sky!

          Under START-2, it’s impossible ... The Americans can have a missile defense system in Poland and the Baltic states, but we can’t refuel the system for the Carcass ...

            What are we talking about. And already in the open it is said about the dual purpose of this missile defense. At least somehow stealthily, we were preparing retaliatory steps, like the same rods for TU-sheks and new RSMD. Although this may be all done, we are not supposed to know.

              Why covertly ... Right now they will modify the Tu-223M, equipment and weapons will be similar (interfaced) with the equipment and weapons of the Tu-160M ​​... At least, the long-range missiles will be ...
              Enough for Europe, without going into the anti-aircraft defense zone ...

                I support the return of a refueling system in the air to TU-22M3 and this must be done "just yesterday." the Americans wanted to spit on all the contracts without proof .. Well, as it seems to me, we’ll always die like that .. Although who knows, they can "mirror" hi

    We put the revolver is also an effective weapon, especially in skilled hands, but modern, not capsule.

      ... but I wonder how much they burned? How many hours of engine life of this aircraft burns on one ton of fuel? More precisely, as a percentage of the total resource of the engine?
