Russian strategic bombers returned from the airfield in Venezuela to places of permanent deployment to the territory of the Russian Federation.


Norway raised F-16 to accompany Tu-160 returning from Venezuela


According to the news agency RIA News, the aircraft of the Russian Aerospace Forces in certain sections of the route were accompanied by fighters from NATO countries. According to some reports, it is (including) the fighters of the Royal Air Force of Norway - F-16.

According to some, the Norwegian aviation took off from the airbase of Bodø, where the Norwegian forces' rapid reaction groups are also located. The Norwegian air force fighters “brought” the Russian bombers to the Russian zone of responsibility and returned to the airfield.

The Tu-160 rocket carriers carried out a flight over the Caribbean Sea, the Atlantic, the Norwegian and the Barents Seas, breaking more than 12 thousands of kilometers in direct mode when performing refueling over neutral waters.

Recall that Russian strategic bombers made a visit to Venezuela along with the Il-62 and An-124 Ruslan aircraft. The unloading of a transport worker at Caracas airport, like the appearance of the Tu-160 in Venezuela, caused particular irritation among the United States of America. At the same time, the American ambassador decided to show off some inappropriate wit in this situation, calling the Tu-160 video conferencing of the Russian Federation "museum exhibits." If we are talking about "museum exhibits", then was it worth it with obvious irritation to trumpet about the Russian flight to Venezuela in all the major American newspapers? ..

Earlier, Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro accused Washington of preparing for the coup in a Latin American country.

Forgotten how the British "fled" from Norway, leaving it to the Germans to be torn apart. And who freed the Norwegians from the Nazis?

      Well, why, in their NORAD sector they are chopping a chip. There was no case that the Norgs did not rise to break through the northern flank. We would not be in such a precarious service in the Ural Kaliningrad region. But in the area of ​​this defensive region, only Belarusians are leading therefore, the norgs worked out by 5 and our strategists worked out by 5. Our task is not to stick into the depths of our Karelia, we have fleet facilities there. Su-35 reinforce our northern flank. That's good, but we need a couple of regiments, Schaub keep enemy destroyers at a distance. Purely sea planes, so that 35 and more could be used above the waves. Su = 22Mtsifra was an ideal option, in order to chop off the NATO Wishlist, Like a couple of regiments heated turbines .....

      Have you tried to bring down? Let them try - we will tear Norgov to the Norwegian flag.

      We met in full contact. Even non-Americans are a complete slag. Those at least ponte, and these - in a deaf defense immediately. They fight like boys at the school "on reception" - until the first ear from the nose.

      Warriors, damn it ...

          For me, 20 with over calendars, war was work. On a third of the globe - from Nicaragua to Afghanistan and Laos. And I did this job right. But he beat the gundos in a hand-to-hand combat and now, God willing, there will be enough strength. They decided, damn it, to compete, who is cooler - Russian paratroopers or American special forces. Of the 5 fights, 1 is a draw; we took 4 for a clear advantage. And after a draw he went out in a vest and took Lieutenant Colonel of the Airborne Forces. He would have died, not lost. Fists tore off the blood, and stole the American major .... The fight lasted one and a half minutes. They didn’t teach how to fight longer ... They taught how to win ..

      If we knew in advance that NATO fighters would meet and accompany our Tu-160s, then why was the fighter overlap not ensured? Link Su-27 or Su-30 could easily drive off the F-16. Of course, this would require an air refueling. But it is still much safer than waiting for the next provocation and "stab in the back."

        For fighters, the range is not global, to chase them after strategists in half the world. And there are somehow no Russian bases either.

          Let's start by accepting "honorary escort" (not to be confused with export ... and not to be repeated). By the way, Norway (at least residents) is a country where residents are not so aggressive towards Russians. They set up road signs on the Murmansk - Rayakoski section of the highway. Calm, cultured guys. They even treated me to cigarettes ...

    I wonder who should have done this, why they drove the equipment and burned the resource, and what benefits did Russia derive from this ??
    It is also interesting in which direction and by how much the United States moved, what was the Russian gain expressed in ??
    And why Russia does not hear words of gratitude ??

      If this is not sarcasm, then I believe that you are solely for the fact that Russian equipment "does not burn the resource", but "rusts" at airfields ...

      What benefits can you get from that if you walk with your bull terrier without a muzzle at the house of a person who daily tries to spoil you under the door? Probably, at a minimum, he will think about something if he wants to lower his ports ... Vooot ...

        You know, my life experience does not allow me to evaluate the combat readiness of the armed forces from a domestic point of view, since the armed forces are primarily an instrument of state political economy, and this is the sole purpose of the armed forces of any state. And education does not allow me to think otherwise - I am a naturalist, not a humanist.

      And why are Americans chasing aircraft carriers across all oceans, burning a resource, annually mastering the astronomical budget of the US Defense Ministry (with the same astronomical number of homeless people in their country), and crawling into every mess on the planet? More precisely, State Depression ears stick out of every mess. Because the US has interests. The Russian Federation also has them, as it may seem strange to someone ...

        This is just an easy question: Americans can afford it because of the enormous budget (without wars and conquests they will quickly lose their strength) and the balance of income of the whole cut of society. But in Russia, Mr. Gini = 17, and this is already beyond the bounds of revolutionary sentiment.
        So I am glad that the revolution still has not happened, otherwise there will be a khan for all pensions.

    As is customary throughout the world to accompany in the area of ​​their responsibility. At the same time, the NATO pilots once again watched the Russian beauties in the sky and perhaps thought about something.

    It would be nice if the Su-30 team came out to meet our strategists to Norway before the F-16 was raised there. In general, it's time to meet ours from all places at a tactical distance.
