Found this online, its the route that a pair of Russian White Swans (TU-160) taken to fire missles on Syrian Targets 9link, looks like they are sabre rattling again. I also found a link saying that there is a hunt for a russian sub seen off the coast of Scotland, link does anyone have any more info on either story, or if they are related some how ?

It's training. They're not only testing weapons over Syria, but they're also doing navigation and refueling training on the way in.

They're modernizing the Tu-160, and are talking about building new aircraft to add to the fleet. They planned on having five upgraded and two new airframes built by the end of the year.

The best way to test the upgrades is to put them to use. That includes flying an 8,000 mile mission.

Modernising the fleet is a good step forward for Russia.Needs get away from the days of political corruption where the Soviet armed forces were virtually mothballed.
