RUSSIA LAUNCHES MASSIVE AIR FORCE EXERCISE WITH 250 AIRCRAFT
News from The Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP) -- The Russian military has launched a massive exercise involving 250 aircraft and other weapons.

The Defense Ministry said in a statement Monday the drills will involve air force and air defense units of the Central, Western and Southern Military Districts totaling 12,000 servicemen. Combat aircraft will deploy to temporary bases and air defense systems will be sent to the Ashuluk and Kapustin Yar shooting ranges in southern Russia for training with live ammunition.

It also said long-range Russian bombers will launch cruise missiles at practice targets at a Siberian firing range.

The exercise is part of a series of Russian military maneuvers taking place amid tensions with the West over Russian actions in Ukraine. The current drills are preparation for even more massive Center-2015 maneuvers set for later this year.

The Russia bear is waking up. Russia also has a new type of tank with a robotic turret. The tank when displayed had mechanical difficulties but it is a revolutionary design. People forget that the original German Tiger tanks where intially plagued with problems and France's LeClerc tank with its cameras instead of view ports had problems initially also,
