Russian anti-submarine Tu-142 spent a long flight near Alaska

Russian long-range Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft continue to patrol over the neutral waters of the northern seas. The next two pairs of Tu-142 Northern and Pacific fleets completed a planned flight over the seas of the Arctic Ocean and the Beaufort Sea, approaching Alaska by less than 100 km. This was reported by the press service of the North fleet.


According to the report, the flight duration was more than 15 hours, during which time the aircraft covered more than 11 thousand kilometers by air refueling from Il-78 fuel refueling machines in the North Pole region. In some areas of the flight, the Tu-142 was accompanied by Russian MiG-31BM.

As noted in the headquarters of the SF, in March the crews of anti-submarine Tu-142 made several flights over long distances, the total flight time of the crews was more than 100 hours.


In turn, the joint North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) reported that the F-22 US fighter aircraft on Saturday lifted to “intercept” two pairs of Russian long-range Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft entering the American Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ ) near Alaska.

Tu-142 entered the identification zone from the west and north of Alaska. The western pair stayed in the zone for about four hours, flying in the immediate vicinity of the ICEX submarine training area of ​​the U.S. Navy. F-22 fighters accompanied them throughout the flight.

- stated in NORAD, adding that the northern pair of Tu-142 was in the identification zone for about 15 minutes and was also accompanied by F-22 fighters. It was located 45 nautical miles (about 83 km) off the coast of Alaska.

    Something I do not catch up, is that an extraordinary event?
    Flights Tu-142.
    Or the fact that their fighters escorted?
    Or should such flights be carried out almost every day?
    The NATO base Poseidons and the RC-130 over the Barents Sea and near Kamchatka are constantly rubbing, almost every day, and that the American media is trumpeting this.?

      Normal work, in the days of the USSR, routine. Interest is another question, how many similar aircraft are left in the Russian Federation?

        Tu-142 anti-boat aircraft.
        Flies where necessary and in the presence of the damned F-22/35, if necessary, will throw buoys and catch a boat.
        How they are coming from our shores constantly.

        But if the war ...
        And fell into the radius of interception ...
        One way ticket.

        I’m sending military secrets, for each NATO submarine, two Carcasses, accompanied by a dozen Su-57 bully . Well, at least the "brave" Japanese counted more than 10 during the last Korean crisis. Although it drove 2 AUGA from its shores as much as it was wassat

        And now it’s not too rare. The cottage is not too far from Ukrainka. A pair of Tu-95 took off in pursuit of the IL-78. After a few hours, the IL-78 returns, a break and after another 4-5 hours it goes north again. Return already triple 2 Tu-95 and IL-78.
        You no longer notice their flights. Pay attention when silence. It is strange why planes do not fly.
        In the village of peasants, boats are homemade with motors. Asche Kulibiny. Somewhere they abused ABshek, (gasoline unit), apparently decommissioned old. Generators for scrap, to the engines directly shaft and screw. Just started straight ahead. In general, refuel with aviation kerosene. And they do not steal kerosene, but are collected in ravines along the glide path of the aircraft’s passage when they dump the remaining fuel before landing. There is a specially allocated area so that everyone does not mess up.
        In general, they fly and fly a lot and for a long time.

      The anti-submarine, very similar to the strategic Bear, accompanied by no means a full-time patrol officer Su-27, but the world's only three fly-type interceptor, and even a carrier of daggers. In Artik !!!! For the Yankees, this is not an ordinary event. Do you know the hundredth level trolling. At one time, the combination of Tu-142 + Su-35 in the Sea of ​​Japan sent the AUG headed by Karl Vinson to catch sharks, further from Our Far East, and Trump declared Yuna the best friend hi

      Before you write each of the sentences, you need to look at the ceiling. repeat Information from the ceiling allows you not to spend much time, to do without other primary sources, visits to libraries and archives, talking with experts and experts, etc. smile And the result is the same - a "round dance" of letters, which you can not read or read. Depending on the moodwassat

    also news to me ...
    in the summer of 85, for 3 days, 2 missile launchers and 2 torpedo tubes provided torpedo throwing for the TU-142 regiment from Kipelovo on 2 Vidyayevsky folding beds of 651 projects ...
    this is where they really "sweated" ... torpedoes in batches rained down from heaven ... did not have time to find and pick up the orange "blanks" after the next pair, and on the air the "most intelligent" briefing of the flight director of the next pair of Tusheks was already heard ...
    By the way, out of more than 30 dropped, not a single torpedo drowned, they raised everything ...
    and this was considered an absolutely ordinary element of the BP course ...
    yeah ... there were times and there was once a fleet ... not like the current ...

    The MiG-31 is apparently hard to move at the same speed as the Carcass. For him, this is apparently the minimum speed)))
