F-35 Fighter Jets OUTRUN by Large, Bulky, Russian T-160 Bomber
6 Comments

Two state-of-the-art F-35 Fighter Jets were OUTRUN by an old, large, bulky, Russian T-160 Bomber over the Sea of Japan on Nov. 3, as the F-35's attempted to intercept the T-160.

The American fighters “lost sight” of the Russian Aerospace Force bomber, which easily moved away from them.

The Tu-160 was performing a routine flight on November 3 over the Japan Sea when two F-35s approached, one on either side, intending to escort him. At this point, the Russian bomber suddenly accelerated, triggering the afterburner and increasing the speed to Mach 2.05.

The two F-35A fighters also reacted, but a little too late. When the acceleration was turned on, the F-35 radar still detected the Tu-160, but the pilots no longer saw it.

Noteworthy while the Tu-160 has a top speed of Mach 2.05 (1570 mph) the F-35A reaches Mach 1.6 (1200 mph).

The 110-ton Russian aircraft was able to easily move away from the 13-ton American fighters.

Fighters from NATO and Allied countries are constantly trying to control all flights of the Tu-160 and other Russian bombers.

The Tupolev Tu-160 “Beliy Lebed” is a supersonic, variable-sweep wing, strategic bomber. The Blackjack is the largest and heaviest combat aircraft, the fastest bomber currently in use, and is the largest and heaviest variable-sweep wing airplane ever flown.

The aircraft entered operational service in 1987, and as of 2016, the Russian Air and Space Force (RuASF) fields 16 Tu160s. The Blackjack fleet has been undergoing upgrades to electronics systems since the early 2000s. The first upgraded Tu-160M has been delivered in December 2014.

    The Berlin Wall Fell and people assumed the Old Soviet Union (Communism) was Defeated. Yet, there was “A much greater Story never conveyed to the American Public.” President Reagan (Hollywood Actor) knew how to make a good Movie, even on the Presidential Stage, projecting to Citizens of America whom wanted Reasons why so much of the National Treasure was Spent on Huge Nuclear Arsenals. So the decision made was to “Project Power instead of a Warning.” This worked out great for Our Republican Party (member). But how about Reality? I bring this up because the Real Danger has Kicked into High Gear. What is that Danger? “The IDEA consummated by both the Democratic and Republican Parties,” that, “Russia is still Our Bitter Enemy,” whom, “We can Defeat in a Nuclear War.” This Assumption is High on the Political Agenda today in Washington DC. Especially among those “Conspirators (Congress & Deep State) Involved in the Coup D’etat,” against, “The United States Federal Government (President Trump Administration),” whom have “Assigned Nuclear Bomb Shelters,” called, “Deep Underground Military Bases or D.U.M.B.S,” which “They (Congress & Deep State) go too,” and “Can live Underground in Comfort for Years (Necessary).” This Action would help Them (Congress & Deep State) Evade Justice (Charges of Treason), but would Absolutely Destroy Planet Earth. People would not be able to live on the surface of the Earth. In other words, “You and I normal Citizens shall Die a Horrible Death.” Please let that sink into Your Minds. Radiation from most Nuclear Devices (after use) takes over 50,000 years to disappear, allowing “People to Return to Earth’s Surface.” Look at this Chart of the Current Nuclear Weapons as follows: The Berlin Wall Fell and people assumed the Old Soviet Union (Communism) was Defeated. Yet, there was “A much greater Story never conveyed to the American Public.” President Reagan (Hollywood Actor) knew how to make a good Movie, even on the Presidential Stage, projecting to Citizens of America whom wanted Reasons why so much of the National Treasure was Spent on Huge Nuclear Arsenals.

Radiation from most Nuclear Devices (after use) takes over 50,000 years to disappear, allowing “People to Return to Earth’s Surface." I certainly hope, that at this point, “You see you are Doomed in the Event of a Nuclear War.” To further my point, “Look at what happened in the Russian Chernobyl (Nuclear Plant) Disaster.” April 26, 1986 Level 7 (Maximum Severity) Nuclear Accident, “Killing untold scores of People.” This is, and was, “The Real Reason Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev (1990-1991) Dissolved His Communist Government,” called, “The Soviet Union.” President Gorbachev saw the Horror of the Chernobyl Nuclear Disaster, and Thought, “What if there were a Nuclear War,” between, “The East and West?” He (Gorbachev) concluded, “The World would be Destroyed,” and further, “This Madness (Insanity) had to End.”


    Gorbachev, the eighth and last leader of the Soviet Union was General Secretary of the Communist Party from 1985 until 1991 and leader of the Soviet Union from 1990 to 1991. Now 88, he is widely praised for preventing World War 3 and bringing an end to the Cold War through diplomacy with US President Ronald Reagan. On Monday, he appeared on a BBC Radio 4 show ahead of the 30th anniversary of the Berlin Wall’s collapse, where he warned the world is in “colossal danger” of nuclear wipeout. Provided by EXPRESS…

    Hence, “The Soviet Union (Communism) Ceased to Exist.” But Our Congress, Military, and Intelligence Agencies (17 Reported – Many Unknown) have “Failed to Tell American Citizens,” that, “Russia was No Longer a Communist Enemy of a Free Capitalist United States of America.”
    Yes, Russia has an agenda as a Nation. Most notably, “Russia,” became, “A CHRISTIAN NATION.”

    Either, “Change Your Thinking Towards Russia with the Current Cold War,” or “It shall Become Hot.” The Results of a Hot War (Nuclear – *Billions of People Shall Die) can be found in the Bible section called, “The Book of Revelation.”

    They sent a boy to do a man’s job. The F-35 is a stealthy night attack aircraft but is a second rate fighter. The F-4, F-15, and F-22 could go as fast as the Blackjack, but the latter two could do the supersonic escort mission better. To go Mach 2 takes a variable intake design, and to go faster needs titanium structure to withstand the aerodynamic heating.

    So in short the Tu-160 doesn't even have to hit top speed and the F-35 is dust in the rearview mirror absolutely shameful.....

    The F-35 is a pile of junk whose sole purpose is to supply dividends to Lockheed shareholders......
