Ah, starting to feel like old times. Miss the Cold War....
TU-95 "Bear" Strategic Bomber
Sure glad 90% of our military is in Iraq where it belongs!
It really is funny to see Tu-95s threatening The Nimitz battle group though... That's pretty much the technological equivalent of an infant threatening a Marine with a BB gun.
it's funny that we worry about a country that uses prop bombers, when we have our very own.
I was going to crash you....but I chuckled too hard.
Fixed it for ya.
Maybe we should bring back the B-36 peacemaker
Russia likes to fly bombers where they shouldn't be.
I don't get the significance. Yes you can fly over the carrier however, there's been 2 F/A-18s with AMRAAMs aimed up your ass for the last 50 miles. It's hardly intimidating.
a Northrop YB-49
I love how Russia thinks they're fucking relavant.
F-117 Nighthawk stealth fighter
they wouldn't know what hit them.....
Maverick and Iceman would never have let them get that close.
Tower, this is Ghostrider requesting a flyby.
Negative, Ghostrider... the pattern is full.
Charlie: So lieutenant, where exactly were you?
Maverick: Well, we...
Goose: Thank you.
Maverick: Started up on a 6, when he pulled from the clouds, and then I moved in above him.
Charlie: Well, if you were directly above him, how could you see him?
Maverick: Because I was inverted.
Iceman: [coughs whilst saying] Bullshit.
Goose: No he was man, it was a really great move. He was inverted.
You just quoted Navy pilots and showed Air Force planes. I loff at you, sir!
Fact is we are a fading republic. Soon we won't be THE superpower anymore.
We try to fight a politically correct war, instead of being truly fearsome.
Our enemies laugh at us, and gather strength.
We're done sooner than some might think.
Makes me very sad.
I blame it on the whites.
Politically protecting your majority status, eh?
I blame the liberals.
I blame it on the Clintons hell, our military decline started on Bill's watch.
"I blame the blacks"
eh, the must have finally had enough cash to fill the planes
Jews are much worse. Just say'n............
Kidding of course.
I doubt it's the Russians we have to worry about, sir.
My question about this is how the Bear made it that CLOSE before being intercepted. 50mi is WAY too close and is well within firing range... There should've been a patrol aloft that could've gotten there in mere moments and then launch the other fighters to cover the fleet.
Maybe, just like in Top Gun, "the catapults broke". *sheesh*
