    Three B-52 Stratofortress and more than 200 Air Force personnel - is this a global operation? But what about the sudden exercises in the Russian Federation, when they raise a whole district with soldiers and equipment? Apocalypse?

        Do not be nervous. It’s just the Americans ’toad strangling after using our Long-Range Aviation in Syria. We decided to show that they are not bast.
        Only now our strategists have worked out the entire route from their airfields, and they have to use the services of "comrades in arms."
        But after all, today he is your friend, but not tomorrow. So, what is next?

        No, it’s not worth it, it’s best to conduct joint exercises with the Air Force with Venezuela, three of our Carcasses under the cover of their Sushki will take part in the "anti-terrorist operation." It is necessary to create hotbeds of tension near their borders. Then someone will think

      The next attempts to scare Russia, the main thing is that from these attempts the NATO members themselves do not put on their pants when our radars take their planes into sight.

        Another attempt to scare Russia

        So it's very convenient when such exercises are held near the borders of Russia! You can save a lot on fuel for your reconnaissance ships and aircraft. Moreover, Norway is so close that it is possible to deploy an entire reconnaissance and research complex that will analyze not only control channels, but also check their noise immunity and cryptographic strength in real conditions. Maybe even a couple of combat viruses can be thrown into NATO computers, let them "rejoice".

      Was our General Staff notified?
      Someone demanded a training plan from Russia.
      If you haven’t provided a plan with a move of strategists, is that a threat?
      Minuteman 3 again launched the question. Why?
      I do not like all this.
      By the way, who knows how the volcano is there? Maybe nature itself will send the mattress to the laundry.

    Three bombers ... three tanks of the new ... infantry battalions are also three ... all that was acquired in NATO by hard work ...
    But seriously ... NATO has control systems for troops and weapons in Europe ... for control points (there are training with virtual reality there) no matter how many pieces of equipment are involved ... they just check the real control channels and the coherence of various troops and headquarters ... In my opinion it is ineffective ...

        The article clearly says about the US nuclear triad, which means that even the training load will not be "pig-iron", the carriers will be moved to the front lines, so far 3, but how many more will be?
        This is, so far, a one-sided threat of use, we must somehow respond!
        IMHO

      True, the B52, although American, is in its own way a very interesting and beautiful aircraft. On par with carcass 95, a wonderful symbol of their country. I don’t know if we have it in the aviation museum, if not, it could be purchased, it would be interesting to inspect. The Americans bought a lot of ours in their museums, even submarines. Sincerely.

    Three B-52 Stratofortress and more than 200 Air Force personnel ... sent today to the Moron Air Force Base in Spain. Multifunctional heavy bombers will be integrated and will conduct joint exercises with the European command of the US Armed Forces and regional allies and partners

    And why in Spain, and not the Great Brutality? No one asked this question?
    It seems to me that the Swedes-Norgens are just a screen for building up forces in the Mediterranean.
    According to all reconnaissance signs, there is a build-up of forces in the CE theater. Apparently plan "B" has a real basis. And the amas strengthen this basis.
    Probably in the near future we should wait for a message about the direction of the next AUG to the Sre Sea.
    Saudi I-Bs have already relocated to the Turks. What's next?

      I wonder hi .
      Theoretically, it can be assumed that the implementation of any invasion plans is possible after some preparation for the coordination of personnel of various types of troops (command, communications, combat support) when operating on an unfamiliar theater.
      I think, from two weeks to a month, until fully prepared for combat work.
      That is, they will strain until the end of March. Well, our staffers too.

    "And he still beats - a healthy devil! I see - there will be trouble.
    Indeed, boxing is not a fight, it is a sport of the brave, etc.
    So he hit one, two, three - and he lost his strength.
    The referee, whom I did not beat, raised my hand.

    He lay and thought: that life is good ...

    I totally agree! IMHO, no demonstrations should be made; demonstrate enough in Syria. But to conduct a good training session is very useful: the NATO team is working on one of the likely theater of operations for one of the likely opponents, and we are doing the same. And without provocations, of course; provocations if arranged, then on the borders of others.
