British Defense Ministry reported the interception of Russian aircraft


The operation continues; these are Russian planes.
- he said.

In the meantime, the press service of the British Ministry of Defense confirmed to the TASS correspondent the very fact of the use of the "Typhoon", but refused to officially confirm the identity of military aircraft approaching British airspace.

We can confirm that the Typhoon aircraft of the British Air Force, which were on high alert for departure, were raised into the sky from the Air Force base at Lossimuth this morning. This is an operation that continues, so we will not provide any additional information until it is completed.
- told the Ministry of Defense of the United Kingdom

At the same time, Interfax reports that a pair of Eurofighter Typhoon British multi-role fighters flew to intercept Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-160.

According to journalists, the Royal Air Force intercepted radio communications between the two missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces. After that, the fighters and the tanker aircraft were raised into the air. In addition, the British were supported by the Belgian F-16 fighters and the French flying tanker C-135FR.

          With a real Tu-160 skucher, they will not be approached, and they will not be caught by aircraft, but by X-102 type cruise missiles. wink

            The press service of the British Ministry of Defense, meanwhile, told the TASS correspondent that the Typhoons were involved, but refused to officially confirm the ownership of military aircraft approaching British airspace
            The question is, why is this petty propagandist o.ns.sky op about allegedly Russian planes. Russia does not deny that its planes fly in the North Atlantic, so say what it was. Maybe a UFO, with Russian-speaking crews? laughing

      The Royal Air Force intercepted the radio communications of two missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces.

      But are communication channels open to all at dedicated frequencies, like for an SOS signal?

    The Royal Air Force intercepted the radio communications of two missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces.
    That is, they were not detected by radars? and radio conversations? Stealth nervously smokes on the sidelines laughing
    After that, fighters and a tanker were lifted into the air.
    Apparently with the aim of refueling the TU-160
    and the French flying tanker C-135FR.
    In the course of a competing gas station. But the Russians apparently said that they had a canister with them (IL-78) request , bought nothing and brazenly proceeded further - damn dynamists laughing

    Direct operation no less than the "Overlord", judging by the show-off.
    None of the pilots for the entire service will get anything more, and therefore their actions are understandable.

    Ours announced that they were catching up with the "Old New Year."
    The French tanker offered a choice of 10 tons of Burgundy or Champagne.
    Ours responded that afterburner is only Whiskey.
    Shaving nozzles into a tube.
    Then, on our way back, they promised the Britons to play Barmaleev.

    I do not quite understand what the interception has to do with it?
    If our planes went past Britain on business, they could only be escorted, but not intercepted.
    Interception implies an attack by intruders, but by no means a banal escort.

        By the way, I paid the same attention, in the morning they flew out, by lunch they could not confirm that they were Russian planes and only after one Tu - 160 started telling jokes on the air to another TU-160 did it reach them. The operation continues, refueling is sent, the Atlantic is large. Most likely the cabs - well, for what pride !!!

    However ... Sur is complete. On the "interception" of the Tu-160 "Typhoons" with the refueling tank were raised and cannot catch up with half a day. But it doesn’t even come to small-shavens that their “interceptors” fly slower than our bombers and is it just silly to talk about interception?
