The United States deployed four B-52 strategic bombers to Europe

The United States deployed B-52H Stratofortress strategic bombers to Europe, which arrived at Fairford Air Force Base in Gloucestershire, UK. Pentagon spokesman Patrick Ryder announced this at a briefing.

Four B-52H strategic bombers began their planned deployment as part of a task force in the US European Command area of ​​responsibility. The main task of these bombers is to practice joint actions with allies to carry out strikes, as well as to demonstrate the US commitment to the alliance with European partners.

“Four U.S. Air Force B-52 Stratofortresses began their planned Bomber Task Force deployment to the U.S. European Command area of ​​responsibility this week.”, said General Patrick Ryder.

The duration of the stay of American bombers in Europe has not been announced, but it is assumed that they will be there for several weeks. During this period, the B-52H crews plan to practice maneuvers near the Russian border, in particular, in the Kaliningrad region and Crimea, which has been practiced many times before.
