Russian nuclear-capable Black Jacks skirting British coastline force Britain to scramble Typhoons

The Britain's air defences were alerted yet again as two Russian nuclear-capable Russian supersonic bombers skirting British coastline forced it to scramble Typhoons.

Although no threat to Britain, nor Russia trying to intimidate anyone but the presence of such aircraft cannot go unnoticed. The Black Jacks are capable of carrying 16 short-range nuclear missiles

RAF pilots visually identified the Tupolev Tu-160 'Black Jack' bombers and escorted the two flying off the coast of Northumbria away from the UK area of interest.
