    Some kind of nonsense. Buk-M1-2 is not a very fresh complex. Here BukM3 is another matter.

      it is unlikely that these are new Buki ... sooner one unit was rearmed with something new, and 1-2 were sent to re-equip the old Kopeyki ...

          What are you talking about? I really do not like it when bomb carriers roam around our borders, and even more so in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk!

    That's what life-giving B-1 flights do! It was worth circling the Laptevs over the sea and near Sakhalin ... how finally, instead of selling to all the Turks and the Chinese, they remembered their own air defense system ...

          Well, the S-500 solves a few other tasks - satellites flying in low orbit and ballistic targets.

    It's high time, there is no more "hole" than the Far Eastern Federal District in Russia! -except Vladivostok and Vilyuchinsk. I think it is clear why! Already in the Sea of ​​Okhotsk, the Yankees feel at home.
