France confirmed the interception of Russian Tu-160

France raised its combat fighters to intercept Russian supersonic Tu-160 bomber.

The incident, according to official data, occurred as early as the middle of last month, while it was known about him, however, official confirmation from the French military command was not received. Literally on the eve of the day, this information was indeed confirmed, and, as the French representatives noted, the combat fighters were lifted into the air solely to prevent the country's airspace from crossing, while there was no real threat from the Russian bombers.

Among other things, information resource Avia.pro notes the fact that last week the foreign experts expressed a high degree of superiority of Russian strategic bombers on almost all currently existing combat aircraft of that type.
