Russian nuclear bombers simulated attacks against neutral Sweden’s capitol Stockholm on Good Friday this year. Sweden’s air-force was unable to intercept the two heavy bombers Tu-22M3 (referred to as Backfires by NATO) their four jet fighter escorts. How ever, NATO fighters from Denmark and Lithuania were scrambled, and met the Russian attack-planes. Over the last couple of years, Russian bombers have dramatically increased these simulated attacks against their neighbouring countries.                                                                                                                          (Training sortie against Sweden)                                                   (Russian bombers intercepted in the Pacific)

Doccumentaries like this, are now causing political disturbance in several of the Joint Strike Fighter partner countries. Could a collapse in Locheed Martin destroy NATO Air superiority?
