South Korean air force jets fired 360 rounds of warning shots Tuesday in response to multiple Russian military planes that entered into the South's airspace, officials said.
Seoul officials said three Russian military planes two Tu-84 bombers and one A-50 airborne early warning and control aircraft entered the Souths air defense identification zone off its east coast before the A-50 intruded in South Korean airspace.
An unspecified number of South Korean fighter jets, including F-16s, scrambled to the area and fired 10 flares and 80 rounds from machine guns as warning shots.

No such thing as a Tu-84 bomber.
It’s signal fire. It’s not intended to hit.
Like Alaska, this looks to me like someone is testing responses, reaction times, and basically overall defensive readiness.
I think their abacus needs to go in for some maintenance too.
Lol.. communism takes slide rulers too? Darn. I guess comminism and socialism aren’t mathematical possibilites, thus explaining the new “math is racist” push.
These stories are so common, I always get a kick out of the overly-excited responses people give to it.
Yea really, this was extremely common during the height of the Cold War. At least, poking around each other’s airspace. Not sure about flares and such.
Why not just shoot them down?
It was a Russian TU-95, but 11 feet shorter.
WHAT????!!! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND??????!?!?!? THIS IS THE START OF WORLD WAR FIVE!!!!! JUST REMEMBER THIS: No matter how HORRIFYINGLY PAINFULLY TRAGICALLY AWFUL it really is, it is a MILLION times worse. Then things get *really* tough. After that, HORRIBLE things happen, and then we REALLY get screwed. Immediately following that, the BOTTOM drops out and we are all DEAD, and THEN things get HARD! Once that happens, it signifies the TOTAL collapse of EVERYTHING, and that's when the CATASTROPHE starts! It's the sign of the end of EVERYTHING, but after that, comes the TRAGEDY. Then times get DIFFICULT, and things get WORSE, until it's EXCRUCIATING, but that's just the beginning, because after that it's all PAIN.
Just ringing the bell. They do it to us. We do it to them.
Because of this:
Maybe it was a 1984 Production of A TU-95 ?
When? And WHY WASN'T I INFORMED!
Or maybe it’s just one of those Metric System conversation things.
Could Russian investors have a piece of the new Topgun movie and they are doing this to create interest and help market it?
