American B-52 seen near the Murmansk region

26
A B-52 strategic bomber, a US Air Force capable of carrying nuclear weapons, flew off the coast of the Murmansk region and the Arctic islands where the new Russian air defense base is located, reports Interfax information of foreign sites tracking the movement of the military aviation.




According to the report, the aircraft with the call sign Chaos43 (tail number 61-0015) took off from the British airfield Ferford. He flew along the Russian borders near the Kola Peninsula and the west coast of Novaya Zemlya. Then the bomber described a circle over the archipelago of Franz Josef Land, where the new Russian air defense system "Arctic Trefoil" is located.

It is noted that B-52 did not violate the air borders of the Russian Federation, he strictly followed the route laid over international waters. The bomber also conducted refueling in the air from the US Navy tanker KS-135 arriving from Britain.

According to the agency, the plane seen near the Murmansk region is one of two American strategists deployed to Europe in early September to participate in the Ample Strike international maneuvers. This exercise took place on the territory of the Czech Republic, but the bombers managed to visit Romania and the Arctic.

Recall that the B-52 Stratofortress is a strategic bomber capable of taking up to 31,5 tons of ammunition, including nuclear ones, and using them at a distance of 7,2 thousand km from the base.

      ABOUT! B-52 is flying!

      But what about the agreement on "open skies" We were not allowed to see us.
      So - you need to deploy.

              To launch a rocket, it is not necessary to go into the line of sight. Everything else is just a demonstration of the size of the testicles.

              Yes, surely MiG 31BM marine aviation from Monchegorsk was met and escorted (tea-coffee ...)
              As usual, with DZ raise in such cases ..

              Well, this kerogas flies for itself over 1000 km. It is clear to everyone that it’s not for war, but for ventilation.
              And why accompany him, to raise planes to meet him, to spend fuel? And all these s-300, s-400 then why? We took them from the ground for escort, if anything, they got in touch on the radio - change course, otherwise you’re getting closer. Everyone who understands everything is clear.

                They raised it.

                  And what does cellular communication work on the sea? If so, then it is entirely possible. And if not, then on the radio. The emergency receiver is always at the reception.
                  What difference does it make that a pilot from a nearby interceptor will warn about the inadmissibility of crossing the border, or they will be shot down, or the officer from the ground command post will say the same.

                      No, well, if there’s any kind of crazy about corn on the border rushing, then it’s understandable to fly up, wave a hand, show rockets, force them to land ....
                      And then a bomb truck. You can’t force him to land. So after a warning, he will either retire or knock down. You can warn and shoot down using the S-300.
                      I don’t think that the completeness of loading the diaper will decrease if his STR indicates that he is captured by the S-300, and not the MiG-31.

      So far, the "fifteen hundred" are going to extend the service life for another 30 years. So they have a chance to celebrate "100 years in the ranks". smile
      Our Tu-95MS is younger - the first serial MS was released, EMNIP, 20 years after the removal of the B-52 from production.

    52s fly a lot where and often. Americans keep their pilots and strategic aviation in good shape, as, indeed, our military.
    But news is like "news", well, so-so, because it's commonplace. Now, if ours so often flew near the States, then this news would be much more interesting. And so ...

    Have you removed the flight parameters, the generated electronic background and other parameters for air defense? The real goal in the training mode worked out - and then the bread. And so, if Che, let’s get rid of the nafik and business ... and the Americans know about it.

    And what is common between the "open skies" treaty and the B-52 overflight ???

    In the same place as the data on the interception of our Tu-95MS and TU-160 by the Americans. I’m not tired of asking in the second topic why they didn’t bring me down? Or doesn’t it happen that flights of both B-52 and reconnaissance flights take place in neutral waters ??
