Russia stages mock attack on Norwegian radar station, jams GPS

Russia stages mock attack on Norwegian radar station, jams GPS

At first, it seemed like any other Russian training exercise. A flight of 11 Su-24 ‘Fencer’ strike aircraft took off from their air base on the frosty Kola Peninsula, flying out over the Arctic Barents Sea. But, suddenly, the supersonic aircraft swung about, sped up, and formed into an attack profile — aimed directly at a nearby Norwegian outpost.

Only at the last possible moment did they veer away.

The target of the Russian attack aircraft was Vardo, Norway’s northernmost town.

The fishing village is built on a small island in the Barents Sea. It’s an ideal vantage point from which to observe the concentration of Russian military facilities built on the nearby Kola Peninsula.

It also sits under the direct flight-path intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) would take if launched against the United States. Which is why Vardo is home to a powerful radar system designed to track rocket launches and objects in space.
