Russia’s Ready For Nuclear War with NATO: Deploys Doomsday Plane?

Russia’s defense industry has completed a number of tests of the airborne strategic command center aboard an Ilyushin Il-80 aircraft, which will be used by Russia’s military on battlefields when there is no ground infrastructure in the area, and when communications from ground facilities have been disrupted, according to RT.


To this day, the United States was the only country in the world to possess a command center of this kind. The new generation flying command center is a modification of the Il-86 wide-body jet airliner, and is set to enter service in Russia’s military by the end of 2015, according to Russia’s United Instrument Manufacturing Corporation (UIMC).
The Il-80 command center has significantly improved performance in terms of survivability, functionality and reliability, while the electronics on board have drastically reduced power consumption, according to the manufacturers, as reported by RT.
The flying command center, which has already been named a ‘doomsday plane’ by the Pentagon, carries senior generals, staff officers as well as a crew of technicians who look after the aircraft’s technical equipment.

Doomsday plane has full control over Russia’s armed forces

The flying command center, thanks to its technical capabilities, is capable of managing and distributing tasks to all units of Russia’s armed forces: ground forces, aerospace forces, Navy and strategic missile forces.
Moreover, NATO, in the event of a military confrontation against Russia, will struggle to destroy the airborne command center because its main advantage is its “invincibility,” according to Aleksandr Komyakov, director general of the production company that designed the command center.
“While [command] installations with known ground positions could be eliminated, an airborne command post is a target hard to disable because it shifts continuously. The Americans call this type of aircraft “doomsday planes,” Komyakov said in an interview with ITAR-TASS.
The doomsday plane’s main task is “establishing [communications] networks in extremely unfavorable circumstances, with ground infrastructure missing or destroyed,” according to Komyakov.

World War 3: Russia will destroy NATO – report

The news come as the tensions between NATO and Russia have dramatically escalated after an incident that has already been named the most dangerous military encounter between NATO and Russia’s forces in over 50 years.
Last Tuesday, Russia’s Su-24 jet was shot down by Turkey in Turkish airspace. The Turkish military claims it had issued 10 warnings in 5 minutes to the Russian jet, but it ignored all the warnings and the two F-16 jets were sent to destroy the warplane.
The Russian Defense Ministry insists its fighter jet never violated Turkish airspace, and was flying over the Syrian territory.
Turkey, which is seemingly protected by NATO’s 5th Article, which states that an attack on one Ally shall be considered an attack on all NATO members, could find itself all alone in an imminent war with Russia, according to analysts of Russia & India Report.
While in theory the U.S. and other NATO member states are treaty-bound to come to Turkey’s defense, the chances that the Americans would be willing to risk New York for Istanbul are “smaller than small,” the report noted.
Moreover, it should not be ruled out that the “hothead” NATO member state – Turkey – could attack Russia on its own, the report suggests.
