Impressive video about the most fearful Russian Air Force bombers

The following video shows some of the most lethal planes of the “Resurgent” Russian Air Force at work.

The footage, most probably aired by a Russian TV, was filmed at the strategic airbase of Engels, in the Volga Ural Military District, home of a huge Moscow’s strategic bomber force, including Tu-160, Tu-95 and Tu-22 aircraft.

More than 40 bombers are believed to be based there.

Air-to-air footage of these “exotic” bombers makes the video worth a look.
