A pair of US Air Force B-1 Lancer bombers bombed on a landfill in Estonia

NATO’s Spring Storm military exercises continue in Estonia. As part of the exercises, American bombers bombed one of the republic's military training grounds. This was reported by the press service of the General Staff of the Estonian Defense Forces.


US strategic bombers B-1 Lancer conduct training bombing during NATO Spring Storm exercises

- said in a statement.

It is noted that two B-1 Lancer bombers arrived in Estonia from Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota (USA), after spending 24 hours in the air, having worked out an air refueling along the way.

According to Estonian Defense Minister Juri Luik, the flights of American bombers are a sign of "US seriousness in protecting the Baltic countries."

The United States is one of our most important allies. I consider it especially important that strategic bombers complete their tasks by participating in our Spring Storm exercises

- said the head of the Estonian military department.

Meanwhile, it became known that on the eve of the above exercises, an Estonian conscript soldier was wounded. The reason for this was the firing of a Carl-Gustav hand grenade launcher.

Serviceman - conscript of the Kuperyanovsk Infantry Battalion received serious injuries during live firing from an anti-tank grenade launcher like Carl-Gustav. According to preliminary data, injuries were received due to the shock wave

- Said the press service.

As it became known earlier, the number of troops participating in the NATO Spring Storm exercises in Estonia from April 25 to May 8 was reduced from 10 thousand to a little more than 3 due to the situation with coronavirus. In addition to the Estonian Self-Defense Forces, units from France and Italy participate in them.

    And again, NATO bombs explode over the heads of innocent civilians. Someone believed that the hegemon would stop in Syria? No, overt aggression against sovereign Estonia has begun. So, will we watch indifferently until the turn reaches us?

      Well, American strategists are already practicing very closely. In the immediate vicinity of our borders. The landfill in Estonia .. And how much is this Estonia, yo-mayo? I doubt that these were the B-1 Lancer. In such proximity, the strategist is no longer exercises, but anxiety and the departure of interceptors. Could this be another awesome PR throw-in amid reports of the participation of the same B-1 Lancer in Japan? Here, literally on May 1 it was.

        Not for the first or last time. The Americans decided to shake the old B-1B. His most formidable strategist. Although now American strategic aviation is probably in its worst form in the history of the United States - there are few combat-ready aircraft, almost all have exhausted their resources, and new ones will not be available soon.

        The B2 plane, whose cost is more than $ 2 billion, turned out to be too vulnerable, the F117 stealth aircraft could not boast of a good load and were written off, and the good old B-52 with a dozen missiles on board is detected by air defense weapons even at the moment of separation from the runway ... From a purely practical point of view, only B1B can ensure the success of the US Air Force in certain regions of the world, but the history of this aircraft's life is heading towards decline faster than the creators think about its continuation.


        There are no new aircraft, old ones become worthless, and those that survived need to be studied and re-produced for some time, while promising means of delivering nuclear weapons exist only on paper. It is not easy to do this even with such a military budget as in the USA.


        Engineers say that the American B1B is the only carrier aircraft that can be produced at the lowest cost in the next five years and whose technological cycle has not yet been fully developed. Nobody will refuse from the old and proven B-52, however, the B1B can be prepared for a very modern war. For current wars, these machines are no longer suitable. Even in Syria, where the US military used B1B, their service was short, and the cars were urgently recalled for urgent modernization.


        B1B almost lost the potential for modernization. Of the 60 cars, no more than half are equipped with modern equipment, but by 2025 already modernized machines can become obsolete both morally and technically.
        • Secondly, most of the combat machines need urgent repairs, but the problem is that the USA cannot reproduce the technology of the 70s used to create this aircraft.

          The problems of the American military-industrial complex in general and strategic aviation in particular are not the essence of my post. I say, when an American strategist lands on a target at a training ground 100 km (distance from the ceiling) from the border of the Russian Federation, then this is no longer a joke. For the devil will take it, is it still a doctrine or already a war. Let's say the teachings of our Strategic Rocket Forces, the start is Kapustin Yar, the goal is Kamchatka. And let's launch for the same purpose, but to the other side of the globe? Through the USA! And what will begin? That is what I wanted to say. In my opinion, the message of the Estonian General Staff is a lie and a bluff.

                "Educational program" - there are "their own" polygons (relatives, so to speak, where they flew with their eyes closed, like to their home), there are "remote", these are polygons located at a tactical range, which is close to the maximum. And there are "unfamiliar" - these are the polygons to which you fly, after redeploying to an alternate airfield and preliminary acquaintance with the target situation, you make only information on paper (instructions for the polygon and maps of targets and target situation) and for navigators, images of the radio situation along the route of flight, approach on the range and the target environment itself (center 105 and markers and ECP-if on b / m on the target radar.)

              Was there a "flight in the course of combat training with bombing at a remote range"? Let's say the squeak of the Estonian General Staff does not convince me. Regarding "the pants got wet", say hello to your friends in Brussels. Every time after a meeting with Russian military aircraft, whether over the Baltic, over the Black Sea or in the Atlantic, protests and statements, mattresses and rehabilitation are constantly heard. Actually, the NATO exercises and the American bombing, first of all, should worry the Estonians. Something like this.

            Not so long ago, the B-52 was bombed. The United States and NATO are training with impunity in the airspace and on the territory of the USSR, two hundred kilometers from Leningrad. I do not remember that during the Soviet Union, US ships and bombers flew into the Baltic Sea. Maybe in the 1950s.

Nothing !!! you need to teach farmers how to use the fab for local wars. I’m silent about the psychological impact on the enemy, for example, fab-2000. The cost effectiveness criteria have not been canceled. What is the price x 9000 and dozens of fab 101?

          I repeat once again - P.S. Deinekin meant that the Tu-160 is not "knocked out" due to the fact that it was RE-EQUIPPED into the version of the "ROCKET-CARRIER" ... but at the same time, the expansion of the range of weapons was originally incorporated into its design, including the use of conventional bombs, for which the aircraft was equipped with a high-precision optical laser sight OPB-15T.(I emphasize .. for especially ... "gifted ones).
          They also developed a batch suspension of bombs using a loader, which reduces the aircraft equipment time.

          And who speaks here for .. the "effectiveness" of using strategists as bombers? belay
          In Afghanistan and Chechnya, the Tu-160 was not used. And what has it to do with ... "Air Defense of the EW Air Force"? belay

          it is necessary to teach farmers how to use the fab for local wars. I am silent about the psychological impact on the enemy, for example, fab-9000.

          Generally..BRED .... 9000 were used with Tu-16s .. "across the river" ... efficiency .. no ... except .. "relief leveling" .... but 1500 and 3000 were preferable.

    .tu 95ms neither 160 can do that

    Who told you that? belay To do this, you need to "re-equip" from the "missile carrier" version to the "bomber" version (remove the "revolving" launcher and put in the DB) and forward.
    A PrNK (radar + opb + nk) allow the use of "cast iron" in full wink
    But just whether it is necessary .. in modern conditions of doing B.D.

    In general, there is no sense to re-equip. The Americans have enough of these bombers, but we don’t have so many to convert from missile carriers into pure bombers ...

    As part of the exercises, American bombers bombed one of the republic's military training grounds.

    But I think what stinks in Tallinn? And this is NATO bombing! laughing

    "If they want their ranges to be used for bombing, that's their problem. What do we care about that?"
    Well ... Don’t blame me for imperial manners, but I was born, lived for 22 years, (friends, relatives of TAM remained) ... What is it like watching TV on Abrams crawling where I picked mushrooms and berries in my childhood?
    And please, respect the people (this appeal is not specific to you, but to all visitors to the site) who remained outside the borders of the Russian Federation, but who are often more Russian than those who vote from the sofas - We will tear them all!
    I served in the Strategic Missile Forces ... And my mother called, with the onset of this century: "Sonny, if anything, we call fire on ourselves, don't be shy!"
    All a Happy!

    Alexander! In principle, I am not talking about ordinary people living there, especially Russian-speaking. They, like us in Russia, do not decide anything. And about those who are exposed by some kind of power. I would like to be "bedding" - let them be. If they are "at the helm" there is no national pride. All they can do is broadcast about the "Soviet occupation". God bless them.
    As for the fact that someone lived somewhere - I have the same situation. I was born in the Kaliningrad region. I am afraid I will never be able to visit my small homeland, living in the North Caucasus. For a long time (14-15 years) he lived in Ukraine, in the Poltava region. You can't get there either. There are also relatives in Ukraine. True, the connection with them was lost already 20 years ago. I am also not a supporter of "delivering a preemptive strike" against this or that country. Sitting at a computer, it's easiest to give radical advice ...

      I agree with you! With all the points set out above by you. I just wanted to focus the attention of the local audience on that (which you just mentioned: the country is not the same as its population! This refers to those who are ready with to throw the sofa with slippers of everyone and everything, including compatriots who have a different point of view.
      Internal contradictions (if we do not learn to solve them peacefully), IMHO, will end us.
      ... I’m afraid I’m not going to visit my homeland either ... hi

    This is some kind of holiday for air defense, the real guys over the Baltic Sea, not all of our 160s to be accompanied by NATO. Lift not a couple, link and troll Lanserov, take photos from all angles ... Or overslept?

    Estonian General Staff report - lies and bluffs

    Not so long ago, the B-52 was bombed. The United States and NATO are training with impunity in the airspace and on the territory of the USSR, two hundred kilometers from Leningrad. I do not remember that during the Soviet Union, US ships and bombers flew into the Baltic Sea. Maybe in the 1950s.

    Kamrad! It would not be desirable, but it is still worth forgetting about the SSR. Now this territory - the Baltic countries - the territory of other states. As for the Baltic, you just need to see when the last RB-47 was shot down

    It is probably difficult to carry out bombing in a country that is slightly larger than the bomber itself?

      To the ancient! Seryozha, I’m glad to see you revitalizing at VO. You are the only BA pros here. I am pleased to read your posts and marvel at your memory.
      You have an excellent memory, even if you peep at the "old notes" - at our age it is forgivable. Seryozha, with the coming, the biggest holiday of our Motherland! Health to you! I do not send it to the "personal", but specially openly. You deserve it. Old-timers on VO, they remember you! good drinks hi
