    two Russian Tu-142 aircraft that entered the air defense identification zone of Alaska
    a pair of Russian Tu-142s approached the US-Canadian border while patrolling in international airspace without entering United States sovereign airspace.
    What is unusual here if the air defense detection zone is much farther than the border of territorial waters? Or does America already consider the entire World Ocean its territorial waters? So far, apparently - no, but it is going.

      Actually, yes, he does. Including the Northern Sea Route.
      And while no one can put in place, he will count.

    it was necessary for the MiGs to work out a conditional strike with "Daggers" on air defense objects, if only the State Department cries about the "unprofessionalism" of Russian pilots wassat

      The Tu-142 has its own tasks, and the Tu-160 has its own. They can practice long-range and medium-range TFR launches with the practice of evading enemy air defense maneuvers in their area of ​​responsibility. It is worth practicing combat missions in a complex.

    As they entered, they left ...
    To say that this is the implementation of some kind of control over the situation ... well, very conditional, that's it.

      Yes, they gave the pilots to warm up, so that they do not sit on the ground and do not lose practice hi
      The aircraft spent in the air exceeded 11 hours. During this time, they covered more than 8 thousand kilometers.

        It is NECESSARY to train! But, I would very much like to wait for the appearance of a new, really WORKING technique !!!
        So that at the mention of her, their boats dived to the very, most and did not "gurgle" at all.

    Taking into account the fact that from the coast of Alaska to the coast of Russia is less than 100 km, and the "identification zone of the air defense of Alaska" certainly captures half of Chukotka, if not further, an event of a global scale has occurred. laughing

    Tired of listening to manipulations about air defense zones.
    And if we have an air defense zone at the Edwands base, then what, every time to write in the newspapers how a US plane takes off there?
    There are country borders and nothing else.

    Planned flight, US airspace was not violated, so everything is within the bounds of decency. The Americans do not express dissatisfaction, ours having flown 8000 km and interacting with MiGs have worked out their tasks.

      If I'm not mistaken, some comrades wrote that you are related to naval aviation, for some reason I remembered about the Tu-22. What flights should there be?

        Tu-142 - anti-submarine aircraft, and use
        they are necessary for their intended purpose, to search for IPL. These
        "patrol" flights are only for reporting
        on TV, they have no military meaning.

          Clear. Isn't it possible that for open access information is just about patrolling, but in fact there was a search for submarines?
