    Original title: "Russian airborne forces invade Fort Carson, Colorado Springs..."

    ...For the first ever joint Russian-US anti-terror training exercise


    http://rt.com/news/russian-american-airborne-drill-923/

    For the first time in history, Russian and American airborne forces will hold joint drills in the US. The anti-terror exercises scheduled for May 2012 will get off to a flying start with a tactical landing operation and “terrorist” camp raid.

    *“This is the first time such an event is being held,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Aleksandr Kucherenko stressed, announcing the plan. “The Russian airborne will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons.”

    The drills were arranged by the Russian Airborne Command and a US military delegation in Moscow last December.

    Russian soldiers will receive preparatory training in Colorado’s Fort Carson with the US weaponry and equipment they are to use during the operation. The drills include parachuting, operation planning, reconnaissance, assault operations and evacuations by helicopter.

    “According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including reconnaissance of an imaginary terrorists' camp and a raid,” Colonel Kucherenko revealed.

    The drills will take place between May 24 and 31. But it’s not all work: on May 27, the Russian paratroopers will get a chance to unwind at a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

    Seriously though, its nice to see the Russian and US forces working together in training, says good things about the relations with our former adversaries IMO.

    Makes sense. They're fighting Islamofacists in Chechnya and we're fighting Islamofacists in Afghanistan. Why train together in order to fight the same enemy?

    Well, while commies are evil, they wouldn't shoot up a school.
    It would basically be a "We come in peace, to save you from the capitalist oppression" kind of occupation.

    Yes, 'facists'. Even if you had managed to spell that correctly, I don't think that's a real ideology.

    i don't see how that could be assumed from his post
    it's pretty obvious what he was implying
    if soviets ever did actually invade the US, there'd be less "kill everyone" and more "subjugate the public with clever usage of propaganda"

    Me and my brigade just got back from training at Fort Carson a few weeks ago..I wouldn't be surprised if another brigade from the 101st was the U.S. unit they were talking about.

    I agree to a degree. It's like that instance during the "Blue House Assault", where the North Korean soldiers attempted to teach the two children about communism instead of just outright killing them.

    Winning the hearts and minds are the biggest part of any occupation, and you don't go getting those by shooting up schools.

    Nice to see they're working together.

    Actually, a World in Conflict style invasion would probably be the most accurate example of communism invading America. I really wished they make a movie on it. The movie would had been excellent.

    There really isn't an accurate portrayal of Communism invading America.

    Either it is simply a full on attack where they slaughter civilians using air strikes and armored vehicles, or they have no hope. Can't control such a heavily armed population. Resistance pockets would be near constant.

    In the case of World in Conflict, the cargo ships would have been detected loooong before they arrived and been noted as being out of the ordinary. We have an extensive network of buoys dedicated to listening for ships and submarines for just such an occasion. Not to mention patrol aircraft.

    Invading the US is really pretty much a non-starter. Better to just enjoy entertaining fiction than quibble too much about the details.

    The Russian fighters would be flying over American soil. Besides the fact the the F-22 is actually a superb air-superiority fighter, we would also have SAM support and other AAA to use against them.

    Edited:

    Also the SU-35 Flanker is non-stealthy, it would never see the F-22 before it's killed. And the SU-47 Berkut is only a prototype. Also non-stealthy. The Berkut is just Russia waving it's e-dick. It's nothing but a demonstration platform.

    Edited:

    In summary, the Raptor actually is the best fighter aircraft in the world today.
