Two RAF fighter jets were scrambled on Tuesday to intercept two Russian planes on course for British airspace, it emerged yesterday. The incident marked the latest escalation of tensions in the standoff between London and Moscow.
So Russia was willing to sacrifice two bombers over this? Because you know they didn't stand a chance against two Tornadoes. That's an odd move, Tu95s can't be cheap. All in all I think that would have been a bad move by Russia.
