Russian strategic bombers made the 19 hour flight over the waters of the North Atlantic


According to him, in certain sections of the route, Russian vehicles were accompanied by Typhoon interceptor fighters of the British Air Force, F-16 - Norway and Mirage - France.

“Two strategic bombers Tu-95MS ... successfully completed the tasks of the air patrol plan. The flight route passed through neutral waters in the area of ​​the Barents and Norwegian Seas, the Atlantic Ocean. The flight duration was more than 19 hours ", - RIA quotes Klimov "News".

The colonel stressed that the flight took place in strict accordance with international rules for the use of airspace over neutral waters, the borders of other states were not violated.

Earlier, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu stated that the Russian long-range aviation It will continue flights along the Russian borders and over the water area of ​​the Arctic Ocean, and will also provide a military presence in the western Atlantic and in the eastern Pacific.

      During the military operation "Iraqi Freedom" in 2003, B-2 made 27 sorties from Whiteman airbase (Missouri). The duration of sorties was more than 30 hours. During one of the departures B-2 remained in the air without landing for 50 hours

              Because you personally don’t like him?

              Northrop B-2 Spirit

              Max. take-off weight - 170 tons
              Max. speed - 1000 km / h (0,82 M)
              Max. range without refueling - 11 000 km
              Combat load - 22 ... 27 tons (depending on version)

              Freefalling and guided bombs, gliding bombs, cruise missiles


              They say "Spirit" has bad, completely unusable handling, yeah

              The composition of the avionics bomber includes a unique radar AN / APQ-181 with active headlights installed in the wing. Able to map underlying terrain 240 km wide

              Stealth is the most controversial point. From the point of view of engineering logic, there is a place to be - the "flying wing" does not have a keel and any protruding parts on the fuselage. Radar blockers in the air intakes. "Sawtooth" joints of parts and edges of hatches. Ferromagnetic paints and coatings. All this should dramatically reduce the aircraft's signature in comparison with conventional aircraft. And if the "Bear" is spotted 400 km away, the stealth bomber can be spotted much closer - m. for several tens of kilometers. What matters!

              Verdict is a powerful and modern strategic bomb carrier with its own "secrets". There are no analogues in the world in terms of the total combat characteristics


              The launch of the cruise missile AGM-158 JASSM

                Yes, but on the other hand, the Tu-95 uses the Kh-55SM with a range of 3000 km, it does not need to approach enemy bases. And there is X-101/102 with a much greater range of up to 5000 km. The AGM-158 cruise missile of the B-2 aircraft has a maximum range of maximum 800 km, if I'm not mistaken.
                In general, of course, the local rya-woodworms pretty much got it. The objective characteristics of foreign technology cause much less interest than any anti-scientific alternative story in the Fomenko style.

                  It’s not a problem to build an air-launched cruise missile, for example, AGM-129 ACM (3700 km), it’s another matter that there are no actual tasks for it

              Designed to break through dense air defense and delivery of conventional or nuclear weapons. To ensure stealth, stealth technologies are widely used: the aircraft is covered with radar absorbing materials, created according to the “flying wing” aerodynamic scheme, jet jets of engines are shielded.

        "During one of the sorties, the B-2 remained airborne without landing for 50 hours."

        Ha!))) He served in 78-80 years on Novaya Zemlya in air defense. Our eagles were already flying over the North Pole, accompanied by tankers. I don’t remember the exact duration, I don’t want to lie, but: when we went on duty we escorted them to the pole, they left our visibility zones, handed over the shift, rested, and when they started the new shift they met them in the evening, refuellers returned, and bombers and scouts later. The flight duration is exactly commensurate. These are feasible tasks for our aviation, believe me. another question is that the technique is different.

        Range of flight:
        maximum: 11100 km
        combat radius: 5300 km
        Flight Duration: up to 6,5 h

        Neither the 30th, nor even the 50th hour, smells here. in real life without refueling, this is a large fifty-meter pan with awesome filling. So maybe not hunting for her? The goal is not to miss aircraft tankers that are not provided with stealth technology.

      As far as I remember, the B-2 can only carry free-falling bombs. That is, he will have to go deeper into the territory protected by air defense, which is clearly not recommended with his "cruising" speed of 900 km / h. This car is generally incomprehensible why it was created ... And the loss of each will be robust enough to beat the owner so well. So the "owner" will ponder, but does he need it? Another "aircraft carrier", that is, a device designed to intimidate the Papuans, who do not know what air defense is.

      They will destroy how to drink ... but firstly, now is not wartime ... bombers go without cover ... all routes are agreed with the countries near which these routes pass. Secondly, he is not alone, in wartime ... while the interception will be occupied by cover, a larger percentage of those in the air will have time to launch missile weapons on board ... you’ll complete the task! This is the combat duty ... in peacetime))) that there are air strategists that are underwater. .. the routes in busy times often change ... and they are not reported to potential opponents, notifying only the allied states .. well, but in wartime they are not known to anyone except the headquarters))). This is the weapon of the apocalypse ... they’re not joking with this and the attitude is very serious, everything is thought out to the smallest detail ... two will be knocked down and eight will be shot back ... !!!!

    During the military operation "Iraqi Freedom" in 2003, B-2 made 27 sorties from Whiteman airbase (Missouri). The duration of sorties was more than 30 hours. During one of the departures B-2 remained in the air without landing for 50 hours




    because his landing gear is jammed?

    The first thing that happened after the destruction of the USSR. This is the destruction of our strategic aviation. Ukraine immediately cut all the equipment. Fortunately, Russia has remained. And now, when we resumed flights of strategic aviation, NATO became worried and howled. They are afraid, they are afraid of our strategic aviation. hi

      In 1999, an agreement was reached by which Ukraine transferred to Russia eight Tu-160 and three Tu-95 in exchange for writing off part of the debt on gas purchases.

      So nefig drive to Ukraine, then Ukrainians did everything right

        In 1996-1999, the Ukrainian leadership eliminated 29 strategic missile carriers (10 Tu-160, 19 Tu-95MS) and 487 Kh-55 cruise missiles, which were in service with the Ukrainian Air Force
        When they were cut, my father cried. He, as a pilot, really understood what they were cutting and who benefits! Reptiles showed live ((

        Looking for someone?! In the Ukrainian SSR, 19 Tu-160s were based at the Priluki airbase.
        When Ukraine became independent, then:
        - 10 pieces were cut under the "Nunn-Lugar" program (under US control and their tools),
        and the newest, all with a minimum accumulated resource.
        - 1pc left for the museum,
        - 8pcs of Tu-160 were transferred to Engels in 1999, + 3pcs of Tu-95ms + about 600 cruise missiles, at the expense of paying the debt for gas (285 million dlr.)

    It would be nice for such airplanes to fly over Europe on a shaver.
