The United States announced the interception of Russian anti-submarine IL-38 in the region of Alaska

American F-22 fighter jets intercepted two Russian IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft in the Alaska area. This was reported in a circulated statement by the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).


According to the report, to intercept the Russian IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft, two F-22 fighters, a KC-135 Stratotanker tanker aircraft and an E-3 AWACS early warning aircraft were lifted into the air. It is emphasized that Russian aircraft did not enter the airspace of the United States and Canada.

Russian aircraft were intercepted over the Bering Sea north of the Aleutian Islands, they did not enter the sovereign airspace of the United States or Canada

- the message says NORAD.

In turn, the press service of the Eastern Military District reported that the Russian IL-38 anti-submarine aircraft from the naval aviation Pacific fleet completed a training flight to the maximum range with relocation to the operational airfield. During the flight, the crews completed aerial reconnaissance and search for targets at sea.

Particular attention during the exercises was paid to the interaction of aviation with the ship of the Marshal Krylov measuring complex and the tactical groups of the fleet

- said at the headquarters of the Pacific Fleet.

        Why count it? Oil was "suddenly" formed - even if you fill it up, they go back and forth, they spend their motorcycle resources.

    The Americans presented the information in such a way that their layman could understand - if they had not intercepted, then the Russians had definitely violated the border of the United States. And the fact that both ours and yours constantly fly at someone’s borders and every time fighters fly out to meet them can be silent.

      Washington Examiner (USA) reassured the layman:
      On Wednesday, the US Air Force intercepted two Russian Ilyushin IL-38 aircraft 80 kilometers (50 miles) off the coast of Alaska. However, do not worry, these are ordinary Russian tricks.
      First of all, these aircraft did not pose any threat to Alaska. The IL-38 is a marine patrol aircraft, and its task is to detect ships and submarines, and not to strike at targets located deep in the enemy’s territory. Although these two Il-38 aircraft were most likely the most modern models, they do not pose a serious threat to America’s security.

    If on the IL-38, there is equipment for taking thermal and electronic casts, from different angles and at different distances, then another question is, who and whom intercepted ?.

      It was not the Eli who were engaged in electronic tracking, but our "peaceful" ship "Marshal Krylov".

    Interestingly, if ours disturbed their calm, what would they squeal? Unfortunately, our anti-submariners are not able to prevent their boats from leaving the base ...

      in the media such information slipped
      Along the route, IL-38 aircraft were accompanied by MiG-31 fighter interceptors.
      the fact that the MiG-31 has a limited range and flight time (no more than 2,5 hours) is confusing, and is not intended to be escorted at all

    Here are the idiots, just the other day, they were scribbling about the interception of Russian Il-38 fighters, and now anti-submarines. And what does interception mean, flew up, sniffed and flew away?

    These planes were built at the plant, the checkpoint of which was located next to the Dynamo metro station.
