Russia’s Sukhoi Su-27 intercepts US Air Force RC-135 and Swedish Air Force jet – Watch


Russia is leaving no chance to show its military might to the United States of America and its allies. On June 10, a Russian Baltic Fleet’s Air Defence Sukhoi Su-27 fighter intercepted a US Air Force RC-135 and a Swedish Air Force Gulfstream reconnaissance aircraft near the Russian border. This is the third instance of just about a week when the Russian and US forces have come face-to-face.

The face-off between the Su-27 and RC-135 along with Gulfstream reconnaissance aircraft, a video of which was posted by the Russian Defence Ministry on its Facebook page, took place over the Baltic Sea where NATO is holding the 47th annual Baltic Operations (BALTOPS 2019) from June 9-21.

According to the Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation, the Su-27 was scrambled after its defence forces detected two air targets approaching the Russian border. Read More
