American bombers flew near Russia's Arctic borders

The United States has significantly increased the number of combat aircraft flying near Russian borders. Three B-1 Lancer bombers flew near Russian islands in the East Siberian Sea, US European Command reported.


Texas-based B-1 Lancer bombers from the US Air Force reserve yesterday flew (...) from Texas to the easternmost point of the US European Command's area of ​​responsibility. Immediately after the [completion of] the mission in the international airspace over the East Siberian Sea, the aircraft and their crews were sent to an airbase (...) in Alaska

- said in a statement.

The bombers spent 14 hours in the air, part of the flight took place near Wrangel Island and the New Siberian Islands.

B-1 Lancer showcases how American strategic bombers can help carry out any mission anywhere in the world

- emphasized in the command.

Meanwhile, it became known that four B-1 Lancer bombers were transferred to Andersen base on the island of Guam in the western part of the Pacific Ocean.

The US Air Force Command in the Pacific said that the bombers were deployed "to maintain order in the region," clearly hinting at containing China.

Bombers from Expeditionary Squadron 34, 28th Bomber Wing are deployed to conduct Pacific Air Force exercises with Allies and Partners and the Combined Forces, and to contain and enforce a rule of law international order in the region

- said in a statement.

        Yesterday Shoigu was quoted: this year not only ordinary reconnaissance flights from the United States, but also, for the first time in many years, there is a real practice of attacks by bombers of conventional launches of the KR in the direction of Russia: in the region of Kaliningrad, the Black Sea (Crimea, Novorossiysk), Barents sea.

        Reconnaissance flights (number) for the year increased by third (80 was, this year already 120)

          Here are some who are VERY angry at me and throw dislikes when I write that it is VERY interesting to read the comments on VO! Even to completely inexpressive and nondescript topics. A wild flight of the commentators' fantasy! From very funny, ridiculous and fantastic statements of illiterate meager dilettantes to deep and comprehensive analysis of specialists. The first is very funny (although they take revenge on me: they sculpt dislikes), the second is informative and interesting.

          As for the sharp activity of the US aviation, this is quite consistent with Trump's policy of today's increased tensions in the world and the aggravation of the situation. And as his trump card in the pre-election internal political struggle.

          Ours fly around Chukotka and go south to the Sea of ​​Okhotsk or Kamchatka.
          The proximity of Chukotka and Alaska makes it possible for stupid people to write that ours are flying to America ...
          For me, for example, flying to America is flying to Seattle, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Miami ... This is a real flight to America.

          American bombers fly to the real borders of Russia.
          Ukraine, Barents Sea, how far are they from America?

        By 2023 (that is, by this time, we can really "justify" an air base in Cuba ... that's just about the "division" ... you got very, very excited about it), and so by this time the Yankees are planning to have in service batteries of operational-tactical missiles Precision Strike Missile (PrSM), which will replace ATACMS missiles during the Cold War, increasing the range of military MLRS and HIMARS missile systems from 300 km to more than 500 km, with future upgrades to achieve a range of up to 700-800 km.

          Let the Yankees plow Cuba. The main thing is to have time to hit the United States from Cuba before Cuba is plowed up. And if the Yankees will plow Cuba, then we need to plow Germany and Great Britain. During a nuclear war, all people will not be residents.

        Remains today Venezuela (Maiketia airbase).
        On this score, the Yankes also plan to fill it with a new medium-range missile capable of flying up to 2023 miles [2000 km] by 3700.
        To accelerate development, these weapons are likely to be derived from a missile already in use by another branch of the US military.

          Russia also has a lot of things to hit on US bases in Europe. But let's not hit.

          How did you decide that the United States would strike at Russian bases in Cuba or Venezuela? Do you think that the US wants to get 1550 nuclear warheads on its cities? Given that the United States has no more than 3 dozen unreliable interceptor missiles.

          In 1961, the USSR was not at its peak. The USSR had 300 nuclear warheads, and the USA had 2000. In addition, the agreement between the USSR and the USA on missiles in Cuba concerned only medium-range missiles. So the deployment of long-range aviation and submarines in Cuba does not contradict the agreement. Let me remind you that the Soviet submarine base in Cienfuegos survived the USSR itself. A radio intelligence center and a training brigade in Lourdes existed until 2002 and were unilaterally closed. There is no agreement with the US to prevent Russia from rebuilding these facilities. It remains only to come to an agreement with the Government of Cuba again.

    Trump decided to flex his muscles before the election? Yes, let them burn the resource of technology as much as you like, so long as the air defense system is not opened. But in fact, such plans for an attack on Russia, I think, have long been known to everyone and counteraction has been worked out, although, to be honest, I don’t know what we can counter in a strike from the North. Where almost all the air defense was dispersed even before Serdyukov. And so, it seems that this is even more political than a military sign for Russia. Therefore, they do not "play" at the same time by all forces and means, but from time to time, by far not the strongest components of the triad - if only the media wrote about this in the United States and Trump looked cool.
