I first read that as the U75 fleet.
That's a good point well made, and certainly Russian military intervention of any quality can serve to obfuscate and interfere with others' plans. I wouldn't necessarily say conclusively, but perhaps enough. It has its limits though, and those are drawn from what it can and can't do, at once, militarily.
I think it means an expansion previously unheard of by Russia into Asian-Pacific states. I think it’s interesting, and probably dangerous for the region. I think new money for Russia will be created by putting both feet in the emerging Asian-Pacific markets. I think the symbolism of albeit apparently clapped out bombers in the region carries more weight than the bombers themselves.
I reckon any major engagement would make Putin realise quite quickly that building an empire on corruption, embezzlement and racketeering is not great for the effectiveness of your military. Wouldn't be surprised if half his tanks were made of papier mache.
Tu-95MS dropped some Kh-20/22 missiles in Syria. Who knows where they ended up but they did release weapons...
Russia's traditionally been a land power. Syria intervention was airstrikes and troops on the ground helped that putain had a goal keep assad in power.
The west goals were muddled slap IS support some rebels but not too much and err em.
Be neighbours with russia and not in Nato behave or else.
Anywhere else Russias ability to act is extremely limited

6,950kms away from Indonesia actually hopefully they won't shoot up any fishing boats on these outings.
And yet somehow I missed that Russian influence on my last visit to Indonesia, Philippines etc.
