“They didn’t catch it”: NATO fighters could not find the Russian Tu-95

“They didn’t catch it”: NATO fighters could not find the Russian Tu-95

A curious incident occurred on February 26 this year over the Norwegian Sea. Aviation NATO tried to find in this area the Russian Tu-95, which made a scheduled flight, but in the end "was left with nothing."


According to Avialive, on February 26, having received an alarm signal about the discovery of the Russian strategic Tu-95 bomber over the Norwegian Sea, five NATO fighters and a tanker were lifted into the air, which went to the area of ​​the alleged discovery of the Russian aircraft for its identification and further escort.

It is reported that two British Typhoon fighters from the Lossimuth air base and an Airbus Voyager tanker from Bryz-Norton were sent to intercept the Russian aircraft. In addition, two Norwegian F-16 fighters from the Bodo air base and the Dutch F-15 were lifted into the air.

NATO fighters carried out a long search for the Russian Tu-95, but as a result, and without having found it, all the fighters returned to their airfields.

Meanwhile, the Russian Ministry of Defense stated that there was no Tu-95 in that area, and two Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft made a planned flight over the neutral waters of the Barents and Norwegian Seas. It turns out, "not that caught."

The crews of the aircraft have worked out the skills of following a given course over a non-reference area, the coordination of piloting in the absence of ground-based radio-technical navigation aids. The flight lasted about 12 hours, the planes returned safely to the airfield.

Tu-95 aircraft in this area did not perform

- said the press service of the North fleet.

      Tu-142 is just a modification of the Tu-95. But the fact that they were not found, already says a lot.

          What a comedic story looms. The object was not found, well at least they themselves did not get lost. In addition, TU-95, this is not a needle in a haystack, with modern means of detection.

        More precisely, the Tu-142 was made on the basis of the Tu-95RC.
        But the story did not end there - and already on the basis of the modified Tu-142, our current strategic missile carrier, the Tu-95MS, was made the main one. smile

        It is possible that they discovered the Tu-142. (Well, I do not believe that such a goal, which visually, without locators can be seen for a hundred kilometers, they did not detect). But, the fact is that they were then sent specifically to look for the Tu-95, which, of course, they did not find, since it was not there.

      Actually, the editorial office needs to remember / know that today is not April 1st.
      From the article:
      “As Avialive writes, February 26th, receiving a signal ...”
      I decided to ask Google about Avialive, and Google asks me what I mean:
      Did you mean:
      Avayalive Avalive Avaya Live Av Alive
      those. there is no such site, but there are many such names on twitter and instagram.
      The editors have fun / fooling around - they told a joke and read the reaction of the patriots. It is not good to giggle ... !!

    It would be very good if there were links, otherwise you won’t understand anything from the article
    But if the link was ....
    https://www.airlive.net/breaking-raf-typhoon-fighter-jets-scrambled-after-a-russian-tu-95-has-been-spotted-west-of-norway/
    It would immediately become clear that
    1. The British did not look for Tu-95, and no one says that they found it in the Norwegian Sea (they write that off the western coast of Norway, that is, the North Sea generally works out.)
    The RAF aircraft are flying to Shetland Islands after a Russian TU-95 Bear bomber has been spotted near Norway coast, heading to West.

    2. The flight of the British was through the territory of England to their Shetland Islands after reports of a Tu-95 near Norway

    3. The point was that after the message, two English fighters and a tanker quickly flew out and patrolled between England and the Shetland Islands, far from Norway.
    4. The Barents Sea is a huge distance from the scene, it is not clear what the flights to the Barents are to do with it. Where are the Shetland Islands and where is the Barents Sea.
    In general, it’s good if the links gave, it would be clearer what the essence of the issue in the article

      And what does this geographically and tactically refute? All the same, they bowed. They didn’t go for a long interception and decided to wait in his kitchen when he himself came closer because he was "..., heading to West". But the Russians again did not come to the war and broke off the entire “victory”.

        In the source text there is not a word that the British were going to intercept at all
        They just flew out to cover their islands just in case.
        It’s impossible to understand from the text whether it was really discovered or was the introduction to the exercises

          Do you even understand that all these excuses resemble a kindergarten - "I will not because I do not want ..."
          Everything is there: you write "after a Russian TU-95 Bear bomber has been spotted near Norway coast, heading to West. "That is, they found (as it seemed to them) a strategic bomber and threw three NATO fighters at its identification and sharply threw the British and the tanker," just in case "? Key phrases are" strategic "," bomber "and "to the west".

            I don’t know how you translated this phrase for yourself, but it’s not there that the British sent to intercept, search, identify, or even just to that area.
            but there is a map where you can clearly see where they flew and where they were on duty after that, obviously not to the coast of Norway

    Actually more like a fake. About 1000 km from the Bodo da Barents Sea airbase, from Britain, from where fighters and the tanker started, actually about 3000 km. I wonder how, how they could detect or not detect something at such a distance. If you really picked it up and intercepted it is not known where - to knock on the head you need the navigator of the combat command. But most likely a fake
