[World Wide Web Roundup] October 25th, NATO began a two week Trident joint military exercise. On November 2, Russian anti-submarine fighter Tu-142 (Tu-142) caused a sensation when it skimmed over the US warships in military exercises at low altitudes. In response, the Russian side called routine flight.

Todays Russia (RT) reported the incident on the 3rd, saying that when Russian anti-submarine warplanes flew over the U.S. warships, the U.S. military on the flagship of the sixth fleet, Mount Whitney was busy taking photos. This Russian skim made it rare for American soldiers to see the true face of the Tu-142 bomber, whose NATO code name is Bear.

Defense News, an American military website, said that when an American soldier saw Russian Tu-142, he was deeply attracted. It was his first close-up flight to see Russian Tu-142.

According to RT reports, some tabloids, including the British Sun, have played up the incident, claiming that the Russian aircraft risked a total war with 29 allies and that it might trigger a third world war.

In response, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that two Tu-142 anti-submarine warplanes flew 12 hours over the neutral waters of the Norwegian Sea on the 2nd, and then successfully returned to the military base of the Vogda region in the north-central part of Russia, which was a routine flight.

According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, all Russian naval flights are conducted in strict accordance with international airspace rules and without violating the borders of other countries. According to reports, Tu-142 is a turbo-screw anti-submarine fighter produced in the Soviet Union, currently in the Pacific Fleet and the Northern Fleet. Tu-142 is also a Marine Patrol Aircraft modified by the Soviet Union on the basis of Tu-95MS strategic bomber, which is an important electronic reconnaissance platform in Russia besides carrying out maritime patrol missions similar to P-3C. The NATO Trident exercise was held in Norway from October 25 to November 7. About 50,000 soldiers, 250 aircraft, 65 ships and up to 10,000 military vehicles participated in the exercise. The exercise is the largest in recent years near the Russian border and the largest NATO exercise since the Cold War. Source: Global Times - World Wide Web.
