According to this resource, the aircraft simulated the bombing of the Baltic Fleet. PlaneRadar also discovered the US Air Force anti-submarine aircraft Boeing P-8A Poseidon, which conducted reconnaissance along the Russian Black Sea coast.
Boeing B-52H Stratofortress can carry various types of weapons, including nuclear and precision weapons. He entered service with the US Air Force in 1955.
In early March, the American reconnaissance aircraft RC-135 was intercepted over the Baltic. The Russian Su-27 fighter forced him to withdraw from the border areas of Russia, after which he returned safely to base.
