The US Air Force, preparing for war with Russia, buys Soviet planes for training its pilots, writes The National Interest.
Thus, the US Army has already acquired three Soviet MiG-29 fighters for training, which were delivered “from the territory of the former Soviet Union.” It is noted that all aircraft are equipped with the original parts.
The publication emphasizes that there are a number of companies providing services for the supply of Russian military equipment, in particular Tactical Air Support and Draken International, which provide a full range of air equipment, from the latest versions of training aircraft to the MiG-21.
Meanwhile, even the Soviet multi-purpose fighter Su-27 has fallen into private hands: Pride Aircraft helped import two planes from Ukraine. According to the publication, one of the fighters was sent to Nellis Air Force base in Nevada, where it was used in training battles against the American F-16.
In the US, they are preparing for war with “cardboard” Russian tanks
Earlier it was reported that the US Army Ministry posted an order on the state procurement portal for the creation of full-size mock-ups of the Russian T-72 tank. The announcement states that copies of the Russian tank are necessary for the US Army also for conducting military exercises.
