Tu-160Rusia a anuntat ca a trimis doua bombardiere strategice Tupolev Tu-160 tocmai in Venezuela. Oficial, este vorba de un exercitiu tactic al Fortelor Aeriene, dar neoficial este un mesaj pentru cei care se indoiesc de capabilitatile militare ale rusilor.

Bombardierele au decolat luni, 28 octombrie, de pe baza aeriana Engels, aflata in apropierea orasului Saratov, si, dupa 13 ore de zbor, au aterizat pe Aeroportul International Maiquetía, din apropierea capitalei venezuelene, Caracas.

Misiunea a fost sustinuta de doua bombardiere Tu-95 Bear, acestea asigurand legatura radio.

Rusii s-au grabit sa precizeze ca misiunea a respectat toate reglementarile internationale, subliniind faptul ca nu este vorba despre un exercitiu iesit din comun.

Totusi, lungul zbor al bombardierelor strategice a fost atent monitorizat de NATO, Norvegienii ridicand chiar doua avioane F-16 pentru a-i escorta, de la distanta, pe rusi.

Tu-160, Blackjack in codul NATO, este unul dintre cele mai moderne bombardiere ale Rusiei. Aparatul cu geometrie variabila este, de asemenea, cel mai mare avion de lupta din lume in momentul de fata.

Iata imagini de la sosirea la Caracas:

Tu-160Russia announced that two strategic bombers, type Tupolev Tu-160, were deployed in Venezuela. Officially, it is an Air Force tactical exercise, but unofficially it’s a message for those who doubt Russian military capabilities.

The bombers took off from Engels airbase on Monday, October 28th, and landed, after a 13 hours flight, on Maiquetía International Airport, near the Venezuelan capital, Caracas.

The mission was supported by two Tu- 95 Bear bombers , wich provided radio communications during flight in remote areas.

Russians rushed to clarify that mission complied with all international aviation regulations, stressing that it is not an uncommon exercise. However , the long flight of the two strategic bombers was carefully monitored by NATO, two Norwegian F-16s escorting the Russians, from distance.

Tupolev Tu- 160, Blackjack in NATO code, is one of the most modern Russian bombers. The variable-sweep wing plane is also the biggest combat aircraft in the world at the moment.

Here are some images from arrival at Caracas:
