F-22 against "Bears": Fifth generation fighters climbed to intercept the Tu-5 of the Russian Aerospace Forces in the Alaska region

43

On the evening of October 19, American aircraft aviation were raised on alert to intercept Russian Tu-95s traveling in international airspace in the Alaska region.


The information about the interception appeared on the official page of the Joint Aerospace Defense Command of North America (NORAD) on the social network Twitter. According to the American military, F-22 fighters intercepted 2 Russian Tu-95 bombers, called "Bears", accompanied by 2 Su-35 fighters.

In addition, NORAD's means identified a Russian A-50 long-range radar reconnaissance aircraft located 50 nautical miles off the coast of Alaska.

At the same time, the Pentagon noted that all Russian aircraft were in international airspace and did not violate the borders of the sovereign US airspace. Nevertheless, NORAD forces, which are supposed to quickly respond to such situations, raised fighters to intercept.

The flexibility and readiness of our staff ensures that we successfully manage potential aerospace threats,

- emphasized the commander of the US Northern Command, General Glen Van Herk.


It should be noted that the Russian military department emphasized the planned nature of the flight. Both Russian and American military aircraft make such flights quite often. For example, American planes periodically appear near the Russian borders in the Baltic and Black Sea regions.

Not so long ago, a plane of the Royal Air Force of Great Britain cruised over the Barents Sea, to accompany which our MiGs took off.

      What does this have to do with it? Tu - 95 carries X-101 missiles, which themselves fly well, at 5,5 thousand km. He, in fact, does not need to come so close to the territory of the Mattress for nothing. yes

        This is unknown to science. Science is not yet in the know! (C)
        Now, after the first combat use of this world-famous complex in the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict, we can discuss the excellent quality of the S-300.

          But India is dissatisfied with the resource of Russian aircraft engines, considering them twice as inferior to American ones.

            name me at least one US-made combat fighter in service with India. Are you trying to throw it on the fan again?
            India has only transports of American aircraft. Hopefully enough is enough to tell the difference between a turbojet fighter jet and a theater of heavy-lift aircraft?

              There was a time of purchasing Soviet fighters. And even Russian, when India was under Western arms sanctions in connection with nuclear weapons tests.
              But that time has gone irrevocably, and at Indian tenders, products from the Russian Federation are now swept aside, first of all, in favor of the same "Rafal". And the Indians scored on the Su-57. Isn't it?

                what is swept aside and what they scored to guess is like a finger in the sky. In tender procedures, the assessment of the aircraft itself is only 50%. And the rest is its cost, the equipment transferred, training, the possibility of integrating it into their ACS by aviation. Well, such bonuses, which Asians are very fond of now, are the permission to localize all or part of units and assemblies.
                but the Indians could evaluate the engines only during operation. But they have no operating experience either Pratov or GE

            Uh-huh ... they were already unhappy with the quality of Russian engines once. True, later it turned out that these were Indian engines, and the reason for their failure was poor assembly and poor maintenance in parts (everything that looked like oil was used as oil in engines). smile

              Come on .. Like, fools themselves? India has repeatedly complained about Russian fighters in recent years. It is enough to look at the headlines of past years. 2003: India suspends supplies of Su-30MKI fighters, the reason is engine breakdowns. 2015 - auditors from Delhi considered that the Russian fighters were not reliable enough in operation. A year later: India claims that the deck-mounted MiG-29Ks have many defects and shortcomings. Two years ago, the same MiGs again fell out of favor, now for problems with the power plant.

              And the other day India put forward an ultimatum to Russia because of the frequent breakdowns of fighters.
              India has decided to suspend the use of MiG-29K fighters. According to the local Air Force, the planes have a weak spot that Russian aircraft designers have not fixed for many years - the RD-33MK engine. This is the jet engine that MiG uses in all of its recent projects.
              As the Indians write, the engine has problems with fuel manifolds and increased oil consumption, it breaks down too often - 15 times in the past years. As a result, a kind of ultimatum came out of the letter: either Russia is fixing the problems of MiGs, or we are not buying them. And the contract there is significant - almost $ 2,5 billion.

                ... Defense Minister Manohar Parikkar said that the Indian Su-30MKI fleet is experiencing big problems with the level of serviceable aircraft, primarily due to breakdowns of the power plant.
                India operates a modification of the Su-30MKI, which is not very different from the Algerian version. At the same time, according to the Minister of Defense, it is known that the Indian Air Force has already had five accidents and 69 incidents. with AL-31FP engines manufactured by HAL since 2012... Of the 69 incidents, Parrikar said, 33 were caused by swarf in the oil, 11 were caused by engine vibration, and eight were due to very low oil pressure. Accusations were made regarding poor build quality, as a result of which a fatigue effect quickly set in, causing cracks, which led to the appearance of metal fragments and an oil circuit. The investigation also drew attention to the quality of the oil. By order of the Indian Ministry of Defense, measures were taken: the use of better quality oil, alteration and replacement of welding and fasteners between mechanical parts.

                In short, the engines turned out to be Indian. And the reliability problems were caused precisely by the quality Indian assemblies of engines and Indian service in parts.

        The bear does not carry the Ha 101 in the inner compartments. It can only be carried out on external suspension systems, which is prohibited by the dying START-3. Perhaps the latest modifications can do this, but this is not known. So the flight and interception is absolutely peaceful. We flew around our domain. They guard their domain. Clearly by agreement.

      Our journalists still need to master the terminology. The Americans took off not to intercept, but to escort. The interception ends with the shooting down of the target aircraft or interceptor. This is ACCOMPANYING.
      Our dryers did nothing for the same reason, well, they fly nearby and let them fly. We also accompany their planes.

      it is necessary to conduct a new test of "Zircon" in Kamchatka, or better - in Chukotka, so that such "escorts" are generally urgently evacuated from Alaska.
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      The environmental disaster in Kamchatka could have been caused by the tests of the Zircon hypersonic missile. This version is presented in the material posted some time ago on the pages of the domestic media.

      the Americans reported that they intercepted 2 TU 95 and 2 SU 35.And they saw 50. But ours write that there were 2 more MiGs and 31 naval aviation. Amers did not say a word about them. I have the right to fantoise The A50 and MiG 31 bunch did their job. probably waiting for debriefing, for Migi 31. Or the author specifically missed it for fun. good
