"NORAD remains vigilant": A pair of Tu-142 entered the air defense identification zone of Alaska

43

A pair of Russian long-range Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft entered the Alaska air defense identification zone, where they were identified and escorted. This is stated in the message of the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD).


NORAD reportedly identified and tracked two Russian Tu-142 patrol aircraft that appeared near Alaska. At the same time, it was emphasized that the aircraft did not enter the airspace of the United States and Canada.

As always, NORAD remains vigilant and ready to defend the sovereign airspace of Canada and the United States in order to contain and eliminate potential threats to our air and sea approaches.

- announced in NORAD.

Earlier, the British Air Force reported on the "interception" of two Tu-142s. According to a RAF report, Rapid Reaction Force Typhoon fighters flew over the North Sea to "intercept" Russian long-range Tu-142 anti-submarine patrol aircraft.

Today, Rapid Reaction Force Typhoons from Lossiemouth airbase were raised to intercept two Russian Tu-142 aircraft approaching the northern borders of the United Kingdom's zone of interest.

- said in a statement.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, in order to "intercept" the Russian Tu-142 at various stages of the flight, the following were raised into the sky: a Voyager tanker, a pair of F-16s of the Belgian Air Force, an E-3C Sentry AWACS AWACS aircraft, French and Norwegian fighters.

Earlier, the Northern Fleet reported about the flight of a pair of Tu-142 over the North Sea and the North-East Atlantic. In total, the flight took 11 hours. In addition to the Tu-142, a pair of Tu-160 flew over the Barents and Norwegian Seas, spending more than 8 hours in the air.

        We have so little anti-submarine aviation that
        every flight must be used for training
        crew actions as intended, and not
        knock out a resource for show.

            Tu-142 should catch the boat, and not mix the air with screws.

            The problem is the obsolescence of what was. IL-78 is not eternal. But be that as it may, the program for 476 silt is typeset taking into account this "phenomenon". So ... And so yes, it's a terrible problem. We have to look for methods to do without fuel. I am sure that the carcasses only turn on the propellers during takeoff and landing, and when "intercepting" they do not fire. And so they plan. Look what contours allow.

    ,, It is known that Russian aircraft managed to go deep into the air defense identification zone at a considerable distance, and only after that the aircraft were discovered, which, by the way, NORAD decided to keep silent about, noting only that Russian aircraft were discovered and identified ...

    “As always, NORAD remains vigilant and ready to defend the sovereign airspace of Canada and the United States in order to contain and eliminate potential threats on our air and sea approaches,” NORAD said.

    It should be noted that practice has shown that Russian aircraft are detected by US air defense systems only when the latter are already practicing striking, and this also applies to Russian strategic bombers.
