Go tell it the marines...


As has been noted elsewhere, Putin and Co hve been cosying up to the Venezuelan thugocracy, in particular by sending a couple of TU-160 Blackjack bombers yonder.

Cue gratuitous aeroplane picture:Separated at birth from the B1 Lancer, maybe?


Enough of the Avpr0n, "According to [Lt. Col. Vladimir] Drik, the bombers are carrying dummy missiles without warheads and their primary mission is to practice patrol sorties in a tropical climate". Source

After all the Voyenno-vozdushnye sily Rossii has much reason to mooch around in the tropics with its fleet of 16 Blackjacks, nuclear capable after all.
