The Russians are coming! First joint ‘Top Gun’ drills to be held in US — RT

For the first time in history, Russian and American airborne forces will hold joint drills in the US. The anti-terror exercises scheduled for May 2012 will get off to a flying start with a tactical landing operation and “terrorist” camp raid.

­“This is the first time such an event is being held,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Aleksandr Kucherenko stressed, announcing the plan. “The Russian airborne will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons.”

The drills were arranged by the Russian Airborne Command and a US military delegation in Moscow last December.

  1. Now you know how I felt in 1991 and Desert Storm when we had our Allies, the Syrians, fighting on our flank!!!

  2. Look, I know Tzar Putin is a real life Bond villian, and we shouldn’t trust him as far as we can throw him. But this still strikes me as very cool.

    1. I actually think it IS pretty cool. And Buck, it was a serious mind-trip seeing the Syrians toolin’ around in their T-72s.
