A pair of Tu-160 strategists spent a long flight over the northern seas

The Russian Ministry of Defense continues the practice of flying Russian strategic bombers over the neutral waters of the northern seas and the Atlantic. According to the military department, a pair of Tu-160 White Swans strategists spent a long flight over the Barents and Norwegian seas, as well as the Atlantic Ocean.


Two strategic missile carriers Tu-160 completed a planned flight in the airspace over the neutral waters of the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. The flight duration was more than 15 hours

- said in a statement.

The Ministry of Defense added that during the flight the missile carriers worked out refueling in the air from the Il-78 tanker.


The military also reported that at certain stages the Russian missile carriers were accompanied by the Norwegian Air Force F-16 fighters and the British Air Force Eurofighter Typhoon.

In turn, the British Ministry of Defense released a video report on the “interceptions” of Russian aircraft conducted recently.

      And interesting gifts are Tu-160.
      The maximum flight duration of the X-101 / X-102 does not exceed ten hours, and the speed is 970 km / h.
      The Russian missile is equipped with an inertial guidance system. During the flight, it uses an on-board digital computer with digital map correction and an optical-electronic altimeter (transmits an image of the area). In addition, the X-101 / X-102 is “guided” by the coordinates of the Russian GLONASS navigation system. At the final stage, the missile is guided by an optical or radar correlation homing head (GOS).

      Uses a combined guidance system: inertial system with optoelectronic correction; in the final section, homing is used. It can receive complex information along the route and the coordinates of the target. Unlike the previous generation missiles, there is the possibility of changing the target when the missile is already in flight. The engine is located inside the rocket. Modification X-102 has a thermonuclear warhead with a capacity of up to 1 megaton. According to the test results, the missile has a circular probable deviation of 7 m at a range of 5500 km. Able to destroy moving targets with a hit accuracy of 10 meters.

    ... Russian missile carriers were accompanied by the Norwegian Air Force F-16 fighters ...

    It would probably be more correct: Russian missile carriers in escorted by an honorary escort Norwegian Air Force F-16 fighter ..

      This is not an honorary escort, this is an escort performed by persons of reduced social responsibility.

    Today in the news programs showed their refueling in the air. The distance between the strategist and the tanker is minimal. Against the background of the blue sky is truly the "White Swan". And the Norwegians with the Britons were shaken at the same time so that the scent would not be lost.

    The Americans threw three B-2 spirits, and we put our Swans (Tu-160) on the wing. Quite an adequate reaction to our Inadequate neighbors.

    I was impressed with how the operator tapped the “panic button”. Or with a fright, or awake. So the button will not last long. no
