Spanish press: Putin already has a replacement for the "doomsday" plane, but Trump does not

The United States and Russia are the two military giants with the largest nuclear arsenals in the world. In addition, these are the only countries that are armed with air command posts (VKP) - "Doomsday planes". However, if Russia is preparing a replacement for its outdated VKP, then the United States continues to use the old ones. Writes about this Spanish edition El Español.


In Russia, from the 80s to the present, the Il-80, an improved version of the Il-86, has been used as a "doomsday aircraft". This is an air command post prepared to house the Russian military, including the supreme commander in chief, the president.

The existing VKP based on the Il-80 are already outdated, so the plans of Russian President Vladimir Putin include replacing the "doomsday aircraft" with a more modern version developed on the basis of the Il-96-400M. It is expected that the new Russian VKP will take off in the next year, 2021.

The old plane is planned to be replaced with the Il-96-400M. This will significantly increase the period of combat duty in the air and expand the range of the command of troops.

- quotes the Spanish edition of the message of the Russian media.

It is expected that the new Russian air command post will not only have the same capabilities as the Il-80, but it will be supplemented by modern technical innovations.

US President Donald Trump also has his own "doomsday plane" - the E-4, based on the Boeing 747-200. Moreover, unlike Putin's Il-80, Trump's E-4 took off for the first time in the mid-1970s and is still flying.

The American plane, like the Russian one, is designed to carry out command in a nuclear war. It is also equipped with special systems capable of providing communication in the event of a conflict and can fly for more than 150 hours in a row thanks to air refueling. Despite the fact that it is also outdated, there is nothing to replace it with.

Thus, Russian President Putin will soon have a new replacement for the "doomsday plane," but Donald Trump does not yet have a replacement of this level.

      For the VKP "presidential level", perhaps it is not too important which board is used for it, how important its electronic "filling" is, which requires updating to meet modern requirements.

        That is, the expected decay: we, as martyrs, will go to heaven, they will simply die, and Putin will sit out in a flying bunker.

          and Putin will sit out in a flying bunker.
          So is Trump. And then they will fight on their hands, figuring out who will be in charge of the destroyed ball called the Earth. But not for long because
          and can fly for over 150 hours in a row thanks to mid-air refueling.

          Not the fact that there will be someone to refuel

          They cheered me up, my applause.
          The article itself is empty: the Americans have been fighting for several years for the implementation of the project of a new VKP, where the price seems to go off scale and the choice of platform is not great: B747-800. Work is underway and no doubt they will replace the old E-4. The Russian VKP will also not appear tomorrow and is also limited by the choice of the platform. It's not all fast - the article is basically an attempt to remind you of yourself, the information load is zero.

        Connie after the oil price collapse, another such collapse
        and the volatile RF will bark "meow!" What am I doing ?? In our highly enlightened age, information can be obtained not only from the first channel or directly ... from Margarita Simonyan ... You can find out that our share of supplies to Europe is decreasing, and debts are increasing, competitors are increasing the supply of raw materials. When they create the necessary balance for the energy protection of NATO, then this will be the month of May and until June 22, it remains only to count the days. And there are questions about what kind of rapids await your energy island. It won’t be able to live independently, but Russia is not in a hurry to join you. live well!

          And I wish you this without any false soul, but Moscow is retreating to Moscow. We are handing over the Armenian Caucasus, soon NATO peacekeepers will enter there, and the 102nd deserves it. And rightly so. Everyone will not like you, they tried to pose as a "third force" in the Karabakh conflict, and the third force is NATO's southern flank

    It seems to me that all these "doomsday wars" are the last century. There are no prerequisites for the massive use of nuclear weapons. Only finance should be spent on these developments, which are mega-expensive, besides

    The countries of southern Europe have recently made us happy with the news that they exist. Then the Portuguese from Portugal will say their word about Russian territory, so much so that circles along the Black Sea go all the way to Portugal. Now the Spanish comrades are concerned with something. What does Spain care what the Americans have and what the Russians have? Europe must be vitally interested in order not to become a theater of operations again. Otherwise, it’s not even an hour, they will miss it again, as some "eagles" will fly from the Bavarian Alps on the day of judgment.
    For example, we are more interested in what is happening there in Spain with the monarchy, since we are tired of reading the headlines where I will not save from the British royal house, which has already filled everything, as if according to the scheme of communicating vessels in one place underground. I want some kind of royal variety.

    Why did the Spaniards become interested in the planes of the "loan day" of Russia and the United States? If it starts seriously, then what's the difference, let alone the Spaniards, on which planes (most likely the last) presidents will fly.

    Thus, Russian President Putin will soon have a new replacement for the "doomsday plane", but Donald Trump does not have a replacement of this level yet.
    Will there be Trump himself by that time? There are several days left until it is clear who should fly on such planes.
