Tu-160 flew over the North Pole

13
Russian strategic bombers made a flight from the Saratov region to Chukotka, the channel reports Star.




Never before has a strategic bomber landed so close to the shores of the United States. The length of the flight was more than 8 thousand kilometers. The flight itself from Engels to Anadyr took place in August 2018.

As described on Sunday’s “Military Acceptance” program, on the way back the pilots “were instructed to go to the North Pole”. And on the way from there, the crews performed the combat mission - they conducted conditional missile launches against ground targets at the test site in the Komi Republic. The missile carriers also carried out refueling in the air.

As previously reported by the Ministry of Defense, the flight tactical exercise was held under the leadership of the commander of the long-range aviation Sergey Kobylash.

The administrative center of the Chukotka Autonomous Region of Anadyr is located in the extreme north-east of Russia. The region has a maritime border with the United States.

Recall that in March of this year, Sergei Shoigu said that for the first time since Soviet times, Russian planes flew across the North Pole to the North American continent. At the same time, a military source explained that the minister was referring to the flight of two anti-submarine aircraft, accompanied by fighters and a tanker.

    Let them practice. More often and longer. Muscles require constant training.

    I hope now such flights will not turn into one-time actions, but the systematic watch of missile carriers in the North Pole region to the "joy" of the impudent Americans, whom this event should sober up at least a little.
    True, the wording is not entirely clear.
    carried out conditional launches of missiles at ground targets at a training ground in the Komi Republic.
    If the launch is conditional, then what does the testing ground and goals have to do with it. And if the targets are hit at the training ground, then the launches should be real, not conditional.

      In order to carry out a conditional launch, this aircraft needs to go to the area of ​​a given launch (RZP) entered into the computer at a given time with a given accuracy. Then (in the machine), a check is made for the coincidence of the height map wired in the memory with the true one. If it is a coincidence, it is necessary to perform an exhibition of rocket gyrostabilizers, for which a strictly horizontal flight is performed for a given time. After that, a snake is performed to verify the correctness of the exhibition of these same stabilizers.
      Well, then the actual algorithm for working with missile weapons to material detachment occurs, that is, before the start of irreversible processes, such as: switching the rocket to power from internal power sources, releasing the engine, and the beginning of the layout of planes and stabilizers. Irreversible processes take only a few seconds. Those. a conditional start differs from a practical start in just these seconds. Well, as a RZP they scored a training ground in Komi, this is already particular. By the way, there are two of them - Pemboy and Halmer-Yu.

    Never before has a strategic missile carrier landed so close to the US coast.
    I didn't get it, did the author (s) just learn to read and write? And what did our Tu-160s "close to the shores of America" ​​do in Venezuela in 2008? And then, Alaska is a Russian land, which for them is like the Far East for us! The author (s) did not even graduate from vocational school (s)!

      Why such rude assaults? What are the authors wrong? Sorry, you have geography problems. At what distance is Venezuela from the United States and at what Anadyr. A ruler and a map to help you. hi

    Oh, but it would be cool if they also visited the South. With intermediate landings in Venezuela and Argentina. So much so that the route would pass along the Malvinas-Falkled Islands. I can imagine what would have begun in Washington and London ...

    And on the way from there, the crews completed a combat mission - carried out conditional missile launches at ground targets at a training ground in the Komi Republic.
    Here is the main point! We worked in Komi, but threshed like in California. The Pentagon once again heard our military prayer, the triad at the military post, the trigger, so again the aggravation will begin in Syria. That's how the superpowers are fighting ..... dalnikov, bow low, for the military work and the real threat to California. Thank you guys

    That’s probably the Americans have done their best!
