In the US, raised in the air, the so-called doomsday plane is airborne command post, established on the basis of “Boeing-737”. It is designed to the highest political and military leadership of the US and allows you to run the country, if the ground infrastructure is destroyed after the nuclear explosions.
According to the independent monitoring of resource CivMilAir aircraft on Wednesday, April 11, circled over Indiana. The CPSU up in the air only by order of the President or the head of the Pentagon. Only the US has four such aircraft. One of them must always be ready to take off into the air on demand.
The plane is Packed with the most modern equipment and communications and protected against electromagnetic pulse that occurs after a nuclear explosion. Boeing air refueling could stay airborne for more than a week. Food supplies on Board, enough for about a hundred people.
As told “MK” a military expert, Deputy Director of the Center for analysis of strategies and technologies, Konstantin Makienko, it is unclear why the aircraft still needed to raise in the air, “it is possible that Washington wants to show its resolve. In fact, now on Board the ship must be the entire U.S. political establishment, which soon waiting for a nuclear attack on ground-based nodes and control points”.
The expert believes that in America now the media is aggravating the situation, and the rise of the air command post — one of its elements. “It’s really starting to cause concern: apparently, in America decided to cowboy to see who has the strongest nerves. Importantly, the US leadership did not play in the media “war” and not let the situation out of control,” — said Makienko.
The expert recalled that in the fall of 2016, after winning the trump in the election, the air is also raised airborne command post.
Russia has armed, too, has its “doomsday” plane. It is made on the basis of the Il-86 is designed to manage all types of Armed forces. A distinctive feature of our plane — it completely lacks portholes. Well, in “war games” he’s probably not playing.
