The United States deployed B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers to Europe, the planes arrived in the UK. This is stated in the message of the European Command of the US Armed Forces (EUCOM) on Twitter.


Four American B-52H strategists have been deployed to Fairford Air Base in the English county of Gloucestershire, which is the forward base for the deployment of American bombers in Europe. Along with the aircraft, auxiliary equipment and personnel of the 5th bomber wing were transferred to Europe.

According to the EUCOM command, the task of the B-52H Stratofortress will be to participate in a "long-planned mission", no details of this "mission" are given, but with a high degree of probability these bombers will again work out maneuvers near the Russian border in the Kaliningrad region and Crimea, as it has happened many times before. Earlier, during one of these missions, one of the US Air Force officers said that in Europe, B-52H crews are getting to know the future theater of operations.

According to available information from the British press, the preliminary stay of American strategists at the British airbase may be ten days. Fenford Air Base in the UK is used by the US as a forward base for its bombers in Europe. It was from this air base that B-52s took off, bombing Yugoslavia and Iraq.

The Boeing B-52H Stratofortress is a strategic bomber that has been in service with the US Air Force since 1955. During its operation, it has undergone several upgrades, is capable of carrying different types of weapons, including nuclear. Despite the imminent appearance in the US Air Force of the latest B-21 Raider strategic stealth bombers, the B-52 Stratofortress will remain in service for a long time to come.

    The next 4 pieces of the 52nd are ready to shoot at targets with missiles from the north.
    Ours will feed them.

    And now strategic aviation has arrived, I wonder if the growing world tension has a side chapel at all or does it not?

    There is nothing good in this. But not very scary either. It seems that the arguments of the opponents are running out. All the weaker "on the mountain" roll out.

      There is no good. Arguments quite serious roll out.
      Whether or not these arguments are given depends on
      how decisively and successfully they will act
      our troops. There are already doubts that they will act
      almost gone. With deep regret. APU - trample.
      And we will have to question Ukraine. Peacefully we
      we can no longer separate. No wonder the States are evacuating everyone.
      They stirred up this mess. And to disentangle everyone else ... hi

        I think we will leave peacefully. Fear will stop them... Everyone wants to live. And live well.

          They are counting on fear to stop us.
          Both Biden and Johnson need a military victory.
          They gathered forces for the demolition of buildings in the LDNR.
          Now their main task is to keep Russia
          from intervention on the side of Donbass. It's them
          fail. And they will not stop the APU ...
          Everything is simple with Ukraine. Should money? Well, fight.
          Once weapons were brought in for $1,5 billion, it means war.
          And there are still private traders, as detachments,
          brought in a good amount. But private traders do not
          Zelensky obey. Here is such a picture.
          PS. I also thought that we would part peacefully, alas ...

        The information that was stipulated by chance is the truth, preparation for war, the warrior let slip!

    Another step to increase pressure on Russia. In Iraq, they launched AGM-86C cruise missiles with a range of 1200 km. But Russia also has strategic bombers and cruise missiles, and it will definitely respond, and this is a big war.

        Yes, the usual moral pressure on us and training for them.
        This is too little for a war. And the plane is already too outdated (albeit repeatedly modernized) and well observed by radar.

    In the West, they shout in unison that Russia, by concentrating forces on its territory and conducting exercises, threatens not only Ukraine, but also the eastern flank of NATO, which for some reason ended up at its borders. And how should we perceive the transfer of strategic bombers carrying nuclear weapons? Or is NATO (read Anglo-Saxons) just tickling Russian nerves by creating positions for itself in negotiations, and therefore it is, as usual, "different"?

    So why make a sensation out of it? This air base is American and strategic bombers are permanently stationed there. It’s just that the 5th with the 2nd aviation wing periodically change, and, accordingly, different aviation squadrons (in our concept of a regiment) from these wings. There, even on the territory of this air base, shops sell for dollars. And every year there is an international air show "Aviation Dawn" where we visited in 92 and 94 on our Tu-95MS aircraft.
    There is no need to strain the situation on this fact, before that something was not very worried about the deployment of aircraft there.
