National Interest named Russian weapon "which Biden should be wary of"
The Russian Federation has a strong army equipped with sophisticated weapons and military equipment. This defensive power is highly regarded in the United States.
The military potential of Russia is discussed by the American author Trevor Filset, whose article was published by The National Interest.
The US press called the formidable Russian weaponthat President Joe Biden should be wary of. According to the author, these are heavy bombers Tu-160, or "Blackjack", as they are called in the North Atlantic Alliance.
Despite their venerable age, these aircraft are still considered the largest and heaviest representatives of the bomber aviation... The closest competitor of the Tu-160, the American B-1B Lancer, which was born a little earlier than the Russian, has a more modest size and weight.
While still in service with the USSR Air Force, the aircraft set many world records, including records for speed, maximum take-off weight and flight altitude with large loads on board.
- the author suggests.
In fact, the Tu-160 strategic bombers are clearly not the only Russian weapons that America should reckon with. It should not forget, for example, about Russian nuclear submarines and hypersonic weapons.
It is assumed that it is precisely about the reduction of armaments that Biden's conversation with Putin in Geneva on June 14 may first of all go.
