“Two B-1s can launch 48 LRASM (long-range anti-ship missiles) at the Baltic Fleet. — RT),” RIA Novosti quotes the text of the article.
It is noted that this may be enough to sink the entire fleet in one go.
In addition, as the publication notes, due to the long range, the LRASM B-1 will be able to fire on Russian ships anywhere in the Black Sea from NATO airspace.
Earlier it was reported that American strategic bombers flew over the Black Sea.
