The B-52N strategic nuclear bomber of the US Armed Forces conducted a training flight over the Baltic Sea. The plane was loaded with training ammunition.
Simultaneously with the bomber above the Baltic, there were several more reconnaissance aircraft. They were an American RC-135W aircraft and RQ-4A drones, AWACS British long-range reconnaissance aircraft and Swedish Gulfstream 4. – all of which were tasked with watching the territory of Russia.
On January 9, three strategic bombers B-52H were transferred from the USA to the UK. They will take part in the Lithuanian-American exercises.
B-52H is the main American carrier of nuclear weapons.
Imagine the headlines, if the situation concerned Russia’s largest nuclear carrier, along the shores of the US.
