Tu-95 bombers flew near Alaska

69



Russian strategic missile-carrying bombers Tu-95 flew within the US defense zone near Alaska and the Aleutian Islands, The Washington Free Beacon reports on Monday.

According to the publication, the US air defense systems detected two bomber near the Aleutian Islands 28 and 29 April.

Representative of the US Northern Command, Bill Lewis, confirmed that American fighters were raised to intercept the aircraft, but he refused to give details.

According to him, the two F-22 identified Russian bombers on the night of April 28 when they left the agreed flight area near Alaska. Lewis stressed that Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace.

As noted by The Washington Free Beacon, air defense forces in Alaska are used by the US military to monitor both civilian and military aircraft, and the launch of the F-22 fighters is an indication that the appearance of bombers created a potential threat to the US territory.

Recall that in March, the American media tied the allegedly conducted exercises of the Russian nuclear forces with the frequent flights of Tu-95 strategic bombers. In particular, February 16 reported that fighters were raised from the US Air Force base to intercept two Russian strategic bombers Tu-95, which allegedly flew around the American island of Guam in the Pacific Ocean.

The US military reported that they had discovered two turboprop strategic bomber on radars, according to NATO, that bear the nickname "Bear." The F-15 fighter jets flew out to their potential interception from the US Air Force Andersen base.

It was reported that "contact between American and Russian aircraft was at a professional level," without incidents, and that Russian bombers remained in international airspace all the time.

The US military explained that the long-range flight of two Russian bombers, which involves refueling in the air, they spotted from radar and satellites as soon as the Tu-95 took off from an airfield in the north-eastern part of Russia.

For his part, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense for the Air Force said that no scheduled flights of bombers in the Pacific have been conducted recently.

    For his part, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense for the Air Force said that no scheduled flights of bombers in the Pacific have been conducted recently.

    Why hide it, or in the Moscow Region they themselves do not know where Russian aviation is flying.
    According to him, two F-22s were identified by Russian bombers

    Another interesting phenomenon, the Americans use the latest 5th generation invisible fighter as an interceptor. This is so that the intruder does not see who shot him down.

            And the meaning is accompanied? In the event of war, they don’t really need to come back. Just drop bombs / rockets and that’s it. And spending fuels / resources of fighters that can really PROTECT their territory, their people is stupid.

        Yeah. The theme of Alaska should be heard all the time, everyone should remember that this is Russian land, and it is time to give it away. With fagot differently impossible, they understand only the fist. Just as Russia constantly makes territorial claims, so Russia must constantly remind and fight by all means: force, legal, political. Always the best means of defense was and is an attack. Not in the literal sense, but in all aspects. And justified territorial claims have always been and are a sign of superpower.

          Well, if the Khryaptor was sent to intercept, then the Bear was walking on a shaver. Otherwise, the pilot in Khryaptor would have gone to certain death - he suffocated from a lack of oxygen.

      Here is the real question ++++++, apparently only from the press identified (and from the Western press). Well, the "carcass" flew by, we will shout urya ??? circled near the Aleutian Islands, but "Russian aircraft did not enter US airspace"We survived, we rejoice and are surprised in fact that our planes fly. The question is how many NATO planes hang out daily near Russian borders ?!

                  Let's just say there are two different cases. First, the Americans themselves gave the corridors to the terrorists. In the second case, the councils, due to the mess and gouging, lost the plane and thereby allowed it to land in the square.

                    There was no gouging, the plane was discovered, and fighters passed over it twice. But there was an oral order not to bring down civilian planes. And this flight was organized by special services (possibly the KGB) in order to remove the USSR Minister of Defense.

          I would like to recall the political and psychological situation in the country and the Armed Forces before Rust's flight in those "blessed" Gorbachev times. Immediately after coming to power, the MSG was dragged into the Soviet media, as if on a command from Washington, the topic of the downed Korean Boeing, Kotor. In 1983 he entered our airspace in the Far East over strategic objects, did not respond to requests from the ground and tried to hide from interceptors. The pilots of the MiGs, sent to intercept, clearly followed the instructions and orders and shot down the intruder, which would have been done by any air defense of any other NATO country and absolutely legally if, for example, a TU-154 circled over their military bases and did the same as boeing. But, instead of an apology from the violating state, the USSR received a portion of dirty accusations of allegedly unlawful murder of passengers, for which. the Washington provocateurs clearly had to answer. The intruder stayed in the airspace of the USSR for a long time, while the pilots did not respond to the dispatchers' requests, and the Boeing course was somehow strangely passing over the strategic objects of the Ministry of Defense. Our media broke loose, accused the bloodthirsty military of a crime, the pilots were even dragged to the broadcast of the central TV, where the tearful announcer asked them questions about how they felt in the role of killers. After this rabid company, conflicting directives began to flow into the troops. clearly did not comply with the orders for the combat use of air defense forces and means. Pilots and unit commanders. made scapegoats, did not know how to behave. If you shoot down, they will be punished, or even condemned, if you do not shoot down, they will also be punished .. In this "favorable" situation Rust flew. He was spotted immediately, but no one took the responsibility to give the order to destroy the small-sized low-flying target, everyone waited tensely until reports of landing on the descent in front of the Intercession Cathedral were received. The military were again made scapegoats. The Minister of Defense, Marshal Sokolov, and many commanders of formations and units, in the area of ​​responsibility of which were removed. there was an intruder.

Well, you don't have to fly past our southern Kuriles - Iturup, Kunashir, Shikotan and Habomai. it is also desirable to appear there more often. It is desirable to even establish another base for strategic long-range aviation there. The entire Far East region will be covered. All of East Asia with Japan and northwest America (Alaska), and without refueling in the air.

    On our strategic aviation planes, it is possible to suspend flights with a launch range of up to 3000 km. And the new X-101 and X-102 missiles will fly at a range of up to 5000 km. So it’s not necessary for our planes to fly so close to Alaska. To reduce the state of Alaska, launches can be made over Yakutsk.

        Better buckets that are used in carcases instead of toilets

        And often do you endure?

          It lives on that. He takes out and wipes for his owners a small share - a basket of moldy hot dogs and a barrel of sour kaka-kala.

          Yes, somehow it did not have to. But if this interests you so much, then ask the pilots, they will tell you in detail how to carry and take out

            It is clear, that means you are not present near such planes. Tady, maybe you have something to do with the supply of such items to the Air Force? In this case, at least educate those who do not know about the labeling and the number of products supplied ... although the latter is superfluous, refers to classified information, your company must have a "nondisclosure" agreement. wassat

              And what is it so the buckets outraged you! Well, designers did not foresee a closet; well, you have to fly with buckets. What can you do when crew comfort is sacrificed? But the pilots are not coddled, hardened in difficulties lol not like pampered Americans who prefer to fly in comfort winked

                Do you think I am outraged by the presence of buckets? You are mistaken, I am "tolerant" to these products. laughing

                Are you concerned about the comfort of combat pilots or do you know the design conditions (TTZ) of this type of aircraft?
                But if you really appreciate comfort on combat liners, then do a good deed: order-pay compact bio-toilets and send them on airplanes. You look, your rack name from the chassis will be called ...
                And if you thickly troll with the delights (latent) of Amer’s weapons and try to throw the demerzo with fanfare - Duc, this should not be done here, but on Amer or Japanese sites - there it will be positively perceived. So - banzai!

                and you try to get to the source of this stuffing - figs will work. A similar one could be written by someone who does not distinguish a scupper from a frame, for him another thing is more important - presence on Bolotnaya Square. So - feed yourself on such slops, I - on the side of the like.

    Even if ours flew, it was a planned combat duty in peacetime, well, what if they raised their f 22, if it were a sortie, they would go without cover.

      Passed similar in 08.08.08. When our troops entered Georgia (Georgia), by the way, they have the state of the same name in this republic, so the residents searched the streets for Russian tanks when they heard the news that the Russians were in Georgia.))) I understand that the Pindos are stupid, but still I think this is a fun story :)

    Let's just say there are two different cases. First, the Americans themselves gave the corridors to the terrorists. In the second case, the councils, due to the mess and gouging, lost the plane and thereby allowed it to land in the square.

    No one lost him, I talked with people and are still in the service, our interceptors led him from the moment he entered our airspace, there was simply NO ORDER to shoot him down.

    Good article, that's just the name is strange. Especially considering modern slang. As if they were denied basing in Alaska, well, or the navigator missed by accident laughing

    I’m wondering why our bombers almost always fly unaccompanied. They would have a couple more Su-35 and it would be great!

    Not just a couple, but a link of 3-4 fighters is quite appropriate in this case)))
