In the United States, they called the tasks of the B-1B Lancer bombers deployed to Norway

The American B-1B Lancer strategic bombers deployed to Norway will begin flights in the Russian border area within three weeks. This is reported by CNN, citing sources in the US Department of Defense.


According to information provided by sources, American bombers will begin flights beyond the Arctic Circle and in the region of the northwestern coast of Russia. The main task is to promptly respond to Russia's actions in the Arctic.

The transfer of B-1B Lancer bombers and 200 support personnel from the 7th Bomber Wing of the 12th Air Army at Dyes Air Force Base in Texas to the Norwegian airbase Orland was announced by the US European Command (EUKOM) on February 2, 2021.

It is noted that Orland airbase is located about 300 miles (more than 480 km) from the Arctic Circle, and the fifth generation F-35 Lightning II fighters of the Royal Norwegian Air Force are deployed there. Also, the airfield is the temporary placement of the American E-3 Sentry AWACS aircraft stationed in Germany.

The United States has repeatedly stated its "concern" about the deployment of a military group in the Arctic region. The Americans are particularly concerned about the deployment of S-400 surface-to-air missile systems and Caliber cruise missiles in the Arctic.

The deployment of American bombers in Norway is intended to compensate the United States for the lack of an icebreaker fleet and surface ships capable of operating in Arctic conditions.

      They will simulate the launch of nuclear weapons in Murmansk, Arkhangelsk, at our military bases and the military-industrial complex in the Arctic.
      In return, it would be necessary to strain the Americans in the Western Hemisphere, it would be time to rent a military base near Florida for our Swans and Bears.

        Why do we need a base in Florida? Our swans carry missiles with nuclear warheads, which do not require, as in the old days, a mandatory breakthrough and entry into the enemy's air defense zone. Take off and launch the hotel on occasion from our airspace. Of course, the time for the arrival of US missiles from Norway is shortening to the utmost, but if our air defense provides a counter-missile strike, then there will be no sense in placing their bombers in Norway.

          The Florida base is very much even needed, as you already answered, to reduce the time of arrival of tactical missiles with nuclear warheads. In addition, it is very convenient to conduct reconnaissance there by scanning all radio frequencies nearby.

            It's hard for us without an ocean-going fleet, because the cat cried even to cover the naval bases, and covering the nuclear submarine missile launch areas is a difficult task.
            Why do the Japanese climb the Kuril Islands? Apparently, because while the Kurils are all ours, the USA cannot sleep peacefully, because inside the Kuril ring - our essentially internal sea, where we can deploy anything.

          Are you sorry, is this serious? I am embarrassed to ask, which military analytical center or operational department of which headquarters are you? For what purpose did you write this nonsense here, without even understanding the essence of the question? The questions are rhetorical; they do not require an answer. I consider further communication to be meaningless and not interesting.

        There is no need for "Bears" and "Swans", unless to equip a jump airfield, and even then it is more convenient and safer in Venezuela.
        But it would be very useful to deploy a squadron of MiG-31K with "Daggers", fighter cover and air defense cover in Cuba.
        And the base for Long-Range Aviation must be built in Venezuela.
        And there is also a naval base, including for submarines of the Yasen type and the promising Borey-K.

      The armament is located on the territory of Russia, but the Yankees, as always, stick their long nose where they don't need to.

    will demonstrate their presence in the Arctic, showing "protection of the principles of freedom of navigation" along the Northern Sea Route)) ... and constantly provoking and imitating entry into the zone of our interests and bases on the islands ...
    it was impossible for Medvedev to sign a territorial division with the Norgs, even if this hook did not give them freedom further due to the uncertainty of development options in the disputed areas ... especially since they are in NATO ...

    They will start, they will not start, but the Americans will have problems with the operation of these products in the regions of the Far North. Delivery of fuel, operation and maintenance of aircraft at subzero temperatures .. Although Norway does not have such frosts as in Yakutia, for example, but nevertheless ... Sending people and equipment is no longer easy, but to an area with a climate that is worse - This is problem

    It is necessary to introduce into the military doctrine - those countries that have provided footholds for aggression are subject to destruction, with the deportation of the remaining population.

    The Yankees have worked out the technology: first, they try to embroil Russia with its neighbors, stir up fear. Then, like a "good" uncle, they stand up to defend the "offended" "aggressive country" ...
    The Norwegians are already ripe ..... now they have taken up the Finns too .... but about the Swedes, you yourself are happy to wave .... and so on in a circle of our borders. There is nothing to say about the Balts, they have "love" to the west will pass when subsidies stop ... then they will start looking again for a sponsor in the person of Russia ... but as long as they are well fed, so they bark.

    Hatred of Russia is the only type of racism and xenophobia in the West that is not condemned, but hotly supported.
    By the way, this is what the Norwegians themselves write about it:

    If B1B is transferred there on a permanent basis, it will be the first time since the beginning of the Cold War. Never before have American strategists been based in Europe. We flew in for 2-3 weeks to participate in the exercises and flew back. There were only 2 regiments Fb111 in England in the 80s, which were later removed from service
