          After the statement of their Minister of Defense (I specially write with a small letter so as not to offend the Ministers of Defense) about the possible landing of the "Green Men", followed by the imminent death of millions of British, the word "nonsense" takes on a different meaning

      The problem is that not only planes fly here, but also KR and RCC and ICBMs. So why should the Tu-160 enter the enemy’s missile defense system if it is possible to launch the X-101 / 102 from its territory?

        Andrew, good evening!
        For the sake of objectivity, it is worth saying that even in its heyday, the UK air defense system was able to fight only with subsonic bombers. Beginning in the middle of 90's, it began to wilt, and now it is in a deep decline.

          But they don’t need all this, by and large, since they have at their side the entire military machine of the states. They need to catch hysteria, which is what they are doing. What kind of aggression is Russia talking about, if England is an island, and is located on the line on the horns, in the ocean from our borders? Therefore, they begin to sing about Russian aggressive submarines and bombers ... and the layman Brit then sits on the hawala and is not outraged by defense spending.

            Hysteria, of course, is forced, but for good they need to improve air defense, now they have none at all.

            In the past, British stations largely worked in the interests of NORAD, tracking the flights of Soviet long-range bombers in the North Atlantic towards the United States. Now, most of the British 8 operating radar stations look to the northeast. From the side of the Atlantic Ocean, the UK is very vulnerable.

      Maybe better saucepans on the head - individual protection. Yes, and there is someone to take an example. The British Minister of Defense is not far from the Ukrainian left, so why not follow the citizens. An example is contagious. Today I watch on TV - the Turkish professor quite seriously declares that the Turks were the first to invent the submarine, firearms and missiles. That's it.

    Oops! Puzzled after all ... But you need to do it with a circular rather than a sectoral review. The KRLF will arrive earlier than the VKS aviation and “from the back”, from the waters of the submarine Rockall Plateau, straight from the line ... But you can check for lice from the Norwegian basin ... or the North Sea, “so that your head does not swing”! (Breaking - not building!)
