Una visita in stile 'Guerra Fredda' che appare come un supporto ad un regime ormai inviso alla maggior parte della popolazione ...

 

P.S. ... mi sono accorto solo ora che nik978 aveva già postato poco fa sullo stesso argomento in un'altra discussione ... :blushing:

😅Ma sai che è stato un dilemma sul dove postarlo.....

Volevo restare più sul generico. 

interessante anche la presenza del terzo velivolo.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeted that the deployment should be seen by the Russian and Venezuelan people as “two corrupt governments squandering public funds, and squelching liberty and freedom while their people suffer.” 
Russian government officials called Pompeo’s remark “inappropriate” and “undiplomatic.”

Difficile dirlo. Ma dal momento che hanno ripreso la produzione devono comunque fare qualcosa per portarlo agli standard odierni. Mi verrebbe da dire new radar in quanto un aggiornamento non dovrebbe richiedere voli su un banco prova. A meno che non sia un aggiornamento molto estensivo.

On Oct. 22, 2019, two Russian Tu-160 Blackjack bombers will land at Air Force Base Waterkloof in what is the first known visit of the strategic bombers to Africa.
Director at African Defence Review Darren Olivier has published on Twitter the media invite issued by the Department of Defence of the Republic of South Africa. According to the invite, the South African Air Force will host some military aircraft belonging to the Russian Aerospace Force during their visit to the country.

Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) has issued a statement about the maiden flight of what it calls “the first experimental example of a deeply modernized Tu-160M created on the platform of the in-service Tu-160” strategic bomber (NATO codename “Blackjack”). 
The flight occurred on February 2 from the airport of the Kazan Aviation Plant named after Gorbunov (local acronym KAZ, formerly Kazan Aviation Industrial Organization or KAPO) and lasted for 34 minutes. 
KAZ is a part of Tupolev, itself a UAC member. 
Headed by Anri Naskidyants, the crew from Tupolev’s flight test-base in Zhukovsky reported that the aircraft attained a maximum altitude of 1,500 meters (4,920 feet) and behaved well.
