The Russian army will receive six modernized Tu-95MS in 2020

Six modernized strategic missile carriers Tu-95MS with new electronic warfare systems and avionics will enter the Russian troops in 2020. This was announced on Sunday, January 5, in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation.

“In 2020, long-range aviation will be replenished with six modernized strategic missile carriers Tu-95MS,” TASS quoted the agency as saying.

It is noted that in 2019, the troops received five modernized Tu-95MS.

“During modernization, modern avionics, an on-board electronic complex and other equipment are installed,” said Lieutenant General Sergey Kobylash, long-range aviation commander.

He noted that modern systems installed on the aircraft during modernization, several times improve the accuracy characteristics of target destruction by bombs, guided and cruise missiles.

On November 27, the Ministry of Defense published a video of the flight of two Russian strategic missile carriers Tu-95MS.

War with Turkey: Haftar declared jihad in Libya

Khalifa Haftar, army commander, announced a general mobilization for “the expulsion of foreign forces sent to Libya.”

Marshall personally accused Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of a campaign to revive the Ottoman heritage in Libya and the entire region. In this regard, Haftar urged the Libyans to unite and take up arms against “this colonization.” He criticized Ankara’s intention to send troops to Tripoli.

“We will forget our differences, declare jihad and mass mobilization. Men and women, military and civilian, will take up arms. We prepare with all the strength and faith that God has laid in our hearts to protect our land and our honor. Therefore, we challenged this dreamer about custody of us,” the military man turned to his people.

Two days ago, President of the United States Donald Trump phoned his Turkish counterpart Type Erdogan amid permission from the Turkish parliament to send troops to Libya. It is reported by Reuters with reference to the White House. In a telephone conversation, the parties discussed the situation in the Syrian province of Idlib and Libya.

Three Americans killed in al Shabaab militant attack on base in Kenya

Three Americans – one U.S. military servicemember and two contractors – were killed by Somalia’s al Shabaab militant group during an attack on Sunday on a military base in Kenya used by both U.S. and Kenyan forces, the U.S. military said.

The military’s Africa Command confirmed the deaths and said two other Americans who work for the U.S. Department of Defense were also wounded in the attack on the Manda Bay Airfield in Lamu county, close to the Somali border.

“The wounded Americans are currently in stable condition and being evacuated,” Africa Command (AFRICOM) said in a statement.

The attack presents another crisis for Washington just as the Pentagon grapples with a rapidly escalating standoff with Iran following a Friday U.S. drone strike in Baghdad that killed top Iranian military commander Qassem Soleimani.
